    I agree. He takes a lot of criticism because his numbers aren't what they were in Toronto, but not many stars talented enough to be a number one option would willingly settle for a role like Bosh. It says a lot about his attitude and perspective.
    So... kinda like the "anti-Dwight Howard"?

    On a side note, since I live in the midwest now, I am considering moving my team allegience in the NBA to a team closer to home. I do not have the deep seated love for the Magic that I have for my Bucs or the Gators. I have "kinda" followed them during basketball season, and just seem to not care as much if they win or lose. That and I am kinda wanting a team closer to home.

    Can't do the Bulls. Much like the Cubs, they are so pushed around here my instinct is to not like them. Natural reaction, not my fault. How I am wired.

    I have adopted the St. Louis Cards and Blues in Baseball and Hockey. No NBA option there.

    That gives me 2 options:

    Indiana and Milwaukee. I am kinda feeling like a bandwagon fan thinking about the Pacers, as they are a serious threat to the throne right now. But, the Bucks sure have a lot of available seats. Not to mention I kinda like the "Bucs-Bucks" connection in Football-Basketball.

    Once I am in, I am all in. I will learn history, players, trivia, and assistant coaches. (I am still working on the Blues right now. They are actually a very interesting franchise.)

    Thoughts??

    Which team is closer? Don't be embarrassed to root for the Pacers. Right now I'd consider them a model franchise ( lucky too) with a good front office. Either the Bucks or Pacers would be a good team to root for, but the Bucks aren't going to see the same results in the playoffs anytime soon.

    As a die-hard Heat fan I can tell you the Pacers are an elite organization. There is no shame in being a fan, I have a healthy respect for them as being a good opponent.

    Just wanted to add that you shouldn't be too upset over Dwight Howard. I'm convinced he won't win a title in Houston. Howard isn't mentally tough enough to be the man when the pressure is on and James Harden refuses to play defense. If Harden learns to be a good defensive player it could happen, but he hasn't shown a willingness to work on that end yet.

    Pacers are a ton closer. I am only 70 miles from them, as my town sits right on the Ind/ILL border.

    Liking it.... Will try on a couple of Pacer hats. Maybe see if I can find a Reggie Miller jersey.

    Ya know, I do think he is talented enough and works hard. He sure doesn't feel like a man driven though, huh?

    Yeah, pretty much how I feel about him. He might prove me wrong though.

    So...apparently, the Nets won five in a row to start 2014.

    Is it just me or am I hallucinating?

    I do want something to click with the Nets. I hope that they continue this run and surprise everyone.

    The Bulls have been winning since they traded Lual Dang.

    THAT makes zero sense, unless it was one of those "I do not want to be next" reactions from the rest of the players.

    Just want someone in the East to click besides the top three.....

    EDIT: Just checked, and I am a little behind the times. Toronto has joined the ranks of the winning records to bring it to 4 in the East.

    Woo-Hoo.

    Playoff teams from east: Miami, Indiana, Toronto, Brooklyn, new York, Chicago, Atlanta. Maybe we'll see some surprises because Rondo is back on Friday. Also Melo and knicks will come through for the playoffs

    In a 7 game series I don't see any team knocking off Miami or Indiana. We need Stern to do a re-alignment to have the Pacers in the West so we can have epic Finals. We'll take the Pelicans to compensate.

    Happens all the time in all sports. The Indianapolis Colts used to play in the AFC East, the St.Louis Rams play in the NFC West. The Braves and Reds used to play in the NL West. The New Orleans Pelicans play in the Western Conference. I guess it's true that Americans aren't very good at geography.

    Why the heck are Memphis and New Orleans in the Western Conference.

    Yeah... I know.. It's to make them have the same amount of teams. But it's pretty much a joke.

    I so so wish Memphis was in the eastern conference. We would be a top seed every year.

    Toronto and Memphis need to swap conferences.

    I can understand Memphis because they used to be in Vancouver. That's about as West as it gets, but the Pelicans used to be the Charlotte Hornets. I don't get that one.

    I'm replying now and you expect a scathing response from mase as well. The Grizzlies can calmly take the #3 seed and be eliminated in the semis by either the Pacers or Heat. Here endeth the lesson.

    I'm a Heat fan, well DWade fan mostly. I'm a Memphis native, so I'm a fan.

    IMO the Pacers wouldn't stand a chance against any of the top 5 Western teams in a title match.

    Nothing strange about that. The Bullets/Wizards always find a way to beat Miami.

    The Pacers could play with and probably beat any team in the west in a series except maybe the Thunder.
