Well another great playoff game tonight with a close finish. This time it was Carmelo and company stealing a game from Kobe's Lakers. I could sit here and report the score of this game but you can check all that out on ESPN. Instead I want to touch one a few things I realized during and after this game.
First of all, Kenyon Martin gets on my nerves. Seriously, was there really any reason for you to take a swipe at Trevor Ariza's body like that? For that matter was there any reason you had to have a pair of lips tattooed on your neck? Classy. I'll give you credit though, at least your f-bomb to point ratio these past two games has been closer than it was all of last series against the Mavs. I think I might actually side with Mark Cuban on this one now.
Next point I want to talk about is how terrible the Nuggets' away jersies are. It looks like a rip off of the San Diego Chargers' alternate jersies only they come off more gay. I don't mean to use the word "gay" in an offensive way toward anyone but it's the only term I could come up with to describe these metalic powder blue jersies. It's kind of like trying to explain a man wearing a fanny pack to someone, what else can you say other than it's kind of gay?
The last point I want to bring up from tonight's game is Stuart Scott being the most played out analyst in the history of analysts. Come on Stuart, it's 2009. Saying something is "cooler than the other side of the pillow" hasn't been "cool" since the Smashing Pumpkins were cranking out hit after hit in the 90's. You honestly make Wilbon look hip and thats not an easy task. (I actually dig Wilbon) You are now in your mid forties, it's time to adapt your commentary to match your age. Ah, who are we kidding? I shouldn't expect much from a North Carolina graduate.
