Yeah yeah the Thunder are tops in the West....and are DAMN GOOD. I see them as the team to beat in the West ..... Now that thats over with.... How about Miami? Boy, with most of the media attention going to Lin lately, they have been ROLLING through teams and smacking them left and right . LeBron James and Wade alone when they get rolling can almost singlehandedly beat almost any team by themselves. I think getting a non-stats All Star guy like Battier has quietly made a big difference, not to mention the surprising emergence of rook Norris Cole. Speaking of which, finally glad to see Linsanity be able to die down a bit, atleast from a more national perspective and give Lin and the Knicks a chance to regroup again. I think tonight was definitely an eye opener for Lin , facing , by far, his worst of game of his career-probably ever since his Sr year in HS. Hopefully ESPN will stop scrolling Lin news every 30 minutes. I've become a huge fan of his and become somewhat of a Knicks fan, but it got a tad old after 6 games in. But boy, I think the dude has faced enough media duties and responsibilities from NY, much less having to deal with the nat'l media stuff AND int'l stuff. The Bulls are very underrated, and that's probably due to how many games Rose has been missing- yet they were still LinWinning. Thibedeau proves again why he is such a great coach and particularly a great defensive mastermind I hate the Clips now. I somewhat got tired of all the Blake hype last season, but now with CP3, the Clips have officially passed the Spurs as the floppiest team in the NBA (mainly due to CP3's signature flare for the over-acting, and Blake is quickly becoming a very competent student in that regard). S/o to my Rockets for even getting to 20 wins before the AS break, with the roster they have. Google Kyle Lowry, boys and girls. He's breaking out this year, and should've been in the AS game. He has been carrying this team most of they year with no superstars whatsoever, and only one other star beside him in Kevin Martin. Speaking of which, I've officially come to hate Kevin Love. Great player; b3ch ass punk though.
