    They just need to get rid of D'Antoni, I am almost certain Phil would have made these guys play together much better.

    They need Uncle Drew and Wes to come teach them how to play old school ball.

    You guys are crazy if you think there is even a slight chance Kobe will get traded. Lakers always sells ticket because of him.

    that's a good column. i was a mda fan when he came in, but i really don't think he's done himself any favors this year. it's been a series of tough situations (coming in with the season started; lots of injuries; one of the three or four toughest markets in the league). but he can't seem to find a way to make the major pieces fit (howard/gasol/nash/bryant) and the way players fall in and out of favor with his rotations i think is a real morale dump. Jamison, Duhon, Ebanks, Meeks, Morris ... players go from starters to 0 minutes at what seems to be a whim, and the one thing they all say is that d'antoni's not telling them what they're doing wrong or what they need to improve. it's all the way up to gasol now. howard is a great talent, no doubt, but some games he just checks out. last night he got stripped down low at least 4-5 times. and one time kobe drove and dished him the ball and hit him in the back because he wasn't paying attention.

    This article got me laughing. Me my friends used to joke around on who we could beat or come close to beating in the NBA and they always say Scalabrine (no joke) or Madsen and I always tell them they had no clue what the hell they were talking about because NBA players surpass D-League and I told them probably couldn't even beat most of the lower division college player but they always laughed at me. And then I read this and there was doubt in my mind that most fo my friends that were talking won't even score a basket against any NBA players. :lol:

    i used to run regularly with one of the guys on the USC team. guy almost never played (he did have a scholarship though) for a school that wasn't even competitive at the time in D1, much less the NCAA. dude could still run the table playing with any four scrubs, that's how big the difference is between even marginal athletes at that level and the best playground ballers.

    of course, things are probably different in places like DC and NY. this was suburban LA

    14min and 25sec mark: FINALLY!

    its when they finally have an athletic black guy going at Scal. The other two were caucasian.

    ^this same situation happened when Joe Kleine (the 90's tall caucasian NBA stiff) showed up at the Providence College Basketball summer camp I went to in the early 90's. The thing is though Joe Kleine was a fucking muscular scary assed 6'11" monster still in his prime - compared to the soft looking retired Scalabrine.

    the thing I remember is when kleine would rebound he'd naturally slap the ball when grabbing it. it was so loud and scary and violent - that in retrospect I think klein may have been taking steroids. he was rebounding like that even with one on one when he didn't have to.

    He just out physical-ed the top players (3 of which when to division 1 schools) and even the Providence college players. He then had a shooting contest with Eric Murdock (1st round pick of the Jazz - and possible "john stockton successor " :lol: ). They were hitting half court shots using regular shooting form and bank shot threes from the baselines.
