    This year's NBA all star game won't be East vs West. Instead, Steph Curry and LeBron as captains chose sides like kids do on the playground. LeBron's team has Durant and also Westbrook. Kyrie Irving will also be on LeBron's team. Could get interesting. I don't know who is on Curry's team.

    You talking about Boogie? Pelicans have no luck at all. Cousins was averaging 25.2ppg, 12.9rpg and 5.4apg. In the last 50 years, only 4 players have averaged better than 25/10/5 for a season, and every one won the MVP. (Westbrook last year, Barkley in '93, Bird in '85, Kareem in '76)

    Boogie and Davis were both pick to start the all star game.. Westbrook, Barkley, Bird and Kareem is some damned good company to be in.

    Shows how poorly we're coached. Only team with two All-Star starters in the league and it took a six-game winning streak to be where we're at (27-21).

    Two devastating losses back to back. Boogie for the Pels and then Dre for the Thunder. Wow. I don't know how far the Pels would have gotten with him but it finally looked like the Thunder were getting it to click and bam. This is going to hurt! Not sure who Presti will get to try and replace him but we shall see. Always next year! If we can keep PG13
