    Those wacky nuts in Orlando continue their anti-TMac campaign. The main article deals with a Dwight Howard/Amare comparison, then the writer goes into his other NBA thoughts, where he somehow twists a suns are entertaining comment into a we got over on TMac ending.

    I wonder how these guys manage to stand up. They must be fall down dizzy from all the bash TMac spin they work into their articles. Sure is funny how they're supposedly happy to be rid of him, but can't seem to stop writing about him.:D


    Here's the clip:

    Although the Suns lost in the Western Conference Finals, they may have had a positive impact on the league's future, proving high-octane basketball is effective and entertaining. It's the opposite of what Coach Jeff Van Gundy has done to the Houston Rockets with Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady.

    Somebody e-mail this tard an animated .gif of the T-Mac dunk over Bradley. Yeah, that's low-octane basketball, alright.

    right so Van Gundy's rockets are not entertaining and not good for the leagues' future?? last time checked the rockets had the most hit site as well as generating millions from Chinese fans. i guess that must really be bad for the NBA....:rolleyes:

    They're acting like a jealous ex-gf. Let's stop taking her calls and maybe she'll go away or just entertain the hell out of us.

    If JVG hurt the NBA by winning 51 games and taking a legit WC power to 7 seven games and not shlepping in with 30-something wins and get his r****ded GM fired, who am I to judge? :D

    San Antonio Spurs : 96.19 ppg
    Houston Rockets : 95.07 ppg

    Yes, that 1 ppg higher octane just slaughtered the Suns.

    Detroit Pistons : 93.32 ppg
    Houston Rockets : 95.07 ppg

    Wow, what octane is Detroit runnin' because they'll be meeting the Spurs in the Finals.

    Defensive octane gets you a ring.

    But what would Orlando know? They cultivate mega-stars for the rest of the league and hire hockey numbnuts to run basketball organizations.

    Number of high-octane teams in this year's finals: zero.
    Number of entertaining teams in Orlando, Florida, that made the playoffs: zero.

    It's obvious this guy is just plain bitter and why wouldn't he be? It is completely obvious that we got the MUCH BETTER end of the deal and it seems that Wisebrod just came and destroyed the team, then quit.

    Talk about randomly throwing in the Rockets into that equation. Totally lame.

    What I just e-mailed to him.....

    Do me a favor and add up all the championships these supposed "effective and entertaining" teams like Phoenix, Dallas, Sacramento, Seattle, etc. have won. Soo what's the grand total? 0. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

    Detroit and San Antonio, two real championship contenders and past winners, will be playing in the NBA Finals this year. To all the clueless pundits like you that would call a series like that boring, you're a complete fool---but, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. After all, it's not like the city of Orlando knows anything about winning championships anyways.

    The Rockets, under Van Gundy, are building their team in similar ways to the above mentioned and will only continue to improve. Expect to be hearing plenty from the next great "ineffective and boring" team for years to come. But it's not like your example is even really about the Rockets anyways---just another bitter Orlando sportswriter who feels its their duty to take weak pot shots at T-Mac.

    You better pray I don't take your job someday.
