Captain Smith-ing With UConn Athletics
- Oct 7, 2012
Can we just fast-forward to the lottery show? The only thing I care about is how many ping pong balls the Knickerbockers will have in the can.
Maybe the lottery gods will reward the Knicks for competing and trying to win. I like the young nucleus with the rookies Knox, Robinson and Trier, Frank is still just 20 and already getting some tough love from Fizdale. At least their more watchable now and the future appears bright, I'm cautiously optimistic because its the Knicks.Can we just fast-forward to the lottery show?

They really need to add jr Smith to that grow up so we can have all the knuckleheads on one team.Can't imagine how lebron must feel on this team. A veteran professional focusing on prolonging his career--dealing with Rondo, McGhee, ingram and Stevenson every day. Good grief.
Looks like 4, 3, 2 game suspensions. Ingram 4, Rondo 3, Paul 2
Whats going on the Celtics can't even beat a tanking Knicks team at home with the Knicks on the 2nd night of a back to back. Celtics were down by as many as 26.The season is over 20% over, and the Celtics are 9-8. Even with a coach as good as Brad Stevens, the Celtics are a perfect example of how rotisserie basketball and real basketball are two different things. I don't know what the right move is, but I think someone has to go.
Kemba Walker is having a monster year.
I know it won't last, but 20% of the way into the season, the Clippers and Grizzlies are tied for 1st in the West.
There are already rumors that the Wizards are going to start dumping players. It is amazing how toxic Dwight Howard has become at the end of his career.
The Knicks being terrible never gets old.
Letting Julius Randle and Brook Lopez go is looking worse every day for Magic Johnson.
I love what the nets have done. Finding dinwiddie and Harris (draft sleepers of mine when they came out) and making deals like the Russell deal to give them chances on hitting big with post hype guys, and eating salary to get draft capital....rooks is a really bright guy. I expect them to become a destination in the next 2-3 yearsThis is one of the most interesting NBA seasons that I can remember. Only 5 teams are effectively out of the race for a playoff spot. None of the top teams look particularly dominant, although that could change when Cousins starts playing for Golden State.
Celtics have to get rid of someone. There aren't enough basketballs for that team.
The Heat are starting their annual January surge, and they don't even have Dragic for another month.
Clippers, Heat and Nets are easy teams to root for.
Detroit can get both in theory.Gasol and Conley on the market. It will be interesting to see what the Grizzlies can get for them. Conventional wisdom is that Conley is more valuable than Gasol, but Conley has $67 million left on his contract and is 31 years old, right at the tipping point for a point guard. Indiana seems like the most logical destination for Conley. Detroit could get in the mix for either but they are at the cap. Clippers are holding cap space open for the summer, so I don't see them committing to either of these guys unless there is a contract restructure.
