^Actually I think I was 5-2 not 6-1 KDSpurman. Jazz lost in OT and Dallas lost by 1.

I won't have much time to look at the games the next few days or see injury updates, but off the top of my head let's go...

Nuggets
Clippers
Hornets
Kings
Celtics
Blazers


Multiple tough ones today so there should be a nice variety of picks.

This is harder then i thought. I took the Blazer tonight b/c the Pel are B2b, Lillard is hot, and they should want to beat the Pels after getting smoked by them in the playoffs. Still i think the Pels are a better team. Tricky

B2b after a tough game against the Warriors and a strong Portland team on rest @home is enough for me, though agreed all things being equal I lean Pels.

Surprised everyone has the Celtics so far against the undefeated Bucks and a rested Giannis. I like them too but could just as easily go Milwaukee.

we started slow last year too and our still playing without Wilson Chandler (doubt we get Zahire Smith this season) who should give a nice boost on both ends. Embiid and Ben are doing their thing but Saric is really hurting us right now, he just looks gassed from playing ball with no offseason for 3 straight years but hes been a slow starter the first 2 years with us so hopefully he picks it up soon, we need him too. Im really not sure what to make of the tea yet. sucks losing to Boston, Mil, and the Raps already but 2 of them were road B2Bs

My choice for voting Bucks, has nothing to do with me being a fan of the team... I would have voted for the Bucks, even if I was a Celtics fan, for the following reasons:

1. The Bucks are about to set a historic new team record at starting the season with 8-0, after matching the 7-0 record that Jabar's Bucks did back in 1971...

2. The Bucks want to start this season by having beat all East direct competitors and thus have an early clear advantage.

3. The confidence within the team is off the roof and Giannis is back wanting to add his name in this historic start after missing the previous game.

we wont ever win with such a horrid coach like brown... muscala/simmons/amir on the floor at the same time when the clippers were driving.... we got a big lead because we landed 3 pointers in the first... as soon as we go cold from 3 we get exposed because of our stupid game plan/plays... everyone stands around and just jacks up shots with no movement and no play calls... its hilarious how bad of a coach brown is. We play like the warriors but with limited shooters... its utterly moronic... if embiid is going off or our 3s arent falling we cant run fundamental basketball.

1) it didn't work on Curry lol. He was still efficient and they blew the doors off of them because he's a willing passer.

2.) Embiid will have to be good enough to lead them to that point to find out. TBD. Not there as is

lol, he's not better than ball. If you watched the Lakers, Lonzo RARELY holds onto the ball. He's lacking so many opportunities on this team. He could easily be putting up much better numbers. I mean, last season he was averaging like 11/8/8 having the worst shooting in NBA history. This year, his shooting and shot selection has looked much better because he bulked up. don't confuse putting up stats vs being a better player. If Lonzo had his own team, we'll be looking at someone who puts up much better numbers. The biggest complaint I have with the Lakers right now is that they're not trusting Lonzo and keep inserting Rondo. For a young guy like Lonzo to be subbed in/out at random times, it's difficult to gain any confidence.

i have no issues with balls play this year but he is being asked to do next to nothing on the offensive end... His offense means nothing so far its all about his defense which he has been incredible at so far. I still like fox upside over ball even if its not smart money much like I stated I love fultz upside over tatum... again not smart money but the results early mean next to nothing because ball and tatum were more ready coming in compared to fox and fultz. Ball has been much better this season but the best thing about him is his defense.

the best thing about Lonzo is he moves the ball and gets the correct passes. It's a shame the Lakers have too many playmakers because Lonzo could do much more. Defense is what gets noticed because that's the only thing he can do where he's not really dependent on his teammates at times. If I do the draft again, I'm taking Lonzo top three easily. you can't replicate what he does.

hes asked to do nothing right now offensively... You cant say that after when he was asked to do it all last year he was terrible... Who knows how it would be if he had the pressure on him again... Right now we can go by he has all the talent in the world and plays great defense but isnt being asked to do anything offensively.

lmao, he bulked up like 20 lbs.. he's asked to do nothing offensively because the team has so many playmakers. watch the games and don't look up stats please

Yeah that was some J Kidd ****. Got my Bucks +7.5 in play at least. Giannis on that layup showed his clumsiness when he's not dunking. He doesn't have a great basketball "feel" yet. May never. Still a beast though.

