    I don't know, Wes, but I'd sure feel better about the game if I had to pay face or over.

    "You wanna go to the game on Wednesday?"
    "Wednesday? That's a big Idol night! Who are they playing anyway?”
    “Memphis, I think. I hear they are good and it’s going to be the biggest game in Clippers history. Playoff Atmosphere in March, dude!”
    “Nah, I got Idol. Just dump them and hope someone picks 'em up.”

But yet Knight was the blunt of a lot of jokes and what not.
    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--ba...174058736.html

    Backward culture makes punch line of Brandon Knight for trying to stop DeAndre Jordan's dunk

    Outside the window within the coach's office, we could see Brandon Knight still on the court inside the Detroit Pistons' basketball facility. These had been hard training camp practices, and yet Knight still hadn't gone home. The Pistons' coach, Lawrence Frank, nodded toward him and shook his head.

    "He won't leave the gym," Frank told me on that September day. "We have to chase him out at night."

    When Knight had plantar fasciitis in the offseason, Frank had to confiscate Knight's sneakers so he couldn't sneak into the gym and play against doctor's orders.
    "This kid will get every ounce out of his ability," Frank promised.

    As the Los Angeles Clippers crushed the Pistons on Sunday, Knight did something that surprised no one within the franchise: Between DeAndre Jordan catching a lob and dunking on Detroit, Knight leaped and tried to stop him.

    For this, he's a punch line now. He's a joke. For everyone celebrating Jordan's fantastic lob dunk over a guard some 8 inches shorter and 80 pounds lighter, they've made Knight an object of ridicule. A widely followed parody account of comedian Kevin Hart tweeted that Jordan had been brought up on "charges of rape & aggravated assault against Brandon Knight," and tombstones declaring Knight dead were popping up on the Internet.

    The message is clear to players everywhere, on every level: Run away. Hide. Don't try to take the charge. Don't try to disrupt the play. There's no reward. This is how backward the basketball culture has become, how twisted the value system.

    This time, it was Brandon Knight. A year ago, it was the Clippers' Blake Griffin dunking on Kendrick Perkins. As a center, Perkins is bigger, stronger, and that makes Griffin's dunk more impressive. They gave Perkins this treatment, too. Even now, he still comes back for more.

    "If I was in the same position, in the same rotation, I'm going to jump again and again and again," Perkins told Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears. "A lot of people are afraid of humiliation or don't know how to handle embarrassment or would even get embarrassed. I don't care.

    "That's my job. How will my teammates look at me if next time I just back out of the way and just let him dunk when I'm supposed to be defensive-minded, a shot-blocker? That would be a coward move on me.
    "He'd just have to dunk on me again."

    Jordan made a spectacular play. No one will soon forget it. So congratulations and all. Jordan has a $43 million contract and yet still doesn't have one offensive move, an ability to score outside the paint. Yes, he can leap, dunk on little guys. And somehow that makes him an achiever in the sport now. After this, perhaps even a folk hero.

    For Brandon Knight, who had the guts to stand in there, there were prominent people writing that he had been raped and assaulted and killed on Sunday night in Los Angeles. Eight inches shorter and 80 pounds lighter, Knight understood the right thing is seldom ever the most popular. Brandon Knight didn't run and hide, didn't spare himself the humiliation.
    The culture of this sport has never been so backward, never so twisted. Hell of a dunk out of DeAndre Jordan, but maybe the wrong player gets the ovation.

    okay, we're in like flynn for tonight. Look for me wearing a red long-sleeve Clip shirt five rows behind the basket (http://www.ebay.com/itm/121080248112...84.m1497.l2649 ). Paid $85 each for normally $135 tix and proud of it, Wes, you big cocksucker. Are you really calling yourself a beach-like playground?

    The only reason your team is relevant is because David Stern is an unscrupulous, meddling piece of shit. If your team ever wins a title the Clippers should erect a bronze statue of the miserable little troll outside of Staples. He's the biggest benefactor your team has ever known.

    Those are great seats. Enjoy the best three ring circus of sausage races, teeshirt cannons, and wedding DJ atmosphere the NBA has to offer.

    black woman, with her boyfriend, in the seat in front quarter cocks me saying "Will you stop touching me?" and I said "Where?" and she said "my booty". I had spoken with my friend about my knee possibly touching her ass, but I never did and I think she just heard me.They didn't come back after halftime.

    I attend the Knicks @ Warriors game on Monday night and, just my luck, I ended up sitting next to some New Yorker... I'm sure my RUN TMC shirt let him know who really runs shit. I'll in the same seats for Bulls @ Warriors tonight.

    Clock is stopped at 4.5. Pacers make free 2nd free throw. Clock starts about 1 second early. Nash takes it down and scores as the buzzer goes off in his hands. Had clock started on-time, the points would have counted and the half would have been over.

    Officials call: don't count the points, give the Lakers the ball back with 1 second on the clock. Lakers don't convert.

    The Lakers are probably the most beset-upon team in the league. Can they ever catch a break?

    He could have given Deng the night off. Noah and Boozer absolutely manhandled the Warriors.

    Honestly how stupid can you be. It's a JR Smith joke video. They're not "claiming" anything.

    Hoping Utah loses tonight. It would give the Lakers more cushion to see how they will perform without Kobe. Time is not on their side.

    Got Bobcats +6.5/Warriors +8.5/Suns -1 on a three game parlay tonight.

    In other news, glad there are no Kings fans here. Late in the fourth quarter Clipper announcer Mike Smith stated that “this CP/Jamal/Barnes/DJ/Blake unit is the second most efficient in the league” right before the Kings called for the highly successful, and highly embarrassing for the Clips, hack-a-Dj strategy. VDN kneeled down to his assistant coaches asking “what do we do?”. It was two minutes of the most cringe worthy, inefficient basketball I’ve ever seen. Clippers looked like fools and it’s no wonder the Kings players and fanbase lapped up a victory.
