Title: NBA Playoffs Thread
Post by: _33 on April 13, 2011, 11:37:36 PM
The most entertaining event in all of sports is almost upon us. Let's use this thread to discuss how awesome the NBA playoffs are.

Will be refreshing watching some intense, high level basketball after suffering through the NCAA turd-a-ment a couple weeks ago.

Watching Portland/Dallas, noticed a few things:

1. Portland's half court logo still sucks.  Very 80's.  I think they stole it from the KC Comets
2. Reminded of when the KC Star wrote a few articles about what a genius former KU bball star Kevin Pritchard is.   :lol:
3. They keep showing clips of the city of Portland.  Looks likes part of the Eastern Block.  Must be part of the reason why nobody likes that city.

I've loved the Heat since the days of Harold Miner and Glen Rice (which makes me better than all the bandwagon Heat fans today) but I really started liking them when Alonzo Mourning went there from Charlotte. No two teams will ever hate each other more than the Knicks and Heat of the mid 90's.

Forgot that was Bynum. You'd have to assume Self is attracted to the Lakers' open spot considering their thug roster, right? Obviously they wouldn't be attracted to him, but still, I bet he's drooling all over himself thinking about it.

Wasn't trying to say he was good or bad, just showing his %. But he wasn't going to make that shot no matter what. They plays they're chalking up are terrible. Well, they may be great for all we know, but it's terrible that they wait until there's 7-8 seconds left on the shot clock before they run them.

Meh. If I wanted to watch someone dribble around and shoot 35 times a game I could watch myself at the rec.

that hawks team can be a lot of fun to watch.  super skilled and super athletic.  larry drew is really rough ridin' things up, though.

on the other side, noah is fun to watch.  boozer is fun to hate.  and rose doesn't take lots of shots because he's a selfish player.  there just isn't another scorer on that team.

Like over 25 ppg and 10 rpg through an entire playoff series? Yeah, only 4 people have ever done that.

Dirk is an all-time great. Lebron will be, but only because of the hype. He won't have the stats to back it up.

Dirk is an all-time great. Lebron will be, but only because of the hype. He won't have the stats to back it up.

Dirk is averaging 26.5 pts and 8.4 rebs in the playoffs. LeBron is averaging 24.5 pts and 9.1 rebs in the playoffs.

LeBron is also averaging twice as many steals, twice as many assists, three times more blocks and half the turnovers.

Probably the stat keepers are just blinded by the "hype".    :lol:

The only statistical category in which Dirk is better than LeBron in reg season or playoffs is rpg. James averages more ppg, assists (by a lot), steals, blocks and shoots a higher %.   :dunno:

James overall year: FG% - .506 and 3ptFG% - .325

Nowitzki overall this year: FG% - .515 and 3ptFG% - .415

Lebron takes a lot more shots, so yeah, he'll get more points. Lebron is a better defender, I agree. I'm not saying James is bad, he's definitely one of the best in the league. But comparing him to Michael Jordan? Don't you think that's a pretty big leap? (I know you didn't, but you seem to be taking the side that he's all all-time great)

I never said anything about him being an all-time great. I'm just refuting your statement that somehow Dirk's stats backed up his status while Lebron's status was due to hype. Obviously their stats are pretty comparable with James' being slightly better in most categories.

Yeah, but Lebron's status is much, much higher than Dirk's. Do you think if Dirk became a free agent and switched teams that there would be a "Decision"? Does anyone call him "King Nowitzki"? They are comparable players, and everyone and their mom could tell you who Lebron James is and a lot fewer could tell you who Nowitzki is. I mean, still a lot of people, but much less than people who know Lebron.

All NBA players have out of control egos.  Did you see the celebration after the trade?  Not winning a title after that stuff would be a gigantic faceplant.  And that would be absolutely comical to "witness."  If you don't understand about pulling for someone to fail, then maybe your shirt is tucked too tight?

it's not like there's nothing to that.  a guy off the bench can go balls to the wall because he knows he'll being going back to the bench before long.  they also don't have to worry about fouling out for the same reason.

Meh, he scored 9 in the final 4:30, drove and scored to push the lead from 5 to 7 with less than 90 sec left and then hit a 3 with 45 sec left to ice the game. That's clutch by anyone's definition...except lebron haters.

making a 3 with :45 left when you're up by 7 and the shot clock is winding down is not clutch in any way.  there's zero pressure in that situation.

