You don't see the foot stomp?

I see him lifting his leg while Giannis's leg is on it, LBJ forcibly pulling it to free his leg and his momentum causing his foot to stomp the floor...not Giannis. I would think if LBJ was foot stomping someone, he would've got him and it would've caused damage. You honestly think LBJ is trying to injure Giannis in that play? Yeah it was an unnecessary "get off" me leg movement, but the force is pushing Giannis leg out and away, not coming down on it for what I can tell.


He was staring at Giannis the whole time to get his attention while Giannis was falling while Giannis was still focusing on the play. The stomp was absolutely aimed at Giannis but he quickly got up to get back on defense. The get off was fairly tame while the stomp was ridiculously forceful. It was an **** move by the King with intention.

There was definitely a stomp. But I don't see any intent to land on Giannis.
Show me a screen shot where at any point Giannis's leg was underneath lebron during the 'stomp'. It was definitely I'm bigger and stronger gesture, but you are making it out to be a move that could've injured Giannis.
Again, I see Lebron (with his leg) move Giannis leg away from LBJ. Then stomping the open ground in the space he had just cleared. Is it a "Come on, just play the game" moment? Yes. Is LBJ the scum of the earth for trying to intimidate Giannis? No. At no point did I see him trying to injure Giannis beside a couple shoves that happen every single play and more has to do with LBJ being so strong compared to other players.

What does this have to do with a classless act on the court?


I can't respond to that question b/c the assertion that it's a "classless act" is gross hyperbole. But I see MD is shutting this down so I'll leave it at that.

Everyone has had their say in this old "news". Time to move on.

Interesting update. Promising (What LBJ is doing is working) and depressing (can't really scale it in our current political-basically increase school spending by 50%/having LBJ be personally involved with every school to inspire small children/families) at the same time. At the bare minimum, he changed 240 lives for the better. Could not care less if he looks like a selfish idiot dunking in lay-up lines.

I just found out that Plumlee got arrested for pot and was looking a way to incorporate it into my posts. I found it ridiculous Plumlee got arrested for anything and ridiculous someone got arrested for pot. No real agenda or judgment passed. Just more of a WTF is going on moment like when Ron Artest got pulled over in that ridiculous Indy car.

I realise the CBA is a pretty low level of competition, and Lance has made a name for himself in the NBA and is a big name get for them, but does his game translate to what you would expect for a guy you're paying $3 million to? I realise it's not a lot compared to NBA salaries, but I think the average import salary there is around $500k

So while sitting at the O'Hare Chili's I discovered a basketball tournament called "The Basketball Tournament." Winner take all - $2,000,000. A Marquette alumni team featuring Travis Diener has made the final four.

The whole tournament is filled with memorable college players. The Ohio State team looks good. The Wisconsin alumni team got bounced in the 1st round as a 2 seed. Though Hayes and Happ had to bail at last minute.

I thought for sure Portland would get a Christmas day game. With a star like Dame and just making the WCF, would seem to make sense

The xmas day lineup highlights the imbalance of power between the conferences. And I get wanting to give exposure to the Pels but wish that spot wouldve gone to Portland or Utah.

TBT is worth checking out IMO. Decent off-season hoops. Diener just joined them before that last game in Chicago. Good luck to them in the final 4...

I actually have a Dwight Buycks Jersey from the first or second year of the TBT. A month or two after it’s over all the merch goes on sale. I bought it for like $20 lol.

Right now I only see this shirt and the Marquette team’s shorts in clearance.

Draymond Green with a 4 year $100 mil extension. Keeping the band together for a few more years.

All signs pointing to Russell getting traded at some point or their tax bill is going to be a nightmare.
