I Don’t Think We’re In Canada Anymore, Biyombo
In today’s special Eastern Conference Playoffs Edition of My Three Cents, we take a look first at a new dimension of fan participation. One of Cleveland’s finest shiny-headed residents felt the need to remind Dwane Casey what city he was in during Game 5 of the playoff series between the Cavaliers and the Raptors. After the fan shouted “You’re in Cleveland now”, the gentleman and Mr. Casey stared at each other awkwardly, which tells me that the guy was actually so drunk, that he didn’t know where he was, and he was waiting for Dwane Casey to confirm this by say “I know” or something.
The Lower Score, Not the Lowry Score
After the game, a young Kyle Lowry took the podium with his teammate, DeMar DeRozan, to discuss their team’s 100-60 blowout loss against LeBron James’ Cavaliers. During the press conference, either someone had set down a menu with the stadium’s beer prices in front of Lowry, or it was really the box score sheet, which Lowry had not seen yet. The result: he looked like he was going to put his hands on his face and scream like the team had flown back to Toronto without him. It’s a good thing his eyes didn’t pop out of his sockets: his aim is so poor, that he probably would have popped them back into his mouth. Now if only his eyes could be open as wide on the court.

Draymond Wars: Return of the Blind-eye
If Draymond Green’s confidence was really that wounded by being picked 35th in the draft, it surely must be healed by now. Despite the fact that he kicked Steven Adams relentlessly in the ball-basket, despite the fact that he has a flagrant three hanging over his head, despite the fact that he was just fined $25,000, despite that he tripped Enes Kanter, Mr. Green has been elected to the 2015-16 NBA All-Defensive First Team (he’s certainly defensive enough about his actions to qualify). Oh well, I guess given his regular season stats, he was a “shoe in” for the award. Someone in the league office really had “balls” to allow this. I hope Mr. Green will “kick it” into high gear now.
…and that’s My Three Cents (if you didn’t stop reading after the first horrible pun)
