Lost in the Lakers Rockets end game drama McGee finishes with 16 points and 5 blocks 2 on Capela on 7 11 shooting1:30 am Sun Oct 27 EDTRemoved

McGee was a terror tonight 1

How do these suspensions affect the playoff potentials of the Rockets or Lakers 1:31 am Sun Oct 27 EDTRemoved

Rockets Not much Lakers Probably gonna affect them a lot Ingram could be missing a hefty chunk of games Rondo and CP3 probably miss just two 3

This will be good for Ingram2:09 am Sun Oct 27 EDTRemoved

Hes gonna be gone more than a week Probably two I imagine he will get a 6 game suspension most likely for jumping in guns blazing Cp3 and Rondo will probably get 2-3 game suspensions 3

In light of the incident from last nights game which player s in the league do you feel most deserve to truly be spit on 8:46 pm Sun Oct 27 EDTRemoved

Your mom 4

Rockets lost Trevor Ariza Mbah a moute and Ryan Anderson and got a lot worse10:47 pm Mon Oct 28 EDTRemoved

Uhm, not really. We got a bunch of new pieces and gotta let them learn our system. Plus we were missing Chris paul.other than that, our only bad loss so far was against a team with 3 insane bigs going off while two of our best bigs are hurt. 1

Is it time to call Morris better than Hayward 10:38 pm Thu Oct 31 EDTRemoved

Hayward still isnt fully healed yet imo. Its gonna take him a while to get back to where he was. 1

God, man. Melo just really makes this team suck. Hes so bad. Didnt even score a point for them tonight! 6

Jason Tatum just flopped shamelessly in the final minutes of a close game Warning incoming from the NBA 10:48 pm Thu Oct 31 EDTRemoved

They dont care anymore. We lost a game last year off two horrendous flops in a row by smart. 1

Im kinda hyped about our season. Were gonna get to upset someone in the playoffs and get a much better draft pick 1

r NBA after dark Joke Session 2:04 am Sun Nov 3 EDTRemoved

Most likely itd be two picks and two swaps within the next 4 years and Knight + Chriss. But they wont do that 1

Rockets will need to win 6 straight games in order to have a winning record Same team that took the warriors to 7 games 8:57 pm Tue Nov 5 EDTRemoved

Same team? We lost our defensive Mastermind and have had numerous injuries to our bigs and have been getting beat up. Well be all right. Its actually not a bad idea because well end up with a better pick in the end too. 1

MDA about to get fired yall lol Our offense is made around isos and now the pace is even faster. We went backwards. Iso slow worked against teams in the playoffs but we cant do that shit when the pace is insane and our defense is ass. 4

First quarter score of Warriors Pelicans is 43-3710:16 pm Wed Nov 6 EDTRemoved

I hate all these god damn fouls. It artificially inflates scores. Give guys FTs when theyre trying to make shots. Now when someone touches their hip while theyre running to set a screen or some shit. 1

First quarter score of Warriors Pelicans is 43-3710:16 pm Wed Nov 6 EDTRemoved

What a piece of dog doodoo of an argument. Our offense is based around Hardens ability to drive and pass well to open guys, and command the pick n roll. Harden gets a lot of fouls, but thats definitely not the focus of our offense, its a side effect. 1

Why are they rockets struggling so hard 4:31 pm Fri Nov 8 EDTRemoved

Harden is hurt, Cp3 missed two games, Nene, Bender, and Knight have been hurt, and weve been trying to adjust to the different style of play this year. People dont want to say it but the rule changes were to stop the way we defended the Warriors last year 1

Ryan Anderson tonight vs BKN 22 min 0 points 0 1 shooting 0 0 FT 2 reb 2 ast12:17 am Wed Nov 13 EDTRemoved

Theyre surprisingly bad at getting him shots lol Also this might be low key one of the worst trades ever. They took 20 miles in salary and garbage and gave us an expiring rookie and a guy who is overpaid and constantly Injured, but gets paid considerably 1

Ryan Anderson tonight vs BKN 22 min 0 points 0 1 shooting 0 0 FT 2 reb 2 ast12:17 am Wed Nov 13 EDTRemoved

