I hope so. But he is playing like a MVP right now and nowitzky is not producing. Hopefully things will change from game 3.

Yea the the fan base they have... if the player cannot do that for them, they will do it for themsleves... throw chair, beer cups , fist fighting, (and yeaterday) coins, whatever you have in your pocket to prevent opponent star players.... they will do their part.

I heard Larry Brown (Pistons Coach) is interested in the Lakers Job.

April 27, 2005, 12:28 PM
Larry Brown is a great coach. He is more of a teacher than a business style coach in my opinion. Look how he transformed pacers then sixers. Are pat o'reily and phil jackson still around?

Fazal
April 27, 2005, 12:33 PM
Yea Larry Brown is a great coach and great teacher of the game. But he also has a Dav (Dadar) Disease. That’s the negative part.

How many NBA teams he coached so far?

Phil Jackson will return to NBA next season. Not sure which team though. He is currently talking to Nicks and Lakers.

Celtics have no chance in the playoff. Even If they are lucky enough to win against indiana, they wont get pass the pistons in the next round.

Once is the correct word. After Jordan retired they were really bad (worse than the raptors.... lol). Well finally after a long wait they made it back into the playoffs. They lead their series 2-0 currently.

Nash left as a free agent. He was not traded. He was not gonna go back to Dallas. It was Phoenix that got him in the end.


If only Raptors had enough money to get him.

Faceoff
April 30, 2005, 02:46 PM
Cuban would have loved to keep nash but the offer he got from pheonix was unblievable, alomost a difference of $10 million. So if cuban signed nash then he couldn't signed eric dampier because of the salary cap issues. It was a difficult decision but I thought he made the right choice. Its tough to let players like nash go but in the long run it will be good for the mavs.

howzatt!
May 1, 2005, 01:38 AM
i don't agree with Centre Half-Forward here. cuban had the last say about nash's transfer to phoenix. nash said he was gonna give priority to dallas if cuban matched or atleast payed close to what phoenix suns were paying him and gave him a long term (atleast 5 years) contract. after phoenix made their offer, nash called cuban and told him what they were gonna pay him, cuban said he would love to keep nash, but he couldn't match phoenix's offer and a long term contract considering nash's age. only after that nash decided to go to phoenix.
I do agree with faceoff, that even though nash is an MVP candidate this season, in the long term the decision to let nash go will payoff positively for dallas.

Well the regular season MVP is named and Steve Nash of the Suns wins by 34 points the 4th closest margin ever. He is the first Canadian (there are only 2 playing) to win this award.

Mav
May 15, 2005, 02:17 AM
Its 2-1 now.

How many of you think Mavs will win over Pheonix. I haven`t seen many passes or anyone like a game winner in Mavericks. Nowitzki is out of form......

We are in for some good basketball with 2 of the best teams.
