This is where this is supposed to go right? I remember seeing one for last season. Apologies if ABP.

Anyways, D'ANTONI! Stoked. Might get some Laker tickets this year. They'll be fun to watch for the first time since the fuckin' '80s.

The Lakers are off to a great start, if they keep it up they won't be in the play offs!!

My Cavs look good, hopefully everyone heals up and they get back to winning!!

Fuck Lebron!!

I think it's kind of hilarious to see the Lakers failing so badly when everybody was so convinced that their raft of aging stars would turn them into an instant championship contender. The seasons not over yet but I'm looking forward to the Warriors taking that final playoff spot in the west from them.

Melo was lovin' that Laker win the other night...rubbing that shit in D'Antoni's face w/ aggressive dunks and shit...You Laker fans gotta realize, players hate D'Antoni and do NOT listen to him. He is not the guy who can wrangle the egos of Howard or Bryant...you know who could of done that though...JACKSON! It's gona be a miserable year for Laker fans...Bruce Murray was saying how he thinks D'Antoni was a one-hit-wonder in Phoenix on the radio today...

That's why we've gotten so lucky with Woodson coming in...guy has the ear of Smith, Melo, Chandler Etc...and all the guy's respect him. It's nice he isn't afraid to yell at them and get them in check either.

Rudy Gay has always been solid player.... Houston drafted him then immediately traded him away for Battier lol. I believe the raptors are in the mix as well. Bargnani straight up for Rudy, which wouldn't make sense for Memphis on account of their 2 scoring big men they're paying a shit ton for. Plus Rudy to me seems like a big part of that core.


It's funny to see people trip on how many all-star votes Lin has. As if this hasn't been going on for years. Every year same shit. Wouldn't be shocked if Tmac and Yao made west starters, and Iverson starting for the east.

I think the 24 hour fitness and sleep train guy wants to keep in Sac. But it'd be awesome to have another team in Seattle. Don't think an expansion team will work. Only a existing team that the NBA approves of the move would work.

Jennings is probably the Franchise player for the bucks, since he's younger than Monta.

Some good match ups coming up this week really looking foward to Golden State vs Miami on Wednesday Miami's gonna bring the heat looking for some revenge after that last second let down earlier in the season it would be rad to see GS sweep the season series agianst Miami.

5 games above 500 and 6th place in the East without your number one option/play maker is pretty damn good. I still don't think Rose should come back this season as much as I'd like to see that. One playoff appearance vs a whole carreer not worth the risk.

Yeah I've agree it'd pro,ly be better for him to wait til next year but realistically I doubt they'd do it. After all the Adidas hype & rose own competitive nature, he's gonna play with minimum minutes at least. Thibs is smart enough to manage that tho he'd prolly start, get benched early, then put me back out when they need a run. Hopefully rose gets that jumper down pat so he can score without his body taking such a beating. He's quick enough & got the handles to cross the fuck outta anybody. Just hit a lil dribble move, create some space, SPLASH!

Sixers will be killing it if they get the best center in the east (sorry Tyson Chandler) in their lineup for 2012-2013 season.

Love to see my bulls SMACK THE DOG SHIT out of the hawks with that 40 piece win. They're really starting to look pretty good in the east without rose. Dunno how good he'll be when it gets back cuz it usually takes a year to fully recover from an acl tear but if he can st least play at 75%-80% they'll do some damage in the playoffs

5 games above 500 and 6th place in the East without your number one option/play maker is pretty damn good. I still don't think Rose should come back this season as much as I'd like to see that. One playoff appearance vs a whole carreer not worth the risk.

Yeah I've agree it'd pro,ly be better for him to wait til next year but realistically I doubt they'd do it. After all the Adidas hype & rose own competitive nature, he's gonna play with minimum minutes at least. Thibs is smart enough to manage that tho he'd prolly start, get benched early, then put me back out when they need a run. Hopefully rose gets that jumper down pat so he can score without his body taking such a beating. He's quick enough & got the handles to cross the fuck outta anybody. Just hit a lil dribble move, create some space, SPLASH!


Stacey King is just the greatest, I wish the Raps comentators could be half as entertaining "don't do it to him white mamba" hahahahaha

Last week, I was working the D-League Showcase.  The Lakers' rookie center and last pick in the draft (60th of round two), Robert Sacre, asked me where the bathroom was.

Today, in Portland my sister waited on rookie center Meyers Leonard at her sushi restaurant.  He was the Blazers 11th pick.

I always wondered if Russell had a really bad shooting night and focused more on passing, all the while Durant got really hot on the floor, what he could do in terms of points. That would be incredible to see. 52 points on like 13-31 shooting? That is an awe in itself.

That'd be a good matchup.

I feel the clippers would get the 2nd seed. (1st is OKC). THat means the warriors would be the 7th seed in order to play the clippers.

I think the warriors would get the 5th or 6th seed. Spurs could be the 3rd seed.

Here is my 8 Western conference predictions.

1. Oklahoma City
2. LA Cliipers
3. Spurs
4. Denver
5. Memphis
6. Golden State
7. Utah
8. Portland or Rockets

haha forreal that shit had me dying. I'd only believe it if he said the first time watching it THIS year. lol



Anyways as we get closer to the trade deadline, all these analysts coming out of the woodworks to speak on possible trade scenarios. One in particular caught my attention.


Quote
Let?s swap Pau Gasol for Josh Smith.  It gets Pau out of toxic Lakerland for his own good and lets him pair up nicely with All-Star big man Al Horford. Smith could make a big splash in L.A. and save the season or be permitted to walk off into free agency. If that happens, it?s addition by subtraction, since coach Mike D?Antoni and the stats show that Gasol and Dwight Howard do not work effectively together.  Lakers have to take the baggage of Johan Petro, DeShawn Stevenson and Ivan Johnson to make it work.

out of all the Gasol trade talks this seems to make the most sense team-wise & financially. LA would have to pick up those extra players but that's kinda what they need right now anyway. Deshawn Stevenson would fit well in D'Antoni's system (which im still skeptical of) and an uber-athletic frontcount with good friends Dwight Howard & Josh Smith would be ill. Gasol & Horford would fit as well with both of them being able to go back to their more natural positions.

I also wanna see if the Kings/SuperSonics are going to trade Demarcus Cousins. Dudes a beast he just needs to be in a better environment in order to grow & mature. Shit while they're at it trade my boy Tyreke Evans outta there as well dude has straight up superstar potential but they're stunting his growth tryna mix & match him with their logjam of guards on the roster. Dude started off as a starting point guard, got moved to shooting guard, and now they got him playing as an undersized small forward? Fuck outta here let that boy shine! Preferably, on my Chicago Bulls. Even if they don't trade him i already know he's opting for free agency once the offseason comes

Wonder if the Lakers will trade Dwight, he can sign with the lakers or a free agent in July.

Don't know if he is happy in LA, but i heard Brooklyn is trying to get him.

Forgot the details, read it in a bleecher report here:

I love how he claims this will be the first time he watches this game, classic Kobe.


haha forreal that shit had me dying. I'd only believe it if he said the first time watching it THIS year. lol



Anyways as we get closer to the trade deadline, all these analysts coming out of the woodworks to speak on possible trade scenarios. One in particular caught my attention.


Quote
Let?s swap Pau Gasol for Josh Smith.?  It gets Pau out of toxic Lakerland for his own good and lets him pair up nicely with All-Star big man Al Horford. Smith could make a big splash in L.A. and save the season or be permitted to walk off into free agency. If that happens, it?s addition by subtraction, since coach Mike D?Antoni and the stats show that Gasol and Dwight Howard do not work effectively together.?  Lakers have to take the baggage of Johan Petro, DeShawn Stevenson and Ivan Johnson to make it work.

out of all the Gasol trade talks this seems to make the most sense team-wise & financially. LA would have to pick up those extra players but that's kinda what they need right now anyway. Deshawn Stevenson would fit well in D'Antoni's system (which im still skeptical of) and an uber-athletic frontcount with good friends Dwight Howard & Josh Smith would be ill. Gasol & Horford would fit as well with both of them being able to go back to their more natural positions.

I also wanna see if the Kings/SuperSonics are going to trade Demarcus Cousins. Dudes a beast he just needs to be in a better environment in order to grow & mature. Shit while they're at it trade my boy Tyreke Evans outta there as well dude has straight up superstar potential but they're stunting his growth tryna mix & match him with their logjam of guards on the roster. Dude started off as a starting point guard, got moved to shooting guard, and now they got him playing as an undersized small forward? Fuck outta here let that boy shine! Preferably, on my Chicago Bulls. Even if they don't trade him i already know he's opting for free agency once the offseason comes


The Kings/Sonics would have to be crazy to shop Cousins you're just not going to get back matched value, dude's capible of avg 25 and 15 in the near future I think they just need the right coach/mentors. I fully agree with you on 'Reke though he's on my all NBA "Free" team (Stuckey,Kanter,Favours,Dragic) dudes that have so much potential but are rotting away on bad teams. Josh Smith to the Lakers? that would be AMAZING.......on paper.

Relations between the 2 haven't been so good the past couple of years. He most likely won't sign back to Atlanta this offseason when he's a free agent so they might as well get rid of him now & get something back in return.

Pretty sure it's the same for a lot of players. They could find a better deal. Gasol probably makes just as much as he does if not more. Houston is supposedly in the mix. I would be the happiest dude alive if this were to happen. He's showed interest in playing here. Harden/Smith.... yikes.

Hopefully Curry gets to be a all-star if one of the starters or reserves can't play.

But how the fuck can KG be a starter? Fool isn't even a true center. Tyson Chandler should start. KG doesn't even deserve to be an all-star this year.

Steph deserves that spot. KG should not even be in it, in my opinion. Sub .500 team with 1 all-star all ready. Come on. If the fans didn't vote him in, he would not even be in the all-star game. Saying that, Dwight should not be a starter on the West side. I believe that fucked up the reserves.

yeah, Dwight too. Of course Kobe should be in, his stats prove that. Dwight is just popular and of course all-star starters are a popularity contest.

Lakers won't even make the playoffs, team Record + stats should make an all-star team.

Warriors have been sucking the past decade and finally got their first all-star since '97. Lee is in because he is doing good + the team. But Curry is more valuable than Lee. Curry was out most of last year and Lee was healthy but the team still sucked.

Now they're doing good it's because Curry is in playing regularly, plus Lee is playing good again this year.

I rather have Jamal Crawford than Tony Parker. But I guess if you're a vet like that, the coaches will vote you in.

Despite Lakers record and his utterly DREADFUL free-throw shooting, Dwight still deserves to be an all star. Aside from an injured Kevin Love & Demarcus Cousins, what other "front court player" that isn't already on the Western Team can put up close to 16 pts, 12 rebounds, & 2.5 blocks a night? And he's still not fully recovered from that back surgery either. Dwightmare drama & free throws aside, he's still a top 3 (if not number one) center in the league right now.

I agree with yall on the Tyson Chandler over KG in the east, but I guess Garnett still got that clout with the fans and this will most likely be his last one anyway. Glad to see Deng & Noah make the reserve team as well. Chi-Town stand up!

Our GM (Brian Colangelo) is a horrid general manager (drafted Andrea Bargnani 1st overall 1 playoff appearance under his watch in about 9 years signed Hedo Turkolgo to a massive contract ect ect I could go) So obviously this guy is on the hot seat he had 2 options develop our young core for the next few seasons and enter the lottery or make a "big time" trade in an attepmt to save his job.

Rudy Gay is an amazing talent don't get me wrong but he cannot lead a team so now we're stuck with another "franchise guy" that's not really a franchise guy for 3 years destined for at least 2 or 3+ of mediocrity unless something miraculous happens.

Now Toronto is stuck with all that pay roll and no cap room. On paper the deal sounds amazing, but Memphis saved their asses from luxury tax penalties. Detroit even did ok acquiring a passing PG with an expiring contract (Calderon). That leaves them with some cap after this season. Memphis instantly filled the void at the 3 spot with Tayshaun who is virtually the same player as Gay, obviously not as talented, but has been playing better basketball this season. AND a solid big man off the bench in Ed Davis. I think Toronto got the worst end of the stick no doubt.

Now I may be wrong just for the simple fact that I'm not really a fan of the team but I think Rudy gay was a great pick up for the raptors. They get some much needed star-power & a closer. That role may supposedly be bargnati's but dude is like a generic Kroger brand dirk nowitski I'd pick Gay to take over the 4th before him. Like I said I don't really follow the raptors but Calderon & some other guy for ruddy gay is a steal for them. The tandem of him & derozen will be deadly on the fastbreak

I guess we'll have to wait and see.... I'm still skeptical but I'm not going to lie I liked what saw tonight, I haven't seen the Raps play that good from tip off till the finals buzzer in years. Lowry Gay and Derozan is a lot to handle for any team. Still though seeing Memphis play OCK the other night really exposed they're lack of play making ability and is good as Rudy played in his debut the Clippers were without they're number one guy and floor general. I'll be able to make a real asessment come sunday vs the Heat.

haha yeah, rockets scored 140 :o . Crazy Ejection at the end of the game, but yeah first quarter was close and high scoring. But after that Rockets took over.

Only highlight for me was the Curry half-court heave.

Really excited for the stretch of games coming after the All-Star break, good group of games to really go on a few streaks and really bump up the record. Really hyped on the remainder of the year. With the Grizzlies trade that happened and all this changing in momentum for the 4-6 seeds, this will be a interesting year in the western conference.

Indeed,anything after the 3 spot is a toss up I see Denver holding on to third. I can see Golden State faltering a bit  being such an injury prone team it would be awesome to see Houston adavance past the second round for once but if they end up 7th or 8th Spurs or OCK will make quick work out of them.

yeah, i probably see GSW being 5th or 6th seed. But yeah, 7th or 8th will be hard to get to the 2nd round, since it's probably 1 seed spurs, 2 seed OKC.

Both team deep in bench players.

back-to-back games, they're gonna lose. We beat GS on their court. A great, much needed win. Plus I've heard their in talks to possibly acquire Eric Bledsoe so that's something to look forward to. It's clear we need another option behind Harden to score.

raptors are watchable right now, the media and city are embracing rudy gay, and it seems like he's enjoying being in toronto.

I can't believe Memphis traded him. He was the best player on the Grizzlies.
Raptors are going to go far in the playoffs. there the sleeper i think.
well, they are still 11 games below .500, but they seem to have direction, i cant wait for andrea to be out of town, his lack of the thought of the idea of maybe thnking aobut potentially playing defence, its terrible.
chandler dunked on him last night and he was about 4-8 feet from the play.




