    Re: The Basketball Thread

    yeah... looks like it
    @mcten now
    Kobe has tears in his eyes and is on crutches. "Terrible. This is a terrible feeling." He says he knows it's a torn Achilles

    damn... playing trough so many injuries, sometimes you forget that the guy still is human

    Kobe on facebook
    Quote Quote:
    This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I've done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I'm supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that??
    I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that
    was. Maybe this is how my book
    ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me...Then again maybe not! It's 3:30am, my foot feels like dead weight, my head is spinning from the pain meds and I'm wide awake. Forgive my Venting but what's the purpose of social media if I won't bring it to you Real No Image?? Feels good to vent, let it out. To feel as if THIS is the WORST thing EVER! Because After ALL the venting, a real perspective sets in. There are far greater issues/challenges in the world then a torn achilles. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, find the silver lining and get to work with the same belief, same drive and same conviction as ever.
    One day, the beginning of a new career journey will commence. Today is NOT that day.
    "If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey for the bear". Ive always loved that quote. Thats "mamba mentality" we don't quit, we don't cower, we don't run. We endure and conquer.
    I know it's a long post but I'm Facebook Venting LOL. Maybe now I can actually get some sleep and be excited for surgery tomorrow. First step of a new challenge.
    Guess I will be Coach Vino the rest of this season. I have faith in my teammates. They will come thru.
    Thank you for all your prayers and support. Much Love Always.
    Mamba Out

    "Mamba mentality" ...

    The achilles injury is a weird one. Oftentimes it's prime to just pop and someone can do it just carrying something up the stairs. That's probably what happened with him, as no real trauma went on or anything.

    I think he thought Harrison Barnes hit him because of the pop. He was confused. I've never heard an achilles rupture in person, but I've heard it's really loud

    yeah, on the post game interview he said that he heard a pop and asked if Barnes hit him, Barnes said that he didn't.. he tried to walk, couldn't feel his heel and knew that it was his achilles

    Re: The Basketball Thread

    So the Playoff Matchups been set.

    WEST:
    (1) Thunder vs. (8) Rockets
    (2) Spurs vs. (7) Lakers
    (3) Nuggets vs. (6) Warriors
    (4) Clippers vs. (5) Grizzlies

    EAST:
    (1) Miami vs. (8) Milwaukee
    (2) New York vs. (7) Boston
    (3) Indiana vs. (6) Atlanta
    (4) Brooklyn vs. (5) Chicago

    What's your bet?

    Kind of surprised at how the Lakers even got the 7th seed when just weeks ago they barely even made it to the playoffs plus the absence of Kobe. And now they're gonna face off with (my) Spurs. It's kinda hard to even give a biased forecast seeing that their last couple of games suck (even those games where they won). Hopefully Pop can beat the sense out of the rest players since as what he said a couple of days ago, "Tim’s really the only guy on the team that played like somebody who wants to win a championship." And well, here's hoping T-Mac could lend a hand for the Spurs to win that oh-its-been-so-long 5th championship.

    Re: The Basketball Thread

    Memphis surprised this year?
    I think that almost everyone was expecting it from them.. girt, great defense, bullying and pounding the ball on the paint
    The Clippers started hot, but they cooled down on the last quart of the season

    Boston is too banged up to win the series, they are already without Rondo and Garnett isn't healthy.
    Houston has no chance, but it should be fun to watch Harden shooting the lights out in one game

    HOU 98 - OKC 120
    OKC 124 - HOU 94
    OKC 119 - HOU 122

    Clippers - Grizz during the season: 3-1 for the CLippers, so what make u think the grizz can beat the Clippers?
    MEM 92 - LAC 101
    LAC 99 - MEM 73
    MEM 96 - LAC 85
    LAC 91 - MEM 87

    Cs -knicks : 3-1 for the knicks
    BOS 102 - NYK 96
    NYK 89 - BOS 86
    NYK 100 - BOS 85
    BOS 89 - NYK 108

    Lakers - Spurs: 2-1 for the Spurs, all of them kinda close. but yeah no kobe this time
    SAS 84 - LAL 82
    LAL 105 - SAS 108
    SAS 86 - LAL 91

    Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose Lawsuit

    CHICAGO – A 25 year old Peoria Illinois man filed a lawsuit Thursday against Chicago Bulls Superstar Derrick Rose. Matthew Thompson, a self-described long-time Bulls fan, and electrician claims Rose missing the entire 2012-2013 NBA regular season has caused him to have mental breakdowns and emotional distress, which ultimately led to obesity issues.

    The former MVP is still recovering from an ACL surgery which has caused him to miss the entire season, his status for the playoffs as of Thursday is still unknown.

    According to reports, Thompson claims Rose displayed negligent behavior by refusing to return to the court, despite having been cleared by team doctors. He blames his health issues on the MVP’s refusal to return.

    No word if Peoria County Officials will take this lawsuit seriously
