    that's why i have the utmost respect for athletes like shane battier and nnamdi asomugha who get their degrees and have plans for real jobs after sports.

    Interesting read about the Magic's win streak.

    I must say, I am surprised by Magics success after the trade. I still question their defense against other powerhouse teams though like the Spurs, Lakers, Heat, Mavs (when healthy with Dirk), etc... Their win against Boston seemed like a fluke to me but I give them credit for the win so I'll leave out the Celtics from that list.

    I haven't been keeping up much but they let him go? It could be a money issue.

    no not yet, but there is always talk about how suns are loading up so they can have a fire sale later, and gortat's name is always in the mix for pawns to trade for the new team of the future.

    I think it's because teams actually want Gortat, like the Mavs offered him a good amount and the Magic matched. He is a good hustle player but I think the Suns are looking to remake the whole team, they are even considering trading Nash now as well. I think they know that they won't win anytime soon so it is the perfect time to rebuild.

    They beat the Spurs too.

    Fuck yeah, Clips win over the Heat!

    Lebron is right though, Karma is a bitch. Heat lost and he sprained his ankle.

    Nice, Clips. Not gonna lie, even with a 20 point lead, I thought they were gonna pull a "Clippers" and blow it.

    Mamba and LO went off in 4Q

    Ummm...the heat beat themselves? No one really cares about the regular season? I'm not worried? Did I get everything? [​IMG]

    I didn't see the game but it looked like the Clips led from start to finish and didn't choke this time. Nice win. I wish they'd trade Baron and just run out Bledsoe/Gordon/Aminu/Blake/Kaman or Jordan out there every night. Let the kids jell as a team and follow the Thunder's recipe.

    Oh, and who else thinks Sterling is inevitably going to fuck this up by alienating or refusing to extend this core once they hit free agency?
