Vert few NBA superstars are willing to freely choose to go play with in Boston...with THIS team.

Especially a black one laugh.gif.

This is what I was trying to hint at.

That was Indiana after the brawl, and Minnesota a few years ago.

Only time a big time NBA player would go to Boston is if they were on the brink of a chip. And they aren't close. Fun, smart team...that runs cute lil sets with a good young coach.....

But ***** ain't trying to go to Boston for that laugh.gif.

Allen Iverson calls Steph Curry ‘a whole different monster’


Steph Curry has been taking criticism from some former NBA players, but Allen Iverson is not your average former NBA player. For one thing, of course, his career ended fairly recently, and even in his turn-of-the-millennium prime, he was ahead of his time in some ways.


In superficial terms, Iverson’s abundance of tattoos, which caused no little consternation while he played, are standard fare in today’s NBA, but his legacy of toughness and offensive explosion also make him a revered figure among current players. So Curry will be delighted to know that Iverson thinks the world of the Warriors guard.


In comments made Thursday at a Philadelphia 76ers event held at the famed Palestra arena, Iverson had this to say (via Sixers.com reporter Brian Seltzer) about Curry:


“He’s incredible. He’s different. He’s different. He’s something we’ve never seen. We’ve never seen this. It’s crazy to me, like just me being the biggest Michael Jordan fan, to see somebody come around like this. I have my idea of being incredible, you know what I mean? But this dude right here, like it’s different.

“It’s a whole different monster, as far as his handle and the way he shoots? Come on. You know you ain’t never seen nothing like this.”

Hmmm, Steph “A Whole Different Monster” Curry — that kind of has a ring to it. And Iverson is right, in that Curry’s combination of long-range marksmanship and ball-handling ability is unprecedented, and it makes the reigning MVP a nearly unstoppable force.


For his part, Iverson could beat anyone off the dribble — who could forget the time he dusted Jordan with a crossover? — but he was known as a volume shooter, and not at all an efficient one. Curry has a notably better career field-goal percentage than Iverson (.477 to .425) and a vastly better one from three-point range (.444 to .313).

Iverson’s career player efficiency rating (as measured by Basketball Reference) was a more-than-respectable 20.9, and he peaked at 25.9 in 2005-06. Meanwhile, Curry is at 23.0 for his career, and if he keeps up his mark this season of 32.2, he will notch the highest PER ever recorded (Wilt Chamberlain currently holds that record with a 31.82 in 1962-63).

Of course, Iverson was never surrounded by the kind of supporting cast that Curry enjoys in Golden State, but teammates can’t really help anyone make 30-footers, which the Warriors guard does with outrageous regularity. At Thursday’s event, another 76ers great, Julius Erving, spoke to Curry’s place in the modern NBA.

“I think that’s a great team, and I think that’s a reflection of the evolution of the game,” Erving said (via NBA.com). “It’s so interesting when they talk about creating a simulator to duplicate what Steph Curry has done on the court, and the simulator can’t measure up, because it just doesn’t look real. But that’s what he’s been doing on the court, things that really don’t look real to the normal eye. You have to give him kudos for that.”

Good to know that, for all the Oscar Robertsons and Walt Fraziers shaking their fists at how today’s NBA lets Curry excel in ways he would supposedly never be allowed to in their time, there’s a Dr. J around to simply give a great player his due. It’s not like every NBA player these days is doing what Curry is doing; in fact, it’s just him.

Or, as Iverson put it, the Golden State star is “a whole different monster.” Leave it to “The Answer” to cross up those who would question Curry’s unique skill set.

Cavs GM talked to LeBron James about his social media use




It sounds like LeBron James got a talking-to from the Cavs’ GM about his recent social media use.

James has been causing a stir in the sports world with the cryptic tweets he’s been sending lately. Many have speculated that the tweets were passive-aggressive messages towards teammates. James denies that is the case.

Even if the tweets are not subtle messages about his teammates, James' Twitter activity receives a lot of attention and creates a distraction among his team. For that reason, Cavs GM David Griffin spoke with LeBron about his social media activity.

During Thursday night’s Lakers-Cavs game, TNT reporter Ric Bucher shared the tidbit about Griffin talking with James.

“I’ve been told [James] immediately told his teammates what [his tweets were] about and that it wasn’t about them. GM David Griffin told me he has talked to LeBron about his social media use, but not in a way to suggest that he shouldn’t be doing it," Bucher reported.

“The sense with Griffin is that [the Cavs] are just a little bit bored at this point in the season and are waiting right now until it gets to when it really matters and they have something to prove … LeBron is basically entertaining himself with those tweets."

You get the sense that James enjoys toying with fans and the media, knowing that with every tweet he sends, he can create headlines and force the sports world to stop. The best explanation we got from LeBron about his Twitter activity was what he said earlier this week (his full comments here).

Perhaps James’ Twitter activity is over-analyzed and overblown. But one good sign for Cavs fans is that at least their GM wasn’t too afraid to talk with James about this matter, which is important for accountability purposes.

Has had a really good month thus far... Which is encouraging...

See if he can sustain it.


February had some good games sprinkled in... Wasn't a particularly good month for him.

Im gonna sound like one of those "get off my lawn" dudes but I really hate how fans went from:

"X player should leave because he won't win a ring there"

to

"x player will re-sign for two years because the salary will increase by 40% by then and he will be able to sign for $100 million more when you factor in his Bird Rights."

Takes the fun out of it laugh.gif

I mean I can't even blame players like that,the increased cap should definitely change their calculus laugh.gif

the amount of caping for any lebron team is hilarious. One minute they don't like each other and have no concept of the roles on the team and the next they're so good they're bored and are ready to start the finals again. foh

Other Tanguay gems off the top of my head

- Insisted that Pierce would be traded at the deadline in 2012

- Called for Rondo to be traded pretty much the entire time he was here

- Thought Jeff Green could step in and replace Pierce as the #1 option

- Said KG wasn't a dominant defensive player because he didn't take charges

- Said LeBron wasn't a top 5 player in the league and was borderline top 10 (this was a few years ago when he was unquestionably the best player in the league)

- Said Ben Gordon was a premiere SG in the league (this was like 2 years ago)

- Said shooting threes is a sign of laziness and arrogance

- Said this past summer that Danny Ainge should be on the hot seat

D.Wade, Lebron, Bosh, T.Bow, A.Hernandez, Turkolough and my main man A.Gordon. Evan Fourniers hairline also a side effect of dopping. Coconut Deltoid Shoulder Dwight as well. And lets not forget Whitesidr, dude was a 60 in NBA2K way back but now all Hulked out.

The correlations are so evident.

Still kind of boggles my mind that there are people all over this country getting paid to spew out stupid sports takes on a daily basis. I hope the local trolls like this guy don't make that much.
