Title: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: goldpony on Nov 01, 2007, 03:12 PM
i noticed somw NBA threads but they were mainly for playoffs and allstar game. So this is a general NBA thread. Who does everyone like this year? In the east i like the celts and in the west i jumped on the bandwagon and picked the spurs. i just hope last nights game wasn't indicative of clevelands season :'(

the cleveland cavaliers is one of the shittiest organizations in all of pro basketball. the whole referee scandal during the offseason this year. proved that the NBA was picking and choosing who they wanted to win games. the cavs should have never been in the finals last year


cleveland will be lucky to make the playoffs this year

cleveland will be lucky to make the playoffs this year

i know, but the cavs got real lucky last year. i dont think the officiating had anything to do with it. mostly lebron playing out of his mind in a super weak conference. it will be real hard to repeat with all the talent the east got this year. plus, the cavs still have ira fucking newble on the roster. i wouldnt pick him to be on my pickup squad at the y.
Title: Re: The NBA its faaaaantastic
Post by: bangbang240 on Nov 02, 2007, 10:14 PM
Yeah Cleveland is shit... In the east its probably gonna be Pistons or Bulls, although I would love to see the Celtics actually come together.. and out west its probably the Spurs even though I despise them... although that's probably because I am a life long Suns fan... Speaking of Suns we still have the most talented starting line-up in basketball...

With the addition of kapono and the fact that bargnani is starting at centre this year, we are going to be very tough to defend. Having a centre who can shoot 3's really opens up everything.

Post by: goldpony on Nov 07, 2007, 07:02 PM
pretty much sums up the season. from espn.com

Quote
Brian (SF, CA): John, with Sasha Pavlovic back isn't it time the Cavs demoted Larry Hughes from the starting lineup? He looks even worse in the first few games than the past couple years, which is saying something.

John Hollinger: I am so flabbergasted by what's happened to Hughes. Even in the worst-case scenario I didn't imagine he could be this bad. Somehow his penetration ability is just gone, and he's become an erratic mid-range jump shooter .... that said, he's still probably better than Sasha.

What would be funny is if for just one week even, they only let white people in the NBA play. They should do that. Alls you would see is passing. Maybe John Stockton would come out of retirement.

Feb. 21: Detroit sends Primoz Brezec to Toronto for Juan Dixon





For Toronto: The Euraptors were crestfallen when they acquired Dixon at the deadline last year and found out he was American. Exchanging him for Brezec fixes that nagging problem.



Also, Brezec is huge, and Toronto is desperate for size at the moment. But he's been horrid in his limited appearances the past two seasons. Personally, I'd rather have the guy who can play a little. Grade: C+

Every season there is always a team that before Playoffs is gonna win it all, it happened before with Mavericks last year, Phoenix in 06, now Celtics 08. I think you just have to play your game and not label teams already as champions. Every season that no one gives a shit about Spurs they show that they can win without putting them as champions before the season ends, so we will wait and see.

the Cavs can hang with any team in the east, except maybe boston. theyll go deeper than the first round. Lebron is shaping up to be the best baller ever. hes not there yet but if he keeps producing like he has he WILL surpass jordan in terms of talent if not titles

You must be from Ohio :)
but kobe bryant is already that. I think hes the closest player to resemble MJ.
carbon copy.

lebrawn is good .... but not nowhere near as talented as some of the others in the association.
I think his game will be more like magic's ...nowhere near jordans.

this is the first season ive actually been keeping up with since around 2000....the race in the west is some of the best Bball ever.

awesome thanks dude, who do you think they should take?

everyone here is saying it should be derrick rose, which i could see why.
but then they better trade hinrich and duhon i guess, since rose is supposedly a "once-a-decade" point guard

All this shit is fixed. In game 4 was suppose to be foul on the spurs' last play, even the superiors NBA executives said that. It will be for sure the dinasties finals. Well thats what some want users want not boring but fixed games ;)
If detroit wins today I will be watching the finals otherwise no basketball for me until Olympic in august.

cant believe nobody ripped me apart for that yet


but honestly. i thought the lakers were home. i couldnt believe celtics were when they game started.. anyway

the paul pierce thing was funny on replay. jalen rose just said on espn that he looked like he got shot. and when they showed the replay. that was how he was reacting.. getting carried off and shit like he got shot

anyway. it was a good game. but the series is only gonna get better now

this will be disproven when lebron james wins the next 7 titles all by himself. maybe theyll give him a blind monkey to keep things interesting, but he will do it. i can see the commentary now "james drives to the basket guarded by all five guys, the blind monkey is open, james ignores the monkey and takes it to the HOUSE!"

yeah seriously, a solid PG is crucial nowadays.

which brings me to my point of my Bulls taking Derrick Rose. pleeeeease dont take beasley. having Rose would make us a playoff team

but that team is gonna be really really good

andre miller
thadeus young
andre iguodala
elton brand
samuel dalembert


thats one of the best starting fives in the nba.. they really need a good shooter off the bench

thaddeus young is the man too.. hes gonna end up being incredible. and this will only be his 2nd season in the pros

i agree, i think the East will be slightly better this season. The Pistons are always in it, I'm hoping the Bulls get their act together (too bad Rose won't start right away though...), and even Bucks made some excellent deals to try to contend this year, so the Central Division will be very competitive

and now in Atlantic we have to throw in Philly in with the C's, and who knows what will come to be with the Beasley/Wade combo. they could be back as well

really? dalembert and iguodala are pretty selfish players (the little ive seen them), andre miller will be 34 and brand has never won anything or made his teammates better. remember, that one season the clippers were good, livingston played out of his mind and cassell, who had a tendency to make teams better, just joined the team. i think theyll be good, but not finals good

he got 20 mill (US) for 3 years with an opt out each year. atl offered 36 mill but he didnt feel wanted and he was restricted so he goes to greece and atl gets to keep his rights but stays on their cap if they make offers. atl wont do that so he basically made himself unrestricted and only has to play a year in greece then can sign with any team

yeah they will still win the division.

look at it this way- A.I. is still a great player. McDyess plays like he is about 46. and they don't really need Billups because they have a stud of a young point guard in Rodney Stuckey.

dont get me wrong tho...i still hope they have an epic fail.

i just dont see the talent meshing up there now. i mean sheed and AI on the same team. billups and hamilton were the glue guys on that team with billups being the alpha dog. without him, i dont like the makeup of this team. i could def be wrong (and i hope i am) but with this trade, i dont see em contending after this year (ddepending on who they get next year)

the rumor was varejao & szczerbiak for marion. but like i said i doubt they'd do it. having 3 legit big men like ilgauskas, ben wallace & varejao is a major factor for them. they're a real deep team, & they're just hittin on all cylinders right now, so there's no reason to mess with that & gamble with that kinda move

Curry should be an interesting player in the NBA. I hope he's successful, but I have a feeling he's gonna end up like JJ Redick.

And the Finals are going to be Lakers/Cavs. They are by far the 2 best teams in the league, especially with Manu hurt and Garnett out. And our Bulls looked horrendous tonight. Jesus H Christ.

it's gonna be interesting in the next couple years, though. i do hope the rockets finally win a series this year, but man portland is going to be a great team soon.

this is one of the best nba playoffs that i've ever watched. and this is coming from a lifelong bulls fan who grew up in the dynasty years.

just basically every series this year has been fun to watch. I really thought it was easily going to be Kobe vs Lebron. but now both the teams are having some troubles. tonight's game is just another example of how awesome these playoffs are.

oh and in conclusion, now I don't see the Lakers winning in 6.

i have been avoiding this thread like the plague. i still cant get over the fact the Cavs lost. and no, it wasnt because they were standing around watching lebron, it was because we had no answer for their lineup. when we go small we are too small and when we try to defend the paint, they got like 3 7-footers on the perimeter that can hit treys. also, the shots were just not falling, the magic d gave everyone on the Cavs good looks but they werent dropping. that is why it is so frustating, we couldnt match up against them and their "defense" was letting us get open but we couldnt convert. i was really hoping the Cleveland curse died this year....

the NBA sucks now days. it's sick that a douche bag like kobe gets rewarded with a roster he can't possibly lose with, and he gets all the credit like he's the best, when really that roster is so good you could take kobe off and fill his spot with brandon roy and it's still an easy title. same with wade pierce lebron, or even ray allen. any of them fill in for kobe and it's still an easy title. this isn't at all like what Michael Jordan did, he carried the bulls. these lakers carry kobe, yet it's made to look the same. take michael off those bulls teams and replace him with any name i named including kobe and they get far less titles if any. lebron would do the best, he's the best in the nba now. kobe is a fraud, he's been on damage control ever sine the rape, acting all nice it's so fake it's just gross. he's a douche, he can't fool me. i'd love to see what he could do with that crappy cavs roster. 45 wins tops

I really hope the Suns knock off the Lakers, however unlikely that may be. Also, I really thought the LA-Utah series was going to go at least 6 games.

