In response to Reply # 4


  

          

Until folks recognize KG/Bron's greatness over Dirk glorified rental chip then I will return the hate to the Ayran race well at least until he erases the label of being the only Final MVP to never win a series or even a post-season game right after winning a chip. He's going to make the post-season by default (major injuries to PHX/MEM/Denver) even after being a leader of a team that has been choking away 4th quarter leads.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

LMAO @ you trying to bring up the sweep of the Lakers are anything meaningful......they were dead from the start. Although it did prove my theory that Bean ain't shyt w/o prime Shaq/Pau......so I appreciated being vindicated.

-Bron has himself said he wasn't himself in 2011 & anyone w/ two unbiased eyes could have seen it......dude was Milk Carton status. Muphuckin' JJ Barea outplayed Bron in the 4th quarter.

-Wade was the best all-around/most consistent player in the Finals

-Dirk didn't carry the team in the Finals......he shot 40% while playing his customary defense. JET closed out the series along w/ Barea while Matrix/Tyson/Kidd held it down defensively & were leaders of the team. Dirk just had an okay finals ....if you want to make a big deal out of that then go ahead b/c we all know Dirk is graded on a curve.

Dirk shot 42%FG/54%TS putting up his customary playoffs 26 & 10, played solid team defense, made the game-winning shot in game 2, closed out the win in game 4 & was the best player on the court in game 5. He carried the team in the Finals and all your crying about it doesn't change that fact.

LOL @ "we all know" when you're the only one saying that dumb shit. The only curve here is you giving Dirk all the blame when they lost and none of the credit when they won.

Dude wanted no blame so he let Wade do the work & wanted to play the wing-man role from the go.


>Dirk shot 42%FG/54%TS putting up his customary playoffs 26 &
>10
You have Roy Hibbert bossing single coverage against RuPaul on greater than 40% shooting. Besides anyone who's 7ft tall & DOESN'T have to CHALLENGE SHOTS can get 10 rebounds by hanging around the paint.

>played solid team defense
lets bring out the bell curve...Marc Cuban is rolling over in his grave

>made the game-winning shot in
>game 2,
The game Wade dominated on both ends.

>closed out the win in game 4
sure, that was more so the a defensive stance than Dirk or anyone else on the Mavs taking over offensively. Of course Bron was no where to be found.

> was the best player on
>the court in game 5.
That was the game where the Barea/JET duo first made it appearance in the 2nd half & carried it over to game 6...closing out both games.

>He carried the team in the Finals
He averaged empty 26 pts in the finals that doesn't include play-making/defense. That series was won on defense & Bron being Milk Carton status. As far as Finals MVP go based on the past 20 years: Carrying a team is Hakeem in 94/95; Shaq in 2000; Tim in 2003, Wade 2006.....then there is dominating series (Bean 2009, Shaq 2001-2)....then there is playing well in series (Pierce/Billups/Dirk/Top5). We all know what Cheese did so no need to mention.


>LOL @ "we all know" when you're the only one saying that dumb
>shit. The only curve here is you giving Dirk all the blame
>when they lost and none of the credit when they won.

I gave him credit for playing his role as the designated hitter while hitting for average but he wasn't throwing the pitch, catching, fielding nor tearing it up at the box like you guys make it seem like. That DOESN'T qualify for CARRYING THE TEAM..

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

NOPE bron was front-running through game 1 & first 3 quarters of game 2 until Dirk & JET punched him in the mouth and he took his ball and went home.


>>Dirk shot 42%FG/54%TS putting up his customary playoffs 26 &
>>10
>You have Roy Hibbert bossing single coverage against RuPaul on

54% TS, and 42% FG is same as Duncan in 2003 & Jordan in 1996 and better than Kobe in 2010.


Besides anyone who's 7ft tall &
>DOESN'T have to CHALLENGE SHOTS can get 10 rebounds by hanging

... but they don't, and Dirk does.

... except down the stretch when it mattered and Dirk took over the game.


>He averaged empty 26 pts in the finals that doesn't include

taking over games in crunchtime and making game-winning shots is empty pts? why you trying to lie about shit that everybody saw with their own two eyes?

He's not as good as those guys and nobody ever said he was.

-lol.....Bean & MJ were terrible in 2010 & 1996 as far as shooting from the field...Bean/MJ detractors always bring up 2010/1996 to tarnish their careers but alas they have more than ONE chip & none of them happen to be rental.
-Tim was drawing a double teams every time he touched the ball & was shooting over Deke plus Tim was a mediocre FT shooter at that time & never shoots 3s which greatly skews the TS%.

