Refs haven't called any of this shit including travel and backcourt for as long as I've ever watched the NBA. As a ref of the game it kills me when they let guys change their pivot foot before they drible or take two steps to get behind the three point line.

moving on to the draft...

this is in an article by chad ford on espn.com insider... it's supposed to show us why we should be impressed with tyrus thomas... frankly, all it does it show me how god damn dog shit awful he is...

Quote:
Livingston then tells me about the first time he took Thomas through the Mikan drill, the foundational drill for every big man in the NBA.

"He'd never done it before," Livingston remembers. "He couldn't do it. I remember it was a Friday and we spent a while on it and he just couldn't get it right -- especially the reverse Mikan.

"He had to go away to a funeral over the weekend. He got back on Sunday night and called me and said, 'Randy, meet me up at the gym, I've got to show you something.' I came in and the kid is in the gym doing the drill perfect. The thing is, where did he find time to work on it? The kid was traveling and at a funeral. It was right then I knew I had something special. He wants to get better."
if you've never heard of it, the mikan drill is the most basic, simple drill in all of basketball. it involves a player standing directly under the rim and shooting bank layups off one foot on either side, back and forth. 6th graders can do the mikan drill. tyrus thomas just learned how to do it. you shoot layups.. layups... LAYUPS...

american basketball... it's faaaaaaaaaaaantastic.

Know what I'm getting sick of? Commentators and media comparing everyone to Jordan...First it was Kobe, then it was Lebron, and now that Lebron is out of the playoffs, they are comparing D Wade to Jordan. Enough of the comparisons. Jordan was better. When they have rings on both hands and revolutionize the game, then come back to me.

that david stern... he is an evil genius. like darth vader, or the claw from inspector gadget.
A wise man once said, never attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence.

I say this to myself over and over again whenever I see poor officiating in big games.

he's an athletic freak and is limited to blocking shots and getting rebounds. Sadly, that will still get you 10 million a season.

How nice it is to be a millionaire... so you can make a complete fool of yourself.

(www.espn.com) Cuban fined $250K for actions after Game 5ESPN.com news services

DALLAS -- Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was fined $250,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for his outbursts following Game 5 of the NBA finals.

Cuban was cited for "several acts of misconduct" he committed after Dallas lost 101-100 in overtime to the Heat in Miami on Sunday night.

Furious with several calls, Cuban went onto the floor to vent directly to official Joe DeRosa. He then stared down and screamed toward commissioner David Stern and a group of league officials, from the court, then the stands. He later used profanity during a postgame session with the media.

The fine was announced hours before the Mavericks played host to the Heat in Game 6 of the NBA finals. Miami led the series 3-2.

Cuban said Monday he was bracing for the fine, his second this postseason. It showed in his reaction to the penalty: "I'm fine with it," he wrote in an e-mail. "Get the humor there. Fine with it."

Cuban has been fined at least $1.65 million since buying the team in January 2000. The exact total of his punishment tab isn't known because the league doesn't always publicize action against team owners. Cuban says he matches every dollar with a charitable donation

Any fan would be lucky to have Cuban as their team's owner.

No owner cares more about winning and less about his own bottom line than Cubes. His outspoken persona may get on some people's nerves, but I'm damn thankful he owns my favorite team, because none of this is possible without him.


Embarrassing? Not at all.

I agree wholeheartedly

I think he manages to take some of the pressure off of the Mavs in situations like tonight.

Mavs gotta have the same intensity in the second half that they did in the first half.

And for God's sake, at what point do you just start doubling D-Wade every time down the court?

LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

FORCE GAME 7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow. That last foul call on Dirk was one of the worst foul calls I've seen in recent memory.
