Good morning, Goodrich: May 10, 2013

Lakers News:

▷ Metta Wold Peace tweets that “Steve Curry is top 10 player in the NBA.

Mitch Kupchak snubbed in Executive of the Year voting, did not receive a single vote.

“Turns out that’s the fine line between brilliance and not receiving a single vote for Executive of the Year. Even if it’s not his fault the talent he brought together never found it’s way.”

Pau Gasol has tendonosis in knees, needs surgery.

“This surgery could turn out to be a blessing in disguise – one that keeps Gasol in LA.”

‘WTF’ NBA headline of the day:

Crazy middle-finger lady from Heat-Bulls game was once accused of murder.

“Yikes. Talk about an interesting twist to a fascinating photograph. I guess none of us should be surprised that she was crazy enough to shove a middle finger in Noah’s face.”

Controversial NBA headline of the day:

The best coach in the NBA.

“Voters seem to have historically bet that the coach of the “little team that could” must be doing a hell of a job. But giving the award to someone other than who we think is the best coach has robbed the award of a great deal of authority.”

Did you know:

The last time the second-round began without the Lakers or Celtics was in 2007 – before Pau Gasol arrived in LA or the big three formed in Boston.

Gail Goodrich fact of the day:

When he was a 6-1 All-City guard at Los Angeles Polytechnic High School, he was told he was too small to play college basketball.

Quote of the day:

In basketball – as in life – true joy comes from being fully present in each and every moment, not just when things are going your way. – Phil Jackson