He was able to do so b/c his teammates showed up while Wade's teammate folded.

My point is that Dirk is a DH who wasn't exactly tearing it up at the plate. Nothing about the team being built around a DH hitting "for power" or "for average".

>LOL - your idiotic analogy

>well done.
I'm not sure what's not to understand about the analogy of Dirk being a DH. I used the term "for average" in bball terms as in he shot average (I can see where that can be confusing but still.....)

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

i dont think anyone would elevate dirk above bron and generally kg is considered the better player, too. this seems like bitching for the sake of it.

He destroyed burnt out Pau & wet-behind the ears Ibaka but he was average in the Finals (Wade was the best player).

Marion/Kidd/Chandler/Stevenson were the once holding it down defensively & if you look at it they won the chip w/ their defense & timely shots (JET/Dirk). (They almost lost to PDX in the 1st Rd w/ a gimpy Brandon Roy)

Fuck Dirk. I never liked him and still don't. He is an all-time great scorer though.

FILF, I fail to understand how you somehow have left KG off your list of Duncan's nemeses who must be reviled. KG is at that list for me. Dirk is better than or equal to KG, at least he is not scared to take a crunchtime shot, even if it will be a brick.

He played most of his career w/ muphukin' Wally as his side kick who happens be to nothing more than Kyle Korver w/ a post-up game. Plus, his game wasn't conducive to being a crunch time scorer. He was basically 7ft version of Bron who did much more than just score. On the other hand Dirk was paid to simply score just like Hibbert is paid to man the paint......& he failed miserably on the grandest of stages on multiple occasion.

KG showed everyone what he was capable when surrounded by decent side kicks in 2004 & yet again in 2008. Dirk played w/ a bunch on all-stars or boarder-line all-stars throughout his career dude has no excuses.

Ohhhh, how could have I discounted Wally's handles & ability to create shots for himself. I will take Ryan Anderson over Wally 7 days of the week.

>I guess Spree, Cassell,
>Smith, don't count?
I did mention 2004....the year KG took down C-Webb & the mighty Kings. Not to mention Spree/Cassell were on the wrong side of 30 at that time & Cassell was playing injured the whole post-season.

>Garnett got swept by Dirk's Mavs. How you gonna get swept?
KG was playing w/ Sam muphuckin' Mitchell while Dirk had Finley/Nash/Van Exel...besides didn't Bean get swept by Dirk.

>Plus, his game wasn't conducive to being a

uhhhhhh...folks are going goo-goo ga-ga over Joakim, when KG already did everything Noah is doing right now & while averaging 20+PPG not just one year but throughout his prime.

Based on that logic then Billups is better than KG.

>>KG showed everyone what he was capable when surrounded by

>
>Garnett was one of the sidekicks when he won it all.
It's a team game; dude manned up on defense & played selfless on offense. It wasn't like Pierce/Ray were CONSISTENT offensively throughout the 2008 post-season. Dirk also shot 40% in the Finals & won Finals MVP by default although he was outplayed by Wade & JET was the one the closed out the series.


>I'm not making excuses for Dirk, I can't stand him. KG is just
>a worse person and basketball player.
KG never talked shit to anyone through the social media unlike today's so called superstars, he talked smack ON THE COURT & backed it up....it ain't like he was muphukin' Kendrick Perkins. Everyone that played w/ KG has said he was a great teammate (unlike Bean & em) it's not his job to baby the opponent.

I don't see folks complaining about Joakim talking constant smack on the court. GP did it, Reggie did it......a bunch of hall-of-famers did it.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

You are the one saying KG is all that, not me. If he was that much better, he wouldn't have gotten swept by a Mavs team that was good but certainly not great.

No one is calling Noah the taller version of Lebron. No one ever will, no matter how much they appreciate his game. So, this is irrelevant. You are trying to elevate Garnett's bitchass to a level he does not belong in. He is about at worst, an intense and motivated Rasheed Wallace and at best, about as good as Dirk.

He did his job. And his job description was apt for his abilities. Which were just as limited as Dirk's, in a different way.

Dirk also shot

Yeah and lots of people don't care for those dudes. Reggie also had a sense of humor and theater and Noah is just being histrionic. Garnett's whole thing is faked intensity and overdramatic posing for cameras. Studio Thuggin' gets no love.

What don't you tell how Wally's career turned out once he left Minny? Mike Miller ended up having a better career than Wally's bum ass.

I said KG is better than Dirk.....I never said KG was Kareem Dirk was Kwame Brown or something of that nature.


>

Yeah, because his offensive game is lacking unlike KG.