lol i watched every game you are also ignoring the inflated offensive stats all around because of the lakers poor team defense... that is why it seems like the lakers have all of these play makers. As for the watching the game argument it shows you havent taken your own advice and are giving an opinion how ball is better but you yourself have not watched 1 second of a kings game right? lol adorable... watch the games he says while judging 1 player over another without watching the other player at all or looking at everything that goes into each situation which is why the eye test is ********... stats though actually show ball is having a good season which I am not discounting... I am simply saying HE HAS 0 weight on his shoulders offensively and judging by the eye test has had a ton of wide open shots and layups because of these play makers you speak of that are so called holding his statistical output back.

you're not making any sense. "zero weight on his shoulders." That means he's having less opportunities. You act like Ball isn't making a difference on the court. Put DeAaron on the Lakers and he'd struggle because he wouldn't be able to have all those opportunities to gain his confidence. I don't need to watch a second of the Kings game. Fox is a good player but opportunities do not equate to being a better player. I watch three teams, Lakers, OKC, and any other team on national TV. You pretend you watch every team lol.

Both fox and Ball are having a great season so far but IMO Fox would excel on the Lakers especially with Lebron on the team. Hes more aggressive, quicker than Lonzo and he attack the rim more getting to the free throw line.

Ben Simmons jump shot watch: 1-4 from 11 feet or futher. All Jumpers according to the shot chart are from 11, 12, 12, and 13 feet

the Fultz Box score looks good, shot chart is mostly all around the rim which looks good, no fear attacking the basket

cant really comment on how good either looked, and cant say ben had more opportunities (which im sure he did) but box scores say they played well

i just want to see Simmons develop into that #1 player in the league and that jumper man is gonna hold him back from reaching his full potential

JLynn943
11-02-2018, 10:56 AM
lol, he's not better than ball. If you watched the Lakers, Lonzo RARELY holds onto the ball. He's lacking so many opportunities on this team. He could easily be putting up much better numbers. I mean, last season he was averaging like 11/8/8 having the worst shooting in NBA history. This year, his shooting and shot selection has looked much better because he bulked up. don't confuse putting up stats vs being a better player. If Lonzo had his own team, we'll be looking at someone who puts up much better numbers. The biggest complaint I have with the Lakers right now is that they're not trusting Lonzo and keep inserting Rondo. For a young guy like Lonzo to be subbed in/out at random times, it's difficult to gain any confidence.

It was fine. He started taking those shots and Harris/Gali started picking him up out at the 3 pt line. And this is part of the growth I was talking about earlier in the season. He's taking more of them. Now next game we might see less because of the 1-4 on them. But the willingness to do more out a bit is fine at this rate.

If Simmons gets his jump shot he can be as close to LeBron and KD especially if he comes into it and he has the size and the ability to get to the rim and he can play off the ball too

1-4 isnt even a big deal, if he gets a bounce on 1 hes 2-4 at 50% and no one is saying anything.

i would still have posted it even if it was 2-4. my bigger concern is nothing outside of 13 feet. he seems comfortable around 12 feet which is what the shot charts say. For the 76ers to make the next step and for Ben hes got to get to at least 18 feet

12 feet isnít a jump shot. Itís 3 feet inside the foul line.

I cant stand that he doesnt force shots... if we have any shot against the celtics next year and beyond he needs a jumper... its no secret we struggle against good defensive teams with depth or length like the celtics/raptors... If he doesnt work on his jumper Fultz will legit have to become great within the next year... Ben needs to stop being such a *****... when the coach is saying he wishes he would shoot more that screams a problem. The goal should be to work on his shot... making the playoffs as a 2 or 3 and making it as a 7 or 8 is meaningless... there should just be 1 goal... i can live with him going 2-14 if he just shoots. As for Fultz if not for his 3rd quarter we lose that game. His drive and play making is insane and he isnt scared to shoot anymore. Lots of his shots seem to be just short.

