if Covid had hit earlier, a LOT more people wouldve died. Kobes death sucks, but either youre making an argument for one life being worth more than others here, or youre not fully aware what Covid is Edit: FYI I dont think you meant any malice with this 4

Brandon Clarke??? 4

Would you rather have Zion Williamson or Brandon Clarke1:50 am Fri Jul 31 EDTDeleted

Clarke turns 24 in September, best case scenario his career turns out something like Malcolm Brogdon, which is pretty brilliant Id say, but were talking about Zion here 2

Isn t it crazy that melo was out of the league for a year plus all because some dudes with calculators said he couldn t hoop anymore 2:32 am Thu Aug 6 EDTDeleted

I dont think Melo deserved to be out for a whole year, and I also think it was kinda unfair how he was scapegoated for Rockets early season struggles last season. However, I do think the criticism in terms of him being a net-negative player was fair. Most 1

If Ben Simmons and Lebron switched teams prior to the season how do you think it would have played out for the Lakers and 76ers 10:48 pm Sat Aug 15 EDTDeleted

76ers would obviously be title favourites over the Bucks lol. Lakers probably go down to fighting for the 7th/8th playoff spot. 3

Tatum gt Siakam10:35 am Thu Aug 20 EDTDeleted

Siakam is good but honestly he gets really overhyped sometimes for no reason. Like yeah his rise has been brilliant and a great feel good story but hes not in a same tier of top players people try to put him in just cuz Raptors are a good team 2

Load Management3:27 am Wed Sep 16 EDTDeleted

the Clippers will continue to do it regardless. Their 2 stars have an injury history so theyre not about to risk it cuz of public perception of load management 4

Are bad defenders simply bad due to lack of effort Or are there physical and mental tools that they simply don t- and can t- possess 11:55 pm Sun Sep 20 EDTDeleted

Yeah if you hear to coaches, they always talk about defense largely being about consistent effort. Like the nuances to defensive schemes will come with more experience but you have to have effort, especially as a young player. Its why someone like Dort i 1

If they redrafted the 2019 class today knowing what they know now where would Tyler Herro go 1:27 am Thu Sep 24 EDTDeleted

too early to say top-10, the young talent in the league is insane rn. Itll come down to who stays consistent with it 3
