How old is Manu again
All three centers on the Lakers are injured. Gasol has a concussion, out indefinitely. Hill has a hip injury, out indefinitely. Howard tore the labrum in his shoulder, out indefinitely (at least a week or two).

Scott Skiles reportedly out as Bucks coach. This is despite the team being the 7th seed right now at .500 with a completely shit roster. Makes sense right? No one expected the Bucks to be better than they are right now.
Im officially starting to really worry about the Mavericks. Dirk is back, not his 100% self but hes there and they are still losing and losing and losing. This hole is getting steep and Im beginning to question whether they can dig themselves out. This would be the first year they didnt make the playoffs since Dirk's rookie season I believe, talk about a long stretch.

Rudy Gay being shopped to the Suns in a deal that may return Dudley and a 1st round pick. Memphis is desperate to get under the tax line.

Dont look now but lately Carlos Boozer has actually been somewhat living up to his contract the past 5 games. Averaging 23.2 points and 12 rebounds while actually giving a solid effort on defense. Its a fricking miracle.
The Kings relocation plan to Virginia Beach fell apart last week. Rumor has it that the Maloofs sold the team this morning possibly to Seattle businessman Chris Hansen.
Harden tied the Rockets franchise record last night with his 13th straight 25+ point game, tying Moses Malone. How does Dream not have that record?

Kobe set the record last night for most missed field goals in NBA history, breaking Hondo's old school record of 15,295.

There was a lot of opposition to the stadium deal among the councilmen here. They didn't want the city to get stuck with so much of the bill, which is smart.
So we agree that the Lakers just aren't a good team this year, right? This isn't a case of them just needing to get used to each other any more. I just don't see how it works. Dwight Howard looks done, and he can't stay healthy anyway. This team looks like the disorganized mess that some pessimists predicted the Heat would be when that team was first constructed. I don't think they're even a playoff team.
I should clarify about Howard. He'll be a good center for another few more years because the league has a serious lack of quality bigs. I don't know that he looks like a top 10 player. Maybe he just wasn't 100% healthy yet. I think his numbers are solid still, he just doesn't look as good on the floor. I can't really place what it is.
On a side note - how the hell do the Wizards manage to beat both Miami and OKC so far this season? Worst team in the league and yet still manage wins against last year's conference champs. Just seems odd.
Maloofs officially in talks with the Hansen led group to sell the Kings almost certainly resulting in a relocation to Seattle when the arena is done.
Anyone else besides me totally rooting for the Seattle Sea Otters?
Man I am super pumped for the return of basketball to Seattle, the city I will eventually move to. Now they just need an NHL team also.
Kevin Love out 8-10 weeks after hand surgery. SUPER. I blame myself. I buy a Kevin Love jersey, the only basketball jersey I own, and he gets fucking hurt like three days later and is more than likely going to be out when the Wolves come to Detroit in March. BAH
Also, irony thy name is Clay Bennett. Bennett you may remember was the mother fucker who stole the Sonics and moved them to OKC. He is now the head of the relocation committee who will decide if the relocation to Seattle happens.
Present relocation plan is to play in the Key next year and the following year. The new arena should be ready for the start of the 2015-16 season.

Heres a vid of some of Mutumbo's best blocks. Every single one of them either goes straight down or back into the court towards teammates. None of the out of bounds swatting nonsense.

Holy shit this video is perfect. Here is the greatest coach and greatest big man of all time explaining the block.
:O.......those flower NBA league people suspended Melo for a game. Now Knicks are gonna get raped by Pacers tonight on national TNT low # of games night that everyone will be watching.
Wtf. Kevin Garnett says "your wife tastes like honey nut Cheerios" and Melo is supposed to take it like a bitch? IN NEW YORK? No way.
No derogatory terms. That is like literally my one rule. -Conscript

It's coming in 1.2!!!
Ya that Melo suspension is about as stupid as the Boogie suspension for confronting the Spurs' super douchey color guy following a game. Both of those events should be fines at worst. When you have guys getting the same suspensions as other players who either contact refs (Rondo got one game on literally like his 6th offense) and whoever threw a crazy elbow a couple weeks ago and got the same 2 games Boogie got for talking to the color guy you have a discipline scale problem. Still better than the NHL's Wheel of Discipline though.
