Why is Luke Walton blamed for the Lakers defensive struggles when they the lakers were 12th 13th in DRTG last season 8:03 am Mon Nov 11 EDT

Who is the MVP of the league right now 9:53 pm Mon Nov 11 EDT

Who s a better post scorer Giannis or Embiid6:53 pm Tue Nov 19 EDT

Embiid easily, the fuck is this. Giannis is still the better paint scorer but its because of his ability to take guys off the dribble, drive, cut, and his transition game. The post game is absolutely not at Embiids level. 2

is it time to acknowledge that lonzo is a bust 1:31 pm Tue Nov 26 EDT

His career high in PPG is 13.7, I feel like Lonzo could probably match that one day. 6

is it time to acknowledge that lonzo is a bust 1:31 pm Tue Nov 26 EDT

Sure, and I remember Lonzo scoring 29 in the second game he ever played, too. Rondo managed to get all the way up to 17.3 PPG in 2012, on 50% TS. I feel like Lonzo could probably do that over a 19 game stretch at some point too. 3

is it time to acknowledge that lonzo is a bust 1:31 pm Tue Nov 26 EDT

He’s played 68 games in his career. Rondo scored 5.5 PPG on 47% TS over his first 68 games, and that team was even worse than last year’s Lakers, by a significant margin. Turns out he’s already way ahead of schedule. 2

Why isn t Kawhi the front runner for MVP 8:57 pm Wed Nov 27 EDT

I mean shit, also look at the stats. Kawhi’s are nice but in the East alone Giannis and Embiid have significantly better stats as well. 4

Embiid just completely outplayed AD in their first matchup this season9:26 pm Wed Nov 27 EDT

Yeah, this one game definitely means Embiid is better. Just like how Vucevic showed he’s at least as good as Embiid if not better, and is the true best big in the league. 28

Was there any predictions that Embiid would be playing at a MVP level this season 10:20 pm Wed Nov 27 EDT

Yes, a bunch. Kawhi, Giannis and Embiid were all thought to be top candidates coming out of the East if they could get their records right. 2

It’s not Philly’s fault, it’s the referees job to call the game properly. If Embiid gets away with offensive fouls and travels it’s not his job to call them on himself. 6

For your team would you take Prime Manu Ginobili or 2016 Klay 9:16 am Fri Jan 3 EDT

Manu, easy. Brogdon is no 2016 Klay but he’s easily clearing 50/40/90 on great volume for a 4th/5th option and he’s a much better passer and shot creator. We don’t need Klay. Manu, meanwhile, would be an outstanding option to lead our second unit. 1

Harden as MVP6:10 pm Mon Apr 29 EDT

Gonna be super hyped if us and the Rockets both lose the second round before going up to get told Giannis is the MVP while Harden has to pretend he totally thought he was gonna get it right up til it was announced. Way better than actually handing out the 1

Is Giannis legacy on the line tonight 8:25 pm Tue Apr 30 EDT

Yes, he’ll never make an All Star game again if he doesn’t perform in game 2 of a second round series at age 24. 2

John Collins was drafted 19th in the 2017 NBA Draft with the 18th pick the Indiana Pacers selected TJ Leaf who plays the same position6:25 am Thu May 2 EDT

I remember people saying the pick was shit on draft night, too. The idea was he wasn’t ever going to amount to much and Lonzo made him look way better than he actually was. Of course, Collins being the next pick up has nothing to do with anything, you 3

How can you be a top 5 player if you have nearly 0 significant accolades or conference finals finals appearences 10:02 pm Thu May 2 EDT

Kyle Lowry game into the game today leading all playoff performers in - today he game a game worst -2810:42 pm Thu May 2 EDT

Will Toronto trade Kyle Lowry this off-season and sign a PG who isn t afraid of the heightened pressure of the playoffs and plays for more than just the paycheck 12:51 pm Fri May 3 EDT

May as well stick with Rubio in that scenario, he’ll be cheaper and Lowry won’t make a difference to their massive need for more scoring. 3

Is Tyronn Lue the most successful player ever to be stepped over 3:18 pm Fri May 3 EDT

How are we defining badass? Because the balls on Hezonja to step over a guy like Giannis must be enormous, but it was a mid season game that nobody cared about where he kinda sorta dunked on him, as opposed to game 1 of the Finals. 1

Capela, Vuc and Jokic are not that big. They’re not Montrezl Harrell or anything but “insane size” is a hell of a reach. Capela’s the only one anything like athletic too, Jokic might be the single least athletic player in the league. Even Gobert i 0

He’s one dimensional if the only dimensions of basketball are shooting and dunks, yes. Although he is shooting 50% from three against the Celtics... 3

This years playoffs are by far the best playoffs in recent history9:43 pm Sun May 5 EDT

Has their ever been a more 1 sided matchup then Marcus Morris vs Giannis 8:30 pm Mon May 6 EDT

who should the celtics bring as head coach in the summer 9:07 pm Mon May 6 EDT

Relative to expectations which guard has been the largest fraud in the Playoffs 12:13 am Tue May 7 EDT

Bledsoe’s been good. His TS has dipped by like 2% because his three is a bit off but it wasn’t that great to begin with, and other than that he’s been basically the same as he was in the regular season. 1

So Are We Just Going To Ignore The Fact That 1:11 am Tue May 7 EDT

*4th best player Anybody who tells you he’s better than Middleton or Bledsoe needs slapping. Chances are he’s not going to be a heavy contributor once he does come back anyway, it takes time to get back in rhythm after this long off the court. 8

Does 24 year old Giannis - have as much pull as 24 year old LeBron 8:48 pm Wed May 8 EDT

We drafted three of our top 11 guys (depending how you count Illy). This team was built through trades and FA. 2

Kyrie definitely makes this Celtics team worse8:32 pm Wed May 8 EDT

He’s been outplayed by Marcus Morris. If he was playing like a star their season wouldn’t be two hours from ending, there’s no excuse for shooting this badly, especially when your defence is also shit. 1

Kyrie Irving finishes the first half with 13 points on 5 16 shooting and 38 TS vs The Milwaukee Bucks9:07 pm Wed May 8 EDT

Who is the better star Kawhi or Giannis 11:10 pm Wed May 8 EDT

I heard plenty of “he’s back” takes before our series because he’d strung like 6 good games together. I’m sure it was just overconfident homerism but there were definitely Celtics fans expecting him to be a serious difference maker. 1

As a Bucks fan Id rather have Philly rather then Toronto10:11 pm Thu May 9 EDT