Whats the point of playing him then? I thought they signed Ariza and Ryno to win more games, not give the young guys playing time. They should run him off the bench if thats the case. 1

Ryan Anderson tonight vs BKN 22 min 0 points 0 1 shooting 0 0 FT 2 reb 2 ast12:17 am Wed Nov 13 EDTRemoved

Then why not let him get shots? It makes zero sense. Dont play an offense only big and not let him play offense lol 1

Thunder are really fucking good at those type of wins. Even 2 years ago in the playoffs vs Thunder they almost won a bullshit game against us with like 10 seconds left. Adams misssed his shot and WB hit a 3. 1

Kevin Durant should leave the GSW in free agency this summer - and he should go back to the OKC Thunder That would be awesome 6:02 pm Wed Nov 27 EDTRemoved

Pretty sure Adams, WB, and PG alone make around the salary cap by themselves. Unless KD takes the vet min theres no chance. 1

Whose rebuild would you consider more successful so far Kings or Lakers They have the same record so far this year 12:12 am Wed Jan 16 EDTRemoved

But the Lakers had the assets to entice LeBron. Plus they gave up some really good players in Lopez and Randle to have cap space to sign whoever he wants next year. 1

I mean, if youre arguing the whole league then Id have to say the nuggets "rebuild" has been the best. They didnt even really have to tank completely yet still have the best player on any rebuilding team, except maybe Embiid. 1

Well, he couldnt do nothing if they maintained those old contracts getting rid of Deng and Mozgov. If they did a little worse and managed to do some suns level drafting (Bendar, Chriss), then they would have horrible players as well as no cap space. I don 1

If a new team come out that play a foul first defense where they fouled before they let a player ever get off good motion on a foul 12:12 am Sat Jan 19 EDTRemoved

Well, the thing is you could configure it to where you only foul in certain situations. Like you save your fouls. So start the game off like that, then filter it out as you rotate through your guys. After guys get 2 fouls then have them try not to foul an 1

If a new team come out that play a foul first defense where they fouled before they let a player ever get off good motion on a foul 12:12 am Sat Jan 19 EDTRemoved

Rich Paul really made a great business decision 3:36 pm Thu Feb 7 EDTRemoved

Well, not quite yet. He needs AD to play and ruin the Pels chance at a good pick. Then he can hurt them for not submitting. Also, Kyrie probably gone so the Celtics are NOTTT going trade Tatum for AD if Kyrie is gone. -4

Why did the Lakers trade Russell and Randle and keep their lesser young players 9:04 pm Thu Feb 7 EDTRemoved

The most ironic thing of the offseason is that if the Lakers kept Randle they most likely couldve used him to get AD. Ingram, Ball, Randle, Kuzma would be a hard deal to pass up. 1

Why did the Lakers trade Russell and Randle and keep their lesser young players 9:04 pm Thu Feb 7 EDTRemoved

They have no chance at Tatum. Kyrie is leaving and theyre not going to give all their guys away just so AD can play on a team with Hayward, Jaylen Brown, and Rozier. 1

If the Knicks get the 1 overall pick should the Lakers explore trading Lebron for their 3 unprotected 1st round picks 11:12 pm Wed Feb 13 EDTRemoved

Raptors would be the biggest problem. They dont have an answer for Gasol now. Plus theres no bad defenders to exploit for GSW. Green, Kawhi, Lowry, Gasol, Siakam aint gonna let them get very many threes or dunks. 2

Raptors are much scarier to the Warriors than Bucks. Giannis will get slowed significantly. Theyll just put KD, Looney, and Draymond on him if needed. Thatll slow him down enough that the other guys can shut down the other guys. Raptors on the other han 1

The Milwaukee Bucks Will Win the 2019 NBA Championship 2:32 am Tue Apr 16 EDTRemoved

Bucks will get shut down by good teams like the Warriors or Raptors who can slow Giannis down without needing much help. If anything this gives the Raptors the best chance at a ring, besides Warriors. 0

Youd be surprised how easily it is to manipulate a game via reffing. They can call a foul on almost every play they want. Getting Jokic in quick foul trouble or letting the Spurs play really agressive defense changes the tone of the game. They have plenty 1
