!?

So much for me knowing anything. Gasol played today, as did Ginobili. No big deal though, the commentators I heard from in today's games don't know anything either.

Let's start with the Cavs/Raptors game I watched today. As was all over ESPN, Sportsline and such, Lebron decided to blow up with a 56, 10 and 5 performance... that concluded in the Cavs losing. Gooden was playing well too, but Lebron must be sympathizing with AK47 about now. What the commentators (Chuck Swirsky and Leo Rautins, for those of you who are unfamiliar with Toronto's usual commentary team) were lacking knowledge in, in this one, was the 25-7-7 thing. The stat is that only Jordan, Bird, the Big O and someone else (can't recall off the top of my head) have only averaged 25, 7 and 7 in a season before. Technically this is correct, but as is often forgotten, some guy by the last name of Chamberlain once averaged 24.3, 23.8 and 8.6 in a season. He also averaged 24.1, 24.2 and 7.8 the season before that. Technically, they're not 25-7-7. However, in the latter of those two seasons (67-68), Chamberlain was 58 points away from the 2050 point mark, which is 25 PPG in 82 games. Combining his field shooting clip of .595, his charity stripe clip of .38 and his average of .676 FTAs per FGA, Wilt would've only had to take about 40 more field goals in the year, or about half a field goal more a game to be at the 25 point mark. But because he was sans this, he must be ruled out of the situation entirely. Ah, nothing like glancing past this. Speaking of glancing past, at halftime of the Raptors/Cavs game, there was a montage on Lebron and how he compared to "the greatest NBA player of all time, Michael Jordan". Normally I'm used to this and I'm used to the 25-7-7 thing, but together the force was too much for me, so I had to come and bitch about it. I don't understand how Wilt can have so many fantastic records and yet be lambasted when referring to alltime greats by the mainstream media. Is it because he was 7'1, 270 or so? Is it because his career spanned from 1959 to 1973 instead of over the course of the 80's, 90's and early 00's? I just don't get it. If you hadn't guessed already, I much prefer the answer of the Big Dipper when asked who the best player of all time is.

On to the Pistons/Spurs game, where one of the two ABC commentators (this game had Breen and Brown) noted that McDyess played the backup 4 and 5 for the Pistons. I knew about the prior part, but I didn't recall him having played the 5. I checked it out on 82games and sure enough, he'd played a grand total of 0% of minutes at centre for the team. For those who don't understand, this it basically means that he didn't play ZERO time at the spot, but he played so little there that the results were negligible. Bad information was plentiful today, I guess. As for the game itself, the final score was indicative that it was quite an odd game. Duncan going down two minutes into the game leads to... the Spurs and Pistons combining for 211 points? Strange. I thought the Pistons did a very nice job offensively, aside from Hamilton. He looked kind of lost at points out there today, I don't know why. I know he was dinged partway into it, but I don't think that was it. Tayshaun was dinged too, yet he had a line of 8-16, 8 boards, 2 steals and 22 points. Defensively... ugh. Udrih, who I like and who has great upside, shouldn't be going up for 7-13 and 15 points in 20 minutes at this point when his opposition is Chauncey and Arroyo. But overall, nice effort, good to get a win against such a good team, even without their best player. Looking forward to the Cavs on Tuesday, Lebron will probably be looking for revenge after what happened on versus my country's sole team. More reviews of Sunday's action up later.
