Long sentence? Deal with it

March 22, 2012

Couldn’t help but laugh after reading this extremely long and awkward sentence:

But because the Lakers are strangely scared of the luxury tax, the team dealt him for absolutely nothing last December, throwing both Odom and GM Mitch Kupchak (who you know did not want to make a deal that would cripple his team’s already-nonexistent depth) to the wolves in an attempt to explain away Odom’s fragile emotions in the wake of an agreed-upon but eventually squashed deal that would deal Lamar to New Orleans in a deal that would send Chris Paul to the Lakers.

They won’t be the lead stories in any evening papers, as the since-rescinded Chris Paul trade was, but two minor NBA trades should go down one the NBA allows player transactions at around 2 p.m. Eastern on Friday.

On Kelly Dwyer, the best basketball writer and the biggest jerk on the Internet

November 3, 2011

Apparently, it’s been since the last rapture prediction that this website was updated. And, if this sucker gets updates, it’s to show how Kelly Dwyer makes grammar mistakes.

It’s kind of fun to pick at someone and keep their grammar in check. But those grammar mistakes, silly misspellings and awfully awkward sentences KD puts up aren’t drastic enough to ensure the dude loses his job.

Because, in all honesty, Kelly Dwyer is the best basketball writer on the Internet or elsewhere. I don’t think there’s anyone who’s as obsessed with the NBA as KD is, and I don’t know if there are even as many coaches in the league who put in more time to sit down and pound through game tape like Dwyer does. Read a “Behind the Box Score” sometime, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

You can’t argue with the fact that KD is damn near right 100 percent of the time. And that’s frustrating because there’s nothing more that you want than to say, “This guy is a bozo.”

And those who have? Byron Scott? Commentors on Blog-a-Bull? They’ve wound up looking silly. If you want accuracy, and if you want to gauge how your team is doing from your the perspective of your fellow fans and everyone else, you read some Ball Don’t Lie with Kelly Dwyer at the helm.

Because it doesn’t stop at just the basketball side of it. The dude gets the managerial shit correctly, too. He knows the philosophy that damn near every front office in the NBA implements, and he knows the kind of culture those front offices and coaching staffs want to employ. Sure, we may know that much about our own teams, but I can guarantee you, no one knows that about all 30 NBA teams the way Dwyer does.

All that is accurate, his grammar be damned. But now this is where I let him have it.

The dude’s a jerk. An ass. And, in his own words, a “prat.”

Kelly Dwyer is the ‘greatest writer to ever’

May 27, 2011

This is huge, mainly because it’s the freaking title:

Ouch, KD. Way to leave us hanging. In the post title.

Kelly typoed has typoed again

James turned has turned it over just seven times since the playoffs began, but the 6.4 mark is worth paying attention to because it accounts for pace, minutes, and the sheer amount of possessions that LeBron uses up.

You is a bad writer

Kelly had this to say in reference to Gilbert Arenas:

It looks as if you, more than anyone else, is obsessed with your stat line.
