    I like the move for LAL but they need more. Not sure if they can get anything for Westy

    Kind of amazed he hasn't made a move to add a PF who could take some minutes from PJ before now.
    Kuzma would be nice

    From Bogut:

    One thing that was crazy about that run was the ******* that I used to get away with screening, man it was all time.

    I knew if I was in Milwaukee and I set that Id foul out in the first quarter, but playing in Golden State, when they started to become that underdog team that was building up, I knew once Steph or Klay got hot, the refs would be in the moment as well.

    I could literally clothesline someone off the next pindown, I know Klay just hit 3 in a row, the crowds on their feet as hes getting his 4th and I could punch somebody in the face on a screen, knock em out and they wouldnt call it. Klay would get his 4th 3, and even the refs would go Wow (and ignore it), it was crazy.

    Then I get traded to Dallas to set those same screens and Id get 3 fouls in the first quarter, It was just crazy with the stuff I used to get away with there.

    Westbrook will still cost picks to move. I think that ship has sailed.

    Washington has made it clear they plan to re-sign him.

    Yep. Bogut was brutal. It's also a really poorly written rule. Screens and picks are very poorly officiated across the NBA. It's rare to see a non-moving screen these days. Another thing Bogut did was the slide turn under shooters when the shot went up so he'd be facing away from them when he created contact and officials wouldn't call it. That is still common across the NBA even with the added "landing zone" rules ... if a shooter has a good defender on them their landing zone is never clear.

    I remember a last 2 minutes report that included a "missed" call where Embiid literally held a driving offensive players arm down so they couldn't shoot in a close game. Calls are going to get missed since it's impossible for the refs to see everything happening, and naturally they are going to give players they know most the benefit of the doubt (or hold it against them).

Interesting hate filled take by you with 0 substance... My take was actually legit. Lowry is awful and nobody will take that contract. DR barely plays and when he does he is awful... 6/2 on 36/33 shooting while making 16/18/19/19 million going forward.

    Cant wait for you guys to give herro the max LMFAO

    Oh also were 19/4 in our last 23 games ... again our big 4 has played together like 8 times.. You need to kiss lebrons feet because if not for him your franchise would be a joke.
    Why are you only 4.5 games ahead of the Heat with all that? A team that doesn't have one PF on the entire register roster and 6 of the 9 core rotation players missed 10 games or more?

    Will you permaban yourself if Philly exits before the conference Finals? How could anyone kiss LeBron's feet when you're occupying front and center bruising your tonsils? Just shut up and stop replying to me or mentioning Miami.

    I agree. They will likely try to get better while shedding money. Expect some 2nds and likely Thybulle to be the cost.

Be it mental, effort, leadership, along with the physical....something has changed.
    Hes declined physicallynot as quick or as fast and cant jump as high, but even after that decline, hes still fast, strong and big and smarter every year and when his shot is falling he still is freakish enough and smart enough to be unstoppable. Yes he has declined, and yet hes still good enough to be a top 5 player in the NBA. His motor is the biggest decline and its why he cant single handedly win every game. When he had the energy to make every play, hed go make every play that needed to be made in order to win the game be it a block, a rebound, a defensive stop. He cant do those things at that level, now hes just a normal unstoppable player, when before he was unstoppable and the GOAT because he could do and guard and score on anyone at any time the team needed it
