Chris Paul got Clocked by Two Lakers amp Lebron did more to help him that James Harden3:36 pm Sun Oct 27 EDT

??? Yes it is. Lebron has been scoring ridiculous volume in ridiculous efficiency with huge assist numbers for a decade now, and he gets even better in playoffs. Theres like 8 or 9 seasons of Lebron that are better than prime Kobe. Thats not even a contr 2

Is it fair to call Kobe one of the best scorers of all time if he only averaged 6 ppg more than a guy like Tim Duncan 6:30 pm Sat Nov 16 EDT

This question is stupid 18

Is it fair to call Kobe one of the best scorers of all time if he only averaged 6 ppg more than a guy like Tim Duncan 6:30 pm Sat Nov 16 EDT

Yeah because Duncan is a better all-time player than Kobe Kobe is still one of the best scorers of all time -2

John Wall to Miami 7:57 pm Sat Nov 16 EDT

Its ~40% of the cap for the next half decade though, starting next season. Its above max contract money for a player that likely wont contribute with max-level player for the bulk of it. 2

Ill be working on trades throughout the day so stay tuned 11:43 am Mon Dec 2 EDT

This trade is horrific for Washington. Beal is 25 year old plug-and-play all-star locked in until 2021. They can get a huge haul for him. 2

Did anyone actually watch the video that proves Dwights accuser is a liar Because it didnt seem so conclusive to me 7:20 pm Tue Dec 3 EDT

Before his first retirement, Jordan averaged 32/6/6 on 59% TS over his career You can make the argument that Lebron is the GOAT, but peak Jordan is till the best player to step onto a basketball court -1

Are players allowed to play with durags on 9:38 pm Sat Dec 21 EDT

No. Bandanas are banned, and theres even rules on how wide your headband can be. You can wear a headband tied back, like Drummond, Holiday, and Harrell do, but thats as close as you can get. 5

Kawhi Leonard or Draymond Green who is the best defensive player 4:56 pm Mon Dec 23 EDT

Idk, Green was still the best defender of the playoffs last season by far. Its hard to tell whether hes really declining, or he just coasts super hard in the regular season. 6

Schroder is slumping, but hes not much worse than he was last year. OKC fans got way too hyped for a guy that was dumped by Atlanta for a reason. 2

Why are the 2008 C s talked about as if they accomplished something major6:10 pm Tue Jan 15 EDT

Lebron has the worst assist potential assist ratio out of the 10 league leaders in potential assists 12:45 pm Sun Feb 24 EDT

I know, but most of the PGs on this list do it as a greater percentage of their passes, so they have a better ratio. Guys like Westbrook and Fox make a lot more lob passes, where the downside is a turnover rather than a miss, and run more PnR in general, 2

If the Bucks traded Bledsoe and picks for Lowry do you think theyd be favorites to win over the Raptors 11:42 am Tue May 21 EDT
