Did You See Paul George's Leg? It Was Weird Looking.

We were released from the hospital on Friday and mom, baby, and ELITE DAD are all getting assimilated under one roof but with very, VERY different sleep schedules.  I let She$ go upstairs to get a few hours of sleep that first night while baby and I chilled on the recliner.  One of Mick and I's first memories will be watching Paul George die on that UNLV court.  HOLY SHIT.

OMG that was so gross.  I find it hilarious that some people are blaming the stanchions.  LOL YOU PICKED THE FUCKING VENUE, USA HOOPS!!!  Don't blame a goddamn post for your gross incompetence.  That's like blaming an airplane for 9/11.  Or not.  Sleep deprivation seems to be effecting my usually strong analogy game.

Almost immediately after everyone was done throwing up to the leg snap heard around the world, Mark Cuban went on the offensive and verbally PWNED the IOC.  And you know what?  He's fucking right.  Using professionals for Olympic competition only benefits them.  It doesn't help anyone else.  They line the pockets of all those crooks.  Those assholes aren't making bank from the decathlon.  Hoops is buying them all gold-plated Lambos.  The players and teams are taking all the risk.  That is really fucked up.  These superstars want to do the right thing and play for their country and win a gold medal, but all they are doing is rewarding cocksuckers.

Let's be honest here: Paul George may never play basketball again.  He sure as shit will never be the same.  You are NEVER going to forget that time when your leg snapped off.  The Pacers just lost their max-contract superstar and their already near-shut window of title opportunity is officially closed.  It's over.  The Pacers are in rebuild mode now.  And it all ended during an intrasquad scrimmage in Vegas for a basketball tournament that isn't even the Olympics.

Larry Bird should be fucking pissed and rightfully so.  If I was an owner or a GM, I would do everything that I could to prevent my players from participating in these things.  YOU pay them, not America.  Is it fair or right to value THE AL_IGHTY _OLLAR (ELITE reference) over your country?  Fuck yeah it is.  This is basketball, not war.  Your allegiance is to your employer that is paying your 8 figure salary.  I understand that this is a freak thing and you can't wrap these guys in bubble wrap 24/7 once the season ends.  So fucking what.  I don't care. 
No need to cry, bitch, this time it wasn't you!
Do you Bulls fans like seeing Derrick Rose play for someone that is not the Bulls?  Sure, he looks great, but every minute that he is wasting on a floor not in Chicago brings him closer to his next injury (and you know it's coming and soon).  I don't know how a team can safeguard themselves from horrific injuries like this but maybe some sort of contract clause that voids payment (some or all) of the player's contract if they get hurt off the team's clock.  I don't know.  Something.  Because the Pacers are going to have to pay Paul George almost 100 million dollars over the next 4-5 years and his career is fucked.

Since it sounds like Kevin Love to Cleveland is a done deal, I'm very pleased that he backed out of this team.  Hell yeah.  Same with LeBron.  An NBA title means way more than a FIBA World Championship, and, to be honest, more than a gold medal.  At least it does to me who has no chance of winning either and thus should not have a take on it.  It's time to bring the college kids back or the rosters from the Rookie/Sophomore game.  The veterans have too much to lose and so little to gain.

In conclusion, Coach K was on the floor for Paul George AND Kevin Ware.  This is not a coincidence, sheeple!  Satan is using the dark arts to ruin basketball players one leg at a time.  WAKE UP!

Meh. I don't care if they play or don't play. But, these guys play basketball ALL year long. Sure, they may take a week off during the summer after the season...but, they are continually working out....which means there is always a chance of this happening, like Bird said. It's no different than Kiko Alonso working out on his own a month ago and blowing his ACL. There's always a chance..this one just happened to happen during one of these games.

Drew's right, as usual.

