Jun 06th 2021
11
      agreed. but i'm curious why they're not checking for proof of vaccine
Jun 06th 2021
14
           I know that they're doing "vaxxed only" sections at Oakland A's games
Jun 06th 2021
21
                They’re doing that right now for Dodger games…
Jun 06th 2021
22
Why isn’t Brunson getting any run??
Jun 06th 2021
10
All that tick for Trey Burke was a bummer to see
Jun 06th 2021
12
I didn’t understand why he was in the game
Jun 06th 2021
17
Carlisle could do a lot better
Jun 06th 2021
13
He's been pretty bad this series. That having been said...

OKS Luka hater checking in
Jun 06th 2021
16
Literally every season begins with media protections of what to expect
Jun 06th 2021
19
      I should log off because Luka’s not the MVP this year?
Jun 06th 2021
24
           Nothing about what I said can reasonably be construed to that conclusion
Jun 06th 2021
26
           He was the consensus MVP pick...preseason
Jun 07th 2021
40
                What young guns are you talking about?
Jun 07th 2021
58
                Consensus? Crown? Sources, please.
Jun 07th 2021
60
           What leap was luka supposed to make exactly after a 29,9 and 9 season?
Jun 06th 2021
27
                Luka's also almost certainly going to make First Team All-NBA. Again.
Jun 06th 2021
28
                Aside from the Steph hype and Russ’ historical season Luka’s team...
Jun 06th 2021
29
                The issue is how desperate the NBA and media are to crown a new
Jun 06th 2021
32
                     Dame and Luka's numbers are similar at best
Jun 06th 2021
35
                     As a 6ers fan, I’m suppose to hate Donovan Mitchell
Jun 07th 2021
39
                          Not too hard to explain.
Jun 07th 2021
45
                               That doesn’t explain the almost total lack of respect for DMitch
Jun 07th 2021
49
                                    It's because he plays with a soon-to-be four-time All-NBA teammate.

Kawhi when he's on the DayQuil is a bad man.

Jun 07th 2021
63

Jun 07th 2021
69
He looks out of place. He's better than that, but he aint Luka.
Jun 08th 2021
105
so Thibs got COY
Jun 07th 2021
64
Monty got more first places votes too.
Jun 07th 2021
66
Monty's probably cool COY is like the kiss of death for black coaches...
Jun 07th 2021
67
It’s mind boggling.
Jun 07th 2021
68
Agreed. Should've gone to Monty or Nate.
Jun 07th 2021
75
Nah, Knicks got a lot better but Monty or Nate couldve
Jun 07th 2021

Giannis is quickly reaching "regular season guy" status....
Jun 07th 2021
84
Tatum had to play all 3 of em and took a game off em
Jun 07th 2021
86
"regular season guy" = a star with a shit jumper who relies on driving
Jun 07th 2021
88
Yeah i said the same thing last year.
Jun 07th 2021
93
It's just as much everyone else.
Jun 08th 2021
96
You just described Russell Westbrook perfectly.
Jun 08th 2021
109
without Tony/Manu/Kawhi Tim is probably a "regular season guy"...
Jun 08th 2021

Brooklyn posted the best offensive rating in NBA history this season.
Jun 08th 2021

      taking DJ out of the rotation in favor of Blake / Clax has worked
Jun 08th 2021
121
      And honestly, it was an insanely obvious choice from the jump, lol.
Jun 08th 2021
122
      Exactly!
Jun 08th 2021
125
      I think it will be matchup dictated, against some teams they may need DJ
Jun 08th 2021
124
           DJ's been their worst interior defending big this year, though.
Jun 08th 2021

                we'll see.

                                         How is that Lakers and Lebron L working out for you?

DeAndre Hunter done. Tough break for the Hawks.
Jun 09th 2021

Welp. That fucks things up for them. They needed him or Cam.
Jun 09th 2021

While I think they can win without Hunter/Cam…it’ll be harder.

In the next few years teams will start to rough him up like they did curry

Trae’s floaters are fun to watch and look effortless. But I also remember 2013ish, early sky- fucking Steph make ridiculous shots in the paint look regular.

He’ll need to bulk up like steph did eventually. For now it’s fun as shit tho. Speaking of FUN, Trae doesn’t seem to have the fun ball tendencies that Steph to this day struggles eith.

i'm all about going above and beyond for covid safety but how hard is it to require vaccination documentation and opening it up more? i know the state has regulations in place but them shits are not being followed anywhere right now. la is open open.

also, la/california is doing well with the covid statistics. probably better than a lot of these cities opening up their stadiums. no one feels bad for this clippers team but they're definitely not getting the benefit if a gm 7 home court advantage right now obviously.

...they’re being so careful. The official “opening up” date for the whole state was supposed to be June 15, but now it looks like Newsom is possibly delaying it. He’s dealing with what’s very likely a doomed recall effort, but he’s being very careful to not give his opponents any legit ammo.

and opening it up more.

i know the knicks had vaccination only sections and apparently if they made it to round two everyone in the stadium would have to show proof of being vaxxed.

this isn't georgia or utah or some place where people would riot if they had to show proof of vaccination.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Somebody referred to Luka haters on OKS

I guessed that’s a reference to me

To clarify...my issue is with the media trying to crown Dude MVP before the season started

He was shooting +20% from 3 for a couple of months
...and he still hasn’t shown up vs the 6ers...

