NBA 2014-2015 Season Thread - Page 954
No hate on Reggie, I specifically picked his name and the others to prove my point - those guys are all admired by a lot of people, including me. But they aren't despised as much for showing the same qualities (well I'm sure Reggie still is in New York)
Every player does it, lebron is not above average in being a dirty player. He flops too much, but that's about it.
How he left Cleveland wasn't classy at all, but face it fans are big assholes and they will stab you in the back
once when you fall. He made a good choice for himself, he executed it badly but w/e
I only root vs his teams because since he came to the league he was so hyped and
favored and so heavily marketed by the NBA it made me puke. I felt like NBA was trying too hard to sell
him as next Jordan(which he is and lived up to, so grats for him). It made me happy whenever he lost,
because I like to root for the Davids(besides that phony uptight david stern) and i was like yeahhh in yo face NBA!
Help me find a better word for people who seem to just be waiting around for the Heat to fail, just so they can gloat about it, and I'll use that word. Some of them don't even appear to have a team affiliation either.
Been a So FL resident for 15 years and a Heat fan almost all of those years. The Alonzo Mourning (schoolmate and class act) teams won me over, and I've stayed around for the ride ever since. Have a share of a pool of season tickets through my company since 2003, although this year I chose not to participate for the first time since then.
Alonzo was so underrated. or at least as much as a HOF player can be underrated. When you think about he went up against almost nightly, how he was undersized in all those matchups and yet still kicked ass, intimidating presence. In today's league he'd probably average about 30 pts a game. Such a nice guy too.
