And Mark Cuban is vindicated. Cuban was correct that he would physically break down and couldn't handle a NBA schedule

God I wish someone would hip check that douche into the scorers table.

Worst of all, he has to retire as a Laker.

Maybe the Suns will hire him back for a night to see if he can go Run And Gun Suns before his whole body collapses.

Hi Steve,

How's karma treating you these days? Bet you're second guessing yourself right about now. Maybe not signing with the Raptors and abandoning Team Canada Basketball was not so smart after all. Well, what goes around comes around, eh?  Who wants to be a national hero anyways? That might take integrity.

Sincerely,
The Nation of Toronto.

Karma? He seemed to do pretty well in Phoenix. He's also the oldest dude in the NBA. This isn't karma. It's normal.

Karma takes longer in Canada. It's, like, really cold up there. Everything not related to hockey slows down.

My only regret in all the years of watching the NBA is that I never got see Robert Horry suffer a career-ending injury. Still, I guess he wasn't as bad as Bruce Bowen - that douche was the epitome of everything wrong with the league.

If we were to re-rank the greatest players of all time, I wonder how high he'd be on that list. Great in his prime and has two MVPs, but didn't play any defense and didn't get a team to the Finals.

No sense of him playing in pain if he will still get paid. The Lakers aren't going anywhere this year anyways.

It doesn't take a Suns fan to point out that Bruce Bowen was one of the biggest pieces of shiat in the NBA for basically his whole career.

Hmm. 18 years in the league. 135 million dollars in salary earnings. 2 MVPs. Not having to play for the Raptors. And a sore back at age 40. Damn, karma is a biatch.

/Also, he was born in South Africa.

Heh, How can you hate Bruce Bowen, when he has given you such a a wonderful obsession? If it wasn't for the Spurs you wouldn't have anyone to root against.

I do feel for you though the lack of having a team to root against would drive me crazy, that has always made being a fair weather or band wagon fan so damn unappealing to me personally.

Well, I'll continue to root for your team to be relocated to the bottom of the ocean. Then I guess you'd have to relocate there with them.

You've obviously never encountered Upper Canada Atmospheric Static Discharge.

2013-11-19 08:39:11 PM
As somebody who also has nerve damage/back pain on a daily basis, I can't imagine what an 82-game NBA schedule would do to you.  Sometimes, your body gives out before your desire does.  It's just the way it goes.  If this is his last hurrah, I had fun watching.

//yeah, Horry was a dirty bastard

Really though, even at his prime, I'm not sure Nash was ever considered an top-tier all-time great.
At his peak popularity people had him as maybe the 7th or 8th best PG ever. Magic, Oscar, Isaiah, Stockton, Cousy, Kidd ahead for sure. Frazier and Payton maybe. And then today, you have to say Paul's eclipsed him... Hell, maybe even Deron Williams.
/ Prime Nash is an all-fun great, though.

If there was a decent enough job for me I would relocate to the bottom of the Ocean. Sea Quest was pretty bad-ass.

Nothing wrong with being a fan when are geographically located close to a team. I am a pretty big Spurs and Pistons fans through the good times and bad.

I guess it just rubs me the wrong way when people root for the frontrunner just because they are the frontrunner. I appreciate wanting to see the game played well at a high level, and you have manufactured your own heels in the NBA universe to root against, which is all good. Still fark the Heat.

Chris Paul has to win SOMETHING first.  Granted, he's been on some bad teams and played well in the postseason, and I'm not even a big postseason = everything guy, but he's 2-5 in playoff series.  That's Carmelo bad.
