Women file most divorces anyway. It doesn't matter who files. Often divorce attorneys advise women to file, somehow they believe it gets them the upper hand.

If they are smart they won't document anything in their filings and just put it down to irrec differences. They probably have a settlement worked out in advance. If she was cheating, she'll likely get significantly less than half.

as i've said many times here, the spurs are my second-favorite team in teh nba. and since my favorite sucked wind this year ... GO STEVIE B! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif honestly, i thought they'd have a tougher time with Memphis. but much love to pop and duncan even if parker is an annoying little shit. they remind me of the lakes' good days under jackson, when everybody knew their role, knew where they were going to get the shots and then ran the offense to the open man. pretty basketball. and they've only gotten stronger as the playoffs have rolled along. really hope they can pull this one off.

Miami going to beat Indiana and LBJ going to reaffirm his dominance in the game by besting SA after their previous finals meet.

Fwiw no one showed up during the WCF series on the Memphis team IMO

Kind of mad that Westbrook was injured.
Finals would be more interesting if it was okc vs Miami compared to spurs vs miami

I disagree. Heat would beat OKC easily-even easier than last year.

OKC has no post presence, just 5 perimeter players which is exactly what the Heat like to see.

A spurs/heat matchup would be very intriguing to me-especially a well rested Spurs team. Not sure what would happen.

No one is even considering them losing a game, mych less the series, to the Pacers or to the Knicks. As a matter of fact, I think if the Jordan Bulls were still playing people would still be drinking the LeBron kool aid and picking the Heat. The Heat are a very beatable team. They have no bench. They have no interior D. Wade is playing hurt. Doesn't mean they are going to lose but its not the cakewalk that people are making it out to be. The Pacers will test them. They will put Heat bodies on the floor on drives. LeBron, much like Melo, has been "raised" on this pussy league play of now where they think they cannot be touched and both lose it when the defender gets very physical with them (won't mention the Pacers or Knicks records against the Heat this year). A 7 game physical series is not where the Heat excel. Anyway, not going to say anything else on the matter, I am more worried about the Bulls right now as they play that physical style that I love but will hate if the Knicks have to play them. Everyone just keep taking the David Stern mandated blue pill, the Heat are the best, most complete team, they will steam roll everyone. Lebron is better than Jordan. The Heat are a dynasty etc etc.........

Two days ago on espn.com, with the Heat up 2-1 (and the 4 time champion Spurs having clinched), "are the Heat the best team ever" front page article confused.gif Am I not smoking the right stuff? The Heat have won 1 chip. No one is talking about the Spurs being a dynasty or having a chance against the Heat, even though they are going for their 5th chip in 12-13 years. No one gave the Pacers a chance in this series, and they could easily be up 3-1 right now. What is it with the league/sportswriters and LeBron???? Jordan was a better player (and an uninjured Kobe is a better player) and teh Jordan teams were better than this Heat team but its like people see this Heat team as gods or something. Very confusing. They may still very well win the whole thing but if you listen to the media, the question is not whether they would win but rather if they were going to sweep all the series.

^i had to listen to the nYC media hype up the knicks lol8[1].gif a little too much this year. that coupled with lakers news galore (even till now unfortunately), I'm happy the pacers are making a series.

The heat won 27 in a row this year. I think they are something like 45-4 in their last 49 games played. They have a player that has won 4 MVPs (by a landslide no less). They must win the chip to be considered one of the all time best teams, but they hype machine isn't that far off, only because I think the pacers are a vastly underrated team as well.

Lebron right now is a better more complete player than kobe was in his prime.

we might actually be looking at a pacers team that could have dynasty potential as well - especially with the break up of the OKC big three. so if the heat beat the pacers and spurs - they deserve the accolades.

that being said - I hate the heat and especially hate how fucking floppy-faggoty the heat's big 3 can be (which is weird since lebron and wade are also some of the toughest players in the league). but haters are going to hate while they may keep on winning. I love to hate watch the heat on the off chance that they might lose (2011 was a delicious finals to watch).

I filed both times. So did most of my friends.

One would think.

No one cares about cheating because 70% of married people cheat.

It took a while for me to warm to Parker.

He seems arrogant- but that childlike, happy look on his face is because he LOVES what he's doing.

I am.

LBJ is a better player than anyone else in the league.

Take him away, and the Spurs are a much better TEAM.

That's Pop's job and he's pretty good at it.

My dad and I watched PBF from the beginning of his career. He wasn't always a gigantic douchebag asshole. I'm still a fan. I think if tim duncan and the spurs turned heel and started being total d-bag assholes on purpose (like PBF did about 10 years ago) the spurs would be the bball version of pbf.

this Miami heat big three era is more like prime mike tyson. they look/are unbeatable when they have momentum, but size smarts and teamwork are their achilles heel.

maybe that makes the post 2007 lakers the manny pacquiao of the nba.
post #11922 of 27226
Here's the way I see it:

Duncan> Bosh
James>>>Leonard
Wade>>>Green >Ginobili
Parker>>>Chalmers
Haslem=Splitter

Defense Miami>Spurs
Bench Miami<< Spoelstra<<
Pretty even.

It's not just the media, Vegas had the Heat as something like 15-6 favorites.

The "zomg greatest ever" is just the usual media hype machine being applied.

You mean over his career? Maybe. Right now, there's no way Kobe is better than Lebron.

Yeah, what Steve's responding to here bears no resemblance whatsoever to either the letter of the law or the common practical dynamics.

What other experience would I have to go on?

Do I have to Google this?

I hate to do that to all of you AGAIN.
