Random Basketball Observations


Recommended Posts

A thread where people can put things that don't make sense in other threads and aren't really worthy of a new thread has been a big success in the hockey forum so I thought I would start one here in the hoops forum as well.It looks like the NBA is going to lock out the NBA refs. The level of officiating is already horrible in the NBA so I hate to think how bad it will be with replacement refs.

can't you go five minutes without putting black people down?

Jeff Stotts ‏@RotowireATC Hear me out. Mavs sign Seth Curry, Jason Thompson, & Gerald Green. Then roll out a lineup of Curry, Thompson, Green, Barnes, & Bogut.

have to love JR Smith   J.R. Smith apparently drives a $450,000 armored truck around New York City now    

This ref thing is going to be a disaster. The refs have been atrocious the last couple of years, but I don't think having all new officials will be any better, likely much worse. The NBA needs new referee blood, but this will be way too much, too soon and will be a disaster.

not a chance. It's funny to say but, in reality, the officiating will get appreciably worse which is bad considering it was already crappy.
agreed. I think 1995 was the last time replacement refs were used and that was pretty damn bad.I feel for the NBA refs tho...it's one of the toughest sports to monitor and fans will always have their bias towards their teams. I don't think it's really that bad.So new NBA video games coming out soon. 2K10 or Live 2010?

2K10, and it's really not close if last year's games are any indication.Live sucked, and 2K9 was one of the best sports games ever made.

I went to 7 stores for 2K9 and they all sold out. I was jonesing for a bball game so ended up getting Live09 which I still enjoyed. Played 2K9 at friend's place few times and loved it too and ya, probably will go for 2K10 if I can find it. I hadn't played video games for 1.5 yrs so I still thought Live was good...bball has just come SO far now. In fact, I'm starting to complain real bball games look crappy because the graphics aren't as good!

Shaq looked like he's in good shape and not carrying a lot of extra weight. That being said the Cleveland bigs rotation of Shaq, Ilgauskas and Verajao are painfully slow and teams are going to be able to exploit that.

Caron Butler was addicted to Mountain Dew and used to drink at least 6 of them a day. That's a lot of caffeine and it shouldn't be surprising that he went through withdrawal.Interesting fact, in Canada Mountain Dew doesn't contain caffeine as only dark soft drinks like Colas or Root Beer can have caffeine added to them.http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_d...?urn=nba,198240

Bargnani abused all the Cavs bigs tonight. First play of the game he blew by Sideshow Bob Varejao for a dunk and none of the them could stay with him outside.

Michael Beasley watch:Beasley got off to a good start last night going for 21pts on 9 of 14 from the floor in an easy Heat win (over the Knicks). He also did not do anything crazy. More to follow.

Speaking of the Knicks. They should be the worst team in the league this year and it's pretty disgusting what they are doing in the faint hope that they might sign Lebron next year.

I just listened to an interview Lebetard had with Pat Riley yesterday who seems to be implying they are going to be trying to sign Lebron next season too saying they are the only team with room to sign 2 max contract players (not sure how accurate that is).

Without caffine, mountain dew has to be the worlds worst drink.

I hope he turns it around. Mental illness in sports isn't treated enough, or openly and honestly.

Man the Knicks screwed themselves. When they started down this salary dumping/sign lebron path, it was before the economy crashed. They thought they were going to be able to sign 2 max payroll players, if the cap grew like it did in the past. Now, instead of the salary cap growing, it has shrunk for the first time ever, a couple seasons in a row, and that just ends the Knicks franchise for pretty much ever.

Thanks for the link.I think anybody who has read any of my posts knows that I think NBA refs cheat so it wouldn't surprise me if everything in that book is true. It also wouldn't surprise me if a bunch of it is made up and twisted by a scumbag.

LOL pretty much this. I have absolutely no idea how much of that is going to end up being true... the only thing that would surprise me is if NONE of it was true. Also the NBA has squashed the book with lawsuit threats to random house or who ever's publishing it, and it's no longer coming out.
