Wow barg is retarded

what wasn't shown was carmelo's three straight late game/OT possessions that consisted of iso/hero ball which resulted in three straight unforced turnovers.

bargs did hit a late game three that seemed like it iced the game, then carmelo went full iso ball too coupled with typical facepalm.giflol8[1].gif 2013/2014 late game knicks plays.

you know its bad when even the msg/knicks announcers are openly dogging their own team.

Clyde has spent most of this season laughing and then saying "what are they doing?!" Woodson needs to go.

Ha ha... what a whipping boy. Mario Chalmers gets shit on by his teammates constantly. I don't watch the Heat that often but every time I do it seems someone on the team lights him up for something.

You got to respect that he didn't flinch and even leaned in more. I would have probably died on the spot.

I do agree with you that Kobe's offensive efficiency will be far more pivotal to the lakers than Young's, though.


Yeah I'm a homer for liking the dude ever since his rookie year? Dudes been on my monitor for fantasy bball purposes and I've always liked his scoring, he is practically a poormans Jamal Crawford. He was the Lakers leading scorer and he was coming off the bench, what the hell else do you want from him? If he fucks up because he missed a lot of shots, that's on D'Antoni to give him the liberty to do so and you just got to live with it. Lakers aren't exactly packing a lot of good players right now, they have a bunch of journeymeans and D-League players and Nick Young is their 3rd best player right now, hell he might even be second depending how Pau feels like that evening.

I don't even know where your hate for the dude that came out of nowhere. lol8[1].gif You trying to take Steves role of goading Laker fans? Because trust me, you don't need to do that. If Swaggy P fucks up, you'll hear it from us Lakers fans first. But right now, they are likely not even gon make the playoffs so really Swaggy P isn't the biggest concern the organization and it's fans have right now.

Are you just getting too bored with the Heat winning too many games and already being awarded the 3rd title before even winning it?

lol, I love how you just lash out like that when someone criticizes your team. I know you're going to come back at me all "I'm chill, I'm not mad" - this same scenario has played out so many times in this thread. I'll just leave that piece alone and let you have the last word on that.

I do have to check myself a bit as I see that he's actually been fairly efficient at scoring this year so far. still not a believer by any means, so we'll see if he can sustain it - I doubt it, for a few reasons. I don't have any personal hate for the dude - he does indeed seem like a positive person who doesn't take himself too seriously. I just don't think he's the type of player to be an effective building block.

lol8[1].gif Man that isn't even lashing out but hey repying "I ain't mad" always starts with someone claiming the other is mad when in reality this is just a discussion. This thread has been pretty calm for the part these days and I ain't even trying to defend a Laker player, I am defending an NBA player who I had no problem with before he even put the purple and gold. That just seems to be something you aren't getting. And you act like you aren't all uppity when the Lebron chokes and everyone insults the menage-a-Heat.

And didn't you start it by calling names like "homer"? You can't even argue that that comes with a negative connotation and then I'm the one who is mad? lol8[1].gif And no, I am not hurt. There I beat you to saying that I was affected by your "words".

We all agreed we expect nothing from him but to score and yet you keep arguing that we should and that we gon be mad at him, etc.. really just sound like you want to just troll Laker fans at this point.

And at this point, I really do not know you are even pursuing it just to say "you Lakers fans will be pissed like Knicks fans were with JR Smith" which we have proven you to be completely wrong already. This dude isn't who the Lakers rely to to win games for them unless the Knicks who somewhat piggybacked Smiths hot streak until he started partying again, or the Linsanity until he got hurt and Melo decided it is his team again and pushed out D'Antoni. And that is no defense to D'Antoni, really wish dude gets fired already.

And who said he was the building block? lol8[1].gif No one sees dude as the future of this franchise, hell dude is coming off the bench. Not really sure where you are getting this stuff from, acting like dude is the future of the Lakers. He's a journeyman and been on what, 4-5 teams already? He is a bench scorer and nothing else, stop putting too much into him, no one else is.

1. LeBron is the biggest bitchy girl in the NBA. Would like to see him do something like that against a Shaquille or Rasheed.
2. Woodson has never been a good coach and he has been regressing all season. Has no concept how to maximize this team's talent.
3. The Knicks, while currently playing JV ball, will be a team to reckon with in the playoffs (barring any Dolan stupidity), in spite of Woodson (and JR).
4. Portland is not as good as their record looks. Lilliard and Aldridge are great but Portland is weak defensively inside, have a weak bench and Aldridge has had a tendency in the past to disappear from some games. I'll need to see them continue this for 50-60 games before I believe they have a legitimate shot at beating a SA or OKC in a series.

he's no JR smith (in reasons to be angry at), but swaggy is actually great when it comes to lower turnovers and offensive efficiency. I also have a sneaking suspicion that his fantasy production turns hater's into believers because fantasy production wise he doesn't rock the boat. swaggy will consistently put up near 15pts with zero turnovers and won't kill your FG% - he takes stupid shots but not enough to kill FG%

plus when he does something "swaggy P" in a facepalm.gif or lol8[1].gif or sometimes even crackup[1].gif way its great theater.

my fantasy stalwart guy who does funny/stupid stuff is Bargnani. He has been great on fantasy this year and was on the waiver wire the whole time. but barge will put up 15pts/two 3pt shots made/6rbs/2blocks a ton of the time. plus it gives me a reason to watch the LOL knicks while channel flipping.

Woodsons only good season was when he did d'antonis gogo 3 bomb system only people actually hustled (if we can ignore his time with the cavs where basically the strat was give the ball to Lebron)

Also IMO d'antoni's a good coach. He's doing a great job with the lakers considering his best players are injured or regressing and he's coaching a bunch of lottery washouts

I yelled "SWAGAAAY!" at the TV when that happened. my wife was annoyed and said: "I thought you hate the Lakers." I tried to explain but she wouldn't understand...

the guy who annoys me is Wade. its like everyone, fans and media cheer him and are amazed when he actually tries hard in a "see wade is awesome.. if he's trying!" way. then he'll run to the ref and point at his red forearm (last night) like he's the nba's biggest victim of non calls.
post #13139 of 27250
The Heat are victims of some pretty hard fouls. For their players' safety, the refs need to realize this sooner rather than later.
