I don't much blame Jr.Smith's decision. It could've easily turned into a disaster had he gave it to Melo (if I'm thinking from his perspective). The clock was about at 2 seconds by the time whoever it was on the knicks made the cut from Melo to the rim. Had he made the pass, I was thinking the guy defending the cutter was going to double back towards Melo for the steal - in which Jr was cautious, waiting for the cutter to pass.

Can only let so much time pass for a post entry. I just didn't like the play, there was barely enough time to make the pass and have Melo get a decent look off... but hey, got to go with your gut.

Raps vs Bulls is gonna be a real good game between two teams that are probably going to meet in the eastern conference finals. I hate to say this but the Raps might have a slight edge on my Bulls since they have more fire power off the bench.

Oh man that was pretty cool. They just showed a clip of my high school beating Lebron James in the State finals back in 02 on ESPN 2 on the show "Becoming".

^ Must be surreal.

Rose. Injured. Again. 3 times thus' far. I knew he was injury prone from his rookie year when he injured himself cutting an apple.

Jeff Teague has my most-impressed-by Dunk of the Year. Right behind is some rook in Philly, had a sick one-handed oop on somebody while falling.

why did this thread die? okc on a tear, chicago rolling, cleveland still finding there way(i think waiters needs to go), lowry balling without derozan. Heck im already excited for playoff basketball. If i had to give an early season predicion for that, it'd be cavs bulls ecf, bulls in six. in the west idk, toss up between spurs, thunder, grizz, and warriors. My gut says thunder bulls in the finals(like it shouldve been in 2012) but im having strong feelings about the grizz and spurs making it out of the west. I think the likely matchup is bulls spurs in the finals, with the grizz being my next pick and thunder after them. I like the warriors but they need more playoff experience, tho i think wcf is a lock for them. Tho i want my thunder spurs rematch(yes 3rd in 4 years) and i want it to go 7 this time. cleveland i don't think makes finals, there bottom of the league in defense, and what good is putting up 100 a night if your giving up 105, plus, lebron and kyrie aren't gelling, and kyrie i think is too young to understand how to, the way wade did in 2011. chicago is too good on both ends of the court, there no longer dependent on rose, and hey can now put up 100+ and hold you to sub 90.

Go Bucks! NBA Champs!!!!

My interest in the NBA directly correlates on how bad the Bucks are. They are doing decent this year. So I will be a 'fan' until it lasts. And The Greek Freak is starting to really show how good he can be. Jason Kidd seems to be a really good coach. They were supposed to be incredibly bad this year, so anything is a bonus. No reason to suck this year since I think the draft next year is terrible.

You are the wave, I am the naked island.

I still can't believe I paid $39 for these seats last Saturday. I guess that's what happens when your favorite team sucks. I hope the Pacers get back Lance Stephenson since the Hornets are shopping him around. Pacers have never had great luck in the draft, so I'm not counting on them landing a top 5 pick.

I managed to take a quick and horrible pic of Jeremy Lin leaving the team hotel in downtown Indy on Monday when the Lakers were in town. I was hoping to see Kobe, but he was to good to take the bus with the team. Several of us waited in the cold for almost 2 hours and he was a no show.

Man... I'd love to see any NBA game live, especially that close and that cheap, even if the team sucks. I'd kill to see the Mavs play, my dream. Unfortunately the price to even get to a game location is probably a 4 digit figure.

I would love to see a Raptors vs Blazers or Grizzlies Finals. I don't see the Raptors getting there, even if everyone was healthy. NBA and its refs would have found a way to screw them over.

Can someone tell me how the rise of the Raptors came about? I admittedly haven't been following much at all. I never get around to watching games or keeping up to date with them. Like, did they acquire a great player in a trade? New great coach? As far as I'm aware or remember, they seemed to be on a big upswing after trading away Gay. The Raptors rise seemed so sudden.

Paul George got hurt and Lance Stephenson left the Pacers. The Miami Heat broke apart. These both opened the door for the Raptors and Wizards to make their move in the East. Both were teams on the rise to begin with. The second best team in the Raptors division currently has a 10-14 record so their current record isn't what it seems. Raptors wouldn't survive in the Western Conference.

The raptors rise came about, cuz derozan realized his potential and started putting up 22 a game, and lowry put up 17. this year they built on that and now lowry is ballin out of his mind, and toronto is a little deeper than last year.there top defensive team(6 last year in def rating, i forget where there ranked this year), and there a top ranked offense.

Awww yeah! Rondo to the Mavs! I hope this works out really well for them. I'll miss Wright and Crowder though.

Edit: Uhhh, I wonder what they are gonna do about a backup center since Wright is gone...





Doesn't matter, has Rondo.
