  1. Time To Let Rich Cho Go?

    I have to laugh at the mention of Barnes. I am a huge UNC fan but there is no way I'd take Barnes over a healthy MKG. I also wouldn't take Beal after seeing how MKG looked in the few games he played this season.. And Biz (2011) wasn't even in the same draft as Drummond (2012). Regardless, 8 teams passed on Drummond because he failed to live up to the hype at UCONN. And looked disinterested in basketball at times on the court.
  2. No ALL STAR ?

    I doubt they screw over MJ. They're just trying to earn some easy brownie points. But we'll see.
  3. GTA Vice City

    You could take cabs in GTA IV and just skip the ride. But I always enjoyed driving so I rarely used them. It's pretty much impossible for me to pick a favorite GTA. But I will say that GTA III was the most mind blowing of all the games for its time. When it came out it felt like something truly revolutionary. I remember reading previews for the game in magazines and thinking it probably wouldn't be anything special. A lot of series that had tried to jump from 2D to 3D didn't fair well.
  4. Kemba the Super-Star?

    Put up 35, 7 & 7 against New Orleans tonight. Call him whatever you like. The man is on a roll this season.
  5. Hornets Are Trash!

    They're half a game behind the 8th seed despite dealing with more injuries to key players than I can count. This team is now close to full health - just imagine if they had MKG all season - and look like they could have a strong 2nd half. But of course Chuck decides now is a great time to be an attention whore and throw the team under the bus.
  6. Sooooo, Space Jam 2

    You seem to have missed the part where LeBron would kick the ball out to teammates who weren't open with the shot clock running down. In any case LeBron was not there mentally that series. It was clear as day. Go back and watch the way LBJ played against a strong Bull's defense in the 2011 ECF. That's how the best player on the planet is suppose to play when his team is in need. Then LeBron did a complete 180 against the Mavs. He crawled into shell and it cost his team. If LBJ played against the Bull the way he did against Mavs they would not have even made it to the Finals in 2011. He spent large chunks of the 4th quarter standing in the corner like he was Bruce Bowen. But I guess that was his teammates fault... LeBron, Wade, and Bosh carried the offensive load every season while they were together. That's how that team was built. And Chalmers had a nice series against the Mavs. He came up big with some key shots.

    Strong argument. Cuban knows his team won because LeBron was a no show. Making the right play, finding the open player etc is fine when you're a role player or at the very least aggressive in doing so. LeBron isn't a role player and wasn't aggressive at all in that series in 4th quarters. He would often take a couple of dribbles then kick the ball out to his teammates who weren't even open with the shot clock running down.
  8. Sooooo, Space Jam 2

    Are kidding me? Did you even watch that series? LeBron was scared to even take the ball to the rack against the Mavs in the 4th quarter. He didn't do a good job of scoring. He didn't do a good job of making plays for he teammates. He didn't do ANYTHING when his team needed him to be aggressive. Even some of the most devote LeBron fans can admit he dropped the ball in that series. I'm not sure what your excuse is.
  9. Sooooo, Space Jam 2

    LeBron was terrible. There is no way to sugarcoat it. Go back and look at his nearly non existent 4th quarter stats in that series. He played like a poor man's Scottie Pippen. If LeBron brought his B-game the Heat would have won that series with the way D-Wade was playing.
  10. Sooooo, Space Jam 2

    Come on now. D-Wade was healthy in 2011 against the Mavs. He averaged 27, 7 & 5 on 55% shooting in that Finals series. Meanwhile LeBron was a no show when his team needed him the most. That series ended any discussion between he and MJ.
  11. Frank Kaminsky looking good in summer league

    He took 5 threes a/game this season. Way too many for a guy with his size & skill set. He should be under 3 a/game and in the post more. I don't want to get this thread too off-topic. So I'm done talking about LeBron.

    I think LeBron's post game leaves a lot to be desired. It's the one area of his game that will need to improve significantly as he gets older if he wants to stay at the top. He's never been committed to the post. And I have never understood why. He should have been dominating games in the post years ago like a Magic Johnson instead of chucking 3s.
  13. Well, Jameis has good taste in women....

  14. Open WWE/NXT/Pro Wrestling thread

    I tried to get back into WWE last year after not watching for years. But I just couldn't get into it. Then I discovered NJPW and felt like a kid again. My favoirte recent match was between Honma and Ishii. You just don't see this style of fighting in WWE which is a shame.
  15. Raptors @ Hornets

    The Bucks could easily fall from 6th. They haven't looked too good since they traded Knight.
