    The Utah Jazz reach the post-season for the second consecutive year, a year in which they were counted out after having lost their leading scorer. The Jazz now face off against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder are not the first round opponent we deserve, but their the first round opponent we need right now. So we’ll beat them. Because they can take it. Because they’re not heroes…

    Ricky Rubio reaches the playoffs for the first time in 7 years. On draft night he exclaimed…

    [​IMG]

    But his train derailed, and he was consistently thrown off. Determined, Ricky found himself a new mentor…

    [​IMG]

    And found himself some new friends, but things weren't always smooth…

    [​IMG]

    But Donovan took Ricky under his wing. He taught him how to be bad, teaching him rhythm, how to be loose with his release, and turning him in to Steph Curry. Ricky learns how to shake it, but not break it.

    (removed Silver Streak clip due to profanity.)

    Ricky: I don’t think we’ll make it past the Thunder.

    Donovan: We’ll make it past the Thunder, I just hope we don’t see Marquese Chriss.

    But Ricky’s playoff train is pulling in to the station…

    [​IMG]

    While the OKC train has a different destination…

    [​IMG]

    And early this morning, Dennis Lindsey announced the Jazz have signed Lewis Scott for the rest of the season, injecting some nasty into this contest.

    (removed Celtic Pride/All the Above video due to profanity.)

    @infection - you've got to screen your videos for profanity before embedding them. Both had to be removed.

    carmelo goes for 55 this is 2009 and okc win.
    mitchell score 12 on absurd 4/19 shooting.

    should be a great series considering the matchups.
    if rubio can't hit open shots it is over from the beginning.
    i hope mitchell establish himself as a superstar after this series, and come next year even better.

    i am not a okc fan. i am a jazz fan and a MELO fan. hope jazz trades for melo to rot the bench.

    The Silver Streak clip is a PG movie and said *** twice. I mean, I get that the new software edits *** but you’ve got to be kidding me.

    The second video I have no clue where this profanity is you speak of... here’s the lyrics to that song...

    Tell me what do you see
    When you looking at me
    (Whoa)
    Who I'm mission to be
    What I'm destined to be
    (Whoa)
    I done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor
    And all the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    Listen
    Really what do you see
    When you looking at me?
    See me come up from nothing,
    To me living my dreams
    I done been to the bottom,
    I done suffered a lot,
    I deserve to be rich,
    Headed straight to the top
    Look how I ride for the block,
    Look how I rep for the hood,
    I get nothing but love now
    When I come through the hood
    Getting this fortune and fame
    Money ain't going to shame
    The new Benz is all white,
    Call it John McCain
    How the hell could you stop me?
    Why in the world would you try?
    I go hard forever,
    That's just how I'm designed,
    That's just how I was built
    See the look in my eyes?
    You take all of this from me,
    And I'm still gon' survive
    You get truth from me,
    But these rappers gon' lie
    I'm a part of these streets
    Till the day that I die
    I wave hi to the haters,
    Mad that I finally done made it
    Take a look and you can tell
    That I'm destined for greatness
    Tell me what do you see
    When you looking at me
    (Whoa)
    Who I'm mission to be
    What I'm destined to be
    (Whoa)
    I done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor
    And all the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    It's easy to hate,
    It's harder to love me
    Y'all don't understand,
    Y'all quickly to judge me
    Put your foot in my Nikes,
    Picture you livin' my life,
    Picture you stuck in a cell,
    Picture you wasting your life,
    Picture you facing a charge,
    Picture you beating the odds,
    Picture you willing to bleed,
    Picture you wearing the scar
    Thank you for making me struggle,
    Thank you for making me grind
    I perfected my hustle,
    Tell me the world ain't mine
    You've been seein' me lately,
    I'm a miracle baby
    I refuse to lose
    This what the ghetto done made me
    I put that on my father
    Tryna hope for tomorrow
    When I think that I can't,
    I envision Obama,
    I envision the diamonds,
    I envision Ferraris
    If the world was perfect,
    All my ****** behind me
    Ain't you happy I made it?
    That I'm making a statement?
    Take a look and you can tell
    That I'm destined for greatness
    Tell me what do you see
    When you looking at me
    (Whoa)
    Who I'm mission to be
    What I'm destined to be
    (Whoa)
    I done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor
    And all the above
    Now up on the spot (spot)
    All the way from out on the block (block)
    I hustle hard cause it's all the same
    And you know that crime don't stop
    Just 'cause I rose to the top
    And everybody knows my name
    Still grindin' (still grindin')
    Still hustlin' (still hustlin')
    No more pain (no more pain),
    No more sufferin (no more sufferin)
    To my ladies and my shorties and my thugs,
    And the dancing starting to love
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    All the above
    Tell me what do you see
    When you looking at me
    (Whoa)
    Who I'm mission to be
    What I'm destined to be
    (Whoa)
    I done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor
    And all the above

    ETA: oh, okay on second one.

    @mods, can we please make sure nobody has linked Donovan’s post game interview with KK when we won 10 in a row? He says ***. TIA.

    I’m excited. Really anxious to see how we respond after the Portland game. Kind of worried about the refs. Don’t care how they call it, whether it’s tight or they let everything go. Just want to see consistent calls on both ends.

    I'm glad the mods intervened so I wouldn't have to hear the word *** on this holy day.

    The profanity filter is ridiculous, Infection. One of the Jazz's all-time great heroes' favorite words was **** -- of course, everyone knows who I'm talking about, Jerry Sloan. You would think after George Carlin's routine, "The Seven Dirty Words," people would be less rigid about profanity. It's outdated. Sure words have power and are indicative of deep-seated emotion, and they can be hurtful. But I think the nursery rhyme we heard as kids makes the most sense: "Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me."

    Match the intensity and create our own tempo. Constantly run everyone through screens and limit turnovers. Let's go get it!

    I'll probably get more likes for this than saying I think Donovan will be an all-time great.
