GRRR...parker burned the hell out Gary Payton last year in the playoffs. Until Shaq and Malone built the wall and put him on his ass. XD

Shaq returns tonite. But Flash was on fire...LMFAO at how he got nailed in the groin by Jason Kidd's shoulder.

Hey, anyone else see Jalen Rose taking off then then throwing his jersey against Memphis?  I can't help but laught at the unfortunate situation the Raps are in right now.  Coach Mitchell just seems to be a huge cocksucker that makes enemies out of his own team.

I saw the Jalen Rose striptease but was he mad at Mitchell?? shit. Can't the Raps even get a coach that will have players listen? Must be all that "I hate playing in Canada" bullshit. Fools don't even wanna work hard.

Trade Raefer Alston to the Lakers!!!!!  :evil:
Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: kuno_thunder on March 06, 2005, 09:18:51 AM
I think he was just mad at the apparent lack of effort by the whole team, especially when it seemed like they could have taken the game.  Like, Mo P says how he doesn't get enough floor time in the 1st half, and then they still lose when he was put in the starting lineup.

As for Alston, who would you like to see the Raps get back for him?  Cuz he's good when he's not all pissed off at the world.
Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: daigong on March 07, 2005, 04:36:10 AM
I dunno about Alston - problem is the Raptors kinda overpaid him so it'd be hard to get some contracts together. I'd send Chucky Atkins or Tierre Brown, a similarily erratic point guard.

Least the Raptors blew out the Hornets as everyone should. Also the Pacers who don't have a chance now with J. O'Neal out. LAKERS BEAT THEM BITCHES!!  :evil:

and...HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAQ! Heat just crush the hapless Cavs. No more LBJ for MVP chants now, eh?

Finally Jameer Nelson gets a chance to play and show what's he's got!

I was absolutely amazed when he fell so far back in the draft and so many unexperienced point guards picked before him (though I reckon Livington is a legend in the making). And after backing up the tireless Francis for much of season, finally gets a chance to start and putting really impressive numbers in the last few games.

Hope to he'll keep this up (and play some defence)!

And the Cavs....
Man, I hope they pick themselves up soon, Le Bron is too good to not be in the post season.

What the hell was up with the Cavs losing 6 straight? Jeff McInnis was hurt?

Fuckin Lakers are really  :x  ... how the hell can they lose to the Clippers again? Kobe had his dazzling moves - esp. that double, triple pump on Magette for the three and those array of spinning moves. BUT SHIT "The Goods" got ejected for tossing the ball and again. NO DEFENSE. Not even Phil Jax can save this mess. The Nuggets or T-Wolves are coming on strong.  :evil: Man...do I wish the Lakers made a deal with Clippers for Elton Brand.
Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: en on March 09, 2005, 12:08:58 PM
I reckon Elton Brand is extremely under-rated  (well, as under-rated as a No. 1 Pick that averages close to 20-10 can get anyway)....

If I was lakers, I would propose in a deal with Brian Grant, Devon George and a deepish bench player like Walton or Brain Cook for Elton Brand....
Hey, you never know what the Clippers will do, knowing their unstability...
You might even end up with Bobby Simmons!!

As for the Cavs...During the six game skid, Le Bron and Z were averaging about 60-70% of the points for the entire team, everyone (especially McInnis) was shooting poorly. Got a taste of the poor shot selection of Jiri Welsh and was so desperate to get some points from the second unit that they benched Gooden and started the tractor....bad decision.

Then he does his dumb munchkin dance!!  :x

Man, I really like Deveon George even though he was "despondent" (as Phil Jackson called him in his book) .... his defense is WAY better than what the Lakers have now. He at least puts his entire body on the opposition. And Brian Grant is just too undersized in the West. His fuckin contract will be impossible to move.

Honestly it always makes me wonder why ppl expect him to play like Shaq or sth like that...........  everyone who follows bb know that 6-4 to 7ft guys have the best athletism.  Rodman and Barkley are the short guys who always dominate on rebounds.  And Yao Ming is famous for his shooting range, selfless passing skills and "the dream" like moves.  People should compare him to Olajuwan instead of Oneal.

Shaq is special...
The size, the quickness around the post, the soft hands...
It just isn't fair.
Basically the only thing that can stop him is injuries (or more hack-a-shaq).

Yao...He can be quite frustrating to the rockets fan at times....
But he's been bashed way too much I reckon.
I mean,. just have a quick peak at the other big men draft in the top five in the last few years...
Dwlight and Okafor are doing okay...
In 2003 we have Milicic at No.2.
In 2002 we have Yao and Tskitishvili at No. 5.
In 2001 we have Kwame Brown, Chandler and Curry.
In 2000 Swift is the only guy that qualifies.
In 1999, Bender is at No.5
And of course we have the Kandy Man and Lafrentz in 1998...

So I think Yao is doing pretty okay compare to all these other "talented tall dudes"....

P.S. Kobe's bloody insane in the last 5 games!!!

Donyell Marshall is one of the most underrated player in NBA, he played well when he was in Jazz and Bulls too.  He used to be shooting mid-range, duno when he starts shooting threes all the time.  I remembered him as a very good rebounder rather than a sharp shooter.  Guess he really polished up his skills these years.

The shittiest stat of the week (and its only monday) Detroit went without a field goal vs Utah Sunday and still fuckin won!!!! They made 6 FTs to ice the 64-62 win. UGLY.

Quote from: en

PHEW!! He "only" tied Kobe's NBA record. Yeah Donyell is also a good big rebounder, had to something to come off the bench  :lol:

I agree en, pretty much it is unfair to compare Yao to Shaq. Yao also has to adjust to the NBA game and his endurance is not up to par. He was saying during Sunday's halftime that he wants to get quicker.

The interesting thing I notice about Shaq in Miami is that his trademark moves - the gorilla shuffle after a big dunk, the Superman theme, the staring at his left hand (which was an inside joke with Kobe) - are all gone in Miami. He's got some diesel noise and shit.

And for those who say Kobe did not contribute to the 3-peat know nothing about basketball. Sure Shaq won all the MVPs but who can forget Kobe taking over after Shaq foouled out in game 4 of the NBA Finals during OT?

And hey, have you guys answered the Q & A above. We want to know who your favorite teams and players are!! :)

Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: daigong on March 15, 2005, 10:57:33 PM
Yao Ming is GOOD but not the level that everyone is saying he is one of the greatest ever. Still have long way to go.

DAMN!! Listening to Jim Rome and Big Game James Worthy that the Lakers are not going to make the playoffs. Just like Magic said on TNT. So Kobe replies:

Bryant said he hadn't heard Magic Johnson's recent prediction on TNT that it would be almost impossible for the Lakers to make the playoffs. "Oh, really?" Bryant said. "I just take it as him trying to motivate us."

DAMMNNNNNNNN!! At least the Lakers game is on TV tonite. Hope Kobe schools AI. I predict 40+ points from both against those crappy defenses.

and Shaq loves his team - they can clinch a playoff spot tonite vs the Knicks:

"I enjoy the fact that I'm playing with a bunch of guys that play the game the way it's supposed to be played," O'Neal told reporters. "This is like the first time … where I could say I've been on a good team where everybody was on the same page."

Wow, now that was something I didn't expect...(so close to the playoffs).
While I never really liked Don...I still held him reponsible for the mess that Warriors went through in the 90s, I really think he has done a great job at the Mavs and re-introduce the concept of "they pour 100 points on us? we pour 120 on them!" And it's kinda funny see him get techs all the time.

Nevertheless, I thought Avery was a really smart player, and if the likes of Bryon Scoot...and Herb Williams can cut it at coaching the level, I think he can do the same, good luck to AJ!

Haha, well, at least Hack-A-Shaq was kind of necessary at times...but the one tactic that Don Nelson used that I'll never forget was Hack-a-Bowen..

That's right, HACK-A-BOWEN!

I remember it was two years ago, I think. It was Spurs at Dallas and in the second quarter with around 10 minutes and he brought on Walt Williams, who's job was to foul Bruce Bowen as much as possible (Bowen was shooting better from behind the arc than behind the line that season), and ridiculous to the point where Bowen was in bounding the ball and Walt would wait right next to him (out of the court).

Once the ball goes into the court, he'll bear-hug Bowen straight away...I think Walt Williams was fouled out in arounf 5 minutes.

Hack a Shaq I can undnerstand (but not accept).
But hack a Bowen???

Everytime Duncan misses games, Parker doesn't perform well on my fantasy team, can't get anything but points :(

Well you have to admit, TD is a pretty big presence offensively and defensively, Nesterovic obviously isnt effective without him :)

Well I guess SOMEBODY had to pay the price for the Cavs playing like crap and it was Paul Silas. It's weird cause not many people here are mad or sad or happy that he's gone. Sure, we kinda wonder why it was done this time of year and why in the blue hell Jim Paxson didn't get canned along with him but oh well. Silas seemed lost out there... he's not used to losing this time of year. His rotations sucked, he didn't play J Mac at all against Toronto, he fucked up by pulling out Sasha and Varejao in the 4th quarted against the 76ers when they where the ones that got us back into the game, and his X's and O's suck. All that said it isn't all his fault. Paxson has been bringing average at best free-agents and his draft pics aside from LeBron, who ANYONE could've pick, have been busts. We got fat on fodder teams like Atlanta and Charlotte and now we have to play tough teams and we're taking L's.

Anyway thank freakin' goodness we beat Detroit. The bench came on strong and LeBron was killer. Next up, at Houston and then Dallas. I'll be at that Houston game and the Cavs are winless everytime I'm in attendance.  :shock:

Mate, you're lucky to be a local so you have a chance to catch the cavs games, that's something that probably can't happen for me for a while yet.

To be honest, the Cavs have over-achieved all year, after losing Boozer for nothing, have luke Jackson out for the year before the season really started and not having any depth in the bench, most people have really pinned the Cavs in the 9th or 10th spot in the east...(though most probably didn't expect the continual upward spiral of the Lebron)

I just think Silas was fired at the wrong time (the Cavs are horrible on the road anyway), let him finish the season (look at the Wolves and when Denver promoted Cooper...there's no second George Karl)..

And don't worry, think Usher will paxson out sooner or later.

Mate, think you're a bit harsh on Kobe. While his attitude can be questionable, dun really agree on that MJ copy stuff (well, apart from the tongue thing anyway). When you're of similar size, similar atheltic ability, and ability to shoot the ball, OF COURSE you're gonna have similar moves. I mean, if anyone has a fadeway close to MJs, of course they'll bloody use it.

Nice win for the Cavs over the Clippers. We led for nearly the entire game. The bench played nicely. The defense stepped up. And LeBron burried a couple 3 point daggers in em when they tried to come back.

We gotta stay in the 4th, 5th, or 6th playoff position. If we play the Wizards I think we've a chance. We've blown them bitches out before. And against the Celtics would be cool since both teams hate each other.

Amare imo never is the key to Pheonix's success.  Look at Pheonix a year ago....... they couldn't even make the playoff with almost the same players.  It is Steve Nash that make pheonix a contender.  It is Marion who has the ability to do so many different things to spread out the floor for others.  Amare is just Nash's bitch.  Look at how bad he played when Nash was out.

Word. The Lakers are too proud of a franchise to let one stinker of a season go. They just needed some defense. Everytime Kobe passed the ball, fools would like lose the ball or something. It was such a mess. Watch them destory Sac-town tmr too. FUUUCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!! Only nationaly televised games on TV and it comes at the end of the season.  :evil:

And no. Not even Steve Francis wanted to play in Vancouver let alone former Laker Legend and GM Jerry "The Logo" West. Playing and working in Canada is like a big fuckin STD!! Even I wanna get the fuck out!! :lmao: Watch Chris Bosh and Jalen Rose leave if they could.

Did you hear/watch David Stern's interview on ESPN? When asked how he felt about the major markets of the Lakers and Knicks not being in the playoffss he goes spin doctor and says "Well, we got the new bloods blah blah" ... he was hoping for a Lakers-Heat Finals but it ain't gonna happen  :lol:

WTF are you talking about? Spurs are a good team, but without Duncan they are getting creamed... A lot of teams do crappy without their key starters...

Anyways, Lakers have only beaten the Sonics once, they are 1-3 against us.

Dec. 14th Sonics 108 Lakers 93 (I was at this game...)
Jan. 25th Sonics 104 Lakers 93
Mar. 20th Sonics 102 Lakers 100
And then our first loss was yesterday.

Let's face it, Lakers suck this year but they will improve... They are nothing without Shaq, Sonics are in the playoff's because they are a good team and deserve it, they aren't 50-25 for nothing so there isn't really nothing to argue about... There's something called Team Chemistry and a COACH to keep that chemistry together.

 6.  Houston 12.5  
 7.  Denver 13.0  
 8.  Memphis 14.0

Houston will probably lock down 6  or maybe go up to 5 depending on how Sac-town does. Denver is so fuckin hot!!! ARRGGHHH!!! Poor Michael Cooper. so I say:

5. Denver
6. Houston
7. Sacramento
8. Memphis

DAMNN!! KG's MVP last year looks suspect don't it??

and in The East:

 7.  Philadelphia 17.5  
 8.  Cleveland 17.5  
 9.  New Jersey 18.5  
 10.  Orlando 21.0  


I'm thinking Indiana can probably move up to #4 and New Jersey squeaks in as Cleveland goes for a slide. so I say:

3. Boston
4. Indiana
5. Chicago
6. Washington
7. New Jersey
8. Philly

Watching yesterday's games...Shaq is most def MVP. He made no-namers like Damon Jones into a 3 point threat and Udonis Haslem this high FG% 4. Steve Nash had respectable stars in Marian, Stoudamire and Q.

No question it'll be close, Nash has them running and gunning for so long, but will it work against dirty, scrappy, elbow-in-groin defenses like San Antonio and Detroit? It's that whole Mavs-Kings philosophy - score em to death.

OH NOOOOOOOO!! Don't throw a chair at me!! Or post your pix of Miki and a bat. :P

Face it. Rome is right. LBJ is not gonna stick around in this mess that Cleveland's new owners are conjuring up. At least the Lakers have a track record of winning titles.

Quote from: NBA Insider @ CBS Sportsline

Let me be one of the first to inform you that LeBron James might be leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers via free agency after the 2006-07 season -- if not sooner.
James is not happy with new Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who didn't even think to ask James for his input before Gilbert fired coach Paul Silas last month. When it comes to key personnel decisions, Gilbert has apparently treated James as if he's no better than the 12th man on his team.

With rumors swirling about the possible firing of Cavs GM Jim Paxson, James finally voiced his frustrations Wednesday after the Cavs lost to Indiana 98-77. And King James was not a happy camper.

"We lost our coach; we get new players; we get new ownership, and now Pax might be getting fired," James said. "It's been difficult."

Besides the Cavs losing 16 of their past 23 games, James was really ticked off when starting point guard Jeff McInnis recently was benched -- with no explanation. McInnis was averaging 15 points and five assists, and the offense was free of warts when he was in the lineup.

"We stopped playing our No. 1 point guard for no reason, and that messed up some chemistry," James said. "He sat for five or six games and, as a team, we didn't know why.

"We're losing games, and there's not a reason. There was never a reason why Jeff wasn't playing. We were concerned because he is one of our brothers, one of our teammates, and we never got an explanation."

To make matters worse, the Cavs once had a firm grip on the Eastern Conference's No. 4 playoff seed. Now they're in danger of missing the playoffs -- just like last year, when they lost 11 of their final 15 games in James' rookie season.

When NBA types talk about James, he's always linked with Denver's Carmelo Anthony and Miami's Dwyane Wade. James was the top pick of the 2003 draft, Anthony third and Wade fifth.

While James has collected all of the individual accolades and has been the NBA's top drawing card, Anthony and Wade will be in the playoffs later this month for the second consecutive season. This, too, bothers James.

For all of James' glory, the Cavs have become laughable since Gilbert took over. In fact, during the late stages of Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, James and several teammates were spotted laughing on the bench.

That's not a good sign if you're a Cavs fan. But it's a good sign if you're a general manager from one of the other 29 NBA teams.

James won three consecutive high school state championships before coming to the NBA. Winning is in his blood. So, too, is stability.

Gilbert would be wise to stabilize his franchise quickly before James demands a trade.

He is under contract with the Cavs for another two seasons. But after that, you can bet Dallas, New York, Sacramento and the LAKERS, among others, will be vying for James' services.

Gilbert should be applauded for wanting to bring in his own people to run his show. By the same token, he must learn that he has to include a player of James' caliber on critical personnel moves.

Gilbert turned Quicken Loans into one of the top mortgage companies in the United States. He then purchased the Cavs for $375 million. But if James leaves, Gilbert will have mortgaged the future of a franchise that, without James, wouldn't be worth two cents

Credit to Indiana big man Jermaine O'Neal for saying what a lot of people in the league are thinking but wouldn’t dare say. That racism might have something to do with David Stern’s proposed age limit. There could be something to that. Why does the league need an age limit?

The last two rookies of the year have were drafted straight out of high school. No one cares when players leave high school and go directly to the pros in baseball, golf and tennis, why should the NBA be any different. What, a guy is ready to put his life on the line and defend his country at 18, but he’s not ready to shoot three pointers until he’s 20. That makes no sense at all. O’Neal is right.


What do you guys think of this issue that J. O'Neal brought up? It all goes to the GM's and owners who allow for this to happen. Trying to prevent each other from getting the next Kobe or KG. I agree though, that when you take a look at all the HS kids drafted, they're black. And most are from poor situations who need the NBA contract to help their families. Baseball, hockey is different - they can be career minor leaguers because the rosters are larger. NBA it's 12 man, sometimes 8 man rotations any given night. And the onus all lies on David Stern now to make a statement or we'll keep wondering. :?

i think its 50/50. if HS kids go to collage, they can be more developed and more ready to go to pro.  there wont be alot of amare and lebron that can come straight out from HS and make a deep impact in the NBA. J.O'NEAL, T-MAC took awhile before entering their prime. imagine if they had been in a collage, they might had an impact to NBA right away.
 
i certainly think nowadays, nba doesnt even come close to the level during the 90s.

ah well...fuckin East 7-8 seeds are tighter than fuckin Takahashi's pussy!!

Miami loses to Philly (D-Wade with 48  :shock: ) and Cleveland loses to the Knicks. And you know Vince is gonna dominate tmr against the Raptors. :thumbsup

but all that doesn't beat Kobe's quote of the day..when asked yesterday if he had a problem finishing behind the Clippers. Kobe responded by asking the questioner, “What do you want, a cookie?”

