BOLT

As for the Derrick Rose news; I will not be commenting on it. I refuse to make any official comments at this time.

Not looking forward to playing the Celtics tonight.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

Great to see Brandon Bass playing like he did last year. I'm gonna take a guess and say the reason he struggled so much is because of him being on edge and nervous about Sullinger taking his starting job. Now that Sully's out for the year, he knows his job security as a starter is intact.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

notorious this isn't aim at you btw, but I'm just going to point it out.

I absolutely hate when people give players shitty excuses as to why they were playing poorly during any stretch. it isn't reasonable to give an athlete that is paid millions and expected to play at the highest standard some type of weak excuse. Yes you never know when you might benched, or traded, or cut, etc, unless you're a superstar, but that's no reason to fuck up what you're expected to do. Over the last few years we've had plenty of promising shooters come to the Lakers that were supposed to help us spread the floor. They all shot well before coming and some, like Barnes(he did fine on the Lakers too, I really liked him tbh), have done well after leaving, but for some reason they all fail where we need them most. As an athlete you can't let pressures like this get to you and you have to have that mentality that you're out there to fulfill your role, whatever role that might be.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

Some players have legit confidence issues. Some people can't handle the stress of not knowing if this is your last game with the team, if this is their last time getting significant minutes. Some people aren't as strong-minded as others. Them making millions doesn't change that.

I just struggle to see how someone whose in the nba can have confidence issues. The NBA is probably the hardest sport to actually get a role in seeing as how small the teams are and the starting lineups are even smaller. If you're playing you're obviously important so I see no reason for them to have confidence issues.

I understand having to move and stuff like that can be taxing on people, but as a player you should have the utmost confidence in your abilities otherwise you WILL fail. Confidence is the key in any and all sports, because to get this far you've obviously got the talent. Now all you need is the worth ethic and confidence.

It's been said countless times, but Kobe was never the most gifted athlete. Other players were far more athletic and even talented than him, but he worked his fucking ass off like no one else before him has(yeah, I'll include Jordan) because he wanted it more. Which is why I'll always respect Kobe as an athlete and why he'll probably remain my favorite athlete of all time.


I should make an endless list as to the reasons why I hate Howard.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

A win from my boys tonight would be nice. Been annoyed with the Clippers loss, but EXTREMELY pissed with the Wizards loss. So far so good in the first quarter but a long way to go yet.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

Yes I'm aware that it's the NBA and you need confidence to succeed, but like I said before, not everyone is the same. Not everyone is Kobe. You have guys like a Jeff Green or an Andris Biedrins who have confidence issues and struggle to play great consistently. You have guys like pre-2012 LeBron that have no confidence during crunch time because they're scared to mess up and be scrutinized. According to Dwight Howard, the reason why he struggles with his FT's so much is because of confidence issues. Look at Pau when all of his trade rumors were going strong and how shaken up he was mentally.

You need confidence to succeed and have a healthy career but some guys just aren't as confident and strong-minded as others.

but like I don't know HOW. It's always been easy to judge as a fan and I know it isn't fair to do so, but I just don't see HOW. these guys are fucking amazingly talent, gifted with excellent bodies, and have unreal athleticism. how can you possibly not be confident in yourself. obviously it comes down to some psychological issues, but it just annoys me. although Kobe's confidence annoys everyone else.

Pau never lost his confidence, he lost his role and ability to work in the post due to dumb coaching. Two posts has worked before and can work in today's nba, you just need a fucking intelligent coach that knows what he's doing which we apparently don't have. We really should have looked for some old school coach that had run offenses with two post players in the past, even if he wasn't a huge name, as that's what we desperately need. oh how I wish we had SHAW, the triangle would only be so perfect.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

I read a couple weeks ago that Kupchak wanted to hire Rick Adelman to replace Phil but Buss wouldn't let him do it and that hiring Brown was Buss's idea and that Kupchak didn't like it that much.
