I'm gonna hate him all year for denying me a killer Rockets Big 3.
So are the Lakers going to win 25 games this year? They won 27 without Kobe but that team is horrible. I think an over under of 29.5 would be tough.
I wonder if Carmelo is wishing he chose differently. Bulls will be 11 deep when Butler comes back. that depth should get them the #1 seed. They were saying the Bulls 2nd team beats the 1st team a lot in practice. Crazy.
can't wait to see the cavs tonight even if it's against the Knicks.
Lebron obviously will play much better than he did tonight, but one thing I noticed was that the new smaller LeBron could not just beast people the way he used to. Melo was pushing him around when Lebron tried to D him up and he was not the freight train he always has been going through the lane. On the upside, Love's game is a perfect complement to Lebron's, those two were meant to play together......too bad you cant say the same about the rest of the cavs team. Varejo ruined every offensive possession in which he touched the ball, waiters is way too tentative and Irving looked like he has no idea what his role is. Blatt is going to be under a lot of heat really fast if this continues.
I'm afraid the Laker Haters will have a field day this season, that injury to Randle takes away the one guy we hoped could develop into something special. When your hopes ride on Wesley Johnson and Ed Davis....its going to be a long year.
I am really thrilled for Pau getting respect and a good run with Bulls, you guys are going to love him.
My Better Late Than Never Playoff Predictions:
1. L.A. (Clippers)
2. San Antonio
3. Golden State
8. Dallas (folks are high on them, but I don't like their PG/ wing depth - they'll miss Vince)
* New Orleans
Things I like:
1. Mavs offense. Gonna be the best in the League on that end of the floor. Absolutely killer from all areas. Hugely entertaining win from those guys.
2. QUINSANITY! Remember how last year I was telling you guys the BK Nets were gonna be nice? (Elvis backed me up but you other guys DOUBTED). Same thing this year, except with the Knicks. They are gonna be ok.
3. LeBrons Alpha Douchebag Pregame Speech. Why would I like this? Because its gonna be hilarious when K.Love splits town.
Things I really don't like:
BROOOODDIEEEE NOOOOOOO. This is what happens when you build a state on an Indian burial ground. Anthony Davis was right there on the board for me to draft. I thought about it all summer. And when the time came, I was suckered in by the glitzy prospect of 35 shots a night from a insane gremlin. Goddammit. Just give the Thunder back to Seattle already, they're never gonna win shit.
"Quentin Dailey got 30 points they said. The guy's unbelievable, man. Say all you want about Michael Jordan, he's a great fuckin' ball player. But Quentin Dailey's got a gun like a howitzer, man. Thirty feet. Boom, boom, boom. He gets hot, he's fabulous."
I'm worried about my Clips. They've been up and down since pre-season, and already weak on the wings, suddenly Redick and Barnes can't hit anything. Yesterday they collapsed against the Kings at home.
My boys are coming to town tonight Z. Be wary of our hot 3-point shooting. (1 for 25 against the Rockets Saturday night. 1 FOR 25!). They only lost by 14, which was miraculous. Should be a fun one.
Glad nobody ended up injured. I'm all for letting them play but the game was getting away from the refs and they didn't seem to recognize that.
Hope Aminu is alright he was providing some much needed toughness on the glass first half. Went out with a knee injury. Monta damn near went down with another one at the end, not really a fan of the 'wrap a guy up from behind' move. But that's really on the refs, Rondo fouled Monta as soon as the ball was inbounded and he ended up having to horsecollar him to get a fucking whistle blown. Shit was stupid.
