Derrick Rose Gets Revenge Against Indiana; Kendrick Perkins Does The Unexpected

Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose (photo. adidas)

Listening to Derrick Rose the last few days, it felt like a Michael Corleone moment. All this talk about the Pacers celebrating the last time they beat Chicago, and how Rose didn’t forget anything and couldn’t wait to play them again, we pictured him seeking out his own Al Neri and saying, “Nothing is to happen to them until I say so.” We were waiting for him to pull out the little boat, pack the Pacers into it and send them out on the lake. Rose and the Bulls decided on the third quarter as the appropriate time for revenge in their 92-72 win last night. The Pacers were up 47-44 at one point. Barely 12 minutes of game action later, the scoreboard read Chicago: 77, Indiana: 56. The Bulls simply turned it up on defense, outscoring the Pacers 33-13 in the third, and were so balanced, Rose didn’t even have to do anything (13 points, nine assists). Chicago was so good they had the Pacers’ TV guys handing out living advice in the fourth quarter, telling the audience to remember “There’s life tomorrow.” … Is it possible to be an All-Star big man and score two points in a game that really mattered against perhaps your chief rival? Yes, we’re looking at you Roy Hibbert. Somehow the coaches said he was good enough for Orlando, but Rajon Rondo and Josh Smith weren’t. Smoove might’ve decided to launch a couple of threes or forget to play defense at times, but we’re guaranteeing he would’ve contributed more than one basket had it been him in there last night … Barely a minute into the game, Rip Hamilton hit his shoulder on a screen and headed immediately to the locker room with his shoulder looking pretty screwed up. That dude is made of glass this year … Down three in the closing moments, CP3 was fouled by Derrick Williams on a triple. Not even Martell Webster would’ve done something that stupid. Wait…never mind. But to L.A.’s chagrin, the third foul shot was so off that there was actually speculation over whether CP (18 points) missed it on purpose. The Wolves got the board and the W, 95-94. In one of the few times he’s gotten the better of Blake Griffin (26 points, 12 rebounds) head-to-head since they started matching up in the pros, Kevin Love went absolutely crazy (39 points, 17 rebounds, five treys) … At one point, we heard the Wolves’ color guy say this: “Griffin would never get the ball above his shoulders if I was in there guarding him.” Yeah okay buddy. If it was that easy, Kendrick Perkins would still have a Twitter account … Arron Afflalo had 32 and Ty Lawson hit the game-winning triple, but we were just glad to see Denver finally go away from randomly isolating Andre Miller in crunch time again in their 119-116 OT win against the Kings … And the Blazers got 19 from Nic Batum in their 12-point thrashing of the Hornets … Keep reading to hear the unexpected thing Kendrick Perkins did …

    i like watching espn. i was thinking about some of the sexy sports talkers out there. if i had to role a die, with a specific number attributed to me being awarded a night with anyone of these cuties, i don’t know if i’d be mad at where it lands. i just couldn’t choose on my own:

    1: michelle beadle
    2:sage steele
    3:rachel nichols
    4: lisa salters
    5: erin andrews
    6: hannah storm (milf luv)

  • Nora

    Friffin scored 4 points in the 4th guarded by Darko. Dime get over your worship Griffin whose game is limited to dunks and can’t hit foul shot to save his life

  • Chainfire

    man, Kevin Love is beast! Definitely the best power forward in the game right now.

  • silky

    is it too early to trade or amnesty ‘max player’ nené. glass man 2.0…

  • UncheckedAggression

    This is ridiculous. They finally put Rose in the title and just happen to leave out the fact that he’s the best player in the world! I’m so sick of this Rose-hate, I’m gonna flucking vomit!

  • 4M

    Woah did unchecked just got caught and forgot to change his username to chicagorilla or is he just mocking him? Either way, ruh-roh.

