Teach me how to Jimmer. Lead all Kings players last night in points w/ 17, off the bench. Just sayin'.
Now that we got that out of the way, on to the NBA docket for this evening.
Philadelphia 76ers v the Chris Paul-less New Orleans Hornets. Blah. Who cares?
G-State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs. Looking forward to this one. The Spurs are without Manu Ginobili. Dude broke his shooting hand. Not good. Is it me or is he hurt alot? I think Montae Ellis, Steph Curry and G-State can hang with them. Perhaps pull the upset?
Suns v Mavs. I like to call the Mavericks PHX East. It's mainly because they have former Suns players Shawn Marion (I miss the Matrix) and J. Kidd, and it has a little to do with the fact they have a Championship and the Suns do not. Good for them. That's the difference between having an owner who cares like Mark Cuban and one who doesn't do a damn thing in Robert Sarver.
SacTown Kings v Denver Nuggets. Teach me how to Jimmer.
Rockets v Clip Joint. Kevin McHale is coaching the Houston Rockets? When the F did that happen? Blake, CP3 and their Clip Joint friends are going to blaze up the Rockets and smoke 'em.
Don't look now, but Kobe had 37 and Bynum went for 20 points and 20 rebounds.
The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Thunder. I have a strong feeling the West may come down to these two teams. Let's monitor this, shall we? Harden (ASU) had 23 points, Durant 22, LaMarcus Aldridge went for 30. He's a beast.
Norv is staying put in SD. So is GM AJ Smith. I can tell you, Chargers fans are not happy. I actually think it's a good move. Teams are too quick to break things up these days. Give it one more shot. See what happens.
With that being said, former Chargers Drew Brees and Darren Sproles are now with the Saints. The Saints do play the Detroit Lions in an NFC Wild Card game tomorrow. (The Chargers, well... they did not make the playoffs).
Three AFC West teams finished the season at 8-8. Oakland, San Diego and Denver. Crazy. The division came down to tie-breakers and in a Google like algorithm, Denver won it. I guess that is why Norv and AJ are staying put. In that division, you just got to be a little bit better and you'll run away with it.
Denver and TT15 take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tough matchup for Tim Tebow. John Elway said Tebow just needs to, "pull the trigger." Might I start the official rumor: Tim Tebow will be an Indianapolis Colt next year. You heard it. Tebow to the Colts, Andrew Luck to the Denver Broncos. (I'll be posting an article this week about why this actually makes sense for both teams).
That's it. Whew. Take a breather. Lots happening on the West Coast.
