FD's League Pass Intimacy



I learned a valuable lesson last night about this nascent routine of ours. The truth is, there are FD match-ups, but they depend primarily on the presence of FD teams. So while part of me wants to recommend Spurs/Suns, I can't front like I'll be watching. When this site first dared to believe, this pairing was as symbolic as it got. Now, it's a Spurs team that's not so boring, never stimulating, gorging itself on a twice-broken machine. The Suns can't be the Amare show, they aren't Diaw's Children no more, and unfortunately Reborn Jalen Rose isn't going to be the new anthem.

Instead, I invite you to direct your eyes unto Celtics/Bobcats, which has the potential to resemble THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME IN THE HISTORY OF OUR LEANINGS. I'd like to remind Simmons that there's a basic difference between Duns, Jr. and Rudy Gay: both may be all about potential, but one is a tease, the other an embryonic shimmering. Celtics/Bobcats will be a ton of young players, all a year or two away from their expiration date, suddenly finding themselves capable of peforming in an NBA-style environment. That, my friend, is no illusion--it's that show where you get to see your grandchildren fight off aliens. And be damn proud of it.

Nice piece of FD fodder on Saint Julius in there, though. Eventually he's just gonna walk the earth.

The No League Pass Halftime Report: Amare shooting and running well (sorry Bill) but Duncan and Oh Boy Oberto have 23 points between them.

the main problem with freedarko is that all these teams still have veterans on them. something seeing wally, brevin knight, kandiman, and ratliff dominate makes me less and less inclined to follow my own advice.

Off all the teams that are FD why hasn't anyone mentioned the Toronto Raptors. CB4, MO-P and a bunch of Euro guys...

holy christ, i'm never watching a celtics home game again.

also having paid attention to both howard and okafor this week, i don't think omeka was necessarily a mistake. he certainly knows more about basketball, and might always will.

those stories about him asking gordon "what are you thinking when you drive from this angle" are priceless.

League pass was supposed to be gone after the 7th for me, but it's still on. I'm gonna cry when it leaves me. They always leave me. At least with nbatv/tnt/sunshinenetwork(magic)/espn i get about one game a day. It's probably healthier to watch 1 a day.

Yea, i don't think simmons has been watching the nba as much as he claims the past few years. It's not as bad as his pop culture references, but he's not as sharp as he used to be in the bball department. Oh well.

Fucking dwight howard, man. It's hard watching him touch the ball. He's averaging about 5-6 turnovers a game and about 5 fouls a game. He's just not that bright a guy. He seems like that really nice, but kinda dumb friend that everyone keeps around because he's just so darn nice....and huge and athletic. He better watch out and learn how to play with a basketball in his hands or bynum may take his "best young center" title by next season.

Was anything weirder than Oberto and Amare's lines from tonight's game? I mean, i think we all knew what was going to happen in OT.

Absolutely brilliant, Rob I.

I wish I had said that on this morning's 'cast...