Agree 100% he showed a bit of energy his first game back but after that all of the little hustle/grit he displayed vanished, that Chandler play was disgusting send his Primo Pasta eating hair gelling manicure getting bitch ass back to Italy

Being from Toronto I didn't like it at first for both sides I liked that Memphis was finally doing well and had a shot at winning the conference. On the Raptors side I didn't think Rudy was a max deal guy, I'm still not 100% sold... but so far he's showing that he is and more. It was purely a money saving move.

Yeah. I guess I can see it. But I was just becoming proud to be from Memphis and proud to rep the Grizzlies more than I already do. But I still have the Celtics as my all time favourite team.

Off the top of my head Boston would make the most sense KG Pierce and Doc would be able to keep him in check and the have they most to return in a Rondo+ a few decent RP's. I'm seeing alot of Dallas rumors aswell, on various basketball sites that one is popping up the most.

It was a decent showing in terms of the events. Dunk contest was ok, 3 point was excellent, and the other events mixed in nicely. Way better than last year's in my opinion. Can't believe our own Big Shot Rob was missing that badly though for the shooting stars. Airball and then like 2 or 3 feet over the backboard, come on.

West beat the East. CP3 got the MVP although you could've easily given it to KD. It's good to see a PG get the trophy though by setting up everyone else, shows the young kids that's there's more tot he game than just scoring the ball. Paul George was balling hard out there to, I think his numbers are going to go up for the rest of the season.

10 NBA Championships and 16 trips to the Finals in a legendary 34 year run.

R.I.P. Jerry Buss.  one of the greatest owners of all time.

this is a cool video they put together for him.

he knew how to live it up at his age. not only was he a notorious gambler, but he was also one of the biggest sugar-daddies in the game.

Despite his age Kobe has been killing it all season. Dude been talkin about retiring next year I say he got as least 2-3 more in the tank. Howard has been playing his part tho since free the all star break. I'm seeing a lot more effort & energy coming from him these past few games. Dude just needs to work on his touch around the rim. I'm sure the torn labrum & back recovery are to blame n some cases but there are alot of shots I feel he should be making. Like as soon as you see him release the shit it automatically looks off. Still, lakers are streaking now & if they can get the win at Denver tomorrow that'll be an impressive road win that'll surely boost their confidence at put them back at .500

Sprus killing it as per ussual. in thier last 20 games they've won 17 all three of those loses have been in OT. I think this team is so good it's almost taken for granted they'd have go on a 34 game losing streak just to be at 500!,that being said I'm picking them to come out of the West they have a deeper bench than last year and they're role guys like Splitter/Leonard have stepped up thier games singificantly.

Joakim Noah was a beast tonight,  Third career triple double.  First player since Shaq in 1993 to have: 23 pts, 21 rebs, and 11 blks in a game.  Hopefully Rose can come back and we can try to make a run at the Pacers since were three games out of first in the division.


Also, Rose dunked multiple times off his surgically repaired leg and landed on both feet (unlike the OKC vid from a few days ago)

Kobe is not playing with these niggas he said they were gonna make the playoffs & the Lakers lookin damn good right about now. I believe that's 12 wins out of their last 17 games.

Noah killed it again tonight, Boozer played well + he was actually tried on the defensive end and Jimmy Butler once again was solid for us.  Big win to move up into the 5th spot in the East.   Tomorrow night is a huge game against the Pacers,  I hope we crush em.

Again we hung in there missing key players (Kirk/Taj).  David West feasted tonight especially considering the fact that Deng was guarding him due to Taj Gibsons mcl sprain a few games ago.  Boozer is still trash, Marquis Teague isn't ready to be playing in crunch time , and Thibs really needs to get Jimmy Butler more minutes the kid can play.  Its on when Rose gets back.

Paul George had an ugly game because of Deng/Butler's defense.  The Bulls miss Kirk Hinrich real bad on offense though Nate Robinson/Teague cannot run the offense to save their lives.  The issue is without Rose's offensive playmaking the Bulls struggle to find easy baskets but luckily they're good enough on defense to hang in games.  Honestly its hard to put a lot of stock into these games they win or lose because if Rose does come back and is healthy its a completely different dynamic.

"It's just sore, not pain, sore and stiffness," Anthony said in a crowded corridor outside New York's locker room. "It's been going on for a while now."

Anthony, who entered the game tied with Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant for the NBA scoring lead, said he underwent an MRI "a couple days ago." He said the test results were negative, and he does not yet know if he'll be able to play Wednesday night when the Knicks visit Detroit.

"Today I just woke up and you know how some days you really don't feel right," he said. "I came out here and I tried to warm up and I thought it was going to loosen up before the game, but some of the things that I was doing I felt like I was dragging it."

Haha pacers/heat wouldn't be too bad & Indiana has potential to make it interesting but I've been waiting since early this season for a melo/lebron & JR Smith/ D'Wade playoff matchup. Spurs vs Pacers for the Finals would definitely cause for a ratings dip tho, lmao.

I doubt it, it is that time where teams will stay competitive for most of the game and then "lose steam" though. But for New Orleans, it looks like they still have fight in them and rightfully so, this draft class doesn't seem or is predicted to be at all that great.

Pretty impressive from Kobe. I can't see them getting past the first round though given how bad their defense is and how much they're relying on him to bail them out of games.

Why even compare Nate Robinson (spark plug/6th man) to Westbrook (allstar all nba) or Parker (finals mvp) they're in totally different categories.  The only reason Nate even starts is because Hinrich is in a walking boot.  As for spending money good luck with that this team is run by Jerry fucking Reinsdorf they Bulls profits fund the White Sox.  


The Bulls gut their bench mob.  Asik who is #2 in rebounding, dump Korver whose one of the best spot up 3pt shooters, get rid of Rose's back up CJ Watson for Nate, Now they're pressuring Rose to play when he isn't mentally ready yet and potentially causing a rift between derrick and management.  It's not a shock that Scottie/MJ trashed the front office after they're were run out of town in the 90s or why Dwayne Wade was critical of the organization saying they're not first class during the mega free agency period two years ago.

It's just completely pointless to be a decent NBA team (if your goal is a championship..JIM?)..

Even with DRose the top 3 teams already shown they can shut him down.. Looks like a Bynum type deal, no point joining a shitty team at this point in the season only to get pumped in the playoffs and risk another injury.

The only team that shut down D Rose when he was healthy was LeBron and the Heat two years ago in the Eastern Conference Finals.  Our front office pretty much took that first title run as: "Yep, we've got enough to beat them we just needed that experience, we'll get em next year."  They were depending on an aging broke down Rip Hamilton to be Rose's second scorer for the Heat showdown and thats just not possible.  The Rip Hamilton of the Pistons glory days isn't walking through the door.  They sign Kirk Hinrich which will put them over the luxury tax, they still haven't used their amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer  despite the fact that they're paying Taj Gibson starter money now.  Luol Deng (who i love) a very good two way player was overpaid from his last contract.  I'm glad Reggie Rose called out the Bulls front office, and I'm glad that Jeff Van Gundy went on that mini tirade today during the Lakers game about how bad the ownership is.

I'm fine if Rose doesn't play this year -- He's said numerous times he isn't comfortable landing after dunks, he's told David Aldridge he has discomfort when cutting to the right, and now Doris Burke reported that his hamstrings are: "on fire".  Yet, the org leaks a story saying that he's fine and not mentally ready.  The front office is a mess and all they're doing is alienating their franchise player.

dont the bulls have the draft rights to some euro-player who's supposed to be like the next Dirk Nowitzki (as in his play style) and they're supposed to sign him next year? I'm a big bulls fan & honestly id rather have D.Rose make a full recovery mentally & physically as opposed to making some struggle-run to the championship. if he were at a 100% it'd be one thing, but it makes little since for him to get back up to speed in the middle of the playoffs or whatever. unless he wanna get on some Jordan vs the Celtics shit let that man recover for the next season.

i always figured they'd amnesty Boozer after this year & make a run for a big name free agent (preferably Tyreke Evans, Josh Smith, or even JR Smith if he were to part with the Knicks) but i dunno they might fuck around on some lame shit & keep him simply because he's played fairly well this season. for the most part they have just about all the pieces needed for a championship team they just need a better backup center and another reliable scorer to step up when Rose gets double-teamed. I thought the bench was weakened from last year but hinrich, bellineli, butler, & robinson have been solid replacements. Losing Asik was the real loss but hopefully we can get another backup big this offseason. ive always hated nazir Mohammed for years dude was always the most garbage backup center on all my teams in 2K lol.

I'm a big bulls fan & honestly id rather have D.Rose make a full recovery mentally & physically as opposed to making some struggle-run to the championship. if he were at a 100% it'd be one thing, but it makes little since for him to get back up to speed in the middle of the playoffs or whatever. unless he wanna get on some Jordan vs the Celtics shit let that man recover for the next season.

i always figured they'd amnesty Boozer after this year & make a run for a big name free agent (preferably Tyreke Evans, Josh Smith, or even JR Smith if he were to part with the Knicks) but i dunno they might fuck around on some lame shit & keep him simply because he's played fairly well this season. for the most part they have just about all the pieces needed for a championship team they just need a better backup center and another reliable scorer to step up when Rose gets double-teamed. I thought the bench was weakened from last year but hinrich, bellineli, butler, & robinson have been solid replacements. Losing Asik was the real loss but hopefully we can get another backup big this offseason. ive always hated nazir Mohammed for years dude was always the most garbage backup center on all my teams in 2K lol.


Nikola Mirotic is the guy you're thinking of he's a stud.  Josh smith would be the best signing out of those guys because of his athleticism if you put a guy like that with Noah in Thibs defensive scheme they would cause some trouble and you know they would rebound the hell out of the ball.  JR Smith would make Thibs just as crazy as Nate Robinson with his shot selection.  OJ Mayo is a free agent and Chicago was heavily interested in him prior to his Mavs signing.  Also a lot of Bulls fans want them to make a run at Kevin love after next year because he can opt out of his contract and he's been close friends with Rose since their AAU/High School basketball days and they work out together in the off season.

Dude it's 2 points! If DJ was such an electric dunker why isn't he in the dunk contest? BECAUSE HE'S 7 FEET TALL AND BARELY HAS TO JUMP 10 INCHES TO DUNK.. This is why the Clippers never win, style over substance. San Antonio/ OKC/ Miami don't play that shit

yeah, it was incredibly clear. it was basically an alley oop with joakim touching the rim. the ball wasnt even near the rim. and its even worse because the nuggets didnt get called on a bucket that was clearly goaltending less than a minute before

Really getting sick of all this controversy over Rose not playing. ive been on various sports blogs n whatnot and some of the comments are insane. niggas really tryna call him a pampered superstar who's too scared to play and comparing him to andrew bynum. ANDREW BYNUM. like forreal shit is absurd out here. so called fans saying he gave up on the team n shit. i been sayin from the get go dude should just sit out for the season & come back next year with confidence. the bulls would look silly as fuck tryna bring him back in the middle of the playoffs. even if he is medically cleared to play aint nobody tryna see a timid derrick rose get his offensive struggle on as he gets his first taste of in-game action in almost a year.

Popping in for Mamba's monster triple double. They way Kobe played last night was something of legend. I can't believe this guy is going to be out of the league in a few years. It's time to start cherishing these games kiddoes.

he's a decent one on one defender when he wants to be. as a team defender he aint nothin special but I've always thought that he wasnt as bad at defense as most people claim he is.

This has definitely been a renaissance year for Kobe (individually speaking). Its been the first season in a while where he hasnt has nagging injuries & dude is bringing it!. These highlight reel dunks happen on the the regular now, not to mention he's shooting more efficiently than he ever has. Dude's game is like fine wine, i really wanna see him bring that to the postseason & cause a few upsets

Don't be so sure of that I'd give the lakers at least a punchers chance. I really liked what I saw against Dallas minus Nash. The lakers definitely have their nine guy rotation ready which is something I can only say about one LA team. Although Manu hasn't neccisarily been huge for the spurs this season he is a big part of there post season aspirations. If he misses the first that has to count for something positive in the minds of the lake show.

^ I'm sure ill sound crazy but I think the west is open for grabs with okc slated to be the favorite. Okc and Denver could potentially run all over the lakers but this is post season basketball. The game slows down a bit with teams actually playing d and working half court sets. This is why I didn't include the clips since cp3 prefers a slower paced game running the half court, doing his best Isaih impersonation. Hypothetically if the lakers pull out the 8 seed I'd say the odd man out would the warriors and maybe the rockets. But as I said this western concerns is as wide open as Amanda Bynes at a hip hop club.

I feel the same way completely. I don't think anyone should just pencil in OKC to come out of the west. TO be honest, I can fully see Memphis going really far this year.

Dwight shoots 80% in practice. It's all mental. Being lectured on his technique is probably only going to stress him out more.

However, a funny stat: dwight has missed more free throws this year than nash has his entire career loloolollolo

It was a good game, not trippin' on it. Just wanted a fair game. That game wasnt that at all.

Take away Howard's foul shots. Still would have bene probably 30+ to 16 in fouls attempts.

If you watched the game you would have clearly seen some calls go towards the lakers.

There was this one play where kobe did a fade away shot and Ezeli stuck his hand in the air, clearly 3-4 feet away from him. He got the call since he spun around and landed off balance, certainly not a foul. Oh, and he's a superstar.

i watched the full game. i know what you mean cuz Kobe gets those bullshit calls all the time.

i'm watching the post-game and Kobe looks like he's been crying. i think he knows his season is over (and possibly the next.)

when asked if he feels like he tore his achilles he said 'yeah'.

i hope his career isn't over because of this.

so bummed now.

Dang, I am a Kobe fan, no doubt. Never wanna see a player like him get hurt seriously. He played the whole game, almost.

I guess his Achilles is why he was missing from the last 3 min from the game or so.

-edit:

he apparently has a torn Achilles.

The Lakers believe Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles. He will have an MRI tomorrow to confirm.

Harrison Barnes got called a foul, barely a reach for the ball, just Kobe's Achilles gave out, this is when Kobe got hurt.

    This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I've done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I'm supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that??

    I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me...Then again maybe not! It's 3:30am, my foot feels like dead weight, my head is spinning from the pain meds and I'm wide awake. Forgive my Venting but what's the purpose of social media if I won't bring it to you Real No Image?? Feels good to vent, let it out. To feel as if THIS is the WORST thing EVER! Because After ALL the venting, a real perspective sets in. There are far greater issues/challenges in the world then a torn achilles. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, find the silver lining and get to work with the same belief, same drive and same conviction as ever.

