モー・ウィリアムズ

リンク: CAVS GUARD GOT BIG ASSIST FROM SLOAN - New York Post.

"I'll never forget Sloan's reaction," Williams said with a shudder. "He came storming onto the court screaming, 'Damn you, Kirilenko, you think just because you've got an $84 million contract you can do whatever the bleep you want to do out here! Well, I've bleepin' news for you . . .' "

Williams said Sloan's earthy message was the best thing that could've happened to him . . . and the team, a consensus pick to go nowhere fast, yet finished 41-41.

"Man, if Sloan was gonna get on Kirilenko like that, I knew damn well what I had to do," Williams said. "I was like Speedy Gonzalez. I did exactly as told and then some. The funny thing is, everything I'd heard about Jerry turned out the opposite."
"A lot of bad words come out of his mouth. But, if you do it right the next time, in his next breath, he'll praise you just as heatedly. A lot of coaches don't understand; they beat you down without picking you back up," Williams said. "Jerry taught me how to be a point guard," he said. I asked him what that entails: "To think versus rely simply on instincts . . . time and possession . . . teammates needing to be spoon-fed . . . not giving the ball to a big man on the break unless he has a free lane . . . creating space --separation -- which is the object of the pick-and-roll, and then reading and reacting."

ジャズ時代について、モー「キリレンコがさぼっていた時の監督の反応は一生忘れない。「おいこら、キリレンコ!!8400万の契約をもらったから何してもいいと思ってるんじゃないだろうな!!」って言ったんだぜ。キリレンコでこれなんだからな。俺は自分のしなくちゃいけないことがよーく分かったよ。俺はスピーディー・ゴンザレス(アニメに出てくるネズミのキャラ)みたいな速さで言われたことを実行したものだ。」

「でも彼に関するうわさは全部間違っていたのがのちにわかった。汚い言葉を使うが、怒られたあとに正しく実行すれば同じくらいの熱意で褒めてくれる。他の多くの監督はしかるだけでそういうところができていない。・・・彼からはPGのプレーを学んだ。」

今日のアリーナスのコメント

リンク: Gilbert Being Gilbert: Best Of Return Quotes - D.C. Sports Bog.

On his nerves: "I don't get nervous. No, I don't get nervous. That's some old days when I got nervous. Now I was just out there to see how the knee felt."

On the day that was: "You ever heard that expression, 'If you want it to rain, wash your car?' You know, that's what happened this morning. I got here, knee's been feeling fine this whole time, as soon as I got here it started aching. And I'm like awww, man, see I knew this was gonna happen. So I said I wasn't gonna play. And then once I got home it felt better. I was like man, that's just nerves kicking in, and once I went out there it was just all basketball from there. I don't know if the building was cold. I don't know what happened, it just all of the sudden started aching. I just got in the house and I was like, oh, my knee feels better. Once I said I wasn't playing, the knee feels better."
On being introduced fourth, in front of Caron Butler: "That was a little different. That was awkward. But, you know, it's basketball. It's just introductions. It's not like the last person wins a car or anything."


Gilbert, on the fans' reaction: "Oh. You know, they miss me, what can I say?"

On scouting the NCAA Tourney: "No, I don't watch the JV. My Arizona boys got put out. So it's no point in even watching that."

On why he already broke his no-media pledge: "You know how I am. You know, I'm wishy washy."

以下、復帰後初戦についてのアリーナスのコメント。

久しぶりで緊張したか聞かれて、アリーナス「いや、しないよ。緊張なんてとうの昔に忘れている。」

ブザービーターを狙ったもののよりによってクワミなんぞにブロックされたことについて、アリーナス「飛行機の中で考え込むことになりそうだ。タイムアウトを取るべきだったのかドライブするべきだったのか・・・でも結果は結果だ。受け入れないと。どうすべきだったかよくわからない。」

試合前に一度足が痛くなって家に帰ったことについて、アリーナス「雨が降ってほしいなら車を洗え(注・・・「車を洗った後に限って雨が降る」、「希望と逆のことが起こる」という意味かと)、という表現を聞いたことはあるか?今朝はそんな感じだった。これまでずっと大丈夫だったのにアリーナに来ると膝が痛くなった。「ほら見ろ、こうなると思ってたぜ」と思った。だからあのときは「今日はプレーしない」って言ったんだ。でもそのあと家に帰ったら調子が良くなった。プレーしないって言った後によくなったんだ。」

選手紹介のとき、5番目ではなく4番目に紹介されたことについて「いつもと違ったので変な感じだったが、選手紹介だからな。最後に紹介されたからといって景品がもらえるわけじゃないからな。」

NCAAトーナメントについて「見てない。俺の母校はトーナメントにいないから見る意味がない。」

メディアにはしゃべらないと言ったのにインタビューを受けていることについて「俺の性格を知ってるだろ。ころころ変わるんだよ。」

シャック

リンク: Courtside Blog.

"No," Shaq said when asked if he could share about his conversation with Przybilla that landed them both T's.

"He said I threw the ball at him and I said, yeah. That's what I did. So what? Do something about it. I'm not much of a talker."

When asked if he could receive a fine for admitting he "threw the ball" at Przybilla, Shaq quickly corrected himself.

"I didn't throw it. I dropped it. Hey, it doesn't matter to me - whatever they do. It's been done before. You move on. I just dropped it. He was in the way. If he wouldn't have flopped and been on the floor, he wouldn't have been down there."

You don't like the floppers do you, asked one reporter.

"No. It just shows you are giving in. The referees are probably going to go for that every time. You've got to now (flop). It's the only way you can stop a person. It's kind of crazy the refs go for that."

So what did Shaq think of Oden?

"I don't. I'm a Shogun. You can't ask me about a low level ninja. I still have to worry about Yao Ming, Dwight Howard."

