    Dude obviously implying it was intentional, come on now. Plus that was a snippet I used as an example. He also said:

    Afraid of a little contact? Just can't take it when dude does shit himself but when the tables are turned dude complains like he's never played ball before. This guy beat the Mavs in the Finals by driving in the lane and getting those fouls and once he gets hit a bit harder he complains.

    well I think it was intentional, or at least excessive and out of control. you disagree. we both saw it on TV, who knows what it looked like in person and real time. getting hit pissed him off, and he made a comment when asked, and you don't want to cut him any slack because you hate the Heat.

    you are also taking the tough guy quote way out of context. that was what he told Granger for his continued posturing and getting in people's face and attempting to escalate everything into a confrontation or fight. had nothing to do with Hansbrough.

    the only thing I regret about all these fracases is that it will be tough in game 6 without Bosh or Haslem if he gets suspended. oh, and Pittman's foul was a complete embarrassment

    And dude winked on the camera after the foul. Dude gave away that he did it on purpose, if I were Stern, I'd suspend dude the rest of the playoffs. At least Haslem and Tyler can make the defense that wasn't intentional but Pittman is just as immature as Bynum, maybe more since they were actually winning the game/series.

    yeah, suspend him into next year for all I care. the other dude was disrespectful, but just trash talking. Stephenson wasn't out there trying to hurt your guys. big guy elbowing little guy unaware and going full speed in the throat/neck area. he coulda killed him, seriously. what a disgrace

    it looks more like Mr. T than James Harden.... but still pretty awesome.

    I just want this sixers celtics series to end. the jumpshooting youth team vs. defensive lockdown senior team is producing some low assed scores and lame games.

    debated about where to put this. almost went MC but then I thought: Would Vox know who Craig Sager is? So, just leaving this here, what a terrific piece of writing. Sample:

    I find that bad writers (most writers) tend to string together a list of synonyms when they describe things. It's refreshing to read pieces that are written without cliches or wasted words.
