Can Niko Mirotic win 2019 NBA MVP award 4:07 pm Sun Oct 27 EDTRemoved

If he puts these numbers up throughout the season an Earl Morrall-style MVP could be in order 1

Unpopular opinion Stephen Curry is the greatest point guard of all time 9:37 am Mon Oct 28 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

If the playoffs started today Denver amp Toronto are your 1 seeds Rockets are out amp LeBrons on a lottery team2:41 pm Tue Oct 29 EDTRemoved

Yeah, thats what happens when everybodys played less than 4 games.... 0

Unpopular opinion Stephen Curry is the greatest point guard of all time 9:37 am Mon Oct 28 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 6 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

I think he might be back8:38 pm Wed Nov 6 EDTRemoved

I think hell only do this in certain situations. This is a divisional game without Jimmy. So its really important. For instance, you could expect this sort of thing in a Finals game, but your average regular season game against some tanking team in the Ea 1

How come it s a team game whenever LeBron loses but if he wins it s a carry 2:03 am Wed Nov 20 EDTRemoved

Wait, its 1 AM in the Central Time Zone. Boston is in the Eastern Time Zone. It should be 2 AM for you! Fuck, Ive stayed up too late playing Digital Devil Saga 2. 2

How come it s a team game whenever LeBron loses but if he wins it s a carry 2:03 am Wed Nov 20 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 20 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

Way-Too-Early MIP Watch6:05 pm Wed Nov 20 EDTRemoved

Honestly, you know it became obvious Oladipo was going with MIP about this time a year ago as long as he didnt get injured? Yeah, I think its Lavines too lose. Nice choice with Siakam though. He only gets peripherally mentioned as Leonard and Lowry take u 1

Why don t NBA games get played during the daytime 9:00 am Sun Nov 24 EDTRemoved

They do. On Sundays after the NFL season wraps up. 5

We should all follow him out of spite. 2

The Pelicans have 30 in the first quarter again 8:37 pm Wed Dec 4 EDTRemoved

Yeah, but the Pelicans have played liked dogshit to start games the last few weeks. -1

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 5 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 6 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

What would take for the Sixers to trade Fultz for Anthony Bennett 7:36 pm Sun Dec 8 EDTRemoved

Two or three first round picks. Fultz is only in his second year. Bennett has to play amazingly well to shake off his label of Bust. Even Bennett just becomes a serviceable role player, the Sixers are still going to be dealing with the headache of the tr 2

What unwritten rules about the NBA would you like to make up right now 9:16 pm Wed Dec 18 EDTRemoved

The ABA ball should be used instead. Ive always preferred the coloration. Red, white, and blue stands out on the screen more than the brown. 0

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 18 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

Ah. The Patriots method. If my team cant win it all, no other team can either. 1

R NBA Who currently has the absolute worst contract in the league 8:09 pm Wed Jan 16 EDTRemoved

Eh. Only if hes not on the Wizards. Hes still a franchise player. 3

R NBA Who currently has the absolute worst contract in the league 8:09 pm Wed Jan 16 EDTRemoved

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

If the Thunder offered to give Russell Westbrook for free to any playoff team they d all say no 1:59 am Tue Jan 22 EDTRemoved

Dude. Seriously? Any team in the West would take him. Can you imagine pairing with Holiday and AD? 1

It Will be Almost Impossible for the Lakers to trade for AD this summer because of simple math 2:13 pm Thu Jan 31 EDTRemoved

Bird Rights mean you can over the cap to keep your own free agents. 2

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 2 EDTRemoved

Except they arent getting the best offer. The Lakers didnt just lowball them, they disrespected the Pelicans. Not the way to do business, plus I imagine the Pelicans would rather send him East than to a team they would have to compete with for a playoff s 2

Help me understand this whole Pelicans trading AD situation 9:43 am Tue Feb 5 EDTRemoved

