    Looks like OKC will let it all hang on the young dudes. Inexperience might just be their undoing and I don't even think anyone can replace the loss of Harden and Martin. We'll see if Lamb really is that good, I saw a couple of game in the Summer League and he was ok. Hit a game winner I think.

    This is interesting though:

    I'm hoping Artest makes his way to the Knicks.

    Am I the only one in the world that thinks the Lakers will be better this season than they were last season :confused:

    I also think that the Howard in Houston thing has a 50/50 chance of working out well or going to shit. Harden is a ball dominator, he does get more assists than I would expect but he requires the ball in his hands on almost every possession and he decides when to distribute or when to go to the rim/take a 3. If Howard actually had the balls/stupidity to expect the Lakers to amnesty Kobe and have the Lakers be his team, what is he expecting in Houston? I have to believe that he expects to be the number 1 option and the number 1 shot taker. he could very well be the 3rd option in that offense after Harden and Parsons, as the Rockettes are a run and gun team. How is he going to handle that? And if the Rockets change their game to accommodate him, what does that do to Chandler and Harden? I would not be surprised to see Houston in the same situation that the Lakers were in this year. Howard could very well retard the growth of all that young talent Houston has.

    That is poor. You can just smell the entitlement.

    Thats actually a much bigger signing than the media/league will think it is. MWP is not washed up and he brings a lot in intangibles to the game that no one else on the Knicks really has and he solidifies an already solid bench.

    The East is going to be a bloodbath this year.

    All this non-stop Howard nonsense has me thinking that Houston would have been a better team if they got Josh Smith instead of Howard. Their weaknesses are PF and the bench. Smith's skill sets are perfect for that run and gun offense, he can score inside or outside and he can handle the ball and be a facilitator. Lin/Harden/Parsons/Smith/Asik is a better starting five than their current lineup with Howard, in my opinion. And Smith was cheaper. And Howard has pretty much shown you how he will act if he is not the number 1 option/face of team. And then there is his free throw shooting, there is no need to double him late in a game, just foul him.

    I'm curious what happened to the auction though? I thought that if Artest decides to stay in the NBA, teams (under teh salary cap iirc) could bid at him and he can only sign with whatever team he wants if there were no bids?
