Nelslus just figured out that, as he previously purchased tickets for the first game of the Bulls playoffs for nelslus and baby nelslus, not knowing at that time the specific day/time and who exactly would be playing- that he and baby nelslus get to see Shaq and Miami take on the Bulls this Saturday at 2 p.m. Chicago time.

Got to see MJ in his prime a few times back in the day- but nelslus has never been to an NBA playoff game- so nelslus is actually shocking himself to see how geeked he is. WOO-HOO.:yahoo:

my 2 faves...the 76ers (East), and the Sacramento Kings (West) are both sitting on the sidelines for the playoffs.

If Chicago is anything like Philly, you'll have a blast, nelslus. It's a real electric, positive and fun environment at NBA games. And you get to see Shaq. And Ben Wallace, who is just a blast to watch in person.

Haven't had a favorite team since Birdball, so I'll just cry GO NBA PLAYOFFS! I love 'em!

Some good first round match-ups ... particularly the Spurs and Nuggets. As strong as SA is, I think Denver could give them all they can handle. Miami and Chicago/Lakers and Phoenix should both be entertaining as well. Nash is so much fun to watch! Let the playoffs begin! WOOT!

Since my Lakers are overmatched in the west, i am rooting for the Mavericks...But if they punk out like they did in last years finals i am thru with them...YOu folks in the west better enjoy your party...Once the Lakers get Kevin Garnett in the off season, the rightful order of the NBA will be restored

Phoenix is cooked against the Spurs, Amon. We'll have to see what happens if there is a Dallas/SanAn Western final. What you call age, I call big game experience. And Duncan is playing real hot right now.

from Yahoo Sports:


The Golden State Warriors (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/teams/gsw/) have to play the league-best Dallas Mavericks (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/teams/dal/), but who cares? After an NBA-high 12-year absence, any postseason appearance is cause for celebration.
"I'm very relieved at this particular moment. I'll wake up tomorrow and it'll be a new day and I'll have a new challenge," Warriors coach Don Nelson said. "But at this particular time I'm going to sit back, drink a cold beer and enjoy the moment. Seize the moment, if you will."

The Warriors have been an afterthought, a punchline, a forgotten sport in the Bay Area for so long (the Sharks--in bleepin' hockey--have been a bigger deal by far) that it's nice to see a little success come their way.

These playoffs are about matchups.

My Mavs do not match up well against Golden State and Nelson has Avery Johnson making changes to the line-up to deal with them. Johnson is rightfully concerned but I think we should just play our game. Stop playing into Nelson's hands.

Phoenix does not match up well against the Spurs, but the Mavs do.

Mavs - Phoenix is a big toss-up.

That is so funny, Darcy- 'cause my partner and I went to our very first NBA playoff game (I was blessed to see MJ a few times in-person, but not for the playoffs) very recently, too- the Bulls' first playoff win. We also just had a blast. I officially love tennis and basketball crowds (as opposed to the crowds with too many other sports.) As loud as the crowd was, everyone was also somehow very polite. It was so funny- my man Baby Nelslus made himself a friend with the VERY straight guy sitting next to him, who shared every single basketball stat with Baby Nelslus known to man. It was all just very professionally done, and even our nose-bleed seats were very good. If anyone gets the chance to go- do so.

Thanks Nelsus, I've been a Bulls fan since MJ but don't follow much b-ball since well MJ retired it only help now that the fulls have a couple of my faves from college. Deng (Duke), Gordon (UConn).

It was sweet looking at Shaq looking like a lost child during these games.

I was a RABID Bulls fan during the MJ years- all the way to the Venus/Roger level- albeit my man might say I was even worse. I'd get so obnoxious that my man would beg me to go find a bar to go watch the game back-in-the-day- which is saying something, since I don't drink. I had VERY few Bulls-friends back then, and to be honest with myself, only one who was as Bulls-psycho and could stand to hang out with me during the MJ playoffs.

So, as each year has gone by, I've dropped NBA games from my schedule more and more- although, as with most sports, I'll watch playoff games, particularly when it's getting near the end. Still, it is fun for the Bulls to be doing well again, for as long as THAT will last.

I don't watch a lot of Basketball, but confess to a mild interest in the Raptors and Steve Nash ... purely a Canadian attachment, I guess.

