Pekovic has been beasting it up lately. It took Milicic to get injured for his coach to give him a chance... typical NBA coach not trusting Europeans.

And his rebounding in NBA is better than in Europe, where he mainly had the job of boxing out.
Respect and thanks for everything: Alvertis, Bodiroga, Jasikevicius, Radja, Wilkins, Vrankovic, Fotsis, Rebraca, Kattash, Gentile, Koch, Middleton, Kutluay, Rogers, Papadopoulos, Becirovic, Tomasevic, Siskauskas, Pekovic, Lakovic, Vujanic, Chatzivrettas, Maljkovic, Spanoulis and many more to follow in the near future.

Pekovic needs just a bit of trust and he will be one of the very best centers in the league.

LeBron is so awesome that he put the East back in the game almost by himself!!! :thup:
Although, he did another mistake in clutch time. :(

For me the best player in the world right now is Kevin Durant, and he was MVP. So, perfect match.

Durant is the better scorer but LeBron is the best all-around player.
He has one of the best seasons ever.
He's #1(this year) in offensive and defensive win shares.
He's top-5 in FG% being the only non-big man in the top seeds.

He just does it all.
He has no weakness, except clutch time but a game lasts for 48 minutes.
He's the best.

The heat are finally playing team basketball yet they still get negative criticism. If Haslem makes that shot it would give him confidence to play better. Now Haslem knows tat his star player believes in him. So it is positive for the team. The funniest thing about the video is the UTAH crowd acting like they won a playoff game. lol It is only a regular season game! Although with the short season every game matters!Jazz need all the wins they can get.

LeBron tried to do too much in the Finals last year and got ripped apart for it. Now Haslem was wide open, LeBron makes the pass and gets crucified for it by the media. This is ridiculous. If LeBron drives and gets shut down he would have been blasted for not passing to an open teammate. He absolutely did the right thing and if Haslem isn't capable of making a wide open 16 footer he has no business being on the court at the end of the game (and that is on Spoelstra's shoulders, not Lebron's).

I should say that I hate the Heat and everything they stand for but a Heat vs. Thunder Finals would be the best matchup of recent memory.

Yeah but he didn't pass to a guard in the mid or long range... or to a big guy under the rim... he passed to a big guy in the mid range... not the best chances of getting it down... he is not Garnett (old one) or Love or even Bosh to hit that with good chances...

Anyway, it was a relief... I'm kinda sick of NBA stars taking the last shot no matter what, no matter the circumstances, no matter how tough the shot is.

Pekovič surprised me. He's tough as rock, but not that fast and not so high. And yes it's interesting that Pekovič in NBA is rebounding monster and he was not doing that in PAO. I know he kinda worked for other guys to grab it, but still, he's playing with Love around and that guy would kill to rebound :)

For me, Pekovič is the biggest surprise this season while I expected that Rubio will feel very good in NBA (not that good though).

If shooting 29% is feeling good I don't want to see his bad days. Oh and did I mention his team sucks? But hey, they got Love with monster stats and Ricky right?

Haslem has this shot.
That's why I said it was the right decision.

Well shooting is not his main job obviously. He gets his team going and that's what they need. Wolves stepped forward this season and that's good for them, IMO.

100% agree!!!!!! Haslem is usually good from there.

Pekovič Should be in the race for most improved player! Like you said he is not the fastest guy. He is using raw muscle to get results. He is over powering other NBA bigs. His team is doing good. Timberwolves are 1 game away from being in the 8th spot in the playoffs. The wolves beat LA Clippers last night.

Here are some positives that are improvements from last season. Rubio is responsible for some of the change.

Wolves Positives
Rubio is a good fit for NBA and a perfect fit for the Wolves. This is mostly because NBA has great scorers who attack the rim. Rubio is a great passer. Its a marriage made in heaven. All rubio has to do is pass the ball which comes natural to him. Yes Rubio is a poor shooter BUT he plays good defense and passes the ball extremely well. He is part of the reason for Pekovič's success. Rubio and Ridnour always find Pek. This team likes to pass.

Pekovič has continued his great play from Euroleague. His teammates trust him. Darko was hurt and Pek got to start in his place. Pek made the most of his opportunity. Watching Pek over power Andrew Bynum was amazing.

Darko Milicic. Now Darko is back and is playing better. I believe Pekovič has inspired Darko to play better. He had 13pts last night against the clips

Point guards Luke Ridnour and JJ Berea are excellent ball movers and efficient.

Love is Love. He is even better than last year. he had 39pts against the Clippers last night.

Beasley showed up in shape and is dominant on some nights.

Derrick Williams along with Rubio is a high performing rookie.

Rick Adelman is doing a great coaching job

Best of all Wolves with a 20-19 record are set to make the playoffs.