    I just hope KLove doesn’t fall in Love with 3s. He shot 10 last night. Even though he’s 3pt shooting king, 10 is too much. But I know it’s more of an outlier than the norm. Also, Rubio, please get your shit back together.

    I would prefer to have the Suns and Twolves in the playoffs rather than Houston and an injury-riddled Nuggets. Lo and behold, Lakers are now numero uno in the Pacific.

  • sh!tfaced

    just call em nene hilarious… for now

  • sh!tfaced

    and hell yeah, espn naked news… make it happen. lol

    as long as the hosts do their thing… still gonna love em even if they dont speak a lick of english…

    Al Jefferson with seven assists! Nice.

    If Pau Gasol indeed ends up in Minnesota, as mentioned in trade rumors, how good can this team be? They would be a scary match-up in the playoffs for the next two years.

    I miss some of the old guys here. Wonder where Tyrone, Jurg, Kobeef, Three Stacks, and Sam I Am are today? Anyone who was around Smack for a long time would attest that those were fun days. They made sense. They were weird but funny. They made Smack lively.

    “The sentimental fool don’t see. Tryin’ hard to recreate”

  • yoda

    @ alf

    Jurg drops few lines from time to time (if that’s really him). others, haven’t noticed around.

    btw today is shaq’s 40th birthday. damn! i remember him when he was young player in orlando. i’m getting old

  • http://www.zwani.com/graphics/funny_pictures/images/88funny-pictures128.jpg JAY

    @sh!tfaced… have you, or anyone else here, seen some of the hispanic countries’ weather girls?? OMG. Nice & thick and wearing tight clothing. That’s my kind of forecast. I don’t even care what their saying…. they’re always turned sideways to point at the bluescreen and those booties are scrumptious.

    Thank you Derozan for missing that layup. You are the man! Bargnani’s return is around the corner and it has me shitting bricks. But it’s around that time of year when Jose usually misses some games. I hope he stubs a toe.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7Er5TsQrGg alf (from melmak)

    @ yoda

    I have seen those posts and I highly doubt if that was the real Jurg.

    Speaking of Shaq. Between him and Rasheed Wallace, who was the bigger “could have, should have, would have”? Both had very huge upside but unfortunately, for the two of them and us basketball fans, they never realized them.

    @ JAY

    Watch women’s tennis instead. Those are the hottest girls outside of Hollywood. And I bet you, with them being athletes, you would be the first to give up on any bed activity with them. Just take away the thought of Venus Williams — she belongs in a horror flick.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9RJbLV98fI Showtime

    Tough one but I’ll have to go with Erin Andrews

  • sh!tfaced

    @ JAY – man. forget i said naked news lol. hispanic weather girls are the best. they wear the skimpiest shit. top of my head, that mayte chic never fails to impress… haha

  • Sporty-j

    @Bieb

    I always liked Lisa Salters. I saw her on like an ESPN 30 or 1 of those shows and she made a muscle. I was like dam that bit#% is built like Serena Williams.

    @Alf

    I was wondering whatever happened to STUNNABOY2K11. Cats stay dissappearing around here. Anyway lets go HEAT. Chris “THE RAPTOR” Bosh for 50 points tonight…

  • http://www.zwani.com/graphics/funny_pictures/images/88funny-pictures128.jpg JAY

    @alf: “And I bet you, with them being athletes, you would be the first to give up on any bed activity with them.”
    – Was that a diss? Lol! It started off reading like a compliment, but ended off in… “you of all people JAY wouldn’t sleep with them.”

    Ouch, alf. Bastard.

    I know what you mean about the women tennis players. Their legs are PERFECT. Wrap them around your waist like a belt. I might get belt loops big enough for legs… just get the lady to slide her legs in them and I could walk around the house doing chores at the same time. Then as soon as I’m ‘done’ I’d cut the hoops ASAP cuz I don’t like being touched after I’m done. GTFOM!!!
    Just the thought of having a chick strapped to me after finishing gives me the shivers.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7Er5TsQrGg alf (from melmak)

    @ JAY

    Not a diss. There are a lot of guys, including me, who would love to spend a day with someone like Maria Kirilenko (I do not want to go with the obvious Ana Ivanovic answer)and get cozy with her.

