  1. The NFL sent two garbage teams to L.A., ultimately screwing the Raiders out. Come time for the Chargers/Raiders game, do not be surprised if that entire stadium is loaded with Raiders fans. Both of them will lose 10 or more games. L.A. is a tough market as it is, but the league didn't help by sending trash teams there instead of a team with a pretty good fan base that would've showed up and still is going to show up there (Raiders).
  2. LeBron for MVP!

      Never had any issue with Steve Kerr ever. He's one of the more likable coaches outside of Poppovich. His anti-Trump rant was a thing of beauty after the election.

      Warriors win, but they struggled. And I hate hearing how Durant will be saved mostly for the finals if they play the Cavs since well um.......

      Yet LeBron haters love to accuse LeBron of going to a "loaded" team in Miami, yet that's exactly what Durant did. Even worse! The Warriors can actually win WITHOUT Durant. Miami lost 50+ games the year after LeBron left.

      My relatives are driving me insane. a few are in town.

       

      OMG........Lebron did another first round sweep! Just like last year!

       

      Steve Kerr is pretty cool. I like him, sadly his team is a bunch of egg heads but he is cool. And he suffers a lot with mysterious health things sadly.

       

      Be back later tonight probably, not sure but yeah........:headspin:

      Does LeBron even take the regular season serious anymore? lmao He waits till the playoffs to awaken. 

       

      The Warriors didn't look that great last night. They could've lost had it not been for that run they had. Happy though for Durant he can sit out while his star-studded team he's riding the coat tails of can win without him. 

  3. It certainly creates a lot of distractions for teams. I'm happy it wasn't the Saints. Tampa Bay already has one big distraction..... She'll be a big part of Hard Knocks. It will be like a reality TV show for her, won't be shocked if she completely steals the show with her antics...just wait till Tampa Bay starts losing, and she is going to go off on the media there and create a storm with her Twitter account and ranting about the media there. In Miami, she routinely targeted sports writers for the Miami Herald, ranting about the QB, and the Dolphins owner.
  4. Whatever you believe, outside of this fan base, most NFL fans will always believe the Colts truly did tank that year since "Suck for Luck" was even on T-shirts and a big movement online at the time. That was a glorious tank job, no one could've accomplished it better or had a better slogan than "Suck for Luck". Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter. Correct. The Browns are the main team who offered to throw their entire draft to the Colts to get Luck.
  5. Tomorrow the NFL schedules will be properly released for all 32 teams. What are your predictions for the schedules? Mine is that the Falcons will open their first home in their new stadium against the Saints, and it could be an SNF game. *The GB/Atlanta rematch will be a SNF or MNF game *Chiefs/Pats will be the Thursday night opener.
  6. The 1992 Oilers know their pain for not running the ball with a 25 point lead.
  7. Lots of Miko Grimes This will be her reality TV show.
  8. Red Letter Media spoofing the "nerd" culture is the best thing ever. VERY COOL....

      They're making fun of nerdy "geek culture" and all the stuff on Youtube of people over-analyzing move trailers and how VERY COOL everything is. 

  9. LeBron is 11-0 in the first round including 6 sweeps. Pacers were doomed before this series even began...If LeBron was to finally lose in the first round, Chicago and Miami would've been the teams since they have an edge on the Cavs lately.
  10. Hoping the "you know what" factory can hold on and win this game. But, I have to say, last year the Cavs also struggled a ton to get by games like the ones they had vs. Detroit.

      And the dude in my avatar is tough to come by too who was a 6'6 BEAST. A ball hog but a BEAST. A beautiful beast.

       

      Also MUSCULAR from the beginning.

      He always had great muscles on his arms and in great shape. Never did he have to bulk up and gain additional weight or anything like that.

      Oh they ARE screwed in Boston. I am kinda lost though to how a team with Wade/Butler/Rondo is only the 8th seed?