    One day, the beginning of a new career journey will commence. Today is NOT that day.

    "If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey for the bear". Ive always loved that quote. Thats "mamba mentality" we don't quit, we don't cower, we don't run. We endure and conquer.

    I know it's a long post but I'm Facebook Venting LOL. Maybe now I can actually get some sleep and be excited for surgery tomorrow. First step of a new challenge.

    Guess I will be Coach Vino the rest of this season. I have faith in my teammates. They will come thru.

    Thank you for all your prayers and support. Much Love Always.

And I don't want to take total credit for jinxing Kobe but I did make a post referencing mambas numbered days. If you see me out there I will be pointing the finger at German medicine.

Spurs sign T-Mac for Playoffs
What a weird move. SAS dumped SJackson and now they sign TMac? Don't see how this makes them better but def. adds some veteran winning presence . Going to be an interesting postseason

"Veteran winning presence"? Sure, he's old, but none of his teams ever even made it past the first round of the playoffs (not that that makes him a bad player or anything). I think they just needed a body to fill out their rotations in case one of their role players gets injured; I guess you could do worse than a 7-time all-star scorer for that purpose.

And yes, the Lakers slim post-season chances have pretty much evaporated now that OKC has the #1 seed. At least coach Kobe won't have to suffer their incompetence for very long (probably 5 games max).

Popovic had no idea Tmac was coming in, all upper management hoopla. No surprise if he only plays garbage minutes or no minutes at all. Man san antonio got a old team, still gotta help em with tmac on the sidelines.

As for LA, they have a great shot at an upset now that kobe's gone, praying they don't play SAS, I have a bet with a friend SA wins it all

Props to Curry that's definitely a admirable record to break.

I had a feeling this Lakers/Houston game would go into overtime & that shot by Parsons almost didn't surprise me. Shit was hella clutch tho. Really great game so far feels like its already playoff time. Really want LA to win so they play the spurs & Harden against OKC

Handsome Chandlar Parsons three at the end of regulation had to be one of the luckiest shots of this entire season. Did no one see that shot? It was flatter than plywood, anti-clutch, with no arc. Disgusting really. Buckets is buckets I guess but had he been defended I could have devoted that overtime period to love making. Thanks Handsome Chandlar Parsons.

As much as I love the Lakers its gonna take everything they've got to have a chance at an upset. Dwight's gonna have to dominate defensively as well as capitalize on all his easy buckets as well as make free throws when needed. Gasol has to average close to a triple double & everybody else has to make their 3's and be locked in defensively. With Manu & Parker injured or not playing well they have a chance but like i said its gonna take an all-around A+ effort from LA. anything less & they'll get served.

Pretty much agree with all of that except i think the clips are gonna beat memphis in 7 instead. With Chris Paul leading the way they just seemed primed for a strong championship run. Would not be surprised at all if they won the west.

As the board's resident clipper fan i'll be the first to tell you I want no part of Memphis. This clipper team is too streaky for comfort. I'm still not even sure what the rotation is going be nor do I think do they. There are so many flaws in their game. How many legit defenders does this team have? How many guys can hit a free throw when needed? How many legit big guys do they have to match the bigs of Memphis? How susceptible are they to the pass? The way Blake dunks he's just waiting for an injury happen, what do they do if he goes down? Ryan Hollis and Lamar Odom aren't the answer. Do these guys even want to play for VDN? Winning the WCF would only solidify his return barring they couldn't get Phil. Any one of these guys could take this because home court is not an issue. The clippers definitely have the best player on the court on the court in Chris Paul but they do not have the team better suited for playoff style basketball. In fact they have no identity. CP3 runs the show and everyone else falls in line. Memphis is full of grinders and if what they are saying is true and the chemistry of Paul, Griffin and Jordan is deteriorating then good night see you later if Memphis takes the series 3-2.

Regardless, NBA has the script that keeps atleas 1 LA team advancing past the 1st round. Besides that LAC has Chris paul, and 3 point shooting. Would say dunking but that's not a huge advantage

Good luck Mike Conley and gasol, these dudes are going ot get RAPED in clippland

Despite my Memphis in 7 prediction, the door just opened right up for the clippers to make a serious run. At least my clippers to the WCF prediction from the begining of the season is still in play.

I retract my statement about the Warriors. Lee gone and Ewing theory kicks in.

hha they just put up 130 on the road in Denver, at altitude, without one of their major scorers.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Also Westbrook being out for the rest of the playoffs is fucked, but at least well get to see KD try to carry the team. dude should put up some good numbers. Expect Ibaka to step up too.

The celtics/Knicks game was good to watch down the stretch. Definitely some Boston magic there for a minute, but NY was able to pull it off. Hopefully my bulls get this game 7 tho man, shit is gonna be intense. NY & Chi-town my East coast teams y'all already know who I'm rootin for.

Congrats to all the warriors fans they've always been loyal even throughout all the years they were straight trash so y'all deserve a lil playoff hype. I want em to surprise the spurs & win the series. Steph curry a young beast & I've always liked mark Jackson, so here's to hoping for the underdog upset!

With Westbrook gone this Houston/OKC series is definitely alot more interesting, but man I'd be heated as fuck if Houston pulls it off lol. Memphis/Clips been as good a series as expected. I'd prefer the clips to win but I ain't mad at Memphis cuz they out here ballin on that super-gritty shit. I can fuck with it.

Anyone else think Kevin Martin shoot like a bitch?

I be wettin that shit in 2K so no. His free throw is definitely bitchmade tho, lol

While i totally respect Rose's decision to sit out the season & wait til his knee & his confidence is at 100%, it would be dope to see the bulls get beat by Miami for a couple games cause of their star power, only to motivate him to make a surprise return. It would be some NBA's Greatest Moments type shit if that happened & they managed to win the series. Highly unlikely, and while i expect the Bulls to put up a fight, without the team at 100% i doubt they get 4 wins over Miami. still, ya never know tho. Ima ride with my squad regardless. I aint gon be mad if (or when) miami comes out of the east but i do really hope NY or Chicago beats em. Pacers got a chance too but whatever I aint really fuckin with em.

The only up-side to the loss that it's only game 1. But blowing 18 point lead two games in a row is not a good sign.

It's like the old GSW again, can't hold a lead late in the game. Oh well, maybe a W on Wednesday.

That last spurs possession was a defensive nightmare for golden state. With 3 seconds left you should be doubling no one and some how tp cruiser drew the double, left Manu, not to mention diaw underneath the basket practically wide open, with a passing lane larger than the Grand Canyon, open for the easy outlet pass. Come on now. I know dude was cold but you can't gamble like that in the playoffs.

With that said it was a good loss for the dubs. They know that if their shooting stays hot they can beat them and as long as their key players don't make ticky tac fouls and stay on man late in the game winning in 7 is plausible.

Really?

I disagree. I enjoyed watching Nate when he was with the Dubs. But he is a pretty high risk player, and I do not see 12 inches helping him be more consistent in the ways he contributes to his teams.  Definitely fun to watch.  At times he seems to have all star potential but he also makes some mistakes that keep you scratching your head.  He's like that kid at your local park who does sick shit that gets you hyped, but then he just keeps going to the point where you are no longer impressed.

lol get the fuck outta here I saw that weak ass attempt of a first post you should just kept quiet. In my original post I clearly said "If he was at least 6 feet tall..." Dude is listed as 5'9, so I have no idea why yall actin as if i said he were to move up to power forward or some shit. 3 to 6 inches means he's still a small guard that relies on the same strengths he already has to be effective, but isnt terribly undersized compared to the average NBA player. YOU NIGGAS are the one's whose brains arent functioning, seeing as how you fail to read throughly before tryna come at me with the most irrelevant shit. Nate Robinson at 6'3 is nowhere close to Shaq playing point guard or Yao Ming being 2 feet taller. it is a maximum 6 inch height difference. Theoretically speaking, (the key words to this whole debate) i highly doubt his game would be that much different than it is now, aside from being able to attack the rim thru even more bodies & not being as much of a defensive liability.

you are arbitrarily increasing a players height and then saying they would all of a sudden be a better player because of it, when Nate excels because of his body type, not in spite of it.

Post by: gnidraobetaks on May 07, 2013, 08:35:10 PM
i repeat, if the dude grew to a different height his game would have developed differently. I never said he wouldn't be a good player. You can't just say that if someone were half a foot taller they would be a better version of themselves like all this shit would happen in a vacuum. if you are too stupid to understand that there is no hope for you.

Ok Mr. If-you're-gonna-make-what-if-statements-they-better-be-as-realistic-as-possible-or-else-you're-retarded. All I'm saying is that if Nate Robinson's game was in a slightly taller body, he'd have all-star potential. It's not too hard to imagine a 6 foot guard playing like Nate Robinson. The fact the you even made it a point to insult me because of that statement just goes to show how thirsty you are.

I disagree. I enjoyed watching Nate when he was with the Dubs. But he is a pretty high risk player, and I do not see 12 inches helping him be more consistent in the ways he contributes to his teams. �Definitely fun to watch. �At times he seems to have all star potential but he also makes some mistakes that keep you scratching your head. �He's like that kid at your local park who does sick shit that gets you hyped, but then he just keeps going to the point where you are no longer impressed.

lol get the fuck outta here I saw that weak ass attempt of a first post you should just kept quiet. In my original post I clearly said "If he was at least 6 feet tall..." Dude is listed as 5'9, so I have no idea why yall actin as if i said he were to move up to power forward or some shit. 3 to 6 inches means he's still a small guard that relies on the same strengths he already has to be effective, but isnt terribly undersized compared to the average NBA player. YOU NIGGAS are the one's whose brains arent functioning, seeing as how you fail to read throughly before tryna come at me with the most irrelevant shit.

As was pointed out earlier, Nate Rob's biggest disadvantage is not his height but his brain. Having slightly more length isn't necessarily going to make you a better defender if you can't defend for shit in the first place.

Plus, if he was tall he wouldn't be able to do hilarious stuff like this.

Nate is a sideshow, he goes from team to team bringing his energy and quickness. Perfect fit for chicago, they have no other shooters and Nate can distribute the ball. He is playing out of his mind the last few months... I just can't buy in after watching his entire uneventful career on every team in the NBA

If you don't think Nate Robinson would be a different player if he was in a different body then you are on Tracers level of basketball understanding.
I've been right about everything except the Denver series. Who knew Denver would brick every FT + Curry would go off for 50 points?

But instead he floppd on a shove even though it was definitely going to lead to an ejection either way. Lebron's a pussy. Remember when he was complaining about Kirk Hinrich fouling too hard? The dude is a fucking freight train going through the lane and Hinrich was trying to protect himself. I guess that's the kind of attitude you develop when ESPN decides your an all-star already when you're a junior in high school.

And Nate Robinson is an incredible player when he is hot like in game 1, but he's very streaky. He also takes a lot of dumb shots for example he went 1-7 from three and his lone 3-pointer was 6 feet outside line. It's exactly what the Bulls need to win 3 more against the Heat.

It has been a really exciting series and I'm looking forward to game 4.

I wouldn't exactly call Lebron a "pussy" but you gotta man up in situations like that and take a swing. He literally got shoved to the ground and just stood there like it don't even matter. I wonder if a James jones type will be sent in to put a hit on Nazr next game.. because Lebron is "too valuable to his team" (NOT, Heat are still the best team without him)

More like JR Smith. Reigning 6th man of the year & he has been trash these past several games. I like what Shaq & Kenny had to say about him last night. He's always had that all-star talent but has been known to be immature & lack focus. If he wants to prove to himself & everybody else he's ready for the spotlight, nows the time.

JR has all the athletic ability, yet he settles for contested jumpers.. It's like yeah you're wide open but only because he's one of the best dunkers in NBA history.

Immaturity on the Knicks is hard to watch, it's not just JR.. they complain on every call and don't act like professionals.  Chucking teams don't work in playoff basketball. Mike Brown is the coach of the year IMO for putting up with their bullshit

That okc game was infuriating to watch. Not enough offensive rebounding and uncharacteristically bad ball handling. KD was trying to do too much and scott brooks shouldve reeled him in a little bit and got them playing faster earlier, or at least use Durant to draw defenders better. That series was winnable, they werent losing by huge margins either but the panic in their systems really got to them. The knicks series will probably end the same way this one did.

Yeah why the hell are some people acting like the Grizzlies are done once they meet the Spurs? Paker and Manu are going to have to deal with Conley and Tony Allen guarding them. Not to mention they also have the defensive player of the year in Marc Gasol down low. Golden State can be scrappy defensively, but Memphis is much more rugged and on another level. It is going to be a damn good series.

Would've rather SA played OKC w/o Westbrook but whatevs.  Memphis vs. SA is a solid Western Conference Finals....it'll be a physical series, but I think the Spurs have more experience, better coaching, and shoot the 3 ball way better than Memphis, giving them the edge.

Time for Melo to prove he's not a loser

IF Indiana wins tonight im setting my Melo jersey on fire

More like JR Smith. Reigning 6th man of the year & he has been trash these past several games. I like what Shaq & Kenny had to say about him last night. He's always had that all-star talent but has been known to be immature & lack focus. If he wants to prove to himself & everybody else he's ready for the spotlight, nows the time. Ive always been a fan so I hope he goes for like 30 off the bench tonight, and plays well enough to push this series to a game 7.
JR has all the athletic ability, yet he settles for contested jumpers.. It's like yeah you're wide open but only because he's one of the best dunkers in NBA history.

Immaturity on the Knicks is hard to watch, it's not just JR.. they complain on every call and don't act like professionals.� Chucking teams don't work in playoff basketball. Mike Brown is the coach of the year IMO for putting up with their bullshit

Current news, Miami is taking care of business. NOONE CAN BEAT THIS TEAM


I'd be much more into watching the Heat and respect them if they had to go through the western conference. I think they match up well against OKC, but teams that can score in the post and have a deep roster can take the Heat. Lucky for them they dont even have to try until the finals because of how much of a joke the eastern conference is. They can afford to not really have a healthy Wade, and last year they did the same with Bosh. In a western conference series that shit wont work. Every game is critical.

and by the way that is mike woodson coaching the knicks. not brown.

Yeah if you're a spurs fan you would want to see them play OKC without Westbrook. But as a fan of the NBA in general, why would you ever want that matchup? Its a given the spurs would win. OKC isnt going to beat teams past the 2nd round without Westbrook. 

