      Can Rockets owner Leslie Alexander land Dwight Howard?

    3. CSN: Would you rather have Howard or Paul?

      THIS:
      "Guys that have won championships, Kobe, Michael, Lebron, they didn't need a point guard. They were as good as point guard for their teams so you really didn't need to have a great point guard next to them.

      You know the Celtics had Rajon Rondo when they had Allen and Pierce and Kevin Garnett and Rondo got the point and he ran the show really well. You didn't a big time point guard with those guys because they were gonna to dominate the ball and they needed to dominate the ball"

    4. Just look at what LBJ did yesterday...I guess if you go without a PG, you have to land a guy who has to be at least on par as LBJ.

    5. Howard didn't bring Lakers a championship and neither did Paul to the Clippers. What make you guys think the Rockets would buy their way into championship.
      Ever since Les got Lin out of NY, whatever moves, stupid or not turned out to be rosy. Just wish Lin leave the Rox and have the rocket fans fell back to their original despair. I hate the crutchfans, the ungrateful Lin haters.
      Asik + Lin + Parson is a winning combination and Harden wasn't a factor in most of the games. He personally lost quite a few games. No one single-handedly won the championship unless he's a heck of a team player.

    4. So why is James Harden in Asia?

      Cut through all the propaganda about being a "a basketball ambassador" or, more hilariously, "helping youth basketball," Harden is obviously there to expand his brand and make marketing inroads into Asia.

      Basically, Harden is trying to pimp off of his association with JLin.

      Harden basically pushed Lin aside in terms of their roles on the basketball court.

      And now off-the court, Harden is trying to move in on JLin's marketing presence in Asia.

      What a teammate!

    5. I didn't like Harden's hero ball.
      There could be only one hero, the kid from Harvard.
      I don't think will get many fans in Asia too.
      It's a waste of time.

    6. lxy my thoughts exactly. CP/JH = parasitic.

    7. I really think so too, i get that feeling from those 2.. they don't seem as genuine.
      I felt that Jared Jeffries, Landry, and others with Lin during Linsanity are more genuine because they were actually there. idk both CP and JH just rubs me wrong the way.
      lol, funny story I used to follow CP on twitter, then after some serious thinking I unfollowed him, lol, idk what got to me, I'm probably just too sensitive about JLin.

      Delete
    8. I don't follow anything about Parsons and Haren. I skip any articles, news, vids or tweets about them. Even if I were to bump into them anywhere around the globe, I wouldn't say hi, take photo or go near to them. I just wouldn't!
      Oh, I would do the same to McHale and Morey too.

  8. The Rockets are not looking to assemble a talented cast of role players (Like the Spurs). They are on Superstar hunting mode (Like the Heat). And Jeremy Lin does not fit their plans, not after they signed James Harden to a max contract.
    I look at 2012-2013 as a wasted year for Jeremy's development. Let's hope this season isn't more of the same.

    Check out my new forum on Jeremy Lin and Asian American issues.

    1. And yet the Spurs model is clearly superior. Imagine if McHale spent half as much time getting Harden to play team basketball as the Rockets org does in plotting to gather superstars.

      Delete
    2. It's not wasted at all ABC. Jeremy learned to.play off the ball, learned to catch and shoot and improved his finishing at the rim. Hopefully next year he'll improve more his playmaking if we find someone who could give him the ball...

      Delete
    3. Wasted year most definitely. The Rox took a player on the verge of superstardom and made him into an afterthought. We can thank Morey and McHale for that.

      Delete
    4. It is silly to always ask Lin to focus a lot on catch and shoot . Did anyone expected MJ pretend as good as Trent Tucker or Regie Miller type of shooter . It is just BS.

      Delete
    5. Harden needs to be selected in the All Stars team at least once in the next few years to get his approx $10 m bonus. So this year will be the same iso. And since Lin is taking votes away from him, Lin could well be traded away soon.

    6. not completely wasted.

      lin earned $$ and learned about who to trust...

    7. @Solidz75,

    9. Yes to Michael Terry. No doubt. IMO NYK fans were the only fans who truly appreciated Lin because of what he did for their team last uear. Lin would've thrived with Kidd mentoring him and having the chance to play the role of pg. I mean NY media was going nuts over Prigioni for Gods sake. Lin may say otherwise now, but Lin loved NYk fans and fed off their energy. He would've absolutely thrived there instead if being treated like a scrub by morons like McHale.

