The Lakers took 45 3s took... Sasha took 14 by himself.

Memphis has definitley been figuring things out more lately. I think they should stick with Iavoroni next year, see how it goes. I wonder if the media will start realizing Darko's finally coming on, after this game.

Darko sucks man. You see that play near the end where Turiaf tipped the pass to Darko and for no reason at all Darko went to go get it and tried to save it(it was unsaveable and thus grizzlies ball) but threw it out of bounds? Iavoroni benched him right after. What a fucking idiot.

3 good lookin games tonight(saturday):

PHX@NJN, 730PM, SNETO,SNETE- Both teams on back to backs, PHX coming off a big win in PHI and NJ with a loss in IND. PHX/NJN games were always amazing when Kidd was there, but Harris gives the Suns fits as well so it should be a tight game til the 4th anyway.

CLE@DET, 730pm, RAPSTV- Hamilton returns, and so does the detroit killer himself, Boobie Gibson. CLE beat DET last game in DET. If you like defence and boring offence this is the game for you.

GSW@DEN, 9PM, SNETW- Game of the night bar none. GSW is only .5 up, if they win tonight they have to like their chances of gettign into the playoffs. The two best runnign teams in the NBA, and a ton of great matchups with guys that have no chance to guard eachother(carter/whoever on Baron, ellis vs ivy, sjax vs melo). Should be a fantastic game.

basketball is an inner city urban game, not shocking that some "thugs" play.

But if u are speaking of Iverson like that, like alot of ppl seem to do, its simply ignorant, literally EVERY player in the league loves the guy, would love to play with the guy, and has the upmost respect for him. He plays hard every play, mentors young players and is open with the mistakes he has made in the past and mans up about it, not much to hate imo.

Ummm, yeah, Iverson IS a thug. Dude beat his wife if I'm not mistaken or chased her down. YES, he IS a great example of what a Thug is not. Love it or hate it, the man is a thug.

Oh, and let's not forget, punch n' run 'Melo.

Yes and that's not much to hate right, save for the homophobic comments Mr. Iverson has made in the past. Yes, not much to hate at all about the man. How could I or anyone be wrong?

"Street slang" doesn't eliminate other meanings 'pimp'. Historical interpretations of 'thug' are not messed up 'definations' (sic). Just because Tupac use a word differently doesn't mean the old meaning has disappeared. You can't erase history by tattooing a slogan on your stomach and writing a couple of tunes. Even the urban dictionary posting you posted has this definition (my emphasis):

"The English word thug, meaning a violent criminal, comes from the Hindi word thag (and originally from the Sanskrit word sthaga), meaning a thief or villain."Back in the 1500's or so ,not really sure about the date, there was a god, in which ladies would come to. They would scarfice items to it, and also cut themselfs and the men would come and still there sacrifics and beat the women and they call themselfs thugs"The original Thugs were bands of roving criminals in India who strangled and robbed travellers. Originally these gangs committed murder following precise religious rites to honour Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction."

Now I'm not expecting any of us to be using the ancient Sanskrit meaning, but it has always (in English) meant a violent criminal. While Tupac may mean something different, it doesn't necessitate that all of us suddenly adopt his meaning and ignore the historical development of our language.

Yikes the Heat only made 17 field goals. Lowest since the advent of the shot clock.

Iverson was charged with several felonies this past July by the Philadelphia criminal justice system over alleged domestic abuse. All the charges were dropped. His wife, Tawanna Iverson, said in the same interview that they did argue, but denied that her husband had hit her.

Dont just write what u heard as fact, police in philly were openly toasting to Iversons "next" felony conviction, he never chased her with a gun, he confronted his cousin with a gun, not that it makes it right, but he manned up and admitting to making a mistake, has grown as a person and as a father, but some shortsighted ppl cant seem to let it go!

Ask any1 in the league who works harder in game then Allen? Who can a young player call at 3am for advice or help if in trouble? Oh yea Mr. "Thug" himself, who every player in the league seems to love.

Oh he made a rap song with some anti homosexual lyrics, isnt that a rarity?? How about all the anti homosexual politicians? Are they "thugs" too? Oh guess they arent cuz they are white middle aged or better Christians, so its ok for them, they wont be labeled as low.

Iverson takes all kinds of unfair critism from ppl who dont understand where he is coming from or why he talks a certain way, but he is a stand up guy who has grown alot as a person and deserves respect IMO, hattttttttttters!

I could care less if AI's considered a thug or not. He freakin' awesome and hands down the toughest player in the NBA still today. Would love him in a Raptors jersey had it not been for his $20 million price tag.

i agree, AI plays his heart out. But i honestly get the impression he is very misunderstood as a person and a kind hearted person, ppl just want to judge him on a couple things he has done since he is in the spotlight, im sure if i knew about any1's life in detail and their missteps i could judge them poorly on a few single acts of stupidity, its how u bounce back from mistakes u make that truely tell you the kind of person some1 is.

Really ingenius way to make fun of my forum typing, again, im so hurt, oh u sooo funnnnieeeeee
