gtfo. Showtime is a style of play, and it's not exclusively a Laker term, even though I liked some players on those teams. Sorry I took your first choice of name, but it's not misleading at all, because I'm not pretending to be a fan of Kobe, or Nash.

Whatever, you're name is misleading and you know it! Hell, when I hear showtime, the first thing that comes to mind is Magic Johnson, who happened to play for.... the LAKERS!

The term "showtime" has been used for exciting basketball. It has been used to describe a team's style, or even single plays. It does NOT exclusively belong to the Lakers. So just because you think of the showtime lakers when you hear it doesn't mean I'm deliberately trying to make everybody think I like the Lakers. And as I said, I did like some players on those showtime laker teams, but it doesn't make me a fanatic Laker supporter. So the name is only misleading to retards.

If he plays on a contending team, he's going to win an NBA title.

Dirk is a better player than Prime Allen and Prime Pierce. He deserves to win an NBA title in the near future.

Agreed. As long as Stern is still in power, a German superstar has no chance, because Jewcifer will screw with him.

Yea, but they were right in the sense because they said that by taking into account KG as the #1 option.

KG was the most consistent Celtic throughout the Playoffs and he led the team in scoring in the Playoffs.

I think it's a perfectly reasonable assumption to guess that you're a Laker fan if no one knew anything about you. No, the term "showtime" does not belong to the Lakers but I'd venture to guess if you poll most knowledgeable basketball fans, most often than not they would relate the two. Little harsh to call someone a retard because of it...

Then as I said, anybody making that assumption based on the name is a retard.

Relating the two is one thing, because they are related. Making an assumption of exclusivity based upon that relation is another (i.e. single team instead of the style they played). And, using that assumption to take another step of assuming I'm deliberately deceiving people is a leap of ignorance I don't even want to address further.

The OPs premise to stupid.

NO player can lead a team to a title unless the squad is properly built around him.

MJ couldn't win until he got Pippen and Phil w/players who understood the triangle.

Shaq could not win without Kobe and DWade plus very good defenders around him.

Kobe could not win without Pau, Odom, Fisher and a great defense.

KG could not win until he had a super team built around him with Jesus and Pierce and.... more defense.


Sorry but the OPs post is asinine.

Dirk actually has a very solid chance this year if JHo works out at SG and they can get at least one more big to clog the middle and defend the paint with Dampier.

He got closer than most guys do and he did it with less.
