it's the "I hate the NBA so I will post random complaints on any NBA-related thread without any real explanation" troll!

You're watching but there's no way in hell you could win a title in the current NBA by running iso and trying to draw fouls. The top-tier defenses are just too good and most players aren't good enough to live off of the drive game alone; this sort of play gets exposed during the playoffs. The most cited-to exception is the Dwyane Wade Heat title but that title was also partially won with typical Pat Riley defense and veteran leadership.

I don't consider chauncey a "big" upgrade from Felton; Felton was having a solid season and he is much more suited to run D'Antoni's offense than Billups. Plus, with Billups in the last year of his salary in 2012, he'll either be gone during next season and certainly afterwards, since the Knicks will most likely go after chris paul, who will have to take a pay cut to sign with the Knicks. Or by saying "big upgrade at PG" were you already banking on the possibility that the Knicks would pick up Paul after the 2012 season?
The nets can sign Williams to a max contract at any point after this season. He wanted to go to NY, it was just a question of what team, and the Knicks can't offer him the max. Prokhorov has 1.5 years to convince him that Brooklyn, Barclays Center, and a young, developing team is the right fit for him. I agree its a risky move but I think it was worth doing.

rather have a top 3 point guard than a scorer that can't play defense.
no extension for Williams yet. They have 1.5 seasons to convince him to stay, I'm sure Prokhorov can think of something.

you don't watch the NBA anymore belies your ability to credibly critique it. Your argument that "most teams are simply iso-get our guy to the All-Star Game franchises" is like saying that most NCAA football teams pay their players and routinely violate the rules, aka a gross overstatement.

how much influence Isiah has had in the 'Melo talks, but Woj seems to think it was an unfair deal, thus using that opinion to reinforce his position that Isiah was front and center in the deal. I think the deal is ok for the Knicks this season, and will pay its dividends in the following seasons once the Chauncey contract is off the books next year and Chris Paul makes his expected jump to NYC.
Melo was going to NYC no matter what happened, and that's what drove the deal, not Isiah. Totally agreed though that Dolan should not be the owner of the Knicks and Isiah shouldn't even be allowed to fly into JFK let alone step foot in MSG.

got robbed - he dunked by jumping BEFORE the foul-line and toy dunk was ridiculous also. it's a hometown crowd though so I'm not surprised Blake made the finals.

are supposed to be a fun, entertaining experience for the fans and obviously should not be taken as a representation of the day-to-day product of the league. It's also an opportunity to watch the most amazing athletes in the world do ridiculous things. I love UM football but dude you have to chill out.
and no i'm not Stern

very excited for barnett in this class - no wonder Hoke gave the pseudo fist pump during the presser.

seasonings like natural herbs and plants, such as bentgrass or bermuda, which he picks himself, naturally.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||the rumor||
was that he was in AZ to talk to Gruden bc Gruden is doing media for the BCS Champ game.
Or he just wanted to chill at his vacation crib.

actually disciplining people? He's been spending too much time in The Grove.

Rarely see annoying OSU fans here, thankfully. To be fair though, if you were stuck in the hellhole that is Columbus during football season rather than the warmer confines of CA, that would definitely have an effect on your temperment.

Rosenberg is turning into the unofficial villain of MGoBlog; you can imagine him cackling gleefully in his dark basement whenever something bad happens to UofM. Actually don't imagine it, because I'm sure that's what actually happens.
