While Payton does have a point, this guy does also have some great points as well:
^ The game has gotten heaps wimpier. He makes a few decent points but he's wrong about that. Just look at LeBron's bitch face when he gets a foul called on him.... that's all you need to see. He does it every time, kinda because its so rare any ref dare whistle him.
I also think there is PLENTY of standing around. Every team now has at least 2 three point gunners on the floor at all times and they just park their asses in a corner or perhaps set a pick before standing at the top of the arc. Spacing makes sense. It was an obvious difference from today in that Lakers Celtics series from '84, the teams were completely packed in, but the game was played from 15 feet to the rim back then. The 3 point shot was not nearly as common, even 6 or 7 years ago.
The thing that seems to have disappeared from the game is all that great low post play. I kinda miss that. I say this more Hakeem not Charles Oakley, but the modern power forward just doesn't have many moves and they rely on athleticism for points. Its why so many guys drop off so early. Modern players seem less skilled save for a handful.
Boston collecting picks. After todays trade:
i guess they'll be able to create three great division 1A NCAA teams with all those picks.
I have my knick fan friends who start talking like they will get rondo and kevin love in the next two years and I at the moment when they start convincing themselves its going to happen.
"Wow I used to think young was soft. Swaggy P don't fuck around"
good news knicks fans... your future point guard is playing on friday!
Nelson got fined $15k for this? Kobes and Cassell has done this before and never got fined.
Honestly, I mean no harm to anyone but sometimes it feels like Blake Griffin needs to do these and deck one of these guys so he loses the pussy label and people stop trying to hit him.
Last night was ridiculous, Griffin got a double tech with Dirk and they kept trying to goad him to get the 2nd tech and remove him from the game, same thing that Bogut did to Griffin in Golden State. Carter kept getting on his face while Griffin just kept walking away, Carter got the tech. Then Dalembert pulled him down and was ready to get charged by Griffin, Dalembert got the flagrant 1 (which cost them the Mavs the game) and he was actually lucky the ref got in between him and Blake because Blake was about to do something. It show maturity with what dude goes through and just turning the other cheek but damn it would be nice to see this dude level someone so people would stop trying to bully him out of games.
I actually wish Griffin would be the one who gets decked for his KIA commercials alone
ASG jerseys has sleeves again. Ugh.
Other players seem to have a lot of personal animosity to Blake. I know that in the early days it was because he would dunk on people and stare them down, but now it does appear like dudes are always actively trolling him
Tracy Morgan plays in the NBA now
Not to draw this out any longer but seeing the scuffle in GIF form is even more hilarious

Yah Nick Young was outspoken about his teammates not having his back. Now you'll see less passing from him.
sorry, calling bs on that argument. it happened at the end of a breakaway fast break. and the way the lakers have been running the floor, it probably would have taken an extra day for someone to get to the opposite baseline to help out.
