    LOL@Check Two posting those pictures of Dwayne Wade, Tyson Chandler, Russell Westbrook hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Those guys are wearing wack clothes and shoes in those pictures. I've seen Russell's clothes often when he speaks to the media after the games and he wears terrible clothes. Those glasses make him look stupid too. Kevin Durant wears terrible clothes too. The Nets suck. Check Two, i'm surprised i haven't heard you diss Jerry Stackhouse since you diss old NBA players. I don't know why he came back to the league. He should've retired a long time ago. I saw him on the NBA network a few times as a commentator in the studio. He should've continued doing that. After watching him play yesterday against Boston, he needs to quit. I saw Serge Ibaka dunk on him a few weeks ago LOL. Knicks and Lakers game was good and so was Oklahoma and Miami. I saw some of the Houston and Chicago game and Houston crushed them 120-97. I'm gonna watch Cleveland and Wizards game tonight. Just playing LOL.

    Well he's not gonna get one with the Nets LOL. He needs to retire and get a commentating job. He's a pretty good speaker. I saw Tim Hardaway at the Heat game last night. I didn't know he had a commentating job for the Heat. He's a terrible speaker LOL. Ya'll remember when he had a NBA commentating job for a minute on ESPN? I couldn't stop laughing when he would speak LOL.

    when do I diss older players? Stackhouse is a legend and one of the best assets on the Nets. He was lighting it up from downtown in a recent game.

    Default D'Wade Kicks Ramon Sessions In The Nuts



    Wade wasn't happy with the foul on him by Charlotte's Ramon Sessions, early in the fourth quarter of a then-close game the Heat would soon run away with. A little off-balance kick with plausible deniability, and Sessions was steamed:
    "I thought he did it on purpose, and it wasn't called," said Sessions.
    This is maybe what they're talking about when they say the Heat get star treatment. Sessions fouls Wade. Wade knees him in the junk. Sessions takes exception. Sessions gets called for a second foul.

    Deron Williams looks pretty overpaid right now for the Nets.

    -Dominique Wilkins remembers drowned teammate Dan Roundfield in surprising New York Times piece


    In early August, former NBA forward Dan Roundfield tragically died at the age of 59 while attempting (and succeeding) to help his wife Bernie through rough water in Aruba. In 11 seasons, Roundfield made three All-Stars (consecutively from 1980 through 1982 with the Atlanta Hawks), but his death was not given a great deal of media coverage beyond wire stories and brief notes.

    That was an oversight by many, including those of us at BDL. After Roundfield's death, many teammates and acquaintances spoke of the effect he had on their careers and lives as both an athlete and friend. One of those players was Hawks great Dominique Wilkins, who credits Roundfield with teaching him "how to be a professional" when he first entered the league in 1982.

    This week, Wilkins went the extra mile to make sure that people take note of Roundfield's effect on those he encountered during his life. In a feature called "The Lives They Loved," The New York Times invited readers to submit photographs and brief remembrances of loved ones who died in 2012. Wilkins, unprompted, sent in a photo and wrote a paragraph about Roundfield (via Deadspin):

    This image captures one of the great NBA players of the last 35 years, Dan Roundfield. When one looks at this image, they instinctively think of Dan the Atlanta Hawks player, the tenacious defender and the NBA All-Star. He was certainly all of those things, but for those of us who knew him, we look at this image and think of Dan the selfless leader, the husband, the father and the fearless teammate and friend. Dan lost his life this year at the age of 59 saving his wife of 37 years from drowning on the beaches of Aruba while on a family vacation. In his last moments, as he himself was fighting for his life, Dan fearlessly lived and died for his family, which is all he ever really wanted. So yes, Dan Roundfield was a tremendous athlete who elevated basketball in the city of Atlanta, but what is even more tremendous is the imprint he made on all of us, his teammates, and on the lives of his wife, his two sons and his grandchildren.

    It's a touching note full of feeling and a fine way to remember a player and man whose death might not have gotten the attention it deserved. Frankly, the same could be said of many of the pieces in this NYT feature. I recommend reading several, at random.

    Wilkins's words also help serve as a reminder that the NBA is a community full of real people, not just athletes who perform for our pleasure. Sometimes, as in the case of Roundfield, they're more noble than we could ever expect.

    Default Wade suspended 1 game for groin kick



    Miami Heat's response:
    While we accept the decision of the NBA regarding Dwyane Wade, we do not agree with it. In his 10 years in the league, Dwyane has never been suspended, and has been an exemplary player and positive influence to his teammates and fans and we have been honored to have him as part of the Miami HEAT family. Unfortunately, he is the type of player, along with other players on our roster, that defenses take privileges with. We stand with Dwyane and support him in this situation and have made our feelings known to the league office.

    Maybe D-Wade thinks since his nickname is flash he can do those things so quick that no one will ever see it thus he will always get away with it!!!!