      NYK fans and media would've never let the coach get away with what the Houston coaches did to Lin this year. For example, ehen Lin had the Linsanity game against the spurs this year and was subsequently marginalized the next few games, no way the fans would be allowed that to happen.

      Again, in my opinion, houstom actually was one of the worst situation he could've gotten into. Not being developed as the pg of the team .. Being forced to change the way he plays ( a homerun hitter being forced to bunt). Houston really effed him up.

      Delete
    10. Houston is a freaking cemetery and rarely show up, Lin can't feed any energy from the fans.

      I like Solidz's bunt analogy, but it actually much worst. Not only forcing home run hitter to bunt, but the damn bunt is not even a sac bunt to bring runner home for RBI, but sac bunt to just advance the runner(Harden or Parsons) to scoring position (2nd or 3rd base). Goddammit

      Delete
    11. In the short term, yes Lin got paid a big contract. His agent in essence sold him to the highest bidder when his value reached a peak.
      But long term, playing for the Rockets will bury his career, and make him a bench player in the NBA. He won't be resigned to a big contract, he'd be lucky to get veterans minimum non-guaranteed contract. That's how far down Morey and Mcfail dropped his value. He went from starting PG to sub behind Patrick Beverley. And I predict more of the same duties or less next season.

      Delete
    12. I dunno. Lin only has to show the Linsanity clips and the games he played Linsanely for Rox, and the Harden contract where his KPI is to achieve All Star status (ie rest of team has to defer to his highness) for potential managers to offer Lin big money

      Delete
    13. People have short memories. Lin keeps this up, he will be soon be forgotten.

      I love the fact that these so called basketball analysts don't even take into consideration how obviously misused he was this year.

      I'm also bothered by the fact that he wasn't even invited to team USA workouts after being invited last year. Even parsons got an invitation this year.

      This is how far his stock has fallen. Morey and McHale ruined him because they believe his ceiling is that of a role player - never a leader. They are essentially forcing him into that role - a role that Lin looks like he has accepted for now.

      How can he be a leader if he keeps getting admonished by the coaches. This upcoming year will be huge for his future. If he unfairly ends up as a back up to Beverley... I see him going in the path of barrier. Just a solid player but certainly dispensable and not an essential piece of the franchise.

      Delete
    14. Lin finally has a chance of leaving the Rox.
      I can't be more happy than that.
      There is something wrong with their mentality.
      San Antonio is the greatest team with the greatest coach.
      You don't see hero ball there.

      McHale's philosophy of winning at all cost is going to ruin everything that Jeremy brought to the team. Time to depart and let the Rocket do their star-treking.

      Jeremy is getting better at the end of season and I believe he would lead a championship team one day. The team isn't the Hardening Rockets.

      Delete
    15. @via, i'm not sure i like what i read:

      "No one on the Rockets can create the points Harden did during the season, and while Lin had his moments for short 3-4 game stretches, putting up impressive numbers, he’s not the scorer and dominant offensive player, or inclined to have dominant stretches on defense, like Harden does."

      Really? Lin isn't a dominant offensive player? Lin can't create his own shots better Harden can?
      Harden has more dominant stretches on defense than Lin inclined to have?

      "He’s good enough to be a starter in this league, even if it takes some growing pains from him and the team willing to give him the reins. He’ll never be the kind of player James Harden is, "
      I can only agree that Lin will never be the kind of selfish player James Haren is.

      Overall, if Lin is given the rein, not only he would have similar if not better stats, his teammates would have also fared better. In conclusion, James Haren is an overrated player!

    16. I wouldn't put too much stock on an article from a website whose writers speculate that the water may be wet or it may get cold in the winter.

    17. Greg Popovich would not hesitate to bench a James Harden for playing hero ball or slacking on defense. In Houston The Beard gets rewarded for those boneheaded plays by coaches and media.

      Delete
    18. I think Pop would do something more creative and dastardly if Harden were on the spurs and starts to go iso. Something like benched for 10 straight games comes to mind.

      Delete
    19. I think, the only time Pop will yell at Jeremy or yank him out of the game is when he can't get out of a double team which results to turnovers.

  10. Spurs is a perfect example of a sports organization which decides on a system and then finds players and pieces that fit the system best, whereas Miami finds very talented players and then tries to put a system around them. I think Rockets is closer to the Heat mold, but they are not as talented, and Harden is not a LBJ or passes to open teammates. It's like most Spurs players would not be All-Stars in any other teams, but yet Pop has them playing like All-Stars. I thought Pop out-coached Spoelstra the last game, but I am sure Spoelstra will come back with a different look.

