Title: Official NBA Thread
Post by: Stevesie60 on June 25, 2014, 03:22:47 PM
I was trying to find a thread for all NBA things, but all the NBA threads are pretty specific. Now we have one!

Anyways, I was laughing at The Heat trying to lure Lebron back by getting a better PG. Sad to see Chalmers' career come to this.

Post by: Stevesie60 on June 25, 2014, 03:23:31 PM
Also, Dante Exum should be the first pick. He's definitely the safest, though his ceiling probably isn't as high as Wiggins, Parker or a healthy (lol) Embiid.

Looked up some numbers on Vonleh because I didn't know why he was projected to go so highly but he is a confirmed stud. Over 40% from 3!!

Bilas will tell anyone "I love you" if it suits his personal purpose. Especially if money is involved. Isn't there a name for that?

Same type of injury as Kevin Ware... He was back in ~6 months. Science and modern medicine is an amazing thing. ERiI you should look into the wonders of science...I think you'll find it fascinating.

Indy may decide to sit him the entire year since he's a huge investment for the future. I also saw somewhere (I think that d-bag Rovell tweeted it) that Indy gets $6.5M in insurance if PG misses the entire year...

I think what makes this year so great is that there are so many teams that have a legit chance to win it all... Would it surprise you if GS, CLE, MEM, HOU, ATL, or SA were champs? Usually by this point in the season there are only 3 or 4 contenders. This year there are at least 6.

there was better balance East v West but yeah, it is remarkable.

The draft lottery is designed to discourage tanking. The team with the worst record has only won 3 times (90 Nets, 03 Cavs, 04 Magic). IMO it does more harm than good because it alienates your fanbase.

Warriors fans were cheering for tanking in 2012, because they got an extra draft pick if they finished with the 7th worst record or worse:

Title: Re: Official NBA Thread
Post by: TownieCat on April 01, 2015, 12:16:50 PM
Trade protections have to do with draft order and not how teams finish in the standings. Fortunately for GS no one behind them in the standings jumped into the top 3 during the lottery.

Protections are necessary when dealing future picks. If a GM doesn't include one it's a fireable move.

The team that is really sweating things out this year is the Lakers. They are currently the 4th worst team and have a top 5 protected pick. If a couple of ping pong balls bounce the wrong way and they land in the 6th spot their pick goes to Philly. A big LOL at the Steve Nash trade if that happens...

Not gonna need the number 1 pick to get foster though. That's why this really doesn't make sense.

Steph Curry broke his own NBA record last night with his 276th 3FG of the season. He has 3 of the top 5 3FGM seasons.

But before all of the Dubs fans get too excited, I'd be hoping that San Antonio stays in the 6 seed in the West. It would be pretty embarrassing to win 67 or 68 games and not even make it to the WCF. If the Spurs stay at 6 they'll at least have to go through Houston and Memphis before getting to Golden State.

And sorry, Winters, but the Heat suck. Getting outscored 57-27 in the 2nd half last night is one of the lamest things I've seen this season. Woof.  :'bye cruel world:

The Dubs got a little lucky last night. Not only are they avoiding the Spurs until the WCF, but now they get the Pels instead of OKC in the first round. The Thunder probably wouldn't have won the series, but Westbrook would've made it much more difficult.

The NBA is my fave pro sports league, but their rules on fouls away from the ball are asinine. It blows my mind that teams like the Spurs are rewarded for fouls 80 feet from the basket but the W's almost had a catastrophe because of aggressive D on AD. The league needs to allow the officials to use common sense in those situations.

There is a great chance that all four 2nd round series go 6 games, and at least a couple will go 7.

I'm not rooting against GS, but if they lose it makes the rest of the playoffs that much more interesting. They've been the best team all season but the other 7 teams playing are all relatively even. I could see all of them making the Finals.

They are much better than what they showed tonight tho. Other than Mozgov the supporting cast played below their abilities.

