Jens has yet to fill out a bio.
Memphis is playing exceptionally well, i would have never picked how good they are playing going into the season! They are really consistent too! I was watching Grantland's, it's a new televised show that Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose do, they had a great trade i thought, the trade is; Clippers sign Ray Allen, then trade Jamal Crawford to Memphis for Tony Allen. Imagine that, Memphis gets high volume scorer, and Clippers get a a good 3 player that they currently lack in. HOwever, Memphis is not in a situation to trade at this point, there's no need for them to trade, and it would be a risk incase the departure of Tony hurts Memphis's team culture!
Houston have been incredible too, i hate it, but you have to give them credit.. Trevor Ariza has worked out really well there, and even though they do have a weak bench, it's working. Plus, they've lost Dwight and Beverly a number of games this season so far.. Another team is Toronto, they have been so good and consistent! They could do with a better front court, but Lowry and Derozan and Lou Williams off the bench have been playing so well. If i were Toronto, i would look at adding Pekovic, with a C like Pek, they could be contenders.
Charlotte has real issues. Lance is not working out, he's a great rebounder and passer but he doesn't score, and scoring is something we need to win! Our defense has dropped too, and i don't get why, we lost McRoberts but we added better defenders as a whole. Charlotte has some real chemistry problems at the moment, they have no identity, and you never know when they will show up to a game, some games they look like they want to win, other games it looks like they don't care!
The Bucks and Kings! Wow, DMC has emerged as a true leader, Gay is playing the best basketball of his career and our guy Collison looks to have found a home! Bucks are just on fire, they've got so much talent, they could be a really good franchise in time!
Yeah Kobe is playing pretty selfish basketball, however i think that's his desire to win coming out in him, he knows he doesn't have the talent around him to win many games so he feels like he has to do all he can to atleast be in contention to win the game with 2minutes to go! I love Kobe though, kind of disappointed to see him in that situation.
Dallas is playing really efficient basketball, Brandon Wright is money when he has the ball in his hands close to the rim, and Chandler is looking like the championship Chandler we used to see. Monta has been good too. We just need to continue focusing on working on that defense because everyone knows how dangerous our offense is!
Didn't watch the Dallas- Philly game, but wow! I seen the highlights haha, that was incredible offense! We almost beat the biggest ever winning margin and a few franchise records! Great game, and was good to see the bench warmers get a bit of time at the end. Dirk is playing redirkulous efficiency! I seen somewhere that Dallas is relying way to much on Dirks production! I couldn't believe it, it seems like this year Dirk hasn't even taken over 12 shots.. He's been taking like 8-12 shots and still getting 15-25points. His efficiency will be 50-40-90 this year, i'm picking it!
Dallas is a contender, i fully believe, despite the defense that we will be a WCF team
We don need him though. Teague's here for life and I doubt Schroder will be in the rotation at the end of the season.
How are you?
i reported you to jeff chase bro.
Yeah bro, Tyreke Evans is looking his old self now, and i like it, i'm a fan of his and i didn't want to see him fade out to an average bench player.
Tonight was another good win, i didn't see this game though but we scored 67 points in the half again! that's 3 games in a row of 60+ first half points!
Dirk and Parsons looked like they killed it, so efficient to see Dirk post 27 points on only 14 shots, and Parsons 29 on 15 shots! Our offense is really good. I see Aminu got injured to, hopefully he not out for too long. I gota say though, we have to work on not letting teams get back into the game when we have such big leads though.
Klay Thompson is a beast, i think he could actually be the best SG in the game this season maybe, equal with Harden possibly? But then i guess Wade has been good thus far, and Derozan could make a case also while Beal is out..
You see the Pelicans game? Man 66 points in the first half, 2nd night in a row of putting up more than 60 points in a half, our offense is looking too good!
Tyson Chandler is going to have incredable FG% numbers, the only way he scores is off alley oops, and it's not like he's going to miss a great deal of those.
We let Pelicans get right back into the game, but theres only so much you can do to stop Anthony Davis, he is a beast, and going to be up for MVP considerations. Tyreke had a brilliant second half, at the half time he only had 3 points and 5 assists! And Jrue Holiday was lethal from deep.
However we won the game and was a good division win considering how tight this division is going to be! Pity my Cats couldn't win against Memphis, however they were robbed! Bad call at the end of the game that resulted in a loss for us, we would have won otherwise! so annoyed.
Surprised to see Detroit loose again, 0-3 now, i see them as the sleepers of the East, however its still early days, a lot of time left! And yeah the contracts are heavy, especially Rubios but the new TV deal should help out a bit.
Although i still think mediocre players are getting payed star treatments, theres going to be big problems in the future financially, and the gap between the little contracts and big contracts are going to continue to grow significantly. Suddenly everyone thinks they are 50+ million dollar players..
Yeah our roster has so much flexibility, it's crazy, we are so deep at every position, i still don't know how Carlisle is going to work the back up PG rotation though, because apparently Barea wanted out of MIN because he didn't think he had a good enough role (as a 3rd string PG), so even though he loves Dallas, i don't know if he would come here if he wasn't going to see much time? Maybe Carlisle has told him he will be a vocal point of our offense? I still think this could mean the end of Felton.
Man today, wow!
1) Charlotte, i could not believe it! Down by 24 points in the 2nd half! Marvin Williams played awesome, MKG is looking highly improved! he's got so much confidence (he could be a MIP candidate), then Kemba, played so bad throughout the majority of the game (shooting 3-8 FTs) and pretty much throwing bricks the whole game! Then to hit a 3 to force OT, then a game winner! He's got ice in his veins, he lives for those moments, it was so great! But we wouldn't have won it without Marvin.
2) Boston looked terrific, they played the perfect game. Rondo, you would have not thought he just came back from injury!
3) Washington, tough loss, but i was expecting it. Chris Bosh looked so good, like his Toronto self.
4) Marc Gasol and Z-Bo came out to play! I can't believe how tough the SW is going to be; Dallas, Spurs, Houston, Memphis and Pelicans! By far the toughest division in the comp.
5) I can already see the potential in Milwaukee and Minnesota, they both played great games today.
6) Kobe is back! But the Lakers, have nothing else..
I could analyze every game, but we have so much more season to go so i'll leave it as that haha
Jazz tomorrow, should be a good game!
