    He's wasted on a team like Chicago. He can score in the low post all day, every day. Even the lack of defense isn't that major an issue. It's the fact that he can do little else. He gets 7-8...

    The fallacy of preconceived outcomes...

    It may have worked out or it may have not worked out. Playing styles are one aspect. Personalities are another. Most objective observers will point out...

    This is exactly right. I know that there are some Laker fans who are playing revisionist history on this but Kobe absolutely forced his way onto the Lakers AND everyone knew Shaq was going to be a...

    I don't agree. Houston is beautiful, it's cheap, good coach, good team. If they can make it work financially, it's a very attractive landing spot for any FA.

    Here's my two cents on this topic...

    It showed significant insensitivity on Houston's part. All you had to do was tell Lin you were doing it and then tell him that if in fact Carmelo does decide...

    I'm not going to respond to all of your notes just this one...

    I agree with a lot of what you're saying but not all of it.

    There really is no "perfect" fit for Carmelo. In my estimation the...

    I believe I just read this morning that Bosh is also seeking a max contract. The Miami Heat era is over...

    Poll: Yes BUT Russell sorely outplayed him AND shut him...

    Yes BUT Russell sorely outplayed him AND shut him down. One of the reasons Wilt gets overlooked was that he essentially had one peer and that was Russell and yet, head-head, Russell seemed to have...
  10. Poll: I agree, Duncan was very impressive. No one is...

    I agree, Duncan was very impressive. No one is denying that. This wouldn't be a discussion if Duncan wasn't an all-time great player.

    The point made was that Hakeem had to play that way more...
  11. Poll: Your logic is severely flawed. In '99 Kobe...

    Your logic is severely flawed. In '99 Kobe wasn't "Kobe" just yet and David Robinson was in fact still David Robinson. The team also had Will Perdue and all three of them were able to guard Shaq at...
  12. Poll: "flopping" didn't exist back then. Did you...

    "flopping" didn't exist back then.

    Did you mean he kept losing in the first round? No one does it alone. It takes a team to get there. Hakeem didn't have a great team until about '92-93.
  13. Poll: Good counter. Let me rephrase... Did Tim...

    Good counter. Let me rephrase...

    Did Tim Duncan, without David Robinson, beat Shaq in his prime? The answer would be 'no'. It matters.
  14. Look this is a crazy debate to get into but,...

    Look this is a crazy debate to get into but, seriously, come on. In Game 6 vs Sacramento the Lakers were getting blown out. Then the whistle starts blowing and they shoot 27 free throws?? You...

    How do you attribute the first threepeat to Kobe's ability to win? He was not the 1 option on the first threepeat. No argument that he was the second option though.

    There's no such thing as...
  16. Poll: No you couldn't. This response may be...

    No you couldn't.



    This response may be out of context but KG is not on the level of any of the elite Centers in Hakeem's day.



    None of those players are on the level of the players in...

    I mostly agree with this. I agree in the sense that it is silly to compare different positions because in the scheme of a basketball game/on a team, each role is required to do different things. We...

    This is the epitome of favorable opining.

    First, 2 of the 3 most suspicious NBA officiating in a series event came during the Laker threepeat. There is no question the Lakers received favorable...

    So by your logic, getting Melo for the #1 pick in what is considered to be the best draft in a very, very long time is a fair exchange?

    It's not crazy. But it's not happening. This doesn't fit...

    It's arguable if he was the #1 guy for either title. It's a widely held opinion that Wilt played on Jerry West's team.

    Either way, I've ignored the "Losing record in the Finals" discussion...

    Didn't Kobe take 46 shot attempts in the 81 point game? And these things were always a criticism of Jordan. Always.



    You just answered why he gets a pass. He had much better shot selection,...

    Your argument goes both ways, however. All those coaches were also on the way out and firing them would not have impacted the player's decision one way or the other. In each instance that you...

    Technically that would Poppovich. But Spoelstra is a close second!

    By extension it also shows those who completely overstate Kobe's ranking as well?

    I know I'm not 'anti-Laker' or 'anti-Kobe' in any way and yet trying to have rational discussions has only dragged...

    The same switching assignments he flourished under the year before?

    Isn't it more likely that Shumpert's injuries took a bigger toll than we know. Let's see what he does this year. The fact...
