Post Up: Flowin’ Rose

The Bulls handle the Clips; the Mavs dominate in NY.

by Adam Figman | @afigman

Philadelphia 106, New Jersey 92

Despite Evan Turner’s struggles this season, the Sixers have plenty to look forward to. And by “plenty,” I mean “the next few years of Jrue Holiday.” Slightly under the radar, Jrue has been producing well this season, and last night his first career triple-double (11-10-11) helped Philly defeat the Nets in Jersey. Lou Williams, who seems well adapted to his role as off-the-bench assassin, scored a game-high 26, while Elton Brand put up a 15-and-10 double-double. The Sixers will now ready themselves for a home-and-home with the Knicks, and the Nets are off to Detroit.

Atlanta 100, Toronto 87

‘Tis the week for last minute All-Star statements, and Joe Johnson made a hell of a pitch, scoring 37 and propelling the Hawks to a victory over Toronto. That 37 marks his season high, but the 14 in the final quarter were most important, sparking a late run that solidified the lead and the win. The Hawks shot 55.3 percent from the floor in the W, which put their record at 31-18, now tied with Orlando for fourth in the conference.

Indiana 117, Cleveland 112

After blowing a late lead and falling to the Pacers, the Cavs are now a single L away from tying the single-season consecutive loss record. Rough. Not so rough is the Pacers getting their second straight win under a brand spankin’ new coach. Danny Granger led them with 23, while Darren Collison scored 22 and dished out 9. And if you’re the Bobcats, this is the part where you fear for your Playoff positioning. Or just start to win more. Either one.

Charlotte 97, Detroit 87

Hey! OK then. Doing what they can to hold onto that eighth spot, the Cats took care of the Pistons last night, led by Stephen Jackson and his masterful 39-point scoring outburst. He was Charlotte’s first and last offensive option, but when he’s converting at that rate (14-26 from the floor, 8-10 from the line), it’s hard to say that was a bad strategy at all. The Bobcats’ record is now 21-27, which, somehow, is good enough for postseason play in the top-heavy Eastern Conference.

Dallas 113, New York 97

Early in the game, the Knicks looked like the Mavs of old, running the ball up and down the floor, converting on open shots, throwing down alley-oops, and just taking advantage of some up-and-down basketball. But later on, the Mavs looked like the Knicks of recent, utilizing the pick-and-roll, going bonanza from three, and running a quick and effective offense that New York had no counter (or defense) for. The Mavs rolled along from there, as Dirk Nowitzki dropped 29 in the win. Danilo Gallinari was the most successful Knickerbocker, scoring 27, while Amar’e Stoudemire put in 21—all in the first half. The Mavs are off to Boston, where they play the C’s tomorrow night.

Memphis 102, Minnesota 84

Kevin Love (1o points, 10 boards) kept his double-double streak alive, but that was about the only positive news, as the TWolves were otherwise dominated by a stronger Grizzlies team. Zach Randolph muscled his way to 23 points and 13 boards, while Rudy Gay put up a strong 22-7-7 line. And don’t look now, but Memphis is heating up, having won four in a row and with what should be an easy one against Cleveland tomorrow night. The Grizz are now only a half game back of the Blazers, with the rights to sneak into the Playoffs via that always-coveted eighth spot on the line.

Oklahoma City 104, New Orleans 93

Following his slow start (relatively speaking), Kevin Durant is officially burning up. How many more games like these before we throw his name back into the MVP race? (Wait, it’s already back in? Yeah? Alright, cool.) Anyway, let me elaborate on “games like these”: 43 points, 10 boards, 5 assists, 5 threes, and a number of down-the-stretch buckets to lead the Thunder over the Hornets. Chris Paul had to leave the game early on after rolling his ankle, but he was able to return, providing 15 points and 6 dimes in the loss.

Denver 109, Portland 90

I’ve written before in this space about how, despite injury after injury, the Blazers always seem to find ways to win. Well last night they finally lost a piece that was too integral, as guard Wesley Matthews went down in the second quarter, and with it so did the Blazers chances of a earning a win. The Nuggets had their way with Portland in the second half, dominating both quarters and getting a combined 62 points from Nene, Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups. Denver also shot 51.9 percent from the floor in the victory.