Why do they have to be tied or trailing in the final minutes to be considered clutch when he hits a shot?  Just because they are winning doesn't mean that it isn't a big shot.  You listen to Skip Bayless too much.

He and the Heat were not good this year at the end of games. That is true. That seems to be changing in the playoffs though and wasn't a factor with James in his career before this season.

if that's the criteria for comparison, players like chris paul and dwight howard aren't even close to being top 20 players because they're not very versitile. 

Not really. He's by far the most versatile player in the NBA. You could easily be not very versatile and be in the top 10.

okay, that's just a bunch of bullshit.

Pretty meh. The guy makes 32 free throws in a row, and then misses two clutch free throws that would have made the game a lot easier for Miami to win. If Rose made that free throw and it ends up tied, who knows what happens in OT.

Wade scored just 9 points in the last 3:30 minutes, the same as Lebron. Why is everyone only talking about Lebron? Because of his hype and marketing. If you think someone is the next MJ or "the chosen one" then that's what you're going to see, whether that's actually what's happening or not. I'm not denying Lebron is a great player, but Dirk scored 9 of the last 10 points for his team to come back and beat the Thunder. He played BY FAR better than anyone else on that court. Lebron played just as well as Wade. Why is Lebron EASILY the best player of all time?

Who said Lebron was "easily the best player of all time?"  Also, Lebron played better than wade over the course of the game, he also defends better than Wade.  Just becuse they scored the same amount of points in the last 3:30 does not mean they had equal overall games.

Not to mention he got Dallas' final 12 points of the game tonight. He's the reason they were even able to tie it with 4 seconds left. He didn't block Bosh's game winning shot because of a good screen, and didn't make the final shot when he was off-balanced and had a defender's hand in his face.

Good point. That kind of reminds me of the time chum1 and I talked about how he reminded us of Scottie Pippen. Remember, because Scottie Pippen always had a bunch of assists because he would pass it to Jordan so the best player on the team could make a play? Lebron's finally realizing that he needs to get it to Wade more if they're going to have a shot at winning. No wonder they won last night.

So far, he's failing to accomplish what he wanted to when he decided to go to Miami:   be the player who is universally regarded/celebrated/adored as the best.  He made that goal clear when he was a free agent.  This will be the case at least for as long as Wade is their #1 option at closer.  I don't make the NBA superstar rules, but one of the them is that the best player gets the ball at the end of the game.

This is a great post, and really makes me think (really, no sarcasm).

The thing about Jordan is that he changed the game. I was not one of the 10 year olds who fell in love with the Bulls because of Jordan, and I was a Jordan hater then because I hated seeing the same team win every year. But he did change the game, and there are some intangibles that he had that LeBron does not have. For instance, the last two games when Miami had a shot to take the lead with less than a minute left in the game, they gave it to Wade in game 2, and Bosh in game 3. In the words of Bill Walker, "it's hard for me to like a guy who at the end of the game, wants to pass the ball to his teammates. You the number 1 option man, take the basket."

That does make him a team player, and that's respectable. I just don't see a clear distinction in talent between Wade and LeBron as I did with Jordan and Pippen.

Passing to a teammate for the game winner is very Jordan-esque. Lebron becoming more and more like Jordan with every game.   :drool:

Dirk overcoming a 102 degree fever to get 21 points and 11 boards reminds me of Jordan. What a competitor.

Meanwhile LeBron's like, "Nah, it's okay Wade. Why don't you just take care of it?"

You have to go back to the first game to see when LeBron wasn't completely outshined by Wade, and even in that game Wade had more rebounds and assists than LeBron.

He's easily the most talented to ever play the game. That said, he crumbles too easily when it's a big time situation. His game has too large of a swing, from completely outstanding to almost non-existent. When he figures out how to narrow that down, he'll be great(er). I think it's just a matter of maturing for him.

Yeah, Wade and James have swapped roles in this series. Lebron took (and made) almost every big shot in the Chicago series and even against the Celtics. Seems stupid to now defer to Wade in the Finals simply because he has a championship. He needs to be just as aggressive as he was in the last two series.

