before i go on, let me get this out of the way for eric.


quote:

By Eric (mjfan23) on Monday, October 26, 2009 - 7:13 pm:


the lakers are overrated.
pau is soft.
kobe sucks.
kobe will never be as good as jordan.
kobe will never be jordan.
jordan is the best player ever.






now on to the 09-10 nba season.

ron artest is the key to the lakers repeating. if he stays within the system and plays his usual tough "d", the lakers will be dominant. they'll be even more dominant if bynum finally plays to his potential. we'll see if the pre-injury bynum shows up this season.

the 2nd best team in the west will be the spurs. i don't think the nuggets will go as far as they did last year. they may be challenged in their division by portland, though w/ batum out for who knows how long, it might be tough for the blazers. dallas is going nowhere...jason kidd's done. houston's going nowhere w/ yao ming out indefnitely...and tracy mcgrady's done.

the celtics are gonna be tough to beat in the east. i think the only 2 teams to challenge them will be orlando and cleveland. yes, i know orlando lost hedo turkoglu and courtney lee, but who else would challenge the celtics other than the cavs? detroit's done. chicago's not quite there. miami's still missing a couple players to be a threat.

anyone think the shaq signing will backfire on the cavs? i do. he may come in slimmer and in better shape but i don't think he can stay consistent the whole season. his age will show.

my predictions, assuming all the key players stay healthy:

mvp: lebron james
defensive player of the year: dwight howard
rookie of the year: blake griffin

western conference finals: lakers vs spurs
western conference champs: lakers 4-1

eastern conference finals: celtics vs magic
eastern conference champs: celtics win 4-1

nba champs: lakers win 4-2

Anyone see what Lebron said:

"If I really wanted to, if I really wanted to be the scoring [champion] every single year -- every single year -- I could really do it."

I don't think, at this point, anyone doubts that this is true, but it doesn't stop James from looking like a complete jerk (which he is) for saying it.

If directed at me, same...

If Kobe started the season and said to himself, "I think I will lead the league in scoring, that is my goal for the year...." I have no doubt that he would....in fact, I'd put money on it.

The more interesting question is if SPM would think Kobe was a jerk and be offended with such a comment...

I freely admit that if Kobe had said it, I would be totally cool with it, lol. I just don't like James in the first place, so this just gives me all the more reason to trash on him. Plus, I didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night, so I'm in an extra anti-anything-but-Lakers mood.

Besides, this thread has been a little quiet the last few weeks, so I figured I'd stir the pot a bit.

Probably said it because with the east already decided he'll probably play less leading up to the playoff run. Now Durant will be needing wins and will probably overtake James before seasons end. And i agree w/ EJ, if kobe wanted to lead the league, he would.

I don't really mind the quote.. and we all know I'm no LeBron fan. You know why I don't mind? Because it's true. Just as it would be true if Kobe said something like that.

If Kobe did say something like that, Eric would be all over the forum trashing him.

Of course I would. Lebron speaks the truth. If kobe said that it be nothing but a lie. Kobe is on the downward end of his average career. Three more years and pathetic Laker fans will be calling for his head.

I'm no Kobe fan(in fact I hate him), but you think his career is only "average"? He's won 4 championships, a NBA Finals MVP, one NBA MVP, a gold medal in the Olympics, 11 time All-Star, 2nd most points in a NBA game (81) and he's probably going to set a handful of Lakers records as well. And you still think he's "average"? Lay off the haterade and realize that Kobe is a GREAT player.

Average. Volume Shooter has one ring. Shaq has 3.

This is prety spot on, and I absolutely HATE him too. I do tend to think he's a bit overrated in the grand scheme of the NBA and the history of the game, mostly due to the modern media machine. However, to say he is an average player is ignorant and makes you look silly.

Anyone see the Andrew Bogut injury tonight? That was quite possibly one of the most disgusting injuries I have seen.

Does it though??

Ill break this down for you slow brained folk.

Kobe broke into the league right when Jordan left. The media was desperately seeking for the next "MJ".

Lakers during there title runs: You take shaq out for injuries there record an average 12-11. Take Kobe out there record 25-7. LA had a better record without Kobe. Claim Bull? Thats fine, but if you watched them play, a selfish Kobe continually took poor shots as a young buck. Kobe playing through Shaq, was when it worked.

