Post Up: Lakers Drop the Ball

Bobcats send Kobe & Co. packing.

by Adam Figman | @afigman

Charlotte 109, L.A. Lakers 89

Here’s an interesting stat: The Lakers have a winning record against every team in the NBA, except the Celtics. And the Bobcats. Yep. Weird. Guess the Bobcats just have the Lake Show’s number, and last night they proved it, running all over Kobe and friends behind Gerald Wallace (20 points, 11 boards) and the suddenly-improving Gerald Henderson (18-4-4). The Cats were efficient, shooting 51.2 percent from the field and 80.2 percent from the line, and did just about all you need to do to beat a team like the Lakers. If they can duplicate that against all of the League’s elite, they might be onto something here.

San Antonio 102, New Jersey 85

When they began this nine-game road trip with the best record in the League, the Spurs seemed bound to fall off–that’s what lots of consecutive away games do to veteran squads that may or may not be overachieving. Yeah, no. This easy win over the Nets pushed the team’s record to 6-2 since leaving San Antonio, solidifying the group’s status as a legitimate Finals threat. Manu Ginobili led them last night with 22, while DeJuan Blair went for 10 and 11 in the victory.

Atlanta 94, Detroit 79

The Pistons came out hot, hitting their first 6 three-pointers, but ATL took it from there. Josh Smith scored 27 and grabbed 14, as the Hawks won for the first time in three games. This was their first contest of a road trip that continues through All-Star break, and the next stop is NYC where they take on the Knicks tomorrow. The loss was Detroit’s third straight.

Milwaukee 102, L.A. Clippers 78

Yo, come on. Last night had more blowouts than an episode of…OK, too easy.  After three neck-and-neck quarters, the Bucks made moves in the fourth and ran away with it. Carlos Delfino was great, putting in 27 and drilling 7 threes, while Blake Griffin was “held” to 19 points and 12 boards.

Portland 95, Minnesota 81

I think this much is official: The Blazers, and LaMarcus Aldridge, are red hot. LA scored 21, while Portland won its fifth straight, upping its record to 31-24. Despite the loss and little other positive news for the TWolves, Kevin Love managed 12 points and 11 rebounds, meaning the double-double streak is up to 41. Crazy.

Houston 121, Denver 102

I was holding out hope that this would be the one really good tilt yesterday. And…dammit. After a solid first quarter, Carmelo Anthony (who scored only 16) and the Nuggets fell off, and the Rockets went to work. They outscored Denver 69-36 over the next two quarters, cruising from there and allowing the team’s bench to see some action in the final few minutes. Seven Rockets scored in double figures during the W.

Actual Stats: Josh Smith: 27 points, 14 boards, 3 dimes, 3 steals, 1 three-pointer.

Last Call: Both a new look and a new crazy circus shot from Brandon Jennings. Check it:

    The Lakers were incredibly imposing last night.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jahmai

    Wow, really crappy games last night, usually there’s atleast one matchup that looks good on paper. Looking forward to Heat-Pacers tonight, the last game was very entertaining, Pacers are fun to watch when they’re on. LeBron is even more fun to watch when he goes for one of those 40 point triple doubles.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Royal

    Bobcats own the Lakers ……..SMH

  • Mike From Spain

    I went to bed thinking ‘LOLcats, easy game…’ and I wake up to the NBA.com headline ‘Bobcats claw Lakers’. WTF? What happened there? Horrible 3 pt shooting, Gasol and Artest top in assists for the team with 5 each, is this one of the misteries of the triangle or the sign that players at the PG spot have to go?

  • Riggs

    that stat is surprising, is it true? bobcats have won the last 8 of 9 against the lakers?

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Aren’t the Lakers 0-1 vs the Heat and 0-1 vs the Magic? How do they have a winking record over them?

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Disregard the last comment. I see what he meant. That was an ugly night of basketball all around.

  • http://www.redraidersports.com Nicolas Fleming

    @Caboose, I think it implies all-time record.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Nick Tha Quick

    Good thing Lakers will never face the Cats in the Finals!

  • whooo!

    the cats advantage over LA really is a strange one. But I feel like if you looked at LA’s record against teams only from ’04 onwards, you’d probably find other losing records too. sample sizes.

