Have you guys seen this?
James Harden Fans wearing beards during the game. Boy, that’s dedication right there. Too bad the Heat have got this!
(Now I’m off to work~)
I’m happy that Derek Fisher is not only getting playing time in Oklahoma but that he’s actually adjusting well.
Not only did he make a buzzer beater today right at the end of the first quarter,
he also made a sweet 3 pointer in the 4th quarter.
He’s made 5 out of 6 shots and 1 out of 2 3 pointers.
Another sweet win for the Thunder.
SUCK ON THAT DIRK NOWITZSKI!
I’m glad Fisher will be with the Thunder and not the Rockets. I can keep an eye on him while I make sure Durant and Westbrook are doing well. Mark said I sound like a mom…I guess I do sometimes huh?
Wouldn’t it be a trip if Fisher got his next ring before Kobe did? Hahaha. I’d LOVE to see that. Yes I love the Lakers but Fisher was my favorite player so I’ll support him wherever he goes. I can wear my OKC Fisher jersey over my Lakers one. Hahaha.
The new number he picked is his age…37. How cute. Awww! My children are all grown up now!
Maybe I SHOULD go to that Lakers vs Thunders game coming up…hmmmm
Let’s see what my paycheck says. Well. I guess I could since I finished school and what not but I always feel awkward going to games where I like both teams. I can’t be myself. I rather stick to a Clippers vs Thunder game. UGH I WENT TO ONE EARLIER THIS SEASON AND THE THUNDER LOST! No one talked shit to me that time though.
Overall…(most times) Clippers fans are nicer than Lakers fans. Except for that one time last week when I went to go see Josh Smith and TMac play. How could you hit on me after you talk smack to me all game long? Forget you. Hahaha.
Yay Fisher! I am so happy for you!
Well the Thunder BETTER beat the Clippers tonight!
What? Foye’s dropping points? Man…that’s whack.
Two big games to look forward to today!
Lakers vs Thunder
Knicks vs Heat
West vs West & East vs East. You’re not going to want to miss this!
Starting off with the Lakers vs Thunder, the clash of talent between old and new will be a great show. And since it’s right before the All Stars it’s a great chance to see how the teams play against each other. Tonight’s game will show if they are pumped up and ready to go at it with the East! 2 All Stars against 2 All Stars. They can also use today to size each other up, understand how each player moves and operates, how to best support each other. For those of you who didn’t know this is the first game of the season in which these two will be going head to head. Strange isn’t it? Since some teams have already gone up against each other anywhere from 3-4 times. This season’s a bit off but it makes it that much more intense and nerve wracking to watch and follow. Both the Lakers and the Thunder have won their last game up to this one so you know that they’re in it to win it! Being the #1 & #5 team on the Western Conference this also gives us an inside look as to what the Playoffs MIGHT look like. There’s still a lot of time for a shift in rank but when you think of the possibility of these two teams competing again when the time comes, it’s more likely than not so both teams could learn a lot from today.
So what needs to happen today for the Lakers to win? Kobe is going to need to put aside all of the trade drama bullshit and get back to playing a GOOD game. For the leading scorer in the NBA, Kobe tanked last night with 15 points. I was actually afraid that we might lose to Dallas. How unsettling is that? Me constantly checking the Ipad at work talking to myself about the game while I make drinks for customers. Most of them must have thought I was crazy. Gasol, on the other hand, is playing better than ever. Do you know why? Because he plays TO FUCKIN PLAY. I’ll forgive the 5 Turnovers he had last night because Kobe had 7. 7!?! Do you believe that? Thank God Bynum and Fisher stepped up yesterday.
The Lakers also need to be on top of Durant and Westbrook. Well, not literally but enough so they aren’t able to shoot. We can’t have them scoring like they have been if the Lakers want to win. Hayward and Collison may still be out from todays game so that’ll work to our advantage. And they need to watch out for Perkins when he’s on the floor. He’s been having a high number of rebounds every night and the one thing the Lakers do not need is Perkins being there to rebound every ball be it offensive or defensive. And we need to not play Ron Artest and just trade him somewhere. I’m sorry. And the only thing with playing Barnes or Morris is that they play well when it comes down to it but they get WAY too many Personal Fouls for comfort with the short amount of time they’re on the court. Just saying.
Maybe I’ll write about the Heats vs Knicks game later…I feel like that’s the one game everyone is already focusing on anyways. OMG A JEREMY LIN ROOKIE CARD THAT SOMEONE BOUGHT FOR $1000 SOLD FOR $21,800. FUCK people are crazy.

(They were playing the Nuggets yesterday, not the Warriots, btw).
What an INTENSE game yesterday between the Thunder and the Nuggets. The Nuggets were ahead by 5 until half time and by the end of the 3rd quarter the Thunder had caught up but who would’ve thought the scores would be so evenly matched throughout the whole game! Game went into overtime where the Thunder dominated the court by scoring 13 points compared to the Nuggets 7. But that’s not why I’m writing this blog entry.
Yeah, it’s true. I wrote a whole blog entry about how Carmelo needs to share if he wants “in” on the Linsanity but FUCK, Durant and Westbrook don’t EVER have to share and they’d STILL win!
Kevin Durant ended up scoring 51 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals. 51 points!
Russel Westbrook had 40 points, 4 rebounds and 9 assists. 40 freakin points!
Serge Ibaka totally laid it on too! 14 points, 15 rebounds and 11 blocked shots!
The highest scorer on the Nuggets was Afflalo with 27 points.
The Nuggets were struggling with their FGM-A scores. Afflalo only made 10-21, Brewer was 5-14, Lawson did a bit better with 8-17.
The Nuggets need a new star! Maybe they can take Carmelo back. I don’t know if the Knicks need him anymore.
