#2863541 New jerseys availability date?

Posted by Zaximus on 24 July 2014 - 04:04 PM

Sounds like I need to get 2K on PC


Only thing that sucks about PC version, is it isn't nextgen graphics yet and IDK if the next one will be either.  It's on sale cheap usually though.  I play it with Xbox controller and mostly it works fine.  The mods are definitely awesome though.  People put in all the shoes and jerseys throughout the year too.

#2862185 The downsides of being rich

Posted by Zaximus on 23 July 2014 - 03:46 PM

The fact is that even if you get a good education and work hard, very few career choices are going to help you get "rich".  I'm sure obviously some will, but obviously EVERYONE can't choose those but yet we need people doing the other jobs too.  Then you have crap that comes up too, like medical expenses, deaths, etc. 

#2861828 The downsides of being rich

Posted by Zaximus on 23 July 2014 - 10:48 AM

Seriously, shut up.


I get what they are saying but get over it.  There are bad problems, and then there are good problems.  Having to lose a little trust in people because you are now rich is a good problem, not being able to pay a bill because you don't have the funds, is a bad problem.   If I had millions I would keep myself busy with charities.  Not just handing over the money but get down there on the ground level.  Help build homes for Habitat for Humanity, etc. 


I'm with pstall; challenge accepted!


It just means the people you had before you got rich are that much more important to you.   Granted, I only have a handful of close friends and a little bit more of family, so if I won a big lottery I would definitely pay off their homes and help them out.  But new folks, probably not until I fully trusted.


But I'm the type of guy that is frugal and I just couldn't buy five Porches for no reason.  In fact, I wouldn't ever drive again and just keep a driver on the payroll and I'd ride in a nice, comfortable backseat to my destinations. 




You can get in the Tinderbox and tell non-rich people they are lazy, uneducated, and just want a hand out!

#2860952 Shawn Marion to Charlotte?

Posted by Zaximus on 22 July 2014 - 11:57 AM

You'd really take CDR over a proven vet like Marion?  He still averaged 10.5pts 6.5  boards last year.  Having someone like that for when MKG gets in foul trouble would be nice.  Taylor can't even run so that's an issue. 

#2860652 The Leftovers - New HBO Show

Posted by Zaximus on 22 July 2014 - 07:16 AM

Really?  Last week's episode about the pastor was one of the best single episodes I've seen on TV in a long time.   I think some answers are coming but probably slowly.

#2859658 Extreme butthurt brought to you by Pacers beat writer

Posted by Zaximus on 21 July 2014 - 07:36 AM

I think he just wanted a fresh start here.  I bet he's tired of the "blowing in the ear" jokes and story.  It'll follow him here, but at least he can start over with a new team.  Maybe he felt a bit betrayed by the way his coaches/Bird/teammates did him last year.  Not sure.   Maybe he felt he can be a bigger star here and make the team more of his than he would be able to in Indy. 

#2859484 A little perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

Posted by Zaximus on 20 July 2014 - 10:34 PM

We deal with Israel for a couple reasons.  Mostly, strategic reasons.  They are honestly just crazy but we need that place for a base of operations and an ally in the middle east.


This is successful because of all the religious people in America that will fully back Israel no matter what because of the bible, and also some thing they are scared about that when Israel finds peace the Apocalypse is around the corner, right?  


This why threads like this are pointless, the politicians have just bashed it into the American peoples' minds for so long that Israel are angels that nothing can change their mind.


I do believe that technically, Israel violated UN sanctions and laws many times but nothing was ever done.  It is what it is.

#2857012 What team in the East is deeper than we are?

Posted by Zaximus on 18 July 2014 - 12:54 PM

Henderson is a class act and a good player, I think he'll be fine getting paid 6 mill off the bench.  In fact, he may enjoy it more.  He won't have as much pressure and he'll be competing against lesser (mostly) players when he's in there.   He may actually flourish out there.  Plus it's a short deal and if he proves himself he can get another deal somewhere else for probably more (since cap is going up).  Also, at least we're a good team as well.


We should be happy to have him off the bench, that's why the Spurs dominate, great bench players.

I think PJ could play a LOT of SF if Taylor is still hurt. 

#2855108 Trade Brewing

Posted by Zaximus on 17 July 2014 - 08:13 AM

Who is going to back up Big Al and play when he's hurt?  Zeller?  I don't see that working out. 


Giving up on MKG this early would be sad, and if so, why'd we even draft him?


Henderson, whatever.


On the other hand, Gay can score.


Not sure I'd want to lose the defense and also a future 1st?  Seems silly. 

#2854230 If You Are Cho: Does Hendo Stay?

Posted by Zaximus on 16 July 2014 - 02:41 PM

I just think it's a matter of whether or not MJ, Cho, and Cliff think that a Big Al and Carlos Boozer frontcourt would be counterproductive and redundant. After all, the whole reason Utah traded for Big Al was to replace Boozer with someone that had his similar skill sets but could play center next to Paul Millsap (who plays a lot like Boozer and in turn Big Al). Utah had some problems with Paul Millsap and Big Al developing chemistry (because they're both so similar). Many would think that that frontcourt should've been pretty dominant even in the West and it really never was.


Both have great post games, both have great midrange jumpers. The one thing Boozer does (or used to be able to effectively do) is a smooth post fade-away jumper.


But yeah I agree I mean why not throw your name in the hat if he's gonna come cheap.


Clifford could always stagger playing time so Boozer plays a bit more with Biz when he's in subbing for Al.  I think the offense there is helpful since well, Biz can't really catch a pass.

#2854114 Panthers & TWC reach deal on TV programing

Not everyone has access to WCCB.


If you have OTA Antenna you do.  They are pretty cheap.

#2854100 Panthers & TWC reach deal on TV programing

Posted by Zaximus on 16 July 2014 - 12:55 PM

They sold rights to broadcast preseaon games to TWC, so if you have you dish, over the air, directv, you're poo out of luck.


No.  It's going to be simulcast on WCCB.

#2854006 Boozer?

Posted by Zaximus on 16 July 2014 - 11:47 AM

Plus you could still start Marvin, and bring Boozer off the bench to give is some offense when Al is resting



Having Biz and Boozer out there would be nice, so we still have some offense down there to pair with Biz's D.