Phoenix 92, Milwaukee 77

This whole “limited minutes” thing is really not working out for Brandon Jennings, and when things don’t work out for Brandon Jennings, they rarely work out for the Bucks. The Young Buck scored just 6 points in slightly under 25 minutes, as Milwaukee shot 31.1 percent (eek) from the field and couldn’t even reach the 80-point landmark last night. Phoenix, meanwhile, converted 50 percent of their shots, led by Marcin Gortat (again!) and his game-high 19.

Houston 97, Utah 96

The night’s closest game was a down-to-the-final-second battle, one in which the Rockets squeaked out a win—barely. After a Kevin Martin and-1 put the Rockets up one with under seven ticks to go, the Jazz failed to counter, as CJ Miles’ game-winning attempt rimmed out and Utah’s chances fell with it. With Deron Williams still sidelined—despite Earl Watson’s decent impersonation (his line read 11-9-8)—the Jazz just didn’t have the necessary firepower. For Houston, the win comes on the heels of a three-game losing streak.

Also: Sometimes I try to imagine what our society would look like without laws. It’s tough to know for sure, but I’m pretty sure this is the sight of true anarchy. Take a look for yourself, but beware: Boy, it’s scary out there! (Copyright: Kevin McAllister)

Chicago 106, L.A. Clippers 88

In a game headlined by stars like Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin, you’d expect nothing but jaw-to-the-floor excitement. And, in a sense, that’s what we got, as both guys put up nice numbers (32 points apiece) and showed off some sick athleticism. What we didn’t get was a super competitive contest, because, as we’re starting to learn, the Bulls are damn good. They easily took down the Clips, and now sit tied with Miami for second in the East. Given their problems with injuries all season, that’s crazy impressive. Chicago’s road trip continues in Golden State Saturday.

Actual Stats: Kevin Durant: 43 points, 10 rebounds, 5 dimes, 5 threes.

Last Call: I linked to this earlier in the post, but it deserves double link-love. It’s that sick. Peep:

    What up fam!

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Durant was great last night. He was 6-7 in the 1st half, and went Ariza went down at the beggining of the 3rd Q, he got even more aggressive. If he can play efficiently (obviously not 14-19 efficiency!), he will be in the thick of the race.
    With Okafor already out, losing Ariza hurt even more, and Chris Paul was playing literally on one leg. He still out played Russ Westbrook, and had him in foul trouble for the majority of the game.
    In the Chicago game, Rose was phenomenal. He’s going to turn into the PG version of Bron. When he gets a head of steam you can’t stay infront of him, and he can finish all over the place around the basket.

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Happy chinese lunar new year, SlamFam.
    May thee year of the bunny be good to everyone, and even better to my Mavs.

  • Morgan

    Gortat was the best player Phoenix received in that Trade, hands down! As soon as he gets used to playing pick and rolls with Nash he could easily become a 20-10 guy in that offense.
    And can someone please Free Blake Griffin?!!

  • MUBWAR

    After last nights game, I officially stop hating Rose. Clutch bucket after another.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Rose will have Bron like regular season success as long as he’s healthy.

  • ASH

    @MUBWAR
    WHAAAAAT!!! didnt see that comin….anyway Rose and Blake(1st half) BEASTED. Rose MVP!!!

  • MUBWAR

    ASH i lost the battle with Rose. The young’n is BEASTING LIKE NO OTHER

  • Stepfan

    What was Kyle Korver thinking? Why did he jump. Javale McGee poster all over again except they photoshop Blake Griffin. D rose and KD did work last night.

  • Stepfan

    @AllBall how many reverse lay ups did you count from Derrick Rose last night? He gets to the heart of the defense with such ease.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Yeah, I lost count. He is like Westbrook, but he stays under control, and is a better shooter.

  • The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    I was disappointed by the play of my man Russ Westbrk (The Lift) ystday. De 2 choz l’1: Mayb he just had a day without or he was intimidated by the prospect of guarding CP3.
    MIA # ORL 2day, can’t wait! Who ya got?

