Haven't we seen enough examples of age catching up to our sports heroes?
Over in Cleveland we patiently watched as Lebron James coached his Cavalier crew to roll 8 games straight through their opponent's because he gets it. Long series create tired bodies and injuries. Cleveland are likely doing grape knee-highs n' spicy tacos in that sunspot Cancun, Barkley and that TNT 'Yooo whooo crew keep festooning aboot.
But back on track...
Witness the last few NBA games. An old Miami squad, injured ,tiring losing late to a nervous Craptors squad. Then Donovan and OKC discovering a hole in Pop's wall and winning two straight by pushing their old-timer-centric opponents over their current physical limits.. OKC coach, Donovan must of spotted that 'stink' on them Spurs having noticed it way back when, while coaching Florida as some college players would hit a wall as the post season progressed.
Tonight the Thunder pound that cut in Pop's game like a boxer, surgically dismantling this nostalgia collection and moving on to face the resting Warriors. There is no cut man on the San Antonio squad to stop the momentum Oklahoma will push it tonight. Just watch how tired the Spurs look by the 3rd quarter. Ginobili, Parker , Duncan?!..,if you run the tapes they looked spent after those drives of old and their defensive chase. Sorry but, Aldridge has regained that Portland 'stare.' Yeah the deer in the headlights. Oooops-a-daisy no show of consistent points from that poor guy all of a sudden. Some guys just choke when there is a spot light? So unless I'm mistaken, its Durant and Westbrook vs. Aldridge and Leonard
And OKC for me.
Be careful if your looking at the PORTLAND/GOLDEN STATE TOTAL OVER 217.5/218 with love in your eyes..
The late play might be on the under with everyone chasing their missing wallets after the East coast result shows up and especially so with the listed referees trending towards the under in games they officiate in.
Good luck which ever way you decide to go
Charles Barkley just suggested they (ATLANTA) take somebody out "REAL HARD!"
"Ya gotta do it"
BASKETBALLS inside pitch like in baseball
"sending in the goon in hockey" to fix the problem...
"ya gotta touch em up!"
Oh oH oh ho ho Santa Claus is coming to town...
Embarrassment is one of the biggest motivators in sports...
Remember Atlanta Falcons vs. the Panthers in NFL last season in their revenge match? woooooooooooooop
Atlanta Hawks.. An automatic play off embarrassment next game LARGE MARGE
That Charles Barkley is a funny funny guy...
He surely gets quote of the night in every segment he shows up in. "Are You Smuggling Grapes...Kenny?" That one killed me after the post card shot of the boys in Cancun with those suspect tan lines on Kenny's chest. That quip from Charles almost killed me laughing...
There is another guy out there right NOW, who attracts and commands that kind of attention... and he's on the mind of every voting American citizen RIGHT NOW even as they sleeeeeep.
That surging Don of Americana...Yep the 'Trumpster' from out of the bad press dumpster should be checking his calendar right about now for available appointments and make that final call. Yep Do the RIGHT THANG and pencil in that King of Everyting our man Brave Sir Charles Barkley as his freaking running mate and put a REAL Good OLD Fashioned sense of humour back into the USA! Your SLEEEZY TV EXECS would likely get a hard on for the prospects, the news futures they could mine from out of that GIG and hey, wouldn't that just make the world a little bit more interesting for a change... Eh?
Book em Dano!
Shaq's Fabulous Checkered Coat?!?
Is he trying to draw attention?
Hypnotizing that coat is.
I used to wear one of those when as a radical 'green' politician I wanted to mess up the aggressive television networks who tried to take us out of context. This was our way of giving them the shortest window of content because of the EFFECT on the screen He he he
Wonder if somebody told Shaq? or he thought it up himself?
Thinking it was the latter and now wondering what the motive was???