It will be interesting to see if Blatt continues to run so many isos with James. Game 2 is always about adjustments and I don't think they can win playing like that. If Dellavedova has to play big minutes then they'll need to change too.
Title: Re: Official NBA Thread
Post by: Stevesie60 on June 05, 2015, 12:24:11 AM
Yes, the rest of the Cavs did not play well. But that was the best (statistically) that Lebron has ever played in a Finals Game. I doubt he continues at that level. And Curry and Thompson played a bit below their level too.

All that when really my biggest take away from game 1 is this: If Lebron makes that last shot OR the put back goes in, everyone is freaking out and saying since Cleveland stole on in GS they are now the favorites (especially since that means Irving never gets hurt). Instead GS pulls away in OT, and now everyone is saying GS could possibly sweep. This is a 6+ game series. And it will be a fun one.

Lebron was 18/38, 25% from 3 and 60% from the line. So, unless points scored is literally the only statistic that matters, I don't see how you can make that assertion.

Just because you are 6'8 and built like Hercules doesn't mean you can't get fouled. The non-call where Iggy hacked him across both arms while shooting was complete bullcrap.

Meanwhile if you breathe on Steph while he's thinking about shooting it's 2 (or sometimes 3) FTs every time.

Agreed. Don't know why you're using Delly's offense as reason to believe that he's bad at defense, but you do you.

I didn't call him bad on defense. I was just pointing out that he was very lackluster on one side of the court and still much better than his counterpart.

lebron clearly changed his pivot foot and traveled (not a  :cyclist: travel but an IRL travel) right before getting hacked. so the ref that was standing right there missed 2 obvious calls, but the result of the play was what would have happened anyway so wgaf?

the jump ball was more subtle but still should have been called

Steph was the best player on the best team, so the MVP award was warranted.

But Curry has his worst shooting performance since 2010, and the game was won by 2 in OT. If Lebron had that night, it's a double digit blowout.
Title: Re: Official NBA Thread

Would you rather have LeBron for 69 games or Steph for 80? Because IMO that's why LeBron didn't win the MVP this year. Everyone wrote him off when he took a 2 week break to heal some nagging injuries in early January.

I hate the "best player on the best team" criteria people use for the MVP. Take Steph off the Warriors and they still win 55+ games. Take LeBron off the Cavs and they may not win 20.

The Lebron hate is cause he had an unprecedented amount of hype in high school and entered the league and named himself The King.  People immediately were rooting for him to fail without ever seeing him play.  It's the sports media hype, people get annoyed with it and root for those people to fail (ie Tom Brady, Yankees, etc.)

The hype machine was 1/1000th of what it is now in the days of Shaq, Will, Jordan, etc.

Like, Wilt Chamberlain had a season where his fg% was 73%, but nobody would ever say he's a good shooter, let alone the GOAT because he's a center and hardly anyone ever saw him shoot. If I had to guess, Curry's coach has a better shooting percentage than he does. GOAT?

Curry's three point percentage is crazy good but what makes it even crazier is how high his usage is. Look at this list:

Reggie Miller is the only other real star on the list and even his usage was quite a bit lower than Curry's.

Quote
Four years after his father's murder, Steve Kerr played a game at Arizona State in which he was greeted with mocking chants by 10 to 15 fans of "P.L.O." and "where's your dad?" during the pregame warm-up.[10][11] Though teary-eyed, Kerr scored 20 points in the first half, making all six of his 3-point attempts.[11]

Wilt Chamberlain is the best shooter of all time and his usage is absurd.

100 rough ridin' points
Shot 73% from the field in one season 68% in another.
And every night he consumed copious amounts of drugs and alcohol, and slept with a dozen women. If he had worked out like Curry and had the 3 pointer he would have shot 130% from the field and averaged 70 ppg.

Unless and until the nba makes a rule prohibiting players from hovering around the 3pt line for more than three seconds, it's not even debatable that Wilt the Stilt is the GOAT. 73% FG%, 100 points, 30,000 women, are you rough ridin' serious?!?!?!?

