no foul there??
no foul there??
BUILT, NOT BOUGHT
Apparently Norris Cole is allowed to just tackle people. Tough loss for the Bobkitties.
Not watching. Did Walker try to miss the third shot?
Anthony Davis broken hand. Sucks for them, probably going to nose dive in standings, and will probably keep him out of all-star game.
"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."
----------------- Reggie Miller
Wow that does suck. He's been playing so well and really enjoyed watching him.
Philly has their pick in the draft unless it is top 5. That's tough. Anybody know how long he is out? 2 months? Maybe they should trade Tyreke and really try to tank if that is even possible to secure a top 5 pick. Better them getting it than Philly.
I get the sense that Woodsen's days as the Knick's Coach are numbered.
Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
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.
I'm sick of all this talk about teams tanking. Bulls are tanking, this team is tanking, whatever. Can we shut up about the tanking talk and just say the East is terrible?
A team could win 37 games and still make the Playoffs as a 7 seed. Possibly even win the Atlantic Division. 2/3 of the East are 'tanking.' Or maybe they're just terrible.
It sucks, but the league rewards it for the most part.
Last year the Bulls were able to persevere because they hoped that Rose would be back for the playoffs or at worst would be back for the start of this season (which is what ended up happening). They rallied around playing for D-Rose, but they were all under the impression that he would at worst be back at the start of this season. But him getting hurt again is just too much to handle for these guys. Yeah Tibbs is a great coach and yeah they still have some good players, but they are still human beings. Watching their teammate and friend go down again has to completely deflate them mentally. They know they don't have enough without him to get anywhere near the Conference Finals.
The Jimmy Butler injury doesn't help either. That guy is pretty good.
Anyone have insider access at ESPN?

Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."
“Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.
What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?
Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.
That pictures make him more look like a freak of nature than usual.
So the Russian went into Brooklyn's locker room with a ball peen hammer and sent the team a message on Pierce's hand, right?
How can analysts continue to discredit the Pacers start regarding only playing 4 Western teams? The Heat have only played the West THREE times (one of them being the "meh" Suns), but nobody is referencing that to discredit their hot start.
I understand that analysts are raving about the Pacers, but still some are questioning how much we have really been questioned. Does anyone do the same to the Heat, who's three losses came from teams we beat?
That said, I've never been more excited about a 5 game stretch in December. Begin the h8er challenge
We got a new weapon this time around: a Lance forged on the Isle de Coney, built for piercing trolls and false kings alike! Prince Paul rides with this Lance at hand, from the West fortress on Mt. Hibb. He shall pierce the demon heart of your misguided Cavalier, and he shall claim his crown.

Miami's got the benefit of the doubt. And deservedly so. They've got virtually the same team back that won those titles.
(P.S. It is incredibly stupid to discredit the Pacers start.)
"Oh, and conspiracy theorists? The NBA's Final Four are Miami (#16 TV market), Indiana (#26), San Antonio (#36), Memphis (#49). #tinfoil"
"See how stupid those fans sound complaining about the officials. That is one reason why I hate when Pacers fans complain about the refs - does not come across well at all, no matter the merit. "
Finally a good show from Tim Duncan. 23pts in 10/15 FG, 21rebs, 2blks, and the game winning shot.
Pelicans-Bulls game is going into triple overtime. That's like a whole extra quarter of basketball.
Interesting list, How the owners of all 30 NBA teams made their money.

...and I agree basically. Miami is the favorite, but if we win every game by 45 I may reconsider.
He also said they've been there and proven they can win it all, and we haven't proven any thing. We clearly haven't proven we can win a championship, but I think we have proven we have the potential.
