So a tweet with a "favorite star" can't be faked? Seriously, what kind of gullible idiot are you? cheesy
We can see proof of that in your WAEC results and common entrance cut off marks. Idiots

You're a m0ron. That tweet was not fake. Anyone with a functional brain can tell.

Your stupidity is in thinking I don't know LeNomad is a good player. What is complimentary about stating basic facts. Only a crackhead like Nick Wright will opine that KD was on LeNomad level in 2010.

Not even the worst Bron hater will pass such an asinine take

A useless nonce like you doesn't take days of in your relentless quest for foolishness.


Well KD did average 30 and led the league in scoring. I'm sure the MJ mob would buy into that argument. But then again, the MJ mob are a brainwashed pack of alpacas.

You can't prove Nick Wright posted that tweet. You can speculate all you want but that's all its ever going to be. And in the end, it doesnt change the fact that everything he's saying now, holds weight. You are just too dense to want to hear it.

What does Finals MVP have to do with CP3 vs Iguodala in the year of our Lord 2018. Are you comparing the importance of CP3 to the Rockets vs Iggy for the Warriors let me know so I can disembark from this argument sharp sharp. Can't be arguing with someone being deliberately dishonest

The Rockets went from a 3rd or 4th seed to 66 wins with the addition of CP3 and you're talking of Iggy and an award he won 3 years ago. Jesus wept

How many wins did the Rockets have the next season? As I said if you're going to be deliberately dishonest no point continuing this argument

Don't erroneously claim that the 3's they made was what kept them ahead. They missed 27 3's during the duration of the game. Doesn't mean they made 7 3's and missed 27 subsequent ones.
The Warriors made 9 more 3's and still only won by 9.

No one said the 72-10 bulls were unbeatable. I don't know why you are shadow boxing with yourself. I said the KD Warriors were as well and the Rockets proved it by taking them to 7 and missing 3's at a historical clip to lose that game

Everyone reading the posts can tell who is being dishonest. The only reason we are having this conversation is your claim that the KD-Warriors were beatable and by that you meant could lose a series- not a game. I attempted to establish that the peak of that team was 2016-17. Moreso, I was willing to concede that at 3-2 and with a double digit lead at half time, an MJ led Rockets could have won in 2017-18. I then contended factually that the 2016-17 version were definitely a tough matchup for Lebron and statistically could have defeated any of MJs winning teams. You have changed the definition of beatable; brought up missed threes, no CP3, Kawhi, no help for MJ, came back from retirement; they were not the same team etc when that same argument can be made for GSW after 2016-17 season. All because you think I am here to defend Lebron. You now want to claim that 27 missed threes for the Rockets was "over the course of the game". When every one knows that Rockets led by double digits at half time ((which means whatever they were doing was working)). Funfact, I actually looked up the boxscores and the Rockets made 1/21 threes in the 2nd half. They were also down by 13 towards the end. That means the warriors made a 24 point swing in the game. Which is reflective of 8 of the 9 more threes they made over the rockets. Meanwhile, the crucial Chris Paul was only able to see his team win by a total of 5 points in games 4 and 5 put together but the Iguodala that was a defensive pain in the behind to Rockets was less crucial. Then life gives us a chance to check their cruciality, when both teams are not the same again with KD out at 2-2 and with Chris Paul and Iguodala starting for their respective teams, the less crucial person was more instrumental to his team winning 4-2. But I am dishonest. Let us agree to disagree.

