You have your pbs when you're losing to the Chawks at home ( how is this even possible for a good West team ?)
Two horrible Westbrook games out of 3 ... not sure KD trying to get his Lebron on is the best thing for OKC either ... they need his points ... and another playmaker

I'm watching Ric Adelman coach a bunch of scrubs to a victory against the Brooklyn Nets on the Nets home floor.

Now I'm worried about what will happen when he comes back...I honestly think they need to consider bringing him off the bench for a few games to see how he fits in, and then slowly work him back into the starting lineup...I don't like Amare at the 4 and Melo at the 3 though...the game is changing and Melo plays MUCH better at the 4, and Amare would need to be at the 5 if he wants to play alongside Melo. Unfortunately only way that happens is if Chandler gets injured....



Careful..... they'll break you heart... A team with Melo and Stat isn't going to go far when it really counts.....


That's the thing everyone is forgetting...Melo HAS been to the WCF...and guess which year that was? It was 2008-09 season, the year he went to the OLYMPICS and tore it up. Why was Melo so good that year? Because he was in a groove and in SHAPE thanks to the olympics. Same thing will happen this year. Melo is going to have an MVP-type year. Even someone like Amare, when he's healthy, is one of the top bigs in the league...and remember he has also been to the WCF a few times, the one most recently being one of his better years as a Sun in 2010. I'm not worried about Melo this year at all....I expected the Knicks to be a top 4 team this year. Also as others have said about Mike Woodson, he did a FANTASTIC job with them last year after dantoni left, and I just felt that the players really responded to him. Felton never wanted to leave NY, and you can bet he's very happy to be back and he's IN SHAPE. The lock out really messed up a ton of players last year, and felton was one of them.


OK..... being in shape and a groove doesn't change who you are.....



Rooscooter, we agree on A LOT of things, such as Perkins being a bonafide SCRUB. However, I believe being in SHAPE and in a GROOVE DOES change who you are. Melo in the playoffs that year was ACTUALLY PLAYING DEFENSE. He was incredible all year actually. He even D'ed up on LeBron when they played the Cavs and outdueled him in Cleveland. All im saying is, I'm seeing that same type of confidence and swagger from Melo this year as I did 4 yrs back. He also has a very similar team around him...a very deep team with solid veterans and a mix of young guys that can play. Case and point: Look at Felton LAST YEAR. He was out of shape, and that caused him to play at a much lower level than what he was capable of. This year, he has come into shape, and you can tell he has that 2010 swagger back. The game is just as much mental as it is physical...and I think the Knicks came into this season with the right attitude and with the RIGHT coach. They had a PRE-training camp for God sakes!!! Their best player came into camp in shape, and their bigs worked with Hakeem. Everybody put in work, and I believe that is why they'll have a very nice season. I'm definitely expecting a top 4 squad in the East this year.

Texas Lakers Fan, you're right, I may have used the wrong words in describing Amare...what I meant to say was, when he WAS healthy and playing at the top of his game in 2010 before they got Melo, he WAS one of the top bigs, and he was leading that Knicks team at the time. Although Melo and Amare havne't figured out how to play with one another, I feel that Amare will find a way to make himself productive. He's too good of a player and lots of ppl are sleeping on him still. He has had some bad luck with injuries, but if he's on, its hard to stop him. I think once he gets back, it'll take a bit of time but he'll integrate himself nicely and they'll need him come playoff time. Just remember this, there's nobody on the HEAT that can really guard Amare when he's healthy....

^^We'll see on Melo... a lot of history to change if that's the case.... My issues with elevating Melo to the level of the other elite players is that he's folded mentally way before he has physically..... that's what my comment about groove and conditioning is about. He's way to easy to distract and get in a one on one contest....

Personally I think who he is was summed up pretty clearly in the punch and run thing a few years ago.... that was a "character moment" when we see beyond the facade.

WTS... he is a top 3 or 4 scorer when healthy and a pretty clutch shooter at times.

The Knicks will have a chance to get into the top 4 seeds in the East and if things go right they may be a top 2.... but I still see them failing when it counts. Felton, Melo and Stat aren't the kind of guys that lead a team IMHO....

