    I'd also like to know why jj didn't play. Rotowire says hes out of condition since the chest cold. Would explain why he faded so hard after that first q vs the kittens yesterday

    cavs thinking of shutting down Kyrie....Deron has effectively told the nets he won't be back (with a quarter of a season still to play)....we might not even be in the top ten picks

    I guess, realistically, we are not going to catch the bucks or the wolves, so 9th worst is about as bad as we can do. 9th, standing wise. We could theoretically drop to 12th if the top three picks are won by teams better than that but that's worst case and not likely to happen (which means it probably will)

    It is starting to look like the Raptors are going to pick top 3 (i.e. lottery luck) or 8-10 range as Tanking Season is officially underway in NJ, GS, and CLE.

    Likely lots of talent to choose from at the 9 slot like P Jones, T. Jones, Sullinger, Lamb, Henson, T. Zeller, Lillard, Marshall and so forth. Just win, baby!

    agree...although hard to say GS is tanking..they don't own their pick thanks to some terrible trade years ago (it since has been sent to Utah in NJ's curious habit of trading away draft picks....they could conceivably have traded away the 4th and 8th picks in this years draft for...gerald wallace et al). Then again, it is top 7 protected so a serious tank might be on. Would be ironic if they get #8.

    Which is why I think the tank is on in GS. They are now tied for 7th worst. They could end up 5th worst when it is all said and done and have a nice cushion of having the low statical odds that 3 teams 6 or higher end up in the top 3 and thus bumping them to 8 - or they could finish 4th worse (only Charlotte, New Orleans, and Washington worse) and guarantee a selection no lower than 7th.

    Matt, say it isn't so! :-)

    Holiday sounds intriguing.

    It seems Casey wanted a better look at Anderson, and that he also wanted to send a message to JJ. "Internal affair."

    Anderson got the start in place of James Johnson who was held out of the game by Dwane Casey for what both men are calling an “internal matter.”

    Casey said the move was as much about getting a good look at Anderson as it was about sending a message to Johnson.

    Johnson, who politely declined to shed any more light on the situation, said it was a case of him “paying his dues.”

    Johnson said he was unsure whether his debt had been paid.

    “Whatever he thinks I deserve,” Johnson said. “I just have to deal with it like a man.”

    Eddy D is more bouncy and energetic at times but he needs to bring that consistently. Andwith JJ i think its cause he has made some bad decisions with the ball. Like sometimes he just throws up a shot after an offensive rebound instead of throwing it back out. or he tries to do a little too much on defense. Who knows
