Never too late to savor a Championship year
"I know it looks like a Godzilla sized Steph curry is going to kick Steph curry in the butt. That's an optical illusion." I literally guffawed in the office and now people are looking at me. I mean, there are so many E1P gems in this super saiyan celebration audit compilation. Seeing them all together though, really makes it clear how great the humor is. It is the delivery, of course, but its also Eric's synchronization of comments with the visual action on the screen. Here's to at least 16 more of these celebration audits this season. (Hopefully, one starring two-way Wigs and Riley both getting back into celebration shape.)
With the Pels winning tonight, Lakers fall to the #9 seed while the Pels move to #8.
It was hilarious listening to SVG talk about how the Pelicans have a sneakily easy schedule down the stretch because all the playoff teams they're playing aren't going to be taking the games too seriously...
may you have fish dumped on you from a great height.
Pelicans beat the Nuggets 107-88. Pelicans move to 39-38 while the Nuggets fall to 51-25.
Nuggets have missed 11 FTs and 23 threes tonight. They don't seem to be taking this game seriously.
22-18 fouls; Pelicans-Nuggets
That's a lot of fouls being called in this game....
COME ON YOU NO-JOKIC NUGGS!! They sent you out here to die! Shock the world!
KCP shot 48% threes before the ASB. His three point %age has gone down to 42.5%. MPJ is still shooting at 42.2% threes this season, however.
Pelicans are playing like they are fighting for their lives while the Nuggets don't seem to care. I get that they don't have Jokic and are playing against the Suns tomorrow night in Phoenix, but sheesh. At least put some effort.
I don’t believe in most conspiracy theories, like that the Refs are trying to Get the warriors, etc… but it definitely feels like teams are changing their rest and tanking/trying to try to knock GSW out of #6
Pelicans lead 50-40 against the Jokic-less Nuggets at halftime. Nuggets are taking and missing a bunch of threes tonight (3/19 threes).
OT: Dave Zirin "Edge of Sports" podcast first half of recent episode is "Why the NBA World Lost Its Joy" interesting listen with him chatting with Michael Lee of the Washington Post. They get into the Draymond thing and a lot more.
We have to have one obligatory "Go Denver!", to root for them to beat the Pelicans.
I did not have Boston up 44 in Milwaukee v the full-strength Bucks on my bingo card.
Interesting Bob Meyers at 95.7 The Game
