Oh, and Joakim Noah is

Oh, and Joakim Noah is better than Varejao. He's more talented (not that he's really that talented) offensively, especially on the low block, he is a better post defender, and he is a very underrated passer. Varejao is stronger and a better mid-range player, but that's where it ends IMO. They both have high motors, so I consider that a push.

Of course Mikenike lol.

Of course Mikenike lol. We're good. I'm still waiting on that rematch at 2K10. I've been playing with LeBron and it's not even fair. 60 game winning streak over the last month or so.

The Bulls are hitting the Cavs right back. I know LeBron has hit some three's, but I don't care... You don't jump off of your feet defending him behind the three-point line. Just get a hand up. If he makes it, you live with it. Bad foul by Noah.

I have to get back into video games and play 2k10 or get 2k11 learn it and then we'll have a draft.net invitational, or ya'll can create it on your own.

I was skeptical about

I was skeptical about playing online at first, but gave it a try when NBA 2K9 came out so I could play my brother who moved away for college. I got hooked and have been playing ever since. It's coo to do on days you have nothing to do.

On another quick note... When LeBron hits a few three's, he starts to get too dependent on them. He needs to drive the lane and get to the line. Is it a coincidence that he's settling for three's on a night he's not shooting well from the free-throw line? Not trying to start anything Mikenike... Just asking.

Another missed free-throw by

Another missed free-throw by LeBron. Let's see how LeBron plays if this game gets REALLY close down the stretch. Let's see if he drives to get to the line or if he keeps settling for the jumpshot.

Kirk Hinrich is cash money

Kirk Hinrich is cash money in the bank this game.

Lebron has gotten to the basket the last 2 plays and gotten and-1's, one in transition and another on a blow-by. Taking what you said to heart ButlerBulldogs lol.

He's taken it to the basket

He's taken it to the basket the last two times, so maybe that's what we'll see more of down the stretch.

As good as Lebron is, he

As good as Lebron is, he poor FT shooting drives me nuts. He should be an 82-85% FT shooter, not a 77% foul shooter. Also, for the amount of times he gets to the line in a game he would have many more points.

Tezo...LeBron has a tendency

Tezo...LeBron has a tendency when he thinks he is hot not after three consecutive jumpers but one...I also think he should mix it up more

And yes he needs improve his free throw shooting...76 percent aint bad but he needs to get to that Kobe, Jordan, and Melo mid 80's percent for me

I think Rose is near unguardable, so I'll take pleasure in watching LeBron try to defend him in these final moments.

Derrick Rose continues to

Derrick Rose continues to show why he has the best floater in the NBA IMO. He has some of the best handles I've ever seen. His hesitation dribble is sick

And yea, you can put Rose in

And yea, you can put Rose in the same company as Tony Parker and Chris Paul as far as tear drops go.

Rose has the best hesitation/change of pace moves in the league. I've noticed a lot of players starting to bite his moves. He has one move where he comes down at full speed, pauses for a second/switches to the other hand and just explodes. He was the first player I ever saw do it.

If the Cavs win this game it's not because they won it, it is because the Bulls lost it. Plain and Simple.

Big free-throws here by Deng. Cavs have no timeouts so they'll have to go full court.
