Kobe is going to lose the only fans that appreciate his talent. He is right though, the Lakers haven't been shit since Jerry West left. Fuck Shaq. Also, it's obvious that it wasn't directly Kobe's fault that Shaq was traded, but indirectly it was. By him shopping around for a new team, instead of signing with LA in the first place, he put Management in a position that they couldn't afford to give both of them long-term deals. So they decided it was better to keep the guy that was just reaching his prime instead of the guy that was well past his. There is no way in hell that the Lakers will get fair trade value. I was thinking that someone would have to trade their #1 or #2 pick but then again, I doubt the Lakers would trade Kobe to a Western Conference opponent, and definately not one in the same division. I wouldn't be too sad if we got the #2 pick, Rashard Lewis and Luke Ridinour for Kobe. Nowitzki is good but he ain't 1/2 the man Kobe is (on the court). It would have to be Nowitzki and Terry. This shit is killing me to even have to think about...

You as the driver of a car, have a responsibility to make your children ride in an approved car seat, or wear seat belts. That's because they're children. Grownups like the woman passenger can put on their PFDs by themselves. i don't know what state you live in, but in CA the driver of the vehicle gets a ticket if ANYONE in the car doesn't have their seatbelt on. Therefore it is the DRIVER'S responsibility to make sure that everyone is safe, adult or child.

Question: what do you think is appropriate for her to do at this point? Buy a gun and wait in the living room with the front door unlocked, ready to shoot the first asshole that walks through the door... Oh wait, that's what I would do. She can't do anything about it. She's 18, she's pretty, and people want to look at her pictures. It's no different than seeing Paris Hilton and all those other Hollywood types on every damn magazine at the grocery store. How come no one is worried about her safety? I don't see her cruising with body guards or security and she is 1000X more famous than this track girl and everyone has seen her NAKED performing sexual acts in front of a camera (with pretty good skills I might add). I really don't see the big freakin deal about this story. It's not the first time someone has found a girl to be pretty and passed her picture on to someone. It just so happens that this one made it to the internet. It's the world we live in.

Please remember that as we work and hunt, it is also our God Given Right as Christians to hunt for the lost souls about us. You do not need a license and you can hunt in any state or country. Those lost souls will truly be our greatest trophies in the end. Isn't there a movie based on this story?? Help me out here. I can't find the name of this damn movie and it is killing me. Here's a brief summary: The Dad thinks he hears from God and can see which people are evil and which are not. "God" delivers an axe and some other murder weapons to the guy's farm and he has his two sons help him kill "evil" people. One son starts to feel like something is wrong, the other son kills him.

In other sports the worse teams do have the ability to tank a few games, but .500 teams are out of the running for the top pick. I wouldn't mind having the bottom 4 or 5 teams involved in lottery, just not ones that almost make the playoffs. That kind of makes sense. I'll give you that. However whats to stop the bottom 4-5 teams from tanking? Also, why would you care about the lottery if you had a chance to make the playoffs? I'm convinced that the "tanking" problem is impossible to fix.

posted by yay-yo at 04:15 PM on May 25
It doesn't stop teams from tanking, and often rewards teams that were almost .500 on the season while penalizing others that were far worse. That statement is a contradiction. Teams who played just under .500 would be the ones who didn't tank. There are too many issues present to create a perfect system for the draft unless you do it completely randomly. Otherwise if the teams who lose the most always get the highest chance to win, tanking is inevitable.

What happened to LeBron at half-time? He left his game in the locker-room. The Cavs can't win unless LeBron decides that he's going to be the best player on the court. This series it's been Rasheed Wallace. The Pistons main problem has been Prince. He has only made 1 shot in the first two games. His defense on LeBron has been amazing, but he needs to find a way to chip in on the offensive end. Right now we are seeing just how good the Cavs supporting cast is. I do have to give the Cavs some credit for their defense. They have been shutting down the Pistons as well. Two games with neither team breaking 80? What is up with that? Assuming the Spurs continue to dominate Utah, they will WALK through the Finals.

If Danny had the audacity to try and deal for Jason Kidd he would probably have to deal the #5 pick I don't see Jason Kidd willingly going to Boston. He wants to win, now. He's tired of just making the playoffs, so I doubt he would want to take 3-4 steps backward.

Why can't I include Shaq? Because Shaq is an exception to the rule. His sheer size made it possible for him to back people down and go THROUGH double teams. Oden will NEVER be as big or as strong as Shaq.
posted by yay-yo at 02:09 PM on May 24
I don't think he needs an outside shot - loads of HoF centres didn't shoot from outside 10 feet. He is strong enough to work his way through most of the centres in the league already. Give him a couple years and he'll get through all of them - but he's quick. Very quick for a seven footer. Can you name one HoF center who has played in the last 15 years (not including Shaq) who couldn't make an outside shot? Here's a few that could: Hakeem Ewing Robinson Duncan

That goal would not have been possible before they changed the ball. It was like we saw in the World Cup with kicks making strange turns and bends. He just hit it right of center like a pool shark (only not on purpose) and bent it around the near post. It's kind of like Gretzky with the "impossible angle" goal.

The Celtics can hope to get the next Chinese giant. The guy seems to have a pretty good all-around game to go with his height. He could stand to gain a few pounds, but so could everyone else who is comingout of the draft.

