    [–] Audio: Howard demanding staff to create fake twitter accounts Achilles982 6 points ago in howardstern

    Ok, at least this means he is not delusional that he is relevant as he used to be.

    [–] I know people who’ve cancelled due to the endless book promotion Achilles982 2 points ago in howardstern

    I stopped listening regularly in 2010, and completely stopped in 2011-2012.

    He is just not as funny. His show became a routine, and I hate to say it, because its going to sound insulting, but he got too old honestly. I mean he looks great for his age, and is OK on the radio for a 65 year old, but he is just not as quick, not as witty, not as honest, just overall not what he used to be.

    I listened some interviews back in 1990s and that was so fucking good.

    But what happened to his upper lip? Did anyone else notice that?

    I can only imagine that he had to have some nose surgery so he can breathe, they must have lifted his nose or something, so his lip looks weird as a side effect.

    Thats like a double pointer you have there.

    [–] Jusuf Nurkic "Happy Summer" curse Achilles982 6 points ago in nba

    I am from Serbia, part of my family is from Bosnia, let me clarify.

    Jusuf Nurkic wore tshirt with Bosniak war generals. Not Bosnian, but Bosniak war generals. Bosniaks are Bosnian muslims, who fought in 1990s against Bosnian Serbs and Bosnian Croats.

    Day that Nurkic wore that shit wasnt a memorial day, but a vicotry against fascism day, meaning fascism from WW2.

    It was completely unnececary for him to wear shirt with some Bosniak war generals from 1990s, that had nothing to do with fascism or WW2, on a NBA game against a team whose main star is Serbian.

    He didnt. And it wasnt a memorial day in Bosnia, but "day of victory against fascism" would be litteral translation, meaning fascism from WW2.

    Nurkic wore BosniaK war generals from 1990s war(not Bosnian, but Bosniaks, who are Bosnian muslims who fought against Bosnian Serbs and Bosnian Croats)

    Yupe, he cant stand Michael Malone because he chose Jokic over him.

    [–] Nadal vs joker rivalry Achilles982 15 points ago in tennis

    Because they played 38 times, Nadal won 23 times, Federer won 15. Altho last couple of years it did change, federer won 5 times in a row. But for most part of Federers career , he had tough time beating Nadal.

    [–] Nadal vs joker rivalry Achilles982 25 points ago in tennis

    As far as true tennis rivalry, with out a doubt.

    People are still generally more excited about Federer vs Nadal, just because those two are way more popular then Novak, even though those matches are way less interesting because Nadal is a very bad matchup for Federer.

    But Novak and Nadal played 53 matches between each other. The most matches two tennis players played against each other in open era.

    [–] One thing that shows how Howard really did and does love Artie... Achilles982 2 points ago in howardstern

    Its different with Artie. He does ghost Artie, but when he talks about him its different then when he talks about anyone else.

    [–] One thing that shows how Howard really did and does love Artie... Achilles982 6 points ago in howardstern

    Bro list. Best argument ever on stern show. Artie was a juggernaut when it comes to arguing on air. Litterally destroys anyone

    [–] French Open pep talk with Uncle Djoko and Micaela Bryan (daughter of Bob Bryan) Achilles982 2 points ago in tennis

    Little do they know, bottles that Rafa puts in line bring him luck, but if opponent knocks them over, that brings him extra luck.

    [–] Why is it that a lot of sports analysts still regard Vlade Divac as a bad GM? Achilles982 -1 points ago in nba

    its not the best run, but its not that bad. They are not the worst organization. If Zion got to play for Sacramento , kings might be one of the most exciting teams to watch next year.

    [–] Why is it that a lot of sports analysts still regard Vlade Divac as a bad GM? Achilles982 -7 points ago in nba

    I mean lots of GMs get lucky on a transaction or two. The real proof is sustained success, and Vlade's first move after his best season ever (which didn't even produce a winning record) was to fire his head coach.

    The only way we can see if this was the right move or not is to wait next season. People were saying exact same thing when he traded Cousins, turns out it was great move by Vlade.

    It seems like the Kings got lucky on a couple moves, but they've done little to show that it was more than luck.

    Listen, you cant say just "they got lucky". He chose Buddy Hield, he chose Fox, Marvin. That goes to his credit, you cant just say "he was lucky".

    He is not amazing GM, im not saying that, but come on, THE WORST GM? He is BY FAR not the worst GM in NBA.
