And odd feeling, isn’t it, fans?
These are strange and, I bet, enjoyable times all around.
And there was this:
A game evolves
First, he drove, made his typical spin move and found a second defender waiting for him. Last year, he likely would have forced the issue and tried to bull his way to the basket, last night he made a quick and decisive pass to Lowry, who made an open three.
A couple of minutes later, he got in a pick and roll with Bismack Biyombo and when the defender was a bit slow to react, DeRozan made a great pass to a wide open Biyombo who got to the rim, was fouled and went to the line.
That kind of awareness has made DeRozan doubly dangerous and far more effective with the ball in his hands.
Try and try again
Luis Scola did not enjoy one of his finest offensive games and it began particularly gruesomely.
But, because we all know you’re either hot or you’re due and you should shoot ‘til you make or shoot ‘til you miss, he fired away right before the halftime buzzer and made a three like nobody’s business.
Is it almost time?
To pronounce Terrence Ross “there” yet?
Another solid, solid game from him, very assertive on offence (he drove the ball at times which is and of itself newsworthy) and his 15 points off the bench were a continuation of the roll he’s been on for 10 days or so.
And this shows what kind of rhythm shooter he has to be:
With no one around, he glanced up, took an extra dribble, lined it up and missed.
Now, trust me when I say I’m not entirely sure what a hashtag on the tweeter machine exactly is or what it means or why people use them.
But today, it’s all about #BellLetsTalk because of all the good and important awareness programs out there, the mental health one is tremendously important to me and this is a very significant program.
I know and have known people who’ve struggled with depression, a few who tragically did not get help in time or maybe who didn’t recognize the illness. This one hits home and you should help if you can.
Here’s a thing I learned yesterday; two, actually.
There are such thing as dog ophthalmologists – that’s humans who deal with animals; not, as the Great Griff thought, dogs who examine our eyes even if that would be the coolest thing ever – and said canine ophthalmologists must be among the best compensated physicians in the animal world because Super Dog has some issues and I need some freelance work it appears.
Okay, I won’t harp on this any more because the next time we’re here it will be over but if you’re looking for something to do tonight, you could do an awful lot worse than to stop by the Firkin on King and listen to a bunch of us tell stories at another edition of Hoop Talks Live.
It’s a lot of fun and, frankly, it’s got stools and tales and Jack and what’s better than that?
I’ve a big fan of John Honderich for a lot of reasons.
This kind of thing shows why.
A very large, very strong professional athlete hit someone he professes to be a friend hard enough and repeatedly enough to break his hand and he needs to be taken to task not only by the league but by his team.
I get that athletes are humans and prone to the mistakes we all made, especially in our youthful exuberance but athletes need to conduct themselves in a certain manner and getting into bar fight with anyone isn’t one of them.
They have too many people – teammates, coaches, bosses, other team employees – relying on them and it’s totally fair to expect them to conduct themselves in a manner that tries to assure they won’t let everyone down.
There is no denying the stupidity of Griffin’s actions at a handful of levels; I’d like to think others will learn from it but this is not my first rodeo and I can guarantee you we’ll be saying much the same things about someone else in the not too distant future.
Oh yeah, one last one.
I could really use some mail over at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t mind.
