The TRUTH about Sports


perk_chandAm I the only basketball fan outside of Oklahoma City that can’t stand Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka? Perkins, scowl and everything, plays dirtier than most but complains about every call. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have him on my team, but he is so dirty.  Did anyone see the play against Houston last night where he HELD Chandler Parson’s hand to prevent him from playing D against a 3-point shooting Thabo Sefolosha? The worst part of it was that the ref was right there and didn’t even make the call.  I understand home court but this was ridiculous. How is that basketball? You can’t see it from this pic but there’s a referee standing direclty behind Perkins.

As for Ibaka, he just annoys the heck out of me.  Somebody tell him the finger wag after a block was coveted by Mutumbo.  While the PF is a stud, his 13 ppg and almost 8 rpg don’t do him justice.  I just don’t understand how this guy became a tough guy after just 4 years in the league? I wish the Charles Oakleys and teh Bill Laimbeers were here to knock him on his ass.  And how did this guy slip to the 24th pick in the draft? Oh well, looks like the winner in the West is going to come down to the Clippers and Thunder.  But the way these 2 guys are playing, I don’t think the Clippers bigs are ready to mix it.

Mavericks v. Thunder, LET’S GET DIRTY!

Just 1 day away from the Western Conference Finals. Win or go home! The Dallas Mavericks have the home ocourt advantage and we all know how important that is, ask the Lakers.  It surprised us all when they swept the Lakers. I personally thought that Dallas was the weakest of the 8 Western playoff teams and the Lakers would run Dallas in 5 games. The Thunder went the distance with an underrated Memphis Grizzlies team. At the end of the day, it was obvious to me that the Thunder go as far as NOT DURANT but as far as Russell Westbrook goes. No the Mavs have been sitting idle for over 1 week.  Rusty? Maybe, but these guys are veterans.  I do think that it’s the best chance for the Thunder to steal one. I think the Mavs are gonna have their hands full with the Westbrook  There’s no one on Dallas that can hold him.  On the flip side, Nowitzki is gonna have a field day. We know that neither Perkins, Ibaka or Durant can hang with him.  They’re either too slow, too short, or too skinny to guard.  It’s gonna be interesting.  I think that I’m gonna take Dallas.  I know I’m cheering for them but I wouldn’t bet on them.  They do deserve it though, it might be Jason Kidd’s last chance as the window on these vets, Terry, Dirk, Marion, Chandler, Stojakovic  etc. is closing QUICK!!! And I’d love to see Mark Cuban getting the hardware from David Stern…
