Houston and Cleveland await their opponent.
Warriors and Boston
Blazers and Raptors, bitches. Believe harder.
At some point, I have to believe Lebron is going to run out of gas. I just don't know if Jason Tatum is the guy to make it happen...
I'd like Boston to send Lebron home for the summer, but people in hell want ice water, doesn't mean they are going to get it.
I've become such a Lebron fan the past 4 yrs. It's fun to root for him as the underdog.
What took you so long? One of the best ever. I was recording his HS games on ESPN. I learned to stop hating great players once I was probably in my mid 20s. Spending so much of my time hating guys like Bird and Stockton, Kevin Johnson and Karl Malone, and not sitting back and enjoying their greatness was a huge mistake.
Always been a fan of his esp since I went to school in CLE for four years and watched nearly every one of their games during that time. But I've become a super fanboy since his return to CLE.
He's amazing. If you guys can get a chance to watch him live just once, do it.
How anybody could hate on him is mind blowing.
The guy spends over 1.5 M a year to train and condition his body. Has his own personal biomechanist who was a Navy SEAL.
I've seen him live a couple times here in Portland. One time I had very good seats, close to the court, and the thing that impressed me most was how quick his feet are for a guy so big and powerful. It was really amazing to see this up close and in person. His greatness is obvious, even on TV, but I was blown away seeing a guy with the size and strength of a power forward with feet as quick as any 5'11'' point guard. I don't think that fully comes through watching him on TV, even in HD on a 70" screen. Some things you just have to see in person to fully appreciate.
No wonder the guy is damn near impossible to guard. Put a big player on him and he blows by them like they are running in quicksand. Put a small player on him and he easily overpowers them. Put a medium size player on him, and he is both stronger and quicker.
The guy is definitely a unique talent.
He's always been one of my daughter's favorite players. She read the his biography (by Lew Freedman) when she was 11 and has been a fan ever since.
I admit, I thought he was a drama queen about the whole "The Decision" thing, but it never stopped me from appreciating his talent on the floor.
I hope she is a closet Westbrook fan! I'm going to send her a signed Russ jersey for christmas.
Nope, she's was raised right. So, she's naturally not a fan of stat padding losers.
Is it really that hard for people to hate a player and appreciate their greatness at the same time? I couldn't stand Malone, but I consider him the best PF of all-time until Duncan took over the honor.
Man, stealing a kid's shoes on Christmas. Does it get any lower than that?
You're a mean one, Mr. Russ
You really are a heel
You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel, Mr. Russ
You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel!
You're a monster, Mr. Russ
Your heart's an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders, you have garlic in your soul, Mr. Russ
I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole!
You're a foul one, Mr. Russ
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Russ
Given a choice between the two of you I'd take the seasick crocodile!
You're a vile one, Mr. Russh
You're a nasty wasty skunk
Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk, Mr. Russ
The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote
"Stink, stank, stunk"!
You And everyone in here would take the 20mil he made from airing it though.
When someone's handing you that much money to broadcast your FA choice (unprecedented), you take the money and you tell others to STFU.
Well, yeah. I would take the money and not give a fuck if everyone in the world thought I was a drama queen. I wouldn't even tell them to STFU. I'd thank them for tuning in and making that $20 million possible.
If only being a drama queen on this forum paid that well, we'd have a few billionaires in our midst.
