Sit Calls For Better Effort From All-Star

Image

SACRAMENTO, May 19 (AP) – Seattle Stealth Head Coach Will Sit has called out All-Star Centre Andrew Bogut ahead of Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Sit stated that Bogut needed to be more aggressive and that his team mates were putting the ball down low into him because they trusted him.

“Andrew is no use to this team if he isn’t scoring in the post,” Sit frankly said, “If we want him to sit there and look pretty, we’ve already got David (Lee), Chris (Wilcox) and Rocky Akonnor for that.” Bogut has taken a backseat to Kevin Durant, Reshawn Tyson and Allen Iverson during this postseason. Sit has reasoned that it is due to the style of play that the team has come up against.

“I think that Andrew has not really been able to run with his strengths because we’ve played the Warriors and Blazers so far. I do think the Kings play more of a half court set and that’s when we really need Andrew firing,” Sit stated, “I am pleading with my guys to really move the ball and get it in the post. It will open up the floor for us. We just need Andrew being aggressive and scoring buckets.”

Stealth Exciting Win Edges Them Ahead 2-1
Game 3, Western Conference Finals, 2013 NBA playoffs: Seattle Stealth at Sacramento Kings 125-118 (Seattle leads 2-1)
Preview | Boxscore | Recap | Highlights

Image

MAY 20, SACRAMENTO (AP) – Moses Chara had his turn of losing his cool with his team mates after the Kings squandered a golden opportunity to win Game 3. Chara scored 23 points and added a career playoff high 17 assists but his monstrous effort was wasted as the Stealth battled back to win the game.

It was a 30-15 fourth quarter that helped the visiting side claim the series lead and the momentum seems to be firmly in the Stealth’s favour entering Game 4. “My teammates were just (expletive) tonight,” Chara trashed the Kings, “They think they can just rely on me every single game then they’ve got to think again. I can’t defend five guys all at once. Oh, make that six because the refs were giving some conspicuous calls out there tonight.”

Michael Redd shot the ball well again on his way to 20 points and Joe Alexander added a career playoff high of 18. However, it was Al Jefferson’s performance, or lack thereof, that raised Chara’s eyebrows. Jefferson was 3 for 8 from the field as he struggled to get position in the post against the Stealth’s Andrew Bogut.

“My man Al has got to step up. I didn’t ask the front office to trade Kevin (Martin) for Al to come here and sit his fat ass in the key,” Chara stated, “Ok Al, I got a suggestion for you. What about you go and score some buckets and make yourself useful?” Jefferson took the criticism well, “He is the league MVP so he knows what he’s talking about.”

Bogut was outstanding for Seattle as he answered his Coach’s call for him to step up his game. The Australian All-Star collected 27 points, 12 rebounds and 2 blocks. Kevin Durant led Seattle with 28 points. Durant was devastatingly brutal from the get-go despite a locker room blow-up with fellow All-Star Reshawn Tyson after Game 2. Tyson finished this one with 23 points and 8 rebounds.

Jason Kidd, who continues his impressive postseason run with 12 points, 10 assists, 7 rebounds, was pleased with his team’s performance. “I love how we did not let up when we were down big points in the last quarter. We fought to the end and I am proud about that. We could have given up and waited for Game 4 but we showed some fighting spirit,” the veteran stated.

Kidd also deflected questions about Durant and Tyson, “Those two guys are fine. It was only a slight misunderstanding. When you are in the heat of the moment, you sometimes do stupid things.”

Chara promised that he would take care of things in the next game, “I’m going to come out and show everyone why I am the best player in the world.”

Notes: Allen Iverson has endured many up and down performances this postseason Game 3 was another down one as he scored 8 points on 3 for 11 shooting. The Answer blames his inefficient outings for his yo-yoing minutes… The biggest lead that the Kings held against the Stealth was 21 late in the second quarter… Chara was fined again by the league office for his language used in the podium interview as well as swearing on national television. Chara did not seem concerned, “I’m a walking mint”…

Nice win, I too felt that the Bogut article meant something, was a bit too obvious perhaps. :P I love the fact that you've got it all so competitive and stuff, great going! Go get two more wins now, shut Chara down. Even though I sort of enjoy his cocky attitude. Goodluck in game four.

MESSAGE TO THE READERS

Thank you everybody! These milestones seem to come up pretty often now. It's good that this is still kicking and alive.

