It is amazing to think that there is only 22 games remaining in the 2006-2007 season. If has certainly flown by. The team looks to be back on track after a bit of an up and down past two weeks, probably due to the injuries sustained by Kurt, Shawn, Boris and Steve.
Getting a little help from a friend before a recent home game.
Thankfully, all but Boris is back (no pun intended, hopefully Boris’ back will be 100% very soon) for what will be our final stretch before the playoffs.
The team came back from All-star Weekend for the most part feeling rested and refreshed – of course for our three All-stars and the coaching staff the break would have felt pretty tiring and short.
I spent the break in Cabo San Lucas with my wife, Jennifer. We were able to leave our two boys at home with their Grandparents, so it was a great relaxing time for Jennifer. There were a number of other NBA players in Cabo, so we were unable to completely get away from the game. It is obviously becoming a favorite travel destination during All-Star break.
Since the break we let a win against Philadelphia narrowly escape us. That win would have set a record for having swept an opposing conference on the road, something that has never been done.
The record would have been nice, but hopefully at the end of the season there is a much greater prize awaiting us. The Philly game came at the end of a week long road trip out east which seemed to go on forever. During the trip we visited Minnesota, Indiana, Atlanta and Philly and at this time of year you sure realize how great the Phoenix weather is.
Many of us spent most of the trip hitting up various malls (indoors of course) and movie theaters Here are a couple of movie revues for those interested:
Number 23 starring Jim Carrey gets two thumbs way down. Stick to comedy Jim. Little Miss Sunshine was a very enjoyable, lighthearted film that had most of us laughing out loud.
Well, that takes care of the prior two weeks. Now we are down for our final six weeks of the regular season and our playoff push.
