If nobody wants that max contract from the Lakers, I'll take it.

The Indy media? So, 2 guys in a barn?

Now that what's his name is gone Heat tix are so much less expensive.

Porzingis is going to be a monster star. I'm talking like 25 PPG, 13 RPG with some blocks thrown in there too. What this kid can do is almost without limit. He can shoot, he has some post moves, he is already a very good rebounder, he is an excellent help defender already. His body control for someone his size is remarkable.

Yeah, he's already the kind of player you tune into a game to watch, regardless of what team you support. With his brand of WTF size and skill, you know the high priests of the NBA are praying nightly this guy's continued physical/mental health and development.

It is kinda scary to watch. He's already a better rebounder and defender than I'd hoped he'd be at his peak. The best part is that he likes to mix it up. You can tell he enjoys being in scrums for rebounds. He's got a little nasty in him. Coming into the year I hoped he would come off the bench, play 20 minutes a night and average 8 and 5. Really, thats all I wanted was for him to get his feet wet. He's already a very good player though.

 

Down the road his versatility is going to be huge too. He can play the 5 when you want to go small. Obviously he can play the 4, thats his normal position. He could even play the 3 in certain situations, although certain 3's would run him off the court. I was actually scared of him not being able to guard certain 4's and then not being physical enough to play the 5 and getting run off the court. But he can easily play the 5, so that's not really a concern.

Case in point: I'm making a special point to catch the Blazers vs. Porzing -- er, uh, Knicks game tonight. Probably the only time in recent memory I've been interested in a game where both teams are boasting a .417 record.

Hopefully he will play well. The more I watch him the more I'm convinced that in today's NBA he is a center. Lopez is signed for a few years but when the cap goes up over the next couple summers his contract should become tradeable.

The East is a muddled mess right now. On 3.5 games separate the 1 and 10 seeds. After the Heat beat the Cavaliers they were tops in the conference. 3 straight losses and now we're 7th. It will be interesting to see when/if the top teams hit their stride how the conference shapes up.

I like Golden State and I like Portland, but I figured it was going to be such a route, I didn't bother watching.

 

Then Lillard goes and utterly destroys the Warriors with an all-career game. The highlights are great but damn I wish I woulda seen it.

My Spurs have had lots of injuries. The whole teams doing pretty great. I'm not sure about Coach Pop's newest hair stylings. That is the worse I can say about my team.

 

It could be worse. My brother's a Sun's fan much like Lohr and they've been sad this year.

Way to go Kawhi Leonard! SI cover.

 

The Spurs have a tough 5 game schedule ahead. I got to hear a game coming back from Tucson. It was the MN game and I believe Becky Hammond coached that one as the big three and Pop sat that one out.

 

As another interesting aside I listened to some sports radio station dude who complained endlessly about how the Cavs have no joy, like they don't even want to play.

Jackson certainly did it with better talent. I'm thinking that Pop might be the better coach though.

 

How about Dirk "Diggler" Nowitzki scoring back to back 3 pointers to seal the game in overtime against the Trail Blazers this evening?! He finished the game with 40 points and is 1 of only 4 players, 37 or older, to score as many points in a game.

I went to the Heat and requested 1 year $8 million. They said you're 41, you haven't played organized basketball since middle school, and you tire quickly playing full court. They offered 1 year free NBA Ticket and jumped on it! Actually Hassan Whiteside is paying for it. He got the money.
