“is the clippers looking good? do blake griffin needs to do more than dunking?”

Blake Griffin is one hell of a player his athleticism is off the chart but Mr. Griffin really need to work on Defense if they want to extend their post-season run. I am not saying he is not a defensive player but he needs to focus on that more, besides they are lucky to have chris paul to orchestrate their offense. Griffin needs to work on his post skills and perimeter shooting. 6’10 Lebron James? hahaha not bad right? well I am looking at the clippers to be dominant next season, if they sign chris paul to an extension and nick young and deandre jordan developed to be a more complete player and the major factor is Blake Griffin upgrade his Defense. it is going to be one hell of a 2013 season?

BYNUM

” some of the kobe fans is going to hate for me this”Image

here it goes, let’s go to the wild wild west, in this conference this is like a slot machine you’ll never know, what might happen, because the amount of talent the teams in the west have, but in this article let’s focus on the lakers. well everybody says that kobe don’t like to pass the rock, okay first the offense of the lakers focuses on kobe bryant, that’s a no brainer but for able to the lakers to win, Coach Brown and Kobe need to utilize Andrew Bynum. To tell you the truth kobe, bynum is the main ingredient for your 6th ring and add a little dash of ramon sessions and keep pau gasol on the side dish and it is going to be one hell of a meal, with all the Dwight Drama, Bynum is beginning to be one of the dominant center in the NBA, and he showed it last night against the nuggets, but still i think this one of the best matchup for the lakers, the nuggets need to only let lawson and faried play on a high level to match kobe and co. But the truth is kobe needs bynum to get his 6th ring.

Man Down in chicago

MAN DOWN! MAN DOWN!

This is a change of scenery for the nba playoffs! I was watching game 1 of the bulls vs 76ers, I was so excited to see Derrick Rose back on the hardwood after months of being sideline with an ankle, back and groin injury, but this one really shock the NBA universe! Chicago’s title hopes goes down the drain to see rose limp and down on the court. Actually I was amazed to see him play at an MVP type level, can’t argue that when Rose is on the floor, chicago’s offense flows like water.Almost posting a triple-double in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, chicago’s world has turned upside-down, time stopped and emotions burst, as you see your star fall down on the hardwood. I was shocked and saddened to see Derrick Rose limpin but like Coach Thibodeau said “it happens, it happens”.

It’s good to see Derrick Rose was able to walk after the injury, compared to (no pun intended) Iman Shumpert’s injury which his teammates need to carry him literally. Well coming to the post season, derrick rose is not a 100% basketball player due to his past injury, but respect to the guy, he gave his best to beat the 76ers and play at his best.

On the jackasses who think Tom Thibodeau should have sit him in the final minutes, well think twice. it is only a 12 point lead , lou williams, jrue holiday and andrei igoudala are on the floor. Remembers T-Macs 12 points in just less than a minute. that could happen, Coach Tom just want to finish it strong with his best guys on the floor making it sure that they take the win.Want to argue ask the memphis grizzlies and let them tell you the story of the great comeback of L.A. Clippers. It’s just tough that the win pay off with a high price and that is losing Derrick Rose.

Get Well soon D-Rose! Next Season Bulls will trample the EAST CONFERENCE!
