Notes from TNT’s Coverage of the NBA Playoffs –Sunday, May 09, 2010: Rajon Rondo Goes Oscar; Nash and the Suns Sweep SpursPosted in Blogroll on May 10th, 2010 by Michael Tillery
29 Birds, 18 Russells, 13 Cousys. 97-87 victory. Like I said in the preview, “Rajon Rondo will be around Oscar numbers the entire series…” but I had no idea he would get off like this. Look at those numbers. Have they soaked in yet? When you consider how much time you’ve put in watching the NBA, how many players come to mind that could achieve something similar?
I have to stick by my prediction and say the Cavs will pull this out in six, just remember what I also said about the Celtics…because they ain’t no slouches.
As far as the Suns, I’m surprised as any of you the Spurs were swept and maybe that sentiment is because of their dynasty. The Suns showed and proved. Steve Nash stepped up and took what he wants to be his. Get past Kobe Steve and I’m on board, but until then your two MVP’s are still bogus.
