MVP All The Way

The Suns continue to be just incredible to watch. Such a great TEAM, such effective players. We have so many scorers, and so many 3 shooters, it just isn't even fair. You can't argue that Steve Nash is the man, but one of the things that makes him great is the team dynamic. Barbosa and Diaw have really stepped up, Marion continues to be the go to guy (despite my trepidation at his past his post season performance), Tim Thomas is just a gift (what were the Bulls thinking?), gotta love Bell... The bench is so strong, with the only big albatross in the line-up being Eddie House. Argh!

The Clippers played great, shooting 60% for 123 points. Their star player, Elton Brand, hit nearly 90% of his shots for 40 points (he was scoring at will, we had no way to stop him). That is a winning game!

Unless you are playing the Suns. The Suns can shoot at only 55% and still outscore you by 7. Ouch.

I never enjoyed basketball until watching last Saturday's playoff game against the Lakers. and then Monday night's game -- Wow! I'm really getting into this basketball thing.
