YEEEEEESSSSS!!!!

The two most pressing needs for the lakers. A playmaker and a defensive wing. He more than fills the needs of the former. The fact that hes a good shooter is an added bonus.
the ring chaser doesn't deserve a chance. There are others who deserve and would respect the opportunity he took for granted. So what happened to his mission that made him retire? That doesn't matter all of a sudden?

Guess who Darren Collisons agent is?

LOL Why are you taking him retiring so seriously? he did what he thought was best for his mental and spiritual health. Now hes had a change of mind. And frankly i dont see many players as good as him available right now. No brainer.

i think you mean the fans they gathered in the last 5 years. Im not even sure their current fan base actually like bball. Nothing wrong with that, but it explains how folks who were worshipping Durant one season can be justifying him being dissed like this.
I don't just get.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 11:25pm On Jan 01
So, if the Lakers get Darren Collison, who's going? Bradley, Rondo? One gotta go. Caruso's definitely staying.

It was never genuine love, from some of the fans. Bro, if you and I who are outside the circle know it, what do you KD thinks or feels?

The Slimreaper was an obvious threat that blurred and took the attention away from some of their superstars.

It's funny how y'all slandered KD and the Warriors for 3yrs straight. The Warriors couldn't even breathe. They retired his jersey and already posted a thank you video but you guys said it was eye service. It was fake. Yes, it was wrong they left him out as every fan here agreed but now y'all suddenly acting like he was family member all along. It's not that deep but since it's the Warriors, the hate must fly.

You know how every they go. When we were here defending him night and day. At some point I remembered making a post telling them you cannot possibly love a player more than the supporters of the team he is representing. When some other Lilwayne relatives were saying Lebron is the best player in basketball. It was the KD haters like GSW fans that were saying it was KD. LOL.

Remember when GSW were also classless and vindictive for cutting Iggy because of the breakfast club interview?

Hustle oh make your team win 3 rings in 5 finals. So bad belleing and shedding crocodile tears will not be your job.

Doesn't mean i can't appreciate players making shots, not as if they haven't struggled against bottom feeders in the past.

Besides, the suns are only couple of wins away from a playoff position. They're not that suns anymore.

Eruditor:


GSW don't have the right to choose who they want in their video but KD has the right to be petty?

So if they ask SC the best SF he has ever played with in the NBA he should say Lebron since it is his choice?

Curry did not agree with KD. He took the high road. He did not want to appear petty. That is the difference.

The points KD made don't need to be egregious to you. They were not to me either. They were rubbish though and petty. That does not mean I agree with leaving him out of the video but that will be my explanation for why they did. There is a difference.

At the end of the day. If I put on rose-coloured glasses. Everything I see will be red. So KD can never be wrong to you and that is perfectly fine.
the double standard? Sheesh. Its just part envy and part awe grin over all we achieved.

So what would be the PG hierarchy?

Bradley
Collison
Rondo
Caruso

Collison
Bradley
Rondo
Caruso

There's way too many PGs there. I say get rid of Cook and Daniels and bring in forwards.

Or get rid of cook and Daniels and get a PG and a wing. You saw what Rondo did today. Leave him for the politics but play him as little as possible.

The first NBA All-Star ballots precisely how I expected them to. I had zero doubt in my mind that Doncic will be the lead vote getter at this point.

You know this.

If we win, the team is too star-studded.

From the same mouths. The GOAT should have AD, Kawhi, D Russell etc.

From the same mouths Curry is a choker. He is useless. Klay is a 3 and D player. But as soon as they win. Too star-studded.

I tire.

Nba ratings dropping while nfl's surging. Recently got into football and my passion for the nba is waning until thd playoffs that is.
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:39am On Jan 04
In the NBA there few offensive rebounders better than E. Kanter, he definitely ranks high on the offensive rebounding category but over the last few games the man has been doing it on both ends of the glass.
We made this game more difficult than it should have been with a 1st quarter to forget, infact, we were down by 18 at a point. I think we missed the coordination Kenna brings to our game and that made it difficult but credit to the guys for fighting. That last Hawks possession defense on Trae Young by D. Theis was cerebral.

Capela is chewing Embiid like barbecue chicken under the rim. They have no answer for him and to imagine he is playing with an injured heel.

Great Performance from Ben today admist all the trouble the Aussies are currently experiencing. Must not have been easy for the Young Lad but I'm sure His Mum and Australia are proud of Him. More of that please. And ohh I'm sure I have said it a Million times before but I'll say it again James "The Beard" Harden is a Phenomenal Basketball player.

Lastly I tip my hat off to Lamelo donating a Month's salary to Help Aussies affected by the Fire. Great Head on young shoulders that Boy has got on Him.
