More of Kevin Garnett's Dirty Antics



Remember the days in the WWE "Attitude" era where evil boss Vince McMahon got the reserved "ass-hole" chant from the fans... We'll the Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett is doing is best to receive those infamous chants (well deserved may I add), but instead, he gets the predictable, but I guess never too old "Garnett sucks" chant. Courteously from Basketbawful, here are just a couple of KG's asshole-like tactics:

(1) After getting a facial from Travis Outlaw, KG tries to give Outlaw a facial with his elbow. Watch closely on the replay at the 1:02 mark



(2) Two elbow attempts at LaMarcus Aldridge and then to have the audacity to put your filthy hands up and then do the hands out and say, "What did I do wrong" look after the refs copped out and gave a double technical (in which both the T's should have gone to KG)...

Nate's Greatest Offensive Scheme: 6 on 5!!

You may be laughing now about that call/play/outcome at the end of the first half, but if you look at it, it played a vital role for the entire game.

Now, you all know that its suppose to be 5 on 5. Once the refs realized (after Kevin Garnett pointed that out) that the Blazers had 6 players on the court after an Outlaw dunk, the refs huddled together and decided to give the Blazers a technical foul BUT they also counted the bucket. Shouldn't they have waived off the bucket and then gave Boston the technical free throw??

That's a 3-point swing and with 22 seconds left in the game, Paul Pierce connected on a driving runner and was fouled and hit the FT to make the score 87-86 Portland. Subtract two from Portland and Boston has the one point lead and who knows what happens at the end (probably Nate would have found some way to lose)...

All in all, I really can't complain. The Blazers won and Nate really did one hell of a job tonight. I especially like the twin tower lineup of Oden and Przybilla together (although I would of liked to see more of that in the 4th)...

Bill Simmons on Mike D'Antoni and Don't Forget to Vote 4 Rudy!!

For the 1st time in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, the NBA fans will get to vote the for the final entrant into the contest and Portland's Rudy Fernandez is one of three players on the ballot. Watch the clip below and then vote for Rudy!!

Bill Simmons has a great article up on Mike D'Antoni's "Seven seconds or less" offense relating to that of past PG Steve Nash and current PG Chris Duhon with the Knicks. A very good read making me once again wonder what the Blazers would have been like with this genius using Sergio and Rudy who are built for his system rather than McMuffin's slow and (at times) sloppy pace... Just look at all the Knicks from last season and you couldn't find a reliable fantasy basketball player other than Zach Randolph... Now D'Antoni has people like David Lee, Chris Duhon, Nate Robinson, Wilson Chandler, and even Quentin Richardson putting WAY above average numbers than they are accustomed to and they are no longer a joke and fun to watch.

Nate's Pitiful Excuse to John Hollinger

McMuffin gives his lame-ass excuse for the Clipper debacle from ESPN's John Hollinger:

I talked to McMillan about the decision afterward, and he said he didn't believe in fouling in that situation. Among other things, he pointed out that the only way you can lose is by fouling, because the player can get a four-point play.

Um... did he not see the final score???

(Repost of last paragraph from last entry):

And the fact that the Clips had 8 seconds to get a final shot off where Mike Dunleavy was dumb enough to milk the whole clock so that if the Clips were to miss, they wouldn't get a second chance. Barron Davis was probably 10 feet away from the three point line milking the clock and the Blazers had ALL the time in the world to foul and make the Clips do IMO the more improbable thing of making the first FT and then having to miss the second and then get the rebound and score... Doesn't that sound a lot harder than LETTING B-Diddy having a nice look at a three McMuffin'?
It was a double overtime classic game indeed of two most god-awful coaches of today in the NBA...

Ladies and gentlemen: Mike "Dunleaky" and Nate "McMuffin"!!

What the Blake Was That?!

Edited: 8:20 PM on 12/15/02 (scroll down to final paragraph)



Or more like What the (Bleep) was that?! Steve Blake, a CAREER 77% FT shooter shoots five FT at the end of the 4th quarter and goes 1 for 5 and the Clippers are able to force a tie and end of beating the Blazers. If you can't make your FT's, you don't deserve to win the game. My beef is still with McMuffin'... When you have Rudy Fernandez who is about 93% who had already missed his "one", why not Rudy?

And once again, what about the bad timeout management by McMuffin'. You even had Mike Rice saying on TV commentary that he'd save a timeout because you know what you're going to run and you might need it later... Well, once again, McMuffin' ignores the thought of saving timeouts and out of the timeout, the Blazers run an iso-Roy... Really?! You needed a timeout for that?!

