there is nothing worse than that. it's as evil as pop ups.

helluva game against the clips. bismack and mullens held there own against griffin and jordan. came up just short but played em pound for pound.

Deep thoughts about game:
Team's heart and energy was back afterbeing gone for a bit.
We held our own in a real brutal game. Showed the tough part.
The Clippers must have 1-3 guys every play calling for an alley-oop. I don't think we have done one all season.
We had 3-5 fast breaks of 2 or 3 on 1 and either missed or lost ball etc.. They dunked everyone they got.

Positives:
Kemba again looked really really good for only 2nd year. With a good supporting team he could be huge.
Biz looked mean and nasty. Played really well in general. Sure BG scored but he was going to. He didn't get many rebounds though at all. Biz held his own well.
Hendo and others just kept coming at them. Toughness and take no BS was all over the team tonight.
Mullens was solid after 1st half where he got eaten alive.

Negatives:
Ref's this year have just been horrible.
Sessions and Gordon??? The team look DOA when they entered end of 3rd qtr. Both teams looked horrible was just weird.

A draft pick and some luck and attracting a high quality low post man FA would improve team to playoff standards.

Be glad we are not in the west. That conf looks amazing this year at least 8 deep.

i don't think the west is that impressive at all. okc is the best of em and then you have san antonio, memphis and clippers but i think that stacks up pretty even with miami, new york, brooklyn, boston.

then you have......denver? that igoudala trade was horrible for them. houston isn't legit yet. timberwolves, golden state, utah, aren't scaring anybody. dallas maaaaaaaaaaay be something with dirk, but i don't know. the lakers are lost. portland has no bench. the other 3 teams are rebuilding.

east has philly who is a title contender if bynum comes back and a playoff team and a 1st round upset threat without. chicago depends on how rose comes back, but title contender if he's 100%. atlanta and milwaukee are solid but not scaring anybody. indiana is like dallas. maybe something with granger coming back.

conferences are very very equal at the top but the east has wayyyy more teams rebuilding at the bottom. washington, us, toronto, cleveland, detroit, orlando. phoenix is better than all 6 of those teams. new orleans with gordon might be.

i don't think we need much of anything. another big to replace diop/haywood and rotate with biz and mullens. that's about all we need and time. and better fans.
