They Will Take You There (Podcast!)

purestock_1574r-01009a.medium_d6d8_xh8d

You asked for more Nuggets, and dang, are you gonna get it. This week's episode of FreeDarko Presents the Disciples of Clyde NBA Podcast is devoted largely to a "why not us" take on Denver, as well as an examination of George Karl's hidden, at times self-defeating, genius. And a rare chance to hear the voice of one Brown Recluse, Esquire. I know, huh? Also, be sure you've read recent convert Joey's clear-eyed breakdown of their charms, and absorb the "live-blog" I did with Zac Crain for D Magazine. Yee-haw! Take that, Frank Deford!!!

Star role player: I always worry about Anthony turning into Antoine Walker, anyone else see that happen?

Does anyone else really hate the new "Team Role" visual that TNT is using when guys are at the freethrow line?
The had Chauncey as "Commander-in-chief".
Dirk as "Primary Offensive Option"
And Melo as "#1 Offensive Option"

Its so limiting and pointless.

And, Shane: No way, Melo wil do more than shimmy in his career.

ARE YOU FUCKING JOKING ME? GAME 2 WAS OLD SKOOL COLLEGE IN IT TO WIN IT MELO. 15 IN THE 4TH, PATTED DALLAS HEADS AND BUTTS TO DEFUSE ANY TENSION, MADE THE REFS LOVE HIM (RAISED HIS HAND AFTER EVERY FOUL THAT HE HAD, NEVER CAUSED RUCKUS EXCEPT IN THE DIRECTION OF THE RIM, PASSES TO HIS TEAMMATES, AND DEFENSIVELY)

what's most interesting to me is how the nuggets take a shitload of threes (kinda like orlando), and they make less of them than a team like orlando (usually), but still gets to a rim way more than a team like orlando, which offsets the inefficiency of all those missed threes. i remember sometime someone said that running basketball isn't about quick shots necessarily, it's about quick and efficient defensive plays (steals, blocks, turnovers, forced shots) and exploding off of that. denver has been remarkably good at pulling huge runs and point totals because in every game they're capable of consistently turning on their crazy defense and get like 4 turnovers in a row.

I will always love Antoine Walker, mostly for the idea of him. But still, love 'Toine. Still sad he went down his path.

Melo is one blown ACL/knee/ankle away from going down the 'Toine path...

altho if it ever comes down to it he would be better off just packing it up and going overseas to fulfill his destiny as the Greatest Euroleague Player Ever.

after talking ad infinitum about role players role-ing on the nugs, someone brought up melo "maturing", or "toning down his craziness", or something like that, as i remember.

you do realize you missed the chance to say "mellowing"?

I just got home from work and watched highlights ...

KOBE OFF THE BACKBOARD TO HIMSELF!!!!

I hope Rafer Alston does not get suspended from game three fro whacking House on Fire in the head. The Magic would have a much better chance of winning without him.

Regarding Mamba...he looked possessed, arrogant, tuned in, and angry. Last nights game was a perfect example of why Kobe can illicit both love and hate in equal helpings.

Mr. Six, I agree, the dunk was special.

I think Kobe's decision, when stuck between two defenders, not to pass to a teammate in a better position but to himself, perfectly sums up what Kobe is all about.

Oh, and no team on which Sasha Vujacic averages more than 10 mpg will ever win an NBA championship.

Melo is like a combination of Toine and Paul Pierce. With the potential for all the good and or bad that could come with that. Hopefully he doesn't end up fat and getting stabbed in a club. Although that seems to be about as reasonable a possibility as him ending up getting to the line 12 times a game in the NBA finals and shimmying down the court after hitting a game winner.
