    sure they dumb down conversations... but god damn do they make them hilarious
    hahaha i cant wait for the heinz-isms

    why were they banned anyways?

    i think swearing should be allowed. direct threats like imma kill you and your family definitely shouldnt be allowed and threats and constant harassment on PM.

    Ya, Tim and Multi never did see eye-to-eye ... hahaha

    And I do agree thats its nice not having to read/respond to stupid comments made for the sole purpose of getting a response. haha

    But Multi had his moments ... few and far between though.
    Oh, believe me, it wasn't just Multipaul. There were people on both sides of that particular argument that didn't have an IQ point to rub together and felt insulting was a valid form of debate. Multipaul was probably one of the tamer ones.

    heinz-isms... lol.

    round where i come from, they're called "talking"... they weren't banned though... my offenses have all been language related, which i've made an effort to curb... the mods have been extremely liberal with me, for some reason...

    the off-season has been humorless for me... had a tree root go through my sewage drain backing up poo water into my house, over a month of renos to fix the damage, then an infestation of sewage flies.. plus my cute little puppy has grown into an 80 lb monster of a puppy.. and theres no b-ball. hasnt been good times.

    dont worry... sooner or later i'll be talking about dropping dookies in hooker's mouths again... you can tame the beast, but it's still a f'ing beast.

    as for multi.... ya, he was irrational, made little sense, and would argue a nonsensical point to death... and at one point, some dude thought me and him were the same person... but god that dude was hilarious...

    That's just wrong. Very, very wrong. It took me a second to figure out why it looked odd. But when I did.....

    You know, people may be right. Bargnani has lost some weight it seems.

    Default Bargnani's HoopsHype.com Final Blog Entry

    I expected this blog to last longer, but as you all know by now my team, Italy, was eliminated early in the Eurobasket
    We were in a tough group and lost a lot of close games and had to go home.
    Iím now taking a small break after the disappointment that was the tournament for me and my teammates.
    some people in the media set outlandish expectations for us. I really didnít think we had much of a chance to fight for the medals at the Eurobasket. I was more realistic. My goal was to get...
    2 rebounds and 20PPG.

    ...to the second round and see what happened there.
    Not sure yet whatís going to happen in the next few weeks. Itís all going to depend on if thereís a training camp. Right now it doesnít look like it, but it could change in a couple of days. Who knows? Iím going to keep practicing. I canít say much about those rumors that European teams want to sign me. First we have to see if thereís no NBA season, then weíd have to get past some issues that could arise. I have four years left in my contract with the Raptors and I donít want to take risks.

    Thatís all for me, guys. Thanks for reading. A presto!

    as much as I would love him to and think he should.... I'd bet there is better chance that Raps fans cheer Vince again than BC dropping Bargs.

    I'm not so sure I agree. BC has his balls to the wall in Toronto. The way things are going, he may only have 1 season on the court to show improvement. Bargnani is no longer a project. If something comes along that will pay immediate dividends in the near and long term, he will be shipped...... at least I hope. I recognize this is my opinion and I could be very well be wrong. I am basing this opinion on the end of season press conference where he referred to Bargnani as an asset - that was a first. I'm not sure he is considered a building block anymore - but I realize I might be wrong there as well. If only we could see inside BC's head.

    oh I could see Bargnani possibly being traded (although i highly doubt Bargnani's real value is anywhere near BC's perceived value making it an unlikely occurance), but can you picture BC just dropping Barg's contract if given the opportunity?

    Even then, everything BC has done (and what Casey has said) makes me believe what BC said at the end of the season press conference may have just been lip service to an increasingly disgruntled fan base. Won't be the first time he's done that ("best team on paper", "we have a real chance of resigning Bosh", "Bosh was a big d-bag", "high collars lead to victory" etc - all paraphrased ofcourse)

    lol - of course.

    Actually, I forgot about Casey's comments. Also forgot about the non-ED comments from Casey. Who knows what to believe. Remember how high they were on Leonard, Walker, Knight, Biyombo, and Kanter? I think the most important things are often left unsaid. But, again, who knows?

    This has been discussed repeatedly though - he is hardly going to rip him or make it seem like he doesn't want him. BC and Co. only do that after the fact. :P

    WHat has Colangelo done? He drafted a center who looks like he might have some pretty good offensive ability to go along with his defense and rebounding, and he hired a coach who demands defense from his players. Not sure how that means he wants to keep Bargnani.

    I can see him keeping Bargnani for another season (until Valanciunas comes) but I think it would be a big mistake. His trade value is only going to continue to decline. Last summer was the time to trade him as his value was probably at it's highest. Now everyone pretty much knows what you get with Bargnani. Before this season he still had that "upside" tag, but after an entire season as the #1 option, playing heavy minutes, while being horrible on defense and on the boards, does anyone really think that Bargnani has the potential to be anything more than a role player?

    Too me, just about anything he can to try and make Andrea work.

    I can picture BC when someone recommends trading Bargnani:

    Like what? Draft a PF, then re-sign another one to a long term contract, then the next season draft a center, basically creating a logjam at the position he plays?

    And Tim how do you expect that log jam to end? Logically? Cause I don't.

    I know you have some new found faith in BC since this offseason.... but I'm not going to buy his love affair with Andrea has ended until I see it (ie. coming of the bench or traded), or until Andrea becomes the productive player he could be.

    Anyone who has had an addiction can tell you. Quitting is easy, not starting again is the tough part.

    2 rebounds and 20PPG.
    He actually averaged 7.4rpg for the Tournament, and in 5 games he managed to grab more Rebounds than Marc or Pau Gasol have in 9 games. Impressive feat, I'd say.

    Not to mention he was Second among all scorers in the Tournament.
    But I don't think people appreciate his scoring abilities as much as they probably should.