Even if the Nets make it they still suck dick. obivious that I'm getting pissed huh? :lol:

Anyway, all this shit about LeBron leaving Cleveland is funny. He's a restricted free agent. So don't worry about him going anywhere for at least the next three years.

The game against the Knicks was ass. The Cavs next season BETTER get either Phil Jackson, Flip Saunders, or Pat Riley as a coach. Cause they need ALOT of coaching and some sucka from college or an assitant won't cut it. The gotta get rid of Jim Paxson cause he blows. I don't care who he's replaced with honestly. As for players keep LeBron, Z, Drew, Varejao, Tractor, Sasha, Luke Jackson, and Eric Snow... since we prolly won't be able to get rid of him, and get rid of the rest. We need some WINNERS on this team and some shooters. Shit... we need alot actually...

I thought Rox would struggle after J.HO done for season.  Guess not.  As soon as T-Mac get hot, Rox probably wins no matter facing what team.  They still need to have the backup doing their job though.  Motumbo should be the 6th man this year.  Crazy....... he still have a lot left in tank, could still be some team's first team.

Now if Rox can lure Olajuwan back to teach Yao Ming, after few years, Yao probably can even tops Oneal like how Olajuwan topped David Robinson at his prime.

You can point to at LEAST 10 winnable games the Cavaliers had that we blew. I mean, it's really fucking funny how with like 3 games left in the season they realize that it'd probably be a good idea to start playing hard! The Cavs need a coach that will teach them the fundamentals of basketball and put a foot in their ass when need be. As much as I wanted them to go to the playoffs they didn't deserve to go. This team has WAAAAAY too many holes.

And I tell ya... I don't trust Dan Gilbert worth a damn. I mean this guy could be another Ted Stepian, where he sticks his damn nose in the decision making way too often instead of letting basketball people make them. Or this could be part of his master plan to piss LeBron off, make him leave, piss the fans off, and then move the team to Las Vegas. It really blows ass cause I'm almost feeling like us winning the lottery and getting LeBron will end up being the WORST thing to happen us...

J Mac is gone. Point blank. So we need another point. Reports are saying Z wants a long term deal for around 14 million a season instead of the 3 year at 10 million a season the Cavs are offering. If he wants that much forget it. Without a first round pick we have to fix the team via free agency. Man I wonder how many people will be willing to come to a non-playoff team.

u know houston DOES have DEFENCE. that is what they are best at. and no rockets isnt solely based on t-mac. yao pissed me off wit his stupid fouls. but so what, mutombo rescued  wit his rebounds and defense. sometimes i even feel that he does a better job than yao.

i think this series can go 7 games. but who will win it???i honestly dont know. though i would want HOUSTON take it.

How about the Nuggets-Spurs game  :w00t:  :w00t: I like it. I FUCKIN LIKE IT!! I want the Spurs to go down too, Camby and Miller were CRAZY. The fuckin 3 point play by Camby then Miller's last second 3. The momentum changed right there before halftime.

As much as I try to support Yao, he is VERY inconsistent. That's why you see Dikembe on the floor most of the time. And his defense is lacking at times. T-Mac is lifting the team, and when they get back to Houston. They need to rethink how they got this far - Van Gundy defensive fundamentals.

Haven't been watching too much of the games but who can't enjoy the dunk over and over?

during the course of the season houston has been very inconsistant. i am worried that it will carry into the playoffs as well. but i am more optimistic so far for them.

I think Houston looks good from T-Mac drawing crowds and him being aggressive, this change made Houston on fire because the offense ran thru T-Mac first. Yao really has that conditioning problem too. Dude so fuckin tall yet guys just send floaters over him. No one's afraid of him after everyone has posterized him.

Sure the playoffs are more physical as people get hacked, but shit. Just throwing yourself into bodies as you drive the lane counts as a foul. then go back the other way and it doesn't get called.

yao and tmac missing ft down the stretch hurt the team badly. yao had a very good 2nd half due to the fact he wasnt into foul trouble. seriously though if houston is gonna win this series, t-mac and yao gotta keep running the pick and roll plus yao gotta stay out of foul trouble.

Yao did pretty good in the second half. T-Mac was really low-percentage that game though. That was seriously fucked up with that "miss call" in the 4th. That call cost them the game IMO.
It's true that Yao missed 5 FTs, but even with that, if they had gotten the ball on that play and scored, I think they would've won.
I also didn't like that call that the ref assumed was an "intentional foul" when he didn't even foul him.

The truth is, some teams get to play "aggressive" and go to the foul line 30 plus times. Some teams play "aggressive" and end up in foul trouble.

Uhm, no... You can't compare like a Center's .500+ FG% to let's say a Guard's .400 FG% because he bombs a whole bunch of three's rather than scoring in the paint...

Yeah. WTH happened? I kept my eyeball on the scoreboard and T-Mac was just lighting it up along with Mike James. Complete small lineup owned em!!

And Boston-Indiana series was TOO GOOD. I like that. Remember Antoine Walker? ROFL. Guys like whining and crashing and shit. GP's almost about to crack but he still humps and bumps.

Finally some good series to watch.

And it just occurred to me, Jeff van Balki is getting the same ref treatment as Pat Riley. He might even get suspended! FUCK STERN!

Remember when Riles said the refs were all against him? Why do you think Pat Riley ain't coaching again? He said too much. Refs are human, and will be biased. Steve Javie, Joe Crawford, are among the ones to watch out for and expect one team to get raped on phantom calls.

I saw that game...have no idea what happened to Gordon. Duhon had a really bad back, so they started Gordon...but Gordon hardly played and took his first shot, alas a very bad one in the 4th quarter (or late third quarter), then he was benched and never seen again. And Duhon ended playing a lot of the last quarter.

He must be really sick or something, there was no way that Pargo should have taken so many shots...

And Chandler would get a decent contract in the summer, I reckon. He was a  good presence on the boards and great at giving weakside help. If Dampier gets a fat contract, then he'll at the very at least, get a similar one (though not necessarily from Chicago).

That is just some assumption from the mainstream opinion....... actually if you know the Chinese more......... you'll know that we are the most un-united bunch of race out there (CHN vs HK vs TW, even southern Chinese vs Northern Chinese) ......... and we tend to dislike or disrespect our own althetes until they actually did something good for us....... like win not only one championship but several...........

I know you were just kidding, but I have seen so many of those stereotyping on other boards already.  Just hope you guys can see now how the ASG voting conspiracy was totally a laugh to me.

Althetes = Useless Dream catchers in most Chinese's mind until they actually succeed in something.... so people see YM is more like a bribed puppet from NBA to earn the Chinese hard-earned money more than their hero as portrayed to the western world.

i cant believe u dont have TSN, although i hate this channel the most outa all my sports channels. it was aired on TSN.

i feel so damn bad for T-MAC. u can really look at his dejection look on his face. being kick in the first round for the 3rd or 4th time. this series was kinda like the Magic vs DET 2 yrs back where Magic was up 3-1 and ended up losing the series.

T-MAC deserves no blame at all from this series. he definitely play his heart out in every game. the fucking role players just choked big time.

btw nothing related to bball, referring to ytl's take on china's sport, i remember when china made it to world cup in 2002, china expected them to do well ( which didnt happen at all). so then they ended up being shut out in every game they played in the first round. i remember the new reported the fans back in china were like throwing chairs and shit at the TV. they were just mad at the chinese team doing so poorly.

It was Game 7.

Yeah and with the soccer thing.  A few days before the world cup, fellow honkies came up to me and said that "China have a good chance of getting through the first round and maybe even winning the whole thing.?"

Which I replied, "Which planet are you from? I'll be happy if they don't lose 5-0 every game."

Apparently, the media in China had realy built them up to world-class level. And the chinese is so easily manipulated by the media nowadays...Even as a ching myself, I got to say that the Chinese Soccer team really sucked...and still do.

So same for the Yao thing. The chinese population will react to whatever the media/gov't tell them Yao is.

Haha, for the world cup thing, I don't know where those ppl coming from man........  what I heard or read from newspaper is that team China tried to win just one game, later even lowered to just tried to score one goal (which also failed).  That was their aim that time............  well, given the popularity, I guess the chances of meeting delusional fans are pretty high too..........  oh yeah, in China, they talk sports but doesn't mean they know sports........  how suck is that?

So maybe thsoe opinions are from fans that just never watch soccer before except their own crappy fixed league.........

I am living alone so I don't want to waste too much money on TV coz I stay online more........  I am already paying $28 for basic cable already and I only watch the NBA games (not even every broadcasted game).....I just don't want to pay more on TV.  I actualy don't even have a TV, I watch TV on my computer screen thru my video card.

Hey. Shaq doesn't do monster dunks all the time, if you watch closely he is can pass, make running hook shots, and alter a complete team's way of defending. He warrants triple quadruple teaming. And to have Shaq's former team do worse and Nash's former team do better? There was some sympathy votes for Nash no question. Not that I hate Nash, I support him cuz he's from Canada but Shaq should always be the MVP. (http://img45.echo.cx/img45/4935/icontrophy2lj.gif)

That saying, Wade really needs to step it up...that one circus shot before the half was what he needs. He has to get used to Prince slapping him and shit. Kobe couldn't handle it. Zo is right, The Pisstons ain't Da Bulls. They can be beat.  :twisted:

Both are not surprising for me, you got Parker and Ginobili those explosive guys to score crazy, and Prince's top notch defence has been proven from last year.

Given that size and his type of game, sure he is attracting double team or even triple team or Q-team, but you also have to see he is useless out of the paint area...... he lack of real "skills".  The passing part is just more brainwork than a skill.......

Haha, yeah, everything he does HAS TO BE in the paint.  Hook shot, layup whatever shit you see.  You call those skills?  Come on, I still haven't seen him even finger roll once!!  Even Steve Nash can do those hook shots, and over Dirk Norwitsky, how about that?  Nash can score or dish, even rebound at times.  Just looked at the Dallas series, Dallas basically got pwned by Nash.  Although I don't think anyone can stay hot forever, but guess what?  He is still shooting very well even against the SA's defence!!!

If you think Lakers' fall is totally because of Shaq's leaving, you are so wrong my friend.  Have you notice Malone is gone too?  Payton?  And look at who they traded for...........  3 solid but not really stars.  Not even Derek Fisher and Robert Horry those solid backups with rings already  want to stay in Lakers.  Lakers right now is just totally fucked.  No one wants to play there period.  More importantly, have you ever think that maybe it's Kobe's problem for the Lakers fall this year too?  Remember Atkins even said in public that he doesn't know if he will be there next year, go ask Kobe the manager.  If that didn't tell you sth wrong with the Kobe being too powerful in the organization which leads to Lakers' fall ....... you are just delusional.

Ok, now let see the Dallas side, this year they got Dampier (the top hard banger), Jerry Stackhouse (the previous all star), Jason Terry (one of the best scoring pg), and the youngster Josh Howard and Marquis Daniels are very althetic and improving.  Just look at the roster, no one would think Dallas do bad this year.  

Then just look at Pheonix, they weren't even close to playoff last year, but with just one addition of Nash, they are now #1 in regular season.  Don't tell me it's coincident.  If you claim Shaq changed the game, so does Nash.  Shaq made ppl realize a physical dominant banger center is the best way to build a team, that's why Dampier and Fortson those kind of skills-less center can survive in NBA and earning almost max salary.  In the meanwhile, Nash brought back the pretty fast break offence in NBA after those defensive team winning all the time.  (ie. San Antonio, Lakers, Pistons, etc)  Just look at Pheonix, no one can deny the fact that Nash just one person made the team much much better.  Remember Nash was injured in the middle of regular season?  Pheonix lost 4 or 5 straight in that span.  

I think I can rest my case here.

Here's the highlights: using this new service (kinda like Rapidshare but with better limits)

http://www.qfile.de/dl/10535/050529_pistons_heat_3.avi.html

Some say the officiating was bad yesterday...I think it was justification for the ticky tack fouls that the Pistons always manage to draw. Like Billups throwing himself into a crowd and expecting a foul every time or Hunter getting away with two hands on his man. I was just laughing my ass off as Sheed finally got T'd up. Miami too was getting into foul trouble (esp. the last game) but Eddie Jones stepped it up!!

Pistons might take the next game but Miami has the momentum for sure.

I caught the game on ESPN...

Basically it was really tight throughout, Nash and Amare was unstoppable in the first half, scored something like 37 of the 49 points in the first hallf..and Tony Parker was ineffective (Joe Johnson stood back around 2 metres from him, so forcing him to take open jump shots whihc he missed more than he hit)...

Then Parker start hitting jumpers and three pointers in the start of the second half, bring out the lead to nine points....then it's pretty much exchange blows between the two, no one can stop Amare and No one can stop the Ginobili/Duncan pick and roll.

Now for Miami to go through!

ARRGH! Fuck the Pisstons! Larry Brown's going to the Lakers so tama-chan can become a Lakers fan  :lol:

Probably one of the best 7 game series in a while. Just too bad Miami wasn't healthy, even DJ reaggravated his foot.  and damn, Wade tried to do too much and it cost em. Yeah, dude was hot in the 3rd but fuck man, give it up to Eddie. I'm proud of Shaq coming strong but shit man. Larry Brown outcoached Ron Jeremy on this one, having two post guys (Shaq and Zo) take on two fuckin outside bitches in McDyess and Sheed. I had my hopes up when Eddie Jones hit that buzzer beater cross court 3 (http://rapidshare.de/files/2228003/050606_2_4_EJones_buzzer.avi.html).

WHOA. ytl prolly cleaned up in the NBA Pick Em game  :D

Yeah, the Finals are gay because we got two teams that flop like crazy. Whine to the officials almost all the time (see Duncan and Sheed). Clutch and grab and call it great defense. And I'm sick and tired of the broadcasters/media saying that this is "team" basketball, and this is how it's supposed to be done. blah blah blah. AND SI picked Detroit over Spurs.  :evil:

FINALLY. I can get some rest with Viyuden on hold until July. and NFL not starting till August.

All based on the new CBA

After the collective bargaining agreement is finalized, teams will be given a month to decide whether to exercise the so-called "amnesty provision."

Quote
The clause probably will lead to the end of Allan Houston's nine-year career with the New York Knicks and Michael Finley's nine-year tenure with the Dallas Mavericks. Other high-salaried players who could be released are Philadelphia 76er forward Chris Webber, Toronto Raptor guard-forward Jalen Rose, Miami Heat guard Eddie Jones and Orlando guard-forward Doug Christie. Players waived under the provision could sign with any team except the one that released them.

As a fan of the Raptors, I'm really happy about the draft overall.  I literally screamed out loud when we picked Villanueva but looking at our 2nd and 3rd picks of Graham and Ukic (amazing pick up in my opinion), I've become EXTREMELY excited about the upcoming season.

I was also surprised not many draft day trades were pulled.  If I remember correctly, it's about the same as last year's draft.  Seems like teams are afraid to pull the trigger on trades in fear of the repercussions from fans.  I know I'd call for Babcock's (the Raptors GM) head if he made the 7th+16th trade for the 3rd.

You're right.  Many casuals fans only look at individual stats to judge whether or not a player is good.  I think what really matters is if that player is a winner.

Look at Kobe...look at what happened after Shaq left.  I'm not saying Kobe isn't a good player, it's just that his production (in terms of winning) has dropped significantly after Shaq left.  Who's going to draw the defence away for him now??

As for Bogut, there's no question the guy is a versatile and agile player.  Just looking at highlights for the guy, you can tell he's going to be at least a solid center if not a star.

Bogut >>>> Longley

Did anybody read about the verbal feud between the Lakers' new young center Bynum and Shaq?  Hahahah, Shaq said he won't listen to wahtever he says cause Bynum doesn't have a college degree and that he (Bynum) should refer to Shaq as "Dr. Shaq" cause he (Shaq) is working on his Phd.

Phil Jackson loves big guards and the Lakers, now that they've agreed to trade Chucky Atkins, could offer him a starting position. However, two things are holding him back. One, the Lakers want Daniels to sign a two-year deal. This has been the Lakers mantra all summer as they try to protect potential max cap space during the summer of 2007 so that they can make a run at Yao Ming in free agency. Daniels, who turned 30 in March, wants more job security, and feels he can get it from his other suitors.

Two, new Blazers head coach Nate McMillan loved Daniels in Seattle and has been pushing to get him to come aboard as a tutor for Sebastian Telfair. The Jazz, Heat, Magic and Cavs have also shown interest in Daniels.


Sonics are losing a bunch of guys! Even Jerome James and his huge playoffs left.

Hmmm, I'm not too sure about the Houston front court.  Swift isn't exactly known for his lockdown defense and Yao seems to average a low amount of rebounds per game (relative to his size).  I would have expected him to avg at least 10 per game.

:( Its going to be hard to watch Finley play on a different team.  :(  :(  :(

"The Mavericks are trying to trade Finley to keep him out of the Western Conference and to avoid losing him without compensation. If they end up waiving him, a string of playoff contenders, including the Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs, Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets, Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat, are expected to pursue Finley."

Hmmm, about the 5-team deal, i'm not sure if Antoine Walker is the best idea for Miami.  He's way past his prime and is pretty much just a chucker.  They better petition to play with 2 balls just so Walker has something to hold on to while the game is on.

On the other hand, James Posey is an excellent talent.  Maybe not a stat stuffer like other players in their contract year but he definitely brings a tough high flying game.


Side note:  YES! TORONTO! CALDERON!! Yeah...our team is that bad that a signing like this excites me.  PAPE SOW!

HOLY FUCK!! How come I haven't heard this yet?? here's more details:
http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2122976

Quote
The new faces from the 13-player, five-team deal that also included draft picks and cash: Antoine Walker, Jason Williams, James Posey and Andre Emmett. Gone are Jones, Rasual Butler and Qyntel Woods.

The Heat believe they made a steal of a deal, and they may be right.

``I thought it was a day that we moved toward that goal of achieving what it is we want, `` Riley said Wednesday. ``It's a day that we moved toward putting together a core that's going to be together for a while.''

Williams and Posey arrived from Memphis, and were in South Florida on Wednesday to become acquainted with their new club. Emmett also comes from the Grizzlies, who received Jones in the deal that also included the Boston Celtics, New Orleans Hornets and Utah Jazz.

Damn Shaq is smart.....  if he play like he did in the last playoff.....  he basically just earn another 100 mil for nothing.

If I am miami GM, I would rather seeing him pay 30mil a year and force him to be really productive and dominante.

At this rate, Miami won't be the champion they wish they will be.  They are about 3 years too late to sign Shaq.

