(Still the most contributory thing we've seen from him in weeks)

Keith Smart has been fired by the Golden State Warriors. I guess that hiring wasn't so smart, now was it?

20110426-keith-bogansOh, Keith Bogans, what would we ever do without you?


Nationally Televised Games:
76ers at Heat, TNT, 7pm (Heat lead series 3-1): Per the STATS LLC game preview: "The 76ers say they're loose, playing with nothing to lose." Yeah, nothing to lose except, you know, the series!

Grizzlies at Spurs, NBA TV, 8:30pm (Grizzlies lead series 3-1): How nice of the TV scheduling gurus to put this one on NBA TV so I don't have to personally witness the end of the Spurs era. A blessing in disguise.

Nuggets at Thunder, TNT, 9:30pm (Thunder lead series 3-1): You must watch this commercial starring Danilo Gallinari:

I HATE ESPN writers:

kevinarnovitz: Anthony's clutch FTMs. Potentially the feel-good moment of the season for Miami.

OK. They were playing the Sixers at home! How the hell could *that* be the feel-good moment?

I guess the Heat still can't win games decided by 5 points or less

Wow. D Wade with the fucking douche move dunk after Philly conceded and were leaving the court. If there is such a thing as Karma it will come back and bite these fucking asshole cHeaters.

My god, the empty void that is the mouth of Chris Bosh horrifies me.

That was more than a douche move by Wade, it was a douche move with gambling implications.
The line on the over/under was between 186.5 and 187.5 at most gambling establishments, with 187 being the most common number. Wade's garbage time basket moved the total from 186 to 188.

So uh...conspiracy theories, giddyup.

Barkley just said Zach Randolph is the best player in this series. What has the world come to?

I think this tweet summed up the end of the Spurs/Grizz game, via ESPN: "This is the scene where the Terminator has no skin or legs but is still crawling towards you all red eyes & murder"

Yep, Lionel Hollins, you had a chance to crush the Terminator, and you fucked up. Grizz are starting to look like the '08 Hornets: Spurs won't die, they don't know how to kill them, except that was a 2-seed, and the Spurs had to win two on the road.

What's up with LeBron and his "breakfast" and "lunch" analogies? Those kind of comments really show how dumb one person can be. People hated MJ, people hate Kobe, but that's coz they're great players. You just hate LeBron coz there's really nothing to like about him. Everything he does is so stupid.

So Pacers for breakfast, Celtics for lunch, Bulls for dinner? What are the Lakers gonna be - midnight snack?

I'm a Laker fan but I'm rooting for the Celtics to sweep the cHeat.

Thunder-Nuggets: OKC has the offensive rebounding edge 14-1, total shots edge 62-57, free throw edge 33-10, an 8-2 advantage in blocked shots, and 2 fewer turnovers than the Nuggets... and trails by 4 after 3 quarters, due to impossibly terrible shooting.

One of the commentators saying "Z-Bo with a z-bound" has caused my Twitter feed to go crazy with people making jokes left and right. This somehow feels right.

This was my reaction after following the Spurs-Grizzlies game on ESPN's gamecast.


As a Suns fan, I know your pain Grizzlies fans.

Rich Muhlach, he was quoting a Jay-Z First of all, and it was not the entire quote.

"We’re just finishing our breakfast, honestly. Just finishing the 76ers off, we’re not looking ahead into the next round. Just finish these guys off. This is a very good team we’re playing against, it’s going to take a collective group, all of us, to close this series off."

LeBron can't scratch his nuts without America going into a frenzy
