Sadly both teams I supported lost their games. I know the saints would have stand a better chance against the Pat, but I won’t write Rams off completely. One thing that surely helped the Pats out is their experience.

Chiefs should have gone for a touchdown in that last drive.
Too little time left. There really wasn't much they could do there.

They started too slowly for a home team and Belichick is just a Babalawo, he knew that keeping the ball off Mahomes hands over the course of the game was their only shot at winning.

Wiggins is fast starting to look like a hopeless case. In any other field he would be out of a job with his listless performances every night. A guy his size and on that contract just can't be doing 4 rebounds and 2 assists on a nightly basis plus woefully inconsistent shooting


He is a perfect example of how to waste a max contract...still wonder how he got picked as 1st overall

So nobody is going to talk about Klay Thompson?


Somebody finished with an eFG of 110%. Yikes
Somebody scored 44 points on 20 shots. Double Yikes
Somebody shot 10/11 from 3. Ewoooo
All in 26 minutes!!! Chaiiiiiii

The way he inconsistently plays then smash an NBA record after is what I low-key hate about that motherfücker.

Which other 3 point record wey those 2 never break?


Take a bow...

Embiid would have probably gone number one if He did not injure himself. Also you really can't blame Minnesota's front office for picking Wiggins. They couldn't have forseen Andrew's total lack of commitment to improving himself as a player. We are talking about a Guy that had a ridiculously high Ceiling. One of the greatest two way players of all time calibre talent. Unfortunately His is a case of unfulfiled potential.

If only He had the work ethic or the drive of an Embiid or Adetokunbo.

He's still only 23 and I hate writing off young players but I don't know if the Wolves paid him too early and he just got comfortable. If this was the NFL where most of the money isn't guaranteed he would be facing a cut.

He's usually healthy and each time I remember guys like Brandon Roy who tried and tried to make comebacks but his body just didn't let him it makes Wiggins efforts even more disrespectful to his team

I'm not completely writing Him off. He just wouldn't develop into the Superstar athlete we thought He would. I have little hope He'll get much better than He currently is. The Lad seems to have plateued. He is neither progressing nor regressing. It's a sad sight. Nevermind Number one option, If Wiggins is your Number two option, you have little to no chance of winning a chip.

Ohh no no no. While I don't necessarily dispute that the refs had their chances to win the ballgame, that gaffe was an unforgivable PI that one could see from Space. I'm surprised Choppa City boys allowed those officiating crew escape alive. It was a crying disgrace

As a Steelers fan though I think it's just karma for the two BS PI calls on Joe Haden in Week 16 so ojoro cancel

OKC is a legit treat but they still need outside shooting and bench scoring. Against the blazers their bench had just 19 points.

I think it will if you don't put immediate pressure on the Young Lad. Also from what I have seen thus far, I don't see How this Dude won't be a sucess in the NBA. If not for any other reason but His off the charts work ethic alone. To go from being Unranked in High School to being a projected Top 3-5 pick in the NBA draft all in the space of two years is pretty insane.

All-star starters list is just whew, i want to complain about AD not making it in the west, but every other person there deserved it.
The next step for the league after elimination east and west from the game proper, is to just make the selections itself about, the best 24 players of the first half of the league irrespective of conference.

He's still so young it feels bad that anybody should be writing him off at this age. I think he has the ability, you see it some nights when he's engaged but these are too few and far between. I always use D'Angelo Russell as an example. A high draft pick traded just after two seasons. A lesser man would be demoralized but he grit his teeth and is dropping a career year, he's younger, smaller than Wiggins and playing for a far worse team yet he isn't using that as an excuse to not ball

That's the beauty of sports. Ojoro must always cancel. I wanted the Saints to win but when we got robbed I didn't see the media or anybody displaying that same energy.

They won the OT toss, they were home. They had a second chance to win the game and didn't so let them just free

KD is probably the only person I can take AD out for but then what are the odds of that happening

He is not trying. And doesn't seem to care. I think that lies his biggest problem. It's disappointing because you see players each year add a new tool to their game but he is actually regressing each year --stats back it up-- so you have to wonder if Minnesota aren't regretting prematurely paying him max

I decided to vacation in Nigeria and my brother, the environmental stressors in Nigeria, particularly in Lagos deducts life span worth more the reprehensible level of poverty and hunger, which is fueled by unemployment. People are suffering in Nigeria, I mean genuine suffer, with little or no hope for any respite.

Donbaba, happy new year. I left Nigeria with so much pain and hurt. Forget the nonsense most of these stuff people post online, Nigeria is in a big mess.

You said it all Baba, Home is just home and nothing more. I have no regrets visiting and I encourage everyone living in Diaspora irrespective of citizenship to visit home.
