Can anybody tell me why Timberwolves always beat Thunder. It’s always close, but Timberwolves always find a way to win. This has been going on since last season.

i don’t see them knocking off clippers or spurs. Those are the two weakest team in the playoff spot right now, and they are both better than Timberwolves.

Russell Westbrook and his crunch time decisions. https://www.instagram.com/p/BsZj_YWH86C/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=lprh6eo3vo4k
Steven Adams need to be a man and stop acting like a bítch at every call Westbrook makes. Give the best scorer on the team the ball. Simple. As for Westbrook, I'm done with him. Dude cannot change.

Lakers no be only LeBron. They're missing one other starter and their best bench player. Even Cavs are depleted too. What were you expecting?'

Re: The NBA Begins by SmooshCHN: 8:29pm On Jan 09
I swear LeBron owns the NBA. He can get you suspended at will or even tamper without punishment. grin cheesy

Adam Silver won't do anything cos it's just an IG shout out for kids to see.

Nikola Jokic should be All NBA. If he was even 10% athletic he would be the best center in the league by an ungodly margin

I was backing Clemson to win as they are a very good team(their Defensive Line is the best in college football) however was not expecting them to win by that margin. They literally tore Bama a new one. They went absolutely bonkers. Trevor Lawerence for one so young has such a calm and "in control" aura. Keenly following His development.

I supported Clemson from the beginning because of My boy Watson, what I hated was how people making Lawrence look like second coming of Tom Brady. Suddenly Tua is trash. They quick to forget Tua did same thing last season with Bama.

It's a simple case of being Prisoners of the moment. Some are even calling Him the best QB in college football which is ridiculous. Sure He had a great game however so did the D-Line(the best in college football) and the O-Line(criminally underrated) too. I also think some of hype has to do with Him being marketable. He has the Wholesome All American Boyish GoodLooks. Let's see How well He develops over the next couple of years.

I’m happy someone with brain can see what is going. I was trying to let my !d!ot see from this angle, he was telling me how he spend like 10hrs on sport daily. The hype is because he is marketable. The only Qb I can compare him to right now in NFL is Mitchell Trubisky.

Kuzma was off the chain last night. Don't want to hear LeNomad has no help and the Lakers are a bum team like Shannon Sharpe likes to claim. Kuzma on his day is one of the best scorers in the league and I've been hyping him since last season

Spare a thought for Magic Johnson, I wonder how he must feel knowing he drafted Lonzo Ball ahead of DeAaron Fox and watching DeAngelo Russell lead a team of electricians to playoff contention

IMO Kuzma can be the third option on a championship side, all the Lakers need now is to find their second option either via trade or free agency and then get the right complement of role players.

Lmaooo I've seen all types of fanboys but I'm sure even LeBron's wife would be worried if Shannon met her husband.

His basketball IQ is off the charts. Everything just moves in slow motion for him, and to think he's just 23 which means he is nowhere near his prime. He is proof athleticism is criminally overrated

He is kind of slow to me, it always baffles me how they let him analyze on national tv.

Nicola jokic just keeps making his case for a starting place at the all-star game. That cross court pass was just WOW

Imagine if the Lakers kept d'angelo, randle and still have lonzo, kuzma,Ingram, hart and zubac plus loads of cap space. Yes they won't get lebron but they would easily be able to trade for Anthony Davis and sign whoever they want in free agency.
Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 3:23pm On Jan 11
Meanwhile, If the Lakers are having feelers that Durant and Kawhi is not joining. Then, the best move right now is lonzo+Ingram+picks for lillard. That is a killer move and is going to be great for both teams.

1 Portland get to rebuild, save tax dollars, get two youngsters who may be flawed but have a high ceiling and basketball IQ to build around+ picks.
2 Ingram gets to leave a team where he doesn't fit and will have less pressure on him
3 The Lakers get a starting 5 of Lillard, hart, Lebron, Kuzma and javale/zubac which is a perfect blend of shooting, passing and inside scoring. Hart can cover lillard defensive lapses and the laker will still have cap space to sign a wing defender or bench scorer. Plus that Lakers bench with rondo, lance,kcp, chandler is not is bad.
Imagine rondo+lillard backcourt in the playoffs smiley ... Magic had better wake up

Nice dream, but that would not have been possible, the pick that became Kuzma was gotten from the trade that took Russell to the Nets. As for randle the reason they let him go was because of cap space. Finally AD is not going there without another star being there already.

This setup has only one pure shooter if Rondo is starting, but Hart and Lillard along side Lebron is not bad, but it will not still cut it in terms of challenging GSW
