@  Dan G : (17 April 2014 - 10:17 PM) That is some interesting news. We gotta get past Portland first, but I like that stat for the next round.
@  feelingsuper... : (17 April 2014 - 12:45 PM) So yesterday during Truehoop TV Amin said the teams that win any season series 4 to 0 go on in the post season with a 51 and 4 record versus the losing team. Hmmmmmm...
@  Buckko : (15 April 2014 - 05:22 AM) Hope we can get him back in the offseason, he was just signed for the rest of the offseason.
@  jorgeaam : (15 April 2014 - 04:16 AM) Bulls release Tornike Shengelia and sign Greg Smith, well, that didn't take long
@  Cooper : (15 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) nice win. Dwight looks like he's ready go. Bev's still a little rusty but he should be fine.
@  Sir Thursday : (14 April 2014 - 10:24 PM) Thanks huang, that's useful knowledge :).
@  08huangj : (14 April 2014 - 01:15 AM) I've watched a lot of his games
@  08huangj : (14 April 2014 - 01:15 AM) Guys, I live in Guangzhou. Just in case you didn't notice, Powell was in Guangzhou playing with the tigers before he came to the Rockets. No midrange shot. Good rebounder. Bad defender. Good at attacking the rim. This is my summary for his time at Guangzhou.
@  Cooper : (13 April 2014 - 11:16 PM) hes 6-9 so id guess more of a pf but it doesn't really matter either way I guess.
@  Buckko : (13 April 2014 - 11:02 PM) Not really, you seen his season averages? Not pretty.
@  Sir Thursday : (13 April 2014 - 10:18 PM) He's more of a PF, I thought. You could always make the specious "RINGZZZ!" argument, since he won two with the Lakers...
@  Buckko : (13 April 2014 - 09:04 PM) Waived Pittman, signed Josh Powell. I don't really get why they signed a scrub SF.
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:41 AM) In the postgame interview, Bev said he was alright, but it looked iffy...
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:40 AM) Not watching the game. Just looking at the play-by-plays.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) Rockets win!
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) Oh gosh, I hope Beverley isn't hurt again... He was taken out in the last few seconds limping after falling and looking like he hurt his right knee...
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) yep
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 April 2014 - 02:35 AM) Harden, Lin, and Beverley all coming up big in these last few clutch minutes.
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:01 AM) And why is Parsons missing?
@  08huangj : (13 April 2014 - 02:00 AM) If Rockets don't get better soon, they are not going to be the fourth seed in the western conference.

I've never been a big fan of Kobe (understatement), but had come to respect his game more over the last couple years. But this season I got league pass, have been watching quite a few Laker games, and the respect has started to slide.

Defenders are afraid to breathe on Kobe unlike any other player in the league. This season I have seen a foul called for contact between Kobe's feet brushing into his defenders chest on a fadeaway. In last nights game, Harden was called for a foul in which Kobe pump-faked Harden into jumping straight up, then he pivoted forward and thrust his elbows into Harden's chest on the way down before shooting. The impact of calls like that isn't in the number of times Kobe goes to the line, it's in the amount of space he has to work with on the following possessions.
When LeBron rains down 28-foot three pointers like fire and brimstone or makes a one-man stampede to the rim, I see greatness.
When I watch Kobe standing at the line after missed fadeaways, I see a league protecting its investment in lucrative franchise and in a man who was prematurely anointed as the Next Jordan.

Kobe's career is at the end. You can't really compare current Kobe to old Kobe or LeBron.

Current Kobe's scoring numbers and efficency are actually better than old Kobe's and similar to LeBron's. My point is that if his name was not Kobe Bryant and his jersey did not say "Large revenue strea"--excuse me--"Lakers" on the front, I don't think he'd have the space to score at this rate.
