to play football, not to play trumpet
So, we've had bad basketball discussed quite a bit on here. How about chatting about good basketball? The 1996 Bulls are widely seen as one of (if not the) best NBA teams ever, going 72-10 in the regular season and winning the title, only losing 3 playoff games. The Bulls were the #1 offensive team in the league and #1 defensive team in the league, ourscoring teams by about 12 ppg.
The Warriors are ridiculous, winning their first 23 games of the season, and outscoring teams by a ton.
My question is, which team wins a 7 game series? Let's do some stupid talk and get your Stephen A Smith voice out. The Warriors play small ball better than anyone, shoot 3s and dunks in a way that 90s teams didn't do. The Bulls went on a revenge tour and had Michael Jordan ready to kill fools.
PG: Curry vs. Ron Harper (Backup Steve Kerr)
SG: Klay Thompson vs. MJ
SF: Harrison Barnes/Andre Iguodala vs. Scottie Pippen
PF: Draymond Green vs. Dennis Rodman
C: Andrew Bogut vs. Luc Longley/Bill Wennington/John Salley
I think the Warriors (obviously) have an offensive advantage, especially at the 3 point line. The Bulls have more size and depth, plus the legitimately crazy MJ. Draymond Vs. The Worm might explode the world. The Bulls could probably run with the small ball warriors, putting Rodman on Green at the 5 and rolling with Kukoc as a proto-stretch-4. Who you got?
EDIT - Rules - your choice of 1990s rules (no hand checking, etc.) or today's. Also, no one has thrown a "HOWEVA" yet, your S-A-S voices need practice.
Makes sense, they've been using robots to design apparel for years.
I'm a DeLaSalle Alum and the following was posted on our alumni Facebook page:
To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Brad Ebenhoeh and I am an Aerospace undergrad at U of M.
I started out at De La Salle. I played piano for like everything. Also, I played clarinet. I had high hopes for myself.
I came to U of M way back in 2003. I played piano for 7 pm Newman choir at St. Mary's Catholic church and at the music school at U of M accompanying musical theater students. I was originally an Engineering Physics major, when the unthinkable happened. At age 19, I had suffered a massive brain hemorrhage (something called an AVM) on April 15th of 2005, which left me in a coma for several months, and in extensive rehab for years. It inititally left me in a vegetative state, with U of M's extensive rehab, I was able to relearn how to breath, swallow, speak, and to walk with assistannce. Unfortunately the damage was too severe and left me with many phsyical disabilities. I returned to Macomb Community College (where I live currently), and took as many courses as I could, and also tutored in math (including calc 3), pg, and chemistry. After this long journey, I now feel im ready to complete my engineering degree. It's been a longtime dream of mine to finish my degree at U of M. The insurmountable obstacles came to a head yesterday, when I was told that I may not be able to go back to school. There is too much to do; interviewing,hiring and training the workers. I am left in a predicament; my problem being I cannot get the funding needed from Macomb County for my caregivers. This is the first time anything like this has been attempted in our county.
The best way for me to communicate is through email, because what may take you 15 minutes to say, could take me a few hours.
I just need you to forward this on to as many people as possible. The more people, the better. All I am asking for is to be given the opportunity to go to U of M.
I reached out to him to get some clarification of his needs. He has been accepted for the winter term. He will be living in East Quad. The Assistive Technology Department has been very helpful and he's eager to get started.
Here's the challenge he's facing. He's working with an agency in Macomb County to get support staff to help him with his day-to-day activities. They have people in Macomb County that they typically work with but they don't have established relationships in Ann Arbor. He says he needs help finding 15 support people in Ann Arbor. He has so far only interviewed a handful of people and he's afraid he won't be ready when classes start next month.
I know we have some pretty amaizing people on this board who might be able to help. I don't know Brad but he can be reached at the above Facebook link.
Yesterday, 12/1/2015, was Giving Blueday at the University of Michigan. This campaign was planned in order to raise money for scholarships, various club sports, and basically any other University group that needed some extra funds. The totals were just released, and this years total was: $4,361,327 raised by 6927 donors.
Please stop. You're not funny. Even if you're poking fun at the others, you're adding to the problem. Shut up.
That said, post em here and you might get a laugh or two. There's a place for this bullcrap. Let's concentrate that place in one post.
Edit: for any newcomers, this was a response to several thousand completely unique and clever since-deleted threads with "DCC: [stupid joke]" as the title. If you have a hilarious new twist on this concept, post it here.
