Warriors got back to back national games. I was hoping no more national back to backs.

No idea what to expect from the Grizz this year.

Hopefully Wade is featured more with Rose out. I would assume Ball handling duties that Rose had will be split between LeBron and Wade. WE have beat the Magic the last 17 times.

Here’s my thing with “National” games on NBA TV:
1) not everyone get it.
2) there are quite a few “local feed pickups” because the games was meant to be regional in the first place.

For the NBA I think they consider ABC/ESPN/TNT National.

It's still a weak rule. :)

TNT games bug me because they seems to have Mark Jackson working most of them. I'd rather hear the local guys doing the game.

its really stupid too... i honestly dont understand our coach and front office... Tre said it last night... the way they used Embiid the first games were ****ing stupid... Our rotations are trash... We have 900 ball handlers and honestly taking the ball out of simmons hands when he is by far playing the best for our team.

Cavs lack effort a lot of the time which is kind of odd. Yea you're going to be in the Finals but at least try to get things clicking from the start and hit the ground running.

Their new defensive schemes seem pretty bad to me. Way too much switching, guys confused a lot of the time.

They aren't using Wade right, not getting the best out of him.

Lue sits there majority of the time not even coaching, not sure he's that good of a coach from what I've seen.

i figured they would win 70 plus but yea believe it or not these losses are better for them... Not kidding. This means they wont try for some stupid regular season record and thus relax the final few weeks and go into the playoffs fresh etc...

I can't think of a more staunch opponent to their prior ownership. I can't think of a guy that wanted Monta off the team or who was more happy when the Bogut trade went down. Continuing to start Drayomond over All Star D Lee? SIGN. ME. UP. On Curry from Day 1 as a Superstar prospect when doubt rained in louder than a C-5 Hurricane? OH hey, Tredigs again. Lol. Now, it's time to accept that the flowers can't bloom forever and the team needs to let go of a marquee. I am very confident that Bob is smart enough to know that that player is Klay.

The Jazz lack go-to scorers, which is why losing Hayward was such a blow. They're still an above .500 team.

Completely missed that 'Bron and the Cavs got their **** pushed in by Magic tonight for a >20 point loss. That's embarrassing.

I'm getting worried about what I'm seeing for the Nuggets offense. I know it's two games in but this is not a good sign. They just don't look the same. Too many players are trying to iso and there's not enough ball movement. They're easy to defend that way and they're very lucky that the Kings are a bad team.

Jokic took 3 shots today. 8 players on the team took more shots than him. He's been very passive. He needs to pick it up.

Ah gotchya. 2-11 from the field + 7 turnovers from the highest volume shooter/handler of the past half decade is perfectly normal. Nothing to see here. Noted.


I'm thinking in my head if Westbrook has ever taken <11 attempts from the field in the last 7 years, despite playing the majority alongside one of the greatest scorers in NBA history.

If Embiid is healthy he is a MONSTER, and I like Ben a lot if in the right environment. Fultz is OK (and a potentially viable starter at the very least) but I will say that I think Brown is NOT thier guy, and that every year they spend with him is a fail. That team has so much potential, and I can't think of many worse coaches for them to reach it sadly.

Ben simmons in the first was hot... he took him out in the 2nd and brought him back in with 2 minutes and 46 seconds left lol... I just dont get it... On top of that he seems really keen on getting our bench bench guys time just because over our starters or our actual bench guys.. He then puts a lineup out of 3 ball handlers and 2 shooters.... I just cant figure out what he is doing or if he is in over his head or if he is just trying to figure **** out early... I get no embiid tonight but tonight loss was 100 percent on his **** rotations and the team failing 900 times.. it wasnt the refs... it was the flat out undiscipline of the sixers and that falls on the coaching.

Giannis? Usually you post the players name you want to slob all over.


It happened 8 times last year where a player scored 40 and shot 70% or better. 6 of those games were wins for the players team (Giannis was a 0 +/- btw).

Kat did it with a 21 rebound game and 77.3% shooting
Lebron did it with 10 assists and 9 boards
Durant did it with 81.3% shooting (5 of 7 on 3's)


It happens, actually fairly often, especially in the higher scoring era we have the league in now.
Vucevic did it 2 days ago.

his team lost... against the nets :shrug:

you must have missed the part where i said and gets the win... dude did something Bron/Durant did with less help... Not a Giannis guy at all either but what he did tonight was ridiculous.

