Player of the D.A.Y.

Good thing that lethal enforcer Kirk Hinrich is on his team and can’t hurt him.

By Sam Rubenstein

So many ways to go here. Channing Frye had the moment of the night when he hit his deep 2 to force triple OT and then celebrated like he won the championship. But Steph and Jamal Crawford contributed way too much. Eddy too. Rip Hamilton had 51, but his team lost. Big game for Gerald Wallace in a loss. I’m taking the easy way out. Maybe you saw the Carmelo video. I was chopping that thing to pieces all afternoon.

First, two pieces of news regarding coaches.

1. The Czar is out. Fired. Look forward to his return to TV.

2. Pat Riley is whining that Kirk Hinrich injured Dwyane Wade. Stop it Riles. Just stop it.
Ben Gordon gets the player of the D.A.Y. for that. The Heat are melting. Injuries, injuries, wisdom teeth, injuries.

    the idea that two players on the same team canceling each other out for player of the D.A.Y. always reminds me of when A-Rod and Ken Griffey’s monster seasons on the same team cost them both a shot at the MVP…

    Life ain’t fair – and neither is Sam Rubenstein

    Even though Dwyane is bound to get hurt every once in a while, what with his dashes to the hoop, i gotta say FUCK Kirk. Whats that punking being doing since signing that contract huh? sitting back and letting Microwave 2006 get all the (points) glory. Sit his ass down Skiles. I sure hates me some Hinrich. How hard do you have to pull on a guy with Wade’s mass for something to pop?? Hinrich is an ass in my opinion.

    Sam, just watched the Dallas – Phoenix game and the last quarter was great. Nearly felt like the playoffs up in there. And Amare (microfracture whattttt??!) did an incredible high pick & Roll – alley oop – one hander that was insane, in crunchtime! Then Herr Nowitzki just calmly put one in Shawn’s face, game over. Still even though Jet always plays well against them suns, Raja must have said something in the past, give the award to A.I. 44 & 10? Really? With that mess of a team? Gawd.

    Speaking of two handed block shots, anyone see that two-handed-block-shot-catch-the-ball-in-mid-air block that Luol Deng had the other night? Naaaaasty.