I think he’s great
Maybe one day he call fulfill the prophecy
But damn, they want this dude to be the face of the league so bad...
...just let these young guns play...
One of them will separate from the pack eventually
But for now, it’s entertaining to watch all of them...why isn’t that enough?

19. "Literally every season begins with media protections of what to expect"
In response to Reply # 16


  

          

"Upcoming NBA Season Preview" is and enjoyable worthwhile aspect of the game.

"Who do you expect to take that leap to the next level" is a perfectly reasonable and valid question to tackle at the start of any nba season.

Luka is one of the players who looked poised to take such a leap. His second year stats were fucking bonkers. Luka plays for the Mavs.

If "entertaining just to watch them" were enough for you, you wouldn't be be on a niche section of a nichressage baord discussing sports at all.

You wouldn't be reading articles or watching commentary or discussing it yourself.

Basically, your issue, as expressed, is with the part of sports that actually allows professional sports to thrive: passionate fandom and media.

So maybe it's time for you to logoff, since you seem to think it's enough to just watch and be entertained,thus no reason for you to be here spitting ass backward opinions.

Not...gonna take a leap...they were making the statement
Luka WILL be this year’s MVP
Almost to a man...and you have to wonder why
Especially considering he obviously came in to the year out of shape and shooting dog$hit
Sure...preseason predictions aren’t expected to hit errytime
But this felt different
Felt forced
Agenda
Look at the league right now...there’s a bunch of young guns
Not one of the other young guns was even considered
Somehow everyone decided, not only is he leader of the pack, but he’s better than every player in the league
...because he balled out vs a sus LAC’s team...?
It felt and looked different than a preseason preview of the upcoming season
They tried to crown dude
Let him earn it.

Luka put up MVP numbers..his team aint have the success needed to support the case though.

But luka's numbers were there.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

60. "Consensus? Crown? Sources, please. "
In response to Reply # 40


  

          

I need articles and names. Maybe I'm wrong.

Maybe this wasn't the usual preseason speculation we always get, every single year, since forever, about everything from rookie of the year to the best team to, yes, league MVP.

Maybe everyone, everywhere said that he will be the MVP and crowned him as such.

Because all season long, I've seen Brawn, 'Yannis, and Harden. I recall a particular top five list that left off KD, due to people not knowing what to expect due to his injury.

Can you show me the consensus crowning of Luka as MVP? I'm happy to eat my words when I'm proven wrong.

But as it stands, I don't see or recall that at all.

Luka's having an absolutely insane start to his career, and warrants all the attention he's getting for it. It's not like he's out here doing Ja Morant numbers (very good for a second year player) and people are talking about him like the GOAT.

But in terms of his personal stats, he's in rare company.

Second time before he turns 23. And he led the Mavs to a first place finish in their division. And they damn near knocked off a Clippers team that had the second highest Vegas odd of winning the Finals despite a wild talent disparity.

a Great White Hope.

And white nba fans in general...a few on here...are proof that they desperately want it too. Its fascinating and sad to watch.


Luka is nice- I don't think anyone would say otherwise.


But the idea that he is nicer than guys like Dame, etc? FOH


Its that curve. The white boy curve.


He should be roasted for his FT shooting...yet he isn't. If he wasn't white? He'd be ROASTED.


He was labeled an early favorite for MVP based on...what? If he wasn't white? Nah.


Their game 5 win? They didn't win because of dude down the stretch, they won in spite of him. He was not good those last few minutes...the Clips were in too deep of a hole.

But he gets praised and complimented for "facilitating"


Again, Luka is nice.


But cmon. This is the league, the media, and white nba fans anxious for a new hero.


Its not hard to see.


Put a lot of really good guys on that Mavs team in that system, they put up similar numbers.

Would they get the love? Cmon.

I’ve never seen a player so disrespectfully overlooked
This dude balled the f out this year
Best player on the best team
Hadn’t heard his name in the media’s MVP convo...all year
IMO, one of the more glaring snubs I think I’ve ever seen
MVP typically goes to the best player on the best team
He took THAT leap this year
He’s got that dawg in him, ultra-competitive, mamba mentality
Improves every year
I’m having a hard time understanding why he doesn’t get the same hype as Luka?
Young player
Western conference team
Not a major market

45. "Not too hard to explain."
In response to Reply # 39


  

          

He did 26/4/5 on 44% shooting. 3.5 box plus minus, 2.5 VORP.
Luka did 28/8/9 on 48% shooting. 6.7 box plus minus, 5.0 VORP.

Also, Donovan's three best teammates are a Defensive Player of the Year/All-NBA big man, an All-Star PG, and the Sixth Man of the Year. Luka's best teammates are Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr., and... Dorian Finney-Smith, I guess?

