Best part of my bday is a chat w/ my 105-year-old grandma talking NBA playoffs. Oh she watches & knows her stuff. Anyone need a TV guest? ;)
Also so many coaching changes now also lead to lack of offensive systems. Think there can be Triangle elements in NY but it just takes time.
Want to bring up a key point on the Triangle in NY: Systems lack in NBA (less continuity on teams) and takes a few years to master Triangle.
Gregg Popovich wins Coach of the Year. Incredible stat: Spurs have won 50 games for 15 straight seasons. And that includes lockout year!
Rookie Steve Clifford finishing just fourth in Coach of Year balloting is shameful. Deserved better.
For those wondering: Kidd, MJackson and Brooks each got one 3rd-place vote. No 1sts or 2nds.
Thibodeau placed third, followed by Clifford, Casey, Stotts, Rivers, Brooks, MJackson and Kidd.
Gregg Popovich has won the Coach of the Year -- the third of his career, joining Don Nelson & Pat Riley as the only other coaches to do so.
Pop wins the award with 59 1st-place votes (out of 124) and 380 points. Jeff Hornacek placed 2nd, w/37 1st-place votes and 339 points.
Gregg Popovich wins Coach of the Year.
Which is how I know it's just about time for bed.
Me & my housemate just had a wide-ranging discussion abt why ppl felt the need to blow into damaged Nintendo cartridges, but not Sega ones.
I get that Mark Jackson has a history with the Knicks. But Phil doesn't seem like someone overly interested in organizational ties right now
Warriors should hire Aerosmith to recut the song for a Draymond tribute video. I don't even care if he's worth a tribute.
Am I the only one who, every time Draymond Green scores, hears Steven Tyler screaming, "Dray-mon! Dray-mah-on!" I am? OK, never mind.
Man, y'all aren't really about to start fouling a team down 30, right? I'm about to turn this game OFF.

League office breathing sigh of relief re Warriors-Clips: at least this is 1G Rod Thorn won't have call out refs 4 botching critical play...
A team that prays together, gets slayed together...
Big question is who do the Thunder go to now that Perkins fouled out? Hey, it worked once.
I didn't know you could call a timeout while kicking the ball and then sliding across the floor after it. Interesting.
Can't wait til the post game interview when Grizzlies coach blames Beno for the Durant 4-pt play and not boxing out Perkins.
Guess I'll save this tweet as a draft: "Why is Scott Brooks leaving in Perkins?"
The reminds me of Knicks/Bucks.
Yeah, I guess I can watch five more minutes of the Thunder and Grizzlies.
I give up on sports, man. Goodness.
What was Greg Anthony saying about putting Perkins in?
Okay, everyone - now you must praise Perkins.
Watching Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka...all I can think is "How much would it have cost the Knicks to hire Sam Presti?"
Durant would've just given someone a letter in HORSE.
Even Thunderstruck wouldn't script Durant making that shot.
A Tarantula could not make that shot.
I thought that shot was thrilling.
Russell Westbrook did not look thrilled with that shot.
Kevin Durant looked thrilled with that shot.
Russell Westbrook must have good doctors.
Funny thing is - player Knicks blamed for everything and dumped, Beno, not only playing now, but also could be a good coach someday.
Beno Udrih once played for the Knicks. I mean, he was on the Knicks but rarely played. But he did get blamed a lot.
NBA has fined Masai Ujiri $25,000 for his "f*** Brooklyn" remark.
So much for no fine - Masai gets $25,000 for obscene language in a public setting. That s***s.
Take that Masai. Ujiri fined $25,000 by NBA for cursing out borough of Brooklyn.
The NBA has fined Raptors GM Masai Ujiri $25K for saying "F*** Brooklyn" in a public setting before Game 1 of Nets-Raptors series.
Toronto Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri has been fined $25,000 for using obscene language in a public setting prior to Game 1.
I'm okay with it, but it's interesting that the NBA decided not to fine Masai Ujiri for his comment.
Step Brothers on FX is making it nearly impossible for me to stay on Thunder-Grizz.
Blame the team that insisted on minutes restrictions for what was one of their top 3 players. Woodson had help from above in this misery.
Before you blame coach, blame team that let JR put off surgery he needed so wasn't ready, then insisted they keep his unqualified brother.
Was Knicks' treatment of Woodson bad, unfair? Not the point. Was it unproductive to winning? Absolutely. That's what fans should care about.
I see my opinion isn't universally shared.
The Grizzlies are wearing the best uniforms in the NBA tonight.
Not really that noteworthy, but kind of interesting: Steve Kerr voted LeBron DPOY, had Joakim second and Hibbert third.
