If basketball is the only thing under the tree I'm gonna go light a menorah.

I never forgave hockey for the last strike so now I boycott hockey and love basketball. It's like we're bizarro/alternate dimension brothers. I call dibs on the goatee.

KG didn't seem interested in giving RayRay a high five as he entered the game.

Was Garnett ignoring Allen pregame or did that just happen? That's cold Kevin he was your teammate fora long time.

I'm not sure which is more gorgeous...Ray Allen's jump shot or Norris Cole's high top fade

Fair enough. My beef is that a friend of mine (played 2 guard for Carolina) was a projected 1st round pick who didn't get drafted. He ended up playing for 13 years in Europe and is now rich as shiat and retired, so its not a horrible ending. But screw the NBA. I can easily see why people are giving the NHL the bird, and rightfully so.

Nice little first quarter we had there. Wade is getting the ball slapped away every damn possession though.

Like all things with KG it is gamesmanship.

Listen to the Simmons podcast with Scal. He gives good perspective on KG. I know a lot of people hate KG but I have always loved him. The guy's whole life is basketball and as a fan I love it.

If Jordan owned his own team, iron_city_ap's friend would have been drafted, no question. I'd also like to see NBATV run Jordan's worst games so we don't continue to act as though he was dropping 50+ in every game.

Norris Cole's haircut is worth 6 points/game.

I've met a couple guys that played ball in Europe and they could go on for days about European women... I wish I was a little bit taller.

I forgot how good Anderson Varejao is. I also forgot how difficult it is to watch two games at once.
 
2012-10-30 08:43:12 PM  
Yeah, JET, you don't get to just run into people and lateral to your teammate for free dunks.

Why is in the NBA's fault some kid didn't get drafted?

I've always loved KG for his intensity. Don't like the teams he's played for but always enjoy watching him play.

He is my least favorite player in the NBA. Such a bonehead. I know the upside but he is so frustrating to watch.

I like Rashard Lewis when he gives a crap. Should be a good pickup now that he doesn't have a spineless "leader" like Howard.
 
2012-10-30 08:54:27 PM  
Watching this basketball game reminds me of how much of a joke basketball is. I'll give you an example. On one play, the player was able to shoot the ball over the outstretched hands of his defender. He was able to make this play because he was taller than his opponent. Absolutely disgusting. How can you watch this garbage?
 
2012-10-30 08:55:23 PM  
Ray Allen seemed to want to make a point housing Terry there. Wade has NO ups anymore - he's barely clearing rim now.
 
2012-10-30 08:55:32 PM  
And did you see that? Rajon Rondo only scored points on that possession because he was athletic. This is a joke. Back to hockey for me.
 
2012-10-30 08:56:56 PM  
The fact that Jay-Z is involved with NBA 2K makes me LESS likely to buy the game.

One time I saw a guy score cause he was faster than everyone else. Truly an abomination.

I'm not going to listen to Simmons, but that's still no excuse for KG being a blatant asshole. Like I've said, anyone more concerned with getting a 3-second call on an injured player on the floor than the injured player on the floor is an asshole.

Anyways, I'm very interested to see what some of these young teams in the West can do if (ever) they're healthy. The Wolves and Warriors could be very, very interesting.
 
2012-10-30 09:01:10 PM  
Wow, the Cavs bench is bad.
 
2012-10-30 09:02:08 PM  
Alley oop with a reverse dunk. Fark these jerks can ball.
 
2012-10-30 09:02:11 PM  
Damn, Ray Allen is ready to ball.
 
2012-10-30 09:02:42 PM  
I think Ray is up for this game.
 
2012-10-30 09:03:13 PM  
Bah late for opening night, at least I still got the second half of this game.

Okay. There are lots of stories about KG being anything but asshole. He has been a dick at times in his career but so have most.

It's like you people don't even read headlines. :-\

Also, last year's opening day was Christmas. That was the dumb subtle joke in the headline.

Rondo with two behind the back dribbles...one turns into a steal, the other a brick. Real productive.

Goofs Rondo gets stuffed and thrown to the ground when he tries to dunk. Gallant LeBron dunks through three guys who stay the hell out of his way.

You're right I don't read headlines because half of them don't make sense or reference some meme I don't care about. Credit for factual info this time, I guess.
