    Are you going to shame every NBA player trying to box out for a rebound? Give me a breakkkk. Love did it to him on the same possession, it happens a shitload in every single game of basketball.

    Blame the NBA for not enforcing the rule, don't write takes so hot i can barely get through them.

    I guess I spoke too soon about Lillard having a good game. At least McCollum is stepping up! (And now McCollum will miss every shot he takes in the 4th)

    Jason Concepcion's take on Grantland is worth reading

    Yes that is a dirty trick that's regularly not called and used all over the league down low

    But Olynyk couldn't even do it right. He torqued hard on a dynamic play instead of a split second static trap.

    Yes, holding someone's arm down is not boxing out, neither of them are doing it right. But just because love grabbed him that doesn't mean he has free reign to grab his arm and wrench it with two hands.

    well sure, in the platonic idea of basketball they are both doing it wrong.

    however, in the NBA, this is what happens. If the NBA doesn't want it to happen, they have the ability to make it a point of emphasis going forward. If they instead dish out a stupid reactionary penalty and don't solve the problem, I will continue to not care.

    I wonder how many other dudes have gotten severe shoulder injuries from that type of play

    I mean I cant think of any of any off the top of my head, certainly possible though

    If you're speaking of the boxing out that Love is doing? He looks more like he's trying to shove Olynyk off of him, since the dude is obviously grabbing him. Maybe that's just my pov.

    EDIT: Looking at the video (I hadn't really because I don't like gross injuries), its more of a grab, but as someone mentioned above, Olynyk totally took it too far.

    From a Die Hard Cavs Fan

    (this is pretty much how everyone is feeling right now.)
    Crowder's injury was a direct result of your playground play. Had Love been in the game, Smith would've had no reason to react the way he did. Crowder's blood is on your hands, too.

    The hottest of takes.... the dumbest of takes.

    he wasn't boxing out. he FAILED at boxing out, got frustrated, and in a desperate attempt not to seem like the complete failure he is, he yanked on a guy's arm with two hands like a petulant child. What Love did to him a few moments earlier was not the same thing, and you fucking know it

    Why did J.R. Smith get more of a punishment than Olynyk?

  • ButtersButters A glass of some milks Registered User regular
    If you think Olynyk was boxing out you don't know what the term means or what it's for. You box out the opposing player to get in front of them and secure the rebound for yourself. Olynyk was out of position and pulled Love away from where the ball was headed. It's clear he wasn't trying to position himself in front of Love because he put all of his force on Love's arm and backward away from where the ball was moving.

    There is simple no arguing that Olynyk didn't take traditional arm hooking and boxing out to an extreme because he managed to rip an opposing player's arm out of his shoulder to the point of severe injury.

    Also the NBA can't really prove intent with Olynyk whereas Smith was clearly trying to knock someone out in retaliation.

    Crowder is an aggressive, physical player who was all over Smith's back prior to the foul. I think Smith's foul was much more of an "accident" than Olynyk's.

    Smith threw a punch.

    Olynyk got rough.

    A punch is always going to be more of a penalty because the intent is clear. As much as it sucks I don't think Olynyk intended on injuring Love.

    http://www.sbnation.com/2015/4/28/8500333/nba-y2k-ten-years-to-midnight
    Each player in NBA 2K15 is assigned an overall 1-to-99 rating. Out of the box, only three -- LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Chris Paul -- hold a rating higher than 90. The 99 rating is claimed by no one, a page left intentionally blank. Clearly, the 99 does not represent literal perfection: LeBron, rated 98, has shot .496 throughout his career, and I doubt we're supposed to believe that he's one tick away from 1.000.

    If 99 isn't an indicator of omnipotence, it's just another, slightly higher arbitrary number that could easily have been awarded to the best player in the game. All the same, 2K15 does not budge: "we made this rating, and we made it for no one."

    Well, I have decided that they made it for us, and for this. I created my own 99-rated player. There are dozens of individual sub-ratings for a player -- shooting, ball handling, speed, vertical, passing. I pushed all those ratings to 99, and I also stretched him to 7'2 with an 8'5 wingspan. He is gigantic, and possesses a skill set unapproached by any player who has ever lived.

    Then I made hundreds more exactly like him.

    I am a Cavs fan that lived in Cleveland for almost 25 years but even I cannot agree with this. Smith's foul was completely intentional he just probably didn't count on tagging Crowder right on the chin and knocking him out.

    it is possible to think olynyk's foul was bad or dirty or intentional without minimizing jr smith's punch

    maybe you think olynyk got too little time, but frankly only getting 2 games was the best possible outcome for smith

    If Smith hit a more relevant player or did it during the regular season he'd probably be facing an much stiffer suspension.

    I'm sure both fouls were intentional, but a two game suspension during playoffs is a lot harsher punishment than having to miss the first game of the season.

For one reason or another, you no longer do those things, or any things, together, and the reasons behind that are none of my business. Neither is this, but I've already barged in: the last time the two of you met, or spoke, you suspected it would be the very last time.

    To openly treat it as such -- the last meeting of two people across all eternity -- is a sort of a fraction of a death, and is too heavy for the moment: something that heavy would bust the framework, you would call from Dallas, and there wouldn't be a last time. This is the quiet knowledge that it's over, and the tense words that replace the processing of that knowledge.

    It isn’t dark. The bugs are chirping, but it isn’t dark yet. The sun is behind the trees, but the sky isn’t black yet. It isn’t time to come inside. We can still see the ball. No, we won’t bother the neighbors. They aren’t going to bed, because it isn’t dark yet. Our mothers would not call us inside if only they knew it was the last night of our childhood. We can still see the ball. 8:53 is the afternoon, it is the late afternoon.

    There is the moon. But it isn’t dark.

    Again, it's not the NBA's fault that the Celtics were swept away like baby men. They're not going to try to equalize games in the regulate season vs postseason. There just going off the crime and the history of the player, I think.
