    Not enough handicappers/gamblers focus on the final two minutes of the game when the natural outcome and pointspread outcome are often decided.

    Which happens more often: The natural outcome is decided in the final two minutes OR the pointspread outcome is decided in the final two minutes?

    Other random notes:

    I focus on who starts the game and more importantly who finishes the game.

    Indiana head coach Pokey Chatman has been awful in several end-game situations.

    The Chicago Sky is better than their record (or scores) indicates.

    And here's one of my favorite angles: During a timeout, I love when players are talking to one another before the coach enters the huddle. Smart coaches should stay quiet when players are communicating with one another.

    Okay.

    So I'll assume you're not interested in Wednesday night's game between Las Vegas and New York where Bill Laimbeer, the teacher, will meet Katie Smith, his student.

    Interesting to note: Katie's team loves to shoot the three-ball (nearly 24 attempts per game) while Bill's team prefers to work the ball inside (only 10 attempts from beyond the arc per game).

    What he lacked in skills, he made up by being a punk-ass bitch on the court. Thankfully the NBA cleaned up that part of the game.

    He didnt lack skills, he led the nba in rebounding and was a deadly 3 pt shooter. Nba is now a sewer because of fans like FairWarning

    Nice job by Mystic last two keeping Sun from biggest comeback in WNBA history. If there is a better player than a healthy Delle Donne in the league I haven't seen her....

    I was a big Laimbeer fan
    I’m quite sure he was under rated and an over achiever with a great shot
    What Laimbeer did and he did it masterfully
    Was to psych out his opponents
    Not with intimidation like so many others
    But with distraction
    So many players would get distracted and lose control and not play well because of Bill's antics
    Psyching out through distraction can be devastating
    And Laimbeer is proof
    His teammate Rodman was great at distracting too.

    Chiney Ogwumike is an elite defender and she was no match for EDD.

    Long and lean with finesse and plenty of mental toughness when physically healthy.

    She's the WNBA version of a young Dirk Nowitzki.

    Celtic announcer Johnny Most despised Laimbeer. Was hilarious listening to him.

    I'll follow tomorrow's matinee game in Atlanta between the Dream and Indiana Fever knowing the two teams wheel back and play two days later in Indianapolis.

    The Fever are 0-9 on the season.

    Indiana general manager/head coach Pokey Chatman is lucky she's employed.

    In 2007, she was fired from her LSU head coaching job because she was romantically-linked to some of her players.

    Hard to find a win for Indiana in the month of June.

    32% might not have been so bad ........It would be fair to say that the NBA and especially The Detroit Pistons from that era played a different style of Basketball -much rougher and much less scoring-
    Carl Yastrzemski led the AL one year with a 301 batting average-
    Laimbeer and the Pistons were one horrible call away from three straight championships. They weren't just very good at what they did - they were great.

    And a fitting nickname for those great Detroit Piston teams...the Bad Boys.
