    Oh, and remember when Shumpert got a tech for staring at Garnett after his nasty dunk? Yeah, neither do the NBA officials, evidently.

    Is it me or is Blake Griffin tremendously overrated? Everytime I watch him play....I'm just not THAT impressed. Very good player? Sure. But he has this hype of being this superstar "one of the best players in the league" and I just dont see it.

    I don't see Blake Griffin as a top-tier player just yet. He needs to keep developing his outside shot and improve his free throws.

    Initially, I thought Griffin will be good enough to be in the U.S. Men's team for London 2012.

    But I think with Kevin Love's all-around game, it was hard for me to ignore.

    So, if I were Coach K and Jerry Conangelo, this will really be my USA Men's team as they defend their Olympic Gold Medal in London 2012...

    Agreed on Love...his skillset is perfect for the international game

    Blake is just raw. For me, the fact that he plays as well as he does while being raw is impressive.
    All depends on his work ethic to see if he becomes a true great of the game. He could end up like Howard and just be really really good but never quite improve his weaknesses.


    In 2008, I remember the best line up having Bosh at Center. I think it was something like CP3-Wade-Kobe-Lebron-Bosh and they really spread the floor.
    I have to put CP3 ahead of Rose because of CP3's outside shot.
    And then because nobody can match up with Durant or James, you could probably get away with Love at Center. And the screen-roll between CP3 and Love or any of the starters and Love, would be devastating. If they switch, blow by for lay ups and if they try to trap, Love wide open for 3.

    Is there a bigger punk than Dwight Howard? I would volunteer to hold him down while Van Gundy bitch slaps him!

    Odom out in Dallas:

    http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...es-immediately

    Lamar Odom's brief and bumpy ride with the Dallas Mavericks has come to an abrupt end.

    The Mavericks and Odom spent Easter Sunday working out a parting, according to sources close to the situation, that frees the struggling Odom to leave the team immediately without actually being released.

    Wow, Dwight Howard has a herniated disc and is recommended to be shut down for 2 weeks.

    I read this Simmons article yesterday -

    4. After guaranteeing they'd make the playoffs, Golden State subtly went into tank mode a few games ago. Remember, if the Warriors' pick doesn't land in the top seven, they lose it to Utah which is why you can expect David Lee to get shut down any day with "knee tendinitis" or some equally bogus injury. Feel free to start gambling against them if gambling were legal. If teams are going to crap on their fans, we may as well profit from it.

    News from today -

    David Lee (groin) will be out indefinitely for the Warriors.

    Lee has already been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Clippers, but it sounds like he's going to miss much more time than that. He is absolutely a shutdown candidate for the remainder of the season as doctors have advised him not to play until it's completely healed. If this is it for Lee this season, he'll finish the year with averages of 20.1 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals on 50.3 percent shooting.

    This is funny because Simmons was one of the big media guys who actually had no clue about the reasoning behind the Bogut/Ellis trade until either Bucher or Stein explained it to him on Twitter.

    Now several weeks later he's acting like he's reporting something original or unique.

    Dwight Howard is out for the year now with season-ending back surgery.

    That also puts Howard's chances for London 2012 in jeopardy.

    So, if Howard can't go to London to defend Team USA's gold medal in men's basketball, then, I would like to see Tyson Chandler get in on the team due to his height and tough defense.

    World Peace is a piece of dog sh*t and should be suspended for what he just did to Harden.

    I hope he gets more than three games.He SHOULD, just based on his history.

    He should sit for the rest of the season. That was an awful play and the guy has a bad history.

    Harden will be lucky if he plays again this season because he almost definetly has a concussion.

    I don't follow the NBA and I have no idea who this guy is, but I heard about him on the news and the irony of his name is too delicious to be true.

    He used to be Ron Artest....aka the guy who jumped into the stands in Detroit to fight Pistons fans and started the worst brawl in NBA history.

    I didn't know he was Ron Artest. Aaahhh, World Peace for a name just became more amusing to me, if that could be possible.

    He changed his name in September, because he was "turning over a new leaf," or so he claims. Seems like the same old Ron Artest to me.

    The suspension should be for the remainder of this season (including playoffs) and a significant part of early next season.

    Re: 2011-2012 NBA Season Thread

    What Artest did is beyond despicable. There is no excuse and anyone who believes he didn't know what he was doing is delusional. He 100% intended to hurt James Harden with that shot. He should be out for the rest of the season at least.

  23. #273

    Re: 2011-2012 NBA Season Thread

    Artest is one of my favorite players, but that was just horrible. Not to be dramatic but he could have killed him (seriously, Harden gets knocked out cold, falls and slams his head...). There's no way that was a celebratory gesture and shame on Ron for trying to spin it as such. Suspend him for the playoffs and 20 games to start next season.

    7 games?? Thats bullsh*t. Should be the rest of the season at least. Meanwhile, poor OKC probably lost their 3rd best player for the rest of their season and put a huge dent in their title chances.
