IAmRight: SO YOU'RE ASKING FOR AN EXAMPLE OF AN NBA PLAYER STAYING ON THE COURT THROUGH A POSSESSION WHERE HE WAS INJURED? HOW ABOUT EVERY F*CKING TIME A PLAYER IS INJURED, you can't call timeout until you have the ball in basketball either, f*ckstain.


Once again, no...I'm not asking for that. Nor did I ever say that. You don't even know what you're arguing or who you're arguing against anymore.
 
2012-06-25 04:55:26 PM  

IAmRight: You're right, facing shots with no equipment is clearly weaker than facing shots with padding all over your body.


No, it's just stupid. You're not even arguing regulation sports. You're talking about some grabass in your front yard. I'm not going to call you strong just because you pull a Happy Gilmore and stand in front of a baseball machine, although that does prove my point about hockey players being tougher but then again, facing an object that comes at you 90mph is what hockey players have to deal with.

You, you're just a simpleton.

We agree that they run and sprint, and collide and fight; they fall and flop and recover and trade positions, but hockey demands more for longer than basketball.

Okay, you're still not understanding the argument. I've made it pretty damn clearly that this is not the argument at least a dozen times in this thread.

Anyone got a line on 2 tickets to the Leafs opener against the Habs? I'll be in Toronto that weekend and don't want to resort to giving an old fashioned to a guy at the bus station to get tickets to the game.

IAmRight: boozehat: So your hockey experience can be summed up by you standing in the street with sneakers on, holidng a baseball glove?

Hey boozehat, how many ice rinks were there in southern California two decades ago?

/not many


First off, I grew up playing in NorCal... Belmont Iceland to be exact. Prior to the Sharks coming to San Jose, there were less than 10 teams we would play, ranging from Fresno to Santa Rosa.

In SoCal during that time, there were over 20 teams in LA and Orange counties. An area that spans, what, 100 miles? 150 miles tops?

The existance Kings in SoCal had drivin hockey down here a lot.

BTW, do you have a point at all? Roller-boy

Yeah, I'm just gonna keep arguing against your stupidity. You stated you played with that shiat because you didn't have roller blades and now, you're going on about not having ice rinks. You fail at so many farking sports. Hell you fail at life. I played both roller hockey and ice hockey. Ice hockey requires better skating skills therefore, ice hockey players are tougher than roller blade players. And roller hockey players are still tougher than basketball players. Come on moron. Just admit that you're wrong and we can get back to arguing the merits of flopping or the contention that Lebron is the best, something you clearly have more passion about and at least a modicum of sense.

FreakinB: In basketball, a cramped leg hobbles a player *way* more than a broken finger. One might affect your shot a bit, the other hinders pretty much everything you do. And even if it's best resolved through movement and blood flow, I'd argue that the time for getting that movement and blood flow is *not* on the court during the final stages of a close Finals game.


Okay, I'll concede that a leg injury is worse than a hand injury. However, above I posted a story about a player that continued playing and sacrificed himself to aid his team. Now we can argue if this was good or bad for the team, but it proves my point that hockey players are tougher than basketball. Hockey player with leg injury still contributed to help his team in the playoffs, basketball player with leg injury sat out and contributed nothing to help his team (with his injury, lest someone thinks I'm not saying Lebron helped his team) in the playoffs.

Point: Hockey players are tougher than basketball players.

Hockey players also understand and go through more cramps than most due to the anaerobic nature of the exercise. Football lineman would be another good example. mostly preventable by drinking enough water and eating enough bananas.

Dude, the farking argument is are hockey players tougher than basketball players. You said no. I say yes. So go ahead, take a timeout and argue how basketball players are even as tough (which isn't original argument).

IAmRight: js34603: /Hockey players obviously tougher than basketball players

I dunno about that - it's not like you can say "oh, they wouldn't play through getting hit with a puck"...if a basketball player gets hit with a puck in the middle of a game, there's something seriously wrong. There's a lot of physicality in basketball.


Here, your direct quote. This is the farking argument. So argue it or admit you're wrong. It's that farking simple. I'm not the guy from Memento, so stop with this Jedi shiat about that isn't the argument.

We can start over if that's easier for your Candyland. I'll go first. Hockey players are obviously tougher than basketball players. Your move.

What I don't understand is why you're still trying to have this "who's tougher?" argument with me when I already said that I thought it was meaningless. I'm honestly not at all interested. I'll keep watching both the Islanders and the Knicks without a thought regarding what would happen if Tavares got cramps or if Melo got hit in the face, thankyouverymuch.

