RE: The NBA Thread
My all time team:
PG Magic Johnson
SG Jordan
SF Bird... James will go down as the greatest but we need spacing and Bird provides that.
PF Duncan
C Shaq

Wilt, Kareem, and Russell might ha e better legacies but Shaq is scary. I think the Dream would be my second choice though.

The cycle of disrespect can start with just an appetizer.

I know this isn't targeted towards me, but can a young Celtic's fan respond?

My favorite player has always been Ray Allen. Had a signed and framed photo of his in my bedroom as a child; I wore out a signed Bucks jersey of his as a sleeping gown, as well.

As far as anything else, let me share two videos:





I hate when people say watching sports is passive - it isn't. I will never forget when I saw the Celtics when the championship in 08.

It was on a crappy 32-inch tube-TV in middle of a hot as fuck summer in Illinois. When I saw KG scream "Anything is possible!," I knew I was watching sports history. It was beautiful in way that you can't really understand or appreciate in the moment.





I remember the announcer blurting out after Pierce drilled a 3 in Lebron's eye that he "couldn't handle the truth," a play on PP's nickname.

To me, it was the reality of a dying class of athletes (heroes to me as a kid) who were struggling to make one last run at greatness. The strength of youth will always overcome the resilience of age, as it always does. But, for a moment, I was able to believe that anything was possible if all that mattered was the infallible belief of heroes who could conquer the world.

Of course, I didn't actually think that at the moment, just that the men I idolized (Allen, KG and PP) were still superhumans, even thought they would eventually lose the series.

Isn't that the saddest part of sports? That we must realize our heroes are simply fellow men?

Yeah Gio, those questions are too good for us all not to chime in on.

Who is your favorite player of all time and why?

Michael Jordan. I was born too late to really watch him in his prime, but I remember '98 and I've extensively watched his game through youtube/torrents/DVD's. I'm sure I don't need to explain why, he just played on a whole other level than everybody else. True competitor, and what's amazing about him compared to some of the stars today (LeBron, Durant) is that he physically wasn't exceptional besides his leaping ability and large hands. If you saw him on the court without knowing his greatness, he would blend in with the rest of the players. It was his dedication, work ethic, mental toughness, and bball IQ that made him great. Growing up I would watch him play and run out to the alley after the game was over trying to copy his moves. He played with such grace and perfection that we'll never see another player like him. Greatest of All Time and always will be.

Who is 2nd and 3rd?

2nd and 3rd are close and similar, but I'll go Allen Iverson at #2. He was an undersized point guard whose greatest strength was his fearlessness. Despite my Dad's criticisms, I tried to be like AI all through middle school. He made basketball cool again, and I would have my parents move the cars out of the garage so I could spend hours practicing his crossovers. He played with a chip on his shoulder and is pound-for-pound the best to ever do it, and he taught me at a young age it's not the size of the dog in the fight but rather the size of the fight in the dog.

#3. Derrick Rose. I just love his game and he's one of the most exciting players to watch nowadays. He's a humble guy from Chicago, plays the game the right way, and almost every move he makes is highlight worthy. I literally felt sick for a week after he tore his ACL, and avoided basketball for the rest of the playoffs. I knew he would come back better, but he was clearly rusty and got injured again. Everybody is doubting him now, but if anybody can come back from devastating injuries like these, it's Derrick Rose. I'm convinced he'll be back and regain his form as the MVP, and watching him persevere will make up for 2 years without him.


Who is your favorite team of all time and why?

1997-1998 Chicago Bulls. Probably not the best Bulls team, but I was old enough to remember their championship run. Jordan could no longer rely on athleticism so he developed a deadly post-up game and fadeaway. Pippen & Rodman were still perfect complementary pieces to MJ, and the role players like Kerr, Kukoc, Harper, and Longley all contributed. They could have won another one, but I was content to have the Bulls dynasty end with this team, and Jordan hitting the final shot over Russell.

Who is 2nd and 3rd?

2nd:

2010-2011 Chicago Bulls. Man I loved this team and I truly thought we would win the championship that year. Derrick Rose's MVP season was amazing and he was just so much fun to watch. We had 15 guys on this roster and all of them were likeable and contributed to the team. The Bench Mob of CJ Watson, Ronnie Brewer, Kyle Korver, Taj Gibson, John Lucas, Kurt Thomas, and Brian Scalabrine were all awesome. Thibs got the most of this team, and at the end of the day we just didn't have enough shot creators to beat the Heat. Still, this team had the best chemistry I've seen since '98 and if we were able to keep them together (especially Asik & Korver) we would've done a lot better the next years.

3rd:

2006-2007 Chicago Bulls (noticing a pattern here?). The Baby Bulls! Everybody knew this team wasn't good enough to win it all but they were damn entertaining. Luol Deng, Ben Gordon, and Kirk Hinrich were the core, and other players like Andres Nocioni, Ben Wallace, PJ Brown, Tyrus Thomas, Thabo Sefolosha, and Chris Duhon made sure this team was always competing. Ben Gordon was my favorite player for a while, another undersized yet fearless scorer. Seeing this team sweep the Defending Champion Miami Heat was priceless, they were the young guys who overachieved and played their hearts out.


