Im not feeling sorry for Dunleavy because hes a minority for once. Im feeling sorry for Dunleavy because of all the deragatory remarks and names hes called. Its not warranted.

Dislike the guy, but have some respect.

Im sorry you get overlooked for a promotion at your job, but I doubt people are online making up sound alike names.

As for "getting my face smashed in" as Migya mentioned, your right..and Ill leave it at that.

Firstly, dun gets trashed because he plays like trash, so it is deserving, if anyone is to get trasehed, it is him.

Where did I say you would get smashed?

Great post coltraining. Warrior fans have a right to boo anyone on the team. I'm a big Dallas Cowboy fan and i hate T.O., and he's a brother. I would take Dun over T.O. any day. I hate T.O. because he drops to many passes, don't want to go a cross the middle, and destroy teams chemistry. So, trolloc, remember when we say hate, we mean it in a sporting sense.

Sorry Migya, it was Aletha33 that said the smashed part. My misquote.

Anyway, I dont want to dwell on the negative and I dont want to get into a discussion that leads this forum into debating racism. That wasnt my intention.

I only felt that I had seen inconsistancy in the way Dunleavy was being betrayed as compared to some other players who have been dissapointing. But in hindsight the critism of Dunleavy has been consistant on this forum, so Ill live and let live.

Basketball should be about entertainment, so Ill take the comments with a grain of salt. Thanks for the replies and have a good holidays.

Probably the healthiest thing for all concerned would be for Dun to go play for his pops on the clippers.


Good points; however, Ike does not get time because he does not fit into Nelson's system, much the same way that Jalen Rose did not get any time while playing for Larry Brown in Indiana.

I agree with uptempo. I have been saying this all along. Diogu has that bastard size. Not big enough for a 4 or 5, not quick enough for a 3. There are very few Charles Barkleys in the world.

Yet Diogu is one of them in the sense that he can score at will in the post! Diogu is showing again in today'd game that can be effective in few minutes

True. He can score and he can rebound decently and block an occasional shot. That's all we need from him and he's giving us that. As long as he produces, I don't care about his size.

yeah, I am not sure I am feeling you, Reggie L on the bastard size. Ike has a huge wingspan, and he is 1 inch shorter than Brand - another majorly productive outing tonight: 13 points, 4 boards, 2 blocks and zero turnovers in 17 minutes

That's it! Diogu is 6ft 8in, not that small at all and his big build and wingspan make him ideal for a PF!

Again, Diogu is productive but gets fukall minutes! It realy does seem like Nelson doesn't like the guy

If Ike were a bit taller, he wouldn't have been available at #9. Size played a role in his draft, and is a genuine concern... but as long as he can produce (and he does every time he plays, at least on offense), I'm ok with him.

Cant imagine what the crowd around me would do if i said the same about a black player.

Are you feeling sorry for Dunleavy because he is a minority for once in his life? I'm the only black at my job and cannnot get promoted because I don't project the corporate image. Feel sorry for me, I'm not a multi-millionaire like Mikey. So let's don't start with the white boy crap again. It has nothing to do with his race. He's just not very good. Even a blind pig finds an acorn every now and then.

I hate Dunleavy the same way I hated Johnny LeMaster on the Giants years ago. I hate the way we HAVE TO play him to justify his #3 selection. I hate his new contract. I hate the way he always try to take a charging foul instead of playing defense. I hate the way he rags on his team mates. I hate we traded Antawn Jamison so Mikey could start. I hate the Barnett and Fitzgerald kisses his ass all the time.[/quote]

I can relate to your hate for Dun but taking charges is just about the only thing he's good at. He's so frail that his charges look really realistic. In my book that's his number one skill. :-)

I find it hilarious how Fitz struggles to keep his stance on the charging rule while still defending Dun in every way.
