Jamal Crawford put on a show out there tonight. Lob city dominated that game, definitely the best looking team out here right now. Kemba Walker hit a game winner tonight over my wolves that reminded me of that shot he hit in the big east tourney a couple years ago. Westbrook shooting about 30% tonight, 6/19 isn't going to cut it.

Lol, that's right.  Judging by early results the Knicks, not the Clippers, are the team to beat.

On another note, the more I think about it, the more I'm liking the Dantoni hire for my Lakers.  I really didn't want to see Nash morph into Fisher before my very eyes in the triangle offense (that transformation started in Brown's Princeton offense, another slowdownandmakecutsbasedonyourreads offense).  I'm actually excited for geriatric showtime lol....

Initially, Dantoni was my last choice of the rumored choices, but Kobe and Nash love the guy, and they're the team leaders.  In the Association that's half the battle.

Knicks/Grizzlies on the NBA network right now. Great early season game. Lot of people very high on Memphis early in the year, though like we talked about earlier it's probably going to be tough for them to be a true threat unless Rudy Gay makes a leap this year. But stranger things have happened. They really don't have any weaknesses other then they need either Gasol, Gay or Z-Bo to be the man in big games, and you never know if one of them will step up

Bernie Bickerstaff is now 3-1, with a lone heartbreak loss to San Antone.

And Metta is quietly reverting back to Ron.  He's still dumb as a door knob, but he looks to be in fantastic shape.

I may have to re-do my point guard list if Damian Lillard keeps playing like this. When you watch a game like yesterday it's tough to believe they are 4-5, until you realize they have zero bench, but they'll get better over time and if they keep that nucleus together should be one of the better teams in the west. If guys like Claver and Meyers Leonard can do anything this season they are at the very least a really tough out every night. I think the majority of the teams in the league would take a trio of Lillard/Aldridge/Batum and feel mighty good about it. Batum is a super 2 way player, he's like an Andre Iguodala who can score

I said earlier i really didn't like Houston's team. It was nice to get Harden and he's playing well. But having so much money tied up in Omar Asik and Jeremy Lin is just nuts. How are they going to move those guys. Those contracts are disasters already and it's 9 games into them. I still can't believe Harden would rather make more money to go 45-37 then potentially play on a dynasty and still be stinking rich

Things are starting to normalize a bit. The Lakers looking better, Memphis looks great with their better outside shooting and everyone starting the year healthy, San Antonio, OKC really doesn't look like they've missed a beat (i'll admit Westbrook hasn't looked that great early on and they are still 7-3 with Martin and Ibaka scoring well). Those teams look like they will be the class of the west.

In the east someone will just wake up Lebron from his nap come playoff time and they'll go Darryl Dawkins "Fo Fo Fo" on everyone. But it's really cute that the other teams are trying.

Moses Malone, I'm pretty sure, and the Heat are the class of the East.

yeah i don't know why Darryl Dawkins was in my head there as i was writing. Another impressive night from the Clips and Grizzlies, aswell as the Spurs. The Clippers are the most exciting team in the league to watch. They have a bit of everything. They are actually a lot like the Spurs if you think about it too. PG leader, creative scoring SG, spot up shooters, deep.

What do you guys think of the Bucks? Great start to the season. They seem to rely a lot on Jennings and Ellis for scoring and then all their role players chip in for 5-10 a game and rebounding/defense. They have a lot of guys most fans will never have heard of, Tobias Harris, Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh, Dalembert, Ilyasova, Dunleavy, John Henson...The average fan maybe could name 2 guys on this team. They have 11 players averaging 5 points per game or more right now! I think they might surprise some people and potentially even win that division. Indiana is in trouble now with Granger out, who knows what Derrick Rose give to Chicago when he comes back. Elsewhere in the east Philly is struggling and again who knows what Bynum gives them when he comes back. I was never super high on Atlanta with their current roster. Even if they don't win the central they could snag a 5-6 seed i think. They actually look good, they can throw a lot of capable bodies out there up front who are active. They are probably a perfect place for a guy like JJ Redick aswell on the trade front. Interesting team to watch

Lakers just scored 40 points in the first quarter, Mike Brown firing was long overdue. If this is a sign of things to come with Mike D, the rest of the NBA will be playing for second.

QFT.  The Pau trade felt more lopsided at the time, but history may prove Dwight for Bynum as an even better trade for the Lakers.  Considering Dwight's "still out of shape," and he's playing on a team that's still trying to find its way, he's been great.

I know he acted like a little b***h in Orlando, but at least he brings it every night.  As talented as he is,  Bynum didn't.  Plus he's injury prone, and bigs don't generally get healthier with age.

Kobe with 22-11-11, i'll venture a guess they don't lose too many games when he puts up a line like that. BTW Kobe shooting 50% from the floor and 40% from 3. Playing some really efficient ball. That to me is the most significant stat that favors the Lakers right now. He's not firing up dumb shots. They will figure this out pretty soon methinks

Ironically, in Mike D's debut, the Lakers eek out a defensive w.  Kobe is still playing smart, and I'm still very impressed with how good a shape Metta's in.  He's playing defense like he did in his Pacer days.

Dwight was awesome everywhere except the ft line.  Yuck.  He needs to get his % to the low 60s or so.

And he hasn't missed a beat, 34 and 14 and only 2-9 from 3. I'm really excited about this team once we get Rubio back as well as being done with all of these injuries.
