This year's Grizzlies are a very good team for a 5th seed, and LAC's second-best player was hurt.
But if you dropped him on the Grizzlies
LeBron misses unanimous MVP by 1 vote...which went to Melo.
Provided by the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn. At least it wasn't a NY guy, anyway. That kind of thing always chaps my hide.
-Considers LeBron on MJ’s level but MJ didn’t win every year either even if he technically could have
[... snip ...]
-He had no idea he would be the sole dissenter and thought CP3, Durant and Kobe would also receive support
Most VALUABLE Player award not Best Player award
Heat without LeBron are a 5/6 seed, Knicks without Melo are a lottery team (Zach Lowe pointed out that the Wins gap between 1 and 5/6 was larger than the wins gap between 2 and 9)
I found it amusing that, while consciously referring to all three players by their last names, I typed in three traditional first names.
And, Detroit have huge huge cap room, they should easily sign Paul and add other pieces if they want. and I'm pretty sure "getting out of the west" would already be a huge sell to Paul.
I'm not sure moving to the conference with Lebron is a big selling point.
In his 8 season in the NBA, Paul has never made it out of the 2nd round, in fact, he only came close even once.
it's to avoid criticism like 314 that this was solely done for the attention.
But I do think these types of votes always have an element of "look at me, I'm going to zig when everyone else zags" to them.
That truth is this: Paul is short and not really that prolific a scorer in the NBA. He will absolutely make you a ton better, but if you wind up in a playoff series where he's clearly your best scorer, and you need him to put up a ton of points, it's going to be tough.

Thibs on Rose's availability for this series: "We'll see"

Thibs says he spoke to Deng this morning. He is out of the hospital. They still aren't sure exactly what is wrong.
is playing Drummond and Monroe together a workable plan?
There are not that many fours who play off the dribble anyway- the guys who do not focus on inside/PNR functions are more spot-up shooters anyway.
Monroe is at least as capable as Z-Bo of guarding quicker fours. He is lanky and has a back-to-the-basket game, which are both qualities that make him seem like a pure interior player. He is quite athletic, though, and moves better than most guys his size.
Nothing against Kia, but calling it the Kia NBA MVP kinda takes a little shine off it, no?
But the first thing that comes to mind is Game 1 of Iverson vs. the Lakers. Sometimes one game is just one game.
I missed the game, so this may be off, and I'm glad the Bulls got Game 1 and would love to see them knock off the Heat. But the first thing that comes to mind is Game 1 of Iverson vs. the Lakers. Sometimes one game is just one game.
RT @gbnypat There is an alternate universe where Tom Thibodeau coaches a Knicks team that starts Curry, Shumpert, Chandler, Gallo, and Noah
A bad loss for Golden State.
A lot of people in my office are cheering for the Knicks but really dislike the players, Melo and J.R. in particular.
What is this team now, exactly? There's basically no way for them to improve the current roster.
Last night was also one of those games where you really wonder about Bosh.
(3) I've grown to love Noah, I mean, love the guy;
POOMA, but is it because their games tend to be so low scoring that it's hard for teams, good or bad, to separate?
I absolutely LOATHED him and could not have hated that pick more. I have never had as dramatic of a change about how I feel about an athlete than I have with him.
They have him playing away from the basket to keep the paint open for James/Wade drives. Lebron took advantage of that several times near the end when Bosh had Noah pulled away from the hoop (although Noah cheated in as much as he could off of Bosh). If Bosh is missing those midrange jumpers, there is not much of a plan B in that offense. It probably does not maximize his value, but it is part of creating the whole team offense. Granted, part of that theory is that Wade can also use the driving lanes, and he failed miserably at that last night. I agree that he needs to be MUCH better for the Heat to max out.
Der_K was totally right?
