No one has ever mentioned this, or given a sh*t about this, for years. Suddenly, after the Nets built a practice facility into their arena, MSG is "horrible" because the Knicks practices facility is "so far away" in Westchester.

Oh my heavens, but where will the basketball players live?

I don't know. Maybe in Westchester, for the onerous commute into the city of 30-45 minutes, for HALF the year, the ones that millions of people in the tri-state area take every day. Well, the ones that don't have commutes of 1 to 1.5 hours.

It's amazing how the press eat up and regurgitate this Nets propaganda. As if the commute into Brooklyn might not take roughly 30 minutes, for the upper east or upper west side, IF a player wanted to live in those parts of Manhattan, as opposed to living in Brooklyn or Soho or Tribeca.

I'm saying having the practice facility right there doesn't have some appeal, but it's funny how the Nets are attempting to over blow this fact and the presses willingness to go along.

It's just silly.

Most of the players don’t even live in the city hahahahah


Exactly. There in Westchester or Northern NJ or I'd guess out on LI, some of them.

I mean I wouldn’t say he’s never been in good shape. He’s played a lot of basketball at a very high level. I don’t think you can be out of shape and do that. Is it his optimal physical conditioning? I don’t know. Not sure. But I don’t think you can really judge that by looking to see if he’s pudgy or something anyway.

Also, some people have body types where they never get that chiseled look but they can run anyone out of a gym. On the flip there are people who look very cut but you them running out of gas after a few laps. Basically body type doesn’t necessarily correlate to conditioning.

Shouldn't this be in the "Around the NBA" thread? I don't believe it's worthy of its own.

agreed. i should have said, he never looks to be in great shape. i personally think getting down to a very low body fat is overrated for everything except appearances. it always makes me feel slower and weaker. there's a point where it becomes a detriment unless you're very young. although harden looks a little over that point in the opposite direction.

i don't really believe that anyone can't be chiseled though. there are people who are more genetically predisposed to it than others but if you lift enough and control your diet you can be somewhat chiseled. whether that helps them perform better athletically is another thing but it can be achieved.

Harden is about the handles and smooth moves, having the defender on skates. He’s the opposite of his teammate who is not smooth at all and relies on athleticism.
