    That must of been cool the atmosphere at the games seem intense, to be honest im not much of a fan of the new Utah team, but i definitely respect Deron Williams game. I dont know why i dont like watching Utah, but i just dont, there doing pretty average this year and it looks like Boozers on his way out.

    How expensive are jerseys aye there around $100.

    i decided to see what all this lebron fuss was about by watching the cavaliers jazz game (probs the first whole NBA game i've ever watched). i was gobsmacked. he almost single handedly won the game for them in the last quarter... like 20 points in the last quarter or something. it was incredible, lol. the jazz dude's buzzer beater was intense as well, lol. i might watch a bit more nba in future, definitely more exciting than most other sports to watch.

    I played Bball my whole life and won like 6 finals, I was a point guard and one of my mates was a center he is 6'6 nothing better than throwing up the perfect alley oop for him to dunk down haha. Im a massive LeBron fan i bought his jersey the same yr he was drafted. new there was something special about him. Ive also got an Iverson and a lakers draft cap that i got as a gift. I will agree that the only reason Kobe is better atm is because of the rings. other than that. LeBron ftw, Go Cavs

    No prizes for guessing who I go for! Used to ball a bit in uni, and played some comp as well. Better at playing soccer but ok @ basketball.

    Unfortuntately it wasn't on telly... but Houston V Minnesota a few days ago!!! Minnesota tied it with a half court heave at the end of regulation.... then Houston won in in TRIPLE overtime! wat a game!

    Its hard to compare the two beccause they play different positions, are different sizes, and have success in different areas.

    Yeah your spot on, but in my opinion Lebron is the better athlete while Kobe has more polished fundamentals. Skill wise i respect Kobe and say he has a better game but Lebron athletically is a freak, but give it another year and i think Lebrons mid range game will speak for itself and Lebron will be put down as one of the great, he should get a ring either this year or next year.

    If you were building a team from scratch you'd take Bron first every time.

    If you needed someone to hit a shot with 5 seconds left FTW, you'd take Kobe every time.

    Neither is anywhere near Jordan.

    In 15 yrs from now i think Bron will be remembered as a better player than Kobe, but Jordan will still be king. And i dont particularly like any of the 3, but respect where respect is due. My fave players have always been the underdog types- Latrell Sprewell fave ever player, and active fave would be Gerald Wallace from the Bobcats, that dude is awesome.

    Yeah i can agree with everything said, Mj had a skill set as good or better than Kobe and had the speed and vertical just as good as Lebron and if they were the same size id say strength aswell.

    Gerald Wallace has to be one of the most underrated players at the moment, but saying that there is a lot of underrated and overrated players.

    Yup, you'll get to see him in the dunk contest on all-star Sat night Feb 13th (sunday in Oz)

    The contenders - Nate Robinson (Knicks, again..and defending champ), Gerald Wallace (Bobcats, you mentioned him), Shannon Brown (Lakers), DeMar DeRozan (Raptors) and Eric Gordon (Clippers).

    Lebron the chicken backed out!!! brrrrp brrrp If you guys watched the dunk contest last year, he was interviewed on the sidelines and said he would enter this year's comp. He's too scared to be beaten by scrubs.... he's no MJ or Kobe

    Nate has an unfair disadvantage due to his height..... but time to pass the crown to someone else maybe.

    Last year : He was coerced into saying he'll do it cos the interviewer said whenever a challenge it put to MJ and Kobe, they would accept and step up. They weren't scared of challenges and they stood up. It was after those comments that Lebron later said he'll do it. Now he's backed out... soo I say he's "scared".... scared of losing.

    He's a gun player, maybe the best in the NBA at the moment... but dunno if he has that mental edge to win championships.

    Too me this dunk contest is going to be weird, Nates in it again. Gerlad Wallace i just cant see being very creative and the same thing with Brown, as for the dunk in between Gordon and Derozan, i think Derozan should win that. I reckon they should have more than 4 dunkers like back in the day.
