Refs have been announced for tonight's game:

NBA.com: NEWS

Kill me now. At least Tim Duncan isn't a Celtic.

It kind of makes sense to trade down, especially if Walsh really likes Alexander. And Michael Redd can play.

i believe that the #1 crew, dislike for joey crawford aside. eddie rush and bennett salvatore are both very good officials... as is crawford, really. crawford's problem is that he personalizes things.

he's no walt rooney

Crawford just bugs me because he's kind of the basketball version of the hollywood umpires who think fans are there to see them call games and toss people. Rush is OK. I think this crew actually did game 3, and I don't recall any specific beef I had with them. I'm just setting up a pre-bitch so I can say "what did I tell ya" if KG has 5 fouls halfway through the 3rd

doooo it.
I personally think that's a terrible trade for the Knicks.

First off, Mayo will not drop to #6.

Second off, even if Mayo did drop to #6, you're in favor of trading a 20/10 guy and Mayo for Redd, who can't guard a chair, and a worse pick?

It doesn't even address the Knicks' salary concerns regarding getting under the cap for 2010, because Redd's contract is the same length as Randolph's.

I don't understand this trade.

yes, i'm in favor of trading an over-rated clubhouse cancer in zach randolph, who's style of play doesn't fit the system of the coach mind you, for a pure shooter and a pick where i can draft the guy that i want to take at #8 anyway.

i could frankly care less about who the bucks take at the 6, as long as it's not alexander, who isn't expected to go any higher than 8th or 9th.


secondly, this is just a rumor... there's also rumors of randolph going to the pistons or the 76ers... and of course the redd to the cavs rumors will probably pop up again in short order.


michael redd is a 22+ ppg scorer. in a system like d'antoni's that could bump up to 25+ ppg. trade a piece of shit like randolph for him? yea, you're right. makes no sense.

But he's a 20/10 guy, stop being so obtuse. It's not like you've seen him play for a year or anything.

I'd make that trade in a second, too. Randolph in Skiles' system would be hilarious to watch.

My husband usually watches the game in a different room. Or listens to portions on the radio. It can be quite difficult to watch sometimes. Especially the last 2 games....if you are a Lakers fan that is. I hope they can force a game 7. I don't know if they have what it takes to do it :Pray: Or if the Celtics come out at home and suck I have to hope!!!

lets keep hoping (I am too) they haven't lost a game at home in 12 games during the playoffs. I think it's 12-1 and for the season 47-7.

Only one quarter gone by, but, man, I just do not see LA pulling this off.

when kobe looks to shoot a lot everyone on LA just stands still and watches... this is why when kobe gets D'd up well that LA's offense goes stagnant.

the lakers are hanging on by a string right now... this is a very key moment in the game. if they don't stem the tide here they could very well end up getting blown out of the building.

I feel the same way....and you are very right about their offense. Sometimes, Odom/Gasol look like they've been playing together for years, but when Kobe is assertive, they shrink. Odd team, but, they got this far.....
