I feel sorry for the practice squad (Kobe - Celtics related)

I feel sorry for the practice squad (Kobe - Celtics related)

Postby JSM on Tue Jun 24, 2008 8:47 am

Boston Globe: USA Basketball also plans to invite Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and center Kendrick Perkins as well as ex-Celtic Al Jefferson to play on its select team that will scrimmage and practice against the national team in Las Vegas from July 21-24. The select team includes young NBA standouts who could be prospects for Team USA in the future.

With a good showing, Perkins, 23, and Rondo, 22, could be considered for the 2010 World Championships in Turkey and the 2012 Olympics in London.

The select team will learn offensive and defensive sets from US assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo before practicing and scrimmaging against the national team.

Perkins was excited about USA Basketball's interest and said he wants to participate. He averaged 6.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in 24.5 minutes per game during the regular season and was a major physical presence against the Lakers in the NBA Finals.

"It would be an honor to play against them," said Perkins. "I would love to play against them and hope to play for them one day. It's an honor. It will be fun."


Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll show some of the scrimmages on NBA TV or something. As soon as Kobe sees those two green goblins, he's going to go into domination mode. 100 points anyone?

No offense, but Rondo is a crap guard against zones and that's all he's gonna see.

Well, I can move on to another site. From kb24.com I realized getting attached to an online community is idiotic because at some point or another the thing will go away. So really, I could care the less. Plus, most people don't get sarcasm(not my fault their parents had bad genes and their intelligence isn't up to par) and the sig is sarcastic.

BB, we're not all stupid. Some of us (like myself) would like to understand the meaning behind the sig. Is it a reference to the Utah Jazz playoff game 11 years ago, when Kobe had three air balls in overtime? I've seen you explain it a different way in another thread, and you wrote it makes it easier to see who is a Kobe cultist. So could you please explain. I'm not going to sit here and tell you what to put in your sig. I'm simply looking for an explanation.

Can I ask a question to BB, without another member pointing out the obvious? Doesn't look like it.

No. Besides the obvious answer that is just a sig, I think I wrote the story behind it and why it amused me.

Admitting to using a sig to get a rise out of what you consider "Kobe zealots" is technically baiting, which is against forum rules.

Neither deserve to ever play for the olympic team. Rondo is the exact type of player that cant do well in an international game. Perkins is just a banger with little actual talent, we can do much better (Howard, Amare, Bynum)

I really want to know what the sig means as well.

Why show it off if you're not going to tell us why you have it?

Rondo can't hit an open jumpshot to save his life. And Perkins? What? What?

There isn't any reason for Kendrick Perkins to think he's going to play for team USA, he might never sniff the all-star game so please relax. Love the enthusiasm though.
