    @MikeWellsNBA: The Pacers aren't helping themselves out offensively. They're last in the league in assists at 18 a game. Steve Nash is averaging 11 a game

    Dragic is averaging 13 while starting the last 6 games. You know, Nash's former backup.

    I'm pretty sure this guy knows more than anybody here.


    @HowardBeckNYT: Wait, JJ Hickson has been waived? The guy the Cavaliers wouldn't trade for Amare Stoudemire in 2010? Yikes.

    Our team needs to watch the Bulls' passing, esp. on the fastbreak.

    FWIW, I'm almost positive the Mavericks have one of these on site as well.
    Actually, I don't think they do. I believe they made it popular, but I don't think they own one. The players go to a place after the games to use one, but I am fairly certain they don't actually own one.

    after watching stoudemire play a couple of times this week, cleveland should be glad it didn't work. they could be having that contract clogging up their cap space, instead of new york.
    Getting Amare could had probably change Lebron's decision and stay, I'm pretty sure Cleveland pays Amare's salary with no problem.

    Chicago beats Orlando
    85-59

    Yes Orlando doesn't even score 60. Would love to know what Dwight's thinking right now staying there another year. Thanks Chicago... we're now behind Orlando by two games with the same number of losses.

    no, it wouldn't. LBJ was headed to play with his friends. getting stoudemire would only mean more crap left behind for the cav's to clean up.

    I guess we would never know, Amare was also a free agent so I don't think he signs with Cleveland if Lebron doesn't do it.

    @WallaceNBA_ESPN: For record, Lucas III has been cut by Minny, Houston, OKC, Miami & Chi before getting 2nd shot w/current team, like Lin

    The ball is in Phoenix's court. The Suns are mulling whether the financial relief provided by Ilgauskas' $12 million contract and the young and talented Hickson are enough for them to part with Stoudemire.

    Pathetic fans who don't know what's better for them.

    These fans were perfectly comfortable with 35 win seasons year after year. Now an owner does something that's actually good for the team in the long run to make them better but they can't understand it because they had to trade away their fan favorite to do it. It's like a parent throwing away a kid's security blanket because they know the kid needs to grow up, and of course the kid cries because he doesn't know what's better for them.

    These low expectations fans are a big reason the team they've watched has been so bad for so long. Really embarrassed to be a Warrior fan right now. These people are a disgrace.

    @jmikeNBAusat: RT @Rusty_SFChron: Warriors owner Joe Lacob gets booed as he takes the mic for Mullin's jersey retirement. Chants of Monta start


    @jmikeNBAusat: RT @Rusty_SFChron: Lacob finally gets through his speech & gives Mullin's family a trip to Maui. ...

    @jmikeNBAusat: #GSwarriors were 3 games of the 8th playoff spot and they're clearly ticked at Lacob for blowing it up w/Ellis trade #nba


    @jmikeNBAusat: I was truly shocked at #GSWarriors trade for that reason, but man, even I underestimated the bitterness of those fans #nba



    @jmikeNBAusat: If that trade doesn't pay off for #GSwarriors -- and I have my doubts b/c of Bogut's health -- Lacob is gonna get that treatment often #nba

    LOL @ these idiot fans who once gave Monta MVP chants when their season was already over. Truly embarrassing.

    Monta is fun to watch and all but they aren't going to ever win anything with him and Steph as the starting back court. They need to switch to a defensive minded team. I mean shoot even run TMC didn't win anything because they didnt have a C and they didn't really defend.


    I like what they are doing I really like Klay Thompson(one of the nicest strokes in college ball last year) and if Steph every gets healthy and they draft well next year they could have a great core as soon as next year. I didnt like the Jefferson trade or not amnesty a different player not Bell. I just think they way overpaid for that pick. The going rate for a 1st rd pick is a few million. They gave up 11m plus the roster spot on Jefferson that was overpaying IMO but you can live with that deal as long as they draft well but that move is the only one that really had me shaking my head.


    I think the way Klay plays will really be a nice style and help the team win more than a Monta. Klay moves the ball and plays a very good team style of basketball that reminds me of a young Richard Hamilton or in that mold I really like his game.


    But the top 7 pick and their core growing with staying healthy they will be a really nice team next year.(if they draft well)

    I don't know to me that trade is similar to Toronto trading for a broken down JO, Toronto probably is still regretting that trade.
