    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Bah, it sucks when your team is already sitting at home at this point in the season. I've been spoiled so far this decade.

    But if Bosh makes a recovery and Dragic re-signs, I'm liking the prospects of a Dragic-Wade-Deng-Whiteside-Bosh core. Should at least be a playoff team...sigh

    Mavs getting destroyed down the stretch. Dunk after dunk, it's silly at this point.

    Dwight Howard making his free throws for once. Josh Smith was on point with his passing which led to lots of easy baskets. Hopefully the Rockets don't collapse like the last time they played the Mavericks in the Playoffs several years ago.

    Yeah last year we got spoiled with the number of overtimes and long series. And remember all the 4-point plays that appeared out of nowhere? Ah, those were the days.

    And it just hit me that Josh Smith looks a lot like Method Man. They have the same type of swagger too.

    Yeah, I'm really not a fan of the whole campaign, but it's everywhere in Toronto to the point that it's nauseating.

    Gotta love this by a Redditor, though...

    I agree - they would have never been anywhere as good without Lebron, and the Bosh illness was devastating, but a lot of this was self inflicted. They were much more sloppy this year, particularly on defensive rotations (which is a part of the game where even an untalented team can do well with focus and effort)

    The Spurs need to win tonight or things get too interesting.

    Pop didn't really deserve CoY this year, but IMO he's in the running every year.

    Scott Brooks fired. Is the era of Billy Donovan about to start?

    Shoutout to Lawrence. :foo:

    In all seriousness though, this might be the final nail in the coffin for the Durant-OKC era imo. And you know Bill Simmons is going to have a field day with this news.

    watched part of houston last night. thing that struck me right off was how well howard was doing on pick-and-rolls. something he refused to do in la -- he was going to be a back-to-the-basket big man, even with Nash, Pau and Kobe to pass to him. i guess we live and learn.

    Scott Brooks gone, about four years too late.
