WINNERS and LOSERS: NBA Edition
Blink and we’ll already by a quarter the way though the 2012-13 NBA regular season. Let’s take a look at some winners and losers so far.
WINNERS: The Heat for splurging on Ray Allen who will contend for sixth man of the year. I predict Allen still has enough in the tank for a few Jesus Shuttleworth dunks come playoff time.
LOSERS: The Celtics for letting Allen walk and then bringing in Jason Terry, “the poor man’s Ray Allen.”
LOSERS: The Milwaukee Bucks when Ersan Ilysova is starting.
WINNERS: The Milwaukee Bucks when Ersan Ilysova comes off the bench.
WINNERS: Phil Jackson bashers who got to watch him get punk’d by the Lakers.
LOSERS: The Lakers assembly of high-priced players; standing around and watching Kobe Bryant continue to put up 20+ shots per game.
WINNERS: James Harden and the Houston Rockets, he may not get a ring in the next couple of years, but nothing is guaranteed. Current ring count: James Harden 0, Kevin Durant 0.
WINNERS: The Oklahoma City Thunder getting along just fine with Kevin Martin playing the role of James Harden.
WINNERS: The Memphis Grizzlies and the giant chip on their shoulder.
LOSERS: The NBA writers and bloggers who predicted the demise of the Memphis Grizzlies.
LOSERS: The Dallas Mavericks for not resigning Tyson Chandler. Sure, it’s been two years, but this one still hurts each time you watch them play.
WINNERS: Mark Cuban for his work on ‘Shark Tank.’
LOSERS: The Philadelphia 76ers and their one year rental of Andrew Bynum who does not have a timeline for his return.
WINNERS: Andrew Bynum’s hair-do. Good stuff!
WINNERS: The Brooklyn Nets uniforms
LOSERS: The “Nets” bandwagon fans who pretend they supported the team in New Jersey.
WINNERS: The New York Knicks!
LOSERS: Amar’e bashers – NEWS FLASH: Stoudemire being inactive is not the reason for their success.
WINNERS: Vinny Del Negro (still currently employed at time of writing).
WINNERS: The Minnesota Timberwolves with the return of Kevin Love.
LOSERS: The Indiana Pacers tumbling after the loss of Danny Granger.
LOSERS: The Washington Wizards horrendous start.
WINNERS: The Charlotte Bobcats two over .500 after 12 games. Executive of the year: Michael Jordan?
LOSERS: NBA writers and bloggers campaigning for Michael Jordan as Executive of the year.
