If Kevin Durant wins regular season MVP 3-4 seasons from now at Warriors will people dismiss it 10:24 am Thu Jun 18 EDTDeleted

Why would people dismiss KD for winning an MVP? People discredit Durant for taking the easy path to a championship. They still recognize him as one of the three best players in the NBA over the last decade-ish. 2

Is any scenario possible where the Lakers get leverage over the Pelicans 5:37 pm Thu Jun 18 EDTDeleted

They have leverage now. They dont have to give up anything. They could get AD in free agency next year. They could sign an all-star in free agency this offseason. They could package these guys for another all-star thats not AD. They could keep their young 1

Which team is currently in the worst position 3:37 pm Wed Jun 24 EDTDeleted

Houston has the best scorer in the league and just made the WCF. They could return to the WCF next year with the exact same roster but not have to face the Warriors. Theyre not in purgatory, theyre in their championship window. 9

Which team is currently in the worst position 3:37 pm Wed Jun 24 EDTDeleted

The only thing established year after year is that no one was getting through the Warriors. Well see what happens when theyre in salary cap and injury hell. Harden wasnt in the Rockets way. The Warriors were. 4

Which team is currently in the worst position 3:37 pm Wed Jun 24 EDTDeleted

Gordon Hayward and a 1st for Steven Adams 9:32 am Thu Jul 2 EDTDeleted

He has the capacity to be a good center, but hes still got a lot of growing to do. We opted to play small ball 5s over Bryant most of the time. 1

The story of the Orlando Magic paying Gilbert Arenas 62M for playing 49 games 47 of which he was a reserve player To this day its still considered the worst contract in NBA history 7:35 pm Fri Jul 3 EDTDeleted

It was moderately better. Like between them, Gilbert was the only one amnestied and Lewis went on to win a championship as a role piece. 9

The Washington Wizards turned Kelly Oubre Jr Bobby Portis Austin Rivers Otto Porter Jr and Tomas Satoransky into a top 36-protected pick and a 2020 unprotected second round pick8:54 am Mon Jul 6 EDTDeleted

Im doing fine. I like Sato, but I dont think hes an integral piece of our future. Same for Portis, I dont think hes worth what the Knicks gave him. Tommy Sheppard cant undo what Grunfeld did, but I actually do approve of the way he seems to be moving on. 7

Every Warrior decision post-Jerry West has been terrible 9:15 am Mon Jul 6 EDTDeleted

Youre complaining mostly about end of bench moves and end of round draft picks. Very few GMs do well with those, and its more flukey than it is good. Look at this bullshit: Signed Quin Cook to a deal. Could have done much better. He was a minimum salary 92

Why do people like players receiving these ridiculously large contracts given that ticket prices continue to go skyward 9:07 am Tue Jul 7 EDTDeleted

Why do people like players receiving these ridiculously large contracts given that ticket prices continue to go skyward 9:07 am Tue Jul 7 EDTDeleted

Id prefer the players I care about making the extra money vs. millionaire and billionaire owners that actively nickel and dime me. Do you know how much a beer costs at Cap 1 Arena? Players dont set those prices. 10

Why do people like players receiving these ridiculously large contracts given that ticket prices continue to go skyward 9:07 am Tue Jul 7 EDTDeleted

Thats not how this works. Player salaries (collectively) are based on the percentage of revenue that goes to the players versus percentage that goes to the owners. How much any given player makes has NOTHING to do with ticket prices. Owner greed has eve 1

Shut the Front Door People on this Reddit actually believe Lebrons 2007 team was a good Finals team 4:40 pm Tue Jul 7 EDTDeleted

Z wasnt horrible for a supporting cast, he was quite good, and Boobie Gibson elevated his play like Ray Allen did for Miami. In terms of stardom, he was a one man show but his team was competent. Just like when Dirk won it. -3

The timeline of events in Last Dance is super annoying10:29 am Tue May 19 EDTDeleted

I liked the format, I may be in the minority. Things were generally chronological but with the 98 season as the anchor, interspersed. So in the Pippen episode, its Pippens chronological career, jumping back and forth with 98. In the Phil Jax episode, it 1

My Newest Mock With Discussion Description and Projections 4:36 pm Tue May 19 EDTDeleted

Re: the Wizards > CORE: Beal, Rui, Bertans, Wall, Brown, Vassell, Robinson, and Ish Jerome Robinson and Ish Smith are not part of our core. Thomas Bryant and Mo Wagner are more than those two. Maybe even Bonga. Bertans expires at the end of the season 1

Without Mo or Bryant we have no center, and both are far more promising than anything Jerome Robinson has shown. 1

What was Wade like going into the 2014 NBA Finals10:19 am Wed May 20 EDTDeleted

It was the knees, not the age. A shitload of guards are still effective at 32 years old. 2

What is stopping players from using others dunk packages 12:22 pm Thu May 21 EDTDeleted

Real life is not 2k. Players dont have "dunk packages" that belong to them. If a move works for you, it works for you. Every player in the NBA grew up trying to emulate another NBA player. 4

Why isnt Luka Doncic more highly touted 3:13 pm Fri May 22 EDTDeleted

4 Months9:42 am Tue May 26 EDTDeleted

It did drop like 20-30%, it just recovered very quickly. It doesnt need quotes. It did happen. This post is garbage though. Its a 5th rate "We Didnt Start the Fire." 1

How can the NBA resume in Disney Land if state restrictions dont allow it yet 10:21 am Tue May 26 EDTDeleted

Why did you italicize the section about retail businesses? The NBA is very much NOT a retail business. 1

Will Kevin Love make the Hall of Fame 12:14 pm Tue Jun 2 EDTDeleted

> he was a legit mvp candidate for multiple seasons Getting MVP votes does not make you a legit MVP candidate. Voters select a top 5. Typically theres one to three "legit" candidates and the rest of the top 5 (on a given ballot) were just guys that al 1

Do you guys think at any point in the 2020-21 season fans will be allowed back 7:53 pm Tue Jun 9 EDTDeleted

Honestly, I wouldnt be surprised either way. There is A LOT that can happen between now and next season. It may not even be a 2020-2021 season, it might just be a 2021 season. 2

Mavs would have been a higher seed if Fluka Dogshit didnt chuck his team out of multiple close games 4:57 pm Wed Jun 17 EDTDeleted

Luka Doncic doesnt close out games well. You are 100% correct about that. You seem to have neglected, however: * They would be out of the playoffs if it wasnt for his first 3.8 quarters of play each game so... you take the good with the bad. * Hes just 2 1

Dumb arguments made by bron fans1:34 pm Tue Jun 23 EDTDeleted

So instead of countering one of those arguments, youre just making a "Bron fans are dumb" post, assuming that will somehow be productive and non-divisive? 3

History of accolades won by players under 51011:45 am Sat Jun 27 EDTDeleted

Its a history of players under 510, not 510 or under. The question would have to be players under 6 to include Iverson. 0

Redrafting the 2014 NBA Draft9:39 am Thu Jul 2 EDTDeleted

Yeah I think you gotta take the guy with 5 65+ game seasons over the guy with 0, especially when theyre so similar in terms of impact. 1
