Just because it's true

well played. what's the statute of limitations on championship trash talk? I don't think the Sixers or Sonics talk much trash about theirs anymore (1983 and 1979).

As a lawyer, I can affirmatively state that "not winning a championship" is a continuing tort and as such, there is no statute of limitations. haha, j/k.

The only cure is to win it all. Something these two jackasses never did. Thank God!

Listen dipshit, if you actually count the two championships the Rockets had in the 90s as legitimate, you can -- sure. But any non-Houston fan laughs at that.

So, 98 percent of all basketball fans know the two championships have asterisks next to them.

And you know (whether you want to admit it or not) that had Jordan decided not to take some time off, he would have eight rings. You know that.

So, hold on to your asterisk-tainted past. Whatever.

You ready for 0-3? I smell a blowout. Can't wait for your emotional reaction.

You know what's really funny?

In the same years that the Houston Rockets won the Championships - I don't recall the Utah Jazz taking the year off and not playing.

So, shouldn't YOU be embarrassed for not sealing the deal when Jordan didn't play?

the Rockets owned the mid 90's Bulls by the way. Check basketball reference for proof. We went 5-1 against the '91-'93 Bulls.

Amaar said...

man that is probably the biggest shame of the 90s; the fact that the two powerhouse franchises could not play each other. plus i am pretty sure that the rockets raped the jazz both years

Not a Jazz fan, dipshit. Just a basketball fan. And the Bulls ruled the 90s.

Amaar said...

lets not forget that jordan's bulls lost in 95 to the same magic team that the rockets swept.

Dear Dipshit (as you are referred to on this blog, I would rather call you anonymous),

Please go and create your own blog at www.dipshitsthoughts.blogspot.com and write about the NBA there. We don't need your poorly though out comments on our respected NBA blogs. If you're such an "NBA fan" prove it by creating a blog and allowing us to make ill advised comments under the protection of the username Anonymous. You suck dude.

Sincerely,

CB Jack

I guess Rocket fans have as much class as their superstar. First of all both the Rockets and the Jazz are two completely different teams. It's not our fault your "new" rockets are losers! But if you want to bring up ancient history let me ask you this? How well do you think your Championship* Rockets could've done those two years against the Bulls?

andre said...

why are you posting anonymously dude?

and which superstar is classless?

also i honestly think if the bulls had made it both years, the rockets would have lost in 94 and won in 95

Fredo Teabaggins said...

Yeah, I agree. The Jazz played the Rockets in the playoffs both years and got beat by the better team. They had a ton of weapons and killer three-point shooting. 1995 was extremely painful because we had such a good record and just choked in game five.

I'm not sure the Bulls would have beat those Rockets teams. I'm split. Jordan was definitely in his prime, but the Bulls had - and never did (unless you count O'Neal and we all know he sucks shit) - a true, dominant center like Hakeem.

We'll never know. But one thing we do know - the Rockets got two rings and my Jazz have none. Until we get that Spurs sort-of toughness, that killer instinct, we won't. It pains me to say, but since I've been a Jazz fan since 1985 and have weathered everything, I have the right to say what I want.

I've already done the breakdown on how/why the '94/'95 Rockets would have beaten the Chicago Bulls:

every team has an opponent they match up poorly against. For the Bulls, it was the Rockets.

Problem is, for the Rockets, it was Seattle. Who was in our Conference. Oh, well.

UofTOrange said...

Am I really not allowed to post a joke on the blog? Really? Hell I even put up a joke the Jazz fans created about Mt. Mutumbo.

And the statute of limitations is until Utah wins a championship.

Plus, that picture strangely comforts me.

Fredo Teabaggins said...

As it should. I hated Hornacek until he played on the Jazz. Lakers' fans hated Malone until he played for them. I'm sure the Rockets would have loved to have Stockton and/or Malone. That's what makes sports so great, the pure blind hatred you can develop for another team and their players.

Whatever makes you guys feel better.
Just get the brooms out.

andre said...

i actually hated roger clemens while he was still on the astros; i hated stromile swift while he was on the astros for raping yao; i hated barkley while he was on the rockets even though i think he is hilarious now; i hated patrick ewing even when he was an assistant on our team

That's just a lovely picture. Nice going. Tell you what Utah Guy/Anonymous Troll - when you stop caring about someone making fun of Malone and Stockton, we'll know the statute has tolled. Until then, enjoy the ongoing futility.

Something to remember about the Bulls. They weren't totally dominant in the Finals. That's what made Jordan special. They won anyway.

The Hakeem Rockets beat who showed up. It wasn't the Bulls. And as TDS has pointed out, who was going to stop Hakeem? "Medical" Bill Cartwright? Luc Longley? Any of a half dozen truly horrible Chicago centers?

How about this - Jordan gets to be an icon because he never had to get his ass kicked by Houston. Prove that isn't true.
