Dr. Jerry Buss is the most brilliant owner in basketball. Before him, there were no cheerleaders, no celebs at games, no showtime! Buss transformed the NBA, not Mark Cuban..no matter how many free tacos he gives away!
what a crock of crap! Mark retired BEFORE the rules changed! How can they keep him off the ballot if THE WRITERS follow the rules too? These same idiot baseball writing hacks,(who KNEW that Mark and Sammy were on steroids) were HAPPY to glorify these guys for saving the game back in the late 90's, but now are condemning them for not playing the game pure? Gimme a break! If you want to get all moral about it, most of the guys in the HOFame, are guilty of all kinds of crap from adultery to wife-beating to gambling to playing dirty(ty cobb) yet there they are in the Hall of Shame! It reeks of hypocrisy. Writers should be consistent and apply the same rule of law to players as we do in public life. Mark played the game PURE for 10 solid years, putting up good numbers and probably would of gotten in had he never done steroids, and maybe played a few more seasons as the training and extra weight he carried wore out his knees. But to be such hypocrites as these writers are and to keep out McGwire is a shame in itself greater than the steroid era.

it was a bitch slap, not a closed-fist punch. That is why it sounded loud. Collins fell backwards because he was being pulled and there was someone on the floor behind him. He got up faster than Ali when he got clocked by Frazier! And then MarshMelo runs away and was saved from a real fight when Collins was held back right before getting to Marshmelo!

I totally agree that Melo completely embarrassed himself by throwing a punch (that looked more like a slap) and then running away. But, the guy he hit certainly didn't help his masculinity after the way he collapsed. watch the video! The guy he hit was being pulled back by one of the suits and actually tripped over someone on the floor behind him! He IMMEDIATELY GOT UP! That punch must of really done alot of damage eh? Melo is the pusss...hit and run..the damage done to his reputation is far worse than a fine or missed games. See if his jersey sales go up..i doubt it.

I grew up in Miami and followed the team from its pathetic teams of the 1970's thru all the glory years of the past 20 since that great game against Nebraska when they won thier first national championship in 1983. What people don't know is that the U of Miami is a great academic school that is actually very hard to get into. The football players they recruit for the most part couldn't get into the school as students. They have to be on scholarship or they wouldnt step foot into the doors of UM! The players are thugs for the most part because most of them come from the mean streets of Miami like Liberty City and Carol City...bad places and high schools that are 100% black. Those places breed bad human beings and they only get recruited because of thier speed and size. What do you expect from these kinds of players? Violence. Plain and simple. You don't see crap like this happening at Notre Dame or Penn State. Miami is a cesspool and they need to clean up the recruiting process that brings in these kinds of thugs. Oh, I forgot..it's all about winning even if it means people think badly about you school. Too bad because a degree from Miami is actually very difficult to obtain.

posted by bluekarma at 11:03 AM on April 13
bkdet you are a fool. All round talent??? Lebron??? He plays weak defense. He doesn't play the other teams best players! Kobe will aways guard the other teams best player(usually a guard) even when he is much smaller! Remember how he took on AI? And Lebron plays in the weak Eastern Conference, along with Billups! Yea, don't forget that the West is still the harder Conference to win in.
posted by bluekarma at 11:01 AM on April 13
you all are so wrong. You and I know that Kobe is the MVP. And I have FACTS to back it up, you just have emotion and popularity to go with your selections. First off, Kobe basically is playing with BENCH players! Other than Lamar Odom, NO ONE on the Lakers is a starter! All these other candidates have bonafied starters and Detroit in itself is an ALL-STAR team! How hard is it to look good when you have Ben Wallace and Co. on the floor with you??? And as for the others like Steve Nash? He has some pretty decent players too. The lakers have a complex system known as the Triangle. It has taken the team all season to learn it and now you see the results are starting to happen. They have won 8 of 11 games and are peaking at the right time. I doubt they get far in the Playoffs. They still have limitied talent and really need a player or two like these other teams, for them to reach the championship. But the main reason Kobe should get it is he plays BOTH ENDS of the floor. He guards the other teams BEST player. Nash and Lebron and Dirk DO NOT! Nash and Dirk are not good defensive players at all. Just bodies. What Kobe has done offensively to keep his team afloat in the playoff hunt, until his team got the triangle is amazing. not just amazing, it hasnt been done since the days of Jordan and his 81 point game is one for the ages. He carried this team on it's back because no one elese could make shots! Now that the team has begun to show life, Kobe has become the TEAM PLAYER everyone says he is not. Jordan was the SAME way until about 1990. It is sickening how you all make this a popularity contest. If that rape charge had never happened, or Shaq had not left, I dare say you all would be singing Kobe's praises. The guy deserves it. There is no better clutch player in the game. No better 4th quarter guy. Kobe has made more important shots and kept his team in games more than anyone! Lebron doesnt want the ball at the end of games and neither does Elton Brand. All of these other nominees have good players around them. I would say if the Lakers add someone like a Kevin Garnett( free agent this coming year and he bought a home here in LA recently), The Lakers will be a threat next year. Kobe is the best and deserves the MVP.

