, all the time

slightly off topic, but I just read in the other thread the awful news regarding Allen's contract(No team option for next year!). I am Beyond annoyed by this, someone should get fired for that slip up. Anyways, does anyone know, is he at least is a restricted FA next year?

He's restricted. Same thing happened w/ Wes Matthews a couple years back. RFA after his rookie year and immediately cashed in w/ Portland. Utah didn't match (they matched for Millsap the year before, and Portland really made that contract like a poison pill for the Jazz).

The fact that this has happened before makes the situation even more embarrassing for the Sixers, right? Just inexplicable stupidity from them. I think the FO really intended for this to be a sympathy pick.

Or...courtesy pick, I should say.

Iguodala should have an advantage over anyone they put in front of him tonight. Actually, They dont have any players besides Kobe that can guard any of our perimiter players. If the bigs can keep Gasol in check this should be an easy win.

Hmm...there's something wrong with this comment

Oh right

Andrew Bynum

remember him?

I'm more worried about Gasol vs Allen/Thad/Voose. He has an advantage over all three of them. Hawes/Voose matchup better with Bynum.

Sure they do - he's physical - they're not - he can play close to the basket - they can't.

He'll kill them if the lakers pass to him

love that the boys on the Depressed Fan team find Kapono to be a worthless bball player. Couldn't agree more!

To me the LA bigs play excellent D close to the basket. Step out a few feet and they become less effective. If Hawes, Allen, Voos, and Tony find their inside mid-range they could create problems for Bynum and Gasol.

Hey brian are you here? Just saw a dude who looks just like you behind the sixer bench?

Nope, I'm watching from Brooklyn.

BROOKLYN QUEENS

Sorry, had to get that out

I really hope the MSG PA guy uses that when the Nets move to Brooklyn :)

Gee, you don't like any centers in the NBA. If he's the second, who's the first? You said Howard wasn't the best center in the NBA in the Orlando thread last week.

Howard is perceived as the best center in the NBA

I like Andrew Bynum fine - the facts are the facts -

A. He hasn't made it through a full season healthy yet
B. The 'my team' thing is common knowledge in the LA Laker aera (of which santa barbara is considered part of)

Andrew Bynum is a great player when healthy, so is Eric Gordon, but he doesn't stay healthy.

And the Lakers have internal strife, so they aren't going to trade him for Howard unless Jerry (buss) takes back over

I like Bynum fine - I'm not sure why presenting you with facts is hatred - i'd love him on the sixers - but it has no chance of happening

Why is Jrue sitting now?

Doug hates him

Henry Abbot on Tiwtter watching the game

Good work on the bigs so far. 11 points on 11 shots and 4 turnovers. Kobe's not going to pass to them in the second half at this rate :)

Ha yeah I know. I'm from Swarthmore and went to Strath Haven. Lower Merion was never really good at any sports (maybe soccer) until Kobe came along, and then all of a sudden they won the state championship twice.

Lower Merion was VERY good at soccer when i was there (late 80s) won state once I think (We hated Strah Haven - those boys beat us often) and was good at lacrosse too...sucked at football and basketball in the 80s.

Holy hell can Kobe shoot

Shit Jrue, gotta hit that.

EB is missed tonight.

PHI 46, LAL 50 at the half.

Kobe's 24 points wouldn't matter one bit if they could grab a blessed defensive board. Only down 4. Clean it up in the second half and this is a double-digit win.

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Feb 6 at 20:07
+/-

Not much else to say but, put a body on somebody and keep Iguodala glued to Bryant.

Still being in this game after Kobe went nuts and getting destroyed on the glass is good sign, right? ...

Yes.

That's a very discouraging effort from anybody who played the 4 and 5 positions. Hawes was really a zero on both ends. I hope he doesn't blame it on injuries.

He won't but his supporters will.

Lavoy needs to stay out of foul trouble. He's actually got the strength to box them out a little bit.

Defensive rebounding rate in the first half: 40.9%.

That's probably not going to cut it. Forget doubling Bryant, just concentrate on the glass and you'll be fine.

Stat of the half: Lakers have one less offensive rebound than the sixers have rebounds.

If you want to look at the glass half-full. 16 assists to only 2 turnovers for the Sixers.

Sixers can keep this close if they force another eight turnovers, keep theirs down, and do just a tad-bit better at grabbing a damn rebound.

