If I'm correct, The League instituted the fining penalty because of that laughable Paul flop against Cousins?

If the league wants to stop it they will have to suspend players not fine them. Fines mean nothing to a guy like Paul. Divac just said he had a clause in his contract that paid for all his fines and I'm sure Paul does as well.

Suspend him for a game.... then 2 and his teammates will change the behavior. Do it in the Playoffs and the fans will.

Speaking about their fans, I remember being little and going to the US for the first time, specifically to L.A. and in a very innocent manner, just after arriving to the hotel, I went to the counter and asked "are there any Clippers fans in Los Angeles?". I was 7 years old I believe.

Was that before or after they traded for Chris Paul?.....

And there we go. This is not even questionable. AI was one of the most unique and gifted players we've ever seen and he had the heart of a lion in the frame of a house cat at 165 pounds. He was virtually unstoppable during his prime. And he was the most fearless player I've ever watched.

Chris Paul? :man10: Are you kidding me? He's a terrific point guard, no doubt, but he's not in the same discussion with one of the all time gamers. Not a chance.

AI literally dominated the league for a while at 6 foot one, 165. That's just unheard of in the history of the game.

please get your garbage out of here, stop trying to convince yourself that CP3 isn't the king of flops at the present time and that he's a mental midget that can't take a deep team out of the 2nd round.


CP3 isn't that good. The best traditional PG as of right now, but thats about it. Imagine Tony Parker with that clippers team.

Why do I need to see what a body building forum has to say? That just goes further away from the game and the people who watch him regularly and backs up my statement that once a player gains a reputation, it sticks no matter what the reality might be. Like I said, he does flop and you cringe sometimes when he does it but it's not what make him a great pg. I go by the eye test. Not what his rep is. Having watched almost all of his games as a Clipper, imho, he plays the game the right way the vast majority of the time. And I have to go with my eyes versus perceived reputations. Again, I am not disputing he flops and sometimes to cringe worthy levels but the guy is an amazing basketball player first and foremost.

Let me ask you this. Did you watch them play GS and OKC this playoffs? If so, show me the constant floppings in those two series.

And like I said before, you guys can't judge CP3 yet cause his career isn't over. He just turned 29 and still has 3-4 prime years left. He's in a good situation right now. Let's see what he does the next few years. Then we can properly evaluate him. Until then, all this talk about "he can't get out of the 2nd round", is premature.

When you're a kid in PE and you can't climb the rope and get to the top, guess what you get? An F. If you eventually get to the top, you get a different grade. But until you reach the top of that rope, you fail.

Until he gets out of the 2nd round Chris Paul is a loser. A 29 year old loser that flops around the court like a fish. I'll judge him all I want because the body of his career is what LeBron James' was in Cleveland: great stats that mask the stink of loser.

The comment that Paul's career isn't over and that he may get deeper in the playoffs is a prime example of why I don't mix team accomplishments with individual player valuation. For Paul to get deeper in the playoffs he will need a true number one to come to the Clippers. Then his fans can say... "look!... I told you so..." The reality is that he's a talented PG who is already dropping off in comparison to his 2-5 years IMO. He's got a knee that's not going to get better and relies on quickness.... which doesn't get quicker after 30.....

He's as good as he ever will be at 29. The only thing that can change is the team he's on to get him past where he stops each year. That doesn't change the value he has at all now does it?

HUH?

Good job you can highlight parts of a post.


Good job not knowing something so obvious as to think AI was "by far the better defender". That's like me saying Pau Gasol was a better defender than Kevin Garnett. But hey, if you want to think that was the case, all power to you.

