the cavs and the lakers(after their loss to the hornets) have identical records and are now leading their respective conferences...
Also despite the media being whipped in a fenzy on how intense the C's are right from game one till the end, playing with that intensity almost always results in burnout especially when you consider that guys like KG, Allen and Pierce are 32,33 and 31 respectively.
They desperately need more depth especially at the 2 and 3 positions but the problem is any possible pieces they have which would be attractive (expirings, trade exemptions etc) are all essential for their rotation (Rondo, Powe, House,Cassel, Davis). They've also got a couple of bad contracts for guys like Scalabrine etc and 3 max contracts on their books which are hard to move. If Danny Ainge can pull something off without giving much up then he's a genius.
pretty intense game in cleveland between the cavs and the celtics, the cavs leading 61-56 in the 3rd...
Bron is single handedly destroying the C's. This is frigging awesome. Delonte showing how to shut down Rondo as well, such an awesome defender at the top of the key. 83-68 now.
Pistons-Nuggets and Mavs-Suns also on today. Awesome day.
So annoyed that I'm basically limited to highlights, would have loved to watch Cavs vs Celtics, especially seeing as LBJ destroyed them by all reports. Without seeing anything other than highlights, am I to assume that what he is doing this season is really something special? Or is it say on par with his last season, only the team has improved and that's why they're top of the conferance standings, and equal top in the league?
Nah Bron's on another level right now. Last season he was great with th eball in his hands but not so without it. This year however his intensity on D is awesome and he's the complete package going forwards, his outside shot is sweet right now.
Still think when Kobe tries he's a better player but Lebron is making a team which would be sub .500 without him into a force.
Also, Shaq is playing some awesome ball right now. Looks fit active and has got some of his hops back. Apart from the usual suspects in the West I reckon they're the most dangerous to spring something. Same deal with Detroit in the East, not there yet but no team wants to face them the way they're developing.
Anyone see Hornets v Dallas today? Looks like CP3 was a bit good. 33 points, 11 assists, 10 boards & 7 steals
Nice to see a fully fit Bulls lineup too. We've won two in a row since my boy Captain Kirk came back and beating the team with the best record in the NBA should definitely lift their spirits. They've got a tough schedule ahead of them so they really needed this win.
Orlando with a bit of a surge now. Seven straight and swept their road trip. It's doubtful that they'll beat Boston or Cleveland in the playoffs, but if Howard keeps maturing the way other NBA centers did, they could push for a title in a few years time.
Their perimeter shooting is the best in the league and with Howard there the floor is always spread. Jameer has been so ridiculously good this season, he's nailing shots fom everywhere is impossible to beat off the dribble when he's guarding you and is taking over some games when the others aren't doing anything. When they get Pietrus back that starting 5 is going to be sick.
Their problem is having next to nothing on the bench, Courtney Lee looks like he'll be good, Gortat is giving them good minutes and Johnson is decent but they've got no scoring when their first unit is out. Can't see who they'll bring in via trades but if they draft really well next season could be big for them. A work in progress but they're really close now.
All-Star starting line up announced.
Prowler did you see Tyrus' dunk on JO's head yesterday?
Enough to make a guy retire IMO. Was sick.
Yeah but not much else they seem to be able to do inside, especially since they seem to be wasting Gray.
Loving the contribution Mo Williams has made to the Cavs this season. A career high 43 points tonight, and just 2 rebounds away from a Triple-Double, along with LBJ's triple double put their home streak out to 21.
