1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My dad and I watched PBF from the beginning of his career. He wasn't always a gigantic douchebag asshole. I'm still a fan. I think if tim duncan and the spurs turned heel and started being total d-bag assholes on purpose (like PBF did about 10 years ago) the spurs would be the bball version of pbf.

    this Miami heat big three era is more like prime mike tyson. they look/are unbeatable when they have momentum, but size smarts and teamwork are their achilles heel.

    maybe that makes the post 2007 lakers the manny pacquiao of the nba.

    Here's the way I see it:

    Duncan> Bosh
    James>>>Leonard
    Wade>>>Green >Ginobili
    Parker>>>Chalmers
    Haslem=Splitter

    Defense Miami>Spurs
    Bench Miami<<<Spurs
    Spoelstra<<<Popovich

    Pretty even.

    It's not just the media, Vegas had the Heat as something like 15-6 favorites.

    The "zomg greatest ever" is just the usual media hype machine being applied.


    You mean over his career? Maybe. Right now, there's no way Kobe is better than Lebron.

    Yeah, what Steve's responding to here bears no resemblance whatsoever to either the letter of the law or the common practical dynamics.

    What other experience would I have to go on?

    Do I have to Google this?

    I hate to do that to all of you AGAIN.

    In all honesty, I'd rather have the Pacers get swept than read all these articles about how majestic and dominant LeBron is. All these "comeback" victories do is further this guy's reputation. smh

    Do you think LBJ scares his teammates by his mere presence and cursing and pounding his fist just boiled over?

    I wonder if his team got really intimidated and played on fear or it LBJ rallied everyone together and motivated them for a win.

    Seems like he motivated himself more than his teammates.
