    Yeah, the GM's opinions in the NBA don't mean anything

    They're definitely not the ones with the most important opinions or anything. They're not the ones calling the shots and making the personnel decisions.

    You could make the argument, but there's no denying that Chalmers, Wade, Lebron, Bosh are all better than average, and Battier is pretty solid as well (since he started a decent amount last year).

    Right now, if the Celtics are rolling out Rondo, Bradley, Pierce, Bass, KG whist bringing Lee and a few other solid defenders off the bench you could say they're just as good.

    GM's really gave votes for the Nash and Allen signings as the "most underrated player acquisition?"

    Agree with a good amount of these though, and it's nice to see that Bradley is getting love from GM's.

    we actually have more succes at winning the division this year
    who was the guy that left the team again?
    The thing we’re going to miss most about Dwight is his farting ability.
    - Glen Davis
    Biyombo told me, "This is my house!" I told him, "You have 7 wins, It’s everybody’s house..."
    - Rudy Gay
    I thought LeBron James was just going to be another addition to help me score
    - Ricky Davis

    I think Doc is a better motivator of players than Pop.

    After watching the C's give up 120 points!! weve got a lot of work to do, guess the GM's were right.
