Nash out Telfair in. Please!!

Now that the Phoenix Suns season is over. Because they just lost a must win game against the jazz for the final 8th spot in the west. Maybe now they can get rid of Nash. Bon Voyage buddy. Sick of seeing you all cozy on the sideline with your warm ups on and a towl around your neck and laying on the ground. Sick of it. You were good. We all know that. You still are. I just don't want you on my team. (like i have a team) Telfair is a better option and you can tell that Alvin Gentry agrees. He would way rather have telfair out there. In my opinion. Players that should go are: Nash, Warrick, Morris, Grant Hill, and Childress. I would not bat a eye to see those guys leave. Not a big fan of Gortat, but a big guy is a rarity in the league. So keep him. So If i where the GM I would do that. And add some pieces. It is just to bad Channing Frye cannot grow into the player he is capable of being. But with that quick of release from three you gotta keep him and hope he can figure it out. But Nash's time has come. Telfair can do the job in my opinion. 

What a douche!

Kemp was on one of the greatest dunkers!

One of the greatest dunkers the game has seen. His jump shot was a bit hard and always subject but he sure did attack the rim. I sure do miss the Supersonics. They had a good squad. Hersey Hawkins, Detlef Shrempf, Ricky Pierce, and Dale Ellis. They had some gamers. I miss those years. Was never a Payton fan though.

Who wins today between Lakers and Mavs?

The lakers are a 2 point favorite. They need this one. The lakers are in third place in the west with the clippers one game behind them. Dallas in sixth place. The way it is sitting now these two teams would meet in first round of playoffs. I really don't think the lakers want clipppers moving ahead of them and dropping to four seed because then they got Memphis. And personally I would rather play the Dallas rather than Memphis. Just me though. So I think lakers want this game more. That said. Lakers -2 and really not wanting clippers to catch them. I would go lakers. But wait. Will i go with lakers. One big piece on info I left out. kobe is doubtful. Not expected to play. So now it is a toss up. Probably won't touch it. I think if kobe was 100% line would be 6 or 7. They are at home. But with kobe gone and line and -2 it might be worth it to take Dallas to win. But I ain't touchin it. I don't think!

Who's winning today.... Heat or Knicks?

Knicks have not lost at home yet under new coach Mike Woodson. Vegas says Miami is still a 3 point favorite here. Could go either way. A one game matchup could could go either way. But in a seven game series I don't see the heat getting by the knicks. I only say that if Carmello is Carmello. Playing at the top of his game. He is the best scorer on the floor in that game if he is playing at the top of his game. But as we know there is a good chance he will not. So the smart money might be Miami. I just don't see Miami goin anywhere. They are ugly to watch.

Lin said before the game versus the bulls on sunday (4/8/12) he was feeling good after surgery on his left knee Monday but didn't think he could return in time for the first round of the playoffs.

First off I love the NBA because I love basketball. The biggest thing I dislike about the NBA is how often they put the same teams on national television.  As a fan of hoops and a fan of the NBA I would like to see the NBA.  Its like they are aiming the audience at girls and guys that couldn't tell you what a one and one at the free throw line is. I am getting sick and tired of watching the Heat, Lakers, and Magic play. I wanna see some Timberwolves, some Trailblazers. Just not the usual teams. I mean I know its all about ratings. And for that day the Heat, Lakers and Magic probably would get you better ratings. But it is about building a product and start aiming towards people who care and in the long run the products ratings as a whole will rise. I am getting sick of watching player based on reputation and not skill. I am getting sick of watching Lebron and Dwight miss free throws. They are FREE and you are a professional. Some player just catch the buzz and it cannot escape them. Like Jason Kidd having the reputation of a great point gaurd in his later years. Are you freakin serious? There are 30 other point guards I would rather have. He was terrible.  So Mr. Stern please don't have the same teams on national tv every time. Mix it up. Grow your product. It will then take away any conspiracy there might be. The conspiracy that you want these top market teams to go farther in the playoffs.


