    he only won the three point contest once. bird won it three times. allen houston only entered it once and was eliminated in the first round, incidentally.

    Big difference between Bird and Kerr was that Bird was the Celtics primary offensive weapon, so that he often drew double teams regardless of where he was on the floor. Kerr was a secondary option behind Jordan and Pippen, and generally only shot if he was wide open. Bird wins this debate hands down.

    if you're asking who was a better offensive player overall, yea. no question. who was better at that specific skill... i don't think it's quite that cut and dried personally. especially since you have ray allen to mention in that as well. and arguably reggie miller.

    EDIT

    bird's 3pt% was under .400. and barely over it during any season he played. i think it's dubious at best to say he was obviously a better 3pt shooter than kerr.

    Wow. Cavs take down Bulls without Kyrie. Didn't see that coming. Future is looking bright in Cleveland.

    Amazing how much worse we are on defence with Taj not out there.

    Boozer is so bad defensively. So bad

    The Good: Starting off Oscar Sunday (one of my favorite days of the year) on a great note, the Lakers did this:



    A niiiiiiice Kobe (38 points)/Dirk (30 points) duel that ended in an exciting Laker win, semi-unusual in Nash's offense (20 points) and the bench continuing to improve (since D'Antoni has limited their rotations to basically Blake-Meeks-Jamison). Normally this kind of game features these team's positioning their seeding in the playoffs, rather than fighting to just make them. And it's not breaking news that Mark Cuban is sometimes a **** (context:http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story...omments-kobe-bryant-amnesty-were-hypothetical).



    The Bad: The following night in Denver (in which Kobe still gets booed more than in any other arena in the league), this happened:




    Too much Wilson Chandler, Lawson & Cory Brewer... would have been a worse loss for the Lakers if not for them going 8-19 on 3-point shots. And to add to that annoyance: I was coming down with a possible cold during the game, so I went to our pantry to see if we had any soup... the only can left was corn chicken with bacon flavoring. Terrible, terrible soup, but I forced myself to eat it since there wasn't another option. As it stands, 3 games out of the 8th seed... the potential for the final regular season game (at Staples) against Houston to be for the right to be the 8th seed brings out all sorts of potential feelings & thoughts. :p

    Nice comeback by the Grizzlies last night. The Grizzlies were trailing Dallas 51-26 with 5:25 to go in the second quarter, then went on a 36-4 run spanning intermission, including a 20-0 rally to open the third quarter. I'm sure Cuban loved that game.

    wow. 20-0 run sounds like playing a video game.

    Yeah, I almost turned the game off in the second quarter. That's 8 in row for the Grizzlies, but that's being overshadowed by the Heat right now. The Grizzlies play the Heat Friday night. Should be a good one.

    That has been headline news in Philly for the past few days. What a completely reasonable meltdown. Doug is absolutely justified in that. I love how you can hear the 76ers' press manager attempt to wrap it up 4 or 5 times and Doug just keeps ignoring him and taking more questions. Building this entire team around a center who has never played has driven the poor guy mad.

    pretty rare yeah, i think ibaka had one last year. hakeem had a quadruple double once.

    i watched that game last night, and also impressive was that noah only attempted 12 shots. he should have had a bunch of assists too, but his teammates kept missing open looks.

    apparently the last time a player had a 20+ point game, 20+ rebound game and a 10+ block game was the mighty Shawn Bradley in the late 90's.
