Ditto. Also, Parker's game has been incredible this season. He has awesome fakes, spins, and general post moves once he's down low.

Not in that game. 32 points on 23 shots isn't too bad at all. If he played like that more often, he might even deserve his salary. But he won't. Gay's $18 million a year held Memphis back, it'll hold Toronto back, and it would have had the Wizards treading water. Don't regret Gay, regret Harden.

No thanks. I'll regret both...

Oh what could have been... :roll:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

I'm not surprised. I didn't think they'd lose much without Rudy Gay.

Mike Conley and Tony Allen are great, great perimeter defenders. Zbo is rebounding at an elite level and Gasol is just doing it all. Tayshaun Prince still has a lot left.

Their bench has also ben playing well.

They play Miami on Friday and Miami has had trouble with Memphis the last two seasons. Should be a good matchup.

Irving to miss a game with hyperextended knee.

Let the tank wars begin...

Tobias Harris with 2 nice games for Orlando so far. They got him for an impending free agent...nicely done Orlando.

Noted both Harris's stat-line and that of Vucevic....and we have Vesely waiving a towel with 6th pick on-it. :evil:

Wow. Dallas lost at home to MIL. That sucks.

SAC take the Heat into 2xOT before losing.

And Cleveland beat Chicago :roll:

I know. Sucks so bad we didn't pick him that year. Image this team with him on it.

Would make this years draft a lot more clear. Still gotta go best player but no way to do that and get a center as good as Nikola V and one of Victor, Otto, CJ McCollum, Smart

At least we got Beal last draft.

The problem with Vucecic, despite his really good numbers, is that he's a pitiful defender. Very soft inside. But with that being said, he is light years ahead of Singleton or Vesely.

The Milwaukee win is the painful part. I'm actually rooting for Cleveland, Detroit, Philly and Toronto to continue to play well (Sacramento, Pheonix and New Orleans too).

Basically, I want everyone in front of us to win more, and for Milwaukee to lose more, so that 5 teams are hovering right in that 35-37 win area at the end of the year. If we play well enough down the stretch to finish with 38 wins, we go to the playoffs. If we merely play reasonably well and finish with 30-32 wins, there won't be any real ground lost in the tank race.

Not surprised by Harris. He could be a future volume scorer. I think he can be a great SF. I proposed a few trade ideas hoping to get Harris.

Tobias Harris just needs minutes.

That would be the best scenario now won't it.

They played it perfectly last year. We had the inside track and we never gave up position while going on a winning streak.

True about Vucevic, but during the anybody but Vesely (ABV) movement, I would have taken Vucevic over Ves.

...and Damn Dallas for losing their lead in the 4th against the Bucks.

And Im surprised no one pointed out Shaun Livingston's big game playing 33 min and scoring 15 pts in the win filling in for Kyrie Irving.

LeBron James concluded the month of February with a PER of 38.5, the highest single-month of his career.

James averaged 29.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.9 assists and 1.9 steals per game while shooting 64.1 percent from the floor.


:o

That, folks, is just unfair. At this point, do we really even need to hold the East playoffs?

Return to Washington Wizards
