Next game (J-Corp)

Dunk Man Fresh.....again

Next Game

Big game on Friday night ,February the 29th 2008 in Granby: The Gorillas (8-5) will go up against the #1 team in the league; the 14-1 team of J-Corp. The SBG will be looking to avenge an early season loss. This one should in fact be a pretty good and hostile game from the get go. The Gorillas are expecting a physical game in which the home team gets all the calls and the road team begs for those same calls. More info to come on this game; stay tuned
The Silverback Gorillas conducted practice today and practiced amongst themselves all the while playing with and against a couple of friends. The game against the Cougars was declared a forfeit win for the Gorillas bcause the Cougars defaulted on payment and were therefore kicked out of the league. The team was sperated into two teams:
Team Silver
Herve (a friend not associated with team)

Team Black
Micth as an alternate (a friend not associated with team)

Team Black and Team Silver played four games in which the winning team was the first to 11; the losing team was obliged to run suicide sprints.

Game 1
Team Silver came out of the gates blazing the court. They took advantage of their size and outrebounded Team Black which led to several baskets. When the transition game was unavailable, Team Silver made it a point to pound the ball inside thus resulting in a win ( and a lot of trash talk).
Team Black ran suicides

Game 2
No different at all from Game 1, the same advantages and mismatches presented themselves; however this time around Team Black presented less defensive pressure and effort overal then they had in the previous game which resulted in a quick loss.
Team Black ran suicides......again

Game 3
Team Black came out hot hitting three point shots all over the place, but Team Silver eventually turned up to heat and forced Team Black into a couple of bad shots while they were able to convert and queak out a 11-10 win.
Team Black ran more suicides......again

Game 4
Team Black's psyche was falling apart with the mounting losses and they seemd ready to pack it in. Shyne had sat out game 3 but decided to fire up the troops and give it one last shot. Team Silver tried to keep pounding the ball inside but Team Black came out with more energy and thus forced several turnovers which they converted into points. Team Black became somewhat more physical and went inside more in this game and were able to convert in the paint; which resulted in a win.
Team Silver finally ran suicides

Jason Kidd trade request

Caught this off a website, can't recall which one; but it's basically someone imagining Jason Kidd's trade request to Rod Thorn (New Jersey GM). By the way when Kidd refers to Jeff, he is referring to his agent Jeff Schwarz. Enjoy the read