> You are trying to elevate Garnett's

Is that a compliment or an insult. A motivated Sheed was going mano-a-mano against Timmay & winning some of those battles.


>Luckily there are other things involved, but to say that
>counts for nothing would be preposterous.
Yeah such as playing defense


>He did his job. And his job description was apt for his

KG didn't have any limitation as far as the basic are concerned.

>I hate Dirk and can admit he blazed that postseason. Anyone
>with eyes saw it.
I'm specifically talking about the Finals...otherwise he ended MVPau's career in 2011 just like KG ended Sheed's career in 2008.


>HE backed up what, exactly? Talking shit about Duncans dead
>moms and then losing like always?
He did his part (he matched Timmay bucket for bucket) but his teammate (i.e Sam Mitchell) were MIA

>Yeah and lots of people don't care for those dudes. Reggie

Condolences that KG didn't stand up for your father during the contract negotiation so your father could feed you Mr. Spreewell Jr.

KG was a more rounded player than Dirk but Dirk's offensive singularity and the fact that he could win as a first option, makes him slightly better IMO.

You think KG is a much better player than Dirk, for the array of both legitimate and preposterous reasons you have given.

Dude rented a chip when the Western conference was undergoing a change of guards & more importantly when Bron was Missing In Action....that was it.....Dirk lead team are infamous for collapsing under pressure not winning. Again all I'm asking in one playoff run in to validated the 2011 chip. But yet it's been 3 years & dude still hasn't won a single post-season game let alone a series which I believe is an accomplishment all by itself.

>You think KG is a much better player than Dirk, for the array

I need cats to acknowledge KG is a better player than Dirk.
-Just an equally EFFICIENT scorer as Dirk (Dirk is a better shooter)
-Better Leader
-Better defender
-Makes teammates better (just ask Wally/Troy Hudson/Perk... et al)
-Has more intangibles
-Never let Matt Barnes check him in the post

KG won DOPY & was a perennial while Dirk is being called out by his owner about "taking a nap on defense" (http://www.star-telegram.com/2014/03/17/5657430/mavericks-notes-mark-cuban-calls.html)

And you're telling despite what's listed above Dirk shooting 40% in the Finals while Terry closed out the series against a Heat team that was led by Milk Carton status Bron makes Dirk a better player. Not to mention his history of choking while playing along side a future MVP & multiple All-Stars.

27. "Folk keep basing their argument soley on an 2011*, I'll keep it coming ..."

Dude put up numbers against washed up Pau, wet-behind-the-ear Ibaka while taking a nap on defense & shooting 40% in the finals. Not to mention it was JET/Barea that closed out the series & Kidd/Tyson were the LEADERS of the team.

What so impressive about being Milk Carton status Bron while being outplayed by Wade? I'm not impressed by that whatsoever......the fact he ain't even won a fuckin' GAME in the post-season ever since supports my argument. His history of failing miserably in the grandest stages isn't going to be erased by a meres asterisk worthy rental chip in 2011 that he has yet to come close to vindicating whatsoever.

P.S. KG was the one responsible for running bath-salts Bron out of Cleveland but I ain't never heard anyone, including me, bring that up as an argument on KG's behalf. On the other hand Dirk greatest achievement is being part of a team that Milk Carton status Bron. Shyt, 37 year old Tim had Bath-Salts Bron (w/ championship experience) on his knees before Ray bailed him out.....but nope nobody is using that to augment Timmay's career. Basically, the argument for Dirk is based on a suspect achievement but then that is all Dirk has to hang onto so far, welp.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

Thu Apr-10-14 06:25 PM by FILF

  

          

This whole debate began in a post about whether Dirk was better than KG ......and let me tell ya; cats solely leaned on 2011 to claim Dirk was better. That has more to do w/ cats being anti-Bron & rooting for anyone who could take down the Heatles.

Cats have been putting down KG & still do based on what occurred in Minny same w/ Bron in Cleveland while glorifying Dirk based on 2011. Basically I'm point out how overblown Dirk's performance in 2011 is thus, they will realize their argument that KG isn't better than Dirk just because of 2011 is not as strong as they believe it to be.

Otherwise, Dirk is a one way player who had a great regular season record & a pretty good post-season career as a SCORER. Let's not glorify him anymore than that....end of story.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

got his chip

and your soul is still hurt after all these years.

Basically, unless your Chris Bosh, there's no reason for you to be this much of a crybaby over his moment in the sun. You've been doing everything you can to discount this inclusion in the Winners Circle.
It's personal and you're fighting a losing battle.

Carry on. Time heals all wounds.

you guys are like those folks who get carried away while listening to boxing blow-by-blow guys wax poetic about some dude throwing flurries that end up being blocked.

