Yeah the Clippers are good but the Lakers have Nash Gasol and DWIGHT HOWARD. When you factor in just last year Nash made Gortat look not horrible this combination is obviously scary. As a Nash fan I've always dreamt he would get to play with Howard. DREAMS DO COME TRUE. And really f Kobe lol. Nash for fmvp.

I love how OP intentionally erased this part. But at least you can admit this is a non-story, and should be a non-thread.

My comment did not dispute whether or not he should be scared or if the Clippers will be able to compete with the Lakers...

I was simply pointing out that emphasizing That You Are Not Scared shows a little bit of low self esteem, even if its unintentional. I suspect that somewhere in that conversation he was being asked directly if he was scared, thus prompting that response. Typically if a person is not afraid they dont make an effort to state it emphatically.


Btw, Im not hating, I am a fan of both teams.. I support LA implicitly.

That player no longer exists, he is not 2004 Chauncey.

But good stuff, bringing up something that he accomplished 8 years ago.. I doubt his play then is relevant in any game hes in today..

Better to remain silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
If you don't know how the Amnesty clause works then shush.
If you don't know that FIBA teams and the NBA have a deal in place that would prevent Billups from going to Europe then shush

So basically just STFU

Nice try but the actual rest of the quote was this:

"but the Lakers? They TERRIFY me." The 11 year veteran then proceeded to curl up in to a ball and rock back and forth while softly singing the theme song to D'fferent Strokes to himself and continuing to urinate."

Truth is both LA Teams > NY Teams

Both teams are stacked. All should be happy in LA it's going to be a fun season.