  • MUBWAR

    this Lakers sure don’t look like champions. I understand Dwight beasting Gasol Drew and LO. But seriously Nazr Mohamed and Kwame. come on now Jackson, just retire already with your pride like Sloan and Larry Brown

  • whooo!

    And seriously, how little respect does San Antonio get over here. The Post-Up was questioning if the Spurs had an inflated record after losing to Philly (bs), but a win against the lowly Nets is what finally solidifies them as contenders?!

  • CRAIG HILL

    I watched the game. It’s no mystery. There’s something about Charlotte. It’s as if they can read the Lakers’ minds. LA played em well in the 1st quarter, stuck to their game plan, were ahead in the qtr; played em OK in the 2nd, finished i think 4 points down at the half. In the 3rd, it’s as if dem Bobs could do anything they wanted. LA moved to block their path, they went around it like the lakes were standing still. And they did seem exhausted and slower. LA missed on Kobe shots, Pau shots, Shannon shots, Charlotte didn’t miss on theirs. This is a CONSISTENT outcome. No mystery, necessarily. Some teams just have another team’s number.

    Luckily Charlotte can’t do much against anyone else. If they ever met in the finals it’d be a 4-game sweep.

    Bye, Charlotte. See ya next season, twice only. No big whoop.

  • JTaylor21

    What new excues do Laker sheeps have now? I understand losing games in the RS but getting their a**es handed to them at home and away by avg teams that’s not a good look. Also someone needs to tell that snake to stop chucking so much and get the ball inside.

  • craig hill

    LA is building, albeit erratically, toward April. Last loss to SA was by one point. A loss, yes, but no Spurs domination.

    There’s enough history between these teams, 9 championships between em in the last 15 years, LA with 5. SA knows what’s ahead, a Western finals meat grinder. LA will go to SA in late May looking for a split of the first 2, game on.

    some people are just mad funny

    Spurs > Rest of the League.

  • http://blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/ Anthony

    I was surprised L.A got blown out twice, but hey, it’s still february. Still the same old stuff with the Lakers “we play horrible during the regular season so that everyone will doubt us come Playoff time” the good thing is, it wont work with Pop, they can lose 5 games in a row by 30 during the rs, we wont underestimate them if we meet in the Playoffs.

  • T-Money

    E: Aren’t you mad that Miami didn’t offer the vet min to Kwame Brown? On the defensive end, he’s mobile AND strong. Joel and Damps can only give us one of the two. Kwame would have been a monster defensively in Miami’s system. I’m not even joking. Maybe we can get Sammy Dalembert on the cheap if the Kings buy him out this week??? I need Joel to stop playing, it’s not good for my health. (and I’m from MTL!)

  • http://blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/ Anthony

    T-Money, the Heat already have Lebron, Wade and Bosh, can you guys please stop trying to upgrade this team ? It’s not good for my health.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Another Center that catch the ball? No thanks. Dalembert is intriguing plus he has ties to the Haitian community in Miami….he’s a definite candidate if he get’s bought out. I still contend that the Heat’s three problems are in this order 1) PG 2) Coaching 3) Center. The Heat are 25 million dollars under the 90 million the Lakers, Celts and Magic have spent on their rosters. Arison needs to open his wallet and take a hit to ratify at least two of them.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Eboy: Improve the center spot THIS season, improve coaching/PG the next season. With Wade/Lebron dominating the PG spot, it would be hard to implement a solid point during the season. It would be easy to implement a center.
    Of course, the Heat already HAVE Dampier sooo….

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    *can’t catch

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    They need a point guard that can shoot straight and defend. That’s not asking for a lot, Jukai. I’m ok with the center rotation…WHEN SPORON RUNS IT CORRECTLY!!!!! See how they all run into each other?