    But then I get the feeling that if that ever happens with me and it ends in bed, I might disappoint her as I might not be able to last (perform) as long as she can or want me too.

  • That’s What’s Up

    Dime you should have mentioned Afflalo’s ice-cold three free throws to push it into OT.

    Kings fouled him on a three with 0.6 left on the clock. Afflalo calmy hits his first two and then the Kings call timeout. He comes back to the line after a few minutes and drains the last one. cold.

    Then the Kings ran some screen way too far away from the basket and SupaCracka Jimmer airballed it by about 8 feet.

    …and Jay, after I’m done I stay in the garden and keep gardening until my hoe gives out

  • yoda

    @ alf

    it’s hard to say it for 3 times finals mvp, one season mvp and 4 times nba champion, but i’d go with shaq. sheed was good, but he was always a mortal. if shaq had 50% of kobe’s work ethic, he would end his career as G.O.A.T. he wouldn’t have as much championships as Russel but he would have at least 7 if he and Kobe didn’t behaved as kids. Shaq was just too strong and too fast for this league.

    as for female athletes, i’d go with women’s volleyball. don’t get me wrong, tennis players are nice but volleyball ladies are so damn fine. being 6’3″ barefooted i appreciate tall ladies. and they have such nice tight bottoms. beach volleyball is heaven on earth :)

  • WinDelRoj

    Note on the Nuggets game:

    Is Tyreke Evans really that one dimensional all of the time? If he is driving he looks great, any other aspect of the game he looks average if not below average.

  • control

    For athletic women, the best I’ve had was a hockey player. 6’1-6’2 and 135lbs BUILT, god damn…she was a fellow Canadian living in Detroit too. Maaaaan, I don’t miss her much, but I miss her body.

  • Sporty-j

    Yoda at post 19 makes a good point. Those volleyball women surely are blessed. I might have to rent a stool just to get behind that a$$ properly but I don’t mind. It’s worth the PHUCK…

  • Big Island

    Love can fall in love with 3 pointers as far as I am concerned. He busts his ass on the boards, if I played with him or coached him, I would give him 4 a game easy. He earns a few shots.

    Beadle is nice. There are hotter chicks on ESPN, but she seems like she would be the best one to hang out with. And for someone who isn’t really attractive, I am absolutely in love with Rachel Nichols.

    I love athletic chicks man. Love em. Ironic since I am well past my prime as a halfway respectable athlete. I went out with a tennis player from Sweden when I was in college who had an INSANE body. She used to go to the basketball games with this brunette chick who was bananas. I usually go for darker hair and skin, but I was sprung on the blonde. I would see her when we had the intramural games and crap like that, but until my dick is inside of a girl, I have no clue if they like me or not. So it’s the last day of the semester before finals, and I grow my fake set of balls and tell my buddy that I am going to talk to her today if I see her (thinking I wouldn’t). So he says “See ya!” and points to her walking up the street. Crap. I shat my pants, but it was in the open air so it wasn’t too bad. She literally said she waited all semester for me to talk to her. FML. I was also wearing my gold Michigan Webber jersey so you know this is going to end badly.

    So date night rolls around. I had a beat up 85 Celica hatchback and a badass 93 GSXR 750. I lend my buddy the bike so I can borrow his 5.0, I wasn’t fucking around. I pick her up and she lives right next door to the house that my buddy’s dad owns as a rental property. We spent all summer there digging up the driveway, running gas lines etc… I knock on the door and the brunette answers the door (THEY WERE FRIGGIN ROOMMATES) in panties and a little tank top. I was rock hard in like .362 seconds, and I saw Asa (pronounced OH-sa) upstairs in panties and a tank top too. I nutted, can’t lie. So we head out on the corny college date. Miniature golf, bowling, Chili’s, all of that crap. We get back and she invites me in. I am fully prepared. I did my pre-nut when I picked her up so staying power would not be an issue. This is where things went south. Quickly.

