    So Chris Paul is essentially out of the MVP race, right? Not that he really had a shot at besting the current top 2, but entering last night's loss Paul's Clippers were 3-6 in their last 9. And then he put up what has to be the worst line of his career: 3 points, 2 assists, 3 turnovers, 1-5 FGs. Magic was right at halftime when he said that it looked like a big game for the Heat, when it should've looked like a big game for the Clippers.

    Will an unspectacular spectacular season be enough for LeBron to overcome the lazy and contrite voter fatigue that often happens? This will be the 7th straight season that his FG% has gone up. If he can keep his league leading PER over 30 it will be the 4th 30+ PER season he's had, tying MJ for the most ever. After a month where many seemed to be putting the title of most valuable on Durant, LBJ has blistered February so far: 68% FGs, 56% 3s, and his first month averaging 30 ppg this year. On almost every night you can watch a Heat game and feel like James is the best scorer, best passer, and best defender on the court.

    It is crazy to me to think that James is still only 28 and Durant is only 24.

    LeBron and Durantula is fun to watch.


    Would Jax be able to bend the relationship between Kobe and Superman?

    Lebrons last five games have been ridiculous as has been pointed out repeatedly, and deservedly so. Here are his stats from those 5 games.

    FG% 3pt FG% FT% RPG APG SPG TPG PPG

    Lebron .714 .600 .783 6.8 6.0 1.4 4.2 31.0

    ????? .595 .556 .787 7.6 8.0 1.8 3.0 28.0


    Without looking, try guessing who the stats belong to on the second line. His too, are from the last five games.

    Here is another one for you. See if you can guess who these two players are. These are career stats.

    Thoughts on the new GS uniforms? They are going to use them for a few home games. Going with the t-shirt tops.

    Kudos to them for not going with some unimaginative variation of black colored uniforms.

    Yep, a huge stretch for Harden as well. I'd suspect that if you adjusted for pace, LeBron's numbers would easily outpace Harden in each category. But Harden was also very productive and incredibly efficient in that 5 game run.

    James was touting Harden as becoming a superstar this year. He has been playing out of his mind lately.

    One is Kobe. I had just looked at his career stats recently. Not sure on the other one. The PPG and FG% is too high to be Pierce or Carter, but ppg too low to be Durant.

    Other one has to be Wade. Only other scorer I can think of that would have a career PPG that high with a decent FG% because of how much he's in the lane. Wouldn't be Ray.

    This is too easy for you.

    Just looking at the stats you really couldnt say one way or the other who the better player was. Wade has had a fantastic career. His performance in the finals when he won his first may have been the best ever by a player.

    Keep in mind, it's not Lebron's overall game that has people taking notice these last five games - in fact, from an overall standpoint, he's been worse these last five than usual. It's the points and ridiculous shooting (in addition to the fact that he was already shooting 55% and 42% on the season) that makes it special.

    But yes, Harden has been great. I imagine you could take Kobe's last five and other than scoring, they would be pretty comparable as well.

    I agree on Lebron, but here are Kobe's last five

    FG% 3FG% RPG APG TPG PPG
    .462 .000 6.2 5.2 3.8 22.8

    Not really comparable. You'll notice that Harden averaged .60 from the floor and .57 from the 3 point line. Add in almost 8 rpg's and 8 apg's.

    I got ahead of myself a bit.

    The five previous games - 50% FGs 11.6 asts, 8.6 rebs. Might be the best 5 game stretch for anybody in the NBA from a rebounding and assisting perspective.

    And as usually happens, when discussing the incredible play of someone in the NBA, Michael Jordan's shadow always wants to show up and cast some shade on everyone else. Talk about an incredible stretch of games...

    @BeckleyMason
    MJ in 1989: 11 games, 10 triple-doubles, 33.6 points per game:

    Also shot 52% from the floor during that stretch. MJ is a monster.

    LeBron can be the first guy ever with 6 straight games of 30+ points on at least 60% FG%.

    At half he has 18 points on 6-8 FGs and 6-6 FTs.

    Along with 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, and 0 TOs. With how much he's playing the efficiency game right now if we'd start to see a concerted effort on his part to cut back on his TOs. He's being very careful about the type of shots he's taking but his TOs have been about average over the past 15 games. He usually has a toss away TO each game, like Deron always did in Utah, where he'd just get lazy with his handle and would fumble it away.

    But he can't keep up with Dame!

    Nerlens Noel out for the year. Does he come out this year, drop down in the draft, but start getting paid and have a professional staff oversee his rehab? Or does he go back to college, not get a full year in, and possibly have his stock hurt because he won't look as good coming off of the injury?

    He made 55.6% of his shots and got to the line 11 times in the game. If he is doing that, I'm totally cool with Dame chucking away.

    Sure he didn't have a lot of assists that night, but he is averaging 6.5 assists on the season. If you were redrafting at this point, Lillard doesn't drop below 3rd in the draft. He probably is 3rd behind Davis and Drummond.
