Big game for James Harden to give his MVP chances some boost going up against possibly the runner up in Westbrook.

Havent gambled in quite some time, throwing down 40 on the OKC game and I think Atlanta loses, might do a live bet on that one.

Harden played well for three quarters, but I wasn't impressed with his play at all in the 4th until that last pass. I was about to curse him for passing the entire fourth period, but that was the right play, and he made it when it mattered. I thought Westbrook outplayed James tonight, but Houston got the W, and I kind of feel like that may be how the MVP ends up playing out.

Hanging on for a hard fought win. Don't like how in a tie game in the final 1:30, 3 of our last 4 shots were 3 point attempts before the Nene game winning free throws. Get the ball inside or drive to the basket. No need to Chuck up 3s in that situation. Glad we got the win. 2-0 against OKC!

Tony Parker has looked quite good lately. Pop will need to rest him a few games soon, but he's looked terrific. And that LMA guy is finally starting to come alive in a big way.

Guess I should just get used to him starting the season slowly

He's awful but I'm glad he brought up the clippers blazers series and how plumlee led them in assists because it was a point i had made to my roommate (and here) earlier this week on how differently teams will defend harden come playoffs.

But then he mentions how ingram needs to put on some weight but then goes on to say the kid can play 1 thru 4. Maybe I'm just being dense but I'm just thinking like until he matures you should wait before claiming that

Reggie has a personality. I like Brent but he's too boring and monotone. What I hate is Hubie Brown. Dude will commentate about everything. Knowledge is 100% on point but the "Now see here, LeBron is taking a deep breath of oxygen. Smart move by him to do that." Marv Albert has been terrible lately, too. Dude mixed up the score, names, and calls the entire game last night.

Embiid plays 25 minutes for a reason.. how much time does one need? Joel is OLDER than Giannis. I would not trust Embiid staying healthy when he's out on the court. People seem to forget Giannis is averaging 2 blocks and 2 steals. He's playing exceptional defense and just turned 22.. think about that.. dude is 2nd in PER, leads the team in points, blocks, steals, assists, and rebounds. If he finishes the season at the same level, he will be the first player to lead his team in every statistical category and also, be top 20 in every category. I'm not sold on Embiid. Low expectations and they are just feeding him the ball with zero gameplan.

Again he is literally bending him over in Per and defense... Dont throw out stats... If you wanna use the injury as a reasoning I agree... But its the only rebuttal you have... Statistically Embiid has been better on both ends... With less around him... While being double and triple teamed and being forced to play with the worst defender in basketball

Why is he playing less? Is he not healthy? Or the coach doesn't trust that he will stay healthy playing long minutes? And I'm sorry but Embiid's PER doesn't and will never touch Giannis is at right now. Much better defender? Any evidence to that? Just because you say it and assume people don't watch Sixers games, doesn't mean people shall take it as a fact.

Tell that to the Celtics who are currently down to us 11 at the half.

Also it shouldn't be alarming if you ever were to read anything on the Sixers and how they planned on doing this from the start. The reason he missed his second season is while he was healing from the original surgery he grew from 7' even to 7'2.5". So the growth while healing meant the healing factor could never properly because the bone was trying to grow and heal at the same time.

I rather they do this minute restrictions for the year, and be cautious, than say he's OK, play him unlimited, then he ends up like Oden. The fact that he hasn't had a single setback and has been at roughly 28 MPG for over a month is a good thing and shows that he's closer to 100% than not.

2) Godly defense... any statistic to back that up or are you just making stuff up now? Btw, Giannis is the 8th best player in terms of rim protection (allowing the 8th lowest FG%). Your boy Embiid isn't even on the list... I'll agree, he is a good defender but you need to stop saying Godly as if repetition of an opinion makes it true.
3) Yeah.. cause Giannis never gets double or triple teamed...
4) Again with the just started playing basketball.. my God, you act as if Giannis was born with a ball in his hands.
5) I'd take Giannis over Embiid because of multiple factors. Health is clearly the biggest issue and health is what ruined MANY careers.. ever heard of Oden, Roy, McGrady, Yao? Giannis is better than Embiid now and there is no way Embiid does more than any player not named LeBron.. Giannis is practically a LeBron-prototype buddy..

