Zach LaVine looks like hes about to have a breakout season 10:55 am Sun Oct 25 EDT

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

SERIOUS Hypothetical What will happen if it comes out that Lebron James uses PEDs 12:02 pm Thu Nov 19 EDT

Which circle jerk was worse Jayson Tatum after the playoffs last year or Luka Doncic right now 2:46 pm Wed Dec 9 EDT

Hes clearly worse I agree but just numbers wise its pretty close. Also Ingram has been a big reason for the lakers defense 2

If your OKC Who would you rather play First Round Lakers or Rockets 4:21 pm Thu Dec 10 EDT

Durants effect on Golden States style of play amp The other side of the toxic environment 3:09 pm Fri Dec 11 EDT

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 12 EDT

his terrible ball handling and footwork really hurts him in the half court. 2

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 13 EDT

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 31 EDT

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 31 EDT

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 31 EDT

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 31 EDT

Its like saying tony Parker was overrated 1

Will we ever see a team like the warriors again 8:24 pm Thu Dec 31 EDT

No the cap spike allowed them to sign Durant. We might see a team with 2 mvps but theres no way they have another 2 all nba players and amazing glue player like iggy. 1

With all the talk of Anthony Davis trades 8:06 pm Thu Jan 9 EDT

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

How good is Kevin Durants all-round game other than just scoring do you think 11:08 am Fri Jan 10 EDT

B. Hes an above average passer rebounder and defender but isnt elite in any other aspect of his game. 2

Can Zion be a point forward 11:05 am Fri Jan 17 EDT

Yeah. I also think hes got draymond potential defensively 1

Can Zion be a point forward 11:05 am Fri Jan 17 EDT

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 22 EDT

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

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 22 EDT

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 24 EDT

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

Is Harden this season better than Curry s unanimous MVP year 10:59 am Thu Jan 30 EDT

It definitely makes this team better. This team cannot win without what hes doing right now and youre ignoring how great their record has been since Paul went down even though theyre 5-5 in their recent stretch 6

KD Lebron Steph On Off Stats Shocking 8:58 am Fri Jan 31 EDT

We dont realize it but we are witnessing the decline of Lebron James right before our eyes 10:16 pm Tue Feb 18 EDT

As Lebron fans WE need to admit KD is better now 9:54 am Tue Feb 25 EDT

Youre forgetting that lebron beat the team Durant lost to in 2016 and then Durant went and joined that team. We havent seen Durant with any real adversity the toughest series he had was Houston and he did not really perform well like he did in the finals 4

Okay r nba We fucking get it 12:02 pm Mon Mar 2 EDT

Slow day at work? 47

Why people think Curry is better than Kd 12:13 pm Tue Mar 3 EDT

You realize curry beat Durant when they had pretty similar teams in 2016. Dropped 37 in game 7 to clinch it. 0

Seriously If Lebron is No Longer the Best Player Why Cant It Be Curry 12:34 pm Tue Mar 3 EDT

And curry had 37 in game 7. Series outcome isnt the best way but both of the teams were pretty evenly matched. Durant had westbrook ibaka Adams while curry had Thompson green iggy and bogut. Currys roster was more well rounded but westbrook was better tha 2

At the age of 34 Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to the best record in the league and their 3rd title in a row5:07 pm Tue Mar 3 EDT

Fun fact Lebron James ranks 60th in the league in FGs made outside 3 feet behind guys like Andrew Wiggins Jeremy Lamb and Collin Sexton5:48 pm Wed Mar 11 EDT

He shoots nearly 70% of his shots as threes or 3 pointers. About 30% in this mid range area where hes shooting higher than 35% prolly about 39-40%. Thats not terrible from mid range. I dont see what your point is besides hating 1

Shaq had a better prime than Kareem3:41 pm Thu Mar 12 EDT

LeBron has less rings but he beat the best team of all time is a highly flawed argument In fact he beat an average finals teams that s been struggling with the injuries 11:16 am Fri Mar 13 EDT

KD did exactly what Lebron did in 2010 He raised the bar 9:37 am Wed Apr 22 EDT

The difference is he played within salary cap rules. You cant even create a team as stacked as golden state because they hit the timing perfect with the cap jump. Golden state isnt even getting crushed by the tax which is the ridiculous part. Miami was at 11

Do you consider teams like the Bad Boys Pistons Heatles and Hakeem Rockets as dynasties 4:29 pm Tue Apr 28 EDT

Do the Raptors win The title if they had Blake Griffin instead of Siakam Last year 9:11 pm Mon Oct 12 EDT

eh its not that simple. for a team like the raptors they didnt need another scorer. they needed what siakim does with perhaps a little better shooting. Blake is a better pure scorer and distributor but he acts best as the focal point of an offense with s 1

Serious Did LeBron and his camp really didnt foresee the backblash he is facing now with the statement he made 10:23 am Tue Oct 20 EDT

Why is it a problem that the players are protecting their best interests when Morey deleted the Hong Kong post to save his job 10:09 am Tue Oct 20 EDT

