VERY VERY WELL SAID ANISH!!! Couldn't agree with you more.
Hey Anish... What do you think of San Antonio winning it all this year? Just curious. Myself, I'd rather them than Miami... that's for sure. Just my opinion.
Watch out... our resident troll Michael Loser has stolen my profile photo and name and is posting all over BR with it. LMAO
Ya... unfortunately... Michael Loser has made it his new thing now. Diving off into the sludgy depths of trolldom... He's got my user pic and is still posting all over Oregon articles with it. So use caution and spread the word... it's rather easy to tell the real me from the Michael L creation.. all he's doing is posting "My ducks will not beat anybody" crap all over the place. LMAO!!! I can't even believe someone would be so pathetic and desperate for attention as to make moves like this on a damn sports blog... but whatever... apparently he has absolutely no life none whatsoever. Quite evident now that all over our assumptions about this jackass are quite true. LOL!!!
I used to be a perty dedicated blazer fan. But that was back in the time when I was just a kid... they had Drexler (easily would've been the best player in the NBA if not in Jordan's shadow at the time), Kevin Duckworth (awesome character, community and kids guy), Porter, Buck Williams and so on. LOVED THAT TEAM!!! And I loved my blazers up into the days of Bryan Grant, Sabonis, and so on... but then.... they became the frickin JAILBLAZERS!!! And constantly nothing but negative crap in the news about the stupid stuff they were doing off the court, and I'm sorry, but the owner was a total noob that was always clearly more interested in the investments and engagements he had going on in Seattle and so forth, than he was in actually building a championship program, or even maintaining one that was worthy of the incedible dedicated and loyal fans in Portland and the entire state of Oregon. Total idiotic decisions on a constant basis to the point where I gave up on them. That was the ONLY professional team I cared about. And to this day, because of the ridiculous amounts of money involved, I really don't follow professional sports at all. It just makes me sick that as a civilization we throw that kind of money at human beings for playing a recreational sport, while thousands are suffering elsewhere in this world, without even having the privelage of knowing what the sport is. So not much of an NBA fan, or NFL, or any other pro sport anymore. I do realize that college is loaded with money and not much different in some respects... but it is completely opposite in one regard, and that is, that they are just young adults... and primarily, their purpose is getting an education before doing what the vast majority of them do wind up doing... and that is moving on with a different career that is not sports related. Once they go pro... I wish them the best... but I don't follow them. Ducks? I've been a Ducks fan since I attended my first game at Autzen Stadium when I was 6 years old. Been screaming my guts out for them every weekend since. LOVE THE DUCKS, BREATH THE DUCKS, LIVE THE DUCKS!!!! My wife attended school there for business while I was serving over seas for 4 years we lived in Eugene, and my families education from the university is what pays the bills around here. Her best friend, and a very close friend of the family, was an Oregon cheerleader in the mid 90's, and we still have many connections to the university of Oregon that extends beyond past Alumn. It's my team, always has been, always will be. So that's why I put DUCKS as #1 on my list. Seahawks and blazers... great stuff.. but just not my thing for the reasons I already told you. I think it's great that your passionate about them, and I certainly don't expect you to have the same views that I do... this world is an ocean where everyone must float their own boat... but it's just my path. Anyway... always nice chatting with a fellow Duck brother Anish.
Hey there Anish.
Seahawks... then you got it right. Hahahaha
Great list of Top NBA Players of all time, though I honestly think that LeBron James has cracked the Top 10 list by now.
My own list is very similar to yours, though the rankings are slightly different:
1. Michael Jordan
2. Bill Russell
3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
4. Magic Johnson
7. Shaquille O'Neal
8. Tim Duncan
9. LeBron James
10-11. T Oscar Robertson /Kobe Bryant
12. Hakeem Olajuwon
13. Moses Malone
14. Jerry West
15. John Havlicek
16. Julius Erving
17. Karl Malone
18. John Stockton
19. Charles Barkley
20. Bob Cousy or Bob Pettit (have to include at least 1 of the oldies)
By the way, I can see you're a Portland fan. I'm old enough to have memories of the 1977 and 1978 Portland Trailblazers and THAT was a super team and Bill Walton was truly a great player. Were it nor for his injuries, he could have cracked the Top 10 to 15, easily.
Thats a pretty big IF. The blazers are a very good team dont get me wrong, but if they havnt started playing defense now. I doubt they start playing it in the playoffs.
And the lakers will make the playoffs this year as an 8th seed and win the title sweeping every team in their path.
do you agree with my top 5 list?
Daniel was a kobe fan back in 2010 when the lakers won back to back titles, then after that hes hated kobe. And for lebron, its like a love hate relationship. He likes him, but he doesnt want to admit it. His favorite player is Mike.
