Bibby deserves a ring.
Peja deserves one more.
Neither of them "deserve" a ring. They couldn't even make it to the finals with the Kings, and especially Peja who continuous got overwhelmed in the playoffs.
On the other hand, Lebron and Dirk deserve the ring - since they have been two best players in the playoffs so far, and had multiple memorable performances in the last month or so.
Believe it or not there are more than 1 player on each team and fans from around the NBA are rooting for certain players because of what they did with other teams and they actually like them. It doesnt matter that they werent HOF calibre players, people are actually fans of players because of loyalty for what they did for their team.
Did you even watch the 2002 WCF???
Are you talkin' about rooting for certain players or a player deserving a ring? Two different things. Bibby deserving a ring is a joke, just as much as Peja deserving a ring. Both should be thankful and count themselves extremely lucky to have an opportunity to play in the Finals.
...and no, I didn't watch 2002 WCFs. Why? What happened?
Ouch that's mean.... We should hop on that MIA banwagon like you
Haha...a Kings fan asked if I watched 2002 WCF. I googled it, and that's what came up.
...oh I'm not on Miami's bandwagon. I'm on Lebron James bandwagon, have been for years now. D-Wade has been my second favorite player in the league for years now...followed him since his Marquette days.
Go heat and LBJ on his way.
What team do you like then? Whatever team LBJ goes on... umm, sounds like a bandwagon fan . Don't trip, MIA has a bunch of those. Sorry man, but I gotta be honest, that youtube post did piss me off. I like one team and don't switch up my teams. That game hurt A LOT.
My team is the Warriors and I always root for them. My favorite player is Lebron James and I always root for him. I'm not one of those who get offended by bandwagon fan tag...but in this case - it makes no sense. I root for a player, you root for a team...regardless of what. I've been a fan of his since his first game in the NBA. But hey, if you want to call me a bandwagon fan, that's fine by me. I don't personally care.
Btw...I've a long history of doing it this way. I was a huge Reggie Miller fan and rooted for Pacers till he was there. I'm a huge Messi fan, and though I was a Barcelona fan before he was there, but now I'm a HUGE HUGE FC Barcelona fan. I started watching baseball in mid-90s, only because of Barry Bonds...TO was one of my favorite players, and though I didn't root for the Cowboys, I did root for him to do well, and his other teams.
As far as 2002 WCF goes, I was rooting for the Kings in that series...but when someone questions if you even watched the series, I felt that was the fitting reply.
