Zach LaVine looks like hes about to have a breakout season 10:55 am Sun Oct 24 EDTRemoved

Not at all. A lot of people thought lavine had more promise offensively than Wiggins he had a great season before they traded him, a better season than Wiggins. And he provided spacing. I saw a lot of people saying that they thought lavine wouldve been be 3

Which circle jerk was worse Jayson Tatum after the playoffs last year or Luka Doncic right now 2:46 pm Wed Dec 8 EDTRemoved

Durants effect on Golden States style of play amp The other side of the toxic environment 3:09 pm Fri Dec 10 EDTRemoved

Durants comments were painted negatively against lebron rather the media. And yeah I agree durants a little bitch about the whole thing and he is a little hypocritical regarding his own tendency to iso and dominate the ball. 0

Lonzo Ball is now shooting 31 7 from 3 this season on 4 1 attempts per game This ranks him 89th out of 106 players who shoot at least 4 threes per game10:30 pm Sat Dec 11 EDTRemoved

How would you rank Mike Conley Demar DeRozan Kris Middleton Tobias Harris and Steven Adams How many teams do you think a team consisting of them and an average bench would lose to in the playoffs 11:25 am Sun Dec 12 EDTRemoved

this is probably the second best team in the league besides the warriors warriors. I wouldnt even say toronto is better than this team. I mean tobias harris is top 3 in the west with a team that is way worse than this one... 2

If you were the Pelicans would you rather have Simmons Tatum amp Brown Ingram amp Kuzma or OG amp Siakam 11:01 am Thu Dec 30 EDTRemoved

Very debateable 12

If you were the Pelicans would you rather have Simmons Tatum amp Brown Ingram amp Kuzma or OG amp Siakam 11:01 am Thu Dec 30 EDTRemoved

You can build a team around simmons that can make up for his lack of shooting. Sixers have not done it becAuse they have two other stars but it can be done 1

If you were the Pelicans would you rather have Simmons Tatum amp Brown Ingram amp Kuzma or OG amp Siakam 11:01 am Thu Dec 30 EDTRemoved

Its true but simmons ceiling is way higher. We saw what he did with a 5 shooter lineup last year when Philly steam rolled at the end of the year. Simmons in that set up can carry your entire offense and is also a defensive stud that can play small ball 5 1

Joe Dumars is overrated2:13 pm Thu Dec 30 EDTRemoved

Will we ever see a team like the warriors again 8:24 pm Thu Dec 30 EDTRemoved

With all the talk of Anthony Davis trades 8:06 pm Thu Jan 7 EDTRemoved

I see your logic but its from a fans perspective. Ownership doesnt want to suck as bad as they will if davis leaves and then beal will inevitably demand a trade as well. Theyre better off trading him for a young stud that can get fans excited and get draf 1

Yeah. I also think hes got draymond potential defensively 1

Can Zion be a point forward 11:05 am Fri Jan 15 EDTRemoved

draymonds got 3 inches in standing reach and wingspan. Youre right that draymond is supremely unique in his long ass wingspan and mental abilities, I didnt mean to say zion will be as good as him, rather he can plaay a small ball 5 in super death lineups 2

Swap Stephen Curry with James Harden what would the stat line look like and would each respective team be better or worse 3:50 pm Wed Jan 20 EDTRemoved

I think golden state is about the same. Harden is very good offball as well and its not like Durant and Thompson are ball dominant. They run harden and draymond /harden Durant pnr just like curry. 1

They dont need to run those sets to be effective tho. They can run a million different sets with harden 1

Is this years East the toughest its been of the past 20 years 4:55 pm Fri Jan 22 EDTRemoved

Honestly think so. If golden state didnt exist (most years there isnt a team this stacked) Id honestly think 3-4 teams in the east could win it all. 12

As Lebron fans WE need to admit KD is better now 9:54 am Tue Feb 23 EDTRemoved

Why isn t Boston a FA destination 5:04 pm Thu Apr 1 EDTRemoved

Organization doesn’t have to do anything with free agent destinations. Boston isn’t a super exciting city and black athletes in particular don’t love it. 16

