Random NBA Links & Commentary

The Biedrins-Boozer-Baron Monster

Just some stuff we've liked and some random thoughts:
- SF Gate: Breaking down the many-splendored hairdos from the Warriors-Jazz series; Baron's beard compared to James Garfield, Memo compared to Mr. Big.

- Sports Media Watch: Great site, this particular story is about how TNT's ratings were up through the first round, but ABC/ESPN's were down. Allows me the moment to offer these two thoughts: 1) man, the decibel meter is Oakland was annoying and dopey - classic NBA on ABC/ESPN stuff, and 2) I can't believe they couldn't find anyone other than Jon Barry to call the primetime Spurs-Suns game last Saturday.

- Sports Media Watch: Another story from SMW from yesterday, about how strong the Jazz-Warriors ratings have been. More proof that California is where the heart of NBA support really is.

- Get Garnett: What a fantastic site, devoted to imploring the Lakers to acquire KG. The incomparable Larry Coon of Salary Cap FAQ fame breaks down what potential trades would look like, given salary cap rules.

- You know, I can deal with Reggie Miller on games, but I just can't deal with Reggie *and* Dick Stockton together (aka Team Malaprop). I loved the game last week where Reggie spent all game referring to referee Joe DeRosa as Joe Dellarossa.

- I love TNT's coverage in general, and Marv & Steve are the best team going, but are you really telling me - that with the entire universe of NBA play-by-play men out these - TNT couldn't come up with anything better than Dick Stockton and Matt Devlin as its No. 3 and No. 4 playoff men? Al Albert, as prepared and professional as his brother, and Kevin Calabro of the Sonics, even though he overtalks on TV after too many years of radio simulcasts, would have been two good places to start.

- I really thought that officials Bennett Salvatore and Kenny Mauer were awful in Game 5 of the Warriors-Jazz series, as they usually are, just wildly inconsistent throughout. How many games do these guys have to screw up before they stop getting high-profile playoff assignments???

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
