I Hope Manu

What I love about Manu Ginobili is that he remains to be the Manu who's passionate about basketball - about his team. I just hope he stays healthy, so, he'll stay as a Spur for good. “I don't want to miss any more games. I'm a little paranoid,” said the Argentinian icon. It may sound selfish, I just don't want to see Manu wearing other team's jersey. No, I don't even want to think about it.

Check Buck Harvey.

Rondo's Claims Against Paul

Currently, the New Orleans Hornets hangs by a thread with a 1-3 and is fourth at the Southwest division. It was plain to see that the Hornets should be getting worried even if it's just the start of the season. A lot can happen and if Hornets don't do something N-O-W, New Orleans would have to say bye-bye to the playoffs.

But that's not the case with Chris Paul, " Whatever it takes me to do, I’m going to find a way." It's the passion for the game that has got many to like CP3, which Rajon Rondo shares. Their difference is that Rondo has a ring while Paul still aims to have one.

Unsurprisingly, reports said that Rando told CP3 that, "I’ve got a ring, and you’re never gonna win one." Well, that was pretty much unprofessional for our young Celts. To think that he's got their so-called Big Three with him all this time while Paul carried on with what he's got.

Another huge difference that Paul has next to Rondo is humility. You got me all rooting for the Hornets even more with that kind of attitude. Can someone bring Rondo back to Earth? He's probably seeing himself so good. He is good but not as good as Paul is.

Paul was frustrated and worsened because of Rondo's claim. "I’m envious. I’m very envious. Those guys have been where I want to get to. This is my fifth year in the league, and I’m not trying to wait until I’m an old veteran in this league to win a championship. We’re trying to win now," says the Hornets point guard.

The Hornets will win as long as Paul stays and continues to believe that together with his David West, Tyson Chandler, and the rest of the Hornets.

As for Rondo, stay on the ground and watch that attitude before it pulls you down.

First Game Wrap Up

It's just the beginning of the NBA season and yet, here I am getting too excited about it. There's just a lot going on in the association - changes. Shaq's now with King James, unfortunately it was pretty much a slow start for the Cleveland Cavaliers. [not giving anymore side comments on Shaq] The San Antonio Spurs, however, had a good start against the Byron Scott's Hornets with a 113-96 win.

Tim Duncan clutched nine pts and 12 rebounds, Manu Ginobili with 16 pts, and Tony Parker summed up the game with 17 pts and six assists. Second-round draft DeJuan Blair clinched a double-double of 14 pts and 11 boards. Hornets' Chris Paul wrapped up the game with 26 pts and nine assists. The 2-digit difference of the Spurs with the recovered Hornets says a lot about the team's deeper roster.

That was a good start for the Spurs and I won't get too thrilled about it.

Well, it's definitely going to be a fun season.

Will Shaq help King James get the ring he sooo lost last season because of Superman?

Making A Tag Cloud: The Easy Way

I haven't updated my blog since June and I felt like I have to change things around here. And so I did, but my problem was how to make a tag cloud. I searched for better instructions but found none. Well, I found some handy stuff but not quite handy as this one:

Hope I helped some of you who're trying to look for the easiest way in making a tag cloud. Ciao!

Honoring the King of Pop

This entry is pretty much out-of-place for a blog like this. But I'm definitely giving a space for the controversial King of Pop, age 50, who died due to cardiac arrest. The whole industry is mourning as well as his fans.

I'm not a huge fan of his but I definitely am a fan of his music.
There's a place in
Your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could
Be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need
To cry

May you rest in peace MJ.

The Classic Parker Show

My sister was so happy that the Dallas Mavericks came out of Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs with a 1-0 lead and obviously I was feeling otherwise. But then again, it’s a game – you win, you lose. The only difference is that this is the NBA playoffs. And so, I told her that the Spurs will get even and take over the AT&T Center on Game 2.

Spurs’ Tony Parker settled the score to 1-1 with 38 points and eight assists on Game 2 against the Mavs. Tim Duncan finished the game with 13 pts, 11 rebounds, and three blocks. The Mavs’ flaw was being unable to contain TP which is very much evident during Game 1 after Parker had 24 points. Jason Terry, the forerunner for the 6th Man Award this season, finished off with 16 pts with Dirk Nowitzki providing 14 pts with six rebounds.

Overall, it was a classic Parker game. Cheers to all my fellow Spurs fan! But you see, it ain’t over until it’s over. Game 3 & 4 would be in the home of the Mavs and a lot can happen.

Rose @ the Garden

The 2009 NBA Playoffs has begun! I'm so stoked. Here is the list of team ups for the first round:

Eastern Conference
  • Cleveland Cavaliers [1-0] v Detroit Pistons [0-1]
  • Boston Celtics [0-1] v Chicago Bulls [1-0]
  • Orlando Magic [0-0] v Philadelphia 76ers [0-0]
  • Atlanta Hawks [0-0] v Miami Heat [0-0]
Western Conference
  • LA Lakers [0-0] v Utah Jazz [0-0]
  • Denver Nuggets [0-0] v New Orleans Hornets [0-0]
  • San Antonio Spurs [0-1] v Dallas Mavericks [1-0]
  • Portland Trailblazers [0-1] v Houston Rockets [1-0]
One of the most surprising game 1's of the first round happened at The Garden. With Kevin Garnett out this entire playoffs due to a knee injury, the Celtics can still pose a threat to the Bulls but not for long. The Bulls have rookie, Derrick Rose around to survive.

With 36 points, 11 assists, and four rebounds, Rose had made it clear that the Bulls have the guns to win against the defending champs. The Celts' Big Three is down to two, however, so there is that 'what-if' that have surely entered the mind of every Celts fan. "What if KG wasn't injured?" Would he have made a difference?

Well, Rose did that's for sure!..

Marbury a Celt? N-O W-A-Y!

"It's speculation, I don't really have to think about it," said Ray Allen, Boston Celtics.

Honestly, I'm not even sure if he knows what he's saying. It's like welcoming the Celtics' downfall if this speculation comes true. I don't even want to think that someone had the guts to speculate regarding this incredibly troubling subject. Grrrhh!!

I like the Celts enough to stop me from getting really bored with their high stat in the association and pretty good comments from among critics. But if the speculations about New York Knicks' Stephon Marbury going over the Celts, I'd be exxxtremely disappointed. Anything that has something to do with Marbury is very very troubling given the problems he's caused to the poor Knicks.

Valley of The Stars, Yeah That's Right

Phoenix, Arizona, will be host to the upcoming 2009 NBA All-Star. I'm getting psyched about it! I have my All-Stars and here are the non-Spurs players I've already voted for:

Forward: WEST >> Pau Gasol(LAL), Carmelo Anthony(DEN); EAST >> Kevin Garnett(BOS), LeBron James(CLE)
Guard: WEST >> Chauncey Billups(DEN), Chris Paul(NOH); EAST >> Dwayne Wade(MIA), Vince Carter(NJN), Gilbert Arenas(WAS)
Center: WEST >> Marcus Camby(LAC); EAST >> Dwight Howard(ORL)

There are only 17 days left to vote. So, start voting your favorite All-Stars now. Oh, there are no Suns [PHX] on my list yet. Well, I still have time to vote haven't I. I'd definitely want to see Steve Nash play for the West. GO WEST!
