Its not just since Durant got there. His second MVP year was (pace-adjusted) a better scoring year than any season Durants had. The Warriors went 73-9 and crushed everyone though, so Steph played 5 fewer minutes per game. Thats what I mean; I think hes ba 0

That aint gonna do it or even come close. Unless AD comes out and says specifically "Im not resigning" or "trade me", there isnt an offer in the league that the Pels would accept 12

Should The Pelicans Trade Anthony Davis 10:27 am Tue Dec 1 EDTDeleted

Only if he declines the extension. Thats it, theres no other scenario. Saying they should trade him 20 games into this season is just completely absurd 1

It doesnt really exist this season. I think the frustration with the Pels this season is largely *because* AD has help and the team is still hovering around 500. I think theyll go on a big run though 12

To be fair though when it comes to unassisted dunks it really is just Giannis. Prime Shaq was 65-70% assisted, compared to 85-90% for most top dunkers e.g. Dwight. Giannis has been at <60% all year 1

Fair. Young Shaq might have been too, but without the numbers its speculation. Im inclined to think Giannis probably has more just due to the increased spacing he operates in. I dont doubt young Shaq playing now would be <60% too if he wanted to be 2

Are people underrating the offensive drop-off from Reddick to Richardson 8:25 am Sun Aug 16 EDTDeleted

Also just his raw production. Reddick isnt Korver on the Cavs, hes a 20ppg 60ts% scorer. 3

LeBron 12 13 or Steph Curry 15 166:00 pm Sat Oct 31 EDTDeleted

I dont think calling it "a joke" is a fair description at all. I totally believe the injury derailed any chance Curry had at continuing his regular season form into the Finals. Youre correct in that there are better overall seasons with better playoff 3

Honestly Houston has ruined the fun of watching basketball4:44 am Sun Nov 8 EDTDeleted

What the hell does this comment mean lol. The Bucks start Giannis and Bledsoe who love scoring inside way more than shooting 3s 2

Is AD better than prime Kevin Garnett 12:03 pm Sat Nov 14 EDTDeleted

58 TS% isnt elite efficiency. Its above league average, but not particularly special given his position. The only season Id say AD scored with elite efficiency was probably 17/18. 1

Early Season Outlook9:08 am Mon Nov 16 EDTDeleted

Yeah? The Rockets have been amazing I never said otherwise 1

Giannis Antetokounmpo made his first career NBA start against Carmelo Anthony on Dec 18 2013 Giannis had 10 points and seven rebounds before fouling out Carmelo scored 29 points in New Yorks victory 3:49 am Fri Nov 27 EDTDeleted

Worst season in a while even with it being competitive 10:56 am Thu Dec 17 EDTDeleted

Your section on the Bucks was just nuts. Historic point differentials, an MVP improving on his MVP season, top 2 in offense and defense, and your argument is basically "theyre SO SHIT they dont deserve the record they SUCK". Then you expect people to tak 11

Worst season in a while even with it being competitive 10:56 am Thu Dec 17 EDTDeleted

Have you ever watched an actual game? Stop just repeating talking points and comment on basketball. Mirotic was fucking garbage in the playoffs, Brogdon got the easiest defensive assignment every night and was asked to hit open 3s. Bucks replaced that 2

Is there a chance that Giannis will really go to Golden State 12:21 pm Fri Dec 25 EDTDeleted

He was also only there for one year 3

Hardens scoring is obscuring the fact that Giannis is having a historic scoring season too Hes averaging 30 ppg in 30 6 mpg - no-one has ever averaged more than 24 ppg in less than 31 mpg 4:03 pm Wed Jan 15 EDTDeleted

There is one of those every year 1

Will Karl Anthony Towns make the all star game He is averaging 27 12 4 on 52 42 80 shooting splits however he has missed 16 games this season 6:44 pm Wed Jan 15 EDTDeleted

He would have done for sure if he hadnt missed nearly half the season. Given that he might sit out 20 games before the break I really dont see how he deserves it. If he gets it and Gobert misses out again Utah fans should riot 3

Woelfel Before last years trade deadline Bucks had reached out to Mavericks about a deal involving Bledsoe for Dennis Smith Jr10:21 am Wed Jan 22 EDTDeleted

Woelfel should be banned from r/nba just like he is the Bucks sub. Extremely weird dude who has axes to grind. 2

What new insight are you looking to provide. The world doesnt need another basketball blog unless youre looking to do something different. Otherwise its all more or less aggregation 1

Is it fair to say that Westbrook is a better player than Harden 1:20 pm Thu Jan 30 EDTDeleted

Nikola Jokic is having the 2nd best midrange floater shooting season of all time behind only Nikola Jokic10:04 am Sun Feb 9 EDTDeleted

So if hes 2nd in volume and 1st in fg% by a mile, whats the argument that he isnt currently the best? 1

Nikola Jokic is having the 2nd best midrange floater shooting season of all time behind only Nikola Jokic10:04 am Sun Feb 9 EDTDeleted

How exactly? The title is saying that hes historically good at that combination of skills, which is borne out in the data. I didnt say hes the best midrange shooter of all-time 0

If Kris Middleton wins the FMVP this year is he a HOFer 10:06 am Tue Feb 11 EDTDeleted

If he makes All-NBA 3rd team this year, plus another couple All-Star games, maybe. Thats maybe 50% likely if Giannis re-signs? Its not outside the realm of possibility maybe. He wont win FMVP anyway 2

How do you think Giannis will do in the Playoffs 4:46 pm Sat Feb 15 EDTDeleted

Dont know how you can be pretty sure about that when the only times theyve matched up the Bucks spanked them both. Obviously its possible but any LA fan saying its a sure thing is delusional. 1

Giannis scores like 10 more points per 36 on much higher efficiency. No single stat means shit, its stupid to post one with the implication being thats why x is a better player than y 12
