tezo83 have you ever played basketball? and had a injury?....you still wear a knee brace just in case or you feel comfortable with it..same with rip hamilton and face mask..if you were never a ball player with a injury then i can understand you not knowing that
Is he playing next game?
goes up for the DUNK AND SHAMWOW
Bj Mullens is good, I expected him to go in the paint, but he's making nice jumpers
has nice touch on the shot
yea he has a nice lil touch..still soft downlow though
I've played more ball in one month than you have in your whole life. 4 year starter in high school & 3 year starter in college. I actually seriously sprained my acl/mcl in college. I wore a knee brace & then sleeve until it was completely healthy & I finished my rehab. After that though, there was no point in wearing it. It's not like you have 100% mobility w/ it on. My point is, if he's still wearing all that luggage, it's not safe to say he's knee is completely ready to go. I mean, I can understand always wearing ankle tape/ankle braces for pre-caution, but a huge knee brace?
hummm interesting..well i played 3 years highschool..got in trouble so missed a year in hs...played juco then then charlston southern..ive played in venezula,turkey,greece,andfindland this past year..next year im playing in holland...you can check my resume if you like..kurtis rice....so i seriously doubt that you have played more in a month then i have played my whole career (ive also torn my acl a year and a half ago..i need surgery on my shoulder)...unless you played nonstop for awhole month....so youre name would be what exactly so i can check out youre resume...usually i dont talk about my self but when some guy who thinks hes better then me runs his mouth i tend to react
Anyone got the stats for the Oklahoma game?
wow kurt he got a tad personal and called you out..lol..im curious to see what kinda player he was...by the way i ran into B today and he said he crossed you up the other day at 24hr fitness..lol
i think westbrook finished with 12-14
...but i could be wrong..i didnt fully watch the whole game....tezo83 or should i call you mr basketball..still waiting on that basketball resume buddy.......jakarii33...it was luck and i was picked by a 6'7 240 dude he should have been able to cross me..if you see him again ask him why he moved out the way when i went down the lane for a dunk...hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Ha ha... I find it hard to believe that you play overseas considering you've had time to write 1208 posts. I also find it hard believing that you've even attended college considering your grammar & sentence structure. Learn the difference between "your" & "you're". I'd say you're probably a middle schooler or early high schooler.
I'll take your word for it though. I don't think I'm better than you nor am I "running my mouth". Calm down bro! I just think that if Livingston's knee was completely ready to go, he wouldn't be wearing that much luggage. A sleeve maybe...
well for one my season ended months ago..for 2 im really not concerned about spelling on here since im not being tested on it and its not a job and im typing fast..reguardless what you believe i would think you would be the youngin considering the name calling..please dont get mad because youre career didnt go past college and youre obviously not better than me...ive actually met some people who are on here who can back up who i am..i still havent seen any proof that you even played basketball...now since you seem to really like picking apart my grammar lets go back and make sure youre grammar is correct in all youre post shall we...while im doing that can you please show the proof that you even played basketball????
My Mock Draft (as of 05/25/09)
The Pacers needs are power forward & point guard.....pacers need..no s
If they're able to re-sign both, they MAYBE I could see them drafting a two guard. ...then not they
there are more that i dont need to put up becaus ei made my point which is..no one on here is perfect..i see soooo many people misspell or forget a comma or use a word incorrectly, and i do to ..do they care no do i care no..do i tell them..hey you write like youre in middle school...no because what exactly does that accomplish..i didnt come on here to tell people im better or as you say ( played more in a month then youre whole career) i came to give my opnion and share my knowledge of the game and get in basketball disscussions and disagreements to help past the time..personally i feel its low to call out people on a site like this for grammar errors or claim to be better then someone who you know nothing about..actually i think ill make that a topic so thanks in that reguards
Dang why all the hate and yall arguing over nothing. Tez does have a point about the brace if it is as big as you say and you Kurtis have a point with saying if you have a acl injury like that you will tend to be cautious with it because that kind of injury takes a while for you to not need a brace and with Livingston being so skinny it make be a good thing for him to keep it on for a while because if he bangs that area again, his knee can swell. I have not played ball as much as yall did but I have injuried my knee quite a few times and you do tend to wear a brace for awhile unless you just stop playing for the most part for a few years and your body fully heals but my injury was not a ACL so I don't know. Yall need to be easy and enjoy the basketball no need for ego clashing.
