Whatever. It was a moronic nickname by a sports knowledge challanged dolt.

He's not the worst though, there was once this complete tard who posted here who thought Dewayne was could hit.

Rose was a dandelion much of the regular season.
Even he gave himself a 'C'.
Lots of Rose butt-lickers on here get really angry when you say something that's not so great about him.
It's pretty funny watching them all go off.

Nada, please come up to the blackboard and write the following 100 times:

"People don't realize how difficult the point guard position is in our league and how you have to run a team, take control, lead and get everybody involved," general manager John Paxson said. "For Derrick to take the ball from Day One and lead us and play at the level he played at is really, really difficult."

Once you are done with that, Nada, you may go to the bathroom.

But seriously, for all his self-promotion it's startling how little Nada knows about the game of basketball. Nada, if you're here looking for a sportswriting job, you are going about it the wrong way.

both Tiffany and Nada were wrong weeks, months ago about Rose being Rookie of the Year. Nada realized around Feb-March Rose had it. i agree with him, that it was a weak crop. doesn't diminish Rose's season. he has superstar potential. Nada knows the game. Tiffany troll Shannon has been wrong on everything, Hughes, Iverson, Marbury, Curry. she said the Knicks and Nets would make the playoffs. the Bulls wouldn't. Tiff was wrong about that other guy would win over Derrick Rose for RoY. Tiff and Nada work for Topix. they play the game of good cop and bad cop, and i think one of them is a cop. the one with the shifting geography. think about it.

oh, i also forgot. as many accolades as Jordan won, and Rose will, Bill Russell will always be the greatest player in NBA history. he knew what playing as a Team is all about.

you probably wish this was a Jordan-Bird comparison, like those McDonalds commercials, huh? Jordan, Russell, yeah a little harder, when you don't know what the freak you are talkin bout, huh? that's ok, you have a lot of uninformed company. it's all about the dumbing down of America and society. i like you Tiffany, there are books out there. or talk to people who remember Bill Russell. or someday ask Jordan who's better if you ever are so lucky to get close.
