Final Thoughts on the 2010-11 NBA Season Part 2

The What Could Have Beens:

A number of teams were derailed by injuries.

Golden State Warriors – Couldn’t help but think that with a healthy David Lee and Andris Biedrins they would have at least been within striking distance of the 8th seed.  Lee wasn’t the same after Wilson Chandler went all True Blood on him.

Cleveland Cavaliers – We knew after LeBron left they would be bad.  But this was still a team that won over 120 games the last 2 seasons.  How did they fall so hard?  Well at one point in the season Danial Gibson, Antawn Jamison, Anthony Parker, and Anderson Varejao, you know, pretty much their starting lineup were all injured at once.  They were pretty much a D-league team 3/4 of the way through the season.  And not a good D-league team.

Milwaukee Bucks – Delfino, Jennings, Redd and Bogut missed a ton of time.  Salmons also got that virus a lot of people get right after they sign a big contract.  It usually lasts until about a year before the contract is up. Continue reading

Episode 32: It was the Glasses

Jay and Marc recap the last two games vs. the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat and talk about what to expect in the Detroit Pistons game.  We try to figure out who is going to play if Chandler, Stoudemire and Williams are all out, what happens in practice, if Mozgov is ready to get some minutes again, and if Roger Mason is going to hit a shot to double his shooting percentage.  We go over some ridiculous Miami Heat articles and top it all off with an interview with Stan from KnicksKnotes.com  Download Episode 32
