Re: “The Iverson Dilemma: Logic Doesn't Live Here Anymore

@Herodutos, I also noticed that all of your comments posted here, are about what someone else has commented. You have no postings or thoughts about the actual flow of the games. I am a HUGH basketball fan, I love watching the games, and seeing them played the right way. The way Jordan played, at the highest level of passion and true competition. Without all these distractions and implications being thrown around. Blameing the players for the results of teams, and not those who are the true decision makers. So I'm wondering do you even watch the games at all, or just here to confront, and belittle others who post, you know, being messy...?

Re: “The Iverson Dilemma: Logic Doesn't Live Here Anymore

@Herodotus, I think you were so preoccupied in trying to seem so supremely intellegent, that you lost yourself in all that unnecessary dribble, so if my comment was misunderstood, please let me clear it up.
My comment is NOT in reference to Mr. Herrington, nor his article. It is referencing sports journalism in america in general. Mr. Herrington has already through prior reports made it perfectly clear how he feels about Iverson's position in Memphis, and I have not commented on it because it's his opinion. And I also think I stated several times, that my comments were my opinions, which I am entitled to. So if you do, or do not agree with my comments, does not mean that much to me.
As far as my education level, that is none of your business, or concern, so please keep your personal sentiments about me to yourself. If I happen to agree with statements by others that have posted them, that to is my perrogative, and there is no rule here that say's, "You can't reply if you agree". It sure does not stop those who disagree from posting and I see you have to comment about that.
I have not personally attacked anyone here, and I won't . This is open forum. If there is some problem with the comments I have posted, I would think Mr. Herrington himself would let me know. My comments are to hopefully give readers a different perspective, no more, no less. If it strikes a bad chord with you, sorry, that's not the intent. But it has been said that sometimes the truth hurts...

Re: “The Iverson Dilemma: Logic Doesn't Live Here Anymore

So someone comment on the game tonight at Golden State, more of that good ole coaching from Hollins and the Grizz lose another game they should have won. We're talking coaching people, COACHING..... I wonder if Kobe were traded to Memphis, and relegated to coming off the bench and only playing 15 to 20 minutes a game, and commented about it, would we still be getting all these biased comments. Or would everyone be asking for the coaches head. Think about it..

Re: “The Iverson Dilemma: Logic Doesn't Live Here Anymore

lol, I don't take "Jackflashes" comments as a lecture, but more him expressing his opinion, and I happen to think his comments are very on point. But then I did go to high school at Flint Northwestern, (coach Kirkland homeroom teacher), and lived in Detroit through all the "badboy" era, before moving to Chicago, DC, NYC and finally Atlanta. So I do consider myself well versed in basketball and agree with a lot of what "jackFlash" is expressing. But that's just my opinion...

Re: “The Iverson Dilemma: Logic Doesn't Live Here Anymore

ummmm good point BigGriz, but Thabeet had already fouled out, but definitely a good point, protect your finishers.. How about Memphis not getting a decent shot off in the final minutes while committing turnover after turnover.. Finishers coach, finishers...

Kevin Garnett and Gilbert Arenas missed almost the entire year last season, but started on their first games back, and KG is clearly not fully recovered. AI missed the preseason games, and the first 4 games of the season, but has been back to full contact practice with the team for almost a week. I'm sure he was good for more than 20 minutes...

That is absolutely correct Straight Shooter, and I agree 100 % ..
