NBA thread
 
ah, my search button never works so,

Isaiah Thomas, what's with this guy?
Can anyone stop the C's?
If they beat the Bulls record of 72 wins, I won't really consider them a better team. They'll have to 3peat. I hope they do. I've always liked Ray Allen, and Garnett is still a young man. Allen's actually older, and look how many years Reggie Miller sat out on the arc draining threes.
That's my realistic side talking, I would really want The Rockets or the Cavs to win this year, but honestly I don't think McGrady even likes winning, and the Cavs probably don't have enough answers for the Celtics.
I'm real impressed with Kobe, and I even had a suspicion last year he was talking all that crunk about his teammates just to light a fire under them. I really disliked Kobe when he came in the league, but he's got a strong mind and strong heart to deal with the rape trial, and a great NBA coach writing a book about how selfish you are. He just kept plugging along, and now he's poised to be one of the best ever. Props, Kobe

yes, but as soon as football season ends the NBA always ratchets it up a few notches, they realize, it's the months between football and that other sport Americans used to love, and the NBA, and NHL realize it's their time to shine. sad but true. That is, I wish basketball was more watched than football.
I always laugh when I hear idiot radio DJ's furthering their stupid agenda's that football is man's sport. They always make jokes about the criminals and thugs that run up and down the 90 foot hardwood these days, but it's so plainly obvious the NFL has players with much worse character. The last time I remember an NBA player being in a lot of controversy was Sprewell strangling his coach 10 years ago. (petty drug arrests notwithstanding) There have been several worse cases than that in the NFL within the last year. Let's not even get into baseball.

I agree, Portland will be a contender: I'll say somewhere in the 50-win range. A team needs to be full of savvy veterans before they can think of winning 70.
The Warriors should have never traded JRich, but I think they'll make the playoffs.

i turned on basketball a few times and i've seen nothing. i've also not heard anything by the Sonics on the news lately. that and i dont really watch the news.

Laces Out Dan! 01-20-2008 11:18 PM

Sonics are doing horrible. Young team..Durant has proven himself an amazing player this year though.

under 01-20-2008 11:25 PM

yeah. thats probably the reason i havent been hearing much good news about em. i wish they were as popular as they were years ago when they actually had some good moments. but they're old news...

Bulls are playing like **** this year, but the Heat are playing even worse.


So I guess the latter makes up for the former.

ProggyMan 01-21-2008 11:27 AM

Portland is the next San Antonio...5 years from now...

Miami has an excuse...either Shaq or Wade..or both have been injured for the majority of the season.

ProggyMan 01-21-2008 07:02 PM

And Shaq fouls out of every other game...D-Wade is quietly having his best season ever. Not statistically, but just look how he breaks down the constant double teams thrown at him because no one bothers to cover Dorell ****ing Wright or whatever 8th man they happen to be starting.
