The Carolina Hurricanes, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Rays each use "regional" names.

Also, when Wayne Huizenga purchased the Dolphins in 1994, he tried to rename them the "South Florida Dolphins" but the NFL didn't approve the change.

ManRam

I still don't know if it's wise to trade Pau, but he's making a decent case today that as a starting CENTER he's still got a tremendous amount of value (though, he ain't rebounding too well).

Kobe's off-the-ball defense has been a killer defensively. With Dwight not out there bad guard defense is gonna cripple them..and it is.

tredigs
01-20-2013, 03:53 PM
What I don't get is what's so different about Bynum and Howard's game that Pau would be so out of his element?

Lakers + Giants
01-20-2013, 03:54 PM
Honestly, this game is the playoff chance killer. 6 games after .500 with this loss then @ Bulls and @ Memphis, that's 8 games under .500. NO WAY in hell the we come back from that especially since we aren't playing any better than we were 2 months ago.

SteBO

I think he tried infusing energy by inserting Sacre out there, but that hasn't worked. Kobe's missing too many shots, Pau isn't rebounding or defending, the bench is non-existent besides Earl Clark.

Actually, Clark has been their best player today.

Guy has one of the best post games in the league.

When you have a guy with Kobe's personality you need a coach who is just as strong mentally who can make that happen. I remember Brown wanted to have the offense run through Bynum/Gasol and it just never happened consistently enough

I actually just moved to South Lake Tahoe a couple weeks ago, but which neighborhood? SF? If you're with a group I'd go on a wine tasting mission in Napa or Sonoma County (could range from just enjoying some good wine and ridiculous views to pure debauchery), and go catch a dubs game across the bridge; OKC coming to town on Wednesday.

Why? They're having a bad half a season after trading for the best big man in the game and a HOF PG. That's all the Lakers ever do. It's not working out for once...I'm not gonna throw a pity party for them. They're the Lakers, they'll bounce back...whether it's this year or not.

A bad half season is no reason to ever feel bad about a team that oozes success like the Lakers. Welcome to the reality of almost every other franchise in the league.

About time somebody sees it. The NBA really needs to do something about players like Rose, Westbrook, Durant, Wade etc that create 100 percent of the contact to get free throws. Players should not be allowed to literally kick or jump into players who aren't coming towards them and get free throws. It's a horseshit system and players like Durant and Westbrook abuse it all game long.

I want Drummond to play 30 mpg already. What does he have to do to earn some more time?

It is interesting that his RAPM sucks though, especially defensively. I don't know enough about the stat to know what aberrations are common and why, but from the looks of it you'd think he'd be well into the + there.

Really not with you guys that this has been some abomination of officiating. That foul with Gallo on Westbrook is getting called 50% of the time no matter who it is (maybe more, it generally leans towards the offense getting bailed there), and the Ibaka play on Faried was not some egregious foul by any means. They could've called it, but it would have been very petty. They just went at it at the same time and Faried got off balance and launched.

Some ticky fouls here and there, but from the uproar in here you'd think it was Kings/Lakers in the playoffs.

If Denver is smart... let the clock get to 1-2 seconds and foul before they can jack up a 3. Then you can hit first free throw, purposely miss second to burn the clock out for the win. Bad idea to give OKC a shot at a 3. Denver will not win a 2nd OT.
