"Scott succeeded in branding Smith a malcontent, a cancer, a cautionary tale about too much, too sin."

Great Freudian slip.

JR and Birdman wanting to stick it to Scott and the Hornets was honestly the only thing I could think about while watching that game last night. Even though Chauncey and Melo were as cooly efficient and dominant as ever.
Is it possible that these Nuggets are actually the '07 Warriors but a little more grown up?
As in, "they got a job, a haircut and stopped smoking weed everyday"?

I usually try to phrase things a little more finely around here, but what the hell is happening with Chicago? (And SA, though that's at least happening on the road against a healthy team.)

the nuggets really are a group of malcontents and castoffs. billups is the grandmaster of them all. when will renaldo balkman get it going with these guys? the fact that he lurks on the bench as a potential playoff character is very intriguing.

christopher, great warriors analogy and real-life description.

when can we get a post on jose juan barea? does it get more FD than a 5'8" puerto rican point guard who plays like a more reckless version of the young steve nash?

WV: payles, soso. Here? In Miami?

And about that picture with that headline: Life of Pi.

Chicago looked like they had the weight of the future of hip-hop on their shoulders.

are the uniform/color similarities between denver and NO messing with anyone else? especially since we're dealing players who have switched teams?

It looks like an intrasquad scrimmage and the Hornets are the bench players.

Not trying to be a dick, but I don't really see any resemblance between the current Nuggets and the sanctified Warriors other than the fact they both had some interesting players. Boomdizz and Billups couldn't be any more different at the point. Melo is (or at least has been until this season) one of the most talked about, perhaps even overhyped, players in the NBA, something absent from the 07 warriors, a group of men with no past. These Nuggest start Dahnty Damn Jones. Had he started for those Warriors, these Nuggets wouldn't even exist because that collision of matter and anti-matter would've destroyed all things.

Maybe I can see Birdman as Matt Barnes, but only from a narrative, after-the-fact standpoint.

And dizzle: Yeah, from a hue standpoint this is a terrible series. Makes me think of powder-puff.

I love hyperbole as much as the next man El Miz. I am a homer, and rep my man Glenn Davis as a FreeDarko type guy. But I didn't call him Tim Duncan. More reckless than a young Steve Nash...that is just silly.

What about his play says anything but I am an undersized point guard who plays well once in a while. This kid is Earl Boynkins with humility. And that is plenty.

Beth,
as the guy who asked for more Mavs.
Your points about Dallas' current lineup being 'Dallas' through and through was apt. The difference is that this team is winning during the regular season. 9 straight seasons with 50+ wins.


The 'San Antonio lite' idea is like calling Canada 'America Lite'. A comparison that Steve Nash, or even... say... Alanis Morrisette would object to.

Thanks for the Mavs talk nonetheless.

W2, well said. earl boykins with humility is right on the $$$.
