    I'm all in on the Nets as my adopted second NBA team close to where I actually live. Just love the vibe around that organization right now. They look like they're having fun and the whole experience looks fun. I'm definitely going to go catch some of their games next month.
    They are hip. It's Brooklyn. Brooklyn is cool as ****. Ergo, the Nets are now cool. Judging by your Frank Ocean avatar, you gravitate towards hip at least a little. I approve. The evolution of the Nets and their fanbase is going to be very interesting. I like it.

    Blatche played very well this preseason. 23min last night 16pts 8boards 2dimes 2steals 1block...just 1 TO.

    I may be in the minority, but I really felt the Pacers should have picked this guy up. He's making as much as Lance. He's in a situation just like Green was. Green and the rest of our guys could have mentored him. Plus, he'd be the main backup PF on this squad in no time. Seriously, Hans and Pends as the main backup PFs? That will be one of the weakest spots for us...and heaven help us if West gets injured.

    We've danced with the crazy devil one too many times for my liking. The guy has undeniable talent--but he's also a bonehead and could disrupt the harmony in our locker room that was so good last season. I'll pass all day on that.

    Anyone that thinks Pierce isn't going to be a problem is kidding themselves. However, the question is how many minutes he has to log to get the Celtics into the playoffs with home court.

    If he has to log a lot of minutes to keep Boston in the top 8 in the East, it'll be interesting to see how he plays in the second round of the playoffs (Obviously making a ton of assumptions here).

    He's looked old for a few years. He is old. But the dude is still a baller. He is crafty as hell.

    He looks in better shape than last year and the year before I think, he is moving better.

    It'll be interesting to see if not dealing with the lockout issues helps older players, like Pierce.

    I was JUST about to get on here and say "this is for Sparhawk" lol

    Blatche has been playing out of his mind this pre season. Is in shape and playing hard. I know it's early but if he keeps this up its like having a bonafide starting PF coming off their bench.
    I really have no idea why I signed my name on that. hahaha I was at work, so I must have been back and forth from this site and writing emails. Sign, sealed and delivered.

    Even without Blatche, I'm mostly happy about our squad. Outside Hans and the blown pick with Plumlee (who is starting to grow on me), I really dig everyone on this team.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Another good game from Drummond again must say i will be kinda jealous in the next few years Monroe and Drummond will be one hell of a frontcourt.

    I could watch Monroe throw high post lobs to Drummond all game long....

    Those two were born to play together. Frank is killing me by keeping the duo under wraps almost all preseason.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    At what point does the risk outweigh the reward? Especially for a player on a non-guaranteed/partially guaranteed contract. The second he acts up, we cut him, waive him, or just don't have him come back. It bears zero harm to our salary cap, and if he turns out to play well, we are paying pennies to a really talented player.

    The only effort Andray Blatche put into the last few seasons was to see how blatantly he could act like he didn't give a ****.

    But in his defense, he was fantastic at it.

    Eric Maynor had a real nice game too. If DJ is traded before the deadline or doesn't resign, I'd def like to get Reggie Jackson or Maynor from OKC.

    Kevin Love just broke his hand. He'll be out for 6-8 weeks! I feel bad for T-Wolves fans out there.

    They can't catch any good luck. When is Rubio supposed to be back? It will be tough for them to overcome this I think.

    I'm not surprised.

    Watching him at Uconn, he clearly had a lot of talent, he was just raw and didn't develop well in that one year he had, which I think slipped his draft position.

    He is quite athletic and has very good reflexes and good hands - just not goofy, and usually big guys are. But he used to be able to steal the ball from guards, which is unusual for someone his size. (I don't expect he'll be able to do that in the NBA, but it's likely to be part of his defense against post players who try to dribble.) He just lacks fundamentals. With his talent, a team will work with him on that.

    Valanciunas is just awesome. I hope he stays healthy, he plays kind of reckless for a big.

    wow. whoever's not watching, should check youtube later for Valanciunas move and dunk on Okafor. It'll probably be there.

    Lowry's back, btw. The Raptors look good. Although Nash-Valanciunas combo would've been fun...

    Okafor is getting revenge on Valanciunas. Oh well.

    Dwayne Casey seems like a ridiculous upgrade over Toronto's previous coach. Bargnani defends. No more screens for DeRozan at 20 ft and he's not being developed into a Kobe anymore, just cuts and muscles inside. DeRozan might actually amount to something now, especially if he starts to defend.

    Same here... they've had some nice draft luck the past few years with Monroe, Knight, and Drummond all falling to their picks. Guys who were top rated prospects out of high school, at the 7th, 8th, and 9th picks. Nice value.

    I won't be surprised if the Jazz win 50+ this year. That's what i call smashmouth basketball. and they have a ton of athleticism too.

    'my oh my':




    and here's the Valanciunas move on Okafor from earlier today:
