    In my opinion, it's just more entertaining to watch B-ball than Baseball.

    They also have all the timeouts and fouls at the end that drags the last minute in game time to 10 minutes in real time. It comes down to who can shoot free throws the best. That's even if the game is close to begin with, which was not the case in the first 3 games of the NBA finals this year.

    If anything in basketball OR gridiron football could match the constant, mind bending, gut wrenching intensity of last year's ALCS between the Red Sox and the Yanks (excluding Game 3), I haven't ran into it yet. The closest I know of are the 90 (sometimes plus) minutes of a CL Final in soccer (this years, for example) and the back 9 of either the Masters or the British Open. Basketball.. hah. Maybe back in 1986...

    It's only few time in baseball that you feel the intensity. Nevermind...it depends if you're a hardcore basketball or baseball's fan, right?

    Again, I'd disagree. But like you said, it depends on the person.

    In basketball related news

    Ray Allen expected to resign 85 mill over 5 years.
    Thomas shopping Marbury around possibly Marbury + scrubs to the Sixers for Dalembert (sign and trade) + scrubs + contract fillers.

    Marbury and AI in the same backcourt hah. Good luck getting shots frontcourt Those 2 can easily jack up 50 shots between them.
    Basketball is the second most exciting indoor sport, and the other one shouldn't have spectators.

    Maybe that's what Thomas wants - A Dumars/Thomas like backcourt

    For the 76ers? I knew Isiah was a bit out there, but I didn't know he was planning for other teams as well as his own. That might explain some of his moves...

    Lakers prediction for 2006?

    NBA champ?
    West Conference champ?
    2nd Round?
    1st Round?
    Do not make the playoff again?

    My prediction, they'll go pass the 2nd round but will lose in the West Conference. I think Phil can get them there. What's your prediction?

    NBA Champ? No, they need a good Center and PG before that happens...
    Western Conference champ? No.
    2nd round? Maybe
    1st Round? Maybe
    They'll make the playoffs.

    I think they'll get to the playoffs. I think they'll make it past the 1st round and then eliminated in the next round.

    Other NBA News:

    Nate Mcmillan is going to Portland
    Michael Redd re-signs with the Bucks

    Doesn't look like the Cavaliers will be getting anyone to help out LJ :\ They were trying to get Redd and Ray Allen... Doesn't look like that will be happening.

    In light of some of those rather "optimistic" predictions for the Lakers, I can see how some people would think that Yao was as "dominant" as they think he is.

    Western Finals? They might not even make the playoffs next year. They missed the playoffs by 11 games. Andrew Bynum and Phil Jackson will make up 11 games? Or how about this? Suns, Spurs, Mavs, Sonics, Rockets, Kings, Nuggets, Grizzlies, and T'Wolves. If the Lakers make the playoffs, 2 of those teams will have to miss the playoffs, which two? Kings and Grizzlies would be the most obvious choices, but still...

    Which all but guarantees that Lebron will high tail it out of Cleveland very very soon.

    Lebron might eventually. Allen Iverson should have done it a long time ago. He's a great player. Sucks that he'll never receive a ring before he retire. Lebron should leave and go to Philly and play with AI.

    You never know. There's always the Mitch Richmond option of getting an NBA ring before one retires...

    Lakers will make the playoffs and get booted in 4. Phil can probably get Odom to play better but we still have Sucky Atkins and no frontcourt. No frontcourt = 1st sweep at the hands of either SA or PHX.

    CLE is better off landing Joe Johnson. Throw JJ the same amount they had planned for Allen and Redd and see if PHX will match. JJ > Allen/Redd

    Worst case scenario they pursue Simmons who's a damn good player for 1/2 the price of the other 3.
