I'm a Bulls fan and I had no problem with Rondo bitch smacking Miller. It was either that or get a three point play. And it was pretty funny to see the toughest dude on the Bulls almost cry. Bulls are winning game 7.

Scoring the game winner with less than 90 seconds left in regulation isn't a blow out

The rockets game, on the other hand, was. I still can't bring myself to like Ron Artest though

A friend in the local Magic community started in on people about overusing "blowout". Now everything anyone does is a blowout. "Blowout", "one time", and "get there" too.

Woah, woah Harvey. I can taste the bitterness from here.

Rondo just did what he had to. Went for the ball but his hand came flying past it to hit his face. He was definately trying to do a hard foul as the game was on the line. There have been worse fouls and hits this playoff season.

Celts are probably not getting to the Finals this year. I'm not even sure they'll get past the Magic. Pierce is looking lethargic some nights. Ray Ray is a fucking assassin but he's cold some nights too. Rondo is playing like a legend the way he's carrying the team at times. I mean, we had Brian fucking Scallabrine playing most of the Game 1. Guy is hilariously goofy looking, he didn't play that bad but we should never be hoping that Brian Scallabrine is going to save us.

If we manage to get past the Magic, no way we're getting past Cleveland. Lebron is a force of nature this year and I'm not sure any team is going to stop them.

I'd be wary of that Rockets team. They should not be taken for granted as since T-Mac, the worthless guy that he is, left they have really gelled. Could be an upset in LA.

Beyond all that shit, what do you think of Ovechkin Kaz? Guy is sick, amirite?

Current best offensive forward in the world but he's making a huge mistake by extending his shifts for so long in the playoffs

As it should be.

Screw Boston/New England teams too. Except the Sox. They're one of the few reliable teams to root for to take down the Empire.

Course I'm bitter dray. Damn Celtics. I was so bitter from last years lost. Anyway, if the Rockets beat the Lakers, it still won't effect me as much as the Celtics stomping of the Lakers last year.

What I want is a rematch between the Celtics and Lakers. And of course, the Lakers to win. In a way, I think all the Celtics fans want another series vs the Lakers as well. The rivalry is insane, the fans despise eachother, but all in all, it makes for some damn good basketball.

Man, the playoffs are getting intense. Martin manhandling Dirk, House getting slapped by Alston, Artest being you're good old average pyscho, and little Derek Fisher knocking Scola to the ground.

If I was Stu Jackson or David Stern, I would let every one of these players still play, no suspensions. Basketball is actually exciting this year.

What a Game 6. Caps winning without Ovechkin scoring a goal. Niiiicee.

Now let's finish off the damn Pens back in DC.

At least the Magic/Celtics series is going to be interesting. Didn't see Big Baby hitting the game winner coming.

And I was really surprised of the Yao-less Rockets handing the Lakers their butt. Don't think the Rockets will have much more steam though for the rest of the series.

I'd really like hockey if it wasn't so inaccessible. There's no professional team near where I live, and no regularly televised games.

Once the superbowl is over, nbc starts airing a couple of games per week. The official national broadcaster is (ugh) versus. If you weren't aware of the existence of the channel, that's normal. It used to be the outdoor life network. It still is, it just has hockey and wrestling now in between extreme bullriding and lumberjack competitions

Weirdest thing, Gary Bettman, whose continued employment as the commissioner of NHL will be regarded as one of history's greatest mysteries, is completely obsessed with "expanding the sport". To the point where he will do everything to keep shitty teams no one watches located in southern communities uninterested in hockey on life support, and won't lift a finger to save decent northern teams with an actual fanbase (so he can move them south, see). Yet, despite all this, he keeps renewing the tv contract with versus instead of giving it to fox or espn2

Every year he cites increased revenue as proof of the success of his strategy. Except, the NHL has revenue sharing and teams like atlanta, florida and phoenix are huge drains

And dray, Ovie had 3 assists. It's not like he wasn't doing anything

So lame ass Cox decides to block out the Ducks-Wings games even though I live in San Diego. Fucking lame, the series is great.