Well shucks now I think Im gonna change my mind. I mean you compared Pau Gasol and Kevin Garnett which has to prove your point. Who care that KG built his rep on being a defensive 2-way player while Pau built his on being one of the best and smartest bigs in the game especially on the offensive side. Eh, I guess he isn't "ATHLETIC" so he must suck......wait, that brings a thought. There is a poster on this board who screams how great players are based on their athletic ability at the moment. He uses that to defend the notion that said player is a budding star and will be for years to come. Then when others who actually know a thing about basketball come in and refute it he gives some half-baked answer that essentially says what the other poster says. This kind of reminds me of that poster. AI was one of the quickest and toughest players in the game. CP3 fell down when Lil Chris farted next to him. AI on the back of his quickness and toughness got his team to the Finals and won a game against the then undefeated Lakers squad who went 16-1 and had Shaq and Kobe. Anyway, I got distracted, that poster claimed CP3 barely flopped, then said he did flop cause everyone else flops and then admitted that CP3 is one of the worse floppers in the league but,,,but,,,but,,but that doesn't count he is just reaching his prime so he will be the best ever. So I ask you being so wise in this: How do you combat that type of poster who obviously has an insane bias for a certain team, lets say the Clippers, and can stop from posting absolute asinine comments to defend said team like the Clippers?

CP3 is like Baron Davis with better handles. Oh, wait a minute--CP3 doesn't have handles, he carries the ball (NBA stopped calling that when they decided it was part of a modern version of the cross over dribble--). Who was better Tim Hardaway or CP3? Same answer. AI was a better player with a better motor and the ability to single handedly carry a team on his back to the Finals. CP3? Nope. :man5:

Oh, so i believe i watched more Chris Paul than you have, i watched almost all his games because of my friend's unfathomable love for him, which means i watched him ever since NO, so i guess i one-upped you in that department.

Eye test? i mean we told you we watch his game, stop using it as an excuse. I live in LA so do many here, we get all their local games. I dont watch any other sport, i only watch basketball, so if laker games aren't on i watch anything, which means clipper games or anything on NBATV


lol, this guy.


I brought up the bodybuilding forum because i wanted to show you we are not biased. Others see what he does, which is flop like a fish and having a weak mentality

if you even went to the thread, you could see there were quality posts and posters who have basketball knowledge.

NONE of my friends go to a basketball forum, are you to say they dont watch basketball? Like i said one of my friends love basketball and is a huge CP3 fan because he plays point as well, he played in leagues since he was little kid, and he probably could of made D2, possibly D1 for a lesser university if he tried hard enough. Im not saying this guys a basketball maestro, because he's not, I'm just showing how much he loves the game, dude used to sleep with a basketball when he was a kid, but he doesnt post in a basketball forum, so he doesnt watch any games right?

although its hard to have a real basketball conversation with others (which is why i come here), its damn basketball its not physics or rocket science. It really is not hard to analyze or read the game if you really love it and study it.


Gains a reputation no matter what the reality is? you agreed he flops like a fish not only on this post but in your previous posts, how many times are you going to contradict yourself?




when has anyone specifically said he flopped in those two series? i cannot recollect but for him to not flop at all during the series seems like a Huge improvement in his sportsmanship. Plus, how mad do you think his teammates will get if he flops and gets a no call? Either one its going to be a turn over or two its wasting time on the clock, not to mention its pretty damn dangerous as well.

nobody likes floppers, its a general consensus. Divac, Manu, Harden, gets heat for it because they flop, especially CP3 who brought the flopping culture to the clippers

Hey bro, you probably in your early 20's to late teens right? And probably taller than 5'8"? Don't worry bro. I'm 5'8" and about to turn 38. But I bet I school your [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] on the basketball court. I love schooling young bucks like you on the court.

what does playing basketball have to do anything about basketball analysis?

my friend i mentioned before that played in leagues and played a [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers.

He's usually the best player on the court anywhere when we play pick up, played PG since he was a child all the way through high school.