And the fact that the Clips had 8 seconds to get a final shot off where Mike Dunleavy was dumb enough to milk the whole clock so that if the Clips were to miss, they wouldn't get a second chance. Barron Davis was probably 10 feet away from the three point line milking the clock and the Blazers had ALL the time in the world to foul and make the Clips do IMO the more improbable thing of making the first FT and then having to miss the second and then get the rebound and score... Doesn't that sound a lot harder than LETTING B-Diddy having a nice look at a three McMuffin'?
It was a double overtime classic game indeed of two most god-awful coaches of today in the NBA...

The Taste of McMuffin'... Bitter!!

Feels like a Bill Simmons's like diary... cue Adam Carolla... (Dear, Online diary...),

Remember Mike Dunleavy's timeout in the 2000 Western Conference Finals vs. the Lakers after the Blazers built a 15 or 17 point lead in the 4th quarter after Phil Jackson refused to call a timeout going down as the "Worst timeout called in Blazer history..." You all know what happened and I'll leave it at that... Well, number "# 2" happened tonight:

With a 5 point lead with 53 seconds left DRIBBLING past halfcourt, McMuffin' calls a 20 second timeout leaving the Blazers with one 20 left... Now, I can maybe understand a timeout if you're behind a bucket or two, or even up one, two, or three points.... but 5. (I notice McMuffin' loves to do these timeouts which is pure stupid and also, his calling 20 sec. timeouts after one FT so you can't advance the ball to halfcourt). I immediately told my dad that that was a terrible timeout for those reasons I mentioned above the parenthesis. Then, when the Blazers had to call a second timeout, I knew we had a great possibility of losing the game... Then, cue Mike Rice on you want to have one of these timeouts down the stretch in case of a f*** up and then a really Kevin Pritchard mind-boggled face... And what happens off the timeout... you guessed it... a turnover that turned into 3 points for Orlando to cut the lead to 2 with 29 seconds left and NOW with no timeouts, we get off a corner prayer three by Roy with a hand in his face that airballs and now Oralndo calls timeout... I tell my dad that YES, we are gonna lose this game now and low and behold... Turkoglu hits the 3 to give Orlando the one point win...

Not even with all the bloggers and forums out there that have expressed their (smart) opinions of playing Joel in the 4th quarter (McMuffin' failed to realize this until after mid season last year), to playing Sergio more, starting Batum or Rudy over Travis at the start of the season, whatever it may be... I still can't get the bitter taste of McMuffin' out of my mouth after this one...

KG vs. Jose Calderon

Another reason to hate (the most underrated asshole in the NBA) Kevin Garnett and love (the most underrated PG today) JOSE CALDERON!! I'll tell you what, if this was Rasheed Wallace taunting, not only would he have been ejected in a nanosecond, but probably fined and suspended as well...

Brandon Roy and "Four Horsemen" Blazing a Trail Late in New York

The Blazers stepped into "The Mecca" of NBA stadiums aka Madison Square Garden last night and things didn't look stellar early. The open shots weren't falling, Greg Oden put of a stinker and missed a couple of easy dunks, the Knicks were getting to the FT line w/ease, Chris Duhon was once again a super beast with 23 points and 13 dimes, and the Blazers would somehow only find themselves only down by as much as 9.

Brandon Roy would be a catalyst getting to the rim on numerous occasions to get easy layups versus New York's second worst rated defense. Roy finished with 23-6-5 (and 3 steals).

Roy had help in the second half by what I call the "Four Horseman" aka The Four White Guy (Team) consisting of Steve Blake, RUUUUUUUUUDDDYYY Fernanadez, "Spanish Chocolate" SUUUUURGIO Rodriguez, and "The Vanilla Gorilla" "Przyilla" Joel Przybilla. That's right!! This is a rare thing as I can only recall 2 other teams in my era (1983 to the present). Now you can compare us to the Jazz of the 1990s (John Stockton, Jeff Hornacek, Mark Eaton, and Tom Chambers) and the late 90s to the Kings of the early 2000s (Bibby, Peja, Brad Miller, and "Floppy D" Vlade Divac)!!

Rudy got the 4th quarter started with a few threes including a sick stepback three against the shot clock. Sergio was finding the open man and finished with 4 assists (hence the bad FG%), and hit a huge three in the 4th. Rudy and Sergio had the best "Plus/Minus" ratio of +14!!

