    Not gonna happen. Griz are soft as fuck for letting the soft as fuck Clippers win 2 at home on them. I was expecting a good series too but I didn't think they'd win the first 2. Griz needed 1. And that was 2nite. Chokin ass niggas.

    And fuck the Bulls. I bet Bulls fans are feeling mighty fucking happy tonight. "WERE STAYING ALIVE!!!" Lol the Nets fooled the shit outta me the other night. They still gonna win the series even if the pesky fucking Bulls make them. The Bulls biggest claim to fame the last 10 years is being pesky. lol

    Bulls would probably be the number one seed if Rose was healthy.

    Who is that black guy in the UNLV jersey standing next to the white guy coach? Is that Reggie Theus? I know he played for UNLV. I heard about Russell Westbrook being injured and that sucks because i picked them to be in the finals. Oh well i guess they're gonna have to go with Derek Fisher and Jermaine Jackson hahahahahahahahahahaha. I don't know how Marc Gasol won defensive player of the year. Didn't Serge Ibaka lead the league in blocks? If he did, he should've won the award. I see the Cavs got Mike Brown again to coach. I think he can do the job but it's gonna be tough to see how he can win without Lebron. Knicks, Spurs, Miami are about to sweep.

    I'm thinking Spurs and the Heat in the finals. I'm a Bulls fan, but I don't think they can take the Heat in the playoffs. Especially with an injured Noah and minus Rose. I'd love to see the Knicks take out Miami, but I don't think that'll happen.

    Charles, weren't you talking trash about Mike Brown before? lol That's Reggie Theus and the legend Jerry Tarkanian. Marc Gasol deserved the award.

    The Nets aren't coming back now. They had a chance to even up the series, but they blew that lead.

    “I don’t even have money for a cheeseburger,” -Allen Iverson via Washington Post.

    Former NBA superstar is so downfall right now. That's sad to hear. He was once one of the highest paid athletes in the NBA. He earned more than $150 million througout his NBA career. He was also considered as 1 of Kobe Bryant's rivals when it comes to skills in basketball. Read more:

    Allen Iverson Admits To His Wife That He Couldn’t Afford A Cheeseburger

    Allen Iverson is in bad shape. Not, bad meaning “good”, but “bad” meaning bad. According to a new piece in the Washington Post the iconic NBA baller “has hit rock bottom” and there are many people who love him, and are concerned about him.

    Via Washington Post

    Three years after Iverson’s last NBA game, the spotlight has shifted from his play to his flaws. His refusal back then to play by society’s rules was seen as an independent player’s quirks, part of the character and the brand, same as his cornrows and tattoos.

    Practicing with hangovers added to the legend. Skipping team functions and refusing to obey the league’s dress code was a man who wouldn’t be held down. And embarrassing defenders on the way to the basket, in the NBA and before that at Georgetown, was a nightly statement by the 6-foot, 165-pound guard: If a man, no matter his size, is determined enough, he can get the better of giants.

    But Iverson isn’t a basketball player anymore. This is something most everyone but Iverson has accepted, and for years a question worried those closest to him: What happens when the most important part of a man’s identity, the beam supporting the other unstable matter, is no longer there?

    For the past three years, as Iverson chased an NBA comeback, his marriage fell apart and much of his fortune – he earned more than $150 million in salary alone during his career – dissolved. Now, those who once ignored past signals have recognized that basketball may have been the only thing holding Iverson’s life together.

    “He has hit rock bottom, and he just hasn’t accepted it yet,” says former Philadelphia teammate Roshown McLeod.

    As sad as that sounds, nothing can compare to the scene described during Iverson’s divorce trial in 2012.

    Iverson stood during a divorce proceeding in Atlanta in 2012 and pulled out his pants pockets. “I don’t even have money for a cheeseburger,” he shouted toward his estranged wife, Tawanna, who then handed him $61.

    To make matters worse, alcholism has been said to be a major contributor to A.I.’s spiraling struggle.

    Tawanna testified that during a 2009 family vacation in Orlando, Iverson spent evenings with a friend while his family made plans without him. On the day they were to fly home, Iverson nursed a hangover in a van, lying on the floor with a foot draped on the seat. While their children saw a movie, Tawanna sat for hours with her husband, afraid if he was left alone the driver would take photographs.

    Hopefully someone can reach out to Allen to help him get his life together. Despite how bad his situation is, there is a silver lining in Iverson’s playbook.

    Basketball was Iverson’s sanctuary, and he signed huge contracts: a six-year deal in 1999 worth $70.9 million and, four years later, a new agreement worth $76.7 million. Reebok signed him to a huge endorsement deal, including a deferred trust worth more than $30 million, a lump sum he can’t touch until he turns 55.

    It’s a LONG time to wait, but if the braided-baller can hold on just 18 more years, there just might be some hope.

    As bad as many people feel for A.I. it appears that all his wounds are self-inflicted. Iverson’s ignorance, lack of responsibility, and a general I-don’t-give-a-fawk demeanor makes it hard to feel too bad for him. That said, Iverson was one of the greatest basketball players that most of us have ever seen grace the court, it’s a shame that won’t be the way we remember him.
    bring back begongo!!

    It's sad to hear about A.I; hopefully he can get his life back together. The problem with players (not only in the NBA, but pretty much all sports) is you're giving millions of dollars to people that never had that kind of money, and really they need to do something to help educate people on how to deal with all the sudden having that much money.

    He could have been playing the last couple years in the NBA if he would realize that he's not in his prime anymore, is not going to be the star of the team, and to cut back on his attitude.

    Very true, but everyone made excuses for him for the entire early part of his career that he thought he could get away with it. His skills had diminished to the point where he couldn't go out and score 40 points a game.
