what ever the reason, with only one eye he scored 19 points tonight on 7-10 shooting and 3-4 from 3 point land.

heck, maybe someone should hit him in the other eye as well.  ;D

At one time we had one of most thunderous dunkers in the game with Kendrick Brown and Gerald Green could surely fire up a crowd with his acrobatic wonders.  But Brandon, he just keeps doing it every single game....dunk after dunk after dunk. 

I'm just wondering does anyone recall any Celtic player dunking this often in a season?  I know Bill Walton loved to dunk. And, he did it quite often.  However, he didn't get the minutes Bass gets.  So, it wouldn't be him.  Who else compares with Brandon on dunks per game?  Has there ever been a Celtics player with more dunks in a season?

if this is how he plays w a black eye then...
its someone's job to keep smacking that thing every time it heals - or yeah maybe he just wear an eye patch like on the front page, it would be super cool plus he seems to somehow see the basket better :)

Bucks are self destructing .  Definitely reachable

Celtics , Heat and Nets might all make it in

Not a chance.  Bucks have games against the Knicks, Magic, and 76ers left in their final 8 games.  They're up by 2 over 3 teams.  Just not enough time to fall that far past so many teams.

read your post again. You sound like the Bucks are going 8-0 or even 6-2

They are stuggling and 2 games behind with 8 games left is not alot of seperation

It's a ton of separation.  Bucks can go 2-5 and would need the Celtics to go 5-2 over that same stretch to fall into a tie.  Not happening, much less the Nets and Heat also going 5-3 over that same stretch.  Over 20 games, it's a lot of time.  With 7-8 games left, 2 games is a mountain.  If the Bucks weren't playing the three worst teams in the East over that period, maybe there's be a chance, albeit a small one.  As it stands, the Bucks are in the lead and have the easiest schedule remaining.  But keep believing what you want.  Don't let probability and reason get in the way.

Around the NBA / Re: What is Best for the Nets Picks
« Last post by hwangjini_1 on Today at 11:04:27 PM »

Of the 8 teams you listed, the Bucks and Heat are the two teams that I could most easily see the Nets surpassing.  The Bucks have been terrible since trading Knight away and acquiring MCW.  For the Heat, three players (Wade, Deng and Dragic) have player options.  I think there is a good chance they lose Dragic or Deng, possibly both.  There are also the health concerns for Bosh and Wade.

I agree that those are the weak links, but still, the Bucks were doing even better until Jabari went down.  If he's healthy all year, I don't see the Nets passing them.

Also, the Heat could fall apart I suppose, but if you were to bet on either team at even odds to have a better record next year, would you really take the Nets?  Bosh could be out forever with his blood clots, but I just think Riley will figure something out.

On top of that, we could easily be better than the Nets next year.  The Hornets could easily be better than the Nets next year.  Etc.

your initial points are exactly how I see the situation.  I don't see any other team in the East NOT making improvements next year other than the Nets.  Every other team, barring some surprises in player options, figure to improve either by (A) getting a top pick in the draft this year -- Nets have to give theirs to Atlanta so this doesn't apply to them AND/OR (B) getting injured players back healthy next year.  Nets don't really figure to get much more court time from their top players next year. 

I seriously see the Nets in the bottom 5 in the East next year if not bottom 5 in the league.
Earlier in the season, I believe Lopez was injured and then came of the bench for a while and Young is a recent acquisition.  If both of them stay, the Nets might get more out of them next year.  The Nets may be able to trade Johnson with only one year left on his contract.  Right now, I'm expecting next year's Nets pick to be late lottery.  Thankfully Billy King is still their GM.
anything is possible, but i doubt whether that trade is probable. yes, there is one year left on johnson's contract, but what a year it is! he will be paid just under $25,000,000 next season. that has to be one of the most untradable contracts in the league. what else would the nets have to staple to johnson to move him? heck, what else do they have that anyone would want to take that salary?

i predict the nets just wait for him to go away in 2016-17, along with lopez. i dont know about after 2015-16, but given contracts, aging stars, injuries, and ownership of the nets, i see next year as abysmal for them.

next, i am doubtful the nets will spend like drunken sailors even after next year. the owner wants to sell this team, and low payroll tends to make things attractive to buyers. he may surprise me and spend once more like he just hit a liberty port, but i wont believe it until i see it.

thank goodnes for that!  ;D

Noel considers Boston his home offer him a one year deal once he becomes a free agent that way we get his Bird rights.   I think he gives us a discount.
Bird Rights only apply if a player has spent three consecutive years with a team. It then allows them to go over the soft cap to sign them (which isn't allowed for FA signings). Bird Rights are only transferred in trades (which is why it was so important to NY to trade for Melo or LA to trade for Dwight, etc.)

Next time Kelly, just go to the kitchen and do it like she asked you to.

Bird rights don't work that way.

Even Turner is simply silly. Lance Stephenson seems like a maniac sometimes. Danny made a solid decision.
