Tough OT win for the Heat tonight against the Hawks.  Wade filled up the stat sheet again with 37 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocked shots.

Would someone in the Miami area with a slight semblance of basketball skills please help this man?



Thanks.  I appreciate it.

I think the Jazz have the best half court offense in the NBA.  They're fun to watch, enventhough they beat the Lakers tonight.

Can anyone explain to me how the Mavericks, who are up by 30 on the queens right now, started 0-4?

It's the regular season.  It happens.

Neal's wrong.  Terrell Owens started attending Mavericks games and became advisor to the team starting in Game 5.

Here's a question for Neal, how come all 3 of the big men on my fantasy squad (Boris Diaw, Gerald Wallace, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas) can't rebound or block a shot anymore suddenly?

The most horrifying of which is Gerald Wallace who, after blocking 2+ shots a game last year, is averaging 0.3 this season.

Help me Neal, you're my only hope.

EDIT: Not to diss Rasheeeeeeeeed Wallace who has been rebounding and blocking shots like a thief.  He's my 4th big man.  He's fine.

Diaw came into camp fat and out of shape, so he hasn't quite hit his stride yet.  And with Stoudamire back and getting more minutes every game, Diaw may not be as "stat friendly" as he was last year.  Ilgauskas is becoming a bigger and bigger stiff with each passing year.  Yes, his blocks per game this year are down (it doesn't help that he only plays 26 minutes per game) from his career average, but he was never a great shot blocker to begin with ... especially for his size.  I'm not sure what's going on with Wallace.  I know he was fighting injuries early in the season, but all of his numbers are down ... not just his rebounding and shot-blocking.

Pretty much Diaw isn't involved in the pick & roll with Amare back. 

Z is just getting old. 

GW is playing a lot of 4 with Primoz being hurt and Okafor moving to center.  That leaves less time for him to weak side block and play passing lanes.

And he was fouled hard in the first game and hasn't been the same since then.

Just to keep this thread going ... the Draft is tonight, and the NBA announced that they'll be using a new ball for the first time in 35 years come next season.

Whaaaaaaaaa! I want my old ball back.   ::)
