A Quick Look Back at 2010

Shrek and Donkey was probably my favorite memory of the year.
Shrek and Donkey was probably my favorite memory of the year.

I don't have the time to devote a long-winded article recapping the past year, but since we all lived it I don't think that's all that necessary anyway.  So here are some quick hit memories from the last year (off the top of my head).  Feel free to add your own in the comments.  Happy New Year.

  • .500 ball down the stretch (and oh-fer vs. Atlanta)
  • The Garnett injury/recovery watch
  • The Kendrick Perkins and Rasheed Wallace technical fouls watch
  • Limiting minutes to stay healthy for the playoffs and "The Switch"
  • The Miami series and the disappearing Jermaine O'Neal
  • The Cleveland series - the beginning of the end of LeBron's Kingdom in Cleveland (and the point where we started to believe)
  • The Orlando series - Dwight's deadly elbows weren't enough.
  • Lakers rematch (see more after the break)
  • Stealing game 2 in LA - advantage Boston
  • Dropping game 3 in Boston - advantage LA
  • Shrek and Donkey
  • Up 3 - 2 headed back to LA
  • Losing Kendrick Perkins
  • 6 minutes away from Banner 18
  • Losing Game 7 - ugh
  • Rasheed retires
  • Doc, Paul, Ray, all questionable to return - potential end of era
  • Doc returns and starts the dominoes - Paul and Ray follow suit
  • Tony Allen does not return - ending his own interesting era
  • Free agents Jermaine O'Neal, Shaquille O'Neal, and Delonte West (plus returning Marquis Daniels) added to add depth (there was an NBA draft in there somewhere too)
  • Another blazing fast start to the season
  • Delonte serves suspension, returns to the court, gets in fight with Wafer, hurt again - hope 2011 is more kind to him
  • Injury bug strikes again (West, Rondo, Jermaine, etc.)
  • Big Baby becomes a charge taking machine and 6th man candidate
  • Christmas Day disappointment
  • Garnett hurt too - ending the year on a down note
How will 2011 stack up to 2010?  Can we do one game better this year?  If I have time I'll write about that in the next couple of days.  But for now, feel free to reflect back on the year we just finished.