So it's not much of a surprise that Luka has more hype than Mitchell. Mitchell is the best player on a very, very good roster. Luka's currently a one-man team-- yet he's still hyper-efficient and still ultra-conducive to winning.

They aren’t that far apart to rationalize the disparity in coverage

You think DMitch couldn’t do bigger numbers on a worse team?

One of the replies asked that question...and it’s an easy answer

JWill on this morning...talking about...this is the face of the NBA

Bet that tune changes by the end of the playoffs...

Point being, these other dudes are earning it
DMitch...best team in the league
Joker...MVP, WCF
JT...ECF
Trae...playoff W
etc...

But they crowning this dude...for 2 first round exits

Just saying, I’ve seen other so called nexts dragged for less

He’s earned praise...but...
Next
Face of the league
GOAT trajectory
...that’s too much...

Give some of that shine to other guys

Wouldn’t it be better for the league if all these young guys were great, competed against each other for careers, etc...?

Why force the Luka narrative?

League’s in great hands for the Bron handoff...just let it happen.

53. "It's because he plays with a soon-to-be four-time All-NBA teammate."
In response to Reply # 49


  

          

One could argue that Mitchell isn't the most important player on the Jazz, that their most important player is Gobert.

Look at that Jazz roster. Royce O'Neal is a genuinely good individual defender. Conley is smart but he's definitely gotten slower with age and isn't really the individual defender he was in his mid-20s. But outside of that? Mitchell is bad on defense. Clarkson is famously bad on defense. Bogdanovic is terrible on defense. Niang is bad on defense. I can try to be generous to Ingles and say he plays smart considering he's one of the slower players in the NBA, but he is also bad on defense. So you have five bad defenders and a sixth defender who's savvy buy aging... yet this defense is basically top 3 every season. That's how insanely good Gobert is.

And the on/off numbers for Gobert are *nuts.* When Gobert's on the court, they're a +16.6. When he's off the court, they're a -2.5. That's an over-19 point swing in the team's quality depending on if Gobert is playing or not! I wouldn't be surprised, without looking, if that's the biggest swing in the NBA. Which is crazy... until you consider Gobert led the NBA in rebounds, led the NBA in blocks, and led the league in FG% too for good measure.

Now, do I think Mitchell is probably their most important player *in the playoffs*? Absolutely. Because big men get stretched out in today's NBA in the playoffs, and while Rudy is fucking brilliant on defense, he has limitations in efficacy away from the rim. If they play Denver, for instance, Jokic will just sit on the perimeter and pop 3s all day-- and if Gobert goes out there to guard him, Jokic will hit cutting wings for layups all day. So they need their offense to carry a heavier load in the playoffs, and that's definitely where they need Mitchell to be The Guy, because perimeter creation in the playoffs is the absolute name of the game.

But it's going to be hard for Donovan Mitchell to be viewed as an All-NBA caliber player, an MVP caliber player, as long as people aren't sure if he's the Jazz's most important player. That's why people always put him behind the Lukas, the Tatums, the Traes imo-- because those guys are indisputably the most important players when it comes to their teams winning. I'm not saying this argument is fair to Mitchell, but imo this is why he tends to be viewed as a slight tier below. It's the same with Jamal Murray playing with Jokic tbh.

This is a possibility. If I'm not mistaken, Porzingis has had surgeries on his screwed up knee twice since he was traded to the Mavs. This is in addition to his injury issues while he was on the Knicks.

The number of 6'10 and up guys who take 4+ 3s a game has doubled in the last four seasons-- and I expect it to easily double in the next four seasons with guys like Holmgren, Banchero, Baldwin, etc. on the way. More and more, young bigs understand the value of their ability to pick-and-pop and spread the floor offensively. The thing that made Zingis seem like a unicorn in 2015-- a big guy who can step out and make 3s at a reasonable volume and rate-- is now something that over half the teams in the NBA have, more or less.

Zingis was a fine defender at the rim in New York, and while he was never laterally quick, he was definitely quicker than he is now, a.k.a. he wasn't disastrously slow. So the injuries definitely played a role. But I'm also not convinced that paying Zingis that much was wise when his main special skill was becoming increasing prevalent in young bigs and incoming prospect bigs.

Strictly shooting 3's wasn't what made Porzingis unique. Before the injuries and surgeries accumulated in his short career, he was also able to use his relative speed for someone that's 7'4" to go to drive to the hole or create his own offense in the mid range with a combination with speed/footwork. That is largely gone now since it appears he's just content for whatever reasons to shoot long range shots. IMO, it makes sense that the injuries and surgeries would take away some of his speed since he's a fairly large dude, but I don't watch the Mavs with that much consistency, so I could be wrong in that regard.

55. "Yeah, he's got no speed now. He's stiff as a board."
In response to Reply # 51


  

          

Zingis is more or less still as efficient a shooter as he was in New York. A little less efficient from mid-range, much more efficient at the rim, shooting the same from 3. And he's creating for himself a little less, but that's largely due to Luka getting him open looks inside so frequently-- with the Knicks, 64% of his 2s were assisted and nearly 99% of his 3s were assisted, while in Dallas, 72% of his 2s are assisted and 97% of his 3s are assisted. So outside of playing at the rim more and shooting off the bounce in the mid-range a little less, not much has changed in terms of his relative offensive efficiency imo, even without the speed, just because he can straight up shoot over most people. If anything, Luka's made his life a little easier getting open shots, so they probably wish his 3P% off the catch (38%) was higher.

The problem isn't his offense as much as it is his defense, that's where the lack of speed is really glaring. He's not even rotating over to protect the rim as efficiently. The Mavs don't need Knicks Zingis on offense, but they badly needed Knicks Zingis on defense-- namely, a guy who is okay for his size on switches and is a very competent rim protector. Now, he's appalling on defense, a total liability to the point where I don't know what they can do with him. They need his 20 points a game, but he also has the worst defensive on-off numbers of any of their major contributors by a lot, to the point the Mavs were a notably better team by the numbers when he wasn't on the floor. (Meanwhile, his last two years on the Knicks, they were a much *worse* defensive unit without Porzingis on the floor by the numbers.)

So really, they don't need much from Zingis on offense beyond what they have-- and the things they need offensively from him wouldn't even really be helped by added mobility. He just needs to shoot off the catch at a slightly higher percentage to help spread the floor. But man, they could *really* use his Knicks mobility on the defensive end. So the injuries affected that, for sure.

But going back to the original point, even if Zingis was a Knicks-level competent defender, they paid him the same amount that, like, Minnesota paid Karl Anthony-Towns and Phoenix paid Devin Booker. Denver paid less for Jamal Murray, Boston paid less for Jaylen Brown. If you're paying that for Zingis, you have to think he's the second best player on a title contender at minimum... and they paid him that *after* he sat out for a year due to ACL surgery. That is... a *lot* of faith.

dallas isnt some big name market

the lack of state income tax is cool but you saw how long it took for him to get dirk help? and that was a rag tag bunch of once upon a time all-stars and has-beens and a herculean effort from dirk

47. "To be fair, Dallas is the fifth biggest market. "
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

And Cuban is clearly willing to spend.

That said, you are correct that it generally hasn't had the sort of appeal that smaller markets like Boston or Miami have had.

That said again, they've never had a guy this good at this young. Wouldn't surprise me if, like Jrue heading to Milwaukee (and Bogdanovic trying to go to Milwaukee), having a major MVP candidate not even in his prime yet attracts the sorts of talent that helps a young stud bring in titles.

Maybe not a super team... but it also wouldn't surprise me if the next super teams aren't built around Giannis, Jokic, Luka, etc. These guys who are 26 and under but already playing at MVP/All-NBA first team levels. Especially Luka, being only 22.

In response to Reply # 0


          

Luka was insane. You can really tell that he turned pro at like 14/15. Always composed like a veteran; well beyond his years. Canelo was like that as well. When he was 19 he was outclassing world-class fighters - product of turning pro as a teen with deep experience at very young age.

Kawhi really bossed up. Best he's ever played offensively. Dallas really had a great chance at closing out the series in Game 6. They were up late and playing well - but Kawhi went off late. That saved the series for Clippers.

saw it in 2019 playoffs... when he can, he will dominate a game. If not for some late game BS w/the Warriors, that series would have been done in 5 with Kawhi at the helm

59. "Luka’s lack of speed or pace hurts him tremendously late in"
In response to Reply # 0
Mon Jun-07-21 01:48 PM by allStah

          

games as the defense against him becomes faster and more aggressive.

Even Bird played a lot faster, or sped up his play against the Lakers in order
to be able to match their speed. Also, Jokic is a lot quicker than Luka with the ball
as a facilitator and scorer. Jokic is sneaky quick.

Luka just seems like he is stuck in quicksand at times when he is getting
into the offense, and on defense he is basically not even there because he
is too slow to react.

So the question is being asked should Luka be the primary ball handler?

Would he be better at the 2 or 3, especially in the second half of games,
and let a quicker, faster player run the point?

I’m not really a fan of his game. I’m more of Jokic guy, so there is some bias there.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

He needs to get happy fast. The only time the word "star" appears next to Porzingis these days is in the phrase "startlingly slow."

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/31579933/nba-playoffs-2021-luka-doncic-superstar-ascent-created-table-dallas-mavericks

"Then there are questions about the chemistry between Doncic and Porzingis. The Mavs' franchise cornerstones admittedly aren't friends, a distant dynamic that team owner Mark Cuban has compared to the early stages of the partnership between Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry, which ultimately produced two NBA Finals appearances and a championship.

But Porzingis has been frustrated, often feeling more like an afterthought than a co-star as Doncic dominates the ball and the spotlight, sources told ESPN. Porzingis frequently made thinly veiled references during his postgame media availabilities, such as saying the "ball actually moved tonight" after high-scoring performances or stating that the offense didn't involve him on low-scoring nights.

"It's just the plays we were running," Porzingis said after an April 7 loss to the last-place Houston Rockets when asked why he didn't get any shots in the fourth quarter despite scoring 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting in the game. After a pause, he added: "Happened before also.""

The Knicks aren’t all that better. They benefited from other teams being
plagued with injuries and missing players. Atlanta exposed all that.
They have zero offense. ...That’s not coach of the year worthy. That
Is more like honorable mention worthy.

Suns went from not making the POs to having the second best
record in the NBA, and they have an opportunity to go all the way
to the finals. They are great on both sides of the ball.

Monty Williams should have gotten it....or even Nate Mcmillian.
He got that offense clicking ,and he has improved Trae Young’s ability

of a five year deal, so an extension probably won't happen until year four. I would hope this COTY award will be a long distant memory by then in terms of evaluating Thibs and giving him a contract extension.

Secondly, the way things can quickly go left in NYC, this award could be more of a liability than an asset in terms of Thibs staying in NYC for the long term.

I wasn't a fan of him before the season started, but Thibs succeeding means the Knicks succeeding, so in the short term, I don't want him to go, at least not yet.

Him playing Randle and Barrett for the long playing times like he did during the regular season will eventually hurt the Knicks though, if that's what you're referring to in terms of wanting him to go.

in principle. i like all of the big 3 and harden is my favorite player. i hope harden gets a ring so folks will stop talking about him derisively. generally i agree that superteams aren't great for the league. i remember being sick of the warriors and their fans even when i was barely paying attention to basketball

however

right now the nets are "merely" a very good playoff team, especially in the east. it's "only" 2 superstars and a bunch of roleplayers, one of which is an aging ex-superstar. they don't even have their best defender in jeff green. they're winning mostly because they had an adverse regular season where their starting lineups were constantly an unknown. they were frequently giving away big leads and having to fight to get them back, generally with only 1 or 2 of the big 3 on the court. they came back from 20 point deficits 4 times this season and if i'm not mistaken 0 of those games were with all 3 superstars playing. they built a lot of chemistry and developed a strong resilient spirit during those games. that's why they are kicking the shit out of an opponent with an about equal offense and a superior defense

They had a resilient spirit and were fun before they got the big three and the few players BKN still has carried it over. Joey Buckets out there looking like he got through a swordfight with all the red lashes on him during the regular season even.

how is it that the Bucks got close to nada in the paint in game two? you telling me Durant leading the team offensively as well as shutting down Brook in the post? How many times the bucks got the ball poked out on a drive?

Clax going out of his way to communicate when there is an open man on the perimeter

Shamet, Brown, James, all had really key buckets

And yeah Griffin been playing inspired ball, bringing veteran savvy and experience. I'm loving that he is getting to prove doubters wrong (though I agree he was bullshitting in Detroit)

123. "This is a good matchup for Blake."
In response to Reply # 117


  

          

He doesn't have to play any physical defense down low or fight over the tops of screens outside. He's just sagging back and letting Giannis have several feet of space when Giannis is floating around the perimeter or the free throw line.

Add to that that Blake is (and has been) a better passing big man than most of the bigs in the NBA, and he can really supercharge the Nets offense even when he's not doing the scoring just by nature of his really smart ball movement.

much and his team is looking good.

He avg'd 10 and 5 on < 50% shooting with Brooklyn during the reg seas and that's even with the big 3 constantly missing games.

in the playoffs he's averaging 7 and 6. If he was on portland or dallas or the knicks or some other team that got sent home, you would be talking bout how washed he is.

Dude has a lot of miles on him. He’s in his 13th season. Plus, he’s had knee problems, since Oklahoma. He was hurt, that last year, in Detroit. He actually played really well, when he got there. Casey had him initiating offense, he was handling the ball, had a nice little outside shot going. He’s clearly not washed…but people acting like he’s Clipper, dunking on Mosgov Blake, are being disingenuous.

100. "Did you watch the last two Nets / Bucks games played @ Bucks?"
In response to Reply # 77
Tue Jun-08-21 07:37 AM by T Reynolds

  

          

Both were incredibly interesting games that were close, and the Nets lost both.

The 'super team' thing is not an issue when you consider how well the Nets bench and role players played.

Again, the Bucks look like TRASH but I doubt they will fold for a third game (and third year) straight. I could be wrong, but they are way more capable than they are showing and that has zero to do with Kyrie and KD playing on the same squad.

Giannis is still really effective going to the rim, but the rest of the Bucks ain't doing shit! It's embarrassing how badly they're shooting the ball. Not even getting to the line, all they're doing is missing jumpers.

Game 1 they were

45/101 FG (29/77 without Giannis' numbers)
6/30 3PT (4/25)
11/19 FT (11/16)


Game 2

37/84 FG (28/69 without Giannis' numbers)
8/27 3PT (8/24)
4/9 FT (2/2)

That shit just ain't gonna cut it. I can live with Giannis going 0-3 from three, but the rest of you fucks cannot go 4-25. Can't live with only 1 person beside Giannis going to the line 1 time. The fuck.

season guy.”

Him (2003), Dream, and Dirk are the only guys in the past 30+ years to win a title w/o a dominant teammate. Not at all saying they’re the best, but they’re in unique company.

