Lakers Hire Mike Brown

And the Lakers hire Mike Brown after Phil Jackson retires.
Maybe Lebron will come to LA. Hah!

Thunder vs Mavericks, Heat vs Bulls

Again, if you've been watching the NBA playoffs then you know the main difference between these two match-ups. Despite Dallas' prime defense today, the Western Conference Finals definitely are more of a shootoff, while the Eastern Conference packs in the paint and stacks up the defense.

Dirk's 24 for 24 from the line in game 1 was pretty ridiculous. 48 points on 12 of 15 shooting is almost unheard of. And Durant had 40, but Westbrook just couldn't land a field goal shooting just 3 of 15.

And in the Heat/Bulls series, Lebron just needs to take off. I know no one can compare to the D Rose contortions but Lebron can definitely drive just as hard which would open up other players.

And Chris Bosh just needs to quit being such a velociraptor.

Make that 4-0. Dallas finishing up the sweep today. Pretty classy play by Odom and Bynum though. Sheesh.

The Dallas Mavericks.

3-0'ing the Lakers?
And just before the series started, I was talking to a buddy about the Mavs maybe getting swept up. Damn, what a turn around.

And that Derrick Rose performance was certainly MVP-esque.

NBA Playoffs and a quick song.

I'd love to see the Thunder and the Bulls in the championship. The Durant/Westbrook combo vs Mr. MVP Derrick Rose would just be too exciting. The Heat and Lakers are also very prime contenders, and are probably the two teams that seem to "need" this years championship. It could be Phil Jackson's last season, and another 3-peat for him would make a Hall of Fame coach even more special. Kobe wants to match Jordan. The Heatles are extremely hungry. Who will win it? I guess we just have to wait and see how everything pans out.

And for the song, some relatively new Mac Miller-

NBA and the Masters

Just going to post some NBA post-season predictions along with some thoughts on the Masters.

Western Conference Finals- Lakers over Spurs in 6 (Even though I know seedings aren't set right now)
Wild card- Thunder. Who knows how they will pan out when playoffs come along. They closed out as best as possible against the Lakers last night, lets see if they can carry it over.
Eastern Conference Finals- Bulls over Heat in 7.
I think this one is pretty set in stone, the Celtics seem like they are crumbling a bit since the trade and whatnot and Rondo has just not been playing up to par. If Rondo has a good game, and they are playing defense like they were pre-Allstar break (even though no Perkins now), then the C's are pretty unbeatable.

Now for the Masters: I just wish Tiger had won this one. I want to see him hop back up and start dominating again. After the front 9 yesterday, he looked like he had his old swag back, and everyone was getting pumped. Although no one will really complain about par-ing the back 9 of Augusta, we all know Tiger could have taken it home.

And on a final note, D Rose for MVP. Yep.

Double Dose: Opening Day and a song.

Today was another big day in professional sports; it was Opening Day for the MLB. It was the day the seasons officially started and is a day many baseball fans look forward too. Unfortunately, the Giants lost to the Dodgers, but it was still a day that lived up to the hype. The only question I have is why were the Giants playing away? They won the World Series this past year; the least the league could do was give them a home game on Opening Day.

And on another note, for all you music fans, here is some Curren$y. This song is one of my current favorites.
