Yesterday probably elminated them from getting overall HCA, but are they trying to duck the 1 seed in the west?
And why has Derrick Rose still not returned?!?!?
What a prank! Prank of the century, probably! Just as long as everyone doesn’t realize that NBA free agents aren’t signed in April, that LeBron isn’t a free agent for another year and that he would obviously pick his next free agent destination on television, this is the perfect prank. Boy, are you gullible.
Of course, if you read the copy and the subtitle, this is pretty clearly the least committed-to prank in the history of April Fools’ Day. It’s like the Cleveland Plain-Dealer’s editors were like, “Well, it’s April Fools’ Day tomorrow so we need to do something, but let’s not go overboard with it. In fact, make sure everyone knows we’re joking so we don’t have another “War of the Worlds” situation on our hands. Have you seen what people around here are capable of when they’re upset? Too scary.”
Co-host Terry Boers cited one of his infamous 'guys' who told him that the Bulls have stopped even trying to ask Rose to come back this season. They had been doing so in the past month, but it was interpreted as undue 'pressure' from Rose (or more accurately: his camp), so instead of even having a hint of friction (real or imagined), they've just stopped and hope Derrick decides to come back.
Boers emphasized that from the Bulls perspective, this has nothing to do with the Bulls competing this season, but only with Rose getting over this final phase of his rehab so that it's not pushed into next year. That this part of the process (playing through pain) was explained to him at the outset of the recovery, and in their final 'push' to him they had "3 different doctors" consult him on playing games as being necessary. They even offered to have other former ACL cases talk to him as well.
And again: from the Bulls side this was meant to be educational, not pressure. But since the Rose camp is taking it that way, they decided it was not worth the trouble to keep it up, so for now they've stopped. There's no incentive for the Bulls to rush him, so they're kind of miffed that it's being seen that way.
If Laker miss the playoff it would be a lot more entertaining off season no?
I've noticed people lumping in MIN games as winnable for opposing teams the last few days. My memory may be off, but MIN has actually been quite competitive lately.
There are predictably already rumors that Howard will tell the team that he will walk unless they bring Jackson back.
Anyone else think the Warriors actually have a chance against the Nuggets in the first round?
With the Laker's suspect defense, 15 point lead at the half is hardly a sure thing.
Howard probably thinks that Jackson would (1) make him a first option, or at least a close second, and (2) be able to rein in Bryant.
Bryant deserves a lot of credit for going 48 and putting up a triple/double in a big game at his age, regardless of his faults or any skepticism about the severity of his injuries
RR, Hombre: You guys have probably already mentioned this, but there has to be some concern that these guys are going to be completely gassed when the playoffs roll around, right?
Howard supposedly really wanted Phil as coach from the time they canned Brown and has never seemed to warm to D'Antoni.
Adding to this, the Triangle can be a very good offense for a mobile post player, in that he can post and re-post as the ball swings. Also, Howard has bittched a lot about how MDA never practices defense, etc. and Jackson has a good record as a defensive coach.
Not that I really blame him, given the situation and his personnel 8-12, but D'Antoni is coaching like a guy who thinks he has no future.
Javaris Crittenton (who you may remember from the Arenas gun incident) has been indicted for gang-related murder. Sounds bad.
"That's what happens when you rush back and try to help your team win."
And last thing, speaking of the Bulls game last night: with a healthy roster, the Wizards are... the 8 seed? Is 7 too high? They're not good, don't get me wrong, but the East is that bad.
I'm pretty sure they could push the Heat to six games. It's a damn good team, especially Chandler and Melo. I'm not an expert on basketball by any means, but those two would have to qualify as two of the top twenty players in the league, no?

That kind of begs the question of whether Wall could play like this for the full season (19-8-4, 45% fg, 39% 3, 84% on 6 FTA/G). If so, I think they're right with Milwaukee in the playoff picture, but it seems possible that he is benefiting from being more fresh than everyone else in the season's doldrums.
Anyone else see the tweet today that said Howard has missed more FTs this season than Nash has in his 17 year career?
puck, Swisher, Coffee Man, any other DEN fans--that is a drag about Gallinari.
I would think that if a woman ever could play in the NBA, it would have to be a small, extremely fast point guard/ball handler type player who was quick enough to create their own jumpers (like say, Iverson or Nash) rather than a forward like Griner. I just don't see it ever working at a position that requires a lot of physical strength to be successful.
Since the All-Star break the Lakers give up an average of 100.4 points per 100 possessions when Howard is their anchor, but an atrocious 115.8 when he's off the court.