Can you imagine the headlines if Cleveland were playing Oakland in the world series (yes, I know they're both in the al)?

"Small Market Series likely the end of baseball"

"Nobody watches baseball anymore per anticipated world series ratings"


Meanwhile, we have this fuckfest. I can't tell you how boring it's been watching 5 players from golden state try and tackle lebron as he dribbles towards the baseline. When did the nba become the suck fest that is cbb???  The nba rough ridin' sucks, and I'm not sure it isn't staged by the same people that put on the WWF.

Reading about that team is hilarious. The 76ers won the east that year with only 56 wins. The rough ridin' Milwaukee Bucks finished 2nd in the east in 2001. The second best player for the Sixers in 01 was Aaron McKie and they didn't have injuries.

People talk about how bad the east is now but from the time MJ retired in 1998 to the Pistons title in 2004. The east won 5 finals games in 5 seasons  :Yuck:

Dike was good but in 2001 he didn't have his best season,  wasn't terrible by any means but he wasn't at his best. Shaq had his best finals series in 01. Speaking to how bad the sixers were that year and the fact that they had no depth, Dikembe played 43 minutes a game over 23 games in the playoffs far and away the most he played. I don't really remember too many details about that series but it wouldn't be shocking that Mutombo's fatigue contributed to the huge series Shaq had.

That AI step over of Lue was :love: honestly I didn't like AI until that very moment

Tonight at GS... Okc Outscored GS 39-21 in the last 15:30 of game. Held GS to 8-28 FG, 5 TOs

And Okc is +58 on the boards the last 6 games

3 straight road wins over teams that went 79-3 at home in Reg season

KD still hit some amazing shots.

He was 10-31 FG.  He is shooting 42% on FG 27% on 3pt and 3.8 TOs in playoffs this year. 
Carrer stat are 48%, 38%, and 3.2 TOs

Go watch the replay. 99-96 Okc up. Durant is double teamed, if he hits wide open Ibaka it's a layup or 2 FTs.  Instead, pass behind him and a KD turnover.  Then KD gets back and doesn't play Defense. He should have picked up Curry in transition , who was closest GS guy to him.  He doesn't, Curry gets uncontested 3pt and KD barely moves to try and challenge shot. 

Only way Okc wins game 7 is if Westbrook does his magic in late 3rd and late 4th qtr (like he did game 5 at SA and game 1 at GS). 
Title: Re: Official NBA Thread

Durant could absolutely go off in game 7. There are two players on each team that could.

Westbrook could also go off in the first half or for an entire game. There's lots of possibilities, really.
Title: Re: Official NBA Thread
Post by: Powercat Posse on May 29, 2016, 11:30:32 AM
Late in game, GS had made 19 3s and Okc was like 3-22 from 3pt, and yet Okc was up 99-96.

Both Okc superstars had a TO after that point and both led to transistion 3 pt makes. 

Okc just could not distant that 5-7 point lead, then once the game was tied, they totally panicked and were a train wreck the final 3 minutes

Post by: GregKSU1027 on May 30, 2016, 04:18:29 PM
I feel like  I have said this on goEMAW before but this season is the Thunder's make or break season.
Kevin Durant's Contract for OKC will end after this season, his contract being $20,158,622 to be exact is crazy. A lot of people think that he will chase the rings if OKC doesn't win it all this year, I am one of those people. This team means a lot to me and I would hate to see KD leave OKC behind and pull a lebron. He has mentioned that he would like to have his number retired in OKC so if that means anything to the GM at OKC they would do as much as they could to keep one of the founding stars on board.

OKC would have rings if James Harden wouldn't have been traded. The trade occurred in the fall of 2012 right after a preaseason game against the Dallas Mavericks. I was in attendance and it was when I first realized how much I loved the NBA and especially the OKC Thunder. As soon as I returned home that night I turned on SportsCenter to see if my family would have been on TV that night. To my surprise, James Harden had been traded. He was traded along with four other players for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb and a 1st round pick from both the Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors. The seasons before the trade with Harden were disappointing needless to say, 09-10 was a loss in the first round in the playoffs, 10-11 a loss in the western conference finals, 11-12 was a loss in the finals to the seemingly unstoppable Miami Heat. The year of the trade, the thunder lost in the western conference semis to you guessed it, the Houston Rockets. Since OKC traded Harden, KD has been MVP and they lost in the western conference finals to the spurs. Last year Westbrook lead the team single-handedly and won the scoring title with the absence of KD.

