The Courtship of Eddie’s Jumper

My latest piece on The Examiner

Eddie is 22 of 32 from downtown over his past 4 games.  And that includes a “night off” in Orlando (0 for 3).  Let’s be clear here.  You’re not supposed to shoot 7-11 from three-point land twice in a week.  And you’re definitely not supposed to follow those up with an 8 of 9 night.  That’s the whole reason you get an extra point for standing behind that line.  It’s supposed to be harder.  Not for Eddie.  Not now.

Also out there:  The top 10 selling NBA jerseys include 2 Lakers, 2 Celtics… and Nate Robinson?  CelticsBlog looks at Rondo’s jumper.  And Tony Allen talks about getting winded after starting out great.

  1. Yeah yeah.

    did you hear Lucky got canned?

  2. In regards to the top selling jerseys, it really wouldn’t surprise me if Nate Robinson buys at least 10 of his jerseys a day.

    Like he tries to pawn them off on people as payment for commodities. “How about accepting my jersey as payment?”

  3. Danno, let’s start a rumor that Lucky got canned for banging Celtics dancers…

    Then he’d truly be the coolest mascot ever.

  4. I’m trying to confirm the Lucky canning.

  5. Pau Gasol? Really? Out of all the players in the NBA people want to wear his jersey. I’d rather wear a Kurt Rambis jersey.

  6. John and Chuck – How about a live blog for C’s @ Det tomorrow night?

  7. I don’t know if I’m gonna be home in time to start that up. I might just be rolling up my driveway mid 1st quarter

  8. No problem – If you guys can start one on the 5th vs. Lakers would be nice.
