I read it. I missed your formula for it though. Can you post the forumla again? It's part of your theory correct?

He didn't say that, he said in 3 years Paul will be done like Kobe supposedly is now (which he later went back on).

Re: No League for Old Men

For the record Chris Paul was at Wake Forest for 2 years, however he was slightly younger than most players who entered the league with two years of college experience. I think he was still 19 for a month or so after his college career ended. When he was drafted the Hawks took Marvin Williams 2nd and everyone said Williams had all sorts of potential. However he was a couple of months younger than Paul and had been a small factor in a conference that Paul had dominated.

When Paul came into the NBA scouts were thinking rather similarly to this nonsense, he was not tall enough and did not have elite athleticism, wasn't jumping over people and doing triple somersaults over 7 footers...and you'd be able to find a lot of strong posters saying that he was not going to be a good NBA player because of that. So since Paul was never supposed to be a great NBA player it's not surprising that people want to claim he won't be one in the future.

I never went back on that. Kobe is done (as a superstar). He's not a top 5 player or a top 5 passer like Ricky Rubio.

Now, this is just my opinion here, so bear with me, but I would have thought 4th in league scoring would show a player isn't done. But that's just me.

I guess with 7 less point per game and worse in every statistic, Wade is more done then Kobe.

You went back on Paul no longer being a factor in 3 years, not Kobe.

Kobe and gasol are done. Lakers shouldn't win 36 games right? Especially when they face Rubio 3 times.

I'll say he's done and I'll say he's finished (as a superstar). Fire up your thesaurus and I'll plug in some more.

I said Paul won't be a superstar in 3 years. I picked the Lakers to finish 4th in the West.

Paul will still be younger than the last 4 finals MVPs in 3 years. You responded by saying "well he'll still win you a lot of games." which means this thread is a waste of time.

How are the lakers going to finish 4th when their top two players are done and the third is an inferior center to deandre Jordan? Must be Metta World Peace.

I'm sorry, but nowhere did it say "as a superstar". If I fire up my thesarus as you've asked me to, are you going to argue with it and add brackets like (as a superstar) like you're doing with us?

This is priceless.

Because players past their prime statistically decline every year? If he's old he's going to start declining. It matters to the Clippers who have to make trades to build a contender and properly evaluate their team.

The Pistons won a championship without any superstars. You guys are good enough for a 2nd round exit, don't worry.

You do understand that you giving anyone advice on their own team at this point is probably the most laughable thing I've seen in days right?

Re: No League for Old Men

The worst part of all of this is waiting the 3 years to bump this thread only to see this post:

Adding ( and ) has really made Adam the greatest poster on the site.

What's more likely, that I was saying he was done as a basketball player or that he was done as a superstar. The latter was obviously implied. It's so obvious that it need not even be stated. Except people like you need to have the obvious stated. I think the average literacy rate on this board is declining. I'll do a study and come up with a formula.