I see a lot of arguments about how overrated Oden is, but little in response? Pros and cons? Anyone? No shot from outside 10 ft. (free throws are from 15') Not strong enough to work his way inside on an NBA center. Good shot blocking ability. Foul Prone. But he does have a pretty good personality...

And yerfatma, given the choice, I'd jettison Ainge and keep Doc. No coach is good enough to win without talent. Therefore it is unfair to judge Doc's performance over the past few years. If he actually had a team with competent players, and still lost, show him the door. But he's had 3 years going on 4, and I seriously have no idea what his blueprint is for this franchise. My sentiments exactly...

The difference? Paxson and co. made it, so Jordan's reputation as a clutch player remains intact, while Lebron's "killer instinct" is being called into question. I can guarantee that Jordan had more than 10 points in the game. And he didn't pass on a wide open lay-up either. but that he doesn't have Paxson or to use a current name, Robert Horry on his team. LeBron's teammates are the only reason they even had a chance in that game. The questions about his killer instinct are not just based on one game. It also happened MULTIPLE times against the Nets. He seems to have taken a step back from his performance in last years playoffs. He wasn't afraid to take the last shot, but know he seems to be. I love LeBron's game, he is one of the best 3 players in the league, no doubt. He just needs to have the courage (there you go LBB) to either make or miss the shot and deal with the consequences.

I assume you all get a hair across your ass during September Call Ups in baseball when the second division teams aren't trying to win because they're working in rookies. Or maybe during the last weeks of the NFL season when playoff teams don't try to win when there are no playoff spots to move up. Those two situations are not even remotely similiar to "tanking" games to try to win the Draft lottery. If the Celtics were 20 games ahead with 10 to play, sitting Paul Pierce to avoid injury would make sense. The guy had a whole summer to recover from his "ailments" whatever they may be. I guess it makes it hard to beleive when you see Dwayne Wade and Lamar Odom getting surgery done, AFTER giving their all in the playoffs. If Pierce was really hurt, why wasn't he getting any surgeries performed so that he could get a head start on his rehab? The C's got what they deserved for throwing in the towel too early. but Oden is a franchise centre. How does everyone think that Oden is going to be this great center when he wasn't even close to dominant in college? The guys he is being compared to were MONSTERS in college (Shaq, Duncan, Robinson etc...). I'm not saying that he sucks or won't be a decent player, but I just don't see the "dominant big man" tag working on this dude. I would pick Durant over Oden any day of the week.

the Lakers will be worst than the Celtics in less than 2 years. He will try to give the farm away for someone that won't be able to help anybody win. That's not possible as long as they have #24... If they lose Kobe because of the front office's stupidity, you may be right.
posted by yay-yo at 10:13 AM on May 23
What will the Blazers do with LeMarcus Aldridge if they draft Oden? I think Durant would fit in better with the team that they already have. They have Zac Randolph as their low post threat, Brandon Roy hitting mid-range jumpers, and then you throw in a guy like Durant, with Aldridge blocking everything in sight. They could be tough in a couple of years with that team.

The only reason the Cavs were close in that game is because they had 10+ offensive rebounds. That probably won't happen again. Cleveland is overmatched and Detroit has a good gameplan to stop LeBron. Open look (way open) instead of a 1 on 2 low against Prince and 'Sheed? By a guy who's made his living hitting threes? Except when he passed it, he only had 1 guy guarding him (which he had already blew by at the top of the key). Just face it, LeBron doesn't have the killer instinct yet. He showed he didn't have it against the Nets, when he continually had bad 4th quarters, including a TON of missed free-throws. He's young and unsure of himself when the game is on the line. It will all come in time though. It's the type of thing you learn from losing in the playoffs. I just can't see Utah beating the Spurs. I can't see anyone beating the Spurs. Game 2 wasn't even a contest. I'll second that...

What went wrong with LeBron? The Pistons had him hog-tied for the whole game but couldn't pull away. 9 assists and 10 rebounds are not bad, but 10 points? Ouch! He's lucky that he's not someone else or he could be accused of "giving up", with his 3 shot attempts in the 4th quarter.

One other thought: I can't help but wonder if baseball is actively trying to kill the stolen base. Throwing over to first slows the game down. A lot. I see where you're coming from. I'm not quite ready to call it a conspiracy, but the league is always trying to make the game move along faster.

So he gets remembered for the times he hits them but overlooked when he doesn't. You aint' right! Of course he has missed some shots, who hasn't? The fact is that he has made more crucial three's in the finals seconds of PLAYOFF games than anyone that is currently in the league. He did it as a Rocket, he did it as a Laker, and he has done it as a Spur. Also, when he was on the Rockets, he wasn't exactly an "off-the-bench player" as you so fondly refer to him. Another point is that no one remembers who came in 2nd (or the loser) they only remember the winners.

Bowen is the best on ball (no pun intended) defender in the league. Ginobli is a slasher and spot up shooter, Horry is Big Shot Bob. I could see why you might not like them, but to call them ass clowns is straight up disrespectful. I would take any of them on my favorite team in a second. A lot of you seem to understand that the playoffs are rough, until your favorite team gets beat up. I felt the same way. You might want to wait until the series is over before you start bitching about it. Who knows, your team could suprise you.
