      I think you meant “two words,” but no it’s not, dude. It’s an adjective. Look it up.

    If you have a clue about the NBA and know the current players…

    How in the f u c k could Harrison Barnes be on the team?

    This is worse than the Plumlee decision in the past by Coach Z.

      I’m with you on that … maybe he’ll be able to play some 4 and run and that will make him a better player … they really needed another ball handler, though

    How/Why is Jim Boeheim allowed to represent USA? Makes me sick.

    I am not sure why anyone would want Carmelo Anthony on the team…he plays no defense.