プリズビラと喧嘩をしたことについて、シャック「あいつが「ボールを俺に向かって投げただろ」と言ったから。「そうだ」って言ってやっただけだ。で、ダブルテクニカルだぜ。これがたいしたことか?なんとかしてくれ。ったく、俺はおとなしいほうなのに。」

「というか俺は投げたんじゃない、ボールを落としただけだ。・・・あいつらがフロップをしようと俺は気にしない。ずっとされてきたことだからな。まぁ、あいつはフロップしなきゃこれまで生き残れなかっただろうがな。」

「フロップをするやつは嫌いだ。フロップをするってことは「降参」てことだ。レフェリーさえ認めてるなんてクレイジーだ。」

オーデンについて「俺は将軍だぞ。そんな低レベルの忍者の話を俺にするな。ヤオやドワイトならともかく。」

Rアーテスト

リンク: Sports Radio Interviews » Blog Archive » Ron Artest, A Changed Man?.

On why the Rockets are better off than they were in last year’s postseason:

“People gotta understand that last year when Houston played the Utah Jazz, who was it, Yao Ming didn’t play in the playoffs.  And, Rafer got hurt, Rafer got hurt, make no mistake, the Rockets are for real.  Make no mistake about it, the Rockets are for real.”

On what makes the Rockets who they are:

“The good thing about the Rockets is we don’t care who shoots the ball - if you feel like you got an advantage, go take advantage of it.  But, the young fellas gotta learn, they gotta learn when to back it up, when to slow it up.  We gotta get used to that…we gotta pick and choose our spots better, and that’ll change in the future.”

On the way he records his music:

“Yeah, yeah, got a studio in the car.  Sometimes you get multi-idea in the car, you get multi-ideas in the shower.  That’s the next step, put a studio in the shower.”

音楽のレコーディング場所について「ああ、車の中にスタジオがある。アイディアは車の中とかシャワー中なんかにうかぶ時もあるからな。・・・次はそれだな。風呂にスタジオ設置でいこう。」

ロケッツのいいところについて「シュートを打つ選手は誰でもいい、というところだ。優位な状況にあればそれを生かせばいいんだ。若い奴らはテンポを落とすことなんかを学ばないとだめだがいずれよくなるだろう。」

去年と今年の違いについて「去年はヤオやラファーがけがだった。そこを理解しないと。ロケッツは強いぜ。本物だ。」

マーリンズ(抜き打ち断髪)

リンク: Marlins find themselves in a hairy situation with Hanley Ramirez - Big Leag... - MLB - Yahoo! Sports.

What's the beef? Well, Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez recently forced all of his long-haired players, including Ramirez, into an impromptu date with the clubhouse hairdresser. He also banned any jewelry worn onfield by Ramirez or any of his teammates. 

"We want to look professional," Gonzalez told the Sun-Sentinel. "Nice and neat."

Only problem was that Ramirez, ranked first overall in Yahoo!'s fantasy baseball game, didn't take kindly to having his shortish dreads shorn off or his chain yanked off his neck. Once the media entered the Marlins' clubhouse on Thursday, Ramirez made sure he was seen sporting a strong message — "I'm sick of this ****" — written in Sharpie across his chest.

"I'm angry," he told reporters. "I want to be traded ... It's incredible. We're big leaguers."

マーリンズの偉い人は髪の長い選手や貴金属をつけた選手が気に入らないらしく、急きょ、そういうことを禁止したらしい。

2項目とも当てはまっていたため無理やり散髪させられたチームの希望の星、Hラミレス「トレードしてほしい。信じられない。俺たちはプロだぜ。」

アリーナス(ブログ界の巨匠引退)

リンク: NBA.com: Arenas says he's 'retired' as a blogger.

"I retired," Arenas said in the home locker room before Washington's game against Charlotte. "No more blogging for me."

Really?

Why not?

"It's just like the double-(edged) sword thing: Eventually your words is going to kill you," Arenas said with a smile.

Asked to explain his thoughts further, Arenas smiled.

"I started looking at it as, before, it was fun, and everybody has fun reading it. And then it's like everything I said, everybody started using it as firepower, instead of saying it's just entertainment. You know, people started using it, trying to take bits and pieces instead of enjoying the blog," the three-time All-Star said. "So once I started seeing that, I just started visualizing, eventually, this is going to be the double-(edged) sword thing. It made me and it's going to kill me, so I might as well stop."

もうブログは書かないことについて、アリーナス「俺は引退した。もうブログはやらない。もろ刃の剣なんだ。自分の発言にやられるはめになるんだ。・・・最初は楽しかった。みんなも楽しんでくれた。だがそのうち俺の言ったことが相手のやる気のもとになっていった。単なるエンターテイメントではなくなった。単に読んで楽しむのではなく、都合よく使い始めた。・・・そういうことに気づいてから、これはもろ刃の剣になると思うようになった。だからやめたほうがいいと思った。」

ドガーン( ̄□ ̄;)・・・

怪我さえなければこういうことにはならなかっただろうけど・・・また絶妙なタイミングで怪我しましたからね・・・シューズの企画、アニメの企画、全部始まりかけたところでしたからね・・・で、またチームが見事なまでにぶっ壊れましたからね・・・自主規制というか自粛したくなりますよね・・・。

まぁその何というか・・・・その・・・このヴァカめ。早く戻ってこい。

Joakim Noah

People say, "How come NBA players lose all their money?" It's because we're making money like a 40-year old businessman would make. If a 40-year old businessman made money like us, he's very successful. Right? But at 40 years old, you're established, you have a family, you don't have people pressing you for money, you know what I'm saying? We're 23. Single. A lot of people are single. A lot of people come from areas where they don't have the means, and don't understand the whole money situation. They don't understand that when it says $1.5 million, half of that goes to taxes, and the house, and the agent. I mean, it goes.

So your friends will actually just come up to you and ask you for money?