Kobe has underperformed significantly. How many great players have shot under 40 percent in the finals? Kobe has done it, not once, not twice, but 4 or 5 times.

Volume shooter is what he is. A volume shooter. Julius Erving shot .506 , Magic Johnson shot .520, Oscar Robertson shot 485, Larry Bird shot .496, and Michael Jordan shot .497 for their career. Kobe has also shot worse than the players playing today that will eventually make this list Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Kobe around .455.

LA wins when Kobe doesn't shoot much. When Kobe shoots 21 or less shots the Lakers are 39-3. Show me the stat like that for Jordan? Wade? Lebron? There is not one..

Kobe is not a leader. Lebron gets everything he can out of a non talented team, does kobe? No Kobe would rather walk out on his team and demand to be traded.

Kobe clutch? Nope, not as clutch as some surrounding players in the league. Stats prove that as well. http://www.82games.com/gamewinningshots.htm

Want to compare and average player to a champion.
Michael Jordan:
16 seasons.
6 rings.
6 finals MVPs.
10 scoring titles.
1 defensive POY
5 MVPS

Volume Shooter:
13 seasons.
4 rings.
1 finals MVP.
2 scoring titles.
0 defensive POYs.
1 MVP.

Seems pretty average when compared to greatness...

It is tough enough to win on the road against great teams..... Unfortunatly it is a HUGE game for the Jazz tonight and I have a feeling that the Lakers are going to come out VERY strong and put that road trip behind them....

with that said, deron carries the ball more than any other nba player...ever! that's right, i said that, too!

Wow, I am so upset right now. I missed the game on Saturday night and just saw a score at the end of the 3rd and saw they were killing the Suns, so I didn't bother to go read anything about the game until last night. Wow!!!! In the back of my head all I kept thinking was, I hope Bogut stays healthy. He joins the long list of Bigs who just can't stay healthy.

Damn! I thought they had a real shot at stealing a series from somone. I'm sure Skiles will still have them playing competitively, but that just sucks!

The Cavs really are not that untalented without LeBron. Granted not fantastic, but easily equal to or better than what Kobe had in LA before Gasol came over.

To me comparing players of this generation to the likes of Jordan, Bird, Magic, etc. is useless. Hardly any of the "greats" of today have accomplished cr@p compared to those guys. In this day the media hype's these guys up so much. Not that they don't deserve the credit, they are some of the best players in the NBA right now. I don't think you start labeling someone as "one of the greatest" ever until their career is finished and you can look at their whole body of work.

David, I agree with you in a lot of respects, however, in Bird/Magics day being a great basketball player was enough. Today you have to be a great athelete first to even make the league. That's what made Jordan so unstoppable in his era. Look at LeBron, the dude is a beast. He could play middle linebacker in the NFL. Just a completely different game.

Talking about comparing different era's. How many points would Shaq get in his prime if he could sit under the rim like Wilt or how many Championships and Defensive Player awards would he have if he could goaltend like B. Russel.

Shaq in his prime, in my opinion, the single most dominant player to ever play the game. MJ, in my opinion, can't touch him for dominance. Clutch, Jordan all the way. Taking 3 completely different teams to 6 NBA Finals in my opinion is much tougher than taking the same team, with the same coach, like Jordan did.

Right, because so many 31 year old non-"volume" shooters are playing as well as Kobe. He rested his legs for two games because it's the end of the regular season. Do you really think Kobe would have sat out for something this minor if it was any other time of the season?

No I would have guessed he would have played... Then after missing constant shots he would point to his knee and wince, or probably complain to the ref. With an end result of scoring 30 (people saying how great he played) although taking 45 shots having 15 turnovers.

