You know, if Utah had beaten CRZ's beloved Kings, I had begun to think this whole year of the upset thing (Arizona, New England, IU's run to the Final 2) was a work.
Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform, And tell you every detail of Caractacus's uniform; In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral, I am the very model of a modern Major-General.
Lucky for the Sacramento fans that Scott Padget had the ultimate brain-fart in that final play ... Imagine that, being called for offensive goal-tending trying to dunk in a three-point attempt by John Stockton that LOOKED like it was going to go in without any outside help!
He should have just kept his hands to himself; a two-point basket wasn't going to do jack-shit at that time ...
Yes Scott Padgett is an idiot and did make a mistake but just because that shot looked good doesn't mean the Jazz would've won if it went it, it would've just gone into overtime in which i'm confident the Kings still would've won.
Actually, Alston at six years for only $29 million ain't bad... I can't imagine that eating up very much salary-cap space. Not sure I'd sign him for six years, mind you, but the $29M is a relatively low number-- an average of only $4.83 million a year.