I wonder how great it feels to be the dodgers this past few years or the suns all those years where they came up short but to be fair they actually had a shot... The warriors/rockets/Celtics/Raptors are the 4 best teams and then there is a gap... Id love to sit here and say we are gonna go out there game in and game out and come playoff time get to the finals and be happy we are there but that logic is utterly moronic... winning matters and with our current team and skill sets we have no shot of beating the warriors and a 25 percent shot at best of beating the celtics... Our best route is to further our guys because and here is the kicker genius... WE ARE GOING TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS ANYWAY... Why does the seeding matter exactly? 1 extra home playoff game? WOWOWOWOWOW... If we were out west then yes we would need to play smarter and actually worry about **** right now but we dont and we have the ability of doing whats best to further our guys while winning enough to still make the playoffs and give ourselves the best chance at beating the celtics and to do that we need further progression from fultz who is looking good right now over 1 extra home playoff game per series...

always but i also sacrifice pieces early on to win in the end. Thus progression/understanding where you are and understanding what you are playing against. Its all situations and like I stated above the long game is to sacrifice during the meaningless regular season to checkmate the king which is the celtics come the post season and to do that you cant just throw out your best moves early... Try to keep up and I will teach you a thing or 2.


Not once did i want the sixers to lose I just dont care about regular season wins because we will make the playoffs unless injuries... so tossing out the better lineup which has reddick like you want helps us now but not during the post season.. furthering fultz/saric and forcing ben to work on his shot opens up endless possibilities as the season goes on... Fultz is already learning/adjusting and progressing on the defensive end alone which is something he cant do from the bench if he is getting bench minutes.

BS you canít get better from the bench. You can get better from the bench, you can get better from scrimmages, you can get better by yourself. I used to master shots before I tried them in a game. Fultz is a cry baby millennial that wasnít man enough to show up for his team when he lost his shot. He hide, then he got gifted a spot he didnít earn. Dude should working his *** off to get respect and minutes. Itís acceptable in Philly though. They donít earn anything. Hopefully Joel leaves and goes to a franchise that deserves him

Well clearly he has earned something because Reddick one of the most respected in the league has his back and always tells it like it is... In fact literally everyone stated how he saved the game for them just last night and yes there are ways to get better but him coming off the bench and getting say 20 minutes a night at best will not get him better fast enough to warrant us standing a chance come playoff time... Again its chess not checkers... Starting him lets you see if him and simmons can play together and puts him against the other teams starters more often and helps his confidence which are all pluses. So far we have realized that him and ben starting helps because one goes to the bench a few minutes in and the other stays on the floor until the other comes back and then rests when the other comes back so you get the best of both worlds... The sixers need fultz to be to them what tatum was to the celtics last year and your general hate for the sixers which has been shown forever with simmons and now fultz is keeping blinders on you and not allowing you to understand or comprehend the overall situation.

Also there is countless other situations where a guy starts over another guy who probably doesnt deserve it... why is ball starting over rondo? Why was lou williams a bench piece for as long as he was? where is the line exactly? does winning matter most or does what you did in the past matter? dirk has started for way longer then he should have because of what he did in the past over guys that are actually better... Melo has been a starter for the lakers for years when he is a bench piece at best... Why do guys have to earn stuff on top teams but not on bad teams? You seem to just pick and choose arguments that make your case against the sixers because of the hate you have for the sixers.. I could go on with 100 more examples of guys starting that shouldnt that you have said nothing about up until now which is evidence in itself of your overall agenda.

Just last year Tatum was the starter as a rookie on a loaded celtics squad to start the season but you said nothing of that before even knowing how good he was and there were better players at the time on the roster who at least earned the right to start

Why was lou williams a bench piece for as long as he was? where is the line exactly? does winning matter most or does what you did in the past matter? dirk has started for way longer then he should have because of what he did in the past over guys that are actually better... Melo has been a starter for the lakers for years when he is a bench piece at best... Why do guys have to earn stuff on top teams but not on bad teams? You seem to just pick and choose arguments that make your case against the sixers because of the hate you have for the sixers.. I could go on with 100 more examples of guys starting that shouldnt that you have said nothing about up until now which is evidence in itself of your overall agenda.

Just last year Tatum was the starter as a rookie on a loaded celtics squad to start the season but you said nothing of that before even knowing how good he was and there were better players at the time on the roster who at least earned the right to start

Lou Williams comes off the bench so he can he a one option and volume shooter. It maximizes him and helps the team. Tatum and Ball both start bc they think it helps them win games. Your franchise just doesnít stop looking for a short cut.

lmfao what short cut? we arent a lottery team. The sixers start fultz because they want him to be their tatum and think he gives them the best shot and last night showed a glimpse of just that... Wanna try again? Reddick can shoot no doubt but fultz is better everywhere else... Reddick isnt a good defender nor does he drive the ball like fultz can.

Jeez, now he did earn it and gives them the best chance. You better hope these guys are natural born killers b/c Philly sure isn't instilling any toughness or accountability
