meeks has been on a shooting spree last couple games. note: i did not say a SCORING spree. 4 of 14 in the last 2 games; 1 of 9 from the three.

Not really fair since Brown 4 minutes a game and all of a sudden gotten about 15. And he is working freeing up the lane since he is a threat from behind the arc, him and Jamison doesn't need to score 15-20 points, just the occasional 3 to spread out the defenders.

true. and i think there must be something going on when normally fairly reliable three-point shooters (meeks, jamison, blake) suddenly lose their touch when plugged into this lineup. darius morris has impressed me the last couple games. and will probably start tonight. jeez.

although I hate the lakers I want DiAntoni to be uber successful as the new lakers coach... just to further provide definitive proof that Carmelo is a dick for forcing him out.

Kobe may be a super ball hog but he's actually not that bad of a ball stopper especially in transition where kobe will score quickly when the defense gives him the opportunity and/or even make a quick pass to a open/slashing teammate for an easier score.

Every time melo would get it in semi-transition then do his: OK I'M GOING TO HOLD THE BALL... AND NOW LOOK DOWN FOR 3 SECONDS, OK NOW I'LL LOOK UP FOR 2 MORE SECONDS. NOW I WILL BEGIN THE PROCESS OF DRIBBLING AND DECIDING TO TAKE A CONTESTED 21FOOT SHOT, OR MAYBE DRIVE INTO A DOUBLE TEAM AND TAKE A CONTESTED 15FOOT SHOT.

you could see DiAntoni dying a little inside every time it happened... I guess he finally just ended up quitting. That says a lot... for a coach to just quit on his superstar.

melo's playing great this year, but is still doing the ball stopping... Its just that he's a little more invested in defense, and the whole team is buying into the defense anchored by tyson chandler. also Felton is pissed about being ragged on so badly for being fat and slow he's finally trying.

D-Will totally owned Irving last night. It's clear that Irving, while very talented, he still has a way to go.

Serious question: is Varejao the best C in basketball right now? The dude is playing out of his mind.

Ya, he's been a monster. I drafted R Hibbert on my fantasy team because I thought he was going to breakout this season. I remember seeing Varejao right there during that round.

Hibbert cant even score double digits and is missing lollipops, cant stay out of foul trouble and isnt blocking enough shots for a guy 7-2.

D Jordan in LA is also breaking out.
