    It's still baffling to me why Jackson limits Bynum's min so much and on the flip side continues to play Fisher so much.

    Wouldn't y'all agree that the 4 remaining teams are good enough to win the Championship? We don't know which one will actually do it.

    That was us. Just because we didn't do it for a few years straight doesn't mean that we weren't good enough. If Cleveland fails this year, it doesn't mean that their GM is at fault for not putting a good enough roster together.

    Chauncey at this very minute is sitting at the same height as the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Chauncey. 2 wins in the conference finals.

    He is 2 losses away from being labled as officially on the decline and 6 wins away from a future hall of fame spot.

    It is a fork in the road on the road.

    So, if the problem in Detroit was that Billups wasn't surround with young punks, why didn't we just go and get some? That wouldn't have been too difficult.

    “It’s funny because I kind of know what it’s like to be a coach now,” Billups said. “I say stuff sometimes and the guys get mad at me because I’m demanding. I’m real demanding.
    There's nothing wrong with being demanding, is there?
    -
    Sometimes, these Nuggets will be bursting on the break, young legs on the relentless run and sometimes Anthony says that Billups will pull him aside and plead, “We gotta slow down. I can’t keep up with you guys, man.”
    You guys were right, his slow legs can't run all nite.
    -
    They make me look three or four years younger.
    Yeah, cause the guys you were playing with in Det. were boring the life out of you.
    There was nothing left to teach them.

    I keep trying to read Chauncey's face, looking for answers. What is he thinking? Does he really like playing with these guys? Does he miss Rip? Does he still hold it against Joe D for the way things went down at the end? Is Kenyon Martin even half the teammate that Sheed is? When he's being introduced, is he thinking about Mason? Does he miss Detroit? Is he missing his "brothers"? Does he sometimes glance around and think "wtf"? I never get any answers tho, I don't get jack.

    Interesting speculations. But I suspect he is very focused on the task at hand, and is not looking backwards at all. Also, the further he advances in the playoffs with Denver, the less likely he is to think about the past.

    We had "young punks". We traded CB the year we decided to play them and then reniged (sp?) on that as well.

    George Carl is now officially the worst coach in the NBA. How in god's name do you not teach your players on how to in bound a basketball? That's the third time it happened. The Nuggets players are retarded or something. :pound:

    I literally stared at the TV for a good 2 minutes LOL. Priceless.

    edited to add;

    I think i actually have to go to the LAL board and figure out why Bynum plays so little. It's really bugging me.

    At the risk of talking to myself, it's eerie to watch Shannon Brown lock up Chauncey. He absolutely if they win won this game for them.

    Derek Fisher is so useless.

    Fisher looks so old out there. Boy, when it goes it goes fast.

    Bynum has made something of a pubic issue out of his lack of minutes. Jackson apparently said the other day that he is going to have to play better defense to get more playing time.
