(RETIRE MOSES MALONE’S #2 SIXERS JERSEY !! S4G PETITION – SIGN HERE)
Here is when the six-hour time zone difference vs the US f’s you up.
So that’s what happened between last night and tonight, CGT (central guido time).
I stayed up a little bit longer and started following the Denver game on Yahoo.com, until the end of the first quarter.
At around 1.40 AM I finally went to bed (you know, have to work the day after etc etc), with Sixers up twelve, 25-13. Not too bad of a start vs the #2 team in the Western Conference, I thought.
This morning at work I couldn’t resist and I immediately checked the boxscore. Mmmhhh, we lost 89-101, damn it (27-26, .509). Wait, not only that, but Miller got injured !! Double damage. Jeez.
So I worked my butt off for the usual 10 hrs in office, then finally went home and, after spaghetti and meatballs dinner, started watching the replaying game on League Pass, of course already knowing the end….
But in the meantime the trade deadline was approaching (10 PM CGT), so I had to watch the Nuggets slowly killing us, but always keeping another window of my laptop open to see whether Stefanski would deal Miller or not.
At the end of the day the two bad news (loss + injury to Miller) were countered by a good one: our PG is not going anywhere, injured or not.
I’ll keep the Miller part short: if you follow this blog you know I was, am and will be a fan of Andre Miller, so I’m happy we kept him.
Coincidentially, Sixers showed how bad they can be without Miller in the last two games. Actually in the first one he was simply in an off night, while yesterday he had to leave, with his team mates creating a total mess on the court for the rest of the game…
I hope WITH Miller we won’t have to enjoy such horrendous bball in the future.
While watching the Chauncey & Melo show, I tried to send him a question to John Hollinger in his chat on ESPN.com asking him about Miller, but another guy anticipated me. Anyway, here is Hollinger’s opinion about Stefanski’s decision:
Chris Laurel Springs: Were you suprised the Sixers did not trade Andre Miller?
John Hollinger: For what? There wasn’t much available in terms of point guards and shooting specialists, so you’re better off just re-signing him at a lower number in a depressed market this summer.
Hey John, how about I hire you for Sixers4guidos ? Does that opportunity sound intriguing? Send me your resume, LOL.
So back to the Nuggets game. I’m glad we play them only twice a year. Read the rest of this entry »
