Tim,

Word has it that you're planning on posting some stuff that's rehashing all the stupidity of the past few weeks in your game recap. Fair warning: As long as the recaps are on the up and up and involve actually recapping the game and/or the league we have no problem. If it becomes a platform for anything else, especially stuff you know is going to violate site rules (as we have discussed already) it will be deleted and you will be banned. It's your call.

LINE OF THE YEAR? With 1:40 left in last night's victory over the Washington Wizards, and the Los Angeles Lakers nursing a 7 point lead, Wiz guard Gilbert Arenas turned the ball over. Barring some kind of Reggie Miller/Tracy McGrady/Paul Milsap level explosion, the game should have been well in hand. Instead, we were treated to this ... 1:38 Gilbert Arenas bad pass 103-110 1:27 103-110 Kobe Bryant misses 28-foot three point jumper Even the box score doesn't properly portray the stupidity of this shot. It says 11 seconds passed in between Arenas' turnover and Kobe's shot, but there were still 16 seconds left on the shot clock. Time for a quick lesson in end game basketball strategy. Every time posession changes (or a shot hits the rim) in professional basketball, the shot clock is reset to 24 seconds. The offensive team has that much time to shoot the ball, and failure to do so (or to touch rim with the shot they do take) results in a turnover. Simple arithmetic dictates that a team with a 7-10 point lead with under 2 minutes to play doesn't need to do anything at all on offense. Just allowing the 24 second clock to expire 3 straight times would put tremendous pressure on the team facing the deficit, because if you add in the roughly 6 or so seconds minimum it would take the other team to score, every possession would use a minimum of 30 seconds utilizing this strategy. An eight year old understands the complexity of this situation. And Kobe Bryant launched a 28 foot 3 pointer with 16 seconds left on the shot clock. And he wasn't even open. The Lakers would literally be better served with an offensive set in which Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom, Derrick Caracter and Ron Artest form a fort of screens just past half court, with Derek Fisher dribbling into the fort and then spooning with the basketball for 20 seconds. * * *
