Not that it matters (thankfully) but I am posting this picture to clear Amare's record. He did NOT foul George Hill on that shot. Full size image here Photo by Ronald Martinez, Getty Images
Nash = Rocky. Can't beat him down!
In this episode of the 48MoH Podcast, Tim and Andrew from www.48minutesofhell.com talk with Michael Schwartz of Valley of the Suns about what else? The Spurs-Suns series. Topics include stat geeks, whether Jared Dudley’s play is overrated or properly rated, 3-point shooting and small ball. You know, the important stuff.
LeBron James and Goran Dragic both had incredible performances last night. Instead of blaming the Celtics and Spurs the focus should only be on how the great performances by both players rendered the defenses useless.
Inside the Suns locker room after Game 3. Incredible, chilling stuff. via Suns.com
Again another nice comic by a fan in China after Game 2. The black speech bubble says "Map of Phoenix 2008" The white speech bubble says, "That's strange, this should be a resort according to the map..." Link to the original: http://my.hoopchina.com/feizhipi/blog/3411614.html
Sun Arise.. seems apt for today. enjoy.
Robin Lopez will be inactive for tonight's Game 3 at San Antonio. He continues to improve but Suns coach Alvin Gentry said Thursday that he is not ready to play. He last played March 26, when he was suffering from a bulging disk that pinched a nerve causing weakness in his right leg.
Behold - the newest item on Steve Nash's amazing age rejuvenating diet. It's plain - boring - it smells - it's bland - nobody likes it... but boy does it hit the spot! Nash is eating the Spurs up. Literally.
The Phoenix crowd is wired differently from a typical NBA crowd: more urgency, more unbridled excitement, more vitriol for the refs, more hatred for their opponents, more everything. It's like a college atmosphere, only angry and more desperate. Everyone wears orange, everyone screams, everyone seems hopelessly tied to the ebb and flow of the game. When the wrong call or break goes against them, 40 years of torture quickly bubble to the surface and every defense mechanism kicks in. It's tangible. You can feel it. They totally believe in this team ... only they totally don't. If that makes sense.Bill Simmons nails it right on the head in his most recent piece on the Suns.
