Nets tried to gain future capspace and international flavor by trading RJ.

They also didn't feel Vince & RJ could co-exist.

Nah, I knew they cleared cap-space. I feel the trade wasn't good though. Trading for size rather than good players. Granted, Yi wasn't that bad sometimes, but yeah.

"Stretch 4" is a term I always hated, maybe not because of the idea. Just seems like a lot of players unjustly get anointed.

KingPosey

"Swag", "swagga", any of that garbage. Its a meaningless term, and a bunch of turds jumped on the phrase because they think it makes them sound cool.

also, "WITH NO REGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE!!!"...... WTF did that mean? It made no sense, and was about 100 million times over the top of good commentating.

If you think about it, where does the expression "grab the board" come from? Yeah it's a backBOARD, but you want to grab the ball and not the backboard. I like the term though, just because it comes off the tongue easier when you're in the heat of the moment. "MY BOARD", "GET DAT BOARD"

But terms I can't stand are mainly ones that the college announcers use. "Put a little ENGLISH on it!" "With a KISS"

"Now that's a Gay facial"

I don't care if he dunks over a 7 footer, they can say Rudy, they dont have to use his last name...it often leads to awkward moments. I'm sure Rudy doesnt mind people using his last name, I heard he is very proud of his name, some may even say he has Gay pride, but when the commentator says "Memphis goes up on a Gay jump shot," something just seems off to me.

Anytime the announcer says "penetration". They always seem to use it in the most perverted ways as well. "He is so good at penetrating deep", "Did you see that backdoor penetration?" etc.
