you are so stupid its amazing
locker rooms isn't one word btw
lolz at your fat ass running a basketball clinic, I bet kids walked out of there worse than when they entered
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Seen Rebound about a million times, Im sure you will tell me that you shared needles with him so your knowledge of Earl trumps mine but anything else you want to assume you know about us you loudmouth Jersey jackass ?
Lebron's season last year was one of the best 2 seasons of all-time, GOAT season belonging to Jordan.
Bird could shoot, but in every other facet Lebron was the better player.
Whole lot of idiocy ITT
Only Gomez would say an addicted hard drug addict was the best player he ever saw
Most know who Lloyd Daniels was, and although very talented his talent was that incredible to where you could argue he belonged in the same sentence as Jordan, Kobe or LeBron
Jordan, Kobe and Lebron couldn't hold a candle to Lloyd. Trust me when I say that he was more talented than all of them and it's not even close, but talent doesn't matter if it isn't applied.
Love how Nova has a response to everything... google is amazing and it has made people like this retard more stupid by the second.
btw, 81 in a row, ignorant asshole.
Lebron is much better than Bird was in his prime. It's not even close.
btw, I have NO IDEA wtf Rebound is, retardo. While you're jerking off in theaters to tall black men, I was actually there watching, recruiting, scouting and coaching.
i would take bird, though, in my scenario above.
he was more of a team guy
www.yohoodent.com ... errybawdee awn ignorle
And to me, that's a VERY valid argument. Lebron the better player, yes, but was Bird better for your TEAM? Probably and an edge could go to Bird in that category, however, as Lebron grows as a player and becomes more of a facilitator, the edge might go to Lebron. Love Larry Bird though. Guy had less talent than Nova and was an NBA all star for years....
Its a movie based on Earl Manigault's life
Its truly sad that you actually coach kids in sports, I feel sorry for all the kids who have played for your stupid ass
And judging by the picture of yourself, I would dominate your fat ass on a basketball court
You keep coaching though dawg, those who can't do... teach, or try to teach I should say in your case
a lot of my 5 has to do with chemistry
the back court would be amazing with magic, kobe and jordan
then bird and shaq low...
of course magic defended like a forward, too...
i don't know, that crew would be hard to beat in my eyes
The problem is that Bird, Magic and Shaq are defensive liabilities. Whereas Jordan and Kobe are locked down defenders, Shaq is slow and needs help on pick and pops on the perimeter. If they ran it on the side where either Magic or Bird is defending, you get no rotation and you're gonna leave guys spotting for three or cutting their face to the basket. One guy you can TRY to hide, which if you notice nowadays in the NBA is rather difficult, thus everybody is pretty good at defending. Even guys like Ginobili can keep a guy in front for a bit.
I think you already have the 2 guard in Jordan or Kobe, so switch one out and you have the 6 9 passer in Magic or Bird, so switch one out. JMO.... but I still like your team.
bird and magic were pretty good defenders in their prime, which is what the OP said.
and shaq, as long as there's no 3 second rule, or that halo thing under the goal, he was good, too.
I don't know about Magic and Bird being good defenders... They were smart yes, but they struggled to guard anybody off the dribble. Away from the ball and on the glass, yes, they were solid, but on the ball, they were nervous to say the least. I had a great talk this past Saturday night with Bill Laimbeer at my place. Got him to throw up the U, too!
And with no 3 seond rule, shaq is great, but when he has to step out to ball screens, he's a liability. Your team might be a DAMN GOOD zone team though!!
Basing a claim off of just talent, in this case, is pretty weak IMO.
Big difference between players with talent, greatness, and skill, and a player that was once "the most talented."
So what, iyo, Daniels was better as a 18-20 yr old kid?
Jordan was once cut from his hs bball team. That tells you that there were a lot of NBA players that were probably more talented than him as a teenager.
Talent doesn't = greatness.

im goin russel
This team has got it all. Its got 2 of the greatest perimeter defenders in history. Durant will likely go down as the purest scorer in history. On this team he'd be a catch and shoot guy. Then you go Duncan in the post and Russell cleans up.
I went with Russel over Hakeem because Duncan and Hakeem just seemed to share to many strengths. Russel Fit this team. The guy really didn't need to be the focal point to earn his keep.
Oh, and MJ... he's good

Teein' Off on Links
This MJ stuff is sort of wrong. The story goes that he tried out for Varsity his freshman year and didn't get pulled up. Everybody acts like he sucked. Not the case
I'd go with:
PG - Oscar Robertson
SG - Micheal Jordan
SF - Larry Bird
PF - Tim Duncan
C - Hakeem Olajuwon
I'd have LeBron be the first off the bench. Bird would start only because of his shooting ability and the starters have enough dominant scorers already. Its tough to put LeBron on the bench because of how athletically gifted he is and I like his defense.

"I was brought in here to change the culture. I'm going to coach with passion" - Fran McCaffery.
I think he was a 15 yr old sophomore (iirc).
And, from his own words, he tried out for varsity and didn't make the team.
So, I guess he wasn't cut, but he couldn't make the team.

Not sure who your PG is....
Before Bosch and Wade he wasn't any where near the consideration for GOAT.
Not really fair to compare the old NBA with the new NBA.
Game was more physical and there were huge advantages to the defense in the 80's. There were fist fights in games without ejections, just technicals given.
Players like Lebron would not put up the same numbers back in the 80's.