As far as coaching goes, Pop is easily the best coach in the league. but Hollins one hell of a coach too.

I don't know why everyone is so dismissive about the Grizzlies. They can potentially beat the Spurs, and I will take it a step farther than that. If they play Miami in the Finals...It is a toss up and the only reason I lean towards Miami is because they were there last year. Other than that, I would have sided with the Grizz. Their strengths are exactly what Miami would not want to go against. We are not talking about one dominant figure down low but 2, in Z-Bo and Gasol. That would be a great series.

Despite the superstars I do think Spoelstra is a pretty good coach. There's always gonna be a ton of pressure coaching a squad like that but I think he's handled it well as well as managing the ego's of the players & things like that. He cant be too incompetent if Pat Riley's backing him, ya know?

you formed that sentence right after calling someone else and idiot..

are you kidding me? yeah what is so great about Spoelstra?Lebron James made Mike Brown look like a good coach.  You could take Wade and Bosh off that team and still get through the eastern conference with ease. He got worked by Rick Carlisle in the 2011 finals. That is why I'd be more intrigued to watch the Heat take on a team other than OKC because the Thunder's style of play is a good matchup for the Heat. the Spurs or Grizzlies would create a series where Spoelstra would have to make adjustments.

 Hollins adapted to having his top scorer and all star caliber player traded mid season. He's got that team motivated and playing his style of rugged defensive minded basketball.

No need to keep talking about the Knicks and Pacers series. Its not like the Knicks are going anywhere nor is it a good product of basketball.

I agree, I think he is a decent coach, but I'm just saying you give him the Grizzlies, Pacers, Nuggets, or Spurs and Spoelstra wouldnt be taking those teams to great records. Maybe he could, I don't know. Im going off what I see and I dont see him as a great strategic coach. Riley has forgotten more about basketball than I'll ever know so who am I to say this? If the Heat win it all this season then I'll give him more credit because he will have beaten good teams strategically  rather than his superstars out dueling the Thunder's superstars. If they lose then we will see how he deals with the immense pressure

Until Memphis bounces back with a win, any pro-Spurs shit talking and/or uninformed team-hyping is all good.

Well currently i think spolstra is great because hes sticking to a style and its working. hes built his offense and defense around analytics and size mismatches that weigh just as much on guys like battier as it does on lebron. Obviously lebron is good and it lends a certain flexibility to his current style that may not exist on other teams but on the other hand, lebron isnt the only guy on the team playing defense. its especially noticeable when theyre against good teams because a lot of times other teams wont adjust to it because they think its bullshit. I think the style caught a lot of people off guard.

Small ball and mismatch has existed forever but most of the time teams dont build their whole strategy around using it and i think that the heat winning the finals against a pretty dominant thunder team  really got people to look at the way he was doing things.

Also spoelstras big on analytics. other coaches are too and its also been around forever but hes reaaally into it. He builds data sets for other teams and he finds ways to use it to suggest adjustments to players and when he rotates guys on/off the court, and how to maximize a players potential. You can totally make the argument that lebron kinda fuddles how much of an effect this stuff has had and then the general incompetence of the eastern conference but im willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Contrast that with popovich who isnt into computer analytics and sticks mostly to fundamentals/using his system. Hes a magician for seeing things others dont but thats not really that accessible to other coaches, what spoelstras is doing is something anybody can do which makes his style more game changing.

All of this kinda makes this years potential finals really interesting if it ends up being spurs-heat. Its either a huge referendum on what spoelstra's doing or the ultimate vindication. The old master vs the new kid on the block. Ok, so maybe hes not the ~best~ coach but hes certainly one of the most interesting ones in the league in the last decade. anyways thats just my opinion.

Memphis played one and a half good quarters, maybe, last night, let alone this entire series, I can only imagine what could if they can do it for an entire game. Defensively this team is a shell of what they should be. Pick n roll/Pick n Pop could not be stopped. Nobody seemed to rotate nor close out as threes were raining last night from San Antonio. Mike coloney is getting out played by Parker and can't seem to stay in front him. Offensivley they haven't been getting good looks down low and the reason seems to be Tiago splitter. He's not giving up an inch of space to Gasol and likewise with Duncan on Randolph. The lack of athleticism in the post seems to hurt Memphis; they have been able to guard Randolph with Leonard/Duncan/splitter almost never giving up a mismatch. The Parker/green/Leonard/splitter/Duncan line up might be the most efficient defensive line up this post season. When not able to get down low the guard play from Memphis is horrendous at worst and sketchy at best. You aren't going to win this series running mike coloney and tony Allen iso. The bench stepped it up some but they still need some more fire power. The only chink in the spurs armor seems to be matt bonner's defense or lack thereof. That 13-2 run in the end of the 4q happened because pop decided to play bonner instead of splitter (I don't quite remember if Tiago was in foul trouble or not). Going back to the grindhouse Memphis is going to recover from this defensive amnesia if they want to avoid being made fools of by this near perfect spurs team.

Just shit on their hopes and dreams? Crushing way to lose a game, but the Pacers almost took them out game 1 on their home floor.. If there is a team that won't be shaken up from this loss, its the pacers. Miami is going to be in for one hell of a fight.

What the fuck was Vogel thinking at the end of the game?

"Hey, we lost but at least Hibbert didn't foul out!"


Conservative tactics don't win games in the playoffs.

The Pacers got lucky and had chances to win but squandered them and James took advantage and made that shit look easy.

^that call was anything but conservative. Miami had four shooters on the floor with birdman as a non factor. Vogel didn't want to put hibbert out there to get matched up with bosh in a situation where hibbert ends up helping, leaving bosh to hit an open 18 footer. By all means it was a poor decision you can live with bosh taking that shot to beat you but having lebron get to the rim when defensive 3 seconds is a non issue and you can easily run zone. Poor decision most definitely but conservative I'm rolling my eyes at that one.

How was it not conservative?

He was trying to protect Hibbert from getting another foul so that he could be on the floor in the case of a potential offensive possession at the end of the game.

That's being conservative

You put your best defender on the floor in that situation no matter what.

+You really thought LeBron wasn't going to take the last shot? hahaha Nobody was worried about Bosh!

Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: bentmode on May 23, 2013, 05:54:28 PM
A conservative defense has a big man protecting the rim despite match up issues. Benching hibb had nothing to do with being in foul trouble and everything to do with who was on the floor. You don't think bosh can make mid range jumpers? Don't be a toy he's made a living off the worst shot in basketball. Go back and watch the play again and try to dissect it in an intellegent matter. You might find that Paul George takes his eyes off lebron for one second to see what ray allen is up to in the corner.

+the definition of conservative:

1. Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.
2. Traditional or restrained in style: a conservative dark suit.
3. Moderate; cautious: a conservative estimate.

Not having a rim protector is the opposite of moderate and cautious when you are up 1 point with 2.2 seconds left.

+there was no way in hell you were going to get an extra possession without fouling anyways and in that situation you think you are going to get a foul on someone hope they make one or less, inbound the ball with a second or less and then get the ball down to hib on the block? Don't think so.

Why the fuck would they be saving Hibbert for the next offensive possession when they were 1 point ahead with only 2.2 on the clock? Even if Miami scored on a quick catch and shoot there probably wouldn't have been enough time for Hibbert to do shit on the other end.

Im no basketball super mind . I got lucky that when I moved to the US I moved to SA . So thats why Im a Spurs fan

In the start vs the warriors the main problem I thought was that the spurs on defence wasnt really working the defence , warriors dudes could go in , pick up their rebounds and then start over and shoot again .  Spurs usualy do good defence , they stick to their dudes and pick up rebounds . This is key to winning games as you could see against the lakers and now memphis  .

Its deff not something only I know or takes a genius to see . But if we are talking about basketball its a fair point for me to bring up , we cant just sit here in this thread and post scores , I thought we were talking about things that happen in the game

Heat might be in trouble now . both games were close and now its 2 away games for them , I really disslike the heat and bird man , so wouldnt be too bad for the Spurs if the heat got smoked

Anyway, with the Spurs as the last "old" team standing id like to see them win it all this year.

As much as im loving the pacers popping the heats cherry, i really want to see spurs-heat. Game 3 heat was the same as game 3(?) knicks, the pacers just crumbled. It almost doesnt count.game 4 they were completely unphased. This could easily be 3-1 pacers lead. Why arent they putting norris cole on the court? The dude literally runs around like a squirrel and feeds the ball to the right guys at the right moments, draws defenders. and is overall a very annoying player to keep up with. I think a guy like him really has something to offer when youre playing a game against a team that has to keep big guys on court and cant really go small. He ups the tempo.

Does anyone else think Dwade is a washed up punk at this point in his career? Breaking Kobes nose in the all star game, kicking that one guy in the nuts, the elbow he threw at David West... I think that if he wasnt a former finals mvp he'd be getting a lot of shit for being a dirty player. Whats worse is that he isnt even that good anymore. Fucking chalmers has been playing better than he has. The only way the heat get past the pacers is if lebron puts up two monster games because the rest of the heat are being outplayed by the pacers.

PS Fuck the heat but I could not believe lebron's 6th foul or D wades travel call in game 4
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: Will Easley on May 29, 2013, 09:22:16 PM
I'm kinda indifferent about the lebron call but wades travel was super obvious. He ran like he was about to pull up for the 3, hesitated for second then changed his mind & tried to put the ball back on the floor to make another pass. I actually laughed when I saw it. I wouldn't say he's washed up just yet because he always has the potential to make plays but he's definitely on the downside of his career as his body starts to slow down. He gets a lil carried away on the court sometimes but I think personally he's a decent guy. You see him take that one Miami heat fangirl to prom? Granted she was actually pretty hot but still that's pretty cool to do ona celebrity level, although at the same time kinda iffy to do during the playoffs.

What I wanna know is what he's been doing with that knee of his. Funny how hell leave the game to retape it then all of the sudden comes out guns blazing. When Craig Saeger asked how does it help him all he could say was "it does a lot of things". I mean really you would think a professional athlete would have a more concrete answer to such a simple question. Like "it just gives me peace of mind" or " it helps to retape it after the first wrap gets a little loose" or some shit like that. I dunno that shit just seems kinda weird to me.

He's probably getting some weird shit done to it in the locker room during those little time outs. Sports medicine is crazy as hell nowadays.

Wade definitely looked bad for stretches in game 4 though, so I don't think the Heat can afford many more injuries against the Pacers. The big three were all kind of bad actually, and the three point shooting is still not there. It's kind of funny considering the talk about how crucial three pointers are to 'modern' NBA offense that the Knicks and Golden State are out of the playoffs, and the favourited teams in each of the conference finals have shot a pretty poor 3 point % in their series' so far (or are the Grizzlies/Pacers). Entirely meaningless, but funny.

No Birdman Pacers will have a huge rebounding advantage. PG has to realize his true role tonight and dominate the ball. I like that he makes and effort to get his teamates touches but he's thier best offensive option put Stepenson/West on LB more and let PG go to work.

Tonight's game should be a wild one hope Pacers get the W.

Good for Hibbert calling out the media that they don't watch Indiana games. Pacers don't even exist and get no coverage on TV. They are small market but I'm sure Stern will be so bummed if the Pacers make it.

I'm fully backing the Pacers.

The Heat's defense is giving Roy Hibbert blue balls, no homo. All those first half turnovers might well come back to bite Indiana in the ass later on too. As much as they need the ball in Paul George's hands at certain times his decision making with the ball isn't great.

That Bosh and Wade shooting spree at the beginning was weird. As mediocre as Bosh has been I think his stinky mid range jumpers may be a better option than sending Wade to the rim only to run into a brick wall when Hibbert's on the floor.

Indiana didnt really "do their thing". Outside of the turnovers, it seemed like hibbert was out of it and foul trouble kept him and george from taking more risks/shots/nastier picks. They shouldve taken green out or not played him at all, he gave up some important points and any possible momentum probably. Indiana definitely wasnt in the right headspace.

I wanna say spurs in 6 only because i think pops probably has an effective way to deal with miami fronting the post and dealing with lebron in the low post and closing lanes and keeping ray allen out of the game, but i feel like an effective small game could get parker in foul trouble and fuck with the spurs? Especially since the heat has such a good transition offense so maybe heat in 6? Especially if the refs call a bunch of bullshit flops.

I can't predict the future but I have been watching NBA basketball  for 20 years and if there's anything I do know it's that in the playoffs defense, coaching/strategy depth, and shooting are what wins championships and Spurs have the advantage on all of those categories.


I would love to say Spurs will sweep but that's not going to happen. I think Miami will win game 1 off of ECF trophy momentum and San Antonio will come out a bit rusty. Spurs will make the adjustments and dominate the rest of the series.

truth be told I wouldnt even be surprised with the way the whole heat team has been flopping. Granted Manu does enough of that on his own, but Lebron & Dwade will always get more superstar calls made for them. Spurs just gotta make sure the score isnt too tight at the end of the 4th because I really wouldnt put it beyond Stern to favor the Heat in this series for "basketball reasons". Joey Crawford to rescue!

George Karl & the Nuggets part ways. I'd like to see him go to the Clippers as well as Brian Shaw going to Brooklyn. I think GK would be that coach that commands respect from the Clippers, better develop Blake & DeAndre, and would get along perfectly with CP3. Shaw could also get a chance to sorta develop his own culture in Brooklyn which would be cool to see from Phil Jackson's protege.

Game one tonight!! Miami is favoured by 5 points at home. I know LBJ has 25 pounds and 3 inches on Kawhi but I think KL is a better defender than Paul George interested to see how San Antonio plays Lebron will they double and leave open shooters or go with single coverage? let the chess match begin. GO SPURS GO!!

^Face up, sure, kawhi can guard lebron; well whatever you consider guarding the player on the planet, but in the post kawhi is gunna get bodied.

And to the guy who talked about the spurs fronting in the post, the spurs front everyone in the post. It's a great defensive trap when your oppenent doesn't have shooters which Miami has plenty of.

We never got to see these teams really play eachother in the regular season at full line up strength on both sides so its really hard to figure which way it goes.

Miami in 7 is the gut pick. Kinda of hard to to go against the best player of the floor theory. For me what it comes down to is tp's game versus lbj's.

