    Friday Evening Discussion

    I'll keep it sports related tonight. I love hearing stories about trash talking in the NBA. Most people don't like Kevin Garnet, but I enjoy watching him play just to see him try to get in opponents heads. I think Reggie Miller was the best trash talker of all time from what I have seen. Larry Bird was known to be a good one too, but Reggie's was more documented.

    Who is your favorite trash talker in sports? Doesn't necessarily have to be NBA.

    Reggie Miller trash talking the Knicks in the mid-90s was some of my fave stuff.

    I think this is what the NBA is missing today. Garnet does it, Duncan trolled the Dwightmare in the playoffs, but there really isn't any good individual rivalries in the NBA today like Reggie vs Sparks

    Edit: To an extent, Noah gets in it with Heat players

    Ex Cedar Rapids Silver Bullet John Starks. Whatever year ESPN made the 30-30 that featured the Pacers-Knicks was awesome. 1994 or 1995 I think.

    I knew that. I've had a few too many whiskeys at this point. However, I didn't know he played in Crapids

    Ha. I figured you knew that. Working on some myself after the great performance by L.A. tonight. He was here from 89-90.

    The Glove.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    John Starks. My god I hated that guy. I remember I was 6 or 7 and telling my grandma how much I hated him.

    Re: Friday Evening Discussion

    KG is unrivaled in intimidating ****talking. People all over the NBA also say he mumbles weird things to himself like a psycho to keep himself motivated. He'd be the best teammate I think, but I would hate to get on his bad side (aka LeBron James or Ray Allen).
