I trust Zeke as much the CBA.
I trust Zeke as much as Larry Bird.
I trust Zeke as much as I trust Kobe Bryant with a nineteen
year old white woman.
The only thing I could trust Zeke to do is, finish his plate
when he goes to the Red Lobster. :D

Fence, for the record, ZEKE traded Howard Eisley for Stephon Marbury. I realize Mitch the bit#% did really well in what he got in return for O'Neal. BUT O'Neal is the most dominating force in the game and has been for the last 10 years. Think about it Eisley for Marbury. THAT is some sweet talking. THE only knock I have on Zeke is when Detroit traded him to NY at the end of his career, WHY not take NY and win another ring? OTHER than to only ever wear a Piston Uniform, and I can somewhat see that. Mike didn't look right in the Wizzy's uni, or Ewing in the Sonics Jersey or Hakeem in the Raptors mess. I think some guys SHOULD stay with one squad NO matter what.
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

I understand it's JUST the Pre-Season but New Jersey better get used to having their asses handed to them by the Knicks. JUST like it used to.  8) Eh, Jason Kidd, quit being a sissy and GO to practice. NOT even A.I. is above practice. WE all know this.





HE sorta looks like Zeke but I think he's going to perhaps put us over the top, WHAT a beautiful picture!

With up the upcoming season at hand.

As much as I love the Lakers, I think San Antonio is the team to beat in the west. With the addition of Brent Barry, San Antonio
should be deep enough to take it all this year.

I liked what I saw out of Butler and Grant the other night.
And Brian Cook looks to be coming along as well.
The Lakers should make the playoffs as a lower half seed.
Provided that they stay healthy and Odom finds his way.

Houston looks like they could have a fun team to watch.
Don't expect too much, since they don't play D.

Garnett is still the unstoppable force. Pencil him in for another
MVP trophy. Don't be surprised if Carmello Anthony (the pot head)
gets considerations as well. This kids a winner.

Detroit still looks like the big beast of the east.

I don't care what the critics say, Miami isn't as good as  they claim. They got Shaq and Wade. Other than that, they got a
lost Eddie Jones and a bunch of other guys.
Miami will make a semi final exit compliments of Detoit or Indiana,
who are real contenders.

Lastly, if Zeke can pull one more rabbit out of his ass..I mean out
of his hat. Like aquire a big man, they may have a shot at going
deep into the playoffs.

IT is going to be so nice having one of the finest three guard rotations in the NBA, I'm looking forward to the season! TO whip the Mavs asses like that, I KNOW it's preseason but I just can't wait until the real thing starts. EH, WHAT happend to Dampier???  ;) I TOLD YOU guys he was a stiff, I'm glad we didn't get him. I'd rather have Kurt Thomas as our starting center, at least he has a pair and performs in more than just contract year.

The Lakers looked good tuesday night against Denver.
Which was no surprise since they were at home.

However the looked terrible playing Utah last night.
I'll give credit to Utah. Kerilienko and Co were full of energy.
They held the Lakers without a field goal for the first seven minutes of the first quarter.

I thnk this will be the Lakers pattern this year.
They will look good one game and tank the next.

Your not gonna see me post anything negative about the
Big Aristotle.

He dominated the pine more than the court, since he only played
21 minutes.

The Heat will be a top team in that weak division, but Shaq
doesn't have enough help, to get them past Detroit or Indiana.

I'm just glad they moved his big ass outta the Atlantic Division! My poor Knickies couldn't hang with KG and the crew, Sprewell is a punk and every day that passes I'm glad we traded him. Crawford and Marbury looked great, I'm excited about Mike Sweetney and Trevor Ariza too. Ariza had a dunk that was nominated for a Sportcenter TOP 10 Plays, THE last time I saw a Knick on that was when Kobe had 44 in the Garden and was dunking all over Mr. I can't feed my Family on 9 million a year Sprewell!  :)

WHAT does SI really know how to do besides stir s**t up? Remember how they destroyed John Rockers career? SURE he shouldn't have said those things and I don't condone it but THEY should have had enough wit NOT to print it. TOTALLY ruined his career! SURE they have the highest payroll in the league, AT least they are trying to win. IF they were cheap bastards like the McCaskeys (Bears) or Tribune Co. (Cubs), I would have something to be pissed about. I'm happy with the team we have now besides the void at the center postition which for years was the only one we really had covered. Ironic eh? GOOOD Luck to SHOW-BE and the Lake show Fence, You're gonna need it!