  • T-Money

    E: I really don’t care about a point guard to be honest. I want Mike Miller or Eddie House to be on the perimeter with Wade and James in the 4th quarter. Chalmers is fine for 15-20 minutes a game. It’s not a pressing need at all as far as I’m concerned. Sure, if we could get Billups I’d take it but I won’t bench Mike Miller to put Kyle Lowry out there. Center is a problem though since Spo refuses to play Damp. We look SO much better with him out there.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Eboy: I’m really fine with the Chalmers/House combo. One can defend, one can shoot straight— right now, that’s really all you can ask for. The Celtics don’t have a guy that can shoot straight and defend, neither do the Lakers, nor Chicago. ‘Sporon’ (nice) just needs a decent rotation and clearer roles for the points right now.
    I mean, the rotations have changed so much, why not give one line a chance instead of dumping it already? No need to keep shuffling things, this is the first damn year.
    The weak link is Joel Anthony.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    In other words, co-sign T-Money with the exception of his overdependence of Mike Miller.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    If Chalmers is ok and is one dimensional, Joel has to be given the same ok. Look, I don’t despise Joel like you do Jukai, I just think his limited offense takes away from the potential of getting points from the 5 spot on the floor. His D is really good for being outsized against almost everyone, he’s an exceptional offensive rebounder and blocks shots on help better than anyone on the roster. He’s an asset in the right matchup. I like Dampier, but I also don’t like that he’s really slow on rotations. He set’s great screens and has good hands on low block catches. Z is another guy, that in the right matchup, thrives/can thrive. He stretches the floor and just has to make his shots. That gives the Heat an advantage from the tip of each game. That’s why it would be important for the 1 spot to have a consistent, spot up shooter, so that all those open looks Arroyo, and now Chalmers constantly brick, can be asset possessions. And don’t oversell Chalmers D…he’s pesky, but he ain’t locking anyone down.

  • http://slamonline.com The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    KB is done!

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    The Heat (damn do we have to discuss them everyday) can get away with a center who is limited on offense, but with their slashers, they need a point who consistently hits open shots.
    Anyway, what do the Spurs have to do to become the favorites in the West? Can they do anything to make that leap, or do most people feel like the Lakers size advantage and overall talent will prevail once the Lakers get locked in?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Greg Poppovich has never coached San Antonio like this when they are a championship caliber team. I can’t buy into them as legitimate candidates until this new style is proven to work in the playoffs. Until then, they are the same team that got swept last season, except they aren’t pacing themselves like usual, and Poppovich has found a way to exploit the regular season, or adopted a style that wins in it.

  • JTaylor21

    The lakers size advantage is negated when their bigs don’t get the ball consistently. Any time bigs don’t feed the ball, they lose the energy to be physical, rebound and defend the paint. 15 shots combined for the best combination of bigs in the L is not going to cut it.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    JTaylor
    You didn’t answer the question. Are the Spurs the favorite in the West, or is it still the Lakers?
    Or do you prefer Dallas or the Thunder?
    Because, from what I can see, everybody thinks the Lakers are slumming, but most people still think they are the best team in the West.
    If Dallas had Caron, I would pick Dallas. If Duncan was still beasting for the Spurs, I would pick the Spurs. But neither of those things is true.

  • JTaylor21

    AllenP, I’m still leaning towards the Lakers making it out of the west but it won’t be as easy as everyone thinks. If SA’s backcourt can play well and TD plays like Prime TD in at least 2 playoff games vs LA then SA has a great chance at beating them. The problem with the lakers has nothing to do with them getting old or not be tough enough, it has everything to do with how many touches their bigs get during the game. If the laker’s backcourt decides to take a backseat and feeds their bigs consistently in the playoffs then LA will find themselves back in the finals for the 4th straight time. That’s a big IF.

  • Red Star

    The Lakers getting blown out by the Bobcats! Smh

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    @Eboy: Joel is far more one-dimensional than Chalmers. Chalmers can score a few freebies, make one or two reasonable passes when the floor is open. He’s going to struggle against the Celtics because they clog the floor a lot more but he shouldn’t be used as much since Rondo isn’t really that much of an offensive threat. Joel literally cannot score a bucket and he’s a walking turnover. You’re also vastly overrating his D: his offensive rebounding capabilities is overshadowed by how easily he is boxed out on defensive rebounds, and even though he can come out and iso on a smaller quicker player, he gets killed in the post. He’s really just awful. Dampier doesn’t switch as well, but other then that I can’t think of anything Joel does better. Is he really that much better of a shot blocker? I gotta question that. Anthony only averages a block and a half a game, that’s what younger Damp would give you, I think older Damp can give you around the same.
    @Allenp: I really disagree with this. Wade/Lebron draw so much attention when they drive that they almost always pull away defenders from the basket, and when Damp gets the minutes (+20), he gets four/six points on dishouts by a charging Lebron/Wade. Joel Anthony is so bad, when he gets those dishes, he has to gather himself and he doesn’t even have a chance to make a wide open basket.
    The Heat DO need a guy who can make the wide-open shots, but really, they have Eddie House, who else would help them better?

