The media and anaysts always talks about the length of the Lakers....
And the general consesus is that LA would have won the Finals in 2008 if they had Bynum
And folks are saying Boston won Game 4 because Bynum was not in the Game
so, is Bynum the true MVP? with V meaning "valuable".
I know everyone will probably say Kobe Bryant....but this MVP in the Finals probably shouldn't necessarily always go to the leading scorer.
To stay on that theme, the Boston MVP thus far (at this time) is probably Glen Big Baby Davis.
Anyone know anything about this rumor?
If Danny Ferry gets both Shaq and Vince to Cavs then he gets my vote for GM of the year before the season even starts.
It appears that the guy is trying hard to keep his job.....because im my opinion, both he and the coach are on the "hot seats".
Is it fair, NO.
But like Avery Johnson once said, players win games.....and you can have the nicest coach and the nicest players....but if those players are not winning games in the regular season AND in Cavs case to get a title.....then having the wrong players can cost a head coach (and the GM) his job.
I said it before the NBA Finals started and I still believe it to this day, that the NBA has some shady stuff going on in that league.
Now I do NOT feel the NBA Finals was fixed at all.....but I do believe at crunch time the NBA refs officiate the game based on the names on the back of the jerseys and some teams do receive favorable calls that does end up deciding games......and YES, LA and Kobe benefits from that more than any other team in my opinion at a rate of 2 to 1 in favor of LA.
I will continue to follow Donaghy, because I do feel that he is telling the truth.....and post only FYI threads as they become apparent.
I still have a bad taste in my mouth from that 2002 Sacramento vs. La western conference championship series....I Knew it had Shady with a capital "S" written all over it. I told my friends about it then and they dismissed it as me being a "hater".....just like people dismiss the Kobe elbow on Nelson or other stuff that happening today or this year.
The missed calls -- non-calls at end of games is catching my eye now.....and people will still try to chalk that up as hating.
I'm not trying to promote Donaghy's book or anything, I just pasted the link to inform everyone that the NBA's worst PR nightmare has been released from prison.