That's impossible to prove. Jordan was without a doubt the most dominant player ever, but he didn't have to face the same level of competition as players do today. Every basketball fan owes Jordan a huge "thank you", though, because if it weren't for Jordan, we would all have to listen to millions of retards tell us how John Stockton was the greatest point guard to ever play the game.

Why the hell did Miami not put James Jones on the floor? Guy is an outside threat, has had big games this year, was the 3 point champ and more than that was a guy Miami went after in the off-season to basically have wide-open looks off James & Wade drives.

Yeah, that may be a stretch. But the fact that they all took significant pay cuts to put this team together is a pretty big failure. And everyone who said LeBron is as good as Jordan, can you imagine the domination of the Heat if Jordan was on the same team as Bosh and Wade? When everyone put this team together, ESPN was asking if it should be considered a failure if they lost one game throughout the season. A championship was assumed.

If they go on to win the next 3 championships, then this year will just be viewed as a stepping stone to their domination. So while I don't think it's a complete failure, I think it's pretty obvious that LeBron and Wade are more immature than any thought before the season.

From a team standpoint, it's not. From a Lebron standpoint, not being able to take this team any further than he took the Cavaliers might not be a "complete failure", but it's pretty bad. It's also interesting that "complete failure" is the leading vote in Florida.

I've been confused by the home court situation in the Hawks-Celts series and just realized how stupid the NBA can be sometimes. Apparently a division winner can only be seeded as low as 4, but if they didnt earn the 4 on record they still only get 3 home games as if they are the lower seed. Why don't they just make them the 5 seed, that's what they are anyway beside the number next to their name.

Also Rondo cost himself the foul call late in the game. That's what happens when you flop to the floor every single time you enter the lane. Boy who cried wolf or whatever.

Paul Pierce is a bitch and embarrassed all of mankind with that wheelchair incident.  Not sure what that has to do with Flopami falling down every possession instead of playing defense.  BTW Lebron's 6th foul was horseshit, just as the one that he drew on KG was.  And Battier :facepalm: was he playing on skates?

Rondo is a Boss.  Also, though I've long called KG the biggest bitch in the NBA I've been coming around on him, and pretty much wish I could take those words back. He's an agitator to be sure, but he is smart about it.  That arm-lock on Lebron was a thing of beauty and almost worked. He almost has a Jamaresque quality to his game.

That foul nor the Pierce and James 6th should have been called.  Every time someone falls a foul doesn't need to be called.  James would not have fouled out if he didn't flop on the double foul to give himself his 5th.

I think the "taking over a game" talking point is pretty dumb, same as "being clutch". If you average 30 points a game, I don't see why it matters which quarter you score those 30 points in.

steve dave playoff only high level NBA analysis:

I like KG.  He has a lot of Jamar in him.  Like if Jamar was more intense and had NBA arms and legs and body.  I don't like Pierce or the other guy that used to be good at shooting but now isn't that I can't think of his name right now.  they seem too old.  rondo is good but his head looks funny.  mostly the eyes part of his head.

I don't really like the Heat because they kind of seem like softy softersons.  supposedly they are good but they don't like to act like they are.  could be strictly based on the games I've watched them (lost all of them).  they seem to get sad that they lose a lot but don't seem to want to do anything about it. 

I like the Thunder because my bro lives in Tulsa and is very excited about them and it gets me excited.  he texts me ridiculous crap like "THUNDER UP!!!!!!!" all the time. also I like the westbrook guy because he seems like he enjoys barelling towards the rim all haphazardly.  when Durant has the ball I tell mrs. dave he's going to dribble twice towards the basket and then fade away and make it.  he does this every time he has the ball.  makes me look like I know a lot about the NBA. 

the spurs seem like they are very, very good for 5 minutes but then suck for a long time and lose.  why not be good all the time?  duh.

I was really just hoping The Heat or The Thunder would win it this year. Never thought both of them would make the Finals. It will be tough choosing who to cheer for. That being said, as soon as a bunch of ugly white midwesterners start talking about how awesome the Thunder are, I'm pretty sure the decision will be made for me.

I don't know why anyone cares about the decision.

Lebron: Hey, guys. I'm gonna do a thing on TV. You can watch or whatever. And here's a bajillion dollars for kids and stuff.
Lebron Haters: OH MAN WHAT AN bad person HE SAID HE WAS TALENTED AND WANTS TO WIN A TITLE AND HE DANCED WITH THOSE OTHER TWO GUYS AND FIREWORKS WERE THERE!

