To be on the verge of the playoffs is amazing for them and definately is another showing that Steve Nash is one of the greatest players of this era, especially in making others better. He is up there with Magic, Bird and Kidd in making others on his team better.


agreed. nash is like a fine wine, getting better with age...... #lamecliches

Don't like it, nothing special. Best of luck to them though.

TWolves continue the racial purging by waiving Martell Webster.

Am I the only one that really likes The Suns' front court pairing of Scola and Gortat? Comparing them to our front court, I'd definitely prefer Bogut over Gortat, but not sure who I'd prefer between Scola and Lee. Offensively they're really similar. Both can finish with both hands, but I'm sure Scola can play D better than Lee. Has anyone watched Scola extensively that can give me the inside scoop?

Yea definetly don't see the Wolves making the playoffs, they will knock but the reality is the west is too deep. I think they are really just getting the best available players that fit their squad, and they all seem to be white. lol

Barnes sounds like Tiger Woods from Chappelle show, straight up.

Could work well for Phoenix and I hope for them it does, but not for us, same division. I've only seen Scola a few times in the last few years and he doesn't seem much better than Lee overall, but his defense is a little better, though doesn't seem great. They definately did well this offseason Phoenix, but they still need another guard, a good SG to complete their starting five.

I don't like the pairing of gortat and scola. I would much rather have our front court any day over theirs.

Game 1 we'll be able to watch and see who's got the better front court. I like Bogut, Lee combo way better then Gortat, Scola. Our bench bigs are better then theirs too. Sure Frye can knock down some 3's, but would rather have the thoughness and inside presence of Landry and Ezeli.

Frye's ability to hit the outside shot is definately a great weapon, probably better than Landry's scoring ability. Landry will have to rebound well to be a major asset, otherwise he is just good.

I love Scola's tenacity and defence but Lee is better on offence. Bogut has it all over Gortat in every way. I'd rather little Landry than Frye. Frye is soft.
