Where Disappointment Happens


Damn. I really wanted the Cavaliers to be the one's that sent Paul Pierce's pussy home. But instead, I have to settle on reveling in the worst week in recent Boston sports history. Think about it. Big Poopi gets benched after stranding 12 runners in a game and the Red Sox publicly acknowledging that this guy sucks without steroids. The Bruins lost a home game seven to a team from North fucking Carolina and gave up the game winning goal to a guy who should have been suspended. And then the Celtics get sent packing by a soft team that only shoots three's. Suck on that, Kevin Garnett, you queermo.

So that leaves us with the final four in the NBA. I'll be honest, and I am one of the bigger fans of the NBA out there, these two series aren't very interesting to me, let alone the common fan. Sure, we still have the stars around with Kobe, Melo, Superman, and The King, but...ugh. It would have been so much more intriguing with a Spurs/Lakers and Celtics/Cavs matchups. Predictions for the Finals (these will shock no one):

Lakers over Nuggets in 7 - It will be kind of compelling but I see 5 of these games being blowouts. Phil Jackson has done an awful job all postseason getting his players to play hard every game. George Karl is a train wreck waiting to happen. The Lakers will lose one of the first two at home but they won't lose the series. The rest that Denver is getting now will hurt them.

Cavaliers over Magic in 5 - Not the best matchup for the Cavs since they don't defend talented big men all that well but I'm not too concerned. They will focus on slowing down Turkugly, Lewis, and Pietrus instead. Let Howard get whatever he wants. Hedo guarding LeBron? Please. Delonte worked his ass off bodying up Joe Johnson last series and now he gets two weeks off with his matchup against JJ Redick and his perfectly coifed hair. Stan Van Gundy is not very good and the Magic tend to come up small when the pressure is on. Don't give me a "well, they did win in Boston for a game seven". Yeah, they should have closed that out in 5. The Cavs are more focused and hungry. It's not Orlando's time yet and they aren't strong enough mentally to win at The Q.

Cavs/Lakers in the Finals. It's going to happen. David Stern won't let it happen any other way. But then again, we knew that 3 months ago. And be prepared, since this is big time important to me, expect posts after every game.

Boston's bad week combined with a current 5 game Yankee winning streak made it a very good week.

I don't see anyone beating your Cavs unless the ghost of Michael Jordan's jumpshot comes back to somehow defeat them.

Hey, UU, a little KSK inside joke here but I drove by Toone P. Wiggins on Friday night. Almost stopped in for some spicy shrimp like Peter King!

Upstate Underdog said...

G$, how did you not stop into Toone P Wiggins and walk on the same ground PK walked on?

great spicy shrimp, lofty spicy shrimp

Denver in the upset!!!

I spoke to Tim Bruns awhile back and he still hasn't heard any confirmation from you about his guest post. What the fuck is up with that? He should get an entire week now.

GMoney said...

Whoops, I've completely forgotten about that, Ace. I'll get with Bunny about that. Hell, it will give me a day off at least.

Toone P. Wiggins = salt of the earth land baron

And I was driving through Sidney, OH around 1 am so I think that they were closed with the exception of King pounding through his 117th plate of spicy shrimp.

Pietrus can contain Lebron . and when lebron beats him off the dribble Howard will be waiting for him . Zone box 1 . Magic in 7 . Remember who gave the cavs their worst loss of the season

GMoney said...

Also remember, who lost twice to the 76ers in the playoffs? Embarrassing. Michael Pietrus containing LeBron? Hilarious. I can't believe that there are still a few people out there that believe Orlando is a championship caliber team. How adorable!

I'm with you G$. Would have much rather played the Celtics and their crybabyin', pussy attitude. I also think the Cavs match up better with them and it could have been another sweep. Now, it will be a little tougher (on the road, not at home) and the Cavs might drop a game.

But this can be a good thing. I was so bored with the first two series. Remember in 2006 when, as a fan, you were pumped for every game? Then there's this year and you are excited for the game but you know the Cavs are going to win and if you miss a few minutes of it, no big deal. Hopefully this series will be exciting and get us ready for the finals. Of course, I'll take a boring 4-game sweep, with an average victory margin of 16 again, too.