I know the chances are slim to none, but the media in Chicago seems to think LeBron wants to come play with the Bulls. now if we can get John Calipari to leave Kentucky, that at least would be a step in the right direction since supposedly the 2 of them are good friends.

sorry. i'm frustrated. i'm just pissed at how this all went down. with "the decision" special, with wade for bad-mouthing his hometown, the way LBJ ditched his hometown. for the first time ever, i actually feel really bad for cleveland. this is a shot to the gut, a kick to the balls, etc.

Post by: There Will Be Blood on Jul 10, 2010, 04:38 PM
Cleveland had six years to build a championship team, Yeah they sign Shaq but lets face it they really didn't do much. You can't blame Lebron for wanting to win a ring.  D wade never bad mouthed Chicago at all! All he said was the fans in Chicago are not loyal. He even mention that Chicago will always be where his heart is.

Bright Lights, Chicago Bulls are looking really good coming up. You got a good team man.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Jul 10, 2010, 09:53 PM
Wade told other players that the actual team (our owner and president) wasn't loyal. either way, most of the fans in chicago are pretty damn loyal with all sports. but with the bulls, we were still doing well in attendance and getting sellout crowds even after MJ left. and Reinsdorf, the owner, is a fucking great owner and extremely loyal to his old players with giving them jobs as GM, coaches, announcers, etc.

Whatever though, either way the Bulls will be better, yes. We should start winning the division again. But my best comparison for my team is that we will be like the Knicks of the 90s- win some divisions, have great players, maybe win a playoff series or 2, but not any championships. And the Eastern Conference just got a lot more interesting this week, so it will be an interesting next couple of years.

And next summer Carmelo is a free agent...

yup

Did the Bulls acquire anyone else besides Boozer?
we signed Kyle Korver who is will easily replace Kirk Hinrich as a good pure shooter. And we are close to getting JJ Redick, who I'm still high on since his days at Duke, but that will only be if the Magic don't want him back. and Ronnie Brewer is still available, who we are supposedly interested in getting and would be a huge help on defense. Basically, we actually should have a pretty good team, and if Rose can keep getting better, who knows maybe can compete with the powers on the east coast.

Anyone really think anyone is going to win a championship in the next 5 years besides these teams:

Chicago
LA
San Antonio
Miami
OKC

Maybe New York if they get lucky and trade for steve nash and carmello. I doubt they have the assets though.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Jan 17, 2011, 11:41 PM
I would throw in Orlando and Utah as potential cinderella teams. I think they both can be dangerous in the playoffs. I hope you're right about the Bulls, and just looking ahead a few years, I really think it's only OKC, Chicago, Miami, and maybe NY because Boston and LA are still good, but starting to show some age, and who knows what happens when Phil Jackson leaves.

At the beginning of the year I took the popular Boston-Lakers picks for the Finals. But damn, the Spurs just don't let up. If they stay healthy this could be their last hurrah.

On another topic, I have to re-iterate that Rose needs to be MVP. Today he went and got first career triple-double with both Noah and Boozer injured. Deng is having a solid year picking up some of the slack, but this is by far Rose's team.

is it safe to say now that within a year or 2, only about 6 big market teams (not counting OKC) will own the NBA? This Carmelo trade hurts the Bulls, I honestly now put the Knicks higher than them. And mark my words, Deron Williams or Chris Paul goes to NY next year.

This just means the bad teams are going to be worse for even longer, maybe eventually building through the draft.

I really think the raptors franchise will never win a championship (no one will stay), they should just fold. But they are making money.

It's different in the NHL, small market teams can win the cup.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Feb 23, 2011, 12:10 AM
NFL too. Teams seem to be able to go from last to first, or vice-versa, in hockey and football. But with MLB and the NBA is the opposite. Once Boston gets old and dies already, there's basically teams in the 3 biggest markets in the East that will probably dominate. I guess it's good for the league as a whole, but yeah I feel bad for teams like the Raptors, Cavs, Kings, Grizzlies, etc. I just can't see any of those teams even contending for, well, basically this generation.

What makes things worse for you is that basically you got nothing for Bosh, whereas Denver can at least walk away with a few draft picks and decent players to start building a team with.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: Corleone on Feb 23, 2011, 01:10 AM
Yeah exactly, Bosh is such a fucking loser though, he's the type of guy that will flex his arms at the crowd in an allstar game...after a fucking layup... , lol what a clown


Basically last year he didn't try for 2nd half of the season, didn't want to risk getting injured and loosing his big contract. He didn't even tell them his intentions, fuck him. all his game is, is getting to the free throw line, or dominating shitty teams. He will get fucking owned in the playoffs by Garnett/Stodomire/Noah/Howard. Pretty much anyone good.

Post by: bright lights, big city on Feb 23, 2011, 03:59 PM
the East has gotten so good since last year. There are 6 teams that have some serious talent... and then 9 teams that suck hard.

The Clips owner has vowed to re-sign Griffin, but does anyone honestly believe him? I just assumed he'd go to the Lakers, but the Spurs, that's an interesting thought. It's hard to imagine them being irrelevant, but to avoid sucking in the next couple of year they do need to make a big signing. Someone big to replace Duncan. Maybe they trade for Dwight Howard next year?

I love thinking of possible NBA trades, I wish I could be a GM.

That was a great dunk however I laugh @ the fact that all the "dead" bulls fans now are going to the stadium and not when the team was shit back in 08 with Rose included.Noah has become a cocky cunt and for that even tough I hate Heat I would rather them to win.In the other hand what a nice beating OKC did on those cocky assholes of Grizzlies Hahahaha.What is gonna happen now on Mavs-Thunder?Westbrook and Durant have been a killer duo.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on May 17, 2011, 03:17 AM
I hate Tony Allen, and I'm usually pretty lenient with people from Chicago, but the dude's a fucking twat. And Zach Randolph doesn't really do much off the court to help his "good guy" cause. But yeah OKC is really good. Durant's Durant, but who I've been impressed with is Westbrook. When he's unselfish, and goes out and gets 10 assists the Thunder are an elite team. That said, I think this is Dallas' year finally. Dirk has been unstoppable for a couple months now, and everyone around him is stepping up. Who knew Dallas would be where Kidd and Stojakavic revitalized their careers? They've got enough veteran leadership, playoff experience and key pieces to maybe win the West, at least.

As for my Bulls, actually I think their attendance was fine throughout the decade after MJ. Basketball and football (and the Cubs, but I don't count them) here are always huge. They sell out all the time. The Sox and Blackhawks are the teams that have had terrible attendance, even in decent winning years, let alone when they are last in the standings. I'm watching the Sox game now and the seats are about 2/3 empty, haha.

I can see why anyone would dislike Noah. He's your classic team-player-energy-guy-great-teammate-fan-favorite who's got all the intangibles you need for a winner. You'd love him if he was on your team. I've got a great example of this. Dennis Rodman was on the bad-boy Pistons. Everyone hated him outside of Michigan, but eventually the Bulls traded for him and he became our 3rd guy. Our energy guy. Honestly, those 3 years with the Bulls made him one of my favorite players of all time.

ESPN has actually done nothing but slurp Lebron and the "Heatles" since the last about 6 months. Royal, I'll meet you halfway in your Bulls overrated theory. Because they got the #1 seed, they're expectations went through the roof, when in reality the team is still very young and Rose is basically that entire team. This wasn't their year, they need another piece or 2 to make it past the Heat.

fuck it. I still love how humble the bulls players are. like the guy with the cats on the sig said we have coins every year.

Rose with a couple costly misses in the last Quarter, Noah and Boozer not having their best day as well, in the end that proved to be decisive.

Post by: bright lights, big city on May 27, 2011, 02:13 PM
The good news is that 4th quarter will only motivate Rose in the offseason (and hopefully Noah). But I just keep thinking about that 3rd quarter. There was about a 5 minute stretch where Miami scored 1 field goal, but attempted about 10 free throws. That kept them in the game. Refs kept them in the goddamn game. I'm not saying Boozer didn't hit Lebron in the face, but I just fairness in the NBA. Rose takes an elbow in the 2nd half, and he just gets a late whistle. Taj gets called for a technical for a "what did I do?" look while in a crowd of players. Yet the Big 2.5 argue and bitch to the refs at every fucking stoppage of play and nothing ever happens to them.