This year the Thunder have been poised as an underdog against the thought to be juggernauts of the west, Golden State and San Antonio. They routed the Mavericks in the opening round of the 2016 Playoffs 4 to 1, then moved on to the next juggernaut the Spurs who everyone thought it would be game over for the OKC squad and Kevin Durant would be moving out for good. But the OKC Squad returned to Prime-time form to beat the Spurs in a series of 6, 4 to 2. And here we are where the team and the fans have been wanting to be for a long time. Game 7 against one of the greatest teams to be assembled.

IF OKC wins they keep their leader and star Kevin Durant and the team keeps building around him and RUSS
IF OKC loses they lose KD and the team crumbles around him.
A lot is at stake for the forward momentum of this team as well as the town of Oklahoma City, and the game of Basketball

I agree that the Cavs and Thunder are also better than the Bulls. I don't agree that the game is too different to compare. The game has continued to evolve; players are more refined, coaches and scouts have more tools and information than they ever have. Scottie Pippin was named one of the 50 best players of all time and he is the same guy who is the third best player on this Golden State team.

If I said the Warriors are better than the 33 straight win Lakers or 60s Celtics no one would flinch because of course they're better; we didn't see those teams so we don't have to parse our rationalize why this team is better.

Wasn't the bulls the same way? Rodman was no fan favorite, but ppl sure did love the crap out of them. They were great for the NBA.

Well of course they aren't identical, I can see, but they both involve attempting to drag someone down by pulling on the arm and having it look incidental, no? Good grief?

yes, good grief. Reggie Miller and Chris Weber both thought the Green play should have been a no-call and said it happens all the time. Adams had his elbow in Green's ear and Green was falling. Olynyk just flat out reached for and grabbed an arm with two hands.

Rusty, comeonman!

Also I hate Reggie and C-Web as analysts. It's shocking how much worse they are than Van Gundy and Jackson.

Yes. Every time Reggie Miller calls the NBA "The Association" I want to kick him in the nuts Draymond Green style.

LeBron James 11 times out of 10.

1. James
2. Durant
3. Kawhi
4. Westbrook
5. Curry

Curry is an incredible shooter (GOAT?), but he also gets to play with a couple all stars and the Finals MVP. Must be nice...

Yeah Cleveland has been playing very well and will be rested. Plus they are actually capable of making 3 pointers  (lots of them) to keep up with GS.

I hope Cleveland puts up a better fight at home.  So far they don't look like they belong on the same court.

Yeah, that's almost as bad as the K-Staters who think they could get Patterson to come home.

Free agency next summer is going to be incredible though. If Durant does the 1 year opt out you can add him to this list:

I would assume more players will be added to the 2017 with 1 year options.  You mentioned Durant, who almost certainly will.  Howard may but may also be shaky enough to take a max from a team he likes.  Wouldn't be surprised to see Wade, Horford, and DeRozan try for 1 year opt-outs too.

He is a + defender but not an elite one.  Being able to guard anybody on the other team is something that is elite though.  Lebron can probably do it but that's really it for the NBA.

Lebron James puts Draymond Green between his legs by unnecessarily walking over him.  I think Draymond was trying to get Lebron off so he could get up but not anywhere near an intentional nut shot.  He could have easily connected from there.  Even the push that missed wouldn't have been more than a shove that happens on almost every possession.

Lebron James puts Draymond Green between his legs by unnecessarily walking over him.  I think Draymond was trying to get Lebron off so he could get up but not anywhere near an intentional nut shot.  He could have easily connected from there.  Even the push that missed wouldn't have been more than a shove that happens on almost every possession. 



