The NBA: Where gettin mad cuz I'm stylin on you happens.

Ok, I figured I'd start another place for general NBA talk, because, quite honestly, unless a fight breaks out or something happens with the Knicks, the NBA will NOT get talked about around here without a general thread. :lol:

But yeah, I figured I'd start with this: I will be going to see the Hawks play the Nets tomorrow night...and since they are seemingly cursed, they're probably going to lose. Devin Harris is good. Also, did anybody see the beatdown that Orlando laid on Cleveland tonight? Wow.

Discuss.

OKC is 6-4 out of their last 10...and it's gotten to the point where they are no longer the worst team in the NBA (which is now Washington), and not even the worst team in the West (which is now Sacramento). The Thunder are really moving on up.

It also reminds me of Minnesota...they started off the season terrible and have only lost three times this month. That team is going to reap the long term benefits of the KG trade.

Nuggets get 'Melo back -- they performed very well without him. I think they're going to make a move before the deadline -- need another big man but I wouldn't mind John Salmons from Sacramento. That Chauncey trade was a stroke of genius. Very excited for the second half, what I'll be able to see of it, anyways.

The Raptors make me want to pull my hair out. They have such a solid starting lineup but the bench is failing them. They need to bring in some depth for the bench and maybe, hopefully, they'll be able to hold onto leads...

Wow.... one year out of the very cellar and people are already adding reasons to hate you. That was one quick rise up, wasn't it? :rolleyes:

(Not that it surprises me of course... we do have KG after all.)

Yep, dirty play is a reason to dislike anyone, not just the Celtics.

Not exactly what the Lakers needed to see...

It's like Deja Vu.

Lakers go to Memphis. Lose Andrew Bynum. 2nd straight year it has happened.

This time is a right knee sprain. Still waiting on the MRI likely to come today to see the full extent of it. x-rays were negative.

Get back quick Drew! We really need you this time around!

Knicks playing better ball, winning 6 of 7, beating the Hornets, Celtics and Suns in one month. At 21-25, they are a 1/2 game back of the Bucks for the 8th and final playoff spot.

Here comes the true test. A 3-game homestand this week the Garden is calling "Dream Week", but the media and players are calling "Hell Week". NY takes on the Lakers on Monday, Cavs on Wednesday, and Celtics on Friday all at MSG.

I agree, but you pointed out the Celtics one and said "just another reason to hate the Celtics." :P Perk just went berserk there, I don't have an idea what he was thinking. He's not usually a dirtbag.

Oh, :censored:. First Bynum takes out Gerald Wallace, then he gets hurt! My fantasy team is in complete civil war! :D

Don't say that! I want the Blunder to suck and suck more then Sacramento and Washington. I want them to suffer for their crimes.

Since when is leaving Seattle a crime?

At some point, you're just going to have to let that :censored: go.

It'll have to happen.. Probably not until the end of the season, though. Or at least the All-Star break.

Oklahoma City always had potential. Durant and Green are great, Westbrook is going to become a great point guard, Wilcox is really underrated, they just have to develop. Next year they'll probably win 25+ with a good free agent addition down in the post.

If they keep on getting good draft picks, they're going to be ok. Plus they will be getting good at the right time: The offseason that will precede the 2010-11 season will change the NBA as well know it, and will probably shake up the foundations of powerhouses as we know them. I mean, we've seen change at the top of conferences, but not too much change when it comes to the mid-to-low playoff seeds. That's going to change drastically come 2010, and OKC will probably ascend to the top at that point, if they continue to draft and sign personnel wisely.

So, Kobe Bryant went into [rams80]seed mode[/rams80] tonight at MSG. 61 points, holy crap.

And it's gutcheck time for the Hawks. They are 9-15 on the road, and 11 of their next 14 will be on the road. The Heat are on their trail for the 4th playoff spot...but these are the Hawks, I always expect the worst when it comes to them, so they will probably be in the 6th or 7th spot by the time this stretch ends according to the way they've started off the year of 2009. Hopefully they surprise me.
