    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

    The Brow went off for 53 against el Sol tonight, with 18 boards and 5 blocks. I thought the Pels were done after Boogie got hurt, but now they've won 6 in a row and are tied for 5th in the west. Jru Holiday has been playing his butt off too.

    Yep. Besides AD playing lights out, Jrue has been going off, Rondo’s been steady, and adding Okafor and Mirotic have been solid additions for Def/rebounding, and an occasional basket when needed. Esp. Okafor. Tied for 5th in West now heading into SA. If we beat SA, we’ll be 1/2 game back of them. Been excited about them in the past, only to be let down. Hopefully, they’ll continue the current progress and streak.