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/2011 Diesel

    If I’m Griffin, all I work on this summer is 10-15 foot jumpers. If he can hit that shot with any kind of consistency he’ll be almost ungaurdable. The OKC/NO game was getting chippy at the end. I don’t think Westbrook was intimidated, I think he was over excited for the matchup. That was causing him to turn the ball over and make stupid fouls like the one on CP 10 feet behind the 3 point line. Props to CP3′s first half performance tho. He won me over a bit with his hustle. As for Rose, how can you not like a guy that has a game like that while still dealing with stomach ulcers?

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    The past 2 times CP/RW played CP has outplayed him. CP would not have been able to guard Russ yday due to his ankle injury, so its lucky he got him in foul trouble.
    I think Orlando/Lakers will win tonight.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Diesel’s right, Russ is not intimidated by him. Russ is a prck though. He stats from that game should of read 7pts, 8 ass (all on passes to Durant for jumpers) and 5 tos, but he shot a couple of jumpers at the end trying to pad his stats, with little to no defence being played. Mug.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Diesel, I thought CP would have won you over playing the game without being able to run? And still controlling it until Durant hit everything for a stretch.

  • http://slamonline.com nate

    @MUBWAR Let me get this straight . You offically stop hating D.rose ?WHAAT Is this world coming to end I never thought ill see the day when yu give him some praise . Lol . Only person that is still going to be a hater is @Jtaylor

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/2011 Diesel

    And I can’t remember who was asking me why I think VDN is a bad coach, but yesterday’s game is a clear example as to why. Griffin scores 25 points in the first half. Thibs makes an adjustment on his side and the Bulls hold him to 7 points in the second half…no in-game adjustment made on VDN’s side. On top of that, I literally saw 3 times where Griffin asked to be sub’d out because he was tired. VDN was running him into the ground. No substitution pattern or philosophy whatsoever. If you think Blake is good now, wait till he develops his game and teams with a coach that cares more about the game than his hair. The dude is going to improve by miles.

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/2011 Diesel

    AllBall – that’s what I’m summing up as his “hustle”. Maybe heart would have been a better word.

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    It is so good to see James-Tha-Balla’s name up here.

  • MUBWAR

    And off subject, let’s see how competitive Orlando is tonight against the Heat. Lebron will probably triple double while Bosh keeps knocking J’s and Wade will run circles all over Gil and Richardson

  • Stepfan

    Heat over Magic and Lakers over the Spurs.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    James, how you been man, how’s everything goin?

  • T-Money

    The NBA should have a Most Outstanding Player award instead of an MVP. Which is essentially what’s already happening in the MLB and the NFL. Soccer has its Ballon d’Or too. The MVP debate is polluted by too many extraneous factors (is someone due to win one, are the writers turning sour on someone else, which team has made the biggest jump, etc.) Give me an award for best player in the game. Kobe should have 3-4 MOPs by now, Jordan should have had about 10, Shaq 3-4 as well. It would be a more accurate reflection of who was dominating in any given era.

  • michelle

    free blake griffin! he played his heart out last night (watched on league pass), but his teammates were not there for him at all!!

  • http://bulls.com Harry Twatter

    @ MUBWAR I feel your pain Rose converted me 2 years ago……. Well were happy to have you aboard the bandwagon there’s lots of room.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    the crowd was yelling MVP for rose…AT the staples center. being in chicago its always surprising to see how much drose has actually blown up and is nationally known, but its great to see that he’s getting the recognition he deserves. finally.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    finally? Like Rose has been putting MVP work in for years or somethin….he just made the jump 2 months ago, it is premature if anything

  • http://dodgers.com Joey E.

