We're gunning for the southeast division championship this year, so I'll make sure to let y'all know all about it when we win it nod[1].gif

The Cleveland circle jerk started in earnest after the preseason game against Maccabi (confused.gif). The sports blogs could barely contain their desire to fap over all things LeBron/Cleveland ("LeBron learned all five positions in the Blatt offense!!!" " Cleveland destroys Maccabi!!!!!").

The East will be a lot stronger this year (barring injury) and better than people think. Chicago is looking good, Miami will be better than expected, Washington/Atlanta have upgraded from last year, Brooklyn could be strong if Lopez doesn't do his annual foot fracture, and the Triangle will be hypnotizing people in NY.

Looking forward to the Rockets imploding and Lin with the Lakers (10 assists yesterday)

jeremy lin looked pretty decent. i find it weird when kobe and lin are buddy buddy or when lin tells kobe to do something
post #18125 of 27236
Who doesn't love Jeremy Lin?

Well, aside from the Knicks and the Rockets

i see from reports that Kobe is back. couldn't find anything other than ESPN highlights of his game, but it looks like he's in full-on Wizards Jordan mode. all the way down to the array of turnarounds and fadeaways with no lift.

pretty much. he's a very smart player in his dotage. at least from watching about a half of last night's game in between watching the dodger collapse.

no dodgers so bad. no bullpen. firefighters shooting kerosene.

Here's kyrie who is 6' 3"



That looks more like 5 inches than 3 inches to me

Here's wiggins who is supposedly also 6' 8"

Most NBA players add and inch or even two to their height so that's normal,
when it comes to shot blocking height is not the only factor though - timing, positioning and wingspan(you block most shots with your hands not head) are more important than height
Hakeem was listed 7'0 but really was more like 6'10 so was Mourning, Joel Anthony is great shot blocker at 6'9 so wheter Thomson is 6'8 or 6'10 is not really gonna be game changing stat for Cavs

I also added an inch or two to my official measurements, back when I was in porn. Everyone does it
post #18135 of 27236
so that brought you up to what about 5?
