lol finger injury? I thought he broke his forearm, had some complications following surgery and had to have a repeat procedure aquote author[=steady986 post=96244107]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 . 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 .
One thing is sure though, you can't cheat the game.[/quote]

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 In a 7 game playoff series.
Chocking Clippers beware!

As much as I really enjoy the LeBron vs Jordan debates. I think too much of everything gets boring,
Its like 80% of the basketball content of espn and fox sports now.

We need to put more respect on curry's playoffs performances. The guy has had 3 bad games in the NBA playoffs finals out of 5 trips to the finals and suddenly he's a choker.
Iguodala was never finals mvp but the media voters who had this old school bias couldn't wrap their head around the fact that a PG who is relatively small, unathletic, white skinned, jump shot shooting and supposedly soft can be the best players in a championship team.

Depending on the extent of Ads injury, the Lakers maybe in trouble.
The heat definitely smell blood

Took a gamble with a small amount of money.

I got my first ROI on CRMI too this evening.
My take though is that in the long run, it's not a viable investment option.
Putting aside greed, it's not sustainable to run a business that pays out 110 % profit within 3 months.
Something just doesn't add up.
|Investment / Re: Crowdfunding Investment Platforms And Options (non Agritech Categories) by etidy: 9:45am On Oct 06|
My take is that themap.ng is either an elaborate scam or they have entangled themselves in unprofitable deals.
Going forward it is invest at your own risk with them.

WeissVonner:Most desirable? I think the lakers will do better by pairing AD with a perimeter player.

The problem is that, is there another
marquee free agent in 2021 not named Giannis?
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 9:35pm On Oct 01|
The fact is the lakers has been the best team in the league this season, wire to wire.
They finished number 1 in a tougher conference, faced more adversity than most teams and will deservedly win the title.
This title takes LeBron to at least on equal pedestal with Jordan and whatever the haters say, this has been one of the toughest NBA playoffs ever.
To win in a bubble is the ultimate test of character. No home court advantage despite earning it in the regular season, no fans to give you energy. Just your own efforts mano a mano on equal footing against your opponents.
I see the likes of skip are already bringing up an asterisks because of the injuries to dragic, bam and butler which is ridiculous.
But then again, it's also ridiculous that
Some part of the media and fandom still hold it against steph for beating an underhanded cavs team in 2015.

Can lebtards stop making this look like the media is against LeBron and the lakers when nearly everyone tips the lakers to win.
I expect the lakers to win. No excuses
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 2:15pm On Sep 29|
Let's for one moment imagine the heat wins the final. LeBron will be 3-7 yikes
Mehn! I think this one reason for him to rather die than lose this NBA title.
He wins and he's equal or has overtaken Jordan in most people's books.
He loses and the haters will forever remind us that he had 3
7 finals loses.
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 7:05am On Sep 28|
Mehn the heat offer a dangerous opposition to the lakers oh.
Bam to anchor the interior, wing defenders like butler, iggg and crowder and reliable wing shooters in Tyler, Duncan and dragic. Very dangerous team.
They move the ball well too, Brad Steven describes their cutting like that of the warriors, High praises.
Unlike the the previous opponents of the lakers where once you cut of the head usually with double teams like Harden, Lillard and Murray + jokic you paralyze the team. The heat's offence can run through any given night and we should expect lots of jerami grants.
The defining factor will be lakers supporting case.
If KCP, Kuzma, Caruso, Danny Green and Morris all take turns to hit perimeter shoots, the laker will win and it will open the driving lane for LeBron.
Why did the lakers cut Quinn Cook for Jr Smith?. JR Appears even more useless
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 10:09am On Sep 25|
Doc rivers is a good coach, he's definitely not elite.
He has had several good teams with the clippers and can't even make a conference final.
I have at least Eric spo, nick nurse, Greg popovich, Rick Carlisle, Steve Kerr, Brad Steven's ahead of him
And right now Mike Malone is also doing a better job

Doc rivers is the only coach in American sports to have blown multiple 3-1 leads (3)
He has also blown three 3-2 leads
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 4:51am On Sep 25|
My takes on this game
1. Rebounding was essentially the difference maker for the lakers. Cleaned up defensive possessions and also got a shit ton of second chance points
2. Playoff rondo
3. LeBron and Jokic look spent yikes.
I have never seen LeBron this tired. Age is definitely telling.
4. LeBron did a fair job guarding Murray in the 4th quarter
5. The nuggets panicked at the end and stopped moving the ball.
6. The nuggets are still very dangerous but I don't think they are coming back this time time around.
Lakers in 6.

