First we had Portland,
then came Oklahoma City...
Who do you think will be the next young team to completely draft their dynasty?
wow, hold up. Dynasty? Go back a few years and tell me how the Mavs "dynasty" of Kidd, Jackson and Mash worked out. Or the Hornets Dynasty of Larry Johnson and Mourning. Or the Magic Dynasty of Shaq and Penny. Or the washington dynasty of Webber, Howard and Strickland. Or the etc. etc.
If Portalnd and OKC are already dynasty's then I think your standards are too low.
they arent yet but their both stacked for the future, and they both have a legitiment shot of winning a title in the future.
I WOULDN'T CALL PORTLAND NOR OKC DYNASTIES YET...FIRST U HAVE TO WIN SOMETHING..BUT THEIR FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT.........
I wasn't trying to be an a.ss, but there is a huge differnece between potential and dynasty. I mean there was a time that Toronto had a young Vince and TMac and everybody thought they were the future. You just have to wait on these things and see how they develop. But I agree that both OKC and Portland have put together sick promising squads.
So did you guys see that Oregon/Boise fight last night?
For Portland and Oklakoma City to be a dynasty, they need to at least to get in the playoffs and go to the Conference Finals consistently.
yeah but what wins title is centers and they have a good one in Oden. also point guards is a weakness but if you look back good point guards dont win titles very often. plus i think they have two defensive beasts in Oden, and Batum who i think could be all first team defender or 2nd if he beefs up. if not hell still be a great defender.
okay, so did that blount dude from Oregon throw a sucker punch or was the other dude deserving it?
I didn't see the game, I just saw the highlights on SportsCenter. But I think he deserves it. Before he threw the punch, you can see the Boise State guy talking stuff. But, he went too far when he tried to take down that fan.
yeah, I saw the end of it last night while I was at the gym. Then I watched the replays on espn.com. The Boise player started it, and he got hit. I just think after a physical football game, teams should just show respect to each other and let stuff go. If I just lost my season opener, and someone on the other team came up to me tapping me on the shoulder talking trash, I would probably hit him too.
As for the going after the fan part, I heard they called him nig.ger. He looked real upset, so maybe they did.
i saw the highlights, i think he deserved it, but he went too far.
that dude might not have been born yet when it was jackson, mash and kidd in dallas.. lol thats a little more than a few yrs.. jackson could score but been on 10000000 teams..
thanks for making me feel old bro. FYI, i share the same birthday as Clyde Drexler and Pistol Pete.
the boise st. kid deserved to get hit, but the oregon guy is a real dumbass too. the oregon kid was actually talkin shit before the game.. the boise st. kid shouldnt have talked shit after the win in return... and the oregon kid should definitely not have punched the boise st. kid on TV.
talking is not against the rules, and they both were talking(oregon before, boise st after the game). but when punches are thrown and that guy went pyscho that completely crossed the line. he should be and probably will be suspended for a while, maybe the season. you got a scholarship to a d1 school you have to behave regardless of whats being said to you.
yeah, I think a 4 game suspension with a short leash after would do. The Oregon player was definitely dumb, but putting rules aside, as a man, if you talk after a game, you better be ready to throw. Especially if you come up to me and tap me on the shoulder after I just lost and I'm minding my own business.
The clippers have a nice young core being put together with griffin gordan thornton and jordan,
the kids already been in trouble with his school before according to ESPN, i dont know if 4 games is enough if this isnt the first time hes been in trouble.. let alone fighting the other player, you cant try and go after fans.