The same 2000 team that destroyed the Knicks in ‘99 couldn’t make it out of the first round the next year. Wonder why? Timmay got injured right before the playoffs. Before Manu and TP developed into stars (which didn’t happen til the mid 2000s), the Spurs were garbage w/o Duncan. He played considerably more minutes than everyone else and was relied upon the shoulder more of a load than any of his teammates by a considerable margin. His numbers always went up in the postseason. Hence him being the exact opposite of what you’re trying to falsely claim he is. Can’t believe you’re still holding on to all that hate after so many years.

I mean, that's a long standing pattern with you.

>But thank you for reaching and trying to pull the race

As if on cue, you just said "trying to pull the race card".

You've also been a little coy about identifying your race, from what I recall. Even if you're not white, you hold a lot of positions that correspond with predominantly white perspectives.

It comes up because it's glaring.

In response to Reply # 108


          

Boston exposed them with that one win. They couldn’t stop Tatum,
and if Brown were there that series would have been different.

The Bucks are just limited offensively, and don’t have the high offensive
talent that is necessary to compete with Brooklyn. You have to be able
to score in different ways to compete against Brooklyn, and have a high BB
IQ.

I think a team like ATL can surprise them...they have highly skilled offensive players
who can get buckets. Or the Clippers..

So I think ATL/ Clippers can beat them...especially with no Harden.

In response to Reply # 110


  

          

So as one of the biggest believers in Atlanta on this board, and as the guy who said in a previous post, before the Knicks series was over, that I felt Atlanta would beat a fully healthy Philadelphia... I don't think Atlanta has a chance if their plan is simply to outscore Brooklyn. Especially since Atlanta defensively is the same as Brooklyn, and I'd argue worse than Brooklyn because so many of Brooklyn's defensive deficiencies during the season were simply due to not giving a shit.

It'd be an *insanely* fun series, though. And I think it'll happen. But yeah, I'd absolutely put money on Brooklyn in that series.

In response to Reply # 121


  

          

They're all about ball movement and shiftiness and putting players on the floor to help space for the stars, and Jordan is... just none of those things, lol. He put up the worst on-off numbers on the team this year by a pretty sizable margin.

>margin.

Fans have been clamoring for Clax all season. He's a great perimeter defender.

It's fun watching 10 lobs per game but DJ throws off the defensive cohesion (blake stays holding his hands up in confusion after a score off penetration too but he's been hustling at least lol), with the smaller unit they've been able to clog the Bucks up before they can dump down to Brook or penetrate effectively.

and the ball movement offensively is next level. Would be much more fun to watch if Bucks could answer offensively

132. "DJ's been their worst interior defending big this year, though."
In response to Reply # 124


  

          

By the On/Off numbers, no player on the Nets affected their defense negatively more than DJ this year. Which, considering their roster, is *really* saying something, lol.

He doesn't even really protect the rim the best. Claxton posts a higher block rate, and the team as a whole block a higher percentage of shots with DJ on the bench.

He's just not the guy he used to be. Like, unless they face a team with a slow big man who only plays at the rim, I don't know how DJ helps... and even then, I'd rather play Claxton.

In response to Reply # 120


          

Atl is not the Bucks. They have some walking buckets.

And Trae will put penetrating pressure on their interior defense,
and Capela will dominate the board and block shots.

Styles make fights...and ATL has the style and coaching to make it a fight.

And we see this all the time ,a so called sure shot to win the title.

Brooklyn faced a Boston team without their second best player.

And they are facing a limited Milwaukee team.

I’m saying without Harden, Atl will put up a fight if they can
get past philly. They got bigs, shooters, defense, and outstanding
coaching.

I just think ATL and the Clippers have the personnel that can match up.

I have no problem with fading the public.

"No matter how you want to incorrectly describe it. Two of those players are volume chuckers, with zero knowledge of playing defense. Basketball is a two way effort. Also take a trip down basketball history.

I still don’t put them ahead of Milwaukee, Philly or Boston, because of their lack of defense.

But go ahead and hype this shit up."

Turns out I rather correctly described it - and you ate up another epic L.

159. "What you'll do is move the goalpost, like always"
In response to Reply # 156


  

          

You'll pretend you've won by moving a goalpost.

You'll dance around and make the same posthoc rationalizations you always do, in order to delude yourself that you've "won".

Someone will point out exactly why you're wrong, and you'll do the equivilant of plugging your ears and shouting "LALALALALLALALA"

In the process, you'll say some shit that sounds like it was ghost written by the sort of white republican dude who has a last name for a first name.

Someone will call you out on it, and as if entirely oblivious to the point, you'll talk about a "race card" being played.

Some people will attempt to engage you with sincerity.
Other people will wonder why they bother.

Others will mock you mercilessly for your absurdity.

Some will react with a combination of the aforementioned, and you'll pretend that they just can't debate your superior intellect with reason and civility.

Then you'll get incredibly loud and wrong again, Groundhog's Day will proceed as always.

In response to Reply # 161


  

          

I wrote ten concise sentences, clearly formatted and everything.

