I know they don't have the worst record, but I feel Boston is the worst team in the league at the moment. Maybe the only team that beats them out is Milwaukee, but damn Boston is so horrible. They seem like they really hate each other, hate passing to each other and their "leader" Jeff Green has turned into a complete douchebag and chucker IMO. They barely have any talent or anything there to look forward to for the future. Just a bunch of guys playing for themselves all the time, while Gerald Wallace bitches about everything in the meanwhile. We'll have to see how much Rondo can actually help them when he plays every game.

For my money Noah's the best C in the game right now. Guy is just so smart and plays with so much heart.

His offensive game is still to limited. I take Duncan/Hibbert/Howard/Bosh/Gasol all before Noah.

I would as well but Hibbert's offensive game is very inconsistent and at this point it doesn't seem much better then Noah's.

I'd prob take Bosh over him if I considered him a C... but I just can't.

Duncan... too old. Pau... too gimpy. Hibbert... too overrated. Howard... not mentally tough enough.

Duncan at almost 38 is putting up better numbers then Noah who is 28.

Per 36 Min Duncan: 19.0ppg, 12.2rpg, 3.5apg, 2.4bpg, FG 49%
Per 36 Min Noah: 12.6ppg. 12.0rpg, 4.9apg, 1.5bpg, FG 47%

Wow. Probably the most blatant lane violation I've ever seen, and somehow Dwight gets away with it. Ridiculous.

Wowww that's got to be one of the most ferocious blocks I've seen in years. Probably the most since this one:

Noah is dope, and quickly becoming the best passing C in the game. Short term, I'd still take Duncan over him, but if I'm building a team longeterm, it would be tough to choose another C over Noah. Of course, one huge concern with Noah is that he has a history of missing a lot of games the past few seasons due to injury.

Serious question, and I do agree with you that long-term I'd probably take Noah as a starting C, but Drummond would have to take some consideration no? It'd be really close for me.

And TO, you don't consider Bosh a C? why? He fits perfectly in that hybrid C mold that's so prevalent today.

Right now, I'd take Noah over everyone, with Drummond second. Sure, Duncan puts up better numbers per 36 mins. But his minutes are capped and he doesn't play enough because pops doesn't want to wear him down. Due to that, I wouldn't touch him. His age is the deciding factor for me. Will he have enough in the tank? Or will he tire out like he did in the finals last year?
Noah on the other hand is a machine. That guy has energy for days.

The New York Knicks rejected the Oklahoma City Thunder's offer of their 2014 first round draft pick to acquire Iman Shumpert, according to sources.

The Knicks wanted an active player in return for Shumpert and deemed the guard more valuable than the late first round choice that the Thunder offered.

Doc Rivers was willing to trade Darren Collison, Byron Mullens, Matt Barnes and two second round picks to the Knicks for Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Beno Udrih, but Donald Sterling and others within the Los Angeles Clippers were hesitant to deal for an injured Shumpert.

Shumpert is expected to return on the trade market around the June draft.

Nene was diagnosed with a sprain of his left MCL on Monday and is expected to miss approximately six weeks for the Washington Wizards.

The injury to Nene's knee in Sunday night's game was feared to be potentially season-ending.

Nene has been a consistent presence this season for the Wizards, who are positioned to make the playoffs.

Nene has appeared in 49 games, averaging 14.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.24 steals in 30.1 minutes.

Inconsistent or not - that is going to really hurt them.

PHI down 28 AT HOME in the first half against league worst (record-wise) Milwaukee Bucks. Just pathetic.