I did watch the final quarter of the Heat/Bulls game, and was outraged by the deliberate off-play intentional fouls strategy deployed by Miami. I had never seen this before. What was the point? To put a guy on the FT line in the expectation he'd cave to the pressure and they'd come away with less than two points?

Talk about "sissy brand of basketball" ... Miami looked like rank amateurs in the process. Plus it backfired. The Bulls held their composure and smothered the Heat.

I don't know if it's enough to make me cheer for the Bulls through the playoffs, but justice was served on court today.

Maybe they should count these as two fouls against the perpetrators.

I'm still kind of in shock about this. I knew Dwayne Wade was hurt but what about the rest of the team? Doesn't this dude named Shaquille still play for them or is he injured too?

Nice to see the franchise resurrect itself though.

Now when Kobe "it's all about me" Bryant is put on ice until the new season begins I'll be doing the happy dance.

Because believe it or not players like Kobe and now Dwayne Wade make Shaq look good. If they are not playing well neither can he, I'm anxiously waiting for him to now turn on Dwayne like he did Kobe.

It always amazes me how people knock Kobe for his "It's all about me" attitude while Shaq get a free pass, since to me they are both alike in that regard.

I've always been ambivalent about Shaq. I think he showed his azz at the last All Star Game and should have been bitch-slapped.

You can say what you want about MJ. He ran the Bulls and dared anyone to try and stop him. And he could follow up his words with his fists so I'm told. He could carry a team and did so many times not for show but when he had to. These jokers today, the Kobe's, Shaq's and all the other pretenders aren't fit to carry his sneakers.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Garnett when/if he gets to LA won't it?

I guess we see it diferently - I think the main reason Kobe has any rings at all is Shaq... However he has been in slow decline for 3-4 years already and at this point just can't be the main force any more. BTW MJ also reached a point in his career at which he wasn't good enough any more...

Not a Denver Nuggets fan and i literally despise George Karl...But there was is no way the Nuggets can win a close game in this series...Every close call and a few abominable ones are going the Spurs way...It must be pointed out i'm rooting for the Spurs because i want them to take out those sissy Phoenix Suns and the most overhyped player in NBA history, Steve Nash...But Denver is getting the shaft from the refs...Still if AI and Mello shoot a higher percentage they are up 3-1 rather thabeing down

Don't dispair yet...All the Mavs have to do is win a game...Just win a ballgame and see what happens...The Warriors haven't dreamed of winning in nearly 40 years...Lets see if they can handle the pressure of winning a game 6 at home...Do you believe they will win game 7 in Dallas?? Just win a game and see what happens..

I like the Mavericks and still think they are the NBAs best team...But they need to get mean and show a little nasty on the court...They need to pound the ball inside and force the smaller Warriors to foul them...As they settle for perimeter jump shots, Nellie will keep them on the ropes and close it out

If he meant Rodman, then let him say so. In the meantime, I'm quite fond of my time machine theory.

You can call the Suns sissies all night long, but one fact remains. Those "sissies" beat the Spurs in San Antonio. So what does that make the Spurs?

Too bad we'll never know if the Suns could have won the series at full strength. Thanks to that punk Horry. What a sham, the Spurs get rewarded for that thug behavior.

What fantasy land, the one where you are the King?!

Foxy

This involves reading an article, so I'll give you a couple days ... http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs2007/news/story?id=2872149

A few comments that I found particularly interesting ...

There is nothing wrong with playing physical. However, the Horry foul was a dirty play, the Bowen knee was a dirty play, and it was clear there was intent to injure. The thing that is interesting is the Suns were obviously quite upset over the knee. But they were not going to change their style to retaliate. I credit them for sticking to their plan and going out and winning Game 4.

Based on the wording of the rule, the league office had no choice but to suspend Diaw and Stoudemire. However, it may be the most unbalanced ruling in history. Horry got what he deserved for an egregiously flagrant and inflammatory foul. So the Spurs lose their eighth man while the Suns lose a first-team All-NBA player and another starter. What a joke.

The wording needs to be changed. There has to be room for a split-second reaction from the players on the bench. As long as a player or coach recognizes his transgression and quickly gets off the court before engaging in any physical contact with an opposing player, a suspension should not be warranted.
The NBA office has a lot of smart guys. They should use some of their best judgment to avoid the most highly anticipated series of the year being impacted by great players not participating.

If the league can't do a better job of interpreting the spirit of their rules, they won't get it right no matter how the rules are written. I'm a "fairness" over "correctness" guy. As Stu Jackson made clear, he and Stern are not.


