Talking About Practice: Episode 10

Tom Ziller of NBA FanHouse and Sactown Royalty and John Karalis of Red’s Army stop by to talk about the puzzling Game 5 performance by LeBron James in the Cavs/Celtics series as well as prognosticate on what we will see tonight during Game 6. Ziller is on for the first half hour and also drops some knowledge on Lakers/Suns (with a Nash vs. Fish discussion getting some good burn) before John hops in around the 30-minute mark.

  1. Great stuff with Ziller. “LeBron…on a mission from God”…foreshadowing a jump to Chicago? Either way…good line.

    I gotta take some umbrage with the claim that all (or even most) Laker fans hate D Fish now. I’ve talked to my share of Laker fans who still give him a pass for “0.4 seconds.” The sense among them (which I agree with) is that Fish doesn’t have it and hasn’t had it defensively for a couple years now. But he has never stopped making big plays. He’s certainly no Robert Horry, but I know a fair number of Laker fans who still trust that Fish — no matter how much he gets torched by any one player in any one game — will make a big play (most likely a big shot) when the Lakers need it most.

    Karalis made some strong points about Mike Brown’s failings. It’s as if, even as he’s coaching, the game has passed Brown by. He’s never been the most cunning offensive coach, but he seems to be employing defensive strategies that worked in 2002 or 1996 (when he’s not panicking). Such a waste of LeBron’s prime.

    That said…I’d be shocked if LeBron does anything less than drop a quintuple double on the Celtics in both games 6 and 7. He’s like, LeBron. #yallmustaforgot

    RE: Rondo…While watching Game 5 with my homeboy from Philly (who is more Philly than Questlove and Rocky and WC Fields combined)…he said there’s no arguing that Rondo is a top 5 point guard. It’s only a matter of how high you want to rank him in the upperest echelon. In short, smart people are recognizing Rondo’s greatness. Even in Philly.
