    I think you need glasses. I wrote Hawks not nuggets.. And if you watched the game, which you clearly didn't but decided for some reason to come up with a snide (but as always wrong) remark, you would've noticed that hawks were losing because Hawks defense was pretty bad and denver was scoring at will.

    You're so butthurt that you're tripping over yourself trying to prove people wrong. Chill out. It's just basketball

    Were that the word you'd written, your use of "is" might have made sense.

    Do you know that if you were to randomly select any NBA team to play against the Lakers, there is a 16% chance that the selected opponent will have a worse record?
    So that makes tonight matchup against the Knicks kind of historic.
    In honor of the occasion and to help with scoring, they are going to use special 20" diameter rims.

    So you meant nugget not nuggets. you wrote 'a choice nuggets is "getting owned..."'. I figured you misplaced the " rather than using shitty grammar

    Ya, typo. The extra s doesn't read any other way, though.

    I saw that ninja edit about "I love my sense of humor" to lawyerdad

    Dude you're wrong. I even wrote out for you how it sounds if you assume the writer uses generally correct grammar instead of butchering basic English verbs like "to be"

    When you're wrong it's ok to admit you're wrong.


    I laughed. I don't know if I see the knicks doing well even in 5 years. They have no draft picks no promising player. Just a declining star and a gm and coach insisting on a style of basketball that doesn't work today even if it won championships for two decades. I really miss linsanity and 2012 knicks tho

    I saw that, too. The best part is how often he tries (and fails at) the ninja edit thing, which underscores how desperately he cares what people here think, even as he insists otherwise. :crackup:

    That new feature comes up at the bottom that shows a new post. Rather than reply to you, I edited and replied to indescertum directly. Big deal.

    I edit my posts all the time, don't care why you think I do it, and I don't hide the fact. I'll continue to edit as I please, like now. You show lots of determination to nitpick me, maybe the desperation is yours that I don't react how you wish I would.



    I did, it was a typo and you guys are like 6 posts in over an errant "s". The sentence couldn't be interpreted to explain your response ("I think you need glasses") but you get a pass for sounding stupid. And you edited your post above trying to rationalize, but I'm the one whose desperate.

    Lol at David blatt deliberately yelling at Danny green shooting a wide open 3 point shot. Can he do that?

    ugh blatt is one of those?? so lame. del negro is the king of it.

    this cavs-spurs game is great. kawhi's gonna get all the money. just don't let him shoot fts w/ <1 min left.

    every time kevin love gets benched in crunch time it seems inevitable that he's gonna walk after the season. i feel like the cle gm should override blatt and force him to play love.

    YOOOOOO KYRIE. haha that just happened. kyrie is amazing. if steph didn't exist a lot of his credit would go to kyrie. like bryce dallas howard and jessica chastain. not nearly as good a passer tho.

    Chuck is more annoying than funny as a commentator.

    if kyrie averages 50pts/game from here on out they definitely have a chance at making eastern conference finals.

    chuck gets more annoying the more times i see him, and the closer he is to running for arizona governor. best part tho was when barkley brought up when bron scored 29 of the cavs last 30 pts against the pistons and webber was like, "why you gotta bring that up man?" charles was like, "huh, you were on that team???"

    yoooooo kyrie. seriously i'm still sitting here cackling.
