The Mavs are without Dirk and Marion and it looks like they are going to try and go big against the Knicks. Camby is back. Will the Knicks go 4-0? Comment as the game goes on below.
Lamar Odom will not be playing any more games this season.
For those of you who haven’t been following this tragic story let me fill you in. Lamar Odom was completely confused and very butthurt that the Lakers would actually have the nerve to try and get the best point guard in the league. He then demanded a trade and was lucky enough to go to the defending champions, the Dallas Mavericks. He then pouted his way to the worst season of his career, took some time off to pout and cook his wife some large meals and came back even worse. Dallas decided it’s not even worth playing him at all anymore so for now on the box score will read Lamar Odom – DNP-SAD.
5. Kobe Bryant chasing the all-time points record -
Right now Kobe is 6th all-time in points scored (8th if you count ABA). He’s 10,519 points away from breaking Kareem’s record. Love him or hate him it’s exciting when all-time records are in danger of being broken. The record is in play, but he’d have to play 5 more years, averaging 80 games and 25 points to break the record. Skip a year and he’d have to either have a season like that at 39 or play into his 40′s at a slightly less productive level to even sniff the record. In other words this lockout might lower his ceiling to 3rd all-time. Still impressive but doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
4. The Knicks -
We said as a joke when we started this blog/podcast that the Knicks would finally get a good team and then there wouldn’t be an NBA. Fast forward 12 months and we get Amar’e Stoudemire, Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony. Then we make the playoffs for the first time in 7 years. Then….NO DAMN SEASON. It’s just not fair. I’m not delusional, this team needs a lot of work to be a contender but they are at least relevant and competitive now. I’d like to see a season or two of it before Amar’es knees explode.
