Does Sledge need more help than the most doped-up version of Beasley? I mean, should we Baker Act the guy? Judging by some of the comments on here, it appears like the guy needs some serious attention - and fast.
Is it me or is Ira so much more of a man in his Ask Ira! section than in the blog itself?
BTW, that game last year against GSW that went into overtime (or double OT, I don't remember exactly) was one of the best games I've ever seen in my life. It was on west coast time so it was on kind of late so I don't know how many of you guys watched it but man, that game really raised my level of respect for those guys. What a game. Posted by: dsky0921 | August 30, 2009 at 02:10 PM Yeah, I remember that one. Great, great game. The Utah game at home that went into double (or was it triple?) overtime was incredible, too.
I agree with trading him to some destination (like OKC) where the conditions are not so strenuous and demanding as they are down here. Couldn't we do something like Durant/Westbrook/2 future first round picks for Beasley and Wright?
WHY couldn't Beasley go with making brownies instead? Why??? This has nothing to do with physiological addictions or psychological problems. Bake the 'stuff' --literally. I bet that's the lesson Chalmers took away from last year's mishap.
"chocolate has caffeine, thus can be addictive. I think the main issue/question isnt whether or not something is addictive,, but whther the addiction is harmful." I'm just playing devil's advocate here, but if taking two or three hits before game time helped 'loosen up' a player enough that he believed himself unstoppable under such conditions and the crowd became a complete non-factor (or an intensified boost of enthusiasm, depending if at home or away), and, to furthermore, actually helped the player perform 'better' than under a sober state of mind, wouldn't the word "harmful" then be have said to have been placed on its head?
Rumor has it that Riley wants to keep the expected address to the media short and simple by quoting Nietzsche: "He whom you cannot teach to fly, teach to fall faster!"
Beasley thinks "life's not worth living"? Who here still wants Marbury on this team?
Can we talk a little about Diawara's 'next step' in the next blog? I figure that might generate just as much substance as this blog post did. j/k Ira I realize that the offseason demands the most creativity from someone in your position.
it frustrates me to see how money and success has changed him. it's unfortunate, but i personally think it happens to all of us to some degree. Posted by: albert | July 07, 2009 at 06:15 PM Good point. I have a 4 1/2 year relationship on the verge of ending thanks largely to that --more clearly put, I am the one who, shortly, will remain without money, without success, and without a girlfriend. LoL Life can be a bitch sometimes..
"Miss Stan?" Not sure if you intended that, Ira, but nice word-play there. For a moment I thought you were suggesting that Van Gundy was behaving like a woman..
What is it with Ira's insistence on making this year's Hawks out to be of the same caliber as the inaugural-year Bobcats? He swears we lost to a WBNA squad or something down that line..
