The Sad State of Pro Basketball


#168

Oh please. Down 3-1 Cavs came back to win against, who was that. Let me think on it…

Could the like happen again?

…I think it beyond consideration. How boring pro ball has become.


#169

I think you are rebutting something that exists only in your head at this point.


#170

Are you saying the series wasn’t a forgone conclusion? I thought it was, Elle Moskweeta.

#174

Then you’re arguing with yourself, as I pointed out.


#175

Okay - you seem to think the Cavs got a chance. Worry on, Elle Moskweeta.


#176

I’m saying I hadn’t said anything, so you’re arguing against a point nobody had made.

You need to tell the voices to stop bothering you so you can listen to what other people say.


#177

This is the basketball thread and I’ll discuss it as I wish. If you don’t want to discuss the thread topic then why be here?


#178

I was willing to discuss in here, but you got started without me with the idea that you could speak for me as well. Why bother when you’re on such a roll?

Again, the voices, try to quiet them so you can actually listen to what others say.

Et tu, Moskweeta?

Portland had the #1 Pick, we could have had Durant, but since we’ve had such wonderful luck in drafting potential upside big guys(The Sam Bowie Curse, rather than this kid named Jordan), we went ahead and drafted what’s his name (Greg Oden) that big center guy that has since retired after his knees blew out in his 2nd or 3rd year.


#185

We got to see a game, Boozeau. Be out there when I can.


#187

yay, Warriors!

In all this talk of where teams stand all-time, I’d like to suggest people overlook the 89-90 Pistons far too easily. Their interior of Laimbeer, Edwards, Mahorn (one year) Rodman and Salley would have kicked the shit out of the Warrior interior and Draymond in particular. As for Steph Curry?

And I haven’t even brought up Isiah Thomas. Again, that Pistons team could beat you any way you wanted. They beat the Bird/McHale Celtics, the Magic/Kareen Lakers and the Jordan/Pippen Bulls pretty well.


#190

Maybe, maybe not.


#191

I’m just pointing out they are quickly dismissed and had the tools and talent to play with and beat, with money on the table, teams considered the best in history. As with any game, no definites.


#192

They did have a pretty good team in that era, as did my Blazer’s that made some noise around the same time, but no cigars for them tho. (on a side note, I guess the Pistons recently asked the Blazer’s about interviewing our coach Stott’s and were told no, before they hired Casey, which is flattering I’m sure for a coach)
