The NBA Poll Question
dang they changed it! But the poll earlier went like this: Which team will be handed their first defeat?
Well, the two teams just got their first losses of the season... Nuggets bowed to the Heat while the Celtics were upset by the Suns... Both teams that beat them have a knack for fire...LOL
i watched the suns/celtics game, and the suns look legit. They never had any problems running their offense to the tune of 110 pts against the celtics. JRich was on fire and amare was super efficient. Nash was running the show and Dragic looks like he might be better then i thought eventually.
Yeah how bout dem Heat. They actually have team chemistry and they're healthy. As for Phoenix I don't know what the hell they did to get good.
I think that was key for the Suns this year. They didn't make the playoffs last year and now they don't have Shaq, they are ready for a run especially when they acquired solid players like Channing Frye...
Jermaine O'Neal has really impressed me so far... I lost a lot of confidence in him but he seems to be back in the groove... He has shown that capability to be a D-Wade sidekick along with Beasley... Though he will no longer be the JO of old where he was dominant, still, you could see that he's doing a lot better than the last 3 years.
i truly believe the suns benefit from losing Shaq and the cavs will suffer from having signed him. He doesn't run, doesn't play good defense other then on his own man down low and he takes up spaceon offense which is not always a good thing. Also I feel teams feel obligated to get him involved. The suns look so much more free with him gone.
I agree 100% with that llperez. The Suns are playing so much better with Channing Frye at the center. Stoudemire now has more space than ever to operate in the post. Their offense is firing on all cylinders.
LeBron on the other hand is shooting more jumpshots this season. In my opinion it's because Shaq has the lane clogged.
