    Yeah I like watching him play too, he moves around a lot, like a track athlete. He's gotta be the best cardio-conditioned athlete in the NBA.

    Ray gave the business as well. Both lit each other up. Ray played great d on him on alot of possessions though.

    Ray Allen, Joe Johnson, and Rip Hamilton are three players I love to watch. Poetry in Motion.

    no doubt about this. everytime i see him play he seems like he can go 5 quarters This is what i really admirable about Rip.

    Rip is great to watch when he is letting the flow of the game come to him. That run run until you're open gamestyle is what he does best.

    When he tries to create his own shot though, it can get frustrating. Sure, he gets it done sometimes, but he isn't too good at getting the ball in stationary offense and creating from there.

    What I like most of Rip's game though might be how he has revived the art of the midrange jumpshot. Get open, hit the midrange jump shot -with the occasional fake and drive-. Simple and effective enough.

    He was fun to watch last night, but he can be really frustrating when he is trying to take people of the dribble and turning the ball over in critical game stretches.

    seems like Detroit is going to run their crunch time offense through Rip. much like how they won the 2004 Finals.

    Dude there was no crunchtime in 2004 finals, those games were blowouts.

    My only thoughts on RIP are: Stop trying to be Kobe; pull up and shoot!

    A few things I've learned about RIP over the years that contribute to this:

    he has a whole bunch of dogs that he runs with every morning...he tries to outlast his dogs when it comes to running.

    He has never drank alcohol or smoked anything in his life.

    He (like alot of pro athletes) has a personal chef.

    He is not married and has no kids (I think)...and isn't known for partying..therefore he has more time than many to take care of his body.


    By the way, at UConn he was not a good defender...He became a good defender after a few years in the NBA.

    For some strange reason he did start playing defense in '06. Very strange to happen so late in his career.
