I'm sure it wasn't difficult to become a Lakers fan in the 80's.


It was a tough time during the 90s with the Lakers, Magic had HIV and everything pretty much crashed and burned from there. It wasn't until 96' when Shaq arrived that everything turned around but that wasn't enough because the Sonics, Spurs, Jazz pretty much dominated that era.

Explain this for me, then, Tony. He didn't mean what he typed?

I'll let him explain, but my assumption is that he meant that LeBron has more ability than Magic and can do things that Magic couldn't do. LeBron is bigger, stronger, and faster and at his best is just an absolute force of nature. The problem is he hasn't been at his best enough, hasn't been consistent enough, and too often hasn't gotten it done when the lights were shining the brightest. Thus he hasn't accomplished what Magic did and probably never will.

OKC is starting to hit their stride again and I don't know if anyone stands a chance. I think the youth is going to kill the Spurs like it did LA. It would be so awesome if the Pacers finished the Heat, the heat look close to melting down.

Re OKC/Spurs I think the Spurs present a lot more problems than the Lakers did.

Re Heat/Pacers the problem the Heat have is that w/o Bosh LeBron and Wade have to stand on their heads every game to win. Will be difficult for them to do that.

I'll give you stronger. Magic was taller but not as thick. Magic was faster with the ball in his hands, which is what matters. As far as more ability, I don't think so. Maybe better pure physical ability but Magic played the game at a higher level. Lebron is certainly the better outside shooter, although Magic got better later in his career. I know for sure which one I'd take if I were building a team.

I suppose that means that the Lakers weren't relevant for about half a decade. That's a pretty short period of time for a big market team like them to not make an impact. Honestly, I wasn't really watching basketball during those years while I was getting my career off the ground so I can't speak intelligently about those teams. Shaq has always rubbed me the wrong way though. It would have been so much cooler if a man of such immense physical talent wasn't so self aware and promoting about that fact. I mean how tough can it be to be that big and be that successful in basketball? I think his greatest defining factor regarding his character towards basketball is that he didn't ever think he needed to make a free throw. I could teach a monkey to have a better average than he did. The man didn't need to work that hard to be what he was; an effective big man with the character of a sloth.

I think the bottom line is that LeBron isn't nearly as bright as Magic is, in basketball or anything else. I doesn't matter if he is more talented, he'll never be a Magic because he's just not capable.

Since the lakers couldn't take it back to LA, OKC should have a bit of time off too. Sunday night is game 1 so both teams will be ready to go. Gonna be crazy. Regular season doesn't mean much, but spurs got them 2-1. One game they were up like 30 points. Both wins Parker played great. The loss he played terrible.

This series is going to come down to Parker. If he's slumping Leanord and green need to pick up the slack with timely 3 pointers. Something they've done all year.

haha should we start talking about how LeBron James is underrated? Jeez. Lebron's basketball IQ is insane. He's proven he can play all 5 positions (though he needs to work on his low post game...and foul shooting), is one of the top scorers in the game, the best all around player in the game, and the best perimeter defender in the game.

I never suggested he was terrible. He's a great player but he's not Magic or MJ-esq, yet. The basketball IQ I'm referencing is his ability around leadership. He doesn't seem to have it and he can't close out games. I believe one feeds off of the other. Both Magic and MJ had their teams on their shoulders, and wanted them there. LeBron is mediocre in that capacity, IMO.

We're gonna have to agree to disagree on this. He dragged some dog**** cleveland teams pretty far in the playoffs year after year. He's not a ballhog, never has been, always seems to find the open man. He will defer to open guys in big moments, but its not like he's NEVER hit big shots.

Fair enough. I like the guy. He's fun to watch and certainly a talented dude. He just doesn't strike me as a solid leader. I met MJ and Magic a couple of times. One of my close buddies was the son of the lead attorney for the olympic training center in Colorado Springs, when the Dream Team was training. We were allowed to ride in the bus with them from the Springs to McNichols. Magic was charisma in silence and MJ was the biggest **** talker I've ever seen. I think he had 7 running bets before we got to Denver but he had everyone's attention and had challenged them positively. Magic just smiled and said, "My bets pay off on the court.". There was a wave of "OOO's and What, Whats' and Michael said, "You'll still owe me 50 dollars."

I almost think the Pacers got in their own heads LOL .....

Trying to play the bully or tough young guys vs a team that has more talent then them instead of playing their game and relying on what got them there.

Which would give them a way better shot vs the Heat.

I didn't expect them to beat the Heat before series because of how young they was and not having a "star" , but they did prove if they play their best game they could beat about anyone... But night in and night out that's just hard to rely on without a guy who can get his own shot and create...


And Go Celtics btw... Be great if they could somehow get another ring before they maybe break them up.

