    With all the tattoos players are covered in nowadays, I doubt a yellow tab is gonna bring in any look of prestige....

    Lance at 8m/year is a bargain, too bad he is ona shit team though

    I hate how he is portrayed as headcase because he got the guts to compete with LBJ, I'd take lance over spineless loser diva Hibbert any day of the week twice on sundays

    I compared him to J.R. Smith previously, although I think J.R has a more evolved offensive game at this point. Everyone says J.R. is a headcase, but the guy plays reckless going to the basket, he brings emotion and excitement to the team and to the fans and, at least in J.R's case, he is a great teammate. As a coach you just have to know how to use them properly.

    That yellow tab is stupid. Why not give the reigning champion the right to sport something different on their jersey? And not some stupid little tab. Like Spain had this shield on their unis this last World Cup?

    Btw re Larry Bird fighting his old nemesis MJ for Lance Stephenson - - from a talent evaluation and team building perspective,I'd take the Legend in less time it took me to type this. MJ's performed no role better than horribly besides playing, while Bird is a winning player, coach and GM. I say this acquisition bites the Hornets in the ass

    MJ is just a minority owner right?

    LOL!


    MJ just became a "billionaire" recently because of the value of the Hornets (every team was reset after the Clippers), I think he owns like 80-85% of the team.

    Well MJ has more titles as a player right and don't they both have the same number of titles as GM's?

    Yes Rich Cho is the GM. i met him a few months back and he is so soft-spoken and unassuming it's a little disconcerting.

    Agreed. At some point nearly all teams will have the stupid gold tab. Makes much more sense to have some special small emblem that only belongs to that year's reigning champion. The gold tab is straight up asinine.

    Uh, yes, do you have anything that looks like Las Vegas designed a multi-colored lizard?

    Just watched some old 76ers games I am almost sure Maurice Cheeks is Russell Westbrook's real father.

    Would probably be a good fit for them. That contract, though.
