  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2003 Fiesta Bowl, everything else pales in comparison. That season and especially the way it ended was incredible. I had an awesome rush for two to three weeks after that game, and it was far and away the greatest sports-related moment of my life.

The fire on the Cuyahoga?

Great point.  I can think of a couple instances where LeBron just quit on his team in a playoff series - '10 Cavs vs Celtics and '11 Heat vs Mavericks.

Jordan never quit like that.  Even when the Bulls were losing to the Pistons year after year in the Eastern Conference playoffs, Jordan still got his.

Lets look at some MJ #'s ......

#1 all time in points per game

#1 all time playoff ppg

#1 all time NBA Finals ppg

#1 NBA Finals MVP awards

#1 10 time season scoring champ

#1 Consecutive season scoring champ (7)

#1 most 50 point playoff games(Jordan has double of #2 on the list)

9 time NBA All-Defensive 1st Team

I could go on and on, but stats like these reinforce what I've seen with my own eyes - Jordan is G.O.A.T.

LeBron is an all time great, MJ is in a league of his own.

Also there are no upgrades in sight. TWC is dumping the Ohio market off to Charter whether they get bought by Comcast or not so TWC won't put any money in a network they won't own in a few years.

Yes, any network upgrades for Ohio TWC are likely frozen.  For those former Insight customers(myself included), DOCSIS 3.0 speeds only became available about a ~year ago.  Once it was announced that TWC was going to swallow Insight, Insight basically suspended all planned network upgrades.

Even though Comcast's bid for TWC was kiboshed, Charter will likely now make a play for TWC.   I don't expect TWC to do much until all this plays out.

I have "Ulitimate" 50mbs/5mbs from TWC, for about $68/mo.

Its a joke really, that this fastest residential service available.   5Mbs upload???  Its 2015!

I really, really wish Google Fiber would come to town.

Get the SB6141 or better.  The SB6141 has 8 downstream channels vs. 4 for the SB6121.

How bout those lazy shmucks over at Ohio State's BioEngineering department get off their asses and do something useful, like build a clone with the legs of Braxton, the arm of Cardale, and the eyes of JT.

Agreed, especially considering the timelines of those books ran in parallel.

I was not a fan of A Feast For Crows.  So I'm trying to keep my expectations measured for this season.

I sell things on Ebay from time to time.  Sometimes I'm making a few $$$ on something, other times I'm just getting rid of crap laying around the house or garage.  Beats a yard sale or just trashing something of value.

If you're trying to flip things you got for a low price etc, you will definitely want to familiarize yourself with Ebay fees, Paypal fees, and shipping costs before you can make an informed decision on whether selling your item on Ebay makes sense.  Sometimes it does, other times it doesn't.

I also sell stuff on Craigslist and online classified forums sections every now and then.  It just depends on the item.

Wherever you sell here's some advice:  Take good pics of the item.  Have a good, concise description of the item, be honest about its condition, and answer any inquiries about the stuff you are selling quickly and thoroughly.  Communication is key.

EDIT:  The poster above me(YOURA6) makes some GREAT points with regard to selling on Ebay.  I'll highlight a couple -

1.   Never deliver to anyone with an unverified address. You will lose any eBay protection if you send an item to someone with an unverified address.

2.  ALWAYS get tracking and delivery confirmation! If you don't, the seller can simply say the product never arrived!

These two are MUSTS if you're selling on Ebay.

LOL .... Not the statistical leader in anything???  Really?

#1 all time in points per game

#1 all time playoff ppg

#1 all time NBA Finals ppg

#1 NBA Finals MVP awards

#1 10 time season scoring champ

#1 Consecutive season scoring champ

#1 most 50 point games(Jordan has double of #2 on the list)

So, yeah, MJ is not tops in any significant statistical catagory

GOAT is subjective, but suffice to say, MJ is widely considered GOAT by many.  By several of those you mentioned.  And no, it doesn't matter if he's a dick.

There's an argument to me made for Bill Russel, or Wilt, to be GOAT.  Like I said, subjective.  However, based on what my eyes have seen on this planet, MJ is indeed GOAT.  I'm far from alone on that.