Twenty seconds of reading, tops.

That's hardly a "buffet". I've already pointed out the way you respond when someone clearly shows that you're wrong, or otherwise takes you to task.

I laid out your entire gimmick, chapter and verse, with clarity, detail and accuracy.

Of course you'll deflect to word count, despite there not being all that many words.

Also, the term you're looking for- and incorrectly, clumsily trying to apply- is "word salad".

Again- there's a reason you don't actually address the content of those words.

Everything I said is specific, detailed and accurate representation of a significant portion of your interactions.

But it's easier to make these dumb, blanket dismissals than it is to address that.

those teams ahead at that time had nothing to do with the PO series.

You might be right...because Giannis is a DPOTY...and KD giving him work

Only questions remain are health

I believe they will need Harden in the ECF/Finals

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Blake has a certain skillset that helps BK's offense flow much more smoothly, but it's not as though he's doing Prime Blake Griffin work out there.

He's providing valuable passing and ball movement, and doesn't overplay Giannis on the perimeter.

He's a good role player doing just the right things his team needs from him.

People see highlights and the reductionist comments about how he was faking it in Detroit, and assume that's the case.

He's clearly a shell of the guy who took the league by storm way back when. It's just that that shell was a perfect match for the team around him.

Its called effort. Yes he is doing what they ask of him.

Keep playing dumb though

147. "Of course, but there's a big difference between that and "he's back!""
In response to Reply # 141


  

          

I mean, two seasons ago, he put up 25-8-5, and he gritted it out through a knee injury in a playoff series just to try to throw a team on his hobbled back. Again, that was *two years ago.* Since arriving in Brooklyn, he's averaging 10-5-2.

It's clear he was saving at least some gas in the tank from 2020 on-- considering he can't keep hurting his knees on losing teams if he wishes to remain in the league, that's not a big surprise. So I'm also not terribly surprised that he can still unleash the occasional dunk that reminds you, "oh yeah, he's Blake Griffin." He's just transformed into Glue Guy Griffin, a guy too washed to carry even a bad NBA team, but not nearly so washed that he can't be a valuable fourth best player on a contender.

(Aldridge would fall into this category too imo-- imagine this team with him on the roster also!)

he was HURT in Detroit….a lot. He had a knee surgery as recently as Jan of last year. He tried, in Detroit. I watched a lot of their games, because he was there. Casey basically said before the season, they were going to expand his game out to the three point line. He’s very skilled. Now he’s healthy(er) and a time or two he can bang one, but this is not Lob City Blake out there.

against the Suns. Nuggets had the lead going into the half, but
fell off the map in the second half. Makes sense now.

He is still expected to play tomorrow, but for a young player, who has had microdiscectomy surgery, that has to be very concerning

He is the second best player on the floor for denver, and he is 20 years old.

If Jokic pulls this series off, shitttt....Best international player on the planet.

He should get more prime time announcing gigs for TNT. He isn't too awkward, doesn't try to force any corny jokes during the game, and isn't prone too making gaffs or mistakes in his basketball observations.

Hopefully he'll take the spot Chris Webber left with TNT dismissing him. If I'm not mistaken, normally Webber or Reggie Miller normally got the prime time announcing gigs for TNT games in the past.

They are not there to overly praise or champion players. They stick to the
fundamentals of the game when it comes to analyzing, and they don’t
over-exaggerate the action.

Also, Grant Hill has grown on me. I used to think he was a soft analyst,
because of how he commentated college games. He is totally different
when covering NBA basketball. He goes in, so maybe he doesn’t have
the same type of analytical freedom when covering the NCAA for CBS.


Reggie is still the man, though. He rarely does the early games. He usually
does the second game, and is usually the one on the Clipper/Lakers games.

He should be on the tonight’s Clipper

going, because ATL went up by 1.

He hasn’t really been getting tick, and only played 6 mins I believe in the
last game. He drops 14 points and Philly goes on 24-3 run.

Craziest shit I have ever seen.

AtL players were like WTF?

Kenny Anderson Rod Strickland Terrell Brandon Sam Cassell or any of those so called "second tier" pgs would have put up John Stockton numbers if they played alongside a top 5 HOF PF for damn near two decades in the same PnR

He’s been voted an all-star by the fans twice

188. "While I think they can win without Hunter/Cam…it’ll be harder."
In response to Reply # 185


  

          

I can count on Trae, Bogie, Collins, and Capela to do what they do… but Trae and Bogie can’t defend, and Capela can’t do EVERYTHING defensively. They need some supporting piece to either make some capable defensive rotations/stops or to go fucking nuclear on offense to make up for the lack of versatility defensively in these lineups.

Plus, while Cam’s been improving, DeAndre in particular just has a knack for making the right play and avoiding mistakes. His IQ is just so high— he’s the best possible fifth guy in your lineup, really. So losing him and replacing his minutes with a Solomon Hill or something… it sounds dumb to say “losing a fifth guy makes it hard to win!” but in a series that’s fairly evenly matched, it really does make a difference.

and Reddish for most of the last two months of the season,
and kept on rolling. So they know how to play without him.

