    Com'n man! You are a Cavs hater! Every time I watch your videos, you always down the Cavs and glorify the Bulls! You are doubting the best player and his team for some reason. A LBJ team can beat an unreliable Rose and co. any day of the week, LOVEless or not.

    Just pointing this out... In your recent article on Klay Thompson you talk about how he broke George Gervin's record for 33 points in a quarter. The record actually belonged to both Gervin and Carmelo Anthony, who scored 33 points in a quarter in 2008. So the record hadn't really "stood for 40 years" as you said. Not technically.

    Calling Blazers a Contender and Grizzlies a Pretender after we just thrashed them. Hahaha, what a joke. I mean, we can't really blame people who are too ignorant and know nothing about basketball or the grizzlies. Do you not know who Mike Conley is? Do you not know who Marc Gasol is? Of course they can make their own shot or even create shots. Saying this, I'm not leaving out ZBO, Tony, or Lee (Who obviously made a clutch play, but you wouldn't know about it because you don't watch the NBA) but they won't be the main players trying to take over late.

    By the way, Melo may have taken the money, but it was reported to be less than the max, meaning Carmelo has given Phil a little cap space to work with. He may have chosen New York for the money, but if he really did, don't you think he'd demand the max, and not less? I believe he has chosen loyalty over winning a ring. Phil had made some good moves up to that point as well, so he does believe that Phil can build a contender.

    That was a weak take in todays interview. Really McRoberts compared to Diaw? An aging Wade over Irving? Wade should be a bench player at this point in his career. The Heats problem is that no matter what they do to the roster, they will have players all on the downside of their careers. It's going to be tough to bring in enough offense and at their age, winning with athletic D is no longer an option.

    nice article. I was just thinking about how stats had overwhelmed the game. I guess it is inevitable (and the stats do support facts and truths, not opinions), but the micro-analysis has sucked some FUN out of the NBA.

    Here's some fun for the Heat--not a three peat ( an old and horrendous term), but a TREY BY THE BAY!!
