  1. Running into Shaq is a scary thing.
  2. What I find hilarious is that one of the reasons the death toll has slowed down is our decision to work with a radical Islamic cleric who has declared a ceasefire. If anyone outside of the Bush administration or Fox news even remotely suggested that we should work with the leading radical Islamic cleric, what would they be attacked with? Can there be an acknowledgment that when operating in the field of foreign policy, broad based rhetoric and black and white arguments are absolutely foolish? What bobbob said.
  3. FU, Cam. I don't care who gives us the best chance of winning this year, it's not about this year anymore. It's about the future, asshat.
  4. Derrick Rose was torn between Memphis and IU too. Rose and Gordon would be sick. :confused
  5. With the next 2 games coming up, we will probably start 0-5 this year. Hopefully Wade returns soon so we can get some continuity and get on a run.
  6. Good movie, but I left feeling that I had expected somewhat more overall.
  7. Indiana won their exhibition game to start their season off, 121-76 over North Alabama. Freshman Jordan Crawford (30 points, 10-11 FG) and Eric Gordon (24 points) led the way.
  8. I'm sure Heat fans are really annoying to you on this board. TSwift and TheFan but it's no reason to be dumb in response to their dumbity.I don't even know what I have said that can even be remotely construed as dumb. All I did was say I am not as impressed with the Magic's lineup as their fans are. I haven't made any outrageous claims regarding the Heat. Beef, you need to grow some thicker skin if what I said bothered you.
  9. Antonio Cromartie with a 109-yard FG attempt return for a TD to end the half. Has to be the longest in NFL history; he was literally 2 inches from the back line when he fielded it.
  10. Nobody says the Heat arent going to be good with Wade back, you folks have just been insanely sensitive to talk of any other team. If by me thinking that the Magic fans are overrating their team, like you guys think Heat fans are overrating theirs, then sure, call me 'insanely sensitive'.
  11. We are 2-3 games into an 82 game season and Miami hasn't even had their best player play yet. Let's see how the season plays out.
  12. Offensively, Daequan Cook looks awesome in his debut so far. 7 minutes, 3-3, 6 points. Playing pretty solid defense too.
  13. I just heard something of Hinrich to Sactown, Artest and Gordon to LA and Kobe to Chicago Yeah, I heard that same rumor circulating today, but it also included Tyrus in the deal. Haven't heard it from any 'reliable' source/person though.
  14. Weren't you the one who lost the moderator privilege you so greatly wanted for trolling me? In no way shape or form, I left the board for personal reasons and thus lost my modship because of my extended absence. You didn't factor in, in any way shape or form. Don't flatter yourself. I've never once been reprimanded or told to not troll you by any of the mods.Whatever you say. I know otherwise, but unlike you, I really don't care. I also don't care to continue on this thread with you.
  15. I didn't say take it as fact but you accused me as being a Duke ass kisser which affected my opinion on Deng. I gave you two examples (Slam Magazine, and a guy who played the actual game) who think along the same lines as me. Maybe they are Duke ass kissers too. Who knows. Anyone who doesn't agree with you gets an ad hominem attack. You couldn't even converse with me for one post before turning in to a douche. I've come to expect it though. Is it time for your annual banning for trolling me yet? If it isn't yet, how this thread has started it sure as hell will be. You gave two opinions of that stated Deng had all-star potential. Where did I disagree with that? Better yet, where did those opinions state that he has some 'absurd potential' or anything even REMOTELY close? I guess you could stretch the Slam to meet your opinion, although with the hype they give every single person to ever grace their magazine on any level, I would take that with a grain of salt. On to your second point, I think you need to re-check the thread. I wrote a pretty straightforward opinion to a post, no antagonistic message in it. I don't see where it could be considered douchey at all, but that changed once your typical dbag response came to that post. I also find it funny that you talk about trolling. Weren't you the one who lost the moderator privilege you so greatly wanted for trolling me?
  16. Yeah, real funny claim that most of his shots did not come off his own creation. I watched the series, and living where I do, I have a ton of friends that are Bulls fans. They would be the first to tell you what I did. Most of his points came in transition or in the form of a mid-range jumper off someone else's creation. Off the top of my head, there are at least 5 players at his position alone that are 22/23 or younger that I would rather have and think have more potential. Durant, Josh Smith, Igoudala, Melo & LBJ. Great, he has an 'NBA body,' but he isn't overly athletic and I really question how effective he would be if he had to carry the load of a team like LeBron did last year (and that's not a comparison to LeBron). But I forgot, he has 'absurd' potential. I guess if we don't kiss the ass of a Duke player turned Bull, then our opinions are automatically 'off-beat.' I forgot, only your opinion counts as fact. The Deng for Lebron thing is just pointless as well. No one is comparing him to LBJ and they aren't similar situations. The mark of a player now is how they stake up to James? Since I'm a Duke ass kisser I'll just let people who get paid talk for me instead of the Law Student/internet stalker mastermind who talks crap behind a computer screen: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/preview2007/...Experts-Central I'll await your ad hominem attack though. :thumbup So now I'm supposed to take Slam Online (LOL :lol ) and Jon Barry's opinion as fact? I'm sorry I ever said that I don't see Luol's 'absurd' potential. I didn't know that those two sources saying Deng has the potential to be an all-star (which I have never disagreed with, btw) meant that I was wrong in anything I said. :lol :lol Also, maybe your reading comprehension isn't too strong, so I will not only paste what I previously said down here, but I will also bold the other post where I said, "and that's not a comparison to LeBron". I'm sure you're smart enough to know what that meant. It was a situational analogy, not a player analogy. P.S. I love how you talk about how everyone runs their mouth from behind a computer screen....would you like everyone to come to NC to run their mouth to your face? Do you think anyone cares? What a 'tough guy' you are.
  17. Apparently the Wizards have entered the Kobe sweepstakes and the rumor is Arenas would be included.
  18. He averaged 19 and 7 last year at 21. I'd say there is an absurd amount of potential there. He has a fantastic body for the NBA. :lol @ him not creating his own shot. The hell? MB.com has to have some of the most off-beat NBA opinions I've read on the internet. Yeah, real funny claim that most of his shots did not come off his own creation. I watched the series, and living where I do, I have a ton of friends that are Bulls fans. They would be the first to tell you what I did. Most of his points came in transition or in the form of a mid-range jumper off someone else's creation.

