Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?
On dirty players.. I don't look at them today like past eras, say a Rodman and Lambeer, even Bruce Bowen and Reggie Miller. Bruce putting his foot down underneath jump shooters, Reggie with his leg kick. Those were dirty tactics. Guys like Wade and Rondo get caught in the moment a lot of times. Artest was dirty, seemingly he's cleaned up. KG is a fake tough guy trash talker. Just raps and uses his physicality all game. Not that dirty.
There was a time that you'd be scared to play certain teams, you knew someone was getting dropped. Ejected. Fined. Suspended. Something was gonna happen certain nights. Not even close these days. Guys today get labeled dirty for a few incidents. All in all, they're just great players who play tough and get fired up at times.
