Yeah, he's on a minutes restriction though.

And we're still without Nance, TT, Hood, and Osman. Korver is questionable. I get the feeling once healthy it won't take too long before we're looking good again.

It's okay. MTM is no stranger to minutes restrictions. pYou think love can play in b2b games? Because it took his favorite player 3 1/2 years to do that so he probably thinks thars normal for all injuries.

LeBron's FT shooting is a huge problem no one is talking about. He's improved from last season but when you're without Kyrie and the games are close, he's literally the only star on the team who will get fouled at this point.

I will say this about Miami and Bucks.. They are VERY lucky the 9th seed in East suck and are probably not going to make the playoffs. There would be some serious pressure on those two teams if the 9th seed was closer in terms of record. How sad would it be if Giannis couldn't lead the Bucks to the playoffs? I defend Giannis against almost anyone but he's not able to carry a team the way these other superstars can.

Believe Miami is 6-3 in their last 9, 2 of those losses without Wade and Whiteside and also had cited multiple blowncalls in the L2M of 2 of those losses that would've given them the win so they should be 8-1. Gearing up at the right time, nobody wants to see them in the playoffs.

Well, Tre is right. Triple doubles are so easy to come by for players who just pound the ball in today's age due to the undersized teams. It's much easier to grab 10 boards if you're a guard. In Simmon's case, the guy just has the right height and came in at the right time. Simmon's will be breaking a lot of records in regards to stats. I would not be surprised if he drops a 20/20/20 game down the line. That's why I hated when Russ kept getting credit for triple doubles. I don't want my guard stealing rebounds from my center - which he had done thanks to Adams being so nice.

if my post wasn't obvious enough, my post is because I think Raptors match up poorly vs the Sixers so I'd like to see the Sixers bounce the Raptors off just because Raptors fans seem to think they will win the East easily. It has nothing to do with having a cold take. And are you willing to bet Sixers will be a 3rd/4th or is this one of your, "I just say stuff because I like to make noise" statements? Willing to stop using PSD until the playoffs end if you guys don't make it to the 3rd/4th?

It's still something to me that's impressive. Mostly because the assist part of the triple double is a testament to finding the right play and getting your guys good looks.

And part of the reason I disagree that it's right time, excluding this year, here's the seasons in the top 5 of most triple doubles:
2016-17; 1988-89; 2015-16; 1961-62; 1986-87

If those were all in the 2000's I would agree. but there's some older seasons here.

And you talk about the fact he could be stealing rebounds from someone:
Saric has more rebounds per game this year than last year (6.9 vs 6.3)
Embiid has more rebounds per game this year than last year (11.2 vs 7.8)
Our SG is rebounding at the same rate.
RoCo is the only one down in rebounding (5.6 vs 6.6)

Personally I've never understood this complaint about whose getting the rebound. At the end of the day you got the rebound and the other team didn't. To me that's just silly. And I agree with a few coaches here, because the advantage to the guard or a ball handler getting a rebound is they can put the ball on the court and create a fast break off a rebound. When it's a guy like Adams he's either got to be an elite outlet passer or for guys to clear out and Westbrook to come get the ball.

No, cause you talk about having a discussion but you avoid it every chance you get. I'm not even asking for money. I'm asking for you to put your words to the test. Stop spouting nonsense. You think Cavs will get eliminated in the first round? Then don't log on until the playoffs end if they make it past it. Stop with these horrible takes and people will stop confronting you on the legality of your posts. You're making it impossible to take serious when you splurt out random crap and won't defend it.

nothing i said is random crap. i told you look at the sixers scehdule and tell me a top 3-4 seed isnt likely. what else do i have to say to defend that? i think the Cavs stink and cant defend my rec league team and Wiz, Sixers, and Pacers are all good enough to bounce them early. all you do is troll the sixers when you get the chance. but its ok im gonna leave you blocked and ill come back and laugh at you after im right.