I'm not sure about the whole situation with SAR but I suspect he may have pulled a K-mart.  Basically he agreed to a deal with the Nets before the signing period and some other team offered him a better deal.  Purposely fail the physical and he was cleared from the contract to the Nets.

NBA players nowadays are all such punks; there are only a handful of genuine guys in the NBA.  I would consider Tim Duncan, Ray Allen, and Michael Redd to be a few of them.

It's like you make a Fantasy Team. pick the players from game to game, and collect points based on stats (steals, points, assists, blocks, etc.). The more points the better. And you have to keep in mind of who is hot, who is cold. Injuries. and like "dark horse" players. guys who have breakout years.

I am still stunned Scottie Pippen is in Lakers gear. Just to teach Odom how to be a point forward.

San Antonio trailed most of the second half until Finley hit a 19-footer to put the Spurs up 79-78 with about nine minutes remaining in the game.

Finley, who finished with 16 points, then hit another jumper followed by a 3-pointer.

The Spurs went 13-for-16 from the field in the fourth quarter.


 He could be doing that in Dallas. . . . . .

He scored more than the shooting gaurd Ginobili! He came off the bench.

check out these wild rumors:

KG Getting Traded?; Sprewell a Good Teammate?    
http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/basketball/bulls/cs-051107smith,1,2574592.column?coll=cs-bulls-utility

Excerpts:

I can't believe I'm mentioning this -- and I may even write myself one of those raging reader letters accusing myself of being nuts -- but what about Latrell Sprewell for the Bulls?

Big guard, plays defense, can score. Yes, the Bulls need that guy after being burned in consecutive games for 28 apiece from the shooting guards. OK, one was Vince Carter in the loss Saturday to the Nets. But the Bobcats' Gerald Wallace? Plus, how about that 23-4 rebounding deficit in the starting backcourt against the Nets?

No one is the face of evil in the NBA more than Sprewell, whether it's from the P.J. Carlisimo choking incident or the infamous comment that he needed to feed his family when the Timberwolves offered him a $7 million annual contract down from $14 million. He's still unemployed and in need of late-career resurrection, so presumably he'd come cheaply. But would he destroy the team? Hey, we once thought Dennis Rodman could. So how bad is Sprewell? I asked the NBA's Mr. Nice Guy, former teammate Fred Hoiberg, now a Timberwolves assistant.

"Spree was a great teammate," insisted Hoiberg. "People, unfortunately, see the bad part, and maybe it's his fault because he gives the impression he doesn't care [what people think]. But he's a guy who had lunch catered for the team every day. He's the kind of guy who'll do anything for a teammate. He's very personable. His main objective is winning. He feeds off people yelling at him. Playoff time, he takes his game to another level. The true judge of a person is what Mark Madsen thinks of you, and Mark said he's one of the best teammates he's ever had. He'll make a great teammate for whoever picks him up."

Let's make a deal

I'm still working on my Kevin Garnett-for-Dirk Nowitzki deal. Garnett might be working on one too. Garnett is stuck with a mix of rookies and role-playing veterans on what looks like a non-playoff Timberwolves team again. He skipped the famed preseason lunch for local business and civic leaders, the same one that Sprewell and Sam Cassell skipped last year, leading to a season of discontent for both. Garnett, not a media favorite in Minneapolis, was testy when asked about his absence, saying: "Miscommunication. I wasn't there." Asked if it was a statement, he said: "What kind of statement? I'm not those guys. I don't create statements like that. Statements come from the mouth, not from actions." The word around the NBA is some teams are holding up on possible trades to see whether the Garnett situation deteriorates and he asks to be traded. They don't want to move assets they might need to acquire a player like Garnett.

FUCK!! Dallas if that happens XD XD
Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: ytl on November 08, 2005, 08:53:38 AM
So you don't care if Dallas lose Nowitzki?  What will Dallas get in return if that happens?  It's not like in the past when there were only 1 or 2 teams standing out of the rest of the league.  I don't see that trade would make Dallas immediate Championship.  So far the addition of Finley and NVE actually hurt Spurs more than help it.  

Haha, so that was Timas X's team.  I am still hope that those 2nd-tiers and last year rookies I drafted can give me some good return.  So far half of them are quite inconsistent.... tempting me to waive them.  I still really pissed about how I didn't cash on Redd's 70pts in 2 games perf in the fantasy.  I am still mad at myself.

Man, who would have thought J. Rich would become such all around player?  Not me........
And I guess I am kinda lucky that the players I picked so far is still healthy.  Touch wood.

West is shaping out wack...Clipps keep winning. Lakers keep fucking up. Another last minute loss, this time to da Bulls. Kobe dropping 43 (see SICK behind the back and lay in) but what the fuck. If he goes down (he had some side ab injury but shook it off) Lakers are screwed. Forget Kwame, Bynum is looked good with a couple good blocks.


I like this. Lebron going to the Nets when they move outta New Jersey and go to Brooklyn XD

Quote

Kanye West, P. Diddy and even bitter rival Nas joined Jay-Z at last month's star-studded Powerhouse rap concert at the Meadhowlands. But the rappers also shared the stage with a special Jay-Z guest: LeBron James.
The Nets' part-owner and Cleveland Cavaliers' superstar have been close friends for years. That's why Cleveland papers have speculated that James could join Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and the Nets once he becomes a free agent after the 2007-2008 season.

"He is a family member," says Carter, who co-founded the Roc-A-Fella record label. "He has a Roc-A-Gella chain on his neck. If we don't have the money or we are not committed to winning, I don't want him to come here. You know what I'm saying?

"Who wouldn't want to have LeBron?" Carter continues. "That is like every owner's dream as far as ticket sales, excitement and winning. But I would never use my friendship to get it at a bargain price or to do anything underhanded. If my money is right and the team is in order and he believes he has a chance to win the championship in the future, then why wouldn't he listen?"

When James cut ties with agent Aaron Goodwin earlier this year, several media outlets reported that James might join Carter's Def Jam Recordings, something Carter denies.

"I heard that when LeBron's whole thing was going crazy," says Carter, Def Jam's president and CEO. "I don't know where that came from."

Carter is close to several players including James, Knick guard Jamal Crawford and Blaizers point guard Sebastian Telfair - all three of them played on Carter's Rucker League team.

As for James, a Nets source says he fully expects the player to remain in Cleveland. The Nets would have to clear loads of cap space or execute a blockbuster sign-and-trade involving Vince Carter or Richard Jefferson to get James.

"I cant predict the future and I don't know what might happen between now and when I sign my next contract," James told the Cleveland Plain Dealer last month. "Something might come up and something might not. My focus right now is being a Cavalier."

Commissioner David Stern says he has no problem with an owner interacting with opposing players as long as it does not include tampering.

"We have relationships all around the league," Stern says. "I don't think that Jay-Z and LeBron are any different."

Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: daigong on December 12, 2005, 12:22:25 AM
I got that Pippen speech and the whole ceremony. Checkout Mixmaker.net...:cry: check out his takes on:

Whom he would pay to watch: Kobe [Bryant]. San Antonio as a team. They play team basketball and beat you with consistency. Cuttino Mobley. A hard worker who wants to win. Dwyane Wade. He brings a lot to the game. I like guys who play hard and not just on one end. [Tracy] McGrady just scores; same with Ray Allen and Steve Francis. I can watch [Allen] Iverson. I'm not as big a fan. You get tired of seeing one guy shoot the ball all the time. I'd rather watch Steve Nash, even though sometimes he dribbles too much. [Dirk] Nowitzki, I don't like his game. If I could still play, I'd guard him every time. He plays one end of the court. You have to hide him on defense. When McGrady guarded him, he was done. I like [Ron] Artest, though I'm not sure he can keep it up, very exciting, fundamentally sound. He just doesn't bring it from a mental standpoint. Carmelo Anthony? The NBA kills some of these guys. Here's a guy who wants a maximum contract. What have the Denver Nuggets ever done? Have they won a division? Where are they this year?"

Michael Jordan: "He made basketball fun, even more than anyone can imagine it being. We were two guys competing against one another every day. You knew every day you went to practice it wasn't going to be boring."


Being the sidekick: "You always have to understand the pecking order. I knew I wasn't going to be bigger than Michael. I had to find my niche and I accepted that."

Shaquille O'Neal: "I can respect Shaq. Everyone gets old in the game. He's on the downside. I went through that. I still like watching him play. He's an X-factor whenever he's on the court."

Charles Barkley: "Probably one my greatest competitors. He's one guy who really helped me take my game to another level, understanding how to rebound the ball and power it out into a fast break. He'd hit you a cheap shot here and there, but at the end of the day you had a lot of respect for him."

Who's like him
: "From an individual standpoint, Tayshaun Prince."

His career highlight, the Dream Team: "As a kid growing up, it was always a dream to be a part of the Olympics. And then to play with Magic [Johnson], it was the biggest highlight. I wasn't the type of guy to pull out a camera and take pictures, but I wanted to."

Kevin Garnett: "He really set the tone for self-destruction. He's very productive but unproductive. He gets you all the stats you want, but at the end of the day his points don't have an impact on [winning] the game. He plays with a lot of energy and a lot of enthusiasm, but in the last five minutes of the game he ain't the same player as in the first five."

Houston: "In all fairness, I don't even want to be remembered for playing there. It was a bad situation for me. I didn't realize what I was stepping into. I thought Dream [Hakeem Olajuwon] was better than he was. I didn't realize he was dead. I'd just come off my second back surgery. My game was limited, but no one knew it. I had a dead foot. It's still dead today. When I went to camp we were thinking the nerve would regenerate. Playing in Houston was such a step back from what I was accustomed to, the way things were run, how disorganized practice was, guys late all the time. It's the little things that destroy a team. Things were too casual for me. I needed to get to L.A. and Phil [Jackson]."

Portland: "It was cool, but [GM Bob] Whitsitt destroyed the team. We got to the [conference] finals and he brings in Shawn Kemp. He trades Jermaine O'Neal. The sad part is we weren't even together a year and he destroys the team. Then he got all the crazier players, athletes but dumb players. I'd have Rasheed [Wallace] on my team anytime. He's a smart player."

Today's players: "Look at the travel. They have all these CDs. They're gone one day and they have a library of music. They're not thinking about basketball. We'd get on the plane and Phil would pop in a tape and we'd watch the game. See a shot or a move. Then we'd get up the next day and have a film session."

Favorite moment: "Guarding Magic in the '91 [Finals]. That was huge for me. I always wanted to guard Magic. I always felt I could defend him. Even though I idolized him, it came to a point where I wanted to put myself ahead of someone like that. I asked to guard him from the beginning. After Michael got in foul trouble, I got him."

It was a long time coming though...Ron Jeremy doesn't have that killer instinct and fuckin Riles drafted and built this team. It could be the owner putting heat on Riles to produce a winner with that Walker, White Chocolate trades. Or blame Shaq. He was the one who said he wanted to play for Riles.

Whatever. I wouldn't get caught up in all that media gossip. Pat Riley is one of the best coaches ever cuz it takes a good coach to coach the best players. Imagine the defense he can get outta Shaq now!!

Why don't you hire Chuck Daly and other coach then?  They won championships before too.....  Riley won the championships with the 80s Lakers......which is the dream team of dream team like the Bulls...... after that, he sucked in NY and in Miami.  Remember how he chickened out when Miami was lottery team?  And after SVG has put a lot of effort to make it a deep playoff game again, he just kick SVG's butt and come back to coach.  This is just not right, but it's his team so no one can really do anything anyways.  However that still doesn't justify his selfish action.

Shaq is done and won't win a championship again.  He shouldn't win a championship from the start imo.  He ruined the NBA and made it a WWE version of basketball.  I will be very glad to see the heat breaks down and burn.

Sorry guys...been sidetracked with admin shit and forgot about submitting the draft results. Let's do NBA.com or ESPN.com? I got an account at ESPN.com still lol

Likewise, all offline draft leagues must complete and enter their information, and hit the Begin Season button by 11:59 pm PT on December 15.

In an offline draft, your league conducts its own draft without the aid of the Yahoo! Sports computers (via telephone, in a meeting, via email, etc.) The format of an offline draft is up to the league commissioner and managers.

When the draft is done, the league commissioner must submit the results to us via the Submit Draft Results option available on his/her Commissioner Tools page.

Also, please note that no teams will be able to join a league once any portion of the draft results have been entered.


:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:


NBA All Star 1st round of  results are in:
http://www.nba.com/news/allstar2006_051117.html
Yao leads all players with 729,178 votes. The Houston Rockets’ Tracy McGrady leads all Western Conference forwards with 600,507 votes, followed by Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Garnett (469,497). Bryant (664,744) and the Phoenix Suns’ Steve Nash (562,846), the 2004-05 NBA Most Valuable Player, lead all Western Conference guards.

LB James leads all Eastern Conference players with 665,849 votes, followed by Shaq O’Neal (646,085). The Indiana Pacers’ Jermaine O’Neal (387,893) is second to James among Eastern Conference forwards. The MVP of the 2005 NBA All-Star Game, Allen Iverson of the Philadelphia 76ers, leads all Eastern Conference guards (638,999), followed by the Heat’s Dwyane Wade (479,774).

Mavericks' Darrell Armstrong fined for cheering Redskins

It's going to cost him $1,000.

Dallas coach Avery Johnson announced the fine during his postgame news conference and team owner Mark Cuban later verified it was legit, much to the chagrin of a disbelieving Armstrong. The money will all go to charity, with Johnson saying the Cowboys would decide the recipient.

The Redskins wrapped up a 35-7 victory over the Cowboys shortly before the Mavericks left the locker room to play the Timberwolves.

As part of the pregame ceremonies, guard Devin Harris wished the crowd a happy holiday. Then Armstrong, who wasn't scheduled to speak, asked for the microphone. He added his holiday wishes, then made his fine-inducing proclamation, a twist on a famous line by former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson.

A mixture of laughter and boos followed, even from German import Dirk Nowitzki. Cuban laughed, too, and joked with Armstrong about it when he returned to the bench.


NOW that's fucked up.

Laker boy, did you watch the game?  It's Mike Miller driving and Kobe try to foul him, grabbed his arm and end up hitting hiw own face by Miller's arm and have a bleed eye.  Then he retaliated when Miller drive again, but this time Miller passed the ball out and Kobe just raise his elbow and kinda move forward to hit his throat.

Take it back how?

I did Rockets boy. Miller drove the lane, Kobe tried to block, and Miller arm went down and slapped Kobe. I am watching that clip over and over. Slow motion. This happens in the NBA all the time. Hard fouls is part of the game. Easy layups, dunks are not allowed. Everyone should get suspended all the time. You enjoy the Euro game then go back to the 50's where they wear John Stockton shorts and swap spit. Welcome to The Man's game. Today's NBA. Yeah, it seems WWE to you but that's The Code.

I remember last year Manu tried to drive the lane and Shaq forearm shivered him. No flagrant. No ejection. No suspension. It's bias because of Kobe's legal case.

And just keep getting jealous ytl. What's this? Kobe earns player of the week honors again? Where is T-Mac??  :D

Bryant earned the Western Conference award after averaging 33.8 points with 5.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest last week, helping the Lakers to a 3-1 record.

Oh, I guess you didn't notice the rules of NBA get changed often.  If those touchy fouls are now being called, it is impossible to not call Kobe's foul a flagrant.  Moreover, Stern has already stated from now on he will be more strict on players' behaviour both on and off the court and that's why we have dress code this year.

Quit whinning, follow the rules and ask your boy don't break them if he doesn't want suspension.  Not even Phil can stand for him this time.  The foul you were talking about is in the past and now the rule has changed, also the league is getting stricter.  I guess if Kobe didn't rape in the first place, the NBA won't need to change the rule and try to improve its reputation.

How's the Karma tastes?  

Wait till Artest coming to play for you.  I so want to see another great year of Lakers soap drama.  I love how laker fans bash Kobe now coz his shooting has plummeted, I guess that 62 pts perf can only happens a few times a year.  He still is a ball hog and Lakers basically will put themselves out of the playoff soon.  Didn't you hear about Odom getting tired of pretending like playing with Kobe already?  How's Smush playing lately?  He was all woo and ah in the begining of the season, now he doesn't even get to shoot many...... I guess it's not Kobe's fault again?

Regard to Rockets, bleh..... I don't really care.  I liked them but they are really not up for it this season.  Stromile and Alston are busts, others first team players are all injured except T-Mac now, and even T-Mac is a disappointment too compare to his Orlando days.  Worst of all, they get to stick with that stubborn Jeff Van Gundy aka no offence for another couple years.  

I am glad I wasn't such a fanboy to pick T-Mac in the fantasy league.    :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Kobe Bryant scored 45 points, making him the first player to score at least that many in four consecutive games in more than 41 years, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Indiana Pacers 96-90 Monday night for their third straight victory.

The last player to score at least 45 or more points in four consecutive games was Wilt Chamberlain in November 1964, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

agreed, if u r saying making crappy nobodies into somebodies, thats more like Lamar Odom's job since he is making most of the plays and kobe just jack up a 3s (kobe right now is more like iverson before he learned to pass) kobe is getting too much credit on the lakers because he scores a lot?! that doesn't make him a good player

There you go. The fact Lamar is among the tops in assists among forwards is the reason why Kobe the facilitator, the go-to-guy makes Lamar into a star. The triangle has been tough on him but the glass has opened up a lot. Kobe gets double, triple teamed every game yet calmly pulls wins out of his ass or as in a recent Pacer game, opened up the floor for others to make the easy basket.

Favorite SPORTS? Teams? Players?

I love SPORTS...basketball, soccer, tennis, Ice-Hockey....etc.  I think the only sport that I'm not interested at all is curling.  I would say basketball is my favorite sport because of MJ.  MJ is my all-time favorite sport player.  Pistons is my favorite team for the last few years since R. Wallace joined the team.  Among the active players, i like V. Carter, T.Mac, Wade, Yao...damn there are so many...btw...i'm not a Kobe hater...i do think he is an amazing player...but i don't think he is a good team player and i don't think he deserves to be the MVP yet...he takes way too many shots a game and it doesn't make any good for his teammates...that just my opinion...no offense :)

OFF TOPIC:  I'm a big time Rika's fan and i really miss your previous avatar...don't get me wrong...i like your new avatar but i just like the previous one better. :lol:

T-Mac right now... HAHAHA.. i don't even consider him as an all-star anymore, few years ago when he knew the meaning of penetration, he was an all-star to me, right now.. he just brings the ball down... take a three.. no one rebounds... back on D.... to tell you the truth, i think T-mac/few other players on rockets have been an obstacle in the growth of Yao Ming (who was supposed to have a bust out last yr? and also supposely this yr), I mean i remember the Phoenix game... Mr. Boris 6'8 Diaw was on Yao Ming down in the post... ummm wait... Wesley/Head?! took the ball down, Yao Ming posting up against Boris 6'8 Diaw... O WAIT! GENIUS TEAMMATES thought taking a 3-pt is better than passing the ball to Yao Ming for him to dunk on Boris Diaw!!!... and Yao Ming wasn't even double teamed CUZ THEY DON'T HAVE TO!!! CUZ THEY DON'T PASS HIM THE BALL!!!!!! anyways... Houston is so messed up at the moment...