Jason Kidd: Jeff told you, huh?
Rod Thorn: Yes sir.
Kidd: Preferably, I'd like to go to the Lakers, Yankees, Mavericks, Heat, or Celtics.
Thorn: Yankees?
Kidd: Or Red Sox.
Thorn: The baseball-Boston Red Sox?
Kidd: I don't want Jason Collins to be traded with me. Dude steals my triple-doubles.
Thorn: What does that mean?
Kidd: A triple-double is when you get double-figures in points, rebounds, and assists.
Thorn: I know that, I meant ...
Kidd: No teams with blue uniforms.
Thorn: Have you seen what Dallas wears?
Kidd: On the flight out, I want an aisle seat. Something light for a in-flight entertainment. "Daddy Day Care" or that Rock movie with the girl and the ball with the sparkles.
Thorn: Jason, I'm going to have to stop you there.
Kidd: Nothing can stop me on my way to a championship. That's what I was put on Earth to do.
Thorn: Jason, you're not being interviewed, stop it. You do realize how hard it is to trade someone who makes as much money as you, right? You're making 19.7 million dollars this season.
Kidd: Yeah. I'm awesome.
Thorn: Be that as it may, we have to match that salary in any trade we make.
Kidd: Kwame makes that much.
Thorn: Kwame doesn't make that much. Very few people do.
Kidd: You make that much.
Thorn: No, I don't.
Kidd: Know why?
Thorn: Why, Jason?
Thorn: Great. Either way, there's not a lot we can do under NBA salary cap law that could ease you into a new team.
Kidd: I break laws all the time. I don't even have draft picks to do it with.
Thorn: What?
Kidd: I mean, it's easier for you to break a law, because you can just send someone a draft pick to make up for it.
Thorn: No, I mean, you break laws all the time?
Kidd: Did you see where I parked today? Look. (Points to a window, Thorn peers outside.)
Thorn: Right on the sidewalk. Ran over some kid's bike, too.
(Kidd beams.)
Thorn: Brav-o.
Kidd: Not even my car. It's Josh Boone's car. I took it, I'm keeping it. Josh Boone gets NO TRIP-LE DOUB-LES!
Thorn: You know, Malik Allen called me about this same sort of thing last month, and I just thought he was joking, or drunk, or both.
Kidd: Patriots!
Thorn: You like the Patriots on Sunday?
Kidd: You can trade me to the Patriots, broseph.
Thorn: No. No, I can't.
Kidd: Salary cap law? I told you: draft picks!
Thorn: Yeah, it doesn't work that way. Not without hurting my team. Not without taking back contracts of players that I don't want. Not without having to trade for Lamar Odom ...
Thorn: Or Jason Terry ...
Thorn: Or Nene Hilario ...
Kidd: NO TRIP-LE ... oh. My thoughts and prayers are with him, and his family. He just wants to win a championship, like me. That's all we're in it for.
Thorn: Jason, again, no reporters are here.
Kidd: What if you traded half of me to a team, like with Vince Carter, and I could play half the time with the Lakers for half-price, and part of the time with the Nets?
Thorn: I don't know where to start. "Like with Vince Carter?"
Kidd: You know how he plays with the Raptors on the off days?
Thorn: He doesn't play with the Raptors. He's been a Net since December of 2004!
Kidd: He seems awfully tired. I just assumed.
Thorn: I honestly can't fault you, there.
Kidd: What if I go to David Stern, and say, like, "hey, David Stern. I'll give you, like, 14 triple-doubles if you let me go to the Lakers?"
Thorn: How do you give someone a triple-double?
Kidd: Just gave the Nuggets one.
Thorn: Oh, I get it.
Kidd: Gave the Bobcats two, gave the Magic one, the Hawks one, gave triple-doubles to the whole damn Eastern seaboard.
Thorn: And what would David Stern do with his 14 triple-doubles?
Kidd: Whatever the hell he wants! Steal some [stuff] from the Cheesecake Factory, cold-cock a red-headed dude just for the hell of it, burn [stuff] ... it's a triple-double!
Thorn: I really wish I'd, you know, engaged in an actual conversation with you before signing that contract extension.
Kidd: '85 Bears!
Thorn: You want me to trade you to a football team from 23 years ago.
Kidd: The Triple-Double Shuffle! (Rapping) "My name is J-Kidd, and I like to pass. Rippin' triple-doubles is better than ro-mance ..."
Thorn: You know who could really use some triple-doubles? The Hawks.
Kidd: I'm just here to win a championship. It's my life's ambition, and a dream I've had since I was a child. I'll do it anything for it.
Thorn: Did you just set my desk on fire?

The boxscore itself gives an indication as to why the SBG lost this game. We shot 13/23 from the free throw line while committing 26 fouls themselves. Although that in itself would not neccessarily result in a loss, our poor shooting from the filed sealed our fate. Our top four scorers struggled from the field( no offense to Celtique, but it wasn't because of their defense) and our perimiter shooting was completely stymied as seen in the stats with only one made three point basket. The Gorillas will have a practice on sunday february the 10th andhope to work out all the issues plaguing the team currently. The emphasis will be on effort, defense and rebounding.

Stay tuned for more of the SBG

Game Time

The SBG (6-4) will face Celtique on Sunday Feb 3rd (Superbowl Sunday). Be sure to tune for the game if possible, however in the event that it is not possible, make sure to tune in on the site as I will provide as much videos about gameday and the remainder of our activities on the day.

Quick note: It was originally thought that a game was forfeited against the Gorillas earlier in the season which would have brough record to 7-4, however that win was in effect removed and that game has been rescheduled thus meaning the Gorillas are now 6-4 entering their next contest against Celtique.