Dirk dominated washed up Pau & wet behind the ears Ibaka but the Finals are a totally different story.
-Dirk shot 40% while displaying his customary all around game (which happens to be none) then you had JET closing out the series against Milk Carton status Bron & Dirk carried the team in the FINALS.....something doesn't add up.

Same battle cats have been waging to discount KG/Bron.....but I ain't never heard you defending them b/c Bron is seen as a threat to your boy Bean & a HEALTHY KG led a team that embarrassed Bean & crew in 2008.
As long as Dirk doesn't validate his 2011 rental chip then Cheese-Eyes are 'em will be handing him left overs at the winners table.

Uh... what does this have to do with you being hurt over Dirk winning a title? I'm not even going to address that nonsense, nor the contextual shit you're leaving out.

LOL talk about moving a goal post.

Winning a title validates winning a title. A title does not need further validation, unless your a crying ass cry baby crying because a player you hate for no good reason won it.

besides, I NEVER said he would have to win ANOTHER TITLE to validate 2011......he just needs another post-season run at least get to the conference finals or something .......as of now if he ends his career w/o winning a fuckin' post-season GAME after winning a title it's going to be beyond shameful just like him accepting the MVP trophy after being bounced in the 1st rd in 2007. It just validates the narrative that HE NEEDS players to MAKE HIM LOOK GOOD........RATHER THAN HIM MAKING his TEAMMATES BETTER.

to validate an NBA championship.

How are you going to go around calling people an idiot when you're over here talking about how he needs to validate a world champion? lol. While we're at it, since your so incredulous with that bullshit "I NEVER said he would have to win ANOTHER TITLE to validate 2011" line, how about you point me to where I said or even remotely implied that you said he'd need ANOTHER TITLE?

LOL

Look at you over here yelling at traffic like a lunatic.

The whole notion that he needs validation is absurd, and you can stop getting bent out of shape over nonexistent words any time.

Winning a title is it's own validation, but you're so clearly hurt by his title on a personal level you've decided that winning a title against a team sporting three all stars in the prime of their career isn't enough.

Your entire steeze regarding Dirk is pretty much the definition of sour grapes.

Oh, and you can clown the lottery all you want. The bottom line is Lakers season and Spurs season will end with both teams without a title, and everyone with a brain knows the Lakers will have another O'Brien trophy on the shelf before the Spurs will.

Further, the Lakers are still a more important and more interesting squad even as lotto fodder than the Spurs are when they're winning titles. The whole Dirk issue boils down to your pathetic inferiority complex, which has been obvious from day one. Cry about it some more, why don't you.

I would say Hakeem still holds that title. You look at potential HOF'ers and existing ones, you'd have to look at Nash, T5T, Manu, Deke, Petro and Sabonis. I guess the argument could be made for Nash. Petro is more a case of what could have been, Sabonis is too but for different reasons.

50. "from boston sports guy's melo column:"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

(just in case anyone forgot)

http://grantland.com/features/carmelo-anthony-new-york-knicks-legacy/

"Dirk is one of the 20 best basketball players of all time by any calculation. Hes the best foreign player ever not named Hakeem. Of the 10 best forwards ever, hes behind Bird, LeBron and Duncan, right there with Doc, Elgin and Pettit, and ahead of Malone, Barkley and Rick Barry. (Sorry, John Havlicek I didnt count you because you were technically a swingman.) He won an MVP and a Finals MVP. He made four first-team All-NBAs and five second-team All-NBAs. He won 50-plus games for 11 straight years, topped 60 wins three times, made two Finals, beat LeBron and Wade in the Finals, and won a Game 7 in San Antonio during Duncans prime.

And its not like he had a ton of help. In 15 years, he played with only four All-Stars: Jason Kidd (2010), Josh Howard (2007), Steve Nash (2002 and 2003) and Michael Finley (2000 and 2001). Amazing but true: Dirk never played with a Hall of Famer in that Hall of Famers prime.

During Dirks decade-long peak (2002 through 2011), he averaged 24.5 points and 8.8 rebounds and came damned close to creating the 10-Year 50-40-90 Club (48% FG, 39% 3FG, 89% FT). His career PER (23.48) ranks 19th all time, just behind Doc (23.58) and Bird (23.5) and just ahead of Kobe (23.36). And he was an absolutely phenomenal playoff performer: 25.6 PPG (12th all time), 24.2 PER (12th), 22.6 win shares (16th), stellar 46-37-89% splits in 135 games, and a couple of epic multigame hot streaks in 2006 and 2011. Along with Pettit, Hakeem and Elgin, hes one of four players in the shot-clock era who averaged 25 and 10 in the playoffs. And hes an underrated leader, a famously fantastic locker-room guy, an insanely hard worker and someone who, by all accounts, everyone loved playing with at every point of his career."

