I bet if Kareem was one inch taller he would have broken down and played much less than 1500 games.

Wow! Chip, that hurts!

And most (all?) of the players 7'3" or taller were not nearly as skilled as KZ.

Hmmm.   That's been there since he forced his way out.  Might need updating.

Oh no, please NOOOOOOO!
I like the salads in Dallas 🥗

If KZ were one inch shorter no one would have to worry about his health.
It's a dumb argument, based on a small sample which doesn't match KZ much at all.

Guys like Big Z and Yao had foot problems due to their immense weight (with the running/jumping).  Not similar to KZ.

Sean Bradley 832 games at 7'6".  But also not a KZ type or game.

BoZ, you made your argument before and Chip is thoroughly devastated and humiliated already.
Be a good boy and just let it go.

PS. Phool J. still a fool.

Far be it from me to get involved in an intraforum squabble about big men's health issues, but from my recall big men and the stress they put on the legs-kness-ankles-feet is pretty well documented.

From Russell's arthtitic knees to Walton to McHale, to Ralph Sampson, Oden, Yao Ming, Andrew Bynum more recently Embiid the stress these guys place on relatively fragile joints, tendons and bones from the pounding they give them seems something to be aware of and not so quickly dismissed.

Agree.
A lot of Bigs bodies can't handle the stress/abuse/grind.
I just don't think the 7'3" cutoff is especially relevant.
It's Hollinger's argument.  Chip just linked it up.

KZ should probably limit his drives to stay healthy.
Gallo had the same issue (at 6'10").

Chris Paul to BUCKS gains some steam

Paul is still one of the NBA’s better defenders at point guard, which means the Bucks could feel comfortable with him replacing Bledsoe on that end. Putting the salaries together to acquire Paul wouldn’t be much of a challenge. Bledsoe, Hill, DiVincenzo, and D.J. Wilson would work. The trouble is that Oklahoma City likely prefers not to take on long-term salary, so a third team could be required. The Bucks would likely face competition in any pursuit of Paul. League sources say the Sixers front office has seriously debated the idea of chasing CP3. The Knicks, in desperate need of a player to lure prospective free agents, could also make a run at him after his former agent, Leon Rose, took over as team president. But there likely won’t be a lot of suitors for Paul. Not many teams need a point guard, nevermind an old one with an injury history making $41.4 million in 2020-21 with a player option to make $44.2 million in 2021-22. Paul proved this season he’s still a damn good player, but that doesn’t mean many teams want him.

3Q -- I like how Raps are doubling and leaving open Wanamaker and Ojelaye.

TOR announcers are huge homers, but at least detail oriented about plays and strategy.
Seems the commercials in Canada are a bit more arty and intelligent than US ads.

TOR should attack Kemba's defense.

Hey Bank
« Reply #13316 on: September 11, 2020, 11:51:01 PM »

Hey, congratulations Bank!
Wish we had a team to root for in NY.

PS. Tatum is a fucking monster!
Even Chamaco Cartero agrees with that.
Well, ok, not sure about this last part.

Thanks Carlos-Tatum had a monster game and a great series, but the soul of the Celts is Marcus Smart.

I've been telling you guys for awhile he's a niddle-lineback playing hoops.

His intangibles are hard to calculate but he makes so many winning plays.

He's an acquired taste but I love him as a player.

just a winner

If you got no one to root for for the next hopefully 3-4 weeks, I can get you a pass for the Celts bandwagon-always looking for good basketball fans

From a discussion on Ainge and Riley hating each other for decades:

Quote
They hated each other in the 1990s, when Ainge was playing for the Phoenix Suns and Riley was coaching the New York Knicks and they both were involved in a brawl. Ainge and Riley ended up on the deck, Riley ripping his pants. It led to a record 21 players getting fined or suspended.

I went to the vid and oddly enough it's a pair of confrontations between Doc Rivers and Kevin Johnson that ignites things.   After initial jawing and annoyance, on the next play KJ cheap shots Doc, who goes after him.  Competitive guys, but also both known as classy and even tempered. 

Riley ends up down on the court.  The MSG camerawork isn't good and misses much of what goes on, and not that much goes on, except for Greg Anthony in street clothes punching a held KJ (MSG misses it, so it's like radio and were told about it).  Knix had Oak and Mason, guys you don't want to mess with.  But this was a Knick guard affair with Doc, Starks and Greg Anthony (injured/not playing) all getting ejected.

You can see why the NBA implemented the No Leaving the Bench rule, to limit brawl participation.  But later over-enforcement of that really screwed the Nash Suns.

Big time rebound.

Norm Powell should've blocked out.
It was also Powell who got his layup blocked my smart on the play before.  Gotta dunk that.
Poor Powell.  He can't be feeling good.
