    12-1

    Still not convinced with their D but I expect it to get better as time goes on. It doesn't matter if Kobe has off night anymore.. there's too many weapons and people are stepping up into their respective roles.

    True testament will be the first game vs. the Celtics though.

    i still haven't seen this team play a complete game yet

    they either start slow and blow teams out later or they blow them out early and let their foot off the gas

    i'll take the 12-1 start though any time

    That's what I'm saying. For as bad as they been playing, they're still up there and are possibly (I hate to do this, but right now I think Boston might be) the best team. Ariza has been a fucking gem. Duke is doing it on both ends. I didn't think he would have as much an impact on the Offensive end as he has.

    Bynum still has not impressed me and I think him and Gasol need to run that hi-low a little more.

    nah boston the best team 'til there's a new champ, then they're the best team next year, and so on...that's just how i always felt when it comes to that in every sport...

    but yea arizas been a gem...but LO coming off the bench has made him better believe it or not..53% FG, 50% 3pt, 10 ppg, 6 reb....we got 3 players in LO, farmar and ariza that could be in contention for sixth man of the year

    and as for bynum...to me he's doing his job...manning the middle, 2nd in the league in blocked shots..shooting over 50%, 10 reb, 11 ppg...he's still getting his legs and learning how to play with pau...i think we'll get the 17 points, 12 reb, 3 blk #s late december when he's fully acclimated

    you speak truth. i think i'm just getting on bynum's case too early.

    and how could i forget LO. it ain't even LO anymore... this dude is more efficient and deadlier, in my estimation. that's what happens when a should be perennial all-star plays against second stringers.

    how anyone could be on bynum's case is a mystery to me, the guy has already far surpassed expectations for him entering the league. he's gonna be a star for years. hes still very young and coming off a year with season ending injury, give em a break

    they wanna lock up home court throughout

    which means they wont let up even if they clinch the #1 seed out west early

    boston and cleveland aint going away and will push 60-65 wins as well so 70 wins isn't as far fetched as some believe

    considering that the west is just off to a terrible start, it's definitely possible
