NBA wisdom from TV’s talking heads

Interesting quotes from this evening’s TNT broadcast:

(during Game 1, Cle @ Chi) 

“Cleveland is in trouble.”
Sir Charles (Barkley) … during ‘At the Half’, with the Cavaliers up by 4 pts (Cle 51, Chi 47) and Lebron having already scored 26 pts.

“It ends tonight.”
Charles Barkley … during ‘At the Half’ of Game 1 (Cle @ Chi), re: the Houston Rockets’ team record 16-game winning streak.

“He’s never been a Champion … but he’s always been a Winner.”
Doug Collins … re: Joe Smith, early in the 4th Quarter of Cleveland’s eventual loss at Chicago.

“The game in the NBA … is a game of match-ups.”
Doug Collins … explaining in simple, succinct terms what’s ‘at the Heart’ of understanding how it works in the world’s best ‘pro’ hoops league.

UPDATE:

(following Game 2, Hou @ Dal)

“Sam understands that you can’t compete with your teammate. You can only bolster him and push him.”
Kenny (the Jet) Smith … explaing some of what he shared with Sam-I-Am-Cassell, ‘lo those many moons ago’ with the Champion Houston Rockets

“He might not win the game … but, he won’t lose it for you …”
Kenny Smith … extolling some of Cassell’s value to the Boston Celtics.v.2008
