    AAAAND Charlotte is handling Denver, though it's still early.

    Yea, that was a wild game. Atlanta was in full control until Glenn Robinson Jr. drains a 3-pointer with less than a second to go to give the Pacers a 1-point win.

    Watching the first half of today's game, Steph Curry couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Just checked the box score and Curry ended up with 31 points. Guy is unreal. He passed Bup Bup to move into the all-time top 10 in career 3-pointers made.

    I tell you, the Warriors sometimes look like far the lesser team - except for guys like Curry, and Thompson, just being able to make shots. Both had been slumping a bit. Not this game. Anyway, when Thompson especially has it on automatic, no plays needed, he just shoots from anywhere, against anyone, and the shot goes swish.

    Clippers - Boston

    Just watched this game from last night (Monday night). In the first half, the announcers were wondering about Crawford, saying how streaky he was, and for the first half of this one, the Clips had zero scoring from their bench. But then Crawford wakes up in the 2nd half, and looks as unstoppable, and infallable, as Curry or Thompson look at times. Win for the Clips.

    All this talk about who is playing who - look, the Pistons just have to win games; ditch the rearview mirror, and put as many teams behind us as we can.

    Grats to Dirk on 30k! Props to a legend, one of my favorite players ever!



    Having been ripped from my beloved Michigan home and brought to Dallas at the age of 11, I adopted a general anti-Texas philosophy.

    I wasn't here long and the Lions had a 'so sweet' upset over the Cowboys, who had already been discussing the round after their coming bout with the Lions. However, the Cowboys did pretty infuriatingly good after that. I hated hearing about Emmit Smith all the time. Obliviously, I considered Sanders GOAT.

    In high school, with the Red Wings in the midst of a 40 year Cup drought I had to watch fans who were still learning what "icing" was celebrate a Stanley Cup victory. The fact they were led by a Michigander was both cool and kind of annoying.

    At least, I could always count on the Mavs to be god-awful, terrible.

    So, basically, I am saying I was pretty prejudice. I really didn't like Dirk. Raised on the Bad Boys and a tough NBA I thought Dirk was too soft, too timid, too whiny. I was a dumb teenager and was naturally drawn to what were some pretty popular opinions at the time.

    Maybe, he was a little soft; I don't even know anymore. It's not like I watch old Mavericks' games. Some y'all older folk were probably wise to Dirk long before me, but once I was mature enough I had to like him. He eventually developed a reputation not just for his legendary hard work, but as someone with a fastidious lifestyle dedicated to making him as optimal a ballplayer as possible. That sort of passion and drive is impossible to not admire and respect.

    However, his unguardable, turnaround, one-footed, fadeaways are impossible not to love.

    Makes me wish I went to more than a few Mavericks games.

    This article is interesting because it talks about when and how Dirk's game evolved at different stages. Also, if you have League Pass, I recommend watching Dirks first 23 points vs the Lakers if you want some feel-goods. Or you can just watch the moment, I suppose--from a highlight. But, it is cool to watch it build to the moment, especially since Dirk was shooting lights out with 18 points in like 9 minutes of the first quarter.

    For me, there were basically two 30,000 point scorers during my life, the others I may have seen on tv were at the tail end of their careers. Dirk is just waaaay more like-able than Kobe. I'm not trying to bash Kobe, just saying Dirk is like supreme NBA legend of my lifetime. Though, so is Duncan. Duncan was even better than Dirk. But, 30,00 points is a helluva lot a points.

    *edit* and Lebron.:victory:

    I like Dirk. His Finals performance when they won it all was amazing. He has gone through some very tough times at Dallas, but he persisted. He's the complete opposite of "entitled" stars who jump ship and collude to be able to win titles. He's worked his butt off and willed his team to victory.

    Most of my day is spent trying to annoy people on the internet now.

    Why wasn't I doing this 10 years ago? :stirthepot:

    Switched over to the Twolves @ Heat and heard the ecstatic Heat announcers cheer the fact that the Pistons lost and they were now sole owners of a playoff spot.

    Heat closed the game on 17-5 run to win 123-105. They have won 23 of 28 and are hungry with a bunch scrub players that nobody else wanted. (according to Whiteside in his post game interview).

    With the Bucks playing the LA Tankers, er Lakers, expect them to win tonight too. Both the Bucs and the Heat are playing as if they want the 5th and 6th spots....not 7th and 8th....

    If the season ended today, we would be in the worst possible position...the #14 pick in the lottery.