Are we all in fantasy land foxy?

The Phoenix Suns are commonly refered to by other NBA teams and knowledgeable basketball fans as a soft sissy team that will never win a championship with their charmin style of play...They need to man up...I am so sick of all the crying about them getting beatup by the Spurs...Be a man and hit someone back...Hard fouls are part of the game...Knocking down star players and players with the hot hands has always been a part of the game...Basketball is a contact sport...Any team that fears contact or cries about it is a sissy team...You might not like it..But its the truth...

There is nothing wrong with physical play. But the Spurs have crossed the line time after time. They are dirty. Just look at the Horry foul that caused this series to become such a sham. Disgusting and dirty and there's no need for it. The NBA is worse off for it. This series is now a joke.

Exactly..I never root for the soft finesse teams...Phoenix might be fun for some to watch...I prefer real basketball...Bang that thing into the low post, hit the boards like there is no tomorrow, play tough hard nose defense....Thats what championship hoops is all about....Duncan is one f the greatest low post players ever...

On the flip side, all this whining and crying about the Spurs beating the Suns up is disgusting....Phoenix needs to man up and quit crying...If you think Bowen is a dirty player knock him out and make it look good...But crying about is so sad and pathetic

I have to say that I've always liked Duncan. But there are dirty players on the Spurs basketball team. There is a difference between physical play and dirty play. Horry showed us what the Spurs are all about the other night. It's just a shame that the wrong team was punished. And if a team is taking cheap shots, like Horry did, trying to injure, I don't believe that the answer is to "knock them out." That type of behavior should not be condoned by the NBA.

Hard fouls and vicious picks have been a part of basketball for 60 years...Its hilarious to hear all the punk whining from the Phoenix fans...The Suns are soft and suffered the fate that all finesse teams endure in the playoff....Like Doug Moe's Denver Nuggets, George Gervins Spurs and Julius Irvings 76'ers prior to Moses Malones arrival, its been proven over the ages that finesses teams can't win the Championship....Phoenix needs a center or another power forward to help Amare out...Stoudemire is a great player...But he is a whiner...Steve Nash might break out in a rash if he played defense....He is a great offensive point guard, but you will never play championship defense with Nash as your starter...He can't or wont guard anyone...Thats why Dallas let him go....Steve Nash will never be Magic Johnson, John Stockton, Isaiah Thomas, Bob Cousey, Pete Maravich, Walt Fraiser, Earl "The Pearl" Monroe or Tony Parker...Nash is very good...But his greatness is vastly overhyped...He only contributes on 1 end of the floor....You will not see Tony Parker light up the Utah point guards the way he blew Naash up...Parker will get his...But Utah will make him earn it....Diaw and Barbosa are defensive liabilites also....Raja Bell and Amare are the only defenders Phoenix has...Thats why they fail each year...

There is absolutely no chance for Utah to win 4 out of 7 over the Spurs. Zero. Zip. Zilch. No chance. None. Same with Cleveland's chances against Detroit. Competitively speaking, these are the worst Conference Finals in a long long time. Let's just fast-forward to Spurs vs. Pistons. Now there's a series that could go either way.

The Suns aren't sissies, they're cerebral!

heheheheh

I don't know enough about hoops to know if this applies, but the lesson from hockey is that if you build your franchise around playmakers only, you better have enforcers on hand to protect them. Back in the day, successful franchises were centered on guys who were famed for controlling the boards as well as putting the puck in the net, guys like Rocket Richard, Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, Boom Boom Geoffrion, and Frank Mahovolich.

There were specialty enforcers like John Ferguson by the late 1960's, but the tipping point was the historic Canada-Soviets series in '72, when the brilliant tactical play of the Russians threatened to pack the Canucks off to Siberia. Then it was gutsy, even dirty, play of players like Bobby Clarke that pulled out the series. "Big hero" Paul Henderson was just in the right place at the right time.

Through the 1980's too much credit for the tremendous success of the Edmonton Oilers was given to the dazzling skills of sissies like Wayne Gretzky and Jari Kurri, when it was tough guys like Mark Messier and enforcers like Dave Semenko that allowed them do their thing. Rumour is that the "Great" Gretzky didn't see his fingernails during his entire career. That's why it wasn't a disaster for him to be traded, and why the Oilers went on to win another Stanley Cup without him.