Although being dominated like that late in the series can let the air out, they are a well coached team, Play good defense, and play great as a team; there lack of a #1 scorer hurts them, when the team is in a funk. I still expect this to go 7.

The Pacers DESERVE where they are in the series. They are playing better TEAM basketball. They are playing like something is at stake ...which it is. They have more balanced shooting from their starters. They aren't shooting 5 out of 42 from the arc in the series. They are out-rebounding the Heat. They simply want it more.

When LeBron and Wade settle for jumpers the Heat are very beatable. When they take the ball to the hole they are really tough to beat. I think they've done more of the latter in the last two games.

OKC's ability to run is predicated upon them forcing turnovers, and the Spurs are one of the more veteran savvy teams in the NBA. San Antonio had the 3rd fewest turnovers, where as OKC had the most in the regular season. It's just a terrible combination.

From individual matchups, the only position where I feel OKC has an advantage is with Durant. Yeah, if he goes HAM on the rookie, Leonard, OKC has a good shot. I don't see that happening 4 out of 7 times tho, and definitely don't see any advantages anywhere else. Everywhere else, from coaching to guard play to front court to bench I feel is an advantage to San Antonio (with the possible exception of Westbrook vs Parker being a draw.. although Id still give the edge to Parker).

How are the spurs old? Just cause one guy is? Duncan looks better than most younger players in the league right now. That old arguement goes out the window last year. Too many young kids on their team for them to be labeled old. When you play 20 some minutes a game old is no excuse.

NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James was the leading vote-getter for the league's all-defensive squad Wednesday, while Defensive Player of the Year Tyson Chandler didn't even crack the first team.

Confused? So were plenty of others -- even a Harvard graduate.

Jeremy Lin, Chandler's teammate in New York, took to Twitter to ask for an explanation of how that was possible.

The answer is because the voting is done by different parties. A media panel voted for Defensive Player of the Year, while the all-defensive team vote was conducted by the league's 30 head coaches, who voted for a first and second team by position and were not allowed to pick their own players...

James totaled 53 points, including 24 first-team votes. He averaged 1.9 steals and 7.9 rebounds as Miami ranked fourth in the league in opponent scoring.

---

I like how Lebron being clutch (which is another whole different discussion) is only factored offensively. Shouldn't him taking the best player out on the other team with seconds to go, or within the last 5 minutes to go, and completely shuting him down, not considered "clutch?"

Jeremy Lin, Chandler's teammate in New York, took to Twitter to ask for an explanation of how that was possible.

The answer is because the voting is done by different parties. A media panel voted for Defensive Player of the Year, while the all-defensive team vote was conducted by the league's 30 head coaches, who voted for a first and second team by position and were not allowed to pick their own players...

James totaled 53 points, including 24 first-team votes. He averaged 1.9 steals and 7.9 rebounds as Miami ranked fourth in the league in opponent scoring.

---

I like how Lebron being clutch (which is another whole different discussion) is only factored offensively. Shouldn't him taking the best player out on the other team with seconds to go, or within the last 5 minutes to go, and completely shuting him down, not considered "clutch?"

Congrats to King James!!!!!!!

Best player in the world!

Lossing Haslem with Bosh being hurt is a big deal.

The Heat are going to have to dig down, claw their way, and hopefully attain that W. Going to be a heck of a game in Indiana. Their crowd will be rocking. Gonna have to fight for every point.

Guys, the Kobe foul was hard but it was a play on the ball. It was appropriately called a flagrant 1. Hard foul no doubt, but nothing malicious IMO and in a series that was hard faught but never really in danger of getting out of control. There weren't any stoppages of play, no near fights, etc. Remember, context matters.

Conversely, Haslem barely made any play on the ball at all. He straight went for Hansbrough's face. The second guy stuck his elbow in the Pacers' face, which is extremely dangerous. PLUS, you have this in a series which is borderline getting out of control. Again, context matters. These guys have had to be separated on numerous occasions already.

Sorry, you guys are really reaching on this one. Kobe's foul was a hard one but not malicious. Go to ESPN and watch the replay. Not the same thing IMO.

...The Heat played this perfectly: They made Stephenson pay for that choke sign to James in Game 2 and showed the Pacers and everyone else standing between Miami and a championship that they’ll defend their star. And they did it with Pittman, a player the Heat could afford to take a suspension without costing the team. What’s more, Miami has re-dictated terms of this Eastern conference semifinals. The Heat lead 3-2, and they may have the Pacers thinking more about retaliation in Game 6 than playing well enough to win.

Perhaps Pittman decided to deliver that devastating shot to Stephenson, but a source close to Pittman insisted it simply wouldn’t be in Pittman's DNA to execute that plan on his own. Howard had been on the trail of Stephenson throughout the weekend, calling him out near the Pacers' locker room on Saturday and confronting him on the floor before Sunday's game.

