Rockets are a fun team to watch, they are still a big piece or 2 away from a Championship.

Litos you are straight up smoking crack if you wouldn't want Melo paird with Harden and D12.....Either you share the same general public perceptions about Melo, don't watch him play, or both.........but respectfully the value of your opinion on basketball-related things goes way down the second you dismiss Melo in favor of Love or Rondo.

Only one other player in the league can score like Melo. ....and if Melo's willingness to share the ball with other stars wasn't proved by how he's thrived in Olympic competition, I don't know what is.

You obviously don't see the well-rounded efforts he gives to the Knicks every night despite the idiocy of Woodson asking him to run ISO every play.......He gets at least 5 hockey assists every night and is averaging over 8reb as a SF/PF. He plays decent defense (all-NBA defense if you put him next to Harden LMAO), and is really an incredibly smart, creative player who has a tireless work ethic.

.....and here's something you may not be used to....he doesn't flop....ever. In fact he probably gets more no-calls than anyone in the league because of it, but that doesn't stop him beasting people down low every chance he gets.

And lastly, he's not leaving New York. So enjoy the hope of Rondo or Love in 2 years, because that's the only chance the Rockets will have at getting over the hump. Cheers.

Heat blew out the Pacers without Wade in a must win game for the Pacers. That is disappointing

Wasn't a must win. Would've been nice to not split the season series though.

If the Pacers win their last two and Miami loses just 1 of its last 3, Pacers still get the #1 seed.

It was pretty much a must win game for the Pacers. They are facing OKC next game and ending with Magic while the Heat has 2 below .500 teams and low seed Wizards.

OKC is at home. And OKC might rest some people during that game.

Not worried about the Magic.

true, but with miami at the 1 and brooklyn at #5 we won't see them if we keep the #1 spot which i don't see why we would loose it, miami got 3 more games to go to bad teams where indy has OKC still who will probably beat the crap out of indiana then miami only has to win 2 of the 3 to keep the 1 spot.

Yeah what can I say. It was a good game in the first half alone. Then we got throttled in the third quarter.

You guys need to enjoy the fact that you're a big market. We made some decent free agent pick-ups over the years but the majority of the rebuilding has been through the draft, which takes a while.

I don't see LeBron taking his talents to the Circle City anytime soon.

Big market? Miami is barely in the top 20, and there's a salary cap.

But the truth is that only 3 Pacers starters were drafted by Indiana (George Paul, Hibbert, Lance Stephenson) ..
And the Heat drafted: Mario Chalmers (starter) , Wade (starter), UD (starter) Norris Cole, Michael Beasley... so there goes that argument... I don't care nor expect people to like the Heat, but most of the things people say about the Heat are non sense....

You're right. I'm sure location didn't factor into Bosh's and LeBron's decision. They'd be just as happy with the night life in Minnesota.

And while there is a salary cap, it's a soft cap, and it doesn't mean a whole lot if you've got money for the luxury tax (I say this generally).

What the hell are you talking about? I wasn't making an argument. I was simply saying that a team like the Pacers isn't going to land big name free agents like the Heat, the Knicks, Lakers, etc.

I was trying to be friendly and complimentary.

And by the way, yes, 3 of the starters (one of them being Paul George, not George Paul) were drafted by the Pacers. And they happen to be our 3 best players.

Can't stand how the NBA is trying so hard to have the Knicks make the playoffs...

Carmelo went to the line 40 times against the raps....

NBA is no more real than the WWE

Makes no sense. I was just about to order my jersey today and was going to ask if you had a preference.

I'll hold out one more day. Beating the Thunder at home tomorrow would be nice.
