NO that is not true. Several posts stated JC and an incrediable game. I watched the game and JC had a great 1st half and an awful 2nd half and of course that was followed with the usual we didn't watch the same game.

Sometimes i think people on this broad are angry and Krause and the othter parts of management (for which i think they have very good cause) but instead of just expressing their anger they use JC as a person to take a run at management.

Yo, if you are pissed at Krause, paxson, ect go after them they are fair game. But in many ways putting all these expectations on JC is unfair to, yes that right, JC. He is having a hard time finding his place in the NBA, what position he plays, how to improve his game, ect. Stop with all these how great JC will be and let the poor guy a break and stop putting all this pressure on him to be some all star.

Geez. Please stop crying (most of you). What is wrong with me voicing my opinion and perspective about an ex-Bull. Why does it bother you so much? Maybe because there's a bit of truth to it? If you don't want to hear/read another person's opinion, you're in the wrong place. The last time I checked this was a free-speech country and this is a public forum.

And I expect about four thread on Jamal's horrible game from you in between one of the game he shoot the light out.

It's only fair, right? If you keep your mouth closed every time Jamal had awful night, then I wonder what your agenda is for starting this thread in the first place.

So, let's get this straight. It's ok for you to use your right to free speech to post the Jamal threads, but you complain about others using their own right to free speech to complain about it? Having the right to free speech doesn't mean you're exempt from any backlash and ridicule. After all, nobody's stopping you from posting. They're just telling you how they feel about it. There's nothing wrong with you voicing your opinion, just like there's nothing wrong with others coming right back and voicing theirs. Period. It works both ways, man.

Why complain about something that you don't even have to bother reading if you don't want to? Doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to me. If your a Crawford hater just pass on by and leave it to some other folks! Sheesh!:upset:

This is 100% true. Say something bad about any of the above mentioned people and prepare for the onslaught.
__________________
NBA CHAMP- Phoenix.

Its their year. If Amare comes back (a big if) then they will have it all.

NBA FINALS- Phoenix 4-2 Chicago (Since Tmac has gotten to Houston, I always take them, but not this year)

Yes, the Bulls are in the finals. They beat the Cavs in the eastern finals in 7 games. Might be the Bulls best chance before Lebron goes all Jordan on us. But with Detroit weaker, and Miami a year older, this leaves Chicago

MVP-Lebron James

I just cant even think of a guy who could be close. Bosh and Yao are 2 and 3.

Most Improved- I dont know.

It will come from the following 5 players. Mickael Pietrus, who should be perfect under Nellies weird system. Darko Millicic, really impressive in Orlando last year. Tyson Chandler, Just a feeling, might have that year we have been looking for. JR Smith. The only thing I didnt think Pax needed to do this summer. This guy has a real shot at stardom. Leandro Barbosa

Rookie of the Year. Mickael Gelabale Seattle. This kid is NBA ready, can play 2 spots, though spots that Seattle has good players and a real motor. Will beat out Chicago Bull Tyrus Thomas (2nd), Rudy Gay and Seattle teammate Mouhamed Sene.

Defensive Player of the Year. Mouhamed Sene. Reach, athleticism and desire means he will be the first rookie to win this award. Might have a problem with the fouls early this year, but his ability to cover ground and his length mean something special on the way.

6th man of the year. Leandro Barbosa. Second team all defense and scores in the mid digits. Could be the best point guard (if you can call him that) from his draft class, yes Hinrich and Ford, that includes you, if Nash wasnt the MVP.

Surprise Team
West-Seattle. They have two outstanding rookies and 2 more young bigs. I believe Petro and Sene make a great upfront combo, Swift will be dealt for the other things and Gelabale will be special.

East- Toronto. Bargnani will help, but Bosh will be the MVP runner up to Lebron. Orlando a close #2

Disappointing Team
East- Miami- Shaq is just getting older and Wade can only carry the team so far. They were pretty flawed last year and won the individual brilliance of Wade and Shaq. Take one out of the equation and they might not be the best team in Florida

West- LA Lakers. Unless Andrew Bynum makes the next big step this team might not make the playoffs. Kobe was hurt all summer and I just think they played over their head. I wasnt blown away by their offseason. LA Clippers are #2 here.

Executive of the Year. John Paxson. Just a super offseason. Gets Ben Wallace, which no one thought he could do. Drafts a guy in Tyrus Thomas who is outstanding and promising rookie Thabo Sefolosha. Gets rid of Chandlers contract. Only mistake was giving JR Smith away.

2007 Draft- Oden is the guy but Thabeet will make it far closer than most thought was possible.

Coach of the year. Don Nelson. GS goes back to the playoffs for the first time in about a century (or since he was the coach). Sure they make it as a 7th seed but thats good enough for him to get the award.

Most likely big name to be dealt. Chris Webber, Rashard Lewis, Kenyon Martin, Richard Jefferson/Vince Carter, Jason Kidd, Emeka Okafor, Lamar Odom, Jermaine Oneal.

Superbowl- Bears this year
SI Sports Man of the Year 2007- The city of Chicago
Champs League Final Chelsea vs Arsenal. Arsenal are the winners.

And one final prediction. Jay Williams, whom I predicted a few years ago would play in the NBA again (too alot of ridicule, Songcycle, are you reading that?) will be good enough, along with Marcus Williams, that the Jason Kidd trade rumors will pick up some steam.

Ace, why are you responding to me? Seriously, why bother? You're trying to put out a fire that wasn't burning in the first place. Chill out.

I wasn't complaining about anything. I'm responding to Michael because he's using the "free speech" argument inaccurately. It's wrong and I'm calling him out on it. It's as simple as that. Do you also not understand free speech? Do I have to spell it out for you slowly? Let me know. I'd be glad to help out. I'm merely posting my opinion. Why is that such a big deal to you? Sheesh yourself, quite frankly.

Also, to even insinuate I'm a Jamal hater, if that's what you were doing, is ridiculous. I've been a huge Jamal fan since day one and was not happy when he was traded. Personally, I've moved on, but that's not even the point. I can't believe I have to waste my time explaining myself to you.

Jamal was 3-9 with 3 assists negated by 3 turnovers on his way to 11 points in the largest margin of defeat in a home opener in New York Knicks team history.

107-73

GB you are a clever one!!

The Garden started booing Saturday night when the Knicks fell behind 20 points to the Celtics in the second quarter, and 25 in the third and their worst, 34 points, in the fourth period of the 107-73 obliteration. Paris Hilton had just plopped down beside Howard Stern on celebrity row, and the boos thundered down on the Knicks. "I would've booed," Stephon Marbury said. "We deserved to be booed."


The Garden had no choice but to stand and boo louder and louder, because the Knicks never made a stop, never made a run and most disturbingly of all, never made a stand on opening night at the Garden. The curtain was raised, and the Knicks laid down. "I thought my teammates played hard," Jamal Crawford said.


If getting beat back on defense, resisting trying to take charges on driving Celtics and getting manhandled on the boards is playing hard, Isiah and Wilkens have a long way to go trying to transform this soft, mentally weak roster.

i am not so secretly loving this i have to admit.