    She has on the mini mini shirt, insane legs, little half shirt with abs like a stack of poker chips, great tits, no bra, pokies. She grabs me and kisses me….and I freak out. The single worst kiss I have had in my life. I repeat, it was the single worst kiss I have ever had in my entire life. I went from trying to hide a hard on to not knowing if I even had a dick anymore. I opened my eyes and looked for a camera or something because I figured someone was setting me up. No way could anyone kiss this badly. No way. I split. Ran for the hills. Exited stage left. Made like a bread truck and hauled buns. Made like a shepherd and got the flock outta there. Booty called a chubby chick and called it a weekend.

    Yesterday Lebron got a lot of flack for carrying that handbag… or “toiletry bag”, as a fellow Dime poster so considerately pointed out. Wade was almost unscathed…. but I just saw a better photo. If the dude who was standing up for these guys yesterday doesn’t understand why I said “I wouldn’t be surprised if Wade and LBJ came out of the closet” after seeing this photo, then I can’t help him understand. The photo speaks for itself.

    http://i2.cdn.turner.com/si/2011/writers/eric_mack/07/08/nfl-fantasy-running-backs/lebron-james.jpg

    Looks like Lebron is going for some schoolboy/nerdy/preppy/cowboy hybrid look… WTF is Wade going for?? The gay club look? And what happend to his socks?? Sockless in leather dress shoes is fuckin disgusting. It’s not about fashion, it’s about being stank!
    I said it yesterday and I stand by my words today… I wouldn’t be surprised if they said they were gay. Wade more than Lebron. smh

    Please, David Stern… remove the dress code. This shit is getting ridiculous.

  • Big Island

    My ex was a volleyball player, incredible body. She should be a Navy SEAL. My gf now just fights and does all of that XGames crap. Snowboard, wakeboard, skydiving, actual kickboxing… My dog jumped on the bed the other morning and they banged heads. Blood everywhere and she is laughing. I thought her lip got split but it was her nose. She’s just in the bathroom laughing with blood pouring out of her face. If you guys don’t see me here for 3 consecutive days without me saying I am leaving town, call the cops. My body will be somewhere off of Kanan Road on the way to Malibu. She will kill me.

    @Jay

    Someone told me about Wade outfit and i didn’t believe them. I thought “No way would a grown a$$ man from the southside of Chicago be wearing some Kapri like pants”
    This photo has proven me wrong.
    6’4, 230lbs rocking a muscle shirt with Kapri pants and penny loafers of some sort.

    Add that to the fact that this 6’8 270lb guy walking next to him is dressed like he’s Jack Tripper from Threes company and you have the gayest duo in basketball.

    For a while now i have been slowly pushing Wade away as a Chicagoan. He pisses me off sometimes with his “I want to be a model” persona. this shyt right here may have done the trick though.

    Honorable mention of females sports athelics I use to want to KNOCK THE DUST OFF THAT PU$$Y would have to also go to Chamique Holdclaw. I use to have the biggest crush on her until I found out she got pregnant. Than I was like PHUCK that Hoe and was on to the next 1. We could have had a lot of young beautiful SPOTTY-J’s together but she ruined her chance with me once she ruined her basketball career. Anyway carry on ladies and my next target is that tall sexy bit%$ Britney Grinder. I’ve got to have a piece of that Dikembay Mutombo. It would also make her game better…

  • First & Foremost

    @Jay, youd think the two of them were running out of clothes to wear for these road trips or something.
    “Hey Mario, you got some pants I can wear to the game?” – Wade
    “Ummm, I got these white ones but I don’t have a shirt for you.” – Mario
    “Aight, cool cool. I got a Nike compression shirt I can wear.” – Wade
    “Well alright… you do that…” – Mario

    Anybody know if Charles Barkley got a daughter. If she could talk sh!t like her father. Oh my. What a turn on! She could get the keys to the Sport Master mobile any day of the week.