Staying awake till 5 AM was so worth it. The Mavericks were down and beaten, but came back eventually and showed some great fighting spirit and aggressiveness.
Jason Kidd is such an important player, and no need to talk about the man who brought the last 9 points for his team, Nowitzki.
 But what I enjoyed the most about last nights game, is the Mavericks have each others backs ... Marion, Chandler, Terry and the other guys always give 100% for their team. Looking forward to Sunday night already.

I know Im late in expressing, but hey, I happily exchange time delay for having the last part of the game cut out of the recording and ad breaks every 4 seconds.  But yeah - Ive got a whole 'anyone but Miami' thing going on, and game twos final quarter made me cock-a-hoop.  Theres something distinctly satisfying seeing a lanky German slotting home triumphantly.

not quite on the level of MJ-with-the-flu, but I was still impressed. He showed up when Dallas really needed him. Game 5 is a must win since it's their last home game. I really hope they win because Dirk has played at such a high level he deserves to be considered an all-time elite player. He's like Larry Bird out there. But he needs that championship.

I'll love it if Dallas wins this series (knocks on wood... yeah, I just did that). I didn't like when Boston assembled their 3-party and hated it when Miami got Bosh and LeBron. LeBron was pretty muched crowned the "next Jordan" right when he left high school for the NBA... earn it. Mostly, I just want to keep saying I've won as many NBA championships as LeBron. Go Mavs!

I'm really gonna go there, and say game 6 will be fixed. Steve Javie is reffing tonight's game, and he's one of the bigger pieces of shit as far as NBA refs go. But hey, I could just be biased since he did a couple of the Bulls/Heat games and blew quite a few calls in favor of Miami. And adding a 7th game to this would pay out big time for the NBA and Disney.

seriously though, from what I remember he was pretty good? Top ten in his draft? What about Flynn?
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Jun 17, 2011, 09:32 PM
apparently Jonny Flynn averages 10 points per game. That's news to me, since the Wolves have been arguably the worst franchise in the league with him on the team. But with Rubio, from what I've read, the impression I get is that he's not really wanted on his own team. In his last Euroleague game, he got 3 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists. I thought everyone from Europe is good at offense.

The Lakers also need a Center and it appears they're looking out for Howard as well. And with Tyson Chandler there is another Center out there who's a free agent, for sure a lot of teams want to have one of these guys.

what a dick. this lockout is huge, though. I wouldn't be surprised if we miss a whole season. and this might be the absolute worst time for the NBA to have a work stoppage; there are so many popular storylines, up and coming teams, the heat being hated, and we just had the best finals in years.

I think the NFL one will be resolved within a month or so, but there's just no much shit that needs to change with the NBA and the players and owners are waaaay further apart from each other compared to the NFL.

at least I still got hockey.

And I got NBA2K11. Been playing it a lot since last week, and damn that game is tough. CPU-opponents shoot like 99% if they go for three, hardly miss a pass and make steals all the time. But who's complaining here, if you're an ambitious player like me you will love this game. And if you want some arcade-like fun where you make easy shots all the time, then this game is probably not for you.

And I had to laugh so hard watching this, I know its old but still -

Steve Carell's "The Decision" - Spoofs LeBron James on the ESPY Awards (Uncut Version) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f7AtdF6B_0#ws)

Today I came across an interview with Dirk Nowitzki... about half a year old, but he had some interesting things to say.

For example, if Dwyane Wade and LeBron James had asked him to join Miami, he most likely would've said yes. But since they got an early agreement with Chris Bosh, it was clear that it was not going to happen.

Steve Nash, with whom he is befriended, wanted him to go to Phoenix, but after Stoudemire's departure, Nowitzki said he thought Dallas was the better team overall and thereby it doesn't make much sense for him to join the Suns.

He said he also had offers from the Bulls, Knicks, Clippers and Jets, but he felt like Dallas was the strongest team of those and he had faith in Mark Cuban to strengthen their rooster so they could win the championship one day.

Wise decision as we know ^_^
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)

Mavs kinda fucked up selling some players that helped that team to win their first championship.Barea,Chandler and some others that I cant recall.My Spurs play tonight lets see how they do on the last run of Manu,Parker and Duncan =(
Clippers needs to get better in the rebounds below their own ring and they also need a much better FT % other than that pretty fucking entertaining game.Jordan 9 blocks,Blake 22 points and Billups 20.Pretty fucking good.

Though it looks like Griffin leans on Perkins shoulder.. I'm not saying its a clear offensive foul, but I doubt there would've been any complaints if the referees had called it.

Have you guys ever been to an NBA game by the way? For me its a must-do next time I go to the States.

Post by: bright lights, big city on Jan 31, 2012, 05:15 PM
Maybe, but when the defender commits to jumping instead of holding his ground, and then makes body contact that's a blocking foul all the time.

I've been to a couple Bulls games, they are fun. If you love basketball, it's worth it, especially when you see some good teams/players. But it does get really expensive.

Deftonic makes it sound like he's glad DRose is out. If that's the case, fuck off. Not only can we put an asterisk on whoever wins the championship this year, but there's a likely possibility his career will be changed forever. Obviously terrible for the Bulls, but also devastating for the league.

The reigning MVP isn't some primadonna that craves the spotlight, he's Chicago's native son, perfectly representing his hometown. And now the most humble, down to earth player in the league is out for a year and may never be the same.

The Mavs looked good, but those were some heartbreaking losses to lose those close games.

Coach Carlisle of the Mavs said they are going to take Shawn Marion off of Durant tonight and put him on Westbrook. If they really do that and Dirk is guarding Kevin, I see him droppin at least 40. Dirk cant run with him all night he'll be tired score 20 and Mav's go down 3. its not like OKC is running away with these. it came down to the last shot both times. its a really good series though. I just hope we get through this. I'm predicting a Spurs - Heat Finals though. and i'll be all in for the spurs at that point. Dont worry Texas will Keep Bron Bron from winning not 1 not 2 not 3 not 45678 championships.

Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: deftones86 on May 03, 2012, 10:13 PM
Really I think the Lakers are the only team that can stop them, and that's because Bynum is finally playing like baby Shaq. But for most of the teams in the Western conference they are so up and down that any of them could fall apart at any moment, that is except for the Spurs. They and the Heat are the most consistent teams in the NBA right now.  But for now i'm holding out hope that Jason Terry actually plays like he can in the fourth, but the Mavs just don't have the fire power they had last year. And it doesn't matter if Carlisle says who's covering who, that can change after one time out. if Durant  hits more than two consecutive shots in the first I bet they go back. I'll take my chances that Westbrook will have an off game rather than Kevin Durant.

I know right. Those philly fans are just real winners. On a more positive note, for me at least, Nugs finally beat the lakers. And we've got another home game coming up. Very unhappy to see Bynum break Al Harrington's nose though. The lakers sure love those "Inadvertent" elbows.

Mavs are history,they were defeated in the last quarter after being up 13! The Mavs were a newspaper from yesterday these playoffs.Second champion to be wiped off on the first round,Heat experienced the same in 2007.
Clippers won by 1,once again thanks to CP3.They need to practice lots of FT and also Griffin needs to watch his ass due to many Technical fouls.
My Spurs won tonight but it took us until the second half of the game to do it.The first half was awful and Ginobili stills struggling.He was 0-8 on threes,however he made 10 assistances which is great.Monday last match,I hope so.

Agreed. The officiating is getting worse and worse. Almost as bad as the Tim Donaghy bullshit.

Tell me you're with me when I say the same thing about the 76ers. Only question I have is why? Why would Stern or the refs want Philadelphia moving on?

I am right there with you on that one. By the end of that game I was just shaking my head in disbelief. I believe it might be something do with the 76ers not having been in the playoffs since like 2003 I think, not to mention they haven't won a championship since like 82.

Oh well, they tried their best and matched the Lakers for most of the game. Unfortunately the refs lost it for them as is usual in LA. Not that they didn't make mistakes, but if it weren't for some ridiculous calls as well as about a million things the Lakers were not called for, they would have won plain and simple. Sometimes I don't even know why I bother to watch the NBA anymore. With the way officiating has all but deteriorated it doesn't even feel like a real sport to me anymore. It all just smacks of game rigging and compensation to me, and not just in this game. Philadelphia anyone?

