Put horns on that rabbit!!
New shit up on
Some other observations:
-At the heart of any discussion of last season is the Suns, and after watching them gouge the Clippers, I've once and for all decided that this edition is a better team. What's missing, though, and why I still can't fully get into the idea that they're as must-watch as they were a spring ago, is that there's not enough puncuation on all the hypertactic elegance. Sure, Marion can finish, but he's too ethereal for me to feel he's really turning each posession into a full-fledged statement of overtakingness. As in, he inserts the exclamation point, but I want the whole fucking thing in caps.
-Are those NBA spots about the travel rule a joke? Wasn't the last one a clinic on mid-range jumpers? I know the timing doesn't make sense, but I can't help but wonder if these aren't an answer to the shit-eating "this is to remind the pros what boxing out looks like" commercial that New Balance ran during the ASG.
-Chris Kaman looks like a seven-foot tall Gary Busey, and has single-handedly upped the ante on "active" big white guys.
-I'm sick of hearing about all how high all these guards rank in points in the paint. I know points are points, and the paint is the paint, but damn, couldn't they differentiate between "in the paint" and "into the paint?"
-NOT GROUNDLESS HATING: Ever notice how, whenever the Suns play, their guys gush about how much fun it is, the opposing team can barely hold back the smiles, and the announcers gush about what a wonderul, lovable sport it is in their hands? That might be the essence of the FreeDarko position: competitive basketball, yes, but it should never, ever be joyless.
