Game Thread #33: vs Sixers

It's been a long time since I rock and rolled,
It's been a long time since I did the Stroll.
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back,
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Yes it has.

Yeah, it's good to be back.

  • Point Guard - When you see Tony posing without his shirt, can you think of anything BUT the Lemon Song? Did you guys know that this is Andre Miller's 10th year in the league? He, just like the song, is very solid but doesn't really go anywhere.
  • Off Guard -"For you to me are the only one". The most beautiful song I always wanted to dedicate to a woman and never could. So Manu gets it instead. Tangerine is a song that you only remember for its name. Much like Willie Greene.
  • Center -The best there ever was. Zep at its absolute peak. Dazed and Confused came out in '68. The guitar is off the charts and the majesty of it will never be matched. Remind you of anybody? Dalembert is from Haiti by way of Canada and brings a good, yet creepy, energy.
  • Power Forward - Bonner is absolutely the Fool. Thaddeus Young is having a break out year and is enjoying some time in the lime light. Let's see how he likes a little time in Bowen's light.
  • Small Forward -Hey hey what can we do? He's our small forward, want a ball all day. He's our small forward, I stay drunk all the time. Iguodala is every bit of Hot Dog. Kind of fun and out of place, but just an imitation of the real thing.
  • Bench - Your Time Is Gonna Come vs What Is And What Should Never Be
  • Coach - Pop is Stairway To Heaven. A classic that is so overplayed you take it for granted. Their coach is like the entire album of Coda. I don't know anything about it and don't care.
  • Mojo - Commnucinations breakdown. It's always the same. Having a nervous breakdown. It drives you insane. That's our season fellas. Learn to love it.
  • Winner - We'll Ramble On
  • Shout Out To the Aussies - Zebra by John Butler Trio came on while I was finishing this up and made me think of you guys. Butler is fantastic and I love his stuff. The last lyric of the song is off the charts for me and I have a feeling it would really hit home for my boy Hipuks: "I could bring love back into my life. Share it with the world if I got some balance."

Keys To The Game

  • Bench - Last night was a rare NBA night where all 30 teams played. That means we are both on the segababa. We'll need quality from our bench tonight.
  • Their Perimeter Shooting -They shoot an otstandingly bad 29.1% from 3-pt.
  • Our New Year Attitude - We need to start playing better or we'll get crushed by our schedule. Tony and Manu need to step up the quality of their games.

Some other reading

Liberty Baller has a cool feature called Wednesday GM where he proposes various trades. The Sixers season is going so poorly that I read this line on the blog:

The Sixers looked somewhat decent in the 2nd half of the Clippers game
