If there is a player I trust to reel a team to a W, it definitely has to be Kawhi.

Omo the amount of young beasts in the game right now is crazy with doncic being the head of the snake.

The moment doncic gets a co-star, it's over for the league for the next decade.



No sir, I humbly disagree. The league has changed, it is officially a new era, as in no one will dominate year after year like lebron did, or like warriors did.
People were hyping Kawhi 2 years ago. Doncic and Trae are now in the conversation. Ja Morant is not far behind. The skill level in the league is such that even with big 2 or big 3 you can be beat by a solid roster with one superstar.

I think we are going to see some spectacular coaching in the next few years

Even after come from behind loss last year? The superstar convo has always been part myth. Your teamates can lose liver under pressure and still kill your game. If todays game gets into 4q and its close, I trust Kawhi. I dont trust PG3.

Haaaa mo timiss game!!! angry

Part myth? Not in my books or anyone’s book that I have seen. Despite last seasons disappointments, I will take my chances with Kawhi because of what he can do consistently on both ends of the court. As for PG13, he has set himself up for a huge backlash if the Clippers lose and he continues to struggle.

Last season the clippers were dishing out the bottling, now reverse is the case, Big ups to ty lue and kawhi, Doncic you did your best but the weight of carrying this team was too much for your young shoulders
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 11:15pm On Jun 06
Everyone queuing to have a moment with Doncic.. It’s easy to forget this kid is only 22.
Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 11:20pm On Jun 06
Any one know what Porzingis contract be like? Need to get rid of him imo, get a serviceable forward

Baba dey cash out steady. 31m every year guaranteed till 2024. He's still mentally injured that's how I see it, cos this guy had massive potentials wen he was on the knicks. I think he and Doncic don't complement each other

Wow, thanks. Cuban go dey do calculations right now.

It does feel like a mental block. Maybe doncics stardom intimidated him Or now that he has contract no need to perform again. Cuban has paid maga grin
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 3:01pm On Jun 07
My Chicago Cubs are seriously shocking me with our performance this season. We are currently 33-26 which I did not see coming because when we lost Theo Epstein I was ready for a total rebuild. I was ready to hear we would be trading K. Bryant/ Baez but somehow Jed Hoyer has come in and has done a terrific job with managing this roster.
Re: The NBA Begins by Android17: 12:59am On Jun 08
Except something happens, this Nets vs Bucks series will not be good. Sure, the Nets are playing great defense and what not but the refereeing decisions in their favor have been too poor and lopsided. Good defense is being played against KD and he is getting all sorts of whistles. It is so annoying. The NBA should do better.
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 1:11am On Jun 08
The Nets are disappointing a lot of their critics because they are playing opposite of what most people predicted. They are sharing the ball, moving the ball side to side for the better shot and most importantly, these guys are moving their feet and playing spectacular defense. When they go ISO, they go to the hot hand and defer to KD when they desperately need buckets.

The Bucks can not afford to go down 2-0..It is a huge risk to take against such an offensive team like the Nets.

Kris Middleton is a proper fraud and his only rival is his coach who thought it best to play his bench unit in the last stretch against KD and Kyrie. hehehe

I would like to see how this team does against Curry and Klay running around.
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 1:42am On Jun 08
I never envisaged this Nets team will play defense this good. Are you sure say na Nash and MDA dey coach these cats?
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 1:48am On Jun 08
Yes, you can share the ball when the other's offense stagnates. cheesy. The Bucks are not offering much offensively. Thank's to Giannis' limitations. He makes Griffin look like a star. grin

This is not even about Giannis limitations because Giannis is not even being good at what he is known for. I don't see how coach Budenholzer survives if the Bucks lose this series..

Bud can only redeem himself if he wins at least 3 games in this series. Anything less than that and he should never return. What adjustments were made from game 1? The Nets are running his Bucks out of the building and at the same time taking them out of their stride defensively. Kris Middleton has improved but you can tell this is not down to coaching. He just shot himself out of his slump.
Re: The NBA Begins by Android17: 2:16am On Jun 08
Giannis should have worked on his Free throws all post season. Can't believe an MVP calibre player in this day and age has regressed in taking free throws.
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 2:26am On Jun 08
Can you see how Giannis is losing the ball all over the place?

Re: The NBA Begins by Android17: 2:29am On Jun 08
30 point deficit by the end of the 3rd quarter. Nets did their home work. They are closing up on the 3 pt line, deflecting every pass and clogging the paint in rhythm when Giannis is with the ball. On the other end they are moving the ball really quickly and making the open man hit the shot. Their rotation players are in rhythm and then they have KD when all else fails. Bucks need to go back to the drawing board. This game is done.
Re: The NBA Begins by Danielnino00(m): 2:29am On Jun 08

Re: The NBA Begins by Shittaakeem(m): 2:37am On Jun 08
Heeeeeeey this is too much
Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 2:40am On Jun 08
This looks like a coaching fail to me. If you know the nets are full of sharpshooters, I think you have to slow the game down, make them have to pick up the dribble to get in the paint. Just allowing them to spot up and shoot from the 3pt line looks like a very bad idea vs this team

In a series, the best player of any team has to absolutely show up and dominate, else you can't blame the others.
Re: The NBA Begins by Shittaakeem(m): 2:48am On Jun 08
Disappointed.
3's everywhere
Wow good thing Lakers got eliminated early it would have been 4-7 for LeBron
Re: The NBA Begins by Roland17(m): 2:48am On Jun 08
How do you come in when the game is already done and commit a frustration foul? A player in the first rotation should be committing that foul, not Diakite, if you are trying to send a message!
