@  2016Champions : (22 June 2013 - 06:12 PM) While we're making changes, is it possible to add the option of spoiler tags?
@  2016Champions : (22 June 2013 - 06:12 PM) Oh I see, there's a time frame now.
@  2016Champions : (22 June 2013 - 06:08 PM) Why was the option of editing posts removed?
@  RollingWave : (19 June 2013 - 05:12 AM) so the head band is like a final power seal for Lebron, only open in absolute need
@  BenQueens : (19 June 2013 - 03:51 AM) Ray Allen, why not. This is going to be 5.2 intense seconds of ball.
@  BenQueens : (19 June 2013 - 03:39 AM) Holy crap, that Parker 3.
@  BenQueens : (19 June 2013 - 03:38 AM) Please let there be a game 7, and let this be the margin in the 4Q of 7. Awesome.
@  RollingWave : (19 June 2013 - 03:18 AM) oh my, this is an epic game .. one more run by Duncan should....
@  2016Champions : (17 June 2013 - 05:26 AM) I had a feeling Ginobili would regress to the mean.
@  Dan G : (17 June 2013 - 04:33 AM) Now I had no idea Ginobli was gonna pull a Wade and turn back the clock. I give Pop the majority of the credit for that.
@  Dan G : (17 June 2013 - 04:32 AM) I don't think it was too ballsy on San Antonio's part. With the way Splitter has been playing and since Miami has started Miller the last two games, I thought it was inevitable that Ginobli would start.
@  RollingWave : (17 June 2013 - 02:57 AM) I must say that both team had some serious ballsy lineup changes this series, Ginobilli start? and dominate?
@  2016Champions : (16 June 2013 - 09:26 PM) According to Dr. Klapper, treatment for Parker's hamstring will only last one half. Lateral movement and jumping will be a problem.
@  2016Champions : (16 June 2013 - 04:56 AM) Parker said Pop was very angry with him for the constant nagging insisting he can play, Pop really didn't want Parker to play. Just goes to show Pop knows best.
@  RollingWave : (16 June 2013 - 04:28 AM) Parker says his hamstring is almost shot , that would probably doom the Spurs if he can't play at least 80%
@  2016Champions : (15 June 2013 - 12:38 AM) Miami is 6-0 in playoffs following losses (outscoring opponents by 20.7 PPG in those games). They've won 12 straight games following losses.
@  2016Champions : (14 June 2013 - 04:50 PM) The Heat are notoriously slow starters. Once they get going it's like a snowball effect, they get more dangerous as they go along.
@  2016Champions : (14 June 2013 - 04:49 PM) My heart says SA, but my mind says MIA
@  rocketrick : (14 June 2013 - 11:06 AM) Anybody else going to San Antone for Game 5??
@  RollingWave : (14 June 2013 - 10:15 AM) The Heat is doomed / the Spurs is doom , repeat until game 7

    Going all in on Dwight would not be my idea of "the quickest way to crash and burn" although I do partially agree with the part about Eric Gordon--the same could be said about Josh Smith if he gets the max and keeps playing like he has this season. 

     

    Yeah it's not bad, but truth be told, if we replace this year's Asik with This years Dwight it only brings us up about 2-3 wins at best... aka maybe push us past the Warrior for 6th seed, that's not exactly what championships are made of. I'm sure Howard might be better going forward, but he's also pushing 30 so we might also accept that he's more like a 8 win player than a 10+ one going forward as well.

     

    At the end of the day, all moves have risk obviously, taking no risk = being the Bobcats. but the main point at the end of the day is, no matter who we get, we need THIS group of player, almost all of them, to get better too, by a significant amount, to have any chance at all for a real title run.  Harden need to play defense and stay off some of his bad tedencies,  Lin and/or Parsons need to score consistently and generally be consistent and/or improve on other facedes of their game, Asik need to score at least a little more, Beverly either need to flat out take over the starting role without a doubt (and not because Lin sucks, but because he's flat out good.)  or at least be a super 6th man. which means he needs to show at least some more competence in scoring.  Greg Smith need to not foul out in 10 minutes. one of the PF need to step up and another one need to be a legit bench guy etc...  if all of these happen, we can add no one and be a very serious threat, if none of these happen, we better add Lebron or nothing is going to happen.

    I disagree with just looking at the supposed statistics saying Dwight adds this many wins or that many wins. Considering how he has moved teams and suffered multiple injuries there is no telling what he will be like next year. He still has the potential to be better than he ever was in the past. Dwight is a no brainer for the Rockets and Morey knows that.

    Also even if all the players on the current Rockets' improve this team is still not a contender. This team needs depth just so players don't start keeling over next year for starters.

    Think I would rather grab Bledsoe than Gordon.  Just sayin.

     

    Harden's D is atrocious, but that might be why they had him guard Durant.  Kevin is gonna score anyway.  Focusing on Westbrook, and getting him to be more volatile, seemed to be the wiser path than trying to shut down Durant.

     

    Asik cannot catch the ball - we know this.  So why doesn't Harden?  It should have dawned on him by now that his passes are too ambitious for Omer to handle.  Greg Smith can handle his passes better.  Have Lin or Bev throw it into Asik - they seem to have an easier time of it.

     

    If Asik developed a pump fake, he'd be much more difficult to guard around the rim.  Or, you know, passed it back out a bit more often.

     

    Our big question now is what we will change for game 3?  Harden at the point, Parsons at the 2, DMo at the 3, TJones at the 4 and Asik?  :)

     

    Joking, joking.  Love to see that on the floor once, tho.

      I'm pointing out this year, yes I agree he's not 100% this year, but I would also point out that if we have Howard at his best, this year, replacing Asik, we STILL would only be around 3/4 seed at best, and a long shot to winning the title.  The point remains that we need the entire cast to get better. given the nature of this team being young, the likely route is that at least some of these youngester get better and we add another piece,  however, I just point out that most fans are way too focused on the later (add a peice part) and forgets that the former (young players need to get better) part is probably equally important, if not more so.
