i watched a lot of basketball over the last few weeks
i especially enjoyed the march madness
only got one of the final four teams right
and didnt pick the winner
miami didnt make it

maybe ill just keep that miami choice for the nba championship game

sure enjoyed watching louisville play
that up tempo pressing game that you dont see as much as you
use to
ala razorbacks with rollin nolen when he won the whole thing
years ago then couldnt keep his mouth shut and got fired

the louisville guards were worth watching
it was amazing how they seemed to at will go through all the other
teams defense and seemed to score at will
those little guys didnt seem to get their shots blocked a lot

it also helped to have the big guy in the back to swat away balls
and play defense and to score when needed

yep those 3 will do well in the nba

then connecticut women are such a young team but they won
(so texas mens basketball that aint an excuse-a young team)
think dino is a good coach
its scary for the other teams as they will have the same team for the
next few years
especially now that brittany is out of the way

then in the nba ive been following the lakers all year and listening to
all the trash talk by the sports gods who said that the lakers would
have a losing team and wont make the playoffs

ticked kobe off is what they did
he was really kicking butt until last week when that pop happened
that achilles tendon sound

not sure how he was able to shoot the free throws afterwards

a few years ago while playing softball while rounding 3rd base i heard
that pop and watched as my foot seemed to dangle and wouldnt
respond to my trying to run
i did score however

two months on crutches then since that time my calf on that size is smaller
than the other
theres a long scar up my ankle where the achilles tendon is
i cant jump very high well i cant jump period
i cant run well either limited by that old achilles tendon tear

now kobe had his repaired and will start rehabbing it when he gets off crutches
will he loose calf mass
loose his ups
lose his burst of speed

i hope he does a better job of rehabbing than i did
if he doesnt
his career is over

sometimes its over anyway with an achlles injury
you lose a lot of the advantage you have over the other players
except of course
that will and determination he seems to have
it will tell

lakers will lose all their playoff games without kobe

then i watch the spurs
they just plod along and nobody notices they are there
then bam like emeril
they are in the playoffs and in the contention for the final game

go spurs go
like i said at the beginning
its miami winning it all

      I remember those days Doc! I was a little Stephens girl that watched you play.

  2. If my memory serves me correct that softball achilles injury was more than "just a few years ago".. :)
