George named Most Improved Player
2013-04-23

Now he's planning to dedicate himself to becoming the NBA's best all-around player.

A few minutes after accepting the lea Apuestas Deportivas Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US gue's Most Improved Player Award, the 6-foot-9 swingman promised to work even harder to attain the biggest rewards of all - an NBA title and perhaps an MVP.

''I think I can play at an MVP level. I think that's very much within reach,'' George said Tuesday. ''For me, it's all about being consistent and having that aggressive mindset.''

George has already emerged as one of the league's top young players, which explains his runaway victory in the balloting. He received 52 of 120 first-place votes and 311 points, more than double the total of New Orleans' Greivis Vasquez, who had 13 first-place votes and 146 points. Milwaukee's Larry Sanders was third with 141 points and was one of three players to receive 10 first-place votes.

As part of the award, a 2012 Kia Sorrento will be donated to the Hawthorne Community Center, George's hand-picked charity.

George is also expected to be one of the top vote-getters for the Defensive Player of the Year Award, an honor coach Frank Vogel lobbied hard for Tuesday.
The question is whether George has what it takes to challenge for the league's top individual honor.

''With the physical talent he has, with the drive he has, there's no ceiling for him,'' Vogel said.

If 2012-13 proved anything, it's that George is a man of his word.

Before leaving town after last season's Eastern Conference semifinal loss to LeBron James and eventual champion Miami, George walked into Vogel's office and promised to come back with a more aggressive mindset and as a more versatile scorer.

James' guidance helped him reach those goals.

The two worked out together in Las Vegas as the U.S. team prepared for the Olympics, but all the while George was watching and learning from the best - not just James.

''It was huge. Me, growing up, idolizing guys like Kobe, watching his whole regimen, watching what time he got up to work out, watching what he was putting in his body,'' George said. ''The younger guys, we was totally the opposite, so I had to kind of take notes and follow what they were doing.''

The results impressed his teammates, coaches and many around the league.

NBA: West Finals Game 5 – Phoenix at Los Angeles
2010-05-27

The Phoenix Suns, left for dead after Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, returned home and found life, winning both games over the Lakers to even the series at 2-2. The critical Game 5 contest is set for Thursday night in Los Angeles, and the winner will get a huge leg up. Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com figure that team to be the host Lakers, as they are installed as 7.5-point favorites.

Los Angeles returns to the Staples Center where they are 41-7 (21-26-1 ATS) this season and need to reestablish control of the series. The Lakers are 12-3 ATS after three or more consecutive Over’s this year.

Kobe Bryant has been critical of his team’s defensive effort, however, others wonder if the Suns zone defense has gotten into the heads of L.A. players.

"It's the zone," Lakers center Andrew Bynum admitted. "We're settling for outside jump shots. They were out there moving that ball, they were confident playing at home and they really just shot the ball well. They had everybody spaced out so everybody's running around."

Though, as coach Phil Jackson pointed out, his team has shot 48.3 and 49.5 percent in the last two losses while averaging 107.5 points per game, but does some of the hesitation on the Lakers offense carry over unto the defensive end, causing lapses in concentration for a club not known for “Terminator” single-mindedness.

What the Lakers zone offense has also lacked is getting the ball into high post consistently, with cutters running baseline or weakside cutters slashing to the rim. While Ron Artest is still a fine defensive player, the loss of Trevor Ariza hurts the Lakers in this situation, since he has greater quickness, understands how to cut more effectively to the basket and is a more consistent three-point shooter than Artest.

Phoenix is bubbling with confidence and is 14-6 ATS in road encounters after a combined score of 205 points or more in a trio of tilts this season.

Channing Frye found his misplaced jump shot and the Suns reserves lambasted the Lakers bench 54-20 after being mildly ineffective for the first three games. "The bench played fantastic," the Suns' Steve Nash said.

Coach Alvin Gentry is earning his coaching “onions” as he left his bench players in the game for almost nine minutes of the final quarter, since they had produced 18-3 run, essentially putting Los Angeles away.

