    46 on 25 shots, my goodness he is destroying since WB went down. Just daggers after he tied the game
    He's definitely on fire, just "smoking" hot. OKC is "blowing" them away now. You know Durant knows how to light it up.

    Rudy Gay had 41 on 25 shots. Impressive Cousins stat line is just as impressive if not more. I will try to go back and watch that game if I get any free time.

    Durant has been better than LeBron this year. No vote boredom needed, if this keeps up, Durant has definitely been the best player in the league.

    The MVP definitely belongs to Durant this year. Hats off to him for keeping that team at the top without Westbrook. The Thunder are lucky that Mr. October was able to step into Westbrook's starting spot and play good ball.

    Hopefully Westbrook and CP3 come back good and healthy. The Western playoffs were extremely weak last year, but they should be much better this year if everyone is healthy.

    Thunder's defense is really good. And they have done a great job drafting and acquiring young guys who have played well

    I thought this was interesting I know we don't have this issue in Indy but it would probably be like this if we did

    http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.c...etary-formula/

    Celebrity seating at Knicks games determined by ‘mysterious proprietary formula’



    Spike Lee sits courtside and Woody Allen isn’t invited to the VIP lounge.

    That much is known.

    Otherwise, how the New York Knicks – and other teams in major markets – handle the celebrities at their games is mostly a mystery.

    Sarah Lyall of The New York Times peaked behind the curtain at Madison Square Garden and better explains how it works in New York:

    The Garden, it turns out, has an ad-hoc celebrity-handling team whose members determine who in fact counts as a celebrity and to what degree; pursue relationships with those people (or their representatives); and deflect demands from lower-level personalities who wish they were celebrities but in fact are not. On game nights, the team also has to contend with such tricky questions as, is Katie Holmes more important than Liam Neeson? And, when you have two rappers with the same last name — Mike D. from the Beastie Boys and Chuck D. from Public Enemy — should you seat them near each other?

    At the recent Knicks-Heat game, the answers could be found, as is so often the case, on an Excel spreadsheet. Entitled “VIP Locations” and organized according to some mysterious proprietary formula, it mapped out exactly who would sit where — John McEnroe in the third row, the boxer Miguel Cotto in the fifth row, a gaggle of New York Rangers in the 17th row — and it reflected various unspoken rules of V.I.P. placement.

    Make sure they all have decent seats. Make sure that some, but not all, end up sitting with other celebrities. Make sure to put the most important people in Celebrity Row — this calculation is “based on the A-level nature” of those celebrities, Mr. Watkins said — while not hurting the feelings of the people whose level hovers down at the sad end of the alphabet.

    If only the Knicks applied such analytically guided care to constructing their roster.

    No need to re-hash that mess at the moment, though. If you’re interested in what the Knicks offer – and expect of – their celebrities, read Lyall’s full piece to get a taste.

    LeBron has been bad on defense this year. The whole Heat team has not been dialed in.

    Thats because hes having to carry more of a load offensively. Same reason they hide Durant on D. He can't do both

    Skip Bayless agrees with you:

    Right now I'd give Paul George slight edge in MVP race over LeBron, Durant. Pacers have NBA's best record.

    Just pointing out that his argument is invalid if LeBron hasn't been any better.

    No particular wish to open an old can of worms, but I find it interesting that this argument seems acceptable when applied to LBJ or Durant but was not acceptable when used to explain that no, Granger was not a horrible or lazy defender all those years.

    Not really fair to compare them. Because even though James is struggling he is still guarding the teams best player. The Heat can hide him on defense like the Thunder do Durant.

    So James is being forced to still try to carry the load offensively, but to conserve energy on the defensive end. Basically he isn't able to do either as well as he can

    If the Heat had somebody else to put on other teams best defenders James would look just as good as Durant if need be. And if the Heat had Wade at 100% Lebron would be right back to his old self on defense.

    Lebron doesn't have any really help on either side of the ball at this point. Durant at least has some breathing room on D

    Seems like LeBron has not been guarding the teams best player as much this year.
