Heat @ Lakers, 2p

The super-hyped matchup between Matt Barnes and James Jones is finally upon us. What a Christmas present, indeed; I believe the MSM is calling this the "Collision Corpses", but I'm a little confused why they're tapping into the necrophiliac demographic like that. I believe there are a couple of other supporting cast players that may contribute a bit to scoring in today's game, but this Barnes/Jones showdown definitely sounds intriguing.

Hey, don't cut necrophilia until you've tried it.

The only gift I want this Christmas is Kobe bitch slapping Lebron back to South Beach.

Steve Sax said...

I don't know, Dusty. That's not the kind of stiffy I'm hoping for.

Kyle Baker said...

I want to see Phil Jackson posting up on Lebron's old mammy in the locker room.

spank said...

I want to go one on one and slam dunk Jeannie Buss.

Fisher
Bryant
Artest
Odom
Gasol

Even on a commercial, Brent Musburger is insufferable.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh joy. I get to listen to Jeff Van Gundy for the first time since Game 7. I've so been looking forward to this.

Kyle Baker said...

I'm opting for the mute and to listen to my father in law.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Less than two minutes into the game, and already two Kobe-to-LO slams.

Kyle Baker said...

Ron Ron with two early fouls. But I like the way we're playing. Confident.

Kyle Baker said...

Chris Bosh is one ugly bastard.

Kyle Baker said...

What does Kobe have to do to get a foul call?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That was an ugly couple of possessions.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't know why it's taken the Lakers so long to go to Bynum. He has a significant advantage over Dampier, healthy or not.

Kyle Baker said...

Your comment was underscored by that last sequence.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

They have to blur one of the Lakers' banners on that Karl Malone Sketchers commercial.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm not getting these Cosmopolitan commercials. So if I go to that hotel, I get to see small animals leave an elevator?

Kyle Baker said...

Does anyone know another soul who has actually ever gotten a Lexus as a surprise Xmas gift?

Kyle Baker said...

Still trying to comprehend those commercials. Not sure what I'm supposed to buy. Rabbit food?

Kyle Baker said...

We're playing like a bunch of schoolgirls now. Shooting minus 27 percent at home? Lame. I waited for months for this?

Kyle Baker said...

A very wise 78-foot try from Kobe on that sequence.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'll come right out and say it: That commercial with Wade was funny.

Kyle Baker said...

Yeah, that one was good. Certainly leaps better than surly hippie flautists.

Kyle Baker said...

Break Superintendent Chalmers' fuckin arm already!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Pau's first make comes on a put-back after Odom draws the foul. At least he put the ball in the basket.

spank said...

I want to go one on one and slam dunk Jeannie Buss.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's like Breen has to remind Jackson and Van Gundy that the Lakers' defense has been good too. All of the focus is on the Lakers' bad shooting.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That would make a great Jeff Van Gundy voodoo doll. I'll have my people call Aubrey Huff's people.

Steve Sax said...

Are the Lakers going to show up here?

Steve Sax said...

Big headed basketball players. Brilliant.

Who needs ad agencies when you've got Mrs. Davey's third grade class giving you ideas?

Steve Sax said...

Well, at least it was close.

Steve Sax said...

Opening lines of tomorrow's Plaschke article:

They had more heart.

They heard the hype and didn't give in.

They went to a hostile court and kept the crowd silent throughout.

They played like champions.

The Miami Heat showed the Lakers what winning is all about,...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That didn't go well. Eh, they lost badly last Christmas to LeBron too, so it means about as much as you want it to.

Steve Sax said...

Nice Christmas wake-up call, eh?

Steve Sax said...

Sax has moved to the Oban. This is going to be good.

Good, as in, something incredibly awesome, something incredibly fascinating, or a mixture of both?

Kyle Baker said...

Dusty has moved to the Manhattans. Mmmmmmmmm.....

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SC: yesssssssss

Steve Sax said...

This has been a thoroughly satisfying Christmas. Rain, F' you.

Kyle Baker said...

Great thing about baseball...sitting around on Xmas night with the fam looking up box scores for WS 1988 and getting all nostalgic. So glad to have married into a True Blue family. *throws LA sign*

(Manhattan coma)

spank said...

What do you have to do to get a shot up in dis bish? Run Nekked with a trout?

Paul said...

Just had some cognac that tasted like cough syrup...nothing gold can stay.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Crap, I'm already down 60 to nothing? Fucking early games.
