Thunder are going to have the best player on the floor against all but one team, so they'll always be in the mix. They're playing good ball, and guys are figuring out their roles. They're fun to watch, I generally root for them against most teams.

Good game on TNT. Melo-less Knicks up by 10 on the Heat.

KevB 12-06-2012 09:07 PM

Funny to watch. Knicks are chucking from 3 and knocking them down over and over. Heat don't know how to deal with them.

The Knicks might be for real. We'll see if they match up as well with Melo and Amare in the lineup.

Phil Jackson cant change Howard going 9-25 from the free throw line. The 2 previous losses before the win Howards free throw shooting had alot to deal with it. Cant go 1-8 from the line down the stretch. He nees to be hitting at least 60 percent. He has to get that FT shit fixed.

HIs motion is awful during games. if you look at it, he does everythign smooth til the release, then it looks like he's shotputting the ball rather then letting it roll off his fingers in a natural motion.

Sooooo apparently Dwight's already got one foot out the door:

Here we go again? Not likely. The Nets made their choice last summer and left Dwight Howard in Orlando. They moved on to Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, etc., etc. But with the Lakers disappointing (to be kind!), there are rumors out there that Howard is not set on signing with L.A.

Howard himself indicated that earlier in the week when John Denton, the Magic's in-house beat reporter, spoke with him. Asked what his goal is, he said it's always been a championship. "So if I have to play on another team or do whatever I have to do to get one, that's my goal. This is my passion, so I'll continue to fight."

Now, in a chat, ESPN's Chad Ford suggests that Howard, who famously left the Nets at the altar back in March, still wants to play for them. "He's made that clear," notes Ford, without letting readers know his sourcing.

So hard to predict what Dwight Howard is going to do. He seemingly changed his mind every week last season. LA is just a great market for him. He's going to get healthier. The keys to this team will be his soon. He still would prefer Brooklyn. He's made that clear. But right now there is now clear path for him to get there. Dallas and Atlanta are both options, but not sure either team can offer him all of the non salary benefits the Lakers can.

We're reaching for our blood pressure meds.

That didn't take long.

Dwight's a douche. He and LA deserve each other.

Bullshit.

Nets were his prefferred spot, everyone knows that, he also knows no matter what, he cant go there. Not when he's going to be a free agent and Brooklyn has no cap space. He can sign for the MLE though if he wants.

Exactly. There's literally no way he can go there. And plus, he's not giving up 30 million by leaving LA.

I wonder why a lot of big men do that. It seems like they just try to force the ball in instead of trying to just make it.

I understand that having bigger hands makes it harder, but I still don't understand how having big hands forces them to push the ball out instead of naturally shooting it.

Good lord Novak is pure

-King- 12-06-2012 09:43 PM

If it wasn't official before, it's official now. Knicks are by far the best team in the East.

Go try to shoot a tennis ball on a regulation basketball goal. Obviously a bit extreme, but demonstrates the effect of big hands/little ball.