Degenerate gambler pick for game 1: spurs +5

Wow what a good game. The best moments for me were Tony Parker's ridiculous buzzer beater and watching Tim Duncan score, reject a shot and draw a foul all on Birdman within the space of about a minute during the second quarter. Danny Green almost fucked it all up with that foul on Ray Allen's three-point attempt but Miami were so wasteful in the 4th quarter. Couple of bad late-game passes by Lebron a la game 2 of the Heat vs. Pacers series.

Since everyone's giving out their uninformed predictions, I'll say Spurs in 6, with Parker winning Finals MVP. Also we will probably see Mario Chalmers cry from Lebron and Wade's bullying at some point.

I do. Lebron took four shots in the 4th coming in at the nine minute mark. He hit two of them. Both of those were driving lay ups. Of the two misses one was a 26 footer (a 3 obv) the other was from 11 feet out. James got to the charity stripe once and hit two of two. baskteball junkies can admit the weakest pary of lebrons game is from here. Lebron also grabbed 7 boards: 2 offensive. In the nine minutes he played in the 4th he also dropped a dime. So quick recap 2-4 from the floor, 2-2 on the line, 7 rebounds and and an assist in nine minutes. Not exactly a choke job. If you want to say lebron did one thing poorly it was not playing selfishly. There were too many times when bron had good look and gave it up for what he perceived to be a better shot and his team mates didn't come through. In that fourth quarter it was bosh and wade who choked.

I'm not a lebron apologist but I can recognize game.

if he was having such success getting into the paint in the 4th, duncans (sidenote: best pf in the league also) in foul trouble, his teammates not hitting their shots/defense rotating onto them very well, then why did he only shoot 4 shots? lebron is a very smart player and kNOWS that he was making the wrong basketball plays. most likely a combination of lacking the clutch gene/wanting to stat pad his triple double. as to the ratios of which i can only speculate

This one was stellar too.  I wonder if he knew he could make it through the defender's legs or if it just synced up perfectly as he was passing.

Edit: Who ever takes 2 of the next 3 in SA wins this series! GO SPURS!!!!

Had a feeling Heat we're going to bring thier A game for game 2 and boy did they ever that new-ish pick and roll offense where Lebron sets the screen is also kinda scary.

All that said San Antonio still has not played to thier potential and the series is tied. I think Duncan Parker and Manu really take control as the series shifts to San Antonio, Kahwi is also due for a good game don't be suprised is Spurs return the favour Tuesday night.

Spurs just played sloppy EVERYTHING , like they were panniced or something , always super close on the shot clock , really bad rebounding , bad deffence , passing was horrible at times , almost throwing it to no one .

I was almost screaming into a pillow sometimes


Anyways , calm down , Spurs home court , some texas crowd and cheerleaders , good for moral and will be super good to hear some cheering when spurs makes some nice 3 pointers

Green is the fucking truth

Judging by his form throughout this season and the playoffs, I really don't think you can expect that much from Manu at this point. They definitely need more offensively from Timmy and Kahwi though, particularly if the Heat are gonna press up on Tony Parker like they did in game 2.

Splitter was an idiot for trying to dunk that shit. I mean, the game was on the verge of being over at that point and he was looking for a momentum-shifting play but he showed Lebron exactly what he was going to do the moment he picked up that pass. Splitter has good hands at the rim so I don't know why he didn't just try and lay it in and maybe draw the foul or something instead of getting reverse posterized while already down 18 like a chump.

Irritating defensive schemes were irritating. I guess they werent expecting the heat to close down passing lanes like that and it eventually got to them in the 3rd quarter. Spurs were playing kinda sloppy but they hung in there thanks to greene but thats not something you can depend on. get tim duncan more shots or start being more comfortable with using tony parker as a decoy because theyre not gonna be able to spread the heats defense out consistently.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13

Manu is all over the place , missing passes , dropping the ball , missing 2s , flaying all over the place

I mean hes usualy a really good 3 point shooter . he still has flashes of brilliance though .

If Lebron is truly great he will put on an amazing performance that should ultimately result in a win, especially since he's publicly stated he takes the blame for that loss. I want the Spurs to win the series but if I had to put money down on game 4 i say Miami takes it. Lebron (should) go for 30+ points and/or a triple double with some late game heroics if needed.

Dan gilbert also promised the cavs would win a championship in cleveland before the heat would (in comic sans no less) and look how far that went....

As a player though... coaching is a whole different animal. The Nets seem to be an unmotivated team (a la Joe Johnson), yet one of the biggest payrolls. It will certainly be interest to see how he handles that.

Him & Deron Williams are supposedly real cool and D-Will always looked up to him as a player so he has that going for him. Obviously it's gonna take a while for him to adjust to coaching, and he's gonna have alot of pressure on him in Brooklyn, but I've got faith in him. He's always been one of the smartest point guards and he has 19 years of NBA experience. If anything he has potential. Give em a few years (if he happens to last that long) and well see where he's at.

Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: weedpop on June 14, 2013, 02:04:30 PM
This Tony Parker injury is really gonna fuck the Spurs down the stretch I think even though it's supposed to be "not that serious". You could see how taking him out of the game early completely screwed up their offensive rhythm yesterday, and with the way Manu's playing they really have almost no ball-handling or consistent scoring threat to come off the bench and fill in Parker's minutes.

If two out of the Lebron, Wade and Bosh triumvirate can perform at a reasonably high level for the rest of the series I don't really think the spurs have a chance. Miami just have more firepower and more good offensive lineups to work with when the Spurs are only able to play their stars for like 30 mins each per game.

Post by: The Ghost of Lenny Kirk on June 15, 2013, 09:24:13 PM
My honest opinion is that the spurs are fucked. The passing is the root of their problem and maybe two games arent enough to fix it. Tony parker and manu dont have to play amazing games, if they can play average that would probably be enough, the real problem is how the spurs would rather make bad passes than try shooting. Thryre always running out of time on the shotclock and end up getting forced shots that are bad, or theyve inadvertnently funneled the ball to a bad area and get trapped.  I dont know what it is, be it floor pressure or just the bright lights of the finals but theyre just not making it happen. 20 point conversion off of 19 turnovers with 9 or 10 being unforced? Am i wrong? Please tell me. Their passing is their strength but also an exploitable weakness.

This series has been so back and forth everything I've said in this thread about each team's chances has been basically proven wrong by the time the next game is played. The Spurs obviously had an incredible offensive performance tonight (despite lots of turnovers) and I think a lot of that was down to Manu and Pop's use of him. Still, Miami put up 104, with Wade continuing to look good and Bosh actually playing like a half decent NBA center for stretches. I think this one is going to game 7.

Is anyone else psyched to see Ray Allen playing so well after his terrible playoffs last year? That stroke is looking as good as ever, no Hibbert.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: Lance on June 17, 2013, 08:12:40 AM
Solid game last night, Heat getting back to within 1 point and then SA just put it on em again, that shit has to be frustrating.  Great game...I expect it to go to 7, but would love the SPurs to close it out tomorrow night.  They are the best team in NBA history to close out a series in a game 6 on the road (14-2).  Miami will play with the intensity of not wanting to lose on there home court and take it to a game 7 but SA knows  this road way to well. 

It's going to come down to which team doesn't make more mistakes.  If Manu can play like he did in game 5 and SA can get a little bit from everyone else, its gonna be awesome to watch Lebron watch the Spurs celebrate there championship on Miami's floor
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: The Ghost of Lenny Kirk on June 17, 2013, 08:46:32 AM
Im also gonna go out on a limb and say spurs still had 19 turnovers with a 20 point conversion again, not all of those were on passes but it still kinda sucks especially if next game the heat get more physical with the spurs and slow down once they get the ball to get a higher conversion on the turnovers instead of trying to get sloppy fastbreak points. Theres also a good chance theyll start ray allen next game and try using him to set the tempo with layups instead of 3-pointers. i want the spurs to win but theres still 2 games and anything could happen. Definitely the best finals in a couple years.  Imagine if it was grizzles vs. pacers...

i feel bad for kawhi leonard. that missed free throw is going to haunt them if they lose this series.

yes and no. yes because it was a big free throw but he still bailed the spurs out of a few bad possessions. dudes gonna be real good.

Fuck the heat

Kahwi Leonard was great in the fourth quarter despite that missed free-throw. It's frustrating though because they did have so many opportunities to put this one away but ended up giving the Heat enough rope to drag themselves back in to the game. If any of those missed free throws had gone down, or any of those last couple of defensive rebounds had gone the Spurs' way this might have been over.

Heat didnt win the game so much as the spurs lost it, big fuckin difference, lebron kept blowing it when it mattered, if theres anything to be said about his "legacy" is that hes fucking overrated. Kawahi shouldnt beat himself up over that free throw, manu should for some heineous passing. Webber said it best, "better to shoot 2 for 10 than 2 for 5 with - bunch of turnovers."

I like watching both teams lose. I hate watching either team win. I hope it goes into infinite overtimes until a huge brawl breaks out, ejecting all players on both teams. At this point, im pretty sure they have to settle the series over a mud wrestling tournament between the cheerleaders. So based on the cheerleaders roster, im pretty sure that the miami heat will win.

He's had bad turnovers in the last few minutes of close games throughout these playoffs, actually. It kinda looks like he's having a lot harder time handling the pressure this year as compared to last. The dude actually looked like he was about to cry coming out of the huddle after that turnover, which is why I was so surprised to see him hit that three pointer on the second try after his putrid first attempt.

Anyway, here's hoping for a solid Spurs victory (and hopefully some more exceptional drama a la Game 6).

and did y'all notice how happy Poppovich was for them? dude was smilin as he group hugged Spoelstra and a few other coaches. he was handin out wet kisses to Wade and Lebron. such fuckin bullshit.

(another complaint: why did the Spurs just let the Heat shoot wide open three's all night? they barely defended them behind the stripe. for such a well disciplined team, i don't understand how they collapsed defensively and had such horrendous ball-handling.)

Amazing finals. Loved every second of it. cant wait for the next season. Kawhi green and neal are gonna become so much better, they totally grew up. green going toe to toe in fastbreak situations and winning. The next 3 in the making. parker, duncan and ginobli mustve been so tired from game 6. Shit happens, oh well, they still tha best.

Also, I think some of you guys misunderstand what im saying, i like the heat as a team but i just think lebron gets credit for lots of things he doesnt do. People make the heat all about lebron and i think thats shit. The heat could probably still make the finals without lebron but i dont think the reverse is true. Thats spoelstras defensive scheme out there, thats spoelstras version of small ball out there. Defense won that game so please give credit where its due. Its what kept the series from being a 4-1 spurs blowout victory, not lebron getting triple doubles.

wade isn't the same player he used to be. he can't even carry the heat when lebron goes to the bench. he can't even stay healthy.

bosh is a soft. S-O-F-T. wade and bosh alone will not get past the celtics of last year or the pacers this year.

lebron has the highest +/- in the league. the heat are not  a good team when lebron goes to the bench.

the heat without lebron are a 45-50 win team 2nd round team.

the reason the heat work is because of lebrons versatility to score, rebound, pass, and defend.

Right. The Miami Heat get to the finals without lebron James, arguably the only person in the league who can gaurd positions 1-5. And it was defense that wins the game correct? Humph. I see your point as valid, clearly my eyes decieve me and maybe I should get that LASIK surgery I've always wanted.

GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE WITH THAT.

A gipper size rant coming at y'all tomorrow about the legacy of lebron and something for the haters to think about, the casual fans specifically.

The spurs didn't have enough that's all it came down too. Ginobli had a bad ginobli game, Parker was a shell of himself, Timmy did everything he could barring having a heart attack on the court from giving every ounce of himself to the game, Tiago Neal  and Danny "I CAN'T DRIBBLE A BALL" Green disappeared. The offense looked stagnant and sloppy. Definsively they were giving up too much space to shooters, namely bron, even my girlfriend could plainly see that playing off lebron 8 feet was not working, and just getting plain out hustled. In a game 7 none of the previous 6 matters. It's win or go home. Put up or shut up. Miami did just that. Now I have to give credit where credit is due. Personally I thought kawhi was the best rookie of last season and he is clearly the most improved player. Hes going to be a guy I'm going to love to watch for years to come.


Final note: with 28 seconds left and only up by two in winning time, to create the distance by 2 possessions, lebron makes a 19 footer. That was when the game was over. That was the definition of clutch.

So when is this trade draft thingy coming up ? Spurs should have some money free , I wonder whats gonna go down or if they kinda wanna keep the same team going , its such a tight good team now . best team and heart in the NBA

Clippers to get Doc Rivers pending league-approval sometime this week. His son Austin Rivers (currently playing for the hornets Pelicans) tweeted "Let the West coast battles begin dad!" if yall were looking for some kind of confirmation.

Report: Clippers land Rivers as coach

Posted Jun 23, 2013 9:06 PM - Updated Jun 23, 2013 11:01 PM
BOSTON (AP) -- Doc Rivers will be the next coach of the Los Angeles Clippers if the NBA approves the rare but not unprecedented trade of an active coach, a Boston Celtics official told The Associated Press on Sunday night.

The deal would bring Boston a first-round draft pick in 2015, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because it is pending a trade call with the NBA office. Rivers, who had three years and $21 million left on his contract with the Celtics, must also reach an agreement on a new deal with the Clippers.
Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said the team had no announcement.
The tentative agreement on Sunday wraps up weeks of haggling over the deal and frees Rivers from presiding over the dismantling of the team that won the franchise's record 17th NBA title in 2008.
The Celtics and Clippers have also discussed sending Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles in a package with Rivers for draft choices, center DeAndre Jordan and point guard Eric Bledsoe. But NBA commissioner David Stern nixed those talks this week, saying teams aren't allowed to trade active players for a coach.
A deal for Garnett could still happen, but the teams would have to convince the league that it was a separate deal. The 37-year-old big man has a no-trade clause in the contract that will pay him 23.5 million over the next two years, but it is believed he would waive it to be reunited with Rivers on the West Coast. He has also discussed retiring.
Boston could also cut ties with Paul Pierce, the longest-tenured member of the team, who is due to earn $15.3 million next season; he could be bought out for $5 million. Pierce will be 36 by the 2013-14 opener and showed signs of slowing down this season, when he averaged the fewest minutes per game in his career.
Rivers took over the Celtics in 2004 in the midst of the longest title drought in franchise history and - with thanks to the "Big Three" of Garnett, Pierce and Ray Allen - guided them to the 2008 NBA title. They returned to the NBA Finals two years later, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games.
But the Celtics have regressed steadily since then, twice failing to get past the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference playoffs. This year they finished third in the Atlantic Division - they had won it five straight times - and lost to the New York Knicks in the first round.
That convinced many that it was time to rebuild - a process Rivers was reluctant to supervise. If the Celtics unload Garnett and Pierce, that would leave them with point guard Rajon Rondo as their only established star.
Rivers had the second-longest tenure of any NBA coach to San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, compiling a 416-305 record in Boston that was the third-most wins in franchise history behind Red Auerbach (795) and Tommy Heinsohn (427). He also spent four-plus seasons with the Orlando Magic and is 587-473 in all.
Trades for coaches have occurred about a half-dozen times in NBA history, most recently in 2007 when the Heat received compensation for allowing Stan Van Gundy to go to the Orlando Magic.
In 1983, the Chicago Bulls sent a second-round draft pick to Atlanta as compensation for coach Kevin Loughery. The Hawks used that pick to take Glenn "Doc" Rivers.

