I predict that he will get hurt again, and this time is going to be worse. Torn labrums don't get magically better just like that with a week's rest.

I am hopeful that DeQuan Jones will develop into the player many wanted Liggins to become.

I like Jones better so far. Defense doesn't win championships anyway...

Everyone looks healthy when playing against the Cavs. He did look active out there though when the offense wasn't ran through him. The turnovers are still alarming and will really matter when they play against a legit team.

They broke our record. We scored 59 against the bulls last year.

59 points and the hawks would have only tied the record we set last season for fewest points scored by a bulls opponent instead of breaking it.

Jones plays SF(a position of need) and brings more athletisism/height and we had no use for Liggins anyway.
We need mainly scoring from the SG spot.

But how about Earlsanity.

Small sample size but if we only look at his games where he played 20 minutes or more his stast are pretty impressive actually.

5 games:

11.4PPG 10RPG 3.4APG 1.6BPG

He's no game changer but i would have prefered him over McRoberts.

Edit: those numbers maybe a bit inflated because the Lakers play at such a high pace

Looks like Dwight got less than a million allstar votes for the first time in his career when being voted to start. Would you guys attribute that dropoff to his injury/"slow" start or negative press from the dwightmare? Being in LA and on one of the most popular sports teams of all time, I figured he would easily break the 1 million mark.

Dwightmare. People hate him outside the Magic.

I'm listening to the Lakers game and the TNT guys just said, "if I was D'Antoni, I'd find a way to run more plays for Earl Clark.". smh

Reggie said "You have to put more pressure on a GREAT shooter like Earl Clark"......He should have been FIRED on the spot.

& not to mention that none of these guys know the rules of the league. Reggie & Steve saying they can't believe there wasn't an 8 second call because Wade wasn't completely across the half court line at 16?

Not the rule guys.....haha must be nice to just sit there & talk without knowing anything haha

dwight looks like a complete clown now instead of just acting like one. he looks like a dark-skinned drew gooden with that headband and those socks(?).

I wonder if people are still gonna use the "Dwight is injured" excuse again after they bragged the last 2 games how he's "back baby!"?

NBA set to implement rule changes

• The eight-second backcourt violation will occur when the shot clock reaches 15 seconds, rather than 16.
