They are young, and Paul George and Lance aren't erratic, they are tough. George has some balls and leadership skills.
Hibbert is a pussy though.

but have mercy and don't bring Scola into this, he played with Saski Baskonia in the Euroleague final in the 2000–01 season, he won also silver in FIBA world championship in 2002(beating usa in the process) and has olympic gold from Athens in 2004. If there's a grizzled vet on Pacers it's Luis.

cmon man. we had that yesterday.
and according to most everyone involved, he won't be moving the team. main reason -- he's got a $2 billion nut and he needs a major market television contract.

Part 1 was just a joke. He probably wont move the team, although he will get pressured to do so from his hometown.

I think he'll be the eventual buyer. I just hope he doesn't turn them into Windows 8.

it's going to be very complicated. that is one argument that is being made (by his wife). he still insists he won't sell. but i think it all becomes moot after the nba governor's vote. if they strip him of the team, he won't have any choice but to accept that 1,500% return on his (borrowed money) investment.

Balmer said he won't move the team because it will be "value destructive". That didn't stop him from running Microsoft since his whole tenure there was "value destructive".

Yeah, 2 billion cash is a pretty nice "punishment."

who knows what's going to happen? Though I'd put my money on the nba instead of demented 80-year-old.

And what about Stiviano?

With a face that could stop a moving train, she should be able to leverage her "fame" into something.

At the very least Ballmer should give her a couple of very high up, crappy seats to his Clippers and tell her to bring whoever she wants to the games.

She looks like she already stopped a train with that face

Lance has already done three things this series that would gotten him knocked the fuck out in any league other than the National Pussy Basketball Association.

Lol at Haslem threatening to fuck him up from the sideline. UD don't play

Lance Stephenson is the grandmaster troll of all professional athletes right now.

I thought I saw Hibbert selling beer in the lower stands.

Anyone else see him, or is he a no show tonight?
