13points on 48% TS??
Damn I always considered Ben Simmons a bit of a fraud but I didn't know it was this bad

Afromentalist:KD is my guy but he clearly has issues. Why will you bark at every ekuke that takes shots at you. He really needs to get a social media manager or something but this is someone who uses burners so that would never work. I just feel there's a level you get to in life that you accept you will have haters. Criticism is the cost of praise

Roland17:That baseball na one sport I never understood till date but I heard it's a punters delight so I'm curious
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 10:23am On Apr 03|
Roland17:Abeg leave Bronsexuals and their hypocrisy. Someone in his athletic prime teamed up with two other players in the top 5 of his draft. That's like in 4 years time Luka, Trae Young and Michael Porter Jr teaming up or prime Jordan staying in Chicago while Barkley and Hakeem join him. Yes they are not a 73-9 team but who would be crazy enough to bet against them.
The same Brooklyn they were trolling for being too small, lacking defense, Kyrie a basket case, him and Harden would fight.
Now they have meshed and added washed LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake to provide size. So it is Blake Griffin who can barely dunk and 37 year old Aldridge that changes them to an unbeatable force. Smh
The said guy they swear is doing it on his own has AD, Marc Gasol, Drummond, Montrez,Schroeder but nobody else should improve their team

osayi90:Hehehehe. I no fit laugh
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 2:49pm On Apr 03|
Roland17:I'm really intrigued by that team. A guy like Gordon should be a lot more efficient moving forward with a wizard like Jokic giving him easier looks
Plus MPJ is balling! If that boy unlocks his offensive game fully that Denver team would be a problem now and moving forward

A40:Big facts there. No bigger truth has been said in this here platform
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:14am On Apr 04|
If you are not watching the Zags v UCLA, you are missing. The Bruins are trying sooo hard to keep the tempo of this game slow as it is the only way they stand a chance against the Zags. This is infact the first time an opponent has stayed with the Zags this long, keeping the score line within 2 buckets.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:16am On Apr 04|
It's Gordon's defense that has impressed me more than anything. He is moving his feet and guarding multiple positions which takes a lot of the burden off Jokic. This is Jokic's MVP crown to lose and winning is an important variable. If they continue to win they will climb the standing and that will help with his case especially since he is playing in the West.

I just wish referees will play less of a role in basketball games. I know UCLA is a cinderalla story and their coach is on point, but this game against Gonzaga is close partly because the referees are whistling friendlier to UCLA. I hope it is just me but that is what I can see.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:43am On Apr 04|
The Bruins have hit the magic number 70 and that means this is going to be a nail biter.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:51am On Apr 04|
What a rejection by Suggs! My goodness and then turnaround to create a bucket from the ensuing TO
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:55am On Apr 04|
Riley gets him (Suggs) back with his own block!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:58am On Apr 04|
Heading to OT. The Bruins definitely have the Zags where they want them.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Android17: 3:58am On Apr 04|
NBA refs need to learn how to ref games by watching their NCAA counterparts. That charge on Juzang would have been 2 free throws in the NBA.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:03am On Apr 04|
Timme offense around the rim reminds me of "THE TRUTH".
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:12am On Apr 04|
Unbelievable clutch shot by Suggs to win it for the Zags.. A kiss from above from the rim!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:14am On Apr 04|
That shot will forever remain in the history books.
The Zags remain undefeated..
Baylor v Gonzaga
|Re: The NBA Begins by Android17: 4:14am On Apr 04|
Take a bow "Suggs". Credit UCLA. Deserved to be where they got to. Juzang will make it in the NBA. Timme is big money but I hope he does not end like Christian Laettner. Happy for Ayayi.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 5:50pm On Apr 04|
Last night’s game between UCLA and Gonzaga is one the reasons I love college hoops. It is also another reason why I argue in support of keeping it amateur.. What a performance by both teams!
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:08am On Apr 05|
Remember when I said we needed to give "Time Lord" more minutes? Well, he is getting them and has absolutely been unplayable. He has to be our single most important offseason business. Good to see Langford back, I have a feeling he will come really good if we remain patient with managing his injuries.
|Re: The NBA Begins by joshboo(m): 2:13pm On Apr 05|
Afromentalist:KD's always got security and complex issues. Mk him go sleep abeg. Dude feels he's the best player ever and wants respect for that. Nonsense
|Re: The NBA Begins by joshboo(m): 2:17pm On Apr 05|
Oga stop the cap how's KD the greatest scorer ever?
|Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 5:27pm On Apr 05|
Ok. So why I've often felt Steve Kerr is a tad overrated I strongly believe if these Warriors don't make the play in then questions need to be asked. The idea that if your team is not in contention for a title then you should just flat out not try to compete is flat out asinine to me. That is what guys like Draymond are openly saying and that's what the body language seems to be saying all around the franchise. At the very minimum show some fighting spirit
I don't know how you rank these guys in the pantheon of dynasties if without Klay they can't finish in the top 10 in their conference. They better get their shyte together
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:47am On Apr 06|
Oh my! The 3 headed guard monster of Baylor are giving it to Gonzaga. They seem like a step ahead of the Zags.. They are rebounding better on both ends and have more energy.. The Zags may be digging themselves too deep into a hole.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:13am On Apr 06|
The Zags fight back to reduce the deficit to 10, remember, they were down by 19 at some point.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:50am On Apr 06|
You can't turn the ball over against this Baylor side because they will make you pay on the other end.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:57am On Apr 06|
Mark Few has to slow this game if his team stands any chance of turning this around. I know! Its ironic because fast paced transition basketball is how the Zags want to play but against this Baylor side? They have matched their pace and overmatched their energy and intensity. Baylor is punishing them with quick transition buckets and making their 3 point shots. You have to slow this game down and make it a half court game.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:00am On Apr 06|
The Zags look defeated, their entire demeanor look deflated.
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:14am On Apr 06|
The Zags can't even make their freethrows..
|Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 4:18am On Apr 06|
I don't see any way back for the Zags. This is over.
|Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 1:45pm On Apr 06|
osayi90:Lol. You said all these things only to bring up defense? I thought you were going to mention rebounding, playmaking, passing and all the rest .
KD's defense is just as good as any average player's defense out there. We know the great defenders in this league. We know guys that have at least 2 very good attributes. Harden is a great scorer and also a great playmaker. KD's defense can't even be mentioned in the same sentence with Harden's playmaking in terms of second best attribute. Or LeBron's floor control/passing, or Giannis' defense. All these are their second best attributes.
E say na defense Someone that has not made one single all-defense team in his entire career. Go sleep my friend
