Dixie cups with jokes on them?
Wow, that brings me right back to NJ in the 70's.

And speaking of jokes.
Here's one for the littledog:

A guy is driving around and he sees a sign in front of a house:
"Talking Dog For Sale."
He rings the bell, and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard.
The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador Retriever
sitting there.

"So ... you talk?" he asks.
"Yep," the Lab replies.
"That's incredible.  How come no one has ever heard about this?"

The dog looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when
I was pretty young, and I wanted to help out; so I told the
CIA about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from
country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders,
because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of
their most valuable spies for eight years."

"But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't
getting any younger so I wanted to settle down. I signed up for a
job at the airport to do some undercover security work, mostly
wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some
drug deals and other crimes and was awarded a batch of medals.
But after I got older, I came back here to settle down, and raise a family.
Now I'm just retired."

The guy is amazed.
He goes back in and asks the owner how much he wants for the dog.

"Ten dollars."

The guy is shocked, "This dog is amazing.
Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Oh, he's just a big fat liar. He didn't do any of that stuff."

I wonder what all of those Net fans (okay, there were only about five) from the NYTimes board have to say about Byron Scott coaching the all-star game.  He was ragged on heavily, but did a fine job with the Nets and now with the Hornets.
Just maybe the guy knows something about hoops and how to get a team to play together. 

I also used to hate the way those guys dumped on RJ for years, when it seemed he was getting better every year and maturing into an all-around stud.

The successes of guys like McMillan and Scott are similar. 
Both were pretty good players but neither was a real all-Star for their team. 
They each played with better players and had to defer. 

A lot of times, they let ex-PGs coach.  Doc, Skiles, Avery, Isiah, people pushing for Mark Jackson...  I don't know if thats wise.  They control the ball so much when they play, and perhaps they should leave the coaching to the off-guards.

Devin Harris is having quite the debut with NK.  His eyes looked wide as saucers as he sat on the bench awaiting his chance.  4 for his first 4 with two threes, 11pts, 2ast, in 5 minutes of action.

You wanted to root for JKidd and Kenyon Martin.  Those guys always took digs at NY.

So was I supposed to be rooting for the Nets or Kings?
This tanking stuff can be confusing . . .

Well, the hope is one of those can catch us, upping our draft spot a notch.  I mean, Vince has been roaring lately.

Most likely we're locked in at 9, since those other teams below us don't really want to win much.

Holding ping pong ball luck aside, Knicks at 9 seems likliest outcome.

Everyone below them (1-8) is in tank mode and would have to pick up at least 4 games in the next 20.

And can't see the Knicks picking up games/ground on on Lakers or Cha to jump ahead of them.
