@  redfaithful : (21 September 2014 - 11:40 AM) So many overpaid players in Minnesota... Including a couple ex-Rockets
@  Cooper : (20 September 2014 - 12:48 AM) Bennet? Or they have a couple other young guys.
@  txtdo1411 : (19 September 2014 - 10:29 PM) Did anybody else see that Minny offered Bledsoe a max? I believe they are over the cap, so it would have to be a S&T. I wonder who the Wolves feel they can deal to get Bledsoe.
@  thejohnnygold : (17 September 2014 - 10:46 PM) Nice article about Trevor Ariza. LINK
@  feelingsuper... : (15 September 2014 - 09:01 PM) Okay, I may have been a little harsh down below in my earlier comments but at the very least I agree with Bird, Paul George's comments were thoughtless. Thanks for the link jorgeaam.
@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2014 - 08:24 PM) Here's a link http://www.sbnation....mestic-violence
@  jorgeaam : (15 September 2014 - 08:23 PM) He made some comments about Ray Rice
@  Red94 : (15 September 2014 - 01:50 PM) WOJ just destroyed Coach K this morning.
@  Red94 : (15 September 2014 - 01:50 PM) FSS: what comments of George are you referring to?
@  rocketrick : (14 September 2014 - 12:41 PM) OK
@  thejohnnygold : (13 September 2014 - 03:43 PM) If anyone wants to discuss that please use the "Off-Topic" section of the forum. Thanks.
@  rocketrick : (13 September 2014 - 12:15 PM) Is Danny Ferry a "racist"??
@  feelingsuper... : (12 September 2014 - 02:42 PM) Kind of cool of Fran Fraschilla to acknowledge his false color commentary (on twitter today) during yesterdays game about what D-Mo jokingly said about Harden not eating with the team.
@  feelingsuper... : (11 September 2014 - 05:49 PM) After this morning Paul George doesn't look too good in the court of public opinion. He seems to come off more and more as a douchebag with very low ethical beliefs.
@  redfaithful : (10 September 2014 - 11:29 PM) Watching France dismantle the Spanish star squad, couldn't resist thanking Stern for cancelling the Pau trade - would have been very hard for me to root for him as a Rocket. So much better to have H&H.
@  thejohnnygold : (10 September 2014 - 04:06 PM) Whaaaaa....?
@  rocketrick : (10 September 2014 - 12:35 PM) So I've been watching Mike and Mike this morning for 2+ hours and still no mention whatsoever about USA Basketball and the FIBA Tournament. They did spend about 2 minutes on the Danny Ferry comment re: Luol Deng. Anyway, life goes on for us white folks............
@  Cooper : (08 September 2014 - 03:01 PM) His comments were dumb but not in sterling territory. Just flat out taking a 5-7 hundred million $ team from someone for that would be incredibly hard to justify.
@  rocketrick : (08 September 2014 - 12:12 PM) Another NBA Owner making thoughtless statements about race relations is selling their franchise and probably going to walk away with hundreds of millions of dollars in profit to boot. What else is new?
@  thejohnnygold : (03 September 2014 - 07:03 PM) I don't recall seeing any of that....most of us are excited about his experience and the praise he is drawing from well-respected coaches. Perhaps you're confusing us with another group?

Just checked the scores before going to bed and was rubbing my eyes...it said OKC 64, Charlotte 24! That has got to be the biggest beatdown I've ever seen in a half of NBA basketball. I thought the Bobcats were much improved when I watched them for a little bit earlier in the season, but that scoreline is not pretty. Have they got some injuries or something?

(By the way, there doesn't really seem to be a good place for generic rest-of-the-NBA chat, so I just started a new thread here. Dunno if it's better to just create new ones whenever something momentous happens or have everything in one place).

Heh, sorry to get your hopes up. I doubt I'd be the first to post in a situation like that, because I'm not on Twitter (which seems to be where news breaks these days). But if I did, rest assured there would be a couple more capital letters ;).

