Howard remains the obvious #1. After that, candidates for #2 are (alphabetically) Deng, Iguodala, Kevin Martin, Josh Smith, Varejao. I have to think those five guys go 2-6.
After that, it's guys like Al Jefferson, Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris. Good careers, but not on the same level, right?
One thing is for certain: our end-of-thread scrub tradition is not a good sign for MKG
@jwquick: Brandon Roy agent Greg Lawrence adds that he's "sure" he and Roy will have discussion about NBA return "soon"

And I'm not sure I could have told you "Rafael Araujo" was the name of a basketball player until I looked up that draft today.
I refuse to admit Al Jefferson is that good
Al played with 5 groups of 5 for over 100 minutes this season. All 5 had a negative adjusted +/- and all 5 were outscored this season. Interestingly, my guess is only 1 of those has a chance to be back next year and that is the closing starting line-up of Harris, Hayward, Carroll, Millsap and Jefferson which was outscored when on the floor an terrible defensively at 115.16 pts per 100 possessions.

I just don't think a team so defensively weak in the paint can be a legitimate contender.
Harris, Hayward, Carroll, Millsap and Jefferson
Livingston definitely lower than 2. He was never that, that great.
On the Spurs, he'd be a taller DeJuan Blair.
I probably rank Iggy over Deng as well.
On the Spurs, [Al Jefferson]'d be a taller DeJuan Blair.
It's well established that I hate the Celtics. But every single call seems to be going to Boston this game.
I'm pretty sure I admitted it was crazypants at the time (sorry, too lazy to look it up exactly), but when I made my preseason prediction that Rondo would win the MVP if he could be playoff Rondo all season, this is what I had in mind.
It's well established that I hate the Celtics. But every single call seems to be going to Boston this game. The worst was LeBron getting clearly grabbed from behind right in front of a ref watching on a breakaway play and the ref called nothing. That's one of the worst no calls I've ever seen, actually.
LeBron was really, really, really good this year.
If there's any justice Garnett will get a game 4 suspension for throwing his elbow.
Predictable though. It was a Celtics fan who said he would be looking forward to them getting all the calls so the NBA wouldn't have a sweep.
...But it was especially frustrating because it was so extremely obvious. James slowed down because he knew he was fouled. The Celtic (Pietrus I think) quite clearly wanted to foul.
Love to see the Laker fans talking about how the Celtics got all the calls tonight, yet denying that the Celtics didn't get calls in game 2. And by "the Laker fans" I mean "Anaheim Rallymonkey of Maryland".
This is why you want HCA, because this is what happens when you play at home.
I understand why so many of you despise him, but man will I miss that guy when he's gone.
I don't think it happens EVERY time there's a home game, but as we discussed last thread, it does seem to happen all the damn time when a team goes home down 2-0.
Twyman sometimes worried that his wife and family might become upset over the amount of time he devoted to Stokes over 12 years, but his daughter said in an interview that they had come to look forward to Stokes's Sunday visits from the hospital. Twyman's wife of 57 years, the former Carole Frey, became, with her husband, a co-trustee of the Maurice Stokes Foundation, which was set up to defray Stokes's hospital costs but grew to help other needy N.B.A. veterans as well.
The charity basketball tournament they began at Kutsher's Hotel in the Catskills drew stars like Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson and, of course, Chamberlain.
Years after his accident, when Stokes had recovered enough finger flexibility to type, his first message was: "Dear Jack, How can I ever thank you?"
Granting that anything can happen, I am looking at this as the last run of the Pierce/Garnett/Allen/Rondo Celtics.
I'm wishcasting Josh Smith onto the team, because he and Rondo played HS ball together and he's said a handful of complementary/envious things about Boston, but it looks like that would require him not getting traded and them signing him as an FA after next year.

Soft RT @ProHoopsHistory: 1977 postseason, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar averaged 34.5 pts, 18 rebs, 4 asts, 3.5 blks, 1.7 stls, 61% FG over 11 games
you may find that visiting teams foul more, home teams are more agressive to the rim, ect.
NBA players know that they're more likely to get calls at home, and they play more aggressively at home. I don't know how you resolve that.
That depends. Their looks from 3 have mostly been wide open all series. They have guys that can and will make 50% of their wide open threes.
93--so the Spurs are, what, two makes below what they should be for the series, if you expect 37%? doesn't strike me as decisive. you could just as easily argue game #1 WAS the bad game....
