KAREEM on Andrew Bynum:

Quote:
Andrew’s a nice kid — I am not knocking him — but if I was 21 or 22 and signed a contract for $50 million, I might be affected by it, too. He’s not passionate about the game; that’s a great word. But he does like getting paid. So that’s where I think you can figure out what’s going on with him.
Also some news on Dwyane Wade:

Quote:
Dwyane Wade has been slow to recover from knee surgery in early July.

Projected recovery time was four to six weeks, with the Saturday start of training camp marking 11 weeks of rehabilitation.

Wade still isn’t 100 percent and will likely miss the team’s October preseason games.

“I understand that it’s a process and I’m going to take that process and be … I’ve been here before, guys, so I know what to do. I’ll be all right,” Wade said. “I went all the way around the block just to go next door.”

The Heat declined to put a timeline on Wade’s return to full strength.

“I’m just strictly looking at him big picture,” Erik Spoelstra said. “I don’t have a specific plan for him in training camp of how many days. We’re going to read and react to it.”

Damn, Kareem must have hated mentoring 'Drew. I hope he forms a better relationship with Dwight, especially if starts mentoring him as well.

And it begins.

Quote:
Sixers announce they'll take "precautionary measures" w/new C Andrew Bynum and hold him out three weeks to recover from recent knee surgery. Sixers also sign veteran C Mikki Moore for frontcourt depth. Team says Bynum diagnosed w/bone bruise in right knee but can do conditioning
Anyway, some more pictures from the 2nd media day, which was for the rest of the NBA that isn't playing international preseason games:

Mikki Moore still has people willing to pay him to play basketball?

Rick Adelman on Michael Beasley:

Quote:
Yes, Michael has been good. I get along with him. But I don't think we'll be a championship team with him. If I put Michael in, Michael can score, but he doesn't play any defense and he forgets the other offensive players, and I just can't tolerate that under my system because the other players are just standing around.
I guess this sums up why Beasley was in Adelman's doghouse last year. Hope he does well in Phoenix though.

I did this last year, so I figured I'd do it again.
My top 5 at each position heading into this year:

PG's
1. Chris Paul
2. Deron Williams
3. Derrick Rose
4. Russell Westbrook
5. Rajon Rondo
SG's
1. Kobe Bryant
2. Dwyane Wade
3. Manu Ginobili
4. Eric Gordon
5. James Harden
SF's
1. LeBron James
2. Kevin Durant
3. Carmelo Anthony
4. Paul Pierce
5. Andre Iguodala
PF's
1. Kevin Love
2. LaMarcus Aldridge
3. Dirk Nowitzki
4. Chris Bosh
5. Blake Griffin
C's
1. Dwight Howard
2. Andrew Bynum
3. Kevin Garnett
4. Marc Gasol
5. Roy Hibbert

Some other predictions:
MVP - Kevin Durant
ROY - Anthony Davis
DPOY - Kevin Garnett
6th Man - James Harden
Most Improved - Goran Dragic

Switch Iggy and Pierce and we have the exact same list, maybe Rondo and Westbrook switched as well.

I think Rondo will surpass Westbrook this year.

As for Pierce/Iggy, I think healthy Pierce is better than Iggy.
