Another Kick In The Sack

Spurs Champions

So here we are again. 

The Spurs are champions.  Woo friggin’ hoo.

Tim Duncan has 4 rings.  He’s 4 for 4 in the Finals. 

He could have been a Celtic.  We did tank a season for him after all.  But it didn’t work out for us.  Now he’s got a 4th ring and we’re on our 4th rebuilding plan (or is it the 5th?  6th?). 

I know what you’re saying…

“Hey John… this sounds like you’re giving the finger to the people who were all about tanking this season so we could get Greg Oden.”

Yeah… it does, doesn’t it?

Spurs In 6
June 13, 2007

Bang… there’s an official predicition right off the bat. No teasing you… no games…. Boom. Spurs in 6. Hell… it was going to be Spurs in 5… but I gave the Cavs an extra game because of this dumb 2-3-2 format. Now that that is out of the way….

Corey Brewer and Al Thornton will be in town today to work out for the Celtics. is expected to have video and interviews from those guys sometime this evening… so be sure to come back later for that.

Local boy David Blatt apparently won’t be joining the Celtics after all.

I love that picture. It looks like something a parent uses to carry a baby around… which is about how careful Tony needs to be with that knee of his. Tony says it’s going well, and that he’ll be ready to join his teammates for training camp. I don’t know if you guys understand how amazing that would be. Then again… Shaun Livingston damn near tore his leg in half and he’s apparently playing in charity softball games.

From Draft Express: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported yesterday that the Atlanta Hawks headed to Los Angeles to take in a workout featuring Yi Jianlian. We’ve learned that Danny Ainge of the Boston Celtics was present for an identical one-on-none workout the day before.

And man am I glad this F’ing mess is over. Billy Donovan is, in fact, officially no longer with the Magic. Yesterday’s news conference turned into a whole lot of waiting for a statement to be released. And after all that, Stan Van Gundy told the Kings no…. and he’ll coach Orlando after all… and Miami will get a second round pick for it. His mustache is still a candidate in Sacramento.

Ready for rumors?

Don’t say I didn’t tell you that Seattle is about to get REALLY good. How about Chris Paul to the Sonics? | Blazers looking to trade up for Thornton | You won’t see a blockbuster trade with the Bulls unitl AFTER the trade. | Is Jordan killing the Bobcats by only hiring his friends?