Oh, all the time. All the time.

And you give it to them?

I mean, it's hard to say no to somebody that you grew up with your whole life and you know they're in a situation. That would be a good story to ask players.

Do you remember your first check?

I remember it was negative. I remember it was negative. I had some fines. I had a lot of fines. I didn't see a lot of it.

レブロンの体重は113キロもあるらしい。これはどうなの。バレジャオとイルガウスカスがともに260で4キロぐらいしか違わんというのはどうなの。 パパッと他のチームの選手の体重も見たけど、250超えてるのは本当に一部のセンターしかおらんぞ。250というとダンカン(255)、アマレ(249)、ガーネット(253)とかそのクラス。

しかしとある情報筋によると「レブロンの体重は272ポンド」という説もあるらしい。その情報が正しいのかはともかくそこでの「やつはアイバーソン並にスピードのあるKマローン」というコメントは正しい気がする。

ニックス(ドラフトでも負けてます)

リンク: Kings Team Report - NBA - Yahoo! Sports.

Gallinari is likely going to have back surgery, which would a disappointing conclusion to an underwhelming rookie campaign for the former No. 6 pick. Meanwhile, Thompson—who was taken 12th overall out of little-known Rider University in New Jersey—entered play ranked 10th among rookies in scoring (10.4 per game), fifth in rebounds (6.9) and first among all players in one fascinating category: fouls.

While Thompson continues to routinely struggle on the defensive end, his habit of getting in foul trouble isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The improvements on that end will continue to come, but he refuses to be embarrassed every time out and that often leads to hacking away at would-be scorers. All in all, it appears they found a good player with their pick.

ニックスのドラフト6位新人、ガリガリ君よりも、キングスの無名の新人Jトンプソンのほうが活躍してるぞ、という内容。ジャージー生まれだから人気もこっちのほうが高そうだ。

The Knicks deserved the boos they were hearing from their fans at the Garden during the loss for a number of reasons. But their inability to out-rebound the league’s worst rebounding team most certainly was one of them. The Kings—who entered play with the league’s worst rebounding differential (minus-5.42)—won the battle of the boards 52 to 36.

ニックスはいまだにファンからブーイングされているらしい。ちなみにこの日ブーイングされた原因のひとつは、リバウンド最低チームのキングスにリバウンドをもぎとられまくったから。

“I would say (being in the top five) was really important,” he said. “But my thing when I first came into this league, I always said to myself, ‘When I leave, I will be remembered,’ and I’m up there with some pretty good company. But if I didn’t have three years worth of injuries and 5,000 missed free throws, right now I’d probably be at least No. 3. … So I’m a little disappointed in myself right now, but it’s a good milestone.

“On the other hand, I’d rather be in the third or fourth position for the playoffs—if I could trade that, it’d be better. Milestones don’t really mean anything unless you win the whole thing.”

通算得点が歴代5位になったものの若干不満があることについて、シャック「3年分の怪我や5000本のフリースローミスがなければ3位にはなってたよな・・・。」

Boozer said he got in touch with Love, Obama’s personal assistant, to ask what he was doing.

“I said, ‘Reggie, what’s up with President Barack picking the Tar Heels to win the whole thing?’” Boozer said. “He said, ‘I know. He stabbed us both in the back on national TV.’”

選手の傾向

リンク: The No-Stats All-Star - NYTimes.com.

Battier learns a lot from studying the data on the superstars he is usually assigned to guard. For instance, the numbers show him that Allen Iverson is one of the most efficient scorers in the N.B.A. when he goes to his right; when he goes to his left he kills his team. The Golden State Warriors forward Stephen Jackson is an even stranger case. “Steve Jackson,” Battier says, “is statistically better going to his right, but he loves to go to his left — and goes to his left almost twice as often.” The San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginóbili is a statistical freak: he has no imbalance whatsoever in his game — there is no one way to play him that is better than another. He is equally efficient both off the dribble and off the pass, going left and right and from any spot on the floor.

(“Someone created the box score,” Morey says, “and he should be shot.”) How many points a player scores, for example, is no true indication of how much he has helped his team. Another example: if you want to know a player’s value as a ­rebounder, you need to know not whether he got a rebound but the likelihood of the team getting the rebound when a missed shot enters that player’s zone.

They are the hustle and flow, and every great team has a glue guy. I’m thinking maybe we finally found ours.

He doesn't get a lot of recognition because he's a quiet guy and keeps to himself. I don't know how many interviews he does. He kind of stays out of the public eye. But I feel like he's definitely one of the best. You would definitely have to put him in your top four power forwards in the league right now.

What makes David so good is that he has an unbelievable jump shot. I think outside of maybe Dirk that David has the best jump shot, from the college three-point line and in, at the power forward position. Nobody shoots as good as him, he's just money.

Playing for the Lakers has so many benefits. One of my favorites is the close proximity between L.A. and San Diego, my home. I couldn’t ask for any better support from my family and friends. One of my biggest supporters, if not best supporter, is my Grandmother Gloria, whom everyone calls Great Grandma Glo.

How passionate is Great Grandma Glo about the Lakers? Well, for starters, she never misses a game. I mean never. She watches them all on NBA League Pass. She’ll be at home with one of my uncles or a bunch of her friends or visiting my dad’s house watching. And when she tunes in, she’s decked out all in Lakers gear. She has the necklaces going, the jersey or L-u-u-u-u-k-e t-shirt.

Secondly, Great Grandma Glo surfs the internet and checks out all of the articles about the team the next day and after she reads them, she’ll send e-mails to her friends. She has quite a distribution list.

Reading this blog, you might be, ‘Yeah, right, Luke.” But trust me, she’s diehard.

Great Grandma Glo will call me about something she read in the L.A. Times or the Orange County Register or the L.A. Daily News. I mean, she reads them all – Riverside Press, Long Beach Press-Telegram, you name it.

