    There are nights when Lebron looks like he’s lost a step or two since his Cleveland years. And then there are nights like last night, when he looks like the most athletic player in the league. When he feels right, there’s still nobody who can jump higher or move faster.

    As for Griffin: it’s time to admire his strengths rather than obsessing about his weaknesses. His game has become really diverse, and with Chris Paul out he’s dominating like few thought he could. Right now he definitely looks like a top-10 player.

    Couldn’t agree more. Blake Griffin has been on a tear and I know we on SLAM have given him a lot of sh*t for his lack of skills but he’s been ripping it up all season and he’s been a joy to watch.

    The block by Birdman was clip worth to me. Birdman is on the cusp of being a true ‘ol’skool’ player, & back then true shot blockers like Zo, Mutumbo know you go at trying to create highlights on your squad. Its understood that you may get posterized, but as a rim protector you just do your job and let the chips fall where they may.

    That was the most entertaining game I’ve seen this year. It was just a joy to watch. LeBron and BG were great, but also Jamal Crawford was going crazy from all over the floor. And also seeing Shane Battier dribble/do anything besides shoot 3s is always a show.

    As a Laker fan that would be absolutely terrible. Unless Exum/Parker/Wiggins are acquired along with possibly Melo.

    What does Gay give you that Crawford doesn’t already provide?

    Lebron looked like he was back in cleveland athletically last night.
