gotta feel for Rockets, if that deal had gone through they would have had twin towers in the Gasol brothers.

Bynum is so over rated. He hasnt really done shit in the NBA his entire career. A career 10 ppg and 7 rebounds for a 7 footer that averages 25 plus minutes a game?

Unless you are one of those idiot potential guys then the guy is worthless. No one is going to want to trade for Bynum and Gasol beacuse Gasol is at the end of his career and Bynum is a very under preforming player. They will be lucky if someone takes them off their hands.


Exactly. The Magic have no reason whatsoever to trade Howard for them. Both teams would, actually, be worse off after the trade. The Lakers would lose all the (good) height they have, and still have absolutely no depth (they'd have to take Hedo too) and the Magic would have an immature and overrated center and an "I'm going over the hill soon" power forward.

gotta feel for Rockets, if that deal had gone through they would have had twin towers in the Gasol brothers.


Rockets were never going to get Marc Gasol after the Grizzlies did so well last season. He was a RFA and they were going to match whatever offers came his way. Pau was ripped from their hands though, which is a shame.

So excited for Bulls @ Lakers! The NBA has been gone for far too long.

Can't wait to see Rip in his first official game as a Bull. I'm expecting big things from him this season and hoping he is the missing piece for the Bulls to reach the next step.
Tomorrow schedule

Celtics Vs. Knicks
Mavericks Vs. Heat
Bulls Vs. Lakers
Magic Vs. Thunder
Clipper Vs. Warriors

Its going to be a great fucking Christmas!:drool:

I love how Miami is straight up embarrassing Dallas. If James and Wade had played like this in the Finals they might have actually won a ring together.

Dallas looks like they need about 15 games together before they start clicking on all cylinders. Too many new pieces to think they are just going to get off to a smoking hot start like they did last year.

I think I'd blame it more on old age than unfamiliarity. It's going to take them awhile to get into top playing shape.

My man D. Rose is the MAN, hitting the winning shot. I was jumping up and down like crazy after that.



Massive Bulls fan here so I was happy.

I will agree with you there. They just need time to play together and everything should click again.

Yeah I know it was Kobe's fault. In the final 20 sec. kobe had the ball passed the halfdourt line, he didn't need to pass the ball you could've let the time expired game over if they didn't foul. Coach Brown still suck

You'd be pissed if you got blatantly fouled on the game winning shot and then the scrub who fouled you started talking shit too. Bill Walker always steps over the line when playing the C's because they shipped him to NY when they sucked ass. Now they're all big because they bought a few stars and he thinks he's king of the damn mountain.

Horrible reffing in most of the games I saw today.

Of course it was probably a foul but its the pot calling the kettle black, KG is the last person to try to get pissed about a non call and start something after all the times hes fouled someone and talked shit to them like hes some sort of goddamn saint. Nice to see the refs off to the usual awful start though. Could have sworn they changed the rule and stopped giving players a shooting foul for the whole jumping into players,jump through arms type of foul, yet ive seen alot of players today go to the line :roll:

Great to have the NBA back. Miami looks scary as hell but Dallas will gel as the season continues.

Might as well do it, finals prediction after day 1: OKC v. Miami with Miami winning the title

Thought this before the season btw, the game today didn't have an impact on the decision. Also while D Rose's timing of the 3's he took today was a little off, his stroke was as smooth as silk. That's scary if he continues to have that sick of a jumper... there will be no way to stop him.

QFT. I ABHOR Bynum, so freaking overrated. People still cream themselves over the 'potential', but seriously, he's an ape that uses his athleticism for really minimal production. He's showed SOME signs of breakout, but it's been 6 years, either he develops or doesn't. Considering his tude, I say not.

KG really gets me. Some of the stuff he does... Straight up thug. You could argue it's part of his 'passion', but I'd rather see that in production than barking like a dog. The media gets on his jock and actually PRAISES him for some of that shit, (those screens are CHEAP AS HELL), I call it pretty classless. He was mad he missed the shot, Walker was just a convenient alibi. Props to Walker and Davis for not taking Garnett's shit like that lol.
Finals: OKC V Miami/Bulls/NYC (seems like a copout but I could see either 3 getting hot come playoff time)
Winner: OKC if facing the Bulls or NYC. Miami beats them.
MVP: Durant

Damn Lakers looked terrible without Kobe on the floor tonight. Maybe Bynum will add some offensive but you can't expect much.:cry: It looks like as though they're going to have a tough time coming together as a team with this roster.

I would not pencil in Miami yet. The thing is, EVERYONE continues to put Lebron James team in the finals as him winning the championship due to how well he's playing. But every time he's in the finals or in the 2nd or 3rd round, he'll have those times he fails the carry the team and ends up choking. He's been doing that WAY too many times now. It's why he can never win a championship because he never successfully carries the team on his back every game.

Good game from Turkoglu last night. Magic can have a good season if he can play at that level consistently like he did in 2009.

Best game I've seen so far was the Miami Dallas game...it was just so fun to watch a team play as well as the Heat did that night.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Sorry to say but that was not a good game. Miami played great but Dallas looked awful. They followed that up with a worse performance last night against Denver. So what does that really say about Miami?

So Von Wafer slashes in the first game cleanup time (9 points, 100% shooting) so now he continues to get benched... The Van Gundy way.

The big question is will we ever see Daniel Orton? Howard off the court really scares me about this team since they play Big Baby as a Center. Biggest mistake trading Gortat.

It'll get worse before it gets better. Van Gundy will start to make him only shoot 3s and he'll start to lose that slashing way.

Man that Bulls/Warriors game was ugly last night. Bulls played like complete shit. You know when Boozer, who is your teams supposed second scoring option scores only 6 pts your in for a long night.#-o

The positive from that game was at least Luol Deng had another good game. Deng = Mr. Consistent at the moment.

I get looks of blasphemy whenever I say this, but I seriously think he's their best player (certainly most versatile). Atleast until Rose gets a good jumper that is.

As a long time Kings fan, it's bad to say, but last nights win is the only win I need this year. Kobe is becoming a poison to the Lakers, his % was terrible and his attitude seems to be getting worse.

Just saw the KG/Walker incident again on TNT and I just noticed that Walker pushed KG right after the buzzer before KG did anything. Yup, KG is the scumbag in that altercation. :roll:

A lot of whistles early on in the C's/Heat game.