How have I trolled the Sixers? Name them, I'll wait and DEFEND every single argument I've made. You make it seem as if the Sixers are a perfect team and that anyone who calls out valid flaws are a hater. You just want to hear what you agree with. If I made a Sixers avatar on my name and start spouting Sixers bias propaganda, you would be saying, "I agree, A+, 100%, don't listen to Vee-Rex, he is a hater." That's literally all you've done. You can't find any non-Sixers fan to agree with any of your nonsense. Can we put a wager on it or not? If Sixers are the 3-4th seed, I'll get off PSD for the entire year. If not, you get off it. Deal? Let's see if you actually agree with your takes.

I don't see the Heat getting higher than 7th due to the refs ****ing them over in 2 recent games.

Would you all rather play the Celtics minus Smart or the Raptors with notorious playoff chokers in DD and Lowry? I'm leaning towards the Celtics but unsure.

Ugh.

I'm gonna be polite and point out what you're doing because I'm starting to believe that, frightfully, you really don't have a clue.

You responded to a post saying "HOPEFULLY he can land 7th or 8th to knock out Raps/Celts"

with:


lol we are gonna be 3rd or 4th. i love your cold takes on the sixers.

How is that any kind of take when he was simply HOPING?

Rather than saying, "I think the Sixers will be 3rd or 4th", you elect to make a declaration, rather than serve an opinion, and the declaration was a direct response to someone who WASN'T making a declaration.

Then when you're called on it, you go, "I was just giving my opinion!!! You mad because I disagree???"

Do you not see why you are being interpreted this way?

Regarding the Cavs, you didn't say,

"I think the Cavs are gonna lose in the first round."
"I feel like the Cavs won't reach the 2nd round."

You said nothing to indicate it was an opinion.

Instead, you declare, "Cavs are getting bounced in the 1st."

And then when the one dude said, "I think it's unlikely because..."

You respond, "agree to disagree"

You didn't even give an attempt to explain why your unpopular take warranted a discussion.

I talk to people like that all the time in person. I know people who give those kind of takes, and it's easy to discuss with them. But online? You're better off clarifying or it'll be easily misunderstood as trolling and/or a simple hot take.

Hope that clears it up?

Exactly. If he said, "I think Sixers will be the 3rd-4th seed because of our schedule.." he wouldn't get these type of responses. But because he phrases it as absolute, people just call him out for it to see if he's trolling or legitimately serious. And the fact is, he never makes a case for it. He doesn't take a look at the other schedules of other teams. How much do you want to bet he never took a look at the schedules for the rest of the EC teams? I bet he never did. Because all he cares about is Sixers Sixers Sixers and anyone who says otherwise is a Hater Hater Hater. So when people do call him out for what he says oh so confidently, he backtracks and says, "I'm just here to discuss." Yet, his explanation for why Cavs will get bounced out of the first round is the worst discussion I've ever read in an attempt to explain it. It's obvious, man. I don't think this guy has been watching basketball long. He's a great casual fan but he just doesn't know basketball the way some of us can interpret it. I usually don't care about join date for people who just joined on some new hype stuff but this guy seems to be a direct representation for that. All those years Sixers sucked and this guy finally managed to have the confidence to get on a basketball forum when the buzz around Sixers starts pumping up? Oh yeah, what a great timing. Where was this guy when Evan Turner was their best player? lol.

dude, we only have 4 games left vs playoffs teams and all at home and only 5 road games left all vs tanking teams.

i think 4th is the most realistic but the Cavs are so dysfunctional we just need them to drop a game or 2 they should win which they should be good for to at least make it interesting.

just look at the schedules its really that simple. we are sitting pretty right now.

The only reason you don't want the Cavs and LeGm in the playoffs is that you will play 8 vs. 5 at all times.

Two completely different situations though.
Lebron was hailed as the new GOAT even in high school, where also the nickname "The Chosen One" was born. James got way more hate than Simmons in his career even when he was really young and a non - professional player, because of the media coverage and the over the top expectations. Now he still gets hate, but for different reasons, people already accepted that he's bound to be a top 5 player of all time and the best small forward of all time.

