The Dallas Gag-ricks

May 11, 2009

First off, it’s not all the refs fault.

Laying it out there now.

Go ahead and close the window, i don’t care.

I already got your hit which is so very important to me.

But if you care to be enlightened, i can tell you why the gags deserve this name.

3 points:

1. Missing free throws in the last minutes of the game.

2. Going away from the offense that worked throughout the third and early fourth.

3. Not playing through the whistle.

4. Dirk can’t jump straight up/poor 3-pointer selection and overall shot selection.

Okk there are 4, but only because the 4th came to mind while i typed the other three.

so to address number one, free throws.

Free throws are the most basic shot in basketball besides a layup.

That is the only shot besides a layup you shoot your whole life.

3 pointers are out of the question when you’re 6.

And they are FREE throws.

No defenders, at your own home court, and the 3 highest percentage shooters on our team miss 3 big ones in the last half of the quarter.

ohhhhhh wahhh only 3 free throws missed.

Wouldn’t you enjoy those extra 3 points now after the game?

How about just one?

Dirk, who shoots about 91%, terry, who shoots near 80%, and j-ho, who shoots 83% all missed free throws when it counted.

Sure, we went 40-49 and shot 81% for the game, but  3 of those misses were in crunch time.

Gotta get those gimmies when you’re given them.

Cool line huh?^^

2. In the third and 4th quarters, we were pouring in points.

Almost every possession resulted in a basket, no matter how many offensive rebounds we got.

we put in 35 points in the third, which was more than the nuggs had in any quarter.

Going into the last 6 minutes of the fourth, we were rollin’.

But then the offense switched from layups, dunks, and free throws to jumpers.

The old maverick curse.

A jumpshooting team is always a jumpshooting team when it’s true identity is revealed.

Pretty philosophical, i must say.

3. I know antoine thought he fouled him, and it looked like he did.

But never stop until the whistle is blown.

You also learn that as a kid.

Maybe you should follow Jon Barry’s advice and let the ref know you’re gonna foul him, and not complain to the ref while your offensive assignment fires up a wide open three.

Just a suggestion.

and 4. Dirk can’t jump straight/poor shot selection.

The second half of this goes with the changing of the offense point.

But a problem i have with Dirk is his unclutchness along with his inability to jump straight upwards on a jumper instead of straight backwards.

Doing this would make the shot much easier, conisdering he’s higher and closer, and require less effort.

He also makes it easier to block if he goes straight back.

If he goes straight up, he might get fouled and even make the shot.

Then he’ll get two points and it doesn’t matter if he chokes at the free throw line.

So tonight the gags go out to remain a little shard of dignity and hopefully not get swept.

So it’s not all the refs fault…

End of Year Awards/ Playoffs

April 16, 2009

I’m gonna do a mondo combo blog on the important end of year awards and playoff predictions.

I’ll start with the important one.

Most Improved Player.

the MIP

Although kevin durant was good last year, he does it all this year.

steal, blocks, scores, assists, and scores on the oklahoma city thunder warnings.

only other competitior is devin harris

went from a decent player to a franchise guard.

Devin Franchise.

it works

Coach of the Year:

Mike Brown?

no.

watching lebrawn do what he do must be sooooo rough.

i’m sorry, do you want me to fan you or anything else while you wait?

how about a coach that did something

Rick Adelman.

took a potential trash team that traded their starting pg and lost tracy mcgrady and his lazy eye.

and they still made the 5 seed and have a great chance of upsetting portland.

but they won’t

Defensive player of the Year:

Dwight howard?

nah.

Chris “the Birdman” Andersen?

yes.

2.5 blocks a game, and isn’t inconsistent like howard, who either gets 7 or 0

birdman gets 2.5 every night

and how does he get half a block?

don’t worry about it.

6th man

jason terry

it was basically a race to try and talk to terry at the award ceremony as the 2nd man.

2nd? how about TO

travis outlaw.

roty:

Derrick Rose is an attractive pick, but not attractive looking.

Brook Lopez is an ugly ogre.

OJ Mayo and Russell Westbrook are beasts, but not quite leaders.

and Eric Gordon only scores.

Derrick by a shaved hair over oj.

If you have a foam finger in this picture, you're ugly. Sorry
