    Typical RW to ask for a video replay when the game was basically over, knowing full well that the ball clearly went off of him, and there was zero chance of it being reversed. He just wanted to blame someone else for the loss.

    Where you get into trouble is when you call someone a feminine word as an insult. Same thing as when people use the word "gay" as an insult.

    Yeah. As soon as some people feel uncomfortable with something they immediately go defensive. Using the word Gay to describe something is not a good look at all. Other than actually being Gay.

    I'm gonna leave this conversation alone. Seems to be taking a turn that was never meant to take. No way this conversation has anything to do with Russel Westbrook shaking Lillard's hand after a game which was my original comment. I never even brought Bitch or Gay into it. I did bring Panties into it i guess but those might be worn by any number of people right?

    Would Biiiaaaatch be better?

    It shouldnt, unless its intentional.

    There is one thing we all must remind ourselves is that we cant control how we were brought up.

    I was brought up saying the word Gay and using it in an intelligence factor.

    That is Gay, meant it was stupid.

    Long before my time it meant to be happy.

    So times change and the social definition changes, but you cant expect all people everywhere to constantly keep up.

    Now if someone has been enlightened and then they continue, that's another story.

    But I believe I used the word gay once in here for this reason, and Sly pm'ed me and educated me and I haven't used it sense.

    Don't let it upset you. Educate the one that is upsetting you. If they refuse, slap their dumbass in the face and move on. :)

    We don't always know what is going to be offensive to others and i'm not gonna walk on egg shells trying to figure it out. But if I say something and the majority of people say its offensive, I might disagree, but im not going to continue to say the offending word.

    So you are finally admitting you wear panties?

    I don't think anyone around here will find that as a surprise. :)

    I don't know, it sounds a little sexist and racist. I just don't want this site to be a "white boys are the only ones that only feel comfortable" club

    Considering this is a forum for a sport made up of 90% Black men, that would be upsetting to me too.

    I watch the Houston game again I focus on Zach. 1st half offense made some good play and miss couple bunny's at the rim. Defense he hesitate few times to go challenge a shot. 2nd half the offense was about the same as the 1st half. Defense he was pretty damn good he got switched on Westbrook a couple times and shut him down both times. Covington was pretty got shut down too. Took one shot against and challenge it for a miss. But overall majority of the game the whole team play pretty good defense.

    Yeah, I really think Zach's future is really bright. He's missing a lot of shots but that's because his injury was a shoulder injury, which meant no shooting. I think the rust will come off and he'll be another threat for us offensively, soon. You are right about his defense, he's very impressive. He is so athletic and competitive... if he just keeps his fouls under control he'll be a legit defensive stopper who can protect the paint and switch onto smaller players.

    CJ was total trash. Zach also terrible today. Whiteside was whitebread today terrible. Melo was bad also. Thank God for Michael Jordan. I mean Dame Lillard.

    CJ wasn’t all bad. Shot 60% from 3 and helped us set the record. 6 boards, 6 assists.

    This is the Rockets game thread. CJ played very well against the Rockets.
