Got myself tickets to the Bulls v Trailblazers in Chicago March 16th!
Hopefully the bulls are all fit so i can see them in full flow, D. Rose has to play at least
Sweet, have you ever been to an NBA game before.
yep, I saw the bulls playing the Wizards last March, wasnt really any sort of a contest. We were standing up at the very back, got seats this time albeit on the upper level
Yeah I was lucky enough to plan my 2010 holiday to Boston the same week as the finals game 5. Managed to get tickets through a relative that lives over there. It was boss even though my Lakers lost
deadly, id say the atmosphere for the playoffs, let alone the final is amazing! It was a bit mute the game i was at last year except for the odd few moments. I think when Aretha Franklin was leaving the arena and she came up on the big screen she got the biggest ovation of the night
Bulls seemed to be doing their best to lose that until they woke up in the last minute and a half!
Yeah it was fairly electric alright. Made the big mistake of wearing my Lakers jersey but once the people around me realised i wasn't from L.A (apparently my see through skin wasn't enough) they were fairly sound.
ha, ye i found the americans to have a bit of banter with the opposition fans. I was at a Chicago Cubs baseball game a few years ago, can't remember who they were playing but there was a guy sitting in the bleachers in a Chicago White Sox jersey and there was just loads of friendly banter, imagine if it was a guy in a man united jersey sitting in the kop at anfield....
Good win again last night for the Knicks, albeit against an awful cavs team, they are looking good for a playoff spot probably 7th... At the start of the season, they just didnt have the depth, there was no point guard, and they were relying too much on Anthony and Stoudemire... But with the acquisition of J.R Smith, Baron getting healthy, Lin running the offense and Novak hitting big 3's they look like a nice team. If they can just improve defensively, Chandler is helping in that respect then they could be darkhorses I think
Philadelphia 76ers are dark horses this year IMO, they have won the most games so far this season by a 20+ margin, Andre Iguodala definitley worthy of his all star call up!
Cant argue that they are contenders, Iggy has been nothing short of outstanding, and is in the running for defensive P.O.Y.
Serious displays by Rondo and Kobe today!
Rondo with 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists, completely controlled the game, would scored more if he got more favourable rolls! Really gave Lin a lesson, he had more turnovers than assists, and some stupid shots in OT to go 1-7...extremely costly!
Kobe was just Kobe! He can say he had no grudge bout Wade breaking his nose but basically beat them on his own in the 1st quarter! Wade fouling out was a big help to the Lakers in holding them off, but the fact he fouled out shows how Kobe got him in bother!
Yeah, what was that critics were saying about this being the year "Kobe stopped being Kobe"?
overtime in detroit, kobe with the buzzer beater to tie things up, calm as ever
And straight back to taking low percentage shots in OT!
