CUBAN CLAIMS CONSPIRACY

0

A fine piece of writing in the Miami Herald details how the Mavs came unhinged during and after their game 5 loss to the Heat. But is it truthful?

There was Cuban, whose billions can buy just about anything but a mortal slump by D-Wade, careening onto the court in a blue Jerry Stackhouse jersey after the final buzzer, screaming profanely at referee Joe DeRosa.

Cuban then turned to Stern and other NBA officials who were seated at the scorer’s table and was overheard to shout venomously in the jubilant din, “[Bleep] you! [Bleep] you! Your league is rigged!”

Cuban responds on his blog:

Apparently the Miami Herald is reporting i screamed at the NBA comissioner after the game the other night. Didnt happen. Didnt say a word to the man. Not a single word. And that was absolutely by intention.

Apparently this “reporter” has written he has several “sources”. Well they must be the same sources the tabloids use to find two headed babys and aliens, because it didnt happen.

Cuban also blogs about past occurrences with the Miami Herald. Good stuff. I’m looking forward to Game 6 tonight.

    I did laugh out loud when, upon turning the Cub game on in the car yesterday, the first thing I heard was Pat Hughes saying, “…the nightmare continues…” and Santo groaning. Then he named the players who had already homered and the 6-0 scored. And I laughed again. Give the Cubs this much–they know how to do bad, they really commit and go all the way with it. Hell, it’s almost as fun and interesting as when they win.

    I disagree on the Bulls picks–I would love to see Brandon Roy, who might be the surest thing in the draft. A big guard who can defend at that position is also a need. I would take Roy over Thomas, who strikes me as more athlete than player, a kind of Tyson Chandler Jr. I do like Aldridge, but I expect he’ll be taken first; would be a tough call for me between Roy and Aldridge

    I think Toronto will take Morrison. The Bulls would then get Aldridge. He’s hardly a Tyson Jr. He’s bigger and he has real soft hands. He does it all.

    Tyrus Thomas is scary. He’s Antonio McDyess with a killer’s mentality.

    Brandon Roy? So then we’ll have 9 guards. Hooray. Take a shot at the big men. No bigs, no playoff series wins.

    I forgot to mention–

    Why not take a chance on one of the bigs and then get your rough and tumble 2 guard at 16? Nbadraft.net has the Bulls doing exactly that:
    Thomas at 2 and Ronnie Brewer at 16. I dig it.

    You say they have a lot of guards, but really they have a lot of LITTLE guards, and no true 2-guard from a size and defense perspective, and I see that as a true need.

    It’s easy to say draft big, but Thomas just seems like a “tools goof” to me for some reason. Keep seeing Stromile Swift.

    At least Aldridge has some offensive polish. I think he would be a good choice–like I said, him or Roy. Aldridge and Brewer would be awesome, sure. Or a Rodney Carey, whose just a freak (!)

    Top choice from a pure fun standpoint would be Morrison, I love to watch him play–on offense. I shutter thinking of him trying to move his feet on D at the next level.

    A tools goof? Did you watch the same LSU I did? He is a killer. And at the very least he will rebound, defend and block shots–things Chandler doesn’t always do.

    Don’t get too stressed out over Prior’s lousy performance, Zoner. He’ll be back on the DL in a couple of weeks and you won’t have to worry about him anymore for the season.
