Saturday's NBA Picks

March 26, 2005

Home Team in CAPS

Anthony's Picks:

Last Night: (3-3), Week: (12-8)

Week completed-- nice work Ant! Now you can enjoy the beach you f*cking *sshole!

Paul's Picks:

Last Night: (1-2), Week: (9-7)
  • Miami -8.5 over CHARLOTTE
  • New Orleans +10 over MEMPHIS
  • DALLAS -7.5 over Cleveland

First let me bitch for a moment-- how in the world do the refs make that travel call on my 'Cats last night?! Are you KIDDING me?! First of all, he clearly took two steps--no idea why Bill and Verne were agreeing with the call. Either they were smoking too much, or not enough because of their obvious cases of glaucoma. Second of all, how in the world do you make a call like that in the waning seconds? Swallow your f*cking whistle unless there's an obvious call-- refs shouldn't be affecting the outcome of a game! Anyways, my boys put up a good fight when nobody gave them a chance. AND they clawed back from down 11 when everyone thought it was over. You gotta give them props for that and I'm looking forward to next season when we're going to be legitimate title contenders. By the way-- I like Illinois in a close game; Louisville big; North Carolina by about 10; and Michigan St in a VERY close, physical game. On to tonight's picks-- Miami is just simply too talented and playing too well for the Bobcats to keep this one close-- look for the Heat to win by at least a dozen. The Hornets can matchup with the Grizz and with Memphis still bringing heads back and Fratello juggling rotations, I like NO to make this a tight game. And Cleveland just sucks on the road (10 straight losses), so anytime they're away from Gund and the line is below 10 against a top Western team, I'd suggest banking on them NOT to cover. Good luck tonight...

Hear, hear.

The shame of it is that Villanova was a title contender THIS year. Their chances of winning it all were just as good as every other team left in the tournament, but now we'll never know what could have been, in those final 9 secs or in those final 3 games, because the ref anticipated a violation that never happened. i truly believe that the ref saw the name on the jersey and assumed that the play was a violation, whereas he would have made an entirely different assumption if the jersey were carolina blue, with all the years' worth of hype and accomplishment that that represents.

villanova would have been the best story of the tournament, what with the 20-year anniversary and the 12 minutes on a plane thinking life was over. now the cats' season is over, and they, their fans, and all fans of ncaa basketball are left cheated.

my condolences, paul.