They wont be wrong. If they agree to do a Hayward for Hill/Moore swap on top of the "AD for assets" deal, Boston definitely agrees because Boston would be in salary hell if AD walked while Hayward was still on the roster. Hill and Moore will both be expir 1

Does Anyone Think the Celts Should Trade for an Injury Prone AD if we Re-sign a Very Injury Prone Kyrie 12:01 pm Sun Feb 10 EDTRemoved

I mean, clearly, AD is going to require Tatum, Brown, and all of the first round picks. AD will take you over the top. But in all seriousness, ADs injuries are all nicks and bruises. You ever heard of the term "Death by 1000 cuts", well, AD always has abo 1

Lakers trade Ingram for Bertans and the Spurs 2020 1st round pick Who says no 3:18 pm Sat Feb 23 EDTRemoved

Both. Neither fit with the other teams. 2

We should just delete the entire Southeast Division 0 Teams above 500 is just disgusting 11:11 pm Sat Feb 23 EDTRemoved

The Los Angeles Lakers need to go 16-3 in their next 19 games in order to make the playoffs as the 8th seed 11:36 pm Sat Mar 2 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 10:33 pm Sat Mar 9 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

The 15-16 Spurs had a better season than any team this year10:55 pm Sun Apr 7 EDTRemoved

I mean, the crazy thing is the Warriors didnt go for the record intentionally. They literally didnt clinch the #1 seed until Win #71 and at that point they just decided to go for it. Heading into their last matchup with San Antonio, the Warriors could hav 1

The 15-16 Spurs had a better season than any team this year10:55 pm Sun Apr 7 EDTRemoved

The Warriors didnt clinch the 1st seed until the last matchup with San Antonio to get win #71. It could have been even crazy a 70 win team as the 2 seed. 2

Either I’ve jinxed Portland to OT, or I’ve called it. Win-Win -3

Who is your perfect ideal coach for your team 7:34 pm Sun Apr 14 EDTRemoved

I mean, Walton still can grow as a head coach. The original plan before LeBron came in and ~~fucked~~ *accelerated* everything was for Walton to grow alongside your young core and organically grow together. 1

Who is your perfect ideal coach for your team 7:34 pm Sun Apr 14 EDTRemoved

Alvin Gentry. After watching him handle the AD *drama*, there isnt anybody else I want. Mostly I want him because Im scared the Pelicans would hire Tom Thibodeau if they fired him. And before anybody asks why I dont say Popovich, I dont think the Pelican 1

If you adjust for minutes and usage Rajon Rondo basically put up the same stats as Russell Westbrook on similar efficiency12:10 am Thu Apr 18 EDTRemoved

Look. As interesting as this stat tries to be, there is something thats called diminishing returns. Its the big flaw of stats like PER/36 and PER/48. 1

As cool as this is, there is such a thing as diminishing returns. 1

DeMarcus Cousins is finished The Barkley Injury2:17 am Sun Apr 21 EDTRemoved

If he had been willing to come off the bench for a season, he should have stayed in New Orleans. They had Mirotic and AD to start to take pressure off him returning. Hell, if they dont re-sign Rondo, they still have the mid-level exception to bring on Ran 1

How about the Knicks at 3, the Dallas picks, Knox, Frank, and the expiring Lance Thomas as another trade asset? 1

Serious Best trade partners for NOLA following the draft 9:25 pm Tue May 14 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 14 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 16 EDTRemoved

I mean if they still sign Kyrie or someone else, NYK wouldnt be too upset. I want Kyrie and Kemba (if he leaves Charlotte.) We already got Maximum Chaos in the draft. Maximum Chaos in FA! 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 16 EDTRemoved

AD is still probably going to end up in New York. The Knicks will just have to throw in more assets. 3, the Dallas picks, an assortment of other things. 4

Yes. It wouldnt be quite like the Lakers with Rondo, Stephenson, Beasley, and McGee surrounding LeBron and their young core. But it would still be interesting to watch. 1
