Potential trade involving Ben Simmons so please tear it apart even though we all kinda know the 76ers big 3 isn t a great fit 3:18 pm Sun Jan 26 EDTRemoved

76er fans will never admit their big three isn’t a great fit and won’t win a championship until they make a trade so good luck. 4

Small markets using PG as a reference point for trading seems misguided at best and Stupid at worst4:15 am Tue Feb 11 EDTRemoved

The point is if you get a guy locked up for a year, you have a year to convince him to stay. Paul George was literally like "I want to be a Laker" and never said anything about Westbrook. His year in OKC convinced him to stay. If you get a guy, you have a 1

Not being able to talk to anyone outside of your organization agent tampering is a stupid rule1:58 pm Tue Feb 18 EDTRemoved

You should not be able to offer a contract/incentive to players under contract with current teams. If that player ends up becoming a free agent then they are free to pursue. It’s like how companies will negotiate for non-solicits over their workforce. 1

Serious Why do you think hip hop culture is has always been more associated with the NBA than the NFL or MLB 2:54 pm Sun Mar 15 EDTRemoved

It’s been more pronounced among African Americans. That’s why there’s been a dearth of African American star players in the last 20 years or so when compared to the 60s/70s. I’m not making this up. 1

If the Warriors get swept or even 4-1d in the finals due to not having their best player KD does it prove they were frauds this whole time 2:46 pm Sun Jun 7 EDTRemoved

It low key is because it don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that ring. If they just won 66 that year I doubt anyone pays attention to them in a historical context. 1

Do you guys think the Warriors without KD are better than the Raptors 3:07 pm Sun Jun 7 EDTRemoved

Why is Isaiah thomas considered one of the best 12:17 am Sun May 3 EDTRemoved

Lol Steph was much better than Isiah in the playoffs and finals. The league didn’t change the rules. Stop being dumb. Do better. 1

Funny Fact Steve Nash never won a championship5:50 pm Sun May 3 EDTRemoved

The Celtics are set up to "contend" for the next 10 years, I dont even see the issue. Its not like Lowe is saying "its not a question of if they win a Championship, but a question of how many?" 3

Watching The Last Dance is making me realize how much of a non debate any GOAT discussion really is Michael Jordan is and probably will be forever the closest to the prototypical NBA player one human being can be3:23 pm Tue May 12 EDTRemoved

Jordan’s combo of stats/accolades/team dominance/lack of notable blemishes as the clear cut best player makes him a tough player to beat but forever is a long time. 2

Let s say the 97-98 Spurs make the finals and beat the Bulls Does Duncan have a GOAT argument 10:19 am Mon May 18 EDTRemoved

No, he doesnt have anywhere near the advanced stats (or regular stats for that matter) that LeBron and Jordan do. Championships arent the only thing or else LeBron wouldnt already be considered leagues ahead of everyone in the 5 Ring club. 3

Yeah these days teams are so stacked... LeBron/Durant/Kawhi/Steph account for all of the last 8 Championships. I’d throw Harden and Giannis into the category of “could be the clearcut best player on a championship team”. I mean if you throw like Dam 1
