The Lakers suck, the Lakers suck. It just sounds so good. The best part is the storied franchise of the Lakers is now no different than anyone else; they have quit at the end of the year also. This is an infliction that is supposed to only impact the Hawks and the Clippers of the world now the Lakers are doing it also. I love it …….. The hot team in the NBA is changing week by week and it is all based on health …. It was the Spurs then Duncan got hurt, then it was the Rockets and the injury to Juwan Howard is limiting them significantly and now the hot teams are the Mavericks and the Nuggets. It is because they are the only teams that are healthy.
Saturday the Sonics face George Karl’s Nuggets and you will shocked when you watch the Nugs. George’s offense is everything he hates about the NBA. They send one to one side and all 4 to the other and the one backs his way into the basket and then all of a sudden the four guys break off into routes and the possessions maybe has one or two passes. So much for North Carolina basketball. But you do what you have to win and George is certainly doing that.
From the Sonics standpoint this is the best time of the year to have the injuries. If this team had been hit like this in the middle of the year they could have lost their confidence. Instead, they have been able to win games all season, because they thought they were supposed to. THINK ABOUT THIS – THE SONICS WILL WIN THE NORTHWEST DIVISON TONIGHT. That was the most absurd thought in the world to start the season. This should really be a day of amazing celebration for Sonics fans. For Coach Nate to take this group to 50+ wins and a division title in a division with Minnesota, Denver and Utah all teams expected to be great is really remarkable. That is why Nate should be the coach of the year. Enjoy this win tonight over the hapless Lakers and while it may have felt anti-climatic enjoy the division title it is an awesome accomplishment.

Let me tell you something. It feels so good to see the Lakers suck. Their arrogant fans, their arrogant players, and that arrogant franchise deserve what they are getting for sure. It feels great.

I got to see the Nuggets play the Timberwolves Friday night on ESPN. The Nuggets look very good. They beat the crap out of the Timberwolves Friday night at Minneapolis. George Karl has them playing at a high level. He has gotten the most out of his players especially Andre Miller and Kenyon Martin. Miller is playing his best basketball right now. He is very assertive and he is attacking the rim like you saw Friday night. Kenyon Martin is starting to get the ally-oop dunks and etc. He is starting to be Kenyon after struggling the first few months. It's just unfortuante that this team did not came to play this year under Jeff Bzdelik as he was fired in the process. I think Denver can win a first round series if they can avoid San Antonio or Phoenix. If they play Seattle, they will beat Seattle since they matchup much better