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Also, Spurs make it out of the West and unless there is an injury, it will be in five/six games each.

  • http://bet.com Nat Turner Jr.

    Sam Dalembert will be a Knick. He has ties to the Hatian community in New York.

  • http://www.yahoo.com The Fury

    Spurs win a lot of games eventhough their top 3 players plays less than 30 mins a game and yet people are still downplaying what they can do in the playoffs. These guys are battle TESTED for crying out loud. Acknowledge them, please. As Rudy once said “do not underestimate the heart of a champion”.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    The Bobcats have had some pretty good wins the last few weeks.
    They’ve beaten the Bulls (twice), the Lakers, the Hawks and the Celtics.
    They face the Bulls again tonight, and Bulls better crush them this time around.

  • http://www.yahoo.com The Fury

    @nbk..most of them were injured last year, so no they’re not the same as you were implying. But aight let’s see come May.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Here’s a change of subject: what do the LAKERS need?
    Cause on paper, I still think they have a really good team, but they just aren’t clicking.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Celtics went 27-27 to finish the season last year and trade rumors swirled the team. Lakers are still 38-18. With little competition in the West besides San Antonio who may struggle with their style of play in postseason and are mediocre defensively, they still have a GREAT chance to make it to the finals and could still have homecourt in finals. But they do need some help in the backcourt with another shooter but Barnes will help out a lot when he returns.

  • JTaylor21

    Jukai, the lakers need that drill sergeant from the geico commercial to smack some sense into their guards to force the ball down low and stop chucking low percentage shots from the perimeter. Where is R.Lee Ermey when you need him.

  • JTaylor21

    When did hell freeze over? Barnes’ a shooter.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    He’s not a shooter but he’s a much better spot up shooter than Artest or Walton and better player period.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    I also don’t understand why Odom doesn’t get more time at SF and get Smith, Ebanks or Caracter more time at PF. It’s time PJ gets some blame for not utilizing his personnel correctly especially when the starters claim to be so fatigued.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Kap: Between Fisher (old and ineffective but a vet), Brown (super athletic but sometimes doesn’t show up) and Blake (great floor leader but has been unimpressive shooting wise and defensively), who would you give up for a good spot up PG?
    Also, would you totally replace Artest for Barnes?

  • http://www.yahoo.com The Fury

    ..maybe he was saying Barnes will guard the shooters lol..but to the topic Jukai was asking, Jtay was right but the bigs still must commit of going all out every SINGLE game even when they get the ball or not.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    @Jukes…They have a huge trade exception that is worth 5mil they could use and without trading a player or trading one of their rooks. I’m not saying they should go after a big name but someone who can shoot like a Matt Carrol or Delfino. Also, after Artest was joking around after the loss like it was nothing last nite I would totally replace Barnes with Artest and/or just get rid of him. But hopefully his attitude and shot selection begin to change come playoff time.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Barnes was shooting the ball ok before he got hurt and even had a game where he was 6/6 3pt plus he’s a great offensive rebounder, slasher, and above average defender.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Kap: Interesting. You seem more intent on replacing the forwards, I think the guards need work. After all, you can always put Kobe on the small forward spot, I think the Lakers need a good two guard who can come in and shoot, or a one who can play the two. Hinrich or Dragic, perhaps?

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    R. Lee Ermey ain’t no damn “drill sergeant”.
    My dude was in the Marines, therefore he was a drill instructor.
    He’s cool as hell in person to. I’ve talked to him a few times.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    @yea I agree bc the two biggest weaknesses on the team are Fisher and Artest. Hinrich and OJ Mayo I think would be great for triangle bc of their size and shooting ability. I doubt LA makes a trade though.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Enigmatic: actually, he literally WAS a drill sergeant.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Jukai – umm, no he wasn’t.
    Drill sergeants are what they’re called in the Army.
    R. Lee Ermey served in the Marine Corps.
    Drill instructors are what they’re called in the Marines.
    Therefore, he was a drill instructor. He served in Parris Island, South Carolina for many years.
    Whoever wrote that Geico commercial obviously didn’t know the difference between the two, as mose people don’t.
    But to someone who served in the Marines it makes a world of difference.

