I would love the opportunity to express my dissatisfaction here, and get my money back. I'm guessing the chance of that happening here is about zero percent. I think people here would get their money back and then wonder why there shouldn't be a little extra on top. I mean we aren't going to get those hours back.

This is a really good point.

Players/teams become obsessed with shooting 3s to the point that I believe it's one of the main culprits of 'killing' the Centre position

Now, the post up and kick out has been around forever but it only exists because of the play. It worked because you needed a legit post presence. Today, all the C really needs to be is a really smart passer and kick it out the wing (hence the rise in the usefulness of the SF/SG/PG.)

I'd like to see ball movement return and less teams settling for 3s. I remember the early Celtics teams of the 2000s prided themselves on shooting a ton of 3s. They were NEVER fun to watch.

It's amazing how good Felton looks when guys can knock down open shots.... We should have signed Novak instead of Fields.... Novak is boss.

He thrives playing in New York. The last couple years when he's played elsewhere he's average at best. His two stints in NY have been impressive.

you live by the 3, you die by the 3.

I'm curious as to how much money PHX lost last night, and what kind of parametres apply when trying to get your money back. Do you have to call in and list at least 3 things you werent satisfied with and then you get your money back? Or just call in and say I went to the game, I'll send you my ticket, we lost, give me my money?

i heard it was win or lose - if you arent satisfied, you can get your money back.
so i'm guessing since it was a loss - 90% of people will want a refund.
i assume you have to go to the arena's box office to get the money. meaning most people wont want to drive all the way back there to do it.

I feel that same way.

The other thing that you have to think about is how the ball moved and how unpredictable NYK's offense was with Melo out of the lineup.

From what I gather, you have to fill out a questionaire to get your money back.

In other news, I haven't gotten a reply to my email from TSN. audience relations my ass.

Hopefully the 4thQ of LAL and OKC is interesting. I'll be tuning in right after the Raps game.

Lance Stephenson is a great defender but makes terrible decisions with the basketball. Paul George has so much confidence in his 3 point shot right now: it's the opposite of the playoffs last summer.

The Nuggets haven't looked that good (Gallinari makes me wonder if there's some common issue amongst the Italians) but Andre Miller has been huge in the 4th.

Back to back air balls for Boston. Somebody should shut those windows in Philly.
