    Because NBA and sports fans love to follow the drama - whether cheering for them to win or lose. I usually tune it out as I have no real interest in the heat or the leastern conference. Too much good basketball at the top of the west to care about the media soap opera.

    All Star Starters were named.

    West: Paul, Bryant, Durant, Griffin, Howard
    East: Rondo, Wade, LeBron, Melo, Garnett

    I guess there's not really another center besides Howard.

    There is Tyson Chandler, DeMarcus Cousins, Horford, just to name a few... I thought they were going away from the Center position for the All Star game as far voting is concerned?

    Well I wouldn't put cousins ahead of Howard. And the east really doesn't have a center.

    You mean in general, or All-Star worthy?

    As for the West, I'd have put Duncan and Marc Gasol over Howard this season easily.

    Agreed. No just starting in the AS game. They have Melo, LaBron, and KG up front.

    One of the questions from the ESPN 5-on-5 before the LA/Heat game.

    5. Which player(s) will play for an L.A. team in 2014-15?


    Adande: Kobe. As he has said before, "Why would I go somewhere else?" He can't knock Lakers management for failing to bring in support, not after it got him Gasol, then Nash and Howard. And the one part of MJ's career he doesn't want to duplicate is the Washington Wizards phase. It would be easier to see LeBron back in Cleveland (how does Bron and Kyrie Irving strike you?) than in L.A.

    Haberstroh: Just Kobe. My guess is that if LeBron leaves Miami, he'll take his talents back to Cleveland, not to L.A. But if he does go to L.A., I have a feeling it would be to play in Lob City with his buddy Chris Paul.

    Soriano: Although it's possible the right answer is both, I'm going with neither. With Kobe talking openly about retiring when his contract expires in the summer of 2014 and LeBron looking more than happy to spend his career playing for the Heat, I don't think either will call the City of Angels home in that season.

    Wallace: Kobe Bryant. The fact LeBron even granted the Clippers a visit to recruit him as a free agent in 2010 shows he's at least open to the possibility of taking his talents to Cali. But LeBron seems to be more likely to stay in Miami -- or eventually return to Cleveland -- than to head to the West Coast.

    Windhorst: I say neither. But because they're the Lakers, I wouldn't completely rule out both.
    Anybody think that this has a chance to happen? It reminds me of one of those awkward love stories...

    When did Hinrich get a tattoo? He's about the last guy I thought I'd see with one.

    But most of all, I figure Dwight Howard is thinking, "Man I suck at free throws."

    Lakers had a team meeting to air any issues before shootaround in Memphis tonight.
    Then they went out and got their asses spanked.

    I honestly think they need to give up trying to make playoffs this year and try to fix the basics. Even off of the court, I think their team is a mess.

    Wonder if Howard faked today's injury since he is unhappy?

    I wouldn't put it past him. I don't care how good he is, he is a cancer to the team.

    It looked pretty weak.
    No contact, he reached out to defend a shot with his left arm, and apparently re-aggravated his right shoulder in the process.

    Harlan. Reggie, and Charles doing the LAC/Suns game. Game kind of sucks but the conversation is top notch. Lot of Laker bagging going on already.

    I thought they were going to have to call the riot squad in for the halftime show.

    I'm thinking for Chuck's first time back in studio they may need armed guards. I was crying all over again.

    Best studio show ever.

    Yes, I saw that. Wizard's record is terrible but they have been playing solid basketball lately.

    The WGN announcers are horrible. If I had to listen to them every game I'd probably off myself.

    First time watching one of their broadcasts so I am not sure if he and his partner are always like that. Sounded like they were calling a funeral or something. No excitement or anything. Granted the Bulls were struggling, but still..
