    kobe who’s team won the game though…

  2. sloan Says:

    valid point. even as i wrote that, the lakers were winning. it helps when radmano is going completely off from three point land.

  3. sloan Says:

    and when the nuggets get zero offensive production from camby/kmart/nene (in nene’s defense, he didn’t play in the game due to injury.)

  4. Pat Says:

    Does camby ever provide offense besides putback dunks and layups?

    Is Kmart on the Steve Francis/Chris Webber/Penny Hardaway/Grant Hill shell of their formerl self award watch list? I haven’t seen them play this season but it seems he isn’t making as big of impact as the last real PF should make. I could be completely wrong about this because once again i haven’t been watching the nugs besides highlights which are always melo and ivo.

    Despite last nights outburst, where does iverson fit now in the league in terms of value as a SG? I think he has dropped significantly as his #’s and production drop and his tiny little body continues to get banged up. It sucks watching players get old. It used to be that they were just old, but now i remember watching them in college. I absolutely LOVED collge bball when iverson was at georgetown.

    Sucks being old, my hairline is receding extremely rapidly. I’d like to go back to about 6th grade so i could just keep reliving these 10 years. Back to when matt was the most imposing athletic force in traverse city and zach was some crazy kid on my soccer team and reese was an enigma and not just a funny drunk.

    Not sure where i’m going with this, my dog woke me up after a very short 5 hour sleep while i was dreaming about who was going to be michigan’s next coach. Literally not a lie, i think they were going to name brady hoke the coach and i was getting really mad…like it was one of those really frustrating dreams where you wake up wanting to break something.

    i was the crazy kid that led the team in assists every year, i was also the guy that would pick fights with aaraon heindel on the field so as to throw him off his game. i dont think my teams ever lost to an aaron heindle soccer team. the only yellow cards i ever got was when we played his team. i dont think hes liked me since those days..even when we were on the same team!! i was sick.

    also ivo is on my team and he currently averages 25 3 7 2. is that so bad? comparitively michael redd gets 23 6 3 1 and kobe gets 27 6 5 2.

  6. Pat Says:

    Its not so bad, its just not as good.

  7. sloan Says:

    pat, you’re completely, 100% wrong about the “iverson decline” that everyone keeps saying is going to happen (and that you say has already happened.)

    he’s still playing the same minutes, he’s still getting two steals a night and seven dimes a night, he’s actually scoring a higher percentage of his shots. he’s just not getting the same number of shots. and that’s only because he’s got another 25 point scorer on his squad.

  8. sloan Says:

    the final four of the big east that year (with ivo’s gtown, john wallace’s syracuse, ray allen’s uconn, and kittles’ villanova) was one of those times (bad boys, fab five, mj) when i fell in love with basketball. what a great time.

  9. sloan Says:

    i just checked—-the highest scorers ivo ever had were cwebb and stackhouse (ivo’s rookie year), both averaging 20. cwebb obviously did different things than melo does, and when ivo and stack were together ivo was so young that he was averaging a mere 23.

  10. Pat Says:

    I guess to me, his decline may not be in numbers or scoring or anything like that, but he just doesn’t seem to be able to dominate and win games like he used to. Denver is a borderline playoff time with iverson, melo, camby, nene, JR (rider) smith and whoever else that is good on that team. My point being, the people around iverson are now better than he’s ever had in his career and he simply can’t carry them to as many wins. Granted, the rest of the teams in the west are much better than when he led the 76ers to the finals out of the east. I just think he’s no longer a dominant player and i don’t think he’ll ever be a winner of a championship.

    maybe i’m just a hopeless ivo-backer, but–again–i disagree.

    last they won 47 games. they’re roughly at that pace again this year, maybe a little better. they lost to san antonio in five last year, but that’s the worst possible matchup for them (and for most teams.) and they didn’t have kmart.

    ivo has slowed down a quarter-step, and they’re calling the carry a lot more than in previous years, but he also doesn’t have to carry an entire team on his shoulders anymore. melo is—after kobe and who else?—one of the best pure scorers in the league.

    if they hit the playoffs in stride, everyone healthy, i think they’re absolutely a contender. not the favorite, but san antonio and phoenix are very very good.

    (and stephen a. picked the nuggs at the beginning of the season!)

  13. sloan Says:

    also, AI was brand new to the system last year, and they had those crazy suspensions. they’re going to be dangerous.

  14. Pat Says:

    haha jerry you should know better than to use a stephen a backing to support anything.

    2 things

    1) he thought the knicks were going to be a contender in the east
    2) Its not confirmed but if given the opportunity i’m pretty sure he would sleep with AI/Larry Brown or any member of that 76er team that made the finals. He could not gush about AI or LB any more than he does. He literally has man crushes on both.

    marbury’s thoughts: http://youtube.com/watch?v=mXGgmDhHu68

    you have to admit though, that ESPN commercial with stephen a. and carmelo is funny. it’s nice that SAS can poke a little fun at himself.

  16. Pat Says:

    I do like that commercial.