What is your favorite NBA moment of all time and why?

(Sorry 2Wycked)





What an amazing series. I remember I was in the student dorms and it was close to finals and I was jumping and screaming when Noah threw that dunk down, fouling out Paul Pierce. The nerds on the floor weren't as happy.


What is 2nd and 3rd?

2nd:





Knew it was good as soon as it left his hands. I was watching at my grandma's house in Chicago and 5 seconds after the ball goes through the net I could hear cars honking and fireworks. That shot really started my love for basketball.

3rd:





Nate Robinson going off. Another undersized yet fearless scorer. I thought we were out of this game, but lil Nate wouldn't stop scoring and singlehandedly won us this game, and series. I especially remember that running bank shot at the end of the first OT, the ball was in the air and I said, "what is he doing? what a bad shOOOOOOOOH SHIT!!!!" The Bulls made a real mistake in giving him up for nothing. Players like him don't come around often, and the Bulls always lack scoring.

Yikes Gio. Tough questions.

I really don't have favorites, I just enjoy watching great basketball played at the highest level. Was that response beta?

I'll have to give this one a good think today and get back to you.

Who is your favorite player of all time and why? Who is 2nd and 3rd?

1. Jordan.
[Image: tumblr_m90qtjujHz1rnt56ho1_400.gif]
2. Bird. His stories of trash-talking, his vision, dedication... I mean, who makes a 3 that wins the game, gets voided because the coach called a timeout, goes to the opposing bench and says 'I'm shooting it from the same spot,' and ACTUALLY comes through to win the game again??? The bravado in spite of being a doughy white guy is just unbelievable.
3. Magic. Undoubtedly had an influence on how I play basketball, except for his ugly-ass shot-put 3 pointer.

Honorable mention: Barkley. Just did not give a fuck, in spite of not being the most physically gifted. Got in a fist-fight with Shaq. Nuff said. (although his career post-NBA has something to do with this ranking)

Who is your favorite team of all time and why? Who is 2nd and 3rd?

1. 95-96 Bulls. Kind of a default. Watching Jordan motivated to prove people wrong was a unique experience.
2. 99-02 Kings. I respected they had an exciting style of play that almost got them a win against a team so clearly superior to them in the Lakers. Both incarnations with J-Will and Bibby have a place in history.
[Image: giphy.gif]
3. Showtime Lakers. Obvious pick.

What is your favorite NBA moment of all time and why? What is 2nd and 3rd?

1. 98, Jordan's last shot. I was in shock for about an hour after watching that. Greatest exclamation point of someone owning what they do at the very highest level, and walking out on their own terms.
2. 98, Reggie Miller's shot on the Bulls, and Bird's, being Indiana's coach at the time, subsequent reaction.
[Image: idMtKUiN471XY.gif]
3. I wasn't yet able to process this moment, but Magic filling in at center in game 6 of the 1980 finals as a rookie and amassing 42 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists is rightfully the stuff of legend. Just a stupid stat line for anyone, but a rookie? Goddamn.

1. While the greatest player of all time undoubtedly is MJ, my favorite has always been kobe bryant. What I admire about Kobe is what other people despise about him: his desire not just to win, but to win "his way." Ultimately, that was what made him come up short vs MJ, but it was also what made him such an interesting player. That philosophy - "winning your way" - is in a way similar to what the Roosh community is all about. Learning game, working out, building a lifestyle - those are all inherently admirable things and great in and of themselves. However, as we've learned, there is a diversity of life paths that lead to our own conceptions of success, and we don't all need to follow that one model of "success" that society dictates (and many of us recognize the perverse flaws of that model). Instead, we are about "winning our way," on our terms. That, in my mind, is Kobe Bryant. That is why he "forced out" shaq. If Kobe had been the consummate team player, would he have the same legacy he has today? If he won 6 rings, but 5 came as the no.2 on a shaq team, wouldn't he just be seen as a glorified D-wade? He may never be the epitome of good basketball, or even the model of a champion, but, hate him or love him, he won on his terms, and he forced us to acknowledge his legacy.

2. second or third? Hard to say. Probably second has to be westbrook - I just love his energy, athleticism, and "fuck you" attitude. Third is really all a wash - really liked the following players: Grant Hill, Gilbert Arenas, T-Mac, Vince Carter, Kevin Durant.

3. Don't have one.

4. Don't have one.

5. Favorite moment? A couple. MJ's last shot is up there. Linsanity. Kobe's 81 points. VC's slam dunk contest. Dirk's 2011 redemption. Lakers avenging themselves against the celtics in 2010. VC's "mini-redemption" in the playoffs this year.

RE: The NBA Thread
Favorite Player: Manu Ginobilli.
Ginobilli is fearless. So much fun watching him tuck his head and drive through defenders when he first came to the league. He added a jumper and amazing passes to his game now. He's probably one of the most underrated player in the league.

2nd Favorite Player: Rafer Alston.
Alston was a legend at 15 because of his street ball fame. He went from living legend in New York to the last player off the bench with the Toronto Raptors, playing a few minutes a game. Shit like that test your character and instead of giving up he continued to work hard and was a starter for the Houston Rockets for a few years. Very fun player to watch.

