    I got ripped for this question a week ago, but I'll ask again...Did Cleveland screw up the draft by going with Bennett? I know its only been 2 games, but he has scored a total of 2 points, and has yet to make a FG. If you are picked 1 overall, you have to contribute from day one
    I agree with you I'm not sure what they saw on that guy.

    It's amazing the percentage of NBA teams that have tall white guys with beards at the end of their bench.

    Livinstong looks really good I'm glad he was able to come back, he even looks confident, that happens to me and I don't take it to the hoop ever again.

    Nate Wolters with 14 and 6 for the Bucks off the bench. Very nice.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I didn't expect us to come within 20 points of memphis will will bynum starting at PG, so this was a wash.

    Bynum is so amazingly awful when he's not shooting in the paint. If we cut him tomorrow I'd buy drinks the the entire city.

    5'11" and he kicks the ball off his foot 7 times a game. Can't throw a pass that isn't a lob if you offered him double salary. Worst defender on the team by an insane margin.

    We outplayed Memphis in their own building for 47 minutes, which counts for.....jack ****.

    Jennings can't come back fast enough. Bynum can't be banished to the end of the bench fast enough.

    Bynum made me appreciate Rodney Stuckey tonight. Let that sink in.

    Yeah that was horrible, I was expecting his leg to break in half when he took it to the rack against Bosh, I'm glad he is good.

    It's cool to see Pierce and Garnett's personalities rub off on that entire Nets team. The Nets roster is filled with a bunch of Sophomores, and Pierce and Garnett are the Seniors who can hook everyone up with beer.

    I know, right? 6-22 from the field, 3-11 from three point range...oh, wait. That was Josh Smith's line. My bad.

    Their offense is so much better this year, they had two coaches last year and their offense was horrible, now the ball moves from side to side and whoever is open takes the shot, I'm liking their offense.

    If I had to guess the record of any team when they have Josh Smith and he is attempting 11 threes, I would pick a very low number.

    I can live with it if he shoots %30. And his defense is so phenomenal I really don't care, so long as he stays away from the mid range shots.

    We lose by 20 without the havoc Smith caused defensively.

    Pierce in a Brooklyn jersey just looks......weird. Patrick Ewing on the Orlando Magic thinks that's messed up.

    To reiterate....we're never in position to win the game without him. I could have done without a few of those shots, but you take what you get with him.

    Smith couldn't get anything to go inside either, of course Bynum can't feed the post for **** so every time he caught the ball on the block it was a horrible angle.

    I am biased, I guess, by watching Josh Smith having no real clue how to guard David West. I have a hard time calling him some kind of defensive savant.

    ....apparently it doesnt take a genius to guard paul george then? Because he defended him pretty easily once they switched him to SF...

    You can call him whatever you want, but he was phenomenal on defense tonight. Not thrilled about the 7-23, but he was missing close in shots as well. Just wasn't his night.

    Of course, if we don't get snakebit in the last 30 seconds, Smith's 3 to put us up 6 late is the shot of the game. Again, good with the bad.

    And Nate Robinson is trying to bail out Brian Shaw's ill-fated strategy of playing smashmouth basketball featuring JaVale McGee, J.J. Hickson, Kenneth Faried, Timofey Mozgov, and Darrell Arthur.