Jスローン(携帯とかパソコンのことはよくわからん)

リンク: Tribune Blogs -- Jazz Notes: Ross Siler and Steve Luhm.

Growing up in McLeansboro, Ill., Jazz coach Jerry Sloan's family didn't get a phone for the first time until his junior year in high school. So you can only imagine the fun Wednesday in trying to explain Twitter to the soon-to-be 67-year-old.

    One of the local television stations asked Sloan about Charlie Villanueva sending a tweet (update) from the locker room at halftime of Milwaukee's game Sunday against Boston and the resulting fallout with Bucks coach Scott Skiles.

    "I don't follow that," Sloan said. "I don't even have a computer. I don't know how to turn one on. I don't know what you're talking about. I'm going to be totally honest. How would you do that?"

    Sloan was told that Villanueva could do it through his cell phone. This brought more confusion. "I have a phone, but I don't know how to use it that way," Sloan said. "I wish I did, but I didn't want to be aggravated. I've just kind of been that way all along."

    Sloan has had a no cell phone rule on the team bus - - the Jazz's p.r. staff often has to text us with updates about practice times and whatnot - - but is realistic about how closely his players are adhering to it.

    "I know they're back there on the bus, hiding around, doing that stuff," Sloan said.

    Deron Williams walked by and was told we were trying to explain Twitter to Sloan. "Coach doesn't like it when we text," said Williams, who claimed to know little about Twitter. He said nobody would even think about doing it at halftime as long as Sloan was coach.

    The Jazz did have a moment earlier in the season, Sloan said, when a player's phone went off during a meeting. "Years ago, I would have put my foot on it and squeezed on it," Sloan said. "I'm too old to do that. I'm afraid I'll slip off it and hurt myself."

"Now, for the Tar Heels that are watching, I picked you all last year — you let me down," the president said. "This year, don't embarrass me in front of the nation, all right? I'm counting on you. I still got those sneakers you guys gave me."

Renaldo Balkman would like to work out with Rodman before his European tour begins in November in Belgium. The Nuggets forward, who grew up idolizing Rodman and believes his game is similar, wants to work out this summer with Rodman. The only problem is locating the vagabond former rebounding whiz.

Buck then got Rodman’s number, and the plan was to keep in touch. By the following summer, when Balkman was in Las Vegas for summer league with the Knicks, he met Rodman for the first time.
“Just meeting him felt great,’’ said Balkman, who believes his energetic game and defensive skills conjure up some images of Rodman, who played in the NBA from 1986-2000, leading the league seven times in rebounding. “He just told me to never give up.”

Balkman then told Rodman he would like to work out with him some day, and Rodman apparently was agreeable.

“He’s a crazy guy. I’m a crazy guy. I’m not as crazy as Rodman, though, with all those tattoos.’’

“Renaldo is the new Rodman, but he can score better,’’ said Dahntay Jones while bantering with Nuggets teammate Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony then agreed, saying, “He’s an offensive Rodman. I’ll take that. I’ll go with that.”

    "Unlike when I was in Sacramento, I had to get the crowd riled, all rowdy, just to make it a fun, entertaining game," Artest said. "When I come here, the Rockets are already entertaining."

"This has been the worst year of my NBA career, and the least amount of fun I've ever had," said Davis, a 10-year veteran, his head shaking, his voice low, his eyes partly shaded by a black Dodgers cap.

He bit off part of the doughnut. He may possess a five-year, $65-million contract, but his face is a mask of sadness. "I've had seasons where I haven't had great numbers, but at least I have had fun. But this year, it's all just spiraled downhill from the start."

He said he had imagined a brilliant homecoming, not this. That this is happening in front of family and friends in an arena a few miles from his childhood home in South L.A. weighs on his heart.

せっかく故郷でプレーすることになったのにひどいシーズンを送っていることについて、バロン・デイビス「最悪のシーズンだ。楽しいこともほとんどない。これまでのキャリアでは、成績が良くない時もあったが、そんなときでもなんらかの楽しさはあった。今年は最初から下り坂だ。」

引っ越しの季節

リンク: Villanueva bucks up this year - The Boston Globe.

According to an NBA executive, there is growing concern inside the Kings organization that if their arena issue isn't resolved, they could end up moving to Anaheim. Anaheim has been hoping to get an NBA team for years, has filled its arena for Lakers exhibition games and Clippers regular-season games, and could attract fans from as far south as San Diego. The Lakers and Clippers, however, could challenge for territorial rights fees, and it could be hard for the Kings to find a spot on television in LA, too. The financially strapped Pacers, who reportedly have lost $200 million since 1983, also could be on the move eventually. San Jose, Kansas City, Seattle, and Las Vegas are potential future NBA homes.

But the green Lakers gear actually sold well when it first went on the market.

Pジャクソン(動物にたとえるなら)

リンク: NBA.com: Lakers' Jackson marches on toward 10th title as an NBA coach.

Jackson has a propensity to compare players to animals, as if he's telling stories around a campfire. Jackson described Michael Jordan as having "a pit bull's mentality." He made a cameo in the 2005 film Harlem Globetrotters: The Team that Changed the World and labeled one of the Globetrotters a "jack rabbit." This season he illustrated Trevor Ariza's defense by saying, "He's a cobra out there and he just strikes and takes the ball and he's terrific at it."

Which leads to the obvious question: What animal is Jackson?

"A fox," says Derek Fisher, who has played for Jackson for seven of the nine seasons that Jackson's been in L.A.. "He's really sly. He doesn't make a lot of noise when he's around. He just kind of comes and does what he wants to do and needs to do and then he disappears back out into the woods. He's just chilling amongst the trees."