They've been talking about sending Rivers to LA for weeks, originally packaged with KG and a wink-wink Paul Pierce buyout deal. It can't happen because they aren't allowed to trade a coach with a player in a single deal. The league will probably block any attempt to trade KG after the fact because they'll see it as connected. They'll get Doc, and as a Celtics fan, I'm stoked for him. He did a lot for the C's and I hope he does well out in LA.

Hopefully we can rebuild and have some sort of a team going by 2015.

as a life long spurs fan, this was probably pretty much it on their legendary run. ginobili is done, even if he doesn't retire, the dude is straight washed-up. they'll be good next year, shit they might make another run. they'll be contenders until duncan retires, and definitely in the mix if they retain pop, parker, and leonard.

spurs alwasy draft well, but their picks, unlike leonard, are usually investments. parker took a minute to shine, and playrs like de colo and tiago have a lot of learning left. also, i'm pretty dummed on tiago right now.

This draft is pretty weak though...

 More so waiting for the off season trades to start. Ready for The Dwight episode to end. A part of me wants him to play here (the rockets) and the other doesn't. Maybe he can thrive under McHale. Maybe he can't. Fuck man if we could get the 08-10 Dwight. I sort of hope they pick up josh smith and maybe another piece in 2014. Id rather them let Thomas Robison play more minutes instead of piecing him off which ultimately is going to happen. I check the clutchfans forum religiously. It's funny how many dudes on there think the cp3/Dwight show is coming here.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13

I sincerely doubt that CP3 and Dwight will be playing together next year, but the idea does provide desperate fans with something to pontificate over until next year.

It kinda looks like this will be a pretty boring off-season. I'm looking forward to seeing what the Western conference looks like next season though with the Lakers and Mavs still rebuilding.

The Lin contract isn't as bad as it seems. He's more than worth the 5 million this year for marketing alone and doesn't have to play a minute however he could probably thrive in a system like d'antonis. The hard part is the 14-15 season when you have to pay him 15 but its an expiring contract which every team seems to look for at the trade deadline to make the numbers work.

If worst come to worst deal him Brooklyn. Prokorov is spending money like he wants to be the Russian Dr. Buss.

That's the third year option which basically killed the Knicks from matching. He has value none the less. What Morey does with him who knows. Detroit could also be a factor, be it Rodney Stuckey or draft picks. Maybe even both. They could use the lin marketing desperately.

Lin's marketing value is overrated. His jersey sales have dropped every month since he has joined Houston. Yao Ming was actually a great player, probably would have been one of the all time greats if it wasn't for injuries. Chinese people didn't go crazy for Yi Jianlian (who has the advantage of actually being Chinese, unlike Lin). You aren't just going to 'unload' Lin, you are going to get some trash back in return. That is all I'm saying.

Seriously. He had a lil buzz after all the New York shit but dude is not the asian superstar alot of people try to make him out to be. yeah he has some marketability, but James Harden's beard probably sells more merchandise than Lin does.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: whitemanjazz on June 25, 2013, 06:31:38 PM
I see more Lin jerseys around here than Harden. Most likely because they're cheaper, but still. And I only compared Yao's demograph of fans not skill.

Yi's case is totally different from Lin. Lin had this underdog story which made for easy marketing. They had a Jeremy Lin inspired ice cream flavor ffs.

This all comes from a trade I heard. Doesn't mean it can or can't happen. That's all I'm saying.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: Beer Keg Peg Leg on June 25, 2013, 07:20:50 PM
Yes, and having more skill makes you more marketable. If Lin was still putting up Linsanity numbers he would be more marketable than he is currently. It would also help him if he was Chinese, which he isn't. I don't care how many Lin jerseys you see, his popular appeal is declining.

He's still Chinese American which means he's going to have some of that market no matter if he was born there or not jesus christ. I'm not going to read some bull shit link about his decline, that goes without saying since he left NY. But to say he isn't at all is asinine.

Post by: Beer Keg Peg Leg on June 25, 2013, 08:02:15 PM

And yes, lets go by how many Lin jerseys you see rather than an empirical study conducted by a sports marketing company.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: whitemanjazz on June 25, 2013, 08:13:07 PM
What do his parents have to do with his overall marketability? And the jersey statement was an observation. Didn't base any argument on that. You're trying to condescend. The fact they wrote an article on the decline of his marketability I mean..

I still think he will be traded irregardless.
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: weedpop on June 25, 2013, 09:05:58 PM
I think Lin's value is mainly as a player now. His numbers for last season weren't actually that bad and he obviously has some room for improvement. There's no way he's going to recapture "Lin-sanity" levels of popularity unless he starts playing at that level again (very unlikely) and I think his appeal is pretty limited aside from the race angle. To be clear though, the Rockets didn't sign him to satisfy Chinese Americans in Houston, it was to appeal to actual Chinese people who live in China. Despite Houston's history with Yao I don't think he's going to continue to be worth his contract just on marketing value alone unless its on a highly visible, big-market team with lots of games on TV in Asia.

Ha no hard feelings sports is always debatable. I'm not a fan of the guy or anything, but can't deny the marketing approach.

That was kind of my whole point all along. I'm sure Morey wanted to recapture the over seas fan base that Yao helped establish. I wouldn't be shocked if they're watching more rockets games over there than actual houstonians on account of the black outs a good portion of the city is dealing with. Needless to say he's movable especially to teams like Detroit who have cap.

Not to step on toes here, but dude is not Chinese-American. He was born in America. He is American. His parents are nationals, but he doesn't hold citizenship anywhere else but the U.S.

And I can safely say I've never seen a Lin jersey since he left New York.

china was jokingly(butnotreallyjoking) trying to get him to drop his american citizeship to join the chinese national team and even the president of china is a fan of the nba. Basketball is getting huge in china and asian players are definitely gonna be more marketable as time goes on even if the skills arent completely there.

I hope dwight goes to huston, parsons/howard/harden sounds like a trio worth rooting for.

Clippers with doc rivers is gonna be an interesting team to watch next season. They might be the best team in staples.

Im still bummed the spurs lost. So close. I still think defense won that series more than lebron (88-90 before the free throws even with lebrons 37 vs. Spurs with a much lower shooting average than usual/not shooting well off the perimeter? cmon lets get real) but whatever. i was really looking forward to danny green being the finals mvp.  

Next year's gonna be sick. Any of you guys in a rec league or anything?

yeah even as a lakers fan it would make sense for Howard to go to houston. the offense fits him perfect & he has another young star beside him with harden. Mchale could definitely help his post game too. that being said he'd also be pretty lame for him to keep on with this Dwightmare drama. just pick a team & stay there! He wanted the "spotlight" in LA which he got in full effect but once that criticism comes along all of the sudden he aint about that life. I'd like to see him grow as a Laker & really start to live up to his potential there but shit man, make up your mind!

Clippers are no doubt the best team in LA as of right now. we'll have to see what roster moves the lakers pull off in the offseason, but Doc Rivers is probably my favorite coach & Ive always liked the clips roster so until the old-man Lakers can get some new blood the Clips definitely have them beat on paper.

It's not a violation. It would be if he was packaged with a player trade as part of the deal. Coaches can be traded for picks and cash. It's totally allowed.

Regardless Boston is in rebuild mode and Paul Pierce is probably the only guy nailed down to the franchise
He isn't nailed to it at all. In fact he's gone on record by saying if the Celtics are rebuilding, he wants out. It's been pretty well known that the C's are looking to trade him for rights to a first round pick.

Garnett was the one with the no trade clause and he seemed receptive to that Clippers trade when it was being floated a week or two ago. Pierce is making like $15.4 million next year and his production is declining quickly, so it seems most likely that the Celtics will just try and get rid of as many of their big contracts as possible then stock up on some youth in preparation for next year's free agency period.

The Lakers are in a sort of similar situation but a bit worse because they seem to be wedded to their current roster for at least another year. I don't know exactly what they're going to look like next year but I doubt they'll be any good. If the Rockets do end up getting Dwight I could see them getting the 4 or 5 seed next year; probably would be a pretty fun team to watch too.

man I love offseason trades & acquisitions, keeps things interesting when there's no basketball to watch. Celtics send Paul Pierce , Jason Terry & Garnet to Brooklyn for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, & multiple draft picks. Reports are saying that garnet will be waiving the current no-trade clause in his contract in order for the deal to work. wow!

http://www.nba.com/2013/news/06/27/celtics-trade-garnett-pierce-to-nets/index.html (http://www.nba.com/2013/news/06/27/celtics-trade-garnett-pierce-to-nets/index.html)




Despite Garnett & Pierce's age I think their starting 5 is so sick. Let JJ & PP stretch the floor with williams dishing the ball between them & Garnet + Lopez down low. This team is definitely lacking depth, & who knows how long Garnet & Pierce will last, but if JASON KIDD can get them all to play cohesively they should at least be pretty fun to watch during the regular season. They definitely need some more bench players tho or else they're gonna run down the 2 celtics during the grind of the regular season & be left stranded with benchwarmers outside of their big 3 w/ Johnson, Williams, & Lopez.

Yeah brooklyn definitely feels like a "hipster" team to me, but i dunno maybe thats why I kinda like em. Prokorhov just be buying players n shit lol. Depth, defense, & possibly coaching is gonna be their main concerns but like i said theyll definitely be interesting to watch throughout the season. They drafted a skilled athletic center in Mason Plumlee @ 7'1 too so hopefully he & Blatche can allow Garnett not to play heavy minutes. They definitely got potential ON PAPER.

slap fantasy league next season.

Should I start this back up? The only reason I didn't run it back was lack of participation and a soul crushing threepeat on the horizon.

Don't feel great about the nets trade. I'm going to have to see it before I buy any stock from Brooklyn. Feels like the cons outweigh the pros.

It appears Andrea Bargnani's days with the Toronto Raptors are over.

According to Howard Beck of the New York Times, the Raptors have come to terms on a trade that would send Bargnani to the New York Knicks in exchange for Marcus Camby, Steve Novak, a first round pick in 2016 and a future second round pick. The deal is reportedly done and awaiting league approval.

Bargnani has averaged 15.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game during his seven NBA seasons. His current contract will pay him $22.25 million over the next two years.



THANK FUCKING GOD, GREAT TRADE TORONTO!  ;D

I think the rockets and smith met today. I'm kind of 50/50 on him playing here. He's a defensive stud, but offensively he can make some boneheaded plays. Pair that up with Dwight (not to mention how bad both of them are at free throws) that could be mayhem.

The departure of joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford from ATL may be the reason Smith takes such idiotic shots. Possibly feeling he's the only scoring option, which lets face it he is.

man I love offseason trades & acquisitions, keeps things interesting when there's no basketball to watch. Celtics send Paul Pierce , Jason Terry & Garnet to Brooklyn for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, & multiple draft picks. Reports are saying that garnet will be waiving the current no-trade clause in his contract in order for the deal to work. wow!

http://www.nba.com/2013/news/06/27/celtics-trade-garnett-pierce-to-nets/index.html (http://www.nba.com/2013/news/06/27/celtics-trade-garnett-pierce-to-nets/index.html)




Despite Garnett & Pierce's age I think their starting 5 is so sick. Let JJ & PP stretch the floor with williams dishing the ball between them & Garnet + Lopez down low. This team is definitely lacking depth, & who knows how long Garnet & Pierce will last, but if JASON KIDD can get them all to play cohesively they should at least be pretty fun to watch during the regular season. They definitely need some more bench players tho or else they're gonna run down the 2 celtics during the grind of the regular season & be left stranded with benchwarmers outside of their big 3 w/ Johnson, Williams, & Lopez.

Being a New England native, I wish the best for the Celtics in their restructuring efforts. It should be interesting to see the fate of Rondo during this shake-up; it wouldn't surprise me if the brass deals him out or he requests to be traded somewhere else. But then again, they may try to build around him if he's willing to dash his hopes of a ring over the next several seasons.

It seems like they should have gotten more just for Bledsoe since he could probably be a future starter on any team that doesn't feature  Chris Paul. What other decent trading chips do they have aside from him?

Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: bentmode on July 02, 2013, 11:34:12 PM
Caron was/is a c+/b- talent and the clippers over payed. As you mentioned major health concerns over the issue. Everything adds up to dumping Caron from a basketball and business standpoint. Bledsoe on the other hand is an issue for me all though as I type this I'm starting to warm up to this new clipper roster. They need a legit 2 gaurd, but what team in this league doesn't, who can play off the ball and with only a handful shooting specialists reddick was a good find. However, when you have a talent that has that has the potential to be a blue chipper you shouldn't deal for anything less. Then again I'm a dishwasher and not a league GM.

Kmart deal is god awful. Words can of describe how foolish Minnesota is. Has Kahn written all over it and he doesn't even work for the minny professional basketball team anymore. Worst deal of the summer guaranteed.

Iggy passing on 14 mil is crazy.

Post by: L.S on July 03, 2013, 06:36:02 AM
Clippers are the real winners in that trade. Bledsoe hasn't really proven anything yet and what the Clips desperately need is perimeter shooting to spread the floor around Paul and Griffin/DJ (if he doesn't get traded).

i thought it was a good trade. Id assume moving butler cleared some cap space & Reddick should be an excellent backup/6th man for paul. Dudely is solid too & will be great if they can get another SF to start while bringing him off the bench. Im sure Doc knows what he's doing. glad the suns got butler & bledsoe tho. they're gonna be my new hometown team so I'm glad they went from pure trash to slightly less trash.