I've been seeing this around the league. Chicago beat Cleveland even though they were up by only 1 for like the last minute-and-a-half. Chicago missed 4 freethrows in a row and Cleveland kept trying to give it to Sideshow Bob, I mean Varejo for a gamer winner. Complete pathetic basketball. I know for those still fighthing for position there is probably some good ball being played, but it seems few and far between. Let's get the playoffs started!

so no miracles and no homecourt for jazz. suns are playing well.
Lakers w/ homecourt throughout the west would not suprise me to lose in the1st round. They think they can flip the proverbial switch...but there isnt one. They just dont play well and havnt the entire 2nd half of the season. Theyre a weak shooting team that takes bad shots and doesnt make them, they forget to run the offense and almost all are playing hurt. A pedestrian effort at best nightly. I would be really suprised if they came out of the West. Durant, Westbrook and OKC could run them off the court and torch them. I think Dallas is more talented, deeper and playing better.
Cleveland has all its eggs in the 2010 title basket. They made the trades, paid the $, rested their 25 yr old superstar the last 4-5 games and have to win. If they get upset...Brons gone and it was all for zip.
So lets get the 2nd season started!

I think the Lakers definitely took the second half of the season and the Western Conference race for granted. After the start of the new year, they looked like they were just killing time waiting for the playoffs. That being said, they played under .600 in the second half of the season and STILL got the best record in the west. I think they've all been longing from the playoffs and we'll see them turn it up big time.

I wish Bogut wouldn't have gotten hurt.... it would have been nice to root for my state's team, with him there I think they could have caused an upset or two as well.

I hope the Cavs do it this year.... Shaq is healthy now too right?

Richardson sounded off on both Garnett and Pierce after the game.

"I was trying to get over there to take the ball out of bounds and [Garnett] started to talk to me, so I talked back. I don't have any business talking to him, he was on the ground crying. I don't know what was going on, two actresses over there, that's what they are.

"I just get surprised by people's actions when I know them better than that. They're not those characters they portray. They're not who they say they are, Garnett and Pierce, they're good basketball players and that's about it.

"I said to Jermaine, he's OK because I knew nobody touched him," explained Richardson. "Is he taking another break like he does so many times? Sometimes he falls like he's about to be out for the season and then he gets right up, that's all I said.
Could Richardson be any more spot on? I've never really been a big fan of Pierce and I don't really mind KG, but their antics are getting rather annoying. I never really noticed how Pierce likes to take plays off or "cries wolf" to fake an injury until reading what Richardson had to say about the little mini scuffle. Does this bring back any memories to far Lakers fans involving a wheelchair and Pierce making a "miraculous comeback?"

I like Pierce and Garnett MUCH, MUCH more than I like Richardson....but you are right, he is spot on....


Jazz are in SERIOUS TROUBLE.... 2 of their top 4 players are done for the series.... Memo being done for the next 9+ months.... Guess they can now play with zero pressure, just run and have fun....but done like dinner IMO....

Considering that I've never played one minute of basketball in my life that wasn't HORSE.. you're right! You have definitely played at a much higher level than me. Nice job!

Where has all of that knowledge and experience gotten you Eric? A nobody clinging to LeBron's jock, wishing you had one percent of the talent and fame that he has? Congratulations!

Me playing at a high level has given me the knowledge and wisdom about the game of basketball and that I can share with pawns to the game, such as Joe. No worries Joe, your welcome.

About Lebron, I wouldn't even call myself a Lebron fan, not sure where that point came from. Id much prefer to watch Melo play. I did however watch Lebrons high school team get buried by a team I personally buried scoring 28. Advice to Lebron : Play more like me, apparently.

had you mentioned that you're in med school, that would've solidified your case.

does that mean the other team scored less the 28 points total?

Because, as we all know, the only people qualified to comment on a subject are those that have experienced it personally. Just like how members of congress are the only ones who are qualified to speak about and make decisions regarding politics. Oh, wait...

Richardson is saying what everyone already knows. Pierce, especially, is the greatest actor (and baby) in the NBA.

That was a fun game last night....

Utah has nothing to lose and can play loose. In the end, with no depth.....I fear they cannot continue to do this. Having at least a day and often 2 days rest will help.

Lasts nights game was terribly officiated both ways. Denver has some serious defensive concerns.

the Mavs are going to take it all this year. Dirk is on fire! shot the highest % with the most points the other night of any player in over 20 years
I think he had 30 points and over 80% shooting

Of all the teams in the NBA... I'm most concerned about the Mavs. They're having a great run!

The Mavs picking up Butler was huge. I wonder if the Lakers would take him back?

post-butler era:

wizards = no ring
lakers = 2 finals appearances, 1 ring
