Not bothering to graciously wait until the season actually ends this year are we?
The season has mathematically
ended, that's close enough.
I came to know that it'd be you that would make the push to unseat me, and not Scott, only about a week ago, and when I mapped out all of the possible scenarios, I **** my pants when I learned that you could still win. Immediately I saw that you would need to pass Scott in 3's and Reb, and that looked like a real possibility up until last night when Marion and Stoudemire flopped, and Marion, Terry and Davis failed to hit any 3's.
At the same time I was limping to the finish without Arenas, Jefferson, and Sheed and was trying to hold Bug off in the Pts department, but unless Baron Davis can clean the glass to the tune of 37 boards and hit 7 shots from behind the arc, it won't matter that Bug claims the "Pts" point tonight, because the final standings will be Dressel 49.5 to Defending Zods 47.5 (excluding a possible 0.5 to tie Venture in FG%).
That's rock solid mathematical elimination.
It wasn't easy, I was sweating this one out night by night for the past week, and if you look at my post from 3 weeks ago, I did state even then before I was aware that you'd make that realistic last push that I should "never count Rob out," and I was right.