I'd say it was more of OKC winning that game than the Spurs choking, even if it was an 18 point lead. The Thunder are just so good, and I can't see them not winning the title this year. It's just their time. And the scary part is that their Big 3 is all in their low 20s. The rest of the league better hope that when they get new contracts, the team won't be able to afford to keep the nucleus.

Amazing how similar OKC is to the '91 Bulls, aside from having a shittier coach and better point guard.

Good vs. evil, humble vs. arrogant, small city vs. big city. Obviously I'm rooting for OKC, and I'm also convinced that this is their time since we saw the changing of the guard when they beat the Spurs, the comparisons to the Bulls from 20 years ago, etc.

I'll take OKC in 6. Miami will steal at least one at OKC. Kevin Durant has the ability to hit the big shot to win, they didn't have that last year. Miami will implode if they don't win this year. Bosh will most certainly be gone. They need a big man. Bad.

For me the Finals are not nearly the same as last year.

hat Nowitzki and the Mavs did was phenomenal, OKC and Miami on the other hand were Finals contenders before the playoffs even started.

Needles to say whos gonna be the Finals MVP. Hate him or love him, but hes gonna get his first ring. LeBron with Nowitzki in 2011-like dedication and will-power, you gotta give him credit for that.

For me the NBA finished right after my Spurs were eliminated by OKC+The Refs+Stern so congratulations to ALL that team on their West Title.After that I didnt even know that the Heat won.I can imagine the media all over James' balls right after winning the title.In other news Tony Parker was injured on a fight on a club where Drake and someone else had an arguement over a Rihanna comment thus injuring Parker's Eye.He is going to take action against the bar and he might lose the Olympics and not be able to play for his national team of France.The Draft is next and I hope my Spurs get a nice surprise as they always do :) That is all.

I sort of did the same after the nuggets were gone. I'm getting so sick of the refs and stern. Also, I heard about that little bar fight where Tony Parker hurt his eye. I guess it was some stupid fight between Drake and Chris Brown over Rihanna of all bitches. And now Tony is mad at the bar rather than Drake or Brown for acting like teenagers. So called rappers nowadays. I can't believe this is what passes for men in our society now. Chris brown is a joke and Drake is a fucking child actor. For the love of Christ

We got shit,nothing,nada to fight this upcoming season.Duncan,Manu and Parker last season together for sure.I would love to see them with 1 more ring but I doubt it : / I might as well put them as my second team since Clippers is back with Billups and the experience of Hill.Not happy to see that moron Odom tough.

the Spurs are still the 3rd best team and they know how to win in the playoffs.  if the playoffs seed up right i could see them making it to the western conference finals they'll have trouble with OKC and the Clippers i don't think  the Lakers will be a problem for them because Duncan can handle Howard and all they added was Howard and Nash, and Nash is just another year older and Howard isn't that much better than Bynum.  the west is going to be pretty competitive. The Spurs can make one last push.  But i highly doubt they can beat The Bulls or the Heat in the finals. they will run them up and down the court.

I appreciate you showing confidence in the Bulls. But I don't think they even win their division this season. Their bench is still good, but DRose is basically out for the year, and that's killer. Good news is that there really only 6 or 7 decent teams in the East.

The West is definitely going to intense this year though. Can't wait to see how the Lakers play together.

Im really looking forward to watch the Spurs play this season, especially with De Colo joining Parker and Diaw, its a good Big French Three right there  8) If De Colo gains physical power, he has the potential of being a really important player, even after disapointing olympics.

And yeah between the Lakers, OKC, the Spurs and the Heat, its gonna be tight. I do also think that the Bulls are a little out without Rose, so suck it Noah for not coming to the olympics.

Yeah yeah, Im French. ;D

Yeah yeah I know that, and damn watching that fall freakin hurts each time. There was this big debate in France whether he was really trying his best to be in the french team for the olympics, and I was actually among the neutral ones. But giving the fact he didnt show up to the medical staff as soon as he could have still makes the whole thing looks suspicious; especially with Rose being out, and hence the Bulls needing him more than ever for the next season. So yeah, its business, he made his own choice and all, but playing for your national team is supposed to be an honor etc. Anyway, you get the picture, frustration, dude.

Can't wait to see the Lakers, it's gonna be the story for the season. Will definitely a couple months them to mesh, just look at the first year Miami was together. Nash-Gasol will be lethal, all Dwight needs to do is dunk the ball and block shots. Then there's Kobe, who inevitably will get pissed off that he's not getting his 25 shots a game. Should be awesome. And that's without even talking about their 2nd unit, which is garbage.

How about we do some predictions here though? Here's my shocking/non-homer 1-8 seedings in each conference:
EAST
1. Miami
2. Boston
3. Atlanta
4. Indiana
5. New York (THIS is an old team - even compared to LA)
6. Brooklyn
7. Chicago
8. Milwaukee
WEST
1. OKC
2. San Antonio
3. Lakers
4. Denver
5. Memphis
6. Utah
7. Clippers
8. Portland (I wanted to put New Orleans because I'm all in on Unibrow, but I'm wussing out)
FINALS
Heat over Lakers

The Mavs behind teams like Utah or Portland? No way man. Also everyone makes the Clippers stronger than they are, Billups is still injured and who do they have except for Paul and Griffin?

About the Mavs, not getting Deron sucked at first, but its probably better this way and I like the additions to the roster.
Kaman is a good player when hes fit, then theres good new options for the guard positions with Mayo and Collison.. next year in the draft they can go for the top free agents... Cuban did a good job if you ask me.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: deftones86 on Oct 27, 2012, 04:26 PM
Agreed. I really thought D.will was coming to Dallas. But they built a pretty good roster. Do I have fantasies of a finals appearance? No. Its not just Mayo. Kaman is probably the best offensive center the Mavs have ever had. Collison is quick and distributes the ball relatively well. What they bought themselves was time. If the don't land a big free agent next year its time to blow it up and go for the lottery. Dirks got about 2 maybe 3 years left in him. And im talking All Star caliber years. Dirks entire game is based on being nonathletic, but he'll always be able to shoot.  Utah & Portland out. And New Orleans shhhhit.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Oct 27, 2012, 07:01 PM
I hate preseason just as much as the next bro, but goddamn Lillard from Portland has looked incredible. And Anthony Davis is something special, especially paired with Eric Gordon. I really think New Orleans can reach about 35 wins at least.

And don't sleep on Utah. I'll give you guys my Portland pick, I was reaching a little on that, but I'm sticking with it. I'm just that low on the Big D. But Utah and Denver are gonna two fun young teams to watch this season.

Honestly though, after the top 3 seeds in each conference, I think there's a huge dropoff. Brooklyn can't play defense, NY is the oldest team ever, Bynum will probably miss half the year for Philly, Memphis might've missed their window sadly (although their frontcourt can still match up against anyone), and the Clippers are a huge question mark. I don't think CP3 even wants to be there, Grant Hill has some nagging injuries again, and they have zero low post defense. Del Negro's probably the first coach to get fired.

What do you Dallas fans think of that? Granted I'm biased because he was a disaster for the Bulls, but I'd be skeptical that a Spurs castoff last week is now starting for me this week. Hopefully Kaman gets back soon.

It feels so weird being a fair weather fan of the Lakers. I'm with you man, I normally do prefer the Clips, but there's just something so interesting about the Lakers that makes me want to watch them whenever they're on tv this year. Being a huge Nash fan doesn't hurt, on top of the fact that I've grown to respect Kobe (probably because of his infatuation with MJ).

You guys have to admit they are probably the best chance at beating the Heat. Unless Boston somehow beats them in the East Finals. So basically you have to ask yourselves - are you that much of a Dwight/Kobe/Lake Show hater to actually root for Lebron/Wade/Heatles?

And that is why I love my Mavs... Obviously Lakers looked like they didn't have their shit together and could obviously make huge improvements and start playing like a super star team, but we (Dallas) didn't look bad at all, especially without Dirk! Looks like we have a lot more speed now and can really get the ball down the court pretty quickly.

But really Lakers were just missing way too many shots... I don't know what their FG % was at the end of the night, but after the 4th quarter, it couldn't have been anything to be proud about...

I love the Mavs, but after watching the preaseason games, too. I think last night's win may have purely just been because of the Lakers not being on key...

^^^ every time the ball was at that end of the court, I just smiled. That was great, even if the Bulls weren't.

Nash'll be fine, I don't what you guys heard. But how about Damian Lillard? Only one game, but damn, I told you guys to watch out for him? He and Davis are my 2 favorites for rookie of the year.