    ^it was the bulls fans. the clipper fans chant MVP for Blake. I heard the chants for Rose, first free throw, second free throw the clip fans drowned them with boos. but, there were a ton of bulls fans at the game, props to them

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    lol, your right nbk.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Slam can post all the “Blake Griffin dunks on (insert Bulls player’s name here)” videos they want, the Bulls still beat that ass last night.
    I normally don’t gloat after a Bulls win, but for one I was p*ssed they last the last one against them, and two – I effing HATE Vinny Del Negro. For real.
    Honestly though, the fact that an 18-point win by a 34-14 team over a 19-29 is the most talked about game today just confirms the fact that Blake Griffin has made the Clippers relevant again. Must-see tv really.
    Blake was killing in the first half, lit ‘em up for 25 points.
    But like Diesel said, we saw in the second half the difference between Del Negro and Thibs. Bulls held Griffin to 7 points in the second half.
    Meanwhile, the best Del Negro could come up with to try and stop Rose, a player he coached for two years, was some ineffective traps and some barely effective zone defenses.
    Rose still got his, though.
    I had to watch the NBA TV broadcast of the game, so I got Ralph Lawler and what’s his name, and it was amusing listening to their thinly veiled criticism of VDN. Color commenter dude was going on about Vinny’s sh*tty substition patterns, and I think Lawler made a comment about how Deng had said in the papers how the offensive schemes this year compared to last year were like “night and day”. Hmmm… wonder why that is.

  • JTaylor21

    F*ck! Now wesley. Wasn’t able 2 c the injury. Hopefully he isn’t out 4 a long stretch. Really,really hard 2 maintain a positive outlook 4 my blazers w/all these dam injuries

  • JTaylor21

    T-Money is right. I rather they have OPOY like the NFL does, which awards the best offensive player and then they hand out the MVP award to the guy who was great at both ends of the court. Just imagine if guys like SNash and Dirk won the OPOY instead of MVP due to the fact that they suck defensively, Kobe and Shaq would have won the MVP award more than once. I’m all for it as long as there’s a standard definition of what an MVP is instead of writers making ish up as they go along.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Thank you Enigmatic… I don’t even want to imagine how the Bulls will look with Noah healthy (mostly ’cause I don’t want to jinx it!).

  • JTaylor21

    Enigmatic, Deng was talking about how the defensive not offensive schemes were night and day.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    i only say finally because the ROY, the 7 game series against the Celts, and taking his team to the playoffs his first two years with Vinny del negro at the helm wasn’t enough to convince the new drose bandwagon members back then. dudes been killing it for a while, just even more so now.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Yeah, my bad JTaylor. But the offensive schemes are night and day too. And Deng is a prime example. He used to just stand in a corner. Now he’s cutting, moving, in constant motion.

  • HAMMER

    That comment under jtaylor @ 12:26 was me. What the hell slam! Gotta fix that sh*t

  • http://slamonline.com datkid

    @diesel I was the one who asked about the coach.
    Jtaylor-its a shame wes got injured..i really like his play+work ethic. dammit if the blazers had everybody healthy, they’d just destroy people

    and heat win the heat magic matchup imo

  • Lz – Cphfinest3

    To all the people who keep saying; FREE BLAKE GRIFFIN, just stop guys. Just like King Kong Blake is freeing himself – the Clippers will be respectable by next year.

  • T-Money

    i may have to start paying attention to the bulls… it’s still looks like smoke and mirrors to me but you can’t deny the record. boozer always has issues with length in the playoffs and turns out to basically be a 270-pounder jump shooting machine. and i don’t trust anyone else but rose on this roster to get theirs in the halfcourt. we’ll see.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    not with Vinny, sorry, Carlos Boozer/Kyle Korver/Kurt Thomas/ CJ Watson / Ronnie Brewer are not the reason Chicago is this drastically improved, the loss of Del Underperformo and Addition of Thibs vaulted Chi, and the Clips gonna need the same kind of change

  • http://slamonline.com nate

    @nbk he mean finally rose get some praise because he has been putting in major work last two years . People was knocking him about his jumper , then his leadership (saying he’s too quite) now his shot taking so it about time he’s getting good notice . And I doubt that the league think its premature . that’s why teams whole scouting report says “CONTAIN DERRICK ROSE ” or that’s why teams trap him on every play or that explains why teams stop going under screens and starting going over them. But as @nbk says its a little premature get real bruh lol