Theres a reason they let him walk.

They thought he was too old and would be done by the time his contract was up.

Theres a reason everyone was shocked to hell when he went all Super Saiyan in Phoenix.

Its telling that youre pretending his prime was when he was in Dallas, putting up 14/9 and barely made one All Star team and not when he was in Phoenix putting up 18/11, a fixture on the all star team and winning back to back MVPs on a team more stacked and better balanced with more players in their prime at one time than any team Dirk had.

Yeah. Were done here.

Dude was muphuckin' 30 before he left the Mavs. Cuban also let Tyson Chandler go b/c he didn't want to give him a LONG TERM contract & ended up bringing him back when his contract was about to expire. Cuban was a terrible wanna be GM who signed Shimmy Walker to play CENTER.

The reason Nash didn't put up #s w/ the Mavs was b/c Dirk wasn't a PnR player but rather an ISO player. Meanwhile Nash's forte happens to be the PnR.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

And since this is Dirk we're talking about, you're going to pretend there's no middle ground between "HOF player in his prime" and "role player"

Yeah. Like I said, we're done here.

Dirk held him back & D'Antoni allowed him to excel...any other claim about Nash not being in his prime during his time w/ the Mavs is laughable.

if you want to say he wasn't in that good in Dallas, then he wasn't that good in Phx and the stats are a mirage.

Which, lol, I'm willing to listen to. But he didn't just magically turn into a a different player.

In response to Reply # 57


  

          

He was criminally underrated there because they managed his minutes and shared the ball. But he was quietly spectacular, running a high tempo offense with great efficiency. That's why he was able to take it to another level in Phoenix, they were even higher tempo and he dominated the ball much more.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

some of that is misleading, Dirk played with a lot of talented guys that may not have made a lot of All-Star teams playing with Dirk but they were still All-Star players, Kidd is obviously a 10-time All-Star and HOF'er, Nash is a 8-time All-Star, 2-time MVP and HOF'er, Finley only made 2 ASG's but probably should've made more, unfortunately his prime coincided with the primes of a lot of all-time great HOF players in the late 90's/early 00's, but for a 5 or 6 year stretch Finley was one of the best all-around wing players in the NBA averaging 20,5&5 forming a "big 3" for Dallas along with Dirk and Nash.

Not to mention he played with other people in their primes like Jamison and Walker that were All-Stars on other teams but they just didn't have as many scoring opportunities with Dirk. Then there were other former All-Stars that were slightly past their primes but still good like Stackhouse, Van Exel, Tim Hardaway, Matrix and Chandler. Jason Terry may have never been an All-Star but he has been a very good player for a very long time so the narrative that Dirk didn't have "a ton of help" is kinda bogus.

As great as his offensive numbers were one of the main reasons his teams didn't win more was because its tough to hide a defensive liability at the PF position, lol.

say he's better than them...

I think I would prefer him over Malone, though, but not Barkley

Because of Malone's inability to create his own shot and lack of handles, I'm one of those who believes a huge part of his success was due to playing w/Stockton - definitely think he benefited more from playing w/playing Stockton than vice versa

In response to Reply # 62
Wed Jul-16-14 07:19 PM by FILF

  

          

Barkley was as good as Dirk when it came to getting buckets but he was also a monster rebounder & much better play maker. Malone on the other hand wasn't a great ISO scorer & didn't have much of a post game thus he couldn't come through in the clutch. Although Malone was a much better playmaker/defender.

FOH....Dream was the BEST defender in the muphuckin' league & didn't have anyone resembling JET/Kidd/Chandler/Marion. Dirk isn't sniffing Dream 94 & Tim's '03 run. Plus, Dirk shot 42% in the Finals.

64. "simmons is such a hack these days sheesh"
In response to Reply # 56


  

          

in what universe is dirk better than barkley or malone?

rick barry is an interesting comparison. i would possibly lean toward barry, who is overlooked as just an incredible volume scorer, but i could see an argument for dirk. certainly in a scenario where i was taking one guy or the other from the outset of their career, i would take dirk. much more of a calming presence. i won't say barry wasn't a leader or a team player, but he was abrasive and mercurial. talent wise it's very close.

the other guys, I mean what does "right there with" mean? could he be compared? is he in the conversation? i guess, but that doesn't mean a lot.

i would agree with the broader claim that he is one of the 20 best forwards, but i think simmons is doing way too much putting him ahead of barkley and malone. barkley at his best was an incredible force, he had the best peak of the three. malone is consistently overlooked, he easily had the best career of any PF ever (i consider duncan to be a center).

