Thats big time though don't you think?  Why not go and play for way more money then you would make here?  And it's only a matter of time before they put up enough money to lure one of our superstars away like a LeBron Or Kobe.  Once that happens it will be a snowball effect I believe.
 
On another note those Blazers are looking good.  What was your prediction on their win total this year 42?....  I think they look like a 50 win team this season if they stay on track.  New Orleans is the team that everyone is making look bad.  I think everyone is prepared for them this year and it's easy to expose them cuz their only real player is Paul.  Like I said Chandler is garbage and David West is there next scoring threat next to Paul.  Roy is the man in Portland though.  Oden is doing exactly what he is supposed to and is only going to get better.  You guys are soo young too damn!  Aldridge and Outlaw, you guys are loaded to Shaka.  As long as you lose to us it's all good thoughWink

Portland are a legit team. They were legit last year and they'll be better this year. I doubt that Kobe and Lebron would jump ship to Europe anytime soon. Maybe when they are old and faded then ya. All things a side though, GO CLIPPERS!!!!!!

yes, Blazers are legit. they've been making very good draft choices last few years, especially this past year. Bayless was a great pick up for them, IMO. hopefully the blazers don't turn into a modern day Clippers and trade away all of their building block players. 
peace.

Well the Lakers are now 14-1.  Just got done killing the Raptors!  THey remind me of the Spurs, like they should be playing in Europe with all those foreign players.  Both the spurs and even more so the Raptors shoot the long range shot very well.  Back to the Lakers though I can't wait for Christmas day when we play the Celtics to see just where we are. 
 
Alas my bears lost today and it seems like we just can't get over the hump.  Devon Hester comes out guns blazing and catches a 50+ yard td and it looks like we're in the game.  Adrian Peterson is a monster though and my favorite player in the league.

The worst divorce of 2008.  Knicks and Marbury.  Just a stupid situation all the way around and both sides have handled it about as poorly as possible.  The Pacers are doing the same thing with Jamal Tinsley and manage to keep it out of the media.  The Knicks should have known better. 

His whole situation is going to be a huge reason why I think NBA players are going to lose guranteed contracts in the next labor talks.

I think they will have a lockout.  Owners are going to look for a provision to get rid of bad contracts.  The Allan Houston rule was just a start.  The players are doing nothing in the media to build up support for their cause.  In fact, I would actually support it. I bet guys would go to the gym finally if they knew their 10 million dollar per year salary was in jeapordy.

Basically allowed the teams to dump 1 bad contract as an incentive to kick off the new labor agreement.  Allan Houston of course was pretty much the poster child for it.  The Knicks gave him 120 million dollars when nobody else was offering more than 70 million.  He proceeded to get injured and basically never played again and wreaked havoc on their salary cap for years to come as a result. 

Other notable people under this were Michael Finley, Brian Grant and maybe Shawn Kemp, but I can't recall now.  The players still got all of their money, though the teams were allowed to pay it out over 10 years.  The players were also free to sign with different teams.

Grant has actually held up quite well the last 2 years and hasn't played that badly either.  I sure thought he wasn't ever going to make it back to being an everyday player again myself.  I am really glad he did though because Grant is nothing but a class act and I like when those guys succeedThumbs%20Up  Bill Walton should have fell under that rule too...throw it down big fellaLOL  Poor Grant Hill never got to live up to what he would have become if it wasn't for those nagging ankles.  I think he would have been a top ten player in the league for sure, he was definitely on his way.

Actually, I just googled it, and even though its nicknamed "The Allan Houston Rule" the knicks actually used it to waive Jerome Williams because they gambled that Houston's knee injury would have been covered by his insurance policy anyway.  I never actually realized he wasn't waived under the rule that was later named after him.

Yeah that was the craziest part of that whole rule shaka.  I was just going to post up they didn't use it to waive him.  I too think they should get rid of guaranteed contracts in the NBA.  The league is making strides to get back to its glory days of the 90s but all this crap with players like Marbury and all the other phucks who screw up and sit on the bench and make 400k a game is total garbage.  I think contracts in all sports should be incentive based.  Guarantee them all the league minimum and let them work for the rest.

I actually did a dunk like this once in a game.  The guy I jumped over was only about 6'2" though.  I could do it pretty easilly with someone in the 5'6" to 5'9" range messing around in practice.  Same thing with my brother.  highest I ever got in the air was when I got stiches over my left eye from hitting my head on the rim going for a block.  Still got the scar to prove it!  Another scar on my lip from hitting my face on the lower edge of the backboard.

