Interested to see how the starters match up at PF/C both offensively and defensively.

Green and Gasol will have their hands full with the Kentucky Towers tonight. If the Grizzlies can take the Pels duo out of their game and force them to work for it, then win #41 will happen tonight.

Well, I didn't expect that! Okay I am now on board with the Pelicans trading Cousins as a non fit and getting him out of the division. We simply had no answers for him, so trading him out East would be really cool, and plus only seeing him twice a year feels right, instead of over doing it by him staying in the division for the next five years.

Lol! Cousins owned Marc last night. Took him off the dribble on several occasions. The Kentucky Towers combined for 60 pts and 30 rebs. The GGs combined for 22 pts and 10 rebs. A poor effort against the new duo who I'm afraid will become a threat to the Grizzlies for quite a while. The Grizzlies are now 0-2 against the new duo and split the season series at 2 a piece. I suspect the Spurs game on tomorrow will likely be a loss as well.

Offtopic: Robin Lopez looks like a nice guy..... to punch in the face.


Sad loss by the way.

Robin Lopez is actually kinda cool, in that he is not pretentious and an original. All of his teammates have seemed to love the guy. Too bad his swing on Ibaka did not find the target.

That fight was crazy last night. It was perhaps the best fight that has happen in a long time. The crazy thing about it is that Lopez punch did miss Ibaka and Ibaka's punch looked like it just tagged Lopez in the neck area.

BAD INTENTIONS! Although we all love to see a good fight, we have to remember these are the largest athletes in the world and actually landing one of there punches could have very bad consequences. The human head was not meant to take any type of trauma. The most infamous punch in basketball history was on Rudy T. (former Rockets coach) as a player he was punched from behind so hard that he said he could taste the spinal fluid in his mouth. Contemplate that!

BEST MISS! Shaquille O'Neil threw a hay-maker at Brad Miller when the Lakers played the Bulls, and everyone is in agreement that if it had landed it could have killed the dude.

A good point here. Perhaps I may have come across as over glorifying fights in my last post. I guess I had nostalgia for a minute. Wasn't my intention to come cross like that. The last thing that needs to happen is that someone gets hurt severely like Rudy T did to the near brink of death.






I forgot the Miller/Shaq fight.
