DPOY is by writers and broadcasters, All-NBA D is by the coaches.

Bit of a disconnect between the 2:


So how in the hell did Iggy get on the second team and Grant Hill did not?

There was a good article earlier this year in SI re: OKC. Those guys hang out together all the time and apparently all get along well.

Some people are just like that, much more friendly. With OKCs case, they are all kids so they get along well. Same with Miami, Lebron and Wade are practically brothers and Bosh their sister.

Kobe is an introvert though, he's always been awkward with others and I think that is how he manages to focus on his game so much. He doesn't have that entourage like others do, which can be viewed as a good thing. Travelling from Philly to Italy with his dad probably made it difficult to make close friends and marrying his HS girlfriend kind of show how much dude has really been out there. But still, I think if you have been teammates for a a couple of years, you're bound to hang with each other with your wifeys and chicks either get along really well or just hate each other, there doesn't seem to be a middle ground here.

Fuck yeah!!! Needed that OT to go 3-1. I'm sure you guys are all excited as I am

chance to close out game before overtime....

still rondo was more of a liability now with the arm... now I turn into an "anyone but the heat" fan.

I seem to remember bosh being funny and relaxed in his youtube vids/interviews on talkshows... but now he's totally socially awkward its either he's deer in the headlights or overly yelling at normal shots made.

Ack. Five minutes to go. Can't feel my arms. Vancouver better pull this off.

Who cares who chills with who at birthdays and stuff? Do duncan, manu and parker all chill at each other's pads watching the superbowl and grilling out? Jordan pretty much just wanted to golf and gamble when he wasn't playing basketball. Him and oak were tight but i don't think he and bill wennington attended their kids' first communion. It's a job. Obviously has never made a difference in terms of nba success. People always talk about chemistry and whatnot but all that matters is on-court chemistry and teamwork

+1 we fans like to pretend that these teams are "bands of brothers" and imagine all kinds of dramas and storylines, but they're millionaires going to work. sometimes they get along well off the court; sometimes not. i don't think it really has much of an impact as far as what they do on the court.

Wow, OKC-MEM is a great game.

What a game. If Memphis pulls off this win then I am rooting for them all the way. No Conley, no Mayo, they'd have to pull some incredible shit to finish the second overtime to win.

Best game of these playoffs so far.

Seems like Greivis Vasquez can only hit shots when he's bumped or bothered
post #3074 of 27247
Vasquez having flashbacks during his UMD days. Wooooo
post #3075 of 27247
Damn, these guys are hitting everything except the OT game winners! What a war though. Memphis is very impressive.
