Unpopular opinion Stephen Curry is the greatest point guard of all time 9:37 am Mon Oct 26 EDTRemoved

Yeah.., no, Curry is definitely up there in terms of GUARDS, but not point guards. Curry is more a shooting guard moved to the 1 due to Klay Thompson and being undersized. 1

Unpopular opinion Stephen Curry is the greatest point guard of all time 9:37 am Mon Oct 26 EDTRemoved

My reasoning is this: Curry is at his best when hes running off-screens and just in general off-ball because he can get open. Think Ray Allens game on steroids. His shooting opens up the ball-handing and passing, not the other way around like with 1

I think he might be back8:38 pm Wed Nov 4 EDTRemoved

The problem is with Rose is that you cant do this every game. You wouldnt ask a closer in baseball to suddenly start pitching 9 innings. 1

How come it s a team game whenever LeBron loses but if he wins it s a carry 2:03 am Wed Nov 18 EDTRemoved

How come it s a team game whenever LeBron loses but if he wins it s a carry 2:03 am Wed Nov 18 EDTRemoved

I want you to look at the roster and statlines of the 2007 Cavaliers that made the Finals. It should explain why this dual narrative was created in the first place. 2

How come it s a team game whenever LeBron loses but if he wins it s a carry 2:03 am Wed Nov 18 EDTRemoved

Look at the roster of the 2007 Cavaliers. Thats why this dual narrative exists. Hell, look at last year. Two separate runs to the Finals basically by himself with only nominal support at the Power Forward spot (Drew Gooden, Kevin Love.) 2

If the Rockets decided to let CP3 walk and resigned everybody back from last year would they be better they are now 3:51 pm Thu Dec 3 EDTRemoved

Their floor is higher, but their ceiling is lower with Ariza and Luc instead of CP3. They would start Eric Gordon and Harden would move back to the point guard slot instead of his traditional 2 spot. 1

The Heat ditched their winless VICE uniforms and are currently ethering the Pelicans by 31 with 3 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter9:00 pm Fri Dec 4 EDTRemoved

The Pelicans offense only works when they have a pass-first point guard on the floor. With Eflrid Payton, the only guy that fits that mold is Tim Frazier. This team is 2-9 on the road so its not like New Orleans is this incredible-team on the road. 2

Russell Westbrook Shoots 22 From Three This Season Why Is He Attempting 5 Attempts From Behind The Arc Per Game 10:46 pm Wed Dec 16 EDTRemoved

He actually ended this game injured. Explains this game. But you have to take open shots. Can someone give a breakdown between “contested” and “open” on WB? There should be no problem with Westbrook taking open shots. 1

44 M/4 year is hardly the worst contract. He was signed during the summer of 2016 so the cap bump contributed to his contract size. 1

The Pelicans are allowing pettiness to cloud their judgement Losing your star sucks but they had 7 years to make it work Take the offer that best improves your team regardless of who its from 7:28 pm Sat Feb 8 EDTRemoved

Help me understand this whole Pelicans trading AD situation 9:43 am Tue Feb 11 EDTRemoved

Hell, New Orleans could have given him a good chance to win a title AND play with AD. They could have easily brought back Rondo and Boogie at that point. All LBJ had to do was pick up his player option on the condition that Cleveland trade him to New Orle 1

AD and Jrue to Nuggets What would it take 11:33 pm Sat Mar 14 EDTRemoved

Itd be hard enough to get AD to the Nuggets. Itll be even harder to get Holiday on the Nuggets. The Pelicans have made Holiday their franchise player now. 1

Serious Best trade partners for NOLA following the draft 9:25 pm Tue May 19 EDTRemoved

Youre not. I still like your chances. #3, the Dallas picks, Knox, a trade chip in the expiring Lance Thomas would get you guys in the door. Plus as an Eastern Conference team, the Pelicans would much rather deal AD to you than some Western competitor. 1

Will the pelicans have the best young core in the league next year 10:31 pm Tue May 19 EDTRemoved

Id rather have Jrue Holiday than the 6th pick. Pelicans already made that choice once with choosing Holiday over Nerlens Noel. (Elfrid Payton made his way back to New Orleans.) 1

Its not about small market New Orleans vs big market New York with Zion was about which place has the better chance to win now 12:28 pm Thu May 21 EDTRemoved
