It's going to take more than just Dirk and Monta. Going to need others to step up to avoid the sweep

Did he think he was making fashion statement? Like... whotf are you appealing to with that, unless you're just bein demonstrative for the gay/trans-gender community? Which is cool, but it would be the first I've seen from Harden on that tip.

That's very open-mindend an SF of you.

The San Francisco Warriors accept you in 2017 my friend.

But really, you're incapable of laughing at that? Dude wore a mini-skirt. PC nation cracks me up. edit: Too real.

U drinking tonight Tre? Haha.

Naw,I'm just saying. He's 25 years old. He thinks he has "swag."

No one here is following his dressing style. It's all about his game.

It'd be like if I said , "man those dubs players love sticking their tongues out at dudes(green,speights)..that how yall roll bay area fans? (well some of them do but nevertheless)."

It's just too early to start the p***ing contest. :)

Just love him and take care of him and he will be unforgettable. I never owned one before but have owned mutts, pits, rotts, and a Dobie and Akita has always been a respected breed by myself and many dog lovers who have experience with them. Beautiful and strong creatures.

Dallas has to be kicking themselves for the Rondo trade. They would have been a top 5 team in the West if they never made that trade.

IIRC, they were top 5 before they made that trade.

Aminu is the unsung hero. He's always been a good defender/rebounder. His issue is he can't shoot for sh** and fouls a lot but the tools are there. He's got that Kevin Durant/Giannis build. He's like 6'8 with a 7'4 wingspan or something crazy like that.

SF8
04-27-2015, 12:02 AM
The reason why I think the Rockets can't win a title with current roster is because their entire team is Harden. If he has a bad day, their done for that game. Or if the opposing team concentrates on him as a whole and neutralizes him, their done.

Their 3rd best player is Josh freakin Smith man.

Dallas just has too many weapons and veteran experience on the roster. Barrea. Dirk. Villanueva. Ellis. Amare. Chandler. Aminu. If they get it going they really can't be stopped.

04-27-2015, 12:06 AM
I can't wait for the chance to play Houston if we can beat the Spurs. I truly believe it would be the Clippers first WCF appearance in a 6 game series win. Rockets had an awesome year and Howard looks recharged but Griffin/Paul kill the Rockets every time. With Griffin in the lineup the Clippers have only lost once to the Rockets in 3 years I believe. This year 2-2 (one without Griffin) and sweep two prior years if I'm remembering correctly.

They would have been better off acquiring anyone else then. Do you remember all the PGs that got traded this season? Almost any of them would have been better choices

1) PG Brandon Knight traded to the Suns

2) PG Michael Carter-Wiliams traded to the Bucks

3) PG Goran Dragic traded to the Heat

4) PG Reggie Jackson traded to the Pistons

5) PG Pablo Pigroni traded to the Rockets

6) PG Isaiah Thomas traded to the Celtics

7) PG Norris Cole traded to the Pelicans

8) PG DJ Augustin traded to the Thunder

9) PG Andre Miller traded to Kings

10) PG Ish Smith traded to the Pelicans

12) PG Ramon Sessions traded to the Wizards

13) PG Isaiah Canaan traded to the 76ers

Mavs looked good, I felt so wild card about them because of how good they looked early, then how bad they fell off late. Looks like their back to form. Houston is still in control, fighting off one elimination game when ur down 3-0 isn't really enough to turn the tide. This next game is the one Hou gotta take, or else then they'll have some pressure on them.

3)Like soneone already said, it's not like he sticks his tongue out at guys while running down the court.

4)With what he's done for this team, he can wear whatever he wants. Pretty sure most fans think the same thing about their star players' attire.

5)Harden might have worn a horrendous whatever that thing was, but at least he didn't invite lol, please over. Sober tredigs is going to be hating hungover tredigs. "What's your biggest regret after a night of drinking? Bang a nasty dog? Get arrested? Talk smack and got your *** kicked?" "No, I invited an Internet troll over to party.

Westbrook wore basically the same thing. I think it's a brand. I'm not in my 20's, black or rich so I have a different style then those guys.

Houston beat themselves last night.

They came out the gates running and were up by 10, then missed 15 straight shots... Shooting terribly from the FT line... 25% from 3-pt range I believe.

That won't happen again.

Series will be over in 5.
