Magic Johnson was quoted to have said that LeBron James will signed with the New York Knicks. Just one thought here: who cares what Magic Johnson says about anything?
The Philadelphia 76ers have suffered their 12th straight lose in a row by losing to the Houston Rockets last night. The Sixers had three guys with ten plus rebounds (Samuel Dalembert, Thaddeus Young, and Elton Brand); good. Of the 11 Sixers to see action, only two shot 50% or better (aforementioned Young and Andre Iguodala); bad.
Both the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers won. So much for "time for the mighty to fall".
The good game of the night was the Cleveland Cavaliers playing the Portland Trailblazers. The Cavs almost lost the game until something happened. The Cavs remembered that LaMarcus Aldridge hates rebounding (second coming of Mark Blount), and they realized that if Anderson Varajao could match La-Aldridge, they'd have them.
Aldridge: 22pts, 2rebs, an assist and a steal...
Varajao: 22pts, 10rebs, an assist, a block and two steals. Cleveland wins: of course, out-shooting and out-rebounding the other teams helps too.
Shaq getting poked in the eye = Shaq getting angry and vengeful.
The Toronto Raptors picked up Hedo Turkoglu some months ago. The Atlanta Hawks picked up Jamal Crawford some months ago. Toronto is still a sub-.500 team. Atlanta is one of the best teams this season. Last night, they fight... who wins?
