I was originally going to title this thread "Did Jermaine Oneal damn himself?" decided against it thinking the mods wouldnt stand for such a meaningless thread. But this is basically my quote


"I'm built for this," O'Neal said. "This is playoff basketball and I'm built for this. You can keep taking hard fouls on me and I'm going to keep getting up. People do things and say things; I don't take it personally. The fouls after the whistle I didn't like, but it's part of the game. Getting angry only makes you lose focus and make mistakes, so I'll be more cautious next game, but not angry. Like I said, I'm built for this."

Thoughts?

My thoughts were-

Latrell Sprewell: "I gotta feed my kids man."
Ron Artest: "I drank Henessey at halftime."
Stephon Marbury: "I smoke weed all time time."
Josh Howard: "I smoke weed in the off season."
Michael Jordan: "Everone sucks, especially Byron Russell."
Karl Malone: "I wont play if Magic plays."

Although some are not that severe why in the hell would you ever say anything like that? Especially if your staking millions of dollars on it!

You guys need some marinol in your system. Jermaine Oneal was talking about how his body was BUILT for the beating, do you think what he said was prophetic or damning?

O'Neal just jinxed himself. He shoulda knocked on wood or tossed salt over his right shoulder.

oh ok I just got it.

This is from a few years back.

Now I gotcha Chronz.

Yeah it certainly looks like he damned himself. i think it's a coincidence. most NBA bigs get injured.


here's something for you that i'm sure you've seen.


I've never seen a more chilling example of a "death prophecy" than the one offered by basketball legend Pistol Pete Maravich. On January 5, 1988, Maravich died of a heart attack while playing in a pick-up game with friends. Incredibly, Maravich predicted this event 13 years earlier.

On Thursday, January 7, 1988, the Associated Press issued the following wire report:

Maravich had premonition 13 years ago in interview
Associated press

BEAVER, Pa. - Pete Maravich, in a 1974 interview with the Beaver County Times, said, "I don't want to play 10 years in the NBA and die of a heart attack at age 40.' He played pro ball for exactly 10 years and died Tuesday at age 40.

This is about KG

"That’s a cheap shot by a low-class type player. You don’t do that. That’s gay on his part. I told him that he was gay, too, for touching me in my private parts." – Francisco Elson

here's something for you that i'm sure you've seen.

Yea I went out and bought his book the week I heard that. I did a complete 180 on what I thought of him as a player before that book. I still think people overrate him but he was a legend and definitely ahead of his time. I wonder what he had, I have had similar premonitions with my heart problems but I pray to god that Im not as accurate as he was. Good one bro, that one really hit home.

Marbury: "i am the best PG in the NBA."

People talk about the lopsides Billups for AI trade...but the Marbury-Kidd trade was just as lopsided...if not more.

I remember once Stephon Marbury mentioned about being the best point guard in the game, ever since then everything went downfall for him and the Knicks organization.

"First of all, I wouldn't want him on my team. You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States." - Tim Hardaway

Of course he wasn't playing at the time, but that ended his after playing jobs with the NBA

I was visiting orlando when I was younger and in this restaurant there was a bill board that had a bunch of famous shaq quotes (during the time when he played for orlando), one of which was:

"I can shoot with my left hand and equally as well with my right... i'm amphibious"

:facepalm:

Sasha Vujacic - "I will be the best SG on the Lakers" right after signing his deal

Kobe and Fish are still scared to lose their spots to this day lol
