For someone nicknamed the Manimal, Faried sure is soft as a tissue.

Feeding the Abscess

Posted 27 December 2012 - 07:07 AM

I don't recall any player who had the same speed/explosiveness after an ACL tear. Baron Davis, Chris Webber, Tim Hardaway, Brandon Roy, Shaun Livingston, and Michael Redd all suffered ACL injuries and none were the same since. However, that doesn't mean that Rose can get back to playing at an MVP-level. He may not be as quick and explosive as before, but he should still have great speed and an improving jumpshot to help him lead the Bulls


Adrian Peterson.

Rose was actually slow laterally - his draft workout agility drill was actually slower than DeJuan Blair. Yes, 280 pound and no ACLs DeJuan Blair. It's why he's a matador on defense. This injury might actually improve his lateral quickness, since he'll assuredly have to work on lateral movement in his rehab, something he clearly neglected prior to the injury.

I cant stand watching the heat. If they arent getting away with calls, they are crying to the refs like babies, and im talking about their superstars.

I'm surprised that Phil Jackson has turned into Brett Favre, as far as being a "retired" coach that could return if the right opportunity comes up. Every opening we see pop up will result in some sort of comment from him or his people about whether he's interested in taking the job.

You read it. You can't unread it.

^Well, now that Avery Johnson got fired today, reports are saying the Nets are going to reach out to Phil Jackson.

Clippers are the best team in the NBA right. Perfect December 16 for 16, 17 straight wins. Still more people talking about them Lakers. Shame cuz this Clips team is really exciting.

I'd love to see all the Laker fans in LA jump on the Clipper bandwagon during the playoffs. I really would.

Sane reason why more people talked about the Jets instead of the Broncos. Makes better TV.

Damn Lakers lose third straight, likely to extend to 6 by the end of the week with games against the Rockets, Spurs, and Thunder. SMFH!!! Only 3 Lakers scored in the 4th quarter, Kobe had 18 and the other 2 had a total of 4 points, off free throws. Fuck.

The Rockets decided to suspend Royce White.

For the longest time both he and the team were pretty vague with the issues they had with one another. I really didn't have an opinion but White came off as pretty unfavorable from what I read on his twitter.

Then I read an article on SI.com that explained the situation pretty clearly. I now agree with White's position almost wholeheartedly.

On to more happy news, Rockets pulled out another win tonight. The Bearded One aka James Harden is just a pleasure to watch. He's almost unstoppable when attacking the rim. I'm looking forward to the Lakers game on Tuesday.

And is anybody else going to the All-Star game this year? I got tickets to some events this year as a late Christmas present.

The Sixers are my team. Hopefully we can get Andrew Bynum back soon. I foresaw Jrue Holiday's stardom a couple years ago. Rather proud of that. Clips look good.

Haven't you figured it out yet fanboys? Your mommy can't afford both consoles! Be grateful with what you got and shut the Fuck up.

White is too mentally unstable to play in the NBA. I bet if the Rockets could just pay him for the few preseason games he played and nothing more he would have been cut by now.

Yeah, no one saw that coming. That's why he slipped all the way to the first round. Not to mention being a McDonald's All American, winning the Gatorade POTY as a HS senior, and being top 5 in his recruiting class. Are you sure you're not a pro scout?

I can't speak on White's mental stability, but I think he's a talented player with potential and I do stand with him when it comes to this matter on mental health. What player in ANY sport would want the safety of their mental health left in the hands of executives over doctors? But like the SI article mentioned, I think White could've gone about this in a better way.

Somebody not named Kobe needs to blow up.

Feel like the '03-04 Lakers superteam could take the court today and still take this iteration to the woodshed.

Basically what I'm saying is nobody knew who he was now their all jumping on his dick.

You dare insult the great Bill Worrell and Clyde "The Glide" Drexler? Those are fighting words my friend.

Rockets got the W and Harden has now tied a franchise record with Moses Malone for most consecutive 25+ point games. If Harden and Lin can keep this kind of play up for the rest of the month, I foresee both of them snatching up All-Star spots.

Everybody hates other teams announcers when their team loses. I can't count how many people I know who hate Mike Gorman and Tommy Heinsohn, but I also live in LA.

Only Drexler is ok but whoever the other idiots were were just terrible. During a 3 on 1 fast break Parsons i believe traveled with no contact and was called for it, and these idiots were like "foul call.... what travel wtf!?1 they called traveling -insert superstar here- get away with it all the time" derp.

Also, shout outs to Honey Nut Cheerios being an effective way to get under Melos skin. LOL KG

Another lol

Maloof superdickery time! Let's see if the Kings will become the Sonics next season. Anything that gets the Maloofs out of a position of ownership I invite at this point. Conniving fucks...

I feel bad for the fans in Sac Town. They care about their team a lot and it sucks to see it go down this way.

My girlfriend just brought me home a cool Seattle Supersonics hat from her trip up to Seattle this past Christmas. Funny how that worked out.

What a piece of shit the maloofs are. Only good thing to come out of the supposed deal is that they no longer have any business owning a team. Wish the same could happen to Sterling,Sarver, and maybe Bennet.