I don't think you're seeing the shot in question. I didn't see it the first couple of times I watched it either. It's right here when James is clearly past:

Might not have been an intentional nut shot, but was clearly unnecessary contact.

It was an intentional nut shot motivated by Lebron disrespecting him with the famous move AI did to who is now Lebron's coach.

I saw it upon rewatching after your first post.  I just think it warrants a flagrant much less than the OKC no-call.

My biggest issue overall is that Draymond was allowed to play vs OKC when the contact was more egregious, imo, and him playing would help the NBA create a better series.  Against the Cavs and up 3-1, he is penalized when it could hurt GS and create a better series.  I don't think he is suspended if the series is 2-2 and I think the NBA is keeping a finger on the scales to their benefit.

The OKC "no-call" was changed to a flagrant 2 (unless there's another I'm missing). He's only suspended because he's had so many flagrant points. If he'd done another nut shot during the OKC series he would have been suspended then.

The GSW play was arguably basketball.  Kicking your leg to draw a foul call has been around for a long time.  The Cleveland play was a punch.

and it still was regarded by the league as a lesser foul than the Steven Adams play.

Rather than a punch, I'd probably describe it as a backhanded nut-flick.

Sure, what it wasn't was an arguable inadvertent follow-through to a shot or steal attempt or something.  Lebron baited him and Draymond took it.  I think it all got handled appropriately.

They've never changed a game time for the playoffs as far as I can tell and there's a good chance they'll have a decent turnout because of people wanting to be close to the warriors.

Plus attendance at A's + attendance at warriors will still be less than a Raider game.

I know, but that's the biggest thing for me. The NBA overall is a pretty awful product in the regular season with 50% getting into the playoffs and about 30% of teams pretty openly tanking.  There are basically 16 playoff spots for 22ish teams trying to get them.  If you try and have an all-star, you should be able to get in.  Fixing the lottery should also be a priority.

To shorten: First round is back to best of 5.  Games every other day with an extra day for travel.  The finals took almost 3 weeks and that is stupid.

Such a Knick move but at least they didn't give up any picks and actually got one back. 

I will say his slashing ability complements shooters like Melo & Porzingas better than most of the Bulls rosters when Rose was there.  As much as I hate when people say this about cbb & cfb blue bloods I do think the NBA is better when the Knicks are good.

The Knicks have been terrible for most of the past 15 years and the NBA has done just fine.

Sabonis was a great pick up.  Assuming that Durant makes the best financial decision and returns, OKC will be trying to resign him and Westbrook next year.  Instead of worrying about resigning Ibaka and Adams as well, they have an Adams replacement in Sabonis along with another year of Oladipo on their rookie deals.

Oladipo is an upgrade over Waiters and has a much more affordable contract. Win-win.

I don't like it when people call Duncan the "best power forward of all time" because he definitely played the center position.

LeBron is still in his prime so comparing him to retired (or soon to be retired) players is dumb.

Miami?  Also, one of the reasons he didn't have help in Cleveland pt 1 is because Lebron tries to play GM too much.  Lebron the player is very good.  Lebron the GM is not.

All of that said, Duncan vs Lebron debate isn't settled yet.

Yes the 4 years he was in Miami he had help and look what happened. The time in Cleveland before, none. Which is why I put the 'overall' qualifier in there. 

Imagine what LeBron could have done with the role players that Duncan had his whole career

Thunder shook up the roster so he'd have to deal with uncertainty from staying or going. Just comes down to how you think he fits in with Steph and the gang vs Russell. Don't really have strong opinions either way right now, but I'm pretty excited for OKC vs Golden State games next season.

I lost a lot of respect for KD.  Winning a title is the ultimate goal and I get that.  But great superstars want that challenge.  The challenge of him winning a title in Okc was definitely achieveable.  I meen Okc could have been Nba favorite by Vegas odds or at least top 2.   So instead he joins a team that went 73-9, has a 2 time MVP and a super deep talent roster already.    We came up just short this year and I don't want the challenge to help an already talented Okc team go for a title in 2017. 