So you didnt read the post... Vuc team lost/Towns team lost on a buzzer beater/durant did it with less than 20 shots... should i go on?

but how often do you see 44 points on 74 percent shooting and get the win in regulation with 20 plus shot attempts? lol

i posted it again... seems none of those players fit the criteria if we are being accurate... i didnt look up lebron though so maybe he did.

Out of curiosity, when have I ripped and or lauded the Warriors and their players and been way off base in your opinion?

I can't think of a more staunch opponent to their prior ownership. I can't think of a guy that wanted Monta off the team or who was more happy when the Bogut trade went down. Continuing to start Drayomond over All Star D Lee? SIGN. ME. UP. On Curry from Day 1 as a Superstar prospect when doubt rained in louder than a C-5 Hurricane? OH hey, Tredigs again. Lol. Now, it's time to accept that the flowers can't bloom forever and the team needs to let go of a marquee. I am very confident that Bob is smart enough to know that that player is Klay.

In the mean-time, one more ship to win for the boys.

A double double is a stat. He has 3 in a row. No one is history of basketball has ever counted 10/10/5 games. Look at the background on the link you sent. its a made up stat for Sixers homers.

There was Kings scouts at the Bucks game as well watch yours truly John fricking Henson. Shockingly he's been okay this year so far three games in. Its fools gold but if Kings bite cool beans. Maybe Kidd would want old buddy Carter? But Giannis is GOAT. He just needs a Robin on our team. No consistent #2 option. Parker injured. Middleton is to streaky. Brogdon been decent this season as well.

the highlights.


Judging from the Highlight, he's getting a lot of phantom calls. When a defense has to deal with that, they natural back off and play soft.

So in seems like Giannis will be getting the jordan super star foul call most of the season. I hope this doesn't transition into the playoffs also, like how they don't call those phantom calls for Harden during the playoffs.

Good for bucks fans, they have their super star player. So the only things teams can actually do against him, is block off the lane and give him the open mid range shot.

What's the deal with Jokic? 0 points tonight, 7 total points so far on the season, do they not want him to score?

Not like he has played bad but I saw it last year, he almost needs a break out game but until then he plays super passive. He gets his team good looks, still 15 assists through 2 games for a Center is pretty crazy but he is just passing up good looks. His jumper even looks better than last year so I’m not concerned with him. Concerned with our point guard play and Chandler has looked awful.

MFs just don't translate sometimes. He had good measureables. I watched a bunch of his games at Duke and he didn't impress me at all. I didn't see the hype with him. I saw the hype talent wise with Simmons but he just looked like a lazy, non-winner. Ingram just didn't look that special to me talent wise. He was simply long enough to get his shot off against inferior athletes. I dunno, but he sure looks like a bustola!

Interesting. I've never seen any value in him. Apparently scouts did though. The KD comparison is super off base as KD was a supreme scorer even as a rookie in college. Ingram was a decent scorer but could not even hit free throws. That's a huge red flag for a non playmaking wing.

And, just look at the guy and his drive. This kid will never be a dominant force in the NBA. It's clear as day. He's Beasley, not KD.

Have we seen such desperation from media, or a team, to make a guy a superstar like Ball? Meaning, have we ever had a player that isn't even remotely close to a sure fire thing, get shoved down our throats this hard?

It's a bummer too. By all accounts, Ball seems like a nice kid. But his Dad, and the constant "look at the booger Ball picked, it's beautiful!" bs being thrown at us, makes me want nothing but complete disaster failure for this kid.

Yup. Put aside my on court issues with Ball:

The stuff surrounding him is what makes it hard to root for him. I feel bad by admitting I want some level of failure for him because of the Dad and fake hype but man it’s absurd.

Some of the guys on SXM NBARadio have started basically shutting down callers who want to hype him. And I’m glad they are.

Say what you will about Frank Isola (I can’t stand him) but he hit the nail on the head the other day with a caller: “Talk to me when he actually has an impact on how you play the Lakers.”

