Watch Goran Dragic Tragic amble* in for an uncontested flush** against Clipper the Friendly Ghost. From the three-point line. (Thanks DKH.) Note the mocking laughter by new Suns coach Alvin Gentry. I bet that made Zach Randolph want to punch somebody. Again I mean.


*Would you describe Goran's drive as an amble, gad about, gallivant, jaunt, promenade, saunter, stroll or traipse? Discuss.

**From now on, each and every shot that's jammed through the hoop against the Clippers shall be referred to as a "flush," because they remind me of poo.

most definitely a saunter. since im pretty sure goran dragic has never done that to anyone, his swag must be at an all time high. therefore, its a saunter.

he could've slowed it down to a strut and still jammed it home.

You think the Suns could be good again Bawful? You think this could actually make a difference? I don't want to stat curse, so I won't say anything. Also: It was against the Clips, and as much as I love them, they suck.

I would say he "meandered" to the hoop since he didn't seem to know where the hell he was going and then all of a sudden the seas parted and a lane to the hoop opened up that you could drive a tank through.

I feel bad for the poor bastard that is going to be in his poster.

Wait: Was the Team Who Is Who We Thought They Were just playing efense, or did the Suns run Hickory High's "Picket Fence"? WTF was that? I'm speechless. Tragic could've rolled out a red carpet, and then made his way to the tin for the flush. (And shhh! But I'm giggling at the prospect that maybe, just maybe, we could be seeing the SSoL phoenix rising in Phoenix. I may or may not have gotten a semi watching that game, and no, I wasn't trying to kiss Zach.) Maybe the Pistons should try firing Michael Curry. Then again, I don't want to see final scores in the low-70s ever again.

Wait ... Does everyone realize that the Suns are playing the Clips again tonight? Has any team scored 300 points in two consecutive games?

Don't beat down on the clips. They try really hard. They wanted to improve so Mike-D showed them a clip of the all star game saying "these are the best players in the game, learn from them!"

That play was the 'stand around and let lebron dunk' tactic

Shaq had a perfect game. Field and FT line. Has this ever happened?

I've always thought of it as "girly," but as a female I guess that's a little insulting. I'd also describe it as a "trot."

In the Clippers' defense (no pun intended), I think the main reason they didn't catch Dragic in time was the fact that NO ONE expected him to drive from the three point line like that. Don't get me wrong, they could have stayed home and it wouldn't have made much difference. (Point is, as a Suns fan, I was impressed by Dragic's cut-and-flush coming totally out of nowhere... I mean a rookie PG, really?!)

As I've said previously, I bet a co-worker of mine in the preseason that the Clippers would not make the playoffs. So if the Clippers lose to Phoenix again tonight then the Clips' not-so-magic number will be 10, meaning that any combination of Suns' wins or Clipper losses that add up to 10 will ensure the Clips of missing the playoffs yet again.

I'm hoping to collect on my wager before March 1st :)

Ry: WELL, the Knicks scored something like 230 in consecutive losses to the Warriors and Clippers or something insane like that last week.

BTW, you're not the only one who noticed:

Today is Wednesday, and we all know what that means... Thats right, LOST is on tonight. I heard a rumor that this is he episode in which the smoke monster eats Robert Sarver, thus saving me thousands of dollars in hitman money. I'll just have to wait and see...

Goran Dragic watch! The Clippers will be featured prominently in his highlight reel, as he nearly duplicated last night's stat line with 12 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists (with, however, one turnover and 5 fouls).

Unfortunately, the game was not televised in my area, so I can't know how elegantly he did it.

Way to stat curse Dwight- he missed his double-double which would have broken Shaq's record streak of 18 in Orlando.

Oh yeah, and Caleb, looks like your wish has come true! Chandler is staying in NO after all.

Blogger Clifton said...
Look, that lane was so wide-open, *I* could have slashed and dunked it. And I'm 6'1" and have about a 2" vertical, which, of course, means that "slash" means jog to the sideline, fetch a stepladder, unfold it and set it up, then climb it and dunk the ball.

And, by the by, from the tidbits section of the AP game recap:

Camby, who had his ear drained Wednesday, is awaiting work on whether he’ll get medical clearance to fly to Portland for the Sunday’s game. “We’re inventing new ways to get hurt,” Dunleavy said. “I mean, in the annals of the league, what’s the percentages of one of your players flying on an airplane and his ear drum caves in? I mean, it’s like, what other kind of injury can happen?”

Ohhhhh. Stat curse, Señor Dunleavy. I'm calling it. How wacky can we go? Frostbite from a freak liquid-nitrogen accident? Critically infected papercut on the tongue from licking an envelope longways instead of up-and-down?

Or will they just start listing "apathy" as a documented reason for missing games?

hey bawful, meet john whine

if anything was worthy of a worst of the anything this past week, it was marion's complaint about the heat not playing a fast paced suns like brand of basketball. you know, after demanding a trade FROM the phoenix suns.

i mean really ... how hypocritically retarded can you get ?!

This may have been mentioned in other comments but why the hell does Shane Battier suddenly look like he stared in "Soul Man"?!?

Traipse if you're a Clippers fan. Jaunt if you're a Suns fan.

Amazingly, Dragic dunked again last night. The path to the basket wasn't nearly as clear, but he did it nonetheless.

I'll have to see if I can find video but I laughed like crazy when I saw it...

Blogger chris said...
So Phoenix ended up dropping a total of 282 points in two nights. Wow. It's almost as if they were playing the Knicks' efense or something!

dunkside: Maybe Marion thought he invented 7SOL and NOT Mike 'antoni? Then again, one of them is coaching the Knicks to feel-good losses, the other one is yearly trade bait due to his self-inflicted whinejobs.

Blogger flohtingPoint said...
You be the judge. More awkward situation:
-Devean George screwing the Jason Kidd trade.

-Tyson Chandler's trade getting balked by OKC.

@chris

i think mike d doesn't get enough credit. he might be coaching the knicks to feel good losses, but he might have the worst roster in the league (before the trades today). give that roster to dunleavy and he will manage to have more losses than games played.

mike d'antoni is like the godfather of fat contracts. he made amare, he made quentin richardson, he made joe johnson and so on. he made nash a 2 time mvp. as soon as he left (or they left his team) they came back to earth.

now marion piled up the stats even before nash and d'antoni, but he never led a team anywhere and now the more he speaks, the more he looks like a complete moron and douchebag. he seems to be suffering from the scottie pippen disease, where an otherwise great player suffers from an accelerated shrinkage of his brain to the point that every time he speaks you start feeling embarrassed for the way his stupidity might affect his legacy.
