There were some huge individual games last night.  Take a look at some box scores to see what LeBron, D-Wade, AI, and Paul Pierce did in their games.  Wow.

And as for Kobe's shooting percentage ... it's really not that low for a perimeter player in today's NBA.

Right, it's not that low.  But it's also not that good.  Rip Hamilton at 50%?  Now THAT is good.  My point is Kobe only averages 34 PPG because he TAKES 27 attempts per game.  And at 43% shooting, he's really not that impressive.  Give Rip Hamilton 27 shots per game, and he'll show you impressive.

It's apples to oranges in this situation.  Rip Hamilton is surrounded by three All-Stars and one budding All-Star on his team.  Kobe is the primary focus of every defense he plays against.  I know people like to say that so-and-so would score just as many points if they took 27 shots a game.  Do you know how hard it is and how much skill it takes to even take that many shots in one game?  Especially when you're being double-teamed almost every time you touch the ball?  That may sound ridiculous, but it's true.  Rip Hamilton is not the type of player that could create 27 shots for himself in a game ... at least not on a regular basis.

i like dwayne wade, but i probably wouldn't swoop in steal him away from the heat.  he seems to really thrive next to shaq much like penny hardaway. 

Well, any perimeter player would thrive playing alongside Shaq, but Wade was doing great things befoe Shaq got to Miami, and he was only a rookie when he was doing it.

Love D. Wade's game..but Kobe still better  8)

Oh, I agree ... but Kobe also has a few years of experience on Wade.  Dwyane can only get better.  Kobe is currently in his prime.

Have I mentioned lately that Dwyane Wade is a god?  Did anyone watch the fourth quarter he dropped on the Pistons today?  Simply awesome.

I saw it on ABC.  He's pretty much the total package.  I don't get the feeling that the Heat are going to seriously contend for the title though, their supporting cast (everyone except Diesel and Flash) was actually much better last year.  I still think the Pistons are going to rule the East, with the Suns or Spurs ruling the West.

I agree.  I don't think the Heat have enough to beat Detroit in a 7-game series.  Though they're the team in the East that seems to give them the most trouble (Detroit can't stop Shaq or Wade), I still don't think they're good enough ... yet.  We'll see what the second half of the season brings.

i would take dirk over wade and lebron because i think he is a more unique player than they are.  he is the kind of guy that causes all kinds of defensive problems for teams and makes scoring easier for all his team mates.

Again ... not to take anything away from Dirk (I love the big German!), but Wade and James cause just as many defensive problems (if not more), and they both set up their teammates well.  Especially LeBron.  That guy's just a freak.  He's 6'8", over 240 lbs., and he's faster up and down the court than just about anyone in the league.  Add the fact that he's one of the top three passers out there, and I know I wouldn't want to try and stop him defensively.
Dirk is a tough cover though.  If you put a four or five man on him, he easily blows right by them.  Put a three on him, and he just shoots over them.  If he was a better passer, there would be no way to stop him.

Someone had to make a Shannon Elizabeth contribution:



Yes ... a Shannon contribution was needed ... and may I say that you made a very fine choice for said contribution.

Kobe has been on the NBA All-Defense 1st or 2nd team five times in his career.  Dirk is carrying a big goose egg in that area.  That's enough for me to determine who the better defensive player is.  Kobe is one of the best on-the-ball defenders in the game today.  And Dirk should average more rebounds and blocked shots per game ... he's nearly seven-feet-tall.  Don't get me wrong ... I love Dirk as a player, and his offensive game is a joy to watch.  I wouldn't call him a liability on the defensive end, but he isn't much of a stopper either.

I think I'd be forced to take Dirk Nowitzki over either Duncan or Wade.  Other than that, agreed.

I think Dirk is a great player, but he isn't quite good enough on the defensive end to warrant being in my top five.

Your list of players that you'd take ahead of Artest got me thinking ..... who are the top-five players in the league?
I see it this way (in no particular order):

Dwyane Wade
Tim Duncan
Kobe Bryant
Kevin Garnett
LeBron James

What does everyone else think?

And now, it seems, the trade is back on again.  What the hell is going on with this wacko?

I really want to do the Marathon again, I just have to find the time.

Same here.  Now that I finally have a Surround Sound system, I need to check out the DTS tracks on these.