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Hakeem carried a bunch of role players to a chip in 94 beating PRIME Mail Man along the way. In 95, Dream had his equivalent of Stockton & swept Shaq / clubbed Admiral like a baby Seal......oh yeah, he also UPSET the 3 seed Jazz & sent Karl packing in the 1st rd.

During his prime:
-Dude used to be Drexler's whooping boy
-Kemp neutralized him 93/96 & outplayed him when it mattered most
-Sheed shut his ass down in 99 (the same season Malone won his 2nd MVP)......meanwhile sophomore Timmay swept the same Blazers.

Mail Man's whooping boys were Admiral & pre-Feel Shaq.

all in the same postseason, none of those dudes were beating Bulls either.

-The Rockets were AARP status w/ EVERYONE in their rotation being in their mid to late 30s. Dream was also dealing w/ tendinitis & missed a bunch of game. It was also fat ass Barkley that got his ass handed to him by Malone.

-Tim actually held his own against Malone but Admiral wet the bed shooting 39% against muphuckin' Greg Foster. If it wasn't for Admiral chokin' yet again the Spurs would have won the series.

-Shaq put up 30/10

LMAO at you calling out Dream when you are plea coppin' for Malone stating he didn't have anyone better than muphuckin' HOFer John Stockton & claiming Hornacek wasn't a very good role player. Look at the 1993-94 Rockets roster & get back at me...dude was playing w/ muphuckin' Kenny/Maxwell before Cassell/Horry were drafted. Bamma ass Otis might have been the best player he played w/ during his prime before Clyde arrived.

the Rockets were only a few years removed from back-to-back titles, Malone had beaten them the year before too. Basically that same Spurs team would win it all the very next season and the year after that Kobe and Shaq started their 3-peat, Malone beat some good ass teams.

88. "Malone & Stockton didn't have chronic injury issues"
In response to Reply # 84
Wed Jul-16-14 11:48 PM by FILF

  

          

In 97-98: Dream didn't even make the All-Star team in b/c he missed a bunch of games chronic tendinitis & Barkley was fat as fuck. Clyde meanwhile lost his athleticism & was a shadow of the player he was in '95 let alone '92.

In 96-97: Dream was the best player in the WCF but his teammates let him down. Meanwhile Stockton tore up Elie (he was the best player on the Jazz) and hit "The Shot" that sent the Jazz to the Finals.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

Doesn't sniff Duncan, not as good as Barkley, the Dirk thing feels weird because they don't even feel like they played the same position.

Not for being one of the great franchises of the era, more like one of the very good ones, but for their effort that postseason. They were clearly the best team in those playoffs. Even with Bron going harder, I don't think Miami would have won the series.

>Even with Bron going harder, I don't think Miami would have

The Heat were leading in the the 4th quarters of Gm 2 & 4 (Bron scored 8 total points!) but lost both game by 2 & 3 pts respectively...had Bron made a fuckin' field goal or scored more than a grand total of 2 measly points in two 4th quarters then the Heat could have easily won those two games & wrapped up the series in a 4 game sweep. Once the Mavs won Gm 4, they started believing they could actually win the series & Barea/JET started making it rain.

I've always given the Mavs props for taking advantage when the opportunity present itself but let's not act like Bron didn't gift them the series.

I mean, Dirk ran through a resilient Blazers team with Brandon Roy turning back the clock, the defending champion Lakers, the up and coming Thunder (who made the Finals the next year), AND the Heatles.

And he destroyed them.

16-5.

He went up against Lebron, Kobe, Wade, Bosh, Durant, Aldridge, Westbrook, Harden in one postseason.

That's insane.

DESTROYED? Pau/Ibaka, sure......but let's not act like Wade wasn't the best player in the Finals & Bron didn't go milk carton status. Not to mention B-Roy did a whole lot of nothing aside from that 4th quarter outburst in Game 4.

>16-5.

