RT @DanWoikeSports On #Lakers broadcast, Dwight Howard said he no longer wants to be called "Superman." New nickname? "Ironman.

Soo Howard wants to be called Ironman and yet he may not even be ready for the season.

So tired of Howard and his act.

It's only training camp and preseason but Ray Allen is looking damn good for the Heat. Doesn't seem like his ankle is bothering him at all.

Interesting year upcoming for the boys in PHX.

I like the assembly of talent they've put together, but it will be interesting to see how the chemistry is, what type of offense is put on the floor and how they respond to not having Nash orchestrating the offense.

Gonna enjoy this season like it's the last. Because being a Kings fan, it very well could be.

The bigger problem is what kind of defence they can put together.

No matter what, this sounds funny when a Sharks fan says this!

Ironman ?


Ironman never cries



He drinks a lot, but he never cries


And I should stop watching games from the 80's and the early 90's on NBA TV

they keep reminding me how sad today's NBA is

I lived in Orlando as this whole thing unfolded. When I moved down there (Early August) people loved him. As he started his act, people just hated him. I just wish the Magic took Brooklyn's deal (Brook Lopez and picks). Either way they'd be screwed, but I like Lopez's potential more.

That was fine when they had the best offense in the NBA. Now, they won't. Now they have Beasley playing a major role.

What is going on with Howard lately. First he calls out Shaq, now he's complaining about a nickname. I haven't followed the NBA as closely but it just sounds like Howard might be the biggest whiner/spoiled brat in the NBA. Shut up and play basketball.

I'm one of the few. Most Sharks fans are Warriors fans, since they play in Oakland.

It took me a few years to get used to "New Orleans Hornets."

I was making an LA Kings reference. Do you feel weird when saying "GO KINGS" when watching a Kings basketball game? I never hated the Sac Kings so I never felt weird saying "Go Kings" in hockey.

Anyway, you really are in the minority among Sharks fans. An A's and a Kings fan. But I'm kinda like you. it feels like most of my fellow Kings fans are also my enemies since they are Laker fans and a number of them are Angel fans.

Alright so here is a question, which team that picked in the top-10 at the draft can surprise and grab a playoff berth?

Hornets and/or Nets.

But with the Nets, I don't think it should be a surprise.

Brooklyn, Toronto and Golden State IMO.

I don't think it'll be much of a surprise but Brooklyn should be able to grab a playoff spot. Minnesota looked pretty good last season before Rubio's injury and I think they can compete for the 8th seed in the West. Neither team actually picked in the top 10 because they traded their 1st round pick but they were bottom 10 in the league.

Brooklyn is supposed to be good and a lot of people seem to be on the Minnesota bandwagon so I'll go with Golden State as my surprise team. They have a lot of good young players and they should be an exciting team to watch. They just need Curry and Bogut to stay healthy. They have a solid line-up:

C: Bogut/Biedrins
PF: Lee/Landry
SF: Barnes/Jefferson
SG: Thompson/Rush
PG: Curry/Jack

Well, I don't "hate" the LA Kings. I dislike them when the Sharks play them. But, I was happy for them to finally get their cup this year.

There have been nights where the Sac Kings are at home and the Sharks play the LA Kings. Those nights are weird. I like and dislike the Kings at the same time.

After moving out from the midwest at 8, I lived in an area about an hour north of Sacramento. So I really don't have an affiliation with any city of the teams I like, besides them residing in Northern California.
