Capable of big games, otherwise he's just solid. Can't defend quicker PG's (like Westbrook, the real deal Stealth PG).


The X puts up a pretty convincing argument. Any of the JKidd lovers able to argue against it?

Anyone able to justify that Kidd deserves a retired jersey even if we don't win a title?

EDIT: X, you should make your predictions before the game recap is posted if you want to participate for some endurance points!

Durant Lifts Stealth In Another Stellar Effort
Seattle Stealth at Portland Trailblazers: 148-141 (OT)
Preview | Boxscore | Recap | Highlights

Image

December 29, PORTLAND (AP) – Kevin Durant finished with his fourth consecutive game scoring over 40 points and the Stealth finished with an epic overtime win against their ‘I-5 rivals’ Portland Trailblazers.

Durant forced overtime at the buzzer in the fourth quarter with a fadeaway jumper over Brandon Roy. The superstar Stealth forward did not waste any time in the extra period as he scored 8 of his team’s 15 points in just a handful of minutes to put his team in a commanding position for the win. That capped a wonderful night in which Durant was just 1 point shy of his career high of 56 points.

“He (Durant) was just all over the place,” Roy said after the game, “He played a very good game.” Roy has had many scoring duels with Durant when their teams have matched up but he failed to match him on this occasion. Durant even forced Roy into 2 costly turnovers in the fourth quarter.

The Stealth used a 41-27 third quarter to get back into the basketball game after falling behind Portland early on in the match. Andrew Bogut held a pivotal role in the comeback as he was brilliant on both ends of the floor with 18 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists. Allen Iverson was also important in the third period as he scored 13 of his 22 points in that quarter.

The fourth quarter saw both teams have a neck and neck battle to the final whistle. Roy actually scored back to back triples to push his team up by 8 points late in regulation. However, Durant (19 fourth quarter points) was brilliant as he had two steals off of careless efforts by Roy and finished with dunks that silenced the Portland faithful. After Ben Gordon was blocked by Bogut with less than a minute remaining, Durant once again delivered with a drive to the hoop. The Blazers called a timeout and Roy missed a three point attempt that would have sealed the deal with 10.4 seconds remaining.

After a Stealth timeout, Durant delivered his heroics by calling out an isolation against Roy and splashing in a fadeaway to force overtime. “What a shot,” Head Coach George Karl gushed after the game, “This is why he is the league MVP. Have we ever seen someone like him in recent times?”

Durant and the Stealth made sure there was no need for the dramatic as they took care of business in the extra time period. They easily cruised to victory with the momentum clearly in their favour and the Blazers looking broken after Durant beat them down in the dying moments of regulation.

Notes: The Seattle Stealth win streak is up to 12 games now… Seattle are first in the Division with Portland just behind them in second… With the first returns for the All-Star ballot soon to be released; Durant and Bogut are first in their respective positions. The injured Reshawn Tyson and veteran Jason Kidd are among the top votegetters for Western Conference guards…

Yeah, I know. Shame nobody except a select few made mention of KD's 55 and you were the only one to speak of Bogut's triple double. (N)

It's definitely not going to be offered every game. We've just entered an exciting stretch of Stealth history :)

40 Point Streak Ends But Winning Continues

Image Image

DECEMBER 31, GOLDEN STATEKevin Durant was 2 points shy of a fifth consecutive 40 points game but did not blame Coach Karl for sitting him out for the entire fourth quarter. “I’m here to chase a championship and not some silly records. Only Kobe (Bryant) was immature and insecure enough to do that,” Durant stated his near-miss of an amazing streak of games, “I don’t need to score 40 every game because everyone already knows I could do it if I wanted to.”

The Stealth got the 134-107 win against the Warriors. With their winning streak at thirteen to end the year, the Stealth were already looking to 2014. “It’s a new year and we are playing great basketball,” Jason Kidd said, “Staying with the team was the best decision I’ve made. This is a lot of fun.” Kidd also made clear his New Year’s resolution, “I want to win a title. I think this is one of my best chances to do it. There’s no question that it is probably my last chance to do it.”

Durant finished with 38 points and 7 rebounds. Allen Iverson scored 23 in his second start of the season and Andrew Bogut added 18 points and 8 assists.

The Warriors were overwhelmed by the team that defeated them in their last playoff meeting. Monta Ellis led the team with 28 points, 10 assists and Louis Nixon also had a double double of 23 points and 10 assists. “You couldn’t expect any team to beat us when me and Louis both have double doubles,” Ellis said, “I can’t believe it. Seattle are definitely the best team in the league.”

Wolves Add Andrei Kirilenko

Image Image

JANUARY 1, MINNESOTA – The Minneosta Timberwolves acquired Andrei Kirilenko in a swap for Rashad McCants.The Wolves also got a future second round draft choice in the deal.

The 32 year old, 6’9” forward from Russia is averaging 4.4 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 1.9 apg in 15 mpg this season. He holds career averages of 11.2 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.8 bpg and 1.2 spg. Kirilenko has fallen out of favour in Milwaukee this season and the Wolves hope that he will be able to help add versatility to their core group of Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, Manfred Nissley and Janis Kalnins.

