Rudy Gobert is the DPOY9:17 pm Wed Mar 17 EDTRemoved

Couldnt defend himself from the virus though, so Ill give it to Giannis. 1

Should Lebron be awarded the MVP and potentially a championship ring if the season is ended prematurely It s not his fault this is happening 9:16 pm Wed Mar 17 EDTRemoved

I would give it to Giannis. He has one of the best PER seasons of all time, and with the elimination of the rest of the games, Lebron cant make up the last ground needed for MVP. No reason to cancel the playoffs. Even if you cancel the rest of the regula 2

Which teams benefit the most from this season being suspended Which teams lose the most 10:36 pm Wed Mar 17 EDTRemoved

Milwaukee benefits the most. Gives Giannis time to rehab his knee injury properly and get ready for the playoffs. 1

I think we should all appreciate and praise LeBron regularly on this sub before he fizzles out and ultimately retires9:33 pm Thu May 6 EDTRemoved

People didnt stop bashing Kobe because he retired. Up until the end of January you could find all sorts of Kobe hate littering this sub. 1

Stephen Curry is the only player born in Akron Ohio with 3 rings on the same team4:39 pm Wed May 12 EDTRemoved

Also the o lot player from Akron to not lose to the other player from Akron multiple times in the finals. 2

How would Michael Jordan be viewed if he had stayed retired after the first time Is he still undisputed GOAT 11:01 pm Sun May 16 EDTRemoved

Definitely not undisputed GOAT. He basically got to the point that Lebron is right now, where you can discuss him with the greats like Duncan, Kareem, Magic, Bird, etc, but you cant elevate him to that GOAT status. The second three-peat is what took Jor 6

Charania Although multiple Lakers players are part of the movement to sit out as a measure against social injustice James is not involved in the coalition that wants to sit out games10:49 pm Fri Jun 18 EDTRemoved

I wouldn’t trust Donovan Mitchell. He’s a massive diva. He’s the type of dude to infect his teammate with coronavirus and then blame his teammate for giving it to him. -1

Tyler Herro will be Kuzma 2 011:45 pm Wed Jun 23 EDTRemoved

I think Herro will turn out fine because Jimmy has taken interest in him. Duncan Robinson is the real prize goat though. 2

Bill Simmons Accused of Preventing Diversity at the Ringer10:25 pm Mon Jun 28 EDTRemoved

They actually don’t have any black people on any of their NBA podcasts, do they? KOC and Vernon are great, but all their other NBA shows were a train wreck on that feed (Group Chat, Heat Check, etc). Definitely could have axed some of those train wreck 10

With the end of the Spurs in sight which new franchise do you expect to keep the longest streak of playoff appearances 5:59 pm Wed Aug 18 EDTRemoved

Dallas, Miami, Denver, and Boston would be my best guesses. 2

James Wiseman is a pretty good franchise center replacement if you do make that trade at least. I think Warriors just take Wiseman themselves though. 1

Do you think Kawhi regrets choosing PG over LeBron and AD 6:35 pm Sun Aug 29 EDTRemoved

He tried to recruit Jimmy Butler to play with him on the Clippers, which would have left SGA and their draft picks on the team and generally make them a better team. Wonder what went wrong that made it so Kawhi couldn’t close the sale. 1

Portland was a case of well wishes10:25 pm Mon Aug 30 EDTRemoved

The 28th ranked defense never had any shot at taking out a one seed. Not sure why people got their hopes up. For comparison, the Mavericks have the 18th ranked defense which makes them pretty much average on defense, while having a better offense than th 2

It’s a shame that Curry missed the bubble. Would have loved to see what he would have done in the bubble. 3

Players who are disciples of Curry 11:15 pm Sun Sep 5 EDTRemoved

Tyler Herro. I think he personally looks up to Booker, but Miami’s training staff is developing Curry-like skills in him. Lauri Markannen also is influenced by Curry. (Or at least before Boylen broke him). 3

So nba tv is 20 dollars a season what does it include 10:39 pm Mon Sep 6 EDTRemoved

It includes NBA TV the channel. There arent any more playoff games that will be on it live, so it will just be game replays and their studio shows. Their app is shit too. 2

So nba tv is 20 dollars a season what does it include 10:39 pm Mon Sep 6 EDTRemoved

Not on the US League Pass plan. I think some of the foreign ones like India includes playoffs, but US you need cable because the games are on ESPN and TNT which blacks them out on league pass. 2