3rd Favorite Player: Vince Carter.
His dunks and athletic abilities just makes him an entertaining player to watch.

I never understood why rafer couldn't stick around on a team. He always seemed effective to me, and he gave the 2009 lakers mad trouble during the semifinals.

I think his street ball image hurted him. People thought of him as turnover-prone because of his flair.

RE: The NBA Thread
My favorite player ever was Larry Bird. My earliest NBA memory was listening to the Lakers/Celtics in 1987 on a radio while camping with my brothers. I remember him fighting with everything he had against the hated Pistons. I watched the playoff game against the Pacers where Bird slammed his head on the floor, went to the locker room, then pushed everyone aside and jogged back onto the floor, made a couple of shots and inspired his team to the victory.

I tried to emulate Bird's philosophy throughout my basketball and now working professional career. Bird always acknowledged that he wasn't the most talented one on the floor, but he would do everything he could to get the most out of his own talent. That became on of the motto's of my life and is still the framework within how I still set my personal goals to this day. The goal of my life is to get the most out of my God-given talents, just like Bird did.

My favorite team is the 2014-2015 Los Angeles Clippers. I see this team coming together in a HUGE way next year. Blake Griffin wants to be great. He's going to come back next season with a better jumper a new post move.

Heard it here first!

Finals Prediction
I know Im a lil late but I LOVE bball as much as I do Women.

I feel the spurs have gotten better from last yr. Mills didn't even play last yr and now he is a big part of their system.

The heat seemed to stay the same if not worse due to the loss of mike miller. Mike miller was a MotherFucking problem for the spurs last yr in the FINALS he shot 61% from 3. It was impossible to stop lbj, wade, stick to ray allen on the fast break and worry about mike miller. Idk if Rashad lewis can fill in those shoes. Wade is healthier this time around but so is ginobili.

The spurs have begun to ride and die by the 3.The big 3 and kawhi will keep them in the game but someone needs else needs to consistently make the 3. Green,mill,belineli,boris

The heat can ride with their lbj and wade but who else is gona step up by creating their own shot? Lewis needs to be the stretch 4 or maybe bosh can start knocking down 3s.

I say Green is the xfactor as you can tell it was a close game in game 1 until he finally scored 13pts in the last 6min

Those four missed free throws really hurt. The game would have been completely different from that point on if they had hit all of them...

With LeBron and Lewis doing pretty well tonight, it actually makes me not concerned that the Spurs lost by 2. If they can make the right adjustments then they have this in the bag.

RE: The NBA Thread
The Heat, from the bottom-up, look atrocious--with ancient Allen, Lewis, and Wade (who although is purportedly healthier than last year, walks around like Mike Miller circa 2011) all logging significant minutes. And Bosh, at this point, is a glorified jump shooter.

This is a testament to Lebron's talents and his ability to neutralize the individual weaknesses of his teammates. Although I'm generally skeptical of claims of non-linearity in sports (i.e. "synergy"), there does seem to be some synergies for the Heat for the whole to be greater than the sum of its parts--with Allen, Lewis, Bosh providing spacing, and Anderson rebounding and rim protection.

Parker (when Lebron is not guarding him), Ginobili, and Duncan, all feel like immediate threats when they get the ball--and Green and Leonard seem automatic from corner 3s for kick-outs.

The only immediate threat on the Heat feels like Lebron right now.

If I were the Heat, I would try and play a James, Wade, Allen/Lewis, Bosh, Anderson line-up as much as possible. Gives you spacing and size, and James can take Parker out of the game. None of this Cole/Chalmers BS. Anderson is a highly efficient player, and compliments James and the shooters well.

If I were the Spurs, I would just keep doing what I'm doing, and hope that 5 games is enough for the Law of Large numbers to play out (since I surely have a better team than Lebron and the ghosts of great players past).

Lebron was amazing tonight but i think Bosh is the key to the series...Noone on the Spurs can matchup with him...if he continues the shoot the ball well like he has the last 2 games Miami are going to be tough to beat...Also kinda strange they have 2 days rest betwen game 1 and 2 and only 1 day rest for game 3 considering the teams have to travel..def an advanatge for Miami...

I never thought I would hear then when I was watching him stink it up in Denver. He was just slow and lost all of the time. Miami has really turned Birdman into a smart and valuable player.

Manu Ginobili was a late second round pick in '99...watch the announcer butcher his name!
I think Dirk's hair was the best part of that video.

RE: The NBA Thread
Great game last night felt like I was watching Ali vs Frazier. Two greats exchanging blows.

The Spurs Big 3 played well enough to keep them in the game but someone else needs to step up. Nobody else scored more than 10pts.

I was very impressed with lbj hitting 6 jumpshots in a row. Last yr in the finals they were forcing him to shoot 3s. You can't dbl off wade or allen and then with Bosh and Lewis hitting 3s you cant dbl lbj. Pretty impossible to stop.

The spurs role players play better at home idk how they are gona play in Miami?

The spurs' role players are schooling the hell out of the heat.
