 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
There's also the he was the worst player on their Summer League team in '12 then was the worst player on their Summer League team in '13 then was the worst and least played player on the '13 preseason team before they allowed his guaranteed contract to vest part.
I would guess that Knicks history makes it impossible to prove that this was corruption and not incompetence
unless the Lakers somehow come up with a huge get in FA (James or Love), Howard's departure will probably continue to be a major reason the Lakers will be on the deck for awhile
The redundant thing is becoming SOP around here, and I don't agree. I think Butler could take over at the 3 next year if the Bulls got a real SG - or I guess if someone wanted to trade for Luol now.
I wonder, do we support all the same teams?
Find you own damn superstar and leave us ours
Why do you have to go there?
Find your own damn superstar
God, what an awful player.
I still remember the time UCLA alum Reggie Miller bailed on the Pacers for Tinseltown. Devastating.
Wolves' fans are still getting over Garnett's bailing early in his career as well, so Harper clearly really needs to be worried.
Avery Bradley with a 5-22 and 0 assists - that's his fifth straight game with none and leaves him with just 3 in his last 8 games - despite playing more than 20 minutes in every one of those games.
 I've been really impressed by his court vision/passing ability when I've watched him play.
In June 1993, about five years after Shaw was a first-round pick in the 1988 draft, Shaw’s father fell asleep at the wheel after driving all night. As the car rolled over, it sent everyone — Shaw’s father, mother, sister and niece — from the vehicle. Only Brianna — Shaw’s 11-month-old niece, who was named after Shaw — survived, and she was transported to the hospital in critical condition.
There really was no reason to keep Kwame Brown on the roster for the pre-season other than to have another guy who's picture could be up in Bilbao. there was no reason to sign him in the first place, since he's not actually good at anything, except maybe losing.
Re: Embiid, is there any clear evidence that guys who started playing later actually develop more dramatically in the NBA than guys who have been playing their whole lives? The idea makes intuitive sense, but it seems like for every Ibaka there's a Thabeet. Has someone studied this?
Apparently he's shooting 58% on 2 outside the paint.
