Nice job trying to change the subject, you bring up the Memphis game and now you want to talk about seedings? OK, well then the Lakers are only 7 games ahead of Denver, locked for the 1st seed, but were only 3 losses away from the 6th seed..there does that make you feel special now? would you like a cookie for that?

SHUT UP! Don't f*cking say that, for the love of God. Matter of fact, I don't want to hear a single compliment towards Denver from you until the series is over. I still remember before the last game between Denver and Laker, you were complimenting Melo and he ended up rolling his ankle and sitting out two weeks the next day against the Lakers. STFU, I'm dead serious dude.

Kiddlovesnets' play-off 1st round prediction (Pt.1):

W1 Los Angles Lakers(57-25) 4-1 Denver Nuggets(50-32) W8
Another match-up for Kobe-Iverson since 2001's NBA final. Still, the Lakers seem to be considerably better than Iverson's team and this series is actually the easiest to predict in the West Conference. Still, the Nuggets have chance to upset the Lakers, but it's just not likely to happen though. Lakers in 5.

AI average 50% + Melo 53% from the field against L.A. this season.
If guys like Kleiza, JR, KMart step up, then Denver has a good chance.

No, but I'll take a brownie from AI or Melo.

I know you guys miss having him on your team, especially you.

kleiza always guards the first option when hes in the game with the second team. karl has used him on kobe this season more than anyone else. plus do you really want j.r. fouling out on 6 bryant pump fakes?

That's not all the way true, and Kobe will own LK before he does JR. LK doesn't have the speed to stay with Kobe, JR does.

Oh yeah. JR Smith jumps on every pump fakes. I'd rather see Kleiza on Kobe. He's not as fast as JR, but is smarter on defense. He's also smarter on offense (he never or rarely takes bad shot).

JR Smith gotta better not fire to much from the outside. I've seen games where he was really good at driving and making tough lay ups. I think this would be one of the keys for Denver. An agressive JR Smith, going to the paint, instead of taking tons of bad 3s.

"Everybody knows how big that stage is," Iverson said. "I relish the moment. This is what I play basketball for. This is why I love it so much. The competitive part of me is going to definitely come out. It would have come out regardless who we played or who we played against, but definitely under the bright lights, those are the moments I cherish."

Just like his matchup with Kobe Bryant.

"Let's go. This is what it's all about for me. You can't draw it up any better," Iverson said. "People say he's the best basketball player on the planet, so I'm definitely looking forward to the challenge. Especially with me believing that about myself, so let's go.

"This is what it's about. If you're scared, get a dog."

AI is ready

anyone we put on kobe will get owned. i'm just guessing lk will get the assignment off the bench based on karl's past strategies. lk lacks the speed, but jr lacks the discipline (jumping for pump fakes, being overaggressive, losing track of his man).