    1. There is something to be said about building a franchise, a dynasty by putting in the right pieces together and developing your players as they learn to become a team. I realize this is becoming more and more difficult with players always looking to make more money wherever they can, but I absolutely detest the way Miami was built. Still a long shot, but would love to see the spur triumph over the epitome of superficiality that is the Miami Heat.

      Delete
    2. Pop sure doesn't treat any of his players like all-stars.

      Delete
    3. Yes, Spurs seem like they actually went through the process. I think once Duncan shows his commitment to Pop, everyone follows. Besides, most Spurs starters are from abroad where they respect coaches more; no wonder Pop brings foreign players. Can you imagine Pop trying to deal with Allen Iverson or Spreewell type of players?

      Delete
    4. This organization is just what Lin needs

      Delete
    5. the Spurs model worked well for Jeremy's ex-DLeague team mate Danny Green. I'm not saying Jeremy should be demoted as a role player, but imho even if he is playing with Duncan, I don't think there will be deferring like how it is when he is playing with Harden.

      Delete
    6. Give alot credit to the shooting coach. He has provided pop the weapons to make this system work. Of course pop is the mastermind. I remember watching kawhi playing in the ncaa tourney as a san diego state player, he couldnt shoot worth a lick. I thought he would be a bust. Totally surprised when spurs traded for him. I thought theyre onto something. Now i see it. Him, along with green, bonner, neal have really elevated the spurs to a fourth, fifth, and sixth dimension like isabellijane mentioned. I hope jeremy gets in touch with this shooting coach. Worth every penny if both are willinv.

      Delete
    7. @mt Jeremy will always stick to Doc Scheppler as his shooting coach and Josh Fan as his personal trainer. He is 100% loyal to them, even if they are not the best trainers for an NBA athlete.

      Delete
    8. ABC, that is why Lin was hurt when he was let go by the Knicks and will be as well, when he is traded by Morey, one of most disloyal gm's I've ever come across.

  12. I just feel puzzled...

    How come a "SUPER" team like Heat only scored 77 points in a "playoff final" game?

    Question to whoever watched it: is it a boring game?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ever since the Indiana series, it's as if the Heat have come back down to earth. Their mystique is rubbing away as fast as you can say 77 points. The Pacers and Spurs were certainly not intimidated by them. The game in Miami they got the benefit of officiating. Miami still dangerous once they turn up their energy on defense. However that won't last as you can kinda see that Wade is gasping for air and the rest of the team play is day to day. The series pretty much boils down to defense and three point shooting. Give the Spurs young players alot of credit, particularly Kawhi and Green. I didn't think they would hold up under pressure even before the season began. I had predicted they would falter. They haven't yet. Very nice complementary players. Great pickups by the Spurs.

      Delete
    2. the previous game showed the concept of "Big 3" doesn't exist in Spurs, because what they have is the "Big 6" - if Big 3 - first (Parker/Manu/Duncan) is playing average, Big 3 - second (Leonard/Green/Neal) will pick up the slack.I can't help but cheer for the underdogs,Green (Jeremy's former D-League team mate) who was cut twice by Spurs and Neal who was undrafted, not backing down against superstars like LeBron and Wade. goes to show that the media are all over the superstar team - when LeBron blocked Splitter's shot in game 2, every media outlet has made a story about it, complete with video.game 3, when Green blocked Lebron, well the media is all about what LeBron should do to overcome the embarrassment of being a Spurs roadkill.

      imho, even if a lot are saying that if Jeremy plays under Pop, he will be buried under the bench, I still believe Pop (or another tough,disciplinarian who instills "team-first" mentality to his players, like how Pop threatened to cut a young,uncoachable Danny Green, with the latter leaving the former a voicemail pleading to take him back to the team) will be the best coach for Jeremy in the long run.

      Delete
    3. Miami is tired. They often talk about rest vs rust. Rest is always preferred. Going 7 games with Indiana took a lot out of the Heat. Playoff games are very high intensity, probably 1.5 times as tiring as a regular season game. Also don't forget that Miami is in it's 3rd Finals in a row. That's 12 best of 7 series that they've played outside of the regular season. Pop has been resting his guys carefully all season. The Spurs will take this series unless the refs take it from them.

      Delete
    4. The team that won game 3 when the series is tied 1-1 has gone to win 92.3% of the time.

      Stats favor spurs for sure. But can the spurs bench keep it up?

      I really don't want the heat to win.

