  1. Thats not nearly enough for me. With better coaching, you could have swept the cavs. Lebron was exhausted all series long and would just rest on the defensive end. The only player to move less distance per minute played on the defensive end than Lebron was James Harden, the poster child for taking it easy on the defensive side. If you ran a modern offense and made Lebron chase his player through a hurdle of screens, this would be an easy win. Instead you guys run an offense that only worked back when McMillan still played for the Sonics. Oladipo would dribble the air out of the ball at the top of the key. Let Lebron rest and take a contested shot as the shot clock runs out or kick it out if they doubled him. Its simplistic and way too easy to defend. I know its easy to % on Paul George after his performance, but the guy was exhausted. The Jazz punished him all game long and his legs were giving out. Impossible to shot accurately in that condition. It didnt matter if he was guarding Mitchell or Ingles. They never stopped moving. Boston used the same strategy with Middleton and Giannis. If the opposing team dares to play their best players 40+ minutes and you dont take advantage of that, to me thats a fireable offense. I dont expect Dwayne Casey to do any better. But, they might win on talent alone. The disparity in coaching between the two sides of the eastern conference brackets is astonishing. Spoelstra, Stevens and Brown on one side, with Brooks, Lue, Casey and McMillan on the other
  2. Coming over from the Philadelphia/Miami series and watching indy vs the Lebrons, I feel like I have traveled back a good decade and a half. Very little movement on offense and both teams just trapping the opposing teams best player all game long As bad as the refs have been in our series, this was somehow even uglier. Congratulations on the win, i guess
  3. I didn't realize paying Kmart Draymond Green more than actual Draymond Green makes would be considered a win.
  4. you didnt even mention Magic's biggest mistake. Refusing to pay their best player. Now, they're going to either give Randle a max contract or lose him. Which severely hurts their free agency this summer.
  5. The Warriors got better this off season. That bench is so deep, it could compete for a playoff spot. It's straight up not fair, how good they are. The NBA needs a hard cap with no limits on player contracts. If the * Bulls(feel free to replace with any other terribly managed team) want to offer 90 million a year to Steph Curry, they should be allowed to
  6. Who was calling Jason Kidd a bust his rookie year? Dallas improved heavily his rookie year, a 20+ win difference and Kidd got the bulk of the credit for that improvement. These Kidd comparisons need to end. The only thing the two have in common is being half black/white. The similarities end quickly after that. Lonzo is struggling in the half court offense as a ball handler, in half court offense off the ball. On defense he gets the Steph Curry treatment. The few times he does have to defend on the ball, guys are blowing past him off the dribble. No pick needed. This isnt Westbrook, where you expect it to happen. These are guys like Mario Chalmers, just eating him alive. Lets not forget the worst true shooting percentage of the 3 point era. He's really good at finding guys in transition and hes a good rebounder.
  7. Add the CP3 clippers to that list. I wonder what happens to CP3's legacy if the Clippers finally advance past the second round, the year after he left
  8. It couldn't have went off Covington. look at the ball's trajectory, it could only head in that direction bouncing off young's hand. I thought it went off convington too, during real time. But the replay showed that it wasn't possible. I think there were nonesense whistles for both teams. The refs have been horrible all year long. But your team got more calls in their favor, through out the game and still lost.
  9. how are you going to complain about refs when you got more calls than the Sixers. 20 fouls called against the sixers and only 18 on your pacers. There were bad calls on both teams, but the refs certainly didn't decide the game. Played way too sloppy in the first half and tightened up in second half. Redick and Bayless should never be on the floor at the same time. Besides that another step in the right direction.
  10. I still think that the cavs got the better end of that deal. The big difference is that Boston has arguably the third best coach in the league(behind Pop and Kerr). While the Cavs have the worst coach, now that Tank Commander Earl Watson is gone. He's coaching from the Mark Jackson playbook, give the ball to your star and stare with your mouth wide open, hoping something happens. Almost no set plays
  11. Congrats on the big win against the Cavs. Looking forward to our match-up against you guys on Friday night
  12. He should be filing a lawsuit against his girlfriend. He was almost a Raven, until she opened her mouth and the racism belched out.
