    This type of posting is not needed. You're talking to guys who between them watch something like 500 games a season ffs.

    Yeah my biggest issue this summer is that I've got an internship which is full time, so I'll probably only watch 10 or so games a week.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    I don't disagree with any of that. I'm not trying to cast doubt on his entire season, just haven't been highly disappointed by what I've seen, both in terms of the development of his skills and his decisionmaking. I think Rose has pretty much said roughly the equivalent.

    The first two were meant to be nothing more than banter. Obviously I don't fit here.
    The third was admittedly quite wanker-ific on my part, though phrased better, was meant to convey that Rose's game was really disappointing, despite hitting the game-winner, and much of that same kind of play was seen in the subsequent game; so I don't think my observations were totally off-base but maybe so.
    And yes, I'm a bitter, delusional knicks fan in addition to general NBA fan that's hoping Woodson stops with the Bargnani experiment and goes back to playing smaller lineups, which is where the Knicks clearly excel.

    500 games? Cool. Glad you guys are huge NBA fans too. Shame, that it seems I can't seem to get along here. I won't cause any more trouble. Enjoy the season. Looks like it's going to be a great one.

    Some serious woe is me there.

    I don't have any problem with you. I just disagreed with your statement on Rose, and commented on the poor timing of it. I didn't say he was good the whole game or even half as good as he was in his MVP season. He's not played an NBA minute for 18 months, he's going to take a long while to get back to game pace. Pre-season is garbage minutes and shouldn't be considered. You can see it's coming back with some of his plays, his layups are just as explosive as they once were and his handle is still the same. The jumper will come, it was never great but it takes time to find your jumper under pressure.

    Yeah, my post obviously wasn't meant to be "no Jonty Panesar's allowed". Just relax and let's talk ball.

    It ****s me to no end when teams at the end of games let people dribble out 10+ seconds before fouling. Either foul straight away or not at all, it shouldn't be that hard to understand.

    That was an incredible finish, can't believe Wade missed both free throws to even give Celtics a chance.

    BTW, I can't believe Michael Carter-Williams was only 11th pick. Former Aussie coach Brett Brown clearly the reason behind his excellent form. I'm really enjoying the type of basketball that Kevin Love and his Timberwolves are playing so far.

    At least Chicago still have other decent ballers and an Amazing coach. I reckon if Rose's injury plays out so he comes back in April, they will still likely be a 4th seed and in the playoffs all posts of stuff could happen.
