Post-season just means after the season, doesn’t mean anything about playoffs so I’m just saying, I’m not upset the Bobcats didn’t make it, that’s all I’m saying ok?
I’ve been a little defensive as a fan lately. I mentioned paying off my season tickets with my tax return, which I received in 6 days by the way. My Dad said to me “Wow, that’s a lot of money to see someone lose.” Don’t worry, he meant it as a joke because I had made fun of his awesome turkey neck minutes earlier. Dude is getting old. Mom came to my defense though. “You leave him alone! You know he loves those games and it doesn’t matter if they win or lose! It’s something for him and his friends to do and talk about!”
Thanks Ma! Nothing like you taking up for me to make me feel 9 again! I’m pretty relieved the season is over. The economy is putting a big drag on everyone, buying playoff tickets may have been rough, wanting to go out and have a few brewskis at the game and before/after uptown would have been a bit of a strain….I guess. Really though, I wanted it. I wanted it bad. I wanted to me an official member of the club. In my “nice to know” post I mentioned, now that some hockey team had made the playoffs there was only 2 franchises of all the “Big 4″ leagues to not make the playoffs: Charlotte Bobcats and Houston Texans.
Disappointing but I am trying to stay positive: At least we don’t have this guy anymore: I was joking when we were talking about his firing from the D-League team he was coaching and I said “it’s a long climb but a short fall but it seems like this guy is going to hit every rung on the way down.” He might actually do it. Is he going back to warming the bench for the Celtics and Bulls in another 10 years?
Larry Browns comments in the post-season press conference were nothing special. Except that he and MJ make fun of Okafor for doing yoga and pilates. Also, he sort of said “Hey, what are you going to do?” When asked about Nazr Mohamed’s desire to play or be traded.
Seriously though? What are you going to do with Nazr or Nazr’s contract? The guy did contribute in the games after elimination but they were meaningless games! He’s big, he can sort of handle the ball a little and handle himself and other bigs down on the block but he’s nothing special, in my eyes anyway. Diop can block a shot or seriously alter them on the defensive end and his offensive game needs work but then again, so does Nazr.
