    And Charlotte's down 24-64 to the Thunder at half. Same ole Bobcats.
    They're still 7-5. Well about to be 7-6. That matches last season's win total. Has to amount to something

    Good game between Brooklyn and NY, no way the Pacers have a chance to beat those teams.
    Brook Lopez looks SO much better than he used to. There used to be a time when Roy owned Brook head to head, but now Book is easily the better player.

    I was going to say the same thing, Lopez has always been able to score more than Roy and Hibbert is still a better defender but overall Brook is better.

    It looks like Kyle Singler is playing well, I knew he was going to be decent but he is looking better than I thought.

    It's only been 12 games, but Andy Varejao's putting up 14/14/3 with 1.5 steals. He's not an All Star it's a travesty if he keeps this up.

    His numbers were really good last year before he got hurt, I think is going to be between him, Lopez and Chandler.

    I remember when people said that Ryan Anderson wasn't going to be able to keep up with his numbers because he didn't have Howard, the guy is shooting lights out and is having better numbers than the previous years while shooting a better percentage.

    I think you and me when damn near the only people saying he would be great in NOLA and signed a fair deal. Everyone else called him Murphy lite and way over paid.

    He's still Troy Murphy 2.0. He's not a good defender and he's a stretch 4.

    He's a better defender than Murphy by a mile.

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

    I don't see that Kstat, but if that's your opinion then OK. Just cracks me up that Vnzla is using really good stats to back up how "good" Ryan Anderson is when Murphy was pretty much the king of stats.

    The only thing Murphy and Ryan have in common is that they are white and must of their shots come from outside, Ryan is way better than Murphy, better defender, better rebounder(true rebounder), he can also score inside, hate him all you want but he is not Troy Murphy 2.0.

    By the way is Varejao making you eat crow yet? I remember you laughing at my suggestion of him been an all star in the beginning of the year.

    He won't be an all star on a team with 3 wins. You guys are all crazy to even suggest it.

    A 18 and 7 pf who scores 55% of his points from behind the 3 point line for a team that is currently 4-9? You guys are cracking me up right now. Seems to me I just described Troy Murphy 2.0. Anderson scores more of his points from outside the 3 point line, while rebounding less than Murphy did in his "prime" (yuck). Neither one of them fit a winning formula in the NBA unless they are coming off your bench a la Matt Bonner. So no, he is not worth 36 million dollars. Crazy talk. Anderson is averaging a hilarious .7 FTA per game. Yeah every team in the NBA needs a guy like him for $9 million per. Hilarious. If the Pacers went out and got him, the minute he put on a Pacers jersey you would be leading the march to burn him in effigy and I would be right beside you at that price point.

    EDIT: In his past 5 games, Anderson has shot two free throws. TWO! While the Hornets have gone 1-4. Every team in the NBA needs a guy like him...just too funny. Seriously, best thing I have read in a long while.

    what "winning formula"? You are talking as if shooting 3s is a bad thing. He takes good shots and makes them.
    Murphy's issue wasn't that he could hit 3s, but that he had serious defensive flaws and he didn't play fundamentally sound basketball in some other situations, like boxing out.
    The Lakers would kill right now to replace Pau Gasol with Ryan Anderson.