Spice:

I happen to like SI. Who cares about Rocker, he was overated anyway.

The difference between the Lakers and Knicks is that the Lakers are taking are year off to get better.  They see that there two voids to fill one at power forward and one at point guard. When the situatin is right they are going to trade one of their many small forward to improve themselves, but they're not going to make a move in haste.

The Knicks and Zeke are trying too hard to get better now. They
are so worried about putting asses in the seats that they are not keeping their eye on the big picture. My opinion is for them to take a year or two off, and dump some salaries like Anderson, Hardaway and Houston. If they are a high lottery team next year, so what. Maybe they can draft a quality big man like Orlando did with Howard. Or at least free up some dought to aqcuire a big man. Shaq will be back on the market the year after next.
I know you like Starbury. He is a great player. Hell, I wouldn't mind having him on my team. But as a small guard he has his limitations. But if you team him with a quality big man, this dude
is invaluable.

One last thing, you can dog Kid Skills (Kobe) all you want.
But think about this. If you had the final shot in the game who would you have your money on to make the winning shot?
Better yet, if the opposing team had the winning shot and say it
was McGrady or Carter taking the shot which of the two would
be better suited to stop them?

I say put Trevor Arizas hand in his face, he may have problems. All honest the guy is all ball, the legal stuff aside. I just lost so much respect for him after the whole Colorado debacle. We just got rid of Shandon Anderson tonight so hopefully that is a step in the right direction. THO I hear they want Eddie Robinson? WTF? WHY they just got rid of Anderson's broke ass!

I still say we got the best guard rotation in the league with a healthy Allan Houston. We'll get there. In the East it is so up in the air. GOOD luck out there with Timmy D, KG and the rest of the monsters, GOOD luck with K-Mart SO glad he's out there now!!! hehehe

That's what this team is going to do all year.

They are going to blow out the weak teams ans get blown out by the strong ones.

But as stated before. They are in the rebuilding process.

Now don't going losing to the Clippers tonight.  :)

Starbury was 3 ribbes shy of a Triple double, Crawford, hell they all played pretty good. I'm hoping to come outta this road trip at 500. I remember when it was a joke to go thru Texas, NOW it's a frikken nightmare.

but Shaq
doesn't have enough help, to get them past Detroit or Indiana.

I so don't agree with you. SHAQ vs. Jermaine O'Neal? Kaman. Shaq and Wade vs. Ben Wallace and Rip? I'll take Shaq. THEY have enough to win in the east. ALL HONEST, I like NYK chances. They would have to do the same thing as the Pistons did, and run his big ass to death. I'm going on the presumption we're making the playoffs, but if Zeke keeps adding the Chicago Bulls EX Players, WE WON'T! Eddie Robinson? I'm all about reclaimation projects but why give the bum all of our mid-level exception? We have a log-jam at the 3 with Tim Thomas, Ariza and Hardaway. WE'LL see it's gonna be one helluva year in Basketball.

HO! BUT wait, there IS a God!

It's okay. You don't have to agree with me about Shaq and THE
Heat. But their last two losses were to stronger teams the Mavs and the Spurs enough said.

It looks like Robinson isn't going to the Knicks after all. I also agree
that it would have been the wrong move. Especially guys getting
ready to come off the injured list.

I listened to the first half of the Laker game on the way home last night. While the paper bashed the benched for poor support, I
blame thier transition defense play. Brian Grant scored 13 points off the benched while the others were goose egged. But the other (4) role players only took 8 shots total. Even if they make half they still lose. From what I could hear, they were giving up way to many fast break points by not going back on defense after missing shots.  

Congrads on beating the Clips!

Couple of thanks you's I gotta drop, FIRST to John Paxon of the Bulls for being such a dumb ass to not wanna resign Jamal Crawford! Don't the Bulls need 18+ a game? LOL

I'd also like to thank Jamal for sticking that 3-ball in Jeff Van Gundy's eye last night. T-Mac is a sucka and NOTHING feels better than to beat the guy who QUIT on us and then goes around talking s**t! GREAT WIN and hopefully our first of many on the road!!!  ;D

Anyone see that brawl in the Pistons-Lakers game last night????  Got to see pics of it this morning and read the recap of the whole thing.  A few of the Pacers, including Artest, actuall went into the stands to duke it out with fans.   Looks like the problem of professional athletes getting out of control continues to escalate!  When will this all stop??  IMHO, these people aren't gods who deserve special treatment, but rather people who are getting paid WAY TOO MUCH to play a GAME.

