Definitely UGA 03! First time Game Day had been in forever. I was a junior at LSU and it was the first time that there were thousands of people on campus on Friday night. We partied all night on the old golf course and there were about 2000 other students with us. Slept for about 45 minutes and t...

| More Sports Board|| re: MJ Resume Through Age 29 vs LeBron Resume Through Age 29 - ThePistol on 6/15/14 at 11:11 pm|
I wonder how many finals appearances MJ would have had if he would have teamed up with Hakeem and Barkley in 1991 (7 years into their career)?
LBJ gets a pass for losing in 07. It was a great fear to that team to the finals. He was terrible in 11 and that should effect his legacy. He was good i...
| More Sports Board|| re: Why wasn't LeBron getting treatment on the bench? - ThePistol on 6/6/14 at 8:14 am|
I have a few questions regarding LeBron last night. None of it has to do with his toughness or inability to play through cramps. Cramps are debilitating and an athlete cannot play through them. However here are the questions I have:
Why did LeBron, with his history of cramping, come out in th...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Will Ryno return to pre-injury form? - ThePistol on 4/24/14 at 9:09 pm|
Ryno should have a full recovery from this surgery. I don't think that Manning is a good comparison for his recovery. Manning plays football in which he takes approximately 30 big hits a season, where as in basketball you may take 5 hits like that all year. Second, Manning throws a tonof passes each...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Ryno to have surgery - ThePistol on 3/25/14 at 3:05 pm|
It all depends on the type of surgery that he has. If he has a microdiscectomy procedure (where part of the disc is dissected out to alleviate pressure on the nerve), then he could be ready to go for next season. If he has to have a fusion (like Manning) then he would be out longer. Since they we...

For me, it's not blind faith. It's simple actually. When healthy, he is a much better basketball player than Rivers and Morrow and he is under contract to play for us. I believe that we will be a MUCH better team if he is healthy. I care about winning and feel him playing gives this roster the b...

I get that he wasn't what anyone was hoping for last year. He was obviously out of shape and wasn't ready to be a leader on a below average team. Despite all of that, he averaged 17 a game and was the team's leading scorer. I don't see why th...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Tyreke Interview with Hoopshype - ThePistol on 10/3/13 at 9:33 am|
I remember rumors of possibly needing microfracture surgery but then that was refuted. I think those rumors were brought up because no one could figure out why it was taking him so long to return. That is why I said it has been a confusing injury, to say the least. I would say that it was a littl...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Tyreke Interview with Hoopshype - ThePistol on 10/3/13 at 9:16 am|
What injury did he have that has ended careers? He definitely has had one of the more confusing injuries that I can remember, I'll give you that. Whether it be misdiagnosis, shoddy rehab, or lack of an effort on his part, something has not added up. But it seems that he still had a good first step ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Tyreke Interview with Hoopshype - ThePistol on 10/3/13 at 8:56 am|
I am giving EG one more shot. I hope he has matured mentally and is healthy physically. In the NBA you have to have elite talent and he possesses that, when healthy. I think it is obvious that he still had a lot of maturing to do before he was going to be a leader at this level. That is one of t...

The biggest problem with this team is youth and lack of playing together. Davis is our alpha dog and he is only in year 2. It is Jrue and Tyreke's first year with the club. Ryno and EG haven't played a full season together. 7-8 seed is right where we should be with this group and then we assess w...
