Neither can the wave that has passed by be recalled
Although an unfortunately timed snowstorm prevented Shoals from being able to witness Melo's comeback game live in H-Town, we still felt that we needed to commemorate the event in some way, and what better than hastily organized, impromptu chat coverage of most of the second half by Shoals, Dr. LIC, and yours truly? You know how we do.
Brown Recluse, Esq.: the nuggets seem to think that being unselfish means throwing no look passes whenever possible
Bethlehem Shoals: j.r. smith passes like it's a shot
Recluse: jr smith must be incredibly frustrating to coach
Recluse: the nuggets are playing loose in the bad sense
Dr. LIC: this memphis season just further proves the genius of the grizz front office
Dr. LIC: find a legit reason to unload gasol for good bulls
Dr. LIC: develop gay and warrick
Dr. LIC: and pick up oden
Dr. LIC: genius
Recluse: they're going to fire this running coach
Dr. LIC: yup
Recluse: whatever this italian dude's name is
Dr. LIC: tony barone
Dr. LIC: and all the while the players are happy because they get to score
Shoals: karl said on saturday something to the effect of everything that goes right for us is because of najera
Dr. LIC: najera is their one "right way" player
Dr. LIC: the jazz are the reverse negative of everything
Dr. LIC: their african american stars start playing well (williams and boozer)
Dr. LIC: and then the euros start bitching (AK and giricek)
Dr. LIC: i mean, not that the opposite normally happens… but that's what everyone THINKS happens
Shoals: aren't boozer and deron halfies?
Dr. LIC: the only bit i saw of the nuggets game was AI smile at the free throw line
Dr. LIC: that's all i needed to see
Shoals: it is really weird that nba tv has an arab analyst
Recluse: he's terrible, too
Shoals: or maybe only that's because i watched 24 earlier
Shoals: and also you should pick up steve blake
Shoals: BLACK KOREA
Recluse: is steve blake korean?
Shoals: that's his nickename
Shoals: because he is neither black nor korean
Recluse: who gave him this nickname?
Recluse: just now?
Recluse: nene has been a HUGE disappointment to me
Recluse: he went before amare!!!
Dr. LIC: Nene is fat
Shoals: he speaks spanish
Dr. LIC: portuguese
Recluse: he's brazilian
Shoals: but pretends he doesn't so he can not have to do interviews with spanish media
Shoals: some charming older guy finally talked him into admitting he knew spanish
Shoals: dude, this is locker room knowledge
Shoals: gasol "pretty good"
Shoals: what a fucking homer clown
Shoals: gasol is the most underrated star in the league
Dr. LIC: probably
Recluse: thank you
Shoals: gasol has never even been rated
Shoals: one way or the other
Recluse: and he's not even 100% yet
Shoals: you never even watch him play
Dr. LIC: you know what
Dr. LIC: i think we should revisit the fact that you dont need to watch players to know how good they are
Recluse: barone looks he knows he's going to be fired
Dr. LIC: grizzlies have a great racket
Dr. LIC: coach doesn't care that he's going to be fired, because he is getting air time
Dr. LIC: players don't care if they lose, because they're getting big numbers ( = big contracts)
Dr. LIC: gasol can leave on reasonable terms
Shoals: doesn't "allen iverson, 20ppg" look weird?
Shoals: how is this game not over?
Dr. LIC: the nuggets uniforms are TERRIBLE
[Iverson throws alley oop pass that Melo is barely able to throw down.]
Dr. LIC: that was cool
Shoals: that was what i thought this whole game would be like
Dr. LIC: why is AI dancing around like they are in the playoffs
Recluse: AI seems to think melo can jump higher than he really can. he barely got that one and didn't get to one earlier
Shoals: "unselfish basketball is fun"
Dr. LIC: denver is making AI moronic
Dr. LIC: /soft
Shoals: melo is not a finisher
Dr. LIC: there are so many whites in the nba
Dr. LIC: indiana, memphis, utah
Dr. LIC: all teams of whites
Recluse: gasol is spanish
Recluse: memphis really should be a black team
Shoals: that's why no one goes to see them
Recluse: gordon/deng for gasol wouldn't make them any blacker
Dr. LIC: more british
Dr. LIC: "get crumpets"
Dr. LIC: we should do a post about players whose names sound like they should be presidents
Dr. LIC: alexander johnson
Shoals: richard hamilton
Shoals: grant hill
Dr. LIC: earl barron
Dr. LIC: daniel gibson
Dr. LIC: (i'm done with presidents)
Shoals: j.r.'s attitude is like a dumb kobe
Shoals: really moody and transparent
Shoals: and surprisingly fragile
Shoals: not fragile, unstable
Dr. LIC: sounds like blatche
Shoals: blatche has a psyche?
Shoals: i don't think there's a post in this
Shoals: wasn't a post in that game, actually
Dr. LIC: post it anyway
