Carmelo Anthony late stage Kobe12:30 am Sun Oct 24 EDT

What the hell do you even think the Rockets brought him to do 3

Nobody is mentioning that Zach Lavine dropped 41 4:45 am Tue Nov 9 EDT

Because apart from Lavine the rest of the players had me wanting to wash my eyes with bleach. Missed layups, stepping out of bounds, silly fouls, butterfingers at catching passes/rebounds....I swear my mind was supplanting the commentary with the Benny H 2

Arent chances pretty high that Zion Williamson will end up like Jabari Parker 9:47 am Wed Nov 10 EDT

I highly doubt Zion can be as useless as Jabari Parker on defense. And Zion Williamson weighs about 270-285lbs. Last I checked, there are only 2 players who could possibly weigh more in the NBA currently. One is Boban for obvious reasons, the other is Ju 2

As the first option on a team would you rather have Klay Thompson or 2012-13 Knicks Melo 11:15 am Thu Nov 25 EDT

Look at the Warriors bench unit with Klay as the primary option, its not a trainwreck but honestly would that really be an offense you want to rely on for the majority of the game? Klay is probably going down as one of the greatest 2nd options ever, but 1

The Spurs should consider firing Popovich1:21 pm Sat Dec 4 EDT

Theres been a shit ton of dumb threads today, but congratulations this is by some distance the worst one yet 2

How s Gordon Hayward Doing 1:16 am Tue Feb 2 EDT

Hes had 22 games this season that hes scored less than 10pts, dont think hes right mentally as he shies away from contact and is nowhere as aggressive attacking the basket as he was in Utah 3

Why didnt the Knicks trade for AD Possible trade10:36 pm Thu Feb 4 EDT

>This way NOLA gets what they are after, a future superstar and a chance to rebuild around him Yeah for about 18 months before KP fucks off because he will take the QO to be a UFA in 2020. 1

Its a damn shame 10:07 pm Sun Feb 7 EDT

Especially in the 2003 playoffs, dude was carrying the Spurs so hard Im surprised his back didnt give out 1

The Pelicans are smart to wait3:19 am Tue Feb 9 EDT

AD doesnt like the Celtics, Ainge wont offer a kings ransom for a rental. 1

Media obligations should be a discussion at the next CBA meeting 2:23 am Thu Feb 11 EDT

Or just mumble his way through it, I know Shaq often resorted to that when he didnt feel like it 1

Sixers should target Frank Ntilikina12:18 pm Sun Mar 14 EDT

Kings are seriously fun to watch, especially when DeAaron Fox gets a runway and starts turning on the jets. 1

Lakers vs Knicks 11:29 am Sun Mar 21 EDT

The only way they could make it worse is to let some guy like Frank Ntilikina or Luke Kornet go off on them for a breakout/career game 1

Serious If PG said Dames game winner was a bad shot why doesnt he tell his own Point guard when he takes bad shots 2:42 am Wed Apr 28 EDT

He can tell Russ that all he wants, but even PG probably knows when push comes to shove and Westbrook goes into his patented "heroball" mode everything is out of the window 1

Why is Giannis so scared 10:58 pm Sat May 29 EDT

Giannis is driving into a brick wall, Raptors have the personnel to defend his drives probably better than any Eastern playoffs team so far 1

Gianniss Free Throw percentage in 4 straight losses against the Raptors 47 17 36 11:23 pm Sat May 29 EDT

Giannis just Nick Anderson-ed the Bucks when they needed him to make those free throws 1

Opinion Regardless of potential victory Raptors might be in a lose-lose situation here 11:18 pm Wed Jun 9 EDT

What is your team s starting lineup gonna be next season 3:59 am Thu Aug 5 EDT

Well since Kris "contested mid-range babyyy" Dunn hasnt been launched to the moon yet....though hopefully Im wrong and Satoransky starts? * Dunn/Lavine/Porter Jr/Young/Markkanen Ideally I want this lineup * Satoransky/Lavine/Porter Jr/Markkanen/WCJ 2

