Lopez hasn't been good, but he's helped Porzingis' rebounding numbers like he did Aldridge

With all the talk about Kobe being washed and inefficient, what about Derrick Rose? Holy **** he's been bad.

Deitrick has looked terrible but let him have a few decent games and dudes in here will be saying "Drose is BYKE", "Chicago Bullies" etc.

Mavs trade: Chandler didn't want to be in NY anymore so a deal was imminent. Not a good move at all though.

Galloway: The lone bright spot from last year. Agreed about being nothing more than a solid backup.

Cavs trade: JR & Shump also didn't want to be here anymore. Phil said they weren't willing to learn & adapt so he got rid of them. Lance Thomas has actually been a solid player though. Gives 110% every time he's on the floor & does the dirty work not many guys want to do.

KP: Can't say enough good things about him. I was obviously one of the people to boo him on draft night but after watching video on him a couple days later I decided to let him play before I judge the pick. It's looked like a home run so far.

Hawks trade: THJr is what he is. An inefficent shooter & that's basically it. Grant hasn't looked great but he's a rookie PG. I think he'll end up being nothing more than a solid player, maybe a starter.

Afflalo: Low risk, low reward move. He will most likely opt out after this season but he's been an average player this season. Gives us another guy that can get a bucket when needed.

KOQ: Was in Fisher's doghouse for 2 weeks for Kevin ******* Seraphin for whatever reason. I like him a lot, especially at 4/$16M. The whole bench plays better & with more energy when he's on the floor. Nice shooting touch for a big & can make passes other bigs usually can't.

Lopez: Hasn't been good at all. I expect Phil to move him before next season & we'll go with KP at the 5. He slows down the offense & the ball tends to stick in his hands in the low post. Rarely plays in crunch time cause KP at the 5 with Melo at the 4 is our best lineup.

DWill: Brings energy & pace to a slow offense. Fisher hasn't given him consistent minutes but when he plays he's done good things. He gets lost on defense too much for my liking.

Vujacic: **** him. I thought Phil brought him in to have more of a coaching role but he legit gets minutes over Grant/Galloway sometimes. I absolutely hated every second he's been on the floor.

--

Phil built a solid roster capable of a low playoff seed. It's up to Fisher to get the most out of what he's given & put guys in a position to succeed, which he hasn't.

great assessment

i don't think bill kennedy "used" this opportunity to do anything. used this opportunity is such a bad choice of words - like it's bill kennedy who did wrong by coming out rather than rondo for using those slurs and perpetuating the venom directed at this particular ref.

 

should he have kept quiet and continue to take this kind of abuse from players & coaches? of course it's personal when you attack someone this way.

 

it's perfectly ok to shame someone who has gone out of their way to degrade you in that manner.

this may sound insensitive but i dont mean it that way. why do people still need to come out and explain their life choices? like who cares, you're gay that's awesome. you shouldn't be ashamed or feel the need to announce it to the world. you should be accepted regardless of which orientation you are.

Because cats still feel comfertable calling people ******* at their job.laugh.gif

If doesn't come out this Rondo thing goes away quietly, by coming out he puts pressure on the NBA to stop this from happening. Because Rondo probably aint the first to call him that.

yeah but it doesn't go down like that most of the time. whether you think that ref coming out was necessary or not is irrelevant to this whole thing. that's his decision and his reasons for doing so should be respected or at the very, very least not be viewed with any air of skepticism or derision.

 

the focus should be placed on rondo who verbally attacked this ref very likely knowing about his sexual identity. that's the kind of thing you just don't do. that has nothing at all with being "PC" or whatever. that has everything to do with being a decent human being

Honestly

The timing is all bs.....

This happened a week ago in Mexico right

He's been 1/2 out the closet for years since basically everybody in the NBA knew

But you feel the need to come out now????

Why not last yr when Plamer the female ref came out why not piggyback then... Or it was all planned to wait this long between them coming out & the rondo thing just kinda happened 😐

Way to be wrong.... He's had a couple decent games & that hasn't happened because outside of those few games he's been ***... Made he comes around maybe not ... It's the wait n see time now...

Coming out is not an easy thing to do....it's a cesspool where you feel you will be unwanted among many of your peers, yet you are a rock star in the media who want to latch on to you and do 14 trillion stories until you can't take it any more. It's such a cycle of emotions that it's still hard to just be yourself and fit in with everyone.

I just can't wait until we are all over this and no one cares either way anymore. It's going to take another generation or two to happen though.

We may not even be alive by the time "coming out" is not considered a big thing. For all we know, it could still be some huge issue 100 years from now.

Agree. For all the progress with tolerance that his been made in some segments of society, we still have things like the Westboro Baptist Church. Still a long, long way to go.

And hard to say things are getting better. This morning every public school in LA County is being closed due to a bomb threat. Crazy times we live in. Stay safe out there NT bros.

like i alluded earlier, the ref coming out of the closet is sort of irrelevant. he has his reasons. those reasons may or may not have anything to do with rondo's verbal attack (though they most likely appears to be that way). if his reason(s) was to bring attention to the homophobic slurs being directed at him by rondo it doesn't take away from the seriousness of this issue and it certainly doesn't make kennedy some kind of grandstanding dude who's just seeking attention. it's not on him. it's all on rondo

it also depends on the industry

When asked about emerging technology's impact on sports, the Cavaliers forward said, "Can it make me shoot better? Huh? Can they put a chip in my arm where I can shoot like Steph Curry? If not, I don't care about it."

is that you adam silver...... that's bs

timing is everything in this day & age

the flamer pulled a power move cuz he knew the light was on em.....

why is "pulling a power move" and bringing added coverage to an issue like this seen as a bad thing?

 

progress will never happen without power moves

He definitely used the opportunity; at least in my opinion.  He used the PC shield to get this out.

 

Why was there emphasis on this particular word?  Do you really think Kennedy took it personal?  Him coming out and given the outcome of the situation, shows that he did. However, I'm sure he's heard his fair share of words in his years of officiating, so why now?

 

I think refs or anyone shouldn't be subjected to verbal abuse in any shape or form either.  

 

I really wanna see what Adrian Worj. from Yahoo asked Kennedy.  These sports writer would pry to get a story.
