Dick Strikes Back

February 13, 2009 – 4:03 am by Hickey

We’ve already told you that Dick Stockton is the bane of Chicago’s existence. Multiple times. And we still mean it even after living through Blago.

Thursday night, Dick was at it again, behind the microphone for the Bulls’ game against the Heat. And once again, it did not work out well for Chicago.

After a crazy Bulls rally to tie the game, Kirk Hinrich stole Miami’s inbounds pass with 4.7 seconds left to set up the Bulls for, at the very worst, overtime. And thanks to the NBA’s ridiculous rule that you get to inbound the ball in the frontcourt after a timeout (and people wonder why people hate the NBA — reason 193), a winning shot seemed much more likely.

But the Heat intercepted Thabo Sefalosha’s inbounds pass with 3.5 left on the clock to set up their own play at the other end of the floor.

That play was rather simple. Shawn Marion got the inbounds pass from Dwyane Wade and blew past, er, no one, for a game-winning dunk with a second remaining.

Just another soul-crushing loss. Bravo, Mr. Stockton. Bravo.

  2. Sorry, but as good as the cubs are this year, and were last year, your still the cubs. Not gonna happen chicago, I’m sorry but the cubs were made to drive you all crazy so St. Louisans can laugh when we watch your fans cry in the playoffs.

  3. I’m confused. Whose “still the cubs” is it? Well anyway, enough nitpicking. Maybe you can all laugh because Tony LaRussa cries enough for the whole city. Oh, and Joe Buck sucks. And the arch? It’s okay. Just okay though. Good ribs. I’ll give you that.

  4. Actually, I’m surprised Steve did not jump in with a clever retort about St. Louis’ NBA franchise. Oh wait…

  5. Well, Dick called the White Sox/Twins one game playoff. That turned out pretty good for you.