MIAMI -- James Jones had a big night for the Miami Heat, and coach Erik Spoelstra is going to have some big decisions soon.
LeBron James scored 26 points, Chris Bosh finished with 22 points and nine rebounds, and the rarely used Jones scored 18 off the bench as the Heat steadily pulled away to beat the Detroit Pistons 98-75 on Sunday night.
Getting his biggest chunk of playing time since mid-January, Jones tied a career-best with six 3-pointers and also had four steals for the first time in his career. Spoelstra is already trying to figure out how Miami's playoff rotation will work, and nights like Sunday from Jones probably further complicated some already-tough choices.
"Right now, every guy's on edge pretty much, trying to play to their utmost capabilities," said Jones, who entered Sunday having scored 22 points in Miami's previous 23 games. "We understand it's the playoffs and we need to play better as a team. From one through 15, every guy needs to play better."
Miami played without Dwyane Wade for the 11th time this season. Wade sat out with right ankle soreness, which the team said was caused by an awkward landing on a missed dunk attempt against Memphis on Friday night.
The Heat are now 10-1 when Wade is sidelined this season, and are 18-1 in their last 19 home games.
"Guys just step up in his absence," James said. "We've got a veteran ballclub. Whenever someone is down, guys step up."
Detroit rookie Brandon Knight, playing as a pro in the city where he was born for the first time, scored 16 for the Pistons. Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckeyadded 11 apiece for Detroit, which had a season-low eight assists.
"They thoroughly outplayed us," Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said.
Knight had more than 500 friends and family members at the game, and returned to the court long after the final buzzer to address the group. Born in Miami, Knight was a star at Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, and his fans showed up early wearing T-shirts bearing both his name and that of the school.
"I thank you for your support for everything I have done," Knight told the crowd. "It is just a blessing. I can't say enough how thankful I am."
Miami's win, combined with Chicago's overtime loss at New York earlier Sunday, pulled the Heat (40-15) within two games of the Bulls (43-14) for the best record in the Eastern Conference. The teams have two more head-to-head meetings, the first of those in Chicago on Thursday night.
Up next for Miami: The Boston Celtics visit on Tuesday, barely a week after dealing the Heat a 19-point loss.
Besides Wade's absence, there were two lineup issues of note for Miami. First,Mike Miller returned after missing 14 games with a sprained left ankle. Secondly, with slumping Norris Cole out of the rotation Sunday until the final minutes in part because of a 2-for-21 slump, Jones got meaningful minutes again.
He made them count, too.
"A lot of this will be compelling," Spoelstra said. "A lot of guys are making compelling cases to play."
Detroit led 21-19 after a sleepy first quarter -- the teams combined to shoot 1 for 12 from 3-point range in the opening 12 minutes -- but Jones gave the Heat a boost from long range to get the offense going in the second.
Jones made his first three 3-point attempts in the second quarter, after not making a single first-half basket since March 20, helping spark a 31-point period by Miami. A 15-5 run midway through the second, capped by a putback dunk by James, put Miami up 42-32 with 3:40 left.
The margin was still 10 at halftime, before Detroit's offense went from cool to downright cold.
The Pistons started 1 for 10 from the floor in the first 9 minutes of the second half, and that drought eliminated any guesswork regarding the outcome as Miami turned a 10-point halftime lead into a 22-point cushion. James had nine points in what was a 17-5 run to start the third quarter, the run ending when James found Shane Battier under the basket for a layup that put Miami up 67-45.
Ronny Turiaf had two blocked shots and a steal in that start-of-third push by Miami, including swatting away a dunk attempt by Tayshaun Prince.
"They got all of the shots they wanted," Knight said. "It was easy for them. We had turnovers, missed shots, and it all led to the lead piling up."
The fourth quarter started even worse for the Pistons.
They missed their first eight shots from the floor, Miami scored the first nine points of the final quarter -- all with James on the bench -- and a layup byMario Chalmers made it 78-54 with 9:23 left.

Duke's Rivers to enter NBA Draft

Good decision? Heck no! In my opinion. Horrible decision. And it is just my opinion. I did not see him play a whole lot but I did watch him some. So in MY OPINION not to smart. He just shot up the boards just because of that one shot against NC and was all over sportcenter on the biggest stage. But so many times I see him struggle to get his shot off. Stupid decision on his part.


Funny! But I do believe Kobe does try to pass. I think he should be more greedy actually. So reputations just stick with players. All because of the way he stood at the podium with those glasses on back at Lower Merion High School. (I think thats where it was) Looking like the cockiest thing alive and declaring for the NBA Draft.  I believe a player should be cocky. But it is one thing to be cocky and it is one the to let people see their cockiness.  And the way he shoes off the greats in all - star games back in the day. (Karl Malone) So he does deserve it. But I think he has changed and does not deserve it any more.
