The NBA last night

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

In jumping-the-gun news

Well, it turns out I opened my mouth, figuratively, before I looked up the facts. It seems I misheard a Sportscenter announcer and wrote yesterday that the Suns had already swept the West on the road, when, in fact, they still had to make it through Philadelphia last night. Looking at it again, it’s fairly obvious my words jinxed the Suns, a similar that my Shaun White article had for the X games. What is most shocking about this turn of events is the fact that the Suns, who many will pick to win it all, couldn’t take care of a team that had dealt their, by far, best player away in hopes of tanking the season for a shot at Oden or Durant. People shouldn’t be too confident in the Suns now.

Vegas backlash

After reports of shootings, violence and other crimes in Las Vegas over all-star weekend, Tracy McGrady has come forward and said that he would consider skipping next year’s all-star game in New Orleans if he didn’t feel safe. T-Mac, who is perennially voted to play in said game, may be onto something considering how the all-star festivities are scheduled to take place mere days before Mardi Gras. It will be very interesting to see if any other stars who are guaranteed to be voted to the Big Easy take up a similar stance to McGrady.