  • http://bulls.com airs

    i do agree the whole mvp thing IS really premature haha. but im just sayin, its cool to see even people outside of chicago appreciating what derrick’s doin.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Rose been gettin recognition as a great young player, but it sounded like he was saying “finally he is getting MVP recognition” that is the only thing I was referring too.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Nate, come on now. Stop talking like D Rose has been an MVP guy since he entered the L. He was respected his first year as ROY, respected his 2nd year when the coaches voted him an All Star, and is loved this year by seemingly everyone.
    Know one can complain that Rose has been slept on. Well, obviously you can, but that argument holds no wieght.
    He is the frigging golden boy of the L this year, it seems.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    oh no no no, i just meant recognition in general and around the league. i was just pointing out that people in LA were yelling MVP and it was cool to see. but even as a young player it seemed people were trying to find something to hate just for hate’s sake.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    i don’t think rose has been slept on. hated on? for sure.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Yeah, hated on I would say. Go back to Slam posts about Rose prior to this season, and even earlier this season, and every other comment on here regarding Rose was “overrated” or “he sucks”.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Hated on? All the best players get hated on…..
    If your using that to say that Rose hasn’t been getting the recognition he deserves, well then you could argue it for every top 10 player.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    thing is i dont think the top 10 are hated on for their game. more for their personality or things they’ve said or done offcourt. other than that their game is respected. rose has been nothing but professional and humble but how many times have you seen someone say he’s “overrated” on here?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jahmai

    Too bad Blake cut his hair, but Drose was sick, and his defense is really picking up, and the MVP chants for Rose at staples were even more awesome.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    I disagree, but I like the way your presenting your argument.
    Kobe is hated on for shooting too much.
    Bron for having no post game.
    Wade for no effort on defence.
    Chris Paul for not shooting enough.
    Dwight for having basic post moves.

    I absolutely love Rose on court demeanor. He doesn’t complain like some one with his talent normally does, and I agree he is humble and proffesional.
    Numerous times ive seen him labelled over rated. Ive seen CP labelled over rated numerous times. It comes with the territory.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    LeBron James is constantly called overrated on here, by some people’s romanticizing of his abilities he is, Kobe Bryant is overrated by a lot of people and called overrated by others, its a two way street, some guys are going to be literally overrated by some people, and some people are going to underrate them, its the “human problem” we all seem to be different.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    AllBall, you really think Kobe haters only hate Kobe cause “he shoots too much” and LeBron haters only hate LeBron cause he “has no post game”???

  • http://bulls.com airs

    i see all your guys’ point. we all just have different opinions, and as a fan, im just stickin up for drose. but anyways! on a completely different topic, i feel for blake griffin. vinny is doing the same thing in LA that he did in CHI, he’s gonna ride blake til the wheels fall off. blake had to ask to be taken out cuz he was tired last night. remember him pushing Noah’s minutes? and the shoving match afterward. the team is nothing w/o blake and vinny is clueless.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Vinny should just become the Bucks’ mascot cause the dude just personifies the whole “deer in the headlights” thing quite nicely.
    He really does have no clue what he’s doing.
    At one point he had all bench players on the court and not a single one of them was any threat offensively, and when the Bulls started going up he had to sub in his entire starting unit again.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    The Bulls were foolish for hiring him, but the Clippers are just downright stupid for hiring him after seeing what a horrible job he did in Chicago.

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Enigmatic, no not at all!
    But, airs said that Rose is the only one hated on for his basketball abilities. That’s simply not true. Whilst Bron/Kobe’s percieved character is mentioned, so are their skills.
    Airs, I see that. Just saying that Rose isn’t the only one who’s basketball skills get brought into question. I respect the way you got your point across without being confrontational.