Yea I saw that too. With the OKC bench playing the rest of the way, Charlotte outscored their first half of 24 with 26 4th quarter points lol. As Barkley would say, "Michael Jordan rollin over in his grave".

i know theres a fantasy bball thread, but since you speak of this game, yeah kemba was a complete negative for me in this one. i would have been better off with nobody playing the point.

Pretty funny about Barkley saying that Jordan would be rolling over in his grave. I wish I had TNT right now. That score is crazy and I can only imagine how painful it would be to watch film as a Charlotte player or to have been watching the game as a Bobcats fan. It was 79 to 25 in the third, wow!

I added a note in the title. I guess we'll just toss all NBA talk into here for now until there's enough for separate threads.

So who's the biggest surprise and biggest disappointment so far this year?

i would say the 2 biggest suprises are charlotte and milwauke.i figured ellis and jennings would be a disaster together. charlotte's been fun to watch but think they will lose a lot more games.

its good to see the warriors doing well, fun team to watch and ive always loved david lee.

biggest dissapointment is definitely the lakers and minnesota(they cant ever catch a break)

I agree with sircharles on both surprises. Really, who would have thought Charlotte would win these many games so far? And also Milwaukee....Ellis-Jennings seemed like Ellis-Curry 2.0, but he is playing for a defensive minded team right now, so his lack of defense is covered by the rest of the team.

The biggest disappointment? The Lakers of course, but I would have to add Indiana, maybe Chicago and I apparently, Toronto is living what we all thought we would be living right now: lots of close losses....Minnesota is cursed, and so is Golden State, Portland appears to be getting off it slowly

Biggest surprise is definitely the bobcats. Biggest upset is Boston. I heard a lot of people saying that the Celts would have a great year, and I didn't buy it(I don't believe theyre any better than last year, that's how much value I put in Ray Allen). 8-7 isn't awful, but for a team thought to be a 2-3 seed in the east, it's certainly an upset. An upset or not, I'm thrilled-I hate Boston.

I feel like LA is probably a slightly bigger upset that Boston at this point. Boston's big 3 of the last few seasons has turned into an 'aging 2' and there's only one up-and-comer on the team that can fill their shoes (Rondo - not sold on Jeff Green yet). They've brought in a few new guys who in the long term are probably going to work together pretty well, but given the fundamentally different style your team needs to play to accomodate a Jason Terry versus a Ray Allen I think it's to be expected that there will be some growing pains. I still expect that they will make the playoffs, but perhaps not as a high seed. And fundamentally, I don't think it's a huge issue for them if they're #2 or #6 - one thing they do have is a lot of time to sort things out and settle on a system that works, and once that happens they'll be a very difficult opponent for whoever they face.

Disappointment: LAKERS...not that I am actually disappointed they are losing. I am disappointed that I can no longer root for Steve Nash in good conscience.

Surprises: Golden State...and maybe Utah. Utah's bigs can play, but mo williams, randy foye and gordon heyward as the main guards???

I'm in agreement with most comments, but must add Dallas to the disappointment list... The team is unrecognizable anymore, and Dirk returning won't fix it. It is hard to believe they have fallen so far.

I think Boston probably should have blown it up this year and not have brought back Garnett/Bass added Jason terry etc... They will make the playoffs but only as a mid-low seed and might even be a first round out.

I don't see the Lakers as the "biggest" disappointment so far because of the magnitude of the changes they incurred over the off-season. Between the two teams(Boston and LAL) you have the loss of Ray Allen, gains of Jason Terry and Courtney Lee(which I don't see as huge moves of any sort), and you have the addition of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash with losses of Andrew Bynum and Ramon Sessions(huge changes). Throw in that the Lakers ditched Mike Brown, and INTENTIONALLY hired Mike D'Antoni instead of PHIL "THIRTEEN RINGS" JACKSON, what could really be expected of them at this stage? If someone was thinking the Lakers we're going to be 13-2 after fifteen games(in reality theyre 7-8), they were delirious.
