re: Wilt Chamberlain's unstoppable fadeaway - jturn17
[quote]Rather than change the no help defensive rules the NBA tried to neutralize Chamberlain by widening the lane to make him set up on the low post farther from the basket.[/quote]Watching the video it was funny how little attempt there was by defenders to push him out of that position prior to ca...

re: Official Penny / MJ Stock Thread - jturn17
For those that are in BAA, 2Q production numbers are probably going to be released next week (They said early July). Looking for increased productivity out of the Namoya mine. Last quarter they produced ~45k ounces with Namoya at roughly 33% capacity. Need to increase that significantly to show that...

re: Name your top 10 SGs of all time - jturn17
Any list that doesn't have MJ/Kobe/West/Wade in the top 4 is worthless. I also don't really care how you rank Kobe/West/Wade. They're all great. I'm fine with this one: [quote]1. Jordan 2. Kobe 3. DWade 4. West 5. Drexler 6. Gervin 7. Iverson 8. TMac 9. Vince Carter 10. Ray A...

[quote]how? I may not be understanding the criteria. he's only been voted an All Star starter once, and been on 1 All NBA team. can he still achieve the remaining criteria after he signs the extension but before it kicks in? [/quote]Yes, it'll just revert to the normal max if he doesn't reach it....

[quote]Yeah, the only thing I've seen is the Fox Soccer tweet......not looking all that reliable at this moment at least. [/quote]Because it's not. Btw, City sold Rekik to Marseille for around 4m pounds. No word on whether there is a buy back clause, though I read they wanted one. Not a terri...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - jturn17
It's fox soccer citing the Sport article from yesterday. I'll wait until something real is announced. Edit: A less talked about point of the Pogba transfer is that, I'm pretty sure he's homegrown in England from his time at United. Chelsea and City will pay him and Juve whatever it takes....

re: Scottie Pippen says he was 'LeBron James before LeBron James' - jturn17
[quote]Pippen averaged 16 points and 5 assist with MJ. If Lebron played with MJ he would average around 20/10. Lebron would have been a triple double machine [/quote]What's your point? Scottie didn't say LeBron wasn't better, just that he's the closest player to LeBron's skill set to come before hi...

re: Scottie Pippen says he was 'LeBron James before LeBron James' - jturn17
[quote]Scottie made his impact on the game for sure, but he didnt have nearly the hand in the offense as Lebron does[/quote]That doesn't mean their skill sets aren't similar. It just means Pippen played with Jordan. I have no problem with his comparison. Scottie had a very diverse skillset, just lik...

re: Can someone explain the highly compensated employee 401k rule - jturn17
[quote]The HCE test is designed to encourage employers to make their plans attractive to lower income employees. Typically they have to do that by adding money from the employers end rather than asking the employee to take away from their wages with things like safe harbour contributions, good match...
