It has to do with the luxury tax, which would probably still be expensive even after not having to pay Finley's contract anymore.

You know...the selection for contestants for the three-point shootout used to be a LOT better. They put guys who are sort of, 'ok' at 3 point shooting in the shootout and it makes for an ugly competition. I remember back in the day when you'd see Craig Hodges(who won three of them in a row) and Mark Price(who won one or two) and Larry Bird going at it, going on these incredible streaks, like, sometimes going three or four racks in a row without missing.

The shootout is a much uglier affair these days.

I wish you were my professor. I'd like your exams.

Because Kobe wants to finish the season and hopes that a rest will help heal his ailing finger. He knows the team needs him for the rest of the year, so he does not want to further aggrivate his injury and jeopardize his teams chances of making and succeeding in the NBA Playoffs.


Now, have you ever torn a ligament in your body? I have, in my ankle. Mine hurt, so I imagine his pinky hurts. I don't think he's a pussy. I think he is in pain. If you want to see Kobe longer than just the regular season, you should be happy he is thinking about his team, not himself.

I too have torn a ligament in my pinky. He's a girl.

i would imagine excrutiating pain everytime you did something with your hands, i.e. catch a basketball, might be a reason to sit out a few games.

there are tons of guys who milk injuries for more than they're worth... coughcoughvincecartershaqcoughcough... kobe has never been one of those guys, as far as i can tell.

the celtics and lakers in the 80s used to play hard nosed defense and still have both teams end up in the 120s. it's what happens when players can, you know, actually shoot.

Jason Kapono is the only one that deserved to be in this three-point competition tonight. He's the only one that shot the ball like he deserved to be there. He's the only one that reminded me of Craig Hodges, Larry Bird, Jeff Hornacek, Mark Price, Reggie Miller, Steve Kerr.

We don't have shooters like that anymore.

just seeing craig hodges' name in there makes me cringe a little.

that said one would think mike miller, j.j. redick & ray allen being in this could made this a little more interesting.

as great as magic johnson was as a player, reverse that and that's how god awful he is as an analyst.

dwight howard's superman dunk is a tad over-rated. he didn't even actually dunk the ball, he just threw it into the rim. athleticly unbelievable but it wasn't really a dunk. the toss-tip-dunk and the off the back of the backboard dunk were better.

mike bibby must be pissed devan george doesn't play for the kings.

dr. j just stopped talking 5 minutes ago.
