Heard Kobe talk about how strong Carmelo is, and I remember a shot he took here about five years ago. Time was expiring, and he took a jump shot from about 6-8 feet the other side of the half court line. A jump shot, not a throw or heave. It went off the rim. I thought then about how strong you have to be to attempt that shot.

Me 'hating Melo' about 6 posts up.

This is before he got a bad case of rabbit ears, though.

This Lakers slide is fascinating. Not as a Nuggets fan, but more of a basketball fan in general. There's so much talent in that starting 5.


Anyways, Nuggies are up and down per usual. I went to the OKC game the other night, fun game. Easily the best home game (if not overall game) of the year.

A game of the old and injured against the pathetic. I'm thrilled the Celtics aren't the pathetic. Maybe they don't want Rondo back.

Went to the Nuggs game last night, good times. TNT must have been pissed, 2 30-point blowouts in 1 night? Yikes.

Nuggies taking care of business at home which is nice. I think they can hold down the 4 seed and maybe if Chris Paul is out for an extended period grab that 3 seed. I know they're not legitimate contenders but I think they can get out of the first round and take a step forward. I'm very happy with where they're at after their nightmare schedule to start the season.

This season has been a wrap for this Lakers team for a while. Only way to fix this moving forward is take control away from Jim Buss. He probably isn't qualified to make those decisions.

Jason what is the feeling in LA? Is what you said the general consensus? It's always interesting to me to hear what locals say rather than what the national guys say.

Particularly notable:
Lawson with 16 & 12 with a +40 +/-
Faried with 21 & 12 on 9/10 shooting
Chandler with 24 points in 19 minutes on 8/9 shooting including 5/5 from 3
Gonna beat a lot of teams when you shoot 58.1%!

Great streak theyre on. Lets see what they do in this 4 in 5. Should go 2-2 as a bare minimum, but I'm hoping for 3-1 to close out the first half of the season.

That's if they can even get a flight to the east coast! This blizzard is gonna be nasty.

But yeah, Nuggs are killing it! Love to see domination on both ends of the court like that game last night!

The next 24-48 hrs are going to be less than fun. On the bright side, my office bought us lunch today and they're letting us leave in a half an hour.

Folks out here are pissed off, and the finger is pointed at pretty much everybody. Fans have a number of different theories on what the issue is. Kobe haters still blame Kobe. Pau haters still call him soft. Folks have started to turn on Howard. Nash hasn't taken any heat. But I'd say that everybody is in agreement that Jim Buss has ruined the team, and D'antoni was a horrible hire. Those two guys get crapped on everyday out here.

There are Kobe haters? That's got to be a small fringe group, right? The guy is a legend.

Great win tonight. Even if it's just Cleveland, it's a road win. Maybe get tomorrow off, so they won't have to do a 4 in 5.

Can the Nuggets beat the Heatles in The NBA Finals?

Therefor, the Nuggets should exit quickly and allow the Thunder/Spurs a chance.

Believe it or not, some people hate rapists regardless of how good they are at basketball.

It really surprises me how bad the Lakers are playing given the talent on that team.
Basically a starting lineup of All Stars and they are below .500, just mind boggling.
Although reminds me of the year they had Gary Payton and Karl Malone, but those guys were at the end of their basketball lives. This is different.

Agree. And the team is on cruise control waiting for the playoffs to come. I think the birdman is a nice pickup. He can still provide some shot blocking and altered shots and brings some nice athleticism off the bench. Just keep the bonehead plays down. Allen, though sick lately, needs to get his rhythm back. He'll need to be ready come playoff time(which I think he will). All and all looks good us Heat fans.

Injury bug broke out for the Nuggies all at once. Perfect time though, right before the All-Star break. Everybody is day-to-day it seems, maybe we can get one or two back for tomorrow night.