Now granted, fans have the responsibility to act mature and respectable, but it is not a fair match up to pit them up against pro athletes.

Wayne, it wasn't the Pistons/Lakers game it was the Pacers/Pistons game.  Here's the story...

Pacers-Pistons Brawl a Low Moment for NBA
By LARRY LAGE, AP Sports Writer

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Players and fans exchanged punches in the stands in one of the worst NBA brawls ever, leaving several people injured and prompting a police investigation.

Indiana's Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson charged into the stands and fought with fans in the final minute of their game against the Detroit Pistons (news) on Friday night, and the brawl forced an early end to the Pacers' 97-82 win.

"I felt like I was fighting for my life out there," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "I'm sorry the game had to end this way."

Officials stopped the game with 45.9 seconds remaining after pushing and shoving between the teams spilled into the stands once fans got involved by throwing things at the players near the scorer's table.

"There's no place in the game for what went on with this incident," said Joe Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations.

After several minutes of players fighting with fans in the stands, a chair, beer, ice and popcorn were thrown at the Pacers as they made their way to the locker room. About a half-dozen people were treated for injuries at the arena in suburban Detroit, one was taken to a hospital by ambulance and another sought treatment, police said Saturday.

"It's the ugliest thing I've seen as a coach or player," said Detroit's Larry Brown, who started coaching in 1972 after his playing career ended.

About three hours after the startling finish, Auburn Hills police walked out of a television trailer with videotapes gathered from various media outlets. Officers interviewed witnesses and planned to talk to the players involved in the melee.

"We'll put it all together, take it to the Oakland County Prosecutors Office and have them review it and they'll decide if there are any charges," Auburn Hills Deputy Chief Jim Mynsberge said. "I hope we can do it before Thanksgiving."

Police would not comment on who might be charged.

It all started when Detroit's Ben Wallace went in for a layup and was fouled hard by Artest from behind. After being fouled, Wallace wheeled around and pushed Artest in the face. The benches emptied and punches were thrown.

As the players continued shoving each other near center court and coaches tried to restore order, Artest sprawled out on his back on the scorer's table, looking relaxed.

Just when it appeared tempers had died down, Artest was struck by a cup thrown from the stands and jumped up and charged into the stands, throwing punches as he climbed over seats.

"He was on top of me, pummeling me," fan Mike Ryan of Clarkston said. "He asked me, `Did you do it?' I said, `No, man. No!'"

Jackson joined Artest in the melee and threw punches at fans, who punched back at them.

Security personnel and ushers tried to break it up. Former Pistons player Rick Mahorn, who was seated courtside as a Detroit radio analyst, tried to stop the brawl in the stands. Detroit's Rasheed Wallace and Indiana's David Harrison were also in or near the stands trying to break up the fights.

Later, a man in a Pistons jersey approached Artest on the court, shouting at him. Artest punched him in the face, knocking him to the floor. Teammate Jermaine O'Neal stepped in and punched another man who joined the scrum.

"The NBA is withholding comment until it can review the incident," NBA spokesman Tim Frank said.

Players from both teams left the arena without comment.

Quentin Richardson of the Phoenix Suns (news) watched the brawl on television.

"I have never seen a fight like that in a game since I was in high school," he said. "Man, there are going to be some lawsuits. You don't think some of those fans aren't going to want some NBA money?"

Police prevented reporters from crossing the loading dock to get to Indiana's locker room or the area where the Pacers' bus was located.

"I'm just embarrassed for our league and disappointed for our young people to see that," Brown said.

Before the contest was stopped, Artest had quite a game and the Pacers were dominating the defending NBA champions in their first meeting since the Eastern Conference finals.

Artest has been involved in some bizarre situations and has been suspended several times by the NBA.

Earlier this month, he was benched for two games for asking Carlisle for time off because of a busy schedule that included promoting a soon-to-be released rap album.

Artest also destroyed TV monitors at Madison Square Garden two years ago and missed the team flight to Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals at Detroit last season.