  13. Prior to last night, I thought the Suns would just barely miss the playoffs with all that talent. I didnt account for just how terrible their coach is. It's almost not fair with Tank Commander Earl Watson leading the way. No way we get Lakers picks now, looks like the Celtics will have the Laker's picks. I had low expectations for the two New York teams and they still managed to under perform. Without Hayward, I think Wall and his Wizards are now the second best team in the East. A lot of people on this board are sleeping on the Spurs. Theyre still the second best in the West. Looking forward to seeing the Sixers play Boston tomorrow night and the Lebron vs Greek Freak match up this weekend
  14. https://twitter.com/vincethepolack/status/879357043303469057/photo/1 LeBron screwed himself Dan Gilbert has been cursing out Indiana to any reporter willing to listen, since Summer League
  15. The cavs have had chinks in their armor since LeBron came back to Cleveland. With the way the team was constructed, they only had a 2 to 4 year window to win a championship. They mismanaged their cap from the very start. The warriors are the best constructed team in the history of this league. Their cap management is flawless. The main core are all in their athletic peaks at the same time. The bench is deep. Theyre as good defensively as they are offensively. The only thing stopping the warriors are the luxury tax, Steve Kerr's health, unfortunate injuries to star players or down the line, age. https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2017-nba-predictions/ The warriors were as superior to the Cavs, as the Cavs were to the rest of the league While the warriors are bringing in grizzled vets to play 15 minutes a game at most. The Lakers were counting on their old farts for starter minutes. Combine that with the inner turmoil of Kobe trying to push Shaq out and you see that the team crumbled in on itself. The worst thing about the Warriors, their fanbase. The LeHeat fanbase skipped LeCavs and went straight to San Francisco. It's everything I hated about the bandwagon Miami Heat fans, combined with a natural smugness that oozes from bay area.
  16. Dont get me wrong, Dan Gilbert is a terrible owner. But, this is 99% LeBron's fault. Even If the cavs still had Griffin, there is nothing that Griffin can do to improve the team. They have no cap space to get big time free agents and they have no assets to trade, outside the big three. LeBron stood his ground and made sure his guys got paid. Tristan, JR, Shumpert, and Frye. Those contracts look as bad with the cap increase as they did before them. LeBron forced the team to trade any assets they had for the likes of Mozgov. Lebron got the good coach fired and had him replaced him with his buddy. Lebron gutted the team from the inside out and he's now doing his best to shift the blame of him. Kyrie requested to be traded back when Butler was still with the bulls. Why leak the information weeks later? And the guy who leaked it, Windhorst, is well known to be LeBron's guy. Just more shifting of the blame
  17. None. They'll go back to wasting first round picks on the likes of Anthony Bennett
  18. 1.Yes 2.Yes 3.B 4.I genuinely dont care. I guess keep it as is. NFL.com 5.No 6.Yes 7.Yes 8.No
  19. As long as youre here when the Lakers send a top 5 pick to Philadelphia or Boston at the end of this season Fifth straight year in the lottery. Just as long as those tanking Sixers have been there. I dont care about Lonzo, but seeing Lakers suck is just marvelous
  20. https://*/s1u03 How does one embed a streamable link on this forum? The video is Peyton poking fun at Durrant
  21. I imagine the pitch to get Carmelo on board was similar to this "Half the defense, double the offense"
  22. Chris Paul too. You have three ball dominant players that struggle off the ball. I cant imagine three stars that fit worse together
  23. I literally put zero emphasis on summer leagues. none at all. I mentioned it once this whole time and only in response to you bragging about lonzo getting 11 points on 13 shots. Way to build a strawman argument If you dont want to debate thats fine. But if you expect to keep making snarky comments filled to the brim with nonesense that you pulled out of your butt, youre going to get called out everytime.
