Someone should tell Dupree to be carefull and not burn and bridges.

He's been playing well. But the guy he's dissing probably has more clout within the franchise. Could be talking himself off the team. The last thing Pax needs is some NBDL player coming to the team and causing problems...ya know.

But I'm glad Dupree is so excited.

That quote doesn't sound like he's talking only about Bulls players. He may be talking about the state of the NBA in general.

Remember - he did play in Miami so he saw about as small a crowd as you can possibly see.

No, he wasn't. I just thought it was a really telling statement that also shines a light on his teammates (some of them).

Good for him.
Roger that.

When I read the article this morning, I was left w/ the idea that Dupree really appreciated being in the league. I didn't read it as a slam on teammates.

Didn't Eddy Curry JUST make a statement about fans at the UC booing?

And then for Dupree to have a comment talking about 'certain' players complaining about 'certain' arenas...(what other players is Dupree around?)...I don't know. Surely I'm not the only one who can put 2 and 2 together?

C'mon Bulls board.

What is probably being meant as a 'feelgood' story is being interpreted by our local McCarthyists as a slam on Eddy Curry. OMFG. This is Elliott freaking Harris writing the article.

<i>The biggest difference between the NBDL and NBA?

"Lot more glitz and glamor,'' Dupree said. "Lot more perks.''

Such as?

"Hotels,'' he said. "In the NBDL we were staying in the Holiday Inns with no elevators. Get to Miami, we're in the Four Seasons. We get no per diem or money on the road in the NBDL. You get to play in front of thousands of people in beautiful arenas. Down there, you play in front of 25 or 30 people.''

Nothing like a couple of games at the United Center.

"It's no problem getting up for crowds like this,'' Dupree said. "A lot of guys complain about certain arenas and certain teams' crowds. Let them go to the NBDL to see what crowd support is all about.'' </i>

Let's not insinuate.

The direct quote is not certain players. He says A lot of guys complain about certain arenas and certain teams' crowds.

'A lot of guys' different from 'certain players'

Thats quite an insult, especially when I admitted elsewhere in-thread that it wasn't directed at the Bulls per-say.

So if there's nothing here, there's nothing here. Why does the title of this thread say "Dupree lays the smackdown on uninterested Bulls players" if it should really say "Ronald Dupree: Enjoying the NBA life (NBDL sucks)."

I actually wasn't directing this at you GB. I used the McCarthyist reference as hyperbole. Apologies if I offended you my man!

What do you mean "So what"?

You don't think it would be at all important to note if one player was slamming another player through the media?(Which if you read down further you'd see that we already covered that.)

Your indignation was poorly timed and misplaced.
Step off the high horse, take a deep breath, and be peacefull.
God is love dude. God is love.

I think you are the only one who thinks he was slamming another player.

It seems like he's just making genralizations.
