But I hear Morrison is rather unathletic...I even read the phrase 'has the legs of a 40 year old'.

Has anyone heard the story of Kobe and The Mamba?

in the ESPN NBA preview issue there's an interview with Kobe

and he nicknames himself: The Mamba, which is a 13-foot python that can strike with 99% accuracy and is extremely quick

now to me, whenever a man accused of sexual assault names himself after a 13-foot python, I find that hilarious

and now I call Kobe simply: "The Mamba"

eh hem...




ATHLETICISIM MEANS ABOUT AS MUCH AS TO ME AS THE LENGTH OF EACH INDIVIDUAL PLAYER'S ASS HAIR.

in other words... the fact that "athleticisim" has taken over skill as the most important thing in american basketball is exactly why just 10 years ago we were beating the ever living shit out of everyone and now we're losing.

eh, one of them... in the top 5, probably in the top 2... but i've gotta give the #1 spot to jordan. he was insanely athleticly gifted while at the same time being fundamentaly perfect.

you don't see that anymore... now it's either skill or no skill, and many college coaches don't care because they're winning games so why should they?

sad

yeah, you're right, MJ was better than Larry Legend

I wonder how drafting and player skills will change since there's the age limit now

I mean, will most players be better coming from college -> NBA, or some of the people who are raw talent from high school now having to go to college or wait will be better or worse?

the age limit is a step in the right direction... it'll start to show results in 3-4 years.

next step will be when colleges place rules that de-emphisize recruiting at AAU tournaments and showcase camps and back on actuall high school games. might be asking much, but a man can dream

Kobe, Lebron, and KG would have been great whether or not they attended college. It's the other 50 stupid high school kids who enter the draft every year that need to be saved.

and one could argue that Kobe could have curtailed some of his obvious emotional issues if he had spent a few years in college

and if lebron went to college perhaps he wouldn't make such stupid commericals.


on the subject of lebron, i've noticed a change in his game... he doesn't pass as much as he used to, he's become more of a scorer, as opposed to the magic johnson/oscar robertson type player he was in his first two seasons... i hope it's just a temporary thing.

his scoring is up, 30.4 ppg as opposed to 27.4 last year, but his assists and rebounds are both down by more than 1 per game.

still a great player, don't get me wrong... he's not any worse than he was, his style has just changed. he's no longer the triple double for a season threat i thought he'd become after last season.