Speaking of Davis, he looked like a beast too. Going up against a legend while doing so. I don't get why you're so excited about the Spurs after that game, they only won by 4 points. I thought the consensus here was that the Hornets are still terrible.

Ok that's a good point, haha.

I now realize I'm stating the obvious when talking about Davis being one of my favorites for RotY. Everyone knows he can play. I just get so excited watching him ball. If Austin Rivers can get a consistent jump shot, and not shoot 10% every game, N.O. can be a lethal 35 win team.

Collison is a beast... when he played in New Orleans i got to see him and he was a major spark off the bench always when he backed up CP .
 shit I thought he was still with Indiana . They are crazy for not trying to keep him.

The NBA has changed so much....dont mean to sound all like an old man meme but it really is a trip to see how much the game has changed.
but Ill always love pro bball ..

I think the Spurs are gonna shock everyone this year and represent the west in the finals. OKC has alot of shit to work out since they let S.B.S( slim black santa) go .Kevin Martin is a good addition but Harden is a beast and a more steady shooter..so they are going to be downgraded on offense from last year.

The Clippers are deep as a harlots puss but not ready.....although Crawford has alot of people on ice skates at the moment and will probably be the 6th man of the year ..but they will have to face the spurs again when it counts.

Lakers are soft as a bug pissing on cotton right now but will strengthen up when it counts...but not make it past the semis.

as far as the east......the way the last 2 games of the ECF went last year ..Ill be sure to have my tinfoil hat on this time and not be suprised.

Lebrons hairline and co. will make a return and prob win this year again with their whining every play ass

they are a deep team and probably the best this year no matter how much I loathe ...

but when it come to people comparing him to Money ( #23)...

Hey man, are you in NOLA? I don't get that whole Eric Gordon situation. Seems like he never bought into the Hornets, and seems to just not want to play. Is he actually hurt?


And what worries me about the Clippers is that deep bench. It's nice that Del Negro has finally learned that using a rotation is nice when it comes to coaching and subbing guys in. There are just so many names at in the backcourt and at SF. Just at SF you have Butler, Odom, Barnes, Hill. All these guys will demand minutes, there's just not enough minutes to go around when Hill and Billups come back. And don't give me this excuse that everyone on LAC is unselfish - we all know guys like CP3 WANT to play 48 minutes a game.

Yea man Im 15 min from the hive . The Picayune says he's saying his knee is hurt and doesn't feel comfortable playing on it right now but the team doctors are saying otherwise ( Even Monty has his doubts to his claims behind close doors sources in the paper say). So yea ....he is being a bitch . He should of said it was his back because millions of people get away with that shit everyday to not work and there is no real way of telling if they're lying.

 I say just trade him for whatever they can get because with his history it wont be long before his knee is really fucked up again .
Its sad also because while i think they will be shite this year record wise , they can get chemistry together and next year can be a good start for the  next few years. So if he does stay healthy it would be a good little addition to the growing talent they have.

Its a trip to me how some of these athletes can complain about not wanting to play for a team that really wants them because of the location. Its not like they have to play in a horrible fucking place no matter where they are in the association.


and I agree with everything about the Clips ( Although Blake looks like hes added a little to his game this year) to much going on with not a bunch of chemistry at work. They will be fun to watch like always though.

Teams can't sleep on the Hornets. I'm telling you guys, they have a chance at 40 wins. Monty seems to be a game-changer coach, like Thibodeau. They've all bought in (well, except Gordon) to his system, and they play hard every night. Hell, they beat surprised my Bulls in Chicago, and that was without Gordon and Davis.

It's early in the season but what a victory the spurs just had. Hopefully they can keep it up...Ginobili worries me.

Wonder if the Lakers owner was high when he made that deal with D'antoni. D'antoni is a good coach but he doesn't know what Defense is and Defense wins championships.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Nov 14, 2012, 02:39 PM
I love Phil, I mean he helped get 6 rings for my city. But he's done. Don't you remember when he left a couple years ago? He seemed to have zero interest in coaching again. And it showed with this Mike Brown firing - he wanted to get ownership shares, not travel on long roadtrips. He's not in the right place.


But all that doesn't even matter now with D'Antoni. Sure, Nash can't play D and Gasol might be a little soft, but you're saying they don't know defense is - they still have the Defensive Player of the Year! Plus Kobe and and Metta! Look who was on his rosters in Denver, Phx, and NY. Those guys had no interest in defense. Then when they got Chandler last year, the Knicks finally played some D under D'Antoni. Sorry to rant, but what I would worry about if I'm a Laker fan is actually the offense. Does Nash still have the legs for the run n gun offense? Do all the other old farts have enough stamina to keep running every night? Can Metta still drain the 3's (cuz he's gonna be jacking em up now)?


sorry to rant.

The Mavs have never gotten the respect I think they deserve, at least when you watch them on TNT and shit.

Even after they won the championship a couple of years ago. Oh what exciting times that was for me!

Lots of troubles in the Lakers bench. Someone said that Dwight and Kobe almost get into a fight.Kobe said that Dwight is too soft and his partners had to stop him from kicking Kobe's ass.Looks like Gasol and Dwight are going to be gone for a couple of weeks.
What a weird night uh? My Spurs against Hornets which is pathetic and OKC lost with Wizards.

They're screwed unless they make a trade, and I doubt that'll happen. We're close to basically making 2 locks at this point though - the Lakers and Mavs (and the T'Wolves too probably) are missing the playoffs this year. And remember when I predicted the Hornets would be around 8th or 9th place?

They may have been broken up a couple years too early, but still if I was Cuban I was probably would've done the same thing. Who knew Kidd would be able to throw up 3's like he is now.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: deftoolsys07 on Jan 08, 2013, 08:48 PM
Chandler was a great asset... Everyone on that '10-'11 team was. What a great year for the Mavs that was. From what I understand Cuban's deal was that he was going to get rid of some players so that not this season (obviously) but maybe next year or two we will be able to get some much better players... We will have to trust his decision. I love Mark as a person and an owner and I'm just going to have faith that he knows what he's doing... And Kidd always was a big 3 shooter, he just had on/off nights. When he was on he was ON, it just wasn't consistent.

Speaking of which, y'all remember this classic game from mentioned playoffs? Mavs swept the Lakers and on the 4th game Terry was dropping 3's like bags of hot shit. I was very happy on this day...

coolest roster I can imagine. Barea, Stevenson, Chandler, Marion, Dirk, Terry, Kidd, Stojakovic... its like for each position they had at least 2 great guys, and now I just wished they had a good starting 5, but not even that is the case. Too bad for Dirk, but the guy got his ring and honestly he's probably not gonna leave the Mavs.

Imagine him playing for another team, humiliating the Mavs in American Airlines Center..

Contract runs out in 2014, I don't see him retiring then if he's healthy and still enjoying the game. In a German interview he said he wants to finish his career in Dallas but wants to reach the playoffs next season, and for that he needs a competitive team.

That's awesome. Nice to see that he has that kind of integrity. It would be weird to see him playing for the lakers in my opinion. But I don't like anything about the lakers in general lol. On another note, glad to see the Nuggets having a pretty good season so far. They beat Golden State which is great. We needed something like that from a Colorado team after the way the cocksucking Broncos embarassed our state yesterday.

that's pretty terrible. What amazes me is that he continued to play 2 overtimes, then did a shootaround the next day, and was gonna start the following day. What a baller. Kind of like how he played after Wade broke his fucking elbow in the playoffs.

But this is the end for Boston right? They kind of have to blow it now I think.

Lakers once again lost and once again Howard injured with 6:47 from the beginning of the game.I wonder when are the Lakers gonna get rid of him,otherwise they are gonna hear "Howard will have shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season". I still remembering ESPN's frontcover "Now this is gonna be fun,Lakeshow is back!" Hahahahaha good one ESPN!

Mike D'Antoni is hilarious, he's turned the team into the laughing stock of the league.

To be fair, things would be completely different if Mike Brown was still coaching. They would've actually been playing defense for the last 2 months instead of the last 2 games. Seriously, if someone can't even lift their arm, why are they playing like 5 days later? And Earl Clark starting over Pau? Really? I hope Pau is the one that gets traded, D'Antoni doesn't deserve him.

Great victory against Nets and most amazing victory tonight against Bulls and without Parker,Duncan and Ginobili ! Khawi Leonard was a beast! Great victory on a difficult court. We still going strong 41-12! :D Also Clippers' victory was great and the dunk of the night was for Griffin with that hand change in the air.