  • robb

    So many good young players in the league right now. These are really exciting times for basketball fans.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    haha. people may complain about thib’s rotations saying he’s leaving derrick and the starters on the bench for too long, but i see it as preserving them for the long run, probably something vinny should take note of. can’t complain about 34-14. blake played 42 min in a game that was already clearly lost.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    i don’t think i said he was the ONLY one, but he’s not hated on, nor can he be hated on for offcourt stuff, so its focused on his oncourt ability which at times can be nitpicky….okay well MAYBE the SAT thing…

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    When it comes to the very best, you have to nitpick.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Didn’t I say to feed Kevin Martin?!

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    Yup! I was loving that play too Teddy. I fckin hate Utah.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    i suppose, i like the “very best” part you mentioned haha

  • tonyknorr

    Speaking only for myself. as someone who has studied law and criminal behavior a bit I can honestly say I hate kobe because he is a r*pist. he is an incredibly talented basketball player (all though his on ball defense has always been a little bit overrated). The man is just a poor excuse for a human being, that is why I hate on him personally.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    not this again

  • tonyknorr

    @ nbk sorry to bring up old crap again just trying to bring some clarification to the above conversation between all ball and enigmatic. simply put, my point is that yes some people do hate on players simply due to off the court character issues and I am one of them. But back to basketball DRose and STAT ( if he gets his rebounds back up and plays a bit of defense) have been the best candidates for mvp so far this season simply because I think their teams would have much worse records without them. Oh yeah and ray allen better be on the all star reserves tonight.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    I can’t cosign Amare for MVP. Two games above .500? If they finish like that, can you imagine an MVP winner on a 43-39 team?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    NO my point is, unless you were directly involved in the whole colorado thing, then there is no way you know for sure if bryant did or didn’t do anything to that girl that she didn’t want

    not this again

    poor excuse of a human being. Ya, that sounds about right when we speak of Mamba.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Same could be said about LeBron, depending on who you are and where your allegiance lies.
    I’m like Switzerland though. I stay neutral.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    Or was it Sweden? Damn, I shoulda paid more attention in high school history class…

  • tonyknorr

    sigh @nbk actually there are several ways but since this is a basketball website I will spare everyone from a lecture on defense disclosure in the United States court system. @ enigmatic fair enough but if the NY can win between 48-50 games and amare picks it up a bit to average 26 & 10 or 11 boards I could still see him getting the MVP. think about it he has made NY relevant again which media voters would eat up.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    no there isn’t, actually unless you have a video or were in the room, the only thing you know is she made claims, and took money to drop it. I don’t have any opinion of these athletes as people outside of their sport, no matter what they have been accused of.

  • http://www.rich-imaging.com Dutch Rich

    @Enigmatic, it’s both.

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    If Amare ends up averaging more than 10 boards a game, dude deserves the MIP, cause he’s never been able to do that, ever.

  • LakeShow

    Blake “The Juggernaut” Griffin…

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    except he’s averaging 8.7, lower then his career average

  • http://google c_cantrell

    ok guys this has absolutely nothing to do with whats being talked about now but i gotta ask a question and need some serious opinion if yal dont mind.. my friend got arrest last night for the 3rd time within this last 9 or 10 months and the past 2 times we have been able to get him out with havin other ppl give 20-25 dollars apiece or whatever they feel like giving (cause none of us can afford to get out individually) til we have enough to get him out.. but this is the 3rd time its happened.. i feel horrible for feeling like maybe i should leave him in there (it will about 3 weeks til he can walk out, which will most likely result in him failing this semester of college) but then again some of our friends think he should sit in jail and learn his lesson the hard way instead of his friends bailing him out like always.. so what do yal think? should i try to raise the money to get him out or we just let him stay in there and fail a semester of college and hopefully learn a valuable lesson?

  • http://nobulljive.com/ Enigmatic

    I might bail a friend out once. Maybe. Twice no. Thrice? Hell no.

  • http://twitter.com/smileyoufckers Bryan

    First of all instead of complaining for Slam to fix the problem with the posting here why not pay attention what you’re posting and make sure it’s you. Idiots. It shows up who you’re posting as before you hit the send button. Second Kevin Durant is storming back into the MVP race. Beast mode.

  • Bryan

    Thanks Bryan… Wait, I’m not Bryan!!!!!!!!!!!
