I have a feeling your Nets are going to win every home game and the Continental is gonna be rocking!:D Maybe refs will be fair to Nets on their homefloor. I think you guys can sneak one out in LA. Series isnt over yet IMO.
GOOD LUCK!!:)

Sure the Nets will win at least one game at home (I hope) but I don't see them winning all 3. The Lakers are just too good to let the Nets beat them 3 straight times. Shaq is putting up 40 points and 15 rebounds a game, and he is finally hitting his free-throws. You can't win when he does that. :cry:

Just an FYI, the home team has never won all 3 of their games in the 2-3-2 format.

Also Jersey is Shaq's hometown. I'm sure he would love to win it in his city.

True but that format hasn't existed for that long, has it ? Do you know when that came into effect ?

malone to NJ?

bizzy, whats the heads up on this article? Who would you trade? Malone in the east would rest his body more than being in the west.

http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/0,1249,405010326,00.html

Karl Malone trade rumors refuse to die.
A columnist for the Journal News in White Plains, N.Y., reported Friday that the New Jersey Nets will inquire about the Utah Jazz star's availability this summer.
Citing a "source close to team ownership," columnist Ian O'Connor — writing from El Segundo, Calif., site of the Los Angeles Lakers' practice facility — said you could "bet on (Nets GM) Rod Thorn making a phone call as smart as the one he placed to Phoenix last year. That call will go to Salt Lake City, where the Mailman might be packaged and shipped to an overnight destination closer to the NBA throne."
Thorn declined to confirm that report, saying, "Like all organizations we'll sit down at the end of the year and see what we can do to get better. We're very happy with our team. We've come a long way, but we still have some growing to do."
O'Connor offered the opinion that the Nets will need to improve if they expect to return to the NBA Finals, and that the addition of Malone would give them some much-needed muscle.
Mentioned in the column was the Jazz's interest last season in Nets forward Keith Van Horn, who reportedly was the subject of a trade offer involving Utah's Donyell Marshall and Bryon Russell.
O'Connor quoted one unnamed league executive who said, "I think Utah would definitely be interested in moving Malone and getting younger, with Van Horn as the core of a package. Van Horn's value had been down, but he's made enough big shots in the playoffs now to revive some people's interest."
Malone, meanwhile, in an interview on KUTV-Channel 2 Friday night sounded peeved about comments Jazz owner Larry H. Miller made that gave the impression the team would be reluctant to offer Malone an extension on his current contract, which expires after next season.
"They might tell me how long I'm gonna play here, but they ain't gonna tell me how long I'm gonna play," Malone said.
In unrelated Jazz news, the Denver Post reported that the Denver Nuggets have received permission from Jazz management to discuss the head coaching job with Utah assistant coach Phil Johnson. Johnson apparently told the Post that no interview with Nuggets GM Kiki Vandeweghe has been scheduled yet.

Yeah, c'mon Nets. You owe Bizzy this one after making her sit through games 1 and 2. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing you win a few as well.

Go Nets

yeah, i read a few articles on the possibility of a malone trade too. well, basically, the nets are denying that they talked to the jazz about malone. plus, they don't want to trade van horn and kittles (well, another article said k-mart) to the jazz in hopes that keeping all of their current players (meaning van horn, kittles, k-mart) will encourage kidd to stay in jersey. also, malone and byron scott have some kind of rivalry going on that dates back to scott's playing days. oh yeah, and one more thing, the nets don't want malone because they said he might only have a year or 2 left in his career. if you want to see this article, i'll gladly look for it for you and post it here.

LOL sorry, natural reaction. Althought it seems that way it wasn't my intent. I just wanted to share an intresting fact.

Then again nobody won a game 7 on the road in conference finals history until the Lakers did. So history has to start somewhere. (does that bring your optimism up :D)
