Today’s halfman award nominee- Kurt Warner

29 01 2010

Today’s halfman award nominee is Kurt Warner.  Warner retired today after a what most consider to be a hall of fame career.  Warner’s rise to prominence is the ultimate underdog story, he went from grocery clerk to Super Bowl champion in the blink of an eye.  As long as Warner doesn’t pull a Brett Favre, I tip my cap to Kurt Warner.  Warner has been nothing, but a class act on and off the field and he is today’s halfman award nominee.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-Lebron James

29 01 2010

Now we know that Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers will rarely qualify for a halfdog nomination, so when he does, we have to jump on it.   Lebron was fined 25k yesterday for simply kicking a water bottle.  Apparently the water bottle hit a fan, hence the fine.  Even though the money doesn’t matter to Lebron, it seems like it’s a pretty steep fine for the action.   For once, we were all witness to Lebron being, well, a little less than superhuman.

Today’s halfman award nominee- Terrence Williams

28 01 2010

Today’s halfman award nominee is Terrence Williams.  The Nets picked up a win last night, they’re 4-40 now and Williams only contributed nine points.  Four Williams points came via some ridiculous dunks, if you don’t believe me take a look at the videos on NBA.com.  I know the NBA is having a dunk-off to get into the Slam Dunk Contest and I nominate Terrence Williams.

Today’s halfdog award nominee-Mark Madsen

28 01 2010

For today’s halfdog nomination, we are giving tribute to Mark Madsen, the former NBA player.  Today Madsen turned 34 years of age, and basically is a lifetime halfdog.  Madsen has airballed consecutive free throws, had “Twilight” like pale skin, and of course graced the country with this horrible dance.   Madsen, happy birthday, and happy halfdog nomination.

Jazz Hold on for 4th Straight

28 01 2010

The first quarter of last nights Utah Jazz game, was almost a perfect 12 minutes of basketball.  The Jazz shot 82% from the field and scored 21 of the first 23 points.  I personally have never seen a better quarter played by the Utah Jazz, with amazing defensive pressure, and the ability to get to the rim at will.  The Jazz held a 36-16 lead over the Portland Trailblazers at the end of the first.

Throughout the rest of the game, the Jazz continued to shot at a high percentage, but had a slight turnover problem.  The Jazz committed 21 turnovers to the Trailblazers 9.  Turnovers were the main reason why the Blazers crept back into the game and eventually cut the lead to five.  With a couple big Kyle Korver three pointers, and Deron Williams controlling the game, the Jazz were able to hold off the Blazers for a 106-95 victory.  The Jazz, who ended up shooting 60% for the game, won for their first time in Portland in six tries.

On any given night, someone off the Jazz bench will step up.  Against the Phoenix Suns, it was Wesley Matthews who scored a career high 21, last night it was Korver who scored 16 including going 4 for 4 from the three point line.  If it’s not Matthews, it’s Korver or Paul Millsap.  Basically, it’s Jazz basketball at it’s best. The Jazz now have won eight out of their last nine, and four straight.  Deron Williams made a promise that he wouldn’t shave off his beard until the Jazz win five straight, and hopefully they can do that on Friday when the Sacramento Kings come to Salt Lake City.

The Jazz have now moved into second place in the Northwest Division and look to stay hot against the struggling Kings.  Needless to say again, Jazz basketball is great to watch right now.

Carlos Boozer scored 14 points last night but left the game in the second half with a calf strain.  Hopefully it’s not too serious, no reports have come out at this point.  Boozer who is averaging 19.4 points and 10.8 rebounds, is a key part to the Jazz’s success, and they need him back.
