You can't tell me that he is unable to contribute.

I know he was a drag in Detroit but he was a major reason why Houston excelled AND, It seems his bad attitude stems from the lack of respect he seems to get. Houston should have kept him though.

I know they have Donatas and Terrence but God Dammnit of those 2 haven't contributed much for Houston this far.

He's only not been playing in the last two games. Doc put Aldrich in for garbage time in our loss to Houston, he played well in that little stretch and all of a sudden Cole is the back up C and Josh is getting DNPs. Coach Doc. Josh has actually been solid for the Clippers and is statistically our best rim protector. Why Doc can't try playing Aldrich and Doc together is completely baffling to me, especially when playing Paul Pierce at 4 always ends up being a disaster.

So, us Clippers fans are talking about Josh not playing, but you just probably haven't seen it because its a pretty new development.

Yup. Julius randle to his left
 

 

Ha, never saw Julius either. Another good catch.

 

 

So the Cavs were at full strength while the Warriors were missing two key pieces, but still lost?!? Interesting. 

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

Quote:
"Understand what I'm saying when I say this. He's hurting the game," Jackson said. "And what I mean by that is that I go into these high school gyms, I watch these kids, and the first thing they do is they run to the 3-point line. You are not Steph Curry. Work on the other aspects of the game."

Curry chuckled at Jackson's comments but also seemed confused by them.

"I have to talk to him," Curry told Yahoo Sports. "I don't know what he means by that. If you can shoot, shoot. If you can't, stop."

Warriors center Andrew Bogut, who also played under Jackson, didn't appreciate his former coach's remarks.

"Anything he says, you can take that with a grain of salt," Bogut said. "And you can quote me on that."

I get his overarching point and it's actually a good one but damn that one line of salt is gonna get everyone to disregard the rest of what he said laugh.gif
post #35440 of 93193
I agree to an extent with mark. Steph got kids shooting horrific shots that only he can take and make.

I think Steph is on his way to becoming a goat, btw
post #35441 of 93193
I took it as him trying to be cool. People used to say mj hurt the game because they tried to emulate the flair but lacked fundamentals. Yall remember that "maybe it's my fault" commercial was a byproduct of that. So mark is just parroting that sentiment and trying to make waves.

Lol kids always going to copy who's on top.

Just thank your lucky stars that person is not Harden.

Jackson has a point. He's in the position now where anything he says that's not slurping the Warriors is a form of disrespect. It's not Currys responsibility to change his play style. However the effect on the younger crowd could hurt them down the road if they have real NBA aspirations.

Good catch.

Only other guys I was able to spot are Kennedy Meeks and Tyler Ennis. 
I think that's RHJ next to Meeks too.

He does not have a point. People always try and emulate the greats, you can make that point about any player.

The point is young people are trying to emulate a player who they can't be. Ignoring the fundamentals and skills they might have in pursuit of being the next Curry. Sure you can use any player as a example but the point remains the same.

It's just Jackson saying it that people have a problem with. If Hubie said it I'd doubt many would care he did.

KOBE READIES FOR FINAL BOSTON VISIT

Kobe Bryant will play his last game in TD Garden on Dec. 30, and the retiring Lakers star knows it will be a special game: "There's something about that [Celtics] green. It's a different green than any other green that's in the world. It's weird. It's like that green glows."

Besides being the greatest shooter ever, Curry is an underrated all around player too.

Probably still better than seeing a kid get arrested for rape wearing a Kobe jersey and Crazy 8's

That can't be real.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

I agree. You know how a child's mind works. It's the flashy parts of the game they emulate. It's why we have so many people who value scoring over all other parts of the game now. The fan mentality has also become child like.

Wall is the perfect example. Elite passer and great defensively but "he can't score" is often brought up. Averaging about 20 in the NBA is looked at as not being able to score in 2015.