I like Lebron, but I love listening to his haters hate. The meltdown when he finally wins a championship will be fantastic, but unfortunately, I think it will put an end to the haters.

*Also, I tend to like superstars who play for one team more than players who demand trades/enter free agency despite perfectly good offers from where they are. I liked Lebron more when he was a Cavalier, and "The Decision" really didn't bother me at all.

Did he really have that good of an offer from the Cavalier's? "Hey, Lebron, stay with the team so we can milk as much money as possible from your extreme talent and marketability while we do pretty much nothing to secure you a supporting cast that will help you win championships." I'm not a Lebron lover, but I also don't see anything wrong with him moving from a team that made no effort to build a championship caliber team. Jordan needed a Pippen. Lebron had a Delonte West.

A quick google search suggests to me that Cleveland offered him $30 million more than any other team. Regardless, I wouldn't like him as much for leaving even if Cleveland offered less. I understand why he would want to leave. I just don't like it. It's hard to explain. At least he didn't wait until he was already on the way out to go and try to win a title like Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, or Kevin Garnett. That just reeks of desperation.

Yeah. People who switch jobs can't be trusted. They're just shifty, IMO. I mean, if you had to choose between an elite job in Miami surrounded by elite coworkers or a horrible job in Cleveland surrounded by crying middle-aged women who bring babies to work and force you to do everything in the entire company, that's a no-brainer for the Cleve every time.

lebron's game is not that much fun to watch.  he has very little skill relative to the other superstar players.   he's just bigger, stronger, and faster than his opponents.  iit's like watching a twelve year old play against eight year olds.  bfd.  not impressed.

word on the street is that lots of nba players can dunk, and that quite a few do it with a lot more style than lebron.  that is indeed the best part of his game, though.  the rest is very meh.  unless, of course, you like cheering, "nice job of being born a big, strong, fast guy, lebron," in which case your all time favorite player is probably shaq.

Doesn't LeBron regularly get abused when playing one-on-one defense?  He's not the most nimble afoot.  I agree that he's above NBA average in many skills, but below NBA superstar average, which is the point I was making.  We'll have to agree to disagree that he's comparable to players like Paul, Nash, and Westbrook as a passer.

Lebron may not be the best at being fun to watch.  He's fairly good at being the best at playing the game of basketball, though.  Like, for instance, if GMs could pick one player to build a franchise around, every single one would choose Lebron James.

That said, I've never seen him do the Mikan drill or the spin the ball on his finger.

no, of course i don't mean that a player must be as skilled as his peers to be as good as them.  i was responding to thoughts of the form, "lebron is one of the best [insert skill] in the game."  i don't think he's particularly skilled relative to his peers.

Just a few stats for you.  I know stats are irrelevant, but notwithstanding...

Scoring avg. - 3rd.  Durant and Kobe are the only players in the world to score more.  And James has a higher FG% than both.

Rebounding - 25th overall.  Not including Cs and PFs, James had the most boards in the NBA.

Assists - 12th overall.  Not including PGs, most assists in the NBA.

Steals - 3rd overall.  Not including PGs, most steals in NBA.

Double doubles - 16th overall.  Not including Cs and PFs, most doubles in the NBA.

So, what did we learn today?  James is the best SF in the league.  Only Durant has more points.  No SF has more rebounds, assists, or steals.

Yeah, we get it.  You're just wrong.  His numbers are at the top of essentially every statistical category.

If his style bores you , so be it.  Eye of the beholder, type of thing.

Not a huge LJ fan myself, but if I had to create a list of more highly skilled SFs or SGs, I'd have trouble.  Maybe Kobe in his prime?  Durant maybe?  I'm curious who would be on your list...

I like Lebron, but I love listening to his haters hate. The meltdown when he finally wins a championship will be fantastic, but unfortunately, I think it will put an end to the haters.

*Also, I tend to like superstars who play for one team more than players who demand trades/enter free agency despite perfectly good offers from where they are. I liked Lebron more when he was a Cavalier, and "The Decision" really didn't bother me at all.