Morey also said he was misinformed himself and apologized. Morey also had enough money to never work again and he has enough skills and intelligence to work in a lot of different jobs. Its ok to admit he also bowed to china like the rest of the league 1

At what age do you guys think LeBron would turn into a net negative player on the court 11:31 pm Tue Nov 10 EDT

first off use true shooting or points per possession or just dont use anything. Using points per shot makes no sense. He has a true shooting of 544 this year as the sole offensive creator on a terrible team. For reference Jayson tatum has a true shooting 1

Mussatto LiAngelo Ball has joined the Oklahoma City Blue as a practice player5:16 pm Sun Jan 3 EDT

honestly props for him for not giving up. maybe he can carve out some type of role for himself. 1

How did Milwaukee get better despite losing Brogdon5:20 pm Fri Jan 3 EDT

Giannis got better by a decent margin. Middleton has played more efficient and theyre making up for the loss of brogdon with the play of George hill, connaughton, and divencenzo. The real question is will those guys step up in the postseason like brogdo 1

Why do people say KD-Warriors never had competition The had 2017 Cavs amp Houston Rockets 9:02 pm Fri Jan 3 EDT

2017 warriors were just too good. 2017 cavs were good but that warriors team mightve been top 3 ever. 2018 warriors were a fair bit worse and 2018 rockets were definitely an immense challenge. Basically the only competition they had was the rockets. 4

Now playing on his 4th decade in the NBA Vince Carter probably has the most airline miles recorded mankind history8:54 pm Fri Jan 3 EDT

Why are the Nets so bad 9:15 pm Mon Jan 6 EDT

Losing our best 3 players hasnt helped and were in a huge shooting slump. 3

Why are the Nets so bad 9:15 pm Mon Jan 6 EDT

Why are you posting this on r/nba if youre a nets fan. Youd probably know the answer if you watch the games. Seems like a troll knicks fan or something 0

Saying it now because the media swings are ever changing Kuzma is not only staying with the team for the entirety of this season at the very least but is also going to show significant improvement as he adjusts into his role ala Kevin Love9:13 pm Wed Jan 8 EDT

youre acting like kuzma was really good and now has to adjust. Hes never been great just had potential. 1

Is it really that unlikely that Kyrie is sitting out this season for the future his image12:56 am Thu Jan 9 EDT

Its different when its for like 2 months dude. Yeah when he misses one game its obvious but not when its 2 months 1

Do you think Kevin Durant wouldve been surpassed by Curry Harden Kawhi if he never joined GSW 9:20 pm Mon Jan 13 EDT

its funny because people say he had enough to win without GSW but then also say he would never win a ring if he didnt join them 3

Zion is expected to be back vs the Jazz on the 16th what do you think the Pelicans record will be from the game he gets back to the end of the season 7:29 pm Tue Jan 14 EDT

He will give it to us. I was rewatching the preseason the guy is just a freak 1

META I think posting full articles from the Athletic is fucked up and it should not belong on r nba7:03 pm Tue Jan 14 EDT

Pirating has been shown to help revenue. Honestly I wouldve never gotten an athletic subscription but Im considering it lately mostly from reading things people copy and paste from it. Its a balance if its too accessible like nba streams then theres no re 2

Hardens scoring is obscuring the fact that Giannis is having a historic scoring season too Hes averaging 30 ppg in 30 6 mpg - no-one has ever averaged more than 24 ppg in less than 31 mpg 4:03 pm Wed Jan 15 EDT

Pretty much but theres just not much you can say when theyre on a 70 win pace. It is strange tho even in big games and losses he doesnt play more than 34 mins. Perhaps a new part of a rest strategy 1

You can put it another way. Giannis is having a historic per 100 scoring season. Hes scoring 44.9 per 100 which would put him 6th all time. Hes actually close to harden this year whos at 47. 1

Kyrie had a -24 when he led his team to a loss against the Philadelphia 76ers tonight9:42 pm Wed Jan 15 EDT

Its weird actually having haters but is funny 1

Kyrie had a -24 when he led his team to a loss against the Philadelphia 76ers tonight9:42 pm Wed Jan 15 EDT

Look at his numbers the last two games. Second half of back to back against a great defense. 3rd game in 4 nights returning from injury. Hes averaging 28-7 with 2 turnovers a game with a 28 per and 9 bpm and people somehow are blaming him. 4

Kyrie had a -24 when he led his team to a loss against the Philadelphia 76ers tonight9:42 pm Wed Jan 15 EDT

The revisionist history on here about Luka is getting ridiculous3:23 pm Sun Jan 19 EDT

Makes no sense to not criticize basically any team in the top 7 since they couldve traded up for him like Dallas did 1

Jimmy Butler VS Kyrie Irving Who is the biggest cancer to their team in a losing situation 4:50 pm Sun Jan 19 EDT

