Just a killer crossover and a warm welcome for Courtney Lee in his home town...
He is a prime candidate for most improved, though. Afflalo and Turner are good candidates for this award as well. But the front-runner at this point is Bledsoe, imo. He is having a great season and the Suns are actually a winning team under his leadership unlike Orlando and Philly.

Sound good to everyone?
Roy looked extremely uncomfortable in that interview. He usually doesn't look at the camera, but he really looked extremely uncomfortable.
So we're on track for about 66 wins. I've always felt that 63-65 was a good benchmark for getting the 1 seed.
Wests one saving grace could be injuries and just how bad the east is. But I agree I doubt he gets in.
Not sure how having the forwards together hurts West. There are three forward spots and two wild cards for coaches to fill.
Maybe DWest should stop blocking out so that Lance can get the rebound and go for them himself.

Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.

40 points off the bench, that's hard to believe. When you think back to last year that would have taken us 5 games to achieve.
This bench has a chance to be better then the bench we had in some of the late 90's teams and we had an incredible bench then.

Man, the last 2 games have been a lot of fun, loud & rowdy home crowd!

I think coaches still think in more in terms of a traditional lineup then fans do. Now that they've eliminated the center position fans would just vote for 5 wing players if they could.
I see Hibbert and possibly Drummond getting in since no centers will be voted in by the fans. West is a long shot but maybe.
Things I never thought I would Google until tonight, "Lance Stephenson Pelvic Thrust".
I'm usually one of those 'wait-and-see' sorta pessimistic guy that needs to watch the season play out and whatnot. But, the more I watch this team, the more I feel that this year could actually be OUR YEAR! Does anyone else feel that way?
Looking at it objectively I can see how Lance's antics would **** off the other team and its fans.
We know that it's just Lance being Lance but other teams justifiably perceive some of his behaviors as disrespectful.