Did he really have that good of an offer from the Cavalier's? "Hey, Lebron, stay with the team so we can milk as much money as possible from your extreme talent and marketability while we do pretty much nothing to secure you a supporting cast that will help you win championships." I'm not a Lebron lover, but I also don't see anything wrong with him moving from a team that made no effort to build a championship caliber team. Jordan needed a Pippen. Lebron had a Delonte West.

A quick google search suggests to me that Cleveland offered him $30 million more than any other team. Regardless, I wouldn't like him as much for leaving even if Cleveland offered less. I understand why he would want to leave. I just don't like it. It's hard to explain. At least he didn't wait until he was already on the way out to go and try to win a title like Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, or Kevin Garnett. That just reeks of desperation.

Yeah. People who switch jobs can't be trusted. They're just shifty, IMO. I mean, if you had to choose between an elite job in Miami surrounded by elite coworkers or a horrible job in Cleveland surrounded by crying middle-aged women who bring babies to work and force you to do everything in the entire company, that's a no-brainer for the Cleve every time.

I don't blame him, and I don't hate him or anything. The reality is that he just couldn't get the job done on his own team, so he went elsewhere to a team that was loaded with talent to finally win one. It would have been much more impressive if he had stayed at Cleveland and won a championship there, and he would be a much more likeable player. Role players switch teams. Superstars make the team theirs.

It would also be more impressive if he did it with only four guys on the court at a time. The whole "superstars don't switch teams" thing makes no sense. Jordan was already in a good market and had a GM that surrounded him with talent. He didn't have to leave. Same with Magic and Bird. Lebron was in a shitty town playing for a GM that surrounded him with shitty talent. His GM was unable to get the necessary pieces for a title to come to Cleveland, so Lebron went to the pieces. Superstars don't make teams. GMs do.

And what title teams aren't "loaded with talent?" Is Magic less impressive because he played with Kareem and Worthy? Kobe because he had Shaq? Bird because he had McHale, Parrish, etc?

The whole "players should stay with their original small town teams and try to win titles" thing just reeks of kstateo.

somebody posted a pic of Bird, Magic, and Jordan in Heat jerseys that said something like, "nah, we can win on our own". I (admittedly tardishly) asked if the HOF'ers you mentioned helped them any when they won their championships (or something to that effect). And some guy said they would have one without all those hall of famers you mentioned.

Lebron was taking that Cavs team to the NBA finals. Is it that far-fetched to think that they were only one player away and that as young as Lebron is, it was far more likely that he would have ended up with a few championships in Cleveland than not? I don't care if it reeks of K-Stateo. Michael Jordan was the Bulls. Kobe is the Lakers. Paul Pierce is the Celtics. Kevin Durant is the Thunder. Lebron was the Cavs. Now he is just some journeyman.

BTW, I absolutely loved "the decision" and wish that everyone who switches teams would do something like that. It's really the only reason I don't absolutely hate Lebron's guts right now.

One player away? Maybe. But that one player was not Antawn Jameson or sideshow bob, and that's who their Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!) GM got. Rather than thinking of them as one player away from a title, think of them of as one player away from a 9-win season (or whatever). Because that's what they were when one player (Lebron) left. That tells they were a crap roster of C+/B- players. Lebron should have all the respect in the world for physically dragging that laundry bag of bad news bears to a final.

Jordan was only able to be the Bulls because the piece were brought to him (Pippen, Grant, Kukoc, Rodman, Kerr, Paxon, etc). Paul Pierce is the Celtics because two other superstars "Lebroned" their shitty small market teams so they could go to a "team loaded with talent" and "finally get a ring".

Kobe and LA? Really? You want to compare Kobe's sweet set-up at the most desirable free-agent destination in the league with the greatest coach of all time and constant revolving door of elite, prime-years talent to the clown factory Lebron was shivering through in Cleveland? And OKC just proves another point about the good fortune of having a GM who surrounds you with talent (although it's also ironic since the team itself Lebroned another city).

Plus, he wasn't a quitter. He never left his team high and dry to pursue any selfish whims.

James has done nothing off the court to make people believe he isn't wholesome, family-friendly, or all-around likable. People say "the decision" turned them off, but the problem was Lebron leaving in the first place. If Jordan had gone 10 seasons without a title, then left to join Patrick Ewing and the Knicks, people would not think about him in the same light they do now, even if he had ended up with 10 rings.

