D-Whistle pusses himself into an injury in the first preseason game? Man, I'm kicking myself for not taking the under when I saw it set at 4.5 preseason games.

Fall down infinity times, get up because the injury was exaggerated due to your need to be labeled a "warrior" infinity + 1.

Not that the injury wasnt soft... but I'm sure it wasnt his decision to come out of the game.

it's preseason game 1. Why risk your superstar getting injured? They probably just told him to go ahead and take the game off.

so your argument that they have depth consists of a center with no knees left and j-lo's brother-in-law? really making a solid point there.

This is exactly the concern that I have about the Heat. I would think that a coach with an impressive resume, one who demands respect based on credentials, would be necessary to keep this team focused. As more detail comes out about Cleveland's recent playoff debacle, it is becoming increasingly clear that LeBron turned on Mike Brown in a drastic and blatant manner at some point during the Boston series. I can see him doing the same to Spoelstra if things do not go as planned. Spoelstra may well be a stronger coach than Mike Brown, but I still think that he has a formidable challenge ahead of him this season.

ESPN

The Los Angeles Lakers will win the NBA title and LeBron James won't win the NBA Most Valuable Player award -- at least if a survey of NBA general managers is accurate.

The annual NBA.com GM Survey, released Wednesday, says the Lakers are the team to beat, according to 63 percent of the 28 general managers who responded.

The Miami Heat, which picked up James and Chris Bosh to join Dwyane Wade during the offseason, was picked to win by 33 percent of the respondents.

The Boston Celtics were the pick of 4 percent.

In the MVP race, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder was the overwhelming pick, getting 67 percent of the votes. Kobe Bryant of the Lakers was second with 26 percent.

James, last year's league MVP, picked up just a single vote, as did Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic.


--The Wizards' John Wall, this year's top overall pick, earned 68 percent of the vote as this year's likely rookie of the year. Last year's top pick, the Clippers' Blake Griffin, will also be a rookie after missing a season to injury, and received 29 percent of the vote.

--For the first time, Deron Williams (50 percent) of the Utah Jazz was voted as the top point guard in the league, overtaking the New Orleans Hornets’ Chris Paul (36 percent).

--The Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki (29 percent) and Lakers’ Pau Gasol (29 percent) finished tied as the best power forward in the league, replacing the San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan, who had been selected as the best at his position for the past eight years.

--The Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard (96 percent) was voted as the top center.

--The Heat’s James (68 percent) was named the best small forward.

--The Lakers’ Bryant (86 percent) was voted the best shooting guard. Bryant is currently the only player to have been selected as the best at his position every year of the survey.

--Thirty-nine percent of GMs believe the Heat will be the most improved team in 2010-11 while 14 percent of general managers feel the New York Knicks and Washington Wizards would be the most improved teams.

--For the ninth consecutive season, Bryant (79 percent) was also selected by GMs as the player they most want taking the shot with the game on the line.

--Nowitzki (57 percent) was voted the top international player.

--Durant (56 percent) was voted as the top player GMs would sign to start an NBA franchise.

--The Boston Celtics (100 percent) were unanimously picked to win the Atlantic Division, Chicago Bulls (82 percent) in the Central Division and the Miami Heat (74 percent) in the Southeast Division. In the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Lakers (96 percent) were predicted to win the Pacific Division, the Dallas Mavericks (71 percent) in the Southwest Division, and the Oklahoma City Thunder (63 percent) in the Northwest Division.

--The Lakers’ Phil Jackson was voted the best head coach (39 percent).

--The Magic’s Dwight Howard was voted best defensive player (78 percent).

--The Bulls’ Derrick Rose was voted fastest with the ball (21 percent).

--The Suns’ Steve Nash won the vote as best passer (75 percent).

--The Clippers' Griffin tied the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook as the most likely to have a breakout season (15 percent).

--The Oklahoma City Thunder were called the most fun team to watch (52 percent).

--The Celtics’ Ray Allen was voted the best pure shooter (54 percent).

--The Utah Jazz were voted the team with the best home court advantage (46 percent)

Even with the Nazi party on their side, the Cavs don't sniff the playoffs.

Good one. Ignore absolutely everything I write, and make a funny [not] statement.

You've got no response to it. You know what you're called? A hater.
