ballex –  yeah im an ariza fan
11:32
ballex –  ok i have my coffee fresh from the microwave. ready to go.
11:34
ballex –  i think boston’s problem has to do with what we’ve been talking about  from day one of  ‘the big three’ – their point guard. rondo has managed to jell, but he is injured. the problem is, the substitute PG is cassell, who is the exact opposite of Rondo.
11:34
ballex –  Cassell loves to shoot, while Rondo hates shooting.
11:35
ballex –  bos players dont therefore know what to do whenever plays start in cassells hands. do they position for a shot or a play? it resulted in at least 3 turnovers if i remember right.
11:36
ballex –  that introduces hesitation in boston’s play. no team needs that, esp in the finals, playing in hostile ground.
11:37
ballex –  i love the super super slow mo with 70’s wailing guitar music in the background.
