    Every player does it, lebron is not above average in being a dirty player. He flops too much, but that's about it.
    How he left Cleveland wasn't classy at all, but face it fans are big assholes and they will stab you in the back
    once when you fall. He made a good choice for himself, he executed it badly but w/e

    I only root vs his teams because since he came to the league he was so hyped and
    favored and so heavily marketed by the NBA it made me puke. I felt like NBA was trying too hard to sell
    him as next Jordan(which he is and lived up to, so grats for him). It made me happy whenever he lost,
    because I like to root for the Davids(besides that phony uptight david stern) and i was like yeahhh in yo face NBA!

    I feel like I can make a montage just like that for any modern "superstar" player (except maybe Rose and KD), if I had as much free time as your average neurosurgeon prodigy

    Meh. I don't dislike lebron. I guess I might even admire him. He was immature with the decision but he's matured a lot more since the lost to the mavericks. Dude works really hard at his game and has improved upon his weaknesses so much it's become strengths. He never used to have a post game or a three and now he's very good at them. He's also a lot of fun to watch and I honestly don't see there being a large referee bias in favor of him despite all these conspiracy theories. For example refs almost never call fouls for him against hibbert so much that he had to develop a floater just for him.

    Alonzo was so underrated. or at least as much as a HOF player can be underrated. When you think about he went up against almost nightly, how he was undersized in all those matchups and yet still kicked ass, intimidating presence. In today's league he'd probably average about 30 pts a game. Such a nice guy too.

    As a relatively young Nets fan (I'm in my early twenties), all I really remember of Alonzo Mourning is this...

    that dunk was sick, perhaps best ever in the NBA
    Vince is the best dunker of all time easily! Other dunkers have top10 he has top100 ;)

    Alonzo was a shot blocker. He had no "ups". That's why VC laid that down on him.

    spurs clinched #1 seed and home court throughout playoffs. is this spurs team, the oldest spurs team, the best one yet? its incredible to watch them enjoy this much success with such an old core of players.

    I'm curious to see how successful they'll be when Pop, Duncan, et al. retire but they seem set up to make a consistent run for years to come. Really admirable management

    pop better than phil?

    pop won coach of the year twice! twice! lmao if he doesnt win it this year. hornacek is getting consideration for doing what pop has done for the past 10 years: make a team play above its caliber by playing as a cohesive unit
