Forty

NBA 2011-2012

Kobe's heating up had two 40+ point games recently, and people were saying he's past his prime lol. Seeing a Lakers/Heat finals would be awesome, especially since the Lakers would be underdogs which is rare.

He has four consecutive 40+ point games now. 2006 Kobe is back. Which is understandable, really. With no Phil or 'Triangle Offense', he is a completely different player.

I'm so disgusted with the Knicks right now. Losing to Phoenix was bad enough, but losing to a Milwaukee, a team that hadn't won a road game? Disgraceful. Let's be honest - this is a D-league roster outside of the big three. No floor leader, no bench, no ball movement, lousy coaching - they suck.

 

Against Denver, Amar'e only takes ONE shot in the 4th quarter and both OTs - what....the.....f**k????? And Pringles lets Carmelo go iso, iso, iso, and take way too many shots with his teamates wide open. The coach has to tell Carmelo to stop being so selfish, and get others involved, especially Amar'e. Why not do more pick & roll?

 

The Knicks' lack of a true PG is killing Amar'e game. Their hopes are resting on Baron Davis, but who knows what they'll get out of him?

This isn't necessarily about NBA, but the topic description said "all things basketball", so I'm just gonna put this out here.

 

Trying out for my school's basketball team next week. I've never really played organized basketball, but this past week I've been doing intramurals and sh*t to learn the drill.

Wish me luck.

Not much.

 

IMO, they should keep Melo but be very, very careful with him, he is a good player, however I think that the pieces are not there yet, I absolutely dislike the Pringles hire too, give me a coach who knows he Knicks, even Isiah was a better fit (ever so slightly) than Pringles

Did anyone else see the Celtics game last night, it was f*cking nuts. I was sure that we were going to be destroyed, but everyone was contributing and just sticking with it. The ending was something out of a movie.

 

@King Mystery If you really want to make the team play hard defense and box out, that's one way to stand out, helped me make my school's team years ago.

This is why I hated the Carmelo trade. They were a much better team with just Stoudemire being the leader. They had a better cast bilt around him (Danil Gallinari who is playing awesome in Denver this year anyone?). Melo is a selfish player. If they HAD to get him they should of just waited till the off season and hope he was still a free agent then...

Donnie Walsh and Pringles did not want to lose Gallinari, but they were overruled by Brain-Dead Dolan, one of the worst owners in pro sports.

 

Knicks are hot garbage - no point guard, no chemistry between our stars, top-heavy roster, sh*tty coach.

 

I was in favor of the Carmelo trade, so I can't go back now. You need at least two stars to have a chance in this league. But maybe Donnie Walsh was right. Maybe Dolan should have waited and not given up so much. Who knows? Was Carmelo going somewhere else in free agency?

 

I'm just sick of watching ex-Knicks have good games against this team. Even friggin' Jordan Hill played well last night. The Knicks bench is woeful. And Landry Fields is totally lost.

 

Six games under .500 with the Pistons and Bulls coming up. And we're waiting on a dude with a bad back to save the season...(sigh)....

Yeah, we learned boxing out and defense.

Today was the first day of tryouts, and I heard my coach say my name and "good" in the same sentence. I think that's a good sign. sigh.gif

I hate to sound like a homer, but the Celtics lost to the Cavs on a few bullsh*t calls at the end.

 

@King Mystery Hate to be a downer, but when I was in the 5th grade trying out for my travel team the coach said the same thing, but I didn't make it.

Also, out hustle everybody, that's another thing coaches look for.

One last thing, ifyour taller than everyone else I wouldn't worry about making the team.

I didn't see the game, but I don't doubt it, man. NBA refs are historically awful. To me, they're the worst of the absolute worst in American professional sports.

 

@ King Mystery, Listen to GHouse. Being atrocious on offense, I made my high school squad on hustle alone.. haha.

 

If your offense is the strongest part of your game, by all means, show the coach that. If not, just run your ass off, hit the boards with a vengeance and play solid defense. Every team needs players like that.

I'm not really super tall, but not short either. When we line up in order of height, I'm usually near the middle, leaning slightly towards the taller side.

Yeah, I try to hustle a lot too. My coach overuses that word, so it's kind of hard to ignore.

There has been a lot of iffy calls on the Celtics late in games this season I've noticed. It really has been pissing me off. The NBA refs in general are terrible. They gave the Lakers the 2010 championship.

Yeah, I'm a really sh*t runner. I can run fast if I want to, but not for long periods of time and, well... I usually don't want to.

Might have something to do with that.

Linsanity has hit New York! I just hope the ball doesn't stop moving like this when Carmelo comes back.

I loved watching people doubt him when they placed him against Kobe. Jermey Lin can play ball but I think it'll change when you get your two best scorers back on the court. I definitely think his numbers will go down to say the least.

That's no problem. Lin doesn't have to score a lot of points as long as he's getting Amar'e, Carmelo and other teamates easy shots. That's just as devastating. Sh*t, I've seen Nate Archibald, Magic Johnson & Jason Kidd dominate where they've only scored in the single digits, but they controlled the flow of the game. Amar'e will have no problem with Lin - after all, he lived off the pick&roll with Steve Nash for so many years. It's Carmelo that has to adjust. He can't stop the ball. Now, near the end of a close game, it's different. That's when you want your scorer to take over.

 

 

 

@beto - Lin has a solid all-around game. Can't say that about Tebow(yet) until he improves his mechanics and is able to make legit NFL throws.

Nate Archibald, Magic Jognson, Steve Nash and Jason Kidd is a bold list to whip out when discussing this Lin kid. Maybe we can do that when he isn't almost committing 10 turnovers a game. From what I've seen he isn't a facilitator, he makes nice little jump shots and drives the lane when it is open.. you know all the highlights sportscenter shows and such, but they don't point out his turnovers.

 

I'm not doubting him, but I think he might fade a way a little when the two 'Super Stars' come back.

That was a wild game last night. Calderon abused Lin and the Knicks, but things started to turn once Pringles switched put Shumpert on him. Lin hit the game-winning shot, but Shump's 'D' was critical.

 

Carmelo was on with Mike Francesca a few minutes ago and said all the right things.

 

 

UPDATE: Happy-happy-joy-joy, Mike D'Antoni is OUTTA here! Never wanted him here in the first lace and never liked his style. He's overrated, stubborn and a gimmick coach like Don Nelson. Great coaches adjust their system to fit the talent(like Pat Riley). Not so with Pringles.

 

Knicks have won three straight, two against a solid Pacer team. It's so nice to have a coach who actually holds players accountable for screwing up on defense.

Bulls got smoked yesterday. You better hope Rose is healthy for the playoffs.

 

Looks like Jeremy Lin & Amar'e Stoudimire are done for the season. Our PG hopes rest on Davis, Bibby and Douglas...yikes.

 

Carmelo has to put the team on his back.

Wow Hydraulic, I didn't know you were a Bulls fan. You have good taste. smile.gif

 

And we only lost to the Thunder because we short of two players. Two critical players. If Rose and Hamilton were there we would have beat the Thunder by at least 10 points.

 

Looking at the Heat's performance on Sunday, all I have to say is that they cannot win an NBA championship with poor defense and not utilizing their whole team. That's why I think the Bulls can win the ECFs this year because they have great chemistry. Bulls would've won in Game 5 if Rose passed the ball to Korver during the end of the 4th quarter.

 

Anyways, Asik, Gibson, AND Bradley all making Wade look like their bitch.

I don't see any team in the east being a threat to Chicago & Miami. Both WILL be in the conference finals.
