What the heck has happened to Dwyane Wade??? I use to like him but now he seems like a *****. Slapping Kobe in the All-Star game and then saying this....I don't foul out much," Wade said. "I guess I had the red flag on me today, but you're not going to get me to comment on the referees. I like my money in my pocket."

the one thing I do like about this season is that to me there isn't a clear favorite. Bulls are great but they need a 2nd scorer, Miami is great but they can be beat w/ size, Thunder are great but they haven't proven anything in playoffs, Dallas isn't the same team as last year, Lakers are a pg away from being great again.

Kinda off topic but thought this was funny...Larry Bird and Magic Johnson

"One time, I was hurt. I was on the bench. Larry comes by during warm-ups and says, "Don't worry, Earvin. I'm gonna put on a show for you." I think he scored 40 that night and I think he only missed two shots. He'd get that walk goin' and that blond hair floppin' and you knew you were gonna be in for a long, long night.

--Magic Johnson

Damn the Magic are offering a lot of power to Howard.

Knicks are in trouble. Melo or the coach might be out soon. I don't think it's all Melo's fault. The team isn't play good D.

No doubt Melo is a great player but probably not for the Knicks. You mentioned bad defense, but Knicks allow less points with Melo on the bench. They also score more per possession with him on the bench. He wants 20+ attempts per game and on games he got 20+, Knicks are 2-11. He admits he's not comfortable with an offense where he's not a primary ball handler, which is a problem for a team that already has two decent point guards who's job description is to be primary ball handlers.

I know stats aren't everything, but you can tell that even the players are getting tired of Melo's constant call for isolation that breaks up plays. The Knicks were playing beautiful basketball when Melo was injured with everyone playing with total unselfishness but that all changed with Melo back in the lineup.

Like I said before it was going to be hard to keep all the Knicks happy. I think the issue is between the coach and Melo. It's to bad that they can't see eye to eye. I watched them play the Bulls and saw how frustrated Melo was when Lee didn't get him the ball down low when he had a mismatch. I understand Melo is a ball stopper and throws up some bad shots but maybe if the team came together and talked to him things might be better. As far as defense well Stodamire has always been poor at that and the coach is a offensive coach.

Another bush league play by the Lakers. Last year it was Bynum. Lakers fans cheered when Artest got tossed and Kobe/Gasol kind of back up Artest. Magic was such a class act.

Ron Artest got a 7 game suspension. NBA needs a 3 strike rule and your out. Lol

I agree. Arrest should have a battery charge along with the suspension.