The Mavs were a DEFENSIVE team that won games w/ timely shots. The kingpins of the defense were Tyson/Kidd/Marion. People act like Dirk was all by himself just b/c he was the alpha on offense. The same Mavs squad w/o Tyson got bounced by the 7th seed Spurs in 2010 b/c they had no interior defense. Tyson Chandler was the MVP of their squad! Also, the fact the Spurs had the #1 seed & won 60 games in the WESTERN CONFERENCE that season is laughable b/c the Richard Jefferson/Dejuan Blair era Spurs were wack. Manu broke his hand & the #1 seed Spurs got bounced, OKC was just learning how to crawl, PDX had nobody besides LMA (who was referred to as SOFTridge at the time), the Lakers were on a downward spiral & the Heat still hadn't figured it out. The stars were perfectly aligned for the Mavs in 2011. KG in 2004 had old ass Spree/Cassell & dominated BOTH SIDES of the floor but nobody talks about it b/c he run into 4 HOFers in the WCF.

If Dirk pull off the same trick when the Lakers were at their peak, the Heat at their peak, LMA w/ a legit wingman or OKC after it had learned how to walk then I would have been impressed. Hakeem & Tim were going up against HOFer in their primes in 94/'03 w/ an inferior supporting cast than Dirk had in 2011 while also dominating BOTH SIDES of the floor. Iverson's run in 2001 & Bron's run 2007 were more impressive to me than Dirk's 2011 run....Bron/Iverson simply run into a buzzsaw in the Finals. If you look back at cats who dominated one side of the floor (Nique/Gervin/King), they were going up against Showtime Lakers/Bird's Celtics/Bad Boys/Sixers & put up historic performances equal to what Dirk did to Pau/Ibaka but nobody talks about it b/c they couldn't never get past those teams.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

not when it mattered.


>The Mavs were a DEFENSIVE team that won games w/ timely shots.

Dallas was a BALANCED team (8th in Ortg / 8th in Drtg) that won games scoring as well as on D (e.g. they torched LA with a shooting clinic)


>The kingpins of the defense were Tyson/Kidd/Marion. People act

and because he didn't play with any all-stars. that's just kind of the way that works.

And a worst Mavs squad w/o Tyson bounced the 3rd seed Spurs the year before that. Oh and Tyson has never made it out of the 2nd round without Dirk.

OKC learned to crawl vs LA in 2010 & were dangerous in 2011, Lakers were defending champs however you want to slice it, and Miami had it figured out by the ECF vs Chicago. if it was as easy to beat all those teams as you're saying then somebody else would have, but they didn't. Dirk did.


KG in 2004 had old ass Spree/Cassell & dominated BOTH
>SIDES of the floor but nobody talks about it b/c he run into 4
>HOFers in the WCF.

2011 JET was the same age as 2004 Spree & "Kingpin" Kidd was older than Cassell. And KG ran into 2 HOFers w/ 2 over the hill former stars and lost; Dirk faced 3 HOFers in their PRIME and WON.


>If Dirk pull off the same trick when the Lakers were at their

nobody cares what you think.

LOL - 2001 sixers were a DEFENSIVE team anchored by DPOY Deke but you want to act like Iverson was all by himself just b/c he was the alpha on offense (ironic, huh?)

and who did AI actually beat on that 2001 run? Old-ass Reggie, bum-ass Big Dog, and Wince Carter.

and that's more impressive to you than Dirk's 2011 run? FOH

110. "WTF have LMA/Bosh done in the postseason against top PFs"
In response to Reply # 106
Thu Mar-26-15 10:11 PM by FILF

  

          

Haslem locked up Dirk in 2006 but RuPaul is infamous for getting his ass dug in by David West & the only time LMA went past the 1st rd he didn't fare any better than Dirk against Tiago.

>Dallas was a BALANCED team (8th in Ortg / 8th in Drtg) that
>won games scoring as well as on D (e.g. they torched LA with a
>shooting clinic)

Dallas had an efficient offense but their IDENTITY was that of a DEFENSIVE team. Kidd/Barea forced a high tempo game against the Lakers to nullify their size advantage & the FACT they forced the Lakers to miss a bunch of shots helped their cause. If the 2011 Mavs were playing pre-Tyson defense then they wouldn't have gotten as many easy baskets.

>and because he didn't play with any all-stars. that's just
>kind of the way that works.

According to that logic, since Tony was the leader in both points & assists plus happened to be the lone All-Star on the 2014 Spurs he "didn't have any help".

>And a worst Mavs squad w/o Tyson bounced the 3rd seed Spurs
>the year before that. Oh and Tyson has never made it out of
>the 2nd round without Dirk.

Manu was out for the entire postseason on 2009 & came back in 2010 to whoop some ass. Meanwhile Dirk had all his supporting cast sans Tyson in 2010 & got utterly outplayed by a backup player (George Hill) in the pivotal Gm 4. To add insult to injury G.Hill made him pay for playing a turnstile defense (Where Art Thou Tyson?) & stuck a dagger through his heart in the closeout game : https://youtu.be/N0pkwMQUvJs?t=205

>OKC learned to crawl vs LA in 2010 & were dangerous in 2011
Harden was still a role player & Ibaka was RAW as fuck in 2011. Harden established himself as the best 6th man in the game & destroyed the Mavs in 2012.

