http://www.espn.com/blog/collegebasketba...point-line

Quote:Bo Kimble has the all-time high for a season in the three-point era -- 35.3 PPG (1,131 points in 32 games for Loyola Marymount in the 1989-90 season) -- and that’s still more than 200 points shy of Maravich’s top tally.

Let’s say Maravich, who died of a heart attack when he was just 40, would have made one 3-pointer in each of his 31 games in the 1969-70 season in addition to his 522 field goals that season. That’s an extra 93 points -- not a major difference. But there’s also a chance that the 3-point line would have had a dramatic effect on his game.

What if he'd made four or five per contest that season? Would Maravich have averaged 50 points per game? Seems feasible for a man who scored 61 points or more in four contests.




Pistol Pete, Jerry West, and Wilt Chamberlain are the 3 guys I would love to see time travel into today's NBA. All three would be unstoppable.

Raps make trade for 34 year old big man Marc Gasol.

They gave up a lot, they are obviously looking to win this year or bust - when Kawhi leaves us.

And whats with these commentators, chick host, 2 ex nba alpha brothas, and some high pitch voice dork white guy with a hankerchief.

Chamberlain unquestionably. From what I understand, modern athletes are larger, quicker, stronger, and with more science behind their training, and it would be interesting to see if the other two would get shut down today by these factors, or would find a way to win.

The raptors are good this year, probably need an injury or 2 on the warriors though

I don't think that's true. I think they leveled off late 90s/early 2000s on speed, strength and size but the science is more for holding onto those factors and lengthening careers and recovering from injuries quicker.

I think with the rule changes for less physical basketball and if anything players lack a lot of fundamentals and sports intelligence than they used to. Pistol Pete and Jerry West would be fine. Think about how even Steven Nash would be a lot better right now and he didn't even play long ago.

They didn't give up much....

CJ miles is literally just a body, has played like trash all year long with reduced minutes. Nobody going to miss him.

Delon Wright is our third string PG, who is up for a new contract and we weren't going to pay him what he wants.

JV is one of my favorite Raps ever, and if you view the trade as JV&pick for Gasol it is an upgrade. JV is good but Gasol does EVERYTHING JV does at a higher level with more intangibles such as better passing and better ball IQ. Gasol can be counted in in a deep playoff series to produce for you.

Raptors easily won the trade. I expect Gasol to play more motivated with the potential of getting a ring. Big Spanish community in Toronto will also take care of him.

One thing also is that the NBA is an old man league and the teams who won championships are generally always the oldest rosters. Raptors trading for a hard knock veteran is what we need. Gasol knows how to win and in tandem with Kawai, Green, Lowry, and Ibaka that is a starting lineup that all have at minimum, conference final experience or better. Out of the top 4 teams in the East we have the most collective experience amongst our starters; this will come up huge.

Raptors now needs depth as we dumped Monroe as well. If we can get a scorer and a PG of the waiver wire then we are fine.

What would take the forum to the next level?

The ability to like your own posts.

No one believes me, but giving yourself a standing ovation for your own post is extremely gratifying behavior.

I must agree with debeguguiled.

I'm new to the forum and I find it a little boring how you cannot like your own comment...

But how about Derrick Rose not making it to the All Star roster. Disappointed.

Ja Rule taking heat on social media after NBA halftime show


http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/26070...-half-show

Quote:MILWAUKEE -- Rapper Ja Rule is taking heat on social media after problems with his halftime show during Saturday's Timberwolves-Bucks game.

Videos posted online show Ja Rule had sound problems at the beginning of his performance. At one point he said, "Are we ready?" then said, "I guess not," before his music eventually started.

Another video shows Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo taking warm-up shots while Ja Rule was still performing.

Ja Rule responded to critics on Twitter, saying his sound "didn't come on when it was supposed to" but he "rocked." When the Timberwolves' official Twitter account mocked Ja Rule, he responded by cursing the team:


Ja Rule has been the subject of ridicule for his role in the failed Fyre Festival in the Bahamas. He recently told TMZ that he plans to create another music festival.

It's everything I hoped it would be, and more.


A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.

A true friend is the most precious of all possessions and the one we take the least thought about acquiring.

I will call it now,

Golden State vs Raptors

Raptors in seven games. Raptors will make history. There bench looks really solid with the addition of Lin and Gasol.

The only thing holding the Raptors back is their Euro coach "Nurse", he keeps messing with the lineup. He needs to match Lin with Gasol.

I think letting JV, go will hurt. Gasol looks really slow, but he can get the job done.

If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of.

Assuming no injuries, I still think the Rockets have the best chance at beating the Warriors. The Raptors would beat the Rockets though, but I dont see them beating the Warriors.

If the Nuggets can secure home court for the western conference final I think they have a decent chance at making the championship.
Only 1 win behind and just getting their full team together for the first time this season.