PジャクソンはMジョーダンのことを「ピットブル的な性質がある」と言い、Tアリザのことを「コブラのようにボールを奪う」と言ったことがある。

Stern used to joke with friends that he felt his real first name was "Stupid" because of all the times Auerbach addressed him that way. Jackson and Stern have had their spats, too, over scheduling, officiating, cameras in the locker room and, most recently, Jackson's reluctance to assume All-Star coaching duties.

"This is a tough league," Stern said during All-Star weekend in Phoenix. "We've got lots of unhappy people. They get unhappy if they don't get elected, they get unhappy if I don't select them if there's an injury ..."

マーフィーのブログより

I go to look out the window and there is a foot draped over my seat by the person behind me. I turn the other way and notice another foot about 3 inches from my ear. This is not a normal foot, mind you, it's about the size of a roll of paper towels. I turn around and see Roy with his feet on my chair and one of those neck pillows that is the shape of an inflated horseshoe around his neck. On his head is a Phillies cap that is 2 seconds away from falling off.

He's sitting next to Travis, which I find very interesting. You have to watch Travis because he can be very tricky on flights. Roy has an expensive bag he uses as a carry-on and on our last flight from Boston, Travis thought it would be a good idea to hide a meatball in it.

Now, this was not a meatball in tin foil or anything but a meatball with pasta sauce and parmesan cheese on it. Roy was not amused, to say the least. He looked like he was going to stuff Trav in an overhead compartment for the flight.

以下、このマーフィーのエントリーについて、とあるブログの管理人

So then at the Fieldhouse last night, I found out Murph DID labor over the words. When I mentioned to Pacers.com maestro, Conrad Brunner, that Murph could always fall back on blogging when his playing days are over, I was informed that Murph pounded out the nearly thousand-word entry on his Blackberry with no additional editing.

After the game, Murph confirmed the story considering it no big deal since the flight was so long. He also seemed genuinely excited to have his writing receive a favorable review, so hopefully he'll churn out a few more posts before the season ends. But, please Murph, grab a laptop. I don't want to hear about your double-double streak (currently 11) ending because you have to leave the game with severe thumb cramps.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The financial collapse has hit the city known as Wall Street South.

For years, Bank of America Corp. and Wachovia Corp. helped turn Charlotte into a financial powerhouse. Now, the big banks have thrust it into the same predicament as the real Wall Street -- the city is losing thousands of jobs and an unquantifiable amount of prestige. Residents who invested heavily in the banks have seen their wealth dissipate and lifestyles change radically.

The Sixers celebrated the final game at the Spectrum, which will be torn down later this year, by introducing members of the 1982-83 championship team (Julius Erving, Moses Malone, Bobby Jones, Marc Iavaroni, Earl Cureton, Franklin Edwards, Clemon Johnson, Reggie Johnson) and the 1966-67 champions (Wali Jones) before the game. Noticeable no-shows were Maurice Cheeks and Billy Cunningham. The Sixers earned their first sellout of the season at the Spectrum, which is across the street from the team’s current home, the Wachovia Center.

怪我対策

リンク: Evening Scoop: The "Ariza Rule"? - Basketball News & NBA Rumors -.

The most recent case involved Lakers forward Trevor Ariza, who caught Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez on a break and drilled him to the floor after nearly taking off his head. Don't get me wrong - it was a clean play. Ariza was clearly going for the ball and missed . . .resulting in Fernandez's injuries and subsequent hospital visit. Ariza was assessed a Flagrant 2 and ejected from the game, and the NBA didn't feel the need to pile on any other penalties. But this is just the latest in a series of similar plays that have resulted in significant injuries for the players involved.

The last time the NBA got this physical we saw an intervention at the league level. The "Derek Harper Rule" was the direct result of the 1994 NBA Finals series, in which knock-down-drag-out defense was taken to a new level. Houston Rockets guard Kenny Smith wore New York Knicks guard Derek Harper as a jacket for most of the series, inspiring the new hand-check rules that have made defense above the free throw line somewhat of a lost art. Perhaps it's time for another, similar adjustment. . .before any more players wind up in the hospital.

Actually. I've had 4 different NBA GMs tell me that's why we're seeing so many more injuries of late than we've seen in the past. No kidding!

選手が超人化してきて、昔に比べて怪我が増えてるからなんとかしようぜ、という意見。一部のNBAのGMたちもその気持ちはわかるらしい。

Malone's statement was a response to this quotation by Hannity: "But I think what happened with Bush Derangement Syndrome -- this is important -- is that they so went after the president. They accused our troops of being Nazis, compared them to the gulags, said they were terrorizing women and children in the dark, and accused them of murder without even any evidence." He continued, "These are congressmen and senators doing this."

Malone replied, "Well, first of all, the Congress and the senators need to be slapped around for saying it. These are our kids." He went on, "Look at me. Turn the cameras off, and I'll slap them. OK."

Conservative commentator Tony Blankley then said, "I'll hold your coat for you."

Rアレン(フリースローの秘訣)

リンク: Free and easy - The Boston Globe.

"That dude's having a super career year, Ray Allen," Pierce said. "He's never shot over 92 percent. I thought I'd get within like 6 or 8 percent of him, but he is just running away with it. That's little stuff we do to push each other. Dang, he's got his career year. I didn't know he was shooting 95. He's killing me."

Allen ranked fourth in the NBA in free throw percentage last season at a career-best .907. The 13-year veteran is now shooting a stunning .954 from the line (206 of 216). The franchise record is .932 (342 of 367) by Bill Sharman during the 1958-59 season. The NBA record is .958 (206 of 215) by Houston's Calvin Murphy during the 1980-81 season.

Despite Allen's free throw prowess, he is second in the NBA. Toronto's Jose Calderon has shot nearly 100 fewer than Allen but is hitting at an amazing .983 clip (117 of 119), and once made 84 straight this season. Moreover, he was one of seven players who had shot at least .900 from the line entering last night.