The Bucks traded for McCants, whom they hope will provide help at the shooting guard and point guard positions. The Bucks have been on a downward slide on the Eastern Conference standings and desperately needed a lift. McCants is averaging 11.5 ppg, 3.2 rpg in 19 mpg this season. He has played in 32 games. The 29 year old, 6’4” former Tar Heel was a starter last season for 50 games until Kevin Martin landed in Minnesota. He finished last season averaging 15 ppg and holds career averages of 12.2 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 1.6 apg and .477 FG%.

McCants has recently revealed that he was frustrated by the lack of playing time, not only behind starters Martin and Nissley but also behind veteran point guard Mike Bibby.

I actually think the Bucks were bigger winners. Adding a young guy to their guard rotation...

SG: Rip/Stevenson/McCants
PG: Conley/Farmar/McCants

McCants didn't really get in a better situation though did he? :lol:

On the plus side, the Bucks might be able to make a run at a big man to beef up their front court.

Re: A Legend Is Born III - "Porter" Jackson's Mavs Piece

Postby The X on Sat Jan 29, 2011 10:42 pm

Updated: December 31, 2013
Texas Conundrum
The veteran-laden Dallas Mavericks seem all set for post-season success, but do they have what it takes to get past the seemingly insurmountable challenges that will face them out West?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Bringing in three time NBA champion James Posey was just one move that the Mavs have made as they try to piece together a team capable of winning it all.


By Cedric "Porter" Jackson
ESPN.com Writer


In what is becoming a familiar scene in Dallas, Dirk can be seen sharing a joke and laughing on the bench with new teammates Andrew Watson and James Posey. During a timeout minutes later, Watson pulls guard Leo Lai aside to offer him some advice after he commits a bad turnover that costs the team a basket at the other end. Lai listens intently to what Watson has to say, nods a lot, gets a tap on the back then heads to the bench. The Mavs’ veterans seem generally invested in their younger teammates’ success and development as much as they do their own. Team success is paramount. Surely this doesn’t sound like a 17-14 team that is in a dogfight in the Western Conference, a team that is barely holding onto the seventh seed if the playoffs started today, but it is.

The current predicament was not suppose to be the case, not after its exciting playoff run last season, and not after beefing up their backcourt (Watson and Brooks) over the summer to add to their core (Nowitzki, Bayless and defensive dynamo Dela Cruz). Problem is that they won’t surprise anybody, opposing teams are ready for them. That and the simple fact that the teams around them in the West also got better.

Looking at their roster makeup, you really have to wonder if the Dallas Mavericks have what it takes to win a title. They are missing the quintessential ingredient required for a championship, a bankable superstar. You look around the league and you see Moses Chara, Lebron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul. Each player’s respective teams has got a bankable superstar and a legit shot at a title every year. Dallas does not have one. I know sentimentality means that you can’t look past Dirk Nowitzki, but frankly whilst he is well respected around league circles, he just isn’t the player he was a few years ago and is clearly in the twilight of his career, averaging only 18ppg on 44% shooting from the field this season. His team’s window has not yet closed though as we’ve seen Detroit win a title without a legit superstar in the mid noughties, as did Atlanta in recent years, but those teams are the exception, not the norm.

When asked about the early season struggles, Watson had this to say, “we’ve got a lot of new guys, myself, Aaron (Brooks), James (Posey), JJ (Hickson) and Brad (Miller). You can’t expect us to all gel overnight. Dirk also missed a chunk of time earlier this season, now he’s starting to work his way back. If we can get everybody together, healthy, with some time on our sides, I really like our chances.” Nowitzki chimes in shortly after, “I like our depth. You look at the recent championship teams and they all have great bench depth. You can’t win without that. The front office has done a great job of adding that depth over the summer and more recently.”

The Mavs’ front office may not be finished wheeling and dealing though with various rumours floating around that Cuban has commissioned his GM to find a starting centre. In the meantime, the Mavs currently have no shortage of veterans on their roster and are looking very old with Nowitzki, Posey, Watson and Brad Miller all being well on the wrong side of 30. Each of these players now has many years under their belt and the wisdom that comes with that. They have all been in situations where their team has succeeded and struggled and know what it takes to win ball games, so they are not worried. Maybe they should be, because I’m worried for them, worried that their season will be over by late April or early May unless something special clicks between now and then. Most of all I’m worried that Dirk will end his career like his good friend Steve Nash did, ringless. Let’s hope Cuban and his front office cronies have another ace up their sleeves, because they need it.

Karl was sort of expendable. Also gives Jao Wu a bit more of a shot to develop. Main reason was that it's part of the story. Something a little different.

It's quite sad he missed all of the tips especially when they are at the top of the thread. :lol:

And Goddamn Shadow is bringing his hatorade into the thread. - Sidenote: where have you been in these past few weeks?

Hate is such a strong word. If I have known earlier that Jao Wu was finally getting some space for minutes I would have been nicer. :lol:

Life ma mein. Things to finish when dem peeplez depend on you to do it else they'll kill themselves, I think they can and will. :lol:
Even didn't sleep for a day and a half at one point this past week. Kept going by eating every 5 hours and a regular intake of energy drinks every 10 hrs. All is good for now again.
Will probably disappear again. Just trying to catch up with the stories here after learning the delay BS that is 2K11 patch for PC.

I know what you mean. Energy drinks are going to kill you though. Try not to get addicted to them. :P
