Posted by ShawndmeSlanted, Tue Jan-08-13 02:38 PM
Small slate of games with an "intriguing" LA vs HOU matchup on NBATV

PS if you need a podcast to listen to checkout the BS report from 1/4. Steph Curry and DLee were in studio with Simmons. It was a great listen. The guys were surprisingly candid and were with Simmons for an hour.

BK @ PHilly another fun atlantic battle. SHould be interesting on the heels of teh sexual assault case. At the very least it means someone on the Nets was partying til 4am


Mia @ Indy Indy been playing better lately. Miami still not completely firing. Tonight I would bet 2 gazillion dollars on the Miami ML hoping to recoup some of my losses from that OKC debacle last night.


PHX @ MIL- First game since Skiles fired. Interested to see how the Mil rotation changes.


ATL@MINN- IF Atl was in the west they'd be Minn. If Minn was in the east they'd be ATL.

Lakers@Hou- Classic betters trap game. Team with stars covers the spread I expect a close game even though we need to blow the Lakers out so we can rest for NO tomorrow. Lakers will be able to run with us for awhile with their small team, but if we keep running and limit mistakes, we should be able to run past them.

Not a bad fit if he's got any left in the tank. But didn't dude have a cocaine problem? If so, he's going to the WRONG city...that's like Josh Hamilton signing with the Brewers

Sources: Heat eye 'Birdman' Chris Andersen for potential frontcourt help
Mon, Jan 7, 2013 2:39 PM EST

Email

In its exploration to sign a big man, the Miami Heat will work out ex-Denver Nuggets center Chris Andersen, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Andersen, famously known as "The Birdman," arrived in Miami on Monday for a physical and workouts over the next two days with the defending NBA champions, sources said.

Heat president Pat Riley has been scouring the landscape to bolster a foundering frontcourt bench and appears to be intrigued with the possibility of discovering how much Andersen, 34, has left in his game.

The Heat released center Josh Harrellson on Monday and now have two open roster spots.



At his best, Andersen, who is 6-foot-10, was one of the NBA's most active and relentless bench contributors. His array of tattoos covering him head to toe helped make him one of the league's most popular characters.

Andersen played 32 games for the Nuggets last season, and ultimately was waived in July using the NBA's amnesty clause. He's played parts of 10 seasons with Denver, New Orleans/Oklahoma City.

After a two-year ban for violating the NBA's drug policies between 2006 and 2008, Andersen had a terrific second act in the NBA, most notably as a key reserve on the Carmelo Anthony-led Nuggets.

2106655, Knicks interested in Kenyon
Posted by ShawndmeSlanted, Tue Jan-08-13 08:04 PM
Sources tell Yahoo! Sports that the Knicks are showing interest in free agent PF Kenyon Martin.
Rasheed Wallace's foot injury continues to linger, so the Knicks are looking for another washed up defensive specialist. Martin has been on the street all season even though he's let it be known he'll play for the veteran minimum.
2106667, can he actrite tho?

But Mike D ain't gonna use him to his strengths. Get some young athletics (c) Magic and run, run, run.
2106695, We are slow as shit and have 3 great pieces to surround w youth
Posted by LA2Philly, Tue Jan-08-13 09:12 PM
Pau is the odd man out, it's been obvious since pretty much day 1 w Mike D. Mitch made Nash a promise that he'd have a chance to play w Pau and the Nash injury delayed that...otherwise, Pau is prob gone already.

Is what it is...we need a wing and a stretch 4. Let's go get it.
2106698, The problem is that Nash isn't allowed to be Nash.
Posted by haj20, Tue Jan-08-13 09:14 PM
Up until this game he hasn't looked like himself. He needs to be given the reigns so he can run the offense.
2106707, That's not the problem though man...we've been fine offensively
Posted by LA2Philly, Tue Jan-08-13 09:29 PM
We are way too slow in transition D w two 7 footers and then Pau has his feet stuck in concrete on defensive rotations as well. Replace this dude with two energetic cats and it changes the entire composition of the team.
2106806, It so easy to see...

LOL, Lakers went from up 5 to down 11 so quick towards the end of that third it was crazy.
2106756, Rox were getting any shot they wanted so not much of a surprise
Posted by LA2Philly, Tue Jan-08-13 10:19 PM
Once they eventually started hitting and we had a lull, it was gonna be a 10 to 15 point swing.
2106754, i've been calling this BS all season long

dude pretty much lives at the line just based on the questionable calls.
2106773, The hate is strong
Posted by ShawndmeSlanted, Tue Jan-08-13 10:28 PM
Does he get calls? Sure. Sometimes he doesn't. We have the benefit of replay. Same thing I said about wade before he became more of a jump shooter. You go to the hole that aggressively, that often, you'll get the benefit of the doubt and get calls. Too bad most guys find that jump shot and forget how to do it. Hope James never really gets a wet jump shot.

