Now before I get into stats for the past wks games, lets get some other stories that circulated around the NBA.
– Tonight’s Heat and Bulls game was moved from Monday night to today so the United Center can be used for the taping of one of Oprah’s final shows. This woman rules the world, IDC what anyone says.
– Shaq may be forced into retirement. The 39 yr old powerhouse has never fully recovered from an injury obtained earlier in the season and his last game played may have been his last. It doesn’t look good for him. If he can’t run, he can’t even be a sheriff. No bueno. LOL.
– The rumors surrounding Pau and Kobe are untrue says the Lakers center. Him and his girlfriend are fine. So shut it.
– New Wizards uniforms are in store. They are reverting back to the red, white and blue format, as used by their former counterparts The Bullets. Not really feeling it… are you?
– J. J. Barea has no hard feelings towards Andrew Bynum for the elbow given in Game 4 of the series, but Bynum is feeling more pain, being fined more than $700 grand and suspended for 5 games beginning next season. Yikes.
– Phil Jackson is going home w/ a sweep and he doesn’t mind. He says that right this moment, he is content and does not intend to return to coaching. 6 months down the line, maybe, but now, no. Damn super coach. Didn’t like your team much, but you were the SHIT!
Now… Onto the STATS! Gonna make it short, being that all of you know what the hell went on.

Memphis Grizzlies against the Oklahoma City Thunder for Game 7! Great series battle, who the hell is gonna take it? Personally feeling both teams, but OKC got my vote. That starts today at 3:30p EST on ABC!
