Links: NBA Finals Diary, Day 10

Let’s get it on! Plus, Clipper Darrell…

by Lang Whitaker

Not much to say here, just wanted to remind everyone that the Game 5 liveblog will be happening here on SLAMonline.com tonight. We’ll get it going just before tipoff, for tonight’s eliminationatory contest. (That’s so not a word, is it?)

I’ve been bunkered down in the hotel room for the last 24 hours, getting my grind ground. Oh, and last night Khalid and I went out to dinner with a ground of NBA and media folk and found ourselves at a long table with none other than Clipper Darrell. I thought I was insane about the Hawks, but I’ve got nothing on Clipper Darrell. I mean, even his car was Clippered out. I love Clipper Darrell. Not the Clippers, though.

Alright, gotta get ready to head to the Stapler. No idea how this is going to play out tonight, but I’m just hoping for a great game. Let’s see what happens.

Catch you guys back here tonight…

    go clippers!

  • http://www.laballtalk.com Lakers Blog

    Also a live blog at http://www.LABallTalk.com if you guys are interested in stopping by and getting a Lakers perspective on the happenings. Good luck to everyone!

  • tealish

    Lakers perspective = refs dictating the outcome of the game + missed bunnies rather than good Boston D?

    I think the Celts will be poppin bottles tonight. Unfortunately.

  • Rydawg

    Oh god please, anything but a Boston championship on LA territory…

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    i’m sure reading the lakers blog would be as infuriating as reading a bill simmons’ blog. dude has no objectivity what so ever when celtics are involved. i guess i can’t blame him, he’s been tuned that way since he was 5 or something.

    albie:He’s a fan,I much prefer what he does to someone who tries to hid their allegiences.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    you are right, but that’s why i like Slam and only come to this site.

  • Rydawg

    hey albie i just checked out your site…Lake show needs to sign up Akagi to body up on KG and Perkins donchathink? haha

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    HA! good to have a fellow SLAMDUNK fan on board. unfortunately, Akagi’s only 6’6″ and 200 lbs. so yes, kobe would have been the best center in the SLAMDUNK world.

  • bballer

    The series is going back to Boston. I will totally be shocked if it doesn’t and the Lakers lose tonight.

  • Yunki

    How the hell did it come down to this?

    Man. Clipper Darrell’s car is awesome.

  • Captain America

    The problem with the Lakers is one thing: the inconsistency of foul-prone Lamar Odom. He disappeared (again) in the second half of last game.

  • Gumdrop

    Clippers in 6.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    Lamar should be called “Up in Smoke” for his disappearing act. and that other thing that he enjoys.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    The ball right now is literally in Kobe’s court. Whatever happens tonight, I think he’s gonna come out gunning. He has to, at this point.

  • Rydawg

    its interesting, as a die hard kobe fan, sometimes i wished he would pass the ball a bit more before and now even some of the kobe haters I know cant understand why he’s passing up so many shots when he needs to bring out the mamba and take over…

  • Rydawg

    albie i got it! PJ needs to convince Mitch Kupchak to hire Anzai to become part of his staff!

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    ohhhhhhh that allen layup hurts. no more replays, please.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    barry just made me sick. seriously.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    Rydawg, at this point, Anzai is doing as much for the lakers as phil jax has been. PJax needs to step his game up.
    wow, KG’s shooting only 38% this Finals. that’s RIDICULOUS.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    I badly want a Lakers win tonight,I’m not ready for the season to be over quite yet.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com/ Hursty

    so is Clipper Darrell his real legit official name? or just a nickname/alias? I know the story of how it came about though.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    DID ANYONE CATCH THE CONTRIVED, FORCED, AGONISING INTERVIEW/TRASHTALK BETWEEN THE WALTONS – FATHER TO SON STYLE – AND ALSO HOW EVERY BOY IN THE WALTON FAMILY LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE DADDY WALTON? …final note: Luke Walton has a deeper voice than Barry Manilow. (If he gets anymore court time the Lakers will not win this series)….he’s worse than Jud Buechler.