Blake hit some timely shots when the Blazers trailed that never ballooned NY's lead to double diggits...

AND then there's Joel!! Joel got the crunch time minutes over an ineffective Oden. Joel was doing everything from rebounding and getting a number of tip in points. And on defense, when we needed a stop against a high powered D'Antoni offense, he was the man!! A great article from ESPN's Henry Abbott about Mr. Przybilla's performance on the right corner of the page. Joel finished with eight points, 14 rebounds and two HUGE blocks.

Next stop, D.C!

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

As of Right Now, Joel > Oden



An interesting piece that could be found here from ESPN. about the effectiveness of both that includes the "+/- Ratio". Looks like I wasn't the only one to have noticed this in last night's game vs. the Kings as I was screaming for McMuffin' to put Joel back in...

The season is young, but right now, Joel is the man as it's not just last night's game that Joel has been "The Savior" at the center position...

Courteously from The Main's Domain. A person known as "tuff fish" plays Mario while playing online poker (I believe on a seperate monitor as you'll hear him cuss out not only Party Poker, but him constantly dying in Mario).

I think I almost died laughing from this so be forewarned about that and the language... Enjoy!!

Soooaring with SUUURGIO and RUUUUUUDDDYYY!!!

First off, my cousin Victor had the quote of the night in regard to Terry Porter's number being retired:

We shouldn't retire Porter's number simply because Oden, Roy, Aldridge and Rudy will be better!

That's all I need to say about the Miami game tonight. Reigning triples, slashing alley-opp lob, driving "spin-cycle" rainbow, and clutch 4th quarter!! Interview with the lovely Rebbecca Haarlow after words, all you needed to hear from him was his 1st remarks: "I don't care about my points. I care about the win." Bueno Mr. Fernandez.

I was happy to see SUUURGIO get some extendo minutes in the 4th and for the second game in a row (and second of the season), it worked and are 2-0 now w/"Spanish Chocolate". Rodriguez had a nice, clutch drive, spin and baby jumper to keep the Blazer's lead sufficient. The assists were there again tonight for Sergio and he kept his turnovers to a minimum.

I liked Nate's approach early by pounding the undersized Heat team to oblivion in the first quarter. Miami had no answer as we racked up the offensive rebounds and points in the paint, which is a obscurity normally because we're a jump shooting team, but I wish we'd be more of a inside team in the paint. Nate seems oblivious as the team went away from what worked in the first quarter and Miami was able to catch up and like Orlando, was able to take the lead into the 4th quarter, despite being behind for most of the game. Fortunately, the same outcome of a Blazer victory repeated itself thanks to large part of "Spanish Fly" (SUUURGIO and RUUUUUUDDDYYY)!!

Terry Porter's Number to be Retired... My Disgust with "The Real Dirty-Thirty"...

A sad day for Blazer history as it was announced today that they will retire slimeball Terry Porter. I have previously written why and just sent a letter to Oregonian writer and 95.5 The Game's personality of the Bald Face Truth: John Canzano about my thoughts of Mr. Porter that also includes the situation between him and my father:



Terry Porter Comments and Dark Story...
Joey Wong
to JohnCanzano

show details 11:48 PM (5 minutes ago)



Canzano!!

Caught your podcast and wanted to comment about the Terry Porter (and Bob Gross) # 30 retirement. I'm not going to get into depth of the obvious stuff you talked about with there already being too many undeserving numbers being retired, Porter's numbers not being phenomenal enough...

I want to let you know the OTHER SIDE of Terry Porter: Back in the early 1990s, Terry Porter brought his new Mercedes to my father's auto body shop called New Dimension Body & Paint. He wanted to get his moldings and bumper painted to match the rest of the body of the car (about an $1,800 job). Terry was recommended to me by an acquaintance of mine named Eddie, who was a car salesman.

According to Porter, part of the deal for the new Mercedes was for Eddie to pay for the paint job of Terry's car, but Eddie never informed my dad of that... Porter than said that my dad (name So Hin) should ask Eddie to pay for the job and he INSURED my dad that if Eddie would not pay for it, then he would come back and pay for it. My father called Eddie and Eddie said to have Porter pay for it as he wasn't aware of that stipulation. When my dad tried to call Porter back, he would not return my dad's calls and messages. My father even got Kevin Duckworth (Duck, Jerome, and Damon were all customers of ours. The three were genuine people to us with Duck and Jerome being repeat customers and Duck being the most closest to my father) to leave messages to Porter about the situation and still to this day, 16 or 17 years later, not a damn thing. What is $1,800 to somebody of Porter's caliber??

