And A Good Evening Boys and Girls,
It’s your midnight blogger here rapping about all things going on on the hardwood. Time is tight, so here are a few quick bytes to chew on before it’s time to call it a night.
Don’t stop the rain Mr Klay T! Boogie Cousins and his royal mates felt the rain inside the coliseum arena on a lovely January night in Oakland. For 12 magical minutes, Thompson staged an exhibition of unconscious shooting mastery the world has never witnessed before. The result: 37 points on 13/13 from the floor with 9 treys. Beyond belief. Sorry Iceman, your record of 33 points has been smashed.
Oh but how nice would it be to see a video of each of The Iceman’s buckets over a smooth live track of Grover Washington Jr’s, “Mister Magic”?
It’s happy times in Warrior Nation right about now. And to the Western Conference coaching All-Star electorate sitting in dark rooms breaking down game tape with a sack of Chicken McNuggets, I think Mr Klay T has made his point. He deserves your vote.
Pack a warm coat for the Big Apple son.
Lebron is Officially Locked and Loaded in Cleveland! Timofey Mozgov and JR Smith to the rescue! Who knew that those words would ever be uttered in any sort of basketball context, but Mozgov and Dirty JR are exactly what LBJ needed to get back to business. He now has a mad shooting assassin a la Vernon Maxwell and big rim protector to play the role that Big Z played in his early days. Look out East.
In Stan Van Gundy We Trust! The amazing resurgence continues ever since Stan the Man put his foot down and cut Josh Smith, his highest paid player. They are now 12-2 since the move and have surged from a horrid 5-23 to 1 game out of a playoff spot. Don’t ever doubt a Van Gundy!
Until next time, this is your Midnight Blogger signing off.
