NBA Thoughts- Starbury, Big Ben, D-Wade, and more

 On a team with a rising point guard in Rajon Rondo, Stephon Marbury will struggle to thrive. Just wanted to put that out there. His cocky attitude will hurt the Celtics more than he will help them. Although Starbury is still a bit talented, his time is up. While I don't think he will destroy Boston's team chemistry, I don't see him helping at all. At this point, Rondo is much more fitting for the C's.

 Players like Dwight Howard are extremely rare. His stats are off the charts, but his dominance when you watch him is overly stunning. If I were starting a team, this is the guy I look to, over Chris Paul. A few guys can stop CP3. No one can stop Superman.

 Truth be told, and no offense to Ben Wallace, I don't think the Cleveland Cavaliers will do that much worse without Big Ben. It's the duo of LeBron James and Mo Williams that will win games, as they've done all year.

 Dwyane Wade is a monster. If he can slightly improve on defense, this guy is as good as Kobe Bryant. Really... if he were on the Lakers, would they be that much worse? Also, I'm sure D-Wade is thrilled to know he has a diehard fan in err... Lil' Wayne.

 Lamar Odom needs to get more love. When he tries, he's solid. With Andrew Bynum out, I see Odom finally getting recognized as being a key player for the Lakers.

The Miami Heat could use a big man.

No joke, huh? I have great respect for Udonis Haslem's game, but he needs help back there. Shawn Marion is definitely tradeable at this point; I'm really not sure why he's still in Miami to be honest.

Dwyane Wade desperately needs a wingman. LeBron James found his in Mo Williams, yet Wade has no one that has stepped up as the Number 2 guy. I thought it would be Michael Beasley, but it doesn't look like it.

At this point, even a big man like Jermaine O'Neal would be welcome. Someone, anyone, who will improve the Heat's frontcourt, without giving up too many draft picks.

That is all.

Harst's Top 5 NBA Teams (12/17)

 

Boston Celtics logo1. Boston Celtics (23-2)

Boston is looking like a championship team again this year, due to great play on both sides of the ball. Still one of the deadliest shooters in the NBA, Ray Allen is having a great year with 18.6 points per game. Point guard Rajon Rondo has shown he has an offensive game as well as a defensive game. Watch out for the Celtics, they're hot.

Los Angeles Lakers logo2. Los Angeles Lakers (21-3)

Los Angeles may be sitting pretty at 21-3, but this is a team I have been disappointed with. On defense, the Lakers need to step it up. Andrew Bynum has still not developed that great defensive game that Lakers fans were anticipating. Kobe Bryant is having another great year, but he will need help eventually. Too many wins for the Lakers have been close; they should be dominating.

LeBron James takes the time to soak up the cheers after becoming the Cavs' career leader in steals.  (AP)Cleveland Cavaliers logo3. Cleveland Cavaliers (20-4)

LeBron James is getting some help this year, most of it coming from guard Mo Williams. Williams is looking like the counterpart LeBron never had and always needed. Now, with the Cavaliers playing so well, do they really need/want Shawn Marion on the team? It doesn't look like that trade will happen, and for Cleveland, I think it's good news.

Orlando Magic logo4. Orlando Magic (19-6)

Dwight Howard is having the MVP year fans expected him to have, but he is also getting lots of help from teammates. Rashard Lewis, Hedo Turkoglu, and Jameer Nelson are each averaging over 15 points per game. Orlando is having a great year, and if one more player can step up, look for them to make a run, even in a talented Eastern Conference.

Carmelo Anthony elevates his game in the third quarter, netting 33 points on 12-of-15 shooting.  (AP)Denver Nuggets logo5. Denver Nuggets (17-8)

It's scary to see how good the Nuggets are, considering they still haven't completely developed their team chemistry. Still, Chauncey Billups is making Denver into a true championship contender. In a weaker Western Conference, Denver could be one of those teams that surprises people in the playoffs. Looks like Carmelo Anthony doesn't really miss Allen Iverson, eh? The Nuggs are for real.
