    Default USA Qualifying Scrimmage On Now

    Just saw it...pretty entertaining.

    It's on Fox Sports. I'm in New York, but I imagine yall carrier has it too.

    56 - 49 at the half. JKidd and Bron on one side and Kobe and Durant on the other have been doing work since I started watching.

    Not only that, but as usual it was geared towards the wrong demographic. It ain't the NBA or anything, but why can't professional basketball in any form start catering to their actual fanbase in terms of halftime shows, opening music, etc.?

    Two Things:

    1) Even with all the praise he gets, Jason Kidd is still underrated.

    2) Bold Prediction: Barring injury, Deron Williams will be a Hall of Famer.

    The 2nd half has been a chuckfest. However, I love chucking so it's still entertaining.

    SICK block by The Chosen One. SICK pass by JKidd to Bron for the kick-out to Mikey Miller. SICK put-back dunk by Durant.

    (Also...Kobe looks mad skinny. He said he's been training hard all summer...maybe he's tryna get even quicker.

    Kidd has always been underrated. He's one of my alltime favorites.


    Ah, Durrant looks great to me - wow, first I've seen him play and he's going to be a special player - soon

    Yup, he looks comfortable already and his arsenal is crazy.

    Why the hell is JJ Redick actually being considered for this team? The dude is terrible.

    Redick just doesn't look like he's in the same class as the other players.

    If you love basketball, I think he has to be.

    That spin move, fadaway hook shot was absurd. This kid has EVERYTHING. Also picked some PG's (Billups?) pocket on the proverbial, "poke-away the crossover and pick it up behind the dribbler" move.

    Redd is making way too many mistakes to make this team, especially if Mike Miller continues shooting the way he is.

    I'd take Redd before Miller any day. I'm still trying to figure out why he was in the game.

    Just scoring with ease over the likes of Battier and Prince. Pretty much what he did in college, just against real competition. It was very impressive, he just looked natural out there, which was kind of jarring after his poor play in the summer league. Which, again, shows you just how worthless summer league is.

    Wow. What a summer game that was. Loved the intensity. The difference between Kobe and LeBron was on display during the final 10 seconds.

    My 5 cuts would be:
    1. Redick (obvious)
    2. Chandler (Bosh, STAT, and Howard are enough)
    3. Prince (Battier gets the nod)
    4. Hinrich (either him or Billups is the odd PG out)
    5. Redd (Miller is a better spot-up shooter)

    *Durant is good enough to contribute on this team.

    This game was far and away better than the All-Star Game.

    Durant is going to be the best player coming out of this year's draft by far. Put him on the squad, the kid can definitely compete.

    Love him or hate him, Kobe showed everyone why he is the best player on the planet right now. Lebron who? That's right King James, as good as you are those last 10 seconds defined why you aren't even in Bryant's league. Maybe in another 3-4 years.

    That was the first time I'd seen him play, and I was blown away by Durant. So smooth, so confident.

    He's going to get overpowered his first couple of years defensively, but his offense is already NBA-ready.

    I only saw the second half of the game - I had no idea it was on TV or even being played - but it was a really good game - maybe I was just starved for a little basketball.

    Did anyone else feel like I did. I figured Kobe would take the last second shot for his team and I figured Lebron would take the last second shot for his team - and I figured Kobe would make his and LeBron would not.

    Best thing I can say about Durant is two things. I can't wait to watch him again - he will increase attendance where ever he plays this season. (Oden will too especially here in Indiana). Durant looked like a guy who has been in the NBA 4 or 5 years - not a guy who is 20 years old. Granted I didn't get a chance to really see his defense, or passing, or team defense - so I'm sure the more I watch him the more I'll see his flaws. But he has gifts you cannot teach

    Welcome to the world of Kevin Durant and why at least five teams tanked to get him as a consolation prize.
