They were terrible at scoring in the paint last season as well. Adding Hayward doesnt help by THAT much. It just seems to me like the way their roster is constructed and their style of play isnt conducive to scoring well in the paint which makes their o -5

We have no real proof of that. Not this iteration of the Celtics. And the other contenders for that spot have a much more complete offensive arsenal. Celtics cant draw fouls or score in the paint -10

Im also basing it off last season where they were 2nd worst in the league in points in the paint. Yes you added Hayward but that wont magically make your team good at scoring in the paint. 1

[They were 16th last season according to NBA.com](https://stats.nba.com/teams/misc/?sort=PTS_PAINT&dir=1&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season) Though tbf the rockets were bottom three so I see your point. -2

A friend and I are having a debate Who is better Kyrie or Lowry 12:10 am Mon Nov 9 EDTDeleted

Which sucks because hes not a bad coach. Sure their sets in the half court arent great but theyre a fastbreak team. Slowing down the game would be stupid. Not to mention his hands are tied up by the many flaws of the roster magic constructed 2

Toronto 19

Lillard Or Kawhi buzzer beater 9:56 pm Sun May 17 EDTDeleted

Lillard purely in terms of how impressive the shot was but Kawhi if you include the context of a game 7 and how much pressure was on him to do everything 1

He was guarded by like 3 guys at the same time with 4 seconds to go ... also of course he shot 39 times, no one else on the team could buy a bucket -3

Knox is not "historically bad". For a starter he is, but starters are above average NBA players almost by definition. So all that means is that he’s a below average NBA player, which is perfectly normal for a rookie 0

Lmao you’re really dooming a 19 yo rookie to be a career backup at best because he didn’t perform well on a horrible team? Ironically Ingram was as bad as Knox currently is when he was a rookie. 1

Just a reminder that Kevin Knox is not good10:15 am Wed May 20 EDTDeleted

Lol I didn’t even hear knicks fans say that he was better than Tatum/ingram/Kuzma. In fact I heard a lot more people call him *literally the worst player in the league* than people saying he was as good/better than Tatum/Ingram/Kuzma 0

Just a reminder that Kevin Knox is not good10:15 am Wed May 20 EDTDeleted

Ah yes because all you need to evaluate players is VORP. If you gave Ben mclemore 30 minutes a game and told him to shoot 10-15 times a game on a horrible team you really think he’s be doing better? 1

Does muscle mass have anything to do with free throw percentage 11:21 pm Tue May 26 EDTDeleted

Kawhi and KD both go to NY but the Knicks add no other new players Whats their record 11:24 pm Tue May 26 EDTDeleted

51 wins With a very slow start. Like 4-10 type slow start. KD and Kawhi’s games don’t mesh well together at all 7

Its too early to say that Giannis can be the best player on a championship team And Im a diehard Bucks fan 11:53 pm Thu May 28 EDTDeleted

Wtf he’s most likely gonna win MVP and he’s one of the better defensive players in the game, this is dumb 1

I don’t see how he’s a better shooter than he showed honestly. He shot 67% from the FT line. And he shot from the college line. So yeah the only discernable skill advantage he really has over Zion is being able to go right. Imo that’s not anywhere 1