It must be difficult to type around your tongue, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on this farking derp-nado.

Raised by a single parent, I was still able to play organized youth hockey for 10 years. It actually doesn't cost much, especially buying second hand, seasonal registration was anywhere from $350-550, more expensive as I got older. Everything but skates is easy to get second hand, even now I got a full set of -new- gear for my adult league for about $320, not including skates (about another $220). Between what my half-brother has to pay out now for his basketball, including off-season tournaments that require fees, travel and hotel, and other equipment such as shoes (which can cost as much as a basic set of skates for him...size 14 feet), hockey was actually cheaper...by like half.

The lack of equipment isn't relevant anyway. What is relevant is that what he's describing isn't organized ice hockey, it's farkin casual street hockey/roller hockey and he's using it as a platform to show how his "toughness" is on par with NHL players.

Okay, you don't care. You think they are different. You didn't argue that they weren't. The article stated that hockey players dissed Lebron for his injury by stating that they would have done something different. Do you disagree? Do you think they would clutch their leg on the sidelines or would they attempt to get back out there without acting as if they are crippled? If this isn't what you want to discuss, don't reference me in the post because I am arguing that very point.

If you want to say that it is unfair to state they are tougher because of the difference in the demand of the sport then say that and I won't argue at all. IAmRight decided to argue it, and I decided to argue against his argument. That fair?

The coach shouldn't let a player who's cramping up back out, regardless of the sport. If you were cramping 2 minutes ago, you're going to cramp the next strong move you try to make. If you can't accelerate, how can you play defense? LeBron did go back in, because I guess it's hard for the coach to tell a superstar to sit in the 4th quarter of a finals game, but unless your teammates are so bad that you with no burst are better than them at 100% you should stay on the bench. The various other injuries people are talking about are a red herring - getting punched in the head is painful, but it doesn't affect your play if you don't want it to. If guys are going back out with injuries that affect their mobility just to prove toughness that's dumb on the part of the coaches.

New Age Redneck: Are we using Hemingway's definition of sport and thus athlete in this holy contrived discussion?

I'm using the term "physically-gifted" on the basis of what skills and properties other athletes do not have and are physically unable to obtain.

Huh? So he's more "physically gifted" than Ueli. So how come we don't see your basket ball dude soloing the Eiger? Hell, if he is so gifted maybe he can shave some minutes off the time? How about the time he won the marathon? Yeah....

Agreed. When I was playing high school football, a player complained about his knee hurting and the coach told him "You're walking, ain't you?" The player, a lineman, kept playing and then went down even harder. The next day we found out that he tore his MCL and would be out for the season. The coach was wrong, and the player should have spoken up. Players should be responsible enough to say they cannot play.

CSB time. I played soccer and had an illness known as Sever's disease (something that affected my heels making them seem as if I was walking on glass), I told the coach I couldn't run and got subbed. The coach didn't like it because I was one of the starting fullbacks, but he accepted that running me further would worsen my ability and that affect the team. CSB out!

Have their been players on my team that have played through injury? Yes. Do I think that's a good idea? No.

CSB time again, I played on a team with a guy that ended up setting records at UNLV and then went on to play for the Carolina Panthers and then the Jacksonville Jaguars. During a high school game, he played with a 100+ temperature, he threw up on the field repeatedly. Was he tougher than me? Dear god yes! Do I think the coach should have allowed that? No, but then this guy made the pros and I couldn't even get a look from colleges. We were both starters and we each played both ways, offense and defense. CSB done.

I was and am arguing against the idea that certain sports players are tougher against IAmRight's idea that they aren't.

Lulz dude that homo couldn't even afford real gear. That's why ghetto trash all play basketball. Their dads can't buy them the sweet gear you need to play a real sport. Basketball = just a ball. Soccer = just a ball.

Just a ball = pussy.

Hockey and Lax = real gear to protect you in a real sport.

I wouldn't even waste my time on such a pencil-necked geek that probably gets most of his ice time from NHL 95 - the one without fighting - the one for little baby girls! Shiat yeah!

/hockey in winter
//lax in summer
///crushing it all year long

It must be difficult to type around your tongue, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on this farking derp-nado.

Raised by a single parent, I was still able to play organized youth hockey for 10 years. It actually doesn't cost much, especially buying second hand, seasonal registration was anywhere from $350-550, more expensive as I got older. Everything but skates is easy to get second hand, even now I got a full set of -new- gear for my adult league for about $320, not including skates (about another $220). Betw ...


