    Yeah, I just don't think there's a strong case to be made for VanVleet, Young, Morant, DeRozan or Ball as better basketball players than Embiid. Like, if you're telling me those five guys are better,...

    Real talk: I would rather have Simmons making a fool of himself off the court and not playing a single minute than Westbrook making a fool of himself and my franchise on the court and getting...

    That's what I believe, too. It's why I don't blame him for the implosion of the Rockets franchise even if some other fans do. He was the GM, so ultimately he deserves some blame, but if your options...

    Yeah, surely you just forgot about Embiid, right? Like I could understand if you subjectively have him lower than some of these guys, but I don't know how any NBA fan could think Ball and VanVleet...

    I seriously wouldn't sleep on Sengun. He hasn't been given remotely enough playing time behind Wood, but if Wood gets traded at the deadline (as all Rockets fans hope for) and he gets starter's...

    I mean, do you blame them? Simmons may be a headache on an overpaid contract, but Westbrook is a minus on the floor on probably one of the 3-4 worst contracts in the whole league. Also, I think Morey...

    To be fair, though, OKC has been in rebuild mode for a hell of a lot longer than Houston. George and Westbrook were traded in the 2019 offseason, but it hasn't even been a full calendar year since...

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    So true! He was the primary reason, IMO, why the Rockets lost that series to the Lakers. It's almost like they completely forgot that series ever happened or how atrocious he...

    The current Nets are 100% a super team on paper. The problem is that they can't get all three guys on the floor for consistent stretches of a season. If all three had been healthy, they almost...

    It's kind of a cop out answer, but I think I'd rather have Gobert in the regular season and Mitchell in the playoffs. Over an 82-game season, give me the absurdly consistent defensive anchor. In the...

    I can't sit here and pretend like I've watched a lot of non-Rockets basketball this season, because I haven't. But from what I've caught and what the numbers show, most of your lists seem right. One...

    I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make. Obviously his father's name is Kevin Porter. The point I'm making here is that this guy should have known that his dad ISN'T the former NBA...

    Yeah, at least the guy apologized. But I kinda think that was an avoidable mistake. Like, I don't expect that opposing teams' announcers are going to do a ton of background work on the team they're...

    Most NBA teams in today's NBA have two solid playmakers and primary ballhandlers. Look at the championship teams of the last few years and most of those squads had two above average creators, not...

    As someone who watched the bulk of Harden's prime, literally hundreds of games watching him run an offense—yes, I do think he's a good playmaker. There's nothing I can say to convince you otherwise...

    Again, I don't think anyone is saying KPJ has played well this season or even that he played great last night. Just a big moment from a kid who's struggling and coming off of a really poor personal...

    So let's take a look at those numbers. In the six games since he's been back, he's averaging:

    20.5 points on 13.8 FGA, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals in 30 minutes per game with...

    Wood and Turner are very, very different players, certainly on the defensive end. I don't care what team Wood is on; he will never play defense anywhere close to Turner's level.

    So just as a recap, KPJ gets into a verbal altercation with his coach at halftime and then leaves the arena in the middle of the game. Amid calls for him to get cut, he gets suspended for a game....

    :hi5: Thanks, man! Too many people today are unwilling to admit when they're wrong. I have no problem being self deprecating and admitting to my own mistakes.

    OK, but for you then, the definition has nothing to do with the volume of talent or how it performs together. It's a definition based on a completely different industry. While I get where you're...

    I was speaking broadly. See my prior definition a page or two ago. But for me, at minimum, a "super team" should consist of:
    1. Two All-NBA caliber players in the top 10-12 players in their...

    Cool. So we're only going to look at a sample size of 10 years versus the entire history of the league? Good to know. Look man, we've covered this at length, but suffice it to say that you and I are...

    Yeah, I don't think that how a team formed should have any bearing on whether a squad is a super team or not. It should be about the talent on the floor, how productive they are and how they perform...