"We believe in those guys and they really believe in themselves," Gentry said. "I thought they were much better defensively than they were offensively, and they were great offensively."

Though no Phoenix player would publicly admit this, they know a Game 5 upset gives them best chance to win the series with Saturday’s conflict back at Planet Orange. A Game 7 win in L.A. would be a monumental task to pull off for Phoenix.

Sportsbook.com has the Lakers as 7.5-point pick, with total of 217.5. Pau Gasol and the rest of his teammates have to play like they did during eight-game postseason winning streak (7-1 ATS) and they are 18-5 ATS when tied in a playoff series since 1996. The Suns are 33-14 ATS after allowing 105 points or more and will have to solve the Los Angeles team in the yellow uniforms since they are 1-7 and 2-6 ATS in L.A.

TNT continues with the series at 9:00 Eastern and the Lake Show is 8-0 OVER after two straight games where both teams scored 100 points or more this season.

The StatFox Power Line shows a Pick em’, indicating there is still plenty of value on Phoenix.


Portland vs. PHX First round NBA Playoffs.
2010-04-23

Most Canadians find it hard to hoot and rave for the Raptors and would like to have Nash, who by the way is Canadian and his team the famous PHX , get successful in the league at least this one time which could be his first for his career. Basketball betting experts say that the Suns have been avoiding Denver along with Utah, however at the end of the season both the teams were beaten to a pulp by these dudes making the team come to the 3rd seed.


We know that Amare aggressively played the game that we’ve known to grow along and fall passionately for him. So let us wait and watch more out of him if he re surfaces this time. Amare should be able to do a double whammy in his career, if you check the records Four years back you would notice that the Suns lost twice at the Western Conference Championships, once to San Antonio and the other match to Dallas, this is the time when they picked up Shaq, which didn’t work out hence they decided to trade for Wallace and Pavlovic in lieu of him and sadly neither of which even worked as per plans and hence it was then that Cleveland made a decision on buying Wallace’s contract and place him in Boston.


Well I would say that this was the best decision that could have ever been thought of as this gave scope to the Phoenix boys to get Frye now this is one dude who has been of great help to Amare to set the ball rolling for him and much more than what Shaq or for a matter of fact even Wallace could ever do. Basketball odds say that Richardson has made a decision to stick by with the Suns who are averaging close to a fifteen and that too per game after he was being dealt for Raja Bell and Boris Diaw. Now without a doubt the Suns are a talented lot and all they need is a little dedication more to make a mark at the league and upgradation of their team has shown them a successful way.


On the other hand the Suns comprise experienced scorchers, who are experts at winning basketball games, and as plan B they now have the young ones on their teams to increase the chances of defeating the stronger Western Conference which also includes Grant Hill. Talking of Hill, everybody loves Grant Hill and with Hill’s veteran leadership, Nash’s ability at point guard, with Channing Fyre around and the walk in of Amare Stoudemire, PHX is sure to kick some booty out there and throw a challenge to its rivals. It is said that the Portland Trail Blazers Greg Oden, Brandon Roy and Joel Pryzbilla with a score card showing twenty-one points each game.


Roy is out with a meniscus tears and is waiting to come back and battle for his team and win the games for them but in the NBA the odds are not good that Roy will be back any time soon. Greg Oden and Przybilla have had knee injuries early December, sadly haven’t played since. Hence to take over with the vacant places we now have LaMarcus Aldridge who undoubtedly has reason for Portland’s success after Oden flopped but he and his performance cannot be compared to that of what was capable to talk of when it comes to Greg Oden.


Someone who has been of great help has been Andre Miller, especially when it comes to managing the team spirit especially when you have Roy who is hurt and Batum who has gone further and not been of good health. With Oden receding, a decision by the Blazers was to give up Blake and Travis for forward-center Marcus Camby who now has helped fill Oden’s void. When and if ever Roy isn’t his best it would have to be either Rudy or probably Bayless to do the best that have been ever done before by leading Portland to a big-time victory. So with Oden and Roy gone it will not be a defeat rather it would be suspense to the enthusiastic fans as they decide which team to bet on in the NBA matchup.
