@  thejohnnygold : (25 July 2016 - 04:26 PM) I think I am going to like Bobby Brown...that is within the confines of our current strategy which is score, score, SCORE!
@  slick shoes : (22 July 2016 - 08:02 PM) The "super team" Knicks? lol
@  thejohnnygold : (22 July 2016 - 06:05 PM) On Josh Smith...my guess is the Knicks eventually sign him.
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 04:29 PM) The Jet has been released. Josh Smith will likely play for another team next season. Maybe he teams up with Dwight in ATL?
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 12:17 PM) Harden is now sending hitmen after Rockets legends' sons for badmouthing him on social media *facepalm*
@  slick shoes : (18 July 2016 - 02:22 PM) If you haven't seen the 30 for 30 "The Guru of Go", I recommend it before the upcoming season.
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 07:20 PM) Yea I know, but there were reports both sides were willing to have a reunion before Chicago signed him. So at the time, Canaan was an option, and a better one than Pablo at that. We should've capitalized on that one, especially with how well he fits the system for obvious reasons + age on his side.
@  thejohnnygold : (14 July 2016 - 03:43 PM) Canaan signed with Chicago already
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 03:24 PM) Don't love the Prigioni move. Thought for sure we had better options like bringing Canaan back or getting someone like Shane Larkin
@  DenverRocket : (14 July 2016 - 04:36 AM) Apparently signed Prigioni to a one-year contract (veteran minimum) with a team option for a second season.
@  slick shoes : (13 July 2016 - 08:38 PM) Chris Finch is out as an assistant. Bummer.
@  slick shoes : (11 July 2016 - 03:32 PM) Shame to lose Glove Jr. before the close of Summer League. Would have liked to see him get some court time.
@  Mario Peña : (09 July 2016 - 11:21 PM) I'm going to tentatively say I'm glad this is happening. I believe James is a top 5 player with all the tools to have a great year but this team needs an all star/glue guy/leader type and then maybe the magic can happen.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 July 2016 - 09:53 PM) If he plays defense I'll be fine
@  DenverRocket : (09 July 2016 - 07:51 PM) Bad news for the anti-Harden brigade, he's just signed a 4yr extension ($118m)
@  slick shoes : (07 July 2016 - 12:46 AM) Maybe these are just pieces to a larger puzzle... (fingers crossed)
@  thejohnnygold : (06 July 2016 - 08:21 PM) Morey has had a crush on him for a long time...another offense-only guy...
@  slick shoes : (06 July 2016 - 06:22 PM) We have just signed Nene to a one year deal....
@  Mario Peña : (06 July 2016 - 04:05 AM) I don't think Harden and Russ had the kind of relationship that could lead to that combined with my hunch that Westbrook has ambitions that might lead him to a big market. I suspect they might both be too alpha to mesh.
@  thejohnnygold : (06 July 2016 - 03:15 AM) I wouldn't hate it....but I wouldn't love it either.

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.
