    and so it begins..


    Lakers Dream team... 0 and 2 to start.. Dropped first game to Dallas... Dwight missed 11 of 14 freethrows in the first game.. and Kobe didn't take a single free thrown in 34 minutes of play.

    Lakers dropped second game to portland.. Dwight mode 15 of 19 freethrows and 9 field goals for 33 total.. Kobe dropped 30.. and got a chance to shoot some freethrows with Nash only playing 16 minutes. Howard also led the team in assists with 5 and blocked 1 shot.

    Ray Allen dropped 19 in 30 minutes off the bench on his former Team in Miami's win over Boston..

    Hardin dropped 37 & 12.. to go along with 6 boards and 4 steals in his debut with the Rockets. Jeremy Lin also had 12 points, 4 boards, 8 assists and 4 steals. Lin and Hardin complement each other well, it'll be interesting to see what they can make happen in Houston this year.

    peace

    I have Harden on my fantasy team and i didn't even know that he got traded to Houston...lol

    Him & Lin look like a real problem out there. They play very well together. This is the Harden without having to share the ball with Durant & Westbrook, so he will be dropping 30+ often. With that new 80 million contract you know he has the green light.

    Miami is just an all around problem. There D is still sick, if not sicker and their 3 pt. game will keep LBJ and Wade from having to take so many bumps and bruised thruought the year, keeping them fresh and well rested with an improved bench. You will see them sitting out the latter half of many fourth quarters due to blowouts.

    People here are going crazy because of the postponement of the Knicks & Nets to Sunday, but i think it will be worth the wait. It should be a good one.

    The clippers also look good and i can see them in at least the first round of the playoff's.

    lol - I still think they will make some noise in the west. Somebody has too cause the Lakers look a little lost. Without d. Howard hitting those 15 free throws the other day it would have been a blow out by more than 20 pts.

    Kobe also hit for 3o pts., so where is everyone else? Nash got hurt, but tried to come back in just to hobble around a bit, then had to be taken out again... not a good look!

    & i just realized that tonight it's the Heat vs. Knicks which should be great entertainment for any Miami Heat fan out there. Melo is going to go nuts and try to do it all himself while hogging the ball now with Amari out which will take the rest of the knicks out of the game.

    It's going to be fast break heaven for the Heat. We will see touchdown pass after touchdown pass now that chalmers has joined the realm of the miami quarterbacks...

    The Clips will make a lot of noise but it's always the same. Injuries stop their momentum but their bench is deeper than the Lakers.

    As far as Hardin is concerned, best wishes.

    4 games in. A few stats..

    Harden is leading the league with 35 point per game.. while shooting 53% from the field.. (OKC should be pissed at him for playing possum to get out there)..

    Next leading scorer is 8 points away at 27 ppg (Kobe) on 60% shooting.. followed byd Melo with 26..

    Durant is looking pretty strong.. averaging 23 points, tied for 3rd in the league with 14 rebounds per game and tied for 15th place with 7 assists per contest. His 33% def rebound percentage is a sign that he has decided to take more responsibility for what goes on in the front court.. he is basically 7 feet tall.. and like Dirk, who didn't win anything until he started getting involved down low, Durant is going to have to spend a bit more of his time around the basket in order to get the full success he deserves. It's looking like Kevin Martin is as efficient a scorer as Durant.. and also a consistent free throw shooter. If they can manage to contain machine gun kelly.. aka.. Russell Westbrook.. they might be able to get something done.

    Dwight howard is leading the league in Free throws with 50 attempts in 4 games.. of which he made 27.. looks like hackashaq revisted.​
    Ray allen is tied for 4th in the league with 12 threes.. and leads the league in True Shooting Percentage with 80.1%​
    *True shooting percentage is a measure of shooting efficiency that takes into account field goals, 3-point field goals, and free throws.)​

    true indeed. The clippers start getting banged up right around the all star break thru the rest of the season.

    Harden is a 'free' man with no shackles on this time around. When Durant or westbrook were hurt, Harden would drop 30-40 like it was noting,but with them in his way the green light was taken away. With a new cntract and a new team he'll be looking to prove that he shouldv'e been the man in OKC.

    How did Orlando beat LA?

    Final score 113 to 103. 10 point spread..

    Orlando was 19 of 20 from the line..
    LA was 15-17 from the line.. minus Howard. Howard was 9 of 21 from the line..

    And that right there is the whole game. Hack a Howard works like a charm. 21 free throw attempts
    on only 13 shots. The Lakers will never win anything significant with this kind of performance from Howard. 21 hacks on 13 shots, means he had the ball at least 21 times. He has to be able to score on 12 or 13 or those possessions.. foul or no foul.. then a 9-21 performance from the line becomes a 35 point performance and a win for his team.

    They keep comparing him to Shaq, but Shaq was a killer from the first tip of the first game onward. Howard could be another Olajuwon if he just had some grit to him.. but he's too happy. Somebody needs to kidnap his dog or something.. put some drama in his life.. so we can see some passion on the floor.

    This is what i keep telling people, he smiles and plays around too much. He doesn't take the game seriously or something. Some say he's a beast in the middle now, but this is nothing compared to what he could turn into if they could only find something or someone to piss him off. Kobe would be the perfect candidate, but then if he get's on Dwight, Dwight is also known for turning into a big baby and playing the "i'm injured" role when things don't go his way or he get's criticized by a coach or teamate....

    - He's killing my Free Throw Pct. in my fantasy league.
