Instead of pursuing the No.1 overall seed in the playoffs?

Cleveland won't be losing anytime soon and our guys look tired...should we just focus on entering the playoffs healthy since we captured the NO.1 seed in the west?

Yes. Get some rest for our starters, keep winnning, but now it doesn't matter if we drop one or two games out of those remaining. Cleveland will have the best overall record now, that's a given.

Morrison should get some pt, made he can catch a little fire and it would help spread the floor.

yes, kobe needs the rest, also pau, but kobe more, he has a lot of injuries that are affecting his game. they won't catch the cavs and it's only 10 games, it's better to have a healthy kobe for the playoffs than a kobe that playing like he is right now.

Cavs aren't going to make it out anyways. LeBron's team isn't good enough.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Idgaf, honestly, about HC in the Finals..it would be greater challenge for the role players to man up and have a big game for us on the road. If Boston has HC, when we sweep them, it'll be on our home floor :)

PLUS it gives us an oppurtunity to have an edge in the series..we steal one of the first two in Boston/Cleveland, and we have 3 in a row at home to finish it off..or we can steal another[game 6]

If Boston makes it, we have a better rec than them anyways..I think Cleveland chokes in ECF

EDIT: I'm sorry, someone posted something like this, i looked for a similar topic, but i didn't find it until after i posted this one, if you want to delete it, that's fine....also why don't you allow us to delete the topics we make? it would be easier for us to delete topics that we didn't see and see later on, less work for you guys

It's not a good idea if members can delete topics, but you can delete posts.

We can merge topics and post. I'll merge this with the other thread.

Why give up when we still have a chance to get HCA in the finals?

We're only 2 games behind. The Cavs have play Orlando, Detroit, San Antonio, and Boston.

I agree with the notion that Farmar and Vujacic should be benched in favor of Brown and Morrison. One, because it will light a fire under their asses, and two, because Brown and Morisson will probably give us better production the other two because they'll be more likely to run the offense through Pau. Morisson can then get his open looks and Brown can get his lanes to the basket.

We need some kind of change, because playing like this won't get us far.

Cavs aren't going to make it out anyways. LeBron's team isn't good enough.



they are good enough, they have a lot of confidence in their game. boston is the only team in the east that can give them a fight, but boston is not good on the road, so the cavs will make it to the finals.

We should probably rest our starters a little more. This wouldn't be much of a problem if the bench didn't lose the lead all the time.

Yes.. I see the Cavs losing to the Celtics, and the Lakers will be having homecourt against them.

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

Most of their games at home, though.
