Mo Cheeks is being repaid for his ability to relatively tame his Portland crew which has had more arrests than the gang on “The Sopranos.” He’ll be counted to subdue Allen Iverson into attending practice.
With the top two teams recordwise filling their vacancies, the also-rans have to depend on the also-ran coaches or simply ante up for the targets of their desires who are otherwise ambivalent about going to New Orleans, Los Angeles or Toronto.
“Average former coaches like Mike Fratello and Jeff Van Gundy are suddenly in great demand. Even Mike Dunleavy, a lousy former coach, is in line to be hired for one of the new jobs. Go figure.”
Wlady, I’d have to disagree on these coaches. Given the talent of their teams, all of the above had done as well as can be expected and that should be the only thing that counts. You can’t squeeze the NBA championships out of turn-ups, AKA the NY Knicks backcourt.
And, as far as Detroit is concerned, I hope Larry Brown leaves
them quicker than his brother Herb ( which sounds like a character
from the Simpsons). I know if I had a home in Malibu, I would

This may seem like a quibble, but do you normally blog about teevee shows almost nobody watches? The NBA finals got a six rating in the Nielsen fast nationals. They ranked third or fourth in each half-hour.
For the overwhelming majority of people who don’t watch the
games, you might want to do some Dick-and-Jane stuff. Like which
teams are playing, who the most important players are, how they got
to the finals, why they’re playing in the middle of June…basic
stuff. Your blog reads like hieroglyphics without a Rosetta stone
for most of us.

Re: David Ross’s Man Is the Endangered Species
The David Ross article was on the mark. I have been involved in the wet lands buffer issue on a 4-lot split. We have done extensive research on the buffer issue and have found no scientific evidence to support the need for any buffers. San Diego County initially required a 200 foot buffer and the Fire District added another 100 foot. This wiped out the entire project. The interesting question is, who in the County government is directing its environmental agenda?
More articles like this are needed.

After having lived in North San Diego County for ten years during the 70’s and having witnessed the first expansions of mass housing, condo’s, real estate development and the draconian California Coastal Commission, I read with resigned, head-shaking amusement the comic opera which continues amid some of the most valuable, overpopulated, and beautiful land on the continent.
It appears the day will soon be upon Sandy Ego when one will no
longer be allowed to transfer deed of ownership if English is one’s
primary language. Of course, that’s assuming the environmental hug
police still allow the private ownership of property.

Maybe the greens should check out Malibu where Barbra Streisand
lives. The link below shows an aerial view of B.S.’s home
overlooking the ocean. Zoom in on the photo and check out that big
ol’ pipe sticking out of the cliff right below her property (at
left of her property). God only knows what evil bilge pours from
that pipe, infecting the beach and ocean below. Click here: California Coastal

Re: jimi izrael’s Saving Mike Tyson:
Mr. izrael, I’m glad you wrote this column. I am not a sports fan, nor a Tyson fan, but I have a sick feeling this man is going under with no one to help him.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
