I'm glad he punked this Aldrich scrub .. this guy can't play and thinks he's the ish ..

Good game by D12 ... he'll be back at 100% before the end of the year

I thought he was awesome tonight.. He got us going in the 1st with a couple of great lefty hook shots, and the ones he missed throughout the game were all shots I'll take every day... He didn't get stripped which was the biggest problem.

Overall, he was just BEASTING out there. That block and dunk on the other end & that alley oop dunk with the left? :man4: :man4:


He is great in the p&r, but his back to the basket game is extremely awkward at times. Clumsy footwork, rushed releases, choppy overall. he may never be a back to the basket guy, and I guess he really doesn't need to...

Agreed. I bet the biggest person pissed about the D'Antoni hire is Shaq. :man10:

Dwight is gonna put up prolific numbers for the next few years, and he probably won't have to master his post game to do so

He definitely seems to be getting his legs back, although he's still not 100%. Despite this, he's continuing to dominate and when he does get back to full form the rest of the league better watch out.

Well to be completely fair, the points against Howard for Bynum are still valid. Bynum definitely has a more refined post game, and Dwight will never be a true 7 footer. Bynum's just shown that we had our legitimate reasons for fearing his health.

Damn Dwight had me yelling OOOOOHHHH!!!!! 3 times tonight.

He had the block then ran the wing and got the 1 handed flush
The play where he cut to the basket then Jordan Hill got him the ball then MONSTER DUNK
The alleyoop from Kobe with the one handed left handed flush

BEAST :jam2:

There can't be any valid points when Bynum might not even play this season. Whatever his advantages are/were, they cease to exist when he's dressed in a suit.

One thing that's for sure, Bynum is definitely the better bowler!

On postgame, they said D12 is about 75-80% healthy. If that's 75-80% healthy Stern, might commit suicide when Dwight is fully healthy and destroying the league. Mitch's ultimate "Basketball Reasons" revenge. Retire or Kill yourself Stern MMMUUUWWWAAHHHHH!!!!

Wasn't it reported Williams was mad at Howard or something for opting in? or something like that.

Deron's just pissed because the Nets are going to be a perennial 1st/2nd round exist while the Dwight will win multiple rings with the Lakers.
