I can't wait until Wade retires so you can finally pick a team to root for, instead of being a bandwagon for wherever Wade plays. So you're a Heat, Bulls, and Cavs fan?

I'm a wade fan first and foremost. Have no NBA team in my city nor state so I have no ties to any team. Wade has always been my favorite player and I decided to ride it out with him until it retires. I keep up with the Heat on occasion but I'm a fan of whatever team Wade is on first and foremost until he retires.

I'm disappointed in Russ. But then again, his gameplay has always been about doing "everything" so he tries to do more than he should and that cost us the game tonight. I like how we match up against the Warriors but we're getting killed vs teams we have had leads on... which really pisses me off considering we should have won this game.

With no Kawhi , I knew this would be a super tough game. Russ being 5-22 or whatever he was definitely helped, he was doing too much in the 3rd, and our shooters got hot.

I'm going to get this out the way, I am a Knicks fan, but I want to see Melo when a chip. Now that I've gotten that out the way..... Westbrook will be the reason why PG and potentially Melo leave the thunder. I know Westbrook has the green light as he should, but the problem with Westbrook is his low IQ. He shoots the ball when ever he feels like jacking it up, without regards for the teams circumstances and without guys under the basket for offensive rebounds. He also forces the issue way to much, to the point that it cost the team untimely turnovers. Another thing I've realized about his play, he has no ball control or handles to break down his man, he's just a North to South player, in other words he can't break down the defense to set others up with dribble penetration the way that a Kyrie,Harden or Cp3 can, and the team is suffering for it. What did he go 6-22, so if you realize that the jumper isn't falling, why wouldn't you be more aggressive and take it to the basket and draw fouls or here's a better idea! Don't shoot it and give it to PG, he's more of a play maker than Russ, or what about Melo who had the hot ✋, why would the play be ran for Russ with the game on the line to shoot the 3 when he couldn't by a basket from 15ft out? A lot of it falls on the coach.

And on top of that my Knicks lost, all in all a bad night for me.

Harden
Giannis
LeBron

If I had to vote today. Irving being MVP is laughable. He's having a down season but Brad Stevens has just made the team work so well that Irving is essentially allowed to make mistakes offensively. Really, I'm not sure how Brad is doing this but he should be penciled in as COTY already.

Harden's cooking it up but I expect CP3 to steal some of his shine when he's back.
Giannis has slowed down from his insane start. I still see some issues with his game that concerns me when the game slows down in the playoffs.
LeBron is just unreal. He's getting better every season (outside of his terrible defense, ofc). 30 points on over 60% shooting is insane.

My point exactly. I love Russ for his persona but sometimes he just irritates me with his terrible IQ. Literally, if you look at Russ vs Lebron, the difference is pretty much about IQ. One guy knows when to take the best shot while the other just tries to do everything and then ends up costing his team. I wish we had made a trade for CP3 years ago because we had the defensive talent/shooters years ago to make it work and we just stuck with the same old system.

Lonzo is broken. Confidence completely gone. Refs failed to call a goaltend that would've resulted in lonzos first make and he looked defeated. Rip

I mean if the ref fails to call a blatant goaltend id rather have him get a T than look like you ****in want to cry.

yea that is another thing... id have no issues if he started cussing out the ref calling ******** lol... kuzma is trying to posterize people and is getting whacked hard with no foul calls but my man is aggressive... ball needs that and that is the scary thing about him.... he has never shown fire.

**** Booker. Don't like him. His stats are inflated af cuz of his games vs us. He's just as bad on D as he is good on offense and complains like no other. Quickly becoming one of my least liked players with how he plays just to pad stats.

He's been great today but hmm still not a fan.

holy **** yes.

Against pretty poor teams.. not really saying much. These games are getting way too close that the margin of error will eventually see to them losing. They turn it up on the fourth every game and that's just not how you win games.

Jokic has outplayed both Cousins and Davis.

I thought the Pelicans would be a threat to the Nuggets this year, they won't.

I'm still trying to figure out why they got Rondo.

