I don't know about the season but this is what I found.

Yahoo Sports wrote:Williams will be back after serving a one-game suspension, while Gasol (foot) and Wells (back spasms) are both questionable.

Alright thanks for the research.

So Wells & Gasul are questionable for tonight.

Without them, Memphis will be a total cakewalk. We need to crush this team by 30.

Game notes: Bryant is coming off a 5-for-23 shooting night - the second worst of his career during games in which he's shot at least 20 times. Rest assured that Bryant will try to get back on track against the Grizzlies. He'll have to work on both ends of the court if he's matched against Posey on defense. Posey has become the Grizzlies' most potent offensive threat, scoring 30 or more points in three of the past five games.

Well ... one quick note ... since no one else seems to be able to get onsite ...

Looks like both the Lakers and Kings are starting their games off tonight very sluggishly.

They both better pick it up ...

This is depressing, I might just watch the Dodger game. Boring but at least the Dodgers show heart. Let's wake up! I might as well go over there and b1tch slap them or suit up myself, I'll hit the wide open lays up for you guys! This is pathetic.

An entertaining evening so far ...

Rockets hold on over the Nuggets ... and Spurs handle the Blazers ... leaving all three of them (Nuggets, Blazers and Jazz) tied again for that last spot.

Kings still refuse to play any defense ... probably a bit tired after last night.
Wolves look tired as well ... but I knew this wouldn't be an easy game for them on a back to back after a big game last night. Hopefully they are just coasting for now till they can take over in the fourth quarter.
Lakers looked sluggish early, made a decent come back in the second ... but the Grizz have really come to play tonight ... it's not gonna be easy for the Lakers tonight.

And meanwhile, my Cubbies are in a fight in Atlanta ... 15th inning now.

This is fun :man1:

So what do you wanna talk about T-Wolves? This thread is now pointless seeing is how no one can get on the site. I don't like the T-Wolves but I don't hate em. Kevin Garnett is amazing. I was pissed last year when they screwed him over for the MVP award. Think the voters pot will wear off before they vote this year?

Pretty sure that KG will get it without too much trouble ... Each of the other potentials have one or more reasons why they can be discounted ... and that should help out KG a bit.

KG and Kobe both look like they've had good first halves tonight.

If you guys pull off the win and the Kings lose tonight ... it's gonna be quite a game on Sunday eh?! hehe

Don't you think he deserved it last year? They called Duncrap a double double machine and forget KG had the most last year. KG is crazy, that look in his eyes yesterday was like damn.

I thought that last year they were so freaking close it was nearly impossible to tell ... their stats were very close and they both mean a ton to their teams ... Personally, I was disappointed that KG didn't get it last year, since I thought he more than deserved it. But I guess I somewhat accepted it, since Duncan managed to get the Ring ... and that means something in my opinion.
I would never say that Duncan was better than KG last year, but it's tought to say that KG was that much better than Duncan either ...
I guess I'm just glad to see KG come back with such a stellar season and earn himself an MVP this year.

Who do you think will get coach of the year? I think Jerry Sloan if his team makes the post-season. They lost Malone, Stockton, Harping in the season to an injury that kept him out. I don't think Hubie will cuz he does have talent on his team. A lot more than Sloan does.

Well ... looks like Memphis isn't gonna hold onto this one ... tie game now.

Wish I could stick around tonight ... but I gotta run.

Lakers probably have this one won ... Kings and Wolves better wake up if they wanna get the wins.

One last quickie ...

Yeah, I agree ... Sloan has really shown his coaching ability this year, and I couldn't give it to anybody else this year. He's very deserving.