    Dam beib news got me day dreaming and reminiscing…

  • silky

    dunno if it qualifies as a sport but…. yoga chicks take the god damn cake. my girl has taken me a few times and it’s wicked. surrounded by 8+’s that are doing all kinds of crazy flexible and provacative poses in sports bras and booty shorts. it’s hedonistic. wish I woulda done it while I was still playing ball(and single). perfect athletic compliment to ball and it’s like a smorgasbord of fine girls

    But my type ain’t exactly athletic. The disappointed words, “Aw man, she lost a bunch of weight” have been spoken in my house by me about more than a couple celebrities.

  • Sporty-j

    Even as a HEAT fan I have to admit that Wade and Lebron be on some high school gay sh!t. It seem like they call each other and try to match like as if there dating. I still crack up everytime I see Bosh running down the court but a I wouldn’t trade that SOB for any big man in league. He matches is perfectly and has ridiculous range on his shot. That Nicca also has a prettier chick than Lebron. He just seems like a goody to shoe like Rose…

    Shout out to the Indiana Pacers. Legit biggest bitches in the league. You won in Chicago. U celebrated. Rose called you out. PROMISED that the next game was gonna be all revenge…and you bitches don’t even show up? Weak…

    Shout out pt.2 – The Philly Sixers. Ho w can you allow people to keep thinkin that y’all ain’t shit without Spencer Hawes? Yet, here we are.
    12-2 with Hawes
    9-14 without Hawes
    It was funny at first, now it’s just stupid. Why you even trade away Speights?

    Shout out pt3 – Dear LA Clippers n Mr Stern, maybe just call the Hornets to give the TWolves their ever-losin value-draft pick back cuz they been ownin the Clips. Minny is bangin on the playoff door. Clippers are dyin without a 2guard (Wilson Chandler?)

    Next time somebody tries to tell you the Eastern Conference is deeper or as deep as the West, remind them that it hasn’t been since Mike was in Chicago…

  • http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/psychotic Chicagorilla

    @Kdizzle

    I will agree that overall the Eastern Conference is not as good as the West. But the Western conference is only slightly better than the East. It’s not like in years past where the West was by far more dominant. It’s about as close to even as the NBA gets because it goes in waves. every 8-10yrs or so the power switches conferences.

    But as far as contenders go It’s pretty much even. Maybe the West has one more.

  • http://www.dimemag.com Austin Burton

    Conference strength doesn’t really matter in the long run, does it? During those years when the West was supposed to be SO dominant — presumably post-Jordan/Pippen up until last season, so 1999-2010 — you still had the Pistons, Heat and Celtics win championships. And it’s not like the West was cranking out a bunch of title-winners. The only West teams that won chips were L.A. and San Antonio.

  • http://www.zwani.com/graphics/funny_pictures/images/88funny-pictures128.jpg JAY

    Uh Sporty-j… maybe you, but not me. Hopefully you just trying to be funny, bcuz I like to convince myself that no self-respecting man would ask “how high?” when another man tells them to jump. And for kitty? I do just fine by myself. Those chicks they mess wit likely expect something in return…. girls I know KNOW I don’t got money like that… Win-win!

    I don’t need to be hanging around those dudes anyway. They’ll come out the closet and people will be looking at me sideways, like his boys looked at Arsenio Hall after Magic announced his retirement. I don’t need that static.
    And I don’t really want to mess with chicks who dress like Wade, and share purses with Lebron.

