A whole bunch of basketball was played yesterday, and that basketball included a whole bunch of incredible performances. Who had the best one?
Which performance was most impressive?

Is this even a question?
I totally missed Diaw having a 3double. Thanks.
Blake all the way. I was kind of surprised to learn 47 is the NBA season high though. Usually someone drops 50+ by now.
Didn’t John Wall have a 19-15-15 game?
Come on, guys. I’m a fan of Rose, Amare, and The Griffin but only 6% got Diaw’s back on this? I mean, I’d much rather see Griffin, Rose and Amare get theirs (in that order), but I would have bet money that ol’ Boris would have been the least likely to drop number like that out of the whole crew.
naw John had 5 rebounds…still had a great game minus the turnovers. But yeah you can’t argue with 47 pts on 19-25 shooting…but Imma say one thing, that was the ugliest high-output night ever. He couldn’t miss but dang does shot look terrible, and dang did he look off balance on some of them post moves. That just goes to show you how much of a beast he’s gonna be when he gets a little more season on him. He had a Lebron night
@LA Huey.. exact reason why i voted for boris..
The Black Rick Kamla: My bad, NBATV misreported his stats then. Seven turnovers too, ouch!
My man Lamarcus Aldridge had a big night too. Where’s the love?
LA Huey: to be honest, after the season that Diaw got MIP, people thought he could follow up that year with similar numbers. He averaged 6.9 rebounds, 6 assists and 13 points. He was a near triple double threat everynight. Needless to say that never came. Not a knock on the guy though.
amare had a 41 point game on 25 shots in 34 minutes he gets my vote hands down.
@niQ, I know what you’re saying but we’ve all adjusted our expectations. Kinda like if the top vote getters for MVP this season were Rose, LeBron, Dirk, and Vince. We wouldn’t be surprised if we kept our expectations from 10 years ago but in 2012, it’d be a shocker.
why people be flexin on my boy joe yall sleepin on them atlanta hawkz dont forget bout them lookin to upset a couple teams belive dat
I vote Diaw’s triple double ’cause that came outta nowhere.
@Tyquez team won’t be the same without Mike Woodson. 1 and done
