    Danilo Gallanari has missed so many games, it seems after all this time Knicks and Nuggets have ended up being the same state of badness after the trade. At least Nuggets have a picks to improve.

    So apparently Tony Kornheiser said that PG's 360 the other night was not impressive and not very hard to do.

    On another note, everybody's favorite people over on First Take were really talking us up once again today.

    Definitely the latter. I can't tell if it's a flop from that video, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were. I don't like the fact that Lance is getting fined for a "flop" that had no impact on the play at all. If the refs don't call it, and it's not an egregious violation, does it really need to cost him five thousand? If it weren't Lance, would this have been an issue at all? I don't think so. I think he's being targeted for whatever reason.

    Honesty, I do not blame them for giving him a fine for flopping. I re-watched the play...I think that Lance was dribbling fast enough that when he ran into Curry that it does warrant some reaction from Lance....but Lance's reaction after running into Curry IMHO does look like he was trying to "sell" he collision as something worse than it really was.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Im glad they called him out on it, I like how lance plays but when he's doing those things it seems like it takes the focus off winning vs trying to get a call. I don't want the pacers way of "winning" to be talked about lances flopping which is does a bit of.

    But then I hate it due to watching other games where it's the same plays and they aren't even being warned about flopping.

    I think Lance definitely sold it.

    But you CAN clearly see Klay Thompson push off chest high into Lance.

    Enough to knock Lance over, possibly. Enough to knock him over THAT emphatically, no.

    I don't like it when anyone flops. LeBron, Lance, anyone. But it's VERY obvious that the NBA is protecting LBJ from these warnings and fines, because if they were calling these evenly and fairly, LBJ would have dozens of fines by now.

    That being said, I hope Lance knocks it off.

    For whatever reason?? Oh i think we know what the reason is...some of us have been alluding to that very reason and showing some concerns that this sort of thing was going to evolve...

    Even Skip Bayless is pretty big on us nowadays.

    Kornheiser is probably the last person on earth who can't give the Pacers any credit. It's probably because he is a Knicks fan who is still bent over last year's humiliation.

    He was trying to go for an offensive rebound in the 4th quarter, Thompson face guarded him might have pushed him but lance exaggerated it and ended up sitting on the ground. It was a good flop call out

    I'm still convinced Kornheiser hasn't even watched a Pacers game in the last 5 years.

    Celtics might be looking to trade Jeff Green according to Real GM. I think we should seriously look into getting him. He'd be awesome off the bench with Scola, Danny, CJ, and the rest.

    Salary cap. Luxury tax. You do not understand. Stop brining up fantasy trade ideas that have no chance of happening.

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

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

    Would you do Danny for Green? I'd think about depending on what Herb says if Larry were to request permission for such a move.