I just want to say thank you for the support and well wishes for my team. As I have stated before, the Stealth will go on for at least another virtual season (my aim is for 2). I have reached the 2000 replies mark and I have also passed Badreligionau's view count (not to mention that he started his earlier than mine). The reason I bring that up is because I see him and Martti as my main competition for Story of the Year (No offense to Valor, Lamrock, Clutch). I am very competitive so I do hope I can scrape through with a win for the inaugural award. So for me to surpass him in view count and for me to reach 2000 replies are 2 milestones for me.

Again, I thank you - the readers - as none of this is possible without all of you.

Shout-outs are as follows. Once again, do not feel snubbed if you are not mentioned as this is only off the top of my head.

Lamrock - I trust reads every word I put up and knows all the ins and outs of ALIB. Once again, thanks to him, this is still possible. Keeps me motivated to keep churning out updates.

Valor - Thank you for what you wrote above. You could have been classy by reserving that spot for this post. :P Just kidding!

Hova - My dynasty brother. :) I still hate you for resurrecting the Sonics. No - not really. :) Thank you for continued support and generous praise.

Marrti - My favourite dynasty maker on the forums. (Y)

Thierry, Chris0o, Hondo, Dare, The X, puttincomputers - You guys are awesome for still following after so long.

I know that I've missed a lot of dudes out. Sorry, I'm just super tired. :(

Thanks for everything again guys. Stay fresh and keep it real!

There's a story of the year. A mix of the top 3 Live stories and the top 3 associations. There can only be 1 story of the year.

Martti won Dynasty of the Year. I won Association of the Year.

Now comes down to Story of the Year.

Everyone please vote 1 Sit (by pming Martti ASAP) and don't give preferences out to anyone else. :P

Thank you.

Wow, I feel with you as we had a soccer game today against the only team that has not yet won a game (after 13 games). Well, after beating the 3rd and the 5th place (we are around 10th and need to get 8th to stay in this league ...) we lost against those suckers 2-0.

WE JUST CAN'T WIN AGAINST TEAMS THAT SUCK .... fuck it. We win against the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, but loose against the 12th, 13th and 16th. I hate it.

Could it be a subconscious thing? maybe when you guys know they are the winless team you kinda lose the edge you have against those strong teams

Sit, as I said on fb/msn, just work hard and improve for a revenge next time, nothing you can do about it :wink:

I didn't even have a chance to change it.


That bites man. that would've made me sick to my stomach espec. if you had the hot hand :?

Reminds me of a league I played in once. We were the second worst (if not THE worse) team since we had this hack Iverson-wannabe point who killed us every game with his bonehead shoot-first mentality, poor decisions and fancy forced passes i.e., turnovers. We got trashed repeatedly in some laughable blowouts.

I played SF and in one game vs the 2nd best team, we're actually hanging down to the closing minute somehow (they obviously didn't take us seriously) but still trailing by 4. the crowd of family & friends as well as two other league teams playing just after us, is going nuts sensing a major upset. I'm in the adrenaline 'zone' after making some crucial defensive stops and my shot is also locked-in falling from silly range. My mind is calm and clear except for one thought, "TAKE OVER" and everyone on the court feels it. I'm fouled on a drive and hit 2 FTs to close within 2. We have one sub-10 second possession left after/if we can get a stop.

Ball goes the other way and they force a shot which I board with just over 7 secs to spare. I wave off the PG (lol) and charge the ball up myself seeing two defenders and a third on his way to meet me at the top of arc. Everything seemed in super slo-motion even though I'm full tilt speed with guys jumping out arms raised. Somehow I elevate, clear them all and could release without being blocked but spot my bud (not the PG) in my right peripheral WIDE OPEN waving his hands.

I dish it as I'm clobbered but it’s a perfect pass that he's stepping right into. Catch, elevate, release no one within a mile of him and feet inches behind the 3pt arc going for the win. Three defenders and I watch it leave his fingertips, perfect form, horn sounds in midair like a movie… it's on line but too hard, rattles in and out. My heart sunk and I felt like puking but I still got a lot of "good game"s from the winning squad.

Anyway, not quiet as painful as getting looked off by your bud Will, but still kinda PO'ed at myself for not gunning the last one. I'd bet money you didn't sleep a wink :lol:

btw, 'grats on the milestone (Y)
