    I'm glad because I'm hoping the Bulls aren't as good as they could be. The heat will obviously be good but if the bulls aren't for so e reason that'll help up out a ton.

    I have Dwight Howard, Dirk Nowitzki, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul on my fantasy team. My team would be out of this world if I were playing fantasy in the 08-09 season.

    Hey Bulls, you've got Lebron at 11 points and Wade at 6 and you lose by 20?

    I hate the Heat....but I respect that they've been on top of the mountain for multiple seasons and have earned the right to be cocky. Rose OTOH acts like he commands the respect of a back to back champ every time he opens his mouth. Plus I despise their scum fans that invade the Fieldhouse. For me, it's easy. As much as I dislike the Heat, I still enjoy seeing them give a beat down to Chicago. I rooted for the Heat against Chicago in the 2011 ECF's and continue to do so every time these teams face off.

    Wade does look healthy, for the first time in years it seems.

    So Xavier Henry is finally going to live up to his potential?

    Also...are we sure Blake Griffin is a top level NBA player? I'm just not sure he's all that great.

    One reason why I don't think the Clippers can win the championship this year is because I don't think they're going to be good enough on offense in the half-court... JJ Redick is really going to help them there because he's so smart as a passer and moving without the ball.... but other than that I still think they're going to struggle in half-court sets. Also, I think they should consider starting Matt Barnes over Jared Dudley to give their starting 5 a little more defensive help. Blake is a very mediocre defender and DeAndre Jordan doesn't do anything well defensively except when he gets the block.

    I forgot Wesley Johnson was on the Lakers too, Henry and him were both guys with huge potential it sucks that they haven't been able to reach it.

    They didnt even lose Howard he is still an assistant coach (basically what he was last year )


    Johnson and Henry both fit the Mike D system. They are both pretty bad players no handles and so passive. Henry dribbles it off his foot if he even looks right

    I agree entirely. I think he's way overrated due to dunking and being in LA. Doesn't take much more than being able to jump high and play there to suddenly become a superstar. Ya, he's a good player, but not elite by any means. He an average level "star" to me.

    He's not good on defense, he is a pretty bad free throw shooter, he turns it over a fair amount...just not wild about him. Or the Clippers for that matter. When your starting frontline plays defense at the clip of Jordan/Griffin and can't hit their free throws on the other end--that's a problem.

    Im starting to think that the Lakers acquired Kaman and Ryan Kelly in order to increase Pau Gasol's self esteem. The dude seriously looks like Antonio Banderas sitting between those two.

    Id be way more impressed with the Samsung Galaxy Note watch if it had...say...the ******* time remaining in the quarter of the TNT Overtime games. Seriously, how much is someone getting paid to neglect something so simple, yet very important, as the game clock when designing these websites?

    I said early on in the piece for us to give him a shot now we have old man rasual when we could have had a young guy with some upside.
