Crazy dude :rofl: :rofl:


What a random thread and I love some of the baffled responses of the Rap fans. Anyone remember the troll thread on the Knicks board? Good stuff.

Funny how Heat fans got all ass soft when people kept talking and hate'in on them last season, now they can't keep the Lakers out their mouths on the GB.

That's a 19 year old draining a game winner over one the elite teams in the NBA for you. Beal is a stud.

Also KG; Number one instigator in the league. Smart enough to know not to ever cross the line since it'll likely result in an ass kicking on national television. Kudos Mr. KG.

And screw Stern. Forever and always. Watch this tyrant bag of bones hand out suspensions for things we never saw.

Who was going to kick his ass, Melo? It would have been a slap fight.

Mostly the Lebron nuthuggers and Kobe haters doin' the work(EscapoTHB,StrenghtNhonor,etc).....these dudes pop of on Lakers related threads more often than Heat ones :lol: :lol:

The REAL and knowledgeable Heat fans have stayed away if not for a few cameos here and there

What ?

I don't see it. Not the part of Beal being overrated, I'm neutral on peoples opinion on that, but than again I have to ask who's overrating him?

I think its pretty obvious its a hit or miss scenario with Lamb. I'm not sure what makes fans think he's a better prospect over Beal who is a lot more well rounded, younger and will have a much shorter learning curve than Lamb will whenever he sees any type of floor time.

I think Lamb is a terrific athlete and talent. So much so that I was really high on him and couldn't believe he wasn't a lock to go top 3. That was until I saw a couple of Huskie games a year ago. Reminded me of Nick Young coming out of school. Solid shooter, not great. Basketball IQ is was questionable. And for someone with his athletic abilities, I was unimpressed at how much time he spends around the perimeter.

Going by the scouting reports, not too surprised though. Apparently he couldn't finish at the rim. He's going to struggle now if he couldn't get his shot off against amateur big men inside. The talent is there but there is just too many holes in his game at this point to consider him the better prospect, IMO.

I think it was sarcastic, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is still fighting the good fight on the best SG from that class debate.

At least we can start trading with the Kings franchise now right?

Is there any possibility the Lakers are aiming for this guy in 2014? I mean it's not news, but he's the freaking real deal...

i dont see any reason for him to leave cleveland at this point, they are at least trying to build a solid roster around him. plus im pretty sure he will be a restricted free agent which means the cavs can and will match anything.

He will be indeed... I really like watching the kid play, but between Lakers games and other stuff I don't have time watching the Cavs play, was hoping to be able to kill two birds with one stone... Oh well...

Kyrie will be restricted. Which means Cleveland will match anything and everything he is offered. No shot at all he is leaving Cleveland. At least not in the foreseeable future. He'll be extended before that time comes anyway.

The Clippers are dismantling the Grizzlies without CP3.
Memphis is playing without Rudy as well which IMO wouldn't make a difference....

This Clippers team is really damn good.
1-12 their solid and their team chemistry with one another is very championship like.
Barring major injury to the main 8-10 players,
I do not see any team beating them in 7 games.

The Heat and Thunder are their main threats but once you compare their benches the
advantage goes heavily to the Clippers.

I have once stated that a fear of mines was to see a Clipper championship banner being raised next to our 16 Gold Banners. Ugggh...
I'm starting to come to peace with this possible conclusion. :roll:
The Clippers nation has gone to Hell and back and to Hell and back again.
This is by far the greatest Clippers team ever and this could be the greatest Clippers season ever as well.

I dont like the Clippers, but if i have to choose between the Heat and the clippers I would rather the Clippers win.
People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true?" Merely vague concepts...

I don't know. I think I would almost rather see the Heat win. I never imagined the day that the Clippers would be contenders and now its happening. I don't like it one bit. After seeing Lebron win one ring I'm more open to seeing the Heat win another championship.
