Melo has 5 stitches and is a game time decision. Can the Knicks still beat the Heatles and keep their 1st place lead? Comment below as the game goes on.
Will this be the last game of the season? We went a game without losing a player to injury, will we bring that streak to 2? I’ll start this thread out on a positive note; we weren’t the first team to get eliminated from the playoffs. Thank you Dallas!
Chandler might not play today. Good thing the Heatles don’t have a center either. Predictions? Do we steal one on the road today? Does LeBron fade in the 4th, does Bosh cry, does Shump shut Wade down?
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.

Well at least the Heat play well against the teams they ARE NOT going to face in the playoffs. It has to be tough to be Lebron and realize that you actually had a better chance to win a title with last year’s Cavs. And, their new addition Bibby played 11 minutes and scored zero points. I guess he will be the difference maker for this club. It is going to be real tough for the Heatles to do anything in the playoffs with a bench that makes the Knicks bench look like the dream team.
The Knicks may have hit rock bottom last night but at least the Lebron & Co. are looking like a worse and worse experiment every day. It seems like Lebron at this point would have had a better shot at a title if he just resigned with Cleveland.
The Heatles dominated the first half against Orlando. Then they completely forgot that there was a 2nd half.
