BOLD PREDICTIONS Prior to the season;
-Philly will finish with the worst record in NBA history
-Detroit are the sleepers of the East, will finish 6th
-John Wall will lead the league in APG
-Dallas will make WCF
Trevor Ariza was also a big key in the playoffs last year. Hopefully Pierce can do what Ariza did last year :P
Hope Beal starts to pick it up this month, and continues during the playoffs.
I hope Beal can start playing like the way I expected him to play, before the season.
He's been underperforming this year, and that injury made it worse...
Washington loses 6 games in a row, and they FINALLY win a game!
I´m totally with you!
And I would even go far ahead. If Rondo works out (still have the hope), this is the best starting 5 by far^^ I can´t see any time coming Close... An Elite scoring Punch with Ellis and Dirk! A boarderline All-Star defensive anchor with Chandler... An elite PG and the best true floor General since Jason Kidd in his prime and elite Defender with Rondo. And one of the best complementary Players who does it all with Parsons. In theory so great! But it only dpeneds on the commitment and effort of Rondo...
But I really have hope, read some articles that when Kidd came over here he had Kind of same Problems with Carlisle. We will see!
Ok, Convinced on Crowder, would throw 3 Mio to him, too! :-) And in ad. to his latest Performances, he has agreat character and high motor^^ But the loss of Brandan Wright still hurts us more. So glad that we have now Amare.
Now think of the Bucks if Parker would be healthy^^. It´s not too bad with MVW on PG, at the 2 Middleton or Mayo, Giannis at the 3, Parker at 4 and throw in Henson or whoever, even Zaza at the 5...
Cody zeller and Vonleh, the best potential PF-Tandem in the NBA, but at some Point potential muss convert to the game ;-) Hope Vonleh will see some time soon, but as you said the Coach doesn´t trust him right now^^
Btw. sometimes it´s funny to see how it develops. Haven´t talked about Kanter, Adams and McGary... Remember Meyers Leonard?!? He was a 10th pick and has a very high work ethic... And he still is on the Level of vet-minimum veterans you can buy on mass... It must be really hard even to get over the boarderline of constand NBA-readiness^^
Alvin Gentry would be a solid choice, I just feel like there's probably some really good prospective coaches that I haven't even heard of. I would be totally fine if we got someone like that. I never heard Mike Budenholzer before he was w/ the Hawks.
Another loss to a bottom feeder though. I'm not sure how much firing Wittman would do right now, but if you think about it, what good is Ernie doing? The trade deadline has come and gone, we sure as h!@# don't need him for the draft. How amazing would it be if Ted canned is a$$ right now!!!?
(I know he probably won't but I can dream)
Use this account
Turns out my account just had a glitch and will be fine, so I won't be using this one anymore.
Yeah it has been a while :)
But the Wizards have really taken a step back after looking like a contender earlier in the season. Lance also hasn't panned out for the Hornets and Rondo and Carlilse were close to throwing punches. Lol jk about the last part :P who r ur Western Conference favorites? Now that the Spurs look like they're gonna lose in the 1st round, the West looks wide open
Mike Malone would be a solid replacement, great defense, haven't heard much about his offense though. Some people have been saying Miami's ast might be good, but tbh I don't really know anything about him. I wish we could somehow get Kevin Ollie, great coach and KD loves that guy! I don't know who KD's shooting coach is but I'm all for bringing him aboard, haha. We already have David Adkins too.
Just read an encouraging post by Ted Leonsis in which he talks about how concerning our lack of 3pt and FT shooting is and how it puts us at a huge disadvantage in today's NBA. It's good to know he's taking note of these issues, maybe it sets the stage for an overhaul this offseason!