  • K Dizzle

    @ AB
    Lol I forgot about that skit.
    Can’t believe we STILL waitin on Detox

    @ Chi-rilla
    Dudes who know hoops would know that. I was talkin about the kids who were losin they minds cuz Amare, Melo, DWill n Boozer moved east so it was like the West wasn’t still the deeper conference.
    I agree contender wise, it’s pretty much even up. After that, it’s all west cuz only one year this past decade has the east had all their playoff teams above .500
    In the west, that’s mandatory.

  • Sporty-j

    @k-bit#%zle

    Nicca plz! U know darn well the East Coast now runs the league. Don’t let let a meaning less allstar game cloud your judgement. Heat, Knicks, Nets once they get Howard. CP3 wanted to be Knick before David Stern tried to play GOD which made the Clips relivant. There now another team in a Big Market that will be racking in money for the NBA and all these Cry baby Owners lead by Dan Gilbit$&. Chicago could be even more of a serious team if Rose ever allowed another Superstar to share the spot-light with him. But he’s getting paid anyhow so y would he give PHUCK. In a serious allstar game Rose would give West-Brick buckets. Lebron would snap Durant in half. CP3 has always been Deron Williams bit#@ head to head. Howard would just take a step back, soldier boy with it, and SUPERMAN that Ho% Andrew Bybit%#. PHUCK a KIA, Bosh would jump over Blake Griffin. And Wade? He would just break Kobes nose lol. I know you West Coast cats have your heads held high in the past week. Don’t let that fake win against my Heat with us bringing our D game, without our most important piece(Bosh-dizzle), with the REFS doing everything in there power to help L.A., and with everybody for L.A. playing completely out of there minds have you West Coast punks on here thinking you could PHUCK with the East coast or that L.A. might meet my Heat in June. It would take a miracle of injuries to every team out West for the Lakers to make it that far. You have a better chance at hitting the lotto kid…

    I don’t care if the girl is 5’10” and 110 or 4’10” and 210 – if I wanna hit it I am gonna hit it.

    @ Chi-rilla & AB: Post 57 is the ‘kids’ I was talkin bout.
    You know, the “if Howard goes to the Nets” n “if CP3 had gone to New York”(even tho they signed Chandler so the Knicks had no chance to get him) then he proceeds to discuss players in an all-star game….HUH?

    For the sake of argument, the East has 8 of their 15 teams under .500
    The West has 5 of their 15 teams under .500
    And since Mike left Chicago, 10 of 13 chips went to the West.
    Like I said, the contenders are even this season, but teams like Phoenix, Golden State, Utah n Portland would be playoff teams out east.

    @ Spotty Spice – Today’s word is: Ritalin…

    @AB and Chi

    The West was superior during that time. Even though the Pistons, Celtics, and Heat won championships… someone has got to represent the conference. In any of those years, pick 10 teams that had a shot at winning the title. Of those 10, 3 might be from the eastern conference. You could rarely say so&so has a good chance to beat whoever comes out of the West. On the flipside, you have the West beating each other up and it just so happened that the Lakers and Spurs made up the majority of the finals appearances. But Dallas was always lurking. Houston if healthy. Pheonix was on the cusp. Utah was always a tough out. Denver when healthy was a tough out. You have 7 legit playoff teams. Back in the East, you always had 4 teams that simply looked like they didn’t belong. Several years with a team(s) that had losing records making the playoffs.

    I didn’t say I or that I would jump on 1 leg or anything crazy. But the tree of Piranhas those guys get to choose from is diff from my tree or your tree. Those guys trees are effortless from Jay-z to Lol Wayne. Plus Wade is voted best dress in Sports period. Dude models. What you want them niccas to come out G-Q every time or in a business Suit everytime. Those guys are trying to touch a Wider audience bigger than just the America Audience or that your mind can think of. There business Men also. I would hang in there entourage and rock a purse if that’s what gets me to knock down Rhianna, Beyonce, and etc. Not the hood rats your thinking of. That’s to Easy and I don’t want those dirty bit$# all the time. I want Buffie the Body and Serena Williams on my Trophy mantle…

    By the way, last night I could’ve sworn I saw Chris Paul miss a game-tying free throw with 2 seconds left, then miss everything on a potential game-winning three at the buzzer. I mean, CP3 played great before that and helped bring L.A. back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but he didn’t get it done in the end.