Wasn't there a lot of speculation that KD didn't want to play with Westbrook because he wanted to be the man on his team and not part of a 1-2 superstar punch.  I guess joining a team with the MVP, a 2nd team all nba (Draymond) and a 3rd team all nba (Klay) would suggest that being the Man wasn't that important I guess

I didn't lose any respect for Durant because I don't lose/gain respect for people I've never met based on idiotic things like where they choose to play basketball, but it does make the Warriors less likeable.  They won't be the villain the Heat were for those years with Lebron but they will def be less liked.

Durant definitely made the West less competitive next year which is only a win for GS fans and the "I only watch the playoffs, I want to see history " types.

One silver lining is I just heard Lebatard lay out the Wade to Cleveland via Denver or Milwaukee scenarios that would make a Cle v GS Finals maybe the greatest generational grudge match ever.

Summer 2017 NBA free agency >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Summer 2016 NBA free agency

The salary cap is going to jump another~$20M or so next summer. A majority of the players who have agreed to deals this summer are doing 2 year contracts with an opt out after the first year, so they will just do this all over again in 12 months. Add on top of that the other players whose deals expire after 16-17...

Yep, everyone lamenting that the 16-17 season is over seems to think that it'll be 15-16 but with GS getting 30 points added to their score for each game.  They basically swapped Durant for Barnes and Bogut.  They'll contrast with the Spurs even more now.  Getting Durant was about eliminating OKC more than anything else.

Popovich has about 10 months to figure out how to trump smallball with his frontcourt of Aldridge, Gasol and Leonard.  And the Cavs will probably come up with an even better way of guarding GSW than having Kevin Love lock down Steph Curry in crunch time.

You're probably right. Never bet against Pop.

Side note: Kawhi should fire his agent for letting him sign a 5 year deal last summer. He is going to be making about half of his market value by the time he can opt out.

Yes, but to be fair 53-29 should not be good enough for a 1 seed. Most years that is how many wins the 3 seed has.

IMO, it is more of an indictment of how Cleveland finished the season than it is of Boston's team. The Cavs absolutely choked away the 1 seed.

I absolutely HATE the replay rule for technical fouls, but Olynyk would have received one for his screen if this had been a college game. It will be interesting to see if the NBA suspends Oubre or not. He deserved to be ejected, but it was a shove to the chest and not a punch. That should be taken into account.

First time I have seen a guy "flop" and get up wanting to fight like that.

Olynyk is listed at 7'0 240 and Oubre tossed him like a rag doll. Everyone associated with the Celtics should be embarrassed.

Oubre wasn't at KU long enough and didn't really have much of an impact while he was there for me to dislike him. Until the playoffs started I had completely forgotten about him.

The CP3 to the Lakers was a proposed trade of Paul from the Hornets (a team owned by the NBA at the time) to the Lakers at an unbelievable bargain.  You can obviously argue that it was a mistake but it is in no way relevant or comparable to the Warriors signing Durant who was a free agent.

If that is the case then it would be foolish to waste the final year of LeBron by doing nothing. Make one more run at a 'ship before the window closes.

That said, I don't think LeBron is leaving. He will not do any better than Kyrie as a sidekick. Since beating Golden State is the bar, they need to unload one of either Love or Thompson because it's impossible to play both of them vs the Warriors. I would get rid of Love since he's on the books for $7M more than Thompson.

I may have been a 5 at this point but I was  trying to say you can possibly make an argument that there has been a better team in history but there hasn't been one that played the game more beautifully.

OKC traded for Paul George. He is very good. They also signed Patrick Patterson in free agency. He will be a good role player.

LAC traded Chris Paul to Houston. Atlanta traded Dwight Howard to Charlotte. Chicago traded Jimmy Butler to Minnesota. Paul Milsap signed with Denver. Gordon Hayward signed with Boston. Zach Randolph and 57 year old Vince Carter signed with Sacramento.

