    The funny thing is that the best team right now for running the D'Antoni offense (from a personnel perspective) is the Knicks :lol:

    Yeah, its gonna be a slog. I don't know, something about that Houston game gave me a sliver of hope. Maybe it was seeing Pau and Dwight play well together.

    Uh, it should probably be pointed out that the article is linked from The Onion.

    Man, no love for GSW. No way they only win one game. They play really excellent ball but are a little inconsistent. That has been a lot better lately and Curry is on fire. Thompson has also been playing a much better all around game and getting better as a defensive stopper and adding a post game. Denver lost their #1 go to scorer but has played them really well and are athletic and young but I think GSW takes it to at least 6 or even wins it.

    its definitely going to be a fun series to watch. i think gsw is probably more stable than denver. i've been waiting for denver to implode since all-star break. maybe i'll still be waiting, but i don't think so.

    When Sheed came back and stuck his first shot (a post up turnaround), I was so, so happy as a Knicks fan. Off the bench in limited time, even at his age, he could easily put up 10-15 points and grab 6-8 rebounds along with good defense. Then he came out a minute later and now he retires :( This may sound ridiculous to some, but I was shocked that the knicks are able to get the quality of a Quentin Richardson and Barron this late in the season. You get a 3 point shooter and defender and a lively 7 footer than can block shots and rebound to bring off the bench in the playoffs. If these guys give you 5-10 solid minutes off the bench, that could make the difference in a series.

    Lakers vs Spurs in the first round. WoW.

    Steve will be on suicide watch if the Spurs loses.

    Fuck no unless you give me a 10,000 to 1 odds :lol:

    If Kobe were still playing, I might just take a bet or two but w/o him, the guy who practically willed the team to the playoffs, no way in hell.

    No Kobe and Lakers still sucking on defense = be embarrassed if you're the #2 team and loses.
