This was probably one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in professional basketball. After a long summer of Shaq talking through the media about how cheap the hack-a-shaq is, the Spurs decided to makeaA joke out of it.Five seconds after tip off of the Spurs and Suns opening game, Michael Finley fouled Shaq.

Spurs Employ Hack-a-Shaq Five Seconds Into the New Season

Two weeks ago, Snaq went on a Phoenix radio station and vowed to make the Spurs pay for using the Hack-a-Shaq technique last year in the playoffs when they were actually up 10 points.  Greg Popovich and his new beard decided to teach Shaq a lesson in the new year.

Two thumbs up.  LMAO.

Where a very nice birthday present from Stevie happens!

Pues el regalo de Stevie fue… una victoria en el season opener contra los Spurs… en casa de los bloody fucking Spurs! IN THEIR FACE!!!

Al parecer el partido estuvo muy reñido y Tony Longoria Parker y Tim Duncan anotaron 32 puntos… cada uno. Afortunadamente para los Suns, Manu Ginobili sigue lesionado… thank you for that. Pero para que vean lo reñido que estuvo, al quedar 2 minutos 53 segundos por jugar, Stoudemire hizo una jugada de tres puntos para romper el empate que existía hasta ese momento entre ambos equipos. En la siguiente ofensiva de los Spurs, Raja Bell le robó el balón a Tim Duncan (Ha! In your emotionless face!), y Stoudemire anotó una canasta con asistencia de Stevie para poner a los Suns arriba por 5. Ya con menos de un minuto por jugar y con los Suns arriba por sólo 3, Tony Longoria Parker falló un triple… Ya con 8 segundos por jugar, Tim Duncan intentó otro triple para empatar y… NADA! O sea, por qué no pudo haber pasado eso en Abril?!?!?!?! Por qué?!?!?!? Anyway, después de eso Leandrinho Barbosa hizo dos tiros libres con tres segundos por jugar para sellar la victoria de los Suns. Sobre los Spurs. En su casa. Suck it, bitches!

Marcador final: 98 – 103.

Gracias Suns!!! 😀

Ah y por si se estaban preguntando, los Stupid Useless Canadian Spurs aplicaron el Hack-a-Shaq varias veces en el partido… again! I HATE THEM!!! They dared to piss me off on my birthday game!!! It IS war!

Anyway, para hacer más especial la victoria de mi cumple, Stevie no sólo hizo doble doble, sino que fue un doble doble de su número de Jersey porque hizo 13 puntos y 13 asistencias. Ahh, tan lindo!

Mientras tanto, el quote de la noche se lo lleva… el coach Popovich por su comentario en cuanto al primer partido de la temporada.

“It was a loss.”

Wow… he’s… brilliant… Right!

Anyway, más detalles, aquí y aquí.

Y esta noche los Suns reciben en casa a los Hornets en su primer partido de la temporada en el US Airways Center. Go Suns!

Por cierto, los Bulls también me dieron un buen regalo de cumple al haber ganado ellos también su season opener, en mi mero cumple, en su casa contra los Bucks de Milwaukee lidereados por el antiguo coach de los Bulls, Scott Skiles, con marcador de 95 – 108. Más detalles, aquí.

Hack-a-Shack

For those of you who don’t know, during the preseason Suns center Shaq bitched about Spurs coach Gregg Popovich’s using of the Hack-a-Shaq (i.e. foul Shaq all of the time so he has to shoot free throws.  Shaq is a like 30% free throw shooter) strategy alot during the first round of the playoffs last year.  Shaq even called it a “coward’s move.”  Well the Spurs got a quick laugh in their first game of this season…..

2010 NBA All-Star Game to be played in Cowboys’ new stadium

The Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Cowboys have teamed up to bring the 2010 NBA All-Star Weekend to the metroplex. An announcement is planned Thursday before the Mavericks’ season opener against Houston to unveil the Cowboys’ new stadium in Arlington as the site for the All-Star Game, multiple sources said Wednesday. The ancillary events, such as the dunk contest, 3-point shootout and other activities, will be at American Airlines Center, with other venues, perhaps including the Dallas Convention Center, also being used. The Mavericks have been working with the Cowboys and the NBA for several months in an attempt to land the 2010 game. Owner Mark Cuban confirmed to The Dallas Morning News in May that the Cowboys and Mavericks were working on putting together a bid for the game. Cuban previously had resisted all overtures about bringing the league’s midseason extravaganza to Dallas because most of his season-ticket holders would have no chance of seeing the game since the league eats up virtually all of the tickets in an NBA arena for the game. However, with the Cowboys’ stadium capable of seating perhaps nearly 50,000 for a basketball game, all of the season-ticket holders could be accommodated. All-Star Weekend has evolved through the years into a 72-hour festival of the NBA’s culture, as well as the game. The parties generally are as tough to get into as the basketball games. With Victory Plaza becoming an entertainment hub, the area should have no trouble hosting the extracurricular activities. The Mavericks hosted the All-Star Weekend in 1986 at Reunion Arena. The game has been played at football stadiums before, most recently in 1996 at San Antonio’s Alamodome and 1989 at Houston’s Astrodome. The San Antonio game drew more than 36,000 and the one in Houston had 44,000 in attendance. This year’s All-Star Game is at Phoenix.
