    I just wanted to post a quick comment about the Raps vs Hawks game tonight, but for the life of me, couldn't find a relevant thread to put it in!

    So I just started this one (Mods: If there is somewhere better to put this post, please feel free to move it).

    Anyway, this was a very good game to watch. Both teams look very solid. Johnson and Smith for ATL look unstoppable and T.O. has some really solid depth.

    Both of these teams could challenge for playoff spots this season.

    I caught the end of the game too Jammer.

    Atlanta is amazingly good. They seem so confident right now. I think they, not the Cavs could be the power in the East over the next 3 seasons....

    And thanks for starting a thread. It's one of a million things we never got around to this summer!

    I thought that myself watching the game. They had a swagger about them.

    Another thing I was thinking while watching the game was that although T.O. doesn't really have a "Starting 5" per se, they have a bunch of guys who can just come in and contribute with very little drop off from the "starters". They actually kind of remind me of the Alternatorz. Led by a fiesty, high energy PG in Calderon playing the role of Jon Barry.

    Both thoughts had me longing for the good old days of a couple of seasons ago!

    I'm a Fred Jones fan. I think that Raptors second unit of Jones, Calderon, Graham etc is very decent. Probably as good if not better than Hunter, Murray, and Delfino.

    Andrew Bynum is off to a nice start this season for the Lakers.

    (Ok, that was weak. I really just wanted to post this crazy video that I just found, but its from last year, so I had to make it 2006-2007 related for this thread :sssh:.)

    Check out this video! I've watched it 10 times now.

    I had never seen this before. Its from last season. Shaq vs. Bynum. First Shaq gets his, then Bynum gets him back and then they get into it and KOBE BRYANT of all people comes to play peacemaker.

    YouTube - Andrew Bynum!

    Yeah he did. But I love Bynum's reaction. The kid gets up, runs down the court, calls for the ball, gives Shaq a Shake-n-Bake slam then hops back down the court like a kid on Christmas, stares Shaq down and then bounces into him like he's in a mosh pit.

    Priceless! :pound:

    Very true. The average kid would have been severely deflated. Good for Bynum. Makes me wish he was on my team now.

    Funny to think that the Pistons could have ended up bringing Jalen and Chris back home this year.

    Since three-fifths of the fab five were mentioned, where are Jimmy King and Ray Jackson these days and did Jackson ever play in the NBA?:lurking:

    Kobe had an awesome block on Deron Williams last night. The Lakers are really playing good team ball right now.

    BTW, what the hell has got into Utah? They are playing awesome!!!!!!!!

    Warriors-Nugs last night was insane: Denver won 140-129 at home.

    Yeah i like the jazz uni's. Those wiz ones are cringe-worthy. They look like an under 16's outfit.
    Reminds me of my junior basketball days where everyone had to wear black shorts with their team jerseys.

    Seems like Nuggets and Warriors are adjusting the new Suns/Stern ball quicker than most

    Reminds you of the 2004-05 Suns and 2005-06 Pistons...great starts ...unsatisfied finishes in the end.

    Jazz have at least 6 come from behind wins where they were down double digit points. When you start to believe you are going to win, then the home games become automatic wins. Just think the Pistons were that close to beating thenm a couple of weeks ago if not for a bad start and a few questionable calls in the end.

    Barring injury, the Jazz can probably get 55+wins.

    Absolutely shooting the lights out last night. I couldn't believe all the jumpshots that hit nothing but net. I didn't know the Warriors could shoot the basketball like that. I was seriously impressed with that aspect of their game.