It really just depends on the individual. Some players heal quicker than others. Some people may need to wear a brace for years while others wear it for a month. Haha that was funny though yall arguing over who has player ball longer. Its all good. Grammar isnt a huge concern on this forum IMO.
That's fat &$#%#&@! still gaming
Yall gotta keep me updated on these summer league games. I have a MAC so I cant watch the games live. Looking at the box scores only tells me so much.
Get back to talking about summer league, I learned a lot listening to yall. I have not been watching it. I can't wait to Evans , Curry, and Randolph play in their summer league. Glad to see Harden play some well. Westbrook is not a point right now but he will learn and also Harden is a better passer than people will acknowledge. The site i was on trying to watch the summer league i could not tell who was who it was too far back. The camera sucked.
HEY I WAS READY TOO KEEP IT straight basketball hey started it with the more basketball in a month..so i had to defend my honor..lol.....im kinda watching the bosotn jazz game but its pretty boring..ill probably go to the store instead
I thought Mac were on point. I did not know they have issues with streaming. Learn something new.
Kurtis you questioned his knowledge too so it was yall having a &$#%#&@! contest. I don't know none of yall personally but I have never known tez to start stuff so i wanted to keep this easy and I happen to know that you josh or Kurtis dont be causing issues either so let's be easy. Why is your screen name Josh Huestis though lol.
Macs are cool...I like mine but for some reason I think you have to have windows media player to watch the games live
Oh okay and since when did p issing mean a bad word lol
eric maynor is player well....i picked this name because its my younger cousins name who plays football and when i first came up here i came to basically pump him up....like how some peoples name on here is rubio..knicks....clippers...and a couple off the wall names
Ha ha... What started this was me basically saying that I didn't think Livingston's knee was 100% ready to go. "Kurtis" then got sensitive & questioned if I'd ever played basketball lol. I've played a lot of competitive ball. I don't need to brag though bro. Those days are behind me. My job is in a suit & tie now... Behind a desk lol.
IMO, he wouldn't be wearing that heavy brace AND sleeve if his knee was 100% ready to go. I mean, I wore a sleeve for a couple weeks even after my knee was 100% just in case, but it was light weight. Livingston looks A LOT better, but I still don't think he's 100%. That was a terrible injury... Many people thought his career was over. When his knee is 100%, I think we'll see a lighter brace or just a sleeve.
As far as the grammar goes... I was honestly just joking. I didn't think he'd take it that seriously. I apologize if it hurt you "Kurtis".
Howd they look? I saw the stats but my guy said they looked REAL impressive and David Thropes twitters said the same thing. I have a MAC also n couldnt watch it, got me hella pissed. BTW, Kurtis I looked you up and you're legit, straight killing, 16.6 points and 6.0 rebounds, I might have to connect with you because I'm tryna help some of my guys get overseas too but anyways can yall let me know how Livingston and Harden looked?
man the jazz look pretty bad...actually thats a understatement
Livingston had 7 points 6 asst & 0 turnovers...that is pretty solid. Glad he is back.
both players looked pretty good..as far as making it overseas you have to go to the camps..the biggest is the esl camp,.this year its in vegas newyork chicago and cali i think..also have to get a agent because they have connections..get a game tape as well as a highlight tape ....make it a tape of youre best game though...and thats pretty much it
thanks for that. yea I helped get my friend to Portgual last year. I did alot of stuff thru Eurobasket, got the tapes and all that so I'm always looking for other ways to help them out, its appreciated. but yea keep me posted on how JR Giddens, Coby Karl and Robert Swift look