Great, he has an 'NBA body,' but he isn't overly athletic and I really question how effective he would be if he had to carry the load of a team like LeBron did last year (and that's not a comparison to LeBron). But I forgot, he has 'absurd' potential. I guess if we don't kiss the ass of a Duke player turned Bull, then our opinions are automatically 'off-beat.' I forgot, only your opinion counts as fact.
  19. I don't understand the love affair Bulls fans have with Deng. He looks like a solid player, but he'll never lead a team to the finals. :| The guy has all-star production and absurd potential written all over him. I guess you missed the Heat series last year? Don't forget he is all of 22 too.I saw the Heat series. He has a great mid-range game. However, to be realistic, he was also being defended by an severly injured, 6'4'' Dwyane Wade. He didn't create his own shot, as most of his shots came off an open mid-range jumper from someone else's penetration or in transition. He is a really good player, no doubt, but I don't see this 'absurd' potential written all over him. In fact, if Tyrus ever develops a jumper, he is clearly the one with the biggest potential IMO. As for Gordon, great offensive player, but I wouldn't think twice about dealing him if it meant Kobe.

    Halloween

    Went to a Halloween party Friday and saw 2 really funny things.... 1. On the way to the party, I heard a car BLASTING the old Hulk Hogan music (talking real old school) by a bar and we all looked over like WTF....suddenly, about 10 guys popped out of this little car....all dressed as old school wrestlers and stormed the bar without even showing their IDs. It was hysterical. 2. At the party, once again loud music comes on, this time Mexican.....all the sudden a group of about 8-10 guys dressed as a mariachi band come running in, one with a boom box on his shoulder....they had great fake mustaches and costumes, including funny musical instruments. Props def. deserved for those 2 groups.
  21. Let Canada pick up the tab. Best goddamn idea I've ever heard.Agreed again. Done and done.
  22. Hey, it's only money. :hat This is true. We can always print 2.4 trillion more dollars and just call it even.Agreed. Done and done.
  23. No. Thanks. p.s., not only are we divisional rivals with them, which makes a trade highly unlikely, but he came in today and has thrown for a TD.
