    As long as KD didn't go anywhere near the East I'm ok. Give my Pistons a chance at the conference title even if the Warriors will run the league for the foreseeable future, lol.

    You know, I was listening to Stephen A. Smith stating that while he doesn't have a problem with KD exercising his choice to do what was best for him and his family, he finds it troubling that KD joined the team that beat him in the playoffs. What kind of crap is that? Would it have been a problem if the Warriors had not beat him? This is not the old NBA where franchise players stay their entire careers with one team, and if the owners can choose to trade a player in the best interest of the organization, why can't a player choose to leave that organization in the best interest of himself and/or his family? Furthermore, I find it odd that people find it okay for aging veteran players to latch on to a team with a shot at winning the championship but it's not okay for an aging franchise player to do the same.

    I told a guy something similar this morning. To me, KD with OKC is just like us in our jobs. Sure we have some time in with the company but if a better offer comes along that aligns with our wants/needs there's nothing wrong with jumping on it.

    Reggie Miller broke it down the best.
    When he was playing against the greats like Jordan, Johnson, Bird, etc., he wanted to BEAT those guys. He got validation from beating the players that he viewed as greats. Beating the teams he viewed as great. He couldn't imagine going to play with the same guys who were beating him.

    He acknowledge his critics in saying that he is a great player who never got a ring so he understands WHY K.D did what he did. He just could never bring himself to do it because the feeling of beating those guys would have been more rewarding to him.

    Personally I agree with that. In competition, I've never been a "join them" kind of guy. I want to beat them. The top of the mountain would feel much better then. But then you also run the risk of ending up like Allen Iverson or Reggie Miller. No rings.

    Don't get me wrong. Reggie Miller, Michael Jordan, etcetera are my age, and I understand the thinking of that era, but this is another era altogether, and the thought process of these kids is to win a championship by any means necessary...

    This is true. Team loyalty went out the window a few years ago. Times have changed.

    They definitely have. I think it hurts the sport a little. Think about all the kids who grew up loving a player because of who he was to their team, to their city. It's too bad that things appear to be changing away from that. Kobe may have been the last player we had who was devoted to his team. I guess Lebron came back so there is something to be said about that.

    Kids and one's status in life constantly changes, and I'm not one to hold a celebrity hostage by saying that they must make decisions based on the feelings of their fans. Playing sports is their occupation, and with any occupation, they have the right to choose to be employed elsewhere, especially when it's beneficial to them and their families. Nowadays, it's not uncommon for a 20 year old to have had 10 different jobs already.

    Eh, I see it differently. My job is a little different than going out every night playing for my city. I see what you're saying though. I always admired Kobe because I felt he bled yellow and purple. I think it's dope to see a player give their all to a city and watch that love in return. His last game, to me, was more special because of that. Although I'm not from LA. I thought that was really cool. I'm not saying an athlete has a requirement to play anywhere and I agree they are free to do as they please. But I will always respect a player more when they represent something more than themselves. When they put on that uniform, they are playing for millions. My job...not so much lol.

    5th metatarsal bone fracture confirmed. Typical prognosis is surgery with 8 weeks for full recovery. Was looking forward to seeing how this Sixers team was going to play with these guys. Need a healthy squad running to see the real Joel play with Okafor and Ben. Then will know if Nerlens can be moved and we can see what we can get for him or if Okafor is the one we need to unload. Financially would be impossible to continue to keep everyone, not enough mins to keep everyone happy, NEED A SHOOTER!

    I'm sure they'll be bad enough to draft a shooter. Might as well stay with the youth movement. Says the Bulls fan...

    Russell Westbrook has been prolific this season...2 straight triple doubles! He or Lebron will be the MVP.

    While Russ' numbers look good at first, the efficiency and usage kind of worry me. He's averaging 13 made field goals on 28.7 attempts. That's a lot of shots. While it's not terrible efficiency, it's not great, and I worry about him tiring over the course of the season. It is only the first week though, and I imagine that his shot attempts and his overall numbers will come down.

    I predict he'll be in the 28/8/11 range on the year.

    James Harden's numbers also poke out at me. He's averaging 11.8 assists per game! Still scoring efficiently as well.

    I imagine this year's MVP race is between Russ, Harden, LeBron, and Damian Lillard.

    I can see Dame averaging 30/8/and 8 this year.He is a man on a mission.

    I'm going to predict San Antonio beating the Warriors in the Western Conference finals.

    Lebron will be in the NBA finals for at least the next 3 seasons as long as he's in the east and no major changes take place in the east lol.

    Maybe my Bulls can get back to that level at some point.

    Who I'd like to see succeed is PHI. I mean, you can't get a top 5 pick EVERY offseason and never turn the ship around. lol
