Andrew Bynum stole the Lakers’ hearts.


Andrew Bynum stole the Lakers' hearts.Welcome to another edition of “NBA’s Saturday Night Musings.” You’re probably not reading this because of the Superbowl where Arizona meets Pittsburgh. Personally, I don’t care for the Superbowl since Pitt is somewhat of a boring team to watch and I never liked the Cardinals, but I hope Old Man Kurt Warner wins one to cement his Hall of Fame status and the great Larry Fitzgerald needs one to show that he’s the best receiver in the NFL.

Knicks 122, Pacers 113
: Don’t look now. The Knicks are actually good. New Yorkers should stop complaining right now. If you’re not, you’re a snob. David Lee beasting with 23 points and 17 rebounds. He should have been an All Star reserve this year, but he’ll make it next year if he keeps it up. Mike Dunleavy, Danny Granger, and Jarrett Jack shot horribly.

Nets 85, Sixers 83: Rookie Brook Lopez stepped up with 24 points, 17 boards, and 4 swats. What if he kept on playing like for the rest of the year? Shouldn’t he get some Rookie of the Year consideration? Elton Brand went 2-10 from the field, 5 points and 9 boards in 18 minutes. You suck Brand.

Mavs demolishing the Heat: No need to know the score. Start Beasley already to save his number 2 draft status; at least he helps Wade in a way. No disrespect to Yakhouba Diawara, but you suck bro. Diawara is foul fodder. Dirk Nowitzki had an extremely efficient night (34 minutes, 30 points, 12-14 from the field, 7 boards) showing why he should have been the All Star starter over Amare.

Lakers 115, Grizz 98
: OH NO ANDREW BYNUM! Lakers fan stand up and get your coffee, red bull or whatever the hell you drink to stay up. Who cares about the Superbowl? This is more important. It’s going to be a long night on the message boards. The Lakers must love playing Memphis. Let’s hope it’s not going to ruin his season. If it does, hey KOBESTER! Come over to the Chicago Bulls like you once wanted. LOL. They’ll sign and trade Ben Gordon, throw in Kirk Hinrich and Andres Nocioni for you. No sweat.

Clippers 94, Wizards 106: I can’t remain optimistic with the Clips. They lost to the worst team in the NBA, which means the Clippers are now the absolute worst team in the entire world. I’ve been following them since 1993. Donald Sterling must give up the team to shake off all that bad karma. If not, nights like this will always happen. I feel bad for Eric Gordon and Marcus Camby.

Rockets trashing the Warriors
: Ho-hum. Business as usual. Move on. I wonder what Corey Maggette is thinking.

Bucks 110, Hawks 107: How can you lose to the Bucks? Shaking my head. This is what separates the elite teams from teams on the bubble. Hey ATL, step up your game against teams like this. Yeah I know Scott Skiles turned the team around, but he’ll be gone in another 3 years once the team hates his disciplinarian ways. Hey Ramon Sessions! My dude! You got a starting spot. Show the world how better you are than freakin’ Luke Ridnour.

Spurs 106, Hornets 93
: “The greatest statistical point God today” Chris Paul did his thing, but when he has only 4 assists, the Hornets usually loses. And OMG! Did Manu Ginobili just end Perez Hilton Armstrong’s career? Cot damn!

Chi-Town 122, The Suns 111: Chicago finally wins 3 games in a row! D-Lightning showing why he’s the rookie of the year with 26 points, 6 boards, 4 assists, 12-19 from the field in 31 minutes. His floater is the best in the league bar none! He can make those like a regular jumper. Amare, you suck man. How in the hell can you go 9 points and 1 rebound for awhile, I’ll never understand. Do us a favor; sit out the All Star game if you’re gonna put out games like this. Be lucky that the rest of the league doesn’t know yet. Once the Superbowl is over, the fans will turn their attention back to the Suns. They’ll know soon enough. Amare is not a franchise player. Sorry, Phoenix fans, but Grant Hill did show flashbacks of the 1995 Grant Hill in this game. Too bad it’s not really 1995 today. Oh yeah, back to Derrick Rose….

The kid is too nice. Ben Gordon did his thing in this one, too.

Jazz 108, Blazers 122
: Brandon Roy and the bench had to save this game. Greg Oden with 5 fouls in 11 minutes. Ouch. D-Wills did his thing, but again, like Chris Paul, he didn’t connect much with his passes. When he has to score a lot and not ring up the assists, Utah loses.
