 @JimmyPriour  @CraigThomas Flip teams and you think TD wins all those titles? 

 

Timmy's the best, but don't play off KG like he's not right there with him.  How many Hall of Famers did KG play with in Minnesota?  Basketball is a team game... there are 8 or 9 other guys who play, and have impacts.  

 

I know what KG is.  I know what he does.  But I'm not making shit up and holding it against him.  I've been critical of things that have actually happened.... but not rumored comments.  

 

Just because things are believable, doesn't make them true.

 @JimmyPriour  @CraigThomas Right, because Carmelo has always had a cool head an no history of losing his temper?  Gimme a break.  People are making it sound like only the worst possible comments are necessary to piss Melo off.  

 

Again... reality, people.  It's not like Melo's a choir boy or the epitome of cool nerves.  And watch any basketball game closely enough... those jabs happen everywhere, with everyone.  Wake up. 

 

I love TD and have crazy respect for the Spurs.  But let's be real.  KG is right there with TD as one of the all time greats.  Don't let your hate cloud the reality of what he's done on the court.

 @CraigThomas Humph?  Zaza?  They're the same freakin' size as KG.  I know.. I know.... the reality doesn't fit your distorted view of KG as a snarling, evil, Disney cartoonish villain.  

 

I know he's no saint, that's for sure.  But I'm also not going to blast him for rumors  or some made up racism the fuels who he picks on.  And that's all I'm asking of others.  There is NO confirmation that KG said that to Duncan.  None.  Not in SI, not anywhere.  But it's played off as fact.  

 

I ask you.... if it was you that was accused of saying it and there was no confirmation anywhere of  it... how would you feel about people just accepting it as fact anyway? 

 

Hate him for what he's ACTUALLY done... and ACTUALLY said.  That's all I'm saying.

 @CraigThomas you can call him a punk if you want.  But get the facts right.  And look at you.... in the same paragraph as you trash him for what he "allegedly" said to TIM DUNCAN and CARMELO ANTHONY.... you then turn around and drop the "usually white, foreign and smaller.  Tim's the same size.  Melo's almost the same size.  last I checked, they're black.  So's Channing Frye.  So are half the guys KG messes with.  

 

Check yourself man.  Hate KG all you want.  I'm not trying to change your mind.  What I am doing is calling bullshit on why you're hating him.  You don't even know what he said.  You just choose to believe rumors because it somehow justifies you hating him

"allegedly".... "allegedly"..... blast him as if it was fact. 

 

I simply ask the following questions:

Where is there proof that Kevin Garnett said that to Tim Duncan?  There are unsubstantiated rumors that he said something, but no one has confirmed that.

 

Where is the proof that Garnett said the Honey Nut Cheerios line?  Because some idiot online said he heard it from someone and it took off on Twitter... does that make it true? 

 

KG says some outlandish shit, I'm not going to pretend he doesn't.  But I do have a problem with hiding behind "allegedly" but then trashing the guy for things that may or may not be true.

It's just a picture.  A picture isn't cheating.  All he needs to say is "I posed for a picture with 2 fans, and they tried to get a little out of control." Whatever the truth is or what happened after it was taken... it's just a picture with a couple of fans.

 @dannyholloway I hate to take it here... but it's hard to tell a young black man that someone "owns" him.... that connotation carries a little different significance. 

 

I'm not accusing Skip of anything racist or anything... I'm just saying that something worded that way sounds different to black man than Skip intended it.  I'm not shocked at the response.

He's a troll.  He sounds f'ing ridiculous and he doesn't care so long as he gets reactions.  Just look at how he ends it... by inviting Durant on the show.

 

It's a ratings/exposure thing.  He makes ridiculously stupid comments.. he rattles a cage... and then he hopes that person responds and people all pay attention.

@SaintsNation it might not have an effect on his playing time, but it will affect his production. And his minutes will decrease with an added player getting time in the back court. You know full well this league isn't about straight back ups.

The point of the post is that Jack's production is up. He's taking advantage of the opportunity. Sorry you missed the over all point there. Back off a little.

Alright, let's give this a shot: A lot of these are hard to do (especially the women.. .but we'll get a few)

Lucille Austero... she has vertigo and is always falling down. So let's go with someone who's always hurt, or falling down. We're going with Vince Carter. He's always on the floor.

Steve Holt... always tooting his own horn, but still an underachiever. How about LeBron James.

Gene Parmesan.... always in and out of character and costumes. I'll go with Chris Bosh for all the characters he'd dress up as in his youtube videos.

Rita... Seems functional, but is really, umm, mentally challenged. So the choice is David Kahn.

Marta... hot latin actress? Helloooo? Eva Longoria. Done.

Ann Veal... super religious virgin? We'll go old school and say AC Green. If you don't know why, google AC Green and virgin.

Tony Wonder... a huge talker whose entire act consisted of tricks with food. So he's a 1-dimensional trash talker.... sounds like Eddie House to me.

Bob Loblaw... straight laced, by the books. Maybe Spurs GM RC Buford?

That's what we can do so far. Hope that works for you. Sorry it took so long.

@DavidWood So on the one hand... it's not a big deal cuz it's a dislocated elbow and they popped it back in. But later you say "watch Rondo be messed up for a long, long time." So which is it.... is it an injury that's no big deal... or is it an injury that's so bad that playing with it will mess him up??

Cut the shit here. No one even compared the two freakin injuries until Pop opened his yap for some dumb reason. If Manu did what Rondo did, you all would still be blowing him.
