Not so fast, remember they are in the JV league. Any team not named Indy, MIA, and maybe the Bulls are likely to going on a losing streak at any given time.

If Knicks could somehow string together 4 or 5 in row they're right in the mix. Although the way they're playing that seems impossible....

I turned it on on the first bucket of an 11-0 Raps run. I don't know how the rest of the game went, but other than Curry I saw nothing out of any Golden State player. When you're missing unguarded layups, you don't deserve to win. Disappointing indeed. I had high hopes, but this team is going nowhere in the post season. Too many careless players and a weak offensive system.

The Warriors lost this game completely. They were in control going into the 4th and then they started coughing up the ball. Curry had a really bad 4th quarter, and so did Bogut. It was a very bad collapse. This was also without Terrance Ross... The Warriors can't afford to lose games like this especially playing in the Western Conference.

I didn't say New York to Toronto because of the distance, I said it because it's a flight in the middle of an East coast trip. Play drops precipitously if you run guys an entire 2nd half, especially in the middle of road trips.

Hell no, it definitely wasn't the refs. That was sloppy offense on one end well executed finishes on the other. Raps caught some breaks in missing very few jumpers in the final 6 minutes, but at least they got their shots up.

Spurs are going to beat the Mavericks. This is going to be a close game but, Parker and Duncan are not going to let win. Also with the return of Leonard they are unstoppable. Overall the Spurs have a better squad. So far the Mavericks have not been able to beat the Spurs and tonight should not be any different. I've been winning big and with consistency at vegasfearsme dot com. It has been so easy because the experts are well informed and they offer free picks every week. This is the real deal. If the Maverick's want to win Nowitzki, Ellis, and Dirk are going to need to step up. Calderon is also join to need to step up. Over all the Mavericks do have a really good offense; it's their defense that might struggle tonight against the Spurs. If they are not able to put that D on the Spurs they are going to lose. It's anyone’s game but my money is on the Spurs.

KD's ability to draw FTs is great...and also wildly annoying/zero fun to watch. But he IS Johnny No Swag, so that fits in with that.

There are two types of popular NBA players. Those who look good doing it, (Flash). And those who just win. Guys like KD, Durant.

Which is why he's the best scorer since Jordan. How many guys could look so shiitty and drop 24 after 3 quarters?

Wade, Kobe, lebron, tmac, shaq..

Basically any superstar that's able to draw 10+ FTA

People used to say that about wade, lebron.

Basically if you live at the line (usually average 10 or more fts a game), there's a perception that without that part of the game, the player would be nothing.

Again it's just a perception.

My post wasn't to slight him. He's great at it, and I've never faulted guys for being great at drawing contact, and even selling it. It's just something about how he doesn't sometimes, even without flopping, that just annoys me more than even players I dislike FAR more than him. I think his leanness and lankiness make it a bit easier for him to sell things without actually trying hard to do so.


KD's amazing. He's a generational talent and one of the best scorers we've ever seen. I wouldn't for a second say he's boring. He's a joy to watch and a walking/talking basketball clinic. I just said that one aspect of his game is a bit unsettling. THAT isn't fun to watch, regardless of who it is.

I'm happy the Knicks suck for a lot of reasons, especially in part because of the stupid word "tank". The Knicks aren't tanking...they don't even have their pick. If they did have it we'd say it honestly, but they don't. It's a perfect example how way too liberally that word is used.

well, i'm taking CP3 over any version of russy, but sure. he's a top 7ish player when healthy. i think he's amazing. nothing separates derrick rose from him, for example.

but on any other team he wouldn't be asked to check that ego. playing with kd really hurts public perception a lot of the time. i'll forever be a russy apologist because of that.

The public wants him to defer to KD. He's typically reluctant to do that. It's not really a fair position for him, but the correct thing for him to do is defer.

He didn't have to resign. If he wanted to be the MAN he could have left.
