    ^ Very true.
    Artest drives me crazy because every once in awhile he'll put together an excellent game like last night.
    That play you mentioned: curl, pass from LO at the top of the key to Kobe inside the FT line, was a very nice play.

    Celtics just got better, why the hell would OKC trade Jeff Green? Dude has so much potential and still very young. WTF! Yeah I'm mad!
    OKC doesn't need Nate as back-up PG, Harden is good enough.

    serious? dam they just got better beef up in frontcourt. perkins would never be the same anyways after the injury.

    hope shaq and jermaine (and rasheed) stays down for the playoffs duration.

    What is OKC doing?

    They get Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson for Jeff Green (a true young stud in their system) and Nenad Krstic.

    And now they get Nazr Mohammed from Charlotte for D.J. White and Mo Peterson.

    I don't get it. Are they intent on becoming less athletic? I thought that was their advantage in the West. Then again, Presti is no idiot.


    Rockets: Battier to Memphis for Thabeet. Hmmmm....

    are some teams just trading for the sake of trading? like us, we buy stuff on gilt or bid on ebay just because of the thrill?

    Well, this bodes well for the Celtics now and in the long run, especially given Green and Krstic's youth. That said, I'm extremely sad to see Perk go. The injury might have changed his game for good, but he was a great defender and a core member of the team. I guess it's just a business after all.

    i think to a certain extent, there's an "act busy" motivation. that and the constant need to "tweak"

    yeah, there's that, too. gets the fan base all geared up when interest may be slipping after 4 months of basketball.