Majority of NBA fans weren't buying into that argument you mouth breathing sodomite. Only your dick nosed fraud and paid shill Nick Wright did

How he went from LeNomad over hyped in 2010 to GOAT in 2016 only Klutch Sports checks can explain grin

Your boy is a fraud and it must eat at your core to know that as recently as 2010 he considered LeNomad overhyped. Nick Wright's takes means fuckall and his only road to popularity is stoking the egos of your insecure King and fetid Bronsexuals like yourself

Yes. You can be beatable and still win a series. Don't complicate simple English. Don't forget I corrected you when you said that team's peak was 2018

I didn't dispute that the 2016/2017 team would be a tough ask for anybody I only pointed out factual things that actually happened. Didn't say that team would actually be beat. I just pointed that even that team as great as it was had some losses and some bounces that went their way

When did I change the definition of beatable? If we are talking about a beatable team that didn't lose at it's peak surely you must understand without me spelling it out that the next best thing is to look for a team that took it to the distance

I don't know what you're on about. Surely you don't believe a team can miss 27 consecutive 3's in one quarter or even one half. Because it's literally never happened in playoff history till that day

Besides you're the one who initially suggested they went 7/17 and went on to miss 27 3's. So you're on your own.

It took the Rockets missing 37 3's for the Warriors to win by 9. That is to show you how bad Golden State were

I forgot basketball is now like football that uses goal aggregate

So discard Klay and KD's 63 pts and Steph and KD's 60. Give all the credit to Iggy for being crucial

And of course ignore the fact that the 19 Rockets won 12 fewer games and were clearly not as good. Ohh and in the closeout game CP was 27-11-6. It's easy to be ''crucial' when you don't have to be your team's 1st or even second option on offense

I disagree. A healthy Chris Paul would have led the Rockets past Golden State in 2018. The Warriors were down at halftime in Game 7 by double digits and if they had any player with any kind of midrange game they beat the Warriors
well, we cant really tell, cos they didnt have those players with mid range games. so end of the day its filled up with WHAT IFS.
but it just seems like Its impossible to beat the warriors in a series best of 7, at their best.

That team was supposed to win a 4peat. Have you forgotten what they said at their unveiling? There was a palpable fear that we were seeing a dynasty that had never existed in league history.
It was easy and it was a question of how many rings they would win not if they would make 4 Finals. You had Wade, Bosh, Battier on defense, Mike Miller off the bench then they added Ray Allen, added Rashad Lewis and other role players. That team was super loaded and the league should never have stood a chance.
Comparing starting 5 to Starting 5, the warriors are ahead of that heat team.

I still maintain that that Heat team should have won 3 or 4 rings in a row
that's where coaching-skills and leadership had a factor.
if that team was coached by a Phil Jackson, they were more likely to 4peat.

and as per the first finals loss against Dallas, I wasn't really surprised. Lebron and wade were just taking turns thruout that season and into the playoffs.

their last season together was even worse. wade was completely washed out by that season.
also, I think I remember bosh having to play some games, upon being unfit/injured

hahahahah, man this is a great day!!! I wish fertita had fired him instead of letting him resign, escorted him with armed guards out of the premises, and made him carry his own wretched belongings to the car.

We had a good shot at the ring this year, but the dunce used our team as experiment. I wish one of our arch enemies, hopefully Jazz pick this guy up so he can destroy them.

In one breath, Iguodala is not crucial. In another breath, Lebron has high efficiency and buckets because there are no competent centers to block him like it was in the eighties and nineties.

I'll love nothing more but he'll probably opt out for money the Lakers can't possibly offer him.

He shouldn't feel he's arrived all of a sudden though. He still averaged fewer points in the playoffs than he did in the regular season.

Can't blame him. There's a very small window to get paid as a youngster. He was magnificent in the playoffs against the Clippers and the Lakers. He knows there are a lot of teams willing to pay big money for his skillset. He's still young, it's not time for ring chasing yet.

Watching him coach the Clippers is going to be a whole lot of fun. I hope they have a great regular season so they don't sack him before the post season. They will soon know the pains of being coached by Ty Lue.

Re: The NBA Begins by Nobody: 4:38pm On Oct 17
Lakers have a non tax payer mid-level exception of 10 million dollars. They also have THT and Kuzma as trade assets and a first round pick this year. The Lakers have a whole lot of space to improve this offseason. Plus they actually have the whole offseason to work without Kawhi sabotaging them. The only team that I'm actually worried about is the Warriors.
