Why do you hate Rip? He's your kind of guy in that he Doesn't have great athleticism, but he's a great shooter. I love watching him run around screens and catch and shoot.

firstly he's a terrific athlete... just because he can't jump, he can run for days.

largely it's because of the mask... everytime i see him wearing that mask i just want to punch him in the face.

besides that... he's a foul machine. watch him. every play, offense and defense, he commits a foul. honest. watch him. he does.

and lastly, it's your statement that he's a "great shooter." correction... he's a great mid-range shooter. he's deadly from 10-15 feet. when was the last time ya saw him knock down a big three?

but yea... mainly it's the mask.

just so we're perfectly clear... there has been 100 times more contact in the last minute of this celtic/pistons game, without fouls being called, then there was on that brent barry play.

and no one will say shit about the no calls. and they shouldn't... it's the playoffs... stop being a pussy.

The NBA just released an official statement saying that a 2 shot foul should have been called on Brent Barry last night.

So there you have it. Now it's an official ripoff.

And talk about the class of the Spurs last night. Absolutely no one complained about the no call, even though they all knew that it had been a lousy call.

Plus, Crawford is ugly as hell...

They must've spent their energy complaining about every other call. "No calls" decided the outcome of 3 of the games in the Magic-Pistons series. It's the playoffs, shit happens.

Headache, I agree completely about Rip Lector - forearm shove to the defender when he gets the ball every damn time. It's like Reggie Miller gave him private lessons.

So if those with class don't complain about the call, then those without class... ?



And on the serious side, no, it's not a ripoff. Had the foul been called the Spurs could very well have gone on to lose the game anyway. Considering they'd been losing it for the past 4 quarters anyway.

It's a good choice for ESPN to replay that Rip Hamilton piece during halftime where he puts on a Vader mask, because he tried to do a force choke on Ray Allen in the final seconds of the game. MISStons got careless in the first half making them play from behind too much in the second. Turned "the switch" on way too late. Isiah Thomas is rolling in his grave.

GREATkers vs. MELTics finals is drawing near!

Is there anything I can do to entice you to go away? Cash? Recommend a shrink? Whatever it takes.

I didn't think anyone would actually buy into these obvious joke posts. People must know weirdo fans like that. Oh brother.

Nothing to do with where he played his college ball, right? I was thinking Rip should actually paint some designs on the mask, maybe with some dayglo paint or something...that would be pimpin

BTW speaking of fouls, non-fouls, and what is and isn't in the playoffs...Jackson and Van Gundy gave Mike Breen a well-earned thrashing over his contention that PJ's foul was correctly called a flagrant. I thought it was pretty funny how for the rest of the game when a semi-hard foul happened one of them would ask "so Mike, is THAT a flagrant?" Good stuff.

Perk was a beast last night, which is what I like to see. I wonder if that's what we'd see from him if he could stay out of foul trouble consistently?



Remember me?

I guess the "masterplan #2" will involve some procedure under which Rob Horry breaks Kobe Bryant's leg...

well i love ray allen, and he went to uconn, so neener neener neeener

as for that PJ Brown flagrant... all breen had to do was make the argument that pj's arms visably pushed the player to the ground while in the air. that's what made it a flagrant, and that's what made it different from all of the other examples they used over the course of the game. both arms flailing downwards on an airborne player is not a natural motion.

and i still hate pj brown.

So there you have it. Now it's an official ripoff.

so if they had made the call and the lakers ended up losing in overtime, would the NBA then make an official statement declaring that the spurs never should have gotten the ball because the refs missed a reset of the 24 second shot clock on the previous posession? thus making it official that the lakers got ripped off?

did he get fouled? yes. obviously. there is no arguing that there was a foul committed. the only argument is wether or not you make such a call to decide the game on. i say no, and if you watch the final minute of the boston/detroit game last night, you can see things going on that, as van gundy said, "if you did that on the streets of manhattan they'd throw you in jail." but they weren't called.. why? it's the F'ing playoffs. that's why. it's an accepted fact that refs are going to swallow the whistles down the stretch, and that you're going to have to get absolutely hammered to get a call that could potentialy decide the game and/or the series. brent barry did not get hammered. he got fouled. the decision to let it go was the right decision, in my mind.

and as for the NBA... i absolutely hate when leagues do this. if it's a clock error? fine. but this is a judgement call. what the league should have said was something along the lines of "referees are paid to make judgement calls and they made one here. not eveyone will always agree with their decisions, but such is life. we stand by the decision not to call a foul."

what's next? "major league baseball would like to state that the ball 3 in the 4th inning was clearly a strike, and should have been called. by the umpire calling that a ball, when it should have been a strike, it lead to an increased pitch count, which lead to the stupid manager taking the pitcher out earlier than he should have, which lead to the bullpen blowing the game, as they are prone to do, 'cause the bullpen in question blows. our sincere appologies."
