Quote of the day
"If you want to have fun, like I did with Bill Walton, play with LeBron. It would have probably been more fun to play with LeBron, but if you want to win and win and win, it's Kobe. Not that LeBron's not a winner, just that [Kobe's] mindset is to go into every practice, every game, to get better." -- Larry Bird, when asked who he would choose (among current players) to play a season with
Paul Pierce passed Larry Bird last night to move into second place on the all-time Celtics scoring list, behind only John Havlicek. Pierce still has to add another 20% to his career total to catch Hondo, so thatís a tall order. Heís averaged a little over 18 pts/game over the past 2Ĺ seasons, and at that pace he still needs another 250+ games. Possible. But at age 34, you wonder if heís got that much in the tank. And will he remain a Celtic for the rest of his career?
David Lee put up a 25-11-10 triple double last night, the fifth TD of the NBA season, and the second of Leeís career. Lee is quietly putting up a solid season, ranked around #20 in fantasy pts/game. It hasnít been enough to propel the Warriors to the next level though, as the team is only 8-14, and there are currently ten Western Conference teams with winning records.
