immaculateswag asked: You can't compare perimeter players to power forwards. Also Kobe took a bad team to the playoffs but the team he played against the Suns played no defense in their playoff runs they couldn't stop anybody. He is shattering 25 and 50 year old records a better rebounder than Dwight Coward and is more versatile than Pau Gasol. But what is the formula in Minnesota? This is the same team that drafted Johnny Flynn and had 4 young pgs on their roster decided to bring in Rubio who doesn't do jack.
I’m like 95% certain he’ll be a Laker soon and if he can prove it to me that he’s a number one guy then I’ll be happily wrong. Until then all we have to base him on his 6 seasons and no playoffs. Heck, even Pau took Memphis to the playoffs 3 times in 7 seasons, albeit they got swept each time but he’s a PF and he did it as the 1 guy on his team with a similar team to Love’s.
Another unnecessary win for the Lakers. I’m a the only one who doesn’t want the Lakers to wallow around in mediocrity? Because thats exactly what will happen unless we can produce an elite player and this draft is our best chance to do so. If you think having Kevin Love will be enough then you clearly haven’t been paying attention to how poorly the Wolves have played all these years.
Kevin Love is a great player but he’s a complementary player like Pau. You need to have a Kobe Bryant to put him alongside of. You can’t bank on getting Kevin Durant. Other guys like Westbrook I’m not convinced can lead this team to a chip even when paired with Love. I mean, if he cannot do it with Durant then Love won’t work out either. The great thing about having a player like Kobe was that we had an elite player and with the right pieces along him we can get a chip. We need to find that player.
Renee Young talks with Fandango backstage after he distracted Xavier Woods and cost him a victory
This is legit one of the funniest backstage interviews I’ve ever seen. Fandango is a good talker and his promos are funny. “You’re not even a real journalism” had me cracking up. Too bad they didn’t put this one on RAW or let him give more promos.
The Knicks make tanking look so damn easy. They have the 5th worst record in the the entire NBA and they don’t even own their own pick. They’re like the only team in the bottom ten that actually was aiming to be serious contenders at the start of the season too.
I’m actually disappointed that the Lakers won tonight. I really don’t care what that says about me as a fan. You get a big win against a top NBA team and a former rival in an arena where the Lakers generally do poorly, you think I would happy.
Some fans don’t have the patience to sacrifice short term victories for long term success. A win this season means absolutely nothing. When you have a young team full of prospects a win like this is good for morale but when your team is full of castaways that more than half of won’t be here next year than its means nothing because they’re playing hard for a contract regardless. I want a franchise player that can carry the franchise for the next 15 years if that means rooting for the team to lose then so be it. Every win pushes that much further from getting that franchise player.
But only for this season..
Just a thought.. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is this generations Arnold Schwarzenegger. Transitioning from being the top of one field (bodybuilding, professional wrestling) to being a major movie star. I wonder if The Rock will ever run for governor of California.
I wish Nintendo made a Pokemon game for Android. I know it will never happen because of the 3DS, but it would be a perfect match on Android. It would make slow work days go by fast.
Don’t be afraid to say it guys: KEVIN DURANT COST THE WEST THE GAME
Players in this all-star game that I don’t like: James Harden, Dwight Howard, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Anthony Davis’ Unibrow
I used to really dislike Blake Griffin. Also Carmelo Anthony and Tony Parker.
