Look..... I wish I knew what to say. The league is a different entity than it was 10 years ago clearly as a result of James. You knew I wasn’t a fan. so now with a ring and looking good again, this Lakers fan of over 40 years warns my heart. What is a huge positive is the team chemistry that I see he has instilled. His team mates are animated on the sidelines and I believe they have finally not only found a good coach but so also one who is respected by Le Bron and the team. Lastly, the deep friendship between him and AD has only served to make him a mentor to AD as team heir apparent. The past 10-15 years have been nothing but horrible worsened only by the front office antics. So truly there seems to be a calm with the team that I haven’t seen since Showtime and the Magic era.

Mike, I said last year that IMO it was the Clippers to lose as I felt they were the best team. I never saw and still don’t see that camaraderie on the Clippers bench. I still feel that KL is not a team leader. He’s there for one purpose only and that was the same purpose LeBron was brought to the Lakers. IMO PG is the better team leader but I don’t see him taking control. I maintain that there will always be player animosity when it comes to load mgt and KL If he’s the goto guy, he’s got to learn to be a leader And although it’s too soon for me to say, from what I’ve seen I’m not yet sold on Lue
Great posting, Steve :cool:

Notables on the head case list to have won a ring or 2 are Andrew Bynum, Rasheed Wallace, Ron Artest, Dennis Rodman, Jason Williams, Vernon 'Mad Max' Maxwell, and J.R. Smith, who just won another ring last year.

All the Nets need now to complete the trifecta, is to trade for Westbrook. :D
Now we will have one big 'happy' reunion + Mr. Awal, flat earther, pyrotechnical, sideshow Kyrie Irving.

PS. I'm always curious if the sage burning sets off the fire alarms/sprinklers in each arena. And why does each team/arena owner allow such an act?
Now the Nets "only" need to trade Kyrie Irving for Westbrook.
OKC 2021, only that they are now called Nets :p

It's a good time to kick out mysterious KI for Westbrook, a good alibi. KI can't fit with any team, apparently. :D
I had the exactly same thought while catching up today ;)

Anytime, Christoph.
I vaguely remember White Chocolate's career, but I do recall bits of his showboat type kind of play. Did someone mention he's also a Pistol Pete reincarnation? :D I read too that Jason is a close friend of Shaq as they were neighbors.
They played together in Miami when White Chocolate got his ring iIrc

I also remember Spree as a tragic talent :oops:

Stephen A on the mystery of Kyrie.

These pundits are way to powerful, IMHO :oops:
How come they can publicly "demand" or "force" some one to retire or even worse, to be fired!!
This is not OK, even when it concerns Kyrie :rolleyes:

Even though I made fun of Kyrie's recent behaviors, I really wish he would just step out of basketball for a while and get professional help. The nets have plenty of talent now to possibly make it to the top seed in the Eastern Conference and he can return to the team when he is nice and ready.

Kyrie's recent behavioral change reminds me of Antonio Brown during the tail-end of his stay as a Pittsburg Steelers before they kicked him out of the team. Antonio was a perennial all-pro, all-league wide receiver and was on his way to the NFL hall of fame. He later admits to his bipolar issue and starts receiving treatments and medicines and he is now playing in the playoffs with Tom Brady.

I'll add "Birdman" Chris Anderson.

I watched the Marbury documentary on Netflix. Dang, that was a heck of a meltdown.

Fortunately he was still able to pick up the pieces and ride into the sunset.

Jack, reason I know something bout him is because he was yet another 'star' player who was signed by the Celtics in his twilight years and I remember in his first game at the Garden the fans welcomed him with loud cheers each time he hit a shot. Looking up on his highlights showed us an incredible talent who could do a lot of things that today's players can do. How bout that midcourt jump shot on the first reel. That's a 6 point play. :D

I don't think Kyrie has mental issues, he rather gives me the impression of "just" being plain stupid :oops:

I disagree. He is in sore need of medical help with an intervention. How does "conduct detrimental to the team sound" With Harden now there Kyrie could become expendable but which GM in his right mind would trade assets for Kyrie

Celtics playing their first game after 3 postponed games, with only 8 players cleared to play. Surprisingly, they had stayed tied for first place in the East. o_O Postponements may be a good thing. :D
