This. Should've been a tech 100%. Demarcus cousins would've been throw out of the game and suspended for 2 full seasons

now Lebron and Bosh coming in to close it out




LOL yeah right

You don't get technical for hanging on the rim during timeouts. Lol


it was at the end of a play not a timeout



Are you sure?

what if I swore out the refs and threw a chair on the court during a timeout. Would I not get a technical?

Do players get suspended for leaving the bench after timeouts?

Millsap had 7 threes that night? Where was that when he was in Utah?

I remember him having a huge game in Miami couple of year ago. He went for 40 pts or something like that. But yea...he has become a reliable 3-point shooter in Atlanta and I have a lot of respect for players who learn new tricks after coming into the league and play both ends for their team.


Paul was awesome, I really wish he would've stayed in Utah b/c he always went 110% no matter how undersized he was against his opponents. That Jazz/Heat game from a couple years ago was incredible. I was going nuts at the end of that game.

He was hanging on it during the game and then a timeout was called and he proceeded to hang on it. Should've been a tech

This 100%. It was right after the play.

We all know 4ML is a lebron fanboy, but how the f**k is anybody going to argue that shouldn't have been a T?

lol...it doesn't matter...it's not like Miami won the game by a point. I'm not sure why me being a fan boy has anything to do with it. If it was Kobe hanging on the rim in the same situation I would have said the same. It's clear in the video that D'Antoni called the TO right after the dunk and therefore ref decided not to call it. But whatever...I'll just agree to disagree and let's move on. It's not a big deal.
Cousins 12th among front court players in all star voting?
...which is why I said he won't make the all-star team. Duh

The all star voting is booty. If he keeps it up he should be a first team all nba center but won't make the all star game

You won't get an argument from me on that. He should be at least 2nd team all-nba. Offensively...he's better than any Center in the game (and it's not close). Defensively...he has long ways to go but is still a young player and it's tough to bring intensity on the defensive end when no one else on the team is playing much defense either. IMO - Dwight and Hibbert may get more votes or whatever...but I'll take Cousins over both of those dudes.

All star voting is lame. It's popularity contest and isn't based on your play this year but also past years. That's why fan voting is limited to starters and you expect the coaches will do the right thing and pick the guys who deserve based on this year but that doesn't happen often either. They pick their own dudes. Vogel (not singling him out...all coaches do this) is already talking about David West and Lance Stevenson as all-star players lol. Last year Spols moved Chris Bosh into starting line-up - even though other players were more deserving.

So, with that in mind - I left Cousins off the all-star team. I highly doubt Brooks or Stotts (Pop is ineligible to coach all-star game) will pick Cousins over Ibaka or Lilliard. I hope I'm wrong.

I love DMC but if he ever wants to start an all star game he needs to learn how to play defense. Currently, he is horrendous on defense and that's one of the main reasons our record is garbage. But he does deserve to be an off the bench all start for sure
