Scott Brooks takes the "Zombie Sonics" thing to the next level
The Trail Blazers and GM of basketball operations Rich Cho have parted ways
. After just one year. Cheer up, Rich! If you were a 30 minute sit-com in today's environment, you'd be a success if you lasted a year! Here's my favorite take
on the situation so far: Larry Miller: Rich hired: "Rich is the perfect fit for our organization" Rich fired:"The fit between Rich and our team simply wasn’t right"
I guess the "fit" they wanted was Cho concocting some magical elixir to reverse the aging process so they could bring back Bill Walton for another title run? For some actual analysis, Tom Ziller chimes in
with the rumor that Cho wanted to suspend Brandon Roy.
Here's some other interesting news in the Western conference: Manu Ginobili played with a broken arm during the playoffs
. It's like he wants to make you feel bad every time I miss an open jumper in a pickup game or
call in sick to work because you have a cold. (Yes, I am aware that Rajon Rondo played with an arm that flopped around like a piece of overcooked spaghetti, but he can still make you feel good about your jumper, so I'm throwing him out of this analogy.)Worst of the Night in Pictures:
"Note to self: no more Warheads when cameras are pointed at me..." I love everything about this picture And who said the Bulls/Heat matchup was unwatchable? Good thing Jason Kidd was wearing his Life Alert necklace!Nationally Televised Games:Mavericks at Thunder, ESPN, 9pm (Mavs lead series 2-1)
: I just read a stat that Kevin Durant is only 2-for-18 from behind the arc in this series. Woah. This isn't making Russell Westbrook's decision-making look great, but it's certainly taking the edge off a little.
