Worthy of Your Attention

by Marcel Mutoni

Lots of good games to get you through the weekend, let’s take a quick peek at a select few …

Bulls @ Celtics: Derrick Rose, I would like to introduce you to the Celtic D. I’d suggest that you take copious notes, young man.

Spurs @ Blazers
: The second leg of the NBA’s promotional plan to showcase Greg Oden against many of the League’s best big men. Whoops!

Cavs @ Hornets: Has a fanbase ever started MVP chants during the first week of the season in a convoluted attempt to sway the voting media? Tune in tomorrow night to find out.

Memphis @ Chicago: Another certified League Pass banger.

Philly @ Atlanta: Two young, exciting teams that should – should – have a major say in the East playoff picture.

Lakers @ Nuggets: Denver will be looking to stop the Laker juggernaut with their newfound defense (stop laughing!).

Enjoy the games everyone. And be safe out there.

    Sorry but I can’t stop laughing. Denver and defense doesn’t even belong in the same sentence

    Memphis vs. Chicago is gonna be the game of the weekend. Mayo vs. Rose. Hell yeah.

    This is dangerously exciting. I hope people don’t forget to vote tuesday with all this NBA excitement. I mean, you know how stupid Americans can be sometimes……………..
    patiently waiting for the onslaught! Lol

    Marcel hates the Pistons.

    @Tad: Congrats on sealing up Jason.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Thanks. Our young core is looking good.

    O.J. is going to score 20…on thirty shot attempts. Dude, you are not supposed to shoot more than the real star player, Rudy G-money. c’mon rook. slu.

  • http://heavyasheaven.blogspot.com Kid Presto

    Rodney Stuckey is the truth man. Pistons are looking good. and TAD, I actually just re-made the Pistons logo in honor of you for my business notepad in Desktop publishing. slu.

    the greg oden hype machine is out of control…did anyone see that on tnt, when they listed the scoring leaders…they listed oden as a scoring leader with 0 points…..hmm

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Oh word. I need to see that my man.

  • Sparker

    should but won’t

  • niQ

    denver and defense are 2 different worlds

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    @Tad: If I’m Joe, if the Pistons don’t win a ring this year I clean house as far as Chauncey, Rasheed, and maybe Rip goes, while I can still get something back for them. I’m not Joe though.

    winners r going 2 b

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    B: Um, Sheed is a free agent after the year anyway. Chauncey and Rip aren’t going anywhere unless Joe gets a better offer than he did this offseason.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    Didn’t know that about Sheed. I’d probably keep Rip and if I could get a top 15 pick in the draft for Chauncey next year I’d take it. I wouldn’t trade Tayshaun though…unless that SJax thing heats up again.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Tay>SJax. At least to me he is.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    I hope Holly doesn’t bash me for that last comment.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    TAD:I agree with you on that one.If I was Dumars,I wouldn’t do it.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    if i was Joe, i wouldn’t be a plumber.

  • http://www.sprint.com/sero Dma

    no, JoeD needs to keep ‘Sheed. Decent shooting guards come by all the time. It’s the good big men that are rare. Plus, ‘Sheed probably has less trade value to the rest of the league than Rip.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    sorry i was trying to irrelevantly funny.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    Hi Albie.It’s ok,I chortled.

  • Diggy

    The celtics vs. the bulls game should be interesting. Also bulls vs. grizzlies is gonna be suprisingly good.

  • http://www.slamonline.com James the balla

    And yeah they have … first game the Lakers played they were saying MVP for Kobe!! Lebron and Chris have to go past Kobe. I hope you realize they arent the best yet, they have years to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://joebasketball.blogspot.com Joe

    Can’t wait til the hornets game, should be interesting to watch this year’s MVP.

  • md

    Could all you Americans please Vote For Obama do the world a favour. I think both paul and lebron are better than kobe currently take kobe of the lakers and put one of those too on and the lakers dont get worse

  • Anton

    it’s such a good day when the Spurs lose


    cant wait to see atlanta play portland – two young teams on the rise.

  • j.e

    can’t wait till denver brings the lakers down to earth!

  • Anton

    ^^epic lulz

  • WhaHuh

    the SLAM guys knew Melo would cut his hair

  • tealish

    CP3 is on course to repeat as MVP.

  • tealish

    Maybe he even goes home with the hardware this time.

  • mike

    It’s a good thing boston didn’t keep Posey. That guy sucks.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Yeh Posey is so overrated. He couldn’t do anything right in the last few minutes of the game at all.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    OJ is my fav rookie this year….unless DJ AUGS gets a start or 5.

  • Bubba Chuck

    yall c melos hair? it didnt help him. it actually hurt him. he played better w/tha cornrows

  • http://www.slamonline.com James The Balla

    @ j.e. …. what was that about denver??

  • dubya816

    Hahaha Denver with washed up Iverson and the newly fatter version of Carmelo and the loss of Camby with defense? Good joke Denver now let’s be serious. Iverson is still gonna get 32 points a game but who else can score on that team besides Carmelo and JR? Terrible team, terrible players, terrible defense….. still. They’ll be lucky if they see the playoffs.

  • Anton

    @Hursty – umm…what? he owned in the clutch

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Melo cut his hair?

  • Anton

    yup, he now looks like he plays – a 5 year-old

    Anton= Epic fail.
