Birdman's not crazy enough to be compared to Rodman. Never seen him kick a camera guy yet.
 
2013-05-28 09:28:30 PM  
Well, there goes Birdman. That was quick.

LeBron, it would be nice if you started getting back into "F*ck you" mode instead of "Melo mode".

Hearing the great Marv Albert refer to Chris Anderson as "The Birdman" encapsulates everything I love about the NBA.

Let Stephenson go to the basket and put it up. If you can't feed Hibbert at least entertain us.

Miami still finishes quarters way better than the Pacers.

They should keep feeding him. Can't believe he only has 11. No one on Miami could stop him.

Yeah, he lost all his minutes to Andersen because Andersen at least occasionally produces something on offense. But after a stop, that's good enough to make me like him and forget his suckiness.

People remember the Rodman craziness, but he was a total monster on the boards. He worked hard at it, too.

I really like LBJ going over after the quarter to tell his teammates "thanks - we in this"

LeBron James being guarded by Sam Young is the easiest two points in basketball.
 
2013-05-28 09:43:08 PM  
Well, I think Miami's definitely happy to have gotten out of that first half down 1. Still not sure how that happened.

Too bad for most of the half he was content to just shoot fadeaways.

Comparing Birdman and rodman really is unfair. Birdman hustles some, but he does not have the drive to succeed that Rodman had. A 6-8 guy averaging 15 rebounds a game was just sick. He did all the dirty work, going down on the floor for loose balls, changing people's shots, doing everything he could so that Jordan and Pippen (and earlier, Thomas) could concentrate on scoring. There are a number of reasons that Rodman is in the HOF - one of the all-time great defenders.

Damn, Chuck, that is a bad suit.

my lip balm addiction: Comparing Birdman and rodman really is unfair.


It's not unfair. Birdman is just a really poor man's Rodman. Not quite as crazy, not quite as good as anything, ultimately. But still in the mold of him. Kinda like how photocopies deteriorate in quality over time.
 
2013-05-28 09:50:54 PM  
I kinda feel sorry for Indiana featuring that 2012 WNBA champions banner so prominently. Now I kinda want them to win a title so they can have a less embarrassing backdrop.

If Rodman did more coke maybe.

I never saw anyone answer the question the other night in the Spurs thread. If Timmy wins this year, he will have won titles in 3 different decades (90's, 00's, and 10's). Has any other top flight player accomplished this feat? I know Russell and Jordan have more titles, but theirs were clustered into long stretches.

Is Timmy on the cusp of an unprecedented feat by a top flight guy?

I_C_Weener: If Rodman did more coke maybe.


Who's to say he didn't? He WAS around in the '80s and early '90s.

/why does everyone assume Birdman did coke? I always was under the impression it was LSD for some reason, but I couldn't find anything online that said what it actually was

That was my question/finding. At best, the thread figured some old school Yankees and Patrick Roy. No NBA or NFL guys that anyone could think of.

Probably. Kind of a difficult situation to imagine happening too often, since you basically have to come into the league late in a decade to a team that's already good and was kinda tanking the previous season in order to get you.

Thanks MOPA - I couldn't remember who asked it, but it was a good question and needed to be asked again. The Big Fundamental certainly deserves another title - will he get it? No idea at this point but their dismantling of Memphis was impressive.

Not a top flight guy, but literally the only guy in NBA history to have done so: John Salley. ('89 Pistons, couple of Bulls teams, 2000 Lakers)
 
2013-05-28 09:59:48 PM  
I guess it's possible there are others; the list only goes down to guys with four titles. Someone could have won three that magically worked out...but I doubt it.

I'd count Salley as a decent name for it. His wiki says he was also the first guy to win it with three different teams. Interesting to see if Duncan joins him.

Kareem did not have titles across three decades, but he had a longer gap, assuming this will be the Spurs' last title if they win it. 1971 (w/ Bucks), 1988 (w/Lakers).

Spider Salley was a decent player and it doesn't surprise me that he got the 3 decade accomplishment. But if Timy does it all with one team, and as one of the top 3 guys every time (if not #1) for his team, I feel that Timmy's would be the superior accomplishment.

/not that he needs anything else to be a 1st ballot HOFer
