So up and down. Watching them gives me headaches some nights. Hopefully we can run off some wins and get up there.

I thought so as well. What do you think their problem is? Consistency? Thin bench?

I haven't watched any of their games so I wouldn't know.

Feel the same way about him.. but he is only 20, though. His handle is still very suspect, he gets tunnel vision a lot when the ball gets to him. His rebounding is pretty awful, he's playing the 2 and he has the size and leaping ability over damn near everyone at that position. He tends to fall asleep on team defense at times. I'm pretty sure his rebounding is down from last year, same with his 3pt%.. maybe even his assist. His scoring is up I guess.

 

He didn't make that "leap" I thought he'd make, but I think he eventually figures everything out. He'll become a good rebounder, not sure his passing will ever be great.

 

Ask me about KAT? he got it all

Players usually start making that leap in the 3rd year I think? So maybe he'll make that leap next year.

also Monroe killed their defense & they lost key players like ZaZa, Jared Dudley, & Ersan Ilyasova

Brandon Knight was a boarderline all star last year with the Bucks. they traded him to save a few dollars for what seemed like decent talent (MCW), but that clearly wasn't the case. And that few dollars they saved ended up going to an ill fitted Monroe.

I never believed in an offensive Center who is a liability on Defence. That's why as a Sixers fan I think Noel > Jah. Okafor should be the one to get traded yet, we keep hearing Noel's name. mean.gif

Depends on how you determine who's better. The West has the better teams at the top. The East has better teams overall top to bottom. 5 teams in the West haven't won 20 games this year. Only two haven't in the East. When we compare the conferences doesn't that mean both as a whole or only the top?

To provide context the Warriors have 8 games vs the Lakers and Suns. Cleveland has 8 vs the Bucks and Pistons. Those teams are the bottom of their divisions. I never hear the LeBron beats up on the weak teams narrative associated with Curry. That's what I meant awhile back about a change in narrative.

It is totally consistency. One game we will look like a true top 4 east team, beat the Warriors, beat the Cavs and then lose to the Nuggets, Brooklyn and get blown out by Boston like we do not even belong on the floor.

The bench is actually pretty good in my opinion. Baynes has shocked the **** out of me with his ability to finish around the rim and rebound. Jennings coming of is a great scoring threat at PG, Stanley Johnson also is growing into his own and Tolliver does not give you much else but he can still stretch the floor and shoot the 3 ball at a high percentage.

I think they are just all still learning how to win in this league. Hopefully second half we can make a push for top 5 seed.

Looking at who's on top, I think it's a total possibility. If Atlanta trades one of their PGs and maybe even Horford (slight chance, but still a possibility) then Atlanta will fall. I can see them beating Indiana so 5-6 is very realistic.

i really hope one day boogie spazzes while they play the nuggets and he tries that **** on michael malone. So MM can place the hands of god on him once and for all. MM aint scared of ****. son was finna finna catch a murder-death-kill on blake a couple months ago.

IDK how you game plan to stop him if you're the opposing team. Maybe be physical/deliver a hard hit and rattle him a little?

Shoot him in the shoulders, elbows and wrists

I want to be a fan of the guy but he's seriously hella immature. Dude is talented as hell and pretty fun to watch but dude's a idiot. I also heard he was "offended" that the Kings were doing a Year of the Monkey thing and dude found a way to make it a race thing. indifferent.gif

you never hear about it because it's not true and only half a season has been played for people could even entertain the idea. Lebron has been in the leastern conference his entire career. how is that hard for anyone to comprehend that?

what's the east vs west record famb

Why does the Washington coach have a patch over his eye?

 

Why is boston going to have home court in the first round?

 

Why is portland in the 8th seed?

 

NBA Season all kinds of weird

You say his whole career. So how about Wade, is he also fraud? Not really that good because he played in the East his whole career. Your question was East vs West and you skipped my entire post for the last part. Do you determine what conference is better based off just the top or as a whole? Of those West contenders GS has only played one game against SA. Who are they beating if the East is weak and SA and OKC are the only competition. Warriors fans are so quick to talk down on the rest of the league it devalues what they are doing by calling the rest of the NBA weak.

i was just telling somebody the other day about this. the only way to play 2k and truly play as curry to to think and have a mind just like his. impossible. dude is about as unpredictable as they come. he does stuff that would get you benched by coaches. like literally every typical curry shot, is considered a yolo jr smith shot, except they go in lol. That's literally the only difference. Wardell's numbers will always be better than the 2k counterpart because the developers can't recreate his tendencies without being able to get in his head and seeing what he sees. dude is water, he just flows. There's no real set plan, which is why it's so hard to guard him. Every game is drunken monkey style lol. 2k def gon have to add in the 30+ foot cheese next year for him though.

ESPN this morning was saying its getting to the point where nba players might have to start fouling curry lolol 

 

just amazing to watch this kid play dude really just pulls up and shoots. If it was anyone else coaches would be heated as well as players but he earned the right to just shoot

2k Curry is not realistic. They're not letting me hit 30 footers in people's faces wtf

I be trying 25 footers in transition

I don't understand why they're not going in

lol you're the only one in this whole damn thread who thinks east>>>>west

im pretty sure there other people besides warriors fans who thought for the longest damn the East was inferior than the West. i didn't even bring lebron into the equation lol you did. and we all know why you were playing the east vs west card. cause your team is sum frauds and you wanted a reason to give as to why they suck.


if the west and east had a playoff format in which the 1st seed west vs 1st east, 2nd seed west vs 2nd east, etc. I'm willing to bet west wins at the bare minimum of 6 of those playoff match ups. plegihboi you have the raptors as 2nd seed and the celtics as 4th in your conference and you were bragging? FOH b. and you didn't answer my question, what's the east vs west record. I'm pretty sure we both know the west is in the lead.

If Curry improves again next yr, it's really just time to shut down the whole nba

Or at least kick the Warriors out of the league
