Great work Ben. I couldn't agree more. Way to break it down too, that really illustrates how ridiculous it has gotten.
5 minutes of Mark Sanchez instead of some of those baseball highlights.
I can't think of anyone who I would be less interested to get basketball takes on than Kurt Rambis.
Like you said, it can be so good. But most of the time, it is a waste of time. You have to go to the NBA/MLB websites these days to get decent size highlights, it's ridiculous. Take 30 seconds to SHOW us the game, and then 3 minutes to talk about it? WHY!?

@CollegeWolf I was literally LOLing on the #22 when reading the Pee King Vikings comment, and subsequent Kissing Suzy Kolber follow up comments. The people on the bus have to be wondering what comedic periodical I print out every Monday which gives me so many more LOL moments on that bus ride than the rest of the week combined. They would be alarmed if they learned it was actually a weekly "news update" about football that is written to be taken seriously. Unintentional comedy is the funniest kind.

@Wolfenstein Never less than a steal per game or a block per game in any season? That's a great stat. I secretly have kind of high hopes for AK47. Sounds like he completely owned Euroleague and the Olympics since hs left the L. I like him as a vet on this team. I hope.
Leezy could end up being the kind of guy who is just good to have on the floor. He seems like a smart player. Plays tough D, seems wise & athletic out there.

@WithMalice @CollegeWolf Oh, I didn't realize that the Mavs had 2 1st teamers, a 3rd teamer, and a GM of the Year that year. Or that they didn't make it out of the conference semis in 2007.
Great counterpoint Donald, you really put me in a box there.
2 years, 4 months ago on 2011/12 NBA Awards: All-NBA Teams | Basketball
@WithMalice @CollegeWolf Come on Don, don't put words in my mouth again. Do the math. If one team has (according to your votes) 2 of the best 5 players in the league, and 3 of the best 15, plus a GM of the year (which would mean good role players), one would think they could at least get to the conference finals.
That is simple logic Don.
@WithMalice @CollegeWolf I am just so surprised with how much the Lakers have been struggling in the playoffs, considering they have 2 All-NBA 1st teamers, an All-NBA 3rd teamer, and GM of the Year! :)

But Gasoft and Kupcheck still suck.
@WithMalice @CollegeWolf Don please stop. Jeff & the board doesn't need this crap.
All I did was counterpoint your Laker-biased opinions, and you take it personally and make it personal.
@WithMalice I bring up good points, and you just counter with nonsense and meaningless statements.
It is pointless to even debate with you. You don't listen or validate points, you just pull nonsense out of nowhere and call me "chief" and "champ".
I don't want to clutter up Jeff's great board with childish garbage, so I will let you get the final word.
I am 100% certain I am better at basketball than you so watch your mouth with that last sentence.
@WithMalice @CollegeWolf @BradBornhorst @Jeff Fox @Daddyfatsax Weirdly, I agree with Malicious Man on most of this Kobe convo. Except for the way he over-dramatizes it, of course.
Hey @WithMalice your boy Gasoft is really looking like a 3rd teamer!! What a competitor. You never were able to tell me why Mitch KupCHECK deserves GM of the year. But thanks for the laugh!
Dirk should've been on the 3rd team. Can't believe Melo & Josh were picked over him.
KG is owning. Winner.
@WithMalice Oh man. Here we go. Mitchy boy gave away Lamar Odom, and failed to get CP3 to LA, while alienating Gasolina in the meantime. He deserves GM of the year, because of.... ??? .... Sessions? Please.
I meant Dirk should've been on the list, as in on the top 3 teams somewhere. He was on my 3rd.
I'm not a Blake guy either but I just can't see putting Gasol ahead of him unless you are a biased Lakers fan.
Nice comments guys, haha. Hey With Malice - did you vote Kupcheck for GM of the Year?! hahahahaha! Some one did, it HAD to be you.
For what it's worth I had Kobe on my 1st team. I thought Dirk should've been on there. Agree that Bynum should be 1st team over Dwight this season. Love is 2nd team.
And come on, Blake > Pau this year. That's obvious.
Blake got the last spot on my 3rd team, but still...Pau is the ultimate 3rd banana. If I'm putting a 3rd on my ballot, it's Harden or Pierce/Rondo.
@Jeff Fox @CollegeWolf Fair enough, I was just curious. When I initially saw D. Wade on the 1st team I was shocked, but I guess I didn't fully realize how much time Rose has missed.
2 years, 6 months ago on 2011/12 NBA Awards: Third Quarter Edition | Basketball
Just curious what other guys got votes that were left off of the final 15...?
@Jeff Fox @CollegeWolf Wait hold up.... You didn't have Rose on any of the teams Jeff?!

2 years, 7 months ago on T-Wolves vs. Magic Live Chat Game Discussion 2/13
@SeanMichaelPatrickMurphy Now he brings Big Pecker back in... You're right, he should've been in this whole time since D12 came back.
Stan is just going at the Reddick/Barea mismatch and the Howard/Love mismatch to generate offense, and everyone else line up at the 3. So easy with the lineup we have in.
Then Wes Johnson plays like a decent, aggressive nba player for a few minutes...which just makes me angry, cuz he CAN do it, he just has no heart/brain/handles/guts I guess.
Play some defense or quit turning the ball over. Or both.
Barea is absolutely killing me tonight.
Very interesting article, Derok. Although I am generally pro-players, and believe they should be able to more or less control their own destiny, you bring up several good points, and something does have to change. All of this Chris Paul/Dwight Howard stuff right after the lockout ends and season is supposed to start is annoying and ridiculous. You would have thought with such a massive lockout, and the whole landscape of the NBA and how league issues are handled being able to potentially change with a new CBA, that SOMEONE on one of the sides of the negotiating table could have brought up some creative solutions. Instead, both sides haggled over percentages of revenue, and the same major issues harming the NBA before the lockout went unaddressed, and will continue to be a thorn in the side of many true NBA fans.

Cool article. I love NBA gambling.
Spurs O/U 46.5 wins? I would gladly take the under on that one!
Why can't I find the Wolves O/U on wins anywhere? Has anyone seen this on any gambling websites? I am curious...

Fun read, well done guys.
@TaimurRabbani Are you really trying to say that Dirk was better than KG in 2003, 2004, 2008, 2010? Come on, that is just not rational. And when you look at both sides of the ball (aka defense) it is not even close in those years.
3 years, 1 month ago on Top 10 NBA Power Forwards of All-Time | Basketball
It has everything to do with Kevin Garnett, and nothing to do with us. You would love him too if you had watched him play and shared the community with him for over a decade. Watching him night in and night out was always a pleasure and a treat. And despite what he may seem to many people now, he was (and I believe still is) an amazing guy, beloved by all teammates fans, and everyone he interacted with. And his interviews were always so candid and...exciting! Not to mention how hard he worked, how cool he was, how larger than life he always seemed in person (from a physical and charismatic standpoint)...it goes on and on.
I got Shaq, but barely. Mainly because he was more dominating and impactful in his prime. And he was more phyiscally unique and socially impactful. Great discussion topic, this is so close that it seems no one on the panel had a strong opinion leaning heavily toward one of the other, and I echo those sentiments.
