Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Damn you're right. I forgot about that.

I don't think he could get away with that type of defense (fronting/ball denial) over a series though since they'll adjust and Gasol might grow a set too and actually fight for better position.

Of course Pau can fight for better position but you have to remember LeBron also has a strength advantage of Pau. When they matchup, really the only edge Pau has over LeBron is his size, Pau's strategy would have to be to use his size as an advantage over LeBron to be able to create himself some space to get open and get off good looks.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Anyone think the Pacers can challenge the Heat? Or I guess a better question is, is can anyone from the East, at all challenge the Heat?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Pacers & Celtics right now are their biggest challenges.

I don't think Brooklyn's ready to contend yet, they'll probably be around the 4-6 seeds. The Knicks could be added to the list if they finally fulfill their potential.

Chicago possibly could if Rose returns to health quickly.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Boston is probably the only challenge for the Heat. Heat could probably easily beat everyone else. So many ppl forget that Bosh was basically out the whole series with Indy and Boston. Hell I said Boston but no way is KG having that kind of run he had in a longer season and if Pierce doesnt give them at least 18 game they could be in trouble. Rondo is prob the best passer in the NBA so he could prob help them even if there main players talents are diminishing.

Forgot bout the Nets. Always thought Joe Johnson was great but last couple years I see he really cant step up when he needs to like other superstars.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

So Orlando managed to trade Howard for Afflalo & junk. How do these people get GM jobs? I'm still in shock Orlando took this deal...so bad. It works out for everyone but them.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Chicago will fall on the wayside I think now. The D-Rose Playoff injury was the worst thing that could have happened.

So Orlando got so beaten down that they just gave up. They should re-hire Stan Van Gundy.