What is your team s starting lineup gonna be next season 3:59 am Thu Aug 5 EDT

Glenn Robinson III for the SF spot? Though I agree on McKinnie as he might be more familiar with the Warriors system and thats what Steve Kerr wants 2

Which teams will surprisingly disappoint 10:05 am Sun Aug 8 EDT

Youll be fine if Terry Rozier chucks up 20 shots a night sub-40% Though that cant be great for the development of Monk/Bridges etc..... 1

Who says no BOS-DET-GSW-ORL 11:41 pm Wed Aug 18 EDT

Go back to playing 2K where the trade finder is broken af, Detroit is not trading you one of the top rebounders in the league who is only 26 for basically DAngelo Russell Also Orlando says GTFOH on losing Gordon for more trash big men 1

Who says no BOS-DET-GSW-ORL 11:41 pm Wed Aug 18 EDT

Lmfao Orlando gonna tell everyone to get the fuck outta here, they lose their best player in Gordon and get garbage back 2

The 2004 US World Cup Team had AI Starbury Melo Stoudemire Wade LeBron and Tim Duncan and lost three games 2019 team is lead by Kemba Walker Donovan Mitchell and Khris Middleton 3:20 am Thu Sep 9 EDT

And a whole load of nothing in terms of spacing and fit I mean come on the 3 best 3pt shooters are likely Marbury, Iverson & LeBron. They also took Stoudemire who thrives in P&R system, and the roster is filled a bunch of isolation players. 1

Carmelo Anthony is not a Hall of Fame player 9:00 pm Mon Sep 20 EDT

And considering Melo entered the league at 19, thats still 16 years hes spent in the league. 2

Why are people outraged only when Harden tries to draw fouls 11:57 pm Fri Nov 12 EDT

I think its more that Embiid and Giannis drive to the hoop a lot more, its only natural that there will be contact as people try to wall them off from scoring. Harden is flopping his ass on almost every 3pt attempt to try and get his 3 free throws. Im s 1

Steven Adams is having the best rebounding season of his career while Clint Capela is having one of the worst rebounding seasons of his career10:10 am Sun Nov 14 EDT

I mean, I dont think 6ft tall Chris Paul is about to break any guard rebounding records any time soon so I guess Steven Adams can gobble up the boards he wants 0

Who s the worst Head Coach in the NBA currently In your opinion 6:02 am Sun Nov 21 EDT

I wanna say that bald fraud Boylen But then I also witnessed Fizdale call a timeout, draw up a play that has Julius fucking Randle shooting a fadeaway as their go-to option vs the Hornets 3

What happened to Lauri Markkanen 6:12 am Sun Nov 21 EDT

Hell no lmao, he had a great opening night with a 35/17 against the Hornets Since then hes been hot garbage with his 3pt shot, the only decent shooting game he had was a 4/7 showing vs the Hawks. He shooting 37% from the field, and is ice-cold with 28% 2

Since the Bucks will use Giannis like LeBron in the playoffs as their PG and primary ball handler what purpose does Eric Bledsoe serve since hes a bad off ball player Why not deal Bledsoe for a legit three point sniper like Danilo Gallinari 3:09 am Thu Nov 25 EDT

And Giannis is one hell of roll man to pass to, if hes open just lob that shit anywhere vaguely near him and let him do the rest 3

Since the Bucks will use Giannis like LeBron in the playoffs as their PG and primary ball handler what purpose does Eric Bledsoe serve since hes a bad off ball player Why not deal Bledsoe for a legit three point sniper like Danilo Gallinari 3:09 am Thu Nov 25 EDT

Lmfao the Bucks are not gonna start Kyle Korver, and Gallinari is of no value to them considering Ilyasova is a 3pt threat and actually tries on defense (taking charges) Bucks giving up way too much for Gallo 4

Is there any doubt that Giannis is going to Miami Heat in Summer 2021 Heat roster is like the 2019 Bucks on steroids The Bucks need to do something Drastic to make sure they win a chip in 2020 or 2021 or Giannis will take his talents to South Beach3:51 am Thu Nov 25 EDT

