That Napier cross on D-Will was nasty. No Dubs game until Friday.
Unibrow vs. Boogie tonight is a must watch.

raptors stomp the bucks then come into cleveland and come back to win a dominant one after starting the game losing 15-0. (i missed the start but i was told it was 15-0 not sure if thats accurate or not). If it wasn't for a couple bad games against the heat and bulls we'd be undefeated.
edit: not to mention derozan has been playing like ass. if he starts taking better shots and stops trying to be kobe we'll be even better

Jones and Dwight out indefinitely. We've played fine without them and even beat Dallas the night before but tough to keep playing well with such poor depth in the West.

It's gonna be a hard season for Knicks fans (one more) but we had to expect that. It's gonna take a long time to get used to the triangle, maybe the whole year. Besides we definitely need better players.
We could have done better than what we've done though. My first two problems with that team are Melo and JR. Yes cause, even if I agree that Melo needs more help, he's no stranger to the situation we're in, just like he wasn't last year. Honestly he tends to rely too much on his jump shot, I would like to see him attack the rim more often, it's just outrageous that he doesn't do it more often. He's the first reason why we don't shoot more free throws.
Then JR should be smarter. Honestly JR is one of the best passer of the league, but he doesn't use that weapon often enough. He usually (like Melo) relies too often on his jump shots and takes crazy shots, whereas he could make his teammates much better. And I just can't stand that.
There's a problem with Amaré too, cause he will never gets back to the level he used to play at, and will never as well (despite what he's saying) be a good defender.
So honestly, as long as we don't get rid of both JR and Stoudemire, to get quality players, we will never achieve anything. It is just as simple as that. But at least I hope we will get used to the triangle as quick as possible, that is our only goal this season.
As for the Sixers, I 100% agree with Jeff Van Gundy, this debate is ludicrous and Bledsoe got what he deserved, it is just disrespectful to how good the NBA is to say that Kentucky would beat the 76rs in a 7 game series, the NBA is BY FAR the best league in the world (I've always said that the best basketball tournament in the world is the NBA playoffs (yes better than the March Madness no matter what lotsa other people might say...) and BY FAR !!!!) The Sixers would destroy any College team any time, end of story.

When Fisher was chosen to be our new next coach, I was at first a bit disappointed, cause he's a rookie coach... But then I thought about it and got some confidence in this move, cause Phil chose him, and he played for Phil and knows all about the triangle.
But let's face it, he is a rookie coach and definitely acts like one... Honestly all those rotations changes are killing us, and it's gotta right now. I know he said that no player is really better than the others, but still there are some obvious things that I don't understand.
First of all, about our starting 5, Melo and Calderon are obvious starters, and I'm glad that they alwlays start. The starting SG has to be Shump (if JR took clever shots, attacked the rim more often, and passed the ball more it would be a different story, especially since Shump's last struggles, but it is not, so Iman has to start due to his defensive abilities).
Stat has to start too. As I already said he will not get back to the player he used to be, but he seems to be healthy this year for a change, and Fish just gotta give him more minutes, he's the only one of our bigs who can score inside the paint. Then it's between Dalembert and Acy. Both players are very good defensively but I'd personally give the edge to Acy due to his unbelievable energy (he's the only true hustler we got) and he has a more efficient jump shot than Samuel. Although I ain't sure about it cause Dalembert is the best defender we got inside. One thing I know about both players should have more playing time than Jason Smith who has only his jump shot offensively and his size defensively... I still don't understant why he was still on the court at the end of the Blazers game, I would have had Dalembert on Aldrige at this point and was just getting crazy before my TV screen...
Then I don't understand why Fish uses more Larkin than Prigioni in some games... I love Larkin, but the fact is that he's an unfinished product, and still makes a lot of rookie mistakes, while both Calderon and Prigioni are two proven professionals. Besides the ball moves clearly better when Prigioni is on court, and he is definitely our smartest player. I was already getting crazy at times during the Woodson years because he didn't use Prigioni enough but it's even worse this year... Pablo is our backup PG, END OF STORY !!!!
We don't have a team that can achieve great things, that's for sure, but we could do better than what we've done so far, there is no doubt about it in my mind, and if the players are to blame for that (attack the rim Melo, you're one of the strongest players in the game right now, ATTACK THE GODDAM RIM !!), the coach, Fisher, is definitely to blame for that as well.

I'm really happy for Qunicy Acy making a name for himself in the NBA. He was a questionable pick a few years back and didn't offer a whole lot when he was first drafted. Not to mention he is very undersized for the PF position at 6'8. But he's a great guy and he plays every game like its his last and he has really improved his game a lot since being drafted. I hope he continues to get minutes in the NBA and has a solid career.

Boy, Coach Pop's "gimme a break, will you" during Spurs - Lakers Friday night was cold lol... Guttierrez got Popped like no one else got popped before.
He should have expected that though. When Pop's answer to your question is to call his team "pitiless" repeatedly, furthermore in an aggressive tone, you don't want to ask him a second question. Especially a stupid one like this...
Well he got what he deserved, I guess.
This Spurs-Lakers was surprisingly very good BTW. Didn't expect that. And I love JVG's idea about keeping the players in a cage during replays lol... that's why he's the best !!
So it seems that the refs call a time out when you don't ask one, and don't call any when you do ask for one now... Funny. Those who watched Warriors-Mavs yesterday and Knicks-Nets earlier this month will understand.
The Knicks finally won one game... I still can't believe it actually happened. It was against a team which is as bad as we are though... I mean it was the first time I watched the C's this year and let's just say I won't watch them again, except the three other games we will play against them of course.
Anyway let's see if we can win a second game in a row, at least once this year... Against the Raptors without a Shump though, so it's doubtful... Even if Shump just played like trash those past weeks, especially offensively, so we're not gonna miss much those next 3 weeks I guess. But then again who's played well for us this year so far ?
I hope Rodman was joking about his comments on Kerr, otherwise I heavily disagree with him (but I'm sure he was), but it's hard not to agree with him about the Knicks... I loved Fish's answer to his comments though. Always in control, always keeping calm. That's what leaders do.

16 in a row feels good. So does 21-2. But I don't expect Golden State to win in Memphis. Struggles against them and on the road without David Lee (again).
Congrats to Kobe. Been a pleasure to watch him growing up and it'll be a sad day when he decides to retire.

Dame took a fat dump on the Spurs last night. Sucks I missed the game cause I was at a party but wow...I picked the wrong game to miss.
