Blake Griffin is amazing...has 25 points in the 1st half against the Bulls...kid has to be an all-star.

Clips look good, have tons of young talent!

DRose had a great 1st quarter...MVP?

I'd give it to LaMarcus Aldridge if the Blazers can make the playoffs.

I think the best defense against Griffin is to put him on the line. He was 5/13 tonight. Dude is pretty ridiculous though individually. We didn't double him tonight and that completely shut their offense down though. Like Dwight, let Griffin get his and negate what their teammates do. His footwork his pretty nasty and he's so damn explosive.

Also, VDN has an elementary offensive system so it's fairly easy to defend. Blake is doing a lot of his damage on natural ability and athleticism.

He's Shawn Kemp Version2.0. I think the main thing to worry about though is his reckless play. I admire his attitude of going through people, but he's a high risk player and he's going to accumulate some injuries. He gets himself in some pretty bad positions trying to go over people and he almost had a nasty injury tonight when Boozer put him on the floor.

If he's able to develop a consistent shot and become around a 75% free throw shooter it's pretty much game over. I fully expect that to happen because his work ethic is ridiculous. His defense is pretty abysmal as well, but I think that's more coaching than anything. Rose is night and day better this year compared to when he played under Vinny.

I think we all know that's not how it works though. The MVP is given to the best player on one of the best teams. I'd consider Aldridge a contender, but unfortunately Dwight, CP3, Rose, LeBron, Wade, Durant and Dirk will finish ahead of him. I guess it depends on how you perceive 'value' and the league perceives value in wins.

Too many pretty boys scared to hurt themselves. I can't imagine why someone wouldn't want to do the dunk contest.

Shot 14/19 from the field, 10/11 from the line. If it isn't frightening to others how young this guy still is, i don't know what is.

So for sake of argument could we go with these five as being the top 5 in the NBA right now...in no particular order...

Rose
Durant
James
Howard
Bryant

Lebron is a coward. He has a history of it.

-Being too scared to do the dunk contest bc he knew he wouldn't win.
-Consistently passing on the game winning shot bc he's afraid of missing it
-Running to Miami bc he knew he couldn't win a championship as the alpha dog
-Afraid of going to Chicago bc of Jordan's shadow, afraid of NY bc of the expectations
-Not having the balls to own up to when he says something (see his last Cleveland rant)

I hope you've paid close attention to him this year. I can (sorta) understand not putting him top 5, but he definitely has "offense". He's averaged 24.9 this past month and his 22.4 ppg is easily a career high. He actually has post moves now (credit The Dream), and he's arguably the best interior scorer in the league (above Amare, Z-Bo, and Aldridge).

Howard definitely should be top 5 though. No player changes the game as much as he does.

And if you want to include Rose, I'd take out Durant.

You're ******* batshit insane if you think Durant is a borderline top five player.

Derrick Rose Gets It

Long-time, loyal reader Pete Vaz (soon to be inducted in the NorCal Hall of Fame) commented that he wanted to hear what his friend and mine, Clippers’ assistant Dave Severns, had to say on The Jerry Tarkanian Show on Tuesday night. One story, in particular, shed light on the type of competitor Bulls’ guard Derrick Rose is. (Dave worked on the Bulls’ staff during Rose’s first two years in the NBA).

Before the draft following his announcement he would leave Memphis to go pro (the Bulls held the rights to the first overall pick), Rose had an interview with Chicago’s front office, including owner Jerry Reinsdorf. Prior to his meeting, the Bulls met with Michael Beasley, who was also coming off a banner collegiate season. During the session with Beasley, there were a couple occasions in which (one of) his (two) cell phones went off. Believe it or not, he answered the calls!

New head coach Vinny Del Negro advised him that he was meeting with the owner and that, at that time, there couldn’t be too many things more important than listening to what Mr. Reinsdorf had to say and answering whatever questions the people at the meeting had of him. When Reinsdorf posed the question, “What about college basketball bothered you most?” Beasley contemplated for a moment and said, “When you go on the road and the referees make bad calls.”

When it was Rose’s turn in front of the brass, he sat up straight and was totally focused. He had a thorough grasp of the magnitude of the encounter. He put his ego aside. Consider this is a guy who won back-to-back state titles in high school and went 38-2 in his only season in college, dropping the national championship game in overtime. His answer speaks for the kind of guy Derrick Rose is and why he’s destined for (even more) greatness. What was his response to Reinsdorf’s question, “What about college basketball bothered you most?”

“Losing.”
