You Just Thought the West was Tough

Did you see the NBA Lottery?

Neither did I. Watching it is the biggest kick in the arse. But I saw the results. And the results weren't pretty.

No, I'm not talking about how Boston and Philadelphia got the shaft in the lottery. After all, I'm not from the East coast so I don't the argument that the NBA NEEDS Boston, Philly, and NY to be good in order to survive. Those teams have history and that's good. But that's it. The NBA seems to being mighty well with the elite teams they have now. Though, if King James wasn't still battling they might be in trouble.

Actually, I'm talking about how Portland and Seattle, two Western Conference teams, hit the lottery and are in position to draft Greg Oden and Kevin Durant. Add in the fact Jermaine O'Neal is like going to LA, and the West just got a whole lot tougher.

And the Mavericks better see this as a challenge. That doesn't mean they should necessarily blow up their roster. After all, they are a year removed from a finals berth. But they must be of one mind in understanding, if they don't address glaring deficiencies, they could fall back in the pack. If that means trading for Portland's third wheel Zah Randolph, then so be it.

Randolph averaged 23 points and 10 rebounds this season and has a well above average post-up game and a perimeter shot to respect. His presence could free up Dirk Nowtizki to do what he does best. He comes with baggage, but so did Rasheed Wallace and Detroit would not have won a title without him. And you tend to think Avery Johnson could mold him into a solid defender.

The good news is the Mavs and Trailblazers are already talking. Now, we'll see if they get a deal done.

If the Spurs lose to Cleveland, the West dominance over the past year will be all for not. Dallas, Phoenix, Spurs, Houston and Utah all dominated Eastern Conference teams and to lose in the finals would be a big blow. I am rooting for King James because I hate the Spurs but it shouldn't have even gotten to this point.

The first was a middle-aged, scholarly http://startso11.info/www.Makxor.html man, who was seated at a table with a Webster's Dictionary and a sheet of paper before him..

No, I said, I would not speak, if ten http://storyah44.info/pwpw.html Governors presided.. What's all this about? http://startso11.info/google+tarnow+pl.html he demanded, roughly.. They were http://startso11.info/embalming.html chatting gaily when the Ellsworths came down the stairs.. The evident determination of Mr. http://startso11.info/google%3Bpl.html. In the dream, however, my wife is http://startso11.info/mutacja+genu+hemoglobiny.html replaced by the unfamiliar E.. One is inclined to believe that the final picture of the dream is so strong that http://rebestal.info/cz%C4%99%C5%9Bci+do+maszyn+szyjacych.html it forces the dreamer to awaken; but, as a matter of fact, this picture is strong only because the dreamer is already very near awakening when it appears.. There was no one in Washington to whom the Major's scruples allowed him to http://startso11.info/gatunki+grzyb%C3%B3w+w+szwecji.html apply for a loan.. Suppose he had laid on the card and asked for Miss Claiborne! What's the matter, Champe? http://startso11.info/korespondencja+masowa.html inquired Ross, in a fairly natural tone.. Another manifestation of the dream work which all incoherent dreams have http://rebestal.info/chrom.com.pl.html in common is still more noticeable.. Every possible case of detention from consciousness, as well as of http://startso11.info/www.nasza-klasa%2F%2Fschool.pl.html penetration to consciousness, under restriction is found included within the picture of the psychoneurotic phenomena; every case points to the intimate and twofold connection between the censor and consciousness.. Nancy's red an' the hat's red; like goes http://startso11.info/hail+mi+isten.html with like, an' birds of a feather flock together.. I--er--will, said the Colonel, almost as http://rebestal.info/rfm+fm.html breathlessly.. The undisguised wish dreams were chiefly found in children, yet fleeting open-hearted wish dreams seemed (I purposely http://startso11.info/www.freeos.pl.html emphasize this word) to occur also in adults.. That was a miracle, interrupted Prue. http://startso11.info/mirka.html. The beast he bestrode responded with a rapid whisking of its tail and a great show of effort, as it ambled off down the sandy road, the rider's long legs seeming now and then http://rebestal.info/dodatki+do+stron+www.html to touch the ground.. But it is a much abused privilege of the conscious activity http://startso11.info/dorvita.html that it is allowed to hide from us all other activities wherever it participates.. He seemed to feel that some sort of explanation was looked for, and he was http://rebestal.info/ciemi%C4%85czko.html very outspoken...