Me too. Between Houston, Dallas, & LA he could really end up anywhere. I have a feeling it might be Dallas just because Dwight's agent & Mark Cuban are close friends, and they might be tryna sell Dwight on signing with the Mavs & then snagging up Rondo somehow. Houston definitely does seem like a hand in glove fit tho given their system & coaching staff, so i couldnt blame him for wanting to go there either. However, I think if Dwight wants to prove to everyone he's "grown up" he'll stay with the Lakers...even if its just for that extra $30 million.

I think Houston is the best situation in the short term and long term (depending on what the Lakers would have done next year during free agency) but I truly think a man that cares that much about his image would want to be seen as a guy who changed teams 3 times in over a year. I still believe Houston is the most ideal landing spot in terms of purely basketball reasons.

LA might as well trade gasol for some draft picks, have kobe take most of season off (you know hes gonna try to play asap) and tank this year so they can get a decently high draft pick & rebuild from there. they only have nash locked in for the 14-15 season so they can prolly resign Kobe for a lower pricetag & pick up some big-name free agents with all that salary cap space.

I aint mad at howard for going to houston. it seems like the best fit for him, but even still now that hes FINALLY picked his long-term team, he better play his heart out to make up for all the bullshit hes been on the past few years

what do you think the odd are that lebron leaves the heat? assuming Bosh & Wade more or less play at the same pace they did this last season. you think he'd consider jumping ship again?
Title: Re: NBA 2012-13
Post by: bentmode on July 05, 2013, 09:21:16 PM
I think it's highly possible lebron leaves Miami. Its well known pat riley has sold his condo in miami and has a house in malibu awaiting his retirement. in the 14-15 season miami wont be able to afford the big 3 if they all decide opt in. d wade is getting older and is breaking down at a pretty consistant rate; also wade is consumed by the idea of parenthood I don't know how interested in basketball he really is anymore especially after winning three titles, maybe he feels his r?sum? is complete. The erosion of d wade is detrimental to miamis small ball scheme which is dependent on athleticism and outside shooting. Keeping all three, over time, ruins the system. Bosh has always been the X factor, being the fantasy gm that I am I dump wade and try to keep the bosh lebron tandem and put bosh at his natural position and build around that tandem. But if you're Miami do you try and make wade a lifer, a rarity in this day and age. These are the basketball reasons why I am leaning toward his departure.
   
His personal motivations are what confuse me. He's openly stated he wants to become a billionaire athlete. Los Angeles makes this a possibility. If not being in LA are we to believe that CP3 and Blake Griffin would be plastered all over American televison? However, I think that lebron feels some empathy over the dog an pony show that was "the decision" and wants to give back to the community that raised him and that is if and only if he and Dan Gilbert can break bread and squash beef. I think this a slim chance. If you read the comic sans fonted letter than you could see that Gilbert doesn't seem like the kind of guy who can let bygones be bygones. He seems to have a vandetta and that is drag lebrons name in the mud for the entirety of his career. All things considered signs point to sunny Southern California.

yeah that makes sense. It'd definitely be interesting to see.

Stranger things have happened tho. Seeing Kobe & Lebron on the same team would be nuts. that is, if kobe is still playing by then.

I thought Kobe could go on for a few more seasons the way he was playing this year before his achilles went. Wade, though less old decrepit, looked like he was on a one way downward slope. You can see that his body just isn't working as well anymore, and I think both he and Lebron know that the 7 championships they claimed are probably not gonna happen. If the Heat 'three-peat' (? Pat O'reilly) and Lebron jumps ship to another superteam in the summer,he could be well on his way to 6 rings.

Lebron leaving the heat is such a pipedream. I think miami would do everything they could to keep lebron and buy enough people to keep them competitive even if bosh continues to degrade and wade loses his knees. Therell be all sorts of hoopla over his free agency but he'll end up signing a 3 year agreement with the heat with an opt out clause if things go south. Theyre a really strong team in a weak conference, i think he likes automatically going to the conference finals every year which is something no other team can kindof semi-guarantee, plus hes ultra comfortable with everybody on the heat now.

Theres nothing dan gilbert or chris grant can do to bring lebron over. Cavs dont have a system in place, mike brown isnt better than spoelstra and the cavs dont have a deep roster or the money to make it worth it. Hes only making shout outs to ohio so people might hate him less. Its not working.

Lakers dont have a system in place anymore, im sure lebron would want to play with kobe but i doubt the reverse is true, they dont have a young team anymore and who really wants to spend a whole season, probably two, trying to figure out team chemistry and building with new players? I doubt lebron wants to do that. and even if they do the west is just so much stronger that theres no real guarantee that theyll even make it through the playoffs.

Anyways, go rockets, they were an awesome choice, thats gonna be a fun team to watch. Also, whoever said they should just drop the conference bullshit and make it a 16 team mixed bracket was spot on.

true, i ain't gonna announce my switch to bones swiss on national tv and bum out everyone in my hometown though

We you do it to raise millions for the boys & girls club? I always thought the whole decision thing was pretty lame however with all that money donated to charity I feel it's definitely done more good than bad. Lebron made himself look like a dick on national tv for the benefit of many lol

it's funny that you're just the type of sucker that 'it was for charity!' scheme was supposed to fool.

the show itself wasn't specifically for charity but it did raise like $2-3 Million for the Boys & Girls Club (where it was filmed). I aint even some super huge Lebron fan but you've definitely shown yourself to be a thirsty hater. its just as bad as being a fanboy really. Like I said, that shit was pretty lame & he definitely kooked himself with all that but at the end of the day it did more good than bad. in my opinion anyway. I take the lives affected by the boys & girls club more seriously than some athletes public reputation.

lebron would also be on his way to securing his legacy as the biggest ring chasing piece of shit ever as well. im doubtful he would head west though, that would be sacrificing his biggest advantage (playing in the piss weak east)

Cavs pick up andrew bynum ona 2 year deal with a team option in the 2nd. I think its a good gamble for them. Bynum obviously needs to mature and those knees are very questionable but for someone who averages 20 points & 11 rebounds, i think its worth the risk. the cavs been coming up low-key. Considering how much they lost with Lebron they've done a pretty good job recovering from all that

Kyrie Irving is gonna be the best point guard in the NBA soon, so Bynum coming back strong next year would be helpful for that team. I think you're pretty much settling for diminishing returns with him though in this stage of his career with what we know about his knees and attitude about being a professional basketball player.

Seems like a win win. There was a good article about this saying that even if bynum tanks and his knees are still too shitty to play well theyll get a good draft pick next year, they didnt have to give up any players, and they only spent 6 million and wont have to pay the full 24 or even the 12 million for this season and they can drop him quickly. Cavs did a good job, hopefully all their cumulative experiences add up to something. they definitely have a shot at the 7th or 8th seed.

It's kind of a win-win for Cleveland. They really have nothing to lose. He's only 25, barring his knees don't Oden on him. there's a clause in the contract that if he doesn't preform, Gilbert only has to pay 6 mill of the agreed deal (EDIT: heard this on the radio....I guess the 6 mill is guaranteed and the rest is performance incentives). Not exactly sure of that's the correct number though.

PG- Westbrook
SG- Ryan Anderson
SF- King James
PF- Lamarcus Aldridge
C- Duncan

Westbrook was a iron man playing over 300 straight games prior to last year's playoffs. I expect a fierce season from Russ
RA best shooter in the league, period.. And now AD in his sophomore year will space the floor even better than last season.. no brainer
Lebron IS the Miami heat, he will dominate on all ends of the floor, and lead Miami to a 3rd str8 title
LA was a tough choice, but him and Lillard hooking up for a 2nd season will be a lot of fun to watch, very consistent 25 10 guy
Duncan is older now, slower, but still a goddamn beast under the hoop. He will guard the rim and score gimmies all year, SA is that good that a 40 year old man can dominate you..

I like your ballot for first team all NBA next year but let me help you a bit. Russel Westbrook just had knee surgery, okc would be smart  to d rose him.

Ryan Anderson is a forward. Stretch 4 actually.

Barring injury lebron is the best player in the game.

I would put Timmy at power foward since its his natural position, not to take away from LA, but the league is pretty deep at 4.

If Dwight remains to be a shell of himself I got Pekovic at best 5.

Antwuan Jamison to the clippers if anyones still following free agency moves. man this upcoming season is about to be GREAT. so many storylines to watch all around the league.

also bentmode I think Westbrook will be good to go. A meniscus tear isn't nearly as serious as an ACL injury so he should be back to his regular self a few weeks into the season, if not opening night. i've had partial tears in both of my meniscuses and skated on them before they fully recovered weeks afterwards. Not exactly the same thing, but its definitely not too bad of an injury. hell bounce back just fine.

I think Dwights gonna come back with a vengence too. I was never a fan of his childish ass indecisiveness, but hell be looking to prove himself in houston and he has a better fitting supporting cast around him. he should be as good as if not better than he was during his best days in orlando

I have no idea how fantasy sports work, just assumed you take 1 of every position and deal with trades as the season progresses. The King can play all positions, guard Centers so he has no position really.

I'm pretty big on josh smith, but he's a sf trapped in a pf's body. He's always taken horrid long range jumpshots and 3s. He certainly has gotten better about taking less of those shots. Guy definetly puts up great numbers though.

Why was Spo, a very good defensive coach, matching Chris Bosh and Birdman up against the opposing teams C instead of Bron? Lebron is a very versatile defender but he frankly cannot guard Centres. He may  do well for 1-2 posssesions by fronting the post but he cannot guard centres for more than that. he is still a very versatile defender and a great help defender  there is not a single year he has deserved DPOY and I seriously doubt there ever will be, his man defense leaves so much to be desired. stop watchign ESPN and start watching some actual basketball games.

Quote
    Last season, the NBA tried to discourage flopping by fining players. As Commissioner David Stern acknowledged, it didn't work. Therefore, I would propose another approach to stop the flop. The rule should be changed so any time that a defensive player falls flat on his back immediately upon contact from an offensive player, the officials will not call any foul.

    This rule will eliminate any motivation for the defensive player to deliberately fall down when contact is made.

    Those opposed to my proposal will suggest that this is not fair to the defensive player who can't stop himself from falling on his back after being run over by (say) LeBron James.

    My answer is that the defensive player will make every effort to keep his balance so that a foul will be called. And if he staggers before falling, the official will be allowed to call the foul. The offensive player will be afraid to run over the defensive player because the offensive player will be called for a foul so long as the defensive player holds his balance for a split second before falling (or doesn't fall flat on his back).

Don't see it happening. I think it's just their first instinct to try to draw the foul. Or like an offensive player shooting a 3 then trying to draw contact. Same as NFL I suppose with concussions they're inevitable.

Lebron is first team nba all defense, his entire career. He protects the rim with the best of em. If you are too thick to understand he's the best player in the game on both sides we can't have a real conversation about the NBA. Noah? He's a beast but mostly a rebounder and shit disturber.. Noah doesn't guard the rim like lebron, can't play 48 minutes like lebron, he's slower than lebron, and he can't jump like lebron. If fouling out wasn't an issue Lebron would be be the undisputed best defender of all time, he's #2 on the DPOY yet he's still so valuable on offense, it's like he gives a half effort on D and this is what you get

Chasing down somebody on a fast break does not count as protecting the rim. Sure lebron makes everyone look foolish in the restricted area every so often but it's not something you can count on. Real rim protectors can anchor a defense for at least 30 minutes a game. Lebron is more of a wing defender. He can gaurd hybrid forwards and that's about max. International ball is another subject.

Kyrie might have a really good year this time around. Some people were saying that because the cavs were trying to tank they would extend kyries injury times beyond what they were suppose to be so there's the off chance he's not as fragile as he's made out to be.

In which case how much money do you think the lakers might throw at him once his contract is up? Meta was singing his praises and I've seen some YouTube clips of Kyrie and Kobe together. Lakers are gonna be very desperate this year. For once in their lives they're the underdogs.

Either way this season is going to be really fun to watch.

HOW ABOUT THE FACT THAT 2014 IS A TEAM OPTION AND HES STILL A RESTRICTED FREE AGENT AFTER THAT...god i hate you

Yeah exactly, so if he doesn't sign the team option that would probably start the rumor mill in this offseason. It's a 20 million gap the but it's LA and its a big market team. If the cavs suck how does this not at least make some sense?

Post by: The Ghost of Lenny Kirk on September 08, 2013, 04:43:24 AM
Edit: alright I'm mixing this all up.

1.) they're going to use their team option and extend kyries contract

2.) Kyrie then either accepts the qualifying offer which extends his contract one more year and makes him a full on unrestricted FA the year after or he doesn't and he enters restricted FA the next year and finds some weird way of making the trade work because the lakers are loaded and hates tanking and wants to play with a competitive team.

3.) he leaves the cavs and finally joins the lakers.

4.) this is just a rumor and it doesn't actually happen because no ones ever rejected a team offer out of RFA but that doesn't make it any less fun to play devils advocate.

Yeah in this day and age an ACL tear isn't a death sentence like it once was.  The big thing through the first two preseason games is the fact that you can clearly see Derrick has his explosiveness/quickness back and like you were saying there isn't any hesitation.  I can't wait until we see our first Rose & Butler fastbreak/alley oop.

Everyone gets a salary cap of $200 and takes turns picking players for people to bid on. The player with the highest bid takes the player and this continues until rosters are full. It's chess compared to checkers. You have to be tactical about how you spend your money. It takes a bit longer but you could also have you roster constructed quickly.

It's finally here.. My heart was racing since I woke up this morning.

Oladipo was welcomed like a boss, Nicholson was on fire in the 1st half, lotta fun to watch. After 1H switched to the Bulls game, and noticed how offensively retarded they STILL are.. even with Rose back.. Boozer, Noah, Deng will never challenge Miami for a title. Miami played small and destroyed Chicago. It's comical that people think Chicago can compete for a championship.

Saw 2H of the Lakers game, and don't believe the smokescreen. LA's bench is terrible and this will not continue throughout the season. LAC are now the team to watch in Cali.

Huge slate of games tonight.. Can't wait to see Detroit, Milwaukee, and Dallas with their new aquisitions. My girl is going to kill me but League Pass is only FREE for so long. Get on it!

Nothing, but nothing, in the vast repertoire of sports cliches will ever make me laugh as hard as this one.
The best thing for the Cavs would just be to lock Kyrie Irving in the broom closet of their training facility for the next six months and pray for Wiggins. Maybe an all star point guard, a future superstar small forward and 3/4 of an Andrew Bynum will be enough to tempt Lebron back to Cleveland for his twilight years (doubt it though).

