Roving Afterthoughts

1. The brawl in Madison Square Garden would not be nearly as big of a deal if the "Palace Brawl" had never happened. Mardy Collins should have fouled the shit out of J.R. Smith. Smith should have gotten in his face afterwards. Isiah Thomas should not like George Karl and George Karl should not like Isiah Thomas. There is bad blood between people who compete on a regular basis. A lot of the criticism is coming from the same people who claim NBA players do not play with any passion or desire for their team. Yes, it escalated to a point that it should not have. But these are 21-24 year olds competing at the highest level possible. Confrontations will happen. These guys are still kids. David Stern should only be thanking God Marcus Camby has matured and only tried to stop the fight, or this could have been a lot worse.

2. I am officially on the Greg Oden bandwagon. How could you ever feel you have a chance of losing a game when he is on your team? It will be a bigger adjustment to the NBA, but he is the most dominant center in college since Shaq. Already.

3. I hate Sebastian Telfair. I'm still working on all the reasons, but there are plenty of them. It really pisses me off that he wears the number 30 because I think it is one of the coolest numbers for a point guard. This is an attempt to find the coolest things about Sebastian Telfair. Here are the top ten coolest things about him:
1. He wears the number 30

4. There need to be more clips of Bobby Orr on Youtube.com. If you ever have the chance to watch footage of Bobby Orr playing hockey, take it. He is amazing, and I don't even enjoy hockey.

5. It's a damn shame Gilbert Arenas had to drop 60 on the Lakers in the Wizards gold uniforms. These may be some of the ugliest uniforms that have ever existed. Also, apparently Kobe Bryant told Phil Jackson to let him guard Arenas towards the end of the fourth quarter and the full overtime. Gilbert responded by dropping more points in an overtime than anyone before. It looked like Kobe just quit trying to guard him.

6. I vote a country merge with Canada so Steve Nash can play on our Olympic team.

Speaking of the Nuggs, apparently AI will be shopping for a mountain cabin in Aspen this winter. I now know for certain that Santa does not exist, for the only thing on my X-mas list was that Bird and Donnie Walsh would pull the trigger and do whatever it took to land Iverson on the Pacers. Not even this bottle of eggnog that I am currently nursing will spell the disappointment of losing the AI sweepstakes. Just thinking of Jamal Tinsley at the point for the rest of this season really makes this a blue Christmas for Jumping Bull

Thelonious, I think you need to remember that not all young people who play basketball against one another compete like yourself and Natty.

Also, after seeing Jamal Tinsley in person, I completely agree with jb....and despite what Haystacks would like to believe, their backup sucks too. Man, AI really would've been great in Indy. Hey, at least the Colts won on Monday.

Have you guys heard about Fat Head? It's this new thing, and it's the coolest. It's like a poster that sticks to your wall, and the best part is that if you don't like where it is, you just peel it off and put it on a new wall. I recommend you bitches get one for all your friends for Christmas.