>Lakers were defending champs however you want to slice it
The Lakers were struggling against a team that had Landry playing wingman in the 1st rd b/c burnt out Pau was struggling to keep him in check.

>Miami had it figured out by the ECF vs Chicago
You mean when it was Bron's turn to play alpha & Wade's turn to play the 3rd wheel.

>if it was as
>easy to beat all those teams as you're saying then somebody
>else would have, but they didn't. Dirk did.

2010-11 was a down year as the top seed in both conferences were pretty mediocre compared to future & past 60 win teams.
-Bulls won 60+ games although they were heavily relying on Boozer
-The Spurs won 60 games while featuring the likes of Dejaun Blair/Richard Jefferson in their starting line-up & relying on Booner/Neal as part of their rotation.

Both squads would have been a 7th seed at best in last years western conference. The Heat made it to the Finals by pure talent & the Mavs didn't have to go through their nemeses (Spurs) thus it was a gravy train to the Finals.

>2011 JET was the same age as 2004 Spree
Spree had other duties beside scoring: It's called playing DEFENSE & he had to be the playmaker along w/ KG since Cassell was out of commission in the WCF.

>& "Kingpin" Kidd was older than Cassell.
Cassell's back problem flared up against the Kings & barely played in the WCF. Even if he was healthy Cassell couldn't affect the game on the other side of the court, actually he was a liability.

>And KG ran into 2 HOFers w/ 2 over the
>hill former stars and lost; Dirk faced 3 HOFers in their
>PRIME and WON.
Milk Carton Bron isn't seeing '04 Shaq & RuPaul against a legit PF hasn't been any more productive than Malone/Payton in the '04 WCF.

>nobody cares what you think.
You obviously do...no need to elaborate.

>LOL - 2001 sixers were a DEFENSIVE team anchored by DPOY Deke
>but you want to act like Iverson was all by himself just b/c
>he was the alpha on offense (ironic, huh?)

In addition to creating plays for himself AI also had to MAKE PLAYS for HIS TEAMMATES almost every time he was on the floor which was far from that case for Dirk. Not to mention DPOY Deke got destroyed by Shaq & AI still was able to inflict the only blemish on the 2001 Lakers postseason run.

>and who did AI actually beat on that 2001 run? Old-ass Reggie,
>bum-ass Big Dog, and Wince Carter.
-Old ass Reggie > No knees B-Roy
-2001 Bucks > 2011 Lakers
-2001 Wince > Milk Carton Bron

>and that's more impressive to you than Dirk's 2011 run? FOH

We all know what would happen if Dirk had the same supporting cast as AI did in 2001:
-MVP Dirk: 1st Rd exit while being outplayed by Stephen Jackson
-MVP AI: Finals appearance while outplaying Kobe/Vince/Ray

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/_/id/11862185/dirk-nowitzki-dallas-mavericks-tops-international-players-scoring-list

DALLAS - No international player has scored more points in the NBA than Dirk Nowitzki.

Nowitzki, the native of Wurzburg, Germany, and face of the Dallas Mavericks franchise, moved past Nigerian-born Hakeem Olajuwon into ninth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list Tuesday night.


Dirk Nowitzki knocked down a midrange jumper with 8:56 left Tuesday against the Kings to pass Hakeem Olajuwon in career scoring.
Nowitzki, a 17-year veteran, entered the 106-98 victory over Sacramento Kings needing 17 points to pass Olajuwon, the former Houston Rockets center who finished his Hall of Fame career with 26,946 points

The 10k rebounds and 1k in blocks are impressive given that he's not known as being the best defensive player. I'm not a huge fan of his, but that's very very impressive.

In response to Reply # 117


  

          

to overtake Kobe as the highest scorer by a Western Conference opponent against BOS and he didn't score at all said all that needs to be said.

He hasn't announced that this is his final year, but I can't imagine his mind or body wants to go through all of the conditioning just to play nowhere near replacement level play next year.

I didn't have much of an opinion of Dirk either way during the early part of his career, but that title run in '11(?) won me over.

One of the GOAT's, no doubt.

While I'm sad this is happening to him, I'm happy he's talking about it. Might help encourage more players to make decisions based on long-term quality of life.

it seemed like the trainers worked on him an inordinate amount of time to get him ready to play for like 10 minutes and I remember thinking then what was the point
