    Me too, but I think they could make the Clippers sweat. Game 6/7 is usually when the Houston choke job happens though.....I just think they're as best of a bet as anyone outside of the Lakers of challenging the Clippers. Jazz are pretenders-8-13 vs teams over .500.

    And Russell fits right in with that thought process. Depending how much both Towns and Russell are able to fool themselves into thinking they want to win - their friendship could go to hell in Minny. They really should just relax, make their money and accept their L's. They don't want the smoke - well - Russell does, but not that smoke.

    Now, that they've given up their size, I'd expect HOU to have their hands full with Gobert/Jazz.

    Reg-season records can create an illusion at times. Harden struggled mightily against the Jazz in the playoffs last year. Even more than his usual playoff struggles. Harden's just well aware that the Jazz have that big MF in the lane and that nothing's easy in there. Add in the fact that refs aren't calling a bunch of dumb fouls and helping him in that area - don't be surprised if the Jazz put a foot in their ass this time.

    League sources have long believed that Darren Collison's preference is the Lakers over the Clippers. With Isaiah Thomas now going to the Clippers, it's reasonable to expect the Lakers to eventually sign Collison.







    Would expect Troy Daniels to get waived....unless Rondo bitches about his diminishing role - then he goes. I'd expect Rondo to play it cool, though.

    Never been a big Gobert fan, but we shall see....I look at the NBA and see 3 true title contenders: Clips, Lakers, and Bucks.

    Not a big Gobert fan either, but he made Harden mind his manners in that series. And now they have Westbrook - who can't shoot worth a damn - and so to try and make up for his inability to shoot, they've gone small @ the 4 and 5 with guys that can shoot. But they're still gonna have Westbrook's guy crowding the lane and sending him to Gobert if he dives to the basket.

    HOU is so small defensively, at this point, I could actually see them struggling to contain a slasher like Clarkson. FWIW, Clarkson's been damn good off the Jazz bench since being traded there earlier in the season

    Never know what could be the hold up with Collison. A different guy. Could be the usual - wanting to clear up his role with the team before joining, or something else entirely that has nothing to do with basketball

    Paul Pierce arguing that he doesn't see how Collison would help the Lakers because they already have Rondo...








    Marking the 3rd time Pierce has done this stupid shit. Somebody on that show hates him.

    LeBron = 18 points on 19 shots
    Kuzma = 4 points on 8 shots
    Rondo = 2 points on 5 shots
    Trash x 3

    And Darren Collison was actually at this game, in the crowd watching Westbrook kill LAL

    Darren Collison is sitting with Jeanie Buss and her friends at this game. They just showed him on the video board and the crowd cheered.

    Dave McMenamin@mcten
    Darren Collison on his night at Staples Center: "Just watching the game. Ain't nothing to it. Got the best seats in the house."

    That was an annoying L....LeBron taking 8 3s when the Rockets have nobody inside. Stupid.

    Figured that would be the case after he was raining threes against the Spurs.

    article said it had nothing to do with with his personality or the way he acted. Just a bad positional fit and he didn't play defense.

    Collison will make his decision next week. Kobe's memorial will be on 2-24 @ Staples..well done. Still hard to believe, but well done.

    Kuz thinks it's hard to go from 32 minutes a game to 25 minutes a night. If he's not careful, he's gonna go from 25 minutes a game to 5 minutes a game when Cousins comes back. Could easily see AD picking up half the minutes that Kuz plays @ SF and Cousins taking those PF minutes. AD's certainly good enough to do it and they could deem Cousins a more trustworthy play in the playoffs. Kuz better start putting together some consistency
