I'm right here boys
There hasnt been much to post on recently so I've just been lurking around.
Who are you guys rooting for this year in the playoffs?
I'll be rooting for the former Nets (VC, Kidd, and RJ), mostly Magic.
well, try to add some bball commentary from time to time, sir. it gets lonely in net-land.
me, mostly kidd and the mavs. but realistically, hoping that VC and the magic can find a way to knock off the cavs and go all the way. also, been pretty impressed by how well kmart has been playing this season...
side note: it's been a horrible playoffs for former nets stars.
kidd, kmart, RJ and carter have all played like crap. at least kidd and martin had excuses, though- kidd was sick and kmart was coming back from injury.
and yes, the magic have a small chance to pull out the series against the celts, but what part has vince carter played in the affair? after decent series against the bobcats and hawks (but nothing all that impressive, really), he's absolutely s**t the bed against the celts. and that's not why the magic went out and got him.
It's sad. I'm glad VC, Martin, Jefferson, and Kidd were all in good situations.
None of them went far though. Excluding Carter... But he hasn't done much. Well, at least he isnt our problem anymore.
In defense of Vince, hes been attacking, just shots aren't falling. I think the Game 1, he was very efficient and was pretty much the only Magic player to show up. Game 2, he also did well but he did clank those 2 free throws in the clutch. The rest of the games, the box score makes him look like hes playing like horse crap but I think hes doing everything he can do. Hes trying to get to the free throw line. People are questioning his heart and will to win again (which is a topic that never goes away for him), but hes really doing everything he can. Hes not the same Vince Carter that we saw mash on people almost every game.
One thing that is disappointing though (besides the choke at the FT line) is his defense. I've always seen Vince as a underrated man-to-man defender, someone that doesn't get enough credit. His defense on Paul Pierce is atrocious. Hes getting blown by pretty much every possession.
