NBA Random Discussion 2012-13 Season

Postby bowdown on Thu Nov 01, 2012 4:14 pm

Where do we post random things from daily games? There arent any threads for overall discussion of this season. Not everybody will want to make a new thread about something random NBA related they want to say.

Agreed, from my perspective having one thread for league discussions is sensible, otherwise I won't post in NBA Talk at all. For a NBA fan who doesn't follow any particular team (& therefore will usually keep out of team threads), it's good to have somewhere to post general thoughts that don't deserve their own thread. I'll start it off.

Firstly, great to see James Harden have a great debut for Rockets. In today's NBA, he's such a lethal threat since he can play pick and roll and slice through defenders & get to the hoop (& FT line). His outside shooting is now more consistent. I've been a big fan of Harden since early in his sophomore season with Arizona State. I'll admit I don't like his big beard, I prefer him with just a goatie, but apart from that, all good. I'm hoping for great things from Harden over his career. I still don't think he's a number one option on a top team, but he'll put up good numbers in that role in Houston.

Other than that, great to see Bogut actually play. Hopefully when he gets himself in game shape, that W's will actually utilise him better than what Bucks did (although I'm doubtful).

-James Harden will be an All-Star, if there was any question before.
-Dallas has a few steals on the roster in Mayo, Wright, Crowder. Brand still looks decent.
-Steve Nash's body was only holding up all these years because he was in Phoenix.

Philly beat Denver without Bynum and held them down to 75 points (they scored less than 90 only 4 times last season). Something tells me that winning without Bynum is a skill this team will have to utilize very often and they do that by playing tough defense and making the game a slugfest. Not pretty, but it works.

Shame on those of Sixers fans who booed Iggy yesterday. Some of the Philly fanbase can be really fucking stupid sometimes, especially when it comes to Andre Iguodala - anything about him. He had a pretty bad game by the way, but not many people on the Nuggets didn't.

Good thing we won despite the newcoming trio of shooters doing quite badly. It was made possible by Spencer Hawes owning the game and hearing some MVP chants towards the end. He's a beast and a half you guys, I told you. Too bad Kwame didn't play.

Jrue signed the extension at the last minute. He wanted a max, settled for 41/4. That's not too bad, but probably still a bit more than he's worth at the moment. Assuming he develops, it's a reasonable deal.

Lillard seems to be too good, too early right now. I am starting to get scared. Can things really be this good? I hope he becomes a legitimate star in the league.

Lamarcus Aldridge needs to grab some damn rebounds. Had like 0 until the last 5 minutes of the game and ended up with 3.

Other than that the Blazers core seems very promising.

We've got one now, though. Just needed someone to create it. ;)

Spurs/Hornets was the first game televised here, caught the replay last night. Quite a good game, better than I was expecting it to be as it turned out to be pretty competitive. Al-Farouq Aminu had some entertaining moments for the Hornets, looks like he's going to get a decent amount of playing time this season. My new early pick for MIP.

Where's the thumb up button for this thread?

Manu Ginobili (back spasms) will not play against the Thunder on Thursday.Ginobili will miss his second game of the season for San Antonio. Back spasms can linger for most of the season and with the propensity Pop has to rest his players, Manu is likely going to rest a game here and there throughout the season. Danny Green is worth owning in majority of standard leagues.

Dunno what to make out of western conference. With Ginobili, I thought the top spot was well within grab for the Spurs.

And Bynum. I really wanted to see what this kid can do as a first option. Damn...

He has a lot to learn and makes tons of mistakes. He looks really lost sometimes and has nightmares guarding big men who have some post moves. Hope is that he will learn eventually and be consistent enough to be slipped in to the Starting 5.

Bottom line is just that he has got a lot to learn.

OMG. Maynor hits the first half court three of the season. All tied going into the fourth quarter now. Lol. Didn't expect the Spurs to let 10+ lead slip away that easy but I guess the Thunder still is no team to be taken lightly.

Definitely. Last season, I watched multiple games at once, switching between matches. Lolz. Maybe less of that this season.