Hill, Snell, Heurter all stepped up in his absence last time. They will
have to do it again. However, they can’t afford anymore injuries.

Even leaving that play aside, like… it’s so obvious that he’s DPOY. They’re an elite defense…. but of their top eight players, they have four bad defenders, two smart but slow defenders, O’Neal… and Gobert. They’re elite because no other big man can clean up as well as he can at the rim. It’s crazy how terrific he is at the rim.

I bought into the story that moving him to a better team, w/better teammates around him and playing meaningful games would be a boost for him. It's looking like he pretty much is what his is - just pretty ok.

this clip of him saying he doesn't watch other teams' games and leaves his phone in the other room is pretty telling because i'm sure most of the messages he gets are from his coaches and teammates saying, "hey watch this team we're going to play. you need to learn how to beat their defense and stop their offense"

Bucks can get whatever they want in the paint. We saw it in the first half
of the first game.

They go up by 20 in the first quarter by attacking the rim, and then
they start taking jumpers in the second quarter and blow a big lead

It’s the dumbest shit ever.

At least Bud was smart to keep the ball in middleton’s hand
going down the stretch.

But with better coaching, Bucks could kill the nets without Harden.

Nets are too small in the paint,,,just keep attacking.

Those Silly ass 3 point shots drive me crazy.

since coming back from injury is he playing on fresh legs.

He missed most of the regular half of the season, so this is
like the beginning of the season for him. That dude is going
to be on max power for the entire playoffs.

Clippers went 7 games in the series against Dallas, and Kawhi looks
tired, and it’s going to take another huge effort from him to get the
clippers back into the series....

and the PO last season was in a bubble, everybody was prolific.

I’m not taking away from his greatness. I’m just saying he even has
MORE bounce than others. Compared to most of the top players in the
POs, he has the fresher legs....even more than his own teammates. And
it’s going to give him an advantage as the POs roll on.

I’m pro Mitchell, always have been.

He is fully healthy.

Harden doesn’t apply, because his hamstring never truly healed...which
Is why he is out again....he isn’t healthy. Hamstring issue is a different
beast. If Harden was fully healthy, having fresh legs would be an advantage.

In response to Reply # 251


  

          

76ers have been very locked in these past 6 quarters. They’ve been limiting the careless turnovers and spreading the ball around nicely on offense. As long as Embiid stays healthy and they get consistent play from Toni, Seth Curry, Simmons, and at least one guard (Korkmaz, Shake, Thybulle) they’ll be fine. Should probably win 4 straight, but I can see this going 6 games.

Porter is playing injured.
Murrary is injured
Dozier is injured
And Barton just came back

He is playing with Campazzo and Austin Rivers as his backcourt.

He went 35-20-10 last night....He destroyed Ayton.

What was the point of even them signing McGee? another body to throw at AD?

Denver overachieved after they beat Portland without Murray

I was watching a YouTube video that was basically the last minute of every NBA Finals, since 1995.

Mario Elie

Forgot Orlando got swept

Teams were terrified of MJ with a live dribble…they constantly left good shooters wide open

MJ stealing the ball from Malone

Fuck was happening in the league that New Jersey was in the Finals, two years straight?

Man, I miss Kobe

Detroit beat the Lakers in 5?!

Sasha Vujacic

Eddie House shot a 3, with 30 seconds left and Boston up by 40, lol.

Boston was up by 40

Forgot Gary Payton won a title with the Heat.

Pop was always so gracious, win or lose.

Man, I miss Stuart Scott

Headband Bron, to no-headband Bron, back to Headband Bron

Wonder what happens if GS didn’t accept the switch and left Klay on Kyrie? They didn’t though and he put that 3 in Steph’s eye.

That Cavs team won 1 game in 2 Finals.

Steph had a shot, man…to send that thing to a Game 7. Board Man got paid.

it looked like Bol Bol was diving in the river - Action Bronson

then flashed to the bench and Gary Payton and Zo were wilding. I had a legit, hearty laugh, with myself.

Jason Frederick Kidd, probably should've gotten an MVP one of those years...

262. "most people here know I was the #1 LeBron hater up until July 1st, 2018...."
In response to Reply # 0


          

when he signed with the Lakers.

But if he had half the stuff KD has going on off the court, fake twitter accounts, social media beefs with D-list celebs, the J-Will back and forth, bodyguards running in the court during games, folks would be losing their minds.

With KD its just "oh that's KD". His basketball skills are unquestioned and he's probably back to being the best player in the world right now but how is he not the biggest cornball ever?

KD gets shitted on like crazy and is hated.

If Lebron were to do things similar to KD, people wouldn’t bat an eye....dude breached COVID protocol, and the league acknowledged it , but refused to penalize him. “ Yes, Lebron did breach protocols, but he will not be penalized.” LOL

Lebron got on national TV and stated that whoever came up with
play-in games should be fired...KD would have been fried had he said
that.

You are bugging hardcore.

KD and Kyrie are constantly demonized, and the only thing that keeps
them from being canceled are their insane basketball skills.
