its going to be a good game but i think that A.I. is getting over the hill...
hey rob did you see they retired chris webbers jersey at the arco arena?
Yeah, I did.....to be totally honest...the most I've ever loved a team, in any sport that I can think of was the Sacramento Kings with Webber, Bibby, Jackson, Divac, and the rest. I loved that team! When the Lakers ruined their season on Robert Horry's last second shot I was really bummed for a while.
I love sports, but I don't think I've loved any team more than that Kings team. I follow "players" not teams....I was a Webber fan.
Now I'm a LeBron James Fan, Nash - Stoudemire and Suns fan, Blazers fan and I have other players and teams I follow and support.
I saw Webber has his jersey retired....the KIngs lost that night. I hope they get their team going again...I don't really like any of the current players so I am not attached to them at the moment. I love the Cavs, Suns, and I cheer for the Blazers and Magic.
I look forward to the game.
An interesting question...............who do you think is the "face of the NBA?"
I heard it on sports radio....they were talking about whether it is James, Bryant....and the fact that it is NOT Duncan, though he has a better resume than anyone in basketball (championships, MVPs, finals MVPs, all defensive teams, all NBA teams, etc.).
I'd like to think that it is James....but they said it has to be a larger market guy like Kobe.....then they talked about who it is in baseball now that it isn't Bonds and Jeter was the only name that came to mind for them.
Who do you think is the Face of the NBA and why?
the face of the nba really depends on what kinda cultural background your from.
Yao Ming is definitely the face of asain basketball where as dirk/parker/gasol seem to the be faces of europe.
lebron and kobe are both great players but the face of north american nba at the moment seems to be more of a group pic that is the 2008 gold medal team.
if i had to pick i would say lebron, however if he doesnt start winning championships that whole king title is going to be kinda useless.
a friend gave me a copy of that game 7 when horry sunk the kings. i was stoked watching it untill i realised that it was game 7 and c-webb never made finals. IMO the kings would have got a ring in 5 games, 6 games tops against the teams that the lakers beat. but kobe and shaq were really the pinnacle, it still is semi-unbeleivable that the lakers could lose with malone and payton.
my fav thing about the kings was how they had keon clarke and brad miller over the years with turkoglu and christie and jackson...i always play the kings on the 02 dated nba games.
hey rob what did you think about david robinson?
the team is so stacked all they have to do is stick together and get some experience and they wil be sweet, im keen to see how greg oden develops too