He definitely can get injured, it's been his specialty for a few years now. About a week ago, the Sixers were saying he would play in the season opener. Guess what, he didn't and nobody know when exactly he'll be ready to play.

Really though, I'm not a big fan of the idea to have a franchise player whose knees could collapse any second, who's almost certain to miss at least 20-30 games every season and make $20M annually in the process, completely fucking up our salary in case this experiment fails.

The Bulls defense is too much for the Cavs. They're a young team though; hopefully they can learn something from this.

Durant seems to have improved his rebounding this season. 23p-14r-5a against the Spurs, 23p-17r-7a against the Blazers.

Doubleheader on ESPN was fun to watch today, pretty impressive shooting display for the Knicks. Sheed nails the three to punctuate the win and his comeback game. Great effort by the Clippers, too.

Could just seem that way because all the teams have been through a full training camp. This fact can not be underrated. Agree that there seems to be a lot more parity, but it's still early so we shall see.

Rodney Stuckey of the Pistons shot 1/23 FG in the first three games.

J-Rich is out with a sprained ankle. That means more minutes for Nick Young... makes me not want to watch the game tonight after his performance yesterday. Not like he was the only one who sucked, but still.

Anyone else surprised by how fresh Tim Duncan is looking. 22/10/3 blocks and some decent top 10 plays by the big fundamental. I mean, he was still a superb player the last seasons, but is looking even better right now.

You'd expect him to be slowing down a bit at this point, but he's kept himself in good shape, has had fairly good luck with injuries throughout his career and has the skill to adjust his game (which was never built on athleticism anyway) as he's gotten older. It's early days but this could be a bit of a renaissance season for him, after somewhat taking a back seat to Parker and Ginobili in recent years.

It's like TD is back in his early days with the Spurs. Most players at his age and position tend to slow down, but Duncan is still rocking! Don't be surprised if SAS ends up in the top 4 again.

This is a little late but Varejao in the season opener... 9 points, 23 rebounds and 9 assists.

If anyone was questioning the outside shooting touch for Dion Waiters, his three point shooting in the first four games has been 2-5, 1-2, 1-2 and 7-11 tonight against the Clippers. Not too shabby.

From what I've seen it doesn't seem like Waiters and Irving really compliment each other, but they both just do their own thing (like LeBron and Wade), and just end up with good games separately (Irving: 24 pts and 10 ast and Watiers: 28 pts in their win tonight at LAC).

I'd never expected the Cavs to win that one. For now the seem to be on the right track.
Also a great win by the shorthanded Wolves. Must be Shved's new haircut...
Biggest surprise to me still is the Knicks going 3-0 to start the season.

That could be a tough sell, though. Amar'e probably isn't going to be too keen on the idea and it's a lot of money to be paying a bench player, even a sixth man.

What a back breaking contract Amare' is. Has crippled the Knicks for the duration of his contract.

And a couple of the surprises for me has been Denver 0-3 and Drummond playing so few minutes at 17 a game. What are they trying to accomplish by not playing him more? It is not like they have a lot of significant wins they are going to accumulate by playing their veterans more than him so why not just let your lottery pick develop fast.

To be fair, the Knicks did it to themselves.

I thought the Nuggets would be better than they have been so far, too.

What's wrong with Rodney Stuckey? He's playing very poorly. I hope he picks it up soon. :shake:

Frank yanks Disposition Matrix the instant he does anything slightly wrong.

He's killing the team by playing Prince and the other dopes, the second and young units are tearing people up at times. Singler is a mad man, but then in come Stuckey and Prince...

Stuckey's still ma man. I think injury's been holding him back. When he becomes healthier, the Pistons will start winning some games. The team needs to feed him more balls in the meantime, to boost his confidence. Whether you like him or not, he's the only capable scorer on the team.

Just give the ball to Monroe and let him work.

Danny Granger is out for about three months. That's real bad news for the Pacers and their chances of finishing this season as a top 5 team in the east.

Should rename him to "Rodney Suckey"...

I've seen this joke come up in just about every NBA-related corner of the internet.
