Re: Pacific Islanders GooooOOOOOOOONE

I don't think I've ever referred to somebody as Pasifika, Pacific Islander or Polynesian. It might be because I grew up with a lot of friends who identified as Samoan, Tongan, Raro, Tokelau, etc.

Re: NBA season 2020/21 Finals - Suns v Bucks

I just found out the Giannis is only the 3rd player to win the Finals MVP, Regular Season MVP and the Defensive Player of the year over their career.

The other two players? Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan.

Re: NBA season 2020/21 Finals - Suns v Bucks

I like Giannis. He's a throwback to the era of a generation ago when players dominated in the paint, before they changed the rules to suit the guards. He's just won a championship with the team that drafted him. I rate Giannis' championship with the Bucks more highly than KD's two join-the-bandwagon...

How do you view Tony Woodcock? I have no idea what you're referring to, so take your best shot. You gave your opinion on Kepu - I was wondering if you thought Woodcock was a dirty player. Just as a yardstick. In terms of potential foul play? I just can't recall anything. What have you got?
