My hopes of seeing the Lakers eliminated have pretty much vanished. They seem unstoppable now, specially considering what they'll face in the finals.  :judo:

Some writer suggested the possibility of Kobe sitting out game 6 to rest. Any thoughts on that? How far can the Lakers go with an ailing Kobe?

not funny or anything, just good.

I'm not trying to be a smart ass or anything but would you please tell me what exactly in your opinion is good about this video?

If my Atlanta Hawks could pull out a win or two against Boston, I would be more than satisfied.

You must be ecstatic right now. I never would have thought the Hawks would win one, let alone three.

The second round starts today. Is anyone interested in sharing his/her predictions?

I suck at predicting but here are my picks:

San Antonio in 6
Lakers in 6
Pistons in 6
If the Celtics beat the Hawks, Celtics in 7. If the Hawks win, Cleveland in 6.

... but these Spurs are for real, and it shows they're still a force to be reckoned with unfortunately, so it's likely anyone that wants to come out of the West will have to go through them. Interestingly enough, Dallas is, or at least was, built specifically to beat them, and was the only team that did besides those great Lakers teams. I actually think Dallas has an edge in that series, not outright, but a mental advantage they wouldn't have against anyone else. They're comfortable playing the Spurs, and even if these Spurs come to kick their ass, Dallas would be playing with house money and wouldn't have to worry about embarrassing themselves losing to a lesser team.

But to get a shot at the Spurs they first have to get past the Hornets and it's not looking all that simple. I still think they won't do it, but hey, I thought the Suns were going to do better.

Those Spurs are indeed looking good. Oh well, at least the other series are getting better.

I guess one lesson all players should learn is not to trash talk. The Wizards were talking, Lebron shut them up, and now the Nuggets have learned the lesson the hard way.

Great performance by Kobe. I guess I won't get to see them Lakers lose soon.

Also, only one series is tied, I hope things will change now that the trailing teams will play at home.

That Kenny Smith video was hilarious.

This is correct. The events right after the Occultation were put online by Walter at the time, to help fans that had just finished watching the animated series understand what was going on. However there were taken down pretty quickly, and it's not a part of SK.net history that we're particularly proud of (i.e. it never happened and mentioning it is doubleplusungood).

Yep, we shamefully hosted a few episodes that directly followed the last episode of the anime since we were getting that question about 100x daily when new members were showing up. It was just easier to show them.

Thank you both for answering my question. I guess I can postpone a visit to the doctor for a little longer.   :guts:

Perhaps you feel it was not a very good thing to do, but it probably helped introduce people to the manga. It worked for me, and for that, I thank you too.

Anyway, I promise not to bring that up again.

I wasn't here in 2001 so I can't say for sure, but since the policy here is "no scanlations," I assume there weren't any available.  You can always pick up the Dark Horse release of Vol. 13, or the original Japanese one, if you're confused about what did or didn't happen.

I'm sorry, perhaps I didn't make myself clear. What I'd like to know is if there were in fact some scanlations hosted here at some point in time. I'm not asking for scanlations, I know the rules. The thing is that my memory seems to be failing me and I'd like to know if this situation I remember indeed happen or I'm just imagining things.

A friend of mine had some episodes of the anime on CD (way before the DVDs were released). I borrowed a few and I liked what I saw, a lot. I watched all of the episodes he had, but I didn't get to watch the final episode which made me look for information on the internet. That led me to SK.net and the manga which I've enjoyed much more.

This little stroll down memory lane reminded me of something (off-topic) which I would like somebody to confirm or refute. I remember that when I first came across SK.net (around 2001, I believe) there where some scanlations available (a few episodes after the eclipse). The reason I ask is because lately I've come to realize that some stuff I remember as a fact didn't actually happen or happened differently  :judo: and I'd like to know if this is one of those situations.

Excellent performance by Gasol. It must be comforting for Lakers fans to know that there is somebody on the team who can pick up the slack if Kobe takes a day off. Man, that Kupchak is looking more like a genius every day.

And how about those Sixers? I really thought the Pistons would win in four games.

As for last summer, I sure as hell wouldn't change how anything went down, it lit a fire under Bynum's and the team's butt and instead of losing Kobe we got Pau.

Of course no Lakers fan would change anything seeing how everything turned out more than fine.  :guts:

Anyway, m, what makes you a Laker/Kobe hater, are you a true purple-blue Suns fan? If so, look out, because we've got a Laker double agent on your team, with plenty of backstabbing experience: The Big Saboteur. =)

I guess I mostly dislike Bryant and that extended to the team. I think he's an excellent player but he's a little too arrogant for my taste, and let's not forget the way in which he kicked Shaq out of the team (although from your post I'm led to believe that you disagree) or last year's trade demands. I understand he wanted a competitive team but I think that the way he handled the whole thing was just wrong, at least that is my opinion.

I don't really have a favorite team but I do appreciate good basketball.

Shootin' the Breeze / 2008 NBA playoffs, anyone?
« on: April 17, 2008, 04:59:35 PM »
Hello everyone!

Long time lurker, first time poster.

The NBA playoffs are here. It seems it will be a very intense battle in the West. Any favorites? I'd like to see "los" Suns make the finals but what I'd really like is to see the Lakers lose as early as possible, no offense to Lakers fans out there, I just don't like that team (specially Bryant). I think the Celtics will win in the East.

I hope the games will live up to the expectation.
