In Topic: Santonio Holmes/Miles Austin - where do they land?

It might be time to start thinking about using that college education for a 2nd career, that is if they have one.

:goodposting:

 

Holmes sitting on millions and will likely make a few more.

Well they kept the intensity up through another episode.  This going to be a great 10-episode mini-series.  Surprisingly the most uninteresting characters so far are Martin Freeman and Bob Odenkirk.

Who'd have guessed so many guys who hate basketball would be hanging around a hoops thread.
 
The Bad Boys wouldn't win 40 games today.

 
Right.  They once beat Bird's Celtics, Jordan's Bulls, and Magic and Kareem's Lakers in one playoff run, but they wouldn't win 40 nowadays in an Eastern Conference that is full of chump teams in the playoffs. :lmao:
 
 
Can't win if half your team is suspended for every game.
 
 
Because they wouldn't adjust their play to the rules of today?  
 
 
Sure they'd adjust.  But they wouldn't have the offensive firepower to win with the current rules.  After Isaiah none of the starters could create offense.  Take away their style of "defense" (clutch, crab, hit) and they'd be just another team.  40 games was obviously OTT, but they'd never make a final.
I don't think they could beat the Spurs, Thunder or Heat in a series, but don't forget that Dumars was a very good scorer as well and Laimbeer is todays prototypical stretch 4.

 

oh please, they beat the Boston HOF front line, they beat scottie and Jordan, the beat the showtime lakers, that lakers team was loaded.

 

these teams today are meh

 

The best Spurs team of this run would be right there.  So would Shaq/Kobe's best team.  Miami is not in the discussion.  Neither is OKC.

Like I said previously hard to root for the main character.  Seems like a dolt.  Was highlighted even moreso this episode with the whole Pied Piper naming storyline.   He brings nothing to the table.  Your lead character can't be the weak spot.

 

T.J. Miller, the mushroom-eating guy, is good in everything he does especially She's Out of My League.  The guy playing Paul Gregory is really good too. 

 

Not every protagonist on TV has a square jaw and bangs a myriad of beautiful women.

 

You need to bring some charisma to the table.  Jay Baruchel, from previously mentioned She's out of My League, would have been perfect for this role.

 

 

Plenty of Big Bang episodes out there if you want to watch "nerds" who don't really act like nerds.

 

Real nerds are not that interesting for more then a 90min doc.
