    Poll: The drop off from their 80s stuff (Surfer Rosa...

    The drop off from their 80s stuff (Surfer Rosa and Doolittle) is steep. I'm glad ZZ Top and the Misfits got mentioned - they're among my favorites too. Beastie Boys never even entered my mind but I...

    I totally agree, the only people in the discussion for great perimeter defenders IMO are the ones who do it nightly. They study for it, it's part of the gameplan, and if it works you win the game...

    The type of God people worship more often reflects who they are as a person and their community values than any sort of communal notion of morality. That is to say, religious doctrine is what you...

    Yeah like others have said, a lot goes into this. Having your PG chuck 3s while CP3 is defending him is just poor basketball, that's part of why it's rarely done. Credit to him for being the best...

    Pixies should be in poll - they're probably my favorite. I voted Heads though, to make a choice among the poll options. I pretty much like every band listed except Femmes and Motley Crue. The...

    I never said Lebron was bad. But if all you can do is defend your position at a solid level that makes you a solid defender - not a DPOY runnerup caliber defender. I've been watching Barkley - you...

    Yeah, people tend to underrate guys like Bird, Barkley, and Magic. Or alternatively, and probably in your case, overrate Lebron. Lebron was the best in transition among them, but he can't defend...

    People worry too much about what their teachers say and what books kids read. So long as they're reading something it barely matters, especially with how technical our world is. Left wing people...

    I think I usually go Duncan, KG, Barkley, Malone, Dirk. I've been watching some of the '92-'93 Suns lately though and I'm not sure Barkley isn't #2. He was more of a handful than Malone in the low...

    It wouldn't be a highlight reel featuring Harden without him getting lost in transition on defense and jogging slowly as his man gets an uncontested dunk.

    Best peak? No way. Duncan has 12 seasons over 10 WS to KG's 9. From 98/99 to 09/10 Duncan beats him .222 to .209 in WS/48. Best 5 year peak is basically knotted up (.234 WS/48 from 99/00 to 03/04...

    Dunno. You're the one whining about nobody telling you what songs to listen to, as though you want to understand why they hold such an important place in rock history.

    For guitar rock, I'm not sure anyone in the 80s was doing anything more interesting than SY. Pixies were certainly doing interesting stuff that portended a lot of what would come, but even though...

    Sounds like you just don't like them - but in case you for some reason want to try more: Day Dream Nation is pretty consistent throughout, but in addition to Teen Age Riot you could check out Total...

    I haven't really been disappointed by any of my most favorite bands, but at the same time none of them are among the best live shows I've seen. The closest I've come to disappointment by a band I...

    Hmm I saw Sigur Ros once and even though I have nothing against their music I thought the show was really boring. Pretty much every hip hop show I've been to was mediocre or bad.

    I like some Sonic Youth but I think even when they were current they were dad rock for hipsters. I feel towards them like I do much of Velvet Underground's discography - some pretty cool stuff here...

    I said he went nuts in the final 3 blowouts. 23.7/9.3/2.3 with 2 steals and 2 blocks was his line for those 3 games FYI. For a guy who, as Pop said after the series, didn't get any plays called for...

    As a NO fan I can't really blame Paul for the playoffs. His only really good shot was 08 when they took the Spurs to 7 and he went for 24/10 on good efficiency. I think it was kind of weak of him...

    I use OPS+ to quickly glance at peaks because BR makes selecting seasons so easy. FG doesn't, at least their free version, so I don't bother messing with advanced sorters unless I'm really...

    Meh, anyone that watched the Spurs playoff run in '14 knows Duncan was the best player. It'll be a cool footnote for NBA history I guess - that time the future HOF old guy led one of the 4 or 5...