"The top four, that's probably some of the highest free throw shooting in the league," said Allen. "Normally, 91 [percent] is pretty much leading it. That's some pretty good free throw shooting."

While he says he had great teachers while growing up, he mainly credits his college coach, Connecticut's Jim Calhoun. At the beginning of every practice, Allen said, Calhoun would pit the players in free throw shooting contests. Once the competition was over, the losers would have to go on the opposite side of the floor from Calhoun to be seen by everyone before running to the coach. Calhoun would almost make a point to let everyone know when the usually sharpshooting Allen lost.

リンク: NBA.com: Financial troubles put Pacers' future in limbo.

Among the key issues for the struggling franchise is its operation of Conseco Fieldhouse. The building where the team plays its home games belongs to the Indianapolis Capital Improvement Board, and the Pacers have been paying its $15 million operating cost. Pat Early, the board's vice president, said the Pacers have made it clear that they no longer can pay that amount, in part because they could lose $30 million this season.

"It's possible they could move the team," Early said. "It's possible they could sell the team. It is also possible they could shut the team down. What's not possible is the Pacers losing the kind of money they're losing this year indefinitely."

"We can handle the team," he said. "It's the operation of the facility that's causing us the problem. We're not asking anyone to pay for us. It's just the operating of the facility."

The Pacers and the Capital Improvement Board struck their current deal 10 years ago, and Early said they are in the early stages of renegotiating. He said the board can't pay the operating cost because it already faces a $43 million shortfall, and he's unsure who would.

In most NBA organizations, there would be a coaching change, if for nothing else than to bring a fresh voice and new approach to the forefront.

But here is the Clippers dilemma: Dunleavy still has two years remaining on his contract, after this year. At over $5 million per year, he is one of the highest-paid coaches in the league, despite having only one season in his six years at the helm in which the Clippers finished above .500 and made the playoffs.

If Dunleavy is fired, not only would Sterling have to pay Dunleavy those remaining years, but Sterling would have to hire and pay a new head coach, not to mention a general manager, too.

The Phoenix Suns make Stromile Swift's fifth NBA stop. Swift played just six games this season for New Jersey, spending about six weeks away from the team as his mother turned gravely ill from kidney disease after a horrible string of other health problems.

She passed away Jan. 27.

Then, a contract buyout last weekend in time to make him eligible for the Suns' possible postseason berth happened. Swift signed a prorated deal that will pay him about $289,000 for the remainder of the season.

Swift should have no problem with the Suns' system -- run, jump, dunk.

"I was a little bit nervous at first," Swift said. "I didn't know what to expect. After talking to coach (Alvin) Gentry, I feel comfortable with the style.

"I still feel like I have a lot of potential. There are still some things out there I can do. I've got to be more consistent at the things I do well."

Up until recently, Chicago coach Vinny Del Negro has benched Derrick Rose for long stretches in the fourth quarters of games. Del Negro has defended the move by saying the team benefited by having Kirk Hinrich on the court because he is a better defender.

The rookie, Rose, hasn't complained, but general manager John Paxson publicly criticized sitting the point guard at the end of games.

"I've talked to Vinny about this," Paxson said. "And our future is Derrick. There's no secret of that. There are times that I personally feel -- and Vinny knows this -- that I feel he should be on the floor at the end of games.

"I do think he's sitting over there a lot of times and there are reasons he plays Kirk for defensive purposes, but we've talked about the fact in order for Derrick to learn and grow as a player, situationally he's going to have to go through some things. And he's not always going to succeed, he's going to have some failures along the way, but every player does."

I was the success story around Memphis, (called) the best since Penny Hardaway. They were writing stories like 'Books Over Ball,' because I was a great academic student in high school.

On how much coverage he got from the Lakers organization, Kobe and Phil Jackson:

“Oh we had complete access. We had thirty cameras. Kobe wore a mic. And Phil Jackson allowed us to bring a camera into the locker room before the game, halftime, and after the game. Phil Jackson never does that.”

On how much editing the Lakers or the NBA did demanded?

“There was not any change suggested. And also, the method of broadcast, when it comes out on the DVD that’s out on Tuesday - it will be uncensored so there’s a lot of language. You really get a feel for what these guys are saying out there. And they’re not mincing words either.”

On his pending documentary project about Michael Jordan (things are currently still in the negotiations process for rights) and what might be in it that people don’t already know about MJ.

Any time you get lawyers involved it gets stuck. It’s not Mike.”

“In Michael’s last season in Chicago, a camera was with him every single day during that season. And the NBA has been sitting on this footage for years. I mean, phenomenal stuff. There’s just so much amazing material and they’ve been sitting on it. And they finally realized they needed a filmmaker to make it into a film. So I’m going to go back, cut that stuff, then interview the players, the people that were a part of that great run. So it’s a fascinating look at one of the greatest athletes of all time.”

On whether or not he thinks Larry Bird was overrated:

“I never ever denied that he was a great player. What I was talking about was at that time in the league, the way the press and TV talked about the guy was like the second coming of Jesus and there was nobody else. Larry Bird this, Larry Bird that. I mean Dennis Johnson, Robert Parish, they were on that team too. And Larry Bird wasn’t doing it alone. The man’s a great ball player. I’ve always just disliked every team from Boston anyway.”

“We call him Buckets McGee because he has a knack for scoring.”

On his team heading down the stretch:

“We still feel we’re the only team who can beat us, and when we play how we’re supposed to we can’t be beat.”

On the strangest motivational tactic Phil Jackson has used on Farmar:

“Well it was my rookie year when I wasn’t playing much. I ate a hamburger at halftime because I was starving. I wasn’t playing, I wasn’t getting any minutes. So I didn’t think..it had been like ten or twelve games where I didn’t see the court. And he saw me eat the hamburger, he fined me, he got mad at me. It was a close game up in Seattle and he put me in and said I hope you blow it.”

KG

Celtics are 16-4 without KG, what does that mean?