I was standing courtside when Howard approached Stephenson before Game 4. Howard was angry, barking at Stephenson, telling him he better learn to shut his mouth. Stephenson had that uneasy smile, trying to play it cool, but he was clearly unnerved about the possibility that Howard had come over to fight him. Stephenson is useless to the Pacers, but the rest of the roster watched and listened to Howard come calling for him. This was no accident. Howard’s a pro, and he seemed determined to impact this series without ever having to play a meaningful minute...

You're entitled to your opinion, but I just don't agree. The only difference I can see in the two fouls is that Kobe hits Faried from behind, where as Haslem fronts Hans. I think you could argue that the Kobe foul was worse, in that Faried had NO way to protect himself from it... where as Hans at least saw it was coming, and could prepare for the hit. There was almost no risk of an injury to Hans imo. Also Faried was also up more in the air and was more exposed to a possible hit. So as far as there being an injury risk, Faried had a much bigger risk of being hurt.

If the leagues is going to have a bunch of rules to protect players safety, they need to be properly applied. I don't remember the last time a star player got ejected from a game or suspended.. it just doesn't happen very often, if at all. Either the star players of the league never commit an infraction that is worthy of a suspension... or the rules are not applied universally. I dunno how anyone could reach a different conclusion then that, to be honest. If that hit is done on Derek Rose, LeBron James, Wade, etc... it's a flagrant 2 no questions asked.

The only argument I could really see for not suspending Kobe, yet suspending Haslem is it being possibly premeditated in the case of the Heat. I've went on record saying that I don't think either should have been suspended, but if Haslem was to be suspended.. Kobe should have too, no question. I'll say the same thing for the Wade flagrant early in the series against the Pacers as well. I still think player safety should trump the recent history of teams. Plays need to be judged on an individual basis, and where there was an unnecessary risk to a players safety, the appropriate and consistent action needs to be taken.

It's just a different standard as far as rules being enforced. The NBA has an agenda to protect its stars, and it has really come out in this years playoffs. Me believing that is not the same thing as the conspiracy theorists that think the league is fixed by the refs and all that.

So as far as there being an injury risk, Faried had a much bigger risk of being hurt.

So, any time somebody goes up for a dunk or a lay up, they should be let go? Just like in the NFL, leave the ground at your own risk. Contrary to popular belief, basketball is a contact sport. This type of play happens every single week in the NBA. Fast break, block attempt, a lot of contact. This is pretty standard. Kobe made an honest attempt on the ball.

If the leagues is going to have a bunch of rules to protect players safety, they need to be properly applied. I don't remember the last time a star player got ejected from a game or suspended.. it just doesn't happen very often, if at all.

You're wrong here, and what's great is that I can prove it. In fact, DWade is even featured. You mentioned him by name.

Here's Kobe's foul on Manimal:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/v7D6my103_U" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Now here is Tyler Hansbrough's foul on super duper star Dwayne Wade:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/XRngyhNvyVU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

A couple things:
1) It's not a flagrant 2 no question. In fact, it was a flagrant 1 on the court, and only upgraded to a 2 after review.
2) The two plays are strikingly similar. Guy going hard to the basket, defender making a play on the ball and giving the defender a pretty good hit to the head/face. A flagrant 1 was assessed on the court in both cases. No suspensions given out in either scenario since the defenders were making legitimate plays on the ball.
3) Just so we're clear, that is a bench player from a small market Tyler Hansbrough giving mega super duper star from a big market Dwayne Wade a hard foul. Somehow, David Stern didn't have a heart attack right then and there. Shocking, I know.

The only argument I could really see for not suspending Kobe, yet suspending Haslem is it being possibly premeditated in the case of the Heat. I've went on record saying that I don't think either should have been suspended, but if Haslem was to be suspended.. Kobe should have too, no question.

Here's the Haslem foul:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Y5xc1TF5FnY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

How can you possibly say the Kobe foul was the same thing or worse? There was ZERO play on the ball by Haslem. He went specifically for Hansbrough's face, it's pretty clear. And not only that, but I'm going to repeat: CONTEXT MATTERS. These two teams have been at each other's throats since game 1. Yes, Stern is going to prevent a fight before it happens if he can. And I don't blame him.

And then there's this:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ngQkcfITJcs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Again, a play that was purely to hurt somebody, nothing more. These two plays are flat-out nowhere near the same as the Kobe foul or the Hansbrough foul. Period. These plays were malicious and in the case of the elbow to the jaw, very dangerous. Neither had any sort of play on the basketball. Period.

It's just a different standard as far as rules being enforced. The NBA has an agenda to protect its stars, and it has really come out in this years playoffs. Me believing that is not the same thing as the conspiracy theorists that think the league is fixed by the refs and all that.

