    Isn't the Ewing theory apply to teams that somehow perform better when their stars aren't available? heard it a huge deal when Rondo went down. Didn't mean it that you're expecting the Lakers to beat the Spurs, just love Kahwi so much

    Yeah, all I said was that I was hoping for it to happen. I didn't say it would happen, I didn't present any sort of technical argument for or against it and you tried to refute it.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Gosh, all I'm saying even if they did play better it might not be enough

    So Marc Gasol gets DPOY and JR Smith is the sixth man. No surprise at the latter. The DPOY race could've gone a few different ways though. I thought both Noah and Duncan had better cases than Marc, but that's a good choice as well.

    George Karl to get COTY IMO.

    I have real problems with Paul George winning Most Improved. The others I think were correct choices.

    Hadn't seen that yet. I thought Harden or Asik would have that wrapped up.

    I would've been pretty unhappy with both of those as well. I really don't like when a player wins the MIP award just because they got more minutes and more touches of the ball. George basically only "improved" because his usage rate went up significantly. I wouldn't have minded Harden, but as much as he improved his offence (not hugely IMO, he just gets more of the ball) his defence went into the sewer just as much. Asik is exactly the player he was for the Bulls except he now plays 35 minutes instead of 15.

    I personally think that Larry Sanders should have gotten it. His usage rate stayed exactly the same, his minutes only went up a little, and he improved in every statistical category. When you improve every stat despite being used the exact same amount I think you deserve to be called the most improved.

    Yeah you make a good point. Sanders would have gotten a lot more votes for the MIP and DPOY race if he played in a bigger market. I haven't seen too much of Asik this season but he definitely looks a much better offensive player and FT shooter compared to last year. His rebounding and defense has been the same.

    His free throw definitely improved, though I'm not so sure about his offense just because I don't think he was used well or often with the Bulls last year. The Rockets, knowing he would be a big piece for them, have designed plays and styles around him which benefit his way of playing (he sets the best legal screen in the NBA imo). Very good player and I love watching him.

    They worked a good shot for CJ and he airballed it haha. Adonal Foyle would've done better.

    So happy to read the Jason Collins story. Hopefully he encourages more players to stop denying themselves and come out.

    Yeah great stuff. Read some of his quotes about what has made him come out and be the "first", and its inspiring stuff. Sounds like a guy who completely understands the impact his actions will have i.e. and the long-term positive effect of someone finally "leading the way".
