The Downbeat - 22 January 2009 - #150 - The Sesquicentdunkial Edition

1_medium So I look through all of the photos after games for my recaps and it's funny to see all of the pained reactions on the players' faces when they're driving or getting fouled.

It's too bad we don't have the same thing for our workplaces.  When you're crunching numbers in Excel, or stuck in traffic, or trying to come up with stuff for the DB.  I wonder if we have the same pained expressions.  Maybe I need to hire a photographer to capture me blogging.

2_medium Here's CJ's latest creation.  Sounds like he's just providing the laughs in the background.  There's PG-13 language (sh&*, one F word, and the N-word)

8_medium Now that Nash is in, Deron likely will be in.  There's still a chance he gets snubbed for Billups.  With Roy hurting, I wonder if he doesn't play because of his hammy.

However he gets in, I just want him to get in.  It seems like once you're in, you're in for life.  We'll have some perennials that will be leaving soon and so there should be some openings.

At this point, I want him to get in just so that it's done.  We don't have to talk about it any more.  And if Chris Paul could move to an EC team in a couple of years, that would be fantastic.

So if Deron does get snubbed, how will he play?  Hulk angry or frustrated?  Poll below.

4_medium  Looks like Stockton and Malone will be Hall of Famers twice over.  They're set to be enshrined as part of the original Dream Team.  That's right, Christian Laettner and Chris Mullin will get into the HOF.

In addition to Malone, Scottie Pippen will be enshrined twice that day.

5_medium I'll be at the NJ game in all my green and yellow jersey glory tomorrow night provided we don't get 50 feet of snow overnight.

I really hope the Jazz don't lay an egg with this one because I would hate to have to burn my new jersey (get it?  huh?).