Michael Beasley is still a free agent.

I don't think CLE is sending the Nets pick to NO for Cousins when he will be a UFA next summer but Wade probably ends up in Cleveland by Valentines Day. 

I think there is no way Lebron is resigning with CLE and that was why Kyrie wanted out.  In a perfect CLE world they flip the Nets pick for a young up and comer that helps this years playoff run and is a building block going forward with IT and Love.  They need an athletic wing in the worst way, maybe it will be Fournier in Orlando after Wes makes him expendable

“I played a little too much, and that (expletive) really hurt me,” Durant, who first addressed the situation on a TechCrunch panel about athletes and branding, told USA TODAY Sports afterward. “To know that I affected Billy Donovan and the Thunder – like I love those people and I don’t never (want to hurt them).
“That was just me being a total (expletive) idiot. I own up to it. I want to move on from it. It probably hit me probably harder than what everybody (thought). Everybody else was telling me to relax, to snap out of it, but I was really, really upset with myself more than anything. It’s not the fact that people were talking about me, because I deserve that, but I’m just more upset with myself that I let myself go that far, you know what I was saying? It was a joke to me at first. I was doing it all summer, and it went too deep. I went too hard… I haven’t slept in two days, two nights. I haven’t ate. It’s crazy, because I feel so (expletive) pissed at myself and I’m mad that I brought someone into it.”
“I look at my life as like a big playground streetball game, because I play in the NBA and I try to – when I think about playing in the NBA, that’s how small I try to make it, so I can control it and so I can really feel the joy of playing basketball,” he explained. “It’s just another way of me talking trash. Like I said, I took it too far, and I regret talking about Billy and the Thunder. It’s just stupid of me. I feel so bad about this (expletive), because I don’t never want to affect anybody else with what I say.”
“No, (there’s) no different account,” he said. “I was just on there talking. It kind of looked that way – it did kind of look that way.”
“I was at home (in his Oakland Hills home),” Durant said. “I fell asleep watching football. I woke up, had charged my phone, and I just happened to look on Twitter. And I see (the person’s comment that sparked his response), and I just don’t remember it. I remember what I said and how I said it, but I just forget everything else. I forgot everything else. I was only focused on that convo, and that was unfortunate. I look like an idiot. My peers are going to look at me like an idiot. All the jokes – bring ‘em. I deserve it.
“The second I realized what I did, I felt like (expletive). Like I said, I look at that stuff as a joke and a big game. Sometimes when I’m in it, I take it too far and I’m in it too much, too deep. But it’s just out of sight, out of mind. I won’t fall into that problem again. I definitely have to move on and not worry about anybody on Twitter, even though it’s fun, you know what I mean?”
“I’m moreso disappointed in myself, that I was acting so childish,” he said. “What I thought was a joke is serious to everybody else, and I lost sight of that and I apologize for that. But I’m going to move on. I’m going to move on, and I’m going to play basketball. You can take what you want from it, do what you want with it, but it happened. I’m going to take it on the chin and move on.”

Agree.  I think he has a ridiculous ceiling if the right coach helps develop him.  He is the only one in the draft class that could turn out better than Doncic, IMO.

I don't see Detroit trading Griffin unless his contract is almost up.  They don't really have another way to acquire that talented of a player.  Even if they do manage to improve their team, they won't really be competing and won't sell enough tickets.

what should his public moral stand be in regards to HK and China that would satisfy folks? (even though most people mad at him also think he should shut up and dribble)

Did he say the people of Hong Kong were wrong? All I saw was he said that Morey (who quickly deleted his tweet) made a mistake?

Also I don't think people in HK are trying to no longer be a part of China, just have more autonomy. China participates in some mumped up crap to be sure but what they're doing with HK is pretty mild on the scale of evil.

They are fine being in China as long as they don't have to live under Chinese authority. They don't want China to be able to extradite Hong Kong citizens, and they would like to be able to voice their opinion without fear of arrest. They also want to be able to have votes that count. I guess that's not the same as "not wanting to be part of China" but it's basically the same.

