i hate these stupid ass interviews with celebrities. shut up and let me watch some shitty basketball by some of my favorite players

i think i care more about who is an all star than the all star game itself

the West MVP should be Carmelo Anthony's bricks.

If I hear the "Mecca of Basketball" again, I'm going to lose it.

What if someone says, "Mecca of Basketball" ironically?
post #20515 of 27353
Actual words from Steve Kerr:

"Guys, enjoy tonight. We're in the Mecca."


You can tell he was seconds away from bursting out in laughter

its a weird misnomer. there has been traditionally a ton of NBA talent that has come out of the NYC metropolitan area, but that doesn't mean the Knicks or Nets are really part of the "mecca" equation other than Madison Square Garden being in NYC.

its also kind of funny how there are probably more notable historic nba moments involving opposing team/players at MSG than actual knick players.

I miss edmorel. I remember the last time this conversation came up, he defended this by saying "see!!...players going off at MSG is headline stuff cuz it's happening in New York the Mecca!!" followed by everyone saying "Uhm...yeah but it's never done by actual Knicks players..."
post #20518 of 27353
Yeah I thought it was called the Mecca because it's where young basketball players came to play and train with the best
post #20519 of 27353
new york is totally the mecca of basketball in that their home teams and players are shit at basketball tho

didn't watch the game except the end, but i hear there were some pretty good highlights at least



it's actually really sad that lebron will never do the dunk contest. but every now and then you get one of these, and you know he would be incredible in it. iono bout beating lavine, but he'd be amazing




seriously what is curry even doing in this??




omg dirk w/ the vince celebrations. after the game someone asked him about this lob and he goes, "hey, that's what i do."




god russ is the best.
