I'm just a TOTAL fairweather Sonic fan - not afraid to admit it. (as a lifelong Seahawks FANATIC, I'm allowed some fairweather tendencies elsewhere )

*finally hops on the Sonics bandwagon after they tie the series w/Spurs*

go sonics!

Ginobili and Mohammed completely killed the Sonics tonight basically by themselves.
Mr. Longoria didn't help much, I can't stand him...

Pistons will beat the Heat. In last year's finals, Shaq got his in every game, and the Pistons still won the series. And last year's Lakers had more non-Shaq talent than this year's Heat.

B.Wallce/R.Wallace/T.Prince/R.Hamilton/C.Billups/A.Mcdyess > S.O'Neal/Wade/Jones/Jones

Last year's Lakers definitely had more non-Shaq talent than this year's Heat. Unfortunately for the Lakers, all that talent was contained in the person of Kobe Bryant.

No. No no no. The non-Shaq talent was NOT all Kobe, that is just an absurd thing to say. That team team had two HOFs on it outside of Shaq and Kobe. Yes, Malone was playing hurt and not 100%. Yes, Payton hated the triangle. Doesn't matter. They're HOFs for a reason. That Lakers team had a lot more non-Shaq talent than the Heat do and they lost handily to the Pistons. The Lakers of last year also had a better coach than the Heat of this year.

Complete non-sequitur. The reason Malone and Payton are HOF candidates is because of what they accomplished over their careers, and certainly not based on what they accomplished in 2004.

Talent is not a constant quantity with respect to time. And physical fitness, ability to avoid injury, and ability to adapt to new offensive systems are talents as well.

Don't underestimate Ron Jeremy's coaching prowess.

I'm not a Karl Malone fan, but the fact is that he was one of the most consistantly in-shape and physically-fit players to ever play on an NBA team, so don't give me that crap about how he's less talented if he got injured.

Well, one can't fault Malone (or Payton) for getting old, but a sad fact of life is that one's body does break down over time. Yes, this does mean that one's athletic talent dwindles once one gets sufficiently old. (And we're not just talking about avoiding injury -- we're talking about quickness, explosiveness, stamina, etc.)

While Malone and Payton were certainly stellar players for a long time in the NBA, the fact remains that all the factors that I have mentioned greatly diminished their worth to the Lakers.

You need to find 2 things...a picture of pornstar Ron Jeremy aka the hedgehog, and a sense of humor, then maybe you'll see what I'm talking about.

Never thought of that but Van Gunde realy resembels Ron very much.They have another thing in common.What Ron does to his partners Stan does that to his opponents and both are very impressive.They play it hard.
