    As you say this, Grantland posts an article today about this very topic of how bad this is to watch.

    It's a travesty to even put Howard in the same sentence as the Bad Boys.

    I wonder how the Bad Boys or even Oakley's Knicks would play against today's foul baiting rockets?

    They'd probably break both Harden's forearms in an honest effort to get their money's worth from those fouls

    I can see why people dislike current Houston Rockets but there are more hateable NBA teams throughout history (Bad Boys, LBJ Heatles, etc.)....

    Harden and Howard are annoying but watching them play doesn't fill me with rage like it does for other people apparently. /shrug

    In todays era, first five will likely foul out or just get kicked out and be suspended for a few games.

    It did hurt at the time, but I got over it. At least Dirk got his ring (although I don't like that Cuban got one).

    In other news, Lakers - Rockets tonight, and Dwight a mysterious last minute scratch from the lineup. I wonder why.. :lol:

    Not sure if I want to continue watching this HOU-LAL game or should hit up Netflix......


    Btw, great last second play by LBJ :laugh:

    Kid Nickels, hope you caught that

    Not much entertainment value now that Howard isn't playing. I was tuning in to see if Kobe would try to rip out his throat with his bare hands.

    Unless you want to see Bryant surpass MJ in lifetime scoring, which is likely happening

    And LBJ w/ the ball, 10 seconds, down 2, dribbling to half court and …. d'oh. Time to go home.

    I guess he just lost his handle, which really can happen to anyone, but the timing obviously was what killed it!

    Lakers blowing a close game in HOU btw…

    I didn't expect to need to edit this!
