Yay, the game is on at a normal time tonight! In case you haven’t realized, tonight’s game is kind of a big deal. Will be be in 9th by the end of the night or will we all sleep just a little bit better tonight knowing our chances of making the playoffs have significantly increased?
Who’s going to have a big game? Who’s going to make me pull my (remaining) hair out? Post your comments below!
Post your comments here for tonights game. My first comment is, why is this game on so late? Hopefully it’s an exciting game, if not I’ll be posting with you until I pass out.
To avoid spam I have the site set to approve the first post from all new posters, but once you’re approved you can post as much as you want without waiting.
The season is half over so I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at how each team has fared so far and give them mid-season grades.
Let’s start with the Eastern Conference, going in order of current standing.
Miami Heat: A+: The East is as predictable as the West is unpredictable. I don’t think there’s a person on the planet who didn’t think Miami and Chicago would be the top 2 teams. LeBron is having his best season as a professional and has also managed to stay away from twitter, interviews, hour-long specials, and every other way he put his foot in his mouth last season. The supporting cast is much better this year after signing Battier, getting a steal in Norris Cole in the draft, and having a healthy Haslem and Miller. The road to the finals goes through Miami.
Chicago Bulls: A+: Only one game out of first and that’s with Rose missing a bunch of games. It doesn’t seem to matter who replaces Rose, they continued to win with John Lucas III and Mike James at the point. The best defense in the league and a deep bench. We should really just start the east playoffs with the conference finals, Chicago and Miami are so much better than the rest of the conference it’s almost unfair.
Indiana Pacers: A: This year’s most improved team. People barely talked about the David West signing, that was a very underrated move. You won’t seem them on national TV very often, so they’ve been flying under the radar and have quietly moved up to the #3 seed. This is a young team that’s is in a great situation cap-wise. They’ll need that cap space to make a move to put them in the same league with the top two teams in the conference, but even without making a move, as presently constructed they’ll be a tough out for years to come.
