You get what it's all about. It's not the only way to play but it's a fun way and can be successful, that's all I'm trying to say. It's funny the parallel with D'Antoni's style and the Bang.
I've never had a 2.5 k/d in any mode, I think that's also an attribute that can lead to a lot of success, but I'm not sure that's the road for me and many other players.
I played PS3 many years but switched to Live last year. I had the same name on PS3.
It's also funny that a thread with "tag dropping" in the title turned to Call of Duty, where Kill Confirmed is my favorite game and I see dropped tags all over the place, even in my sleep and on the road!
Sometimes I will catch a fire hydrant out of the corner of my eye on the road and wish to lunge toward it.
I play also gamertag : Knicks Are Back
the guy is not a winner.......I will say it a milion times....His character is not one to be admired.....we need winners...dont ask me to list players...better yet lets stick with the losers of the nba and never get better...look at the unknown players in the conference finals....look at novak , look at lin....players are out there
What makes a winner Skisloper? I you don't mind me asking how are Lin and Novak winners?
^^yeah, I'm interested in seeing his reply to this post too.
JR is the best option out there right now. We can't afford any of the really good free agents (D-Will, KG, Ray Allen, etc.) and most of the other guys really aren't worth looking at.
Also, I agree with 1985 and Baller. What makes a winner and how do Lin and Novak meet that criteria?
Would u rather have Lin or JR ?
The point that u keep missing is there are NBA players out there that just do not get a shot...Look at LIN, Look at Blair , Look at George Hill....
we fill the roster with guys like JR and we will get the same result over and over again......
A winner would be classified as a class act guy...not someone busy tweeting naked women, getting arrested for no liscense, tweeting after the worst playoff performance of his career good bye NY,,,,,,,,,,,WHAT DO U NOT GET.....
That is not a guy with character or am I missing something ?
In simpler words.....
Given the choice 6 months ago would u rather have Lin or JR ?
Are u telling me there are no more Lin's out there ?
Something does tell me there are more JR;s out there who will chuck until u puke.
There is no such thing as a "winner" & a "loser". The right situation can make any player a "winner" & the wrong situation vice versa. Look at Steven Jackson now with the Spurs, dude is looking like a cold blooded assassin out there a key part to a potential championship winning formula. Over his career he's been widely known as a malcontent, difficult to coach & has had several run ins with teammates, coaches, refs & sometimes fans. Is he a winner or a loser? I think this might be a poor choice of words. Maybe what you're referring to is his questionable shot selection? Or the occasional lack of focus on the floor? There's no denying JR has a ton of talent. His shot selection definitely needs work & he needs to be more aware out on the floor, but at $2.5 million (if he does not opt out) it's going to be hard to find better options. Not sure if you could get this guy for that amount, but Shannon Browne might be a decent alternative that will bring a lot of the same types of high flying plays in transition.
Do some research and you will find plenty of people you deem "class act" as having run ins with the law and other off-court issues at one point or another. Your winners vs losers argument is full of fluff and dated.
JR is a deadly scorer that will take some questionable shots, but if that's your only issue then you just don't like him because from a talent standpoint he's worth more than $2.5 mil and that's a huge bargain for us. He could easily get the full mid level and it wouldn't be considered overpaying.
Once again, if you know a better option for the vet min please let us know.
Please don't tell me your preferred plan is to gamble on some Euro or Dleague player and hope he's a "winner".