    Yet this morning I’m not reading a bunch of columns about how CP3 will never be Isiah Thomas, how he stinks in the clutch, and how he showed his true colors by turning his back on New Orleans. What’s up with that?

  • http://www.dimemag.com Austin Burton

    @F&F — I’m not arguing that the East was better, just saying it doesn’t really matter all that much because the East represented themselves well with a few championship teams during that era. It wasn’t like that stretch in the NFL where the NFC won 13 Super Bowls in a row.

    @Sporty-J — You leave Serena out of this…

  • Sporty-j

    The West use to be bad and tough. Everybody knows that! The West Coast is slowly becoming extinct and David Stern is trying his best to Keep the relivant and stopping the flood gate of players going out East. It’s a powershift happening son. You are a WITNESS…

  • Sporty-j

    Ok you can have Serena AB. Im just trying to get these young to understand that type of Alley-oops of girls that Wade and Lebron throw around to each is nothing compared to what any of use could throw to each combined. We would take there ugliest chicks and be the happiest man in the world unless your dad is named Micheal Jordan or somebody famous. Just trying to educate these guys who are fascinated with the way Lebron or Wade dress instead of basketball or females. K-Dizzle has yet to name a female he likes??? Lakegirl84???

    i think the tone of discussion should have been set in smack’s title if we were gonna talk about chris paul. no one cares about kendrick perkins. but chris paul missed a free throw, agianst a team guys feel is decent competition compared to them. and paul isn’t on a transcendent level like lebron. now if lebron and his heat had missed a free throw against the wolves, then it’d be more of a story cuz the heat shouldn’t be in that position against a team like minny. but when i think about it, lebron probably wouldn’t find himself at the line nowadays in that situation cuz he’d be too busy setting up the “right shot” for haslem.

  • K Dizzle

    After readin all the trash Spotty postin today(U lost in the finals remember?), I’m actually missin beibs lol

    @ Austin – you completely lost me on the CP3 n Lebron comparison.
    You didn’t read about CP3 this morning because
    A) He’s in his 7th season n Isiah didn’t get a chip til his 8th season so that squashes that
    B) Isiah never lost Joe Dumars(Chauncey Billups) when he was tryin to get his chips
    C) The Bad Boys were better than ANY squad CP’s ever played on
    D) CP3 never won the MVP back to back
    E) CP3 never won 120+ games in back to back seasons
    F) CP3 never left New Orleans. He was traded…TWICE
    G) CP3’s not from Louisiana
    H) CP3 didn’t go on tv to rip New Orleans when he left. Actually thanked them for everything
    I) CP3 is usually clutch in those situation. The Wolves fans GASPED in shock wheen he missed that free throw.

    I can keep goin but hopefully you just wanna squash the weak comparisons to LBJ. He’s tryin to get past the ‘Decision’, you should try too..

  • sh!tfaced

    if dwight gets traded or leaves for the west and it tilts right back…

    pussy is pussy, athletic, yoga or pole dancing, as long as you get some happy time, its all good. but no way am i gonna be more dressed up than the girl. that’s just boyband/faggot territory. and the bag? ugh. and the make-up? shit. its the reason why they’re doing a Zoolander sequel…

    @AB

    To add to KDizzle’s list

    CP3 has already prevailed in several “clutch” situations this season. That’s not even counting how clutch he’s been in his career.

  • Sporty-j

    lol at Dizzle. You guys was suppose to meet us in the Finals, lost your 1st Finals the Gasoft experiment, and was the only team to not win at least 1 playoff game last. Did you forget? Your still the 2nd best team in L.A.
