The Good and the Bad

Well Michigan basketball took care of business at home last night dominating Minnesota from the get go. Nice to see the team get another W under their belt and we will need two more W's to make the tourney, one in the regular season and one in the conference tourney, anything more than that would just be gravy. Dion and Lester did not play again but Dion says he might be able to go on Saturday up at the Breslin Center. Not expecting much for that game, just hope we don't get blown out of the water.

Now to the bad, the Lakers and their pathetic performance last night. Any hope I had for them is fading and fading fast. They blew anohter game they shouldn't have as the lowly Atlanta Hawks came into Staples and left with a win. The same Hawks which were 4-20 on the road coming in and had not won a road game against a Western Conference opponent since early last year at New Orleans, and they're not even a real Western team since they just moved over not too long ago.

The Lakers just got outhustled throughout the game and were fucking lazy. Kobe missed a ridiculous amount of FT's and now we ride into the All Star Break with a great deal of confidence with the 3-7 mark in the last 10 games. The only positive from this game was watching Ronny Turiaf on the sidelines standing up and trying to get the crowd involved towards the end of the game. I love his enthusiasm for the game and his team and am glad to have him a part of our squad. However, this team cannot go on in this form and a trade must be made. I can only hope the players takea good hard look at themselves and their lack of effort last night and get it turned around after the break because there is no excuse for this team to miss the playoffs even if we don't make a move.
