Read the last couple pages. Every single post is about people saying they dont care

The ONLY reason we don't care is because our 49ers are doing well...if we were having another ho-hum season, we'd all (myself included) be DYING for some NBA action...even then, what am I going to do come February?


Giants Spring training FTW

I was gonna say "FML, plan for Valentine's Day"... but Giants Spring training FTMFW!

I think I've received no fewer than 20 emails from pr reps pitching antitrust experts to talk about the NBA lockout.
Ced Ceballos hospitalized in Phoenix with heart problems, will undergo surgery.

Ever since Deron decided to not be fat anymore, he's been tearing it up for Besiktas. Dropped 50 in his last game in just 36 minutes.

^^ kinda shows you how important being in perfect top shape physically matters when you're playing at that high a level.

I mean, Deron wasn't obese or anything, but he was clearly packing on a few and he just looked absolutely awful...just garbage. And now he's back to being one of the best point guards in the world.


It also looks like in that clip that his coach gave him the green light lol

When he played for the Jazz he was always one, if not "the" best P.G. in the league. It wasn't until around early December and all this talk about him being the best P.G. in the league seemed to get to his head. He just walked around with a new arrogance and started playing horrible. The guy walked around like he was the greatest thing to ever happen to the world, and started complaining and crying over little things. Suddenly he was too good for the Jazz and Coach Sloan. Why do you think Jerry Sloan quite on this team? Because the Jazz thought they'd rather have a spoiled D. Will than a HOF coach.

Used to love D. Will, but towards the end of his tenure here in Utah, he changed. I think his new found arrogance was just too much, and that led to not only him playing worse, but the whole team falling apart.

Yeah Deron has not had a good year. I wonder where his career goes from here.

There's a lot of people claiming that Sloan's system made Deron look better than he actually was. Bringing up guys like Carlos Arroyo as an example.

I agree. I was gonna say this too

I honestly wouldn't care. I'm a Warriors fan. We can afford to wait it out..


Our time will come. Joe Lacob FTW.

I can't help but think of Coach Sing when Mark Jackson talks.. though I'm still on the wagon
Although we've been down this road before, I'll take whatever positive news I can get. From Steve Aschburner from nba.com....

Source invlvd w/ NBA talks told TNT's David Aldridge there's "genuine desire" to get a deal tonight. Two sides are "engaged," if not closer.

"WojYahooNBA: The NBA and players have reached an agreement on a deal, source says. The season will start on Dec. 25."
