The best thing about the decor at The Prime Rib is that every time I go there the exact same 3 or 4 guys are sitting at the bar, looking like central casting big city East Coast Irish machine politicians.
Can't figure out why Celtics would even offer Allen $12 million to take Mickael Pietrus' minutes and feud with Rondo. Can easily figure out why Ray Allen would be happy to give up a few million to go to a team with an offense set up to feature someone with his skills.
Whats up with Mavericks? Don't get it.
Johnson is good for the Nets this year; having a seemingly star-studded team will help them kick off the new arena in Brooklyn. His contract will hurt in the future, but Prokhorov can have him murdered before that becomes an issue.
Jesus, I'm getting old.
This is basically right. [[SPOILER]]
The best teams of the 80's were completely stacked (the 86 Celtics started FOUR Hall of Famers and their NBA Best Sixth Man Bill Walton was another). The lesson is that the NBA is at its best when there are a handful of superteams and a handful of up and comers. The best 20 or so players in the league are playing at a different level than the rest and if those 20 guys are scattered evenly through the league, its just boring. "The Decision" was the best thing that could...
Honestly, what are they supposed to say? "90% of our viewers are idiots who can't really think about basketball at the level of complexity with which it is played and prefer smug morality tales that cast themselves as a hanging judge? And, yeah, the only reason were here is we know how to give them what they want?"
Getting a working visa in China is also not easy and there is currently a big crackdown on foreigners working w/o one.
Seems like if Rajon Rondo plays as well as 1992 MJ then Celtics can hang in, but I think he will not.
