Was there really a reason to quote my post which I made before either of those dunks happened? When I made the post it was one of, if not the best dunk of the season. Seems like you're just trolling to me....

Well personally I don't think that LeBron dunk was all that nice. It was a cool dunk, but it was over little Jason Terry. That DeAndre oop was pretty nice though... feel like I would take Kobe's two dunks, Barnes' dunk on Pek, and Henderson's dunk over either though.

dunks do nothing for me anymore really. yes, they are exciting to watch, but athletically, not much to them really. every player in the NBA can dunk it these days. Alley-oops are impressive because of the timing required etc and like I said, dunks are fun to watch, but there's nothing impressive about them.

Dunno how the Lake Show can let a team like the Wolves come back. Pau being inserted into the starting lineup seems to have totally fuged their Karma. Too late in the season to be messing with the lineup.

Not to mention with the Metta injury Pau has to be in the starting lineup unless you're going to play Mamba at the three for a significant amount of time which is just asking for trouble....

Valid point but I will not miss Metta hoisting up 3s. I don't even want to see him in Purple and Gold next year.

I've heard rumors that he's opting out because he's already agreed to a three year deal at about 2.5 per with the Lakers. Saves them room so they can use more then the mini, but it really hurts Clark's development if he's back. Really hope that doesn't happen....

    • Man, that is scary as poo! If they are dumb, and post it on their social media accounts, a bunch of them.  Most kids aren't very smart about how the world works at their age, and they will get scared.  There will be a few hold outs who don't "snitch," but more of those kids will want to cut a deal to stay out of jail. What sucks is that there's very little that can be done to intelligently solve the problem.  Sure, the John Wayne types will say "try me, punk" as they pull out their guns.  Others will blame the families and communities (which do have a significant share of the blame).  While others still will blame the greater culture and society at large.  What leads kids to this?  Is it media?  Poverty?  Boredom?  Easy money?  Internet fame? In my time, I knew a fair number of teenage felons.  A few opened up to me about why they took to crime was that they didn't see any other option.  Who either fails to show the kids that there is an opportunity beyond crime or offers them that chance?  I will say, when you start to dig into the mind set of a person in poverty (white, black, everything else), you see a lot of causes that are the same.  
    • Where's that glorious breakdown thread you promised the huddle 2 years in a row now?  I've been dying to read your uneducated breakdown for awhile now.
