Everytime i watch Zaza play it makes me laugh. As much as he was critical to our defense that year it still gets lost on a lot of people here how much we wanted to kill him on a nightly basis for some of the dumb stuff he does. Just an awkward dude at times. Already made a couple of funny plays tonight. Under appreciated around the league still but overrated on here.

He is overrated as a player on the floor. Trying to fill Bogut's role in GSW is simply ridiculous. Plus despite that he is a good defender his rim protection is as good as Greg Monroe's.

The things in which he is underated though is his durability as a big white guy and that he is a humble veteran player who will fill any kind of role they will ask him to as small as it is without causing trouble or getting out of the plan.

In the end GS has a great deal considering the veteran minimum contract they are paying him.

So this is happening.

Carmelo Anthony said he’s loved living in Los Angeles across the years and dropped enough hints Monday his time may be done as a Knick.

Following the morning shootaround at Staples Center, Anthony was careful to say he hasn’t “thought about’’ a move to the Clippers, but didn’t reject the notion either, with a fourth straight losing season as a Knick already a certainty.

Anthony admitted the romantic idea of one day retiring a Knick — which he once said he wanted — appears “highly impossible’’ in this new NBA, and has sought advice about his future and “what could be next.’’

The Knicks held preliminary trade talks with the Clippers before February’s deadline but no package formed to present to Anthony, who has a no-trade clause. The Clippers make perfect sense for Anthony. He’d hook up with one of his best friends in point guard Chris Paul, and Anthony’s former Knicks head coach Mike Woodson, who is Doc Rivers’ assistant.

According to a source, Anthony “bumped’’ into Woodson and Sam Cassell, another Clippers assistant, Saturday night at a Hollywood hotspot. Anthony had his best season under Woodson in 2012-13.


Anthony made no bones about his “family’’ enjoying Los Angeles in the offseason. Before the trade deadline, Anthony said family was a big factor in deciding whether to waive the no-trade clause.

“Sometimes you need to get in a new environment and feel a different type of energy and vibe,’’ Anthony said.

Anthony was referring to his team, but he probably could have been talking about his career, too.

“Over the years, I’ve grown to like it,’’ Anthony said. “I think as you get older, you start looking for places you can relax and enjoy and be good over the years. L.A. has been a place where my family feels comfortable at. We’ve been here for seven years now.’’

That's not news. It's clear that Carmelo wanted to be traded only to a high seed/contender team and not randomly on Knicks's best deal offer. These comments shows that he is trying to create bridges with one of them.

Hayward has 30 points, Gobert has a double double and 4 blocks, PG is still under 10 points and yet the Pacers have a 10 point lead..

It seems OKC is cursed to be pwned by GSW in every possible scenario over and over again.

First this happened.

and it lead to this finish for the first half.

Players only analysts and halftime is probably my favorite thing in sports. Usually hate all of it, but when they're together it's like some Voltron broadcast of insight. Love it.

Just heard Curry's halftime comments and his voice sounded nothing like those squeaks I heard during the all star game. Is he trying extra hard to sound manly?

Any time I hear/see KG talk, I wanna jump off of a bridge onto a flaming bed of nails.