People talk about Butler likes a super star. Dude hasnt made it past the first round and demands trades and blows up locker rooms like hes a super star. Kyries no better but he at least gets a ton of shit for it 1

Down 1 with 24 seconds to go in a Game 7 who are the top 5 players that you trust the most to get you a bucket 1:50 pm Thu Jan 23 EDT

List you said is pretty good. Kawhi, kd, kyrie, and Butler for sure. Their mid range ability is super important. 1

Daryl Morey is lowkey a coward5:43 pm Thu Jan 30 EDT

It was funny everyone on here rushing to moreys aid when he didnt even attempt to defend himself. Most people wouldve done the same in his position if their jobs were on the line. 1

Kyrie has the same amount of 50 point games as every Eastern all-star combined despite missing more than half the season12:57 pm Sat Feb 1 EDT

Hes actually been pretty absurd this year. Shame weve sucked 1

So is anyone gonna say Kawhi choked and his team closed for him if they win Jw because last night that was all I heard10:34 pm Thu Feb 13 EDT

yeah because lebron is lebron. he gets the praise and he gets the hate. its how it is my man just accept it. 1

Why is there so much Outrage about Giannis comments 2:53 am Mon Feb 17 EDT

yeah i dont really get it. Itd be the same as if people said their plan on defense was to pack the paint against giannis. its just a honest gameplan assessment. 2

Why arent people mad at Kemba for last nights ASG 1:45 pm Mon Feb 17 EDT

This is why players havent gone hard at the all star game. Like why are players getting criticized for the all star game 3

Ryen Russillo hates lowry more than Lowe hates Westbrook 1:09 pm Mon Feb 17 EDT

I wouldnt say the term hater but hes one of the most critical media members of westbrooks game. I mean he believed westbrook was a negative asset 1

At the half Zion 17pts with 7 9 shooting and LeBron 19 pts with 8 10 shooting9:13 pm Sun Mar 1 EDT

hes scary good, and pelicans smartly play 3 or 4 out with him. IF you give him space hes just unstoppable inside. 2

What odds would you give to the NBA Finals being canceled postponed this year due to Coronavirus 7:54 pm Mon Mar 2 EDT

tough to predict. The disease will likely start spreading like crazy but might subside by the time finals roll around. I could see games being postponed for a while 4

Is Zion the best finisher the league has seen 2:40 pm Wed Mar 4 EDT

lebron, shaq, giannis, MJ. Lebron led the league in volume and efficiency at the rim for like a 5 years. 80% at the rim while leading in volume. Giannis is leading the league in volume at 78% at the rim. 0

Westbrook was robbed 9:25 pm Wed Mar 4 EDT

There is currently a thread on R nyknicks where fans are comparing Frank Ntillikina to RoCo and Dillion Brooks what is the worst case of delusion you have seen around a fan favorite 9:45 pm Wed Mar 4 EDT

Outside of that every fan base is gonna try to look at silver linings for their guys. Posting this to r/nba for lolknicks karma is trash. And yeah you cant say someone Franks age will never improve 1

Is Giannis bad in crunch time because his team is better than most so they usually have a comfortable lead and Giannis never gets experience under pressure 1:15 am Sat Mar 7 EDT

He was great in the 1st and 4th. Overall you need some support and giannis didnt really get it outside a nice burst from divencenzo 1

Can we appreciate how good LeBron vs Kawhi in the playoffs is probably going to be 1:41 am Sat Mar 7 EDT

CLARIFYING things after LeBrons take about closing Arenas because of CoronaVirus 10:31 am Sat Mar 7 EDT

theyve done over 600k tests in south korea and they say the mortality rate is less than 0.6%, not 2% that the WHO is reporting. theyre the country that has tested the most people. I agree with everything else youre saying, but Lebrons not a doctor. Perh 7

CLARIFYING things after LeBrons take about closing Arenas because of CoronaVirus 10:31 am Sat Mar 7 EDT

My point is, is he advocating that we should just continue playing like the virus means nothing, or is he just saying Im not gonna play if it starts getting bad. Youre right the quality of care is better in South Korea but its also that theyve done the 1

Kyrie and maybe KD Just Killed The Nets Culture 1:42 pm Sat Mar 7 EDT

what? Prince is one of our worst defenders and is shit at rebounding. Its clear you dont watch our squad like that. I get you dont like kyrie but dont act like you know our team when you say shit like that. 4

Anthony Davis is currently averaging more points rebounds steals and blocks than his teammate Lebron James 3:23 pm Mon Mar 9 EDT

Davis is definitely being underrated here. He doesnt do well on his own but him and lebron together is deadly and his defensive presence changed the game yesterday and against the bucks. Hes the best interior defender lebrons ever had and you can see ho 1

Are the Bucks purposefully trying to lose games while Giannis is out in order to strengthen his MVP argument 11:31 pm Mon Mar 9 EDT

yeah its definitely helping. the biggest thing giannis has had all year was record. now youre gonna say that their records are similar and even though lebron has Davis outside of that their supporting cast is really meh. 1
