If you've made it to the NBA, you've most likely played through junior high, high school and college basketball. At all of those levels, fans go to all kinds of great lengths to distract you while shooting free throws. If a little girl screaming makes you miss, that's on you.

It's always interesting how when little girls do little girl things, grown men can't handle it.

It’s also interesting how grown men defend it when it’s a little girl like they’re precious, and not being annoying as hell.

At the levels you referenced when has a child (of either gender) ever behaved this way? It would have gotten national attention before now, and it would have also been stopped before now. But yes keep claiming the players who made 30% more of their free throws during the season aren’t any good at shooting. As I already stated there’s a difference between trying to distract them, and letting out a murder victim Scream 36 times. But please defend the little princess some more, and go applaud Mina Kimes for calling the little brat Queen on Twitter.

The only thing I’ll say in response is I hope this doesn’t lead to other players kids (or more likely grown assed men) doing that at other games. The amount of attention ESPN gave her during the game, and that they continue to give her suggests it won’t be a one time incident. Nor was it cute. 

It will be one-time in her case, though, since Derozan said, "Nah, back to school you go" during the post-game.

Because you’re a feminist that gets hurt every time a guy isn’t 100% pro female? Oh heavens what will I ever do without interacting with you? 

And to keep this on topic you really should try to defend your opinions better if you’re going to voice such strong ones. I’m all for a debate.

I will concede the debate to you.

You have truly shown me the error of my ways.

The NBA officially doesn't count the play-in as playoff games. For instance, LeBron didn't add thirty points to his career playoff scoring total. But he also didn't add 30 points to his career regular season scoring total. It's limbo.

Anyway... Man Zion is becoming one of the biggest conundrums in sports. They aren't good enough to win without him, he likely has no major trade value, they owe him all the money... And on those rare occasions he actually plays basketball, he's borderline MVP level and they look like a serious title contender.

It's stupid that they don't count the stats. These ain't no pre-season games. They should just add them to the playoff stats.

Ugh,  can’t we keep that to the wrestling folder?

I would be embarrassed if my kid did the screaming thing.  Being on tv wouldn’t have made it better,

Easy way to settle this is with the now traditional WWE tie in.

Give us the Alpha Academy telling the little girl to SHOOOOSH with the Street Profits swooping in for the save.

Finish of the match is Gable lining up Montez for a deadlift german, only for Daughter Derozan to scream so loud it distracts him, leading to a roll up win for the Profits!

A certain DVDVR poster sees nothing wrong with this.

 

Threatening a nine year old kid because their team couldn't shoot free throws. Raptor fans creepin up on Philly fans in awfulness.

Forget it. Either Fozzie gets modded or they don’t. That’s such an unfair post though.

The first bad game of the play-in, which isn't the playoffs and has its own stats even though the stats disappear into a hole after the games are done! I wonder if this will turn into the worst blowout of play-in history, but there's no way we will ever know since we memory holed those stats!

Been in trial 2 of the last three weeks (with oral arguments at the court of appeals thrown in), so I missed the whole play in. But hey, I got to see some of SAC / GS, so that was fun!

Also, I noticed that they assigned Scott Foster for the Lakers / Grizz game. I wonder why …

File under "maybe not so much like a Rocky movie, thanks", it looked like Ja Morant just fucked up his hand severely. Looks like he'll have to shoot it left-handed for a while. And the basketball, too!
