Zach+Celtics=Love Forever

My friend zfor3 who is a huge Celtic fan wrote this. I found it a good read and pretty much as homer as they get..

I start off by obviously stating that this was single handed the greatest NBA season and post season in recent memory. So many story lines year long... The Boston 3 party, Kobe, Rockets winning 22 straight, the race for the west, Trading deadline moves and all the coaching changes. I loved it..... So to start the summer I leave with you with notes that have nothing to do with anything really, but for some strange reason affects our world.

1) The 2008 Boston Celtics (you knew I would start here!)...The first overhauled team to ever win a championship in the same start.. I can see why KG never advanced in the playoffs before this season and the one with a young Sam Cassell and a Latrell that still had money. He is a pick n pop PF who loves the jump shot and does not have that take over mind set. There were fourth quarters where I forgot he was on the floor..Everyone talks about the signing of the big three, and rightfully so, but what about my 1998 big three signing that was also involved this season, Posey! Brown! Cassell! Sam didn't play much in the finals, but when he did the make-up of the game changed, bigger G who destroyed Fisher in the post causing the Lakers to adjust to a 39 year old alien. I could not be happier for PJ Brown, everything I have heard states that he is a classy guy, and his play was great throughout the post season. His 12pts (6-6 fg) and 7 rebs in 23 minutes against the Cavs in Game 7 will live forever in my house! And then there is my BENCH PLAYER MVP= James Posey! This guy is a joke, he was always on the floor, taked charges, hitting 3's LOCKING up Kobe (Not Jordan, but not quite Harold Miner either) and doing whatever it takes to win. It amazes me that every now and then a player from a small school (Xavier) ala Robert Horry, Bruce Bowen come into this league and CONTRIBUTE to a bunch of NBA titles. My next son will be name PO-Z! Megan may not agree. However, he will live forever in Zach's Celtic lure.

2) Tough to get off the C's, but I will. I have no fear of the Lakers in the future. As long as they have Gasol, there are no worries. C'mon man, are you kidding me. The C's had so little respect for his ability that they put Big Baby on him in a clinching game. He vanished more in the second half than I can constanly remember. H e was awful. And I wanna see a passport on this dude. Did you hear him talk? he sounded like he was from Memphis, not spain! check into that.

3) Back to the C's! Doc Rivers flat out destroyed Phil Jackson. Now I have never been a Jackson fan, I actually think he is a buddhist queer, but we'll talk about that later. He just thought that HIS LAKERS would walk into the house Red built and show up and win. But Doc was prepared man. His small ball line-ups were the difference. I understand that Jordan Farmar has gotten better, no doubt. But why in the hell in game four during the comeback did Fisher sit there the whole time? Jackson was a moron! I have always disliked him and this is another reason why. People put him a this level that he does not deserve. He got it good in this series. DOC! DOC!

last thoughts.... 5) Vinny Del Negro? wow. 4)Bavetta is accused of cheating in the days prior to game 5. then REFS THE DAMN GAME!! 3) If the bulls don't take Rose they're idiots. MB will get that NBA money and end up spending it all on Tattoo's. 2) I hope Gilbert opts out (he did) and then loses his mind and ends up in Europe. what an ass. 1) BREAK UP THE PISTONS! I could say that forever! Sheed is an ass....loser.

Working on audio system & Curry

Alright I know I said I would be back on the 26th with a new audio type blog but I that's been a bit harder then I thought to come by. But I am almost there with it. So please don't leave...

I just wanted to say I was rooting on Davidson the other night. It's to bad they ran the worst play in the history of plays. I would have said the Davidson coach might get a better job but after that play I am not sure if I would want him. Why go away from what got you there? Run Curry off like 5,000 screens pass then shoot or do that and get him the ball where he can score. Great idea going NBA play for your most important moment of the tourney. You haven't ran anything like that all year and then you run it to beat the Jayhawks... You must have been out of your fucking mind. That crap dosn't work in.. Only in the NBA. Also Curry never brings the ball up, he can't create on his own. WHY WHY WHY!! Worst play ever ran.. Offical. That's the only play ran in the NBA unless you are the Lakers. I will post this awful picture of Curry who looks like a a 12 year old boy playing in a ACC game..

Changes coming

Might have noticed I haven't posted in the last 5 days. It's been hard for me to keep up with the writing and life and all that nonsense. I may of come up with an idea to solve this issue. I am kicking around the idea of a total audio blog. I love editing and I like talking much more then writing. In fact I suck at writing. That's might be why my traffic sucks. Stay tuned. First audio tomorrow for sure for sure. I will still write here and there and post pics and vids on the blog.. So I hope you all can stand my voice.

The Picks!

The big day is here.. I think Justin is way wrong with Duke. They are too small and if the shots don't fall they are done. Millard is riding the Gtown train and it might work out for him. Mike is still backing the Tigers... I am the only one that put my balls on the line by picking Kstate to make it. That side of the brackett is fucking hell. I could be the idiot in all this..

Ryan Aylsworth

Let it Start!! Youtubes

Well the Madness is a few days way. I know today is college day but I will have all our(SC staff) final 4 picks on Friday. I must say the Tourney is very tough off this year to fucking figure out. Seems like there is a bunch gimmes every year on who to pick to win in the first round. This year I have so many games that I am just not sure about. I do felt they left the right teams out and no one really got screwed. I am very nervous though about my dark Horse pick, K-State going head to head with USC. I was hoping they wouldn't be higher then 9 seed but they got the 11 seed. That's a damn good 11 seed. I hope they kick OJ Mayo's Holleywood ass. I can't stand that kid or USC. :ike I said I will have all our final 4 picks on Friday. I love March baby.. Lets the Fucking madness Start!

Now on to the Youtube Tuesdays that we have here at SC.

KG before he was the big ticket.

Some more NBA stars in there High school days. Not even fair..

Some Brent Petway dunks...Thats about all he could do.

Jim rome fight!! It's a clssic.

Mail day, Poll

Slow mail.. Not much coming in this week. Come on people! Send me some tough in my face questions.

Hey Ryan,
Nice Blog! What number one seed do you have out first?

I have been "Hate hate hate hate hatin" on Memphis for some time now and you would think I would go with them. But for some reason something it saying jayhawks. Not sure why? They are good. Oh shit I dunno.

Are the Rockets for fucking real? Come on! 22!

Well Z.. At the moment yes. During a 7 games series? I am not so sure. I wouldn't put it past them. I would say sorta for real? That's not a real answer. Hmmm I will go with Yes. That team plays for each other and not the stats. T-mac finally gets it. Maybe a first round win?

We had 10 votes in our Best basketball confrece vote
ACC 2 (20%)

Big East 3 (30%)

Pac 10 1 (10%)

Big Ten 2 (20%)

Big 12 0 (0%)

SEC 2 (20%)

NEC... We got Jokes. 0 (0

So the Big east takes the cake. I tend to agree, plus there is a million fucking teams in the confrece. It's tough to play in. No NEC love... tisk tisk. Big 12 got snubbed too. I really don't like the Big12 unless we are talking Beasley and Kstae. Thanks for voting!