Tyler herro is the next in the line on the splash bro succession. Young king
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 2:58am On Sep 23|
Barring a collapse by the nuggets, this will be a long series. They found something in game 2 and the lakers escaped with that win.
This could easily have been 1-1 with the nuggets looking to make it 2-1

I was thinking about the clippers and bucks collapse, both teams have some good shooters then something struck me. No team has won the NBA in the last decade without one of the following
1. An elite facilitator or
2. A team of multiple average facilitators/intelligent players playing In a coordinated offense.
You look at the clippers the best facilitator was Kawhi averaging 4.2 assist, on the raptors he had Lowry averaging 8.7 Assists in the finals.
It's not enough to have shooters but when the game grinds to an half court offense in the playoffs you need some coordinating the offense and creating easy buckets. This is why LeBron will always be a big plus in any team in the playoffs.
Get Giannis a Chris Paul who is a an elite facilator + respectable shooter and he can play more off the ball. He can get some easy buckets off alley Oops, offensive rebounds etc.
It's one deficiency that Giannis can't shoot. It's another problem that he's the best creator on his team.
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 2:14pm On Sep 18|
You guys have one big problem right now, : Kemba! he's a defensive liability but you can live with that if he plays to his offensive potential. But now his offense also stinks (injury?) I suspect he's not 100% fit, there were rumours of that going into the bubble.
In addition, Tatum is yet to be confident with regards to closing out games, he's not a choker (aka George fraud Paul) but he's not yet a closer.
Kemba needs to be that man.
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 7:57am On Sep 18|
Dragic has been low key heat's mvp in the bubble.
He's has been dropping steady 20+ points, clutch shots, and he's significantly outplaying kemba

This Clippers collapse is so funny sha
1. Kawhi rejects the lakers, stalling their free agency to sabotage them
2. Show an ad saying he's the new king of LA
3. PG rejects the lakers+lebron after a feminine documentary to stay back in OKC only to abandon Westbrook to join the clippers
4. Ty lue rejects once in a lifetime opportunity to be the lakers coach to take an assistant role with the clippers
5. Marcus Morris choose the clippers
6. Reggie Jackson choose the clippers
7. Magic abandoned ship and bad mouthed Lakers management
8. The media especially WOJ labeled the lakers dysfunctional and that Vogel was an inferior coach.
All this for the darling Clippers to collapse
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 2:35pm On Sep 17|
The nuggets maybe the new warriors. Talented young team lurking in the shadows while everyone was busy yapping lob city, OKC and spurs they suddenly learnt how win from the blues tasted blood and the championship windows of other teams closed
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 3:56pm On Sep 16|
I agree 100 % and what makes jokic so deadly is his passing and shooting range . you double him and he finds an open man, you choke the paint and he makes the jump shot.
Giannis needs to go and learn from jokic.
|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 5:37am On Sep 16|
The clown actually ran ads for new balance implying that he's the new king of LA.
Meanwhile Patrick Beverley 's tears is every nba players delight. Lillard and cj go wild on Twitter

|Sports / Re: The NBA Begins by etidy: 4:54am On Sep 16|
You don't go to LA after a circus of a free agency, set up shop opposite the king, get all the players you want, win all the trades and hoard all the talent in the league including all the best assistant coaches and load management just to score 14 points in a game 7.
Curry would have been murdered and is still been murdered while having relevant excuses and he didn't score 14 points in an elimination game