Mr. Canzano, I am a big fan of your radio show and column and respect what you do. The next time you get a chance to interview Mr. Porter (or anyone from 95.5 The Game), I'd like you to bring this situation up to him and see how he reacts to this. He has no excuses!

The only numbers I recognize in the rafters of retired numbers are Walton and Drexler, and it bugs me that there are so many undeserving numbers hanging... However, the one that would bug me the most would be the familiarity of Terry Porter...

Radio friendly as you say, "jackass" is a word that I would best associate with Terry Porter.

Kind Regards,

Oh So Sweet in Orlando!!

Woah! What a refreshing way to start a long road trip for the young Blazer team. I have to admit that I didn't think we had a chance against a hot Orlando Magic team who have won four straight coming into tonight.

As the last two road games vs. the Suns and Jazz, the Blazers were able to build a nice lead early but then fade somewhere in the middle to the end. As eerie as this game was as the momentum shifted to the Magic as they headed into the final quarter with the lead, the Blazers wouldn't let the fourth quarter happen tonight.

Shutting down Dwight Howard to 6 points and 7 rebounds in the second half after
his first half one-man wrecking crew performance of domination of drawing fouls on Joel Pryzbilla in a total of nine minutes (although 3 were chicken poo calls) and scoring 23 points and hauling in 12 rebounds. Good-grief!! That's a phenomenal full game line, let alone a 1st half!!

I hate to admit this, but I liked what Coach McMillan (yes, he deserve his name to be called right after tonight) did. For once, he stuck with the bench team that helped pull away in the fourth quarter adhering from the normality of taking them out after the first couple minutes even if things were working. I also liked that Nate tried a lineup that included Roy, Rudy, Sergio at the same time, even if it was only for a minute. I don't like the fact that Nate likes to slow things down when you're the second youngest team in the NBA and you could easily have an advantage of running the elder teams around to death. A team can only stay young for so long as injuries, trades, etc happen so I think it is best that he experiment with it while he can.

Next up, Miami! If we can beat Orlando, which I didn't think could happen, I am definitely more optimistic about the Heat game. Keep Blazin'!!

Sergio Wanting to Be Traded... Say It Ain't So!!

Down with Coach McMuffin' and his stubborn and retarded tactics!!



A nice piece by Jason Quick of the Oregonian and apparently, Blazer fans responding to Mr. Quick's work also disagree with Nate's decision of underusing Sergio (What a surprise. Kevin Pritchard, I love what you've done with the team, but dammit!! You have to remove McMuffin'. Look at the potential of this team and realize if anyone can f*** this up, it it Nate).

Other than Rudy Fernandez, Sergio Rodriguez is the most flashy, razzle-dazzle player on the team. Oh, and the fact that when Sergio and Rudy play together, we get some wicked alley-opp reverse layups and dunks. Sure, Sergio is turnover prone, but usually when he is in on offense, he is the major reason why we get open shots, more points in the paint, and of course the flare spectacular passes of the Spain sensation.

Other than Brandon Roy's 1.9 seconds of the Houston OT, Roy has been less than the All-Star form he was last year. Could it be because he is playing out of position more at the Three (aka small forward) or PG?

Steve Blake at PG?? Sure he'd make a great backup. I don't even know why Steve resigned with Portland in the first place. He was the backup/3rd PG under McMuffin' originally but now you want to start and play Blake 30+ minutes?! We are going nowhere with Blake (or Nate for that matter).

Ideally, I'd love for Sergio to start and Jerryd Bayless to backup. Kevin Pritchard has three months to make the anticipating blockbuster deal that Blazer Nation pondering about. Make the right one KP!! Right now, I wish the league was allowed to trade coaches... Again, I've said it before, McMuffin' for D'Antoni!! You see how much better the New York Knicks are this season?!

Coach Nate McMuffin': Mark my words and kiss my @$$! If Sergio Rodriguez is traded because of your bullheaded, two-cent incompetent brain of underusing him every game, I guarantee you'll regret it and he will be the next Jose Calderon!!

Batum with the Kaboom!!

