I don't understand why he'd stop the pre-game dunks. It gives something for the fans to cheer about. I'd only do it at home, just cause

This is what he said in the article:

Quote:
James has been executing contest-worthy dunks during warm-ups, but has been unwilling throughout his career to participate in the league's dunk contest during All-Star Weekend despite pressure from fans and former players. "Maybe I should stop because it's making a lot of people mad about what I do," James said after he scored a season-high 40 points and had a career-high 16 assists in Tuesday's double-overtime win against Sacramento. "They're like, 'Well, if you can do it in warm-ups, why don't you [want to] be in the dunk contest?' Stop it.' "

He's right though. People just need to leave him alone about the dunk contest. Like I said, it means nothing anymore and he's not going to do it. Just because he does certain dunks shouldn't translate into the dunk competition. He does come off as somewhat of a baby, but I'm sure he's just sick and tired of hearing about the dunk comp.

Kyrie is out tonight. Should be a W.

Bargnani is just awful out there. He isn't even an NBA caliber player at this point.

Stop being a baby and get your head out of your ***.

Lucas, Anderson, Bargnani and Fields have come in and just killed our momentum.

Bargs has been horrid to watch this year. No effort and no desire and getting paid 10 million. Sickening.

Wow, I just read an article on how Lebron is having a better season than Jordans best season in 88/89. If Lebron can win 2 more MVP's and another couple championships. I really think you can make the argument that he is better than Michael Jordan.

Why does Anderson continue to get minutes? He is horrible.

Kills any kind of offensive flow we might have.

I don't see how a bunch of fans can see how horrible Anderson is, but a coach in the NBA continues to play him.

I don't pretend like I know more about the sport than Casey, but dear ****, this should be obvious. Why not develop Ross or play Fields?

Why isn't Valanciunas closing out 4th quarters?

I never thought I'd want to see Landry Fields on the floor as much as I want to right now.

Just get Chuckerson out of there.

what makes it more scary is this bit from the last chat on Hoopsworld by the Raptors writer, Stephen Brotherston:

Alan is on a 1-yr deal. Casey wants him back. Id expect hell return

LOL at keeping Bargnani to build up his trade value.

He must really love Toronto, because he isn't going anywhere the way he is playing.

Hilarious to see all the crap bags that are getting playing time over Ross... especially when they are all sucking. A whopping 8 ****ing points from the bench with Bargnani/Anderson/Lucas for some reason getting playing time over Ross. Hey Casey, if the bench is sucking, why not... you know, change it up? Maybe use Ross who might give the team a spark. Doesn't hurt to try when the rest of the bench isn't doing anything anyways, right?

Stick a fork in this team. They are done.

I just watch the standings in hopes we lose our 1st this year and that we're high enough to lose it. Losing these last two really hurt.

I miss Calderon. I like him running the floor over Lowry.

Can we get him back in the off-season?

That would just create issues again between Lowry and Calderon. BC needs to stick with a clear number 1, and it looks like his choice is Lowry.

Or maybe his choice was to get an awesome play like Gay and bring Jose back. I can hope!

If Bargs gets amnestied he is in conversation for worst first overall pick, worse than Kwame Brown. What a scrub just get him out, he'll only poison our minds with those primo pasta things!
