Precursor to a Beatdown
Read all about it here. Adelman is calling out the Sonics for flopping and is sending video to the NBA. Surefire sign that the Kings are headed fishing. If history has taught us anything, it is that one of the 21st century's greatest sports cliches is:
-Coach/Player A on Team A complain about unfair treatment, cheating/disrespect for the rules by Team B
-Team B defeats Team A
-Player B from Team B states, "We'll beat them under any circumstances."
Now, I can't really think of a good example of this besides Tony Dungy ragging on the Pats's D-Backs for holding, but let me assure you, this is a sign of a desperate man.
In other news, I am incredibly happy that this story came to light. Make no mistake about it: Alonzo Mourning is a true jerk, who has somehow managed, with a few gestures, to make the general public see otherwise. The story of how he completely screwed over the team that basically mothered him when he was down and out was one of the most overlooked of the year. Boo to Zo. You are the despicable version of the Karl Malone Laker of last year. Go Heat. And Go Bulls.