You can believe Morey didn't fully consider the implications when he made that tweet but still agree with the content. No doubt LeBron was sloppy but I don't think it diminishes his calls for human rights domestically and it shouldn't prevent him from speaking out on certain issues in the future.

Bill Simmons has a pretty balanced take on it.

I don't think it diminishes other causes themselves he advocates for, but how could it not diminish his voice to the public as an advocate, just functionally as far as public reception?

Whether it should or shouldn't, I dunno, just seems like it will as a matter of inconsistency when considering what China does.

Why do separate HK and its citizens versus other effed crap that the Chinese government does? Do you expect HK's citizens to not take those other human rights abuses into consideration when they advocate for themselves?

My favorite storylines this season are:

1.How good will the Warriors be? I think they will be much better, especially come playoff time, than they’re being given credit for.

2. The LAL v LAC battle. The Lakers are going to be pretty decent I think, but good God, the Clippers are absolutely loaded. I don’t see how any team can really compete with them in a seven game series. Should Kawhi earn another title and maybe another Finals MVP, where do we start putting him in terms of all time greats? And how high can he rise. He’s just now fully into his prime. SCARY.

I'll still root against the Warriors until they prove on the court that they suck. I pretty much always root against the best team.

clippers might be the best. It's a shame they don't have Chris Paul because then they'd be a lot easier to hate. I suppose you can dislike PatBev but he's too untalented to really really hate.
Also PatBev is super loveable. Total JYC(lipper)

JYCs aren't dirty players

stunz I'd suggest just relishing the Warriors totally sucking all year. They might be hilariously bad this year

To be fair, my Suns might finally be not bad!

Nuggets at Pacers. It was close until the end when the Nuggets just dumped the ball down to Jokic over and over and he made every shot he took.

I've been to a few Bulls games.  Was very fun in 2014 the game before the playoffs.  Since then, they have been bad, and games weren't as fun.  Did get to see Westbrook and Oladipo playing for OKC a couple years ago.  Westbrook was great to see live.

Like, my impression from regular season NBA games on TV is that there would be very few fans and a pretty lackadaisical environment. Those Pacers fans were pretty great, though. They were super into it.

I know it was one game but I'm more pissed at everyone who thought that it was a success. They clearly would have been blowing it no matter what. Agendites.

The point of the Elam Ending is to shorten the amount of time the end of game situation is supposed to take. It took at least 20 minutes of real time for the two teams to essentially race to see who could score 2 baskets first. It absolutely didn't save time, and this was an all star game, I can't believe how long it would have taken if it were a meaningful regular season game or a playoff game.

Too many timeouts, too many and way too lengthy reviews, and really really really bad offensive basketball. The flow was garbage. It finally ending with Anthony Davis making the second of two free throws, after badly bricking the first, was just perfect.
Title: Re: Official NBA Thread
Post by: 8manpick on February 17, 2020, 07:36:07 AM
Some of that seems easy to fix. Limit timeouts after the target score is set, free throws take away the other teams points when you are within one.

Instant replay is bad. Didn't watch last night but if they can't figure it out in 30 seconds, the original call stands. Or don't have it at all

NBA officials will also let a soft foul go in exchange for letting a team keep possession.  Then a challenge happens and they have to change it to a turnover (although maybe not now that you can challenge fouls).  I remember this happening to Chris Paul late in a playoff game and it was ridiculous.

They, at least the officials last night, are also a lot more liable to kowtow to whining players in review situations. Late in the game the referees called what seemed to be a very obvious foul. LeBron threw the biggest tantrum in all star game history and after what seemed to be a two plus minute review, after a full timeout, they reversed it.

it was def exciting and competitive at the end, but the issues i saw was it put a lot of pressure on the officials on what they were willing and not willing to call in a next basket wins situation.  i also thought the game would end on an exciting 3 or something, and to see it end on a free throw was very anti-climatic and ironic.
