Lmaooooooo his big mouth was what did him in. Blaming his costume. I don't know who asked him to skip leg day because I have never understood how a 6'7 ninja had such tiny legs

After the Ortiz fight I knew he had casted. His L was a few fights late

He got it coming, the rabid loudmouth. He's become the butt of jokes.

Dillian Whyte's laughter made my own laugh laugh cheesy

He skipped leg day after adding nearly 19 pounds in muscle mass/ weight. Honestly, I am glad he go beat like a thief, hopefully, he has realized he is not as invincible as he thinks.

He has been on my team since beginning of the season. He should have blown earlier this year. Kemba being out for a bit has given him more room I think

The Rockets will be 9-2 since they started the small ball. If D. Morey, D’Antoni and the Rockets find a way to win a championship or even make the finals with this small ball roster, be rest assured it will change everything about the league.

The NBA is a copycat league!

Remember Mavs under Don Nelson with Nash, Nowitzki, Nick Van Exel. Or Dantoni's potent Suns with Nash ,Amare, Joe Johnson, Matrix and co? Those guys were ridiculous when it came to 3s - in todays league they would score 140+ nightly. But no rings. Granted, this is a different era, and the league encourages small ball. Buut playoffs are about matchups and adjustments. Not having bigs is a glaring hole that will be exploited come playoffs.

Add to that, 3s dont fall easy under playoffs pressure...we could easily get bounced in the first round by a team with a veteran coach or floor general. Our likely first round opponents at 3-4 seed are Mavs and Jazz, two teams that fit the bill with savvy coach, grimy team. Or, Thunder even, and you know CP3 would have a wet dream bouncing us in the first round grin

Ohh well thus far you can't argue with the results. So long as guys like PJ Tucker don't drop dead due to the minutes they are playing then who the fuq knows?

Westbrook has been playing out of his mind too
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 12:22pm On Feb 27
Lmaoooo even after saying there are some arguments you just unlook. Some others just took the hint bruh.

Why jump into jejune argument when the body of work and results over their careers can speak for themselves

There are a lot of different ways to make money online and on sport betting as well. As for me, I was using basketball odds on hoopsbetz.com that is a good way to make money, to watch sport results and also to know more about different sport matches as well.

Everyone knows that I am Big Fan of Giannis but bwoi do I love Harden's Clapback. Man you love to see it grin grin. Still doesn't make the opinions they have about each other wrong though.


Also Harden says He is the Best Player in the League. Damn Right! That's the attitude I feel every Top5-10 players in the league should have.

I think Harden is well within his rights to defend himself. What Giannis said was low-key disrespectful

Giannis has the sickest Eurostep in the league so I don't quite agree he has no skill

So it was not disrespectful when Harden questioned Giannis's MVP. This beef if that is what it is now was stared by the Rockets and Harden when they suggested that Giannis's MVP was just about media narrative. Giannis IMHO is just hitting back with snide comments

It was as well but everybody knows the Rockets are sore losers. But since Harden and Giannis are not cool like that you don't expect Harden wouldn't clapback at some point.

Their argument is jejune anyway. Giannis is better than Harden atm and was last season too

Exactlt How I feel about it too.


We all know being a MVP calibre player(Nevermind MVP)takes lots of skill so that accusation is simply meh. Likewise Giannis calling an Elite facilitator a Ball Hog is just wrong. It's funny because He absloutely Loves Curry so I think the Bad blood between them goes a lot deeper than we know.

Harden is right to hit back. Im repping Giannis any day but he's wrong to keep taking direct shots at another player. That's low, disrespectful even

I concur, especially when the assist stats supports Harden. Harden averages 7.3 assists/ game and ranks top 10 in that category. I also love the fact that Harden did not avoid or back down from going at Giannis.

Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 3:18am On Mar 01
All this is well and good till Giannis puts the clamps on Harden and holds him for 4/20 shooting when they meet.

I wouldn't be suprised if a lot of players actually agree with Giannis's take but perhaps Giannis should have kept it to himself