       

       

       

      I dug out this old December article from 538 to show you. They penned it down that the Bulls beat the best teams and lose to the worst ones.

      The Bulls’ puzzling, two-faced play stands out most when it happens in consecutive games, as it did earlier this month. The club beat the defending-champion Cavaliers the night before getting drilled by the Dallas Mavericks, who, along with the Wolves and Sixers, have the worst record in the NBA.
       

      The showing wasn’t out of the ordinary. During the past five full seasons and what’s been played so far this year,1 the Bulls have had nine instances — more than any other club2 — in which they knocked off a team with a pre-game winning percentage of at least .600, only to then lose to an opponent with a .400 winning percentage or worse the next game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Bulls narrowly escaped laying another egg by holding on to beat a lowly Miami unit this weekend after an impressive win over San Antonio.

       

      This makes Chicago sound like the Chiefs....A team who often can beat up on great teams, but then get beat down by garbage like when K.C. lost to freaking Tampa Bay this past year, but swept the Raiders and also beat down Atlanta.

      I think I heard the Bulls had issues gelling......due to some egos on the team and alpha males in general, it took a while and there was some weekly drama too.

      In NBA height thats like considered midget at 5'9. IT is an elite scorer at times but he can have huge issues defending all the dudes over 6 feet tall. IT and Rondo have been going at it a lot too in this series and Rondo is actually 6'1 believe it or not. 

       

      Watching these games actually makes me remember the old days when Rondo was so good with the Celtics. The way he can dictate the game on the court, pass the ball and get all those assists. Rondo looks more muscular now too then his old days in Boston.

       

      Believe it or not, Lonzo Ball is the same height as Kobe Bryant. He is just super skinny. But, I think you could take Lonzo and add weight on him and make him into an elite player......."maybe."

      Oh yeah, you're right about height in the NBA. I think Allen Iverson was 5"9 or close to that, he was always known as being the "littlest guy in the league".

       

      Teams that run their entire offense through a little guy tend to be doomed to fail. I don't watch the Celtics as closely as you do, but I know Allen Iverson had this exact same problem with the Sixers. They relied so heavily on him to do every single thing on the court, and it doomed them since he never had a real big man to help out. From what I've seen, the Celtics seem to think IT can do it all on his own. I think they messed up during free agency by not getting him a legitimate playmaker to help out, Paul George would've totally helped.

      Rondo is playing in this series like the old Rondo from the past. 

       

      I've never been big on Rondo cause of his ego, but one of my favorite memories was seeing him in 2012 take Miami to 7 games. That Celtics team was practically exhausted and broken down, and Rondo played his butt off in that series. That was the series with the very questionable calls I think in Game 2 where Wade was all over Pierce and got fouled and shot free throws after putting his hands on him. Omg, Miami one game shot over 50 free throws, it was nuts.

      Let's pray he has Kobe's work ethic or at least part of it. From watching how dedicated Kobe was even in his final season, I don't think we'll ever see someone that hardcore again. If Kobe Bryant were a guitar player, he would be one of those super hardcore type players, who practice religiously for 4-7 hours a day and are never late for band practice, and get REALLY mad when they have to deal with mediocre and lazy musicians that suck. lmao

       

      Most Lakers fans want Ball cause of his passing, they feel would be a fit in the offense Luke wants to run. I think I sent you a clip some time back where the Lakers passed the ball 8 times in a span of 15 seconds before taking a shot. 

       

  11. Sorry to hear for your loss, that one is tough.
  12. Sad to see him go. One of the better owners of the league, did great work outside the NFL.
  13. Good game from LeBron....32 points, 13 assists, 3 steals...Cavs are going to need to him to keep playing at a high level to make it out of the East. It's not going to be easy with that bad defense.
  14. Next thursday for sure.
  15. Just remember all the hell that was given at the Saints and Patriots over emails with the 'gates', but Eli is soooo innocent cause a Manning would never do anything bad!