RIP Jerry Buss

Kinda sucks he had to see his team playing so very shitty.Clippers destroyed them on Thursday and I was so happy :) CP3 plans to sign with Clippers again,so many Lakers fans can forget about the duo Howard-CP3-Bryant.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Feb 19, 2013, 03:54 AM
Buss was a great owner. I think he and Reinsdorf (had to look it up today, had no idea he's 77) are the 2 best old school owners in the league. Buss really played a big role creating those Showtime teams, and I loved how Magic (definitely one of my faves) thought of him as a 2nd father. Really emphasized the relationship players used to have with the front office that you don't see anymore, except for some of the good newer owners like Cuban and the guy from the Spurs.

Is Howard going to even stay in LA? This week should be awesome with the trade deadline on Thursday. I can see D12 getting dealt honestly, and who knows what the Hawks and Nets will do. They both seem to want to make some trade for Dwight or someone else.

Bulls-Heat and Clips-Spurs this Thursday, looking forward to watching a lot of hoops in addition to my usual college basketball watching.

Dwight Howard also travelled last night but instead of getting called on that, I think we (Mavs) got a foul...

Refs in pretty much all sports aren't accountable for anything. Unless they actually get caught betting on games. Because there are NBA guys like Ken Mauer and Steve Javie (those are just 2 that I know of) that have been convicted of tax evasion and served time.

How about we do some predictions here though? Here's my shocking/non-homer 1-8 seedings in each conference:
EAST
1. Miami
2. Boston
3. Atlanta
4. Indiana
5. New York (THIS is an old team - even compared to LA)
6. Brooklyn
7. Chicago
8. Milwaukee
WEST
1. OKC
2. San Antonio
3. Lakers
4. Denver
5. Memphis
6. Utah
7. Clippers
8. Portland (I wanted to put New Orleans because I'm all in on Unibrow, but I'm wussing out)
FINALS
Heat over Lakers
Not too bad predictions, but whoo boy, was I wrong with the Lakers... my pick for Utah making the playoffs is sooo close though.

So the Nuggets lie is over uh? Spurs-Warriors on Monday and it is gonna be tough. Brooklyn really wants this series and beat the Bulls at their home, will it happen the same on the OKC-Rockets match? I really hope so because Im tired of watching Durant on the FTs line even if someone looks with anger at him. Very hard fought phase of the playoffs this first one. Can Clippers force a 7th game tomorrow against Memphis? Will Knicks finish Celtics off? I truly hope so.

Post by: black coffee on May 03, 2013, 12:26 PM
Most first round ties are very even and could go the distance.
But vice versa I could also say that aside from the Heat and Spurs, no team has been too convincing in the Playoffs this far.

few examples:

Bulls could have clinched the series at home to go 4:2, they choked. Winner of game 7 has to play a well rested Miami Heat. Now what is going to happen there.

The Knicks also lost their last home game, now a seventh game isn't too unlikely.

Just saying it would've been nice to have at least one team in the Eastern Conference that is able to challenge the Heat in the Playoffs.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on May 03, 2013, 02:08 PM
There is a reason the Bulls "choked". Half their team is injured and the other half has the flu. Unbelievable. The one healthy guy was Boozer and this should have been his game... and he fouled out.

What I find amazing is that they actually had chances to win and Thibodeau actually had them believing they could win. The Bulls really had no business being within 3 points at the end.


Glad the Warriors won though. Kind of a tortured franchise, it's good to see them move on but it should be tough score 130 against the Spurs.

Nobody cares for your division title if you lose in the first round of Playoffs. What a fucking overrated center DeAndre Jordan is, Billups a shadow of his former self, no answers whatsoever against the big guys Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.
These guys are no championship team, Chris Paul knows that and thats why he's gonna leave the Clippers. I heard the Mavericks could need a point guard ;)

Also, is Vinny Del Negro probably the worst coach is the league? What a disaster of the team this turned out to be.

Really interesting offseason ahead of us with D12 and Paul. It's kind of obvious Griffin/Jordan don't get along with Paul, so I really could see him moving on. Dallas could make out like bandits once free agency starts.

As Pop said it last night "We take it game by game, there is no future, no past just this next 4th game" :D Duncan did great on the OTs. I love how Magic Johnson keeps saying that Memphis has "chance". Its all good, these ESPN analysts hate my Spurs but its all good we dont give a shit.

Well at least a Spurs-Heat finals would be more entertaining...

But yea this was similar to the end of the Blackhawks-Wings game on Wednesday with the phantom double penalty. So Hansbrough gets flattened, gets up and take a shove, and does not flop to the ground but stands his ground. This causes him to get a technical. There were some calls that screamed "the fix was in". Still the Pacers back court couldn't hit shit and that was the main reason they lost.

OK!
Here we go again!

Let's see if the refs are ok with actually letting a team compete against the Heat in a fair manner for a decisive  game in a series for the first time since they "won" a championship.

It was awhile ago..but we had a Pistons and Spurs Finals that went to 7..may have been shit ratings but it was good and fair basketball.
GREAT overall series also.

look , I don't hate the Heat and hope they lose, It's just I hear all this talk ( and I know that comes with everything as time moves on) like this team could really hang in the era with the champions I grew up watching... and they can't.
It's sad.

I accept the game for what it is now ...but as each year passes it's getting a lot harder to watch...

especially when it should count.

I want this. I want this.

Game 7 is gonna be amazing. If James keep on doing everything by himself the Pacers have more than a decent shot. On the other hand, if Bosh and Wade decide to wake up...difficulties I foresee. But maybe Hibbert George and Hill have what it takes.

Looks like the white guy from that comedy Malibu's Most Wanted.
I hope Pop is working watching every possible flop that Heat its going to work on. Mostly done by Leflop James. I know Spurs flop,nothing new but at least dont do it in such a dramatic acting way.I mean game 6 between Pacers-Heat, I still cant believe that James sold a foul that was just an inocent touch as shooting foul.
My Spurs of course are the most disrespected champions so I guess the percent of us winning is around 20%? Good thing I dont give a fuck along other fans.
Nothing else matters. Go Spurs Go

Amazing game last night. Great defense from the Spurs -James couldn't do anything during the second half.

Note for Popovich : 3-pointers. Practice. Now.

Green was nailing his 3's, and it wasn't like Miami was hitting all their's either. Spectacular game, nonetheless, but what surprised me was that Miami out rebounded them by 9. That's gotta be a first.

Also, anyone else notice the pumped in music and crowd noise for Miami??? I thought I noticed when watching the last series, but it's just so blatantly obvious there. Especially when they bring out the 7 Nation Army bullshit. The crowd doesn't show up on time, and then their just sitting on their hands, yet I hear this intense and raucous crowd noise. Wtf?

Yeah the second half of the game was really painful to watch...luckily Green was there. The Heat was on fire though; so it's not like themselves were on a bad day either; Wade continued on his game 7-game 1 roll, Chalmers well...19 points... Interesting game by James as well with numerous assists and still offensive highlights. They were extremely agressive and the Spurs just couldn't keep up. Also they definitely should review their defense strategy -please please no more 3-pointers.

Yea. I can accept the outcome of last night though. Series would have been over if 1 set of free throws and 1 big rebound was made by the Spurs before the end of regulation.

Good game overall.

Lebron is a fucking crybaby. I don't see how anyone can respect how this guy goes about how he carries himself on the court. He seems like a cool cat off the court but a "superstar" shouldn't have to make it so obvious that a call was missed like he does after every time he thinks one is. That's why I can't respect this dude or whatever he has done ( or will do ) in the NBA.

I mean, even Jordan used to complain to the refs a lot but he knew how to do it without looking like a fucking 4 year old who got something done to him when nobody was looking. It's halftime and I'm disgusted with this dude and I'm glad someone who usually doesn't react to things made a point to tell him to quit bitching. Good for you Tony Parker.

I mean It's become so routine he even doesn't get back on defense half the time after he cries. PATHETIC. Kobe even learned from Mike how to do it in a subtle way without coming off as a bitch and keep playing regardless.

Tony Parker got the shit fouled out of him twice in the 2nd quarter with no call whatsoever and got up and just kept playing and waited until a dead ball to air out his feelings.

It's sad this dude Lebron gets so much praise . I tried to really respect this dudes game but I can't even TRY anymore.

Yea bro

Has upset as I was at the outcome and how the Heat and their Superstar carry their actions on the court, it was so cool to see that. It gave me gooseflesh to see how they handled that. The Heat did a good job to of showing respect. The only thing "great"  they seemed to do the whole season.