      Delete
    5. Spurs for 2013 champs,or any team playing in the Finals vs Heat. still want confidence win over cockiness

    6. The Spurs has lots of depth and their coach is a genius.

  15. People say that Lin is wasting time in Houston. Time is never wasted, only opportunities. Winners never waste time or opportunities. They make the most of it. Chinese people have a saying, "in business or war, watch the timing". Lin has proven many times already that he can sieze the opportunity, in Harvard and in NY.

    “The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is watching.”
    ― John Wooden.
    This is why Lin has been able to sieze his opportunities. He doesn't waste his time waiting for opportunities. We can lament the fact that our paths in life is blocked by prejudice or injustice or we can control the things we can do within ourselves. Sports psychologist contends that this ability by athletes to always find controllability in their game a must have ability in order to reach greatness. Some wishes that Lin would be less self effacing in losses, but the truth is that this is his way of controlling his own destiny. When his team loses, he doesn't blame anyone else because he doesn't care about how someone else has failed. Lin only cares about how he has failed, that is his own controllability and accountability. Athletes that complain about others show the lack of this most important human strength.

    It's an empty ocean of opportunities for most Asians but that doesn't mean we don't put out the best bait on our lines. Using time properly is the way to control our destiny.

    2. Your optimism is commendable and all, and no one is saying Lin is not trying to make lemonade out of a lemon, but this year has clearly been a waste in Lin's career.

      You can't deny that his stock has fallen mightily this year - that has a lot to do with Lin coming to a franchise that clearly does not believe in him.

      You could argue that Lin is part of the development process and is just going through growing pains, and that would be fine if I believed that Lin was a big part of this teams's future but Morey has publically said Lin is dispensable and is showing his true colors by going after cp3.

      So no. No inspiring quotes will sugercoat the crappy situation in which lin has found himself. He is not even being given a chance to prove himself as a pg. what position does Lin even play now?

      The best thing Lin can do other than trying to do the best with what he's been dealt is to hope that he gets traded to a team that believes in him.

      Delete
    3. Bob, you first state that people here say Lin wasted time in Houston. Then, you say winner don't waste opportunity.

      That's your logical fallacy. You're equivocating that people here are saying Jeremy has wasted opportunities.

      Bob, no one here has said anything of the sort.

      Delete
    4. I think he is saying that this year cannot be considered a waste because winners do not waste opportunities.

      I say that Lin did not waste this year, which was clearly a waste by the way Lin had to find a way not to waste it because of the circumstances he was placed under. Is that clear?

      Delete
    5. I agree with Bob.

      In the grand scheme of things, Lin can only control the things he can control.

      Overall I think Lin played very well for his role.

      Any time a guy produces as much as Lin does in the kind of role Lin has, I don't consider it a waste.

      I'm already looking forward to next season, no matter where Lin ends up or what role he's assigned.

      Delete
    6. Wait a minute.... if Morey was going after CP3, how does that suggest he doens't believe in Lin at all? If I had a really good pg but could get an amazing pg.... if winning is my objective, I"m doing the latter. Just because you have a good player doesn't mean you don't go after an even better one if you can achieve those ends. Of course, I'm sure people will have great arguments against this logic.

      Delete
    7. Bamboo, do u see cavs, wizs or minn going after a pg? If you have a young player on your team with great potential that u truly believe in, would u really look to upgrade that position? This is is freaking common sense. It's one thing if the Rox actually gave Lin a chance to play the pg role before they decided to look elsewhere. lin was doomed from the start. Morey ( and everyone who gives morey a pass) can go eff themselves.

      Delete
    8. @KHuang, for his role, the Rockets could put in Tony Douglas, Patrick Beverly, or even Aaron Brooks and not see any significant drop off ... because that's how limited the role was, just give the ball up to Beard and get out of his way type of role.

    2) Dwight Howard seems to be open to other teams : nets are real contender in getting Howard cause it's still new york and big amount of money and they got trade assets like brook lopez even if they'll find difficult to sign and trade

    3) if rockets miss Howard and Paul they're gonna sign josh smith.

    So my prediction is jeremy will probably stay in houston hoping Mchale could give him the ball and IF traded it'll be lakers and a small chance to atlanta for smith and teague.

    So i'd say :

    60% houston
    35% lakers
    5% Hawks

    1. really hard to say y'know, after last year, Idk what anymore. Lin was for surely 100% staying with the Knicks but that was a complete 360, he ended up in Houston.
      idk, I'm really just being patient and hoping that whatever happens is the best for JLin.

