In Response to Re: BBD's Jumper
[QUOTE]BBD has every right to point out the limits of Howard's game especially when during the game he had just played Howard was horrible. BBD played well until the end when the whole team floundered. He has earned a right to make comments about a pampered limited player like Howard even if they are extremely valuable to their teams. Howard is a big phony, one of the dirtiest players I have ever seen and acting like he is some sort of god fearing teddy bear. BBD was right to point out they can't beat us in a game that is important, really what do want him to say? Howard was good and overwhelming in a game where he could do nothing. Look at the stats. This team needs some fire and arrogance to win 18. BBD almost had a triple double tonight. Whether you want to admit it or not the guy has earned the right to speak his mind about a over rated player no matter what the reason for he has for it.

What do you mean when you say "BBD has every right to point out the limits of Howard's game "? Who gave him this right?
We rarely see players calling out other players in the press and pointing out (humiliating actually) their skillset. It happens but not very often and when it does it's usually a much better player giving it to a lesser player.. not the other way around. Kinda like KG calling Villane.... (the Piston player) a nobody.
Now before you start saying how good BBD is... and he is good and valuable to the C's, remember he's not even a starter and please dont start getting carried away and comparing him to Howard.
Yes, DH is a dirty player and I dont like him either. Yes, DH is very limited in his offensive skills. But DH is on another level than BBD and there is not one NBA team, if given a choice, would choose BBD over DH.
My point through all this is suddenly BBD has become more bold and critical in his comments to the media... he wasnt like this in previous years. hes become more bold with his play on the court... Yes hes gotten better but suddenly BBD is chucking up a 3 in crunch time early in the clock..(never before in my memory), hes taking many fall away jumpers, which rarely connect.
The pattern Im seeing is recently BBD is talking & acting on the court in a different personality. More cocky and self serving imo. I dont think its a good development... you may have a differrent opinion, nothing wrong with that
