sounds like a boxing crowd in the staples center right now... like a gladiator battle... just swarming noise going both ways...

Guess the steam ran out of that engine.

i've been watching all the Knucks games because i've got history with the Knucks. so yeah, i'm happy with Shumpert. but i've been watching most of the Timberwolves games for 2 reasons only: Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. Rubio's court vision is fantastic. he's my early pick for rookie of the year.

yeah i really really like the timberwolves. i wish jj barea would be let out more, but i like seeing the derrick williams + rubio combo. and kevin love is a beast

Rubio looked good the other night in his first start

i can't believe it took till MLK day for me to actually be able to sit down and watch my first NBA game. i blame being out of the country for a extended period of time.

what did i miss?

Sadly, Irving will most likely take RotY.
He's actually leading his team, albeit terrible but still in 8th place at the moment.
He's been averaging 20+ ppg lately too so if he keeps it up, it's his to lose.
I'm still not that impressed though, he needs to get more assists and steals.

oh, and here's my contribution on the news front:

The Americans announced a 20-player pool, a list from which the 12-man roster will be chosen in June for the London Olympics.

Other than the two newcomers, the remaining players all represented the Americans at either the 2008 Olympics or 2010 world championship and have said they wish to be considered again.

Returning from the team that won gold in Beijing are: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Deron Williams. Back from the reigning world champions are: Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyson Chandler, Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay, Kevin Love, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Russell Westbrook and Andre Iguodala.

Colangelo had planned to add Griffin to the national team roster in 2009, but he was hurt shortly after being selected with the No. 1 overall pick and those plans were scrapped. Aldridge was on the national team roster but withdrew from consideration for the 2010 worlds for personal reasons.

if i were USA BB, i'd roll with:

G's: Rose, Paul, Deron, Kobe, Wade
F's: Lebron, Durant, Melo, Love, Aldridge
C's: Howard, Chandler

tough leaving Eric Gordon and Rudy Gay off, but the others are more well-rounded. maybe replace Melo with Gay to improve defense. this would be a killer two-way team as long as Howard and Chandler don't get into foul trouble on defense.

Kevin Love - obligatory white guy
post #5186 of 27204
he fits the bill...he can shoot, make the heady play and rebound

my pick would be

G: Rose, Paul, Kobe, Lowry, Eric Gordon
F: Lebron, Durant, Melo, Love, Ryan Anderson
C: Dwight, Marc Gasol,

Also kevin love is owning stats wise and dude is a beast on the court. averaging nearly a steal and a block per game and he's surprisingly efficient

Anderson over Aldridge? Why?
Aldridge doesn't get the respect he deserves, it'll be a shame if he doesn't get the nod this year.

And Gasol is from Spain so...
