The inimitable Bill Walton just said on the broadcast that Beethoven's Third Symphony ushered in the era of Romantic Music (he's right about that...Eroica was indeed a mo-fo) and that Boris Diaw is likewise ushering in the Age of Romanticism in NBA players.

Questions:

1) Have you ever heard an announcer make such an esoteric, yet correct, reference while calling a game?

2) Is Boris Diaw really at the vanguard of a new style of NBA player?

3) Do the Lakers stand any chance of beating the Suns in a series? After all, Kobe scored close to fifty tonight and they still lost their ass.

No, the Lakers don't stand a chance. You need multiple scorers to beat the Suns. Lakers have a better chance against SA.

The Kings would be a better matchup for the Suns....

I think the Kings would have a much better chance of beating the Suns.

But Lakers i dont think have any chance...because Marion can play d on Kobe to slow him down a lil and if Kobe tries to shoot too much it wont work cuz he cant out shoot the suns.

haha, wow, that is a surprisingly apt statement, especially considering that beethoven originally dedicated the third to napoleon bonaparte, another frenchman (sort of).
