Prime Dirk or Prime Harden5:55 pm Tue Feb 9 EDTRemoved

Prime Dirk >>> Prime Harden. It always comes down to defense. Harden is an absolute beast offensively but garbage defensively. Dirk wasnt amazing defensively, but an average defender for his position; he just gets a bad rap for being white and -3

Prime Dirk or Prime Harden5:55 pm Tue Feb 9 EDTRemoved

You misunderstand. ..... when I say Dirks position, it means his position as a Power Forward / Big Man. Post-up defense is just one part of overall NBA defense. Hardens man to man defense is actually average to good at times, but his BBIQ and team defens 1

Where do you rank Kobe Bryant on the all time list 11:53 pm Mon Mar 22 EDTRemoved

I rank him 11th, but I find it reasonable to rank him 8-12th. Hes one of the greatest NBA players ever, but there have been some that have been even greater. 5

Where do you rank Kobe Bryant on the all time list 11:53 pm Mon Mar 22 EDTRemoved

Ill list it in tiers where players are interchangeable imo: Tier 0: Jordan Tier 1: LeBron, Kareem Tier 2: Magic, Bird, Duncan Tier 3: Russell, Wilt, Shaq, Hakeem, Kobe Tier 4: West, Robertson Its just an opinion, as these rankings rarely have any su 2

Where do you rank Kobe Bryant on the all time list 11:53 pm Mon Mar 22 EDTRemoved

Yeah, again, just opinions. Personally I rank Duncan just as high as Bird and Magic, and in some ways, he was even better (particularly defensively). People always compare Duncans and Kobes careers, but I always say this; Kobe sat on the bench for 2 yea 1

The 2011-2012 bobcats vs Duke Who wins 2:21 pm Fri Mar 26 EDTRemoved

Bobcats win by 30+ points. Its ridiculous that people actually believe that even the worst professional teams (NBA, NFL, etc...) would lose to great college teams. Its probably the likeliest to happen in basketball as an individual player has so much im 1

If Harden doesnt win MVP this season is it the biggest robbery of all time 11:34 pm Fri Mar 26 EDTRemoved

Name your Space Jam 2 starting 51:30 am Fri Apr 9 EDTRemoved

Utah Jazz rookie Grayson Allen finished the first quarter with 13 points on 5 5 shooting in 5 52 minutes 9:42 pm Fri Apr 9 EDTRemoved

Grayson Allen is a picture perfect grade A douche bag. He has such a Backpfeifengesicht. Google that shit. -6

Who was the worse President of Basketball Operations Magic or Phil 10:17 pm Tue Apr 13 EDTRemoved

Jackson easily. Magic got Lebron to LA. He made some embarrassing mistakes, but still left a young core with pretty good assets to make a run for Davis. Phil gave Carmelo "Garbage" Anthony an extension / re-sign, with a full no-trade clause. Read below 1

Western conference seeding can drastically change in minutes 11:32 pm Tue Apr 13 EDTRemoved

Doesnt matter. Warriors will go 4-4-5-5 and win NBA finals anyway. 1

Do people forget the Nuggets have the 4th youngest team in the league 11:53 pm Tue Apr 13 EDTRemoved

People forget Jokic is 24. Dudes game makes him look 30 because of his savvy, veteran-like play. I really wonder how good hed have been if he had NBA level athleticism. 1

James Harden - The most unlucky player in NBA history 12:13 am Wed Apr 14 EDTRemoved

Yeah..... Harden extended his contract so hes making 40+ mill a year for next 4 years on top of the 30-something hes making this year. Hes a perennial MVP contender, healthy, in his prime. I would not call him unlucky. Unlucky is .... Greg Oden, Len Bia 1

Michael Jordan is an overrated perimeter defender due to his steals stat12:17 pm Wed Apr 14 EDTRemoved

My goodness. I have seen shit posts before, but this is just wow ... This is by far the dumbest post I have seen on this sub. Saying Harden was better than Jordan on defense is like saying Emus fly better than Falcons. 5

Portland are basically saying we know were not winning the championship so were going to at least give ourselves the best chance to win a playoff round Is that pathetic or do you understand the mentality behind it 11:37 pm Wed Apr 14 EDTRemoved

When you have clinched playoffs, and have the opportunity to rest players for 1 game before playoffs ... its a no brainer. Its a long, grueling season. And everyone is banged up. You dont risk injuries to play the seeding game. You prepare for round 1 100 5

How Dirk changed the NBA11:57 pm Wed Apr 14 EDTRemoved

Just a note ... KD is clearly a 7-footer :P But yea, Dirk changed the game as far as stretch fours/fives. Guys like KAT, Porzingis, Embiid followed in his footsteps as far as shooting bigs. 1

Why do so many guys really hate Russ 4:09 pm Fri Apr 16 EDTRemoved

Hate is a strong word. I dont hate Russ, but I dislike the way he plays basketball. - Hes one of the worst 3-point shooters in the league and continues to take 3s at a high clip. It was silly back when OKC had Durant, Ibaka etc on the floor and WB would 7

Why do so many guys really hate Russ 4:09 pm Fri Apr 16 EDTRemoved

Shot selection, knowing when to drive, pass or shoot, how to play well offball are all indicators of good BBIQ. Russ sucks at all of these. Hes amazing after he decides to drive or create plays, but often in crunch times, he will chuck up terrible shots 1

