    Another tough loss for the Clippers and to the Twolves for the second time in a week. I think they need Clipper Darrell back.

    That organization is so clueless. How could they not bring him in for a personal meeting, with say, the GM and one of the stars and convince him over the course of a conversation that while they want him to be a fan of the team, he cannot use the team's intellectual capital for his own gain.

    uh, as i understand it, they did. and they were willing to allow him to use "the team's intellectual capital" (what an odd thought when you're talking about the Clips) ... but that they wanted approval (no "Clipper Darrell's Used Car Extravaganza"). the guy sounds like a lunatic who imagines himself to be a much bigger deal than some clown who dances badly.

    The Timberwolves are a good team. Their wing play is terrible (even with Beasley back), but they have three solid point guards and the best power forward in the league not named Dirk Nowitzki.

    That's true, but the Twolves did everything they could to lose that game by giving Paul three free throws to tie. CP3 clanking the last one kind of sums up the way they have been playing the past week.

    @RFX so if Love isn't at least the 2nd best PF in the league, where would you rank him?

    Yeah, I don't know, but from RFX's post he made it seem like Dirk is way overrated at #1 PF (which I would agree with), Love is the #1 PF (which again I would agree with), or Love is not even close to the #1 or #2 PF (which is absolute nonsense).

    That was a horrible game for the Lakers. Yesterday there was talk of the Lakers being contenders again. Today they manage to lose to the last place Pistons, while needing OT to score 80 points.

    Drik is definitely not the best PF this year. Dude has been horrible and partied too hard during the lockout and was out of shape. Dallas' record speaks for itself, they're 2 loses away from being out of the playoff contention, the former champs. Dude didn't even deserve to be in the ASG this year. Love is definitely #1 and put Aldridge at #2.

    plus motherfucking one

    kevin love > lamarcus > ryan anderson > paul millsap> pau gasol > dirk

    blake is somewhere in there. not sure where. maybe after lamarcus


    also i think the issue with melo is that melo shoots the ball the most and so far has been incredibly inefficient whereas before the ball was distributed more evenly to players that can make shots. melo just needs time to get his game back after his injury. the melo pre-injury would've been a great asset to the team.

    if you look at his stats today he made 2/12 FGs. if he hit his normal fgp of 45% he would've made 5 or 6 and that's your 10 point loss right there. he just missed a lot of shots that should've been easy