Lets go to Steve Javie to confirm whatever terrible call was on the court Steve how did you see it 9:43 pm Wed Sep 8 EDTRemoved

Its a shame that Steve Javie doesnt pop up on TNT broadcasts too, because Stan Van Gundy would tell him hes shilling for the refs and will quote the exact line in the rule book to tell Javie why hes a fucking shilling moron. 2

A foul is a foul no matter when it happens9:53 pm Wed Sep 8 EDTRemoved

And even if he wasnt fouled on that play, he touched out of bounds before he let go of the ball. And even if he didnt touch out of bounds before he lets go of the ball, George Hill was standing out of bounds with his hand on the ball. 6

Through 3 quarters James Harden has 13 points on 2-12 shooting 1-8 from 3 with 6 assists 2 rebounds 2 steals 1 block and 4 turnovers11:02 pm Wed Sep 8 EDTRemoved

Time for Harden to enact the nuclear option and call for a trade to the Warriors so he can get his ring. He clearly cant be the guy on a team. 1

Anthony Davis is averaging 29 and 10 on 66 True Shooting these playoffs why isn t he in the conversation for best player in the league 8:29 am Wed Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Anthony Davis played with Jrue Holiday who every NBA player and media member thinks is the best defender in the NBA and who should always be an allstar. It’s not like he didn’t have quality teammates. 6

If Jimmy Butler and the Heat win the finals and he gets FMVP will it cement him as the best player in the league 5:55 pm Wed Sep 15 EDTRemoved

No, but it would cement him as the best leader in the league. 7

If Harden must be traded after this season as a Harden fan I hope he somehow ends up in Miami I wonder if that Heat culture coaching and system can fix his worst tendencies 10:58 am Fri Sep 17 EDTRemoved

I think they would trade Herro, Nunn, salary fillers, and picks if it meant getting Harden. Would probably need to have Harden demand a trade specifically to there to pull that off. I think they’d do a Bam and salary filler for Harden trade straight up 2

If Harden must be traded after this season as a Harden fan I hope he somehow ends up in Miami I wonder if that Heat culture coaching and system can fix his worst tendencies 10:58 am Fri Sep 17 EDTRemoved

Will it hurt Kawhi s legacy if the raptors win it all or even just make the finals 10:05 pm Fri Sep 17 EDTRemoved

No, because they needed Kawhi to teach them how to win late in the playoffs. Kawhi also has all his San Antonio success too, so hes not as highly rated just solely off the Raptors championship run, and he also dragged them through that Philly series, whi 1

Question is a foul on an inbound a tech 9:07 pm Tue Sep 21 EDTRemoved

Miami already used their challenge, and the NBAs review system is so stupid they dont review important calls like that to get it right. Miami already got screwed into a loss in the Milwaukee series on a replay situation. 2

Miami beating Lebron in the finals is the kind of poetic irony that we all deserve to witness 1:04 am Thu Sep 23 EDTRemoved

Kawhi is not a fun guy -- My experience10:55 am Thu Sep 23 EDTRemoved

The Heat and Nuggets getting so far in the playoffs is proof that the Bubble has a major impact on results9:46 pm Thu Sep 23 EDTRemoved

Seems more like the refs let getting booed by fans impact them too much, causing the home team to be favored, which favors the higher seed that gets more home games. 1

Is this the easiest playoff competition Lebron has faced in his career so far 8:33 pm Sun Sep 26 EDTRemoved

Depends on if Miami is the real deal or not. (Celtics, if they get to the finals, probably just get destroyed by AD). His West run is pretty soft, but so were a lot of runs to the final. If Miami is a pretender, then this is probably his easiest run, be 0

Assuming the Heat wins the series and reaches the Finals where would you rank this Jimmy Butler carry job compared to other carry jobs 11:33 pm Wed Sep 29 EDTRemoved

Its not a carry job, its more similar to the 2004 Pistons / 2014 Spurs. His 30 and 40 point games against Milwaukee were huge though and were legendary games that helped them get to this point. 1

If the Lakers win the title this year then LeBron and Kobe have the best narrative legacy out of any players11:47 pm Sat Oct 2 EDTRemoved

Combine Jimmy Butler and Jaylen Brown top 5 player 9:07 pm Tue Oct 12 EDTRemoved

If LeBron were to lose to the Heat would it be worse than losing to the Mavericks 10:18 pm Tue Oct 12 EDTRemoved

