So just to clarify KD joins the Warriors and forms a super team during his FA and he has disgraced the integrity of the nba PG requests a trade during the first year of his deal and forms a super team with the FMVP and he s a genius savior to the n7:38 pm Sat Jul 11 EDTRemoved

In my opinion Harden, Giannis, and Kawhi should be around the same (within 1-2 ranks). Id put Lebron, KD, Curry, Kawhi, Giannis, Harden but its really close. Jokic should be ahead of Dame maybe Luka I think Oladipo and/or Sabonis should be in the top 1

Which Team should Sign Draymond Green 9:54 pm Fri Jul 10 EDTRemoved

He signed an extension with the warriors. Also Draymond is a 16 game player not an 82 game player. Only the Pels, Mavs, and Grizzlies should even consider signing him in this scenario 1

Congrats you re now a GM Which player do you pick Larry Bird Kevin Durant or Kobe Bryant 1:15 am Sat Jul 25 EDTRemoved

Bird is probably the most loyal so I would take him. KD and Kobe both at least threatened/considered to leave. Bird would give me years and wouldnt just leave like other players. Plus the talent and ethic of bird is pretty up there 2

Do you have an issue with the NBA rigging games to be more competitive and creating more dramatic moments1:20 pm Wed Jul 29 EDTRemoved

I don’t think refs are rigged but I think they’re told how physical they should allow the game to be. The closest thing to rigging is Draymond 2016 suspension. It was warranted but a retroactive flagrant is unprecedented 1

Is Marcus Smart a small Rodman 3:32 pm Wed Jul 29 EDTRemoved

The most impressive part of Harden s game against the Mavs wasn t even his offensive production It was the fact that he guarded the ball handler 1 on 1 down the stretch5:15 am Sat Aug 1 EDTRemoved

Harden has the ability to be good at defense. He has improved recently, but hes still prone to lapses in crucial moments or just being tired when hes carrying the offensive load. The former is why I think he gets more criticism because the latter happens 2

The 7-0 run ended the Lakers11:21 pm Sat Aug 1 EDTRemoved

Assuming that Curry and KD arent on here due to them now playing this year. But if you consider leadership important I feel that AD may need to be out of here and CP3 or Joel (debatable) may be ahead of him in terms of their leadership though skill is les 1

My top 9 I am a big leadership guy 9:25 pm Fri Aug 28 EDTRemoved

Thats fair enough. However, I think Embiid is similar to Jokic but worse than AD in talent so it gets a bit fuzzy 1

My top 9 I am a big leadership guy 9:25 pm Fri Aug 28 EDTRemoved

Jokic just let Gobert, who is one of the worst offensive starting centers, drop 24 on him. Not sure he is way better than Embiid. Embiids team is a much worse fit for him than Jokic’s is for him. 2

My top 9 I am a big leadership guy 9:25 pm Fri Aug 28 EDTRemoved

Who is a good matchup for jokic on the defensive end then? Embiid has a better 3pt%, scores more points,rebounds more, has better defensive stats in general. It is certainly not a run away for either player 1

Tobias Matisse Phillys OKC pick for CP3 Nader4:37 am Mon Sep 14 EDTRemoved

If Kawhi loses game 7 should he get labeled as a superstar choker like Harden and Giannis 3:22 pm Mon Sep 14 EDTRemoved
