Oh, and Lionel has to get on the refs (in the press, not just during games) about how Diaw and Bonner "set" screens. I know the league has let this go, but Diaw and Bonner just go run into the our guys. It is impossible to play D on Parker if they don't get called for any illegal screens. A couple of whistles here and there would really change how these games go.
I keep coming back to this idea that the Grizz should go ultra small when Bonner is on the court. Like either QPon or TA at the the 4 small. Tying in to Lowe's great article on the Bonner factor, DA cannot make them pay on D for playing Bonner so the other option is try to make him guard on the perimeter and blow by him. On D, just switch everything. Thoughts?
You live in Arlington. How about the lowdown on Taylor Flake, Class President of Arlington High School, not being allowed to speak at the graduation ceremony.
Seems to me if you can get enough votes to be class president, you should be able to speak. Are you sure it is not because of color?
Bad link. Just google Don't hold your breath for public opinion to turn against Obama, 5/21/2013
I have constantly told you red-state-southern ultra gop conservatives, yes, with a touch of racism in it, to realize that there is a much greater share of the American people that don't think the same way they do.
These so-called scandals are nothing but conservative republicans with a good dose of racism in them fueling this fire that is really only manifesting its self within the gop framework and the Washington Beltway.
Seems weird to write this, but Grizz in 7. SAS can play at a higher level than Grizz, but I dont think they can sustain it. Grit and grind has a chance to win the series.
Tough game. This will be a heck of a series. I like Randolph. It's unfair to expect him to carry the offense. If you ever want to trade him....
They will be open by Friday, I suppose that's enough time to change a few employees, but not a culture of tolerance for criminal activity, if that is what it is.
Good lord B_Head, what decade are you living in? I think we got this lecture (essentially) about 40 years ago and look where it got us. Thank you daddy, where have you been?
So the Spurs got here by beating the Lakers without Kobe and the Warriors without David Lee, and this guy wants to discount our route to the conference finals. Love it.
It sure ain't your Obama-Marxist Communist flavored-race colored Kool-Aid.
That much you can count on.
By the way, I do have tons of respect for the way the Spurs play between whistles. However, after the whistle, they're the biggest bunch of whiny crybabies in the league. No team even comes close to matching them.
To Grove: I can't deny that the Grizz play well against crippled playoff teams. The Spurs don't exactly have anything to whine about. They play clean, exciting basketball. And mostly win. It's almost showtime. Break a leg.
Ha. Yep. 56 wins and the Conference Finals means you can't win in the NBA without shooters and above the rim players.
Do you not remember that this team knocked yours out of the playoffs with the exact same style two years ago?
It is definitely nice to have a bunch of shooters and dunkers, but all that really matters is stopping your opponent and being efficient on offense. Also getting extra possessions, via turnovers and rebounds is key.
One thing I do know is that whining isn't a part of American basketball.
great article. Starlito is one of few rapper that i feel like its easy to know the real him which is why i love his music. I feel like I'm laughing joking and crying with a distant friend when i play his music. Just started listen to him after Stepbrothers was released but since I've listened to about 8 of his albums/mixtapes
Mr Borst, " It's been my experience that the first person to throw out the race card is the racist."
Fascinating. Perhaps you can further edify us with your history in race relations, fighting the good fight as is your wont.
Nice idea. That's about as far as my business acumen gets me.
Sure, I didn't take your post to mean that at all.
I have had these and they are fabulous! Worth every penny.i was one of those who ordered that super busy holiday period. I will be again!
GroveReb84: The Spurs can very well play contact and physical ball, and they can also run the court and play long ball. That's American basketball. What it is that a one-dimensional teams plays, I don't know, perhaps Russian ball. But it's no recipe for success in the NBA. Frankly, basketball is a game for super players, and your team is lacking. Spurs in six.
