Before all my loyal viewers start complaining about a lack of posts (you know I get at least 50 emails a week from you all!), fine, I'll get a couple updates up (though I wish there was a way to keep this at the top of the page.....Though it may stay there depending on how long my basketball hiatus is after the result of the 2012 finals......).
Anyway....I will be getting a post up soon, and I have one other question:
Anybody with any ideas on how to rate players defensively would you please stand up, and/or shoot me an email ( email@example.com ).....Anybody interested in a basketball rating project, or any programmers (in Python......aka the programing middle of nowhere) would be appreciated.......That's right, an announcement that follows will be BIG (god I hate those commercials....Except the Celtics one.)
(16) 1985 Los Angeles
Clippers (31-51) vs. (27) 2003 Los Angeles Clippers (27-55)
This is a pretty good matchup…As a refresher, read this: First year in LA! Derek Smith had 22-5-3,
Marques Johnson (who came over for Terry Cummings) had 16-6, and Norm Nixon had
17-3-9. Bill Walton actually played 67 games, averaging 10-9…he’s gone by next
Nobody played a full
year here…Brand (19-11), and Maggette (17-5) both played in only the 60 game
range. Lamar Odom (15-7-4, who leaves for Miami after the year) played less
than 50 games. Andre Miller though played 80 and had 14-4-7.” Looks like a
pretty good matchup from that. Then add in the fact that Game One was a game
for the ages (kind of).
(19) 1977 Buffalo
Braves (30-52) vs. (24) 2004 Los Angeles Clippers (28-54)
Clippers fans may be thinking that “yay, we get to see
McAdoo”…well you WOULD…but he played only 20 games due to being traded. Only 8
players are eligible for this team…we may have some weird lineups in Buffalo…
The moment you’ve ALL been waiting for! The LOS! ANGELES!
To begin, the 1975 Buffalo Braves get a first round
bye…Let’s jump right in!
(21) 1990 Los Angeles
Clippers (30-52) vs. (22) 1996 Los Angeles Clippers (29-53)
Does it get any better? 30 wins and 29 wins! Let’s battle to
the death! (I feel sorry for 1990…no Ron Harper….They suck!). (By the way…Bison
Dele is known as Brian Williams.
We’re treated to a thriller of a finish…Before you find out
who won, I’ll give you a quick play by play. 1990 starts the 4th
quarter down 10. 1996’s lead hovers around 10-12. After 5 straight points by
Danny Manning, it’s a 6 point game, but Lamond Murray hits a jumper with 8:20
left to make it 8. Then they look to rally back, as Tom Garrick hits a shot,
then assists on a three from Ken Norman in the corner.
It's been a long time been a long time been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time! As you may have read, my computer woes seem unsolvable, so we are going to be posting in a sub par format...Sorry....I blame the computer. One idea I'm also looking to do is to expand this blog so it includes some other of my interests, with little special articles now and then, on stuff like music, or football or whatever. Anyone (is there anybody out there? Only I can quote Pink Floyd and Zeppelin in the same paragraph...) like that idea? Anyway....On to the matchup! (One plus...these will be coming out faster without me having to format them.).
I had finally gotten the boxes to post...Of course, two days or so after, I manage to contract a computer virus. So I ended up getting a new laptop, and I transfered my files over (carefully....so far my new computer is good). Of course, when I try to get the Word on the computer so I can actually USE the documents, the site is down for around a week. During that week I realize that this computer does NOT have spreadsheet....I haven't really messed around with Excel yet...We can hope though...
Anyway though, I should be able to get SOMETHING up soon....Thanks to my avid followers for sticking with me (all zero of you)...
