On Vince Carter, Allen Iverson And The 2001 NBA Playoffs

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/on-the-nba-playoffs-and-its-glamour-teams"> So far, the 2011 NBA Playoffs have been a gargantuan sized melting pot of WTF. First, the Grizzlies fooled everyone into thinking they were an eight seed and then knocked off the top ranked San Antonio (Geritol) Spurs. Secondly, Chris Paul had New Orleans momentarily ready to shock the world. He was later seen courtside at a Heat game sporting a Yankees fitted causing Knicks fans nationwide to gush with premature joy. Third, the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers find themselves looking disaster in the pupils because of their current 0-2 series disadvantages. And on top of all that, bin Laden <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/osama-bin-laden-is-dead-obama-says">kicked the bucket</a>.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/video-lebron-james-dunks-on-othyus-jeffers"> Heading into Game 2, gauging the tone for the Miami/Philly series was still unclear. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/miami-heat">The Heat</a> were obviously the more talented team, but the Sixers were young, vibrant, led by a great head coach in Doug Collins and, in essence, playing with house money.

Dwight Howard Dunks In Boring Game

By

As the Orlando Magic close out their woefully inconsistent regular season, the team's main concern remains Dwight Howard's fondness of technical fouls and Gilbert Arenas' love of being paid $20 million to be horrendous.

Jrue Holiday Could Use A Vacation

<a href="http://www.edthesportsfan.com/2011/04/todays-obituaries-jrue-holiday-1990.html"> Either that or Dwight Howard is just a big bully. I'll usually drop qualifying statements about Jrue at this juncture of the post before I get to the point. This time's obviously different. "Wrong place, wrong time" is an understatement on this play even though he "tried" to stop the oop. All I can say is he's a braver soul than me. I'd probably pull a hot Amar'e sidestep shuffle and act like Howard wasn't my assignment. Howard's onslaught at the rim jump-started a 21-4 run in Orlando's favor. The Magic utilized that surge and capped things off with a 95-85 dub over Philly. Orlando, despite their standing, could be a problem in the playoffs and Superman looks uncharacteristically out for blood. Philly, in the meantime, ought to look forward to finishing the season strong on Wednesday with Miami serving as their first round opponents. It's unfair... © Terrell Owens Related: <a href="http://www.edthesportsfan.com/2011/04/todays-obituaries-jrue-holiday-1990.html">Today's Obituaries - Jrue Holiday (1990-2011) [ETSF]</a>.
