Yes... I've quoted you on your misses last time and will do it again today... Hornets, don't be sure on Nets, Knicks may do them, Celtics should win this because they are coming the same roster "chemistry" and coaching as last season, GSW, Thunder... too many mistakes this time!

hes trying to roast me for going 8 out of 11 right lol like because im not perfect hes got to "call me out" lol

i understand if i went 3-8 but i think 8-3 is good :shrug:

1. Magic because they are playing at home.
2. Both these teams are tanking. The players don't know it yet but they are already in tank mode.
3. Give the edge to Boston since Kahwi is still rusty.
4. Haws and Memphis. See explanation #2.
5. Minny. Especially is Butler is not traded yet.
6. NO will demolish the Kings. After the game people are going to act like they are going to be the #2 seed this year.
7. The Bucks and Pacer game is going to be a good one. Probably best EC game of the day. I'll pick Bucks just because I don't want Buckalis on my case if I don't.
8. Warriors and Jazz will be the best WC game of the day. I will go with Utah. They are very very good at home.
9. Clippers because Westbrook is probably not going to play. If he does then OKC.

Actually I think this is quite a "dangerous" game for the Bucks, because Indy is the same in tactics and coaching from last season, while the Bucks are with new coach and tactics, which surely isn't perfected yet...

EDIT: I would give it 60/40 for the Bucks to win it, but if they do, it means they'll end up top-3 in the East (as Zach Lowe predicts)...

How does a bucks win in game two mean top 3 finish in the east?

Also I like the Pacers in this game. They made some sneaky good moves this offseason.

How does a bucks win in game two mean top 3 finish in the east?

It doesn't in general, it does in this case because it means that the Bucks are near ready and have tested it against a solid team that is as ready as it can be and will be TOP-5...


Also I like the Pacers in this game. They made some sneaky good moves this offseason. Yes... it was all solid additions for fine tuning roster depth where needed, without altering team tactics or team core...

KL is carrying right now and taking apart the celtics.


Towns..... Looks like he gives no ****s. Sorry Hawkeye.... Its sad but butler has to be traded even though he is playing insane to start the season... You cant have your best player look uninterested and he does right now and it has to be because of butler.

The Raps are better than the Celtics and will represent the East this year.

Also Jayson Tatum is so overrated its ridiculous. The way people talk about him is as if he's a top 15 player in this league. He's not.

sigh... when will people learn. not his best shooting performance but he did everything else against one of the better defenses with no real chemistry... he literally took over the 2nd half and his man defense and off the ball defense was what has made his so special year after year when healthy.

i still think celts will end up the 1 seed but he isnt wrong about the tatum hype train... it seems like every and anyone can play in their system with all the help and as much love as tatum has got his first year and this year... he came in more ready than anyone so its expected that he would start off better than most.. he has size/shooting and his offensive game was always there but he is insanely over hyped.


Really think about this... look at what tatum did last year and he was probably talked about more than ben simmons who was worlds better.

On ESPN they were comparing him to the next Kobe Bryant, I mean that is incredibly insulting to Kobe.

I mean he had a decent year on a very good team, playing for a great coach.

Simmons won ROY last year, which I did have issues with, but he's nowhere near Simmons' class as a player. Simmons has difficulties shooting, but he's way better than Tatum.

10-19-2018, 10:44 PM
Kawhi was kind of selfish on offense to be honest. Not too sure if he was doing it on his own, or if Nick Nurse wants him to be aggressive to set up other teams down the line.

I think Tatum was just erratic tonight with the offensive fouls and dumb fouls. I still think he's a stud in the making. Game is smooth like Butter. He unraveled in the 2nd half.

More-Than-Most
10-19-2018, 10:48 PM
You said youíd take Fultz over Tatum. Your posts have no credibility.

tatum is clearly better no doubt... but for whatever reason it seems like the less intelligent basketball people on this site seem to think 1 player is always gonna be better after 1 season for 1 player and 15 games for the other which is interesting to me esp when you factor in just 1 and a half years ago fultz had more upside than anyone by most people and tatum was the more ready nba talent... fultz got into his own head and ****ed things up that for the most part now seems fixed where is tatum came out and played how most who understood his game knew he would come out... Its called talent levels... Tatum is the safer pick but fultz has more talent and him messing up his shot for 1 season doesnt really take away from the talent he has it just set him back a year and well for a 19 year old that isnt a huge deal....


but by all means... a guy like kobe was amazing his first year right? Now tatum could end up being the very best player in this draft but yes id rather stick with fultz.

Thats basically how he was in his last real season with us. But because he was so efficient, it made it easier to accept. Sometimes he'd force it, but he can score in so many ways.

Becoming a playmaker/ball handler was the 1 thing (Imo) that he needed to add to his game to elevate to new heights

I get it.. I think he wouldve strongly considered staying there, there was connections. And if DG was included, that would've been something. Kawhi and Embiid are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of personality lol

More-Than-Most
10-19-2018, 11:00 PM
its whatever lol... fultz will show people just like embiid did and simmons did... hell embiid was never suppose to play more than 30 games or 18 minutes a night by people on here and simmons was a bust in the making and would get exposed because he cant shoot 3s or fts but only went on to have one of the best rookie seasons and already amazing through the first 2 games..... seems legit.