Or that might be his ceiling, who the hell knows. The guy is like less than 20 games into his NBA career, we have no idea how many of the Heat rookies are gonna pan out in a couple of years. Signs are very positive so far yes, but there is so much that 3

Why is it that this sub in general devalues players mostly stars that have unorthodox playstyles or aren t analytic darlings7:52 pm Sun Jan 10 EDT

So Butler plays like an old-school small forward, whats so unorthodox about that. Weve had plenty of those. Corey Maggette spent the entire 2000s doing exactly that. The only difference is Butler is a more willing passer. 2

They were average to slightly below average at defense, ranking at about 16th for all 4 full seasons that DAntoni coached. Hardly a no-defense team idiots like you paint them out to be Stop talking out of your ass and making yourself look stupid. 3

Offensive Coordinator Mike Dantoni 10:42 pm Sat Jan 23 EDT

Their average defense is more down to personnel than DAntoni, you can only hide so many poor defenders in a lineup. Their approach of playing at a breakneck pace & scoring was probably a better bet than trying to play defensively with a 67 Marion as 1

So much talent that we never got to see fully utilized Beasley could have been as much a walking bucket as KD, but never had that same kind of drive & dedication to get there. 2

Begley Contract extension talks stall between Pacers and Oladipo after a 4 year 80 million extension was approached11:51 pm Fri May 7 EDT

Hes still the highest paid player currently on the Pacers, and Oladipo has only played 46 games since his all-star season in 2018 (and not at the all-star level he was that year) Hes had some horrendous injury luck since 2018, of course the team is exerc 2

The whole Lebron vs Jordan argument is stupid because Lebron wasted 7 years of his prime in Cleveland Meanwhile Jordan had an elite team built for him in Chicago You cant compare the two players outside of counting stats which Lebrons longevity is lik12:38 am Wed May 12 EDT

Who is better the player that can get you to finals or the player that helps you win the finals 10:33 pm Sat May 15 EDT

MJ will always take the last shot, hell Phil Jackson once gave the last shot to a rookie Toni Kukoc instead of Pippen 1

Who is better the player that can get you to finals or the player that helps you win the finals 10:33 pm Sat May 15 EDT

We already saw what Pippen-led teams did, sure they won 55 games but the offense was wasnt as effective without MJ. Then proceeded to get smacked in the playoffs as other than Pippen no one could really get buckets. 1

KD is the only superstar in NBA history to not pull hoes 11:50 pm Mon May 17 EDT

Does Derrick Rose have the most dedicated fan base of any surefire non hall of fame player ever 12:25 pm Sat May 29 EDT

Rose definitely aint gonna be first-ballot, you can bet your house on that But I could see him sneaking in, possibly after a longer period of time during a lean year for candidates. But yeah Roses case isnt strong apart from his MVP, his career accolad 1

How would David Robinson do in todays league 12:10 am Fri Sep 24 EDT

What do you think of the following trade 12:59 am Tue Jan 12 EDT

Idiotic trade for both teams Lakers losing a lot of depth as Schroder/KCP/Kuz are significant parts of their rotation, all for a player who despite being brilliant might go AWOL without warning. Nets signed KD to pair him with Kyrie, they dont care for 2

Is Harden Durant as a duo underrated 9:49 pm Sat Jan 16 EDT

How many times has Harden been robbed of the MVP 1:04 am Fri Mar 5 EDT

Westbrook was the first MVP since Moses Malone in 1982 to be a 6th seed, no other MVP in between Moses & Westbrook was anything less than a 3rd seed (Jordan in 1988) It was an absolute outlier and they gave it to him on account of that triple-double 2

Would this trade work 2:59 am Wed Mar 10 EDT

To be fair people always compared him to LeBron, except they never specified exactly which LeBron Coincidentally LeBron also put up 8 points vs the 2011 Mavericks, being guarded by....*hmm checks notes*...ah yes noted 510 DPOY-candidate JJ Barea 11