    2. Sure MXMoua. But last year he was a free agent... This year he's got a contract and we'll see what happens ...

      Praying God everything will turn out good

    3. If I were a general manager of a lottery team, I'd be trying to trade for Lin right now.

      I've done some minimal draft snooping, and I feel that Lin's got more game and upside than any of the players in the 2013 NBA draft.

      Assuming that Lin is used correctly, I fully expect him to be able to turn around any lottery team he lands on.

      Were Houston to trade Lin to a bottom feeder team, Lin's situation wouldn't be worse than what Lin walked into in the fall of 2012 when Kevin Martin and Omer Asik were the only true NBA veterans for Lin to work with.

      Lin for the WIN.

      completely agree as usual. Give jeremy a good center and good role players and he'll turn crap into gold

  18. Watching the Finals game, Manu as playmaker is questionably....questionable. if Jeremy was playing with the Spurs, it will be another Miami roadkill

  19. "The latest buzz says the Houston Rockets will make a strong bid for Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger, supposedly on the trading block. Word is Granger is available after missing all but a few games this past season with a knee injury, but that the Pacers aren’t against keeping him.

    Of course, it’s not exactly a secret the Rockets will remain in a holding pattern until they find out what becomes of Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, an unrestricted free agent."

    1. Strategy, he's been known to rest his starters for the next game. Remember the Miami game in the regular season where he started the bench, the entire league was upset that he didn't put in his best players. But it was the 1st game of a back to back.

      Delete
    2. I was expecting him to yank Manu (bad passing) and Splitter out of the game. damn there was no one guarding Splitter and he wouldn't/couldn't shoot the ball! Neal and Green are both getting hot in 3 point land and no one's feeding them the ball.

      Delete
    3. Do the spurs know something about rest and when to give up as it relates to present and future wins. Are there stats on this? This is the finals, if another coach did this he will get alo of flak for this

    1. Linsanity was a slap to the face for McHale, the last coach to cut Lin. Then Houston signing Lin back for lots of money was an even bigger slap to the face. McHale is a bitter old man who wants to prove Jeremy sucks and will never give Lin a chance. FREE LIN!!!

  24. This website doesn't work in China for some reason.

    I think JLin would be a good fit on a team like the Spurs.


    Off-topic, anyone else think the Spurs are done and Lebron is getting his second ring?

    Even if Spurs win Game 5. I don't see the Heat losing Game 6 and there is no way Heat will lose Game 7 at home unless Lebron or two of the Big 3 are injured. What a shame, Spurs had this series in hand, but they choked it away.

    1. I wouldn't say that the Spurs "choke".

      Sometimes teams get overwhelmed by superstar talent. The Spurs are hardly immune to that, especially against a stacked athletic team like Miami that has great individual talent.

      I also don't agree that the Spurs had the series "in hand". The Miami Heat are a formidable team that can beat anyone on any given night, and usually they do!

  25. Looks like Chris Paul and Dwight Howard want to play together... Pack your baggage ladies and gentlemen ... We're going to LA

    1. I'd be nervous about a Lakers trade.

      The Lakers want only the best players at every position. If Lin ends up in LA, I'm going to assume that he's there only temporarily.

      I don't know how Mike D'Antoni would handle Lin. LA is a different situation from NY. D'Antoni made Steve Nash into a low percentage spot up corner shooter last season, and I have more faith in Lin's spot up shooting abilities than Nash's!

      With Kobe Bryant injured, Lin would be a natural fit as the starting SG for the Lakers.

      I can imagine Lin facing off against James Harden and forcing Harden into a poor shooting night while also scoring at will in Harden. It would be like those NY and GS debacles where Lin just went wild with vengeance against his former team.

      Delete
    2. Well he could end up with Clippers as well. Lin & Bledsoe or Lin & Nash?

      Delete
    3. On the Clippers, Randy Foye is the guy who's most likely to have a Novak or Parsons or Asik breakout from playing next to Lin.

      I remember when good ol' Kevin McHale was the GM for the Wolves and drafted Brandon Roy in order to trade for Foye. McHale cited Roy's bad knees, but the trade was criticized severely. Roy became an All Star while Foye had a great rookie sunmer league and that was it for him.

      Both Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan would benefit greatly from playing with Jeremy Lin. Unlike Chris Paul who gambles a ton on defense and requires help in guarding his man, Jeremy Lin can cover larger swaths of the court while also keeping his own man from scoring. I honestly think Lin can do every bit as good a job for the Clippers as Chris Paul did.