Question Do you guys think that Giannis can end up ranked above Kobe without winning 5 titles 9:07 pm Sun Apr 18 EDTRemoved

Hes on track for sure. Hes 24, about to win MVP, has a few All-NBA and All-Defensive nodes, and might win Def MVP this year. But its so, so early in his career. Dude isnt even in his prime yet. He needs to win and perform at a high level for a long time 2

Whos better Lonzo Ball or Ben Simmons 10:44 pm Mon Apr 19 EDTRemoved

My goodness this question is monumentally idiotic. Simmons has some weaknesses in his game (mainly his shooting, lack of spacing), but he is significantly better to even at almost everything basketball than Lonzo. - Better playmaker - Better FT shoote 1

KD did exactly what Lebron did in 2010 He raised the bar 9:37 am Wed Apr 21 EDTRemoved

People that think that LeBron creating a superteam in Miami is the same as Durant joining an all time great Warriors team are ignoring important context and details. Durant **joining** the 73 win Warriors team (that had already won a championship with i 5

KD did exactly what Lebron did in 2010 He raised the bar 9:37 am Wed Apr 21 EDTRemoved

Wrong. The details are the most important here. - LeBron **made** a team with 3 stars. - KD **joined** a team that already had 3 stars and a championship. That is a massive difference, and its rather silly that people conveniently choose to ignore it. 2

KD did exactly what Lebron did in 2010 He raised the bar 9:37 am Wed Apr 21 EDTRemoved

I mean, we dont? LeBron got a lot of criticism for what he did. Particularly his ridiculous "Decision". But what LeBron did pales in comparison to KDs weak move. - LeBron left a weak team (yes 13/14 Heat was weak; Wade and Bosh were injured/washed up, an 1

KD did exactly what Lebron did in 2010 He raised the bar 9:37 am Wed Apr 21 EDTRemoved

Wrong again. - The 05/06 Heat team that won the championship was a very, very different team than the 10/11 team that LeBron created **four years** later. - The 2015 Warriors team was largely **the same** as the 2016 Warriors team that KD joined, after 1

KD did exactly what Lebron did in 2010 He raised the bar 9:37 am Wed Apr 21 EDTRemoved

Wrong yet again..... Like 80+% of the team was different. - Spoelstra was not the head coach in 2006. Van Gundy coached until he resigned, after which Riley coached them to a championship. Spo was an assistant coach. - Wade and Haslem were the only play 1

Who else is excited for HOU-GSW rematch in Round 2 10:50 pm Wed Apr 21 EDTRemoved

Im gonna be rooting hard against the Warriors. Its too bad CP3 got hurt last year; Rockets deserved to go to the Finals (and probably win against the Cavs). Fuck KD. Go "Any other Western Conference Team outside of the Warriors"! I hope it is a rematch 13

Arguing someone who think Westbrook is better than Nash8:16 pm Thu Apr 22 EDTRemoved

If Westbrook played any semblance of defense, hed be better than Nash. But he doesnt, and so isnt. Edit: Nash was a turnstile on defense. My point is, if WB was a better defender, I could see him as a better player. But he isnt. So I dont. 1

Arguing someone who think Westbrook is better than Nash8:16 pm Thu Apr 22 EDTRemoved

....... I think you missed my point lol. Yes, Nash was a horrendous defender. But if Russ was a decent defender, he could make a good case as a better overall player. But hes almost as bad as Nash was. So WB isnt better than Nash. 6

Arguing someone who think Westbrook is better than Nash8:16 pm Thu Apr 22 EDTRemoved

Oh hes got all the tools for sure: speed, athleticism, strength, size. He just lacks the most important ones for defense: brains and work ethic. 1

At what point does Presti deserve blame for failing to put shooters around Westbrook 9:05 pm Thu Apr 22 EDTRemoved

Putting shooters around WB isnt the problem. The problem is that WB doesnt pass to those shooters when he should. Hed rather chuck up pull up threes and dribble into bad fade away jump shots. Dude was bricking pull up 3s when KD and Ibaka were on the floo -5

Lonzo ball or Jaylen brown 1:08 am Sat Apr 24 EDTRemoved

Who s better between Jimmy Butler and CJ McCollum 1:23 pm Sat Apr 24 EDTRemoved

Please fire billy Donovan12:06 am Mon Apr 26 EDTRemoved

Top 10 Current NBA Players11:14 pm Mon Apr 26 EDTRemoved

Until he learns how to play defense, hes not better than those guys. He can keep having MVP seasons due to his scoring, but hes a turnstile on defense. 1

Is Kevin Durant weak if he signs the max to stay with Golden State 11:02 pm Wed Apr 28 EDTRemoved

The general consensus is that Toronto will beat Philly What are the ways Philly can counter some of their deficiencies vs Toronto 1:39 pm Fri Apr 30 EDTRemoved

Trade ideas for Horford Gobert5:41 pm Mon Sep 6 EDTRemoved

Thats a really awful lineup. No spacing, no ballhandling (Lonzo is not a good ballhandler), subpar shooting, above average defense, and ~~3~~ 2 guys that operate best in the paint (~~Lonzo,~~ Zion and Horford). Thats a perennial 11th seed. 4