Well u can probably tell i am crazy about basketball ha.. also watch a lot of "American" Football not the sissy soccer, and sometimes baseball. Favorite player? umm, can't think of one but i can tell you many active player whom i hate in many sports... example Vince "overratedcantplaydefensewatsoever" Carter, Tom Brady and of course all the Michigan Wolverines players...

btw... if jackson really want to run the triangle offense, i would tell him to consider trading odom cuz he doesn't really fit in there (even though he is a good player) kobe-odom-walton, i would prob go for that trio but... again odom doesn't really fit in there, and not really a Kobe hater, i just like shaq more if i have to choose between them... a team needs shaq more than kobe, thats all

Hahaha... its so funny cuz I feel the exact same way! :lol:  :lol:

About Carter... I might be biased here cuz I live in Toronto, but anyone who follows Raptors basketball last year knows just how big of a pussy he is and the shit he brings on the court.

When he was still playin with the Raps, he NEVER gave it his 100%, he would NEVER give a fuck if his team win or loses just as long as he gets his fuckin cheque, and he would NEVER drive to the hole cuz if someone lays even a finger on him, he would've been out for 4-6weeks due to a fracture ankle or some other bullshit. All part of the reason why the homecourt fans boo'd him in Toronto before the trade.

The sport analysis from TSN, The Score, Sportsnet, and other sport broadcasting channels all agreed that he needed to step up and fulfill the leader position of the team.  But what does he do? Hides behind his mom from the media... literally.

well the thng with heat is that

Shaq is still playing somewat decent well, just that everyone is taking more shots in game.. so shaq daddy doesn't score that much anymore

Shaq - about 12 FG attempt in a game (dropped from 15 last yr)
Walker - jacks up about 15 3-pter in a game (makes only 1.. just about)
Haslem - takes about 5-10 shots per game
Posey - takes about 5-10 shots, mostly 3-pointers
J Williams - average 11 attempts per game
Wade - about 20 attempts per game
Payton - about 5-8 attemps per game
Mourning - 3-5 attempts
-----------
shaq doesn't have that many chances to shoot in a game anymore so his #s goes down a little, but he is just da shaq daddy who dunks on everyone

and also... he still cant make his free throws :P

As much of a ball hog that he is, he was the reason the Lakers won that game.   The Raps were up by as much as 17 and Kobe TOOK OVER. There is no way in hell his team would've won if Kobe wasn't firing shots the way he did.

I am sure he will try to break Wilt's record next time.  Raptors should fire Sam Mitchell on the scene to save their club from further humiliation.......they were leading 18pts at the begining of the 2nd half.

81pts is phenominal sure, but I bet MJ could have done it too if he has that hand check rule back in the days.

We just see how the scoring in NBA skyrocketed after the rule changed, same to NHL too.  So it's more like the result of right timing plus hot shooting night.  I want to see if someone can get another quadriple double more than just one dimensional scoring.

Definitely. The rest of the Lakers' players need to step up their games so that the brunt of the load isn't on Kobe's shoulders.  Sure he's their go-to guy and all, but still, if for any reason he's out of commission, they're going to be totally screwed if the other players can't take their game to the next level.

I don't see the step up of other teammate will matter at all...... I remembered he got one triple double right after a game ppl complained he shoots too much...... so it's still depends on Kobe's decision.  He wants to share the rock or not.  Not even PJ's decision will matter in this case.

thats the thing about kobe, i don't really care how many points he is able to score in one game, he will never be the best all-time player in my book, right now (if i am able to build a NBA team) i can list at least over 20 people that i will want on the team before i even consider kobe

on the sports center the other day, forgot who said it... "kobe is definitely MVP this year" why?.. just becz he can score a lot?! i don't see how that make him a great player, just mediocre

Now this does'nt mean that he should be mvp but he does make a big impact on the team.  and as far as better player goes, its hard to tell unless they go one on one.  If you're on a good team, the skill level of yer teammates make you a better player.  Its harder to play well when you're on a bad team, would wade have been able to score 81 pts if he were in koby's shoes with the (lol)Lakers in any given scenario? seriously doubt that

The Cavs limited him to 27 points the other night

and of course, kobe will never score 81 points on shaq, but if he does? thats the night shaq will break Wilt Chamberlain's single game scoring record

Sure Kobe is a decent player, he can score he cant shoot but he cant play with a team thats why Odom isn't playing to his full potential... look at Odom when he was back with HEAT, man he was all-star material, doing almost everything that he can for the team but I don't blame the HEAT for trading Odom for Shaq cuz every team can use a Shaq.

I even consider Chris Paul a better player than Kobe Bryant, sure Chris Paul is 1st yr player, they aren't gonna win a lot of games but he has brought the team together with his game.... the team is young with David West but the Hornets are gonna be scary in a few years.

Steve Nash was named MVP last year cuz he was able to bring the Suns together, he brought out Amare Stoudemire to his full potential, also the best out of Joe Johnson and Quentin Richardson. this is one thing that Kobe will never able to do in his career with the way he is playing. Wade was also able to bring out the BEST out of Shaq, Damon Jones last yr but that team was still not the best, but improving. The Lakers will not even get close on winning the title if kobe keep playing like this (sure they probably might make the playoff 7th or 8th seed) and get knocked off the 1st round 4-0 or 4-1

Nobody can help the current laker team, not even wade. if he were an addition yes but otherwise.... .  As far as wade bringing out the best in shaq, last year it was more of the rivalry/anamosity between him and kobe that brought the best out of shaq.  Fortunatly for the heat, its things like this that motivates a player to do his best.  
In shaq's last year with the lakers, he was fat, out of shape and lazy.  It was'nt because of kobe's inability to make him a better player, shaq was skipping practices on purpose and comeing in late all the time.  why do you think jerry buss told the media that if he would have known that shaq would have gotten back in shape and lost all that weight, he never would have traded him.

I agree that if Wade was on the Lakers, he can bring the best out of his teammates better than Kobe can cuz Kobe isn't exactly a playmaker. But I can assure you if Kobe was on the Heat in their current roster right now, the HEAT will easily DOMINATE the entire league.

Kobe is a ball-hog, but can you blame him? Look at the Lakers line-up. The second go-to guy is Odom and he's playin like shit right now.  Yeah, he was pretty good playing with the Heat and the Clippers, but now he's just overrated. Whenever I see him with the ball... scratch that... whenever I see him on the COURT, he can somehow, in some way, does something so retarded that results in a Lakers turnover.

=====
Example #1: Lakers vs. Kings (Jan 19) - With less than 30 seconds to go and up by 2(?), Odom has the ball. The smart thing to do at this point is to play out the clock and try to get a good looking shot. Instead, he tried to be the hero and drives to the hole to get the basket. He was called for a charge, turns the ball over, King ties the game forcing overtime and won the game in the end.

Example #2: Lakers vs. Raptors (Jan 22) - This is more of a subtle thing but... Odom has the ball, decides to drive to the hole, does a little spin move to shake off his defender... but spun right INTO Mihm, his own fuckin teammate. The ball was loose, he fell to the ground, turnover. I was on the ground as well, laughing my ass off.
=====

These were just some of the things on the top of my head.

I don't mind people saying Kobe sucks or Kobe don't do shit for his teammates cuz everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I respect that. But imagine this. If Kobe develops the sense of sharing the rock and making his teammates better, mixed in with the way his is playing now, I'd say that is the closest anyone in the league in being a resemblance to Jordan.

u just made my point, Kobe is unable to play with people cuz he is a ball-hog... no matter how good his teammate is, he just can't play with them. I mean Shaq was the best teammate that everyone wants on the team and kobe refuses to pass the ball when shaq can get good shots in result shaq became fat n lazy and wanted to get away from kobe

shaq would NOT have gotten back in shape for kobe becz he is not a good teammate and he did the right thing and found Dwayne Wade

if u replace dwayne wade with kobe on HEAT, that team is gonna fall apart.... COMPLETELY
1. shaq is gonna fight with kobe, shaq gets fat again
2. no one else would be able to shoot beside kobe
3. HEAT is focus more on teamwork and kobe got none

yes i can blame him, kobe makes himself look better by making his teammate worse, thats exactly wat he is right now... Put Lamar Odom on another team (well drugless team), he would perform better.

responding to the last sentence, "IF" he can learn to play as a team, then yes he might become like jordan but he is unable to do that as his current state

I honestly don't see how they will fall apart... aside from the feud between Kobe and Shaq which seems to have ended.  

Quote from: scrock7

3. HEAT is focus more on teamwork and kobe got none

1. Again, the feud has ended.  Will there be another battle? Most likely... but we will never know.
2. Shaq, Payton, Walker, and Williams all know how to score and are capable of scoring when Kobe is on the bench... unlike some players from the Lakers.
3. You honestly don't think Kobe has teamwork?? If you answered yes, then I guess that means he was the sole reason the Lakers was able to win 3 NBA titles with Shaq.  Like I said in my last post, Kobe "ball-hogs" cuz he has no one to depend on, not ONLY because he wants to, but because he HAS to as well, which brings me to my next point.

Quote from: scrock7

It's hard enough for a leader to make his teammates better, and it's even harder to make shit players into all-stars, and this is what you're asking Kobe to do. His teammates are the ones making themselves look like idiots by not producing and not contributing. If Phil Jackson believes his players are capable to win games without the points Kobe is putting up for the team, you think he'll let Kobe jack up all those shots? You think if there is a problem with Kobe being a ball-hog all the time, Phil is just gonna sit on his ass and not take any action? The sad truth is, Phil knows the only way the Lakers are going to win any games this season is to let Kobe take over. If there is anyone you should blame, is Phil Jackson.

what a lame excuse, so superstars can't be lazy just for the sake of being lazy and did kobe force shaq go to mcdonalds and eat all those bigmacs  :D

So if shaq is the bestest player that everbody wants to be with, why did he leave orlando, and who was he trying to get away from???

like SS said if kobe can win back to back to back championships by being a ball hog then he should be ball hog more often.  Shaq for the most part put up some big numbers while he was in L.A., how was he able to do this if he never got the ball?

You guys forgot Karl Malone and Payton, they all hated Kobe......

Kobe said Malone harassed his wife, Payton now go with Shaq rather than stay with Kobe.  Malone gave up on Kobe and call it quits.

If Kobe isn't the biggest selfish chemistry destroying loser, I don't know what else I can call him for.

Odom is just sadly the next victims after all those HOFs who disillusioned that they could have won a ring with the not so bad Kobe before..... they all learned their lessons after that.

Now IF Kobe goes to Miami, first Shaq will demand trade, Payton follows....... Jay Will will be back to his old self jacking up 3s all game long, and Antoine Walker will dribble the ball till someone stole it away or shoot all those crazy 3s.  Mourning probably will retire like Malone.  I don't see Miami will be better off to have Kobe than Wade.

wow, u might have made the stupidest comment i have ever heard... I will say i am wrong if kobe can win even "1" championship with this team when he is the biggest ball hog

the Lakers were able to win back to back to back championship becz kobe wasn't the one who brought the ball down the court (Derek Fisher) and also they were actually RUNNING the triangle offense instead of just having kobe shoot everytime he touches the ball

which brought to another point, High School students going for at least 1 yr of college is good cuz they will be disciplined with teamwork unlike mr. kobe over there who is still acting like a kid

well shaq left Orlando becz he felt like it... wat r u gonna do about it

So soley because of the triangle and fisher were the lakers able to win the 3 championships? How about the fact that he was on a team with a great starting 5 and a good bench, where he did'nt feel the need to hog the ball because there were COMPETENT players on his team at that TIME.  Doesnt matter who brought the ball down the court, the ball would eventually come into kobe's hands, and kobe being such a big part of the triangle they never would have been able to win those championships if he were to ballhog

In kobe's early years with the Lakers, the media was all over kobe for being a ball hog, since then he's learned to distribute the ball.  The only reason he ball hogs now is because his CURRENT team is crap, even the media has stated this.  I'm mean for crying out loud he scored 81 pts, don't you think the media would be talking shit about kobe if he was unfairly hogging the ball without reason, which the media hasnt

Lol, who gives a crap about malone and payton, they were in it for the quick championship.  I'm glad they did'nt get it, malone should have just played out his career with the jazz.  and maybe kobe will start passing the ball to odom more if he stopped handing it over to the other team  :lol:

You guys are acting as if Kobe has all the authority in his ball club and can do whatever the fuck he wants, when he wants... but guess what... he doesn't, the head coach does.

So my question is, if Kobe's ball-hogging and lack of teamwork is such a problem, why hasn't Phil Jackson stepped in and take control of the matter?

You ppl really need to take out the kobe's X from your mouth...... PJ actually doesn't like that way of playing ball.  Remember he and Kobe doesn't see each other back in the Dynasty days?  I guess you must be very forgetful...... PJ comes back more because Jerry Buss asked him to and more importantly, Jerry Buss's daughter is PJ's girlfriend.  And everyone thought Kobe would have learned his lesson for one year of no playoff.  But nop, Kobe is one determined guy, determined to go his own way.......

Quote from cnnsi.

"To be honest with you, that's not exactly the way you want to have a team win a game," said Jackson, who actually cringes every time Bryant turns a game into a one-man show. "But when you have to win a game, it's great to be able to have that weapon to do it with."

PJ makes game plan, but it's Kobe to execute the plan or not.  And he chose not to most of the time......

Oh, did I forget to mention that Kobe do have the authority in the Lakers organization because they thought they are going to build the team around Kobe?  That's why they traded Shaq away coz they think he is going to get too old and want him out before he doesn't worth shit.  Shaq and Kobe can't get along anyways, and Kobe even said he is not going to re-sign if Shaq stays.

Oh and Phil doesnt like this way of playing ball? lmao. Remember phil's dynasty days? You are correct, and anybody that tries to compare Phil's dynasty days with his current shit team called that lakers must be smoking crack. please get some help

about the quote from cnnsi, ofcourse thats not how you want to win a basketball game, thats the most basic fundamental of basketball.  Kobe knows that, Phil knows that, but when you're on a shit team and your 18 pts down in the 1st qtr, phil has no choice but to unleash kobe.  Tell me where phil says that kobe disobeys his orders by taking over the game

kobe currently does have authority within the lakers, like duh, thats because he IS the lakers, nobody there cept kobe.  Do you seriously think that phil would put up with kobe's crap during the championship days, hell no, thats because he wasnt the main show.  there were many times back then when phil pulled kobe out of the game when he wasnt listening.  its not until when shaq started getting lazy that they put more focus on kobe.

Quote from the article, "I am sure Phil doesn't want to coach that type of game. It's not his style. I don't expect it to happen again. Phil will probably do everything in his power to make sure it doesn't. I don't think Phil is going to try to promote what Kobe has done more than anything because he has damaged his whole team. You just scored 81 points. Do you need your teammates? Are they going to step up when you need them or are you going to continue to pound them like you've been doing and be selfish just to get some individual accolades?"

I agree that Kobe is the main attraction in terms of $$ making within the Lakers, but I don't think thats the ONLY reason why people pay to see their home team.  You make it sound like it doesn't matter if the team loses, as long as Kobe continues to put up big numbers, Jackson isn't going to do shit about the "problem".

But you pretty much proved my point though. You honestly think the fans would continue to pay money to watch Kobe play even if the Laker loses every single game from here on out? Again, you make it sound like they will, but I'd say they won't.

Nope, ur point was not proven, fans will still see their favorite player playing regardless how bad the team is. People still pay tickets to see LeBron James even though the team is not the greatest, improving but yet disappointing

Well sure it doesn't really matter if they win or lose, as long as the games are sold out, owners are happy they are making $$... As long as kobe will attract fans with his ball-hog skills, i mean sure the owner will keep him as long as he can (then eventually fans will realize how stupid they were, and its time for kobe to find the next team to destroy)

and oh yeah, if you think numbers mean everything in the game of basketball, wow.... no wonder u don't understand the game

ya its funny he is a ball hog, and he won't be the greatest ever... Championship doesn't define the greatness of a single player, it defines the team, the TEAM won the championship, NOT kobe alone, which means 3 Lakers Championship doesn't mean Kobe's ball-hogness made it happen... most of the time its ROBERT HORRY, Derek Fisher making crucial plays, hitting those last second 3s to win the game.

GENIOUS, this is good stuff!!! first you say championship doesnt define the greatness of a single player, it defines the TEAM, the TEAM. and then you say it was just horry and fisher.  Well who were the ones scoring all the points to keep the game close so that horry would have a chance to make a last second 3, since were on this subject you must be talking about the lakers kings playoff game where horry didnt score a single point before he made that three. In that game lakers were down by as much as 24 pts in the first half, it was a team effort by the lakers to make the game close and win.  If you really think that just fisher and horry won those close games for the lakers, you really are a dumbass and dont know anything about basketball

Well sure it doesn't really matter if they win or lose, as long as the games are sold out, owners are happy they are making $$... As long as kobe will attract fans with his ball-hog skills, i mean sure the owner will keep him as long as he can (then eventually fans will realize how stupid they were, and its time for kobe to find the next team to destroy)

and oh yeah, if you think numbers mean everything in the game of basketball, wow.... no wonder u don't understand the game

ya its funny he is a ball hog, and he won't be the greatest ever... Championship doesn't define the greatness of a single player, it defines the team, the TEAM won the championship, NOT kobe alone, which means 3 Lakers Championship doesn't mean Kobe's ball-hogness made it happen... most of the time its ROBERT HORRY, Derek Fisher making crucial plays, hitting those last second 3s to win the game. Umm wait, I don't see Kobe coming through for his teammates

First of all, when the FUCK did I say numbers mean everything???


Second, yes my point was proven. Let's review:

-Your answer to my question regarding why Phil doesn't take action in Kobe's "ball-hogging" problem was becuz Kobe generates $$.

-I then added fans would not continue to come to games to watch their team lose in which you responded that fans will still see their favorite player playing regardless how bad the team is.

