@  thejohnnygold : (27 April 2017 - 08:50 PM) I think Steph Curry and Kevin Durant would both say, "yes". That is largely how they got their MVP's
@  rocketrick : (27 April 2017 - 02:48 PM) So should MVP consideration also be based on Efficiency and not just DD's and TD's?
@  rocketrick : (27 April 2017 - 02:47 PM) Looking Forward to Round 2, Western Conf Semi-Finals, Most Likely vs. Spurs.
@  thejohnnygold : (23 April 2017 - 10:20 PM) "Pheeeeew!" --(Every Rockets fan today)
@  rocketrick : (20 April 2017 - 04:28 PM) Incredible Atmosphere at Toyota Center last night! Rockets are for Real people.....
@  thejohnnygold : (17 April 2017 - 12:47 PM) The defense was there too. All in all, a good win.
@  Mario Peña : (17 April 2017 - 04:08 AM) I like that effort on the boards tonight and second chance points tonight. I hope they can finish OKC in 5 or less.
@  DenverRocket : (05 April 2017 - 07:15 PM) Give me a shout and if I'm around, I'll be happy to honor my commitment!
@  slick shoes : (05 April 2017 - 06:34 PM) I'll be in Denver Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend ;)
@  DenverRocket : (05 April 2017 - 04:52 PM) Oh and congrats to @SlickShoes on winning the bracket challenge handily :) If I ever meet you, I'll buy you a beer!

@  thejohnnygold : (31 March 2017 - 04:19 PM) Probably...mine's toast.
@  slick shoes : (31 March 2017 - 02:12 PM) Is it safe to assume I have taken the bracket challenge??

@  DenverRocket : (15 March 2017 - 12:06 AM) If anyone is interested in joining a Red94 bracket challenge, I've set one up here: http://games.espn.co...groupID=1517203
@  slick shoes : (14 March 2017 - 02:48 PM) As much fun as it is to watch the Warriors lose, I'm gonna need them to go ahead and take 1st place again so that we can potentially avoid them until the WCF.
@  SadLakerFan : (13 March 2017 - 02:24 PM) My Lakers coming into town. Hope Bev can cover our SG of the future David Nwaba. He's lighting it up.
@  thejohnnygold : (08 March 2017 - 11:24 PM) I'm not really finding much info on it. We'll see if it persists or was just one of those things that happens in competition sometimes.

towards the end Lebron starts putting two or three moves together and it looks a lot like what he has been doing this season.

Hakeem looks like he could still get buckets in the post.

Ha, I thought the same thing. I don't think he missed a single shot the whole time. It's his knees that are the problem...can't take the running up and down anymore....if it were a half-court game he could still dominate!

Watching those two videos is hilarious. One(LBJ) understands the game of basketball. He understand the need for those hesitation fakes. It's to throw the defender out of sync. Melo is trying to do those moves without the subtle moves which make him look dumb. I like Melo, but it's night and day.

I agree. But first he needs to learn how to catch the ball.

LeBron looks really awkward trying to do the spin move in the first 15 seconds. He doesn't seem to get that he is trying to practice a post move, not a dribble move.

Exactly my thoughts when watching that. He seemed to be doing it like it was a dribble move no different than the spins you see Chris Paul and Kyrie Irving do regularly.

But he gets it, in the end. The end of the video, he was looking better and better. And if you watch a Heat game, he's translated those post moves into offense.

I think that is the biggest difference between the Melo video and the LeBron video is he does it Dream's way until he gets it. Melo never quite gets the same fluidity, although his jumper does look real pretty.

Am I the only one that immediately went to the gym to try these out? and no it didn't go well, apparently you have to have some athletic ability to pull these off consistently.

Dwight Howard's

I love how he looks in the video, a man his size shouldn't be able to move like that. With two or three summers working with Hakeem I think he would be scary. But in the interview part... man is he a little kid. He has a lot of lovableness to him, but he has to make a mental leap of maturity if he wants to be great.
