2015-2016 NBA Regular Season - MDA to HOU - All-NBA - Harden snubbed - Anthony Davis is broke - Page 1959

Right.....

I'm not comparing the 20-year old version of one and the 25-year old version of the other. I'm saying Kyrie and LA would've been just as good as Dame and LA even if Kyrie didn't make the playoffs by himself in the East 2-3 years ago when it was him and Waiters, Thompson, etc.

Damn, seeing Delonte that way.  I guess NBA players do go broke.

post #58743 of 93193

But what I said last week or so still rings true.

 

Damian Lillard has been awfully impressive this year. I assumed his scoring would see an uptick, but I felt like his efficiency would take a nosedive. He already (coming into this season) was an irrational 3 pt shooter who took A LOT of bad ones but to see his usage spike up like crazy and for him to remain relatively efficient, it's dope to see. Expanding as a playmaker as well this season.

 

And, they're winning.

Dame Dolla is the Gilbert Arenas of his generation.

I DVR'd the Lenny Cooke documentary and watched it this morning.

Just holy ******* ****. Drinking Smirnoff Ice on camera, police coming and cameras still filming, getting paid for autographs on camera where you actually catch the exchange and the girl deadpans the camera, talking "hair tousle"-type stuff about Melo because he played better than him in that one game, signing the autograph and telling the kid his name was Lenny and the best...


Sean Miller mic'd up, caught in the stands talking to one of his assistants about how the night before -- a day before Cooke played an A.M. game with scouts throughout -- he walked right past Cooke at 4:30 a.m. walking through one of the Vegas clubs.

I suppose 28-27 is winning ball, but that's offensive to standards tbh. I'm not saying you have to be down on him or the season (even with the Jazz right on POR/HOU's heels) but where is Dame over the long haul going to take this realistically, and if he's not taking it anywhere important then nearly everyone on the roster should be available to talk about in trade discussions. Just talk if something comes up or for inquiring re: someone else's interest in a big trade - Great win vs. GSW, really, but I just see purgatory unless McCollum turns out to be really special but yeah I don't know about that. He's a great scorer and is young at that, but this seems like a situation that could result in them being stuck in the middle or topping out at a sixth seed for years.

And I feel like that's where you've been for a decade. Four seed one year maybe? did it rise higher than that ever in the most recent era?

He's a garbage coach tho

I don't think he's been "stampeding" at all, as he never said anything wrong

He definitely is a trash coach though. Love him as a commentator/analyst, but as a coach he's abysmal, and very much instilled that same style in JBB and the rest of that staff.

Late pass on the Vince Carter interview, but it's really good

Wonder who the Blazers will target in FA this summer
Leonard/Crabbe are free agents and McCullom/Plumlee are eligible for extensions this summer.

Granted they could/are expendable.

I wish he would focus more on the game and less on adidas and State Farm commercials + rap. Drop the IG and pick up the tennis ball

This is a joke right?

No. Dude whines about being an all star snub more than he attempts to improve his game.
He's still a hell of a player he just needs to cut out the primadonna BS.
Needs to go on the Steph trademarked bouncing a tennis ball blindfolded naked on fire with two basketballs and one hand tied behind his back workout.

Winning the Southeast is a long shot. I definitely see them getting a playoff spot. Defense has been much better lately, finally a healthy roster managing Beals minutes and Morris is a upgrade over Humph and Blair. If we go 3-1 over the next 4 before playing Cleveland we'll be in great shape.

Now that I think about it more, I wonder if the Blazers will regret being this good in three years a la the Suns.

Kyrie scores 55

"Lol who said dame was better than Kyrie"

Dame score 51

"Lol who said Kyrie was better than Dame"

AD drags the Pelicans into the playoffs

"Best player in the NBA"

Pelicans miss the playoffs

"AD is overrated"

Never seen something more accurate on NT

Happens in the playoffs too

Home team wins Game 1

"Oh this is gonna be easy. They're gonna win in 4 or 5"

Home team loses Game 2

"They're gonna regret losing HC. Series is over in 5 or 6"

Home team loses Game 3

"They didn't take advantage of stealing homecourt. It's over"

Damn you were serious.
I can't debate this and I'm not for or against what you think but it did shock me.

Here's why: When the Kings were hot this year and knocking of everyone and Rondo was a nightly DD and Boogie was just doing whatever he wanted to whoever...well Portland had just finished beating like the Mavs (not sure if Mavs) in a Double OT or something and during the post game on court interview the reporter asks Dame....

Reporter: So Dame, you had a big game and have a 3 day break coming up, how does it feel to get a win like this with rest coming, you and the mates going to hit the town tonight? (Loose quote)

Dame: Party? We have the Kings coming up next who are on fire, I'm going to go right home and watch the game tapes on Rondo and company: that's my only concern

I find it hard to believe he doesn't put in  more than his own fair share of work nah mean.

Can't confirm, just my outlook

Dame has been improving, but I think dude could be better than he is right now if he wasn't such an Instagram dude.
Lamarcus has improved since he deleted his social media. I think the same would benefit a lot (especially younger) players.
A lot of it I blame on the surrounding team though. We're not built in any way to contend right now beyond Dame and Urkel. I don't know what our goal is, free agency?

More impressed with CJ this season.

Warriors gave up the most points in regulation of any defending champion since 1986. In 86 it was the Warriors doing it against the Lakers.

You know, the one thing I took from that interview was when Smitty said somthing like  'you're the one who killed the Dunk contest, no Superstar wanted in it at that time because they didn't want to face you'

 

By the time Carter was done Dunking I could only imagine the new Superstars had grown used to saying "Stars don't do the Dunk Contest nomo" and with that they didn't have to 1. Do it and 2. Be embarrassed if they lost.

 

We all dog Lebby for never doing it but, at some point the Stars before him made it okay to never try never fail? Just a thought

It's funny how dudes were dogging lavine for doing similar dunks and jumping from inside the line when Vince literally did the same dunk from two different angles, another dunk Kobe had already done years before, a pretty basic between the legs and finished it off with an inside the free throw line dunk, but his dunks were considered the greatest.

Most overrated dunk contest champ ever
post #58769 of 93193
All i know is that Aaron Gordon was robbed and he was cool for using props. Lavine was impressive as well. That half time, no look dunk was good as well.