I hope Tim does't call it quits. Man, he has the heart of a fucking champ. 1 MORE TIME!

and yea that ostrich looking taking champagne bottle spray to the face mouthpiece chewing abomination they start as a PF for the Heat should be outta there next season. He fucking didn't contribute shit.

Don't be that guy man. What you said was completely beyond the line.

Your team lost, big deal. It sports man, get over it. And believe me I was completely crushed after game 6 and those goddamn 28seconds, and then here came game 7 and Duncan miss and then I just wanted to kill myself ha ha.

The Spurs played with class, lost with class, they are freakin legends -and I don't care what everybody says about Ginobili, with 18 something points and numerous assists he was there in game 7 when Parker was not.

Even if it bums me to say it the Heat were just better over the end of the series. Better stamina I guess. At the end of the day you just have to recognize talent - James pisses me off when he cries after each small foul, but the dude, is an incredible player. I tend to prefer Wade though, more class I think. Overall the Heat does have a couple of incredible players; combined with a solid bench and physical endurance. They won, they deserved it, end of story.

This being said I'm so glad to see that Duncan will play for another year, and I'm eager to see Parker and Diaw -what talent that guy pulled off during the second part of the series !- play for the french team after a long deserved vacation.

I actually wouldn't go that far. Yeah they won, blah blah.... But the Spurs won 4 games. Blame dumb fucking luck or even a coaching decision, but the Spurs won game 6. If Duncan is out there, Spurs win.

What really aggravates me is that you could say the same for the Pacers/Heat. The Pacers won 4 of 7. If Vogel has Hibbert on the game in Game 1, the Pacers win. That's probably how I'm going to remember these playoffs. The way Miami played, especially with their roster, they had no business even being in the Finals.

I get what you're saying but at the end of the day you have to see the whole picture. Players, strategy, coaching, and luck, which is a part of it. The heat got it all, the Spurs lacked luck for sure on a couple of actions and honestly, what the hell was Green doing on the field for 75% of game 7 ? After the 1st quarter I would have kicked him out. I would have left Diaw on the field all-the-time. Lebron couldn't do shit when he was there. Honestly, bad coaching on the last 2 games, especially the last one. But dude, it's done. Yeah, what if Duncan would've been there at the end of game 6. What if Parker didn't injure his thigh during game 3, what if Ginobili hadn't lost all these balls during game 6, etc, etc.

They are both great teams. I am obviously a Spurs fan, but like I said, you got to recognize talent when you see it. Right nowt he Heat has got plenty, and luck was on their side. That's it.

It was still an amazing series and I'm really glad I slept like 3 hours a night for the last 2 weeks to follow them  :)

After a season that came down to losing with Heat, now I must endure that Spurs are keeping Splitter first than Ginobili? Im boiling in anger. This brazilian asshole did as many mistakes as Manu but Ginobili can back that up with 20 point games even if it is 6 games out of 82. Bullshit decision, to be honest I hope Manu lands on Rockets, Clippers and I dont care if they are my enemy team,I hope he lands on Lakers.There I said. Overpaid decision.

I thought you blamed their loss on Ginobili being an old man and that he was done! Haha. I've heard word that they still probably will resign him, but for cheap. And if he knows what's good for him, his best chance for success is under Pop.

That said, they did overpay Splitter. I think he'll get better (like Asik did over time with the Bulls/Rockets), but to pay like $10 mil a year? A little odd.

So, I don't know if you heard, but Parker, Diaw, De Colo and the rest of the French team won the Euro Championship, and it's a pretty big thing right now over here  :)

Parker was at his best (32 points against Spain people, Euro MVP, enough said) and Diaw was HUGE (on average 10+points per games, rebounds and assists all over the place). De Colo really improved since last year's Olympics and I think these 3 plus the new recruit Belinelli (that guy was amazing and it really sucks he didn't make it til the end with Italy) are gonna kick some ass for the Spurs - Popovich seems pleased about it.

Again, can't wait for the new season to start.

Even if he has to do so, the guy worked out a lot and packed a few extra pounds so he is more built and ready to face those situations. Given he did not lose some agility in the middle, he should be even harder to stop.

So last night was disappointing. I know its preseason and everything, but I would have actually enjoyed to watch the Spurs play . Parker, 0pts in 18mns, evaluation -18 ? I'm a huge fan of the guy, but come on man. De Colo is in trouble as well. On the other hand, Ginobili's game has been reassuring lately.

Can't wait for the Heat-Bulls clash on the 29th.

Post by: Hank on Oct 24, 2013, 11:01 AM
I really think the Bulls have a shot to overtake the Heat this year. If they don't catch the injury wave again and the ref's actually call the games somewhat fair( like they did in the finals) it could happen.

They did pretty good in the playoffs against them despite being obliterated by injuries. So I can only imagine with the experience the remaining guys on the team have from last year and all of them being healthy ...It could happen. Not to mention D. Rose is looking like he has developed a consistent mid range jumper and hasn't lost a step and looks more explosive than ever. I really root for that guy.
Already got my tickets for the Bulls game here vs. the Pelicans.


I also really hope they prove this cornball wrong

dudes a fucking front runner and although I will never deny his greatness, he is the lamest "superstar" that has ever been a part of professional sports.I have no faith in any other team in the east even coming close to beating the Heat though( Brooklyn) besides Chicago.



final note:  Pelicans will be the 6th-8th seed in the west.
 BOOK IT.

good god I hope you're right man. The joke right now around here is that they've basically locked up the pre-season title at least.

Only problem is that they already have some injuries. Noah's got a groin problem (hey just like Jay Cutler!) and according to Thibodeau his conditioning is "terrible". Plus Hinrich has a concussion and is supposed to be out awhile. Definitely need Boozer to continue his scoring like last year, and Jimmy Buckets to continue improving.

Post by: Hank on Oct 28, 2013, 10:45 PM
Noah's 100 it sounds like heading into the season so lets hope he's atleast 65-70 when it starts to count  ;D

Really am excited about this season for some reason. I think this season will be very interesting and one of the best and most competitive we have had in a while.

Yeah that guy must be the only one having ever ejected Tim Duncan off the court...

And I agree the Bulls looked really bad tonight, it was painful to watch them sruggle like that. Defense was a joke as well.

Nice come back though. When they were done by 25 I really thought they would get humiliated, but they eventually still managed to make it a 8 pts game, only too late.

What's taking so long for some teams to start tanking? Makes me happy to see the Atlantic doing so shitty.

Hopefully Minnesota can make a run on OKC, or at least keep up with them in that division. Portland will cool off enough soon, so I don't think they're a problem. But yeah, damn, if Minny is good, I guess that means they ain't trading Love anytime soon...

I hope they don't !  I think them reaching the playoffs seems obvious today (unless they start facing injuries) and I'd really like to see them going as far as possible.

Tonight Wizards against the wolves ! Hope Wall and Beal will show their best, and Nene will definitely have a lot of work in the paint.

So far very interesting season. Very happy for Spurs, though I see Duncan is not having a great shooting at the beginning of the season, I hope he takes the elixir he always does hehehehe. I dont see Manu a lot active either :\ but I see a great improvement of Diaw which is great. I wonder when Josh Howard is gonna come back from D-League. Very happy for Clippers too though kinda sucked they lost when I went to see them last monday against Grizzlies LOL CP3 has 12 games with more than 10 points and assists and passed Magic Johnson's record of 11. Blazers are for real and so far they are doing pretty great too. Poor Knicks and Pacers is legit.

Hey I hate Indiana just as much as anyone, but I respect them now. I like their coach, they got rid Hansbrough, how can you not like Paul George? Yet they are in a shitty state and I hate almost everything about it. But when it comes to the NBA, and Heat-Pacers...Pacers all the way.

They're more legit than the Bulls at this point too.

Yeah I actually like their coach more than the players themselves, although I have respect for David West. But I litterally can't stand George or Hibbert. It's an attitude thing because obviously as players they are beasts.

As for the bulls, let's give them some time. Deng and Boozer (THE man) are already right in there. Hinrich has his moments as well. Noah has been surprisingly bad in scoring which is a disapointment, as for Rose...let's give him some time. He should have kept his mouth shut before the season started though.

Btw I really think Washington can do something this season. I'm seeing them in the playoffs if not in the top 5 (now that the Brooklyn spot just opened up haha).
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Nov 22, 2013, 06:12 PM
The Bulls are my team, so I hope you're right. Sucks that their annual long road trip just started and Butler will miss the whole thing. His absence showed last night. And Deng was bad (he's been really inconsistent so far).