-You also said if Phil bench kobe for the game... then fans won't come, owner makes no $$ = Phil Jackson fired = no $$ for Phil.

Well guess what... if the team is playing like crap and becomes one of the worst teams in the NBA, the owners will blame all the negative feedbacks from the media and fans towards the responsibility of the head coach = Phil Jackson fired = no $$ for Phil. So in the end it all comes back to my initial question, "Why isn't Phil doing anything to solve the problem?"


Lastly, do you know what  :roll: means? I'm sure you do, but in case you don't, it means that I was being sarcastic. I know it wasn't Kobe ALONE that won the 3 championships. But I'm glad you posted that last bit tho, cuz you once again proved another one of both mine and Jsmurf points, as quoted below.

Quote from: Jsmurf
How about the fact that he was on a team with a great starting 5 and a good bench, where he did'nt feel the need to hog the ball because there were COMPETENT players on his team at that TIME.

So soley because of the triangle and fisher were the lakers able to win the 3 championships? How about the fact that he was on a team with a great starting 5 and a good bench, where he did'nt feel the need to hog the ball because there were COMPETENT players on his team at that TIME.  Doesnt matter who brought the ball down the court, the ball would eventually come into kobe's hands, and kobe being such a big part of the triangle they never would have been able to win those championships if he were to ballhog

Exactly. :thumbsup

You guys are acting as if Kobe has all the authority in his ball club and can do whatever the fuck he wants, when he wants... but guess what... he doesn't, the head coach does.

So my question is, if Kobe's ball-hogging and lack of teamwork is such a problem, why hasn't Phil Jackson stepped in and take control of the matter?

Answer me that before anyone else say some shit like, "Kobe needs to stop acting like a kid" or "Kobe is a ball-hog and costing his team games".


You ppl really need to take out the kobe's X from your mouth...... PJ actually doesn't like that way of playing ball.  Remember he and Kobe doesn't see each other back in the Dynasty days?  I guess you must be very forgetful...... PJ comes back more because Jerry Buss asked him to and more importantly, Jerry Buss's daughter is PJ's girlfriend.  And everyone thought Kobe would have learned his lesson for one year of no playoff.  But nop, Kobe is one determined guy, determined to go his own way.......

Quote from cnnsi.

"To be honest with you, that's not exactly the way you want to have a team win a game," said Jackson, who actually cringes every time Bryant turns a game into a one-man show. "But when you have to win a game, it's great to be able to have that weapon to do it with."

PJ makes game plan, but it's Kobe to execute the plan or not.  And he chose not to most of the time......

Oh, did I forget to mention that Kobe do have the authority in the Lakers organization because they thought they are going to build the team around Kobe?  That's why they traded Shaq away coz they think he is going to get too old and want him out before he doesn't worth shit.  Shaq and Kobe can't get along anyways, and Kobe even said he is not going to re-sign if Shaq stays.


I could give a fuck about what kobe does and your gay oral fantasies.  I never said that he is the best player in the world, i just acknowledge his talent and give credit where credit is due.
Oh and Phil doesnt like this way of playing ball? lmao. Remember phil's dynasty days? You are correct, and anybody that tries to compare Phil's dynasty days with his current shit team called that lakers must be smoking crack. please get some help

about the quote from cnnsi, ofcourse thats not how you want to win a basketball game, thats the most basic fundamental of basketball.  Kobe knows that, Phil knows that, but when you're on a shit team and your 18 pts down in the 1st qtr, phil has no choice but to unleash kobe.  Tell me where phil says that kobe disobeys his orders by taking over the game

kobe currently does have authority within the lakers, like duh, thats because he IS the lakers, nobody there cept kobe.  Do you seriously think that phil would put up with kobe's crap during the championship days, hell no, thats because he wasnt the main show.  there were many times back then when phil pulled kobe out of the game when he wasnt listening.  its not until when shaq started getting lazy that they put more focus on kobe.


Woo Wooo Woo.........  

First let me ask...... Who the FUCK are you???  Was I talking to you?  I was answering Secret Squirrel's claim about PJ didn't try to interfere and Kobe don't have the authority in the Lakers organization.  Did I accuse you for saying Kobe is the best?  NO.  

Those are straight from PJ's mouth, not mine...... let me emphasize again, I am not the one who say that.   It's Phil Jackson himself.  So stfu about that point and move on.  Case closed.  

The current Lakers team can sure archieve more if Kobe let them...... basketball players don't always get hot from the start, for example:  Chauncy Billup tonight shoot 0-6 before he starts hitting shots.  Did other Piston players stopped letting him shoot coz of that?  NO.  Is Chuancy the only players capable of getting points?  NO.

Did you check the other players' game log or stat?  Kobe is still having worse FG% after recent monster games with FG% over 50%.  Did that tell you something?  This point alone prove Kobe is not the only good player in the team.  Odom is having his WORST SEASON of his entire career except the 2 injured seasons.  This just prove how much you know about basketball.

And thanks for supporting my point to prove Secret Squirrel wrong on Kobe has all the authority in the Lakers organization.  kthxbye.

^It was this statement that you posted that got me started on the whole authority argument, not the quote from Phil. Let me clear something up in case I might have given you the wrong idea. Kobe does have a large amount of authority over his team and teammates, he is the co-captain afterall, but not ALL... and that's where I was trying to get at. Ultimately it's Phil's decision whether or not to limit Kobe's game offensively. I just don't think Kobe has ENOUGH authority to disobey Phil's game plan and get away with it. I could go on, but like you said, case closed... let's move on.

its obvious the only people here giving kobe any kind of credit in the last page is ss and me.  so when you start your rant with a "you ppl" of course im gonna think you're talking to me.  tell me, if i posted "you people need to get koby's X out of your mouth" and you thought i was talking to you, how would you react?  watch what u fucken type then

about phil's quote, true thats what he said but in no way did it mean "PJ makes game plan, but it's Kobe to execute the plan or not. And he chose not to most of the time...... ", you have no proof that he is not following phil's orders because you are not on the basketball floor, thats all im trying to say

And i have never stated that this is how a basketball player should play, only saying that sometimes its necessary.  If kobe decided not to take over that "game", being down by 18 pts early on, they would have lost by 40 or something

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO GET A LATE RUN ROXS!!

about kobe's 81 pts perf, it a sick in a way that he was unstoppable. however it also proves how bad of a defensive team Raps was. once kobe decided to go for 60-70-81, raptors basically stood in the paint allowing kobe to move around and lay the ball in. the only players that really defend him were jalen and peterson.

as much as i hate kobe, that was once in a life time to watch.

Finally Artest got traded. I think it'll be a good fit for him at Sacramento. I actually met Artest and got his picture and autograph back when he was playing for St. Johns. It was the end of the basketball season in this league I was playing in and he was the special guest for the season awards ceremony. I can't believe the Knicks drafted Frederick fucking Weis over him!  :x If he was on the Knicks now, I can only imagine what the Knicks would be today.

Comments From Around the League:
http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060124/SPORTS0403/601240475

Celtics Great Larry Bird:
"That's wild. That is really wild. That's a lot of points, I'm telling you. There's no question how good he is, but when you start throwing numbers around like that, it's unbelievable. It would be hard to believe if you didn't know it was true."

Miami Heat Coach Pat Riley:
"Anybody who's got the kind of energy to try to hoist up (nearly) 70 shots is going to score a lot of point. It's remarkable, the execution and the efficiency, but we've got a lot of guys in this league, if they took 70 shots, they'd score a lot of points."

Miami Heat G, Dwyane Wade:
"Everybody was calling. Everybody called every player in the league."

Miami Heat F, Antoine Walker:
"I think with the 81 now, no other team or other players will let that happen. Now guys will foul out trying to stop him from doing that. If someone gets 81 on me, I'm going to clothesline him." On Shaq: "He told us to get him 50 shots."

Tex Winter, Ex-Assistant:
"It was quite an exhibition. It's what the fans love. I don't think you can win a championship playing that way and so, consequently, I would be concerned about that. But it was a great victory and I don't want to take anything away from Kobe because it was one of the greatest I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of exhibitions."

Lakers Great, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:
"Kobe's range is unreal, and he does it his way. It was a real treat. His ability to shoot from long range and also attack the hoop, split the defense and get in close for opportunities near the basket is unique. He's made a niche for himself, and he deserves it."

New Jersey Nets PG, Jason Kidd:
"How many minutes did he play, 42? If he had an overtime game, maybe (100 would be possible)"

New Jersey Nets F, Vince Carter:
"It is great for the league, for him, just because of the buzz it has created. The only bad thing about it is younger kids, whose minds are easily warped, are going to think, 'Ohhh! I am going to go out there and do it' instead of the team concept first. That is what is missing, guys understanding how to play as a team. They [the NBA] want scoring, they want ratings, you are going to get that. You are definitely going to get them now with the amount of 50-60-point games . . . I just hope kids and young guys understand that yeah, special guys can do that. But . . ."

Detroit PG, Chauncey Billups:
"If you have it going, you're supposed to keep it going. ... Unbelievable."

Indiana Pacers Coach, Rick Carlisle:
"I don't feel so bad about the 45 he got on us now."

Golden State Warriors Coach, Mike Montgomery:
"I wish we had King Kong (to guard him). Anything we can do, we'll do."

Bulls Great Scottie Pippen:
"It's superb, definitely. Something that is new to me, that is shocking. I got the news last night about 3 in the morning, and I don't think I even went back to bed."

Ex-Bull and now-Analyst Steve Kerr:
"I'm always one to credit the guys who win. I don't know if I would have given Kobe the M.V.P. last week. But what he did in the game last night, he's so clearly the best player out there."

Hubie Brown, Analyst:
"For Kobe Bryant to do this as a guard, it is a testimony to his athletic ability, incredible endurance."

Detroit Pistons President of Basketball Operations, Joe Dumars:
"I think it is an awesome feat what Kobe did the other night, and I tip my hat to him. The one word that comes to mind when I think about what he accomplished is SPECIAL."

Utah Jazz Coach, Jerry Sloan:
"Kobe brought his team back from a big deficit to win the game, so you like to see that. That means quite a bit more than getting points with no competition."

Cavs Guard, Eric Snow:
"Hats off, he's the best. It's hard to get 50 in a game. He did it in a half. It takes a tough player who works really hard. I think he's one of the best ever."

Celtics Ricky Davis:
"That was a great game. It surprises you, but the guy was hitting shot after shot."

Celtics Forward, Paul Pierce:
"It's impressive,. He's probably playing the best basketball of anyone in the NBA right now. When you’re taking jump shots, you’re going to get more tired. Wilt got all layups. With the athletes that are in the game today, no, it wouldn’t happen. You would have to put more minutes on the clock. Well, maybe Kobe could do it. If he shot every time down the floor.” "

Celtics Coach, Doc Rivers:
“What was lost in all of that was that he got it going when they were down by 18 points. The other amazing part was that he didn’t get tired at the end.”

George Gervin:
"To compare it to anybody would be useless. He set himself apart from everyone else. Everyone looks for another Michael Jordan, and there probably won't be one. What Kobe did was establish himself as one of the greatest scorers of all time at an early age. He's a phenom. I'm a believer, man. Now we've got to sit back and wait and see if anyone scores 82."

76ers Guard, Andre Iguodala:
"How does the other team let him get that many points? Once a guy gets 50 points, you double him every time down the court. They weren't doing a good job of trying to keep the ball out of his hands so I was actually rooting for him.

Chicago Bulls G, Ben Gordon:" That should put all the questions to rest who's the most talented and who's the, you know, best offensive player in the league. You know if he would've had a decent first half, he might've got 100 points last night. I mean if anybody can go out there and score 25 points a quarter I would definetly say it's Kobe."

Chicago Bulls G, Chris Duhon: "I'm just amazed he got up 46 shots. That's like, uh, five games worth for me. After eight shots I'm already having to ice my elbow. You know, 46, that's just amazing on it's own."

Chicago Bulls F/C, Tyson Chandler: "We're witnessing greatness right now. We need to understand that. (asked: "Is he the best of the best?") Yeah, definetly."

Detroit Pistons Coach, Flip Saunders: "I think the most amazing thing about Kobe scoring 81 is about how easy he made it look. It's not like he made a lot of difficult shots. A lot of the shots he took were like open shots."

Phoenix Suns F, Shawn Marion: "Is that for real? You know. That's what people will probably go around saying today. Did he really have 81 points? Is that possible?"

Miami Heat Center Shaquille O'Neal:
Declined to comment..

Elgin Baylor:
"Scoring 81 points is a truly amazing accomplishment. Of course, the most important thing is that his effort contributed to a victory for his team."

Mavs GM, Mark Cuban:
"It's amazing. Beyond amazing. He's on another level from any other player at this point. It's like he is toying with teams. If you push up on him, he just takes two steps back and shoots from further out. I hope the NBA adjusts its TV schedule so we all can see him play more. It would be fun to watch and fun to debate how far a one-man show can drag four other players in a team sport."

Mavs Guard, Darrell Armstrong:
"Imagine if our game had been close. "

Mavs Guard, Jerry Stackhouse:
"How many times did he get to the line? You'd think the Super Bowl would lead 'SportsCenter' tonight. But you know it won't. It can't. Kobe will. He has to."

Mavs Forward, Dirk Nowitzki (on if he could get 81):
"I don't think that would be good from a team standpoint."

Mavs Forward, Keith Van Horn:
"How many assists?. He didn't have any against us."

Mavs Guard, Devin Harris:
"He took 47 shots?"

Ex-Lakers Guard, Ty Lue:
Listen to Lue interview

Atlanta Hawks Captain, Joe Johnson:
"With Kobe, he takes shots that look bad, but they're not bad shots for him. He was on fire. On fire."

Atlanta Hawks Coach, Mike Woodson:
"It was just a special, special night. And I'm sure Kobe felt that way. Because 81 points is, well, 81 points, and I don't care how you cut it up. It's amazing."

Atlanta Hawks Radio Analyst, Dennis Scott:
"The most points I ever scored was 65 in the Urban Coalition summer league in D.C.. I had something like 16 3-pointers, and I'm telling you, I was dead tired when it was over. I saw the highlights of Kobe, and he looked like he could have played another game."

Orlando Magic Guard, Keyon Dooling:
"It's not just a buzz about Kobe, it's a holler. That guy is incredible. That's why he's the best player in the league."

Orlando Magic Assistant GM, Otis Smith:
"Whether you like him or dislike him, Kobe is a special player. He has the killer instinct in him that a lot of the talented players don't have. When he smells blood, he goes for the jugular. That's a (Michael) Jordan-like quality."

Orlando Guard/Forward, Grant Hill:
"I guess they say records are made to be broken. You wouldn't think it could be done, but if anybody could I guess it would be Kobe. It's just incredible. There's not much really you can say. Wow."

Orlando Coach, Brian Hill:
"Forget about 81 points. To be able to get up that many shots and still play defense at the other end of the floor, that's a pretty incredible physical accomplishment."

Hornets Guard Kirk Snyder:
"I heard about it after I had finished hanging out with David West, and he called me and said that Kobe had scored 81. My first thought was is that I'm in the NBA with probably one of the best players ever to play in the NBA."

Hornets Coach Byron Scott:
"I think Wilt's record is pretty safe unless a player like Kobe goes into four or five overtimes. I think this is the closest you'll see anybody get to it."

Hornets Guard J.R. Smith:
"The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about what Kobe did was the amount of shots he go. If anybody's going to score, it's Kobe. He can take as many shots as he wants, and nobody says nothing. Of course when you take 46 shots you are going to score, but he's good enough to make more than half of them. He's good enough to take good shots, and he just had one of those nights."

Jerry West:
"I don't know if anyone could have stopped him last night. It's so senseless to me to say he shouldn't take over like that. You give the same amount of shots to everybody else and they're not making that many, I know it. Players are jealous of greatness. Kobe is a unique talent and a unique person. His belief that he can jump to the moon is never going to change. But I admire him, what he's been able to overcome. You would think he would be a fair-haired man of the NBA with what's he's already done. But he's taken a fairly good battering."

Richie Guerin, played in 100 pt game:
"I thought the game in the second half was set up to try to have Wilt score as many points as he could. And I told Wilt this personally. Kobe's, I think is a little more special because of his size and he played in a game that was significant and meaningful. Taking nothing away from Wilt. . . . If you play a game a normal way, I think it's just about impossible to score that many points.''

Miami Heat Coach, Pat Riley:
"He might get 100. If you can get 81 . . . absolutely. He has the mentality to do that and conditioning. He's one of the best conditioned athletes in the world.''

Miami Heat Guard, Dwyane Wade:
"Not at all." - If he thought 80 points was possible

"Give him overtime and he might have got there. Now, it's possible." - On the all-time record

"Maybe if I go home and play my video game I'll hit 80." - If he can make a run at Kobe

New Jersey Nets F, Richard Jefferson:
"He's the first person to ever get to 80 (since Chamberlain's 100). Is 100 doable? You'd probably have a better chance of winning the lottery but there's always a chance.''

"I talked to Mike ( James) after the game," McGrady said. "He said they didn't double team him — not one time. You would think after he hit 40, send two or three guys at him. When he hit 50? When he got 70? What are you doing: playing him one-on-one?"

More on No. 8
Bucks players were also talking about Kobe Bryant.

"I just couldn't believe the Toronto team let him get 81," said Bobby Simmons, usually assigned to defend Bryant. "He would not get 81 on me, no way. And I wouldn't let my teammates get away with that. For one guy to score that many points, I think the coach should have made a change. You have to get the ball out of his hands."

Allen Iverson:
Quote:
"It was an amazing night for Kobe. Just unreal. Like watching a video game. He's the best player in the game.". Asked if he will try to top the performance #3 wasnt so humble "We play Toronto in March. I'm going to go for 100."


TMac:
Quote:
"I don't think I could score that many in a video game."


Wally Sczerbiak:
Quote:
"He's just one of those guys I have a lot of respect for. He's strong-willed and he believes in himself to the core."


Ric Bucher:
Quote:
I've never thought of him as selfish, so it's hard for me to know how what I considered a flawed view might change. I saw someone who was emotionally conflicted and immature at times. Someone who was supremely confident in himself but not always in his teammates. That's not selfish, by my definition or Webster's. A selfish player is someone who pursues his own glory at the expense of everything else, including winning. I've never known Kobe to do that. Ever.

Nuggets Forward, Carmelo Anthony:
"I don't think (Bryant) saw himself doing it. That's crazy."

Mavs Forward, Dirk Nowitzki (on if he could get 81):
"I don't think that would be good from a team standpoint."

