    This is why Miles Bridges won MVP:

    "The lead was 12 midway through the third quarter when the U.S. bench went on a 27-5 run to turn the game around, with 21 of the 27 points being scored by...

    Barrett was on the losing team. Paschall scored a lot but didn't do much else. Bridges was key to the US bench absolutely destroying the World's bench. I actually watched the entire game, I have...

    Obviously Trae Young, but also Jarrett Allen and Ja Morant. I understand why John Collins was left off considering he's been suspended for half the season. I'd like to see Brandon Clarke, Terence...

    I have always maintained that if the Pacers could have traded PG for Butler straight up I would have done it in a heartbeat. Butler has always been the better player outside of his rookie year. ...

    I mean, this is exactly what people say when they commit sunk cost fallacies. "I know it may have been a bad idea, but we're too far in now to reverse course" and "if we just commit more resources,...

    I'm actually happy OKC is still intact. They're the feel-good, Cinderella story of the year and I want to see them make some noise in the playoffs.

    I feel like I had almost this exact same conversation about Melo when he went to Houston. Voting awards don't mean anything. Versatility is not necessarily better than being REALLY good at a couple...

    Metrics tend to love elite 3 and D guys because they only take the most efficient shots by design. They do not love Covington, because he's not elite. He's a decent starter. He's net positive but...

    At the point Covington is a Rocket, Capela isn't. So when Clint was on the team, he was their only tradeable player. That's some weird logic to try and consider them both Rocket players at the same...

    What doesn't make sense is continuing to throw good money after bad. This is textbook sunk cost fallacy. I don't think Covington makes the Rockets any better than just moving Capela to the bench...

    Westbrook and Gordon are half the cap. I'd hold Capela until you can move him with one of those. 2/3 of the Rockets guard minutes shoot 53%TS or under. The other 1/3 is Harden. It'd be addition by...

    Rockets are better offensively with Capela off the floor, it makes up for what they lose defensively. This is a D'Antoni team after all.

    Imo they traded the best player for a better fit for what...

    Not as far of a fall, but Tyreke Evans two years ago was probably one of the biggest free agent names that wasn't a max contract. Last year he was a dumpster fire. This year he's suspended...

    Total body of work this year, Sabonis. Brogdon is the better player but missed a ton of games and played with a jacked up shooting hand, screwing up his percentages. Turner's probably more valuable...

    Suns and Pels have the cap to get him with a little help (prob from Atlanta or Memphis), and it would make sense for either team. Hawks would be my dark horse, that would be a fun team to watch. But...
