Nostradamus:NBA betting is an extreme sport. It's an 82 game season so even favorites are going to take the day off so you gotta be smart about it

This Nwaba na Beast!
|Re: The NBA Begins by KNIGHTBlaed(m): 3:07am On Nov 14, 2018|
Cavs played good D, now playing like a team, Lue + Bron really messed this team up, good thing they are now playing as a team. Kemba Walker with just 7 points (rare I must say). Well deserved win for the Cavs
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 3:39am On Nov 14, 2018|
lool. i found out . where have you been
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 3:55am On Nov 14, 2018|
when you talk to the technical folks about heart, spirit and intangibles they laugh you off and point you to numbers. nevermind the formulas they use make assumptions.
we are witnessing the gm from mit, mr technical, Morey fumbling around. His formula didnt predict this.
How does letting Ariza, a role player walk make a better team on paper look worse. How does a low risk move in Carmelo risk the season. How does cp3 lose value after paying him what the formula says he is worth?
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:26am On Nov 14, 2018|
You are absolutely right with this post. Sadly this era of analytics has eroded the human element of most sports and that includes basketball.
|Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 4:46am On Nov 14, 2018|
I like how hawks are playing right now. Stop being scared of d warriors

HouseOfWine:Charlotte lost by 24

birdman:Over-reliance on analytics has always been Morey's bane but the one time the analytics should have helped him and told him Melo might not necessarily be a great fit he didn't take heed to it.
I think Melo has been made the scapegoat in this particular case though. Guys like Gordon, Paul and Harden were struggling and somehow it was Melo's fault
|Re: The NBA Begins by HouseOfWine: 6:33am On Nov 14, 2018|
Can U imagine (Cha @ Cle) ?
Rockets Won, and i did call it, we been having a good defense this past 3-4 games keeping opp def below 100 but nobody really notices cos our off has been up and down. On to the next vs GSW
I still dont expect the birds to win. KD is on point and Jerebko is acting huge in the paint !
|Re: The NBA Begins by HouseOfWine: 6:52am On Nov 14, 2018|
Unfortunately like Roland17 & A40 said Analytics is taking over in this current age and nobody wants to feel like a 90's team by not indulging in it.
However Hou is the godfather of Analytics, we basically started this sh!t and took it to a whole new level so we were due some -ve discrepancies once in a while
Melo isn't the scapegoat, yes hou were poor offensively but that doesn't mean our def should collapse too, Melo is just too bad defensively and for a team having hopes of a conference final, he would be a liability down the run, i mean jeez didnt U guys watch how the bulls were switching ferociously just to be 1on1 with Melo and they were all scoring on him an even when he fouled em it was either and1 or they made their foul shot, his defense is a no-no, if he was dropping 25 a game it did make sense to offset his weakness but noooo all Melo wants is iso this iso that, limiting our long range... Infact both parties got it wrong
I feel Melo would be better off on a team whose motto is "Playoffs is the Objective but not everything " ala Lottery teams cos then at least we can envision him playing more minutes.
GSW won! trust Kd to come huge down the 4th quarter.

|Re: The NBA Begins by Nostradamus: 8:07am On Nov 14, 2018|
The warriors beat hawks without draymond,heard he was suspended for a case with kd.that team too balance,it's set up in a way that if a star is missing,the team won't feel it at all.i just imagine the warriors signing another all star again(maybe giannis or embiid or davies).
|Re: The NBA Begins by Bobbieydeey: 8:54am On Nov 14, 2018|
This was me till I watched the recap, Clippers came ready and lou Williams was unstoppable

[quote author=Bobbieydeey post=72954625][/quote]thanks king.waiting for other contributors,but that cavs vs wizards,in their last game,the cavs seem to have gotten their grove back.
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 3:28pm On Nov 14, 2018|
Nostradamus:Philly (Orlando can be unpredictable though)

The beef between KD and Green is real. I just hope they can put their beef aside and win for the city of Oakland in their final season there.
|Re: The NBA Begins by HouseOfWine: 2:09am On Nov 15, 2018|
I believe most of Us already knew after his 2nd NBA ring or even before then, that KD wasn't going to stay past his initial contract years ( would like to see him join OKC back tho) .
Beef or not, it doesn't look like an issue that would would diminish their chance of least making WCF considering their team roster, mentality and organisation(unless something drastic happens) cos Draymond emotional outburst arent uncommon ( he did however question KD's commitment back in the locker room as reported) and mostly everyone views it as normal Dray Green personal.
Still can U fathom a same situation with Green doing this to Curry?...
Exactly! Which reiterates back to my 1st paragraph.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Eruditor: 2:30am On Nov 15, 2018|
This media narrative about KD leaving. LOL.
People talk like every team can afford him or can win with him.
The only thing that man cares about at this point is money. Nothing else.
Nothing about the whole "we knew he was moving" narrative makes sense. Two highly tensed people were involved in a scuffle and Draymond tried to get at KDs insecurities because Draymond is a nut-kicker. That is his persona.
KD is not moving anywhere. People can quote me after the season.