Simmons, instead, got a little bit of hatred here in this forum because of the excessive positive things said about him. Overall I think is a player that fans like, plus he doesn't show any mentality problems as Lebron for now (I'm referring to his hostility to any kind of coaching, right now maybe just Pop could tame him).

Mine wasn't hate. It's just a fact that triple-doubles are not the same threshold any longer. The pace, style and officiating of the current NBA (specifically the past few years, with it peaking right now) have inflated stats. Westbrook's going to average a triple double on the season again this year and we just don't care because this is a league now where Elfrid Payton has multiple triple doubles and Nikola Jokic is a threat to put one up every other night. To hit this home, Westbrook and Lebron have WAY more triple doubles this season (39... and mind you, the season is far from over) than the ENTIRE NBA in 2009 (and most every year). That's prime Lebron, Rondo, J Kidd, etc.

Again, it's just not a stat that means anything anymore. But again, Simmons is still very nice, and it's not like it's a bad thing to rack up the 3x2's. By the way, Simmons was easily the favorite for ROY on here and in Vegas (two years in a row...).

if my post wasn't obvious enough, my post is because I think Raptors match up poorly vs the Sixers so I'd like to see the Sixers bounce the Raptors off just because Raptors fans seem to think they will win the East easily. It has nothing to do with having a cold take. And are you willing to bet Sixers will be a 3rd/4th or is this one of your, "I just say stuff because I like to make noise" statements? Willing to stop using PSD until the playoffs end if you guys don't make it to the 3rd/4th?

May I ask which Raptor fans think that it's going to be an easy path to the finals :laugh2: . Lebron's still in the conference, and even if that team doesn't show up in the playoffs, it's gonna be a gauntlet. There's Boston, who has a fantastic coach, there's the Cavs with LBJ, there's the Wizards who are probably getting Wall back for the playoffs, there's the rugged Pacers, the young and talented 76ers, and the very resilient Bucks and Heat. It wouldn't shock me at all if there are some upsets out East.

also, can't Raptor fans be confident in their team going into the playoffs? I mean, what do you expect some of us to say "Our team is likely going to have HCA over the East in the playoffs, but I don't think they'll do ****" :laugh2:. Many of us are aware that this is probably the Raptors best chance at getting to the finals cause after this, we're getting older, and a few of the teams in the playoff picture now, should be getting stronger (Bucks, 76ers, Celtics). That's not including if Lebron stays :laugh2:

I'm sure you had confidence in your Thunder team when they were at the top of the West :D

I think it would be a good series (again, as these teams don't stop attacking each other). I'd enjoy a repeat of 2016, where us Raptor and Heat fans sit back, crack a brew, and talk about how **** the Refs were in the entire series :laugh2:

It was literally Wade vs the Raptors and he pushed you to 7 lol. No Bosh or Whiteside and everyone else was ******** the bed. Had the Heat been at full health they win in no More than 6 and then we finally get the Wade vs LeBron series we deserved. :(

Now that is close. LeBron was also a whole year younger averaging 20-6-6. Ben's 16-8-8 is impressive but no Lebron.

Tough to just compare numbers from '03 to 2018. It's apples to oranges with regards to pace. Those Cavs ran a pace of 90.9 (actually above average for the time) and scored 92 PPG (gave up 95). These Sixers run a pace of 98.9 (for reference, that's significantly faster than the "6 second or less" D'Antoni/Nash Suns) and put up 108 ppg (give up 106). The box score numbers are up significantly as a result (that's my point with the triple doubles).

But, they do have similar roles (Ben just having far, far superior teammates + a year to watch the game in the front row) and similar production value. Granted, it was year 2 that Lebron began to take off. TBD for Ben. He'll be an All Star for a while though. Possibly approach superstar status in a few years.

i actually agree with all of this but bens defense which i dont think he will sustain over the years much like lebron didnt is better than brons his first year and the league was like you stated different and the pace is also different thus the defensive side of things favor ben.