Lol. You're friend? You need your friend to tell you about this game of basketball which I love with a passion? You can't think for yourself?

i literally rofl at the bold

...........

i just said my friend can't analyze the game or players even though he played in leagues form a kid to high school. i have much more basketball knowledge than him, although he has more skills.

which is the exact opposite of what you just replied on.

first of all you addressed puffy, so "Like you said" doesnt pertain to me.

homie, your 5'8 and 170 pounds, which i can guess that youre fat since you said you lost "athleticism". I'm 5'9 and 150 yeah I'm skinny but i use my speed and deception (fakes, hesitations, cross overs, faking let or right in the post)

i dont want to get into an basketball Ego trip, because I played no where near the professional level or never played high school ball.

But i school dudes from that played leagues or some junior college ball, its not much but i do get intimidated since they actually ran drills and played in some regulation games, but some of then just straight dont have the knack for the game.

anyways i usually shoot over 50%, i have good hands to get steals, i can hit the turn around J turning left or right, step backs are second nature for me, i can split double teams, hit floaters/runners, streaky shooter , catch and shoot or off the dribble, and i know my spots on the floor can finish and contort my body if i have to, and i love to his game winners and there were times where i would hit ridiculous shots or just can't miss and people would just get pissed or say "wth"


again i really feel this paragraph above is a misconception, because I, in no way shape or form think I'm GOOD or GREAT. but this is just a response to saying i dont know anything or never play the actual game of ball.


i dont get where the personal attacks are coming from, i never said YOU sucked at basketball, i never said I was better than you. I dont make assumptions and if you're 38 i expected more maturity and intelligence.

i just stated that you keep changing the subject on CP3, which you have again. Instead of a basketball response you just, attacked me about my basketball game, even though i never played with you.


5'8 170 pounds and saying you lost 'athletcism'? no way you're going to keep up with me on the court when I'm running.

i accept your apology, i didnt see this when i posted my most recent response, but i feel like i need to make a statement to defend myself anyways.

I know you get a lot of heat for your love for CP3 and the clippers, but i would never personally attack you. Only attack you through basketball analysis and such, because isn't that what we're all here for?


yeah i did make a floater/teardop thread, because i shoot them. i was just curious about which type of shot i was shooting.

and I'm 24 by the way. if my response does seem immature at times, forgive me. I'm still fairly young.

It's been entertaining to read these rec game war stories and claims to fame, but what in the heynannynanny does any of that have to do with AI or CP3?

In other words, stop derailing the thread, and stop intentionally bypassing the site swear filter (this means you Let's Go Lakers).

you're 5'8 and 170 pounds? 38 years old? you're either buff or your fat.

what does playing basketball have to do anything about basketball analysis?

my friend i mentioned before that played in leagues and played a [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] loud of basketball can't analyze players for crap. He's usually the best player on the court anywhere when we play pick up, played PG since he was a child all the way through high school. Theres a reason why All NBA players can't be coaches or executives.


i dont think puffy actually said anything about playing you or your immense basketball skills



Lol. You're friend? You need your friend to tell you about this game of basketball which I love with a passion? You can't think for yourself? Like I said bro, you are probably some tall, lanky dude with no game or some fat dude who thinks he can play. Either way, you get on the court with me and sh't gets real. I am much slower than I used to be. I know first hand what age robs you of. But I have continued to improve my basketball skills over the years as i have lost my natural athletcism and I school 90% of young bucks like you who probably play NBA 2014k but don't know the actual game every week. It's as common occurence. Like taking candy from a baby.


i literally rofl at the bold

...........

i just said my friend can't analyze the game or players even though he played in leagues form a kid to high school. i have much more basketball knowledge than him, although he has more skills.

which is the exact opposite of what you just replied on.

Like I said, I apologize. My frustration was geared towards Puff and not you. That guy has been degrading me for years and I know for a fact that the guy is a layman when it comes to the sport. You just try to swallow your pride when he yaps but I guess at some point, i had to retaliate.

But as for the game itself, I don't know how good or bad your are. But I never back down from a one on one match. If you love the game as I do, in the purest sense, we got something in common.

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
