Actually, for those of you who work in businesses dependent on the stock market or religiously inclined to give you Good Friday off, it may technically be Friday. (This would include both CuteSports’s and my significant others, but we are not bitter at about it at all, nope.) Anyway, I had planned to write about actually watching all three NBA playoff games yesterday, but I am struggling to form coherent sentences at this point, and all I can really remember about yesterday’s games is thinking the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka needed to be on this blog. So, here you go:
I almost didn’t make it to Wednesday’s Knicks-Hornets game. First, I had it down on my calendar for Thursday. Then there was the massive sinus attack that had me spending most of Wednesday afternoon lying flat on my back to keep my head from spinning. At 5:30, I was convinced my immune system had betrayed me. Luckily, the decongestant finally kicked in about half an hour later and I began to feel, if not perfectly healthy, at least capable of sitting upright and watching basketball for a few hours.

The Knicks finally got Anthony; Anthony finally got the Knicks. But it didn’t come without one of the more complicated trade deals that I think I’ve seen. I reckon this trade might actually get me in to basketball – more on the gains and losses after the break…
Unlike my girl Diana, this is not the sweetest hangover – this is the WORST kind of hangover!
It’s not brought on by copious amounts of Yuengling and Makers Mark.
It’s not accompanied by the Stride of Pride.
It’s not cured by greasy food.
It’s not something that gets worse with age.
It’s a hangover that only comes with the harsh realization… football is OVER until Fall. Continue reading
We had our first big NBA trade this week, so since cutie Sasha Vujacic has to give up the Lakers and sunny LA for moribund (and currently freezing) New Jersey, I thought I’d give him the consolation prize of being ACoH.
Surprise, surprise. On the heels of the big 116-99 win against the Toronto Raptors tonight after the fifth of the candles on the menorah burned out, we bring you my newest favorite Jewish player in the NBA – NY Knicks’ star forward Amar’e Stoudemire.
Turning to the NBA’s first Israeli player, share a latke with the hottie for night 3: Omri Casspi.
