This is not getting any less glorious
Exaaaaaaactly. That's what Urban knows too. These kids think they'll stay the same physically and that's why the tight end talk turned him off. Get him here and to buy into the system and he will be just fine.
A lot of good chatter on this thread. It's hard to know who to add/subtract or what a solution is, but fun to talk about. A few points that stick out to me:
Golden State is amazingly talented and stacked, but far from unbeatable. KD was the entire difference. Without KD the cavs are a better team. And even saying that, it's not like Cleveland had no business being there, the Cavs could have won this series. Cleveland had a lot of underwhelming performances but that is to be expected. Just because Klay Thompson didn't score 30 a night doesn't mean he wasn't valuable, so why say the same for Love? He was not a liability on defense and he was Cleveland best rebounder next to TT. Plus he stretched GS out on defense and his passing is second to none.
I think Thompson and D Williams played better than they are given credit for. Role players, D Williams is a smart PG and that's invaluable with Kyrie dinged like he was.
People keep saying Korver is one of the best shooters in the game but I don't see it. Not on the clutch. JR Smith can be that guy but can't do it with another liability on defense like Korver.
Hey man I appreciate the response :)
Just wondering why Tavion Thomas is the forgotten man in this RB haul? Teague and White are just that much better? Not hearing anything really...
Joey Galloway would change the Ninja Warrior game forever.
"A little birdie told me we should draft some receiver out of Ohio State..."
Typical White Sox bats cold as ice. Not taking anything away from you Tribers just frustrating as a sox fan to see them appear offensively dismal.
Alabama also can sign 29 every year so....
Jonathan Wells is alive
Depends on how much of a shitshow it really is up there. A kid like that might feel like a king and never want to leave though.
You think LeBron could have played all 5 positions in Jordan's era? You're nuts. Ewing, Hakeem, Robinson; almost every single team had a capable center that LeBron couldn't play the post on. The NBA is different, that 5 positions thing is weak. LeBron may be the best athlete, but Jordan was absolutely the best. His training and mindset. Look at what the guys that played with him say about him as a player, and these guys are basketball royalty. What LeBron does is amazing but it's just absolutely apparent that MJ was better.
Completely agree. Gretzky ABSOLUTELY is on that mountain with those guys.
The competition in the East was more pathetic than the teams LeBron took to the finals. Jordan's era was filled with sure-fire legends and gamers on almost every team.
Damn! Took it a big step farther. I agree with you on every front except the Tmac ending. Good post!
The NBA has changed, its apples to oranges. There aren't dominant centers anymore. If you think LeBron could have posted up with Hakeem or Ewing I think you're nuts. Jordan's skill set was superior for what it needed to be.
I agree with that. I'm saying at the forefront of the technological boom and cable tv, was MJ. In my generation he was the reason I cared. Bird was the reason my dad cared. Plus MJ didn't ask his owners or gms to trade for someone he wanted to help him.
MJ transcended the sport and made the NBA what it is today, almost single handedly. I don't care if LeBron can play every position or he turned a shit team into a championship team. MJ turned a playoff team into the greatest team of all time. The championships LJ won he had arguably a better supporting cast than MJ did. I'd take Kyrie over Pippen on any day. Wade too.
Really gonna have to wade through our options in the uber-talented defensive backfield we are sporting.
In the 90's they had the Home Game cups, and my grandparents got one every year. My family still has a bunch of them and we use them like regular drinking cups.
