Well, I just done this thread, so we could talk about our fav sport, teams, news( like trades in certain sports), sport theory(strategies and tactics) etc.

I hope this catches the interest of at least one or two guys here.^^

I love basket and streetball the most, even over martial arts or football. Grew up in the MJ, Magic, Hakeem area in the early 90's with young Shaq, Penny, Grant Hill supposdly taking over the torch of greatness ... That was a time were actual NBA games and shows were regulary in the german TV. Even stuff like the McDonalds Championship was in TV.

Last year we got basically nothing at all for a while, but at least a few minor things get shown in PTV and DSF now. I really hate how stuff like Dart or a minor 3rd league soccer team gets more airtime then the NBA for example ... Also it's not a matter of money like we can read out of recent interviews.

Anyway, let's get this thread started for real.^^

I never really have a liking for basketball.
(1) Can't never really play the sport. The ball won't go into the basket or only once in a while.
(2) Don't really know the rule...that my fault...
(3) Not much people really want to play it.

But the good side is that. I'm very good a handling the ball well only dribbling. And the sport is pretty fun to play if other people would want to join. Here is just mostly Track and Football and maybe soccer that's the big deal. B-ball don't really have that big of a deal except for those that play it. Kinda sad...
As for news on sport I have no clue whatsoever. Don't even know the news for sport that I actually play and good at...odd.

MVP could be Chris Paul, LeBron or Kobe

But seriously, Kobe did not get the MVP in 2005 (I think he had crazy 35/6/6 or so as average at times) when he was even more unbelivable then now so if the Lakers won't get 60 wins or somethin higher I doubt he can make it.

LeBron is basically the whole Cavs lol and posts 30/8/8 that is the first guy ever since Jordan did in his prime. If they get a good win ratio he has actually the highest chance. Also David Stern and folks love him, just look at the all star game and ask yourself why Ray did not get at least co MVP honors ...

Chris Paul has a super high efficent rating and make a non playoff team into somethin. Like with Kobe I expect high chances only through if they get a huge win ratio.

Then again, even if Kobe is currently the best baller on the planet and in his prime, the Lakers got a much better team this year then the Cavs and the Cavs lost nearly every game as LeBron was out. So yeah the most valuable is Lebron. Also once the Cavs finally establish a second scorer and get a decent PG LeBrons numbers will fall. He will still be great and the engine of the team. Stats are good to judge guys but not everything.

Champion ..., who knows but the east has only 2 teams (Boston, Detroit and yes not Orlando) which can really compete with the best of the west (of course anything can happen but if someone like the Cavs come through again they just get raped again). I mean just look at the divisions and were you find most of the top guys in the game ...

On another note I think the Spurs will rack up more wins and get steady ones there healthy again. I'd never leave them out of a Championship talk.

Damn I think if Kobe stays healthy even the Lakers can get a shoot at a deep run in the playoffs.^^ The bulls suck this year but even with a negative win ratio they might get place 8 from the sixers for now lol.

yeah, I think that Kobe has a shot for the league mvp now, the lakers gained a lot when they got Pau Gasol! ^_^

One of the best trades ever the last season in mind ... Just look at how other west teams reacted and how cheap Gasol is in contract terms. Him Kobe and Bynum with D Fish and solid guys like Luke brought back Championship dreams. Or at least some deep playoff runs.^^

Oh yeah KG might be in the MVP talk, too. Well, if the Celtics rack up more wins, through he is not as good as he once was nor does he have that much of an impact like Kobe, LeBron or CP3 on their teams ...
