    Believe it or not, I agree with you to a certain degree. And that is why AI won the MVP in 2001.

    With that said, let's face it, man, Walker who somehow was thought to be a star when he really should've been a career bench player. Meanwhile, Shaq, Payton and Mourning are all WAY past their prime... I think even my grandma can post up Shaq now! Ha! :lol: I think this season would be a great indicator to judge whether D-Wade or Arenas deserves more of our vote. Don't forget LeBron. I like that young man.

    What's with the Kobe dissin'?

    I mean, isn't he like, one of the top 3 best player from the last 6-7 years, with Iverson? I mean, he might be a prick off-court, but on the court... he does magic :agreed:
    Last year, he finished way ahead of everyone in pts per game.
    Bryant = mvp

    Hey, you misunderstood, my friend. I AM a Lakers fan!!! And I love Kobe's game. However, he is off to a somewhat slow start thus far. He needs time to get back into game shape. So as of right now, I think LeBron, Gil and D-Wade are all doing better than Kobe at this point of the season. It is a long season, and we will see their progress by January or sooner.

    On a side note, the Lakers ain't going to win anything this year, but I like what I see out of those kids so far. I just hope Kwame comes back sooner and plays more consistantly from now on.

    I meant, generally speaking...
    But i'm a liitle affraid of his slow start.... :ugh: need... to .... bounce... back...:ugh:

    Is there a reason he's not into great "game shape"?

    I'll have to agree Lebron is pure magic too.

    Yeah, I am very disappointed to see another brawl. It was totally uncalled for, un-professional. I think Collins' foul that got the whole thing started was intentional and I think he deserves at least a one-game suspension for that.

    Meanwhile, what the HELL was Melo thinking?! I do not care who said or did what to who on the court, he should never ever have punched anyone! I am sorry, if O'Neal got suspended for 25 games for that 2004 brawl, I think Melo should get at least 35. After all, his punch lands on someone!!!

    Me, I liked basketball back in the early nineties the most, especially the Lakers with Magic Johnson, James Worthy, AC Green, etc. My father has always followed the Celtics and i've been to few games. :yesway:

    Now these days, I watch very little basketball but I still like it. I thought Shaq w/the Lakers and Kobe Bryant were a great team, it's too bad they aren't on the same team anymore, I still like alot of the other teams out there though and basketball is a fun sport to play too. :agreed:

    I agree completely. And even more so, it looks like Knicks' coach Isaiah Thomas CALLED for the intentional hard foul. Becaue he is a sore loser. "Don't score on us any more!"

    Fuck that.

    Stuff like this drives people away from the NBA. Sad indeed.

    How about the Bulls, though? They're on a roll!

    Right on.

    In the post game interview he said something like :"We already surrendered..." Does he mean the game or the season? :scratch: I wanted to tell Thomas to shut his noise hole up, and they should just stop losing by 20 points regularly at home; before he tells what other coaches how they should coach. Man, I feel bad for all Knicks fans...

    And Rummy is right, things like this drive causal fans away.

    What's done is done, let's move on and talk about the season thus far, shall we?

    How about the Phoenix Suns, people? They won 14 in a row after a very slow start. Guys like Diaw and Amare are finally looking like their old selves. And that Nash guy... oh, man, he is averaging 16 pts and 10 plus assists a game during this run (helped lead the Suns to a 5-0 Eastern road trip), ain't that awesome?

    The Bulls, also started the season very shaky and I think their investment in Ben Wallace is slowly paying off. Sure, PJ Brown is now making some noise about his future, but I think sooner or later things with the Bulls will be settled... unlike in Philly... can't believe they started the season 3-0 and then losing like they do now... AI to the Clippers, anyone?
