    Spurs lost to the Hornets tonight.... New Orleans is a very active/agressive team.

    HOLY COW! Knicks and Suns in Triple overtime at MSG.

    Knicks up by 4 last I looked. 3 Suns starters have fouled out, Nash and Marion both have 5 fouls on them and Phoenix is playing with a short bench. GO LB!!!! Unleash the dogs of war!

    Raise your hand if you ever expected an LB-coached team to score 140 points or give up 133 (regardless of how many OTs the game had).

    Vince Carter slaps Morris Peterson in the face & Mo got ejected...and the Raptors lose on a last second shot by Vinsanity (Mo's guard).

    Check out the tape on Sports Center or Cold Pizza.

    Some things are just not right. :P

    Very provocative article by a Sacramento youth coach, blaming Sonny Vaccaro and the shoe companies for ruining basketball. You may disagree with the viewpoint, but there's a lot of truth in it.

    The Knicks beat Cavs tonight at Cleveland... their 4th win in a row.
    Larry has them playing unselfish ball... Marburry is making solid decisions now.
    Reminds me of LB's first year here.... just with more youth... he's PLAYING ALL OF THE ROOKIES!... they must have some talent.

    I liked that article OK, but it's not journalistic in nature, that's for sure. If the writer is going to make those charges about Sonny Vaccaro, the writer should at least give the guy a chance to respond.

    Possible new Developement in Artest Trade Talk

    That must be why multiple suitors who've chased Artest from the start are suddenly calling L.A. "the team." Yet that would almost certainly require the inclusion of Corey Maggette, which the Clippers have steadfastly resisted.
    Have they reconsidered?
    There is a growing belief around the league that they have, with the Clips' 14-5 start a memory and Mike Dunleavy Sr. perfectly willing to coach the game's foremost problem child. Remember what Dunleavy said in our recent package on the Clippers, before Artest's trade demand was issued: "Give me talent, I'll figure out how to make 'em happy."

    Comments: Artest for Magette? Nice pickup for the Pacers if it happends. Magette is supposed to be back from his injury in another month. Plenty of time to get him accumulated before the playoffs.

    I was going to write a column on this but I found it unneccessary as I think this article does a great job of detailing what has made this team look quite different the last couple of games. Watching them play, they appear to be a much more disciplined team. It took some time but they are finally buying into Brown's system and the results have been encouraging.

    A couple of interesting points that were not mentioned in the article.
    • Brown has shown that he is not afraid to play the youth ahead of veterans
    • This New York team has been stellar offensively during there current winning streak.
    • Nate Robinson, overshadowed by the amazing play of Channing Frye, is quitely having a terrific season for the Knicks.
    By the midway point of the season, I expect the Knicks record to get a healthy injection. At that point, I think we will be able to see if the playoffs are a attainable goal for Zeke's boys.

    Just before the half, Knicks pounding the Mavs, 51-36. NY has more offensive boards than defensive ones. 12/11 for 23 boards.

    The Lakers beating a healty Miami team is the icing on this seasons cake... the pundits can go to hell... the Heat are way overrated.
    Some said that the new mix they added would work... they didn't understand that there's not enough leather to go around...

    Then there's the inevitable injuries to Shaq & Wade.

    Don't look now but we could end up with Miami in the early rounds...

    There's something enjoyable with Riley taking over an overpriced team that he mortgaged the future for and it's not happenin' for them.

    I'm not worried about this team... they have a problem with foot speed (other than Wade & Posey).

    Now if the Pacers go down the pipe this season is complete :thumb:
