I agree with Reggie Miller?!?!

Kobe scores 61 pts. vs Knicks

Kobe scores 61 pts. vs Knicks

Let me start off by saying, I hate Reggie Miller as a player.  Every time he played the Celtics I would heckle and despise his every movement.  From his baseline to baseline flops through screens, his cocky attitude and litte prissy ways.  I couldn’t stand the guy.  Every time he touched the ball he got boo’ed but he’d still hit his shots.  In no way would we embrace Reggie Miller in the Garden even today.  Not even if he smacked Bill Lambeer on a TNT broadcast.  Ok, maybe if he smacked Bill Lambeer and Ulf Samuelson, then I would consider an ovation. 
After Monday night’s “MVP” chants in Madison Square Garden by Knicks fans, Reggie supposedly texted back and forth with Spike Lee.  His first text being “Oh how the mighty have fallen.”   He goes on to say he knows he never got cheered there and Jordan probably never got cheered.  Basically saying that Madison Square Garden has lost it’s luster and toughness.  To welcome an outsider like Kobe with an MVP chant after he just threw 61 points on the home team is weak.  Spike Lee went on to say “‘Look, times have changed. The climate has changed.'”

I think Spike is missing the point here.  New York is a tough town!  No one should come in there and get applause like that.  Come on!  I hate New York, I hate it even more now that they cheered for Kobe.  In good or bad days(like the current Knicks times), you have to support your team.  Great performances like Kobe’s on monday warrant boos and silence.  Take a note from your Yankee comrades and leave the game early.  But in no way should you be cheering for a one man team that is Kobe.  I respect him as a player but if he did that in my hometown, I’d be pissed.  That’s why you choose to root for a team like the Knicks(do people still cheer for the Knicks?), for nights when Kobe comes to town and you harass his ass until he flops.  Now replace Kobe with Paul Pierce scoring 61…you still cheering now?  Didn’t think so.  I can’t believe I agree with Reggie Miller.  Now that’s tough to swallow.

NBA News: From Melo’s hand to Antoine canned

Walka Walka Walka!

Walka Walka Walka!

Now let me rant and ramble for a minute about the Celtics potentially getting Stephon Marbury.  After watching the Tony Allen train wreck against the Knicks, I’m up for it.  I’m ready to ride the rollercoaster that is Starbury.  I’ll buy the shirt, the shoes and shave a star into my head.  I miss Manny’s antics so much that I need some instability in my life.  It’s time to see where this ride takes us and who knows, we could actually have a ball handler on the bench besides Rondo.  With more whispers of a buyout from the Knicks, Marbury could sign sooner than later.  Buckle up; he’s putting me in a glass case of emotion.  

Anyways, who knew DUI’s were the new big thing for 09’!

Antoine Walker was arrested and charged early Monday morning in Miami for suspicion of drunk driving.  Apparently he left his lights off in his Mercedes and his eyes appeared bloodshot.  He was also asked to walk the line and in good tickle me Toine’ fashion wiggled his way down. 

Carmelo Anthony should be out for 3-4 weeks with a broken bone in his shooting hand.  Surgery will not be necessary but be sure to bet the under in the next Nuggets game, you’ll thank me later.

Heat released Shaun Livingston, Suns have released Dee Brown, Bucks have requested to put Austin Croshere on waivers and the Clippers waived Fred Jones and Paul Davis.

Tracy McGrady is beating himself up over his lackluster performance to start this NBA season saying “I criticize myself.”  He understands he can play better and looks to push himself through this slump. “In my mind, I think I’m going hard. But physically, I don’t have it.”  I think someone needs to spend a night with Barkley and Antoine. Maybe motorboat and make a few mistakes.  You’re still young!

Lebron James says he will keep the ‘crab dribble’ in his arsenal of moves.  He still believes his move was clean and not a travel in the final seconds of Sunday’s game.  He says he’s not worried if they take that move away, he’ll create something else.  Lebron, I’m just worried about when you travel to places like Indiana. What if you go and mix it up with the wrong crowd and get crabs?  If you do; stay mean, keep it clean and use that powder!