“It means that we’re playing well and that’s about it. It’s brutal without him, I can tell you that.  Especially defensively.  One of the things, he’s a run stopper if you guys know what I mean.  The one thing I’ve always loved about Kevin, he’s a great guy to throw it down to the post and stop a run.  Not having him we’re relying on a lot of jump shots and that’s very dangerous.”

Stephon Marbury has won something. He topped the SI Players Poll in this week's magazine. The question was "Which player would you least like to have on your team?''

Marbury got 22 percent of the vote, winning in a landslide. (Quentin Richardson must have stuffed the ballot box).

Ron Artest was next with 9 percent. Kobe Bryant even made the list, at 5 percent.

リンク: What a Wade! 3-pointer at end lifts Heat - NBA - Yahoo! Sports.

“Mr. Dwyane Tyrone Wade Jr., if he’s not legitimately considered for an MVP candidate, I don’t know what he needs to do,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We are currently a playoff contender and night after night, he’s making incredible plays like this.”

“He comes in every day and says ‘I’m tired, I don’t feel like doing it right now,”’ Beasley said. “If 40 points, 46, 47 points is tired, I’d like to see him fully energized.”

Notes

It was Latin Night—“Noche Latina,” part of the NBA’s annual tribute to fans and players from Latin America and Hispanic cities—Miami wore black uniforms with “El Heat” across the chest. The Heat will wear the jerseys again Saturday at home against Utah

Item #2: Bayless vs. Telfair: A budding rivalry?

As the rest of the media horde listened, people starting trying to guess which player asked, but was not given, Roy's shoes.

"...Sebastian (Telfair)?" came one of the guesses.

"(Bleep) Sebastian," a disgusted voice said nearby.

That voice was Blazers guard Jerryd Bayless, whose locker is next to Roy's.

There were a few "oohs" when he said it, and jokingly I turned to Bayless and said "Quote, unquote", playfully threatening to quote him.

"I don't care,'' Bayless said, cinching up his tie.

Later, I went back to Bayless and made sure I could quote him.

"As long as you don't use the cuss word,'' Bayless said.

Item #1: Parting gifts

Remember earlier this season when I wrote about Martell Webster asking for LeBron James' shoes last season, and how the coaching staff and his teammates rode him unmercifully for doing that during a game?

Well, the only player on the team who vehemently stuck up for Webster was Brandon Roy.

Happens all the time, Roy said. He said opponents ask him for his jersey or signed shoes nearly every game.

So on Saturday night, after Roy scored 31 points to lead the Blazers to a 95-93 win over Minnesota, he came out of the showers and immediately signed his Nike shoes. As he was getting dressed, a clubhouse attendant came over and asked for the shoes.

"They are right there,'' Roy pointed. "But hey, who are they for?''

The clubhouse attendant said he didn't know, only that the request came from the Minnesota locker room.

"Mark Madsen,'' another attendant said. "The shoes are for Mark Madsen.''

Roy looked up at me.

"See. Told you. Every game.''

I said it must not have been during the game - Madsen didn't play - but Roy said he was asked by a Timberwolves player for his shoes during the fourth quarter.

"And it wasn't the player I gave the shoes to, either,'' Roy said.

"There's always got to be an established respect for the coach," Matt Harpring said. "Without that, the inmates would be running the asylum. I guess you can't actually make a guy come off the floor. I don't know …"

Harpring turned to veteran teammate Brevin Knight and asked: "What would you do?"

"If I'm in charge," said Knight, "you get your ass off the court."

"I don't even want to know what would happen if anyone tried that with him," Kyle Korver said. "That only happens when someone thinks they're bigger than everyone and everything else. And that's not going to happen here."

"It wouldn't be pretty," said C.J. Miles, half-laughing, half-shuddering. "You either wouldn't play the rest of the year, or you'd get kicked off the team. And if you didn't come out, he'd probably go out and pull you off the floor."

Said Ronnie Brewer: "You don't really touch a subject like that here. There's too much respect for [Sloan], and for the game. You don't embarrass the coach like that. If you embarrass him, he'll embarrass you. There's too much character on this team for anybody to do that."

"We'd come out," Miles said. "No doubt."

"Wheeeeewww," added Paul Millsap.

"Heckling and having a good time are two different animals," he explained. "I wasn't heckling the President and I don't heckle the players. I talk about their weaknesses. We was having a good time. He was talking trash and I was talking trash. I couldn't believe he was that laidback and real. I loved it."

And while they talked through much of the game, Rawls--who had never met a President--said no lines were crossed. "I wasn't disrespectful," he said. "I know my limits."

"We was just going back and forth," Rawls said. "Once Chicago started coming back, he told me, 'Now I think you need to sit down.' When Tyrus Thomas dunked on somebody, he turned around, was talking smack. Then JaVale McGee had that alley-oop, and he gave me the high five. We was just supporting each others' team, having a good time."

"Where can you do that, sit there and talk smack with the President of the United States face to face?" he asked me. "He's the President, but he's subject to my fun too. I have a no-holds-barred rule."

"But he enjoyed it," Rawls added. "Trust me."

Gデイビス(シャックについて)

Gデイビス
Shaq jokingly calls Davis, who followed in his footsteps at LSU, "my son."

"I was 14 or 15, and I went to his house and I was hanging with Shaq," Davis says. "He says to me, 'Let's go outside and wrestle.' We started wrestling. I pinned him down. He couldn't budge me."

The 7-1, 325-pound O'Neal confirms the story.

"He picked me up and body-slammed me," says Shaq. "That's when I knew he was for real."

Davis and the Celtics recently beat Shaq's Phoenix Suns at the Garden. At one point, Davis planted himself in front of the basket in front of a runaway Diesel to get the charge call.