I didn't have the stomach to comment about the Laker game, but this game vs. the Spurs was definitely a nice treat on Halloween. And again, it supported my theory to start anyone but Zach Randolph Jr. (aka Travis Outlaw) in the starting lineup.My quote/status on facebook before the Laker game:

Joey is WTF Coach McMuffin'?! your gonna start Zach Randolph Jr aka Outlaw over a team player in Batum?! Sportsbook it now ppl, Lakers will cover! 4:14pm

- 1 Comment

Any what was Nate thinking not evening play Nicolas Batum in the Laker game until the final 3 minutes of that game?!

I have to be thinking that Nate then listens to the local sports radio show (95.5 The Game) in which many people call or answer in poll question that they'd like to have Batum or Rudy as the starter instead of Outlaw... BUT what does McMuffin do again last night... that's right, he starts Outlaw. But with this probably in his mind, he gives Batum a chance and hotdamn, this kid Batum is GOOD!! Long length, stifling defense, team player that shares the ball, strong attacks to the hoops and range from long distance!! This Frenchman did it all last night!!

And Coach McMuffin will look like a genius for playing him last night BUT here is something that will get overlooked because the Blazers won... It looked like the only thing scary about the Spurs was Greg Popovich's creepy, white beard when the Blazers had built a 12 point lead or so in the 4th quarter but when it got cut to 8 or so, Nate subs Batum and puts back in ball hog Travis Outlaw... WTF McMuffin?! And from there on, the Spurs go on a hellacious run with Tony Parker having his way with Steve Blake (WTF was Blake doing in there? Every play, Parker penetrated him for a layup or a dishout to an open three point swingman. Remember Batum's defense on him before the end of the 1st half Nate... I guess not)... So the lead now becomes a range of "down 1 to up one" and when Nate finally realizes Batum (or probably Dean Denompolis, the assistant coach), he puts back Batum in the final 35 seconds or so of the game...

It ended well last night, but people please... See through this Nate McMuffin garbage!! And remember how he declined his extension which you thought was a terrible enigma... It's not. REMEMBER, this guy bolted from Seattle FOR THE MONEY to come to Portland and REMEMBER, this guy really only had ONE winning season of coaching which was the last year of his Seattle tenure and has done anything since (last year was the players).

The Celtics Cut Darius Miles!!

The title says it all as the C's kicked Miles to the curb and our cap space is spared... for now... Thanks again to Danny Ainge for taking out our garbage (cough-cough Sebastian Telfair and Theo Ratliff)... I guess he realized he didn't want the jinx and plague that is known as Darius Miles like the Blazers, Cavaliers, and Clippers once did (he still has failed to make a single playoff with any team)... So I guess that's why we didn't make the playoffs the past 3 seasons and now were "D-Miles" away from Darius Miles!!

Preseason Opener: RudyMania!!! Oh Yeah!!

The basketball world was anticipating the long awaited debut of Greg Oden, but I was even more antsy for one RUUUUUUUUUDDDYYY Fernandez!! (Rudy was drafted 2 years ago, but choose to stay in Spain one more year and you could say, it was very beneficial), especially after Rudy's phenomenal performance against the U.S. during the Gold Medal match.


Although Rudy only had a mere 6 points and 5 assists, he was the spark-plug and the catalyst for the team last night vs. the Kings. It seemed like everything he did should have made SportsCenter's Top 10 Highlights itself!! Don't believe me... Check the highlights here.

Also, I am glad Sergio got some good PT. His shots were going down and was able to manage a great assist to turnover ration (7-2). He was flashy with the ally-opps to Rudy (see highlight link above) and drained the majority of his shots, esp. the long ball.

All I have to say from this is I hope Nate uses a Sergio-Rudy combo when the regular season comes around...

RudyMania!!

A nice article about the arrival of Spanish basketball great Rudy Fernandez to Portland and what it could mean to the team.

I agree that he is (younger) "the second-coming" of Manu Ginobili (said this a few times before) and that although Kevin Pritchard and Blazer Nation are strong believers in him, Nate isn't 100% behind Rudy... Just interviewed by radio station 95.5 The Game, when asked about his role by John Conzano, he said that he'd let decide on that. If Nate learned anything at the Olympics is that Rudy is ready (and Martell Webster is not)! How many times will Webster be an Olympian or go against the likes of Kobe and LeBron and have monster games like Rudy did...

Case Ace to Case King: Finally a Good "Turn" of an Event

Well, typical soft play at the Full Tilt SnG games and this one was no exception almost putting me on "full tilt". We get it all in PF and I'm up against A-3, A-Q, and A-K, and I have K-K. Insane how this hand ended up and only thing more dramatic would have been if it came on the river...

