Byron Mullens tries to put LaMarcus Aldridge on a poster with an impressive dunk against the Blazers, though Byron probably wants to see if there’s a photo for that poster where he doesn’t look like he’s about to hit the floor face-first.

I could shoot 4 for 12 and I’ll still hit the game winner like that s*** gravy

No, really, DWade was 4 for 12 before he when glass for the game winner, all while LeBron, who was 13 for 23 with a ridiculous 35 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks, stood in the corner and watched. Don’t worry, they both celebrated the win together by turning to Cam Newton on the sideline and giving him a taste of his own Superman touchdown celebration. 

Not a big deal to me but I’m sure Bayless, Woj, Whitlock and the rest of the LeBron-haters will magnify, dissect, and beat this topic to death tomorrow. 

And they probably won’t mention how badly LeBron got robbed on a dunk a few minutes before that.

NBA Haikus - 2011-2012 Season Preview - The Southeast Division

It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.

Our third installment of NBA Haikus is dedicated to the Eastern Conference’s Southeast Division. This division has a ton of star power and always gets 3 teams into the playoffs despite not having a single team play in one of the top 5 television market

Eastern Conference - Southeast Division:

Atlanta Hawks:
Add a great scorer 
His name, Tracy McGrady 
A decade too late
__________ 

Charlotte Bobcats:
Can Kemba play point
Boris Diaw likes cream sauce
Bismac Biyombo
__________ 

Miami Heat:
The Big 3 play D
Stuntin’ on the Jumbotron
Quarters one through three
__________ 

Orlando Magic:
Dwight Howard won’t stay
Deal with it, Orlando fans
Please fire Otis Smith
__________ 

Washington Wizards:
Bullets hands are back
Red, white, and blue stripes are cool
Rashard makes too much
__________

Kemba Walker is always smiling.
He’s like a much better (much, much, much, much, much, much, better) Jonny Flynn

Your Daily Blake Griffin Dunk: Even Blake was wowed by this ally-oop.

He seemingly gets shot out of a cannon out of this one, emerging violently from the pack to smash home the lob from Mo Williams. I guess the Bearded One wasn’t the only dude who could throw ally-oops to Griffin.

No Coach, No Cry

Said, said, said I remember when we used to sit
On the sidelines in Charlotte
Oba, ob-serving the terrible Bobcats
As they would mingle with the better teams we meet
Good games we have had, oh good games we’ve lost along the way
In this bright future you can’t forget your losses
So dry your tears I say

No coach, no cry
No coach, no cry
Oh my Little Larry, don’t she’d no tears
No coach, no cry

Said, said,Said I remember when we used to sit
On the sidelines in Charlotte
And then Stephen would make the fire light
Basketballs burnin’ through the rim at night
Then we would watch game tape
Of which I’ll share with you

My shoe deal is my only carriage
So I’ve got to push on through
But while you’re gone…

Everything’s gonna be alright
Imma hire Silas tonight
Everything’s gonna be alright
Imma hire Silas tonight
Everything’s gonna be alright
Imma hire Silas tonight
Everything’s gonna be alright
Imma hire Silas tonight…

Deron Williams with the game-winning shot, seconds after making the game-saving block. We might have to start calling him “General Sherman,” because D-Will torched the Southeast all week long.

NBA OFF SEASON PREVIEW: CHARLOTTE BOBCATS

Any team coupling the spirit of Stephen Jackson with the coaching methods of Larry Brown has to be intriguing to watch.  You have to admit, it’s sort of impressive how they limped into the playoffs last year on their defensive ability alone (DRtg- 102.8, 1st).

This upcoming 2010-11 season seems to hold the same amount of mystery as last year.  There wasn’t too much shuffling of the roster this summer.  The one glaring loss has to be at point guard, with Felton (Win Shares- 6.5) leaving for New Yawk.  Other than that, the core of the franchise remains in tact. 




CRASH will be CRASH.  Jax is going to put up the usual 19, 5, 4.  Boris Diaw will flummox fantasy owners worldwide.  Coach Brown will shout defensive schemes until his diaphragm slowly deteriorates (I hope that doesn’t happen). Tyrus Thomas is going to finally become the Stromile Swift-like player we all KNOW he was meant to be.  Derrick Brown could turn into David West 2.0.  The rest is up to the basketball gods.

Sounds fun, doesn’t it? 



However, with an owner like Michael Jeffrey Jordan, mediocrity cannot be tolerated.  He knows better; the greatest expects greatness.  Thus, I expect them to barely miss out on nabbing that coveted 8th seed in the East.  The Knicks, Heat, Pacers, and Bucks all improved greatly in the off-season, while Charlotte stood pat.  Maybe it’s because I hate D.J. Augustin.



Key Additions:
Kwame Brown (?), Sherron Collins, Darius Miles (head bump).



Key Subtractions:
Raymond Felton, Raja Bell’s defensive presence & Tyson Chandler’s innate ability to finish alley-oops.

Predictions & Fun Facts:

  • The ‘Cats win 40 games and miss the playoffs.
  • Kwame will be waived.
  • Nazr Mohammed starts at least 15 games at center.

  • D.J. Augustin makes me look bad.

Shaun Livingston signed by the Charlotte Bobcats

ESPN reports:

Shaun Livingston suffered what was widely considered a career-ending knee injury playing against Charlotte in 2007.

Just over three years later, he’s joining the Bobcats to continue his comeback and help plug their hole at point guard.

"Yes," agent Henry Thomas said, "how ironic."

Thomas confirmed on Wednesday his client was headed to Charlotte but didn’t provide financial figures. Yahoo! Sports reported it was a two-year deal worth $7 million.

I’m happy to see MJ & the Bobcats organization giving the kid a shot.  Good luck in Charlotte, Shaun.
