    Shaq is a good example that winning doesn't add class. Barry Sanders had class. Shaq, while many times the Champion, doesn't deserve (IMO) to stand in Sanders shadow.

    The real sad part here is the players basically have to start flopping before contact in order to get the call. If they hold their ground like a man, then the offensive player will get the benefit of it.

    Shaq is so big and heavy that he needs to show that he got hit to get a charge. There will be occasions where the expected contact doesn't actually happen and he's committed to the fall. Players are smart and they adapt to the ways that the rules are enforced.

    Flopping is a ref problem in my opinion. When players flat out fake things to get the refs to bite, then that is a player problem. Most flops are partial contact with a big too much highlighting by the player that got fouled.

    DHo's a cool dude.

    Shaq's '18-year-old' comment shows how immature he is...what a chump.

    That's the worse thing that can happen that Mr. soundbite gets a studio job...he cannot handle the color commentary job, but somebody will pair him up with a straight man so he can deliver his monotone scriptures (raps) and silly dance moves:toilet:

    Warriors color man Jim Barnett pointed out how many points per game they take away by giving calls to the floppers. Then they turn around and complain about low scoring which leads to all the pansy rules they got now.

    Dwade does it again.....double OT win for El Heat over the Bulls

    Bulls were just about score the winning hoop and Wade steals the ball with 2.9 seconds left races down the floor to hit a three at the buzzer....Our game was good, but this game was another Wade showcase for MVP oh yeah he had 48 pts

    Mikwaukee beat Boston by shooting 32.6% from the field? Are you kidding me?

    Boston vs. Milwaukee - Recap - March 15, 2009 - ESPN

    I hate Walter Sharpe for putting an impressive workout and foolin' Joe Dumars.

    BOS defense w/o KG looks really bad. Ray Allen has been getting abused.

    I guess that's how the Pistons felt after Ben Wallace left.

    I hope this hurts Lebrons MVP chances.

    ppl are critisizing Pistons for D lapses but ya'll see how Bos feels when DPOY is not available.

    Life is not black and white.

    The playoff brackets for the West look awesome!

    Every series looks good; and Spurs/Mavs should be fun again even w/ the slightly different rosters.
