Is Anthony Davis worth the hype? I say YES! I think he is a way better pick and more promising than last years Kyrie Irving. Steve Kerr said earlier this year that he is better than Kevin Garnett right now and I totally agree with that statement. Anyone who has looked through by blog knows how I feel about Garnett. I think Davis is a game changer. He can block anything and has some offense to his game. I think you can build a team with him. Notice I did not say around him. I said with him. He can be a important piece. But I don't think he is good enough to build a team around. He is young and might take some time. But I feel he will develop to something quite special. Could be wrong. Thats just my read.
There has been a lot of talk today concerning NBA conspiracy theories. One with the Boston Celtics getting lack of less foul calls because supposedly the NBA want the Heat in the Finals for the ratings. Two the New Orleans Hornets get the number one pick in the draft. The Hornets which were owned by the NBA until early this season. Tom Benson bought the Hornets. So some people think the league threw in the number one pick to sweeten the deal for Benson. Also the league put a stop to a trade earlier this year that would of sent Chris Paul to LA, Pau Gasol to Houston, and Lamar Odom to the Hornets. Some say that is also maybe why the Hornets were rewarded with the Number one pick. In my opinion, concerning the Bostons lack of fouls. Don't by it. Boston is a jump shooting team. Ray Allen is a jump shooter. The only one who really attacks the rim is Rondo. On the other hand you have Lebron and Wade and that is what they do for the most part. They attack. The heat went to the line 47 times and celtics went to the line 29 times. Heat had 18 fouls to Celtics 33. I don't think there was any bad calls out of the ordinary there. So I am not buying the conspiracy there. And regarding the Hornets getting the number one pick. All I can do is hope there is no foul play there. There is always gona be talk of conspiracy theories. I have youtubed and watched the frozen envelope draft from back in the day that gave the Knicks Ewing. The guy just put his hand in and grabbed. I think people will just speculate no matter what. The only thing that bugs me is the way the NBA puts the same teams on national tv every weekend during the regular season. They should grow their product and a whole to NBA fans and stop aiming to the nonchalant fans who just know the stars. They are just hurting themselves.

Everyone all year has been saying that if one of the big three should leave the Heat it should be Wade. The numbers have agreed with the critics. The Heat have had better success when Wade was out. And that is why the heat are so dangerous now. Dwayne Wade is taking it personally. He is gona show everyone what the best tandem is. He has turned it up a notch the past two games and has looked possessed. He is showing that they do have two of the top four players in the league. There supporting cast does suck but lebron and determined wade is all you need. That being said I stilll by no means think they can win it all. The other top 2 of 4 players in the league are also on one team in Durant and Westbrook and their supporting cast is 50 times better. Whoever wins the west is winning the title. All im saying is the Heat are better when wade is leading the bunch.

In my opinion the Heat are not gona get a ring this year. They might get to the finals but they can't hang with the teams in the west. I think if they can get past Indiana they will go to the finals. I think Indiana will give them more trouble than Boston/Philly. Indiana may not have a superstars but they have a team of quality players. Miami just has two superstars but no team of quality players. Really hurts not having bosh active. I am not a lebron hater. I am just a hater of the popularity he has. He is overated. Colin Cowherd is a wise man but he is way off on his analysis of James. But then again maybe I am. Im just speaking my opinion. Like it or hate it. Don't get me wrong I do think he is one of the best in the league. But anyone who says he is as good as Jordan is way off in left field.

I saw today on espn.com one of there polls they always have on the bottom half of the homepage asking: What should happen to NBA players that flop. And the choices where A: Fine them B: supend them C: Nothing D: Technical.My answer is that is stupid. The question should be what should happen to NBA referees who call fouls when players flop and have the same choices for answers. To me a player can flop if he wants. It is the job of the referee to make that call. Maybe if referees made more no - calls on flop plays the players wouldn't do it. The refs need to do a better job in my opinion. Players are competitive. They wouldn't have gotten to that level if they were not. So they are gona do whatever it takes to win. I don't fault them for that. I have no problem with players that flop. I have a problem with referees who call fouls when players flop.

Who is the Most Valuable Sidekick?
I don't think he is intentionally. But yes he is. Because there is no way you can say he has no talent around him. He's got players. Good ones. Shumpert, Novak, J.R. Smith, Chandler, Baron Davis, Lin and landry fields. The rest of the squad sucks but those guys listed are money. If you put lebron with those guys they are contenders. Easily. Look who lebron took to the finals. Don't want to take the time to go find who was on their roster. But it wasn't much. I think Carmello should not be a number one option on a team. The problem is he has number one talent. He does have game, much game. But Jeremy Lin should defenitely be running the show there and setting up everyone else. All you need is a coach to make it happen. It is just to bad Lin is to soft in that respect. He defers to Melo and will never stand up to him and tell to shut up. To bad. Cause they could be very good with the team they got. But with Melo shooting all the time it ain't gona happen. I am not saying he should't shoot. He should. He is the most talented on the team. He should never be in isolation. He should be fed the ball by a point gaurd(or anybody) in rotation.

I believe OKC is the team to beat this year in playoffs. They have the best two player tandem in league with Durant and Westbrook. And Harden could be a freakin stud if he had his own team. Miami is the best in east. Indiana aint bad. But I would say San Antonio and OKC both have a much better chance than Miami. If Miami was in the Western Conference I don't think they would get to the Finals. Miami is a different team once they hit a obstacle. Once things start to go bad for them, they go bad. They can't bounce back. They are mentally challanged.