Rivered by the Whore

This guy "Diktator1" was a strange player. I made a note of him from earlier in the tourny that with blinds 80-160, he was 2nd to act and raised all-in for about a little over 1200 with A-A and got called by somebody with nines. And you know what, when he paused and did this over raise w/the relative small blinds on the 1st hand of heads-up play, I actually put him on a big hand, AQ, QQ, JJ, TT, and low and behold, he had the Q-Q. My King had to hit 1st to add more insult to injury and thus, a sick beat...

This Week in Rage aka Gold Medal Madness: Olympics Addition

Don't get me wrong from the title. I love the Summer Olympics and the 29th Olympia from Beijing didn't disappoint. A plethora of standouts from Michael Phelps' 8 gold medals, to the insane speed of Usain "Lightning" Bolt, to men's volleyball success (3gold and 1 silver), to the "redemption" of the US Men's b-ball team (Oh, BTW, future Blazer Rudy Fernandez definitely proved that he is no fluke and should be the future starting SF or SG for the Blazers), to Nastia Luiken's all around gold in gymnastics and Shawn Johnson's gold on the beam, and of course, Bela Karolyi going on a rant about the Chinese gymnist being underage and being overscored to the US, I could go on and on...

However, there are still some things that I am perplexed by at the Olmpics and thought I'd give my Adam Carolla attempt to (try to) complain about some of the things that you probably wouldn't ever think about complaining.



* Men receiving flowers to go along with their medal (from another man)

If competing in diving or gymnastics is considered "feminine" (Although I don't think that), then what do you call the gentlemen that present flowers to the men that win a medal? I mean seriously, all you really need is the medal. Right after the medal presentations and photos from the swimming events that I saw Michael Phelps dominate, he would either throw his flowers into the stands or give them to his mom or one of his sisters. Also, post medal ceremonies... I don't ever recall seeing anybody keeping the Goddam flowers to showcase! You know how some athletes like to bite on their medals... Well, instead of giving out the flowers, how about them something else to bite on like food, especially after a marathon or decatholon event!!



* Removal of Perfect 10 score in Gymnastics along with no gold medal ties (and questionable judging favoring China's underaged athletes)



The removal of the Perfect 10 score was chaotic and perplexing enough adding more conflict to the Gymnastics portion of the Olympics to go along with the unfair scoring toward the US and favoritism toward China. All around women's gymnist Gold medalist Nastia Liuken probably was screwed out of 2 other gold medals (Yes, her beam performance was better than Shawn Johnson), most noticable, the uneven bar (her best event). Not only was she unfairly underscored, but fellow 12-year-old Chinawoman named "He" of all things, was overscored after a so-so landing in which it was equivalent to Luiken's socre but becasue of this bull shit tie breaker, Luiken would receive the silver lining and "He" the tainted gold.



What wrong is there in not awarding two gold medals here or going into a Goddam sudden death?! In a sport where there are no ties like basketball, tennis, or soccer, there are overtime periods until there is a winner. But in swimming or running, there are medal ties for the unoccassionl ties. What the F is up with this idea of no tie or no tie breaker?! The committee that came up with this preposterous theory can eat my shorts and kiss my ass!!

On a sidenote, a great thing coming out of this was more "Belavision" with Bela Karoyli and his classic rants on the "underaged" Chinese gymnist and the "generous" scoring for the Chinese and unfavorable scores toward the US.



Sidenote: his cheerleading from watching Nastia Liuken was classic and so was Bob Costas' face of fear of a crazy gymnist coach. More Bela Karolyi, less Tim Dagget...

* Athletes eating at McDonalds everyday or eating like Sumos and having 8-pack-stomachs

I know Michael Phelps and other swimmers along with the US Men's b-ball team didn't want to touch the Chinese delacacies for the two weeks they were there... Well, first off, when I go out of state/vacation, the last thing I want to do is eat at a local fast food place let alone Mickey-Ds. I am also not a big fan of eating the same thing over for numerous days, although you can't go wrong with the Egg-McMuffin for breakfast! But listen, how is the Olympian experience a real experience eating at McDonalds everyday? That could be a person's experience here in the states that will have his or her arteries clogged by age 40. Grab a squid, chicken feat, scorpion, something that you'll remember goddammit - thank you

Feel free to leave your comments and vote for the gold medal rant of the three!!

