    He was wide open, but still, from that distance an amazing shot.

    How old is Dallas? REAL old...
    Marion - 33
    Vince Carter - 34
    Haywood - 32
    Dirk - 33
    Kidd - 38
    Terry - 34
    Odom - 32
    Cardinal - 38

    I saw Vince Carter get blocked tonight on a drive where he stopped in the lane to take a 3-4 foot jump shot.
    Remember when you used to jump over French people? Now you're taking 3 foot jumpers and getting stuffed. Retire already.

    The fact that he was that open, at that time, with 1 second left, losing, and from that distance, is what makes it an amazing shot. Yes he was wide open, but he shouldn't have been.

    All the "Old" teams don't look good so far. Not sure if it's coincidence to the lock-out or not, but I expect them all to eventually go on a 8-2 run and be fine.

    Celtics are old as shit as well. For the Celtics, I think it'd be good if the rumored Rondo for Westbrook happened. And for OKC

    I'd rather keep Westbrook. Even if he is a ball-hogging narcissist.

    Yeah, but is it going to work all season? Seems like it's destined to explode somehow.
    He was also my first round pick in fantasy, and hasn't really done anything except kill me in turnovers.

    That's because he leads the NBA in ball possession.

    Just remember, when they're losing, the team is "old". When the teams are winning, they're veterans.

    I think it has a lot to do with the lockout. I think the Mavericks have a championship hangover. But eventually they will get their shit together. Although Cuban probably doesn't care about this season anyway. He's waiting for the summer of 2012 so he can try to sign Dwight Howard and/or Darren Williams.

    The Celtics, I think their time has come. They're done.



    Westbrook and Durant already got into the other night. In the long run, I do think its going to work. If they don't make it to the Western Conference finals this year, I think they should try to get Rajon Rondo. He is definitely a better fit for the Thunder.

    And this is from the other night, but it's still funny watching him miss this.
    I can say with all certainty that I would have made this shot.

    timberwolves are 1-3, but they played good teams and didn't really get embarrassed by anybody, 4 and 3 and 2 point losses. They just spanked the Mavericks. Maybe they could be a 25 ish win team even with the shortened season?

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised by 25 Minnesota wins. Rubio, as a passer, is already top tier; he just needs to score more.

    OKC/Dallas play again tonight, should be good. Dallas could go to 1-5

    I feel like the Rockets should be better than 9-7
    Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry are damn good, Scola is good, and even Dalembert has been good lately.

    I guess it's the fact that your all-white small forward tandem of Budinger and Parsons sucks, and there's no depth?

    Remember when Johnny Flynn was a 6th overall pick? Now he sits behind Goran Dragic on the bench
    Hasheem Thabeet, 2nd overall, plays in the D-League

    (I only know all this Rockets stuff because I somehow have Martin, Scola, Lowry, Budinger and Dalenbert on my 2 fantasy teams)

    The Knicks are abysmal this year but I'll still keep watching...Til I die. I'm following The Warriors also this year. Idn why noone follows Basketball here, everywhere else it's more popular then Hockey, you are all racist!

    I can't believe there is talk about trading Stoudemrie for Dwight Howard. They're just going to keep trying different combinations before realize Carmelo Anthony is the problem.

    Feeling good about Spurs this season with their only major losses being @Houston and @Miami, and their done with those teams for the regular season. The team core is "old" though with Duncan turning 35, Ginobli 34 and Parker 30 this year. Gonna be another rough postseason.

    I'm really hoping the Spurs can pull it out this year and win one more title.

    yeah the rockets roster is full of Adelman players, but I do love the Dalembert signing, and he seems to be getting better each game.
    I wasn't impressed with the Mchale hire at first, but I love how he preaches defense....and Lowry has become a pretty good PG. Martin
    is finally adjusting to the offense, and Scola plays 110 percent all the time, love Scola!
    As far as Budinger goes, seems like he doesnt fit in the offense at all and lost his job to Parsons who i've been impressed with for a rookie
    yeah I was reading a story this morning about all the lottery picks we have and most of them wont be tendered a 4th year option. I do hope
    we resign Courtney Lee though! and Dragic i've loved since he was with Phoenix!
    10-7!!!

    Andrew Bogut is officially the new Mr. Glass. I don't think that guy has yet to play a full season.

    Also on my fantasy team... He and that Italian girl Andrea Bargnani are killing me.

    Andrew Bogut, Australian for pussy?

    He has played a whole year twice though.