And agreed on Washington. There are so many average teams in the East after the top 3. I thought the Nets and Knicks would easily be up there in the 4-5 range, but it's still early. I also liked Detroit and Cleveland to maybe crack the playoffs, but they've been disappointing too.

Someone's gotta make the playoffs, haha, but so far it ain't pretty after the Pacers-Heat-Bulls. Hey maybe the Bobcats will make it!
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: Gee on Nov 23, 2013, 02:10 PM
Hey maybe the Bobcats will make it!

Ha ha ! Was reading something about them saying that they have one of the best defenses in the league (7th this season), it just that they suck.so.much.offensively. And yeah generally the East level has been much weaker that the West so far :

East: Toronto being ranked 5 (lol) with 46% wins.
West: Minnessota 8 with 57% !

Spurs on a 11-1 ratio. Soon to be 13-1, unless they lose to Cleveland and then the Pelicans ?

Very bad night for the knees in the NBA. Really hoping Rose will be ok.

I jumped through the roof when I saw this, RIP Humphries. What bestial dunk.
Spurs doing their thing and buried Mavs without Manu that was out, I gotta say the night before we were sloppy and almost lost it.
Today good win for the Knicks against Stern's favorite team the Heat and also Bledsoe is gonna have Knee surgery out indefinitely what a bad blowout for the Suns.
I hope Nuggets win tonight OKC, but as Im watching iI dont think they will because every fucking time Durant looks at the refs is a FTs. SMH

Griffin was not starting stuff, Dalembert and that sore loser Carter were trying to get him going. That is the new game of many teams, try to get Griffin Tech 2 fouls and out.

I think the bulls will make it to the East finals and take the Heat to 7. And Its going to be pretty hard for the Heat wade just isn't going to make it and Lebron can't carry a team through the finals. The nets and bulls will take them to 7. As for the West it's going to be the Thunder and Spurs in the west finals. I just don't think anyone can stop those two. Its going to be a pretty great playoffs the easts top two look pretty vulnerable. Indiana Won't beat the bull in a 7 game series they just want it more.

Kawhi, Marco, Patty, let's see what you got.

I dont think so, especially with the monster game Aldridge had tonight with 46 Points and 18 Rebounds which is crazy! O_o! Close calls for my Spurs, today the bench was really awful and they better do their roles next game because they cant keep relaying on Manu, TD and TP9. They better wake the fuck up. On the other hand, Clippers were fucked because of the refs that gave crazy calls on everyone on the team but mostly on Blake that had 3 fouls on the first half. Tomorrow Clippers must focus and get the win, otherwise they would be on a very deep hole of 2 down. The Bulls played with great intensity but Nene was unstoppable for Wizards.

Its been a pretty great playoff's so far. Every series but the Bulls ( wtf happend to these dudes) and the bobcats but they were never going to beat the Heat I don't care who your owner is. And how about Lebron staring down MJ during that. disrespectful? Maybe but, MJ was never really a nice dude Yea, he may head down to Toon town and rock the Monstars but, he was never very well liked by the people he played against. They respected him for just being better than every one else but, they didn't have to like him. Lebron is the greatest player of this generation Well Kevin Durant is OK too. But you don't have to like him. I don't personally like the heat or the whole The Decision deal. But if he some how came to the mavs I would jump for pure fuckin joy. But any is been a great start to the playoffs. And look like its only going to get better.

yeah that game 5 was absolutely brutal. The West Finals should be a really good series, though. Is it a rematch of 2 years ago? Damn that's at least 3 years in a row for the Spurs in the West finals.

No Ibaka for OKC. Is it really a good news ? I'm not sure. KD and WB are gonna get mental. I'm expecting them to take a combined 70 shots per game.

Yes there is a way of my Spurs dont winning and that is the refs and the league wanting OKC-Heat Part 2.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/34oeebs.jpg)

I know Spurs played like shit tonight, but also these referees are complete shit. I think that is all for a no dunk, no highlights team which blows. Incredible how Pacers are done before their time.
The NBA has polished the way to the finals for OKC first by fucking Grizzlies, mostly leaving Randolph out of game 7. Then they fucked Clippers on the vital game 5 and now it is turn of the Spurs. This is completely rigged and this fucking league dont deserve more of my time and money. Thats it rant over.

Wow lots of love for my Spurs :D glad to see that! I hope it goes better than last year, I gotta say Im scared of the second round because we got either Rockets or Blazers so we will see. Also I hope Clippers go far too :D I cant wait to be cooking a nice BBQ and watching the playoffs.

sounds cute dude! Can I come over and help cheer?

Good Spurs victory but not the best way to open the season. Cuban's face must have been hilarious while the 5th banner was being shown.
Looks like the Lakers still on the bad luck era and still the bad blood between Kobe and Howard.

Mavs are going to be dangerous. Once this team starts clicking it's going to be a scoring machine. And Parsons dunk face on RD nice.

Can't blame him for wanting the money, but damn, yeah the Bulls just bludgeoned them. That was incredible. And it was without Jimmy Buckets.

Jimmy Butler, Reggie Jackson and Khawi Leonard looking forward to Free Agency next July 2015. Rose once again injured but looks like he is going to be fine. Lakers coach still cocky yet he is 0-3 LOL.

$purs picked apart every single thing wrong with sports last June.
I could care less for the foreseeable future ..but I do hope Rose stays not breaking something on his person the rest of his career .

I saw Anthony Davis in a Harahan, LA Wal-Mart walking with 2 beautiful ones while giving zero fucks while walking through the crowd while most people didn't notice a giant but being humble with the people that did.

much success wished and GET THAT TEAM ATLEAST THE 8th SPOT  ;)

Nice to see Raptors on top of the East, they showed they were coming around last season. Knicks still in problems, I wonder why they dont get rid of that Bargnani dude. Lakers 1-7, Spurs slow beginning but nice B2B victories against 2 tough teams. Looks like Spurs are gonna pick up Marc Gasol from Memphis next season and that is very good!
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Nov 14, 2014, 05:51 AM
Bulls beat the Toronto Drakes tonight tho... but Rose couldn't finish the game. Fuck. At least Pau is looking like he did in his Laker years.

And speaking of Gasol's, easy on the Spurs getting Marc next year. One thing at a time, and Memphis be looking gooooood so far.

Man my Spurs are playing like shit the last 2 weeks :/ Leonard out with torn ligament in the hand and OT X 3 and all losses. If this keeps going the chances of defending the title are going to the toilet. Better wake up and hopefully get some help, also when Pelicans' Davis contract is over? I ask because I see that kid as Duncan's replacement.

So once again a blow for the Bulls with Rose having yet another surgery. Did anyone see the Hawks number 1 in the East? Great job by Popovich's former assistant coach! :D

So in the East finals we got Hawks-Cavs
In the West still undecided, I still cant believe how Clippers let that game 6 slipped in such a dumb way, now game 7 tomorrow. Warriors just waiting.

I'm starting to believe the Clippers are cursed.

The guys lost it on Thursday night after that disastrous game.
Prigioni was the big difference today for the Rockets in a great game to celebrate his birthday.
Oh well, a season to watch it as spectator and not a fan :/ I guess Karma for Clippers SMH

So any of you guys watching the Playoffs?
Once again my Spurs showing amazing display of basketball, especially last night against Rockets without Leonard or Parker (done for season)
Celtics almost had it tonight against Wizards, but they went to a final game 7 this Monday.
Spurs/ Warriors going on Sunday which I hope it turns great for my Spurs team.

Well my Spurs were without Leonard last night and well 0-3, not even worth watching game 4.
Looks like the lowest NBA ratings are set to happen this June.

Oh I think people will watch the finals. I'm excited to see GSW and CLE go at it while both healthy. It's just the lead up to that point is boring as hell. Without Kawhi the Spurs have no chance, and the East, well we all know how shitty the east is. I've never seen so many blowouts in the playoffs.

But hey if there's a week of no basketball between the conference finals and finals, well that'll make people lose interest. I know I'm gonna be pissed.
Title: Re: The NBA (basketball) Thread (its faaaaantastic)
Post by: RoyalDeftonicBoy on May 23, 2017, 06:57 AM
And well that's all :/ Same boring finals going on collision course.
I hope this was not Manu Ginobili's last game :( He did an amazing job as a player and representing my second country Argentina on a great way. If Parker and Leonard wouldn't got injured we'd have swept the floor with those piece of shit Warriors and for sure win the Championship. Go Spurs Go!
Time to get rid of Aldridge, someone who I was waiting a lot more. Paul George, Cousins would be a great addition to my team. Go Spurs Go! :/ :(
