  • KD is on another planet right now. Really impressive to watch, for all fans of the game, not just Thunder fans.

    The Knicks....wow. I WANT to like Melo, but I just can't. And JR Smith is a punk. the East in general is a mess tho. Who do you think makes it out of that dumpster fire, Heat or Pacers? Heart says Pacers, mind says Heat.

  • With the way Wade looks, I'd say Pacers.

    That series went to the wire last year WITH Wade, without Wade and a decent/solid threat in the middle I can see the Pacers going to the finals, but the Heat do have the great equilizer of this era in LeBron, soo it could go to the Heat as well, but on paper I'd say the Pacers.

    I would like to point out that at this moment one of my picks for sleeper in the east right now is in the running for 6th seed, the Wizards! Anyone catch that block John Wall had on Stephen Curry the other night?

  • It's hard to bet against Lebron regardless of how his team looks around him. His game 6 against the Celtics in Boston a few years ago to force a game 7 was unbelievable. Pacers have to be the on paper favorites though. Solid defense, grown together over the years, playoff experience as a unit, bunch of real good players.

    It's crazy how hot the 76ers were to start the year and now are back to the basement. I thought they'd be a sleeper 4-5 seed in the East with how MCW was playing at the time.

    I think the Wizards make a push after the allstar break.... John Wall is playing some great ball. The East tournament will come down to the Pacers vs Heat though IMO. No other teams really stand a chance unless Melo can take over a whole series.

    I really don't like the NBA much anymore though. The NCAA tourney is 100x more exciting for me nowadays.

    Never liked Stern's tyrannical reign. I hope the new can be more of promoter dedicated to the fans than trying to build personal glory. This infighting over teams has to stop. The NBA has to have a wide open expansion with a revision of the NBA policy to accept anyone with one year of college. The minimum should a college degree or 4 years. This then stregthens the college game too. To me the NCAA mens basketball is unwatchable with status quo. Then the pros can feild better rookies too. The Oden fiasco never happens if he has to play longer in the junior league. If there are more teams in the league tham actual basket ball will become more important than the acquisition of NBA stars. If the somebody has an idea to deemphasize this I would be totally on board. The cap is not working. The last 10 years minimum the champs have purchased their championships in free agency. How lopsided and boring is that?

  • I'm way on the other end other end of the spectrum of making these kids go to college, making 'em stay already got thrown out when Xavier McDaniel and his attorneys beat David Stern (when he was an attorney) to let McDaniel join the Sonics when he was only 18. The league started the NBDL for a reason, smart teams use these teams to develop the talent. Look at Jeremy Lamb in OKC, he spent some time in the D-League. I don't like the idea of an age limit at all, it hurts these NCAA programs most of all. Let the players that don't want to be in college and feel they're good enough go to the NBA, and if the team that drafted 'em feels like they need more time, they're assigned these NBDL teams for a reason. The NBA drafting process has always been a huge hit and miss scenario.

    As for the salary cap, I think something should be done. But a lot of these teams have the 3 main guys they paid the major dollars to like always, its the other guys like the Ray Allens and such that go to these teams on a discount or league minimum towards the end of their careers to get these rings. But as the sport grows the demand in money from these players is going to get higher, thankfully revenue streams are going to be a whole lot better in this CBA to allow these teams to function in a proper manner meaning that they too can get the big name guys, it'd be a lot better if these owners could open their pockets like the NFL does to get players, but NBA owners rarely actually see any money enter their pockets from owning an NBA franchise, its why NBA franchises are sold for the hundreds of millions as opposed to the NFL and MLB franchises that are sold for BILLIONS.

    I'm hopeful of Adam Silver though as a guy who wants the NBA product back in Seattle, I really really really miss it, I know some here don't but whatevz, thats their thing. People say he's in favor of bigger markets, Seattle's is a rapidly growing market and the Seahawks being at eternities door step is helping Seattle be more visual. I think he'll be a fine commish.

  • The only reason Stern didn't bring a team back here is he didn't want to admit a mistake was made. I also thought that Chris Hansen's arena deal was just a little too sweet for the city for Stern to like it. He wants municipalities to pay for the arenas.

    Stephenson has been fun to watch although I haven't seen many games. I play fantasy hoops so I keep up with things but watching games has been hard. The East is so difficult to watch anyways. Teams like Charlotte are in the playoffs right now and they are just garbage. Can we fast forward to the ECF already?

    Hearing the Milwaukee Bucks are very VERY close to being sold pending league approval. Might be done already. PS: Not to the Seattle guys.


    God dammit. Seriously, I have no affiliation to the Sonics, but every month that goes by where there are teams in Milwaukee and Charlotte and not Seattle is a bloody joke.

    Off last tweet: the NBA has been helping Herb Kohl quietly shop the Bucks around w/o letting it turn into a stay-or-leave soap opera.

  • On a more positive note, how about them Raps baby!

    Cannot wait for the playoffs (need to start posting more NBA here as can never find good places to chat NBA). Personally am hoping the East playoffs set up something like 1. Heat 2. Pacers 3. Raptors 4/5. Bulls, Nets 6/7. Wiz/'Cats. This way the Dinos can avoid the Bulls and Nets and round one as well as the Heat in round 2.

    See, I have no issue with that, they're putting the ball in the City of Milwaukee's court to get an arena deal done. If we in Seattle are rooting for the Bucks to move here, we just need Milwaukee to continue to sit on their hands. The NBA is not bluffing, if they can take the Sonics out of Seattle, they damn sure as hell would take the Bucks out of Milwaukee.
