probably b/c they reward hard play and not knucklehead play and crying..
plus, hard to make a call there when it was a fluid strong move.. bodies bounce off that dude..
“This is a better team with out Al. They are so unified and every body plays together. No one demanding to do anything but play hard and win. ”
i just have to LOL at this comment…
but it was a charge..
Zaza 3-for-3, 6 points, 5 rebounds for those of you still wanting to trade two rotation players for Chris Kaman (0-for-10, scoreless in 18 minutes in NO’s loss last night to these same T-Wolves).

Why is Stack house on the team? couldnt we have kept Benson?
His feet were moving bigdave how was it a charge?
“we gotta step it up..
i was the one to step it up”
w/ grill showing..
that was quote from one Professor Ivan Johnson..
Ivan just said the team had the mindset that this was supposed to be an easy game for them…..that’s amazing to me that they continue to think like that.
it was clearly not a charge if you look at the replay again
Ivan with his first NBA interview.
Ivan sound like a gangsta
January 14th, 20129:24 pm
I thought josh was hood…
horrible interview though
The Spook who sat by the door
Ivan was the better Johnson tonite!
Debo is a darn good name, especially after the interview that I just watched.
Vlad played well. Vlad had 7 boards, 3 assists, a steal, a block, no turnovers, and a big 3 (+16).
ivan w/ the classic interview..
Ivan is a man of few words…..his interviews aren’t exciting
lol @ big lou – agreed.

“76ERS PLAYING GREAT D AS ALWAYS”
Yeah, y’all held that powerhouse Wizards team to a mere 90 points. Let’s see that’s well below their season average of… oops, my bad, their season avg. is 84. something.
Well until tonight that is.
Stack is the Player Coach. That is the only reason they wanted him on the team. He pulls people aside and tells them what they are doing and what they need to do.
Ivan’s teeth and face is enough to scare little kids into nightmares.
But I love it. Dude is mean.
Ivan makes ZAZA look even worse than he already is
January 14th, 20129:26 pm
Did yawl see Ivan’s layups with both hands. Left … Right
i wish the team was as HONGRY as Ivan is….I hope he doesnt change.
January 14th, 20129:27 pm
Great come back Hawks!! And what a great game by Rubio! This kid is going to have a great career in the NBA.
Thunder destroying the Knicks. Up by 23. 70-47.
I wasnt a charge it was a flop ala Lambieer Johnson cant help it be cause he is physical in the paint. He does more with less than Al did with 6′ 10″ 250.
This team is better with out the locker-room drama that Al cause by his refusal to play defense and constant nagging about playing center. Ivan, its the size of the fight in the dog. I hope Al had a good seat to watch this.
Thanks for showing us that its not the size of the dog in the fight

And Teague got 20 points and 10 assists
“The city has fallen in love with u”..
A man of few words but much energy and many a rebounds..
Ladies and Gentlemen,lets give up it up for Ivan Johnson!!
(Clap Clap Clap)
Wow, Ivan saved them. Amazing.
Ivan Ivan! He needs more time Coach! Put him in! Go Hawks!
Rev in Tampa
OKC is giving the Knicks a good old fashioned BEAT-DOWN, 70-47 at HALFTIME.
70 points in a half?
Winning by 33?
Knicks with the SUPERSTARS and the RIM-PROTECTING CENTER?
January 14th, 20129:29 pm
MattP They could have hired coaching help. We need players.
January 14th, 20129:30 pm
20 points and 10 assists and 8 TURNOVERS
January 14th, 20129:31 pm
January 14th, 20129:32 pm
I agree, I wish they keep Benson. I was just saying he is there for the coaching and not playing time. LD should have fired one of his lazy assistants and made Stack one.
“Ivan makes ZAZA look even worse than he already is”
Yeah so lets trade two rotation players for Chris Kaman… lol
Buddy, okafor put up 16 & 14 against Love. Marvin +heinrich gets us okafor today
Great win tonight. This twolves team is gonna be good.
January 14th, 20129:33 pm
I loved Ivan’s interview – he’s pure, raw, unadulterated blue collar goon! Which is exactly what this team needs, Falcons could use him too!
Cut stack and lets get a player
January 14th, 20129:34 pm
Ivan plays hard, with a nasty demeanor, but he is fundamentally sound. Rebounds with 2 hands, layups with left/right hand, makes FTs. Sund needs to consider his contract!
Marv and Hin> love
Let’s give Willie Green some props too. 10 big points in the second half. 4 of 6 shooting.
“This team is better with out the locker-room drama that Al cause…”
WOW! did I miss when Al became a cancer to the team? TS, you really overachieve
January 14th, 20129:35 pm
JT was 20pt, 10asisst, and 6tuneovers, not 8. That happens sometimes when you have a true PG. That’s just 2 more then Rubio and JT played 6 more minutes.
January 14th, 20129:36 pm
Blue Collar > delicate Al
Smoove: 4-13 fg, 0-3 ft, 0-1 3pt, 5turn
