    Default Catch Sportscenter tonight? (Darko)

    In case you didnt. Check it out...

    What do you guys think?

    BTW, is there an "around the league" forum on here? Or is this where the only NBA section? I couldn't decide where to post this.

    The Pacers forum serves that purpose as well. I believe we had one for a while but it wasn't used very much and a good deal of us here are Pacers fans in particular but also NBA in general so it's convienent for us to have all of the professional basketball related posts in one place. I haven't seen the video yet, I'm almost afraid to ask... hrm.

    Wow, thanks! Darko is the greatest! He abused...Desagana Diop!

    Do you have any good Jason Maxiell videos from preseason?

    How was that impressive?

    Darko is 7 feet tall; that dunk is something he should be doing on a REGULAR basis.

    I do not get impressed by people doing things that should be normal for them.

    TO clarify, 7-footers do not typically blow by people off the dribble from the top of the key and dunk on them. Even fewer are able to do it with their off-hand.

    It was still a bad idea to post this here, FP22, just FYI. Darko's a punch line. Unless he drops 50 on somebody, he's always going to have that rep.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005

    Off-hand? Isn't he left handed?

    He really didn't blow by Diop. Yes it was over him, but he was playing D the whole time.

    Yes, he's always going to have that reputation until he proves something during the season continously. Just like fans are going to hold Bender to the rep of him being injury-prone. It's not like we're being unfair to Darko, just because he's a Piston.

    Yeah, and if you noticed he drove to his right.

    To his credit, Darko's leading the NBA in blocks right now. It's only preseason, but I still see that as a positive. He's a really big guy, and he runs as well as any 7-footer in the NBA. His defense is ready, offensively he's still a work in progress.

    Figured you were talking about the dunk being off-handed, considering it followed the dunk aspect and not the drive.

    He better be leading the league in blocks...he sure picks up the fouls quickly!

    He'll learn with time though. He's being aggressive which is the most important thing.

    I just don't think we need the video and stuff...I can post a sweet video of Bender dunking on some scrub in preseason if I wanted...on a Pistons board.

    I'll be impressed when he dunks from the arc with the off-hand.

    As Kstat has already said, the dunk is not the real impressive part of it (though it is nice to see him go strong like that since some people consider him soft). The impressive part is the fact that he's over 7-1, weighs about 260, and he has the quickness and ball-handling skills to drive with his other hand. And Kstat, I know it was dangerous to put it on here, but I figured some of the posters would be objective about and admit that there must be something there. You're average 7 footer doesn't do things like that.

    Again...should I post a video of Bender on a Pistons message board pulling the exact same move as Darko did? Or shooting a 3 over his defender? Or dunking on someone from near the free throw line? He's just your average 7 footer after all...

    Please do so. I haven't seen much of Bender, and I'd be very interested to see it.

    And BTW, it's not just that Darko is 7-1. He's also about 260 pounds (as opposed to Bender's ~220). Size like that shouldn't move so well.

    Bogut will stat-wise (more minutes). Darko will progress-wise.

    Ron's 260. Should he move that well? Should we post good moves by Ron?

    It was a good move, for a player that's been playing professional basketball since he was 13. Good, not great, not above average, just good.

    The best thing for me, is that it was on Diop. That's just because being dunked on is extremely embarassing. (not that I would know )

    In an attempt to move this thread off topic, speaking of getting dunked on, I wish I had video of Bryant Matthews (who is currently trying out with the Raptors) in the summer league dunking on Nbudi Ebi of the Timberwolves.

    One of the top 3 dunks I've seen of all time...no joke. I'll try and find it somewhere.

    LOL - and KStat dissappears from the thread!

    It was a good move - not a great one. Moves like that are to be expected from a person drafted as high as Darko was. That's all we've heard is how athletic he is, now we've finally seen some of it. I have no doubt the kid will be very good someday. His biggest problem is that he is on a very talented team with very talented people in front of him. But to come on here and act like that is best move ever made by a 7 footer is a little crazy.
