Hahahaaha Lakers defence is garbage. Portland is an exciting young team to watch, I can see the Clippers beating the "lakeshow" next and putting them at 0-3.


Yeah Damian Lillard was amazing in his NBA debut! Also how about James Harden scoring 37 in his Rockets debut?

Boy, what strong showings from Parker (I know it's only one game but still, that finish? :frantic:) and Harden (37 and 45! :frantic: :frantic:)! Good for the Knicks to deliver following Sandy's ravaging as well!

Boy, the Lake Show on the other hand... Nash needs to get with this team stat or they'll be in trouble!

Bargnani sucks big time.

Misses a wide open shot that would've tied the game late in the 4th against the Nets and then plays crap defense on the next two possessions. Does anyone know why JV was benched?

Bargnani isn't the raptors problem, he shot 50%, can't ask for much more, the prob it's that they've got no wing scoring other than DeRozan, Lowry is fracking unbelievable though...

JV got burned in the first quarter by Lopez and got into early foul trouble.. not sure why he wasn't in the 4th though, he wasn't all that bad.

He shot 50% but the guy can't play defense to save his life.

Raptors have huge potential though - loving the addition of Lowry!

His man to man D is fine.. he's just a horrid help defender.

Lowry>>>>>>>>>>Nash.. looks like we got the best of out Nash's decision :D

Not really, when you look at who came out of that draft Bargnani was a solid pick, he is a solid-star(not superstar) NBA player. Also Valanciunas was a great pick, Davis is solid as well, lots of potential for those two to be a solid front court.

Lamarcus is quite better than andrea,i know its hindsight but Raptors would be in quite better shape imo if they had taken him. I agree Valanciunas has a lot of potential though

Oh no doubt, Aldridge is sick.. if you look at the guys that went after LA and Bargnani it's guys like Adam Morrison, Tyrus Thomas, Shelden Williams :sick:

All I meant is it could've been a lot worse :lol:

James Harden has emerged out of the shadows in OKC to be the star player in Houston. He is on a Jeremy Lin hot streak right now.

It's obvious he's out to prove to everyone he is not a 6th man in the sense of the term but a legit all-star who was overshadowed in OKC but now has the chance to be "the guy".

How would he lose it? It couldn't be any worse than how he went out last time. He IS the best coach of all time, no doubt about that.

They won't have trouble scoring with D'Antoni's system, that's for sure. Nash flourished in Mike's pick-and-roll system with Amar'e, and Dwight is as if not more effective down low. If Nate McMillan (rumored to join to help on the defensive side) works effectively with Howard, Metta and Kobe and uses them as the defensive stoppers they are they should improve as well, but it all matters whether they can put it all together in the postseason and get it done with this star-studded squad that will determine whether they've been successful.

The NBA has had some pretty bad games overall. Lot of blowout games and terrible shooting performances by teams.

I think it takes until after Christmas for the players to really find their rhythm and be used to their teammates and their system.