Well, finally got back to cashing but of course it comes when I decrease my buy-in. I had a feeling if I stay around the $20 level or increased my buy-in, I'm sure I would have been unsuccessful in cashing, but the saying is (although I forgot who said it) that when you are struggling, you're suppose to decrease your buy-in (or stakes in cash games) to try to rebound... But for some reason, I think the higher the stakes I play, the more unluckier I am too unfortunately...

A Little Poker Analysis: Sometimes your Read is Right...

My analysis from the flop of Q-Q-2... My intention of this flop was to check out of position to see what my opponent would do... Most likely, if he bet, I would put him on air as people tend not to bet trips esp. when the bet is pot-sized... I figured he was trying to steal the pot right out and maybe he had something like a small pair (ended up being half true) or an Ace high that whiffed... So with that in mind, I decided to shove and he Phil Hellmuth-INSTA-calls with a pair of 7s!? I mean, it was a great call, but an INSTA-call?!

Ace Carolla Survives Week 1 of DWTS

I have never laughed so hard watching DWTS, but this obviously was in a good way... My fav. mourning radio talkshow host and comedian Adam Carolla put aside is mouth (temporarily) and put on a pair of dancing shoes, something I thought he'd never do. In his first dance, Ace was screwed and got 5s from all of the judges... Even more controversial (or at least, that's what everybody did), while judge Carrie Ann was revealing her scores, Ace let the "bitch" and/or "witch" remark out!! The next morning on his show, Adam jokingly remarks that he was talking to his publicist "Mitch" while Teresa states isn't your publicist name Lewis... lol... Adam's the best!!

Here's a video of Adam's 1st dance edited w/Adam signing Gary Puckett's "Young Girl" below... I also loved the reference that Adam made when talking to Jimmy Kimmel in explaining reaching for the sky/stars... Apparently, the lovely Juliann told Adam to look up and away like you're poo/fart doesn't stink...



And for kicks, the 2nd dance (Samba) below editing w/Ranchero music (both videos found here too)... Gotta love the slick finger point, almost getting kicked in the face, the "too hot" point to the ass, and the reverse ninja roll!!

Ace-Man Lands Ace Dancer After Dropping Bombshell

Yesterday, my favorite radio personality Adam Carolla stunned the world announcing that he would partake in the 6th Season of the hit series "Dancing with the Stars", which we be on in mid March. This was a major shocker as the Ace-man has always bashed reality TV shows, including the show that he'll be on (In the words of Adam, is that "blow-hardy"?



If that wasn't enough, Adam's dance partner would be secretly revealed later in his radio broadcast. Before she (or he) as Bald Bryan and Teresa joked, Adam got his wife Lynnete on the line and had her confirm that Adam would only (jokingly) run away with the VERY lovely, ravishing, sexy girl-next-door Juliann, who is the reigning two-time champion of the show. Low and behold, Juliann is revealed as Ace's partner!!



Adam will also be a guest on Oprah today of all hosts to promote the show... I still remember one of Adam's great rants on Oprah... where he concludes and calls her a bitch!! I never liked the Oprah show but this one should be very interesting to watch...

Blazers vs. Hawks 1/21/08



Just got done watching the replay of the Blazers and Hawks game (damn the 11am start time) and wowzers!! What a game!! I don't know where to start but I must say my man Sergio Rodriguez is magnifico!! From driving layups to burying threes to pump fakes to razzle-dazzle no look passes, Sergio was firing on all cylinders... He only played 16 mins (I guess Nate is still a non-believer of Sergio) but made the most of his time going 6-7 from the field (with the only shot he missed was a shot being rejected by Josh Smith), 2-2 from the line, 2-2 from downtown, dished out 4 assists and had 2 rebounds... Without his play tonight, there was no way the Blazers would have come back from an early 11 point deficit.

How big has Travis Outlaw been on this road trip?! With the exception of that missed dunk "T-Law" aka "Trout" aka "TO" has been automatic with his outside sharpshooting! The game winner was pretty sick in which he was guarded by Superman-superhuman defender Josh Smith and with a hand in his face, Outlaw sunk the long deuce game-winning shot in OT.

This game could have easily been lost thanks to poor coaching of Nate McMillan, the so-called Coach of the Month in December... How can somebody play someone scorching hot as Sergio for only 16 minutes and not let him play in the OT at all?! Instead, Nate puts in a struggling Steve Blake in the 4th quarter, who air-balled a three pointer immediately after entering the game... Blake was completely removed from the OT for shooting guard that played the point Jarrett Jack, who by no means, was on efficient tonight as Sergio...