      Now if the Clippers get a coach like George Karl that openly believes in Lin, the Clippers with Lin would be a real force next season.

      Delete
    4. Well khuang i'm not happy bout Lin leaving houston especially for him... I think he thought to be there improving with harden and Parsons....

      I have the same opinion about a lakers trade: i don't think he could be there his whole carreer and we don't know how long D'antoni will be in LA....

      Anyway with jeremy the lakers will play as a european team with a double playmaker : nash Lin Kobe as sf and then we don'tknow. For sure jeremy will turn the lakers into title contender in an instant and could improve the finance of lakers in tickets and marketing. At least he'll have a coach who trust in him

      I don't think he could be a Clipper cause they'd not agree a sign and trade with Lin and or Asik and or t-rob.

      As i said jeremy will lead the lakers to the banner number 17

      Delete
    5. Well even i would like to see jeremy with the Clippers but i don't think that is going to happen. He and griffin could be like stockton and malone.... But i don't think the Clippers will agree to replace Paul with jeremy cause they already have Bledsoe. Jeremy would be better than Paul cause he's not selfish

      we'll see ... Praying God everything will turn out good....

    6. Maybe i speaked too early :D

      Looks like they both want to play with the Clippers... We'll see....17 days to july 1st ...

    8. Spotless Mind, there's nothing to worry about.

      Jeremy Lin is a COMPLETE basketball player who can thrive on any team he is assigned to.

      After watching Lin split double and triple teams on his own while playing bonecrushing perimeter defense with absolutely no help, I am even more sold on Lin's excellence than ever before. Every kind of scheme was thrown at Lin, and he beat them all with teammates tanking on him.

      Thus the offseason superstar shuffle doesn't impact Lin's ability one bit. Lin is going to produce, no matter how little he plays or what team he's sent to. I have total faith in Lin's ability to thrive in any role, more now than ever.

      Players like Lin that can make other players better can succeed in any basketball situation.

      Delete
    9. On a different team, Lin's individual stats may fluctuate depending on how much time he is allowed to play.

      What won't fluctuate is Lin's effort, per minute production, and winning impact.

      Ever since Lin was a promising rookie in GS who was #2 in the entire NBA for steals and blocks per minute among point guards, Lin has been a positive player who has made the most of his minutes. This is why he's been involved in so many comebacks and upsets at the NBA level.

      I love Lin's game. To me he is Jason Kidd with an accurate jump shot and no criminal record!

      Delete
    10. Agree khuang. The only thing that matters is jlin going to a team that truly believes in him with a coach that want to build a team around him.

      Let's see what could happen:

      -sign and trade with Clippers or lakers
      -houston to chase both Paul AND Howard could give players for free in order to create cap space. So bye Lin and bye Asik and bye t-rob. In this scenario i'd like Lin ending up with sacramento kings who now have a new and brilliant coach and a great center as partner.

      Anyway a little more than 2 weeks and We'll know what happens :D

      Delete
    11. In sacramento Lin would have:

      -a great fan base

      -former teammates

      -a young and good coach with defensive mind

      -demarcus cousins

      -a team with religious name :D

      Delete
    12. I can't help it - I LIKE DeMarcus Cousins.

      I wasn't a fan of him coming out as an early entry candidate, as I felt that he needed one more season to mentally mature. It's not that his game wasn't ready, it was his mind that I was worried about.

      I would love to see Lin and Cousins together. I think Lin would have a steadying influence on Cousins, just like Lin had a steadying influence on JR Smith.

  26. Heat is turning up their D one notch, which is leading to more TOs for Spurs. Unless Spurs' continue their hot streak of making 3s, it's all over. Heat took Spurs' best punches and survived. Spurs has to win the next game at their home court and then get super streaky-lucky in Miami to win. When the tough gets going, the best players rise to the top. Duncan is making more and more mistakes against tough D. If I had to bet my dough, I would bet my money on Heat.

    1. By "streaky-lucky", I mean in 3 point shooting. Heat knows Spur players are looking to pass to 3 point shooters now. That means more TOs by Spurs.

  27. The x factor is and was ( last year) chris bosh. If he comes to play then spurs dont have a chance. Id watch out for haslem too. Spurs will probably try to draw more fouls on him next game and catch him sleeping. Last game they couldnt setup early cuz miami wouldnt let them. Lets see if spurs can impose themselves this time. Lane passes have to shorten up as well. More fakes to avoid telegraphing passes leading to to's.
