    In retrospect, saying Boston was clearly the better team might be overstating it. They had better players and were the more talented team, as teams they were pretty well matched, thats why their series always went to 6-7 games.

    However, the point still stands that better talent doesnt always win.

    a: We are talking football
    b: you are clueless

    Do you need me to send you some info about zone blocking ? Perhaps a call from an NFL scout, player, or former head coach would help you.

    Agreed, I just don't agree with the Phoenix-San Antonio analogy.

    The 1980s Lakers. "Showtime", as they called it. Run and gun, fastbreak all day, and when they got stopped, throw it in to Kareem and let him dominate with the sky hook and his unmatched basketball wit.

    What's your point?

    Michael Cooper, Magic, James Worthy, and Kurt Rambis, had nothing to do with these things I guess.

    It wasnt like Kareem exactly ran the floor well. :bang2:

    Read up son, you need it:

    Please, tell me where in there it states that it is made for the big run or that it is not a team blocking effort? IN fact, it eerily resembles my post on the subject....hmmmm

    Bye now

    Ever heard of the half-court offense?

    I played organized basketball from the time I was 5 to now, please dont lecture me on the intricacies of basketball offense.

    You expect me to worry about outsiders when I have insiders ? Lets think about this for a sec...

    And that article/piece has not been fully read by you. Go back and try again.

    And dont call me son. You dont even remember Kareem playing. If anything you should call me Daddy.

    That seemed like a lecture ? Kids nowadays.

    Basketball guru yet, obviously doesnt understand that Kareem was past his prime. Again it doesnt add up.

    Don't forget Byron Scott, Jamaal "Silk" Wilkes, Mychal Thompson, Bob McAdoo, Sam Perkins, and Norm Nixon.

    I miss those days.

    Wow.


    I just read the title of this thread, and then clicked "last page".


    How the freakin' hell does a thread that is suppose to be about Emmitt vs Barry, end up talking about Kareem?


    By the way, the greatest basketball player of all time is Magic Johnson.


    Notice I said "Basketball player", not Scorer/rebounder/defender etc...


    Oscar Robertson is right up there too, and of course, Jordan as well. No doubt Kareem Abdul Jabbar is up there as well.

    Radio thinks those guys would all be bench warmers on the Celtics.

    Radio thinks Kareem was a better low post threat at the end of his career than Olajuwon was in his prime.

    It's wierd, cuz you'd expect teams/sports to IMPROVE over the years, but basketball now isn't as good as it was in the 80s.


    Football know isn't as good as it was in the early to mid 90s.


    Probably for different reasons, but it's still true.

    I miss the games of the Showtime Lakers versus the Nuggest with Fat Lever, Alex English and Kiki Vandeweighe. Or the Celtics with Bird, McHale and Parrish. Or the Sixers with Cheeks, Dr. J, and Malone.

    The NBA today bores me.
