    I asked people on RealGM why Watson hasn't really stuck with a team. Apparently by the end of the playoffs Nets fans hated him. I can't see why, someone referenced a very poor playoffs, but still.
    That's just sour grapes there.

    Noah wasn't playing with any intensity or energy last night. It was weird.
    I didn't think about this until KStat and you mentioned it. Admittedly, Dirty Mop head was as annoying as normal to Hibbert as normal....but other than some complaints to the ref ( like he always does ) and my typical "damn, Noah is always the type of player that you hate to play against but want on your Team" thoughts....I really didn't seem to notice how much of an impact that he had on the game. If anything, I noticed it more when Nazr stepped into the game towards the end.

    The disturbing thing about the Bulls hasn't been Rose. It's been Deng and Noah. They are not moving well at all.

    Rose at least still plays like he used to. You can attribute his struggles to 18 months of rust. The other two look like they've aged ten years.

    I secretly started worrying about how Luis will fit in. I don't think Frank really used him all that greatly the first 4 games, and combining that with his comments about not really being comfortable coming off the bench but willing to do so in order to win, I was nervous that he'd get a sour taste in his mouth about being so forgotten, but last night at least made me put those fears to bed for a couple more weeks. That effort right there shows where his head and heart is at, right now IMHO. Guys who sulk don't bust *** like that. No one would have said anything had he gotten the bucket and trotted back after tripping. But no, he took it upon himself to dig in.

    I really really think Vogel should look to get him some more burn. 17mpg just isn't enough IMHO, for what he brings.

    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?

    Ok, very funny, Mr. Sarcastic Understatement,

    You had me for a minute because this is damning with very faint praise.

    Not a high bar, as it were...

    but I must admit I am strangely missing the, "I know he can't get a shot off underneath and couldn't hit a jumper if his life depended on it, but I love his hustle!".

    have to find something to fill that void.

    I want more burn for Scola only cuz I don't want West to get burnt out by the end of the season. West and Scola are both skilled enough to produce at an above average rate....but West can't do it if he's worn out.

    Until last night he hadn't played well enough to earn more minutes, as long as he keeps playing like that he will get more minutes.

    Yeah, but a lot of that was because this is a brand new team that he has to get familiar with. The only way that he's going to get better is if he plays a lot of minutes with these guys so that they can all learn each other's quirks.

    I can't say how great it is having a b/u PF that can hit a jump shot, OR having b/u PG's that can get the job done! With CJ and Sloan at PG, I'm all for giving Hill plenty of time to re-coup, and not rush him back. That wasn't the case last season.

    That is why he was getting 17 minutes instead of 10.

    I don't know how anyone else feels, but I haven't found myself disappointed in Scola's defense at all this season.

    Sure there has been a time or 2 where he has gotten beat, but because of how good everyone else is defensively, he seems to fit in. The effort, intensity, and heart from Scola is just fun to watch.

    Damn, it feels good to finally have a team like this.
    Scola's main problem in defense is that he is not a physical specimen. He is slow, he cannot jump high and he does not possess a great wingspan. David West shares some of these traits but he does have a very good wingspan for his size. Scola's defense has been problematic when he's forced to play Center in the past or when he's paired with Centers that are not great defensively. When he's paired with a rim protector then he can do fine. Then 07-08 Rockets that had Yao Ming and Dikembe Mutombo at C where amazing defensively (2nd in the league) with Scola playing big minutes (4th most in the team). So, it's clear that as long as we can pair him with a rim protector then he will not pose a problem.

    Nets fans hate him for this:



    He blew that dunk and then the Nets proceeded to blow the game as well.

    Bulls fans hate him because in the 11-12 playoffs he shot 24.1% from the floor and 25% from 3.

    In general, CJ is a good player but he has had several bad moments in the playoffs.

    Noah missed the pre-season with a groin injury so there's are his first basketball games of the season. I guess that this could explain some of that.