They can't possibly do worse.

True. Spencer's bricked-jumper to box-out-fail ratio is pretty low right now. He's going to have to step it up.

Atlanta down 16 to the suns. I wonder if they will become indifferent to winning similar to last season.

Honestly, that shot chart for Kobe is fine by me. He was unbelievably hot, but I want him taking those shots.

Maybe Thad/Lou can.

Iggy has the athletisism but not the skill

Annnnnnd he's heavy with it. brick

JESUS - you let matt barnes get his own miss - WHAT THE HELL

Lazy, Lou. Fuck me.

Collins pulls Turner to quick

It's his fault no one can defend the big men and Lou can't pass like a man

Stop doubling Kobe now, and start doubling the bigs. They're just murdering our "bigs."

The problem is that the lakers are very good at finding the open man off the double (as opposed to the sixers who are often befuddled when they are doubled - infrequently)

Exactly 6 pts scored in exactly 6 minutes. Geez.

Really hope he bails us out, but Lou is hurting the team. Probably shouldn't be in the game.

How bad does Hawes have to be before Allen gets to come back in?

Let's not over value the rookie - he's not going to stop bynum or gasol either

Hawes and Lou should be on the bench right now

Well, if Iguodala catches fire, I won't complain. Stops.

Sixers got the lead on turnovers - the lakers have stopped turning it over

Split the pair?

Yep. Fuck me.

No movement on offense right now. Dammit. Terrible possessions.

Def Reb% still below 50

Old man Fisher, Lou gets stuck to a screen. Not good.

You are a useless piece of shit, Hawes.

Wow Spencer - you're the shortest 7 footer ever aren't you?

Hawes is getting murdered.

I still hate him

Yeah - so do i - just saying :)

Lou puts up a better fight against the lob than spencer does

You suck spencer

Not only should they get Hawes out of the game, they should get him out of the building.

Make Kobe take those fucking shots, and for fuck's sake, grab a rebound.

Hell yeah, good call on Kobe pushing off!!!

Andre forces a bad shot by kobe and andrew gets the rebound - jesus - but offensive foul on kobe - bails em out

Fuck Dwight Howard

Get Andrew bynum :)

This game makes you realize just how important Brand is to this team right now. He neutralized Dwight Howard on the offensive glass almost completely, now they can't stop Bynum from getting to the ball.

No - I don't really think you're accurate with that statement

He wouldn't stop bynum

I really, really don't understand why Doug plays Hawes over Battie right now. The vet would at least try to box out Bynum. And Hawes isn't contributing on the offensive end either. So what's the point?

Dang.

why has hawes been given the ability of height if he can't even fucking use it? all he really has to do is box out, and he's not even doing that.

What kind of fucking boxout was that

Kobe is doing his best to shoot them out of the game, just grab a motherfucking rebound.

Hawes - you suck - can't jump AND short arms - they played good defense and you sucked it up

hawes just fouled on a box out? what is wrong with him tonight?!

He fouled on a box out in which he had position on gasol - gasol just reached over his short but big head - then hawes shoved him - but kobe is trying not to be shown up by lou williams - kobe still has to be the 'closer'

Well, I'll be. Good coaching Doug! Way to go LoU!

Seriously, fuck you Hawes. Fuck you.

Lou williams gets POTG (if they win) for the last 3 minutes :)

Umm...I guess this is "good" Lou?

Awesome. Give it up for AI9 for that D too.

Hopefully this can solidify Lou's status as the team's closer.

There's no such thing in general and lou is too inconsistent - don't get caught up in the moment -

I've been saying all season that Lou and not Iguodala needs to be the guy with the ball in his hands at the end.

I'm thrilled for you - I don't think anyone disagreed with you - and lou has off games as well - the closer thing is an asinine concept - run your offense

Don't fucking let up now. They're going to run a play for a dunk look here. Break it up.

Lou was huge, to me, before this run, he was the only one that was getting to the line.

The think that pisses me the most about andre is when he stakes himself out of the play arguing with the refs - just did it again

An then lou with an AWFUL shot

Get this hoop and it's over. Come on!!

Voose with the biggest rebound all game

make your free throws

Let IGuodala inbound the ball. Get the ball to Lou, Jrue or Meeks. They have to foul. Don't fuck around.

Man i hate the rocky music

Get Hawes the fuck out of the game. Go small.

Damnit.
