Can someone update me on my team? Cellar dwellers as I imagined but strangely have strung together 5 wins against decent competition. It's hard to read that on paper and understand it.
Haven't really been paying attention to your Heat, but they have now strung together 8 in a row, 2 recently against Brooklyn and have comfortably separated themselves from the Nets in the race for no. 1, for which I thank them.

Suns and Lakers need to get hot now.

Just now got wind of what this was about.

In fairness, he has a valid point. Screw Charles Barkley.

What LeBron said àbout Charles wasn't wrong.

What Charles said about LeBron wasn't wrong, either.

I mean, LeBron hardly deflected it. The simple use of the term "my legacy" was evidence enough that Charles was right.

“Clearly he did some homework on some screwups I’ve had in my life. I appreciate him — clearly he ‘Googled’ me and found out some things. But I’m not going to get upset that somebody said something bad about me. I’m not 12 years old. My initial criticism of him was fair, and I’m good with that.”

Asked why he thinks James responded in that way.

“When I think that you don’t like the message, you kill the messenger. Some of the things he said about me are correct, that still does not make my message incorrect. I thought he was really whiny and complaining the last couple weeks. It’s the middle of the season and he just bashed his teammates — I think that wasn’t right.

“I appreciate Tristan Thompson actually having the stones to say something. But he’s the only one. And anybody in that circle — they’re just so intimidated. But I’m not intimidated at all.”

Then, Barkley decided to justify his on-air behavior:

“My basketball opinion is strictly about basketball. I have really strict rules: I never talk about a guy’s personal life, and I never say a guy should be fired. All my stuff is going to strictly be about basketball.”

“I’ve only met LeBron casually. He’s always been great to me and I’ve been cordial to me. But the notion that we have to be friends … we’re never going to be friends. That’s not a negative thing. I’m not friends with any of these young guys. My job is to do my job. But I understand that this is a different generation where anytime you say something about young guys they take it personally. They don’t worry about whether the criticism is fair at all — they take it personally.”

“I’ve said the guy is one of the ten greatest players ever. I’ve said the guy is the best player in the world. I’ve said he’s a wonderful guy. I’m not sure how that constitutes hating when he’s coming out and bashing his teammates every day. I thought it was inappropriate for him to say everyday how bad his team is, and I think it’s a fair criticism.”

Game, set, match Barkley.

I've always liked Barkley.
One of my best friends lives in Houston, is a doctor and became good friends with the Rockets' trainer when he moved there. That was late 90's when Barkley was on the Rockets and as a result my buddy has played golf with Barkley and had him over to the house, he's apparently quite engaging in person as one might expect.

I know Whiteside is for real, but is Waiters for real for real?

"I’d rather go 0 for 30 than 0 for 9 because you go 0 for 9 that means you stopped shooting.That means you lost confidence."

That's what Waiters said a few days ago.

He's an all or nothing kinda guy. When he's on you'll love him when he's off you'll want to kill him. He's JR Smith with a brighter internal green light.

Yeah I read that and I was like - what? I'd rather you go 0-9. It means you didn't shoot 21 other unnecessary shots.

I think he looks different what with this being "anyone's team" right now. I'm questioning whether or not he's maturing into a very valuable starter, or if he's bound to cool down.

Could be... Needs to do it for a bit longer. I dunno if he'll ever be a guy who can play with other great players because of his shit selection, but it's not a crazy though to see him maturing the way Isiaih Thomas did.

I know this is a totally random drive-by but someone posted a video on fb of the Menace in The Palace debacle....and I just couldn't help but think that every single last fan that got involved that night deserved to get the shit kicked out of them. And a few kicks to the nuts too, for good measure.

Yeaaaaaaa the fans shouldn't have gotten involved, but when you charge into the stands after a fan... kinda sets a firecracker that is hard to put out.