I'm going to get this out the way, I am a Knicks fan, but I want to see Melo when a chip. Now that I've gotten that out the way..... Westbrook will be the reason why PG and potentially Melo leave the thunder. I know Westbrook has the green light as he should, but the problem with Westbrook is his low IQ. He shoots the ball when ever he feels like jacking it up, without regards for the teams circumstances and without guys under the basket for offensive rebounds. He also forces the issue way to much, to the point that it cost the team untimely turnovers. Another thing I've realized about his play, he has no ball control or handles to break down his man, he's just a North to South player, in other words he can't break down the defense to set others up with dribble penetration the way that a Kyrie,Harden or Cp3 can, and the team is suffering for it. What did he go 6-22, so if you realize that the jumper isn't falling, why wouldn't you be more aggressive and take it to the basket and draw fouls or here's a better idea! Don't shoot it and give it to PG, he's more of a play maker than Russ, or what about Melo who had the hot ✋, why would the play be ran for Russ with the game on the line to shoot the 3 when he couldn't by a basket from 15ft out? A lot of it falls on the coach.

And on top of that my Knicks lost, all in all a bad night for me.I approved of this post and it's the reason why KD left too. Westy is a stat lover and hurt his team chances to win with efficiency in order to win his way or the highway :nod:

The Nuggets put up the highest point total by any team this season with 146. When things start going for them at home, it's very hard to stop them. They blew out the Raps at home as well. They just need more consistency.

They just need more consistency.The consistency is coming. They're a young team and still meshing with Millsap. In their last 4 games, they're 3-1 and have beat some pretty good teams. Beat the Thunder, Magic, and Pelicans. Got two games now against terrible teams (Lakers and Kings) before a big matchup against Houston.

I think having Mudiay come off the bench is the best decision Nuggets made. He's a high volume shot-taker and it just never made any sense. They were playing behind Mudiay as if he was the best player. About time they gave up on him "leading" a team. I think Nuggets are getting bounced in the first round, though. Too many inexperienced players and Jokic+Milsap aren't going to be outplaying some of these other duo's out West.

Depends what seed. If they get a bottom 3 seed, then probably. But If they get 4th or 5th I like their chances to get to the second round.

Rockets, Warriors and Spurs (with Kawhi) are just better. But I'm not sold on either OKC or Minny. I think both of those teams are overrated and very beatable. Minny is barely winning games and OKC plays great defense, but offensively they still haven't been able to get anything going.

Denver is a really young inexperienced team. I don't think any of what we say has any value this early on. I can see some teams having some huge dropoff and getting bounced from the playoffs. Minny/OKC aren't even fully developed. Teams are still learning at this point.

I feel you on breaking down the defense. Guys like RW, Giannis, LeBron, Rose (in his prime) don't really break down the defender (3 guys winning mvps), they are north south guys that just use their athleticism to get to the hole. Derzona too. The rules nowadays make it easier for less skilled wings to flourish like Kobe said.

As for RW, he is what he is, the type of guy that can elevate a weak team all on his own, but he won't make a contender that much better.

Melo needs some criticism too, the guy has to do the small things that help you win games.

Shouldn't that tell you something about OKC though? They have way too much offensive firepower to be bad offensively all year. When they figure it out they'll be scary. Jimmy hasn't even got going for Minny yet. He's still getting comfortable, he's their best player and a top 10 player in the league.

You can say the same thing about most of the nuggets starters, including Jokic, even though heis still putting up nice numbers.

I mean I'd like to see him at least step in and get his teammates out of there, but we know no one is going throw any punches unless they want a lengthy suspension. It's usually just pushing and shoving. I don't think it's a big deal.

If you say they arenít a playoff team Iím not really sure what to think.

I mean we have Chandler who has been one of the worst starters In the league when historically he is good for 15 points a game on solid efficiency, and basically 2 super young point guards who are figuring this league out.

When Denver plays defense we are a top 4 team in the west now and even without defense we are a top 8.

Team lacks toughness and that killer instinct but I am excited to watch them against Houston. Itís hard to beat teams that have 6 double digit scorers that donít play iso.
