Tweet of the Day: Pau Gasol

Tough loss tonight against the Jazz. We did not take care of the ball and we have to defend better as a team. Next 2 games are on the road.

Pau Gasol
I want to see more out of the Lakers. They didn’t move Pau, Bynum is healthy, Kobe is still playing like Kobe, and they just added a solid point guard in Ramon Sessions. Although I consider them to be the third best team in the West, I believe they could surpass the Spurs at any given time. They may not have the athleticism to run with the Thunder, but when you have Kobe Bryant on your team, you can

Somebody erupted the beast within the Knicks locker room. I don’t know if it was the departure of D’Antoni, or what exactly has clicked. But the Knicks have been fantastic the past three games, destroying the Blazers by 32 then beating the Pacers, who have been a very good team this season, by 14 and 15 points. Woodsanity has now begun, and the roller-coaster season for the Knicks continues. They are now 3-0 under Woodson, and just as ice

Friday’s NBA Post-Game Notes

Ramon Sessions

Deron Williams missed his 4th consecutive game with a strained right calf. According to Elias Sports Bureau, LeBron James leads the Heat in PPG, RPG, and APG. If he does so, it would be the second time in his career he has done so, and only the 5th time it has been done in the past 10 seasons. The Heat are 5-0 this season when leading by 25+ at halftime. Sixers C Spencer Hawes sat out Friday’s game but will play Saturday against

FANTASTIC W in OKC. The guys were terrific. All of them! Big game tmrw in DAL.

Manu Ginobili
The Thunder are obviously still the best team in the West. There is not much debate there in my mind. However, tonight was a massive statement game by the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs played without Manu Ginobili and newly acquired Stephen Jackson, and still beat the Thunder by 9 points in Oklahoma City. Tony Parker continued his amazing year, and Tim Duncan pulled down 19 rebounds. Not to mention, Danny Green had 21 points and 5 steals. The

Tweet of the Day: Dwayne Wade

I think it has been mutually understood that Dwayne Wade is referring to Dwight Howard here. Wade is mocking Howard for apparently showing a false sense of loyalty to his team, when in fact Howard’s decision, especially to Wade, was based on money and a high rate of incentives. Howard was reportedly offered the power to determine the fate of Stan Van Gundy, and the General Manager. Followed by the heavy amount of monetary benefits, Howard signed a waiver

Coward's Step down men knock walls down that men like him post up. I told you'll about that dude but you'll didn't listen. #DANPHONY

I AM PEACE STAR
Harsh words, but relatively justified, Marbury. You may not be the most well-respected player in the league, but you raise a valid point. D’Antoni has been getting ripped to shreds through the media and New York fan base, and there is no doubt he is regretting his choice of the Knicks over the Chicago Bulls back when both teams were pursuing him in 2008. The Knicks followed up D’Antoni’s departure with a 42-point win over the Trail Blazers. Honestly,

Tuesday’s NBA Post-Game Notes

Andrew Bynum

Antawn Jamison scored 20 points for the 8th consecutive game, but failed to record a rebound. Jose Calderon was seen in a walking boot at the end of Toronto’s bench. There is no timetable for his return. The Blazers shot 2 of 15 in the first quarter. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Howard is only the 4th player in the past 25 seasons to record a stat line of 24 points, 25 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. At 32-9, the Thunder went
