Down 3-1, Stan Van Gundy gets ready to fly north for the summer
FYI, as I noted earlier in Friday's WOTN comments, I attended the Derby Festival Basketball Classic
at Louisville's KFC Yum! Center. (No, I did not eat any KFC. I did, however, eat fresh-cut potato chips topped with the following: beef slathered in barbeque sauce, nacho cheese, chives, tomatoes, bacon bits, and jalapenos. So that was nice.) It was a last-minute "Hey, I have free tickets for tonight's game, you wanna go?" deal, so I didn't get a chance to grab my D-SLR camera, but I did snap some pictures and video with my iPhone. I'll put together a post about it sometime in the next couple days when there's less to talk about. In the meantime, lots of pictures to get to in today's post!Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:
The saddest thing about the Knicks' early exit -- this is the last time we'll see Mike D'Antoni for quite awhile Ball, meet face. Face, meet ball. Umm... "Do you really think I'm scared of a guy named Zaza?" But not '99? You're lucky Prince isn't here. He'd might get pissed and punch you in the shin or kneecap (because Prince is short, you see) Zach Randolph dancing? You know we have to post that Maybe having a talented superstar is important after all If the Knicks want to somehow blame the loss on Spike Lee's wardrobe, I'm cool with that No, Erik Spoelstra, you can't blame your loss on Spike LeeNationally Televised Games:Spurs at Grizzlies, TNT, 8pm (Grizzlies lead series 2-1)
: It took me eight tries to type "Grizzlies lead Spurs." My fingers just wouldn't let me do it no matter how hard I tried.Frail Blazers at Mavericks, NBA TV, 8:30pm (Series tied 2-2)
: It's easy to shake your head at the Mavericks' annual postseason meltdown, but you have to remember who they're playing. If there is another team that's shown it's capable of blowing a first round matchup the past few years, it's Portland. I don't mean to offend fans of either team, but really, these two teams are just infuriating in April.Thunder at Nuggets, TNT, 10:30pm (Thunder lead series 3-0)
: Fun fact: the Nuggets are shooting 68.7% from the charity stripe in this series. In related news, Thunder fans have their brooms in hand and are ready for the potential sweep.
