George Karl's daughter wants Kobe to teach the Nuggets how to play basketball.

The title says it all. Enjoy. And Karl seems like a funny guy. Btw, isn't it great how even other players and NBA personnel (ie. Ron Artest) hero-worship Kobe?

Thoughts on categorising the All-Time Greats.

Well, it's the dead of the night, I'm very bored waiting for today's coverage (seriously, I'm starting to get addicted to SSR. Somebody help?), and for some reason thoughts of how to rank all-time...

Phil Jackson's 11 secret herbs and spices to being the greatest NBA coach of all time.

I don't particularly want to compare this to the late John Wooden's hallowed 'Pyramid of Success', as it does not apply to life in general as well as Wooden's pyramid, nor has it been specifically written by Phil, but these 11 points from Forum Blue and Gold's Jeff perfectly summarise Phil Jackson's method of success. Quite frankly, the Lakers need Phil back. Here's to hoping something changes his mind between now and next week.

Andrew Bynum's knee draining 'worked', will play for certain in Game Five

16

Some good news in that unlike last time the swelling did not return almost immediately after the procedure, and that Andrew doesn't expect it to return until 'after the game'. Also, thankfully the procedure didn't have any complications or cause a fracture. However the Lakers, particularly Phil, still need to heavily monitor Bynum's minutes in Game 5, as from there on out there's only one days' rest between games and Andrew Bynum will most certainly be needed in Games 6 and 7 - Los Angeles can't afford to lose him to swelling. Even with Bynum's presence, Odom needs to seriously step it up.

Kobe Bryant 'likely' to miss the Worlds, may require offseason knee surgery

2

Off-topic from the Finals, but still very, VERY good news. With Kobe's sheer dominance over the course of the last to and a bit rounds of these Playoffs, it's easy to forget that he is still playing through serious injuries - amazing, really. This rest shall do him well, and few would have been surprised if he decided to lace it up for the Worlds regardless of his injuries, and thus punish his body even further. It certainly is news that his knee may require surgery (and what about his fingers?), but if he needs it, he should get it; and at least his knee wasn't drained of fluid earlier on in the Playoffs due to 'old age', as some journalists suggested while busy writing Kobe off. Hopefully, it's not a serious procedure.

Bit of an overload of stuff this early in the morning, but the anticipation over these last 8 hours is at fever pitch. This video is so great, it is virtually a must-watch. I highly recommend clicking through to YouTube and watching it in HD. Seriously, after watching this (6 times in a row), I doubt I'll be able to sleep the 8 hours between now and the Game (it's currently 3am where I live). This will pump you up.

Quick question out of curiosity here, guys

Anyone know how long CelticsBlog has been around for? I was just checking the SiteMeter stats for y'all, and your total page views is INSANE. Looking forward (hopefully) to a good series between us...

Kobe Bryant's greatest playoff series ever?

5

Some interesting numbers there, IMO it's definitely this one, followed by the '01 WCF, followed by the '01 second-round series against Sacramento (gets the nod over 08/Utah because it was a sweep). And BK is money on his final quote, "Does his recent run prove again he's best player in the game? Who cares? Bryant is still playing this year while other candidates for the crown are watching at home. In the end, does anything else mean more to him?"".

Celtics eliminate Magic in 6, waiting for winner of WCF

154

Now that the Celtics have taken out the Magic and removed any hope of a miraculous comeback by Orlando, they have nearly a week to rest before playing in the Finals. If the Lakers advance in 6, they have only a day less rest than the Celtics, if they (or the Suns) advance in 7 the Western Conference champions will have about half as much rest as the Celtics. It goes without saying, the Lakers should really come out all guns blazing in an attempt to win Game 6.

Andrew Bynum's knee injury worsening

34

I think we could all perceive this from his play in the last two games, but here's the confirmation. Structurally, it's not getting any worse, but the longer he plays through it, the more the swelling increases, and the knee hasn't been co-operative with treatment and rest.

Sasha Vujacic will be back for the WCF, possibly crack rotation

25

Pretty self-explanatory, really. Unlikely he cracks the rotation for any more than garbage-time, but there always is the ever-so-slight possibility he heats up from three, and thus earns a spot as 9th man. Nonetheless, he certainly sounds motivated, and Phil says there's a possibility he gets PT, so I guess there's nothing to do but wait and see.
