Continued from Last Post... Hand that Elimated Me

After fighting my way back from that ugly coin flip, I managed to battle back from 2000 TC to 13,000 TC and then this cooler came... Fuck You LEEEEEEE on the runner-runner gutshot straight!!! Somehow when the turn hit, I had a good feeling the gutshot Jack was coming...

The Curse of PokerStars Continues

My luck at PokerStars could very well be Pandora's Box... Strayed away from the cash games b/c of too many sick beats (scroll through the archives in the blog) and trying some SnGs now...

Check out this coin flip that I just lost deep into the tourny where if I'd have won this pot, I'd be in the Top 5 (maybe Top 3) with 21 people to go (18 places paid on the $12 buyin where 1st is $594)... I'd normally blame this on Lee Jones, but he left PokerStars so now I blame Lee for telling the new guy about his curse to me... ;-D

Random Thoughts

Nate McMillan please resign if KP isn't gonna fire your ass... (see post below as again in the Bobcat game, the Blazers get murdered on the rebounds and no Joel Przybilla in the 4th and then again in the media after the game, he says he needs to fix things and the only thing I see logical, is he being removed ASAP!!)

Marie Osmond makes it into the Dancing with the Stars Finale... WTF!! She should have been eliminated 3 or 4 episodes ago...

- Julianne Huff and Samantha Harris are scorching hot!!

This Week in Rage: Nate McMillan

I'll borrow this title from my favorite radio show's segment: The Adam Carolla Show. I won't have a top 5 like he does... I just have one thing in mind and if you read my last post or scroll down, you will know it's on none other than Blazers coach Nate McMillan...

I'm angry:

After the last two Blazer road games (a heart-breaking choke to the 76ers followed by a massacre to the Gilbert Arenas-less Wizards), I think its time KP (Kevin Pritchard) scrutinize really hard on who should be coaching this team in the future...

Having a 25 point lead vs. a very unimpressive 76ers team (minus there second best player Kyle Korver too may I add) and a 17 point lead going into the 4th quarter, a coach must think, "ok now, we have a 17 point lead on a team that just shot 70% in the 3rd quarter (and eventually in the 4th quarter too), what do we need to do to stop these guys?? Well, Joel Przybilla is a great hustle guy, my best defender, and best rebounder and the 76ers keep crashing the boards and are still shooting 70% from the field... "I think I'll let him sit the entire 4th quarter" thought said Nate in his mind while I'll let the 76ers come back and beat my team... Job accomplished... WTF!! This isn't rocket scientist Nate... And then to go into the post-game conference to say that we need to do a better job of rebounding... UUUGGGHHH!!

Now if that wasn't enough, onto the game vs. the Arenas-less Wizards... Let's continue with the same lineup of having 3 guards in at the same time and have our opponents crush us on the rebounds again... Well-done... Oh, and let's bench Sergio Rodriquez for Taureen Green after Sergio made a couple bad plays in the 4th quarter last night... WTF Nate?! How dare you bench the most electrifying point guard "Spanish Chocolate" after the 76ers game... Did you ever realize that everybody was making bad plays last night in the 4th quarter (with the exception of Aldridge and Roy)... Did Nate ever think, "Well, maybe this is my fault and not just Sergio so I shouldn't bench him b/c of my terrible substitutions and brainless coaching abilities...

Oh, and this comes to mind... Nate McMillan is a big blowhard... Remember last week after the Pistons game where he praised Sergio letting him play deep into the 4th quarter... Well, I guess his memory isn't the best either...

Just imagine a few years ago, when we had a chance to hire the Suns assistant coach Mike Ivaroni where we could have adopted this successful blueprint and have the flashy Sergio running the show... UUUGGGHHH...

What a Choke by Nate McMillian and the Blazers

That Blazer game vs. the Sixers had to be one of the worst coached games I've ever seen in history Nate McMillian's behalf. The proportion of this was similar to that of the Great Game 7 collapse that we had vs. Lakers, but only this time, it was against one of the worst teams in the NBA. In the 1st half of the game, the Sixers showed me why they are IMO one of the bottom 5 teams in the league. The Sixers at one point trailed by 25 points missed 15 straight shots. They were held to 27 points at halftime...

(Picture of Nate being clueless as usual)

The Sixers got it going in the 3rd quarter, most in part by Louis Williams energy, shooting, defense, whatever - you name it, but still, they trailed by 17 going into the 4th...

Going into the 4th qtr. up by 17 vs. a team that was shooting lights out throughout the 2nd half, what do you need Nate McMillian... DEFENSE! I don't even recall our best defender Joel Przybilla playing in the 2nd half, let alone the 4th qtr. and if you watched the game on Comcast Sports NW, you keep hearing Mike Barrett and Mike Rice suggesting that the Blazers put in Joel... WTF Nate; lead down to 13... now 11... now 7 in a flash... we need some fucking defense!! Now 5... (blink) now 1... (blink-blink) down 3 - and lose by 4... WTF!!! in Nate, this loss is SQUARELY on YOU!!

I was never a fan of the Blazers higher McMillian a couple years ago over Mike Ivaroni (former Suns assistant). With Ivaroni, you get get Phoenix's offense blueprint and just imagine Sergio running the pt. with that...

I know the my Blazers are in up and comnig team and nowhere near Championship calibur especially without Oden. In reality, it would be great to sort of tank and get a high lottery pick to get a shot at somebody like OJ Mayo or DERRICK ROSE!!

Oh, and if we stink enough, management might get their heads out of their rears and 86 McMillian. For a starters and a good suggestion, KP (Kevin Pritchard), I think Jeff Van Gundy is available...
