Monta for Hall of Fame
I don't know that it's a good mentality. Confidence is good, but I wouldn't want a player thinking he already "has it all", especially when he's as flawed as Monta.
He might especially want to take a better look at Wade and his shot selection / decision making / defense. I'm like Wade, I'm shooting inside outside.
Clippers is feeling it. They will be tested against the spurs, lakers, miami.
Popeye Jones's son is in the running for the #1 pick in the draft.
The NHL draft. For real.
Old news. He's been a high school hockey phenom for a long time now.
It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

Anyone else think that there is going to be a major shakeup with the Celtics sometime soon?
I know that it's been a huge west coast but this year's version of the Celtics are struggling.
I wouldn't be surprised if Doc is either let go or KG and/or Pierce isn't traded before the deadline.
Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
I think Doc is very safe, but they need some moves, they have a flawed roster. They need to get a defensive big, especially a backup center. A healthy Bradley would also help.They started last season 15-17 and then turned it around. With some luck, I think they could do it again.
The Rockets are close to signing Patrick Beverley. The Rockets do not have an available open spot so they will probably cut a player. They have some interesting pieces.
Beverley could be good for our back up PG spot. I don't think that this can happen, though
I'm not too worried about not hearing anything, though. If they are searching for anything it's better that it stays inside closed doors. You don't want your team to know that you're going to replace them.
KG's got a Kobe Bryant no trade clause, so he's protected from Ainge's wrath. Pierce doesn't, and Ainge doesn't appreciate him. He'd trade him to Washington if he felt it'd make the team better.
I wonder what the asking price would be for Kirilenko. His defense and all-around game would be a huge boost for this team.
My guess is Walsh isn't going to make any trades b4 the trade deadline and hope everything works out ok. Sorta like Bird did with re-signing Foster last season thinking Foster could play with only picking up an injured Pendergraph and journeyman Lou.
My point is Bird counted on an often injured Foster which didn't work out, and Walsh will just take a wait and see approach hoping not to have a PG problem any worse than it already is. When Granger returns Lance can be the b/u PG off the bench, so no reason to make a move. That could work as long as neither Hill nor Lance gets injured. I'd prefer to be prepared for a possible injury and not wait to see if one happens. The Pacers need a quality b/u PG now not waiting around 4-6 weeks until Granger returns so Lance can be the b/u PG.
Or maybe we don't hear/read about everything teams do.
Anyone else see Vucevic's numbers tonight? 13 points 16 rebounds AT THE HALF against the Heat.
Change is neither good or bad, it simply is.
