Either You're With Us or You're Against Us

Tonight. 630pm EST. ESPN2. This man reminds us that even in the summer months, the Association is never too far away.

Public apology for all the "Freedarko Lite" posting. My mind has been somewhere else, with baseball and the Twins, which has been sadly analogous to my 04-05 experience with following the Wolves.

Speaking of ESPN NBA personalities - what am I going to do without my daily dose of Chad Ford? Apparently, he's going to be teaching at BYU-Hawaii?!? I think it's time to cancel my Insider subscription (and maybe start it up again when the NBA Draft rolls around). Is it sad that I'm bummed about this? Methinks yes.

I'm pretty sure this shit starts at 6:30 and not 8:00... and AI is the first guest. Holler!

you're right. it's changed. LB will be in the house too...right?

Actually, it appears we were both right about the times. I think it's airing at 6:30 then re-airing at 8... at least, that's what this seems to suggest.

Dunno for sure about LB. I'm watching either way... probably twice.

AI's domestic dispute = TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET PT. 6!!!

"I came up in the house, with a gun...where I pay the rent...and I came up on...I'm just gonna be straight with yall, 'some dudes that like other dudes'"

Shit is too real.

the best part was where stephen a. tells AI to "be real for a minute," and AI says, "always be real." he should interview AI every night, that shit was incredible.

"I'll get it done." Hah.

AI is impossible to hate.

I love Iverson, but did he make his shirt with an HP Deskjet Printer?

i like that iverson's rationale was that there's no need for rape and child abuse, whereas sometimes you do need to steal or kill someone. that is an actual defensible ethical position.

missed it last night, caught part of this evening's notre dame-a-thon. couldn't have cared less, stephen a. didn't make me care. deferring to the mystique, admittedly tried to get the race issue going but left it alone when it became clear the show was destined for a love-fest. not that i expected him to go at charlie weis or lou holtz. .. still, you have to wonder if this was an attempt to balance out iverson.

today i started writing a "dream is dead" post about the suns, johnson's defection pending. but all this is is a more extreme version of what i said last week. the suns, and the wizards, have decided that there's a limit to the unlikely formula for success they stumbled upon last year. . . just as the mavericks learned a few years ago (kings could play in the halfcourt and with determination, just did it prettier than other people). the suns are clearly putting together a team to get past the spurs, and i'm not sure this is such a bad idea. don't sleep on raja bell. or jim jackson, who's still there.

and, for a team that made headlines playing small last year (q, marion, amare up front), they now have arguably the most formidable front court in recent memory (marion, kurt thomas, amare). this is a team that's decided to live and die by the pick and roll, the dish inside, the finish.

to sum up:

stephen a.: down a gear, not so much traction

suns: down a gear, ready to bear down
