A schoolboy roll up? Today's players are so soft. Rodman and Malone were taking real bumps back in my day.

Reminds me of a kawhi championship. One moment he has it, and then poof, just like that, it is gone.
"Yes because he completely turned around a disastrous 5-12 team and helped them in every facet of the game. If Melo keeps it up, he is legit MVP candidate."

The only thing more cringeworthy that that is anybody who paid money for a ticket to watch this moronic crap. And this is coming from a fan of it back in the 80s and 90s. Now it’s just unwatchable.

The best part was when he took off his suit and revealed a Celtics jersey in front of the NY crowd. Too funny :lol:

Well, my idea was to get across something akin to Yosemite Dan's opinion above, as elegantly as possible. :)

I hold the conventional adult opinion that professional wrestling, as a scripted faux-sport, ranks among the most embarrassing and preposterous types of entertainment our species' has ever produced, on par with stuff like the Kattenstoet festival, fox tossing, and reality tv shows.

I think it's self-debasing for an athlete of Enes Kanter's stature to indulge in this nonsense.

Well I'm glad you didn't come across like Yosemite Dan's post, as something like that is not even worth responding to.

To me, wrestling is just another form of theatre entertainment which millions upon millions support. Yes it's not real, but movies aren't real either, and that didn't stop me from shedding a few tears during Avengers: Endgame.

I just don't get why people need to chime in on how they despise something so subjective as entertainment.

I used to love wrestling, back in the day when they called it the WWF and was purported to be real.

But just like Santa Claus, I ceased having any interest whatsoever in it, the moment I came to understand it was all phony. Which happened when I was like 7 or 8.

To each his own, naturally.

He's been training with DDP, so at some point he's gonna be wrestling. Though he'd need to put on serious size post basketball career.

what the hell do you not understand, people know it's phony and scripted. that's not why people watch it, because they think it's real. :lol:

they're storytellers, it's entertainment, that's it.

Insofar as there's a story. Variations of "Oh man I'm going to beat you up so hard on wrestlemania", etc.

It's a soap opera but with athletes who do funny ****. Nothing more, nothing less.

PG era and an overly politically correct society killed wrestling.