I... don't know what to say. It sounds like you're part of that fringe group on Nuggets fans who will never be happy with the NBA until David Stern announces the Lakers are disbanded. Again, I know I didn't change your mind, but you're reaching here.

I don't see how you don't understand the difference between those two fouls. Kobe blatantly clothes-lines him in the head while he's in a vulnerable position also being fouled underneath. Yes, after he hits him in the head the ball happens to be on the other side but when he started that foul, the ball wasn't any where near the path of his clothes-line. Tyler Hansbrough's foul was clearly playing the ball all the way through the foul. Simple as that. And if you think Kobe wasn't trying to hurt him, your nuts. Manimal was tearing them up that game.

"I like this team," World Peace said. "You look at the team, you all saw some of the amazing things we did. OKC, we had those guys beat fairly easy. Fairly easy we had those guys beat."


Added World Peace: "We had them beat. Stunned. So stunned. It's stunning."

Rhymes: This honestly seems like a situation where two people see similar plays, and for whatever reason seem to have a completely opposite reaction to it. Every time, I see the Hans foul on Wade, it appears that he actually blocks the shot and then hits Wade on the follow through. I don't really see how it's comparable to what Kobe did.

Wade is not exposed and not in the same vulnerable position as Faried either. Hans is in front of Wade as he drives, and not behind the entire time as Kobe is. I think that if a player's attempt of defense is taking a swipe at the head/upper shoulder area from behind under the hopes that they might hit the basketball/it might be deemed a play on the ball... while a player is elevated and very vulnerable from a collision he doesn't see coming... can't say I'm fond of that brand of defense.

If he fronted him, wouldn't have a problem with it.
If he attempted to make a play on the ball without going through Faried's head, I'm okay with it.

I don't want the Lakers disbanded from the league and I don't think players should give up on plays. I do think they should be careful when a player is elevated, and not try to do a play that leaves the opposition open for a serious injury. Faried has had plenty of blocks this season, from behind and shockingly, he hasn't had to go through the oppositions upper body for it to take place (although they have been susceptible to drop kicks apparently...)

Wade has stepped the **** up. King James is amazing. Give it up to Rio, Miller, UD, Shane, and the rest of the team. This team is good. Real good. Hopefully CB1 comes back healthy soon.

I agree. Miller was drilling his shots today. Rest is going to do him wonders bc he runs up the court like my grandfather. Wade is back to his playoff form. Lebron was clutch again, oops I forgot, it is considered only "clutch" when he is missing his shots.

To be honest, I don't expect CB back till about game 3 of the finals, if we make it. But great win man, cuz we need some rest.

Could be a matchup thing, so maybe if the C's beat the Sixers they'll be more trouble than I'm thinking. But generally playoff basketball is a different beast. And the fact that a very mediocre Sixers team is giving the C's so much difficulty I wouldn't have a lot of confidence in them at this point.

You could also throw in Greg Monroe. Bynum needs a new taem. And when Kobe goes ham ball(last game is good example, 42 points on 33 shots), Gasol/Bynum lose interest. bynum needs to go somewhere else and not play with Kobe. Probably the best part of the Lakers last game was ohhhh Kobe stil got it, ohhhh he so good, ohhh he's still top 5 player. He should've been feeding the 7 footers.

Yep, rest until Monday night while the sixers/celtics have one tomorrow. CB1 I think will be back for game 2, but he could aggravate his injury in 5 minutes on the floor. In some ways you have to think there will be no Bosh back. Because of this I think a potential matchup with the Spurs would be ideal.

Their ball movement is how they live by the 3 pointer. They're going to continue to hit open looks for the most part. Expecting to beat them by hoping they have a bad shooting night 4 out of 7 times, is not very realistic.

Question ... I've been in and out of the room and missed the why in this , but why is Jordan's jersey hanging in Miami ????

Pat Riley respected Jordan so much that he retired his jersey in Miami. Jordan is/was the only player in basketball that has his jersey retired by a team that he never played for.

The Celtics don't want to go away. This is a pretty good game. I'm wondering if we'll be seeing Maven tonight.

Its kind of disgusting that the Celtics are wearing these uniforms with black. This is a team that values tradition. Tradition is a part of their brand. The uniforms are part of that. These alternate uniforms suck.

How was that not a foul on Rondo? His head clearly ran right into Wades hand.

Yeah refs missed a big one, but holy **** Rondo has been magnificent tonight. 44/8/10? Ridiculous.

Rondo is just insane at times.

How Boston keeps trying to trade him is nuts to me.

Well even in victory, he's still LeBrick.

I guess Maven won't run off like the little broad that he/she is.

Yea I know . Dude is just so solid. Does so many things well. I would think he's perfect to try to build around.

King James had a great game today. Last play he should've drived to the basket against Rondo and not settled for the jumper.

Got the win Le Lo
