I get that. I saw both dunks and read your initial post of him having a running start on one and not in the other.

Geez, is my explanation not enough that I just posted that it was done shoe-less before by the same guy, which was mainly a reply to Namor anyways saying someone is going to steal it for the contest?

You want a damn cookie for pointing out the obvious differences? You mad the thunder was taken away from your post or something? lol8[1].gif

Just the way you worded your post, it sounded like you saw the 2 of them as basically the same.  Like they both had the same degree of difficulty, even though one is much tougher than the other.  Not mad, just nitpicking, I guess.

He still had 0.7 seconds to get ball in and his hand and the ball is right next to rim

hack a deAndre worked too! lol what a game

wild game! don't take it out on Rivers. He had Griffin, Crawford and Barnes out for the game. I thought he did an incredible job of juggling a lineup minus three starters against a really good team. And oh my god, that finish. that paul shot was seriously below the rim ... how much spin did he put on that ball? and i think the biggest impact of the hack-a-jordan was that he was just blanked when it came to that last play. Of course, there were four players for the Clips with plus-37 minutes (including Turkoglu) and DJ had 45. He's still a monster defender and rebounder ... what is he? 5 straight games with more than 15 boards?

there was a really interesting kobe profile on, i believe nba tv, and they asked him which young players had the same burn he did when he was a rookie and he said westbrook.

Did Westbrook put up the best line of all time in a game where his +/- was -12? Shows you how much volatility there can be in +/- game to game.
post #20902 of 27700
Westbrook is the only player since Wilt to have 120 pts/40 rebounds and 30 assists in 3 straight games(total.) Amazing stats!

And he is now leading the league in scoring ahead of Harden.

Will be interesting to know whether that was just a quick decision by Gasol to kick it out to E'Twaun Moore or if it was drawn up by Thibs. Great play.

Had him last season in fantasy. Very dependable player. Now he enters free agency with this.
