If anything AI is waayyy OVER appreciated...give me Tony Parker or Manu over him anyday...hell Manu has made a living off the bench, AI REFUSED to come off the bench, he'd rather retire...it was beneath him. :rolleyes:...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Ummm...sorry but he doesn't get extra points for being tiny. It's a big man's game, if you're small and you can hang that's fine...but it's just funny everyone using the word sacrifice and effort...how about a little sacrifice of the ball and a little effort to not be a horrible teammate?

He's actually right. Sure, Iverson busted his tail every night shooting 22 times, but that doesn't mean that dikembe wasn't working just as hard defending the basket, or eric snow wasn't working just as hard locking down and distributing. Iverson is a posterboy for a horrible phase in the NBA...th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Those sixers teams were actually pretty good considering how weak the east was at the time. They seem weak to the casual fan because they lacked flashy scorers (besides AI)...this was done on purpose. Basically, they had AI the one man offensive threat and then surrounded him by great fitting role...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It's like as soon as someone isn't in the spotlight they are forgotten...Tim Duncan's career is what Kevin Durant is praying to have! Yet let's laugh at the thought of taking the guy who has accomplished great things for a decade and a half over the guy who is hot at the moment... :rolleyes:...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Ummm....yeah. Tim Duncan is BY FAR the most underrated player of his generation. He's won 4 titles, and has done it with multiple players. He benefits from a GREAT coach and admiral/manu/parker...but the fact is he is just as good if not better than Malone, Garnett, and Barkley. Today's generati...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Jordan picks Kobe over lebron - tigerbait4444 on 2/14/13 at 6:37 pm
Bottom line...LBJ may develop a consistent offensive move that will allow him to prolong his career ala Kareem or MJ, but if you were to take his current game and remove his quickness no one would fear him. There are tons of guys in the league with his size and strength...what sets him apart is his...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

[quote] He's already a better outside shooter at this point in his career than Jordan[/quote] Lol, no. He gets great looks because teams dare him to shoot so he won't dunk at will.

re: MJ versus Lebron - One on one... - tigerbait4444 on 2/14/13 at 6:21 pm
He hates playing Melo because he gives him tons of space and dares him to shoot. That is the plan that kept Lebron from winning rings up until last year. The Heat finally corrected this by putting him on the block waayyy more. By doing this, he forces double teams or gets a look close to the rim....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Jordan picks Kobe over lebron - tigerbait4444 on 2/14/13 at 6:08 pm
LBJ fans are going to be really upset when they realize that once he isn't the most explosive player in the game he tanks...fast. Mj's game could survive losing a step. For the last half of his career he played "old man" ball. Angles, fakes, and jumpers. Lebron is the best in the world because h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Lebron is the best - tigerbait4444 on 2/13/13 at 5:12 pm
Tough to compare eras. Lbj is the best athlete the league has ever seen. He cost himself quite a bit by waiting 8 seasons to find himself as a Player. He should have been in the post years ago. Too many jumpers cost him multiple rings early on IMO. Gonna come down to his ability to recreate him...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