Mavs Forward, Keith Van Horn:
"How many assists?. He didn't have any against us."

Mavs Guard, Devin Harris:
"He took 47 shots?"

==

Bryant was asked to donate the shoes he wore in Sunday's game to the basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

"That's really, really cool, something I never would have thought of," Bryant said. "It's fun to be a part of that."

Last time T-Mac said "Been there, done that" when Kobe dropped 62.

Both had career highs of 62...

Quote
"If I had to pick the best player in the game, he certainly is up there right now in the way that he approaches the game. . . . Anybody can go out and take a lot of shots and end up with 81 points, but if you lose, who cares? He was in a great rhythm and went out and played well. So you have to commend him for that. [But] if I were on the other side, there would be no way I would have been able to be in that game without six fouls."

So many turnovers in the 1st quarter in the Mavs vs. Nuggets game. If we had the 2nd string PG Delvin Harris healthy I think we would've won. He brings alot of energy off the bench and he doesn't turn the ball over as much as Armstrong.

Nets guard decides to pass on '08 Games in Beijing

New Jersey Nets point guard Jason Kidd wasn't selected on the NBA All-Star roster, and says he will not participate in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

I'm not going to participate. I'm going to skip it," Kidd told the New York Post in Saturday's editions. "I didn't want to do it. Did it before. I've helped the team qualify twice. So I think I'll pass on the third time.

"And it's long: August and September. I wouldn't have that much of a break before the season to get ready, so I thought I would let the younger guys go and do it."

All-Star weekend will held Feb. 17-19 in Houston.


 :( I think the two best point guards today are J Kidd and Nash. It sucks that hes not going. I guess it'll be Marbury.

IG's AI backboard dunk is the best for the night though.  I totally agree they should let go the multiple tries for letting the players complete a dunk successfully.  It's the creative dunk we are all for.  If anyone do easy dunk which can be done in one try the whole contest would be over in 15 mins anyways.

to me, nate deserved it all the way even though he had too many tries on two of his dunks. but it still looked good once he did it. the fact he won because of his ability to elevate himself, especially the dunk over webb.

meanwhile, i thought AI's dunks were kinda repetitive at the end. 3 between legs. i always think guys his height dont tend to have nice form of dunks. this is why when a guy like nate dunks, it looks so much better than a 6-9 guy.

of course the judging was kinda biased towards the end.

on the other hand, i really wish the nba should ban YAO from playing in the all-star game. as much as i like him, he doesnt do shit out there. all he really did was run around the court. he wasnt willing to ask for ball. its sad that he's a starter for west.

of course they will.... i mean there like wat.... billions of chinese fans voting for Yao even though he is not quite an all-star yet (from the west i think Brad Miller/Pau Gasol (with amare out) might be the best at playing Center on their team... even though Miller/Gasol isn't really a center? same with amare) and prob marcus camby too before he got hurt

it is just kinda like the vince carter fans voting for vince carter regardless he sucks? well Yao is definitely better than vince carter

............... that doesn't mean anything since asianz are invading US day by day..... FOB all over the place which means, chinese fans from the US are still voting for Yao since he is from China... duh

anyways, All-star game is pretty much for publicity... getting in All-star game doesn't really mean anything... except how much you are loved by the people not becz how good you are
--------------------

on the other note....

New York Knicks is officially worse than the Yankees in wasting $$ on big names....

now they have too many freaking guard that likes to shoot.... especially this trio...

[stephon (half-PG), crawford (SG), francis (SG)]

although starting jalen and having richardson on SF might not be too bad
[jalen (GF), richardson (GF)]

i cant really see stephon + francis playing on the court... i mean they are pretty much exactly the same kind of player... unless they can get rid of stephon somehow before the deadline

its a good move on Orlando's part... building on the young players, Howard + Nelson and hopefully Darko stepping up and getting some minutes

:thumbsup WERD. And don't believe everything you read in the media. They say it's like that but almost all Asians here in North America are Rockets fans. and hey Vince Carter didn't crack the starting All Star lineup since exiting the Raptors. Most fans going to NBA games are just casual fans, corporate people. And are influenced by commercials. Which is testament to Kobe. :halo:

...anyways.

The NBA Trade deadline was ho hum. Bunch of role players changed spots:

Earl Watson returned to the Seattle SuperSonics and forward Ruben Patterson was dealt from Portland to Denver on Thursday as part of a four-team, nine-player trade.

Seattle sent forward Reggie Evans to Denver and center Vitaly Potapenko to Portland and received Watson, forward Byron Russell and a second-round pick from the Nuggets. Portland sent Patterson and Charles Smith to the Nuggets and acquired Voshon Lenard from Denver and forward Brian Skinner from Sacramento.

Portland then sent Potapenko to the Kings along with Sergei Monia.  (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=AlY1J62ayvc.0JWHjFfFl0q8vLYF?slug=ap-four-teamtrade&prov=ap&type=lgns)

1. China has only 1.3 billions ppl, and you already said billions of chinese.... oh, you must forget 1 of those ppl.  Maybe it's me!!!!  I didn't vote for AS game this year!!!!

2. Fob is not the term you are qualified to use for describing Chinese with your tone and meaning.  

3. Elaborate "A lot of Chinese", do you have proof to show us that those "a lot of Chinese" who voted in N.A. contributed to the fact that he has like bajillion times more vote than the 2nd place in Center position?  

4. And now you even put out Asian the term....obviously you notice that Chinese alone doesn't have the population to pull this off.... so now you try to bring in Asian, the largest continent with the most population in the world.  What makes you think Asians must be a Yao Ming fan?  
Your logics is flawed and you can't even explain or have proof to back it up.  


==============================================
I just noticed that you uses the term Asianz Invasion, care to explain?  Can we know what kind of race are you?  Why you are interested in asian musics or girls?  From what I know it's the whites who invaded North America, not asian.  Even if you are native Indian, pls get the fact straight.  All the immigrants earned their right to live in N.A. fair and square and legally.  I feel sorry to your race because you obviously are an ignorant who neither can get your fact straight nor speak logically.

You are even more pathetic than I anticipated.   It's someone like you who put the rest of Asians in the N.A. to shame.  Even the fact your friends voted Yao doesn't mean tthat they voted Yao because he is Chinese.  Also just your friends and you included voted Yao doesn't mean the other asians voted for Yao.  You still haven't had any thing solid to back up your point.

Yao Ming will be starting for the West for the next few years unless there is a much better centre than him in the west. i would agree that most of yao ming's votes would come from chinese. but if u really look at the nba nowadays, which big men is there to vote into the all-star game? u can make a case for camby. but i think most ppl would see Yao in the game more than camby. NBA nowadays are lacking good quality centres.

thats if he wouldnt shoot that much. mike james is a good player. but he hogs too much. last year he basically jacked up all the shots down the stretch during the playoffs. Yao nor T-mac didnt have any opportunities.
even now, he is doing the same thing.

rockets last year was a way better team because everyone was healthy. if this year, everyone was in good shape, anderson, barry, altson, tmac and yao were playing 90% of the games till now, we wont be concern about missing the playoffs.

Mike James on the other hand tries to be the hero when game is on the line. Houston still win out on this trade.

I'm satisfied though. Lakers will wrap up a 7 or 8 seed...but must give props to Byron Scott for molding Chris Paul (easily Rookie of the Year) into the fine guard and Hornets exceeding expectations. Fucking Katrina wiped em out, and they traded Maglore. If it weren't for some candidates like Flip Saunders, Doogie Howser, I'd say Byron Scott should get some votes for Coach of The Year too.

Kobe, HA, the only reason why he is even listed as a MVP candidate by some becz of that 82 pt game he had before, the situation would completely flip around if the Lakers lost to the Raptors on that very day, funny how things work in the real world.. i don't consider someone with such a big ego and self-cented player deserves to be MVP of NBA, even himself said "I'd vote for myself," the Lakers star said with a smile.

The Suns would be my pick to come out of the West.  As for the East....hmmm, maybe the Heat??  Even though I don't like the fact that all those guys (Payton + Walker) just signed on cause of Shaq.

The Nets are my least favourite team in this year's playoffs.  Simply because of the fact that Vince Carter is on the team.  Pansy ass...

KOBE MVP!! Oh, THE DOMINATION. He finally gets hi scoring title. (http://www.nba.com/features/scoring_race_0506.html)

" Bryant averaged 43.4 ppg in January, the eighth best scoring average for a month in NBA history (Chamberlain owns the top seven marks). Elgin Baylor is the only other player to average 40-plus ppg in a month; Bryant is the only player other than Chamberlain to have multiple 40-plus ppg months (Bryant averaged 40.6 ppg in February 2003)."

MJ never averaged 40 for a month!

Suns can't contain Kobe forever. 8)

I'm proud the Lakers came back from like 15 - 18 down. to draw so close. Luke Walton, Brian Cook, Smush Parker. All contributed. Lakers will even it up and  then take a 3-1 lead in Staples. If they actually contained Tim Thomas and his fuckin 3's in the 1st. Lakers woulda won it.

The same can be said about Udonis Haslem and his foul complaints. Hope he doesn't get suspended. Joey Crawford is a lil bitch but yaw. can't throw shit at a ref haha.

and how about EDDIE! EDDIE! EDDIE!!

Congrats to AJ!! He put the "D" back in Dallas ROFL. Still, Phil Jackson shoulda got more votes for taking a Laker team everyone counted out! and more...NBA Award Rumors:

http://www.insidehoops.com/nba_rumors.shtml

Quote
"Avery Johnson will be honored with one of the NBA's two biggest individual awards today when he is named the league's coach of the year, numerous sources said Monday." Dallas Morning News

"However, the league's other major piece of hardware – the MVP trophy – will elude Dirk Nowitzki, a source said. While it was unknown who will win the MVP, it will not be Nowitzki, who was lumped with Phoenix's Steve Nash, Cleveland's LeBron James, Detroit's Chauncey Billups and the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant as legitimate candidates." Dallas Morning News


"In addition to Nowitzki, Jerry Stackhouse was a prime contender for the league's sixth-man award, but he, too, came up short." Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Mavericks have called a press conference for today at 1:45 p.m., presumably to announce that Avery Johnson has won the NBA's Coach of the Year award." InsideHoops.com


....You DON'T wanna piss off Kobe. Be prepared to get shitted on Tim Thomas.

Quote
Tim Thomas admits he got away with whacking Kobe Bryant in the head at a critical point in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers.
...
He also acknowledged responsibility for the knot on Bryant's head.

"I definitely fouled him," Thomas said Monday. "I got away with one, but I didn't do it intentionally. It wasn't like I threw a jab at him."

how about tonight's game, although i only watched the last 8 minutes of the game, the refs didnt everything possible to even things out for the lakers. two non-calls in the end was incredible.

one thing why SUNS wont be going far into the playoffs is their lack of defence. they were fucking cold tonight except for nash and bell maybe. when their only reliable threat is gone, they are totally exposed.

I still can't believe the MVP votes. Nash won by a landslide. Lebron was liek second with 11 1st place votes. I don't think Kobe got a sniff. The way everyone is on LBJ's cock is like whoa. He decided to pass instead of shoot. WHATTA TEAMMATE! :puke: Hey, one more rebound and he could got a triple double to add to the 26 points and 10 TURNOVERS. The Media Hatred is pathetic.

Dunno why y'all can't just enjoy a nasty ass dunk. It's a block according to the rulebook. Nash is a known flopper. And it WASN'T a charge. According to NBA Rules: http://www.nba.com/analysis/rules_c.html?nav=ArticleList

Quote
..A defensive player is not permitted to move into the path of an offensive player once he has started his shooting motion.

A defensive player must allow a moving player the distance to stop or change direction when the offensive player receives a pass outside the lower defensive box.

A defensive player must allow an alighted player the distance to land and then stop or change direction when the offensive player is outside the lower defensive box.

A defensive player is permitted to establish a legal guarding position in the path of an offensive player who receives a pass inside the lower defensive box regardless of his speed and distance...


So, by rule you are NOT allowed to UNDERCUT a person in flight.

Post by: Kobasew on May 01, 2006, 07:12:25 AM
If they had called the foul when Nash "turned the ball over" then Kobe wouldn't even have had an opportunity for that layup at the end of regulation.  I'm just saying the NBA refs aren't really legit in terms of what they should be doing.  Example: We all know about how Iverson is a warrior and what not and how he gets to the line by being aggressive; well a lot of the times he just gets the benefit of the doubt on contact.  If he drove in against a rookie or someone with less of a reputation, it's quite likely that he'll (AI) get the call.  My point is they should just call the damn game and forget about reputations and respect.

And anyone who thinks this "reputation" thing is just a theory has obviously not watched much NBA basketball.  I'm not saying it happens all the time but it's plays like those that may ultimately determine the fate of a team's playoff run.

The whole Pistons title was pretty bad. "Team Basketball" is preached so much in the NBA it makes me puke. Superstars are complimented by role players. Not a bunch of swingmen working together. "Lebron passes first" "Kobe is selfish" Fuck. That. Shit. Stern controls a lot of aspects with the refs. Star players get the benefit of the doubt. Jordan Rules.

Kaman: Evans pulled testicles, prompting outburst

LOS ANGELES -- Chris Kaman received a flagrant foul. Reggie Evans may have instigated it.

The alleged circumstances, however, make it one of the more odd altercations during the NBA playoffs.

What exactly happened is what the NBA is trying to determine after Kaman's claim that Evans grabbed his testicles and "pulled hard" during Saturday's NBA playoff game in Denver, according to a report in Monday's Los Angeles Times. Kaman responded by shoving Evans and was assessed the flagrant foul.

Kaman reported his version of what happened to the officials and repeated it during an interview Sunday with NBA security, according to the Times. TV replays showed Evans putting his hand under Kaman's shorts during a battle under the boards.

"I told [the NBA] in complete detail what happened," Kaman said, according to the Times. "The three refs also knew what happened."

Kaman said he showed restraint in not punching Evans.

"With what we're trying to do, I didn't want to get thrown out," he said, according to the Times. "I thought about it, but I knew what would happen. "One of the refs said he would have knocked [him] out. It was crazy."

"When I saw it on TV, it was like, 'Wow,' " Clippers guard Sam Cassell said. "I asked the referees about it at halftime, and Jess Kersey, who has been in the league for [29] years, said he's never seen anything like it.

You know what, Reggie is a good guy. I think he just lost it for a minute."

One surprise of the playoffs, how Sacto is recharged with Ron Artest in the lineup. They came pretty close to taking a 3-2 lead :o

and Dwayne Wade, still gets no props amongst the Kobe, Nash, LBJ, Dirk, Pisstons. Dude landed on his ribs yet comes back into the game all injected up. :bow:

(http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/5853/r40317373264cx.jpg)

Last nite's game was purely filled with Phoenix playing dirty. Flopping. Just cuz you're branded as a finesse run and gun team, don't mean you go and flop. Playing physical is part of playoff basketball. Kobe got a knot on his head and no call. So does flopping and pulling wrestling moves justify the means?

Plain and simple. Don't Fuck With Kobe. Raja Bell does NOT wanna wake him up. He's not gonna ignite for 40 or 50. Everyone's gonna play disciplined basketball on the floor of Staples.

Kwame Kwame Kwame. Accused of stomping a woman before tip off. Or the girlfriend/sister of Boris Diaw. I'm sure it's another bitch looking for money like with Kobe, but man, that couldn't be good. He was totally off his game too, picking up all those early fouls and opened up the fuckin lane for Nash and that damn Frenchie Diaw.

I loved the post game comments. "It doesn't disturb me. It excites me." Kobe just wants to murder you. BRING ON THE OCTAGON!  Fuckin suspension. Suns going to the Vlade Divac School of FLOP! DON'T PISS OFF KOBE!!!! Phil Jackson: "We want him on the floor."

But really. Too much inconsistent calls, flops are getting called waaaaaay too much. See Tyson Chandler getting Shaq in foul trouble. See Steve Nash and the entire Suns crew. It just disrupts the flow of the game. You watch the old games of the 80s, you'd see guys knocking over each other but none of the whining.

Nash, I never considered him a pride of Canada. Yeah, he pimps cheap ass Canadian computers. But he didn't want to play for the Olympic team. If he's so patriotic he woulda played for less money for the Raptors. And now with his bitch ass comments about Kobe. Big thumbs down.

The only consistent way to defend The World's Greatest Player Kobe Bryant is to hit him and trip him. Ask Bruce Bowen. Raja Bell got his just due. He's a punk bitch and lacks the class. Good - give him one game. Cuz that's all the games the Suns have left in their season anyways.

Said Raja: "I have no respect for him, I think he's a pompous, arrogant individual." Earlier on Dan Patrick. He said he was "in the heat of the moment" ...  but asked if he had remorse. He said he'd do it again. Punk bitch!

Said Kobe: "Who is this kid? Does he know me? I don't think he was hugged enough as a kid."

I'm gonna enjoy Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler, and The Wiz beating The Chosen One and his double digit turnovers tonite.

I feel for Raja though, he did get elbowed in the face a couple times before he knocked Kobe down. That would've pissed alot of ppl off too.

Sacramento needs to win game 6!!!! Make them Spurs tired before they play the MAvs.

Evans got lucky!!! You can't grab a guy like that and not get suspended -_-.

Remember Kwame elbowing Diaw?  I feel his punishment wasn't severe enough.  If you watch the replays, it was a pretty nasty elbow.

Inconsistencies with suspensions...if Evans doesn't get suspended, something is definitely wrong at the NBA offices.  I assume they're still reviewing the play.  Maybe they are unsure how to report this to the media..."Evans has been suspended 1 game for homosexual misconduct???"

i know <_<, Deron Williams doesn't deserve to be on first team since he had mediocre performance all year round, Felton averged more than Williams, avg assists more than Williams, had 13 double-double, while Williams only have five and Williams, Felton also had more impact on the Bobcats than Williams had on Jazz.... so i don't see how Williams is better than Felton in any shape or form... also Felton kicked Williams' ass in UCAA Championship

the only way I can think of Williams over Felton is "Williams was picked before Felton in the draft...." which was a mistake <_<

LOVE Kobe's quote. (He's becoming a regular Phil Jackson Prodigy/Shaq Junior)

when told that Lamar Odom was really down on himself for not securing the rebound Tim Thomas eventually converted into a trey (which led to OT and the loss), Kobe was asked how he keeps guys from dwelling on mistakes.

"You just put it behind you. There's nothing you can do about it. You know what I mean? After you go to the bathroom, you don't stand there and look at what you just dropped in there. At some point, you gotta flush it, man."