It's not about a love for Cleveland. It's about people believing that if Lebron were really as good as advertised, he would have been able to win his championships anywhere.

Also, the Lebron hate existed before he left Cleveland, but it was nothing like it is now. Lebron wasn't being blamed for anything. He was being praised for taking a bunch of nobodies to the NBA finals.

"The Decision" wasn't the problem. If Lebron had created the hoopla to announce he was staying in Cleveland, I don't think he would have nearly as many haters. People don't hate him for "The Decision". They hate him because he left to go play with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Most people just point to "The Decision" because they don't want to admit the truth.

All Jordan had to do was not get arrested off the court, and he accomplished that mission admirably. People loved him because he played a brand of basketball that no one had ever seen before and he was so much better than everyone else on the court it was just ridiculous.

That's sort of a meaningless stat, though, because some playoff series have more games than others, and the best teams finish their series in fewer games.

 :comehere:
See, Lebron's great miscalculation ("the decision") failed because it never considered how much Americans loved Cleveland and wished that they themselves could spend their lives their working tirelessly toward the promise of never quite succeeding and then being blamed for everything.

What an bad person.

It's not about a love for Cleveland. It's about people believing that if Lebron were really as good as advertised, he would have been able to win his championships anywhere.

Also, the Lebron hate existed before he left Cleveland, but it was nothing like it is now. Lebron wasn't being blamed for anything. He was being praised for taking a bunch of nobodies to the NBA finals.

"The Decision" wasn't the problem. If Lebron had created the hoopla to announce he was staying in Cleveland, I don't think he would have nearly as many haters. People don't hate him for "The Decision". They hate him because he left to go play with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Most people just point to "The Decision" because they don't want to admit the truth.

People believing ANY single person can will a team to win in a 5 man game set themselves up for disappointment. No team that Cleveland put or was going to put on the floor would have won against any of the current bulls, celtics, spurs, or thunder squads that have at least 2 legitimate all star candidates.

The Thunder were the worst team in the NBA when they drafted Durant and OKC is a smaller market than Cleveland. So, KD>Lebron?

What has KD accomplished that Lebron didn't at Cleveland?

Nothing, but he will win a championship for OKC very soon.

If Lebron would have been surrounded by Westbrook, Perkins, Ibaka and Harden, he would have won a championship. The Thunder without Lebron would easily be better than Cleveland without Lebron.

How could they possibly have gotten all of that talent to OKC (smaller market than Cleveland)? Everyone keeps saying that Cleveland never would have gotten any talent and that Lebron would have never won a championship there. I think he would have, fwiw, but apparently Lebron did not.

Because OKC made some of the best draft picks of past decade? How is this even comparable?

That may be, but if Lebron really cared about what people think about him (and he does, very much), he should have stayed. I will agree that he never should have gone there in the first place, though. He could have just held out and forced a trade before he ever played and people would not still care about that.

Pretty sure Allen is going to come off the bench, play 20-25 minutes and go like 5-7 on wide open threes every game.  Lewis is washed up, I don't think he'll start.

don't know if they really had any other options. they tried the athletic pg in sessions and that didn't work out at all. they should be able to benefit from him on offense. defense though, you are definitely right. no way in hell can he guard westbrook or harden. but he's not a complete liability on the floor.

am a nuggets fan, so i'm a little biased, but this match-up, to me, is the most exciting in the first round. Should be an absolute track meet. If Curry gets hot things will get very interesting. A close second is Grizz v. Clips.

what if the heat lose

Just a matter of what round. I think Chicago definitely has a shot in the 2nd. If the Bulls can't do it then Melo will

Without DRose the Bulls are a low skill/high hustle team.  Low skill/high hustle teams don't win playoff series against superstars.  They may be able to beat the superstar team in the regular season via hustle but everyone hustles in the playoffs thereby negating the advantage of the high hustle team.

Without a doubt. The only downside is when you have one conference dominating like the west did for a while. But really, nothing compares to the greatness of the NBA playoffs.

Yeah, I like him.  The Celtics were actually way worse a couple years ago when when they had Perkins, Big Baby, and Nate Robinson.  Ray Allen was the only one I didn't mind on that team.

its tough to argue against Lebron, mainly because I think he's the best to ever play the game, but they both have completely different offensive styles and also have different talent surrounding them. On the whole, you are probably right. There is just no way Anthony compares to Lebron's efficiency, inclusion of teammates, and offensive rebounding. I'd still probably argue that melo is the best iso player in the game.

