Michael Rapaport just leaked private convos with KD. They insulted each other and KD seemed to have threaten him, the hood way.

That journalist is a cry baby though

Durant too should learn to keep quiet. Must you reply every every?
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

Welcome to the 2021/2022 MLB season! I am excited about this season especially because of the young players who will electrify us and look to change the direction of the game. I am talking about players like J. Soto (Nationals), F. Tatis Jr (Padres), V. Guerrero (Blue Jays). This is an very important season for the MLB because viewership and interest is dropping tremendously and MLB understands they have to let go of some of the old unwritten rules and allow players become more expressive.

As for my Cubs? Dem start the season with a loss. I saw the first 5 innings. I don't expect much from us this season. It almost feels like a total rebuild at this point.
That baseball na one sport I never understood till date but I heard it's a punters delight so I'm curious

The distasteful level of hypocrisy from LeBum’s cult..

Let's pretend like it’s no news that Bron has been actively recruiting S. Curry to join him in LA.. Some sources are saying even before the All-Star games. Soooo much for KD assembling.. Worse still, it is the same Chef whom his stans swear is irrelevant in the history of shooting in the NBA..

No be here we read say James Harden has had more influence on the game than the Chef? Hahahahaha..

These things play themselves out.. No be here we dey? Baba dey the ring hustle business and is already making his plans for next season.

I don talk am before.. Everyone is in the ring hustle.. na who hustle pass na him come be the matter now.

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

Sometimes you say some foolish things. It is okay to be a LeBron fan and still say sensible things from a basketball point of view. KD can only score...he can't defend right?
Hehehehe. I no fit laugh grin

This Denver Nuggets team look really good together. I used to worry they were guard heavy but all that has changed with the trades they completed during the deadline.
A. Gordon looks like a different players especially on defense. I don’t think I have ever seen him move his feet as much as he has done since he joined the Nuggets. He is guarding one through five positions..

I am worried about the Clippers..
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

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.

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!

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.

Coveniently, you guys are selectively forgetting that the current wave of superteaming and ring chasing mindset was triggered after a 73-9 GS Warriors, with the then current MVP and 3 All Stars, acquired Kevin Durant, the greatest scorer in NBA history and made themselves unplayable, blotting out any iota of competition in the NBA for 3 seasons and 2 rings until injury scuppered that unfair dominance.

Same KD then, sam ;De KD now, but no we must conveniently forget that GS happened and start the remembering from the morning Lebron tried to recruit Kawhi.

Lebron is not entirely innocent in this melee but guys some balance is good for the health.

grin 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.

Lol. You said all these things only to bring up defense? grin I thought you were going to mention rebounding, playmaking, passing and all the rest cheesy.

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 grin Someone that has not made one single all-defense team in his entire career. Go sleep my friend
