I can't believe I overlooked the whole shoe angle in my original post. A shoe contract is equivalent to scoring 12 points per game. These are points that are added to your nightly totals after the fact. So Arenas didn't pour 31 points down on a hapless Nash, he annihilated Nash with 43 all-universe game breakers.

OUCH!!!!!

One more thing about assists. Though we keep track of them like they matter, we all know that assists are for wimps. Real ballers take it to the hoops themselves. When real men formulate basketball statistics, they subtract assists from points to get a true idea of a player's worth.

In that light Nash didn't score an somewhat impressive 27, he instead limped in with a paltry 13. Big whoop. Arenas is so prolific around the hoop scorekeepers will normally credit him with 13 points just for taking the pre-game warm-up.

So, the adjusted totals now read:
Arenas: 43 painful daggers to the hearts of Sun's fans everywhere
Nash: 13 puny laughers in the face of his most implacable opponent

Again I say, HIBACHI. Sun's fans are burned again.

the sarcasm was overkill. you don't need to call a fat b!tch a thin woman.

but a lot of dumb people here probably still didn't get it.

they're the ones who read articles from the onion and think it's legitimate news.

at this thread. Why do people have such a hard time grasping sarcasm? Can't believe someone fell for it.

I like how Arenas is so hot right now that he actually has desperate haters making fools out of themselves trying to bring him down.

the problem with your satire, besides the fact that it sucks, is that you aren't satirizing anything. everyone is on Nash's side. everything Arenas has gotten credit for he's deserved twice the credit he's gotten.

You know, during Iverson's finals run in 2001, the TV announcers ACTUALLY USED THAT EXCUSE for Iverson.

"When Iveson attakcs the hoops, even if his shot doesn't go in, he drew so much attention that it frees up Tyronne Hill and Mutombo for an easy put back"

I mean, i love Iverson, that run is one of my most favorite NBA memories, but the way the announcers try to play off Iverson's missed shots as a positive effect on his teammates was hilarious.

You got me all wrong geeWiz. I'm a HUGE Arenas fan.

I guess I was probably being a little too obscure - a little too subtle if you like. The point of my original post was to put a little Hibachi into our man Gilbert while I satarized the satarizers.

You heard me, this was all satire of satire. I was simply trying to tweak all those guys on the board who don't like the people on this board who don't profess not to like the haters of all the non-likers of Nash.

Those are the guys who march up and down this board in order to trumpet their outdated notions on what it takes to be a great player in this league. It's about time they got their due.

The only thing worse than a groupie is a groupie without a sense of humour.

If you are referring to geeWiz, then that's not exactly true.

His last post had me laughing - laughing hard as a matter of fact.

Lol, Iverson's one of the players I had in mind when I posted that... That same line was used for Steve Francis in his early years as well... To an extent, it's true... There are certain shots that, though they are misses, put your team in great position to rebound and get a foul, but it's definitely not an argument I would try to make on a consistent basis... perhaps on a shot by shot basis... you can point to certain shots that have that characteristic every now and then, but people start tripping when they make it out to be more than it is... High percentage misses.

Very sensitive.

Arenas is awesome, but this is a funny thread.

That's like laughing at the desperate 14 year old nerd that's in love with the reasonably good looking but incredibly weird girl no one wants to even go near to.

You don't do that kind of stuff.