Lebron's worst game was better than 11 of Melo's.  Scoring is the most easily replaceable stat in the NBA.  Melo will never make a finals and probably never another conference finals.

Lebron plays along side 2 perenial All-Stars, the greatest 3 point shooter of all-time, defensive beast Birdman, and KU legend Mario Chalmers. It's not like defenses can key in on Lebron, there's too much else to worry about. He just pads his stats by playing against pud defenders

He takes way too many mid range jumpshots to even be in the conversation for best iso player. In the first round playoff series, Melo took 60+ mid range jumpshots in 6 games, nearly 20 more than the entire Houston Rockets team. King James, KD, and hell even Mamba don't rely on taking so many poor shots.

It's weird that I now consider a 22/4/4 performance by Curry to be horrible during these play offs. Can you imagine if Curry decided to shoot the 46% he's averaging in the playoffs?

Lebron
Carmelo
Wade
Durant
Curry
Rose
Paul

Wade in his prime, sure. Wade in 2013, gmafb. I assume Curry is only on there due to his 3 point shooting, because his offensive numbers aren't better than Harden?

I put Curry on the list because he seems to have the ability carry his team. I really haven't seen the Warriors play much outside of the playoffs, though, so I could be way off with his inclusion. Harden, to me, seems like a great player, but he will never be on a great team if he is the best player on that team.

I think this just comes down to categorization of what makes an "A" player. I define it as the top 2 or 3 (the upper 5% or 10%) players at their position in the league.  I'd categorize James Harden at that level as a SG.

I don't know if the center is a thing of the past. We are only 4 years removed from the Orlando Magic making it to the finals with a healthy and completely dominate Dwight Howard. David Lee was pretty damn close to averaging a double double this year, and Kevin Love is a force when he is playing the game. Obviously health concerns is a huge issue with any of those players and for all Centers, but I don't think we have seen the last of superstar big men. In fact, I still think Howard is a legitimate "build around" guy.

I also think that the "build around" idea is missing the ship given the current circumstances of the nba. It's become pretty clear that you can't take a team to the finals without building around 2 or more players on your team. Just look at what teams are remaining or will be remaining in their conference finals.

Things I look forward to:

Rooting for Indiana to beat Miami.  I think IND won 2 of 3 in the regular season.  They're good.  Chicago is complete dogshit right now and Miami still struggled with them at times.

Rooting for James, Wade, or Bosh to get seriously injured.  Always and forever.

Rooting for SA to beat Miami.  Could legit happen.

Yankees have way more money than anyone else. The Heat have just as much as any other team, and used it in an incredible way. Also, Lebron and Wade took pay cuts to be able to win Championships. A Rod and Jeter got paid more to go to the Yankees.

Lebron has posted up for years when he has the right matchup.
He did more of the 10 to 15 "mid" post game in Cleveland that usually ended up with a fade away or a face up and drive - now he is showing a more traditional low block game with drop steps and jump hooks.

(http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2013/0327/grant_i_LeBronClusterChange1011-1112.jpg) 

Again, I love watching him work down there because it is becoming a lost art. There are fewer and fewer guys with the footwork to play that way and officiating allows teams like the Celtics and Bulls to clog the lane it makes it almost impossible to finish unless you are at least 2 of elite size/athleticism/strength AND be a good free throw shooter.

The little runner shot in the lane - like Clemente used to do - is such a devastating shot because guards can get it off almost at will.  It seems to be under utilized.  Is it really that difficult of a shot even if you practice it all the time?  Parker made it look pretty easy tonight.

Parker is pretty devastating on the offensive end, a great finisher. I don't expect most NBA scrubs to be able to do what he can, but a lot of NBA guards are pretty bad at it in comparison.

I really need to start doing layups from the right elbow to the left side of the rim and finish with the right hand instead of the left. (Like Kawhai Leonard did on his and-1). I already do reverses this way, but usually use the left on the left side from straight on. Why do so many NBA players do this? I know they have left hands.

Do you guys realize how huge of a meltdown there will be if Miami loses?  I will be sad if it doesn't happen.

I think it would pale in comparison to the meltdown if Miami wins. It will be worse than last year, by far.
