We could talk about Golden State-Dallas all day long. Quickly – we haven’t been that engrossed in a game we had no vested interest in since…Detroit vs the Lakers in 04. Yes, we were rooting for the Pistons to take down Shaq/Kobe/Gary/Karl back then – that version of those guys had a certain underdog, hard-working charm, much like Nellie’s Band of Bay Area Lunatics.
Anyway, while it would’ve been cool to see them take it in five, it’ll be even cooler to see them take it at home. The arena may very well blow up. And they are taking it – DAL got lucky as hell in winning last night, and the fact that the Warriors came back on them like they did isn’t gonna clear the German’s head at all.
Moving back to the Pistons…anyone who can explain what this is all about from Marc Stein’s ESPN chat yesterday wins a birthday cake to be determined later.
OSICK (CLEVELAND): I am so sick of hearing how bad the East is from Hollinger and yourself. I can’t wait till The Cavs, Stones or Bulls win this thing and you all have to cry about how the best team(s) didn’t win it. That being said, GO CAVS!!!!!!!!!!
Marc Stein: That’s fine. I’m so sick of hearing that STONES stuff when people talk about Detroit. It is the most ill-fitting nickname in the NBA.
We’ve been admittedly absent and disinterested for awhile, but we feel like we would’ve caught some wind of what this “Stones” thing is with regard to DET.
It sounds suspiciously like something that could renew our venomous feelings toward the more pretentious of the Pistons fans and, of course, the pretentious Pistons themselves. So what’s it all about?
(One other quick thing – thanks to Becky for this link regarding the potential of NJN-CLE. We feel better now, although we love how “lethargic” is just a natural association for the Cavaliers. We’d just assume get this thing started – the more they sit around, the more likely they are to think it’s already summer.)
