I agree...everything is going bad for them, great for us, and the one chance we can get distance isn't going to happen.

Chicago and Washington are both losing.

04-06-2005, 07:55 PM
I could see it a thousand times, I love to see Reg release the three with someone in his face. He's amazing.

How do you like the NBA's commercial about Lebron? Is the king ready to be crowned? I think not.

Carlisle - "best coach in the league" Yeah baby - Props to Rick.

DALE!

Pacers seem to have been pretty much shut out of commercials since the brawl. Even in the ones with tons of clips from all the teams. Course, they were never a very popular commercial team to begin with, so that didn't help much.

Exactly. Reggie and the team should have their own commercial.
"Reggie Miller, in his final season, can he take it all the way..."

Traylor has a naughty mouth. Twice.

They really are pretty bad on offense. They have no one to score the ball

GO!!!!!

The Magic are now tied with the Bulls after having what a 15 point lead?

Scoreboard watch...

Bulls/Magic are tied at the half
Bucks lead Celtics by 2 at halftime
Pistons are up 9 on the Wizards in the 1st

BostonConnection

Just caught the last couple of minutes on ESPN, including the steal by Reggie off LeBron. Anyone else notice how James didn't even bother to chase after a 39 year old player on the fast break? :hmm:

Foster really has great hands.

Peck can talk about how bad Foster's post D is, but I say he makes up for it by the way he shuts down the passing lanes.
