Gee, what a shame. The the Heat lose their opener to the Celtics (and I'm not even a Celtics fan) :P .

I watched part of the game and the biggest surprise was seeing Shaquille O'Neal play for the Celtics. Where the hell was I when that happened? I only remember news about LeBron James leaving Cleveland, but I don't remember anything about O'Neal leaving, too.

Lebron has no post-up game with his back to the basket. His few efforts in the low post were laughable. I guess he's never had to do that before in his career.

The Diesel looked surprisingly game, and his presence definitely frees up Garnett to roam outside the paint. He did settle for lay-ups (some of which missed badly) when he would've dunked the ball a few years back.

The 8 year old boy who lives next door to me could whip Shaq's ass in a free throw shooting contest.

I think they still have a lot of work to do, but was just pleased as punch that the Celts won the first NBA game of the season. :)

well, i guess the heat are only going to win 81 games this season.

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

 

current restaurant review: kinjiro (los angeles)

 

current whisky review: old grand-dad 114

 

current recipe: meatball curry, kerala style

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

The Lakers won after receiving these incredibly gaudy rings that Phil jokingly called "unwearable."

LeBron's homecoming.. Most ruthless sign I've seen: "Like Father. Like Son." Ouch.

Los Lakers lost a close one to Le Heat, but Kobe took some shit shots (yeah, he's a hero if they go in, but come on). Will this truly be Phil's last year?

After going 17-1, the Lakers stunk up Staples tonight and lost their second home game in a row--to the Jazz. WTF?

My Celtics have got my nails chewed down to the quick. I know Danny Ainge was thinking long-term in his trading activities, but it sure left things cold for the rest of this season. <_<

He's also had bad luck with injuries. But he does get paid the big bucks.

It seems to me like everyone has been hit with injuries this season. Is basketball getting rougher or are the players getting softer?

Remember when he bit that guy's ear? Shocking behaviour for a Celtics player, but I loved him, anyway.

Maybe both.

He was a hungry ball player.
