    Were you expecting a mark below .500 for the Cs
    Because you couldn't possibly expect them to top the standings, unless you wear Tommy glasses

    The real breakout has been happening in the Oakland so far. Golden State has won 11 road games and matched their total wins at road for the last season already.

    Well, obviously I wasn't expecting them to be at the top of the standings. However, I did not think for one second they would be struggling to just break even...

    In other news I'm still slightly shocked Avery got fired...

    A team that lacks size cannot hope to continuously win interior battles in the paint, so, things are always going to be tough.
    As a much more talent-loaded team than the Celtics, the Nets were expected to be better, although I knew there was going to be some growing pains, too.
    Kind of an overreaction, in my opinion.

    It is. However, I believe the relationships in the locker room between Avery and the players (mainly Deron) were slowly deteriorating over time. I think that's one of the main reasons he got fired outside of their current record. I don't believe Avery is a bad coach. Until this off season the Nets didn't have the player personnel to compete with the best in the east. He didn't really get the "fair shake" as they call it.

    The Celtics never win the interior battles. They get pushed around in the paint, fail to grab any boards, and prevent second chance points. However, they always found a way to win despite their chronic problems.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Avery Johnson just isn't a good coach. He owe his last and the next job to Dirk, that much is simple
    anyway, I didn't expect much from the Nets neither.
    Deron is playing bad and with a bad attitude for almost 3 yeras now.
    Gerald Wallace always relied on his athleticism and now he's not that young anymore
    Lopez and Humphries must be the worst help defense bigs on the NBA... they just don't mesh well

    I don't like them very much

    Realistically speaking, they won't need the legs since a deep run is looking far away at the moment. All top-tier seeds are playing better basketball than the Lakers. It will at least be fun if they get swept by the Clippers in the play-offs. I would definitely enjoy such a scenario.

    ^It will no longer be called Laker town if that happens I see the Clippers going to the conference finals this year IF they can remain healthy.

    It's always excuses with Kobe. This guy never blames himself whenever the Lakers struggle mightily.

    If I averaged 30.3 ppg on 47% shooting and we were below .500, I would slap them in the face. Since he doesn't do that, Kobe is a nice guy.
    Or maybe in the locker room..

    but he's not wrong, the team has no legs to play proper defense, himself included. The youngster, the almighty D12 is moving like a old man since his surgery.

    The bigger news revolves around Royce White as of now. The guy refused to go down the D-League, and got suspended.
    There is a chance that he will never play in an NBA game, which would be said, since he was said to be a versatile player in college and the expectations from him were rather high.
