i've always been a kobe hater, but i've found myself softening on my dislike for him of late... i brought this up with a friend of mine who also dislikes him and he said the same thing... we came to this conclusion... with all the hype over these young guys coming into the league... lebron, wade, carmello, etc... i keep finding myself saying stuff like "lebron can't hold kobe's jock." so by the dislike for the hype around lebron and wade, i've found myself liking kobe more. which is ironic, because i used to feel the same way about kobe as i do lebron and wade.

It very well might be simply b/c I'm a Bulls fan. If I'm honest with myself, maybe I just don't want another "Jordanlike" player to be in the league. There certainly are similarities. Kobe is not MJ, but he sure wishes he was.

So, I still hate him. I don't like LeBron, Melo, and Wade used to be ok. But even he now bugs me. Give me Brandon Roy over all those suckers.

You know who I love? Michael Finley. I am slowly realizing that the players I grew up admiring, are the players who are slowly, but surely winding down their careers.

I need to sleep now b/c of my "old age."

I found that humerous right up until the moment I realized that the Fresh Prince of Clutch Threes is younger than me.

Yeah, I agree. But it is interesting to see two guys who were around the same level in the league 2-3 years ago now playing different styles of basketball.

McGrady's been shooting the ball less and deferring to his teammates more, at least in comparison to his days in Orlando when he did everything.

I say Kobe doesn't pass the ball much then he drops a game with 13 assists, so I don't know what to say about him anymore.

I wonder what the worst record to ever make the playoffs currently is...

Because the 8th seed in the East might break it.

I think I heard somewhere that we will be getting Nocioni back soon! If he is healthy and ready to go, this could be a big help! Though, I hope it doesn't cut into Tyrus' playing time too much. In Skiles I trust. Kind of...

i'd be very surprised if a team with a worse record than whoever ends up being the 8 seed in the east has ever made the playoffs.

the nba east... it's faaaaaaaantastic.

I've always said it's because the competition in the east is far superior than the west. THAT is why the records are so much lower. Tougher competition.

Regarding Nocioni's return for the Bulls and the possibility of Tyrus's minutes getting cut down...it's very simple, PJ needs to sit so Tyrus can keep his minutes when Noc gets back. It will be a traveshamockery if Skiles goes back to giving Tyrus six minutes a game so Old Man Brown can play for fifteen minutes and do nothing.

But back to the game, this is one example of why I don't think the Suns can make it to the Finals. They can be taken out of their game. But hey, if they do get to run, watch out...

The West will be fun to watch in the playoffs.
I was actually watching the game at the corner of my eye the whole time and I just saw him get taken off the court...

I was like
