Last Night at KeyArena

posted by on March 22 at 10:13 AM

With the clock ticking down to zero, Jillbert drove the lane with 3 Sonics hanging all over him, and banked in a lay-up, dropping the ball through the hoop to win the game just as time expired and the backboard lit up to signal the end of play.

Then he took off his shirt and laid it on the floor. Total dose. He scored 42 overall. I don’t think the family sitting next to me liked me very much.


P.S. Oh, and my other favorite part of the game was this: Jill was mad at the ref after getting called for a foul, and so on the next play, he dribbled down the court, stopped at the 3-point line and netted a jump shot. Then he turned and glared at the ref. The guy sitting next to me freaked. “Did you see that? Did you see that? Give him a technical! Give him a technical! Man, they let Arenas get away with everything.” Well, no. Arenas had just been called for a foul two seconds earlier. In fact, Jillbert played with 5 fouls throughout most of the 4th—making his 4th quarter show all the more impressive.

Wait, that pic has been photoshopped. The shirt is too big for his body. It's probably Cee-Lo.

Yep thats a big accomplishment beating the Soops. Man, an NIT team can beat the Soops these days.

One step closer to Kevin Durant.

Maybe I'm just being dense (wouldn't be the first time), but Josh, why do you say the family next to you didn't like you? Were you cheering for the Wizards?

So Josh,

What percentage of your ticket cost went to support groups that are against gay marriage?

Just Me,

since the Supes are losing money these days, it seems that opponents of marriage equality partially subsidized Josh's seat.

He's a tool.

poor rashard lewis--he made those two free throws just like he should have, but in doing so he set gil the assassin up perfetly for another game winner. and josh, i gotta say that i love that gil's winning shot was a drive to the basket. we could all use a little more inside action from agent zero.

I'm with Josh.

Note the excessive number of turnovers the Soops have committed lately. They should be better.

Note that the Wiz got offensive rebounds. The Soops should be better.

Note the poor late game performances. How's the coaching from Boob Hill or star leadership of Lewis? In the possession before his two made freethrows, Lewis over dribbled and was called for a charge. During the course of the game, Lewis did not expend much energy defending his man Jamison, who has plenty of offensive fire power.

The Soops have been in decline since Antonio Daniels and Nate McMillan left. Daniels played a heady game for the Wiz. He passed and defended well and made his first two shots. In 2005, Nate had Daniels run the team in the fourth quarters.

I'm starting to come around, Feit. Big 0 is playing like a legend these days.
