NBA Studs & Duds 1/29

Last night there were a bunch of games that just weren’t that interesting. The Pacers narrowly got by the Bucks, the Heat beat my Wiz, the Knicks beat the Hawks, the Pistons beat the Wolves, the Hornets beat the Nuggets, the Mavs beat the Warriors, the Blazers beat the ‘Cats, and the Bulls beat the Sixers. Now on to games that were good. The Kings lost to the Celtics because Eddie House decided that now it was time to never miss a shot, Stud of the Day KD led his team past the Grizz, Devin Harris hit a game winner with 37 secs left as they sent the Raptors packing, and that’s pretty much it. Lists and top 10 after the jump. Continue reading


Who Should Be The All Star Reserves? GITC Has The Answers.


azallstargamelogo1The All Star Reserves will be named tonight on TNT at 7:00pm EST during the pre-game show. There are two sets of criteria; their’s and mine. I differ to that of the NBA first because, well, it’s their league. So, here are the NBA’s criteria:

1. Not one of the starters.
2. Must have at least 2 guards, 2 forwards, and 1 center.

These are pretty self-explanitory. You can’t be a reserve if you’re a starter. There must be a second starting five and then two guys of any position. OK, now my criteria.

1. I don’t care of you play for a bad team, this is about individual preformance.
2. I do care how much time you missed, if any. No guys who’ve played 20 games.
3. I do care what position you actually play. If I had voted the starters I wouldn’t use 2 PF’s for the 2 F spots, I’d use a SF and a PF.

Those seem pretty obvious as well. So hit the jump to see my lists as well as short explanations for the selections. Continue reading

NBA Studs & Duds 1/28

Win and Lakers loss.

Reason for laughter: Best record in the NBA. Reason for that: Win and Lakers loss.

Only five games in the NBA last night. That there may be the minimum for this column to run, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a good batch of Studs and Duds. In fact, the numbers put up by the guys on the lists today would hit the lists a normal twelve game slate. Let’s get started. The Cavs beat the Kings because Stud LeBron and Stud of the Day MoWill were better than Stud Kevin Martin. The Magic beat up on the Pacers behind Stud Mickael Pietrus who came of the bench and on to the roster for this game after being injured for a bunch of weeks. The Nuggets topped the Grizzlies behind their new coach. I could tell you who the new Grizzlies coach is, but you don’t care. The Spurs beat the Jazz in a close one despite the play of Dud of the Day Michael Finley. And the Bobcats topped the Lakers, again. That’s five of six now for the ‘Cats and this time they won in L.A. despite the play of Stud Kobe Bryant in two overtimes. Kobe did foul out during the second OT on a weak call, but the Bobcats played so well in that period it may not have mattered. Check after the jump for the lists and the top 5 video (because of the smaller slate). Continue reading

NBA Studs and Duds 1/27

Chris Paul! How do you feel about being near a quadruple double?

Chris Paul! How do you feel about being near a quadruple double?

This may sound strange, but I think today’s Studs are the Studliest Studs of the season so far. 3 of them are All Star starters and the other two will surely make the game as well. On to the games… The Suns beat my Wiz in what was essentially a two on two battle. Unfortunately, Stud Shaq and Stud Amare are on the Stud list and Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison just missed it. That means the Suns come out on top. Stud Dwyane Wade led the Heat past the Hawks as the struggles of Joe Johnson continue. Doesn’t that sound like a sitcom? “Next week on The Struggles of Joe Johnson… Joe loses his job because he is late to work due to a car accident which sets off a chain reaction leading to an emotional break up.” Anyway, The Knicks knocked off the Rockets as they struggle to keep everyone on the court. Stud of the Day CP3 almost quadruple-doubled his way past the Sixers, and Stud Brandon Roy beat up the Clips. Full lists and video of top 10 plays after the jump. Continue reading

NBA Studs & Duds 1/26

Stud of the Day Nene.

First his name was two words. Then it was one. Now it's five: Stud of the Day Nene.

Last night in the NBA the Celtics tried to prove they are still the team on top. They attempted this by beating the Mavs 124-100 behind Studs Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen. The Lakers had a pretty good handle on the Spurs in LA. The Suns went into Atlanta and beat the Hawks as Joe Johnson continues to struggle and Shaq continues to shine. The Rockets dodged a buzzer beater attempt as the Pistons continue to falter. Iverson (a guy who will be a top 10 NBA scorer before his career is over) didn’t play a minute of the 4th quarter on a team that needs scoring every night and scored 19 points in that quarter. Their coach, needless to say, is a moron. The T’Wolves held off the Bulls 109-108 in overtime. Nobody scored in the last 41 seconds of this game by the way. That’s pathetic. The Nuggets managed to blow away the Jazz due to a perfect night by Stud of the Night Nene. Full lists and top 10 plays are after the jump. Please watch top 10, if only for the sick dunk where Josh Smith makes Steve Nash look like a little girl. Continue reading

The Morning After: January 26, 2009

The Morning AfterThere are those of us who will say there were no sports to speak of this weekend. I have several links to prove you wrong. You may look at these links and say to me that the links I provided were largely linked to sports that no one talks about. If I look at the weekend traffic here at Sparty and Friends and compare it to those weekends when we had college football as well as “paid to play” football games on from sun up to sun down – I would largely have to agree with you.

So for all of the tormented souls out there who didn’t get their sports fix this weekend… let me be the first to welcome you to Super Bowl Week. You get your fill of the biggest event in sports on tap for the next 150 hours or so before kick off. More on this in a little while after the jump… Continue reading
