Hump Day Wednesday Let’s Have Some Fun With A Caption Contest ……………… !

Well it’s Wednesday and it’s hump day but two days left ’til the weekend. It’s safe to say this juncture that two of the four playoffs series in the conference semi-finals of the NBA are all but over ! Pardon me for say this but the level of resistance being put up by the Atlanta Hawks against the Orlando Magic is somewhat reminiscent of some of the females I’ve known in my youth. Often known as the girls who’d be willing to do absolutely anything just to please a guy. It appears that it’s the same way with the Hawks ! I’m not saying that they’ve given up but they (Hawks) make the French military seem like venerable heroes ! The Orlando Magic are “puttin’ a can of whup a_s” on this Mike Woodson coached Hawks’ team ! Sportschump please accept my profound apologies but sir, you are absolutely right this Hawks’ team are about as scary as being confronted by Ricky Martin in a biker bar filled with heterosexuals males . The bikers in the bar mightn’t feel all that comfortable and are probably wanting to kick Ricky’s a_s. But given the fact that Ricky may well be into sado-masochism , I’m not so sure that he might not be entertained by the idea of having his a_s beaten to a pulp by some male bikers.

The way that the Hawks are now playing I expect Stan Van Gundy and the Magic to lay waste to Phillips Arena and close out the series with surgical precision. The Hawks might just be the worse #3 seeds ever to be represented in the Eastern Conference of the NBA Playoffs ! Game 1 and the 114-71 rout of the Hawks signifies that the Magic are in the driver’s seat for the remainder of this series .

Personally I’ve to empathize with the Utah Jazz‘s Jerry Sloan . One of the nicest guys ever to have graced the game. But unfortunately for him he is coaching in the era of Jordan , Phil Jackson , Kobe Bryant and Gregg Popovich . And because of that quartet it is unlikely that he’ll ever win an NBA title as a coach.

For the third consecutive season Sloan’s Jazz have had to face the Los Angeles Lakers in the postseason. And no matter how you try to spin it the outcome becomes inevitably the same . It’s as if it’s deja-vu repeatedly for the Jazz. For Jazz point guard Deron Williams , he may well have felt that he didn’t sign on for this but it may well be for the moment the best that he can expect for the time being.If Kobe Bryant is on the opposing end of the court, then for now it’s Kobe’s world , Williams and his teammates are merely guests at the dining table. But unfortunately for them , they are not only the entree but they’re also the main course and dessert at the end of the meal. Whoop , there it is !

The Utah Jazz are already down 0-2 in this series and after last night’s 111-103 loss to their Western Conference rivals. I think we’re now getting the distinct feeling that there’s not much that can derail the Lakers’ freight train as they “march inevitably on” to the NBA Finals. The victors of the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs series are the only ones who now stand in the Lakers’ way as the conference representative in the championship game . Make of it what you will but please do enjoy.

  1. Man, the Hawks looked terrible yesterday. I thought they’d lose, but not like that! They didn’t even show up. It’s a shame, because I thought they had a shot at doing well this year.

    Poor Sloan, he just can’t beat Phil! I think they might make this series go to six, but the Lakers will win no matter how much I root against them, that’s just what they do…

      There’s a lot to admire ’bout this Hawks’ team. Horford and Josh Smith in particular. Joe Johnson is “no leader” and he simply gives up when things aren’t going right for him or his teammates . But as of now they’re running on empty as in merely the fumes. The Magic are gonna sweep ’em if they are not careful.

      Nicole ‘Coco’ Austin. Is it any wonder Ice T makes sure she’s get a whole load of the “dark meat” ?

      As for Jerry Sloan , unfortunately for him Stern doesn’t allow do-overs in the NBA . Not unless Kobe or LeBron are having an off-day ! LOL,LOL,LOL !!! And that’ll be the only time wherein the rules will be bent in their favor.

      Jaime Pressly looks so hot !

      The more I watch the Magic the more impressed I’ve become by them. They’re playing at a high level of consistency and to my mind the most impressive part has been the play of their bench

      Do you think that Tess Taylor Arlington will be the Playmate of the month for May ? I wanna hear your thoughts on the matter !

  2. As a Magic fan, Al, I’m ecstatic with the team from top to bottom.

    Clearly, they’re make the right decisions, bold ones too, to put a winning team on the floor.

    Bringing in Carter was a risk but I think it will pay off.

    Let’s do this thing!

      There’s no denying that GM Otis Smith knew it was a risk bringing in Vince Carter .

      GM Otis Smith and Dwight Howard .

      But if anything it’s rejuvenated the player and made the team all the more balanced. As I suggested in an earlier comment it’s their bench that has really impressed me with their play and depth . Of the teams left in the postseason the Magic may well have the deepest and best bench of all the teams !

      Vince running the floor as only he can.

      How crazy is it that while Vince’s career has gone back on track his cousin Tracy McGrady‘s has plunged off an abyss and into obscurity ? Not quite a paradigm but think about it ?
