    yea, but alotta dudes can score. He takes too many shots, and too many bad shots, and therefore wastes alot of possessions.
    Look eye, always look eye.

    Iverson will always have high numbers, but his teammates wont. Rips numbers have gone down since AI came. then look at how Billups has raised the game of nearly every Nugget.

    Sorry to hear about Cuttino Mobley having to retire. He would have been the Knicks starting SG:


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    New York Knicks guard Cuttino Mobley retired from the NBA on Thursday because of heart disease that he said has gotten worse.

    Mobley said doctors told him he faced significant risks if he kept playing. The 11-year veteran said by walking away now, he could live a long life.

    Mobley announced his decision at a press conference at the Knicks’ training center, where he confirmed he has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The condition causes the heart muscle to thicken, making it harder to pump blood, and the 33-year-old Mobley said he had no choice but to end his career.

    “The specialists I’ve seen made it clear that my heart condition has gotten worse and I couldn’t continue to play professional basketball without putting my health and life in serious danger,” Mobley said. “As much as I want to keep playing in the NBA, I have no choice but to follow the advice of my doctors and step away from the league.”

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in people under 30 years old and was linked to the deaths of former Boston Celtics forward Reggie Lewis and Loyola Marymount star Hank Gathers.

    The Knicks acquired Mobley last month from the Los Angeles Clippers—a trade that may ultimately have saved his life. An EKG during his physical showed an irregularity with the heart, which Mobley already knew existed. The Knicks decided to perform an MRI exam, which revealed the more serious condition that previously had gone undetected.

    Mobley then saw four specialists around the country, who performed additional tests and provided him literature about the disease that convinced him to stop playing.

    “The doctors said to not chance it and I feel as though they’re right, having an 8-year old son, having a long life ahead of me, it’s the smart thing,” Mobley said. “It’s a tough thing to swallow, but things in life happen, but you have to keep going.”

    Mobley averaged 16.0 points in 11 seasons with Houston, Orlando, Sacramento and the Clippers. He was expected to become the Knicks’ starting shooting guard after the Nov. 21 trade.

    The Knicks could have voided the deal because of the health concerns, but waived the physical requirement because the trade allowed them to move Zach Randolph’s contract, freeing salary cap space for the summer of 2010.

    “I thought this would be the perfect trade with him in it, but I would never put a player out there that’s at the risk that he would be at,” Knicks president Donnie Walsh said.

    “None of this is as important as somebody’s life. None of it. Period,” Walsh said. “So I’m glad that we had a doctor that put him through tests that showed it, because the risk was there.”

    Walsh said he wasn’t sure yet what options the Knicks had to fill the vacant roster spot and would begin researching it Friday.

    Mobley said he’d thought about the scene of Gathers collapsing on the court during a game. Mobley said it factored into his decision.

    “Say if you were to play, the worry, the worrisome of people watching you, if you were to fall, or it’s just an elbow or just an ankle, that’s scary. And then every single day just being scared for you, I think that’s a selfish thing, also,” he said. “Even though you love something so much, and I am in love with basketball, but sometimes you have to get a divorce.”

    NickyTooch you need to get Lebron's dick outta your mouth because the Cavs aren't that good and when the playoffs come, you'll find out. Their asses are gonna get eliminated early like they always do. Lebron is a great player but his teammates ain't shit besides Maurice and Zydrunas. Anderson Varaejo is a terrible defender because all he does is flop when a player runs into him instead of trying to block the shot or steal the ball. He's a good rebounder and that's it. I'm surprised he's been scoring a lot lately. The Cavs have been playing a lot of weak teams and that's why they've been winning. I'm gonna see what they're gonna do when they go on their westcoast trip and play against some good westcoast teams. Their new uniforms are ugly.

    LOL@Lebron saying a few nights ago when the Cavs played Philly that he only listens to Jay-Z in his ipod hahahahahahahahahahahaha. I know him and Jay-Z are friends but he doesn't have to be on Jay-Z's dick and act like there aren't any other rappers he can listen to.

    The Sixers fired Maurice Cheeks. I think sometimes teams are a little too quick to fire coaches.

    Varejao is too underrated. Hes got mad energy . I went from thinking he was the biggest pile of shit ever to make it in the NBA to thinking he is actually holding the team together in the space of 1 game.

    Maybe Darius Miles can turn the Grizzlies franchise around.

    D-Wade is up to dunking on one dude a game now. He dunked on Josh Smith last night but the Heat still got blown out. It's all good baby we're growing.

    And no Check 2, just no.

    Yeah except for the 2nd half of last night's game. A rare bad second half by Wade. Shouldn't happen much this season.

    Hawks beat the Cavs! Pistons almost let a huge lead slip to the Bobcats. Mavs almost lose to the Thunder. Knicks blowing out the Kings. And my Magic beat the Jazz without Dwight Howard [Pietrus is still out too].
