NBA 2011-2012 Season Thread

What better way to start off the season than Ron Artest news or should I say Metta World Peace......Ron Artest has filed to legally change his name to Metta World Peace and it doesn't seem like its a joke either

NBA Draft is just around the corner!!!

Figures it's a weak draft when my Cavs get the #1 and #4 pick. I wonder where Howard ends up?

Lakers.

For sure someplace in the Western Conference.

DARN nice to see him with the Bulls!

Draft was okay... lot of good young talent. Hell, when MJ got drafted, he was not #1... and look what happened. Heck, kobe went between 10 and 15... lol

I don't listen to those talking heads when it comes to draft time. See how the cavs make it work. They are rebuilding... it would be nice if the owner's prediction came true and they earned a title before the Heat. lol

My Cavs are doing better then what I thought. They almost have half as many wins of all of last year. lol Glad they got Kyrie Irving. He's going to be great. They have some good young talent.

Miami came out strong but as of late not so good without Wade.

Bulls look good...

Still wondering where Howard ends up? When he bolts Orlando will be like the Cavs when Lebron left.

The Cavs beat the Clippers last night and the Mavs last week. Blake and CP3 acted like *****es... Blake said "We gave the game away". No bud you just got beat... I know the Clippers were probably upset since they lost Billups for the year but the Cavs didn't have Kyrie or Parker.

Have you seen any of the highlights yet of the Knicks guard Jeremy Lin? He already is a favorite in NY. I want to see if he is for real and this will last.

Yes, I've seen Lin play and he has been very impressive so far. Kinda crazy how the kid without a contract comes in and helps the team as much as he has. I think the Knicks schedule lately has helped too though. That was funny last night when Mike D'Antoni was asked what are they going to do with Carmelo and Stodemire when they come back.

Stat is not gonna be a problem: He flourished with Nash. I think he'll fit right in the same run-and-gun offense ran by the same coach with a new PG that's looking a lot like Nash (though Mr. ShaoLin is too modest to admit it).

On the other hand, Melo is anyone's guess. I loved how he was cheering for Lin and supported him from the bench. In interviews, he says Lin is "a dream come true" for him and his team and will free him up to do what he does best as a small forward and not worry about trying to do some of the point guard stuff. And he's one of the best catch/shoot or catch/coupledribble/shooters out there in mid range. However, he's been a ball hog and often tried to create stuff even if it's not there instead of passing on. Hopefully, he'll be true to his words and adopt but we'll see.

I for one am firmly on the LinWagon. I was visiting my family and friends in NYC last weekend and my dad (season ticket holder) gave me his seat to the Friday's game in MSG even though he is a diehard Nicks fan and even after I told him I was already on the LinWagon. He just wanted me to see with my own eyes. I can only say that the atmosphere of the stadium was like nothing I've ever experienced in my lifetime. The fans roared like I've never heard them before and all Lin did was Lin Lin Lin.
