It's an early one tonight, chums. When the ball tips off at Philips Arena, happy hour on the West Coast will have barely begun. Is it too early in the day for some drinking-game triggers?
Perish the thought! Here they are:
- Any description of Josh Smith as "long" or "athletic,"
- Any mention of the Hawks passing on Chris Paul to draft Marvin Williams (h/t shaqfor3),
- The Andrew Bynum injury,
- Joe Johnson = 2010 free agent, and
- Any mention of the Lakers' lack of bench scoring.
I got the streets on lock, Atlanta on my back.
