My rhymin is a vitamin, held without a capsule...
After simmering down for about 24 hours after the Nuggets' pivotal loss to the Mavs last night (if this post would've been in the wake of the game it would've read something like: "Fuck fucking fuck. The Nuggets fucking lick ass. They will probably be fucking relegated to the D-League. Fuck")
Being the SG always looks at the bright side of things, perhaps the loss isn't as bad as it looks the morning after.
For instance, the five games in seven nights helped Malik Allen pick out a darling concrete dog statue in SkyMall. He's even holding a basket that you can plant real flowers in! (Seriously though, a back-to-back between Orlando and Dallas? Good thing Vancouver is no longer in the league and the Shanghai Sharks were already playing.)
Adrian Dantley might look clueless over this stretch, but he has been contacted by several mannequin companies who like his active, yet older sleek look. Assistant Chad Iske, who is the only coach who looks interested could see his value soar this summer. Perhaps Josh McDaniels will hire him as D-coordinator.
The Mavs keeping in their starters until late in the game and feeding Dirk the ball to get a triple double will be noted by the Nuggets. Think Dirk's canning of a late three and holding a "three" in the air wasn't mocking some Nugs' member with a 'NY' tat on his neck? (If you guessed Tim Grgurich, ooh, so close.)
Shawn Marion declaring himself Bruce Bowen 2.0 after the game can probably fall into the category of "we'll remember" too. And how can you forget Shawn Marion, his jumper is burned in the retina of Jerry West's perfect form.
With the rough patch behind, there's now three games in eight days. Chance to get settled back in Colorado, delete the stripper pictures from Toronto, heal K-Mart with a shaman's wand, convince the coaches to take a hard look at the substitution patterns, and plenty of film work. And if they don't then fuck fuck fucker, they'll fall to eighth damn place. All positive.
