Like Bright, Thorny Soda
Essential reading: Joey's two-part NBA preview over at Straight Bangin':
Joey's an honorary FreeDarko member, and these are probably honorary FD posts.
I'm taking a short sabbatical from gushing over Durant, mostly because I've said it all before (like yesterday) and now it's quickly coming true. Instead, some other observations from last night:
-If anyone knows what Bill Russell and Clay Bennett talked about, you can have a free shirt.
-The Suns looked really dissonant last night, which is especially strange given that the Sonics threw nothing in particular at them. Have they become that orthodox?
-I've been saying it to friends with urgency: Delonte West is the new Mike Bibby.
-Chris Wilcox is the most mediocre dominant, dynamic big man I've ever seen.
-Speaking of which, Amare looks more spry, but just doesn't seem to want to dunk on skull every time he gets the ball
-Yes, I missed T-Mac drop forty plus in "Game Eight." It's a long season.
-Fuck a brawl-free, scandal-free, imbalance-free campaign; what about an injury-free opus?
-One Durant point: For him alone, the Sonics are probably near the top of my mandatory viewing list.
-With Smush and Ricky running the South Beach vacant, will Dorell Wright get braids before Wade returns?
-FD Dark Horse for 2007-08 is most definitely Francisco Garcia.
-I hate bars, especially when there are four or five drunken (former) frat boys cheering ravenously when Wally or Collison gets buckets.
-Rumor has it, Kid Rock was at the Sonics home opener last night.
-It's true, I thought Damien Wilkins was Gerald Wilkins.
-Tonight, it's Rondo Time.
