Worthy of Your Attention

by Marcel Mutoni

Cleveland @ Detroit: James and the LeBronnaires (winners of eight in a row) visit Motown to take on the AI-led Pistons. This should be a great matchup.

King has done nothing so far to change the perception that he is, far away, the leading MVP candidate. And thanks to the Cavs’ new-found offense this season, it’ll be hard for anyone to wrestle that award away from him.

Chicago @ Portland: Two young, entertaining squads. Both teams will be looking to bounce back from tough losses, but you can expect plenty of storylines around the play of Derrick Rose and Greg Oden. Oden had a career night against the Warriors, and Rose even drew praise from Phil Jackson in L.A.

Toronto @ Miami: The Raptors wasted a masterful performance from Chris Bosh last night (40 points, 18 rebounds), so they better make it up to him as they march into Miami to take on D-Wade and the Heat.

Speaking of Mr. Wade, he shook off an ankle injury last night, and played well while leading Miami to a win over the hapless Wizards. Tonight, the task will be considerably tougher for Dwyane and his teammates.

    BEAST Rose vs. Greg Oden. I think I’m in heaven.

    Here’s to hoping D.Rose windmills the bejesus out of Oden.

    Cleveland at Detroit. Get your popcorn ready . . .

  • ciolkstar

    Bulls V. Blazers should be good, but I gotta admit I don’t enjoy watching the Blazers as much as I thought I would. The Bulls still suck but Derrick Rose is ridic.

  • ciolkstar

    I’m kicking myself for passing up on Chris Bosch in my fantasy league, he’s starting to look like the best young PF in the game. Amare is more explosive and Al Jefferson is more effficient on the block, but I think Bosch is more complete than either one right now.

    I hope Maxiell eats Boobie Gibson.

  • Bubba Chuck

    San Antonio @ Denver

  • Marv The Rig

    Yooo, AI gonna tear up them cavs, D Wade gonna drop 40 on them Raps… tear it up GO

    Enjoy watching Cavs-Pistons tonight-in June they’ll both be home watching the C’s win banner 18. D Rose is the real deal. Too bad he’s stuck on a roster with no real scorer to compliment him. Ben Gordon’s meant to be a 6th man.

  • Marv The Rig

    KobeWearsAPurpleThong –

    turn i up dawg. celts aint even gonna make the finals this year.

  • Quail

    Celtics aint winnin sh!t this year. they’ll make it to the ECF, but lose to the Cavs. then the Cavs will lose to the Lakers.

  • http://celtics.com KobeWearsPurplePanties

    @Quail and Marv: Yeah, that sounds good…Hey, what does “Marv the Rig” mean….?

  • http://thegayestwebsiteever.com Ben

    I don’t see the Lakers getting past anybody from the East. They just don’t play finals basketball.

  • http://www.sprint.com/sero Dma

    oden against joakim noah again..

  • http://celtics.com KobeWearsPurplePanties

    I agree Ben. Hey Dma, Oden hasn’t played against Joakim Noah….So whaddya talking about..?

  • http://celtics.com KobeWearsPurplePanties

    @Dma My bad-you mean in college-Florida vs Ohio State. Sorry Dma….

  • JE

    Either I’m just drawing a complete blank, or I really don’t know, but what does BA stand for in the box scores on nba.com?

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

    I just turned on the Bulls vs. Blazers game. Is that the real score?

    Although if this is the kind of scoreline needed for jarryd bayliss to get court time i would be angry if i was that kid…

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

    does steve blake look a little….’slow’ to anyone else…? his cancer is in remission which is lovely.

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

    Ike Diogu is 6’8″ and has a 7’4″ wing span..?!?!
    dang yo.

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

    this score has come about for three reasons…Derrick Rose ‘finally’ peaked out after 2 weeks of great rookie energy….Luol Dang is ALOT more valuable to this ball club than it seems…and Joakim Noah and Aaron Gray will need to learn how to play basketball before they get drafted next time…

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

    Hmmm that bayliss kid is kinda …unprepared for the NBA it seems…like when Eric Snow came into the league…he’ll be okay though give him about 4 seasons….

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

    Well the Greg Oden project has started to show some merits on early returns…If he’s going to keep rebounding well and be that defensive presence this team could compete for a top 4 place in the playoffs….Bulls had this lost by the 1st quarter, but your going to find that with your super-rookie playing his first back to back game scenario, he fell pretty far though… I wonder how this will play out in the rookie rankings hey?
    Go easy please….

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

    Maybe I could keep writing here on my own…? HELLOOOO…??
    Now I know how Moose felt in 9th grade.

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

    Bulls should’ve just stayed home and enjoyed the circus.

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