Guy, watch that video again. He is a very good player, loyal and gives his all with intensity but...

If OKC wins this game it's game over in the series. Final seconds, game is tied and twice you have a chance to win or tie the game and twice Westbrook is given the responsibility and he bricks. Meanwhile you have a cold blooded assassin in your team, the second best player in the league in the person of KD in your midst.

To me that's hogwash.

OKC should have been KD's team and Westbrook his 2nd. It should have been made clear. Management got it wrong.

And by the way, did you hear when the commentator said "Durant has fouled out" ?

Which one is "real plus or minus". Folks always inventing metrics to help their course. grin. Is there a fake plus or minus? I am not surprised. Lebron Stat Market indeed.

The guys at OKC do not have a functioning brain on their head
Durant fouled out in the game, so there's your consolation.

Lol. No vex o. I didn't do the analytics.

Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 10:41am On Feb 13
Maybe you can have some hope now. Rob Parker is mostly wrong. Maybe he's wrong again. Just maybe. grin
steady986:
I legit hate Rob Parker. Once he opens his mouth to talk about the Lakers it's all hate and bullshit.
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 10:47am On Feb 13
Ofcourse you didn't invent it. Although it's another to make some "real losers" more valuable. grin

Naah. At least when LeBron wins MVP people won't say he didn't deserve it.
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 10:52am On Feb 13
Ofcourse, what do you want us to do? grin. We are in deep shit now, but there's a glimmer of hope.
steady986:

Warriors fans now looking to the past for solace. Lol grin
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 10:54am On Feb 13
Exactly, hence the invention. grin. But if you know, you know. grin
steady986:

Nash. At least when LeBron wins MVP people won't say he didn't deserve it.
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 11:02am On Feb 13
But honestly, it's unfair to condemn Westbrick like that. grin. KD attempted more shots. His resurgence with the GSW doesn't change the fact that he was bad overall during that series. He was bricking as well, but i can't help but acknowledge that we are grateful for his move. He made winning so much easier. grin
DeeMain:


Why Westbrook will be the 4th quarter final seconds go-to player for a team that has KD on it beats me. KD stomached a lot of shit in OKC. What disrespect! Nonsense.

Steph baba! Respect!

I didn't see the game, but I'm believing that that Mook-PG-Kawhi partnership is bullocks unless Mook comes of the bench. I mean, bringing Morris into the starting lineup pushes PG into the SG position, making him to take (and miss) even more three pointers. They need to sort themselves out...the later the better for us.

You didn't miss much TBH. In a nutshell, Mook is a poor man's JR Smith, cos they're both knuckleheads putting up useless shots despite Paul George, Lou and Kawhi are all free in the corner, and they are in a better position to make uncontested shots.

You hate to see it. undecided undecided
Re: The NBA Begins by xwolverine: 1:05pm On Feb 13
Looks like Lebron got pissed off with what morris said, guess what happens when he is pissed off embarassed embarassed

I am not sure there is P&R combination better than L. Williams/ M. Harrell.

Hayward with important plays on both ends of the court.

Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 6:11am On Feb 14
The all-star break came at the right time for Kawhi, lol grin 46 mins tonight
Re: The NBA Begins by chic2pimp(m): 9:51am On Feb 14
IThis Clippers team will only go as far as PG takes them. I know He is still easing himself back from Injury but still had to throw it out there. We all know Kawhi will turn up come the playoffs but which version of PG would? Playoff P or Indiana PG?

His movement and balance is a joy to watch. Like watching a beautiful dancer move.
Re: The NBA Begins by Flashh: 11:02pm On Feb 14
Boston came at Clippers with full force. Game was lit like the Playoffs. All Boston players showed up, giving sign they are ready for the upcoming Playoffs. Especially Jason Tatum, Smart, Kemba Walker and Gordon Hayward.

LOL. Paul George thought it's Playoffs, so he choked.

Celtics bball is holding Tatum back right now - I think a coaching change is in order to maximize him and Jaylen's potential. They can carry way more offensive load than we are seeing them do on average.
Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 11:06pm On Feb 14
it was this week I finally realized Lebron is old. The way he got up from that midcourt collision, thats how I would have gotten up... as in let me use technique to get up before I tweak something else grin

Coaching change ko! Coaching change ni!! Na so una dey ruin players development and career.
This is Tatums sophomore year, he has made a significant jump in his all around play and is now an All Star.
This is J. Brown’s 3rd year, he suffered last year because of he Kyrie but has resurged and it is a shame he is not an All Star because he deserves to be one.

Haha! You no kukuma get good mouth and sabi find trouble. grin
We are content with the direction of the team. I remember people thought the Celtics will tank for picks after Big 3 era but somehow ere have remained competitive.

Lool I hope the Celts have broken out the Brink truck for Jayson Tatum
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:02am On Feb 16
I am so happy for D. Booker. He deserved to be nominated by the coaches but he replaces Dame and I am just happy he made it in.

The bar shouldn’t be a problem. D. Ainge’s knows we have to get it done quick and not allow anyone complicate the process for us especially the media.

A. Gordon just got robbed. They should not have had D. Wade as one of the judges because he was obviously partial towards Jones considering the Miami connection. That last dunk over a 7’5 T. Fall should have been a 50. When you win and get booed by the fans then you know something is up.
