    Amazing that Bleacher Report is employing a Lin only fan

    You are honestly one of the most pathetic writers of all time.

    Pretty cold to call Howard out like you did after a 6'9, 200+ pound guy rolled over his knee. Dwight's injury could potentially be serious, and yet you're over here calling him out. You're an embarrassment to B/R.

    Where were you when Howard had his good games against the Clippers and Mavs? I bet you were in your little hole, crying and wishing he had never left LA. Am I right or am I right? You're a terrible writer. Grow a DING and stop being biased, you piece of crap.

    You said the Rockets aren't built for the playoffs
    -They're in the WCF with 2 of their starters (Pat Bev and D-Mo) missing the entire playoffs

    You said Dwight is far from 'Superman'
    -So one bad game suddenly means he's not a good player anymore. HOLY SHIT you are stupid. Again, YOU ARE IGNORING HIS OVERALL PERFORMANCE IN THE PLAYOFFS. Next time you write anything, make sure that little brain of yours isn't out of your head.

    Fuck you, I hope you get fired. Stop being biased and grow a brain.

    You are an embarrassment to journalism. I want to like you, and I don't usually voice my displeasure with journalists, but it's clear you are here simply due to Affirmative Action. Josh Smith rolled into Howard's knee, SPRAINING his knee, and that's Dwight's fault? Surely you are aware that Andrew Bynum's knee was shredded on the same exact thing in like 2009, being the Laker lover that you are? You're sole purpose for hating Dwight is the fact that your selfish superstar and cold franchise wasn't able to sign him long term. Disgraceful and unprofessional, you're basically on the same level of Laker trolls. Due to the sorry state of your team, you feel the need to shred Howard at every turn. Affirmative Action is apparent here, because it's clear you don't have the class, respect, or objectivity to be a high profile journalist.

    It is so obvious that you hate the Rockets, you articles are so biased against them. You should not be a professional writer, unless you are writing for the Lakers. I can't believe you still have a job with Bleacher Report. How bout being unbiased, you piece of trash.

    It's obvious you're still salty about Dwight leaving LA. You waste so much time writing irrelevant articles that only tear down the little respect anyone has ever had for you; such as the one about how the Rockets are built for the playoffs or how Dwight Howard isn't Superman. Newsflash, Ding: Howard just had a 20 point, 21 rebound game the other night. And he's averaging 16 points, 14 rebounds, and 2 blocks a game. Let me put that into perspective for you: He's averaging more points in the playoffs than 17 people on your beloved Lakers, he's averaging more rebounds than any player on your beloved Lakers, and he's averaging more blocks than anyone on your beloved Lakers. Maybe it's time you stop hating on other teams without any reasonable evidence and focus on criticizing your own team. It might help you gain some credibility, although I highly doubt anyone who writes articles as blasphemous as you do can ever have any type of credibility.

    Kevin, Porziingus will be a mediocre NBA player that has no position. You said the same thing about Bargnani when he was coming out and how did that turn out? This is a lesser skilled Bargnani with more athleticism that's it. The Lakers must find their way in this draft to land D. Russell or I. Mudiea. Then, they need to trade Jordan Hill after exercising their option on him, along with the #27 pick to get Bobby Portis from Arkansas. He will be a dynamic front court pro after a year or two.
