ekt_bear: Calderon's defense is atrocious. He also is not an aggressive, penetrating point guard. He is afraid of driving.
But he is offensively sound and a good passer of the ball he would get you at least 6 assists per game if he is provided with starter minutes

Duhon is good at nothing really. How is Duhon still in the league and Arenas playing in China? If only that cat showed more discipline

This Warriors team looks solid without Bogut for that matter

Nice to also see Rubio back.

Jose Calderon is a much better point guard than Chris Duhon.

Duhon is Garbage.

Somebody get Phil on the Phone, I am tired of Looking at D'Antoni's Face.

I guess the Basketball World Owes Stephon Marbury an Apology

Mike D'Antoni ruined his career....and in retrospect.. The guy was a garbage coach who only won a ton of games because of the Sublime Endlessly Immortal Steve Nash.

He sat him on the bench and would not even Play Him. Years ago when he still had a little game left.

His inability to get along with Players, and his Lack of being an adequate Defensive Tactician Makes this Guy's teams Horrible to watch without a Prime Nash.

Bring Back Phil, This Guy is a Terrible Coach.

Am surprised at the knicks,they have started the season well toping the eastern conference,melo is jst amazing and the lakers needs nash back
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:54am On Dec 20, 2012
Finally the loosing streak is Snapped, 40 points for the TRUTH..good game.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 11:42pm On Dec 20, 2012
KD Trey dumped 41! I think the Thunder have won 12 in a row or so. Durant's my MVP so far anyway

Knicks proving they still run NYC! Melo pouring in 31. Can't wait till the Christmas day games
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:02am On Dec 21, 2012
If only KD can improve his defense and work Harder to make his team mates better..despite these shortcomings i would pick him ahead of Queen James and Melo for the MVP thus far.
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:06am On Dec 21, 2012
Soo Happy to see Rubio back
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:12am On Dec 22, 2012
A frustrated Knicks team that was well defended and could not get their shots to fall tonight resorted to fighting, got chippy and of course Melo, Chandler and Coach Woodson were deservedly tossed out of the game...

Tough loss for the Celtics tonight.

I'm headed to the rockets/grizzlies game tonight smiley

The Bulls seem to have an answer to the Knicks. This is the 2nd time in quick succession. Good thing Amare is back to practicing Brewer might be a defensive expert but he offers next to nothing on offense

Clippers look like the form team at the moment. Largely average opponents but a W is a W

As for the Mavs smh. Dirk can't come back soon enough
Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 4:49pm On Dec 22, 2012
Shout out to the Twolves, for having an All White Starting Lineup and beating the Thunder, snapping their winning streak.

Twolves have a nice little collection of white ballers on that team

I believe 8 or 9 on the entire roster, and all 5 starters.

I like the Russian Kid Shved

I bet this All White T'Wolves Squad could beat TeamNigeria......

..If they can beat the Thunder....they Damn Sure could beat Nigeria. grin

If for any reason the Knicks meet the Bulls, they can forget that series, bulls play inside-outside, they are well rounded when it comes to defense, they are very physical, good post up play in Noah, Boozer( although i have my reservations about boozer) and Gibson, they are pretty good ball re bounders, i trust coach Tom to Woodson...

And i agree with u A-40, the Clippers are on a very good run, they are run LA...

I can't stop saying how bad i feel for coach Rick, his team is just depleted, I am worried Dirk might not say fit even after his return.

Some teams matchup better with others. The Bulls need Rose back to regain their contender status

Cuban just arranged an assortment of duds! Thankfully most of the deals are short-term. Its a transitional season from all appearances
Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 10:12pm On Dec 22, 2012
Yup, and Rubio not even 100% yet, He was awful that game

The Two Russians ...Shved and Andrei Kirilenko

Luke and Rubio Running the Point

JJ coming off the Bench

That Big Ugly Nikola Pekovic dude grabbing boards.....

...Love...

Man.

I think they would Blow out the Nigerian National Team by 40.

They gave OKC the Business
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 12:27am On Dec 23, 2012

The Dirk is backkkk, so glad for the dude, but am still worried its too late and he might struggle to remain healthy.

Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 12:19am On Dec 26, 2012

Too early to say that

They still look shaky and defence is still leaking grin
Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 10:22pm On Dec 26, 2012
Nah, we ain't back yet, But We Are Getting Better smiley

Ole Man Nash Still has a Few Tricks, even though his moves are in Super Slow Motion at this Stage.

I don't know how the defense would end up faring but the offense would flow much better. A lot more assists,ball movement,easy baskets and also less pressure on your transition D. As there would be less bad shots and fewer turnovers
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 11:32pm On Dec 27, 2012
Avery Johnson fired! There's rumors going round that D-Williams had a hand in this.

Ohh and the Lakers winning streak comes to an end
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:12am On Dec 28, 2012
I don't care how much the NETS hierarchy try to deny it, D- Williams has everything to do with this firing, he went to the media claiming to prefer the system he played while in Utah to Johnson's, days later the coach is fired!!! what's there not to see..

I think it's become his mantra, Jerry Sloan was forced to resign because of the same D- Williams when he was still coaching Utah..

Coach of the month for October/November, fired in December..
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:42am On Dec 28, 2012
Did Collison just make that bucket to force overtime!!! shocked shocked shocked shocked that was some shot right there.
Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 4:54am On Dec 28, 2012
Avery Johnson Was mad as hell.

Good.

Now i don't have to listen to that annoying asss voice anymore, during pre and post game conferences.

Dwill&C.Paul Both OverRated

All Part of Nba Marketing to promote them in a similar way to how Marbury and Iverson were Promoted Coming out together

Both Highly OverRated.

Haha I don't blame him tho its just sad to see how much he has depreciated since leaving the Mavs. He never quite recovered from the Golden State disaster

Lol I won't say overrated in the sense that no one is comparing them to AI. Marbury just had too much flash men don't think I was ever a fan

We've absolutely seen it before at Utah the worst part is he has actually been playing really poorly and poor as the Mavs have been I'm still glad he chose the Nets
