That garbage team just put up 71 on your team in the 1st half.

What a hell. Bobcats are on 17 game losing streak. I knew they haven't won in a while but 17 is a surprise.

Like I said, they're facing a team missing 4/5ths of their starting lineup. Good half for them, but they're still an awful team as evident by the standings. (Last in West)

They aren't last in the west, New Orleans is.

Records don't matter when the ball is tipped off. Sacramento has no inside game, yet NY can't defend the perimeter. That's bad play and the coach needs to adjust that.

Of course it doesn't. But this is just one game and looking at the whole season relatively, Sacramento has a bad basketball team. Are you denying that?

I don't believe I ever implied they were a good team. They are a bad basketball team that has talent. Bad teams with talent can outplay more consistant teams for 12-14 games a year and look very good then play bad basketball for 60+ games.

They are a bad team in terms of not being able to play as a winning team consistantly, but the guys have more talent and drive tonight than do the guys in the blue and orange /BillWalton.

I wouldn't call Sacramento garbage myself. They're a young team trying to find their way, but they're not exactly an easy game. They're much more than their record shows.

You can't just assume looking at a record that a team is an easy win. These players are pros and are going to play with effort and pride. Calling another team garbage is a cop-out when you're angry at the way your own team is playing

So if the Thunder are losing to the Bobcats at halftime, the Bobcats aren't a garbage team?

I don't see the logic.

What is a team? How they are playing at that moment or a collection of games in the past? Teams get into the tournament by winning more games than others, but on any given night, one team can simply be better than a team with a lot more wins.

I can see the Mavericks being really bad for a while. I personally think they are the worst drafting team in the Nba.

Okay. I guess the Bobcats are good on any given night.

You're playing a garbage team, though, so how is that an accomplishment?

I don't get your logic.

They're good when they play better than the other team, which they haven't done in 2 months...

I agree. Gosh forbid some people give any other teams any credit. The Kings would have more Ws under their belt but their biggest problem it seems to me is just like tonight, if they start to miss they get onto themselves. They're too young to realize there is plenty of time and start to panic a bit. It's something they should grow out of with more experience.

Still noteworthy, playing against any team.

Over the last few years the Mavericks haven't tried to keep their first round picks. It's not that they're a bad drafting team but they don't actually want to be making picks. No reason for them to when their roster was full and they were going for titles.

Could see the Mavericks trading for someone like Cousins pretty soon. Their only goal this season was to make it through the year and take a run at a big fish, considering that's quite unrealistic they may want to trade for one. Surrounding him with the vets they have would probably make him grow up fast too.
