Between that and Rondo getting off for instigating a fight, Stern is failing.

2 games for Rondo was more than enough IMO. I like to see some more of that toughness come through. I don't want to see a return to the 80's, but I want some Heat/Knicks/Pacers type rivalries to bust out. Everyone in the league is too soft and each others friends.

The fine on the Spurs thing is something else. It is another reason why I can't wait for Stern to go. He has been out of touch since the Pistons won in 04.

Kevin Love purposefully stomped on Luis Scola and only got a 1 game suspension. I'm not saying Rondo didn't deserve the 2, but the league is greatly inconsistent with it's punishments. The Rondo fight (which was mostly pushing, by the way) wasn't as bad as it could have been and it'd only be a fine if it had happened at mid-court.

So the hornets owner wants to name the team something that represents Louisiana. Yeah thats right, he is going to change the name to New Orleans Pelicans. LOL. Thats the state bird for louisiana. Other ideas they had was New Orleans Brass, which i think sounds a lot better. Hell, it would have been better to name them New Orleans Voodoo. But i could see that as a negative name on the team for some people. Hopefully the Bobcats can then change back to Charlotte Hornets and get those classic jerseys back.

There's an Arena football team named the New Orleans Voodoo.

Honestly, whatever... the NBA has the Lakers (of Los Angeles, mind you), Celtics and Knickerbockers, which if you step back and strip away the history, would be written off as equally fucking stupid names if you attempted to introduce them today. If they can form a reasonably good team, people will get on the Pelican Hype Train or whatever they finalize.

I think New Orleans Brass just sounds the coolest.

They just haven't been consistent at all. They go from coming back to beat LA in the 4th to just getting smashed by Dallas. I don't think the Rockets have won a back-to-back game since the first two of the season :cry:

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

I can't believe Dallas was in the game considering they had 28 turnovers. As up and down as this team has been they have the potential to be pretty good. Hopefully Dirk is the cure for a lot of the teams negatives.

It's the only DAL game I've watched all season, but I'm pretty sure it'd be a BOS loss if Dirk was playing, even with the 28 turnovers. Mayo and Dirk could be a pretty awesome tandem.

For sure. We'll see if Mayo regresses, but right now, he's looking like the steal of the year.

Kobe almost gets a triple-double and Lakers still lose. Are they calling for D'Antoni's head in LA yet?

I heard something on sports radio the other day about a reporter in LA asking D'Antoni if the team ever practiced defense before games and the sound bite just had D'Antoni going OFF lol.

Kobe's was last great defensively at 21 and he's now 34, Artest is another year older (even if he's in better shape), LA's even worse on defense at PG and Gasol has clearly not been 100% this season (and neither is Dwight). Put those together and that's a recipe for disaster.

Nash will help them win some shootouts, but unless Gasol and Dwight get it together I don't think the Lakers will turn it completely around.

Not that I'm aware yet.

He said they practiced defense for 30 minutes the other day and the talking heads ate it up.

Rockets manhandled a quality Grizzlies team tonight. First team to put up more than a 100 on the Grizzlies since the first game of the season.

You can see the chemistry on the team growing with every game. It's good to see guys like Marcus Morris and Greg Smith stepping up too.

Speaking of Greg Smith....

Over Zach Randolph no less.

Nash returns tonight against the Warriors with 12 points and 9 assist in 42 mins. Hit a 10footer to put them up 3 in the final seconds of OT. Kobe need OT and 41 fga to reach 30 again for the 8 th straight game, now has 400 career 30 points. Also eighth staight game Kobe played 40+ mins. 41 Fga and no free throws attempts for Kobe besides a three secs T.

The Rockets had a pretty dominant performance in Chi-town tonight. The former Bull himself, Omer Asik, was 2 rebounds away from a 20-20 game. But it's once again that Beard-Sanity backcourt that continues to impress.

I thought the Rockets overpaid for Asik, but he's been solid this season.

Do Chicago fans really think this team will win a title in any season even after Rose heals? He's never going to be the same player. His game relies heavily on his explosiveness. He's not a great shooter. For a point guard, his passing isn't that great. Without another big player to step up beside Rose (hint: It ain't Deng, though he's a nice piece), this team isn't even close to being a title contender.

Oh I 100% agree. I believe the Rockets offered Asik the same kind of contract that they did with Lin that had a "poison pill" on the backend which discouraged the Bulls from matching the offer. Like you mentioned though, he has been very solid so far. Asik is actually averaging about the same stats as Joakim Noah while also playing less minutes.

EDIT:And now that I read the rest of your post lol.....I pretty much agree with the rest of what you said as well. To Rose credit though, his shooting was still improving until he got hurt.

I don't recall any player who had the same speed/explosiveness after an ACL tear. Baron Davis, Chris Webber, Tim Hardaway, Brandon Roy, Shaun Livingston, and Michael Redd all suffered ACL injuries and none were the same since. However, that doesn't mean that Rose can get back to playing at an MVP-level. He may not be as quick and explosive as before, but he should still have great speed and an improving jumpshot to help him lead the Bulls