Nice game by the Cavs... keep those Clips humble.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Irving was 54% in the clutch last season as a rookie ... that's better than every perimeter superstar in the league ... he keeps attacking the basket in the clutch instead of settling for the outside J like most of them

I watched that entire Clips-Cavs game and Dion Waiters is fearless with those big time shots. Got me up and out of my seat a couple of times with the degree of difficult type of shots he was hitting. As for Irving, well he's on my fantasy team for a reason. The guy is everything you want in an up and coming PG for only being

I like Kyrie a lot.

I want him to be a Laker when his rookie contract is up. He and Dwight would be amazing. Then add Kevin Love and you've got a Big 3 that really meshes perfectly. And there'd be no rebounds for the opposition.

^^ :man10: Afflalo is just about as good as Iggy though.... that's why I was surprised when they made that trade..... If I had a choice of the two I think I'd take Afflalo..... especially when you factor in price.

FabFourLakers wrote:It was MOSTLY a fantasy related post, as I would do this from time to time last year (if anybody remembers). I did catch the Spurs/Hornets 2nd half since it was on NBATV. I watched the Grizz/Clipps game since its local.

Grego, very good breakdown! I totally forgot that kawhi was DRAFTED by the Pacers!!! The reason they TRADED him was because they ALREADY had Paul George! Isn't that crazy? Yeah, I remember when that trade went down, I was like damn it, the Spurs done did it again. they always make smart moves. I expect the Spurs to be in the top 3 again this year, possibly even #1. They have the same team and Kawhi is in his 2nd season and looks like he has already improved, plus POP speaks very highly of him. You KNOW you're good when a coach like that gives you props.


Another guy to keep an eye out on (if he's still available) is SPENCER HAWES. If anybody remembers, he was a top 10 fantasy player last year in the beginning of the season until he got hurt. Obviously his value is directly tied to Andrew Bynum's health...but with that being a constant question mark, you might wanna scoop him up in case....esp if you HAVE Bynum on your team. Check out his stat line from tonight: 16 pts, 12 rebounds, 2 threes, 2 assists, 2 stls, and 5 blocks.


Thanks dude! I don't come on much to boards in general, but always enjoy reading your stuff.

Yep. Paul George and Granger made it tougher to keep him, but i feel like they drafted for the Spurs once they came on an agreement. It looks like it is working out for both, although I think the Spurs will get the upper hand. I love the guy. He's a Spurs type of player. Hard worker, lets his actions do his talking. Hill was good, but his height and abilities put him up against Parker and Manu. Too much talent in that area.

Hawes definitely puts up some stats. Should be interesting. Although, even last year, Pekovic did well Kevin Love in stats. So it's possible two big men can do well on the same team. It just depends how they get played. But he's a good bench pick up for a deep roster, so I agree he'd be a good one to have.

Another good one is AK47, especially with Love out.

Watching Bulls vs. OKC and it's just depressing how much more entertaining this game has been than any Lakers game has this season. Both teams just play fast and loose and confidently and even when they've been missing shots(westbrook is 5-19) they're still going hard and playing with a unity as-yet unseen in Lakersland. OKC isn't even playing particularly great by their standards, but with the way they move the ball and have off-the-dribble scoring options, if they played LA tomorrow they'd probably win by about 50 points.

At this point my issue is with Durant, not Westbrook. Westbrook is retarded, he can't help it, if people let him he is gonna chuck away and run over people like there's no tomorrow. But Durant, a guy THAT skilled, who can score THAT easily as he just did, he needs to be way more agressive and assertive, he can't let Westbrook outshoot him every night.
Durant's just too nice, too polite when it comes to Westbrook and teammates in general. Do you think Kobe would let someone like Westbrook take the ball away from him time and time again? Hell no.

Edit:
You see, this is what I'm talking about. This shouldn't be happening:
Royce Young ‏@dailythunder
This is the first time since his rookie year that KD has gone five straight games without scoring at least 25. Longest streak is 12.
