NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1569

Cuttino Mobley had to retire from the NBA because of a heart condition. I dunno if playing in the Drew League is a good idea for him. Also, Michael Finley is in that vid at the end.

Why do NBA players use the word "blessed" so much?
post #23523 of 27201
Cause "damned" is too much of a downer.

"Lucky", because that's what they are. As a body of talent, these kinds of guys will always rise to the top, but there are thousands who never get there who had just as much ability.

but there's a difference. "lucky" signifies that you are an accident of nature; "blessed" signifies that God has deemed you special enough for rewards. spoken as a veteran of many athletic/christianity wars back in the 70s and 80s. can't tell you how many times a high school athlete told me he'd been chosen by god for his talent. always wanted to tell him to check back in 4 years when he was pumping gas at the Shallowater chevron.

That was sort of my point. An athlete that thinks "God" has blessed him with a career in the NBA is more delusional than the average religious nutter. Jeremy Lin might actually top this list.

don't know the particulars of lib-sanity, but on principle I would point out the difference between being grateful and feeling anointed. I think the first is appropriate, where the other is obnoxious, no matter what deity you choose.

Srsly? I thought it was common knowledge that he is "The Chosen 1"!

Yes I have heard of that nickname but did not realize it was tattooed on his body. A little too much I think.

He is Chosen....to have a losing record in the Finals

The greatest thing about being young before Lebron's time is...when you're a young dumb fuck, surrounded by young dumb fuck friends thinking the thoughts that dumb fucks think...tattoo parlors weren't on every street corner

And it seems those are the shops most of them go to. Why, if you've got basically endless cash, can't you buy some decent ink? Most NBA tats are like a step or two above some jail house Bic pen shit.
