Tony Parker was 15th. Derrick Rose was 2nd. No idea how reliable this source is though.

He has to worry about that 50 40 90 club membership man, but that shit does add up. They just shouldn't inbound the ball to him.
Hedo Turkolu suspended 20 games for steroid use LOLS man that must suck Chadwix. I'm an Orlando fan but if I didn't have the Knicks/Nets to root for (since Magic suck) I'd probably be fucking FURIOUS at the state Magic is in, especially with this steroid thing coming up and since Big Baby is out for a while with his broken foot or whatever.

Oh and I'm gonna make it easy since I'm assuming Skars is arguing with Jib whether Bulls or Spurs are better: they're both great but not gonna win a championship this year.

I'm sick of this bullshit regular season. I WANT PLAYOFFS ALREADY. Christ.
I think Tony Parker is quicker in that he can run into the paint and make a pro efficient shot. Derek Rose is quick himself but its more of an explosion of athleticism.
Speaking of Rose I heard he's in high 80%s in terms of how he feels but he's waiting until he's 110%.
Oh ya and I'm sure Spurs would have won last season tool not because of 3s but because the refs fucked them.
Shouldnt you be pulled off the court immediately after failing a test?
Our franchise is a joke, i said it 10 pages ago, they suckered the fans into buying a new area and now liquidate the team because the building will sell tickets to housewives and other non basketball fans who want a night on the town. The sad part is that our minor league hockey team, arena football team and other acts that passed through town had no issues selling the old place out. They threaten to leave 3 years in a row, i wish they would just leave already.

Man that spurs game came down the the final seconds Lenard made s 3 point shot with seconds left (asst. from Parker) Kyrie missed the 20 foot jumper with 2 secs left in the game.
I heard about that shit Skars. Spurs are clutch.
You guys can't see this game but KNICKS CAN'T MAKE A FUCKING LAYUP. I swear, like 4 fast breaks have passed and the Knicks miss them all. Christ. Knicks are gonna lose to Raptors tonight.
I gotta check up on Nets and Denver.
Looks like Chicago will lose to Boston lol///////

Denver has been playing pretty decently as well that's a good win for the Nets Joe Johnson score what 25 points not bad for my boy from Little Rock.
Highest effective field goal percents are Miami, Spurs, Thunder and people wonder why those teams are so good.

They asked Michael Jordan who has a better career up to this point, Kobe or Lebron. MJ basically said "the way I see it, five is better than one."
I don't understand why so much emphasis is placed on rings/titles/championships. Sure, that's the main goal, but that doesn't diminish how good of a player you are. Chris Paul is still the best point guard in the league even though he has no titles, and I'd say he had a better career than some scrub bench player or whatever who got carried to a title. Wtf guys.
Rings matter because they're the reason you play the game. You don't play for 2nd place. If a player can't win the big one more than once then he should lose points for that. That said, LeBron is fucking great and I think he has the potential to pass Kobe (and MJ too) but you can't say LeBron's had a better career at this point just because he has more potential. Kobe's got 4 more rings and at least 4 more years of excellent regular-season play than LeBron. That's a fair assessment.
I'm just waiting for this regular season to be over. The only story worth following at this point is if the Lakers are gonna make the playoffs or not. The other teams that matter are pretty much locked in (Spurs, Clips, Thunder, Grizzlies, Heat, Knicks) and no one else is gonna be able to take those teams down besides each other. I still think the Lakers could pull it together if they actually made the playoffs, so that's all I'm interested in at this point.
Kobe has had a better career than Lebron though. Doesnt mean it will stay that way.
MJ will also have more respect for Kobe than Lebron because of Lebron leaving Cleveland to team up with Wade/Bosh in the offseason. Those old school type players see that as trying to take the easy way, trying to be friends with others rather than trying to beat them. You can disagree with it but I know its similar to MJ's thought process and players of his ilk.
1) MJ doesn't respect fucking anybody
2) MJ played with Pippen arguably one of the best defensive players ever and a top 10-20 guy in his era. Also to spite the super team theory one name, Toni Kukoc. Ridiculously highly touted Euro player who came over to play for the Bulls on a big contract that caused huge drama with the team because he made more than Scottie Pippen, an in his prime legend. LeBron spent his years toiling away with Mo Williams. Kobe played his career with Shaq, Big Shot, Gasol and Fischer. He spent like literally three years of his career without a legit Hall of Famer on his team from 05-07. If you were to layout a list of "best teammates" for Jordan, Kobe, and LeBron, how far do you get before you get to a pre-Heat era teammate for LeBron? 10th? (And yes I exclude broken down Shaq). And seriously, haven't we crushed the myth of the "super team" not existing back in the day yet? Sure free agency exploited it less, but look at every single good team, in a small league btw, they all had several HoF members. You couldn't win a title then without at least two best of their era guys and you can't now.
3) MJ doesn't respect fucking anybody. He is a psychopath.
I think what you keep misunderstanding is the difference between good players being on one team and free agents all agreeing to sign on a team like its the same thing. Its not. And I dont know why you keep acting like it is. You can not care if you want, but some people do and Jordan is one of those people
Jordan quotes: "There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry [Bird], called up Magic [Johnson] and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team.' In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys. I'm a competitive guy and I like to play against competitive players and see what happens from there."
You can look at the teams.
Bulls: Jordan drafted, Pippen drafted, Rodman traded.
Spurs: Duncan drafted, Parker drafted, Ginobili drafted.
Lakers: Shaq Free Agent, the same year Kobe was a draft day trade (practically like being drafted) also meaning he was essentially a nobody when they first got placed on the same team. Later Pau Gasol traded.
OKC: Durant drafted, Westbrook drafted, Ibaka drafted.
Like I said you can choose to not care, just please stop acting like its the same thing
Yeah people love MJ and think Kobe and Lebron are selfish lulz Jordan is the biggest piece of garbage when it comes to attitude. I mean Charles Barkley is one of those guys you just love and MJ tore into him a few times on the Dream Team. IDK I bet Lebron doesn't have a HoF speech like Jordan's his will at least be respectful of his coaches and teammates and not just rip them apart.
Lebron did leave Cleveland so what I would have to Cleveland sucks and they wasn't even trying to get him any teammates worth a damn it would have been different if they would have gotten somebody besides a 50yr old shaq.
