Bill Plaschke: matt kemp is capable of 20-90 with a .350 obp...that would be huge.
freddy: Bill, I always like to say that Ginobilli has the biggest heart of any NBA player, agree?
Bill Plaschke: freddy, I'd like to introduce you to a guy named derek fisher..
sapogi: I've lived in Philly for 4 years...you can't believe the laker-hatred there. Makes me happy to come back to SoCal and chat it up with true sports fans and root for the purple and gold
nomuskles: I wish someone could get to the bottom of why Kobe changed his number. Saying he was going back to a number he had in high school isn't a good enough reason I think.
Bill Plaschke: who knows what kobe is EVER thinking? he's a truly mysterious dude.
Fran 77: Will Ricky Williams play in the NFL again?
nomuskles: Yeah, Philly fans hate that we stomped on them in the finals and they hang onto AI's 3 pointer and Raja Bell's defense like no other.
Bill Plaschke: as long as ricky williams is breathing, somebody will take a chance on him.
Bill Plaschke: philly fans are worst in sports..
simers: would you recommend going into the sports journalism biz if a soon to be college grad were to ask you
Fran 77: they booed santa claus....santa claus come on
nomuskles: Yeah, but I love Philly fans too. Their support for the Eagles and Phils is pretty admirable when you consider how bad they've been and all the fairweather fans out here.
Bill Plaschke: yes, simers, I would recommend going into the biz, because newspapers and websites will always need content providers.
ButrosButros: Bill, you've been around for several years. Name an NBA player who's downfall was most tragic, given their physical talents and potential to contribute. I have in mind Shawn Kemp, amazing physical and potential, all gone due to alcoholism. He's still rich, but not happy. Sad.
nomuskles: Exhibit A = Angels "fans" a few years back.
nomuskles: Eddie Griffin, Vin Baker
Bill Plaschke: butros, I hate to use the word, 'tragic' with any millionaire athlete...
googoo: Bill. I think the Bruins are better when Westbrook is at the point and Collison is at the 2,,,,he just lets the shot clock get to short before he tries to set something up. What's your take?
