Every time I see this guy I'm reminded that the Knicks picked him 20th, just before Rondo. Knick fans were booing the selection on draft night.  What a poor decision by the Knicks at a time when they were in desperate need of a point guard. Oh well. ;D

In an alternate universe, absolutely no one is arguing over whether the Celtics are better without Balkman.

That video is pretty crazy though; seems like a guy who's got a lot of frustrations with how his life's turned out.

Funny thing was they were on a 5 or 6 game winning streak before this happened.

I think its just frustration, he only scored 6 points at that point in the game.

 Dude better be careful over there. He thinks he's tough in that video but those dudes fight dirty. He needs some therapy or something.

Irrelevant. If someone else fights, doesn't mean you should too.

what are you talking about. I'm simply saying that before you choke someone in a totally foreign country you should respect the fact that your not in Kansas anymore. He could get killed over there if he's not more careful.

It's probably just a improper, indirect translation, with no exact English word for its Filipino equivalent. But whatever, there's a lot of brusque words :)