If the Blazers were to have lost this game, I'm sure the forums would be all over Nate for this... Even though the Blazers won, he still should be drilled for his incompetence of leaving Sergio out... I mean, did you see the Blazers blow a 6 point lead in the 4th with him out and not to mention, that we almost lost this game in OT because of Nate's mind-boggling decision... Need more proof... Here were the lines of guards of the night:

* PG Steve Blake: 7 points in 32 minutes going 3-8 FGs with 2 rebounds and 7 dimes. Overall +/- in the game was +5
* SG/PG B-Roy: 18 points in almost 41 minutes on 8-22 FGs with 2 rebounds and 3 dimes. Overall +/- in the game was -10
* SG/PG Jarrett Jack: 4 points in almost 17 mins on 2-2 FGs with rebound and 1 assist. Overall +/- was -5
* PG Sergio Rodriguez: 16 points in 16 minutes on 6-7 shooting; with 2 rebounds and 4 dimes. Overall +/- was +14

Another footnote that shouldn't be ignored is Nate leaving in a struggling LaMarcus Aldridge instead of a hot Channing Frye... Aldridge is one of my favorite Blazers, but when you're shooting abysmaly and getting outhussled on the glass, you need to benched in the crunch time. The main reason why Frye got to play the OT was because the same Atlanta crew that messed up Shaq's personal foul count (got fined $50,000 for that) and couldn't figure out how many foul's Aldridge had.

Aldridge/Comparsion:
* Aldridge: 8 points in 28 minutes on 3-12 FGs with 5 rebounds and 0 dimes/steals/blocks. Overall +/- in the game was -12
* Frye: 9 points in 25 mins on 3-8 FGs, with 7 rebounds, and 1 dime, steal, and block a piece. Overall +/- in the game was +10

And what about Joel Przybilla's almost no show in OT... He was subbed into the OT to rebound a possible FT miss but then was never put back into the OT... It felt like Atlanta had 20 offensive rebounds in the OT which second chance opportunities kept them in the game... Why would Nate put in his best defender and rebounder to limit their 2nd chances?! Mind-boggling isn't it yet somehow, this team young, inexperienced team is good enough to overshadow McMillan's questionable decisions...

Joel was effective in the limited 18 minutes he got... Ended with 7 pts on 2-2 FGs, 3-3 FTs with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block (felt like more since he alters so many shots).

On to New Orleans...

Blazers vs. Raptors 1/13/08

Unfortunately. I missed the first 3 quarters of this game but turned in just in time when the action was getting wicked. Blazers had a 6 point cushion going into the 4th and basically, Nate McMillan, coach of the month or not, blew this game for my Blazers. Chirs Bosh was absolutely having his way with LaMarcus Aldridge and was the main catalyst behind Toronto's comeback. They turned a six point deficit into a 7 point lead with about 4 minutes to go. But, with an all-star game from Brandon Roy and great shooting from "Mr. 4th Quarter" Travis Outlaw (Mike Rice's nickname for "T-Law" aka "Trout"), the Blazers would mount a comeback of their own. I wasn't too happy with Nate's usage of timeouts... He burned 2 timeouts around the 1:25 mark in the 4th quarter after the team had advanced the ball past half-court of all things too and ran out of timeouts by the 45 second mark or so, thus the Blazers would not have extra timeouts to advance the ball. Way to go dumbass, but because of Travis Outlaw's sick 4 point play to force OT, he bailed Nate out.

You figure that after getting dominated by Chris Bosh that Nate McMillan would redeem himself in overtime by putting his best rebounder and defender into the game to guard Bosh... Nope... Blazers played well and maintained a 2 point lead throughout most of the 1st OT, but in the end, Bosh and Calderon were too much... Again, it took another bailout three, this time by Roy, to salvage Nate and the Blazers...

2nd OT starts off w/Bosh winning the jumpball again and scoring a quick 4 points that would catapult the Raptors to victory... Again, after the timeout, no Pryzbilla...

I am still mind-boggled by the Blazers winning streak w/McMillan as the coach... the guy seems to be clueless in matchups and substituting players in the right situation, yet the team keeps winning and thus, somehow, gave him Coach of the Month honors... Maybe this current road trip will test Nate's coaching ability, but its scary to think how great this Blazer team can be with Greg Oden and Rudy Fernandez coming next year, and/or getting a coach that knows what he's doing...