Him and Kawhi are the only two defenders who have legitimately made LeBron have difficulty. If Bucks can get KM back and Parker can develop into a stud, all they will need is a few more years to break LeBron's Finals streak. Scary part is he said he's been working on his shooting..

Because all the Sixers do is feed him the ball because they have no one else to give it to. I'm not denying that Embiid isn't good but let's be honest here: If he's playing 25 minutes per game, he's not worth building over. You can't be the best player on your team when you only play 25 minutes. His points are coming off attempts -- not necessarily because he's an efficient player.

Wtf does him starting at 15/16 have anything to do with this? They're both in the NBA -- that's the best experience you can get. And you're proving my point.. his LIMITED MINUTES is why he will never develop into the player you keep saying he can be. Embiid needs to P-R-O-V-E it. Giannis is P-R-O-V-I-N-G it. Giannis is defending five positions, too.. Your boy Embiid would never dare chasing PG's.. dude's legs will snap off.

That's the reason. You don't think that he wants to play 36 a game? He does. You don't think Brett Brown wants to play him 36 a game? He does. But doctors are saying for long term reasons it's best to monitor this progress.

I'm not understanding his stance of a guy can't be considered good or worth building around because doctors are protecting his long term health.

To me here's the thing:
If Embiid play 12 years after this, no one will remember he played most his 1 year on the court under a minutes restriction.

If he didn't do this and got injured again and because Oden, the Sixers as a franchise would have been ripped for not protecting him.

Have you read the comments made by your fellow Embiid fan here? He's saying Embiid right now is better than Giannis.. I'm simply stating that Embiid's flaw is that he doesn't play enough to average those numbers that he would average if he was on a PER36 basis. I can't reward a player for having great PER36 numbers when playing 25 minutes. I want Embiid to prove it. Injuries are heavy when you're dealing with players of Embiid's size. Go check my previous comments.. I was always high on Embiid but I cannot in any way see how he is over Giannis.
You should only use PER36 when the players are actually close to that benchmark. Javale McGee is averaging 25/11/3 blocks by MTM's logic... And I never said I wouldn't build over Embiid.. I'm saying that if he's playing 25 minutes per game and that is the norm, he isn't worth building over. And the doctors cleared him to play but he's still playing only 25 minutes? Sitting ten games so far? Which is about 31% of the games already? Are you guys even going to try and be unbiased?

It will be hard for the Bucks to justify a contract for him and Beasley at more than 3-4 per year. Nice role players, but types of players that you need to find in the draft and very replaceable. I see him getting around 7 in the off-season so I would personalky pass with our other commitments $$ wise

I almost come away feeling sorry for him, hes been looking to pass more than ever the last 2 years, Im thinking because he knows hes no longer the same athlete but at the same time, hes far and away among the league leaders in Iso's despite the lack of efficiency. His own coach resigns himself to looking away when Melo waves off the play. There is literally nothing to do save from making him the 6th man ala all the other outdated prototypes.

TBF, it serves him right, when star players ask out they are usually in a **** situation but Melo just wanted to get to the Knicks regardless of the cost so as the expression goes, you reap what you sow. Dude threw away his legacy

The Knicks need a pass first PG for Melo and KP to both get the amount of shots needed for both. Rose isn't the answer, a Rondo/Rubio type of PG is what they need for Melo and KP to work.

You know....I wonder if he would be willing to waive that NTC to go to the Clippers.

Because if I were the Clips I would come up with a way to put contracts and players together to keep CP3, Blake, possibly DeAndre to get Melo. Worst case you do a Blake for Melo swap.

What was scary about that end, was the defender gave him so much space daring him to shoot, and he didn't even try. He had a good game, but man that wasn't that efficient and the fear of taking the jumper should worry some people.

I'd agree, KD's will always be there. And when Curry really gets going and the collapsing begins, that's when the others will make them pay. Not sure where they'll land on this though.
