Can someone PLEASE pass the Mayo?!

40 points, on 15-26 shooting...6-9 from deep..8 rebs...3 assists...2 stls, in 42 min.

Him and Conley (my backcourt) could be one of the best of this draft. ;D

Boozer's been solid, right at 14 and 10...almost 17 PER.

KG's been KG...Zaza Pachulia and Mareese Speights have played well - especially Zaza. He's averaging well over 7 rebs - off the bench.

My rooks have played well - Andrew Nicholson and Meyers Leonard have both contributed and shown flashes of being productive NBA players one day. Leonard is averaging 1 block off the bench alone.

Gary Neal and Nate Robinson are playing well.

My wings (Trevor Ariza, Chris Singleton and Kyle Korver) have been a bit sporadic. Bu they haven't been TOO bad overall. Trevor and Kyle are both out, which means that either Neal or Singleton would have to play the 3.

I have channeled my Inner Ainge ;D. I have a tough defensive squad, with enough scoring coming from my starters (O.J., Booz, Conley, KG), tough perimeter and interior D, youth and a good bench.

"Elite" is probably stretching it for George, but he's played well.

Lillard is in an elite class for a rookie.

I think his defense is top 5 at his position as is his rebounding.

Not even thinking.  Landry would be the backup PF.

Well, as we've seen twice now in his career, Kobe doesn't always mesh well with other superstars.  If you can't win with Shaq/Malone/Payton or Howard/Gasol/Nash, it suggests that you've got some flaws in your game.

Hey IP, how's that whole bigs rotation of yours coming along? We know that Chris Bosh is arguably the best center in the NBA right now, but how about the other rag-tag bunch of bigs you drafted? Hows that whole thing working out?

Well, I'm glad you asked that, thought in my head. To start the season, pretty much the only guys playing to where I thought they would/should be playing were Chris Bosh, Thad Young, and Brendan Haywood. But now, my entire bigs rotation has come alive! Tiago Splitter has assumed the starting duties for the San Antonio Spurs full-time with G-Pop's endorsement, and Nikola Vucevic is AVERAGING A DOUBLE-DOUBLE (tied for 6th in the league for total double-doubles with Al Jefferson and Al Horford).

So you know, nobigdeal.

Sure sure, though I have the coach the lakers should have hired this year.  And at that point in his career wasnt Malone a shell of himself?

No. Payton was though. Karl Malone was still an All-Star caliber player in LA.

Karl Malone was the guy who made everything work. The guy who played hard nosed interior defense and brought all the stars together with his tremendous passing inside the Triangle. He did a great job on the boards. Nailed jump-shots. Spread the floor for Shaq's post game and Kobe's driving game. He made everyone around him better. A nightly 15/10 threat.

The Lakers missed his strong play in a major way in the Finals when he got injured and wasn't able to play at the same high level he had been playing at throughout the season.

The Lakers were downright dominant with Karl Malone in the lineup (33 wins, 9 losses) but were fairly mediocre without him (23 wins, 17 losses). Karl Malone was the glue that kept LA together that year.

Gotcha, I knew that one of them was, I guess I thought it was malone because of all the games that he missed but then I checked his averages and stats.

I always knew that the Boxers, being so young would be a work in progress and better at the end of the year than the beginning. So let's take a look at their January numbers:

Jeremy Lin: 12 ppg, 5.7 apg, 4.4 rpg. 3.0 spg, 38/39/67 %s
Harrison Barnes: 13 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.0 spg 55/67/72 %s
Michael Kidd Gilchrist: 9.9 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 1.9 apg, 40/0/85 5s
Kenneth Faried: 12.6 ppg, 10.4 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.0 spg, 57/NA/78 %s
Serge Ibaka: 14.3 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 2.0 bpg, 57/40/62 %s


John Henson: 11.3 ppg, 9.1 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.3 bpg, 55/0/59 %s
Courtney Lee: 8.1 ppg, 1.1 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.3 spg, 59/45/75 %s
Ekpe Udoh: 3.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 0.7 apg, 1.1 bpg, 37/NA/91 %s
Rodrique Beaubois: 3.6 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 2.1 apg, 33/30/67 %s

Donatas Montiejunas: getting no playing time...doing nothing
Jonas Valanciunas: injured...doing nothing
Austin Rivers: getting playing time...doing worse than nothing
Chris Anderson: out of league...still helping team more than Austin Rivers

Still a bad team but probably surprisingly tough on defense and the boards with a lot of energy. Possibly as high as 4-5 future All Stars. I'm happy.