Why isn t Boston a FA destination 5:04 pm Thu Apr 1 EDTRemoved

Other good teams land free agents too dude. Those free agents came because your teams were good not because they view your organization as special. 3

Why isn t Boston a FA destination 5:04 pm Thu Apr 1 EDTRemoved

Again those teams from 2016-19 had a load of picks and were expected to be contenders 1

Because the organization is also kinda scummy now. 2

How differently would Kevin Durant be looked in the all-time ranking if he was still ringless 8:24 pm Fri Apr 2 EDTRemoved

Rings don’t change peoples all time rank as much as people claim. Malone is still considered top 20 all time by most. If he won a ring guess where he’d be. Around top 20. Barkley is still considered by many a top 30 guy. If he won a ring he’d probab 0

Why is no-one talking about what Charles Barkley had to say recently and more importantly why do mods keep removing it 4:47 pm Sun Apr 4 EDTRemoved

also the all politicians are bad schtick only helps conservatives. most apathetic voters are would be liberals. 4

Why is no-one talking about what Charles Barkley had to say recently and more importantly why do mods keep removing it 4:47 pm Sun Apr 4 EDTRemoved

because what hes saying is wrong. there is a struggle between the wealthy and the rich and he doesnt want to acknowledge it because hes rich himself. and there is a struggle between minorities and the system. -2

Blake Griffin has now tied the amount of dunks he had in the entirety of his Pistons career in 6 games with Brooklyn Nets 8:24 pm Wed Apr 7 EDTRemoved

Plying off ball with elite shot creators will do that for you. He’s still not close to as good as he was with pistons in 2019. Also did he really only have 7 dunks in Detroit I don’t buy that 1

He’s better mid range shooter than harden and probably a better 3pt shooter too. Harden is a much more effective driver. He gets to the basket more and gets fouled much more. 1

How many players can you put in place of James Harden that would make the Nets better or the same 7:23 pm Sun Apr 11 EDTRemoved

yeah i think AD and Giannis would be two guys whod probably improve this team over harden just because of the defensve ability. and those guys would also give u a shit ton of offense as well. theyre just superior fits. 1

Who would you rather have MPJ or OG3:24 pm Tue Apr 13 EDTRemoved

Prolly mpj. OG to me seems like he could be a great player for years but I think mpj just has a higher ceiling. Depends on what your teams needs but I think outside of teams that need to compete right now most would take mpjs offensive skill set potential 2

Why did Vegas increase Jokics MVP odds after the Murray injury 5:54 pm Wed Apr 14 EDTRemoved

interesting question. i thought it hurt his chances as well. only guess is that his stats were dipping a bit as the team was winning more. perhaps they think this will cause him to start putting up monster lines for mvp. 6

Serious Is all of this recent news perfectly lining up for a Lakers repeat 11:40 am Thu Apr 15 EDTRemoved

Why is Kobe considered a top 10 player 12:09 am Mon Apr 19 EDTRemoved

well first thing is hes not considered a unanimous top 10 guy. the reason why hes up there is because hes still one of the best offensive players in league history and he did pretty well in the playoffs as well. Underrated passer and just below the top sc 1

Bucks vs Sixers battle in next 2 games We will have a good idea who the biggest threat to the Nets are after these 2 games1:47 pm Thu Apr 22 EDTRemoved

Biggest threat to the nets is hardens hammy and durants health. After that it’s not going to matter how each of these teams match up against each other it matters how they match up against the nets 5

I’m just saying if hardens hammy is the biggest threat right now. Like if I’m the Lakers I’d be similarly worried about Davis achilles. If his Achilles ain’t right then it doesn’t matter anything. 1

They’re still gonna hve to play Utah and likely the clippers. That’s always gonna be the tougher matchups. And Denver without Murray might still be better than the rest of the west that isn’t top 4. 1

The Nets have a tough schedule to close out the season do they retain the 1 seed 10:41 am Sun May 2 EDTRemoved

It’s gonna be tough because we have one more b2b and will have to rest Durant for one of them. That’s one game we could easily drop. The only way I see is getting it is if the sixers also end up resting Embiid for a period of time 2
