Atlanta 87, Indiana 85

And related to the article. I consider myself a true Pacers fan and watch nearly every game they play, but I agree it is very frustrating to watch a team with so mcuh talent take games off like that. I wouldnt go as far as saying I won't watch another game until the playoffs but the thought crosses my mind everytime they do this.

I don't think this line of reasoning really sticks. I mean, Nowitzki, Howard, Daniels, and Finley didn't have a "noticeable drop" in offense, their defense did pick up however, but that may be more attributable to Avery Johnson's emphasis on Defense vs. Nellie's total lack of, or it could be that Nash was a sieve. Yes, that is still 4 offensive threats that must be guarded. Joe Johnson wouldnt have that in Atlanta.

Im not convinced that Joe Johnson is as good as he looked last year. His 17 points per game came on a team where he could score so many points in a game off of fast breaks. The real question is how many points can Joe Johnson score on a team without Steve Nash to pass the ball, and without Amare Stoudemire and Shawn Marion to take defensive pressure of him.

Kenny Rogers is free to pitch again.

i still find it funny though that even with the arbitrator reducing his days off, his consequence is still more severe than the players caught on steroids. You could even make the case that the media made him look worse than someone on steroids. Just saying...

What happens when NBA GMs play fantasy basketball?

I started to read this trade rundown the other day and i thought to myself "Whatever. I'll figure out who went where once the season starts."

Toss Out All The Hall Of Shamers

Now if they knowingly used them while the rules were in force then by all means punish them . So is that sending the message that as long as there's a loophole it's ok to cheat? I've already talked about this before but for a player like palmeiro who was around during the steroid era, you should, for lack of a better word, "grandfather" him in voting wise. Just look at how many people were probably using steroids while he played. Opposing pitchers, teammates, and so forth.

Palmiero busted?

correction: i didnt necessarily mean anyone whos already in it. mostly the people who we suspect used steroids, never got caught, and will make it.

Palmiero busted?

I look at it this way, there are people like Mark McGwire who, although was never caught, probably took steroids and will make it into the HOF. The true question is how many future HOF'ers and players already in the hall used steroids. I dont see it as a reason for him to not make it into the hall. He should almost be grandfathered in because he played in an era where it isnt fair to exclude him from the hall of fame for steroids because so many used them. You can ask how many homers would he have hit without them and I ask how many more could he have hit if he hadnt played against pitchers on steroids.

Hunter's battiness breaks the ice.

"Does my penis look abnormal? I mean, I know it's abnormally large," Now that is a great pick up line.

I think he speaks for more than the Australian nation on that one. Lauren Jackson is the best product to come from Australia since...well ever.

If you got thos two on a team together and LeBron learned to penetrate and kick out...That's scary.

I wander how people would have reacted if LeBron had started dissing (random player)... DeShawn Stevenson because he would be the better High School product.

This is a grind it out, walk it up team. Warrick needed a team that has a transition game. good point. i guess it boils down to me being a syracuse fan too. Granger probably is the better pick but i wanted Warrick for sentimental purposes. Chmurray, pleases dont mention the ppossibility of anyone turning out like Jonathan Bender. The oft-injured one causes me great distress.

Stoudemire's a headcase though. Hes a great shooter but hes been known to leave the practice court early when hes upset.

posted by rockin_the_suburbs at 11:09 PM on June 28, 2005


I love the Pacers but I'm still not so sure of Danny Granger getting picked over Hakim Warrick. I like them both though.

Sleeping through the 2005 NBA Draft

I wish someone would tell me why so many mock drafts have Sean May going somewhere between 11th-17th picks in the draft. I know hes undersized but you can't overlook how well he played.

Sleeping through the 2005 NBA Draft

Earl Watson seems like a good fit, but would he leave Memphis. Eisley and Stoudamire could be solid starters the rest of the list is pretty iffy. im no expert but Brevin Knights numbers of 10 pts, 9 ast, 2 stl per game last year seem pretty solid to me. I think he would be a good pick up.
