For brief glimpses now he's starting to look like Ron Artest did about 8-9 years ago when Ron was in his prime. He's not there yet but he's looking really good.


Can an imaginary core of prime-Artest/poor-man's-Ibaka/Udoh/Henson/Jennings/Harris/Lamb/return-for-Ellis-andor-Ersan be a contender?

No

But after tonight's game it does make me frustrated on all the obvious personnel moves we whiffed on or should have initiated over the last four years. That Bogut for Harden/Ibaka thing from two years ago, even if the Thunder just parted with Harden, which I think they would have easily done back then before they dealt for Perkins. Or Ramon/Potsie for Mike Conley or Ramon for Lee/Gallo or 18 million other moves.

Put Harden and Pau on this team and we are legit contenders. Obvious comment I realize, but not every team could just add those two guys and contend. I think we could.

I went with LRMAM because of how he began and finished the game.

The first half of the first quarter was awesome. He played great defense on Lebron and showed some offense I didn't know he had. His hustle and effort set the tone for this victory.

Jennings doesn't get enough love on these boards for how little he turns the ball over. Playing 40+ mins with such a large role like he has and not turning it over is insane.

To be fair, he doesn't have a lot of opportunities to turn it over. His pick and roll game is non existent, as is his drive and dish. All he does is swing the ball around the arc with the occasional pass into the open man. It's nice he's not a huge turnover machine, but when your point guard really doesn't do a whole lot to aid in setting up people that is just as big of a problem.

Dang, why does every thread have to be a bitch fest?

The Bucks just whip the champs- hey, let’s bellyache & power whine about what maybe could have been- yay!

Awesome game by the boys,so great to smash the Heat. I went with Larry in this one as his energy sparked us when we started to go into that 3rd quarter lull, close second Luc though.

Went with Luc for forcing Lebron into a few Kobe type rubbish shots in post ups. :D

Luc, but wow to the steals by Jennings, Monta, and Dunleavy of all people, and a great all-around game by Larry. Just have to give everyone props in this one. Ersan and Ekpe were the only negative performers on the whole team.

I voted for Jennings, but Luc did a awesome Job on Lebron and on the offensive end made Battier want to cry.

Your right about Jennings - he's not really the creator that Ellis is either. Although Ellis gets himself in trouble taking to far into the teeth of the defense, he does dish out a lot more easy under the basket layups then Jennings. I'm not saying Ellis is a PG either, just making that observation.

Monta does all the things you want to see except executing. He can make a pretty pass but it rarely lands where he thinks it's going to. He has the vision and ability to do it, but he just can't for some reason.

Assists at rim:
Monta 2.7
Jennings 2.6

Huge difference.

It would be nice to see the turnover counterpart to that. I'd bet Monta's would be up near 2 where Jennings would be almost non existent. He doesn't turn it over much when he gets in there, now being blocked on the other hand...
