December's Been Great. And Now Look At This:
Yea, that's Robert Swift out there dunkin'. I gotta fix that title: December's been G-R-E-A-T! Those faces of Amare & Shaq are priceless. It's like, gee, Jesus Christ came back to play hoops?
p.s.: Keep this particular [Spurs] game in mind as the season progresses. While the too-cocky Lakers occasionally lose games they should win, the Spurs win several games that they could easily lose. However their season eventually plays out, for the tough, resourceful, courageous Spurs, no excuses will ever be necessary. (-Charley Rosen)
p.s.2: Jamaal Tinsley is so toxic that he's been quarantined. (-Charley Rosen)
p.s.3: There aren't many growth industries in our current economic state, but apparently "interim NBA head coach" is one of them. (-Tim Keown)
p.s.4: I once heard a story that Dwyane Wade set the unofficial U.S. record for longest time to produce a urine sample - almost four hours! - at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. (-Chris Sheridan)
p.s.5: *I did nothing to earn my money. They [the players] coached. They communicated. They changed defenses, called plays. I just substituted players,* said Gregg Popovich after his team's 101-85 win over the Kings.
p.s.6: Other than Gregg Popovich's snow-white beard, the closest thing to Santa in those parts [Arizona] will be Shaq, so chubby and plump that neither reindeer nor elf would feel comfortable around him at mealtime. (-Richard Oliver)
p.s.7: I'm guessing Scotty Brooks [OKC head coach, I know you definitely didn't know this fact] will happily endure all of these cracks about being the winningest coach in Thunder history - at 2-13 - if it means less talk about how his kiddies are still stuck on a dreaded 9-73 pace. (-Marc Stein)
p.s.8: [T-Wolves H.C.] Kevin McHale said he is especially impressed with Duncan's efficiency on the court. *He doesn't move around a lot. He's very efficient. Conversely, our young guys move around like chickens with their heads cut off and don't get much accomplished. Then, they don't understand why they're tired and Tim is not.*