"I was thinking, 'I'm going to die,' " says Big Baby. "He later told me how proud he was of me. Shaquille and Kevin [Garnett] are my best all-time players. To be on the same team as Kevin Garnett is such a privilege."

Rアーテスト(今年、やっと大人になりました)

Rアーテスト(今シーズンはまじめです)

After several seasons of controversy ranging from legal issues to on-the-court altercations that led to mountains of suspensions, Artest is finally figuring out how to keep his nose clean.

"This is the first season I've had where I can just let the story happen instead of me creating the story," Artest says. "That's been different for me. I can just go out there and play basketball and not worry about how people will look at me after the suspension, or how people will look at me after getting in trouble at practice.

"It's been an adjustment," he admits. "A good adjustment."

The way Artest tells it, his success this season has been all about maturing. "When I was young it was just a new environment and I didn't know how to adapt. I wanted to do things how I was used to doing them, and getting used that was hard.

He adds, "Getting into the NBA I had some coaches, some players, some veterans help me with that. Where LeBron James is at age 23, it took me years and years to get to that point. I wish I could've been like that."

"When we lost when I was in Chicago it did not sit with me well," he recalls. "Now that I'm older, when I lose games I just go to the gym and work out. Before I'd get mad at a coach or a player, or get mad at myself and get frustrated. That just wasn't working."

Now, with Tracy McGrady out, Artest has been pegged as the offensive and defensive heart and soul of the team. This opportunity in Houston has been godsend for him, and he's not lost on valuable this break is.

"I got a lot of second chances," he admits. "That's the good thing about living in America is you get a lot of second chances. I've had five chances, nine lives, more lives than a cat."

Even nine lives run out eventually, though, and Artest explains that he has no desire to push limits anymore. "I don't want to use [those lives]. I don't want to feel like I have the option to use them. I'm a good place right now with my game, my career, my life."

シャック(Dハワードについて)

リンク: Past (Shaquille O'Neal ) and present (Dwight Howard) take center stage tonight at Amway Arena -- OrlandoSentinel.com.

What has Shaq said?

Well, it's all pretty much a variation on the same adolescent theme: I'm the original NBA Superman and Dwight can't carry my, er, cape.

"You know, it's normal for a kid to copycat his idol, but you know he can never be this good," Shaq has said.

Shaq was asked by CBSSports.com's Ken Berger recently if Howard was the closest thing to being the next Shaq. O'Neal scoffed.

"No. Not at all. He's a good player. He can jump. But no," he said. "I was the type of player that they had to have secret meetings and change the rules and do all that. Probably never be another me. He's a good player, but everything he's done, I've invented. So I'm not impressed."

Sports Illustrated asked O'Neal — who sports a Superman tattoo and often wears Superman pajama bottoms to practice — whether Howard's Superman shtick bothered him.

"Doesn't bother me. I can't be impressed by something I invented in '92 [his first year in Orlando]. I mean, you look at what he is doing, I've been there and done that," O'Neal said. "Every street he is driving down in Orlando, I have been on that street. Every nightclub, every restaurant. ... I have been there and done that.

"Until he wins three, four championships, then we can talk about him. But right now, he is just like every other big guy: 'You can run and jump, but you haven't won yet.' "

Ouch. Ouch. And ouch.

After his 45-point game against Toronto on Friday night, O’Neal has consecutive 30-point games for the first time since March 5-7, 2004, when he and Bryant were teammates in Los Angeles.

“It’s what I do,” O’Neal said. “I’ve been doing it since 1992. If you don’t believe it, Google me.”

O’Neal, who turns 37 on Friday, is the fourth player over 35 in NBA history to score at least 33 points in consecutive games. The others are Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Alex English.

“A lot of people thought I lost it,” O’Neal said. “It’s kind of funny to me, when I say ‘I’m injured,’ no one believes me. Last year I was injured and this year I’m feeling pretty good.”

レイカーズ戦で大活躍したことについて、シャック「こんなことは1992年からずっとやってきたことだ。信じられないなら、ググれ。・・・大勢の人が、俺の力が衰えたと思っていた。馬鹿げた考えだ。・・・俺が「怪我をしてるんだ」と言っても誰も信じないんだからな。去年の不調は怪我のせいだった。今年の俺は調子がいい。」

オバマ対ゴードン

リンク: President Obama, Johnny Kerr, Norm Van Lier: Day of reflection for Chicago Bulls -- chicagotribune.com.

Obama cracked a joke about wanting to stand next to the 6-foot-3-inch Gordon during a photo shoot and invited the team back for pickup basketball when he converts an outdoor tennis court.

"I'm just amazed at how personable he is," Gordon said. "He's way above average, but he just seems like an average guy. He made everybody feel comfortable in the room."

Center Brad Miller said he had a red dress shirt sent via overnight mail just so he could break out a red-white-and-blue ensemble for the visit. The players took a tour of the White House that included a stop at the one-lane bowling alley, where guard Derrick Rose said he threw a gutter ball.

"I was too nervous," Rose said.

Hinrich joked about Obama wanting to post up Gordon. Did Gordon talk smack back to the leader of the free world?

"Nah," Gordon said. "I just laughed. It's good to know our president has a sense of humor.

"Plus, he invited us back to the White House, so I didn't need to talk any smack back to him. I'll probably just dunk on him in the summertime to get him back."

オバマがブルズをホワイトハウスに招待した時についての記事より。

・オバマがジョークとして、背の低いベン・ゴードンの横に立ちたがったことについて、ゴードン「別に言い返さなかったよ(笑)俺は笑っただけだ。ユーモアのセンスのある人だってことがわかってよかったよ。ホワイトハウスに招いてくれたんだから悪口なんて言う必要がない。でも夏になったら彼と試合をして、彼の上からダンクしてやり返すよ。」

・ちなみに、オバマはテニスコートをバスケのコートに改修して、ブルズと試合をしたいらしい。

・ついでにボーリングもしたらしい。
