I never seen stevie so active in this thread during playoff time! He'd all but disappeared past 3 years LOL!!!

The travel dance is hilarious.

Lebron is still a pos, luckily more and more people are starting to realize this.

Knicks are not too bad - the pieces just don't fit together with Melo in the lineup, because he needs to go 1-1 and everyone feed off him. but he renders Amare useless because Amare needs to get the ball in space or in motion. they really did play a lot better with Lin in the Steve Nash role

plus they really really needed Shumpert to give Wade a hard time. you can't beat the Heat without a single good perimeter defender

That's just it, that's a HUGE problem. Not only now but moving forward. One of those guys has to go.

they'll probably get swept. being swept in the first round two years in a row with basically the same team will stir the pot enough for some action. plus steve nash just might consider going to the NYK in the off season (perfect apprenticeship for Lin too).

maybe they can trade Amare to the Suns for Nash stirpot.gif

I have a feeling that even if steve nash/chris paul/rondo was paired up with Carmelo 20x a game Melo would still demand the ball on the wing do that thing where he brings the ball behind his head while looking down (2 seconds), then look up for another 2 seconds, proceed to start dribbling for another 2 seconds, then decide to do something.

i think the only way to get carmelo to play within the flow of a set offense that didn't involve isolation plays 95% of the time would be to jedi mind trick him/shame him with a coach like phil jackson/greg popovich.

no team in their right mind would trade for Amare's 3 year $60mil + contract. luckily for the knicks, there probably about 5 teams in the league dumb enough to do that.

since D.ouche Howard will request a trade in the offseason anyway:

Knicks get:

Howard
Turkoglu

Olrlando Gets:

Stat
Chanlder
Shumpert
any first round picks the knicks have for 2013

orlando has to get something for howard, and it looks like bynum just earned himself a permanent place on the lakers. getting bynum would be ideal for both sides, but now he's too valuable to the lakers (especially if bynum continues to do well this playoffs).

This is the first season I haven't been working at night in 3-4 yrs. I'm enjoying them quite a bit. Especially when the Lakers lose.

Tyson Chandler won Defensive Player of the Year? The Knicks have been pretty bad up until the beginning of March.

I would have given it to Ibaka or maybe Howard again.

Would have been Deandre Jordans if he didn't lose his minutes to Kenyon. He was #1 in blocks and rebounding in double digits while scoring close to double digits before Martin got signed by the Clips.

Congrats to Pops for being the coach of the year again though. He deserved it for what he turned the Spurs into this year. They are destroying Utah right now.
post #6959 of 27206
Pop should definitely be coach of the year. his teams have always been successful but this is honestly the only season where i said to myself - WTF, how are the Spurs the one-seed this year??

DPOY should be Lebron. he's the only guy who regularly guarded all five positions and played very good defense against all of them. he's quick enough to smother even quick guards, and he routinely checks 7-foot centers in the post as well. but you guys all hate him, so i don't expect any support for this tongue.gif

i got no problem with Chandler though - even though it's somewhat tainted because the Knicks are so horrible defensively. but he definitely deserves it based on his performance in the 2011 playoffs alone.

Eh, playoff performance doesn't count. Honestly, the title would have been more suited for him but his defensive skills wouldn't even be acknowledge if the Mavs didn't win the chip last year. Still, the Knicks is horrible and someone is definitely better suited for that award.

As for Lebron, he'd get my vote but he is likely to win the MVP award already. It really is a toss up between him and Durant but I feel Lebron is still the best overall player. Durant just isn't able to plow people down and score at will. Lebron has improved on almost the categories on the stat sheet this year, he is getting one less assist this year in comparison to last year and that is pretty much the only negative he has stat-wise.