I don't know about solid, Cleveland is a WEIRD team straight up. They look so discombobulated out there like there's no system. Cleveland has players but who is going to shoot the 3? San Antonio has the idyllic system where every starter can shoot the ball and though Cleveland has improved, I don't trust 4/5 starters with the ball in late game situations.

i was watching the Lakers/Rockets game and the Lakers were on fire the first half (they had a 19 point lead at one point/made 11 threes).  the Rockets were able to sneakily come back in the second half by going to the line over and over and over.  they even took a 6 point lead toward the end of the 4th quarter. i seriously have never seen so many calls go to a team before.  almost every drive Harden attempted, he'd get fouls called his way. most of the time the defenders were barely making any contact and he'd get the whistle.  not only does Harden initiate the contact and get his way with the refs, he pulls that eurostep traveling bullshit and rarely gets called for it.

just look at the numbers:

LAL 11-15 FTs

HOU 33-52 FTs

no matter how much the refs helped the Rockets, the Lakers tried that hack-a-Dwight trick and it worked.  D12 was bricking free-throw after free-throw toward the last few minutes.  Jodie Meeks made a three and got the Lakers within two with under two minutes left. the Lakers were still down by 2, were inbounding the ball with 10 seconds left and had it deflected out of bounds.  they inbounded again with 3.4 seconds left and then this happened

Steve Blake Sinks the Game-Winner in Houston (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDbgNF8cWQg#)

right in bitch-ass Dwight's face.

this win was priceless (especially since the refs tried so hard to give it to the Rockets and the Lakers were without Kobe).  D'Antoni is a clown, but i like that the Lakers are playing more team-ball (6 players scored 10 points or more this game).

Good source tells me #Bulls fear it's a torn right ACL for Derrick Rose. If so, unlikely he will ever be the same.
(take that with a grain of salt local sources in Chicago thought Rose's first knee injury was a sprain, and that LeBron was going to choose the Bulls in free agency)

yeah I had a feeling it was his meniscus. I had moderate tears in both my knees before so I'd imagine with proper rehab he should be back in a couple months, depending on how severe his is. Hate to see him go down again tho. Hopefully this pushes Chicago to make some kind of move for another go-to scorer which they desperately need right now. As big as a Bulls fan I am I know there's no way they can make it out of the east with just rose. They've got a good supporting cast but as a team their offense is just not up there with all the other title contenders. anyways, here's to hoping D-Rose gets back to MVP form by the end of the season

If he comes back and that's a huge if do you really think they would want to compete? This Chicago team is championship or bust. Sawing what you had last year it's clear that cannot contend with their leading scorer out. What's the point of trading for a Jamal Crawford when you have to deal with the pacers and heat in your conference. Time to start tanking.

I'm almost certain it's the lakers. They'll have enough cap space, melo & Kobe are great friends, and you know LaLa wants to live right there in that Hollywood scene. He'll probably tease all sorts of teams during free agency but ultimately I can't imagine him anywhere else
Title: Re: NBA Thread
Post by: AsianVegan on December 01, 2013, 01:51:59 AM
I think/hope the Lakers are gonna avoid big moves this offseason, sign some good role players like have done, maybe even get a lower lottery pick this draft and make a play for Love/Westbrook/Irving in the future when Kobe's got a year left on his extension. Melo's 30 so it would be a more expensive max than one of those younger guys and I'm not sold on him as a #1 option.
I think the darkhorse could be Dallas who've been gagging to land a big free agent since forever. Dirk will resign for cheap, Monta Ellis is on a good contract, they've got a good coach/ownership/management and they might even have room for another max guy after Melo. Although the wifey could be an issue if Odom is anything to go by....

Dantoni fucked up by not bringing back Henry in the 4th.

Thus making the Knicks the most unlikeable team in history. Stoudemire, Bargnani, MWP, JR Smith, MELO LOL

Apparently Felton would be going to Toronto and MWP could be included as a salary dump, much like Salmons was in the Gay trade.

I remember Adidas talking last year about trying to introduce those jerseys. I hope the public outcry was enough to change their minds. I remember at one point the announcer said that the terrible games might be partly the jerseys' fault since the players weren't used to sleeves for the most part. A bit of a stretch, but I'm inclined to agree. The best comment I saw was "they look like the top to a children's pajama set"

The whole Bynum thing smells. From the get go with that structure you knew they were looking to deal him at some point during the season. They were never gambling on him to become a center piece to that team but to become a trade asset. Fuck the cavs. If they think bron is going to return to that three ring service they are delusional.

word is the Heat & Clippers want him. I think he's (potentially) too good of a player to play behind 2 other bigs like Griffin & Jordan and wouldn't like to be 3rd fiddle, regardless of how fragile his knees are. Miami would be interesting tho as far his "lack of motivation" to play ball I'm sure a potential 3rd ring and maybe even a possible starting role down the line (depending on health & performance) should reinvigorate him. should be interesting to see what happens to him wherever he goes
Title: Re: NBA Thread
Post by: bentmode on December 31, 2013, 02:15:30 PM
At this point in his career you don't want him playing more than 20 mins a game anyways. Playing behind dj and Blake would be a non issue and Miami likes to play bosh at center with their small ball philosophy. In both cases those offenses are so potent he would be a 5th option in most rotations. Miami needs him for boards and the clips need him in crunch time to make free throws. But this is all if dude wants to play ball opposed to bumping Trina and building computers while working from home.

Bynum's 26 years old for god's sake. Not even in the prime of his career and you want to hold him to under 20 minutes?

Bynum could be a top 5 big man in the NBA, but his work ethic and body need serious work. If 80 million can't light a fire under the guy, nothing will.

Big tree falls hard. He's not a Kareem or Hakeem body type built to last. He's a BIG man. Dudes like shaq come once in a life time. The only 7 footer in the league right now playing productive minutes is roy hibbert and hes more of a defensive specialist. Bynum's been in the league 8 years already and has shown over that time that he's not guaranteed a full season. So yeah as a hypothetical coach or GM for a contending team in a regular season 20-22 mins seems about right in a time share with a sub 7 foot center that can run the floor and keep up with smaller line ups that that the majority of the league runs. If you actually watch basketball you know two things. One, the big man is dead and no one has post moves. In this day in age Bynum is a luxury and not a necessity.


As for the raptors, who is this tem and what have they done with the Toronto proffesional basketball team. Big win tonight against the pacers. It's clear that psycho t is putting this team on his back. All jokes aside they staryed play great team ball once the ball started to move after the black hole formerly known as Rudy gay departed.Can't wait for the hornets to sign him. I have to say though the raps are getting a little lucky here. They arent taking the most efficient shots. Sometimes the ball goes down.

I was implying that Charlotte makes a lot of poor business decisions and throwing money at Rudy Gay seems to be the next domino to fall.

As far as Granger goes I have no problem with him staying on the team. They seemed to be a shooter shy despite playing at the level that they do. Indy tends to have a problem putting up points when they have just two guys who can score regularly and efficiently. Lance is great but he's one of those guys who needs the ball in his hands to do anything and regularly does dumb stuff that frustrates the hell out you. Total irrational confidence guy. Ideally they are looking for a loul deng or Jamal Crawford. Bulls think they can keep deng and the clips have plenty of shooters and are looking for someone with size.

I think you may be thinking of the Lance Stephenson of 2011-12 his maturity and on court decision making has improved vastly and let's face it DG is not the player he once was but is still convinced he is. If he didn't go down Paul George wouldn't have excelled to super stardom.

Bird has already openly stated his disdain for granger. It will come as a surprise to no one if he gets unloaded. Expiring contracts are worth their weight in gold.

I will contest that Stephenson is making huge strides and becoming a better player but his shot selection is still questionable albeit he is shooting in the high forties. Take a look at this chart:

(http://i39.tinypic.com/xm5p1j.jpg)

On the left side he likes to jack up 3's and continue to not make them. You can't do the same things and expect different results. In the painted area away from the basket he forces his shot. Him needing to develop a floater goes without saying. The mid range is always a gamble and the ability to make the worst shot in the game makes or breaks a two gaurd. He's definitely not Kobe. He's a good player but not an exceptional player but I can definitely see, over time, lance becoming a commodity. Definitely a valuable contract at the moment.

Nah I like lance on the pacers he's that wildcard, crazy-guy player every championship team needs. He may have his boneheaded plays here & there but he's also capable of being the unexpected hero on any given night
Pacers championship team? They just scored 80 points vs Toronto

Lance is having a career year in every category through 1/3 season... that won't continue and Indiana will have problems scoring late season


One quarter shy of making the NBA finals, 3rd best record in the NBA, best defensive ranking in the NBA, deep bench, if that's not Champion calibre I don't know what is

I too almost pointed out these things but then I realized that it's just tracer's dumbass and it really isn't worth arguing about

Anderson may be out for the season, rough sledding for him

The saddest and grimmest of all details concerning Gia Allemand's death have been revealed by police.

The 29-year-old dance instructor, who gained fame on The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad, had been fighting with her boyfriend hours before using a vacuum cleaner cord to hang herself from the stairwell of her home, according to an incident report obtained by E! News from the New Orleans Police Department.

Per the report, boyfriend Ryan Anderson told investigators that he and Allemand had argued through lunch on the afternoon of Aug. 12 "over her suspicions that he had been unfaithful to her."

Anderson, who plays for the NBA's newly renamed New Orleans Pelicans, said that he took her to a Walgreens to buy several items, including Nyquil cough syrup, before dropping her off at her apartment at around 6 p.m. Before she got out of the car, the report continues, Allemand told him that she still loved him, to which he said he replied, "I don't love you anymore."

PHOTOS: Celebrity deaths in 2013

Anderson went home, he said, and at 7:28 p.m. he got a text from Allemand's mother saying he needed to go check on Gia, that they had been on phone and then the line just went silent for 10 minutes.

The athlete told police that he arrived at Allemand's house 20 minutes later, opened the door with his key and found her unconscious but in a sitting position on the second step of a spiral staircase near her front door, a vacuum cleaner cord "wrapped around her neck many times," the report states.

The report continued: "Anderson stated that he frantically unwrapped the cord" from around her neck, she was "not responsive" and he stated that he "began yelling for help." A neighbor, Julieann Snow, later told police that she heard a male voice "frantically calling for help" at about 7:50 p.m. and, when she went next door, she saw Anderson "holding Ms. Allemand on the floor near the door."

Snow told Officers Daniel M. Oquendo and Robert Fuller, who first responded to the scene and filled out the incident report, that she then called 911.

Per the report, Oquendo then called for a crime lab and a homicide detective, the latter of whom surveyed the scene and advised that he saw no signs of foul play in the apartment.

The officers stated that they found a handwritten note lying on the dining room table that read, "Mom gets everything."

At University Hospital, where Allemand was taken by ambulance, a Dr. E. Jones told Oquendo and Fuller that she was "technically still alive," but on life support and being given drugs to keep her blood pressure at a life-sustaining level. Her prognosis was "grim," the doctor reportedly said, and it was estimated that she had been deprived of oxygen for approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

Allemand died after being taken off of life support on Aug. 13.

Anderson later said in a statement that she "was the most beautiful person" he knew.

"She had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed," he said. "All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith and love that we shared."

Her colleagues at Pure Barre gym, where she taught classes, organized a memorial for the late star in New Orleans on Saturday. At least 50 people gathered along the banks of the Mississippi River to share memories and prayers and toss white flowers in the water.

A public viewing was taking place today at Papavero Funeral Home in Maspeth, N.Y., and then Allemand's family is holding a funeral for her tomorrow at Trinity Grace Church of Chelsea in New York City.

The six-man field for the dunk contest at All-Star Weekend in New Orleans will feature three big names from the actual All-Star Game, according to sources close to the process.

Sources told ESPN.com that Indiana's Paul George, Washington's John Wall and Portland's Damian Lillard are confirmed entrants in the dunk field that will be officially announced later Thursday on TNT.

ESPN.com reported Wednesday night that George, Wall and Lillard were poised to join defending champion Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors in the competition.

Sources confirmed Thursday that Golden State's Harrison Barnes and Sacramento rookie Ben McLemore are the other two participants in the contest, which has met with lukewarm reviews the past several years, partly due to a lack of star power on display.

The All-Star Game is Sunday, Feb. 16, at New Orleans Arena.

With Paul and Bryant highly unlikely to play who do you think will replace them for the west?

You can pretty much sleep on any team in the East not named the Pacers or Heat.

Trade deadline was a bust more or less. New CBA means no-ones trading picks for anything and just dumping outta-favour older guys like Baby, Granger, Bynum, MWP etc. who then just go and sign with a contender for nothing. So the Clippers etc. don't even have to worry about the trade deadline cause why give up assets and trade for those guys when you can just claim them all off waivers. I can kinda see it stalemating hard an it sure sucked the fun outta trade week. Maybe the offseason will be different.

Looking at the landscape of the league, regardless of the new cba, the only marquee player with the likelyhood of being traded was melo with the small potential of a terrible Minnesota front office pulling off a k love trade. Both of which would have garnered a kings ransom that no real contender could have possibly paid for. Every year there is this whole hype for some blockbuster trade and more times than not it never happens. Maybe lets stop hype beasting the trade deadline.

Well the teams split the season series 2-2. We have a better overall record, better road record, have FAR better offensive numbers (Chicago ranks an embarrassing 30th in scoring), and are a much deeper team in my opinion. Bulls just have better defense.

So how is Chicago cut and dry "better" than the Toronto Raptors? please state your case good sir.

I don't think at the beginning of this season anyone thought the Raptors would be in the position they are right now. I didn't, at least. And I don't know about franchise building but things feel a bit more positive here than they have recently. Get these guys some playoff experience and see how we do next year. See if we hold on to Lowry, though.

To be honest I haven't been a Raptors fan since the second round exit in 2001.

Welcome to ESPN. They will always give more attention to the big name and big market teams. Its no surprise that they talk about how much the Knicks suck rather than focusing on the Wizards or Raptors. But it doesn't matter anyways, there are teams in the West that aren't even seeded in a playoff spot that are better than the third best team in the east.

As a Laker fan I honestly do not see how they would let Phil Jackson slip away from them and go to the Knicks. He's engaged to Jeannie Buss, he doesn't really want to leave the city of LA, the lakers are about to enter a rebuilding process with a lottery pick this year and a hell of a free agent class in 2015 so he would be primed to start his legacy in the front office. Now if he does go to NY, the lakers are going to be competing against the recruitment of Phil Jackson when trying to get those free agents in 2015. Stupid on the Lakers part if they don't swoop in and bring Phil back to a front office role.
