    no lead is safe when you're playing the celtics.... let me clarify that... even when the C's are up double digits... you can always come back!

    I don't think so. The playoffs are a time when superstars and closers are so important, and they traded that away.

    And Marcus Thornton and stupid Diaw playing out of his mind Thaddeus Young who was playing badly for the past 3-4 weeks then breaks out in the end averaging 20+ pts.

    Haha, thanks guys. Lowry and co really came through for me and got hot at the right time. As for the pot, we had $200 total. The way we were going to distribute the money was:

    1st place regular season- $20

    1st place playoffs-$110 (conveniently, I get to keep this [​IMG] )
    2nd place playoffs- $50 (rfx gets this plus he was the regular season winner so +$20 more)
    3rd place playoffs- $20 (sexandcandy aka soowoop)

    send me your paypal info guys and i'll ship the money tonight.

    sexandcandy- Congrats on winning your main money league man.

    rfx- thanks for setting this thing up, I had a blast playing with you all (and taking your money! [​IMG] [​IMG]) looking forward to playing next year and hopefully some more people will want to join.

    It was no problem, it was lots of fun, just glad to get it done this year since nothing panned out last year when I tried it. I do hope more people join next year but with a few tweaks since some people felt it was too deep, I thought it was fine but I guess it did use a lot of players in a line-up.

    Are we watching the same NBA season? Their past "superstar" is on a struggling team with no chemistry while the new nuggets have great chemistry and their bench players are fucking stacked. Not to mention any of their bench players can be starters on any team in the NBA. Don't be surprised if they upset at least one of the top 3 in the western conference. Thunder vs Nuggets in the 1st round will be THE games to watch.

    LOL, ok man.

    Along with RFX i'm pretty sure I've watched as much if not more games this season than anyone. If you've even read this thread you'll know how i feel about the new nuggets, and how they robbed the knicks and got tons of talent in return. I know what they have, but what they have does not translate well into the playoffs. It's a team sport, and depth matters, but in the playoffs you need a go-to guy, a superstar, someone who shines when the pressure is on, and Carmelo Anthony was the epitome of that. He's up there with guys like Kobe, Paul Pierce, etc. when it comes to being big in the moment and closing out games. If you can't understand that, then i should be asking YOU if you're watching the same league as me.

    Well said s&c. The bench matters, but come playoff time the starters of playoff teams generally see a significant hike in minutes played, and rotations tighten. I don't think the Nuggets "depth" will translate into turning into much of an issue for teams like OKC or SA. The Nuggs have a decent regular season team but seriously, who are you gonna dump the ball come crunch time? Gallinari? [​IMG]

    JR Smith of course, whose better to take a stupid half court shot than someone who is actually retarded? It won't even have to be crunch time, he'll do it any day, anytime! [​IMG]

    To bad we won't be seeing Bulls vs Celtics in the 1st round again, what season did Noah do a full court dunk on pierce and the 3-4 overtime games?

    Hey, I'll admit that I've been dead wrong about Denver so far. I believe after the trade I used the words "suck" and "ass" [​IMG] We'll see about the playoffs. They aren't beating the Lakers or the Spurs in my mind, but maybe another less playoff experienced, more easily panicked club

    so shaq is out with the same strained achilles again? i sure hope this is just a minor setback. so he'll be back in time for at least 2nd round playoffs and at least 50% strength.

    or else, boston will be sending out the same old excuses and downplaying our championship again "we didnt have shaq at full strength and jermaine was old and we traded away perkins. other than that, the lakers would not have stolen our championship 2011"
    or some lame shit like that.


    i remember doc saying something to the tune of" last year we were hurt all year.. and the lakers are celebrating like we werent"

    wtf? wasnt it his organization and he who said that they dont look at excuses? well, of course we'll be celebrating. we just won the fucking championship. who's celebrating the fact that you were not hurt? what the hell? lol.

    ^now thats a "being mad/annoyed for no reason" post.

    seriously, injuries are part of the game. its a team game so unless if its your main scorer like kobe tearing both his ACLs then its just an excuse.

    that said perkins was injured for game 6 and 7 last year and that sucked... just like having KG blow out his poplitheal tendon (so rare and weird there's no actual treatment modality for it) in 2008-09.

    those were some horrific injuries to have (perkins torn ACL) and KG's weird poplethial tendon blow out.

    the lakers finally have had bynum and he's looking like a monster going into the playoffs finally.

    word from the medical grapevine is that shaq has deep abscesses in his left quad (pockets of fluid and pus within the muscle) that need to be drained daily, a partially torn achilles, and now a strained (slightly torn) calf. He's on borrowed time now and most likely will retire after the playoffs.