LMAO! :lmao:

well u cant blame ppl saying that kobe only took 3 shots. when ur whole team is sucking dick out there, him as a leader should try and take over. but instead, he chose to continue to play passive bball. kobe can definitely kill the Suns' defence even if reja was gaurding him.

however i never understand why ppl rape kobe for game 6. he was invisible that game. i mean he took many shots, but he made almost 50% of them. His team just doesnt have enough experience.

CLEVELAND -- The T-shirt that proclaims a Cleveland Cavaliers fan as a witness to LeBron James' accomplishments is becoming a big hit.

The team marked the start of the playoffs by giving fans who attended a black T-shirt reading simply "Witness" with a Nike swoosh logo to honor James.

Now the team shop has been bombarded with requests for the item, which is fetching more than $100 on eBay. The team shop got an order of the T-shirts and is selling them for $20.50.

The Cavs host Detroit in game three of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Saturday. Detroit leads the best-of-seven series two games to none.

Watching Duncan is beautiful, not boring
By Pat Forde
ESPN.com

Things that bore me: Reality television, "wacky" morning radio shows, the very sight of Charlie Sheen.

You'll notice that Tim Duncan does not make the list.

   Tim Duncan
Tim Duncan's game is substance over style, but he can soar when he needs to.

In fact, I could list a million things that bore me -- ironing, Stone Phillips, Austria -- without mentioning Duncan.

I could list a million boring sports things -- cricket, free agency, throws to first to hold the runner -- and No. 21 for the San Antonio Spurs still would be nowhere near making an appearance.

I don't just respect Tim Duncan -- everyone does that. I'm entertained watching him play basketball.

I love the bank shots, the drop steps, the efficient post moves, the intelligent passes out of double-teams, the two-hand rebounds, the refusal to force anything. I've enjoyed watching him hang 31 points and 11 rebounds a game on the Dallas Mavericks in a ding-dong series so far, and I can't wait to see him play Monday night against the Mavs in what verges on a must-win playoff game.

This apparently makes me un-American enough that the NSA soon will be listening to my phone calls.

Enjoying Duncan runs counter to a state university-sized school of thought that says the most accomplished player in the NBA is test-pattern dull. Skip and Woody actually agreed on something last week on "Cold Pizza" -- that the Spurs (i.e., Duncan) are boring. And Madison Avenue clearly sees it that way, given its shunning of Duncan as a national pitchman.

Dwyane Wade will put you in a swell pair of shoes. Shaq will tell you how to care for your aching muscles. Even onetime pariah pitchman Kobe Bryant has made a commercial comeback, trading on his anti-hero status.

Just recently I've seen Kevin Garnett portray a platoon leader, a superhero and a standup comic. Funny, though, I've never seen him portray a pro basketball player in June.

Vince Carter is selling a wireless service during the playoffs. That's nice. When the Heat are finished with Carter and the Nets, he should have enough free minutes to call Duncan and ask him what winning a championship or three feels like.

I hear we're all witnesses to LeBron James' ascendance. While I won't dispute that, I'm wondering how commercial America failed to witness the Duncan phenomenon that preceded it.

The two-time league MVP and three-time NBA Finals MVP, the first player ever to be named first-team All-NBA in each of his first eight seasons as a pro, the guy who pushed himself through 80 regular-season games with plantar fasciitis, the perfect teammate, the caring community presence, the ideal face of a franchise? Guess he's too stoic and too solid to sell.

I look around the league and simply don't get it. I see repetitive stories about the anti-Duncans and yawn.

Thin man Allen Iverson and tin man Chris Webber blowing off Fan Appreciation Night in Philly? Shocker.

Overexposed and underprepared point guard Sebastian Telfair playing just 24 minutes a game for a 60-loss team? Hardly the stuff of books and documentaries, is it?

Larry Brown and Stephon Marbury hissing at each other through the tabloids during a train-wreck season? Utter boredom.

Amid this fool's parade, isn't there some love to be found for the Big Fundamental?

Yes. Turns out you can find it from predictable and unpredictable sources.

"I think he's very refreshing," said South Carolina's Dave Odom, who had Duncan for four years at Wake Forest. "What's different is refreshing, and he's different. It's gone 180 degrees now.

"He's fundamentally sound, a fearless, determined champion, someone who didn't feel like he already knew everything, who puts the team first -- those were throwback virtues and attributes. Those were things that made the old Celtic teams great, but today that's not true. Today's game is style over substance. He's the opposite. He's substance over style.

"Today's game is style over substance. He's the opposite. He's substance over style. I think he's appreciated. I don't think he's adored."
Dave Odom, Duncan's college coach

"I think he's appreciated. I don't think he's adored."

Unpredictable? How about Ron Artest, the NBA's Jesse James to Duncan's Wyatt Earp. The combustible Sacramento King told Dime Magazine this season that he likes the way Duncan plays.

Artest explained: "I remember one time Kevin Garnett was mushing him, and shoving him in the face; and Tim Duncan didn't do anything, he didn't react. He just kicked Kevin Garnett's a--, and won the damn championship. You know what I'm sayin'? That's gangsta. Everybody can show emotion, dunk on somebody, scream and be real cocky; but Tim Duncan is a ... he's a pimp."

Only the creative cloudy thinking of Ron Artest could put "Tim Duncan" and "pimp" in the same sentence -- but that's part of the big guy's marketability deficit. In terms of swagger, he's more plumber than pimp. He's as edgy as a sphere.


The closest he's come to being controversial is complaining about David Stern's new dress code (Duncan isn't comfortable without his shirttail hanging out, and he's not a suit-and-tie guy). He doesn't need big-city bling, being perfectly comfortable in the relative obscurity of San Antonio. And he's a lousy self-promoter.

"He doesn't let us into his life," said San Antonio Express-News columnist Buck Harvey. "Probably my first interview with him was as good as my last one. But in this business you can kind of respect that. He isn't trying to get in good with the media.

"My impression, if you were to know him as a teammate and a friend, he wouldn't be boring at all. He's very smart and has a great sense of humor. He just doesn't want to put that out there."

The Duncan we don't see is the guy who came over to Odom's house for dinner last October, the night before an exhibition game in Columbia, S.C. -- and fretted because he didn't have anything nicer to wear than his sweat suit. The Duncan we don't see sat in Odom's living room talking to the coach and his wife for hours after dinner, then dropped by South Carolina's practice the next day to work with the post men on a few drills.

Odom reports that the Gamecock players were not bored by Duncan's presence.

Turns out they're not alone. There might be a peasant revolution underway when it comes to Duncan and his Q Rating.

The latest issue of ESPN Magazine ran the results of a SportsNation poll identifying athletes with the most "cred." It's about as easily defined as porn -- we know it when we see it, to borrow from a former Supreme Court justice -- but it would seem to rank among the highest compliments you can pay a player.

My jaded assumption was that Duncan would rate depressingly low on the "cred" scale. Instead, he leads the league and ranks behind only Tiger Woods and Tom Brady among "SportsNation's most cred-carrying athletes."

I nearly wept. Boring, at last, is beautiful.

CLUTCH CASSEL!!! Sorry for spamming.
Man, Nash and his 2 turnovers in OT really messed them up...he's gotta stop running around the court like a frightened rat.  It puts him in tough positions where he's gotta make a desperation pass.


EDIT: Apparently Raja Bell is even more clutch.
EDIT#2: 2nd OT...my emotions are going up and down...

3 series in the 2nd round are going to game 7. The playoffs this year are a lot more exciting than in the previous ones where the top tier team would sweep their counterparts.

The ref was on Cavs' side most of the game, the offence goaltending by Larry Hugh, couple blocking call etc.

about the ref-ing, i think its awful overall, they missed a lot of calls on both side and made some bad calls such as Rasheed pulled on Anderson's Jersey and fell over while trying to box out Anderson, or fouling Marshall shooting a 3

or larry hughes jumping over tayshaun prince when he already got rebound...

It's actually going to be 2 good days of basketball...today and tomorrow since it's the Draft Lottery.  I'm just hoping the Raps stay at the 5th pick although there's a greater chance of dropping at least one spot.  Maybe we'll get lucky and win a top 3 pick.

Spurs have big chance to take this series. home court advantage really affacts this game. spurs being champion know what it take to win. it will be another close game. but i think spurs will take it.

Suns on the other hand need to shoot as well as they normally do or else they'll get their ass handled by brand and cassel. if kurt thomas is playing tonight, thats a good thing since no one can handle brand down low. but how healthy is kurt? all in all, clippers might edge out suns tonight because they've got defence that suns dont have.

No way man, you just listed all the things the Raps are guaranteed not to do.
The only possible scenario would be trading Villanueva but there's a low chance of that happening since he's got pretty good chemistry with Bosh.  As of right now, the Raps look like they'll be drafting Aldridge.  But before the lottery, there were reports that we made a promise to draft Bargnani.

That leads me to believe the Raps might be trading the pick down to grab Gay or Bargnani at pick 2 or 3.  I personally would love Aldridge but it really screws any supposed promises made to Bargnani which would definitely sour any future relations.

In a perfect world, the Raps would have got the 1st pick in next year's draft....to grab the beast...Oden.

Detroit's weaknesses are finally exposed and the refs their FINALLY didn't buy their "aggressive defense" reputation. It brought me great joy to see Rip whining about a call or Ben Wallace flopping on any given chance. Or 'Sheed playing lazy defense. GREAT!! FUCK YOU PISSSTONS!! 2004 was a FLUKE!

This sure has been one of the more entertaining playoff I remember, the series with Dallas and San Antoine was fantastic not to mention everyone the Suns played..

Hopefully the Finals would live up to the hype, after what the first three rounds have been, it would be a major disaster if this turn into a one sided series...

He was spectacular in the SA series but his production fell during the PHX series. Is he injured or something? If the bench won't be able to contribute next game, this series will go to game 7, with the Mavs getting the title.

No reactions on the draft?
I'd say Portland came away relative winners.  They managed to pick up 2 guys who could have well gone 1 & 2 in Aldridge and Roy.  Although i question why they felt they had to pull off so many trades...some of which seemed pointless.

As for the surprise of the night, in my opinion, is Rudy Gay falling to 8th and then getting traded to Memphis for Shane Battier.  Memphis sure raped Houston in that deal.  Not only that but the Grizz get a decent big man in Stromile.

About my favourite team, the Raps, we came out pretty decent with Bargnani and PJ Tucker.  Many fans are calling Tucker the steal of the 2nd round since he brings toughness and rebounding with the only main concern being his size (not tall enough to be a forward).  Oh well, I hope Bargnani can develop into the next Dirk although I'm sure that's at least 1-2 years away...the good news is he's got the international experience and is not as raw as some other European players who came into the league (i.e. Tskitishvili).

Villanueva traded for Ford + cash
http://www.nba.com/raptors/news/pressrelease_070106.html

I am ready to kick someone's ass for this.  What the hell is BC thinking?!?  Ok yeah, Ford fills a need and it's probably he will have a larger impact (possibly stats-wise as well) than Charlie but you don't trade a guy with so much more potential (i.e. CV) just cause we're thin at the PG spot.  Ask any NBA fan and he/she will tell you that the Raps got the short end of the stick in this trade.

In the long term, the trade may turn out pretty even but as of right now, the amount of talent swapped is unequal.  Damn, I'm so pissed.

edit: and also, Colangelo has been acquiring a little bit of extra cash in the deals he's been pulling off.  It seems to me he's going to look to the free agent market for a significant signing OR maybe the cash is going to be used to sign Ford longterm.  AHHHHHHHHHH, I hate this trade.

edit2: oh, and I'm thinking a trade is in the works too.  Perhaps something between Toronto and Seattle...getting Ray Allen now makes a bit of sense if BC is going for a "win now" approach.

Yeah man, Tim Thomas is such a loser.  The guy is probably going to tank it until he's near or in a contract year.  That's why I wasn't surprised he stepped up his play after getting waived by the Knicks.  Everybody thinks he wasn't getting the playing time or was just stuck in a crappy system but the reality is he put it in cruise control after that huge contract.  That's just my opinion on him.

There's too many players who tank it right after signing big deals.  I.e. Jamal Crawford

I also think Mike James will probably take a step back (although probably not as dramatic as others) in terms of production after he gets "the money he deserves" in the offseason.  I hope the Raps can somehow S&T him somewhere and at least get something in return for him.  There's a bit of talk that we'll be involved in a trade with the Rockets...but I've gotta say no to Stro unless he's packaged with Gay (the player, not the emotion).

"Somebody had to pay for Dallas' collapse in the NBA Finals. The Mavericks started with someone they owed a lot of money. NBA front-office sources told ESPN's Marc Stein Wednesday night that the Mavs have agreed to trade forward Marquis Daniels to the Indiana Pacers for veteran forward Austin Croshere. The Dallas Morning News also reported that the deal was confirmed by Mavericks officials."

-_- I'm still not used to this trading stuff when it involves Dallas. Daniels was pretty productive a year ago, but with the addition of Stackhouse and Vanhorn he has slipped down. Man...I know some things about Daniels...I wonder if he wants to leave Dallas for Indiana.

This sucks because I don't think we're getting the fair end of the deal. To be honest, I thougt Croshere was retired or something. lol

I think the Raps are only making the moves that are available to them.  I mean...it's probable that Toronto is still not an attractive destination for NBA players.  This is why Colangelo has to look over to Europe for guys wanting to make it into the league.

Either way, I think the Raps will be competitive this year.  TJ Ford will be interesting to watch and to see how well he clicks with Bosh.  I still think we got ripped off in the Villanueva-Ford trade but in terms of impact, Ford will probably help us out more.  It was just an issue with talent...

Kobe ready for another run as season nears
By JOHN NADEL, AP Sports Writer
September 21, 2006

(http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/5017/bryantbasketballny151xi5.jpg)
Bryant is in Hong Kong as part of his Asian tour.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kobe Bryant took care of a number of things this summer: He traveled around Asia -- where some of his basketball comments got lost in translation -- underwent knee surgery and hit the weights.

One thing he didn't do was play for the United States at the world championships. He wanted to be on the team, but his right knee didn't cooperate. He had arthroscopic surgery instead, a decision he's altogether happy with as he gets ready for his 11th season.

"The knee's getting healthier and stronger day by day," the Los Angeles Lakers' star told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "I haven't been able to run yet; I should be cleared to run in a while. I've been doing a lot of weight training, things of that nature."

Bryant hopes to hit the court running before the end of the month -- just in time for the start of training camp Oct. 3.

"We just have to play it by ear," he said. "The most important thing is to get all the strength in my leg back. You don't want to rush it."

Bryant expects to be 100 percent healthy by the time the Lakers open the season Oct. 31 against the Phoenix Suns.

"I hope so," he said with a laugh.

It was common knowledge that Bryant's knee bothered him last season, but apparently more than he let on.

"It took me 45 minutes to warm up for practice and games. It was crazy," he recalled. "It was very sore, you just played around it. I couldn't attack, put pressure on the defense the way I wanted to."

Maybe not, but he still managed to win his first scoring championship, averaging 35.4 points -- the highest since Michael Jordan's 37.1 in the 1986-87 season and the eighth highest in NBA history.

Bryant led the Lakers to a 45-37 record and the playoffs after they went 34-48 a year earlier, when they failed to qualify for the first time in 11 years. Los Angeles extended Phoenix to seven games in the first round before losing.

Bryant, who turned 28 last month, figured rest was all his knee needed. But that didn't do it.

"I got back into my training, a couple days into it, it got sore," he said. "Then, it started getting worse."

He had surgery July 13, thinking he would make a full recovery in eight to 12 weeks. He seems right on schedule.

Bryant hopes the signing of Vladimir Radmanovic, Maurice Evans and Shammond Williams will strengthen the Lakers.

"We made some key additions with those guys," Bryant said. "We turned some heads the way we performed last season. We were a very young team. We're still a young team. I think it will be exciting."

Bryant helped put on three clinics this summer -- in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Philadelphia -- and will be part of a three-sport clinic Tuesday in conjunction with the New Orleans Recreation Department and the Fox Sports Network's "Best Damn Sports Show Period."

"It's an uphill battle," Bryant said, referring to the ongoing recovery from Hurricane Katrina. "With any uphill battle, the important thing is to take it one day at a time. They're not alone in this."

Member of the New Orleans Saints are expected to participate along with the New Orleans Hornets and the New Orleans Zephyrs, a Triple-A baseball team.

During the summer, Bryant toured Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. While in Taipei, he was quoted as saying the U.S. basketball team will have to work on its chemistry to perform well at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Didn't happen, he says now.

"Those words never came out of my mouth," he said. "I think something must have gotten lost in translation. Obviously, they misunderstood everything I was saying."

Bryant plans on playing in the Olympics, joining the likes of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade. He credits other national teams for improved play, pointing to the world championships as a good example. The U.S. lost to Greece in the semifinals and finished with the bronze medal.

"I think they played extremely well," he said, referring to the American team. "Greece played better on that day. What can you say? It's on us to have that challenge to step up to that level."

NEW NBA Ball ... Shaq speaks out:
(http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/3136/capt763e87bcb6dd4b0c933f08ddd3c0c5ebheatmediadayflad1ai4.jpg)

"I think the new ball is terrible," O'Neal said Monday. "It's the worst decision some expert, whoever did it, made. ... The NBA's been around how long? A hundred years? Fifty years? So to change it now, whoever that person is needs his college degree revoked. It's a terrible decision."

"Feels like one of those cheap balls that you buy at the toy store, indoor-outdoor balls," O'Neal said. "I look for shooting percentages to be way down and turnovers to be way up, because when the ball gets wet you can't really control it. Whoever did that needs to be fired. It was terrible, a terrible decision. Awful. I might get fined for saying that, but so what?"

Nash got a hair cut FINALLY

Most analysts are saying he'll end up in Minnesota.  I wouldn't mind that since he'll be leaving the East.

There was a crazy rumour earlier in the day of talks of a Raps-76ers swap for Iverson.  It was something like AI <=> Mo Pete, Fred Jones, 1st rounder + scrubs.  I'm very happy that didn't go down but then it didn't make much sense either.  AI would kill my Raps and completely destroy the "rebuilding" that has been done so far.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, Iverson is way overrated.

It should be announced today what the punishment will be for the players involved in the Knicks/Nuggets brawl.
The suspensions from this will come down hard on those involved, and it could be Melo getting hit hardest, since he threw a punch that landed.

Melo's been lighting it up, leading the league in scoring, but this will end up hurting the Nuggets big, depending on what his suspension will turn out to be.