His form was not too bad, but yea. Dude couldn't hit a shot, no one respected him outside the paint. Once he got that mid range shot down, it's what made him one of the toughest guards in the league to stop.

His quickness and ability to finish in traffic was what kept him playing, despite his inability to shoot consistently.

simpler times... now if you cant hit 45 pct from 3 and shoot 50 pct from the field and score 25 a game you suck. Now I do think fultz/simmons need to get better with their shooting of course but its a joke how we put everything on shooting in the NBA and forget about vision/defense/first step movements/explosiveness and about 10 other things that go into an NBA player.

if you are gonna take that stupid *** shot just wait for it to be at 1 second on the shot clock... he could have wasted about 4 more seconds missing leaving warriors with 2 seconds and not 6.

The box scores are going to be forever inflated because of the play style of the League.

It's like every player offensively gains and extra 7 points. lol

yea when teams are just relying on the 3 this will happen. Honestly its smart 3 points are better than 2 and unless your team has a sick post game you are better shooting 3s statistically because the shot from a 3 and a 2 isnt really all that different while getting 1 extra point... if this keeps going the league really should think about pushing the 3 point line back some. All teams do now is space the floor and chuck 3s.

see and this right here is why i start questioning people... tell me why?

I love simmons but tell me why? Embiid has no weaknesses except turnovers which can be easily fixable compared to a shot... if simmons doesnt have embiid the lack of shot really really really would expose him and that lack of shot... id trade neither but right now you would be willing to trade the guy that covers up for the weakness instead of the guy with the weakness? seems legit. If you add KL for embiid simmons suffers the most... KL cant cover up for the simmons weakness like embiid can because KL doesnt command double teams every single time he touches the ball which opens up the drive ability of big bem.

Id trade neither but embiid doesnt need an embiid to make embiid successful at this point in time... simmons needs an embiid to keep simmons successful

I just felt that there were times he could of made the pass and got the better look for the team. On fast breaks he was a black hole, and sometimes when he drove, there were guys open with he seemed stubborn.

The Raps are better than the Celtics and will represent the East this year.

Also Jayson Tatum is so overrated its ridiculous. The way people talk about him is as if he's a top 15 player in this league. He's not.

Magic, Nets, Toronto, Memphis, Minnesota, Pelicans, Bucks, Jazz, Clipps

7-2


Hornets, Knicks, Celtics, Bears, Wolves, Bucks, GSW, Thunder...

EDIT: Oooups... forgot the Pelicans! (I'm allowed since game hasn't started, ...right?)

absolutely horrendous defensive effort. of the 19 3s made by the jazz, I honestly think less than 5 of them were even reasonably defended. Then you look at Durants shot at the end there and it wasnt even a 3 but he had 2 guys right on him as he shot it. If warriors defended every 3 even 1/2 as well as they defended durants buzzer beater attempt- warriors win that game by 20 points

Simmons has the same weekeness Bron had.

Simmons makes everyone better and his upside is amazing

I donít like Embiids legs.

Kawhi is a great shooter

Simmons and Kawhi Tandem I love. They make each other better.

Embiid is kind of a black hole/ball stopper. Heís was reminding me of washed melo against the Celtics. Shot every time he got the ball, didnít care where he was, and mostly missed. And again, I donít like his legs, they just donít seem sturdy.

Does this explain it for you?

If Al Horford is packing your só- and owning you and muscling you every time you play...and your saying his only weekness is turnovers? Watching his legs buckle back and forth as he tries his best to get by Al, and watching Al just say no every time is driving Embiids stock down in my eyes. Itís almost as if his knees or legs are unable to do what is necessary to get by horford.

I donít like Embiids legs, how they move, how they react, how they are always looking ďslothyĒ and exaggerated.

Basketball fans deserve a Cs-Raps playoff series. That was fun to watch, even for a Cs fan last night (excluding result).

It will be interesting to see how Ibaka holds up over the course of the season. I thought he was pretty awesome last night and made a huge difference for them.

Also, Danny Green was a big get for them. That dude hits 3s in his sleep.

True but to me it makes more sense because kawhi would be maximized with Embiid, as opposed to another ball handler who will make him worse

Lebron did come a long long way with his shot. But I think the point is it was never at the point Simmons is. Lebron wasnít afraid to shoot jumpers. Simmons does everything to avoid them.

Simmons is legit a taller Rondo right now (without the crappy attitude). Rondo used to do the same thing with doing everything in his power to avoid taking a jumper. Used to drive Cs fans mad.

His size obviously gives him an advantage but his fear of shooting needs to be addressed. He just needs the threat of an actual jumper. I donít think it will be an issue during the regular season cause heís that good but teams with the right personnel will give him fits in the playoffs.

Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkYou are generalizing largely. It would be like me saying the Knicks wont suck every year. That's optimism. Entirely different than saying this team can and should make it out of the east. Same with saying the Raptors wont fold in the playoffs. Raptor fans, and it would seem, wrongly, gave DeRozan the benefit of the doubt every year. But before last year nobody, not even our own fans, meant that we would be in the finals. Before last year, we were saying this will be the year we will lose but with dignity. LOL. Last year we should have made the ECF finals, at least. This year, no reason to not expect the same or more.
