    So, the NBA season continues on.

    Discuss general NBA stuff here.

    Obviously, there'll be numerous other basketball threads, but this can be sort of a base for related discussion.

    Knicks leading scorer for their first home win of the season: Renaldo Balkman, he that was drafted much higher than expected.

    Oh, and out of the University of South Carolina :D


    Thats why I watch at least some NBA games, for the players I followed in college :p

    Funny, I follow the Bulls more now than I did then :p

    Of course, I also follow sports in general a lot more as well, but still.

    Yeah, I've been watching it. I love close endings.

    EDIT: Ugh. Gordon missed the three.

    Nice try on the last second flop to try and get the foul. Good no call by the officials though.

    I made a bet last week that the Giants would win against the Bears by three points on a late 4th Quarter drive.

    I think the Lakers are one of the most underrated teams in the NBA...

    They have a solid core, with the knockout punch in Bryant...

    Bryant and Odom when working together form an amazing duo...

    Great coach...

    Good young talent...

    Solid vetrans....

    Yet most people put them on the playoff buble...

    What's up with that?

    They're all haters. :p On a serious note, as horrendous as the loss in the playoffs this past spring was, it does serve as an important tool of learning for this team, as they can look to better handle/improve their play for the playoffs next spring.

    Although the Lakers won last night (Kobe became the youngest NBA player ever to reach 17,000 points last night; he had 31 in the game, including 12 4th quarter points), they should have had an easier time beating a team like Toronto. On defense, the Lakers are still having problems (19 turnovers last night).

    Bulls are really crapping it up at the moment but they've had some tough games and have played the most games so far away from home. ***damn Circus!

    Lakers @ Jazz tonight. Should be a great game, hopefully the purple & gold will pull it out.

    Nah...The Lakers are a good team, and, I beleive, really underated.

    We beat the Clippers...

    Best in the West, methinks.

    I disagree.

    Yes, the Mavs are a bit better than the Lakers, but really, I think that the Lakers would win 4 out of 10 against the Mavs.