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

    @Enigmatic: so what’s the difference?

    he’s pretty decent Jgay, he shoots around 30-35% and all the intangibles he brings are going to be big… and i know your just saying bs to spite lakers fans but do you really wanna see LA in a series tomorrow? i mean honestly?

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Lol @ Jgay

    the lakers bigs need to pin the post. they are not asking for the ball from a position stand point. they might want it but pin your guy and yell for the ball it’ll come.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    The Lakers are fine. Artest and Fisher are their weaknesses, but won’t matter, their length is too much in the playoffs.

  • Lake Show

    thats not fun to talk about tho NBK. the 2 time champs lost handedly to the bobcats… lets focus on that.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    If Boston or Miami are healthy, LA has to upgrade, or they will be the bridesmaid this year.

  • JTaylor21

    Jgay, whooo a very innovative and groundbreaking joke. Richard Pryor must be rolling over in his grave.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Enigmatic: What can I say, I’m pwned. I honestly did not know that.
    NBK: how can their length do nothing in the regular season but win in the post season?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    first and foremost the game slows down considerably in the post season, length has been king in may/june forever. And its the regular season, LA is to that point as a team that they just have to make it through the regular season, not dominate it, like Boston last year. Their issues are overblown, just like Miami’s 2 months ago, Dallas’ when Dirk went down, yada yada

  • JTaylor21

    Jukai, let me break it down in layman’s term for ya; LA bigs get the ball consistently= WIN, the serpent chucks 20+ shots+ = LOSS!

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    nbk dropping knowledge like women around the country were dropping their panties last nite.

  • http://bet.com hacksawyacstrawZwballs

    Only a true basketball fan would kno the answer 2 this one: who’s the winner of the 1987 skidman’s pollup resussitation? Two: When did the Lakers lose the RunYourTibby on the RunnyKind? Three, the Heat tied the game @ the last minute 2 which Zeebbawls sick joint?

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    nbk: Agree with the post-season-slowed-down comment, but I reallllly don’t like the “hey look at the Lakers in the past and how bad they were then” theory. The Lakers were the best in the league once, best in the west twice…. they’re now third in the west, sixth in the league… they’ve never been in this position before. The team has a lot different pieces who aren’t gelling.
    Plus, only ONE can team win a championship, incase anyone forgot. So yeah, nitpicking and overworrying is a bit common for teams who have the goal championship-or-bust.

  • http://bet.com hacksawyacstrawZwballs

    JTaylor21: doesn’t like women. Totally plays for the other team. Enigmatic: sellout lil midget man. Jukai: hit and run. Nbk: wet behind the ears know-it-all. Philosopher: BBR Lakeshow: corny Kobe lover!

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Well considering I have had LA losing in the finals all year now, i’m pretty confident. And your right, these Lakers have never been in this position, but then again Kobe has never been this old either, and when you win 2 titles in a row, go to 3 championships in a row, you would presumably be comfortable with your teams ability, knowing you only have to win 4 out of every 7 to win a championship, I think its not alarming they are only 20 games over .500 lol, Houston did this in 95, except they ended the season like 47 and 35 instead of 57 and 25 which is what LA is about on pace for now.

    And its not even the All-Star break, you don’t think we will see a more complete Lakers team then? I bet they do what San Antonio used to do after the break, and win like 22 of 26 to close out the last important weeks of the season. Just my assumption ofcourse

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    more like 16 of 20 my bad

    Why don’t ya click ur heels three times and go back to africa.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    @albie1kenobi – well, I’m obviously very biased because I served in the Marines, but the difference between a Marine Drill Instructor and the difference between an Army Drill Sergeant is like night and day.
    First of all, Army basic training is a lot easier than Marine recruit training, or boot camp.
    Army’s last 10 weeks.
    Marines’ last 13 weeks.
    Drill sergeants are a lot friendlier with their recruits.
    Drill instructors…well, if you’ve ever seen Full Metal Jacket, you kind of got a glimpse of what we went though.
    Our boot camp is a lot tougher and there’s a lot more emphasis put on warfighting techniques and survival skills than anything else. Whereas in the Army, only infantry are taught those skills.
    Anyways, I could go on but you get the idea.
    Back to basketball….ball.

