If you like coats made out of women's dresses.

^ lol… They were all pretty bad.

@idfnl The first picture doesn't even show how terrible this jacket actually is (DG far right). It's not a rider, but has some angled front with a belt and what appears to be a "beaver tail" panel on the back. What a fucking waste of leather …. I actually prefer Drake's stupid "Farewell Mamba" coat… at least it had a purpose, albeit a short-lived one.

Actually yes … should have just gone all-in on a cool GSW jacket for the ASG.



Westbrook's 1960's sofa suit was unsurprisingly ugly… no more words for this.

Um, ya he is. That's a yellow piece of shit.

That motley crew look like outcasts from a down-low fashion show.

Damn, Bosh with another blood clot. Might be out the season again.

Supposedly a hereditary gene, small chance that it keeps returning but others are also saying a retirement might be an option if worst comes to worst.

Well, shit

This shit is kinda before my time, (well actually it is because I was a baby during this series) but I kind of hate how young people think that NBA players are so much more "athletic" (i.e. faster/jump higher/stronger/etc) than older generations.

A little youtubing and I found this:






Dr J fucking taking off from the free throw line in traffic finger roll?! A lot of lebron's game reminds me of Dr J (except Lebron barrels into people, and Dr. J smartly slipped by them).

Bobby Jones (token white guy) doing some legit posterizing DUNKS.

Darryl Dawkind (R.I.P.) dunking the shit out out of the ball often times in traffic.

Cedric Maxwell attacking a fan?! and not getting thrown out?! (because well its Philly).

The physicality of the game... OMG bodies fucking colliding and playoff fouls galore, but combined with the great flow of offense.

Once the ball got into the paint, it looks like a rugby match. I guess the kick out pass to the 3 point shooter didn't really exist yet. Madness.

 

And no iso (at least in the video) where the ballhandler stays in place for 5 seconds dribbling. Everybody is running around. I'm exhausted just watching.

Three-point shot had only been around for two years at that point. At first it was regarded as almost a gimmick, and it took some years before it really started getting incorporated as an integral part of offensive schemes.

its kind of like soccer or hockey where everyone is always moving around and there's a flow.

This is a fucking brilliantly insightful observation.

Trade deadline madness has started. Tobias Harris has been traded to the Pistons for Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova. Both Ilyasova and Vucevic are defensive liabilities, so playing them together will probably have disastrous consequences...

 

Also, Memphis has traded Courtney Lee to the Hornets.
