It was interesting to see Larry Brown sign
on with the 76'ers as an advisor a couple of
years back. Iverson got traded and the team
was a disaster, so the writing seemed to be
on the wall that his return to the bench was
inevitable. What I don't think he expected
was a great job by Maurice Cheeks, a very
good season overall by the team , and a first
round game one road win in Detroit.
So of course, yesterday he resigned to pursue
another coaching job...... Surprise, Surprise
If Tracy McGrady and the Houston Rockets
don't make it out of the first round again this
year, I don't think trading him is such a bad
idea. Problem is his trade value should skydive,
unless your a team who just wants to win some
more regular season games for a change.
The Washington Wizards response to being blown
out by the Cavaliers in game two 116-86 was a good
one. They blew them out in game three 108-72.
Nice Job ! Game four ought to be interesting.
WAIT! Did Joba just lose a game????????
Someone ought to tell the NY Post that Jake Long
isn't Chris Long and vice versa, as the captioning
in their paper on Friday would have you believe.
Three 1st baseman that once struck fear into the
hearts of every pitcher alive have taken huge falls
from grace. Carlos Delgado is now below the
.200 mark with 1 HR, Frank Thomas was released
this weak after a huge slump, and Jason Giambi's
only extra base hits this year have come against
Mike Timlim. I guess it's time for a new crop.
