Here's the link:

Its interesting to see some actual science behind the idea that the NBA schedule includes too many games. It makes me wonder though why there were seemingly fewer major injuries during periods in the past when travel was more difficult and they sometimes played as many as three games in three nights.

It's said that they play harder now.

Seriously though...Of course I think about that being a Wolves fan, and despite it being unlikely, just think of how quickly that team would rise. KD and Towns, with Wiggins providing some scoring and Rubio distributing to all...they'd have all the other nice little assets to round out a good looking team.



*Wakes up and wipes drool off of chin*

I've wanted a star to team up with a team with a ton of good young players instead of just teaming up with other established vets for a while now. LeBron almost did it when he came back to Cleveland til he shipped out Wiggins and Bennett. I'd like to see Durant or some other big name with a young group of guys like the Wolves, Magic, Celtics or Sixers.

People are just too young to remember Yao and they neglect the Rockets. The Rockets of today are made up with garbage guys and are less impressive fools that disgrace the franchie. Gone are the Mobley, Franchise, Yao, Whittaker Flapping Eye TMAC days. Yao is definitely a HOF. He was a pioneer and even though China took his money, he still played!! He abused a lot of bigs, got crossed over plenty of times, but had dropped numerous silk road jumpahs on guys. He even did a crounching tiger, hidden dragon on Shaq. Shaq and Yao were neck in neck, with Yao potentially being up there.

Giant tall dudes like Dirk, Porzingus and any over sized youth proally had Yaos poster in their clear binder behind Shaq. Why? Cuz Yao could shoot for a big man. Its just sad, they dont wanna recognize him.

I hear how bigs wanna be versatile and shoot like Dirk, but no one wants to be fat like Shaq.

He was the brucelee of basketball.

I suppose. And on average the players are bigger and more athletic, which would make the physical impact of each game more significant. Still, I find it strange that injuries rates are increasing when training techniques and travel method are superior to what they used to be.

They don't make humans like they used to

Somehow these lazy dudes who don't play any defense are playing harder than AI did?

I feel like it was a much more physically demanding game 10-20 years ago when there were so many more handchecks and bugs that would punish you if you went into the paint.

Garbage guys and disgrace today, but then you mention extremely talented underachievers. Some would say that's a disgrace as well.


And I'm still trying to figure out how either are in your argument to justify Yao being in the HOF.

To counter that, the defenses and offenses are more intricate and the skill sets are probably more advanced today. To go along with Ldoggs point of players about of today.
So that may contribute to the NBA being tougher to play in, in its current form.

Yao probably gets in the Basketball HOF, but not NBA HOF. NBA HOF would take in consideration his ambassador stuff and simple speculation of career trajectory had it not been for injury.

ThunderCat and Paul already took care of that other mess HotRoute was talking about laugh.gif

I think Yao Ming is for sure a HOFer.

I'm surprised Kevin Johnson is a Finalist though.

Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley didn't win a ring either. Your Argument is invalid if you put championship Ring as a requirement to be a HoF.
Yao was a deserved allstar and in todays soft nba league he would be even better unless the coach only wants to play small ball.

 In Toronto with ESPN Radio, Kevin Durant addressed the possibility of signing a short-term contract this summer to, in essence, delay his free agency one year and put himself on the same track with teammate Russell Westbrook. "Actually that's probably one of the first times I've heard that one, but, no , I haven't really thought about it, man. I'm just, with [coming back from] injury and just getting back to playing again, I haven't thought about contracts or free agency or none of that stuff at all. ... I really haven't thought about that one. I guess I have to."Marc Stein

Some Warriors Think They'll Sign Kevin Durant In Free Agency
 

The Golden State Warriors are considered the most likely destination for Kevin Durant should he leave the Oklahoma City Thunder in the offseason.

"He is definitely not out of Oklahoma City. If they win it this year, most likely he stays.

"There are people in Golden State who think they're getting him. There are people in management and I think some players too. Kevin Durant likes the way they play. He likes their style, he likes the fact they play unselfishly. He sees himself fitting into that group."

Broussard says Durant's attraction to the Warriors goes beyond just improving his odds of winning a championship and to the way the Warriors play the game.

"'This is the style I'd like to play for the rest of my career,'" said Broussard in an attempt to illustrate Durant's thinking.