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    I’m sorry my brethren, but what is “BBR?”

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    NBK: If Kobe can put on a Olajuwon-like performance (33-10-4.5 with one and three) in the Finals, they will be can win JUST like the Rockets.
    If the Lakers do go 16-4, obviously my worries are unfounded. If they’re going into the playoffs only having first-round homecourt advantage like they have now, they are in trouble.
    Also, did you know Hakeem had a playoff series where he averaged 37.5 and 16.8? F’ing balling!

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    “Sellout lil midget man”. LOL

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    37.5 and 16.8 fa real? No I didn’t, and no I also don’t think Kobe will have a Hakeem”esque” performance, which is part of the reason I have them losing in the finals. The rest stems from the other weaknesses

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Jukai, in what series did he average that?
    I’ma laugh out loud for real if it was against the Spurs the year Robinson won MVP.
    Hakeem destroyed him that series.

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

    “Plus, only ONE can team win a championship, incase anyone forgot. So yeah, nitpicking and overworrying is a bit common for teams who have the goal championship-or-bust.”
    Gold star for you, Jukai. that was on point.
    my position with lakers is, i don’t see any other team beating them 4 out of 7 times. plus, you think Kobe will let his legacy slip away? his first quarter vs the Knicks on Friday convinced me.

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

    @Enigmatic: I knew you were a marine, that’s why I asked. Much much much respect to armed force, you guys are incredible. I can’t even fathom going through the experience of being one.

  • http://sdfklf.com Jukai

    Enigmatic: no no, was much earlier during Houston’s first-round exit times.
    Hakeem’s crushing of Robinson was more on the level of, let’s say, 35.3 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 4.1 blocks on 55% shooting

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    @albie1kenobi – Thanks man. It was just my way of trying to give back to a country that’s done so much for me.
    Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), I never did get to go to Iraq or Afghanistan, which was the reason why I joined.
    I even joined up with an Anti-terrorism unit my last year in, but my number still wasn’t called.
    But hopefully I did enough to contribute.

    Ambassadors are rarely classy people, they are usually the kind who fcks the nanny when the wife is off to detox. True talk.

    Last year the Cavs where the best team in the regular season and in road to the championship. The Celtics where too old and where about to trade Ray Allen. Wake me up in May.

    @Enigmatic, I’ve been watching “Surviving the Cut” on Dicsovery, it’s basically all-access on the Marine training regiment, and man that sh*t was BRUTAL. I’ve never seen so many well built tough guys cry/faint/give up/hurt/bleed in 1 day. Much respect to you and your mates for getting thru that

    Damn, dampier is really showing me something. I rather have him out there than either Joel or Big Zombie. I still don’t know why he wasn’t out there vs Bos checking Perk. Pacquaio’s butler really needs to have a set rotation before the playoffs so everyone will know their roles.

    @melvin ely – I had never heard of that show, so I looked it up.
    That show’s actually about those trying to become members of the Special Forces community, you know, like Army Ranger or Marine Force Recon or Navy SEALS.
    Yeah, those guys go beyond hardcore. I knew a few Navy SEALS when I was stationed in Virginia. Cold as ice and tough as leather.
    I take my hat off to them cats, for sure.
    Especially Delta Force. Those are some baaaad motherf*ckers.

    @JTaylor – as bad taste as it might be in, I actually laughed @ “Pacquaio’s butler”. lol

    @ jTaylor21 I will soon as your mom gets off her knees and pulls my pants up for me, panzy.

  • JTaylor21

    Aye, say whatever you want to say to me. Just don’t be disrespectful, alright? I don’t give a f*ck what you say. If you’re disrespectful, it’s a problem.

  • whooo!

    Kenny n Chuck brought up this point about LA. Are they good enough to beat teams without homecourt? Easy yes. But would try have beat the C’s in Boston for game 7 last year? Now what if they have to play Dallas, San Antonio, AND Boston with no homecourt in any series? Homecourt looks a lot different when you see how it all adds up the longer LA goes on.

    Props to JTaylor, made me laugh out loud.

    Here is what I dont understand. Why is it so hard to have a conversation on this site that doesn’t involve insults and despicable humor? It isn’t about what people do to you it is about how you handle it.

    @Lake Show-I think the Lakers will pull it off. I will panic when they lose 4 games in the playoffs.
