|Dec-19-14|| ||perfidious: <SF> Bit of a change to see Jackson making point-blank statements rather than his favoured passive-aggressive manoeuvres.|
|Dec-19-14|| ||HeMateMe: ...He's no longer worried about offending Michael or Kobe.|
|Dec-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: <All stars and Knicks? When's the last time someone said that in the same sentence?>|
12th man Scott Hastings used to say, "People mention me in the same breath with Larry Bird all the time. They say, 'That Scott Hastings, he sure is no Larry Bird.'"

|Dec-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Just heard a comment by Charles barkley on the radio about the Knicks.|
Lupica: "Charles, do you even know the principles of the triangle?"
Charles: "Yeah, I know four principles: Michael, Scottie, Shaq, Kobe."
|Dec-19-14|| ||WannaBe: Did not know triangles have 4 sides!!!|
|Dec-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: More Barkley, to New York fans: "It's going to be a long winter up there. At least you have the Jets. Oops,, bad example."|
|Dec-19-14|| ||perfidious: To think that the best NY team right now is Rangers.....all that monnaie spent by Yankees for an old, mediocre team has led to naught.|
|Dec-19-14|| ||plang: When you look at the great Yankee teams of the late 90s - Rivera, Jeter, Posada, Pettite and Bernie Williams were home grown. Many of the free agents they signed were role players - Martinez, Brosius etc|
|Dec-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Right. Those great Yankee teams were largely homegrown; it was hard to hate them. And others like O'Neill and Knoblauch were acquired in trades, not as free agents, though Knoblauch came for a bunch of prospects who never panned out.|
|Dec-19-14|| ||WannaBe: Chuck 'throwing problem' Knoblauch?|
|Dec-19-14|| ||plang: Brutal 3 days for the Spurs - 2 home losses both in triple overtime to Memphis and Portland. Duncan 48 minutes on Wednesday and 42 tonight.|
First team to play consecutive triple OT games since the 1951 Baltimore Bullets.
|Dec-20-14|| ||HeMateMe: One more Barkleyism: After being accosted by an unruly fan in a bar and throwing him through a plate glass window, Chuck said "The incident is regrettable. I regret we weren't' on a higher floor."|
|Dec-20-14|| ||HeMateMe: Jordan wing tips commercial:
|Dec-20-14|| ||perfidious: <plang> True, though one wonders how matters would have gone if Steinbrenner had not been forced out for two years, the period during which Gene Michael drafted without hindrance from Good King George.|
|Dec-20-14|| ||HeMateMe: What do the Yanks do about A-Rod? He is still owed $25M a year for one or two seasons. It's a PR nightmare to have him in the locker room. Also, age and injuries have made him a .250 hitter, expendable at this point in time. Do they just waive him and eat the loss?|
|Dec-20-14|| ||plang: They announced last week that he would not be playing in the field - that he would DH.|
If he doesn't hit they will probably try to trade him (I am sure they would eat most of the $)
|Dec-20-14|| ||Jim Bartle: I love the Simmons-Jalen Rose podcasts. On the latest one they were wondering whether the players read all the stuff criticizing them on social media, twitter and all that. (Mainly about James Harden.)|
Rose said yes, they read it. So Simmons pulls out some comment from 2002 where he just rips Rose into little pieces. And Rose just laughs.
Then Rose talked about almost getting thrown out of a Christmas game against the Knicks when playing for Indiana. He didn't want to get tossed for fighting Kurt Thomas. Said if he'd wanted to fight, "I would have looked to my left, there's Dale, looked to my right, there's Antonio. OK, let's go." Said he and Thomas were teammates later and they just laughed about it.
|Dec-21-14|| ||HeMateMe: Does that mean he wanted one of the Davis boys, Dale or Antonio, to fight Kurt, a pretty tough rebounder, defender? That's one (of the few) times the Knicks of the last ten years might have had an advantage over someone.|
|Dec-21-14|| ||perfidious: Right-handed power bats have been strangely difficult to come by these days--I have little doubt that some contender will try to catch lightning in a bottle and trade for A-Roid up towards the non-waiver deadline, if he stays healthy and shows some of the old pop. If not, Yankees will have to eat the last helping of their folly.|
|Dec-21-14|| ||perfidious: Um, make that the waiver deadline.....|
|Dec-21-14|| ||HeMateMe: A-roid will be tested more thoroughly than the latest Britney Spears album. surely you don't think it is best for him to quietly seek a buy out, take his money, what's left of his reputation, and get out of baseball? The man can't hit anymore, without the juice. Surely he doesn't need the money? Madonna has her OWN money!|
Go AWAY, A-Rod!
Tu peudes hablarlo?
|Dec-21-14|| ||perfidious: I'd like to test Britney, just for a while.....|
|Dec-21-14|| ||HeMateMe: I've already done so, Perf. You can bounce a quarter off her belly. I have photos.|
|Dec-21-14|| ||perfidious: <HMM> Kewl.|