On another note, I still gotta wonder where A.I. might end up going to.
AFAIK, the Nuggets seemed the frontrunner for possibly getting Iverson, but after the brawl on Saturday, that might have hurt their chances for getting him.

Gilbert Arenas going off and getting 60 against the Lakers, helping his team to win in OT.
Wizards got their 4 game road trip off to a good start....they play the Nuggets next.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2701228


7 players suspended for a total of 47 games for the Nuggets/Knicks brawl.

Melo got 15, J.R. Smith and Nate Robinson each got 10, Mardy Collins got 6, Jared Jeffries got 4, and Nene and Jerome James got 1 game apiece for leaving their respectives benches when the fight happened.

Both clubs were fined $500,000 each.

I thought the suspensions were gonna be stiffer, since David Stern has a "Zero Tolerance" policy in place.

Now that Iverson's in the West, I've heard that this will cause a shift in the AllStar voting, what with all the votes that A.I. got while he was still with the 76er's have now come with him to the Nuggets.

That puts him in the top 3 voting for West guards, with Kobe and T-Mac.

Here's a question: Who will be the West coach in the AllStar game?

From I hear, it might the Spurs Coach Pop again, as long as the Spurs keep winning and stay on top the West with the best record.

Another thing, the Suns have run off a franchise best 15 game winning streak.
Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: RatBastich on December 21, 2006, 07:44:53 PM
Iverson's first game as a Denver Nugget is Friday, against the Kings.

Nowitzki went down during the Mavs/Sonic's game last night, rolling his ankle, after the Sonic's Wilcox lost his balance coming down after a rebound attempt, and ended up kicking Nowitzki's ankle, causing it to roll.

Nowitzki was helped off the court, and his ankle x-rayed, the results coming back negative.
He'll be re-examined in Dallas.

The Nuggets/Sun's game was postponed due to the snowstorm that's hit Denver hard, and hasn't been rescheduled yet.

Spurs won their game last night to keep a game and a half ahead in the mid-West division, and maintain the best record in the NBA.
It was a game the Spurs should won going away, without a problem against the last place Grizzlies, but in the second half, the Grizzlies gave back and made a run, but with timely baskets by Micheal Finley, the Spurs held on to get the win.

^^ Idiot. You think the Spurs are still an elite team. The only elite teams this year is Dallas and Phoenix. Yes they won 3 championship. With the team they had for years they should of won ant least five. Spurs cant rebound, block shots, cant defend the post, and there freakin old. The only hope for me to believe is that when Elson comes back hell give the spurs the low post present to defend.

Go Spurs Go



way to love the spurs......

Spurs not elite team? what kinda statment is that. sure, they've been struggling for the past few games. but u know they will get back on track. Suns has yet to prove anything in the playoffs for the last two yrs. until they can prove to the world they can win with offense first style bball, spurs will take them in the playoffs. Dallas is the only team right now that looks like they can win championship this season.

rockets can be an elite team when yao and tmac is healthy.

Oh yeah, I love that Yao Ming denying he's having an affair with Nia Long. "Isn't it too ridiculous?" he said. "I saw the news on Internet. The writer is so good at hoaxes. What's that? She's only 1.57m. I'm 2.26m. Does it sound reasonable?"

The report said Yao had first seen Long in the 1990s television series "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air", in which she played the love interest of Will Smith's lead character. :lol:


Lakers ROLLED up the Spurs! Well, not. Up by 10...d'oh came to a few key baskets by Kobe down the stretch. 100-96 was too close...too many turnovers.

i wonder what the consensus will be on denver's season...

i'm betting most people here think that the nuggets will definitely make the postseason (a view i also share), but we all probably differ on the seed #.

Right now, they're #7 with 22 wins.

@ #6 :Houston with 25 wins
@#5: Lakers with 27 wins
@ #4: utah (their division leader) with 28 wins.

any predictions on how the nuggets will wind up?

i've actually pencilled the lakers at #5 (mav->suns->san antone) with a better record than the #4 seed (i'm putting denver here....i think they'll make a good run) and #6 for utah, #7 houston, #8 clippers (they're only 1/2 game away from #8!)

what do you think??

I think Houston might slip a bit, they always seem to choke down the stretch, Never count out the Wolves too, they will get their act together and fight for #8.

well, you know the new seed system for the playoffs, right? division winners + 4th best record in conference = 1-4 in the seeds, based on who has the best record between those three.

only way the lakers get 4th seed is if they beat out san antonio for 4th best record (considering mavericks will get 1st in that division vs san antonio, phoenix will get 1st in laker's division, and either utah or denver gets 1st in their division).  then the next 1-4 spot goes to the next best record, which is most likely san antonio.

hopefully we get 4th, but i wouldn't bet on it.

did u hear? dwayne casey, coach for minnesota got canned for going 20-20. i'm betting minnesota might not make that 8th seed, now.

I wonder if KG will still be with the T-Wolves after the AllStar break, seeing as there's still the possible trade rumors still circulating that the T-Wolves are looking to trade KG, which might do him good, send him to a team thats a contender, depending if any trade might happen, and with whom.

trade rumors are to be expected, right now...HOWEVER, i don't think there's much truth to it.  here's why:
1) they're still in the playoff hunt
2) they got 1.5 yrs left on that contract...they could always trade him in the offseason and still get approximate value
3) he's called the BIG TICKET for a reason
4) what sort of value would they get halfway into the season?? maybe a desperate contender like miami (ps, they SUCK this year...shaq's been done)

the only scenarios i can see is chicago. chicago's got everything that minnesota wants, picks+potential star+star.  if KG does go to chicago, WATCH OUT!

That OT was crazy as hell, yo, had the 'ol ticker just thumping like an 808.
5 lead changes in the final minute, Kobe just stroking his shot, hitting them.

Duncan hitting his shots, keeping it going, then Finley nailing that trey to put the Spurs up by 2 with 1.7 seconds left on the clock.

Thats what I'm talking bout, man, games like that are mad crazy to watch, but I love that stuff better than blowouts, keeps ya on the edge of your seat, going ape shit with every possession. XD

i really don't think nash + dirk are the two best players in the league. i think dirk+kobe, but not nash.

no one has ever said "yeah, i'm afraid of guarding nash. he's unguardable".
also, not that hard to extend your win streak when amare is playing ridiculous.  remember, suns have 3 all stars. that'd be like kobe, shaq, and another all star! crazy...

also, lakers (i've said it many times already) are still a young team and need to learn how to put players away.  Bynum, still 19!, has about 2 years before he becomes a more complete player.   his power moves are still weak and slow...

lakers were up by 10 with 4 minutes or so left, remember...

^ dunno about kobe being the best. Scorer in terms like gilbert arenas. Hes better now since he became less selfish w/ the rock. Nash makes his team better period. Sure he can be guarded but when you avg that many assists a game how many players around him score. Adding amare to the mix makes the Suns more powerful in the west. Dirk + Nash 2 player race for the MVP.

^Well, Manu and Coach Pop had already said after that game that they knew it was an accident, since Kobe isn't that sort to do something like that intentionally.

It would seem, though, that the League took it another way and decided to suspend Kobe for one game without pay.
IMO, none of that was necessary, because Kobe is a stand up guy, but what can you do, the NBA is walking on eggshells after that fight between the Knicks/Nuggets, trying to maintain a good image with the fans.

Now its back to the business of b-ball and winning games, teams fighting for playoff spots.

Dallas is only playing this well because of the new role players. Devean George is playing so well for them.

It's true. The NBA is out to get Kobe. Slap Korver and get T'd up. SHIT, Kobe is just old school. Hard nosed, grind it out. He used to get the most calls in the NBA --- led the league practically in free throws. Now -- NOTHING.

Here's what Kobe's been "writing" in his blog:
http://news.kb24.com/index.php?id=196

Quote from: Kobe

This is as frustrated as I've been in a long time.

Injuries to our team don't seem to stop.

Now we have to deal with my suspension and another loss to the Bucks.

But life isn't about feeling sorry for yourself or the position you find yourself in.

Its about accepting it and going from there with a determination that we will endure at all cost, no matter what!

So now its off to Philly. Let's see if we can't get the engines revved up again.

Strength and Honor.

- Two4


Watch the players in the 60s to the 80s and they are practically demolishing each other. THAT'S HARDCORE!! And Kobe has that mentality every fuckin night. Other guys --- AI, Wade too.

I love this quote from Jim Rome - so fuckin true. There's that drive that Lebron can NEVER have.

Quote
Kobe Bryant wasn’t about to just sit back and watch his season go down the drain. And that rap that he was a dirty player was just what that guy needed to get him going again, as he dropped 65 on Portland and then 50 on Minnesota last night.

You just know his coach, Big Chief Hippie, went to him and said, ‘Hey Kobe, you know all that stuff I told you about feeling the game out, letting it come to you and getting your teammates involved, screw it. Jack it up every time you get it. Forget the Triangle; it’s a big waste of time anyway. Just put the ball in the hole.

Never mind, the other four guys in yellow gear, do what you do, just get us to the finish line. Bryant says the biggest reason he was able to get off is because of the return of Lamar Odom and Luke Walton, that in his words, they’re good at recognizing situations on the floor.

Translation: They’re better at getting me the ball and staying the hell out of my way, than the other guys I run with. That’s what makes 24, 24. He has that chip on his shoulder, he can find another gear and this is why you don’t want any part of the Lakers in the postseason. No, he can’t win an NBA title by himself, but you definitely don’t want to run into these guys in the playoffs. Assuming Bryant doesn’t die before he gets there.

Next up, Hornets tmr. He tied Michael Jordan for most 60 point games and is only the 4th player in NBA history to do it in 3 straight games. The others being Elgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain.

I think Diek deserves it. AS good as Kobe had been, in my view, the MVP should be given to a guy whose team is dominating the league. Though we'll still have to see how they go in the post season, the way that the Mavs have played in the regular season, they were like the 1996-97 bulls and Dirk is the cornerstone of that great team, so give it to him.

I am back! 

Man, who have though the Rox survived this time without T-Mac or Yao for several months.....but I don't think the Rox can beat the Jazz although I will be rooting for them.  T-Mac and McGrady are just still not mature enough to play their heart out every game or to close out games.  As JVG said, "They just still don't get it, like the rest of the east."  Jazz will have a tough schedule right before the playoff begins, this might help them mentally prepared for the playoff.

San Antonio has shifted up a gear again, but I don't think they can take Dallas down anymore.....  Dallas is just too good to beat everyone.  The only weakness of Dallas might be themselves.  Do they still have all the energy and fire after winning so many games in the regular season?  Will their body failing them during playoff time after the excellent effort nights in and nights out during the regular season? 

I predict Dallas to win this year.

Which playoff matchups are you guys most looking forward to?  For me its the Raps vs. Nets. I'm from Toronto but thats not the main reason why, but because I wanna see the Raps fuckin destroy Carter and his Nets.

It be nice if KG went to the lakers, I think they'd finally have a chance at getting back to the finals, I honestly doubt they'll get past the suns in the first round seeing how they just lost 2 recent games to them. Bynum may be the future be he still has some time to go to get into that position, the nets wanted to do the J Kidd to the lakers trade but the lakers wouldn't give up bynum so I dunno if they'd let him go for KG but I would do it if I were Mitch Kupchack.

As far as playoff matchups, I would love to see my Rockets get past the first round, looks like it'll be them and utah with their game tonight being a preview of what's to come, I expect it to be a very playoff atmosphere type of game, I think ESPN needs to air that game instead of damn Hornets vs Clippers, I think the Warriors have a lock for the 8th spot. I also would like the Heat to stay matched up with the Cavs in the first round, the Bulls seem to be a troublesome team for them so we'll see how things go!

And funny Joey Crawford got suspended indefintiely. I remember Shaq swearing on TV that the refs are taking over the game...Crawford always had something for him and Karl Malone.

D@MN!  Raps lose to the Nets in the first game.  I'm pretty scared of the big 3 simply because Jefferson is regaining his form since the injury.  I still hope the Raps can take the series in 6 or 7.  I was so depressed yesterday after the loss.

At the same time, the Bulls looks pretty decent.  How about that Tyrus Thomas...
I'm not too interested in the western matchups until the 2nd round.

^^I know what you mean. Raps were playing great basketball yesterday but the Nets have those playoff experience players thats been in these situations and know what they have to do to win, and it showed.  i still have high hopes for the Raps tho.... id say the raps will take it in 6.

It's halftime for Lakers vs. Suns game right now... and all i have to say is KOBE IS ON FIRE!!!  ;D ;D ;D

Lakers dropped the ball in game 1, now Suns lead 1-0.

In the first half, the Lakers were doing it, playing good, but in the second half, it looked like they got away from their gameplan, and weren't doing what they did in the first half.

I was actually hoping for the Lakers to take game 1.

I knew the Warriors were for real, going 6-1 against dallas in their last 7 meetings is one, the other is that Golden State finished the season 9-1 (same as Denver, who also won).  Those two stand for something and i believe Golden state will give dallas a run for their money. Go Warriors! :D

Haha, what a Chaos in the past few days in playoff.  SA and DAL were both lost.  I guess I kinda overestimated Jazz..... what happened to them?  Is this the same team that started with a bang in the begining of the season?  I wanted Rox to win but still I can't bear watching Jazz with such great talent got eliminated like that.

Go GS!!!  Pull a major upset to shut Mark Cuban up!!  You guys can do it!
AI and Melo finally started to gel, with Camby and many young athletic players (Nene), they really can surprise everyone in the league.  I guess Spurs players are just officially too old to play in such competitive level now.

Man I'm thinking the bulls lost that last game of the regular season just so they could drop to 5th seed and face miami, they matchup and play better against them then just about any other team, I still think they gave the heat more of a run last playoffs than any other team in the east.

Yeah, I have a feeling there will be a couple teams getting swept, ie Lakers, Magic, Jazz, now possibly heat.

C'mon D-Wade, step it up!

And damn Kapono and Posey missing all their damn 3's knock em down1!!!!  >:(

thanks daigong :)

yeah its been a very long long long long wait
..me being a warriors fan for 20 years+
,its been very depressing year after year watching the playoffs
and your favorite team not being there

as u can imagine.its crazy back here in the bay area
especially after that first game whipping of the mavs,
if we win tonight you can kiss the mavs goodbye as it will most likely be a sweep,
not a chance to win at our place...it will be tougher to win against
the nuggets or spurs though as they match up better

maybe after this series win we will get a little respect..what the fucks up with TNT?!?!

Barkley calling us midgets and having no chance against them...saying the mavs will win 4-0 or 4-1
..no one is saying anything good about us except Magic is giving us some props,
also i noticed in there studio there supposed to have 16 banners for all the playoff teams....
and theres only 15 ..guess which one is missing...yup the dubs ..i think barkley ate it

daigong since the lakers are on there way out...root on the warriors for us :)

p.s ..nice seeing alot of people rooting for the warriors

Haha, damn I didn't hear bout the TNT crew cracking on ya warriors. Yeah man they aint fair as good as game one last night, tempers flared, I think it was BS they gave Baron that second technical for clapping, I stopped watching with like 6 mins left in the 4th and didn't catch Stephen Jackson getting the boot also. It's a tought loss but ya'll did what you were supposed to though, steal homecourt by taking one game, so hopefully ya'll can do what u did in game one when u head back to the bay.

Tonight though, I'm hoping my Rockets continue what they been doing, I'm tryna see them get out that first round!

Yeah man, I had to turn it off at halftime and just listen to the rest of the game on the radio.  Didn't want to watch them play anymore...Joey Graham was pissing me off too much.

Title: Re: Official NBA Thread
Post by: RatBastich on April 29, 2007, 03:34:52 AM
Cavs beat the Wizards and lead the series 3-0.
If the Cavs can close it out in game 4 and sweep the Wizards, I say they'll meet the Nets in the 2nd round.

From the way things look, the Pistons will be playing the Bulls in the 2nd round, provided that the Bulls can complete the sweep of the Heat in game 4, but you can't count out the defending champs until the final buzzer.

The East 1st round has one team already swept, with 2 others looking to be swept as well.


Over in the West, the Spurs have taken a 2-1 lead in their series with the Nuggets.........YES~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Warriors lead their series, 2-1, with the Mavs........I hope they can do it again in game 4 and really put the Mavs up against the wall.

The Suns lead 2-1 in their series against the Lakers.
If the Lakers can keep it together, and play like they did in game 3, or better, they can even up this series.
The Jazz lead 2-1 over the Rockets, with game 4 going on right now.
Rockets gotta keep playing tough, or they'll be heading back to Houston with a tied series.

The warriors need to play with the same level of intensity in order follow through with the series. The other cats on the team need to step it up though, they can't rely on Baron Davis to carry the team all the time, his knees will fall off!  Let's hope they can get it done in game 4.  GO GO WARRIORS!!
Title: Re: Official NBA Thread
Post by: Kobasew on April 29, 2007, 03:04:46 PM
I'm supporting the Warriors too.  Although they knocked out the Clips (my 2nd favourite team) for the last playoff seed, it's good that they're actually making use of 8th whereas the Clips probably would have just gotten swept.

The Rockets/Jazz series is looking to be an exciting series.  The Jazz weren't playing too well going into the playoffs and were down 2-0.  Who would have thought they'd pull even now.  Go Kirilenko!

The Nets tore up the Raptors, sustaining a 30 point lead and blew them out.
Nets will have a 3-1 lead and can close it out in game 5 in Toronto.

Next game coming up on TNT is game 4 of the Warriors/Mavs series, with the Warriors leading 2-1.
Pulling for the Warriors to hopefully do it again, and take game 4.

Can Warriors really pull it off? Especially when Dallas looked quite unbeatable through out the regular season? Baron Davis is simply killing them.

On the other hand, I'm not too surprised by the bulls result, Miami had been limping all year, Shaq and Zo are on their last legs, Walker had fallen from an all-star to a bit player. Jason Williams is...Jason Williams. Expecting the Cavs to sweep Washington as well.

MVP is supposed to be for statistics of regular season. But  I think the votes of sportswriters are not in yet until later the playoffs

MVP gets awarded in the second round of the playoffs so there's a chance the first round performances of the players may influence it.

anything that happens in the playoffs does not affect the MVP for the season as
the votes are all in before the playoff starts.

I'm from San Antonio but will never like the Spurs, since most are bandwagon fans after the Tim Duncan acquisition.  That and I did work for the Spurs in their legal counsel.

OH HELL YEAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

Spurs have done it, win their 1st round series 4-1, deja vu against the Nuggets from 2 years ago.
Now they wait and see who their 2nd round opponent will be.
