10 Questions: 'The Post-2009 NBA Finals Edition'
*Dwight Howard should be banned from wearing capes and calling himself "Superman" if he's going to play like Wonder Woman in the post. He's got to develop a low post/back to the basket up and under game before he should look to jump in a phone book to change. How can you not man up and steal more than a game to be considered the man of steel?
*President Obama picked the Lakers, Steelers and Tar Heels all to win it all this year. Right, Left or Center you have to respect this man's gangster when it comes to getting it done in predicting winners in sports. Has he bet on winners with Chrystler, Arlen Spector and the Arab World during his trip last month?
*Shaq twittered after the game: THE_REAL_SHAQ: Congrats to you to phil jackson. When the general doesn't panic the troops don't panic. You are the greatest now. and also Congratualtions kobe, u deserve it. You played great . Enjoy it my man enjoy it. And I know what yur sayin rt now "Shaq how my ass taste ". LOL, will this guy ever pass up an opportunity to put his face in the spotlight?
*Tip your hat to the Lakers and Kobe but you have to wonder if this team had the easiest route to the trophy in perhaps NBA history (a heartless Jazz squad, a T-Mac and Yao-less Rockets team and an Orlando team that had no business being in the Finals in the first place other than being the best of what was left in the Eastern conference considering everybody wasn't at full strength)?
*Does this well written article make you at least wonder just how much greater Kobe's teammates are to LeBron's? Even if you hadn't believed so before reading it?
*Even though he is the Master of Panic and the wrong guy to have at the helm, isn't it fun to watch Stan Van Gundy?
*Has Rashard Lewis surpassed Juwan Howard with the biggest joke of a contract in NBA history (118 mill/6 years)?
*If Shaq ended up being traded to Cleveland and playing with LeBron, can Phil be tempted to coach there? Is it possible for Shaq to go to the Finals with Penny, Kobe, Wade and James?
*How crazy is it that over the last 30 years only eight NBA teams have won the championship?
*Does four and a half months seem as far away to you as it does to me until the next NBA game? :(
