More embarrassing, getting crossed over or dunked on?

Knew this was a Net loss so I wasn't expecting much. The two teams from the west they cannot beat if their lives depended on it are oddly enough Golden State and Minnesota. I just hope they can bounce back.

Crossed over IMO, but it also depends on the nature of the dunk.

Like what Felton did to Haslem last night was really embarrassing.

The thing with getting dunked on is that at times you can get "posterized" as a result of playing hard defense in the paint. It's the guys that take measures to avoid getting posterized that are the real embarrassments.

Agreed completely with this post. Usually getting crossed over is bad. Another thing I used to find embarrassing at least for Yao Ming was when players who were several inches shorter than he was just shat on him when in came to dunking in his face. I mean everybody dunked on him. I think even Iverson could've.

No one blames the fans for being excited. The attention from the media, the statements from some of their fans, and their lack of championships in the past make it really easy for people to laugh it off and dismiss them.

I like the way they're playing, but in the East, it doesn't really matter until April.

I doubt anyone else even watched it, but the first 2 minutes of the 2nd quarter between Sac and Orl was the ugliest basketball I've ever seen.

Jeff Van Gundy admits to having flu like symptoms and said he called the league just in case he couldn't make it so he wouldn't get fined.

Lakers tried to make it a game at the end but can't complete and OKC holds onto the win. Van Gundy can go suck on some cough drops now

Maybe Stern should cancel the season to make the Lakers look good

That was a fun Warrior game to watch tonight. Lee, Curry, Greene and Jack were on fire in the second half and man Lee just comes across as a great leader. It's fun watching a good basketball team for a change and I think the Warriors are going to stay this good all year round.

I think it's stupid, it's not basketball, and it makes the games less enjoyable for everyone but the only reason Stern is making a big deal out of this is because it involves Howard and the Lakers. Stern doesn't want a big market and big money team like the Lakers to struggle because of this.

It's a basketball game so you should have to stop the other team without using stupid tactics like this. On the other hand, professional basketball players who are making millions should be able to hit a free throw.

I hate when teams do this but my hate for the Lakers is too strong. Hopefully the competition committee rejects the rule change if Stern proposes it.

Now that Yao Ming is out of the league, who do you guys think gets dunked on the most? Jermaine O'Neal used to always get dunked on but that's probably changed.

Lee is very underrated. Although he is not a great defensive presence, he is a great scorer. It will be interesting to see if pairing up with Bogut can make a dynamic front court.

Agreed. I don't know why Stern is making a mountain out of a molehill on this one.

I did that and still missed it somehow.


Are you trying to say there can be enough JaVale McGee?

Why were Rubio's numbers in Euro so mediocre?
