    Yep!

    Remember when people said LeBron would be the sidekick?

    Gets old watching him whine and make faces to the refs on a regular basis but that's just the nature of the NBA these days. Great performance last night though.

    So you're saying you'd build a team around Dirk rather than Lebron? Dirk's great, but I still take Lebron. That game Dirk had the other night was ridiculous though.

    One game does not a player make.

    And I've never ever ever ever heard you make a case that Dirk is the best player in the game. Is that your narrative now? Or just "anyone to make sure Lebron isn't the best?"

    Yep. It's just something that goes with the territory of watching the NBA, watched it for years out here with Carmelo too. I just try to ignore it as much as possible.

    Well, considering the age difference you'd definitely rather build around LeBron. But Dirk was and is the best player in the game for the 2010-11 season and playoffs.

    When all is said and done though Dirk ends up being Top 12 to 15 player of all time. LeBron ends up Top 5. IMO of course.

    Just curious, would you have said that before game one of the western finals? I'm actually a pretty big Dirk fan, but I wouldn't say Dirk has been better than LBJ, Wade, Durant, and maybe a few others.

    I don't know about that. IF you want to call their offensive games a wash, Lebron is still so much better on defense than Dirk. I love watching Dirk but I can't imagine any way that he's a better overall player than Lebron.

    I don't follow the league all that much, but the Mavericks lead the league in guys who I didn't know were still playing.

    Jason Kidd
    Jason Terry
    Shawn Marion
    Brian Cardinal
    DeShawn Stevenson
    Peja Stojakovic
    Caron Butler
    Brandon Haywood

    They had a sequence against the Lakers where I think I had that "Oh he's still playing" as all 5 guys on the floor touched the ball.
    When people say that I don’t know what I’m talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    I'll bet Kingspoint is happy about this.

    [QUOTEGeneral Manager Rich Cho, who took over the job in Portland last year, is no longer with the organization.

    This news comes a couple days after we learned Cho wanted to suspend Brandon Roy for his Game 2 comments in Round 1, but was overruled by coach Nate McMillan and owner Paul Allen. Cho apparently wasn't a good fit, and you have to wonder if the Blazers miss Kevin Pritchard. Cho will be replaced by Director of Scouting Chad Buchanan for now

    Mavs were totally outplayed tonight by OKC yet somehow weathered the storm and pulled out a big win. Going back to Big D to try and finish off the Thunder. Dirk came up big again scoring 40 for the Mavs.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