Btw you of all people know the rules of the game --you got ginobili.
2106801, Manu has paid w/ his body to earn his call in the a paint
Posted by FILF, Tue Jan-08-13 10:54 PM
>Btw you of all people know the rules of the game --you got
>ginobili.

James on the other hand:
-swings his arms through people while he driving=Foul
-Run over folks: Foul
-Try to avoid contacts: Foul

If he actually drove and got hammered like AI, nobody would complain. Manu has a bad rep because he has a tendency to draw offensive fouls on the other end.
2106930, Sorry but you can't get away with that
Posted by Szabo, Wed Jan-09-13 05:18 AM

2106772, Ron also, admittedly, doesn't watch game tape or play tendencies
Posted by LA2Philly, Tue Jan-08-13 10:28 PM
He just 'goes out there and plays defense'.
2106775, rather if can shoot 33% from 3 over the course of a season
Posted by themaddfapper, Tue Jan-08-13 10:29 PM
the expansion of his game will be ridiculous
2106834, yea those changes usually come over seasons and not in season
Posted by ShawndmeSlanted, Tue Jan-08-13 11:27 PM
yea when he makes a jumpshot or two his confidence goes up and he attacks the rim with abandon. His turnovers have gone up the past 2 weeks. He's taking too many risks with the ball. Sometimes its guys dropping passes, but as pg he has to know which guys he can give the ball to in which situations--so thats still on him to some extent.

He's hands down the best outlet passing pg in the league but easily the worst post entry passing pg in the league. Dude puts so much air on his post entry passes that a defender ALWAYS at least gets a hand on it. Shit is atrocious.

Wanna talk about his on the ball defense though.He plays solid/good d every night and challenges shots. When he gets beat he works hard to recover. Even that night Kyrie went off, I thought he did a good job of making Kyrie work to get the shots off.
2106853, first 8 yrs of Kidds career between 27% & 37%
Posted by themaddfapper, Tue Jan-08-13 11:46 PM
last 8 between 34% and 46%

no need to wait till he's slowing down, like kidd said he did. Do it while you can still get past people.

He needs a teardrop or a stop and pop. Something 5-8 feet out. Because his reluctance to take that shot has him make some bad jump passes.

he played good d on ron artest, tied up nash in the paint. he's good at snatching the ball from bigs bringing the ball down below their waists.

im still stunned there was a fire morey contingent. i had zeke n scott layden. *shudders*
2106748, Once our offensive efficiency dropped, it was game over
Posted by LA2Philly, Tue Jan-08-13 10:14 PM
We can't defend them on the perimeter and without Dwight or J Hill, no one is gonna change shots at the rim. We had to outscore them.
2106749, Is Odie Meeks the worst regular rotation player in the league?
Posted by MothershipConnection, Tue Jan-08-13 10:15 PM
I mean he's played decent today, but he gets a lot to tick to shoot a lot of open Js at a crappy percentage.
2106758, No. He's had a shooting lull lately but was around 40% before that
Posted by LA2Philly, Tue Jan-08-13 10:20 PM
2106777, But he's usually wide open
Posted by MothershipConnection, Tue Jan-08-13 10:30 PM
On second thought you're probably right, there's probably on someone on the Bobcats or Wizards much worse, I'm just surprised Kupchak can't find someone who can hit those shots closer to 40%, even at the minimum.
2106770, he's terrible, Laker fans out here seem to like him though
Posted by Bombastic, Tue Jan-08-13 10:27 PM
perhaps because of their bench players his shot at least looks like it might go in.
2106811, he's mad streaky

2106979, Avery being gone from the Nets showing

2 things Avery needs to fix if he ever wants to be a successful NBA coach again are getting along with PG's by giving them more freedom and actually being able to coach anyone under 28 years old and instilling confidence in young players... 2 things he has failed miserably at it...

Marshon Brooks and Teletovic are suddenly key factors on the team and Deron looks like he is playing now instead of thinking too much...

Avery seems like a good dude but clearly wrong guy for this team... PJ is doing a great job so far
2107012, teletovic is the main reason they dont have gerald green

and I couldn't understand for the life of me why he wasn't playing him.

there's an article around the internets about jason kidd/avery, where a source says kidd told them "he's crazy" and relates the same tenacity that made avery a great player relative to his limitations, made him very difficult to be coached by.

Thank God Marshon's free. That must have been personal, cause as hard as it was for that team to score, keeping him on the bench made no sense.
2107232, thats the thing, if it was 1 accusation that's one thing
Posted by rjc27, Wed Jan-09-13 01:37 PM
but J-Kidd a lock hall of famer said it... Devin Harris said it which is why he was swapped for Kidd in the first place, now Deron... it's a pattern... Devin was the combo of young and pg too, so those two hated eachother...