it would be nice to see a real challenger to Tiger BUT it isn't going to happen! This Columbian is just the latest in the pretenders brigade! One hit wonders! The reason is simple. Just like Michael in Basketball, Gretzky in Hockey and Federer in Tennis, the guy has TOO MUCH TALENT! Tiger has shots in his bag that other golfers have not even imagined trying, yet he never is unable to pull of the seeming impossible! Other golfers work on hitting it straight, yet Tiger works on hitting it all kinds of angles and trajectories. His work ethic and his devotion to perfection are unmatched! The other golfers may win now and again, and so will this Vilega kid, but over the long haul, when things are not the norm, they will faulter. Not Tiger. He has won every major at every venue imaginable! He is by far the most talented golfer ever. Even Jack Nicklaus stated a few years back that "Tiger plays a game of which i am not familiar". That is like Jesus Christ himself saying that some preacher is better at spreading Gods word than himself! Enjoy the man while he is in his prime. He will obliterate every record in golf and no one will come along in a 100 years to break them. Good points were made here in previous post about Tiger having no consistent challengers. Trust me, Tiger would love a Jack vs. Tom Watson rivalry but it isnt going to happen. His dominance is too great. His mind and will are too fierce. Tiger loves competition. Look how dissapointed he was when John Daly(the peoples champ) missed the gimme recently. He WANTED the game to go on, but Daly lost his composure(Tigers fault?) and the match was over. That is greatness! That is Tiger.

Kobe is looking to fall into the trap of many talented players, and not realize what the Jordans- yes Jonson, Jordan did make his teammates better RU freaking kidding me..us??? Jordan did NOT make his teammates better until he got some BETTER teammates! How can you make marginal players better? If you can't hit a shot, you can't hit a shot!!! When Jordoan got Pippen and Kerr and Paxson and Rodman..he started to win titles but that is NOT because he made those palyers better because in fact they were already really good players! People seem to forget that Kobe isnt playing with very good players right now. Lamar Odom is decent but a headcase. How stupid and naive for some people suggest that Kobe doesnt make the other players around him better! He can't will the ball into the basket for someone else! Get a clue! Jordan won nothing until he got a good supporting cast around him. Kobe is a very talented and smart player but he is working with mostly stiffs!
posted by bluekarma at 12:33 AM on January 23
all I see is Kobe haters. LeBron, the best??? He hasn't won anything yet! He has a slightly better record at this moment? Big freaking deal! He may never win a title either! BUt that doesn't mean he can't try to be the best palyer he can be. Kobe isn't a facilitator like Magic or Larry Bird. He is a scoring machine and he also plays pretty good defense. Kobe had to live ithe shadow of Shaq(who also will not win another title mostl likely!), and when Shaq got all the credit, it wasn't right. Kobe deserves the right to do great things. Yea, it's a team game, but sometimes when you have the mojo going, you let it go for all it's worth. Kobe put on a show no one will forget. Did they call Wilt selfish when he dropped 100????? Or when Elgin dropped 71??? I doubt it. This Laker team isn't good enough to win a title. But the Staples Center seel out every game and the fans love their #8. It's entertainment. Bash away, I still admire Kobe. Many hated MJ too. I doubt any of you bashers has the skill to do anything athletic! Probably bowlers or golfers! LMAo!

This game was for Kobe and the Fans! When Kobe scored 62 last month against Dallas, he sat out the entire 4th and all anyone could ask was why he didnt play and what he could of scored if he had! Well, that game was a blowout, but this one tonight was not! So when Kobe passed his own record, you can bet that the fans and everyone else WANTED to see what he could do. No one could stop him on Toronto. And we saw that what Kobe can do is the best anyone could ever do. LeBron will NEVER see a game like this unless it is in a blowout or triple OT!. Kobe did this when his team needed him and once he passed the Laker record all everyone in Staples Center wanted to see is him get 80. They deserved it, Kobe deserved the chance and so did the Laker organization! It was entertainment and that is what this game is about. Otherwise no one would even bother to show up for losing teams games. People want a show. They got one!

and one other thing..look at all these problems listed below by rogerd.. Players who contract AIDS while screwing thousands of women: role models. * Players who screw around on their wives, visit strip bars, fuck fans, et al: role models. * Players who have drug problems: role models until it impairs their on-court performance. * Players who get huled up on rape charges: role models. * Players who are concerned for the welfare of their families: suspend 'em! Count how many instances we know of where a caucasian is guilty of any of it. Go ahead..you might count one or two, but the numbers of blacks you can count is 10 times as many. I am just saying that WHY IS THAT??????? Education? Media explotation of bad role models like AI, Shawn Kemp, T.O., artest, Magic, Dennis Rodman,..ect..ect... and why is it racist to point out a problem Brownbat??? You are so PC and liberal, you can't see the truth?? If i say there was a brawl in the stands at a NBA game involving a player, to someone in the streets and I said guess if they were a a black or white...guess?