Is basketball much different? Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems that, like hockey, you've got increasingly larger men playing in close quarters on a constricted surface [even more so - hockey has the anomaly of varying rink sizes by venue] so it's bound to be physical. Pretty boy play can be entertaining, but you have to be able to back it up.

This is how the pugnacious scrapper "King" Clancy summed it up in his typical street sense wisdom: "If you can't beat them in the alley, you won't beat them on the ice".

Great point Peterskan...Basketball has always operated the same way...Great teams have always had enforcers to protect thier superstars...If you hit the superstar retaliation is imminent and vicious....It goes way back to the 60s...Paul Silas, Dave Cowens, Wes Unseld, Jeff Ruland, Ballard, Kevin McHale, Cedric Maxwell, Maurice Lucas, Charles Barkley, Kurt Rambis, Michael Thompson, Dennis Rodman...I could name a more...But its a man rule...If your star gets kicked, you don't cry like a sissy...You kick back twice as hard..Its the code that makes all NBA dynasties viable....Phoenix plays a fun brand of hoops to watch...But honestly they need to man up and stop crying...They need to sign a free agent willing to kick arse and be the enforcer that protects Steve Nash..

Thanks for this info. You've obviously got a strong grasp of the game and its history, so I'm wondering if you can help me out with this.

As the TV market exploded, the hockey media has pandered to articulate and telegenic offensive playmakers like Wayne Gretzky ["The Great One"], Mario Lemieux, Syd Crosbey, etc.These are the guys who log the ice time [typically 20 to 30 minutes of a 60 minute game] needed to produce offensively and who lead the team and or league offensive stats. They hog the limelight and typically are rewarded with team and/or league MVP honours.

These guys are/were good, no doubt about it, and frequently also have the spirit and character to serve as team captain. But there's a telling statistic in hockey that is often overlooked: the +/-. It's not a perfect indicator of individual performance because it can be impacted by team performance. But over time it speaks volumes. It records the difference between goals scored by your team when you are on the ice and goals scored by the other team when you are on the ice. So a plus/minus score of -10 means that for the season [or for yor career], your opponents had ten more goals than your team did when you were on the ice.

Think about it now in terms of assets and iabilities in relation to team outcomes!

Interestingly, what you often find is that soft-handers like Gretzky fared poorly in this category. These guys spent their careers circling centre ice waiting for a headman pass for a one-on-one breakaway against the opposing goalie. When the neutral zone trap was innovated by teams like the New Jersey Devils in the late-90's, it was game over for the likes of Gretzky. Why? Because they couldn't play defense to save their lives. But solid two-way players like Mark Messier continued to flourish.

It's all more complicated than this, of course, but you get the idea. I was reminded of this from your comment about Steve Nash's lack of defensive skills [a curious choice, then, for MVP].

Obviously it makes sense to search for the right combination of role players when building your team, but I think you would want to start with the smartest two-way players.

I'd like your thoughts on whether these considerations apply to basketball and who the best two-way players are/have been in the game.

PeterCan,

It seems like calling Gretzky "the Great One", sort of sticks in you throat.

Stat wise, I always thought it fit him. I guess you think differently. And I thought by the mid 90's Gretzky career was basically over. Just play a few more season, to draw in the fans, but not a factor.

Again you understand far more about hoops than you believe...Defense winning championships is nearly universal in competative sports...If you look at the last four teams standing in the NBA, San Antonio, Detroit, Cleveland and Utah...They all excel on both ends of the floor...The Spurs and Pistons can beat you 110-103 or beat you 84-81 if they have to....The Phoenix Suns will never be a championship team until they can clamp down on the defensive end and get some crucial stops...The Suns problem is they only have two players on thier roster that play defense...Raja Bell and Amare Stoudemire do it on both ends...You just can't stop anyone with only two defenders...Nash is a great offensive point guard...Phoenix really lights it up...But Nash wont or can't guard anyone....Don't get me talking about his 2 MVP awards...It makes me wanna barf...If you look at the list of names that have 2 MVP awards in NBA history, its quite evident that Nash is undeserving....IMHO he won his first because the sports media hates Kobe Bryant too much to give him his due...The one he won last year should have gone to Dirk Nowitski...My opinion is unpopular because Nash seems to be a very nice guy...But i have been an NBA fan all my life..I know what i am talking about...Just telling ti like it is...Steve Nash is great for scoring points...But MVP?? puuhlleaassssseee
