Stat of the year: Warriors starting 5 includes 4 all stars while the 3 teams they've played so far in the post season have had 1 all star combined being Gordon Hayward. This isn't including Kawhi since he only played 3/4 of a game. As good as the West was this year, the Warriors have had an incredibly easy path so far
I have my Lebron Glasses on as well, but I respect LeBron's move way more than Durant's. LeBron gave Cleveland 7 years and was never really close to being a championship team, so he formed the super team in Miami but it the Heat weren't even a great team at the time. Durant was one win away from beating the team he would eventually flip to who have already been to two finals in a row and were considered the best team in the league. The Warriors didn't need him, they just needed him off of the Thunder and Durant is just chasing rings over pride.
I really don't care about stars or stats at this point. I just want some kids who love playing basketball and will give it everything they've got (sorry to get cheesy). I think it is the ultimate shame if anyone ever has to question your effort like some players we've had recently and I know I personally would want that to be the last thing someone thinks about me as a player.
He's been in every thread lately calling everyone snowflakes trying to make everything political lol...Go to ESPN or CNN and start your comments dude, nobody wants that here
Get off our website, LeBron
Today probably has better pure athletes, but I bet the 90's players were better at the actual sport of basketball.
Really good point. I actually get bored sometimes watching basketball now with the game being mostly who can make the most 3's. It seems a lot of the things that make basketball great are slowly going away. There isn't much fluidity and great passing anymore or at least not at the level it used to be. Players highlights in a decade are just going to be a montage of 3 point shots going in.
It's hard to argue with any of this. The only counterpoint I would make is that the game is completely different beyond the ticky-tack fouls. It's now a game of drive and kick, so 3 point shooters are a huge part of the game more than the 90's. So, the Cavs playing 90's ball wouldn't have picked up players like Channing Frye, Korver, JR Smith, and maybe even Kevin Love. They would have players surrounding Lebron and Kyrie that better fit your descriptions needed to compete back then. But that wasn't really the question so I agree that they wouldn't be able to hang around if you put this team in the 90's.
The frustrating thing is that you never know what team you are getting with the Cavs even in the playoffs. Kyrie and Love can both become passive, LeBron can seem uninterested and loses focus (game 3 and half of last night). I think when everyone is doing what they do best like the 2nd half of last night, they can compete with any team.
I also won't be surprised if it is something way more harsh knowing how ruthless BB was at times. We've already seen Kim has a side that doesn't mind Jimmy's ways and she even joined him a few times. I think Jimmy will be the one that either brings her down and gets her involved in something bad or he will make the decision to part ways with her to save her. I don't think we will see Kim just walk away though
I've seen it so many times where the best player on a bad team threatens to quit the team and then they are back in two days. I wouldn't be surprised if Lyle has done this a few times and Matta just took it with a grain of salt until the arrest happened. Then maybe they just said enough is enough and cut all ties

Thanks...I figured they gave some kind of hint
I'm still curious what the time frame of the things happening are compared to BB. The difference between Saul now and BB Saul is huge because he already has his reputation and clients when he is introduced in BB. I'm guessing maybe 5-6 years before. I also think it would be cool if they make the connection to how BB Saul came in contact with the guy that he promises can give Walt a new life, unless BB covered that which I can't remember.
Not sure why you keep trying to put words in my mouth. Obviously nobody would purposely not sign anyone in the top 10, I clearly stated they just don't rely on it. My only point was that they do not feel pressure to use resources and energy to keep a higher ranked player that may be wavering, instead they feel confident signing someone that they can develop (Damien Harris-Mike Webber).
I never said they failed at anything. They have a plan that doesn't rely on having to sell out for top talent, instead they can trust their development process.
Yep, that was exactly my point
Yeah, 8th I believe. He was the 3rd not mentioned with Okudah and Young
Dez 2.0...I would put some money ($5) on him being a star in 2-3 years
I feel like Noah Brown will go down as one of the least utilized players to come through Ohio State. I can see him being a big time NFL wide receiver for years to come. He has the perfect example ahead of him at Dallas with Dez Bryant because they are almost exactly identical body types and speed
It wouldn't be surprising if there was a failed physical given his foot issues. Hopefully that isn't the case though and he finds a new home
I'm curious if Parr is an OSU grad.
A tad bit of irony adding this to the end of a post about false accusations
I am wondering if this trial is going to lead to the fall of HHM somehow. I feel like they were doing some foreshadowing when Howard warned Chuck that he felt taking the stand may harm HHM's reputation. Maybe Chuck really does go crazy and does something outside of the lines when Jimmy doesn't end up losing his license. Either way, It's going to be a great last half of the season.
