If I had to rank all 30 teams they would be in the 13-18 range as far as who I like.

I detest the Cavilers and Trailblazers. If this had happened to them I would feel exactly the same way.

I think this situation is so damaging to the league that I can look beyond liking or disliking the team and take an objective view.

Team physicals are almost a formality these days when joining a team or signing a new contract. But Jeff Green can now say that one saved his life.

They might not win the war, but at least they won THIS battle, and in such SWEET fashion!

Too bad they had no answer for Dwight tonight. He set a record for the most free throw attempts in a game. Brown Wilt's 1962 record.
David Lee looked like a toddler out there trying to handle him.

Overall the Magic are a pretty boring team to watch. Their offense consists of three possible outcomes. Throw it down to Dwight and let him post up, Dwight ends up at the free throw line or Dwight draws in the defense and then kicks it out where one of his teammates jacks up a three.
I have watched two Magic games this season and 95% of their possessions seem to end up in this fashion.

Howard ended up at the line 39 times and made 21. The Warriors were in the game right up until the final minute. Mark Jackson had a pretty good tactic going. Unfortunately I can see other teams employing this tactic.
This had to be the longest game non OT game I watched this season.

Sixers have been a lot of fun to watch so far, and have been absolutely demolishing teams at home. Play team ball too, have a core of young talented players, and a great coach.

The only thing that will be able to make this season truly remarkable and forever memorable is if Kobe almost single-handedly leads the Lakers past the Clippers and Heat in consecutive playoff series to win the championship. That would have to be the most ultimate F.U. of all time. Anything else is just gonna be meh.

Thinking thoughts as I wonder if my Warriors will ever become a contender again. Just can't see any light at the end of the tunnel right now.

I'm guessing the same way I became a Thunder fan over here. You watch the sport and pick up on certain things, players, games or moments and you latch onto them.

I always find it interesting how fans from other countries pick their teams. I'm a big Pistons fan myself. Actually work where they play.

Gotta say though your Thunder are looking good. Love me some Kevin Durant.

My buddy and I argue all the time about if you were to start a franchise today and could pick one player who would it be.

I always say Durant and he says Rose. It's a fun arguement.

LeBron is only 27. I would still take him over anyone else. Even my beloved Durant. LeBron is a potential triple double any given night.

Part of my reasoning not to take Lebron is just personal I guess. I can't stand anything Cleveland related but what he did to that franchise and their fans is inexcusable. I have no problem leaving that was his right, but to have a prime time special under the guise of "charity" to announce it is just inexcusable to me. He lost me right there and I respected him a ton before that.

But I'm bringing up old stuff anyway lol. Glad he isn't in the Pistons division anymore to torture us all the time.

Run-TMC

Started following the NBA, NFL and MLB all around '89-'90. Picked the Dubs 'casue of Run-TMC, the Bengals 'cause my team in the Australian NRL was the Balmain Tigers and the Braves pretty much 'cause they made the World Series in '91. First baseball games I saw was the 1990 World Series and I was tempted to go for the Reds but loved following that Braves team in '91. Those are my three teams and I've stuck with them ever since.

As long as winning isn't your goal, he's great.

I'd rather have a guy like Derek Rose, Dwyane Wade, or Kobe Byrant.

James is looking more and more like he'll end up being remembered as the best sidekick in NBA history.
