Your Opinion is Wrong
First of all, no anti-Spurs bias here. The Ginobili madness must cease. On this blog and beyond. This guy is a product of playoff storylines. There is nothing special about his style of play. Seriously. The guy causes havoc. So does Mark Madsen. So does Danny Fortson and so did Dennis Rodman. People act like we've never seen a player like him before?! George Karl, Marcus Camby, Skip Bayless, and all the smug Doug Collins types would have you think so. I hope he enjoyed the best season of his life in which he averaged 16ppg. In two years everyone will have forgotten about him, and Kevin Millar.
Second, I take back what I said about Glenn Robinson. He was only 2 for 6 last night, but he hit the biggest shot of the series. And no WAY Brent Barry, Bowen, or Parker (much less the 03-04 Hedo Turkoglu) would have made that.
On another note, is there anything more ironic than watching Glenn Robinson guard Carmelo Anthony? It's like the broke ass version of Shaq vs. Amare. Big Dog vs. Little Dog. It is the cinematic moment when the son looks into his father's eyes to see what he will become.
Quick scouting note: NO ONE MOVES WITHOUT THE BASKETBALL WORSE THAN MELO. He is the anti-Rip Hamilton.
And as much as I hate to say it, Carmelo showed me something. He very well could be the next Big Dog/Toine, but he has waaaaay more "upside" than I have been giving him credit for (at least more upside, than, say, Emeka Okafor...yeah I said it).
This Celts-Pacers series is like a pimple on the back of my neck. If I were Puppetmaster Stern, I would make sure to script Reggie Miller coming out of retirement next year to join and Artest-having Pacers team on a mission to crush kill destroy.
Steve Kerr tried to use the example of Kwame Brown vs. Michael Ruffin as an example of why basketball players should go to college before the NBA. Ummm, NO.
Holdup, I'm about to drop the SAT ANALOGY OF THE CENTURY: Ben Wallace is to Defense as Antawn Jamison is to Offense.
Does that even require an explanation???!!??!?!!!
