    no it's not like that at all. i just remember you trying to clown on me back on SL cause i "hadn't brought up the celtics in like forever," but i toldyou i hadn't brought them up cause there was nothing to bring up. but i guess we're getting to that time of year....honestly you would know better than me living in boston. i just hear the media articles and residuals..think rondo is signing long term or do you think ainge deals him? i think jeff green is a guy they can keep for cheaper, but i just don't know if rondo is gonna be happy in another 3 years if we're struggling like this.

    f--- man, suns come back from a 17 point deficit and take the lead only to let it slip away.. They erased that deficit in like 6 minutes it was pretty crazy to watch... When they're clicking they're a top 3 offense no doubt

    The kings are playing well this year because cousins isnt acting a fool yet. If he plays to his potential they could have a decent season. I just wish my pacers were at least in the hunt our season ended after that d--- us game and the loss of head case lance Stephenson.

    i know this isn't the proper forum, but redsoxx what do you think about the redsoxx signing pablo to that deal?
    the kings are playing better because yea cousins is finally maturing...but he still put up these kinds of #'s in prior seasons so it's not like his on court play is drastically different. it helps having an ownership group that supports you and team USA helped him a lot. but i've said for a while he's arguably the best big man in the game. he still has things he needs to work on, but i'd take cousins over the majority of bigs every time. the guy can s---t, has soft hands and can pass, can dribble, and has a better low post game than howard. he also sacrifices himself and takes charges all the time. not to mention he's not a liability late in games cause he can s---t FT's.

    but the other big reason the kings are playing well is cause they got a guy who can run point. i like IT, but as suns fans are finding out he doesn't make your team better. IT needs to accept his role and has never been able to do that. collison distributes and runs the offense before thinking about his own offense, and yet he still scores between 16-20 pts a game. now IT averaged over 20, yet the kings are doing better than they ever did with him...go figure.

    i don't think they're a playoff team and have a lot of doubts about them, but they're improved for sure. they're honestly another legit player away from being talked about seriously.

    I think if the redsox want to over pay him its fine by us eventually we should move buster to third to save his legs and his bat so its not the end of the world...and i agree about the kings it was exciting to watch but isnt really a team player.

    Grizzlies 12-2. Best start we've had in a long time. Gasol going hard.

    @2shady4u well the suns had ish smith as their backup last year so IT has actually made their bench about 10x better...

    Jazz still showing strides of getting better. Need to play a full game and we'd have 3-4 more wins.

    Prob not playoff bound this year but by year end Utah will once again be loud and a tough place to play on the road in the NBA.

    The Lakers/Rockets game last week was awesome, every other game....not so much though. Still not sure how they blew that game against Denver on Sunday night, f---in choked in the 4th quarter and really should have won.

    Shannon Brown was cut, honestly hope the Lakers pick him up. Not sure if he's any good anymore but he's exciting at least.

    Good to have Nick Young back, although he's not doing as good as usual yet, kinda inconsistent.

    Ainge is probably gonna hold onto Rondo because we can and will probably offer him more then anyone and im not sure what they could get for him. Plus if they lose him then they are down to like bottom 5 in the league and certain to be bad for a long time Celtics are about to come into those Brooklyn picks, hopefully we end up getting one of them right because nobody is signing here until we become a fringe playoff team. Im not sure what happens with Green though, he has a 9 million dollar option for next year. So we'll see if he exercises that or looks for a bigger contract, which some other bottom dweller team might give him.

    I think its a lot but the years are what make me ok with it, Sox are a big market team and can eat that money if he falls off in the last couple years. Dodgers could probably take him off our chests too because god need someone to help them get it done in the playoffs. Sox also now have probably the best line up in baseball if Bogaerts and Castillo pan out the way ppl think. Sox just need to get their rotation in order and they have the trade pieces to do so. Plus still think they have a good chance to get Lester and will dump Cespedes, Victorino and possibly Napoli to free up money to do so.

    Their defense is improved this year which is their biggest advantage over last year, bench is also improved. But they've also had one of the easiest schedules so far with 9 of their 14 games being at home, and most against easy opponents. They also started out hot last year then cooled off.

    It also amazes me they went from having years of being the most injured team, to the last 2 years having almost no injuries. Jack, did they get a new training staff or something? Lol..

    Really frustrated with how my Bulls cant seem to stay healthy, but I honestly think we're the top contender in the East. Nobody's f---ing with us long as we stay healthy.

    i think that's true for the regular season, but i have no faith in rose. dude might get a hangnail and might miss a series.

    especially being in a weak conference the bulls will be fine getting into the playoffs, but with no legit star i just don't view them as post season contenders. i like what butler's done so far this year though.

    Lakers playing how they should tonight, good defense and a well balanced offense sharing the ball. Kobe's not forcing the issue so he'll be more ready to close out the game if it's close.

    VERY happy with their play in the 1st half, they should have beat Memphis the 1st time they played this season but had 2 horrible calls go against them late, hopefully they can beat them this time. Apparently they match up well with Memphis this year somehow lol, or else just happen to play well against them these 1st 2 times.

    Lin and Ed Davis both had a great 1st half, even Ronnie Price looked good for the 1st time all year.

    Lakers again choke away the game, they really should have 3-4 more wins than they do but they've been an awful 4th quarter team and tonight it started in the 3rd quarter too.

    Kobe surprisingly has not been clutch either, had 2 awful plays near the end tonight. But honestly the loss was a team effort tonight lol, everyone fell apart in the 2nd half.

    Oh well, good for their draft pick chances next year but still, I want to see some more wins. That's twice they should have beat Memphis but lost both.

    Kobe has it in his head that he HAS to be the guy to take the last shot.. I don't think he's that guy anymore. He's made some straight up awful plays in crunch time this year.
