What?!!! On the same leg?
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 9:01pm On Nov 19
Oh man! This is devastating news and that has got to be rough on the man.
I wish Klay all the best man! Would

That right leg was compensating for his ACL injury and doing way too much work. I'm hurt ngl. I thought we'd just need to draft Wiseman and pick up where we left off. I hope he comes back strong.

Its very easy to favor the uninjured leg. He should have played himself into shape during the season.. Looks like he was trying to come back hot and ready

Warriors adding Kelly oubre. Mehn! steph, Kelly, Wiggins, draymond and Wiseman, Paschall, Kevon looney, marquies Chriss + a few roster adjustments is still a dangerous squad.
They are definitely not contenders but that's a mixture of vets and young hungry athletic players.
They could be a dangerous lower bracket playoff team that's going to but sand in a top team's garri cheesy In a 7 game playoff series.
Chocking Clippers beware! grin

How are they not contenders? Can you name one team you sure can beat them 4 out of 7 if spiritual steph returns? Unless Lakers add a legit gunner like a Beal, they will beat the Lakers. KCP cannot be the most reliable sharpshooter on the Lakers team, as good as he is.

Just so it doesnt look like Im downing Klay, if I had to choose between Klay and Steph being injured, I would choose Klay. I can live with Klay getting 30. If Steph gets 30, game over because he is a very good floor general and will get every one else involved. I still see warriors making noise this year. Clippers, better pray you dont meet warriors or nuggets this year grin
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 10:58am On Nov 20
Man, Klay can't just get a break. Season ending injury for the second year in a row? Damn. Quick recovery to him.

But on a different note, I'd love to see Steph lead a team without Klay. That thing that he ran away from last season, he must do it this time around grin. Unless he want to fake another season-ending finger injury. Then maybe the Warriors can tank and get another early first round pick next year. I wonder how a finger injury can rule you out for the season angry.

One thing is sure though, you can't cheat the game.

Steph has a 22ppg player, a No 2. Draft pick and a possible hall of famer as sidekicks. He shouldn't complain.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 11:02am On Nov 20
Steph has a chance to be MVP this season if he's serious.

I was hoping to see splash bro this season.

Will miss Klay.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 4:14am On Nov 21
The fact that Klay would be missing two years of his prime is pretty disheartening to put it mildly and you wonder if this is the last occurrence and how much it affects his game moving forward. He might not be a high flyer but his game is predicated on a lot of off the ball movement on both ends of the floor

The Warriors have enough to compete. If Wiggins and Oubre can improve their efficiency and shot selection it's hard to say they are not a 5th seed at worst. I will definitely take them ahead of any team not named the Lakers,Clippers and Nuggets
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 7:32am On Nov 21
Montrezl in, Dwight out. Hmm. Don't know what to make of that. It improves us offensively but diminishes us defensively. It was our length last season that made us a force to reckon with at the rim. And Dwight is getting 2.6m in Philly, which he surely could have gotten in LA. Does that mean Pelinka didn't want him? Are we bringing in another center? Anyway, I'm really interested in seeing how this works
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 8:09am On Nov 21
One thing is sure for the Lakers now: they have a lot of bench points. They are actually what the Clippers thought they were last season, except that they have Bron and AD as well. Add Kuzma, Markief and Caruso to Schroder, Montrezl and Matthews and we have a solid 6 on the bench, that's assuming we'll have a starting 5 of Bradley(please stay), KCP, Bron, AD and JaVale.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 8:19am On Nov 21
Imagine our second unit with Schroder, Montrezl and Kuzma. Lol. All three of them could feel they're the main guy. I hope they won't have a clash of egos cheesy

Bradley won't be staying. His minutes will diminish a lot with the addition of Schroder. He has opted out and got a new agent, that's should be a pointer to him leaving.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 2:58pm On Nov 21
Jerami Grant 20m/year, Gallinari 20m/year, Marcus Morris 16m/year. Damn, folks really getting overpaid in this league.

Naah, a new agent don't mean much. And he opted out cos he probably wants a few more millions.

Losing Bradley will mean our PG options are only Schroder and Caruso. We had Rondo last year, now its Schroder, the situation is more or less the same. Bradley will stay and play his usual 24 minutes. Except he's asking for what we can't pay.

Wishing him all the best.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 9:55pm On Nov 21
Avery Bradley gone grin. Thanks for everything; it was fun while it lasted. Who next are we going to revive their career?
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:31am On Nov 22
Lord!!! Why are we bringing the Kardashian drama to Bean Town? Well, it’s very cold in Boston so I expect them to stay away angry

Hopefully Tristan can focus on basketball and become that rim protector we desperately need. A Tristan, Theis and Williams C rotation is not bad.
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 7:43am On Nov 22
KCP gets paid. 3-year $40m deal. He's one of the core components of this team. Him, Bron and AD. Anything else na jara

Told y'all grin

THT is projected to get more meaningful game time this season. So they may be counting on Schroder, Caruso and him. Unless they get another guard in free agency.

THT is more of a 2 guard sha, but yes, he can fill that role of ceremonial point guard if he's playing alongside LeBron, just like Bradley did and KCP did in the playoffs.
Re: The NBA Begins by osayi90: 11:16am On Nov 22
Hi people, please is anyone willing to bet with me that the Lakers will repeat grin? I am also willing to bet that the nba finals will not go 7 games with whoever the Lakers meet. Please if you are interested let me know. BTW I am a Clippers fan.

I am also willing to bet that the Lakers will win above 65 games next season. Any takers. Thank you.

Anthony Davis complements LeBron so well that it is scary. The only way I lose the bet is if Davis or LeBron becomes injured. I am willing to bet anyway.

You are right. Same position as Bogdanovic if the Lakers are able to sign him. So we still need one more 1.

Above 65 games in a 72-game season?

The GOAT and his weird dealings sometimes. Hayward and Chandler Parsons are proof that white privilege is a thing

You're right. The team is ridiculously stacked. Hard to see them not repeating as things stand especially with the Nuggets foolishly letting Jerami Grant walk and not strengthening
Re: The NBA Begins by Markswag101: 3:38pm On Nov 22
Hawks are lowkey building a solid roster for Trae Young. Gallinari, Dunn and Rondo are solid deals

An area that would improve is definitely their guard play. Now they have LaMelo, D. Graham. M. Monk and Scary Terry. If LaMelo lives up to the hype and Graham keeps his form from last season their guard play should be okay.

I don't trust Hayward to stay healthy and therein lies the problem

It's about time they make a big leap next season. Can see Orlando dropping out of the playoffs