No one is forcing these guys to play in these games. The players know the risk involved. Normally I'm a fan of Cubes but he just needs to shut up on this one. He already hates the IOC and this is just him pathetically trying to show the world how much smarter he is than everyone. This situation is like me buying a Lamborghini, driving it 150, wrecking it then my parents getting pissed at the car manufacturer for ever making a car like that available for public purchase. If the owners don't want their players risking their careers for USA, then put a clause in their contract that says they can't play in the Olympics. That way the players can just point to the owners when dick face journalists ask them, "Why you hate 'Merica??".

GMoney said...

I know all of this. It doesn't make a ton of sense for Kevin Durant to be practicing for the World Championships though. He is better than that. Quick--where are the World Championships? Answer--No one fucking knows or cares.

I actually do think that it would be cool if we took our Rising Stars rosters and sent them for international competition. See what they can do. The children are our future (unless we stop them).

I blame Coach K. He hates black people and Jesus and probably Black Jesus.

God, I could use a few more hours of sleep...

Let's not forget to laugh at Tiger Woods career ending yesterday. My favorite part was everything. Get fucked, asshole.

Real sweet move by Iceman poisoning Toledo's water supply before he moved to FLOLrida.

GMoney said...

You have to admit...Toledo is America's Chernobyl.

T. Iceman said...

What's your issue with Florida, Ide? Years ago did a Grumpy look-a-like feel up your baby nuts there while feeding you Werthers off his cock head?

GMoney said...

Have you not heard that Brooklyn is the World's Greatest Piece of Shit???

That said, Florida sucks.

6 years/115 million...for Andy Dalton. Wow. HOW DOES THIS IMPACT BRIAN HOYER DESTROYER'S CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS???

Cakes said...

That injury was horrific. Why does this keep happening in basketball?

LOL at the Bengals. That contract is ridiculous.

Josh Gordon is practicing today! The appeal meeting is STILL going on in New York. The longer this thing plays out the better. If they were going to suspend him for the year, it would've already happened. I'm sure Iceman is pissed that they haven't slapped him with the 16 game suspension yet.

Manziel is taking first team reps today! I'm starting to think he might be closing the gap a little bit. We'll know much more this Saturday.

WINDIANS only 3 games out of that WC.

T. Iceman said...

I'm sure Cakes is still a dipshit faggot. Judging by his last comment...confirmed.

T. Iceman said...

Sunshine, beaches, no snow, NO STATE TAX. Yeah...Florida sure does suck.

Yeah it's probably not smart for NBA guys to play in this International stuff, but how many guys have gotten seriously hurt since the NBA started sending players in 1992? I can think of one, Paul George. Just a classic media overreaction. But like I said, it's probably not worth the risk.

You bet your ass Iceman is rooting for a full season suspension for Gordon. Anything good for the Browns is bad for Iceman.

The #Windians have sucked me in again. I'll just have to wait for the next kick in the nuts to happen at some point before the season is over.

-Damman

Cakes said...

The kick in the nuts is coming for sure. This team doesn't strike me as playoff worthy but I have no problem backing in. I've already written them off TWICE in the past month but then they get a sweep and start flirting with that last WC spot.

Can we just leave Swisher on the bench and play Dickerson from now on? I don't give a shit about his brohioness. Dude looks pathetic at the plate.

Ouch Iceman! Dupshit faggot? Go hug a gator or something.

Prime99 said...

When Adam Corolla had his morning radio show he used to play "Florida or Germany?" where you had to guess if a story about a whacked out person was either from FL or GER. It was great.

Sucks for Paul George, but thanks for the extra division wins, Indiana! Bulls vs Cavs should be fantastic.

The sleep deprivation is easily the worst part of having an infant. Good luck, G$!

Dipshit faggot is reserved for those who don't listen, Cakes. You've earned it.

So the #windians had lost 3 straight series, including 3/4 to Kansas City and at home versus Seattle (the teams you're chasing).. And then sweep the worst team in the league and all of a sudden Damman and cakes are all in for the season? LOLOLOLOL! Cute windian fans will never change.

At least the tigers will put the Yankees out of their misery this week. Good luck, G$.

I know iceman keeps ripping on me for not posting after I demanded the spam filter be lifted, but half the time I write something spectacular and it doesn't post. It's frustrating.

