    I thought they did well last year in the second round of the playoffs against Cleveland, despite Lebron getting all the whistles. Maybe Arenas got some too, but I assume not.


    Anyhow, here's to a Pistons and...(fill in the blank) final.:cheers:

    Suns Steve Nash just had 15 assists and no turnovers as the Suns ran all over the Cavaliers.

    The dude is making a serious bid to be a 3 time MVP.

    No doubt. If he records another 50-40-90 season its a lock.

    Shooting over 50% from 3 while averaging over 2.5 3's per game is just ridiculous.

    Kevin Garnett just scored 44 points on the Suns. And won.

    Arenas only just came up short on his 50 point prediction.

    By 41 points. Lol. Nice one Agent 9.

    I noticed this as well. It's a good day for the leaders of the East when the competition heads out to Portland and gets whooped.

    Well the game was actually in Washington. Stevenson led the Wiz with 12 points. Paltry seems like an appropriate word to use here.

    Don't know if anyone noticed or cared, but Julius Hodge, the Nuggets 2005 1st round pick, who was later traded to Milwaukee with Earl Boykins for Steve Blake, was waived by the Bucks.

    It's pretty rare to see a mid-late first rounder get waived in only his second year.

    I know Eddie Jones is 35 years old and Joe D had no thought of even seeing if he was available for stretch run when he was languishing on the Grizzlies bench. I just hope he is not the factor that gets the Heat going. I mean they missed out on trying to sign Webber and Rose and finally found someone to beef up their bench. I know we will have to sacrifice PT for one of our yunguns, but even if Joe cannot find the backup pg. he still has to find some vet that can shore up the bench even when Hunter is out there with them:),

    I heard a couple of weeks ago the Suns offered Jalen another buy out but he preferred to stay there and see if he can get that ring even without playing and contributing. He has seen action on the court only twice in the last 16 games scoring 7 points and 2 assists. (including last nights loss to the Bulls.)

    Looks like maybe you were right Dlev.

    They have talent, but if they fold this easily both on AND off the court with Jamison going out only a few days ago then it certainly doesn't appear they can go very far in the playoffs.

    Maybe??

    Trust me, come playoff time (or before) they will fold like a lawn chair!

    Orlando and/or Miami will catch and takeover the lead in their division.

    I attended the Knicks-Lakers game last night to see if the lakers couLd over come their road woes and win one at home and to see if Zekes knicks are for real.

    Well just as some of us suspected a few weeks ago, the Lakers are Fakers. All of those early wins were based on them outscoring teams at home who had not got their team's chemistry together yet.

    Even though the game was close and the Knicks won on an alley-oop to Curry in the last seven seconds, they were able to penetrate the Laker interior defense at will. Starbury, Francis, and Crawford drove right by Smush and the reserves to take over the game in the second half. Richarson took care of the perimeter with uncontested shots. The game was only close because the Knicks missed 9 FT's and the lakers hit 11 three pointers. (they shot 27 of them as that is normally their biggest weapon when kobe is sitting.)

    The lakers defense is non-existent and talk radio is allover them today blaming everyone from Phil just now trying to talk defense at midseason, to Lamar Odom not being ready to blaming the 4 game losing streak due to the loss of all-pros Luke walton and Kwame Brown to injury.:)

    Meanwhile zeke's boys are a scrappy over achieving bunch who have already matched last year's LB team in wins and are only 3 games out of the final playoff spot. (Watchout Indy and orlando).

    Meanwhile Big ben was paid $60 million to turn the Bulls around and they are only 5 games ahead of last years schedule. His numbers are 6.2 ppg, 10.3 rpg and 2 blocks. Well the guy he replaced, Tyson Chandler who pulled down 23 boards last night is putting up better numbers than Ben at 8ppg, 12.1 rpg and 1.8 blocks.

    I know it's all relative but if the Bulls don't make it to the second round, some in Chitown will be quick to look at Chandlers numbers if they are better than Bens at year end and the Hornets manage to grab the 8th spot and take the Mavs to at least 5 games before succumbing:)

    Dlev, Tater has a serious man-crush on Agent Zero and watches basketball entirely through stat-tracker.