No, Lebron is old. He shouldnt even be this good still. The loss to the Mavericks was in his prime and included ugly stuff like him mocking Dirk for being sick. And if they lose this one, Anthony Davis probably choked even worse than Lebron will have. 1

Why would Golden State want Siakam 6:27 pm Mon Jun 28 EDTRemoved

Getting rid of Wiseman and the 7th pick to upgrade Wiggins into Siakam is an insane move. Wiggins even scored more efficiently than Siakam last year. If you’re going to do that, you might as well make it a three team trade and trade Steph somewhere bec 1

If the Bucks win the chip should the Bucks consider firing Coach Bud 9:45 pm Tue Jun 29 EDTRemoved

Trade Jrue Holiday for Ty Lue and the Bucks win the championship this year. 1

If the Bucks win the chip should the Bucks consider firing Coach Bud 9:45 pm Tue Jun 29 EDTRemoved

Im starting to get the vibe that were going to have an epic Chris Paul chokejob leading to an epic Budenholzer chokejob to Ty Lue becoming the GOAT coach. 6

Has the 2021 playoffs been the craziest when it comes to stars being injured10:13 pm Tue Jun 29 EDTRemoved

Just last year we had Jimmy, Bam, and Dragic all get injured in the same half. Giannis got injured in the second round. Westbrook missed the first 4 games of the playoffs to injury. Gordon Hayward got injured, and Ben Simmons / Sabonis both missed the pla 1

Milwaukees Championship Window is Dwindling11:15 pm Tue Jun 29 EDTRemoved

Middleton should age decently and can take over playoff games. I think he should be good to compete for the next 4 years or so. Bucks need to explore using Holiday to upgrade the roster. Not sure what type of trade they can get, maybe something to swindl 3

The Bucks own their 2022 pick11:52 pm Tue Jun 29 EDTRemoved

Just going off what that SI reporter said. Obviously if Giannis is healthy then they just run it back. 0

The Bucks own their 2022 pick11:52 pm Tue Jun 29 EDTRemoved

Would Bucks fans even want to keep Jrue Holiday if Giannis is out next year? He would be 33-years old in the finals if they make it in 2023, and at that age the risk of a decline is getting pretty big. 0

What players seem to shine the brightest when it matters the most 9:43 pm Thu Jul 8 EDTRemoved

Jimmy Butler has 2 of the best 3 NBA Finals game scores, so should probably include him. Mikal Bridges is a sneaky one. He wins a championship on average every 2 years and does it by letting other players shine on offense, scoring efficiently when he get 2

If Curry had 1 2 3 Finals MVPs would he be in the top 10 all time 3:50 pm Fri Jul 9 EDTRemoved

Curry is tough to rank because his story isn’t finished being written yet. There’s plenty of guys he could pass up if he has a good next 5 years and stays effective into his mid and late 30s like CP3 has done. Funnily enough, a lot of his legacy pro 1

That punishment? Reverse the KD sign and trade and send Wiggins and 7th pick to the Nets (the stuff gotten for D’Lo) and KD back to the Warriors. 1

If Suns Win Tonight And Booker or Giannis Test Positive for Covid-19 Before Thursday Would NBA Hide it 7:30 pm Tue Jul 20 EDTRemoved

If Suns Win Tonight And Booker or Giannis Test Positive for Covid-19 Before Thursday Would NBA Hide it 7:30 pm Tue Jul 20 EDTRemoved

The NBA would make an emergency measure and fly in Stephen Curry, challenge him to make a half court shot in 5 attempts, and if he makes it they would give him finals MVP, the championship, and a large donation to charity. If Curry fails to make a half 2

With this Bucks title there s no more excuses11:55 pm Tue Jul 20 EDTRemoved

Also need to pass up a trade for another all time great so that you can get Monta Ellis and remain bad enough to draft the all time great that leads you to the championship. 4

Do you think Giannis will finish ahead of Curry amp Durant on the all time list11:47 pm Tue Jul 20 EDTRemoved

He has a pretty good chance at it. He won his first championship at a younger age than both Jordan and LeBron and he works his ass off. My only concern for him is the Bucks dont seem like they have a great roster for the long term, but who knows what cou 1

Who was the last All-Star who played his entire prime with your team 3:07 pm Sun Jul 25 EDTRemoved

Technically Felicio. But if we’re talking about guys that have actually had a prime, then Noah. Prime ended and then he went on to ruin the Knicks cap for a few years. 1
