I agree RunningJump, hes gonna feed those big guys and make their job alot easier. Hes averaged all those assists these past few years with average teammates, just imagine the picks dwight and pau will set for him and how dangerous he'll be coming off those picks whether hes takin an open jumpshot or dishin
Sorry if I sound butt hurt but that's not the case in any shape or form. I mean its not the first time some others picked an X team over Miami. Nothing personal. It's an opinion and every has different POVs. So again, my bad if i came off like sensitive. And it's not surprising the fans of other teams will go against the Heat. Am I lying?
Back to Lakers, Pau isn't a good defender. Kobe and Meta aren't wht they were a few years back but can be given their respect for their defensive capabilities. I'm just saying that a OKC still looks like the most superior in the west but the lakers and a plethora of other teams are in the mix as well.
Back to the article, the only things I'm confused about wht SVG said was that the Knicks and Nets are lower tier playoff teams. I don't know if he means 7th and 8th seed teams or Something like that. I don't see either team that low this year honestly speaking.
When it comes to the Lakers vs Thunder in a series .. Thunder in 7
When it comes to the Lakers vs Heat in a series .. Heat in 6
The Heat and Thunder have so much speed invested in their game-plan the past two seasons .. both teams can afford to invest in veteran halfcourt closers (Ray Allen) to add to their rotation. Plus Westbrook backup "speedy" Maynor is back this season.
We all should know the Lakers are not finish building their postseason team .. I see the Lakers trading weakassset Pau before the February trade dead-line.
I voted for Kidd as the starting PG. He still has something left in the tank to lead this Knicks team.
My biggest concern going into the season continues to be STAT. Will he continue to regress or will he regain his superstar form? Can he play with Melo? We need the old STAT back to be a contender.
