Ryan Anderson is turning into a fantasy God
Ryan Anderson is turning into a fantasy God
I hate Anderson....and redick
Damn... we just got shelled at the end of this quarter.
Standing next to Howard illustrates how skinny JaVale's legs are. He's got a surprisingly strong upper body for how long his arms are, but his base is too slender to be a dominant post scorer.
Also what's with all of the Van Dykes on our team? Wall, Crawford, JaVale, Singleton, NY, Blatche, Booker, Mack, Mason, and of course Shard's magnificent example--most of the team sports one. Did Maurice Evans, Seraphin, and Jan Vesely miss the memo? Can Vesely grow facial hair yet?
Turiaf's full beard is also impressive.

Ugh! What a ****ing ticky tack BS over the back call on JaVale. Dwight's practically allowed to grab you by the throat and slam you down to push off to get rebounds and Javale can stretch over you with the slightest brush and get tagged. This is what I mean about getting no respect.
Wall didn't score that half and they dont even have nelson...
Probably belongs in the NBA thread but Durant deserves mention in here too since I know most of us are fans of him.
Gotta love this guy. That's the heart of a competitor and the pride and the feistiness is Jordanesque.Quote:
Kevin Durant disses Blake Griffin dunk
"I have no appreciation for it at all," said Perkins' Thunder teammate Kevin Durant. "It was a layup, I think. He threw the ball in and got fouled and made his free throw, so it was three points at the end of the day, no matter how it happened, how it went in the basket. I really wasn't impressed. He finished it. So what? We've moved on."
Durant wasn't surprised the play gained so much attention.
"I wasn't surprised because Blake is a poster child," Durant said. "He dunks the ball a lot and makes spectacular plays. If it wasn't against us, maybe I'd say it was a good play, but it was against us, so it was a bad play. I have nothing against Blake, don't get me wrong. But it was against us, so I've got to stick up for my teammate."
Plus I think he said what most of us are thinking. The NBA and by extension have ****ing crammed Blake Griffin down our throats to the point we're choking on him. We get it. He's a huge talent with potential to be a true great but come on already. His farts don't smell like roses. And he didn't deserve to win ROTY as a sophomore... still bitter about that. And he sure as **** didn't deserve to win that dunk contest over Javale or even DeRozan really... also bitter about that. It was a cool "dunk" even though he got stoned by Perkins and barely got to the rim but it's not like it was some once in a season amazing event like ESPN made it out to be.
What a terrible game for Wall so far.
Even though it went for us, I don't like the Draconian technical foul rules. Seems petty that Dwight was T'd for that. Foul Karma?
****ing Ryan Anderson. Five threes now.
Orlando is not a good team. Let the threes go cold and they've got nothing despite the fact Dwight creates oceans of space for the rest of their players. Let them play against a quality perimeter defending team and they're screwed. They'll just foul Dwight his awful FT shooting will bury the team late. They wouldn't get out of the first round against the Sixers or Pacers...

Yeah because big baby's fat ass would have beaten Singleton down the floor from midcourt...
Interesting how there has been so much mind-changing from the ref's every time they've seemed to want to make a call in our favor.

Jesus Chirst the magic are nothing but Howard and 3's. I can't wait till he leaves and they are left with nothing
Crawford is just not going to go a game without taking at least three or four terrible shots is he?
Feels like the bench's mojo is slipping away starting with Singleton losing himself on the court and stepping out of bounds, Mack missing a well cushioned shot from eight feet after Mcgee nails the pick, then giving up the three next position trying to get the swipe on Howard, and then Crawford jacking up a horrible three.
It's sequences like those (their frequency) that are the reasons why we lose. We get into a funk and just tailspin.
