Line Of The Night — Reggie At His Best

And a Kanye-inspired LeBron.

Bron-tasticby Shannon Booher

Line Of The Night:

The TNT production truck for the Denver/Cleveland game.

As the third quarter began in last night’s game, a miracle of miracles occurred–Reggie Miller’s mic was cut off! It was short-lived, and the words of the Czar were also lost in the collateral damage, but it was a glorious time nonetheless. Praise Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Jah, Pac and the Ruler Zig Zag Zig Allah.

Near Fat Lever Of The Night:

LeBron James — 22 points, 11 assists, 8 boards, 3 steals

But it was all about the D, son. Word is that at halftime, Bron was walking around singing: “Give me a ‘Lo lockdown, a ‘Lo lockdown, gimme a ‘Lo lock down, you looooose”. And that’s what happened. Life was very difficult for Melo in the second half and the Cavs got a rare (for the Melo/Bron Era) win over the Nuggets.

Near Beast Of The Night:

Erick Dampier — 18 boards, 16 points, 3 blocks, 1 assist, 1 steal

Nice little stat line from Damp, but the ship be sinking in Dallas, as they lost to the Chi and fell to 2-6. FREE GERALD GREEN!

Andris Biedrins — 19 boards, 17 points, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block

Biedrins has been the highlight of an otherwise bleak season for G-State. They lost this one to the Pistons, but your boy is starting to look like a nice all-around player. What they really need to do is go ahead and ship Al Harrington so they can add another legit guy to their rotation.

NBA-Tinged Lyric Of The Night:

“‘Cause I was running game like Larry to a Bird who could score a lot of points while she dribbles on my balls ’cause she go hard for the green like Celtics”

That’s from 88-Keys’ “Ho’ Is Short For Honey” off his The Death Of Adam album. It’s a solid album, but the theme/storyline he tried to go with does not add much, and probably detracts. “Stay Up” feat. Kanye is the joint, though.

Matt Barnes, Rafter Alston and Steve Nash suspended for their roles in Wednesday night’s dust up. Nash? All he did was get abused twice by McGradles… Best ticket package around league? Detroit’s five-game “Fiverson Package”. Get it? Awesome… That was a garbage call/ejection on Kenyon. Pure reputation. Where’s the support Kenny and Chuck? What did Kenyon do, exactly, on the last play? Pure flop… OMG, if Will Bynum had completed that dunk on Turiaf… Leandro Barbosa’s mother passed, and he will miss several games while he travels to Brazil. Keep your head up, playa…

    YES! I’m glad someone other than myself saw that ‘almost’ dunk by Bynum. I couldn’t remember who he almost woofed it on. That would have been Slam of the Month for sure.

    I didn’t even know he had that in him… must’ve been walking around in strengthening shoes while playing in Europe.

    i tuned in just in time to see that last night. that literally came outta nowhere. Turiaf was lucky he got a hand on it in time. (i still think it was a clean block though. all ball.)

    Bynum has actually being going to the basket hard in Detroit’s first 8 games. He was always athletic, even back at Georgia Tech, but he must have got some HGH Wheaties overseas or something.

    That ’04 Georgia Tech Final Four squad with Bynum, BJ Elder, Jarrett Jack, and Ishmail Muhammad were fun to watch. Cub will know what i’m talking about.

    That was the best missed dunk since Deron Williams in the Olympics!

    What ever happened to Ishmail Muhammad? He used to serve breakfast daily.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Good question on Muhammed. I have no clue. That guy could jump out of the gym, literally.

    Maybe he walked off the court, jumped through the door, then walked to his car…