I think some of us forgot what it was like to be 19years old, and some of us are still around that age lol

Lonzo is in his first year, and only going to get better, look forward to his career.


Also BI, ha had 2 bad games and one excellent game, the kid just like Zo needs to develop into his man body. His jump shot still needs work even though it's improved. He may not develop or he may into an all-star but it's nice to see him working his tail off to get better.

And yes I have a hard on for all things Lakers lol haven't missed a Lakers game in over 25+ years. So it's nice to see some sort of hope for my love again. The Baby Lakers are really something fun and special. Hope they can keep growing, there will be plenty of growing pains but they show flashes of brilliance. It's just nice to be excited for Lakers games again. Instead of being confused half the time in wanting them to tank or win the last few years lol

I just want him to be not thrown in our faces, or have to see his daddy being quoted and put on major sites.

Just let the kid ****ing play already and shut up (not you specifically).

I will toss this in man, but Laker fans playing the, "we just want to see a good team again" is really annoying. Boo ****ing hoo, you guys are down like 4 years. Nobody in your fan base should act like their sports lives are tough. Like ever.

Interesting. I've never seen any value in him. Apparently scouts did though. The KD comparison is super off base as KD was a supreme scorer even as a rookie in college. Ingram was a decent scorer but could not even hit free throws. That's a huge red flag for a non playmaking wing.

And, just look at the guy and his drive. This kid will never be a dominant force in the NBA. It's clear as day. He's Beasley, not KD.

Yeah, forget trying to be like KD. That'll never happen.

I'd put that kid in the weight room in the offseason, shoot him up with a bunch of PEDs, and try to transform into more of a Giannis-type player. He's got the frame for it. Giannis was a stick figure his rookie year too.

Hey, the experiment might not work but it's the best direction for him IMO.

GREATNESS ONE

Lol yea that's the Media for you, they keep sticking a microphone in Lavar's face. Whatever though I just ignore ur and laugh it off most of the time.

You're right I have been blessed to see so many great Lakers teams. I guess when everyone likes to poke fun and enjoying the Lakers latest disarray, you want to return to greatness as soon as you can.

I'm a die hard Dodger and Raiders fan so I know all about waiting and being loyal. It's going to take some time again but at least it's fun to watch again.

lol I semi agree except the PED thing LOL

Brandon is 20 years old, he's relatively a rookie but I agree 100% he needs to bulk up, he gets knocked off his shot consistently but I think he will come around. He's progressing might be slower than some think but he is growing. Hopefully he can get consistent with his jump shot because he can get that off over anyone.

I really like the Dodgers, when I was 13 (1988), I was in the hospital after kidney surgery, and the only thing to watch was the World Series. I LOVED Hershiser, and always have a soft spot for the Dodgers for making me happy when I was sitting in a bed with a tube in me and healing from being cut open the first time haha. I remember my brother and I high-fiving after Gibby hit that bomb with nothing but his wrists because he was all jacked up. Very good memories man..

Still like them. I will be rooting for them the next 1-2 weeks.

Figures. Like me saying nothing special about the 76ers but I don't roll that way. The team is young and talented, and should make some noise in a few years. Hope Simmons can develop into a star and Embiid can stay healthy.

your best player is Clarkson and Randle, Ingram have seriously unperformed while Randle looks all but gone after this season. Honestly, if you strike out in FA whats there that looks promising? I coudlnt get excited for a Ball, Kuzma, KCP, Lopez unit next year.

lol, please

Best player is Randle... you haven't been watching. Clarkson is ballin but let's not pretend you actually are tuning into the games.

Even if we strike out in FA we're going to be ok, as long as we don't over pay like Mozgov/Deng. Ball has been excellent so far 3games in, yes he is making rookie mistakes but and yes his body needs to build up but he looks like the real deal.


Good thing, you don't have to get excited. I will be enough for both of us.

I wouldn't be too confident about that yet. It was easy to sit out this FA period TBH. But next year, you miss out on those top ones after sitting out a year Magic, Palinka, Jeannie will be scratching to pull the trigger and bring someone in.

The biggest fear I would live with for you guys is Brook Lopez. North Hollywood kid playing in LA, already has one big contract and looking for one more, and has the ability to make the most money with LAL? It's scary. He has the potential to bugger up your cap.