Why is that the black players always have to react to EVERYTHING with violence or the threat of violence??? Davis went up there to intimidate someone and maybe hurt someone(who knows) and it could of started a brawl. He should be suspended for 10 games. When players leave the bench, they can be ejected and fined. In MLB, if players go in the stands for anything, they get suspended and fined. Note: never see any caucasian players going in the stands, do you?

like who cares? Vince is just another one of those running back QB's who thinks run first then pass. He will never lead a pro team to victory in the Super Bowl. We already have several QB's like him in the NFL( Culpepper, Vick) who have failed to succeed at the highest level. These guys just end up hurt most the time because when you play the pro game, getting whacked by guys who are bigger and waaaaaay stronger than college boys, you don't get back up so quick and often end up on the IR! Texas won that game on the stupidity of the officials and the inabilty of USC to stop Young those final 2 drives. Defense wins championships. But I still think Young will be an attraction for some loosing team. May sell some tickets but that is it. He ain't no Marino or Elway or Manning.

And that has absolutely nothing to do with their ability to be commentators during a baseball game. Ernie Harwell and Vin Scully have a grand total of zero games of MLB playing experience, and they are/were excellent commentators. Dan Shulman has never played in a MLB game and he's a better choice than McCarver or Morgan. Buck Martinez can't hold a candle to Morgan or McCarver in terms of MLB career accomplishments, but he's a hell of a better person to have talk about the goings-on during a baseball game. another moronic statement where the response completely MISSES THE POINT! Morgan and McCarver were PLAYERS and are now COLOR COMMENTATORS!!! That means, they are there to give INSIGHT to what and why what happens on the field of play! Scully and Buck are PLAY by PLAY analyst..they desribe the actual events taking place on the field. Now go back(grum@work) and read the original post and see how you missed the point!

Well, it ain't steroids! Actually, I am 6'1, 190..not nearly as big as many of the guys who hit it long. My driver is a 47" Alpha with 6 degrees loft and a Harrison 2.5 shaft. My driver isn't as long, so it isn't that either. I think it really has to do with club head speed and spin. If your ball is spinning less, it will travel farther, especially into the wind. I also throw my right side hard into the ball at impact. It doesn't appear I am killing it, but the clubhead is moving around 125. There are guys with speeds over 150, but because of spin, they lose distance. That is how I qualified recently. What is fun is on most long par 5's(500+yards), I am sitting well under 200 yards on my second shot and usually am hitting a 7-8-9 iron onto the green and putting for eagles. And I actually just learned to properly swing about a month ago, and I already had the club speed, but now I hit all my shots with exactly the same swing, even my wedges. And the old fillipino guy who showed me, can't hit the ball a 100 yards! I was actually bored with golfing on the course and was only hitting at the range but now I am excitied about playing and feel that now I can go from a 7-8 handicapp down to 1-2 in short order!

I have been going thru the qualifying rounds of the Remax Long Drive Contest for this coming November and the 100K first prize and I will tell you that most of the guys who win the District events have been in the 350-370 yard range. Some of the balls have gone further but they have to fall within a 30 yard wide grid. I won my senior division(45-54) with a shot of 351. If there had been water and mist and wind swirling above the fairway, I doubt it would of gone 350!

Hands down, the finest voice ever to announce baseball on the radio has got to be Vin Scully of the LA Dodgers. He is even recognized as such by other legendary announcers. He talks at the tempo the game is played. He paints a landscape of the field and the players on it. He tells you every move the pitcher or batter is making without being simplistic or repetitive. Much like his late counterpart, Chick Hearn of the LA Lakers, Vin is an artist who paints the game into your mind almost as if you were there in person. I am glad that over the past 15 years I have lived in SoCal, that I have gotten to listen to Vin(and Chick before his untimely death in 2003), and know a bad annoucer when I hear one(which is just about all of them)! Charlie Steiner of the Dodgers actually has a decent announcers voice but not the imagination of a Vin Scully.

Vladimir Guerro is the best player in the game and the biggest threat at the plate and he is followed by another steady longballer in Garrett Anderson. Couple that with speed from Figgins and Erstad, and who can beat then 4 out of 7 games in the playoffs? Who, I ask?

I remember Stram as the coach of the great KC teams from the AFL days, when they had epic battles with the Raiders. I lived and died as a kid pulling for the Chiefs. And I remeber Hank stalking the sidelines and exhorting his team or berating the refs. He was one of the best and his Super Bowl 4 win was truly deserved. That teams with Lenny Dawson, Otis Taylor, Buch Buchanan, Bobby Bell, Mike Garrett, Ernie Ladd..was probably one of the finest ever put on the field. Hank was a guy who told it like it was. He never held back and that is what is sorely missing in todays broadcasting. Madden has some of it but he has softened in recent years. RIP Hank.

something tells me this kid is the real deal. He has way more skill than Shawn bradley did at 17. He also is filled out and stronger. plus he will be getting better coaching. I think the Lakers should bring in Kareem as a coach to tutor the kid. And there has been a 100 high-schoolers come out and only a few made it(big) but none 7' tall! you can't let an oppurtunity like this walk away. The Lakers have the talent and the resources to turn this kid into a good, maybe great player. I just worry about all the distractions of living in Los Angeles. The clubs, the parties, the celebs, the media..ect
