BOOM BABY!!

post #1 of 280

Pacers win Game 1@ NJ 89-83. Didnt have a doubt in my mind they wouldnt win, just like I didnt have a doubt that they wouldnt make the post season. East is wide open just like I said, and this win is huge considering how bad of a team the Nets are on the road. let's hope Conseco is rockin when the boys go back up 2-0.

Early in the game I liked the fact that they were actually running some plays off of screens for Reggie Miller. Jermaine had a monster first half with 24, and ended up with 30 in the game. Dont think they can stop him.

Holla at me Nets.


OH AND MY JAZZ HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN IT! OH YEAH!

Yeah, yeah I know they were under .500 on the road, but Kidd and company really are a great team and I think they could easily win a couple on the road.

Good call Tiger! I've got $10 on the Nets in the series-I should have listened to you in that Mavs thread, I'm sweating now...

I've been thinking and the Nets actually are in trouble. Indiana's gunna slow down the running game like they did yesterday and unless the Nets start shooting better they're screwed.

Sh*t, my Jazz had that too. Scott Padgett should be banned from participating in basketball games.

John Stockton's 3 pt shot before that with 7 seconds was in too....how in the world can that shot not go in. I was having hot flashes of '97 when it left his hands...

Speaking of him, I like how he says that no one on the Nets can beat him in a one on one game. Who cares about a one on one game?

Hmm I havent seen what you are referin to. I think the fact that he totally dominated in game 1 was the reason they got a victory.

I'm concerned about Tinsley being a bit injured, this is the reason he has been on the bench a lot and hasn't been as effective. Ollie has provided solid play off the bench but I'd like to have The Enforcer at full strength on Friday.

I hope Reggie has a huge game. Also, I told some people going to Conseco to wear wife beaters for Ason Kidd (not a typo, he still has no J).

I was really bummed when that happened last year, but I heard the 911 call on the internet, and she didn't seem all that upset. They're still together, too.

Have you ever seen her? :eek:

I'm getting worried about Detroit, I think they've been the best team in the East so far!

There was an article in the NY Daily News about it today.

I've watched the Pistons-Raptors series and yes Detroit has impressed me. I'm definitely more scared of them than anyone else in the East.

Too bad Tinsley didn't win the ROY award.

Gasol On Ice was a near unanimous pick for the award, but the cat has game!

My boy Andrei Kirilenko had some votes.

Well I've got the blue road jersey. I would've gotten the gray but I got it at the Continental Airlines Arena when I went to a Nets game in December (when Kenyon Martin beat up Karl Malone) and the only color they had left was blue. They might've also had white but I've got an old white Marbury jersey so I didn't want another white one.

Yeah, but he really got Malone. Karl was laying on the floor for several minutes and seemed like he was in a lot of pain.

First time in years that I've cared about the NBA playoffs. The Celtics are looking better with every passing game. Funny thing about Boston, though, between the Celts and the Bruins, it's no contest. Boston is a hockey town. With that rich Celtic tradition you wouldn't think so but it's always been that way. Of course, the Red Sox trump everybody. Boston's great place but it sure is a funny town.

So I guess basketball is supposed to be played by beating people up right?

Come back to me in a few years and let's see if you still love the Nets. Better yet, come back to me when they have a losing season. Better yet, come back to me after Game 5.

How many clutch ****ing shots can Reggie make and HE MISSES A ****IN WIDE OPEN SHOT TO WIN! AHHH!!!!

But first of all, why the HELL would you go down to O'Neal when you're down 3 and you have Reggie Miller the best clutch 3 pt shooter of all time? I told you Isiah Thomas is a f8ckiin dumbass.

By the way, no teams that I root for will win. It's a fact.

Alright, we'll see. When MJ and the rest of the crew was still in Chicago I was a big Bulls fan. What kid didn't love Jordan (besides you)? Then once the Bulls got split up and Jordan retired I became a Nets fan. I've been a Nets fan since the lockout shortned '99 season. So I've went through a couple of losing seasons. But whatever, we'll see in a few years.

Exactly. You were a Bulls fan. that tells me enough since now I don't think you'd be seen wearing a Bulls shirt.

Who cares really. The NBA is f*cking rigged as it is and I'm tired of all this BS. I just enjoy watching the teams I love and will continue to love (been a fan of exactly 2 teams all my life and I really dont give a crap about the rest of the teams). It's funny how everyone likes to criticize the players and teams I like because they've never won a championship, yet they love to root for people who are just in it for the money and are criminals.
The Kings are a good team, no doubt. So are the Nets. The Kings haven't played like they deserve to win, yet subconsciously I know the refs/NBA will get them out of the series. Nobody wants to see the "old" and "bad" Jazz with good ole 40 yr old Stockton win a series. I can point to about 100 different examples of why the NBA is a bunch of crap.

If you saw Baron Davis today, wow an incredible shot that definitely should count & the refs say it doesnt. Hmm, could Stern possibly not want to see Charlotte succeed while they are about to be gone?

Give me a break.
