    I don't think the Cavs being 0-2 is that big a deal either. It's all of 1/41 of the way through their season.

    cleveland is going to be in the hunt when the playoffs start, but I think its going to take time and are going to be hard pressed to be better then the 3rd seed in the east.

    Boston is head and heals above every other team at this point.

    which means there looking at a 2nd round matchup with the magic againt a team that they didn't match up well against last year and they did nothing to change that this year.

    ...yeah, but they're on pace to go 0-82 while the Pistons are playing at an 82-0 clip.

    My point is they're taking the time 1 or 2 games into the season to give us a snapshot of what has happened so far and so far they are 0-2 and have already lost 1/2 as many home games as they did last year.

    For a network who can't get through a broadcast without mentioning the "storylines" it is a little odd.

    When told that the Celtics hadn’t won in five years here (in Cleveland), he (Sheed) shrugged and said, “I’ve won in this building plenty of times.”

    Maybe not quite as many as he should have, but still a great line.

    It's hard to dislike Sheed, but I am much happier to appreciate him at a distance this year.

    It would be easier to visualize if you phrased it in terms of 48 game increments.

    The Cavs next two games are vs the Twolves and the Bobcats, so they should rebound back to .500......the problem is if they lose those two and start off 0-4, should we be identifying Shaq as possibly this seasons AI?....completely throwing off the chemistry of a team that should be in the ECF??

    I know its to early to tell as we had the same adjustment issues last season with AI.....the problem is we never adjusted :yellowprison:

    Not a big fan of Otis Smith, but I love Dwight Howard, and JDub is looking good after the time off.

    Only one game, but the much ballyhooed Spurs looked a step slow on the back to back and were out hustled by the quicker Bulls team.

    McDyess was a -15 in 16 mins of play and scored 1 pt and had 3 boards. TD seem to be the only Spur in sync with 28 pts and 16 boards and a +/- of 0...?

    Parker, Genobli and RJ were a cold 10-31 shooting :cold:

    Bulls looked like the same team that took the C's to seven games in last years playoffs, but as indicated only one game, so we will wait and see.........

    What...What am I reading. The Bulls might be good. They beat the Spurs. They have the Celtics next. I'll be interested to see how they do against Sheed's team. I really think Chicago is the up and coming team this season...

    You have to think that the Bulls forum fans have to be more excited about the their win over the Spurs than we were about our win over the Grizzlies....I mean we were pretty giddy last night and today......wonder how we would felt if that win had been over an upper tier team istead of the mighty grizzzzzz..:sssh:

    My eyes have really failed me. I was watching the Spurs last night and was confusing RJ for Bruce Bowen and DuJaun Blair for Bob Horry. I got no idea what is going on.

    And here I was yammering away about how good they looked on opening night. Last night the Spurs only looked old.

    Same for the Pistons, right?

    The league seems to be allowing teams to wear oddly colored unis at home. I guess when that happens the visitors have to wear white.

    Sorta reminds me of the NFL. Home team wears dark jerseys and away team wears light jerseys. RIGHT??