Yeah, something in the genes.  Brother is 5'10" and still in shape, have seen him pull 360's in traffic.  All my cousins are between 5'7" and 6'1" and throw down pretty easily.  Every single one of us has horrible knee's though.  I think its funny that I pretty much pass out walking up a flight of stairs right now I'm in such bad shape, but I can still dunk a basketball pretty easily......well once, then I'm too tired to try again.

Well once again the Lakers go into a game thinking they can turn it off and on whenever they want to and lose a game because of it.  They only play consistant D-fense when they feel like it and honestly if they played D-fense for 48 minutes they would blow everyone out no problem, and I just don't know why they won't buy into it.  If they keep this attitude they won't win another title and it pisses me off.  Kobe is always yelling at everyone for everything and tonight that last play was his fault.  He decided to switch on his man and left Gasol out to dry when dude cut to the basket and got a lay up try, both Gasol and Kobe tried to block the shot and Kobe should have blocked out instead and wasn't in postition.  Subsequently the ball was tapped in for the win.  They had a 15 point lead going into the 4th quarter.  If they blow people out and keep the foot on the gas pedal other teams will give up, but instead they are sending the wrong message by letting teams creep back in.  Teams will all think they have a chance to beat the Lakers because they let their guard down consistantly.  COmpletely wrong message to send to the rest of the league!

Soccer players have hidden hops, they just have to learn how to transfer their horizontal explosiveness into the vertical plane.  I was a soccer player for a long time.  My freshman year my vertical leap was a whopping 14".  After a year of playing basketball it was in the mid 30's.  I was 5'6" the first time I dunked a ball at 15.

that's just good genes.  i could probably do leg presses and drills for a straight year and not be able to dunk....and i'm 5'8. 

i think dunks look extra cool when you're short.  there was a guy in my hs that was about 5'5-5'6 that could dunk real easy, it was the slowest, smoothest dunk i've ever seen.  it's been reported that spud webb was able to dunk his senior year of high school standing only 4 feet 11 inches.  i wish i could have seen that with my own eyes.

Good genes can give you a massive head start.  But I'm a firm believer that if you really had the time and focus, you could probably do it.  I have seen some really non athletic people make huge strides as athletes.  Its just nowhere near as easy for some as it is for others.  Also, keep in mind I basically played basketball literally 8 hours a day for several years.  I was totally OCD about it.  I really sucked for a long time and had to make myself into a decent player. 
 
Leg presses aren't that good for hops anyway.  You want to do explosive exercises.  Cleans, deadlifts, martial arts or something.

I've played soccer for 14 yrs now, I've gotten real good at winning balls in the air over taller people. Also, I get nowhere near dunking, but it's funny that I still manage to out-rebound many guys way taller than me, just cuz I know how to jump. But I still suck at basketball at least on offenseLOLLOL

I think that punishment is incredibly stupid... he is clearly a tactless idiot and mouthing of to the media, but you're seriously going to suspend him for it?  Meanwhile Todd Bertuzzi's still in the league?  Complete nonsense.  Gary Bettman needs to his head out of his ass.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

Avery basically went on camera saying "Hey (player on team we're playing tomorrow), remember how you're getting my sloppy seconds with Elisha Cuthbert?"
 
He said sloppy seconds on camera and the media, league, and his team are basically sentencing him to death.
 
He was outta line, but dang he's gonna regret this one.  Gotta keep the over the top trash talking on the field or ice.

Just remember the formal disciplinary action is yet to be determined.  He has to do the customary "meet with the League" first and then the discipline will happen.

I LOVE physical play.  My coaches could never figure out how a guy so skinny was so strong in traffic.  I just head straight for the contact and power right through anyone in the way.  Obviously pure physics takes over at some point, but usually I'm so high in the air it doesnt matter.
 
Had 5 double digit block games in high school as a little gaurd.  Still remember the game when I grabbed 13 rebounds in a quarter and 7 of them were offensive.  Jumping so high and so quickly gave me a huge advantage, plus I have huge hands so I could just palm or cradle the ball with one hand right in traffic.

AHAHAHAHAHA that is one of the funniest things I have heard in while.  I don't see why that should cause him to get kicked out of the league though.  Big freaking deal.  Shaq swore on camera during a live game and didn't even get suspended.  I remember when Mike Tyson fought Razor Ruddick on regular TV live and they were stupid enough to interview him seconds after the fight was over.  I don't remember the whole thing, just the part where he said "he punches like a ****ing mule, S***, mother******"

I just watched the clip.  Big freaking deal?  Tasteless?  Definitely.  Maybe worth a fine, sure why not.  But totally suspended?  I really don't get it.  Its hockey.  They let people fight on the ice.  I really don't see the problem.
