    To be fair, The Spurs were up and Pop probably told Parker to dribble around to burn time. A possession or two before that, Ginobili iso'd and took a contested 3 and missed so Pop likely told Parker to handle the rock. Also keep in mind, they had the lead of about 7 or so points with about 1-2 minutes left. At that point, no one in the Spurs can really hold the ball outside of Manu but Manu was clearly struggling last night.

    Parker has been a great finisher this year, he had a handful of clutch jumpers and lay-ups this year alone. He has been breaking people off the dribble and managed to almost perfect the quick stop J.

    He's right about the 90's Bulls being able to handle the Heat.

    I think I probably agree. Pippen could handle Lebron, Rodman would handle Bosh, Jordan would shut down Wade. No more big 3.

    Seems to me old players always diss present players.

    Kinda sad really. Classless even if true.

    But if you google classless Rodman's face will pop up on the first page.

    Bulls would rout the Heat, but not because they can stop Lebron. They can slow Lebron's scoring, but he'd still be a wrecking ball elsewhere. If this were Wade of even last year, he would still get his vs MJ but Wade's stressing at this point- he'd get eaten alive right now. Let's not even talk about Bosh, he'd be a complete nonfactor unless he suddenly gets hot from 20 out.

    All of these era comparisons are sort of silly because teams (and players) are developed around beating the teams of their era. The Heat are built around the specific model of play right now. The Bulls were built around the model from the 90s. Different kinds of players dominated, different rules, different culture. The players grew up under different environments, and not just the 24/7 media culture. The role models are different, the competition is different. Transplant 12 year old Lebron back to 1980 and he grows up to be a different player than he is today.

    Also the salary cap rules and such are different, so there's that.

    It would be very interesting to see how they would contain LeBron-too big and too strong, especially against a team with no beef. I would put Rodman on him the entire series. Rodman, IMHO, would defend LBJ better than any player in the last 25 years.

    He is still an idiot, though. He made similar comments about Larry Bird in the 80's, backed up by his idiot captain, Isiah

    plus well... the 2011 Lebron and Lebronetts were easily beaten by Dirk and the mavs.

    Rodman guarding Lebron on the perimeter? You would pull one of the best rebounders ever away from his strength? And you would then do what exactly with Pippen?

    Rodman may be a dumbell but he's right, he'd eat Bosh up. Bosh is one soft player.



    This. We're still talking about a team that has won 1 championship.

    I would alternate pippen and Jordan on wade. Who cares about bosh. If he's going to play 18-20 feet out put who you want on him. Just gotta make sure to keep him off the glass.

    Rodman has checked magic, bird and even Olajuwon . Motor is nonstop and he gets under your skin. I'd challenge everyone else to make up for his lost boards, a fair trade since he's doing the heavy lifting

    No doubt-never once questioned his ability, toughness, etc. off the court, the idiot tag has been hung on him on more than several occasions

    which brings in the fact that isiah was iced out of the 1992 dream team all the more cold. even chuck daily was coaching - yikes!
