Well DUH. Thing is, I love the numbers of the game. I'm obviously a Browns fan, and I love keeping track of the win/loss records, weekly standings, possible playoff scenarios, etc. Even set up an Excel workbook to keep track of the NFL season for the last 3 years. So now I've been playing around with the Tribe W/L stats this year, and the Cavs as well. Since I saw the posts for the NCAA football and the NFL, thought maybe there would be interest in one for the NBA. It's kind of neat to see how things change over the course of the season.
Just be glad I didn't put: 4. ***--->CLEVELAND<---***

That he BLATANTLY stole from me. Of course, I can see how anxious he would be to see where his precious Panthers were seeded after crapping the bed in Chicago on Sunday. (THBBBBBBBBPT, Jag!)

It was the easiest impersonation I could manage at 2am. Of course, I left those mistakes in the NFC numbering in there just so people would think it was you.
Also, I raised the briefcase.
Ha, that's awesome. After Anonymous Day ended, I didn't even realize that. Great job, Jaguar.
In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
No way! Kobe's on fire so far. Cant argue with 35-40 points a game. I CAN argue with NO points per game from anyone else, though. Also, Kwame Brown = USELESS. And dont give me any of that "We're only 10 games in, give him time" crap either. When you're 7-foot-something, you have NO excuse to blow a damn lay up (or 10 lay ups).
And That Rat Bastard Lamar Odom wont even shoot the damn ball! I missed the game vs. Chicago, but I think I read that he only shot the ball 4-5 times???? I could get more shots off than that!

BUT, Kobe's taken more shots per game than the next THREE Lakers, with a lower effective field goal percentage and less points per shot, while also averaging nearly three turnovers per game. So, essentially his ball-hogging is AT LEAST somewhat hurting the team, right?
Also, if Kobe wasn't such a (fill in your own derogatory comment), the Lakers might have an easier time getting better teammates for him. Smush Parker? Come on, now.

You know, after working at Staples Center for the second half of last season, I came out with the notion that the Clippers were definitely a team on the rise who played with a lot of passion and intensity. Yeah, they just missed the playoffs, but they played hard each and every night and I had a feeling that their effort would pay off in the future. I just didn't think it'd be NOW. If they keep playing at this rate, they might not only make the playoffs, but maybe they'll even (GASP) WIN a playoff game! That's just plain nuts.
On the other end of the spectrum, I got a bad vibe out of the Lakers crowds. They were losing patience with each and every loss and Allen Iverson got a louder pop than Kobe did during the Easter Sunday game. The only guy that was playing exceptionally hard was Caron Butler and I still can't believe he got jettisoned in favor of...sigh...Kwame Brown. Zen Master or no, the Lakers' current funk comes as no surprise to me at all and if Mitch Kupchak doesn't lose his job by next Thanksgiving, I'll be absolutely shocked.
For as much noise as has been made about Kobe and Phil, Los Angeles has slowly turned into Clipper Country. Who knew?
Well, do the Lakers trade Kobe this year in order? Most teams in this league would take him in a heartbeat and I know the Knicks would pony up big time. Any grumblings of trading Kobe out there in La La land?

Let's gather 'round the campfire and sing our campfire song, Our C-A-M-P-F-I-R-E S-O-N-G song, And if you don't think that we can sing it faster, then you're wrong, But it'll help if you just sing along....

Kind of a Champions League for basketball...I'd dig that. It's too bad that the NBA won't ever put themselves aside enough to truly make that happen, though, as you probably have to put some rounds in during the season, like they do with soccer.
