This is a guy behaving in his contract year. Whoever is dumb enough to pay Whiteside is in for plenty of trouble.

I'm sure if knicks were playing like the warriors you'd claim them as your team.

The ESPN Top 10 List … I know, I know. But it's up so might as well consider. Thoughts?

1. Jordan
2. Kareem
3. LeBron
4. Magic
5. Wilt
6. Bird
7. Russell
8. Duncan
9. Shaq
10. Hakeem

The comments in the articles leading up to the top 10 were kind of interesting though. Quotes from former players, coaches, etc.


That 4th quarter from GSW last night… wow. After being tied with Houston at 93 (IIRC) at the end of the 3rd, Warriors go on a 13-2 run or some shit… Curry hits a 30 footer or two and yeah that's the game. Unbelievable.

First of all FTFY… second from your post, you clearly haven't been paying attention. I have hometown MLB and NFL teams but no hometown NBA team. I don't like the Clippers and Russell is a Buckeye so I've kinda adopted the Lakers because I like basketball… but I have a connection with the Warriors so I watch and root for them as well. Ultimately, I don't hold any inviolable NBA allegiances as in my mind that needs to be a native, home town thing or something that develops over a long period of time.

and yes LeBron is a douche… a massive fucking douche.

I mean it's pretty ironic that during a GSW game (a team playing great basketball and team basketball to boot) all I see during the breaks are LBJ commercials talking about how "it's all about getting one for the Land" (which I'm assuming is idiot for Cleveland).

Really? Well perhaps it's all about championships… unless it happens to conflict with my getting paid to make commercials about possibly winning said championships.
So half of your post telling me I'm wrong is a diatribe about how Lebron is a douche lol8[1].gif

I'm perfectly willing to accept that you actually have team allegiances, but perhaps my misconception isn't because I haven't been paying attention, but because of what you constantly post about.

I think you've got a case of the sour grapes because no one in LA has won a championship in so long.

Nor will the Dodgers this year- both AZ and SF are better ball clubs.

But you do have the best weather. smile.gif

Not really hockey weather, though.

Shaq on that list is comedy. I'd probably move Wilt to 2. Dr J probably belongs someone on there, and so does either Stockton/Steve Nash.

Understood. But no it's not "just" why I'm here…. I often post about the games and sport in general. And to be accurate… I just said LBJ is a douche in that post, but the example is really pretty apropos of his attitude/mindset and not indicative of douchebaggery.

He's stated multiple times how much his goal is to make a billion dollars, be a billionaire, basically become the NBA version of Jay-Z. Well while he's talking about all that shit and making commercials about all that shit, and going on on and about how cool he is about all that shit … I see Curry and the Warriors actually doing it (at least the on-court portion).

Some people want to win.
Some want a billion dollars.

Jason Kidd was better all around. He belongs there. Bill, and Bird ain't top 10.

Putting LeBron on that list when he's years from retiring makes it difficult to judge when everyone else in the Top 10 is retired or very close to retirement.

 

If he retired at the end of this season, would he still be #3? I recall that Dirk was considered the #1 PF of all time right when he won his championship. Duncan didn't really cement that label for himself until the Spurs did well again in 2013/2014 and he took the spotlight away from Dirk.

You must be high as fuck right now. So uber clutch … so fucking money. Career numbers and Bird ain't top 10?

Certainly makes it tricky. I think it's safe to say however, he's not going to go all Jordan and win 3 more championships.

I talked about this a few pages ago because a good friend was one of the voters but they weren't just ranking career accomplishments they were also told to consider peak value. That's why Curry was top 25, for example, despite just being 27 and starting his prime.
