JK - just kidding with you, dandridge. I feel for them as well. Seems weird to have Sacramento moving to Seattle, after Seattle moved to Oklahoma City. Sac-town fans were/have been some of the best in the business for quite some time now.

If your not watching the OKC/GS game on NBAtv its a crazy shootout right now, Curry and Martin back and forth, the hustle on both sides is fun to watch

I'm addicted to watching Lakers games.

I know its petty, but watching them absolutely implode is just glorious.

:lol: So Mcgee. That was a pretty amazing play though.

Honestly I was expecting him to lose control, bounce the ball off the backboard only to hit himself in the head at the rim, while simultaneously knocking over 3 teammates resulting in an offensive foul.

I was just noticing how absolutely INSANE Kevin Durant's numbers are this year.

He is leading the league in scoring while ranking 2nd only to Tyson Chandler in TS%!
He is 2nd in the league in FTA's while ranking 3rd in FT%!
He even ranks 11th in 3P% (among those with at least 100 attempts)

He is currently have the 3rd best season of all time going by ORtg among primary option scorers (Usg 25% or higher). His ORtg is 125. Barkley and Dantley each posted 126 once. Durant is outscoring both of them on a pace-adjusted basis.

And what is equally impressive is what Kobe and Duncan are doing at their ages.

Boston is holding their own against Miami in double OT.

So terrible refing doesn't just happen to the Wizards.

Miami just got hosed.

Ray Allen with a nasty cross over drive and was under cut. He was already in the air and got called for the charge.

Then PP with an obvious push off and they didn't call it.

Boston wins.

Wade is not nearly the player he once was. Miami is not nearly as good as they once were.

The thing the Heat continue to do is forget about Bosh in the clutch.

Will be rooting against the Celtics, 76ers, and every other EC team between us and the 8th seed.

Man I hate Miami.

How do you lose that game to Boston without Rondo in OT ? How ?

I was cheering for the Heat and then I saw Battier flop for a charge late in the 4th or 1st OT and thought, you know, the C's will lose again, how can you cheer for a team with Shane Battier?

Yeah Miami is going to have a tougher time in the playoffs this year. With Rose, Dwight, Shumpert (and all the Knicks guards), and Avery Bradley hurt, they had a cake walk last season.
