Khanben:I beg to disagree a line up of Lebron,lillard,kuzma,hart and javale will give golden state fits.
Lillard will flourish around Lebron just like kyrie. Hart is a good shooter and defender, kuzma is evolving into an all-star. That line up features at least 4 players who can generate their offense. And you can plug in kcp, Lance, rondo or Chandler from the bench for some defensive steel or veteran mins. The second best team in the west is okc and you can't argue that Westbrook+pg > Lebron+ lillard

ipledge10:Lmaooo Shannon is funny sha. He will definitely do or say something that would make you laugh.

etidy:Word on the street is Bron's injury is worse than initially feared
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 11:43pm On Jan 11|
Khanben:He is IMO the best center in the league atm. He could score 25-30 every night if he wanted
A side note about this Nuggets team, it would be interesting to see if it translates to the playoffs but their depth is ridiculous! Hernangomez, Trey Lyles, Plumlee, Beasley and the ultra-efficient Monte Morris. Everybody seems to know their role and rarely stray out of the offense. This team has mad potential

Luka goddamn Doncic

I've noticed Klay Thompson always destroys all these lottery teams. He could easily have gotten 50 tonight

Simply amazing, using the words of Skip bayless, the dude has the 'clutch gene'. He was 1-7 in the game from 3 when he hit that go ahead three with was it 30+ seconds left. As Chauncey billups keeps saying 'this kid is special'
|Re: The NBA Begins by Khanben: 8:48am On Jan 12|
I really have a problem with the two 2nd overall picks in the Lakers. Ingram and Ball are nothing more than glorified role players, for god sake the Jazz has three of their back court players out and still a L
|Re: The NBA Begins by Khanben: 8:51am On Jan 12|
Apart from Lebron and Lillard there is too much inconsistency from that line up.
As for the OKC team... Man they play elite defense PG is always willing every night to take up the toughest defensive duty and Russ has seriously improved in his decision making
|Re: The NBA Begins by Decale: 9:45am On Jan 12|
Does anybody feel like some bench players should be starting?
The first and 3rd quarters have been the most vital. Coaches sending in a good player to keep the game close shouldn't be traditional. Why not start things with a tempo using those players and then figure it out from there?
Or is it just me?
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 7:23pm On Jan 12|
Khanben:Lmaooooo Lonzo Ball is a poor man's Ricky Rubio. Bykebyke has realized what we were suspecting.
The issue with Ball is you never know what you're going to get from him on any given night, and for a number 2 draft pick that is simply unacceptable. Right now is he the second, third or even fourth best player on the Lakers? You really can't tell and there lies the problem.
When a perimeter player is shooting 43% from the field and 41% from free throw line you're essentially fighting with one arm tied behind your back

KAT is having a tremendous resurgence lately, he has been playing like a franchise corner piece.
But I'm wondering if KAT will make the all-star game this year
|Re: The NBA Begins by ipledge10(m): 4:12am On Jan 14|
Khanben:I’m not sure, but he is surely deserves to be in the all-stars game.

Eagles were up 14-0 in the first 5 minutes of had game, end up losing 14-20

Nikola Jokic for MVP
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 1:12pm On Jan 14|
ipledge10:That Saints D was not here to play. A lot of people talk about their offense but IMO they have the best defense out of all the teams left. Not forgetting the best wide receiver in Michael Thomas
Tom Brady again showed why he is the GOAT
|Re: The NBA Begins by Decale: 9:18pm On Jan 14|
Capelo out for a decade
There's really no end to these Rockets injuries...
|Re: The NBA Begins by ipledge10(m): 10:29pm On Jan 14|
A40:The defense carried the game... it was hard for foles to make complete passes.
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 2:16am On Jan 15|
ipledge10:The absence of a running back really hurt the Eagles. At 14-0 Foles was still trying to make the big play instead of just trying to control the ball. If you keep challenging the Saints secondary at some point they will make a play that will turn the game on its head
That drop by Jeffrey was the backbreaker. I really thought Foles was going to win it at the end
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 2:19am On Jan 15|
Decale:The Mavs, Pelicans and Grizzlies
|Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 3:25am On Jan 15|
The Lakers had two quality picks in d'angelo and randle but nah! Lets trade them away and keep the two lottery busts. What was magic thinking when he traded Russell and selected lonzo even when I was clear his jumper was broken. Trying to reinvent the wheel in a league where a guard must have a respectabe shooting to be of value.
|Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 3:33am On Jan 15|
Meanwhile, I have been waiting for this year to make my judgement on the brad Stevens > Steve Kerr debate when he has won zilch. Brad is good no doubt but I have just being enduring the excessive dickriding. You have to be more than a good tactician for a team of good players to transcend into a great championship winning squad. Handling talented players who are conscious of their worth requires skill abt human management, its another beast compared to handling a team of underdogs. This is an area where Kerr thrives. People just think titles where handed to him because he has good players! But nah! The dude has been and is still a winner, he simply knows what it takes to win EVEN THOUGH HE SOMETIMES MAKES GOFFY DECISIONS ON THE COURT, HE
Khanben:DESERVES TO BE RESPECTED. HE HAS EARNED IT.
Exactly, those teams often have big ego problems. Just look at the Celtics, they have won nothing. yet, some players already have entitlement mentality.

A40:When the game was 14-0, I told my friend I’m picking Saints in that game. I so much believe in their offense, but the defense actually did the job for them yesterday. But what I couldn’t understand was how Eagles couldn’t double up on Thomas.
