Mad Men and the NBA

In 2010 the Golden State Warriors were purchased by an ownership group that included Vivek Ranadivé and then Head Coach Keith Smart was fired. In 2013 the Sacramento Kings were purchased by an ownership group led by Vivek Ranadivé and Head Coach Keith Smart was again let go. In honor of this amusing NBA / Mad Men parallel - I offer Roger Sterling firing Burt Peterson for the second time.

The Kings are currently the best team in the league.

It was one of the loudest crowds that I've played in front of in the postseason," said Bryant, who passed Jerry West for the Lakers' all-time playoff scoring record, finishing Thursday with 4,465 points. "At the end of the third quarter, it was like the barn in Sacramento. It was really loud.

A great example from last year's draft that I blew at the time: Memphis' Tyreke Evans could get to any spot he wanted. This was obvious in college, and it's painfully obvious now. I got caught up in dueling issues with him -- "Is he a point guard or a shooting guard?" and "Why was he the driver in the getaway car of a shooting? -- and missed the basic reality of the Tyreke Evans Era. Namely, that none of the other crap mattered. The dude gets to the rim whenever he wants. I am still kicking myself.

[Evans is] still overshadowed a bit by Jennings' scintillating start, but that performance looks to be a bit of an outlier based on unsustainable shooting numbers. Evans' play, in contrast, seems to be the real deal. He's a distant second in the hype war, but in this two-horse Rookie of the Year race, I have him ahead by a few lengths at the quarter pole.

The Kings will take a .500 record into December. We repeat: Sacramento is a .500 team despite losing Kevin Martin to a wrist injury. Apologies to anyone else worth nominating, this is your Surprise Team of November.

TZ vs Peaches Continued

I was struck, as I always am, by Grant Napear's outlandish evaluation of his own importance and his total dismissal of the ability of a fan to understand the team or the game in general. I can't...