I'm just glad we can agree that hockey players are tougher than basketball players. It's important that everyone agrees this is true. Shiat yeah!

Wow, this man posts and no pictures of LeBron and Wade fake coughing? You have disappointed me fark (not sure if there are comments on it though).

The leg cramp thing though was the final straw to show that LBJ was winning this year and was going to make the leap. In the past, Miami would have tanked that game and OKC would be 2-2. It would be his anti-thesis to the Jordan flu game. OKC rides the momentum to take game 5 as people wonder if James is fit, then takes 1 of 2 at home. Instead, somehow everyone else steps up and he takes them the rest of the way.

Holy hell. At this rate, this thread will be longer than the NBA Finals game 6 thread.

Cookbook's Anarchist: The article stated that hockey players dissed Lebron for his injury by stating that they would have done something different. Do you disagree? Do you think they would clutch their leg on the sidelines or would they attempt to get back out there without acting as if they are crippled?


I can agree with everything you said except for this. I don't think LeBron was faking that injury, and it isn't smart to play with cramps (especially in basketball). The players just sound like a bunch of scrubs that are banking on the "toughness" of hockey to insult a superior athlete in a more popular sport. LeBron did try to go back out there actually and it is asinine to say that he wasn't trying to play important minutes in the Finals. I also think LeBron is big enough to play the "tough" sports and he could probably kick of some of those hockey players asses.

he tried a little. Even scored a couple baskets. It just looked like he was going to be a horrible liability on defense, which is why I'm guessing he took himself out.

Basketball players are wimps. I mean come on when was the last time you heard
of a basketball player playing 3? days after having surgery on one of his testicles. (Lidstrom)

I will agree that Lebron did try this season and it showed, as Miami won the championship, fair and square. He is an incredible athlete and a phenomenal basketball player, despite my feelings regarding "The Decision" and his behavior in regards to Cleveland in general, which I admit pollute my opinion of him.

But I believe in previous seasons, even with Miami last year, that he overplayed his injuries, cramps, strains, etc. in order to prevent negative attention for his team's failure.

I think the hockey players are conflating,both this year's behavior (cramps) as well as previous seasons (his shoulder injury), the two. I will never deny his talent and ability. But in previous years, he has acted as if his injuries were so crippling as to prevent his team from going forward and thus, I do believe he seeks the attention and wants his own Jordan Flu Game moment because Lebron has shown that he wants the media attention.

Could he have been tougher and more resilient in the past? Yes. But as of now, he contributed to a championship in which he was the star. I will still dislike him for his past behavior, but once again, I won't deny this year's performance (and his performance individually) even at the cost of my Lakers. :

Stupid lazy Lakers! (but I digress).

He was not faking the injury, but I do believe he faked the intensity of the pain (after all, it is just a leg cramp not a torn ACL or sprained knee or torn meniscus) in order to drive the narrative that he is the best despite pain. Once again, it seems that he is more a victim of the current media (don't get me started on the gobbling that van Gundy does), and so he plays it as they expect. This is the same way I feel about flopping. I don't like that anyone uses it, even my own team.

Once again, I will say that overall hockey players act in a tougher manner than basketball players; however, Lebron has earned his MVP and I don't personally think he is weak, but he plays a great narrative because that is what the media wants and he knows how to play that game. And I hate it, but I won't stop watching basketball.

Pretty much every farking story in the sports tab:

Anybody who thinks these tweets aren't funny because [insert your douchebag sport here] is really tough, come on, lighten up, Francis. The Heat pay Lebron a lot of money for him to deliver, but on that night he was carryout. That's funny and he won't love you for white knighting for him.

boozehat: LucklessWonder: Different Sports require different skill sets and different training and conditioning. Toughness is an arbitrary standard.

Right. Basketball for example, you need skills like, lifting a 250+lb player off the court when he gets a little cramp?:

I love the look on the face of the guy holding LeBJ's thigh....like "I'm inches away from LeBron's crotch right now....I'm in my happy place...."

Patterson: Basketball is filled with divas trying to milk a sprained knee to seem like they're "toughing it out" for the cameras a-la Paul Pierce (one of the most embarrassing moments of sissydom in sports history).


I see your Paul Pierce and flop a Dwyane Wade.

Ugh, lost part of my post, should've been "I'm inches away from LeBron's crotch...I'm not here right now...I'm in my happy place..."
