hell, i say we take the money we have left and give Curry a shot....if he is willing to take a one year contract, what is the worst that could happen?

He could die. I'd love to be at that game with my kids.

You're a sick person. Please go away and don't ever come back.

And I'm serious about that.

If he would of added the :rolleyes: smiley behind it, I don't think anyone would of had a problem with it.

I just took it like he said "I would love for my kids to be at that game. :rolleyes: "

He was making BigDawg44 the "butt of ridicule" by showing the the worst possible thing that could happen.

BD asked what was the worst that could happen, so he replied by saying he could die. I hardly doubt that he would really want his kids to see that.

I know I often times answer a question by using the opposite meaning in a sarcastic tone. Like when my gf asks me if I want to go shopping, I'll say "YEAH, that would be great" and then roll my eyes.

Let me put it this way. It offended me that anyone would say such a thing for any reason, even in jest!

Lighten up. It was meant in sarcasm.

And seriously, if the dude can't get insured he shouldn't be playing. The last thing I think anyone would want to see is someone dying because of a game.

Did you guys seriously think he wanted to watch somebody die on the court?

If he has a serious heart problem, it's a possibility. And I often take my kids to the games and I'd hate for them, or anyone else, to see it happen.

I'm sure most of the people around here remember the tragic story of John Stewart, the center from LN who died on the court from a heart attack, but if not, here is a link........

Why does that offend you? If Curry plays pro basketball with a heart condition, he very well could die on the court, in front of hundreds of families.

Now, you wouldn't exactly want your family to be one of the hundreds to see him croak, right? I think that was his point.

ill go Sean Penn on this one. Not that I think Penn was right coz Rock is my main man! This though is tasteless sarcasm... wrong media. Educated enough to define sarcasm, not educated enough to recognize when to observe tact. What those who say they were offended probably meant that if they wanted to hear shock comedy and dark sarcasm, they'll go elsewhere not PD.