I bet iceman turns into a douchey SEC fan while living in the souf. I can already see him on his high horse ripping on osu because they can't compete with the hillbillies he now surrounds himself around.

Iceman, go follow @_floridaman for all of your Florida needs. I have been there many times. It is a shithole. You live in the Panhandle. Good luck with that. The entire panhandles education standard is FAR below that of Toledo, which is saying something.

Also, No one wants to swim in the Gulf of Mexico. FACT. Your beaches are bullshit.

Go Jags, amirite?

Ide

T. Iceman said...

Oh God! I better fucking move then! Florida isn't Ide approved!!

Never in my life have I met someone who goes out of his way to find the worst in everything. I bet Hawaii sucks ass too, doesn't it? San Diego?? Don't waste your time. Once you finally move out of New York I'm sure that place will magically blow, too.

Prime99 said...

Iceman chastising Ide for finding the negative in everything is the best.

Florida to Ide is the Josh Gordon situation to Iceman.

Except zero other state has the reputation that Florida does. You may see all the old people on your facebook feed LOVING Naples, but you don't see anyone living in Tallafuckinghassee screaming "BET YOU WISH YOU WERE HERE". Don't kid yourself into thinking Florida is some paradise. It's America's cock, and you're in the ball sack.

Ide

Cakes said...

Don't listen? I'm an excellent listener.

Florida is most defintely ridiculous. They have the crazy hillbilly trashball market cornered.

What are we supposed to do, Dut? Stop rooting for the Indians all together because they swept a team they were supposed to sweep. Nowhere have I said that the division title is within reach (ONLY 6.5 out though!). Indians fans are looking at that last wildcard spot. 3 games back isn't shit with 50+ to play.

Cakes- you're failing to see that your team sux dix. That's all.

Between the humidity (one million percent) and the constant swamp ass, Florida is not for me. But I don't believe that Gaineville qualifies as being in the panhandle but then again I do not have a map of Florida in front of me.

Keep in mind, Urban Frank III faked his own death to get out of there and move to Brohio. That says a lot.

Yanks have the Tigers and Tribe this week at The Stadium...put up or shut up time, bruh. Offense is actually looking pretty good now so they will probably get no hit 5 times this week by the Pussies and Klubes.

Manziel apparently has been horrible with the 1s today.

Met our pediatrician today who was born and raised in Whitehouse and used to go to the Henry County Fair horse races. I congratulated him on his hometown's garbage water.

GMoney said...

I know that severe injuries like George's rarely happen but it just did and that is enough for me to say "OK, LeBron, you stay home forever and do whatever you do all Summer in Akron...probably fornicate". I'm a Cavs fan before I'm an America Guy.

T. Iceman said...

That means that Ide will forever be staying the fuck out of Florida. Good. The move is already paying off.

Anonymous said...

Florida is more for Iceman anyways. Their brand of sports fandom is exactly what Iceman needs. You won't be looked down upon for giving up on the Browns after week 1. Hell, they will still applaud you for being a true fan! The worst fan belongs in the state with the worst fans. You are the Miami Heat fan of the Browns.

Oh, and enjoy the bugs.

Ide

Cakes said...

Whitehouse?! Nice. That's a part of my old Anthony Wayne stomping grounds. Nice to know that your new child will be cared for by a GENERAL.

Manziel isn't looking good huh? That probably means he's looked amazing when compared to mere mortals. Johnny footbaw is held to a higher standard than most. Probably just nitpicking by the press. 16-0 HERE WE COME!

This is the most excited I've ever been for the Great Lakes Classic against the Lions.

T. Iceman said...

Whatever man. I'd rather be in "terrible" Florida with the bugs and "fake fans" than be a hipster dick smack in Brooklyn paying 3 times the going rate for a bottle of water. Excuse me...Voss water. Because any old water just will not do.

GMoney said...

I'd pay top dollar for some of that Toledo algae brine.

LOLZ Iceman. NYCs drinking water is better quality than bottled.
