Season begins today
Ironic that the logo for the Negro Basketball Association is a whiteboy honkey cracka, Jerry West. Nowadays the great Jerry West would have at least a 4-year stay on the bottom of a roster, if he were even signed at all.
Very true. He would be a "defensive liability."
NBA Tips Off 2013-14 Season With Record International Player Presence
-- Record 92 players from 39 countries and territories represented --
-- San Antonio Spurs with Most-Ever International Players at 10, France has Strongest Representation with 10 Players --
I was gone alot of the last few days but I did see some of the Suns vs Blazers and Twolves vs Magic games. The Suns game was a pleasant suprise. Miles Plumlee was named a starter and he is only in his 2nd season. The kid can jump out of the gym. He had 18 points and 15 rebounds. He was also blocking shots and changing many others. The kid has amazing talent and he will only get better from here. Goran Dragic also had a great game with 26 points to lead all scorers as the Suns blew out the Blazers. Alex Lin also played a little of the bench for Phoenix. They will bring him along slowly but he will eventually be a solid player and he is 7'1!
The Minnesota Timberwolves are off to a good start. They beat the Magic in overtime. Kevin Love had 31 points and 17 rebounds. He is back and he will be unstoppable this year. Pekovic, Rubio and Barrera all played good. Sved was quiet in this game but he will be fine. The Twolves have their next game on Friday Night. This will be the year they finally make the playoffs.
Miles Plumlee was impressive for sure, I still think his brother Mason has more talent then him though. I'm looking forward to watching him play, but he probably won't play much, if at all, this season.
As for Kevin Love, he has already shown himself to be one of the most clutch players in the NBA. I've seen him knock down game winning shots on many occasions, both in the NBA, and at UCLA. Not to mention he is one of the best rebounders I've seen in some time. He had a 30 rebound game a few years back. If he was black, he'd be talked about as one of the best big men in the league along with Dwight Howard.
Yea, nice to see the TWolves win but it was a bit concerning they blew a 4th quarter lead to a bad Magic team at home. Anyway, a win's a win and Vucevic is Orlando's best player.
If I have some free time, maybe tomorrow, I'll compile a "Caste Football NBA Guide" like I did last year. Of course, it will detail for the casual fan which teams to support and which teams to avoid like the black plague (pun intended).
I'm still hoping for a Jimmer Fredette trade. The Kings barely won in their opener last night and that is the 2nd or 3rd game in a row where they sst Fredette the whole game. Total Bull Sh**. Jimmer has proved he should be a starter and could be a potential all star. The Kings sucked last year and they will continue to be a below average team at best. If they don't pick up his option by the end of today, he is going to be a free agent at the end of the season. This would be great but I would rather see a team go get him right now.
They say sports is all about money. Not true. Ask Utah why they didnt' draft Jimmer and still won't trade for him despite the Utah Fans demanding it. The Jazz suck but they don't want a hometown hero who would sell out the place. It's the same situation in the nfl with Tebow and the Jacksonville Jaguars. These owners are pathetic. Two of the best guys who would play for next to nothing and the teams just ignore them. I hope all of these teams rot in a bottomless pit and continue to lose for a very long time.
Back to Kevin Love. He is a legitimate top 3 player in the whole nba. He can rebound better than anyone on the planet along with scoring 25 to 30 points a night. He is also a great shooter and passer. They don't come any better than Love. He has had so many 20/20 games and even a 30/30 games. For those who don't know what that means. It stands for 30 points and 30 rebounds. Neither Kobe, Lebron or Durant have ever done that! Love is in a class by himself. He can get some more attention in the mvp race if the Twolves can start making the playoffs and make a push toward the finals. It starts this year. Build a foundation and go from there.
Spencer Hawes dropped 24 as Sixers upset Heat. The Bucks came back from 25 down at half to make it a game. Rookie Nate Wolters was thrown into the fire early as Ridnour did not play due to sore back and Knight tweaked his hammy early. The rookie responded well with 9points and 4 assists. Not his best offensive output but he stepped up as a floor general when his team needed him on the biggest stage in sports,Madison Square Garden. Zaza Pachulia also had a nice game with 13points and 11 boards!!
Yes cdb15, I was going to mention Hawes also. He had 16 points and 14 rebounds this evening. He's avg. 16 points and 9.4 rebounds thus far. Let's hope he can have David Lee type numbers this year and become more well known!
Chandler Parsons had 24 points...12 rebounds & 6 assist in the Rockets 104-93 win...now 3-0
Spencer Hawes had 18 pts...11 reb & 3 blocks...as the 76ers beat the Bulls
Dirk Nowitski had 24 pts as the Mavs beat the Grizzlies...
dismissed by all the "experts" as yet another overachieving, blue collar, gym rat whose game didn't translate to the next level, point guard Nate Wolters continues to disappoint. them, that is.
in his second NBA game Wolters came off the bench and sparked a 22-point comeback, including a 10-0 run to close out the game, and helped lead Milwaukee to its first win of the season. Wolters finished with 14 points and 6 assists.
also off the bench, Zaza Pachulia was a key factor in the win. the physical center scored a game-high 20, while also dishing out 4 assists and knocking down all 10 of his free throw attempts.
some post-game snippets:
please pardon the double post, but i wanted to add a tidbit about Wolters.
in the three recent games to open the season (with one start), he's averaged 31.7 minutes of play, 10.0 points-per-game, 2.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists. and despite being the primary ball handler, he's averaging only 1.3 turnovers. not a bad start to a career that, according to the so-called talent evaluators, should never even have begun.
keep up the good work, Wolters!
Who are the teams to root for right now? I haven't been paying enough attention to any team besides Minnesota lol. Sounds like Phoenix is one, any others?
Some BIG TIME stats tonight!
Nikola Vucevic...30 points...21 rebounds!!
Gordon Hayward...28 pts...5 assist
Kevin Love 25 pts...16 reb
David Lee 22 pts...15 reb
Spencer Hawes 23 pts...13 reb

[h=2]Scores for November 6, 2013[/h]Auto Update: On
November 3, 2013 - November 9, 2013
I've provided a fairly in-depth break down of which teams to support. Check it out.
The Suns won tonight behind 18 points and 11 rebounds from Plumlee. Love scored 32 points and 15 rebounds in a win for the Timberwolves.
Kevin Love is the new Larry Bird. Too bad it's 30 years later.
Tyler Hansbrough, leading scorer for Toronto coming off the bench with 23 points 7 rebounds while defeating the Utah Jazz.
Gordon Hayward led Utah with 24/7/4.
Two top notch college players forced to serve racial apprenticeships.
J.J. Redick leading scorer for the Clippers with 22 points 5 rebounds and 2 assists as they defeat the Rockets.
Chandler Parsons led the Rockets with 23 points 8 rebounds and 3 assists
Golden States David Lee kind of an off night 13 points 9 rebounds.
In tonights Timberwolves / Lakers tilt, a total of 7 whites started the game
T-Wolves: Love, Rubio, Pek
Lakers: Nash, Blake, Gasol, and Kaman
The T-wolves are tearing it up tonight, leading 82-53 midway through the 3rd with Love already with 20 points and 12 rebounds
IF the wolves stay healthy it looks like they could be a solid 4-5 seed out west
It'll be interesting to see how the 'wolves do against better teams. The Clippers tonight have a pretty mediocre record thus far but are supposedly one of the teams to beat.
Shocking that the Lakers started more whites than Minnesota.
Saw that Ricky Rubio had a triple double. Very good news.
Jason Smith led the Pelicans in points in a losing effort.
