no denying it...the knicks are playing some impressive ball. i think the additions of all those "old" guys (aka saavy vets) really helped balance out that roster and just further push that culture shift started by the arrival of tyson chandler and mike woodson taking over.

amare still looming though. you have to think they find a way to make it work.

Unfortunately, the Clips won. The Lakers keep digging their hold a little deeper each time they lose and the Clippers win. I'm still holding out hope we can win that Pacific Division and get Home Court in the First Round...

Agreed. Catching up to the Clippers is just wishful thinking at this point. Let's wait until the Lakers are at least competing for a playoff spot before we worry about winning the division.

Amir should have been suspended 5 games with no pay. You don't show it is OK to go after a ref or an NBA exec out in the public. It is disrespectful to the game. He may do the same to a coach like Sprewell did.
This isn't Futbol (soccer). Maybe boxing judges should be gone after though.

That has to be one of the worst flops of this season...

...and that was one WWE move by chalmers. :boxing1: :jam2:
“Look, we don’t get five championships by being sympathetic towards each other and kissing each other’s a– during the game,” Bryant said Wednesday when asked about the Lakers’ upcoming game against the Thunder next week. “I’m going to demolish him. He understands that. If he switches off on me in the post, there’s going to be problems. I’m sure he’ll put an elbow right in my back, and that’s why we love each other.”

2 things....

1.) I think we need to see the side angle to see if there was actually contact or not, can't really tell with that view.

2.) There was definitely contact the second hit he took. :man10:

That was a long three by Williams, two very entertaining games on ESPN tonight.

So the Spurs lost and the Heat lost they must both suck
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

20 points for Derek today. I don't like the Mavs, but I'm really happy for him, didn't think he still had those kind of games in him.

Mike Brown literally made all of our role players play worse.

Anyway, I like both this Timberwolves team. I like the way they play, and I didn't expect Rubio to play so well in his first game back. Love just needs to stop sucking, and they're just going to be another tough team in the West.

I'm curious to see how the Mavs play with Dirk too.

I don't understand. Are either the Spurs or the cHeat 3 games below 500 in a home heavy schedule playing against mostly bad teams?

Mike Brown didn't make Derek Fisher any worse. I don't know how you can say that. That is just baffling to me.

You guys really think Brown had that much power? To simply just make a player bad? :man10:

This is Derek Fisher. Derek Fisher. 38 year old Derek Fisher. And even he gets the benefit of the doubt for Brown's coaching? :man10:

Anyways...here's how you've felt about him in the past 6 months. Funny how all the blame shifted from the players to the coaching.

Regardless, Sessions on a bad night is better than Fisher and Blake combined.


Some of us are already forgetting how terrible Fisher was.


I want him to head to Miami and get a lot of playing time so he can destroy any chance they have of winning.


I don't see us as contenders yet, but I'm also really excited to see what this team can do without Fisher holding us back.


even though the idea of benching Fisher permanently is extremely enticing.


Benching Fisher would definitely improve our team


Stat tells me that the smarter teams leave Fisher open.


Something must happen to bump Fisher out of the lineup.



So what happened? What changed so much that Fisher is now not responsible for his play, but Mike Brown is? If Mike Brown was the one holding Fisher back (by playing him 30 minutes a game) why would you call for his benching? How would that help Fisher break free of the chains that Mike Brown is seemingly in control of? Where is that line? At what point do we say (besides every other day for the past 6 months prior to Brown's firing), "Hey, Fisher you blow", instead of saying silly repeated rhetoric such as my personal favorite 'he wasn't using him correctly.'

Mike Brown.

Made Derek Fisher worse.

I just can't take y'all seriously.

Uh...have you missed the past few months of basketball? I still don't think Fisher is good, but with Mike Brown at the helm, a lot of our role players sucked. What happened after he left? Every single one of them got better. Some hit career highs. Others are shooting much better. When nearly everyone is shooting better or playing better with a new coach, then it's time to start thinking, "Oh shoot. Maybe it was Mike Brown."

Luke Walton
Jason Kapono
Andrew Goudelock
Ramon Sessions
Derrick Caracter
Matt Barnes
Lamar Odom

:thezen:


Which one of them got better?

Wow. Are you trolling on purpose? O.o You're actually naming people who haven't even played for Mike Brown?

Last I'd checked Walton was actually playing well or something. He'd earned a few minutes :man10:

Is he still playing?

IMO Glock/Sessions would have gained the most with the offense we are running right now. Glock for his shooting, Sessions for his penetrating.

Kapono/Walton were washed up before and after Brown was here, so no gain there.

Barnes would stay the same and Lamar got fat. :man10:
