With the exception of the Bulls-Celtics series, the rest of the '09 NBA Playoffs have been completely unwatchable (and even the Bulls-Celtics is a tough sell with the TV networks highlighting every Garnett F-bomb). The Hornets lost to Denver 121-63 a few days ago. Brutal. Just go ahead and call me when LeBron and Kobe meet in the finals. Until then, here is an amusing Playoff entry from SI's Scott Howard-Cooper.
It's foolish to put too much stock in one quote after one game, especially a game with the emotions of a season-ending defeat, but just try disregarding the Jerry Sloan assessment of Utah reserve point guard Ronnie Price in the televised news conference Monday.
[But that would be foolish!]
"I've never seen a guy play that hard in my life in that situation," the Jazz coach said.
It's Sloan, the most anti-hyperbole guy in the NBA and possibly the world, so: Wow.
[The most anti-hyperbole guy in THE WORLD.
Wow is right.]
