Take your Pick

Posted by mvetack on November 21, 2009

Here is a look at the new proposed mural to replace the “We are all Witness” (scroll down) mural currently up in down town Cleveland. The new proposed mural reads “Prepare for Combat”. The Cavs have rejected the new mural saying it needs to have more to do with the Cavaliers (currently no indication of who Lebron is playing for) and less warlike.

Which do you choose?

New “Warrior” Lebron

Classic “Witness” Lebron

credit “Ball Dont Lie” for reference to story

The 3 Ball, a comebacks sidekick

Watch any college basketball game and you will realize how big the three ball is. A twenty point underdog can hang with the best of the best if they rain threes all game. Some of these kids playing today get scholarships purely for their 3 point shooting ability. In the NBA it is tough to survive in the league with only one skill (see Redick college and Redick NBA). No matter how far out the NCAA moves back the line, every underdog will still throw up a quarter of a 100 of them through out the game.

The most common time to see the three ball attempted is in comeback attempts. We saw it last night in the Carolina Ohio State game. North Carolina lead most of the way by a 15ish point margin. Ohio State was struggling from everywhere especially from beyond the arc. In the last ten minutes they caught fire and began slowly getting back into the game by draining some rainmakers. Eventually the lead was cut to 3 but UNC was able to knock down a couple key free throws to fend off the feisty Buckeyes.

If the three ball is falling the game is never over.

Play of the Week

Posted by mvetack on November 21, 2009

Richard Jefferson flying high on Oden and the Blazers. Bill Walton would be proud.

Besides the obvious power and beauty of RJ’s soon to be released poster, Oden gets credit here for not going for the block. In the past Oden plays defense like the fouls are turned off in a video game. Going for the big swat no matter the situation. Oden made a smart play. Gave up the 2 points rather than kill his own minutes by getting a dumb foul.

Tonight’s Pick

Posted by mvetack on November 20, 2009

Sacramento Kings +10.5 AT Dallas Mavericks

Dirk
Nowitzki is playing out of his mind lately and I don’t see the 5 and 5 Kings slowing him down. Although the Kings are playing pretty good without all star Kevin Martin, I don’t like their chances against Jason Terry and Dirk in Dallas on a Friday night, even with the 10.5. This is Dirks league right now so I’m not about to pick against him.

Dallas over Kings – Scuttlebutt record (3-3)
last pick Panthers -3.5 over Dolphins resulted in an L with the Dolphins winning the game 24 – 17.
