Is Kidd a big part of the early problems?
He gets an F. He gets a 0. My wife could coach a team to a 29th ranking for that team. She doesn't know much about basketball. He just... his guys, I don't think they have any purpose and passion to what they're doing. I think they're discombobulated. Listen, Henry, he was an amazing player, one of my favorite of all time for a lot of different reasons, but our profession is different from his profession, and to assume that that transition is easy, it's a short bridge, is crazy. He has a long way to go to figure this out. Do I think he'll be better? Will they be better? It seems very likely. But as he's currently doing, he's the worst coach in the NBA.
Has Garnett suddenly hit the wall? Is this thing going to be a massive disaster for Prokhorov? Is Kidd a big part of the early problems?
I'd seriously expect something like half the league to at least take a look at Asik. I don't want to oversell him, he's not a franchise-changer, but he's a guy who can start at center for a good team, isn't he?
Speaks for itself
It's been enough games, and it is really looking like Boris Diaw is a changed player w/r/t attacking and taking open shots. He is pulling the trigger on 3pt attempts and is having his best season to date.
David Thorpe sure thinks so
Ziller proposes trading Jimmer and Jason Thompson for Asik.
this is...light on specifics
The Knicks' suck. I'm tired of defending Carmelo. If they just would have targeted him and LeBron with their cap space (with a preference for LeBron, of course) this whole franchise would have been different. LeBron passed, you wait for Carmelo. But no..... they just had to have Stat. They had to make a move. It's the story of this ####### team under Dolan. Never do you say to yourself, "Man, the Knicks handled that one well." Never, never.
Did he guarantee a win this time? Look what happened.
Asik glued to the bench again. This can't last much longer.
Cousins for Gay and Asik doesn't make any sense for Sacramento. I don't think there is any reason to trade Cousins at this point. Ziller proposes trading Jimmer and Jason Thompson for Asik. I would support that seeing as the former two are useless players, but I don't know why Houston would be interested.
I think 5 years was obviously not going to happen, but it's conceivable they could have gotten, say, 3 good years out of Stoudemire. And, man, did he look good when he first got to the Knicks. Not like young buck Stoudemire good but like a real NBA player, which I think gave those Knicks a total of one.
Larry coon just tweeted that he thinks teams should have the option of turning down FTA in favor of retaining possession
I think there was at least a little bad luck involved with Amar'e and his knees breaking down. Now, the fact that the Suns' incredible medical staff was unwilling to sign off on a five-year deal for Amar'e is troublesome
If the worst case for the Knicks come true at this point, that they completely suck and Melo leaves, that leaves a disaster of a roster which makes the current Laker situation look fabulous in comparison.
 yeah but the blank slate with no picks, no young player worth a damn is kinda a problem , and as much as we laugh about he Laker brand attractive players, that seem to hold a lot more weight than the Knicks brand doing the same.
These games are a highlight for the lesser teams. Get to play a famous program? You never know, you might win...
That FTA/FGA, given that 2/3rds of the FGA are threes is really confusing.
I really did not expect Roy Hibbert to become this good when he was at Georgetown. He just threw in a running left handed hook and looked comfortable doing it. He's also either blocked or inhibited about 5 or 6 shot attempts, and it's still the first quarter.
Checking in on LeBron... it's early, but injuries do appear to be affecting his stat line. He's averaging what would be a career worst per 36 in shots (16.4), offensive boards (0.5), steals (0.7, half his previous low), blocks (0.3, same), turnovers (3.9 - old high is 3.3), and his worst defensive board count since he was a rookie (4.9). Those numbers don't suggest superior athleticism, frankly.
tship - how is new msg vs old? are the changes noticable if you're a regular fan and not in one of the boxes?
If this kind of year continues for Dwight, don't you have to kinda wonder if he was maybe more of a system guy? He's never really been the same since he got Van Gundy fired.
Surprised at how little commentary we've had on Kobe's return to practice.
Chicago Bulls: Saw the game vs. Indy. People were saying that Rose was "back." It didn't really look that way to me, just looked like he hit a lot of 3s. The pre-game is still one of the best experiences in sports. Lights go down, Allan Parsons project comes up, people lose their ####. I haven't heard an arena get as loud as they did for D-Rose's intro. Best food in the Association.
Lebron might invest in a Miami MLS team. That must mean... never mind. Not doing this again.
Between his free throws, turnovers and lack of passing ability Howard just isn't a very good offensive player unless he's shooting a crazy high percentage, which is harder for him to do now that he's a little older and had some injuries. He just doesn't have well rounded offensive skills compared many of the better big men.
Howard is still a very good defensive player and elite rebounder, but he's can't singlehandedly turn a bad defensive team into a good one (which is an impossibly high standard). I think the supporting cast he had in Orlando was better than a lot of people realized and it fit in well with what Howard was good at.
Surprised at how little commentary we've had on Chase Budinger's return to workouts.
It's been overshadowed by the looming specter of the white mamba's resurrection.
if golden state needs a backup 5, this looks like it would work, via trademachine
