    Dafq is this supposed to be?

  • Hursty

    As a Rockets fan, watching Jeremy Lin last night was like headbutting a knife. That much fun. Patt and Harden played well, Parsons is on track for MIP, but I think Mayo basically has that locked up already.

    Welcome to
    the new NBA season Indiana!

    In the second half we saw the Paul George we wanted to see this season,
    knocking down a bunch of three’s and getting out in transition.

    Holy crap, Robin Lopez got his stuff rejected like 10 times lol.

    -

    The Bobcats are the clutched team in the NBA right now.

    I loved Biyombo’s reaction after his block on Derozan.

    Kyle Lowry is a fantasy monster.

    -

    I love Kyrie but does he really makes his team better?

    -

    Splitter has improved.

    -

    Poor Wizards.

    -

    Henson finally did something but yeah Lebron killed him in the end.

    Sam Dam playing like a guard with that 3 and between the legs pass lol.

    -

    Sup with Dwight going just 2-4 from the field? I didn’t see the game.

  • Drig’r

    Dwight looked dog tired. Same with Pau. Kobe was the only guy who was balling his ass off on the 2nd night of a B2B.

  • KipSmithers

    Patterson’s played really well. I’m sure coming back from an injury hurt him last year.

  • Ben Osborne

    Word up, Pete! We’re thankful to have you doing the Post Up and know you’ll be back at it next week. I’m falling in love with the Bobcats.

  • Max

    I see, but still only 4 shots tho?

  • Junior Taylor

    Things are not going to end well in LA if Howard has many more 4 FG attempts nights.

  • Caboose

    1. The Lakers need work. Badly. The pressure is on, D’Antoni.
    2. Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, and Dwyane Wade get WAY too many superstar calls.
    3. Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan have both really worked on their fundamentals this offseason.
    4. Call me crazy, but Timmy does look better than he did last season. He’s looking like the Spurs’ first option now.
    5. Overrated players: Kyrie, Cousins, Jamal Crawford, Lin, Love, Holiday
    6. Underrated players: Chuck Hayes, Jameer, Splitter, Jennings, Lowry, Aminu
    7. Vasquez is still my pick for MIP. #2 is Redick.
    8. The Wiz will be A LOT better when Wall is back. They desperately need someone who can pass. AJ Price doesn’t count.
    9. What on earth happened to Steve Nash’s leg? It was supposed to be a one week injury at first…I swear the Phoenix training staff is legendary for a reason.
    10. ROY will come down to Lillard/MKG/Davis. It’ll sure be fun to watch.

  • Caboose

    Gotta agree with this. The attitude of Kemba and MKG actually is rubbing off now.

  • Caboose

    Give Chuck Hayes credit, dude was single covering Dwight whenever he was in and doing a damn good job of it.

  • Caboose

    Chuck Hayes shut him down. As strange as that sounds, I watched the game and Chuck never needed a double team and basically forced Dwight to pass out of the post A LOT.

  • Max

    Wow, well Chuck Hayes shows once again he’s a defensive beast for someone that small.
    I love that dude’s game.

  • Max

    MKG is a winner!

  • Max

    Timmy definetly looks better than last season, way fresher leggs.
    What about Harrison Barnes if he can become a little bit more consistent?

  • The Fury

    Add Chandler Parson in the MIP and underrated list.

  • Caboose

    Everyone deserves a holiday sometimes.

  • Conor

    LAL looked like they’d taken a ride in a time machine back to 2006 last night. Pathetic, outside of Bryant & Meeks.

  • OTB

    How is Kevin Love overrated?

  • Comment_System

    that SHOULD HAVE been a knicks W. But for some extremely stupid reason, melo does not get any calls going his way during that time (where lebron or durant would have). The 360 layup to the floor was an and 1 and chris kaman punching him in the air was a blatant foul.

  • Comment_System

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE + THE SLAM STAFF.

  • elmaar

    Looks like Bobcats hit the jackpot with coach Dunlap.

  • elmaar

    He plays bad man to man defense, little to none help defense. Outside of rebounding, he is a bad defender. And he does not command double teams. Right now he is a stats guy. That’s it.

  • elmaar

    Did anybody notice how Thabo did Chris Paul? And how Paul complained?
    And Westbrook can d up any point guard in the league if he wants to.

  • Ben Osborne

    Thank you Caboose! Well said.

  • Peter Walsh

    Appreciate y’all for the opportunity!

  • Caboose

    You’re whining about Melo not getting calls? That’s a bit like complaining that Rondo doesn’t get enough assists.

  • KipSmithers

    Have to agree!

  • KipSmithers

    Just imagine if he were 3-4 inches taller! He’d be a double-double machine!

  • Dagger

    I knew he was good when Rosen ranked him as the worst coach in the league.

  • Drig’r

    And you don’t think it had something to do with Dwight’s fatigue??? This is only his 2nd B2B this regular season. And this one happened after that ridiculous night vs Brooklyn when almost all starters played waay too many minutes.

    Hayes did a good job of guarding Dwight. But I believe it had more to do with LA’s frontcourt’s fatigue rather than good D. One look at our defense vs Brooklyn and that vs Kings is all that’s required to come to that conclusion.

  • Max

    Remember the good old days when point guards guarded point guards?

  • demack

    I was going to say the same thing about Barnes, but I don’t think he will get the edge simply because he isn’t the star/face/or carrying the team. But dude has been balling these last 3-4 games. Parsons is definitely on my radar for most improved . Also I would have to say Vasquez, Batum, Walker and a couple more.

  • elmaar

    Stopped reading foxsports a few years ago. Yeah Rosen was epic.

  • elmaar

    I can’t remember any point guard whining about not being guarded by a point guard.
    I think it’s always been about winning by any means necessary.

  • SirGrey

    Seems like Love will be “overrated” until his team gets National televised games.

  • Caboose

    Or starts winning with him in the lineup.

  • SirGrey

    What are your expectations, really? There is no PF in the NBA with a matched or worse team that makes his team win more games. Yeah, he’s bad on 1-on-1 D, many players are. Once you don’t label him a superstar, he is rated well. Everyone crowns Rubio as if every playoff team doesn’t need a good PG.
