    Remember when you were trying to get everybody to believe that aliens built the Sun Gate at Tiwanaku, Bolivia? One of your sparkling comebacks was a statement outta left field about all your playing and coaching experience...

    Sly was in on that thread as well...

    No, I don't remember saying the crap you're spewing. I can see you take bits and pieces of all kinds of things and either can't comprehend them or blow them up willy nilly to look idiotic. Like trying to make a pig muddy you kind of get quite a bit on yourself. You butt still stinging from some OLive whooping previous or something? Cuz I can't remember but you're obviously carrying some mental burden. Your cross brother. (Dragon?)

    I agree his chasedown blocks are great, but he gets lost in "no man's land" in transition often.

    For example, late in the clock say Andre is involved in a pnr at the top of the key and drives to the hole w/ Nic spaced and stationed in the right corner. Nic should work his towards the top of the key to fill Andre's area soon after the screen is set and assume the responsibility of the first man back in transition. Too often last season I saw Nic float to the elbow and watch. The rebound would carom off the rim and he would then get back. This is "no man's land" transition D. You either crash the o-boards or run your ass back.

    Bayless has this same problem.

    LOL, I found it in google cache...

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.c... "RiseWithDE" aliens&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    The "coaching" part began with "I've went to coaching" [sic]

    Still gonna deny it?

    Oh yes. Where in that thread did I say aliens built "Tiwanaku"? And I believe you were claiming you knew more about that place cuz you "visited Peru with an archeology friend" thus making you the forum expert on that subject, which i then replied "Oh good, since I've attended coaching clinics, you know to lay down about all my basketball opinions".

    You're not doing a good job following your own instruction and lessons. And you're still wrong on comprehension, memory...etc etc.

    I am afraid I'm going to have to deny you your fantasy.

    You're lucky the thread comment links are dead. While you can still lie about it, it's not very convincing anymore is it?

    Luck is not needed when speaking the truth. You've claimed I've said things I've never said. Doesn't matter how deep into Google cache you go, you're not going to find what you're dreaming up. Call google or OLive up, see if they can do you some favors. I'll wait.

    No it doesn't, not at all. Your comment was in reply to my statement that actual research involves more than watching some trash TV program about aliens. It was completely off the wall. All I was doing earlier in this thread was warning Stomp that you claimed to have attended coaching workshops. You denied that you made that claim, and I proved that you did make that claim. End of story. lol...

    lol...Don't make me "Google cache" about you and your archeology buddy going to Peru and how that added to your credentials on the subject ("off the wall" btw...how would i have any clue about that w/o you "informing" the forum).

    And again, you have reading comprehension problems. Me telling you "you must think attending coaching clinics is a big deal to fit in such a small skull" is not a denial I attended coaching clinics. (They're called clinics, Spammy...but maybe you attended a basketball game with a coach before or something and know better)... I do deny "informing" anyone about anything...except for you to shut your yapper about basketball since hanging out with "experts" makes my opinions better than yours according to your own screwed up logic.

    Live by your rules or don't cry when it bites you in the butt. "End of story".

    Considering he was going against two waves of elite NBA talent with France's bench, I thought he did well. Some are "gloating" that he didn't show much dimension beyond the jump shooting he does with the Blazers, but under the circumstances I saw glimpses of things he can do that he's not currently being utilized to do.
