    Wow. Could think of about a million other ways to spend my free time.. Gasol has definitely taken over the throne for Long.

    I wanted to watch Game 4 since Toronto has taken a 2-1 lead and is threatening to dethrone Golden State. I never knew Gasol is such a cuck. He has always been a very good player. Sounds like he has Stockholm Syndrome, like Dirk.

    What a disappointment...

    It is disappointing as he was one of my favorite players for his hard-nosed style and fantastic low post defense. I’ll always root for him on the court but beyond that we are staunch enemies.

    It’s sad that I’m not even 1% Spanish but I care for the survival and wellbeing of his people more than he does...

    Just call me the "Marquis de Shadow" but I am pleased that the "official word" is Kevin Durant has suffered a ruptured Achilles. Been in my usual foul mood lately and this is the best news I have heard lately.

    I am probably in a distinct minority hoping for serious leg type injuries for star "athletic" black players but after years of deprivation it comes naturally to me. Smothered to death every year with black players taking center stage I say the more black "stars" that get injured it helps open the way for more white players to emerge but who the hell am I kidding. That pool is pretty much empty. Still one less black media hero is one less black media hero.

    The more the merrier I say so here is a toast to some more key black players going down with year long plus injuries. To hopefully pave the way for more white players. It is like get out of the damn way and give white players a chance for a change dammit.

    This is what happens to people like me who has had it up to here in black player overload. Next stop insanity perhaps? Not a pretty attitude but I am being dead honest.

    But being the compassionate kindly human being that I am I don't want anyone suffering brain/spinal injuries. See I can be sort of nice depending on the nature of the injury. Ha.

    I'm with you, I'll draw the line with serious injuries as you've mentioned above. But it's hard to feel bad for Durant and his if you can't beat em join em attitude. Yeah he ruptured his Achilles but the 30 million he made this year is a nice consolation prize while he's rehabbing. Not to mention he'll be a free agent next year and make a **** load of money and likely be in another uniform.

    Someone should ask Greg Oden if he's "heart-broken" over Durant's injury? Oden was picked ahead of Durant, and basically did not even have a NBA career due to injuries. At least Durant had 12 full seasons before he faced serious injury.

    In addition to playing close to 12 full seasons, he's played in 139 playoff games and dozens more Team U.S.A and Olympic type events. That's the equivalent of 14 years in the NBA. He might only be 31, but in terms of "wear and tear" on his body he's closer to a typical 35 year old (or older) NBA player? Also, unlike LeBron Jimmy, he's very tall and skinny. Did anyone think Durant's feet/lower extremities could hold up forever on such a frame, with skinny legs and thin ankles? Any surprise his feet finally betrayed him?

    I used to think Durant was a decent fellow and would not have wished him any harm, until he started getting all political and in-your-face left-wing like Curry and Kerr. Heck with Durant, I hope his NBA career is over. Or, at the very least, he becomes a modern day Bernard King, who hung around several years as nothing more than a washed-up has been. Too bad for all the DWF's all-over America wishing and hoping he'd join their team in free agency. I can't think of anything more silly, than retarded whites crying over the fact that some left-wing, anti-white bigot (that makes millions playing a game) is hurt.


    P.S: While I'm at it, I can honestly say I could care less about (fellow political lefty) David Ortiz's plight. If it wasn't for Steroids, only me, Shadowlight and a couple others on this site might even (barely) know his name, after the Twins cut the overweight slug! Ortiz was so talented, that after leaving the Twins the Red Sox would not even give him a guaranteed contract.....Also, if Ortiz is going to cheat on his Shark (wife), he might consider not messing with the girlfriends of Dominican drug lords?

    In another mood boosting moment for me Klay Thompson tore his ACL during the game last night.. Two star Golden State players bit the dust here.

    The satisfaction of them losing is slightly offset by the fact that I don't much like Toronto either.

    Exactly like Larry Bird's Celtics this Golden State "dynasty" sits at three championships with two losses in the finals.

    The hope here is this annoying team never wins an0ther one and based on the long term injuries of two of their stars. On paper at least this looks like the beginning of the end.

    Even Steph Curry, apart from a couple of explosive games, wasn't shooting the lights out. He appears to have slipped a bit which is fine by me since I can't stand him. But he is one of the best shooters I have ever seen in the NBA.

    When HC Kerr was a TV broadcaster he was defiantly caste. This was before he became a caste slanted head coach media hero so needless to say it was nice to see him and his team go down in flames.

    Let's start a riot......https://www.cp24.com/news/one-perso...eets-as-fans-celebrated-raptors-win-1.4466399

    This is after the conference championship celebration where a wigger stabbed https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hami...bing-of-man-celebrating-raptors-win-1.5159221a reveler to death because an ex-girlfriend was hanging out with him in a impromptu street party.......

    As for the decline of Golden State it's real and inevitable as they have played the equivalent of an extra season over their 5 year run of finals and championships, their core players are all in their late 20's to early 30's and aging in the forms of breaking down is part of the natural cycle of players careers.

    As for the individual players Green is a talented A-hole agitator who is dirty, Curry while having unreal range on his three, really doesn't play tight defense, IMO the wiggery Klay Thompson is a better overall guard as his defense is much better and his shooting has a shade less range but is more consistent IMO.

    For this team to have an extended run they will need to inject new life in the team with quality young players like the Spurs did with Leonard, but the Warriors haven't done that so far as the bench aside from Iggy is very mediocre.

    Yes Durant in OKC was a quiet guy who seemed likeable the Golden State version seemed to have lost his boyish looks and is getting technical fouls for mouthing off all the time and seems to be in a perpetual foul mood.

    The only time he has seemed like his OKC persona was when he has been felled by potential career threatening injuries and his face had the docile look he always had in OKC.......
