This is mostly all wrong. Draymond is not nearly as effective a post scorer as Blake is. He doesn't shoot the mid-range jumper as well. And Draymond sure as hell isn't Mosgov-ing anybody. So, to say that Draymond can do everything Blake can is false.

You're also wrong about what Draymond supposedly can do that Blake can't. For example, you're also wrong that Blake can't guard fives. He does it all the time and pretty effectively. He also handles the ball and make plays all the time. Did you not watch the San Antonio series last year? Blake was the point forward in a lot of the situation. He averaged close to a triple double in that series.

You don't like Blake, which is fine. You can also make an argument that Draymond is the better player (which you do, every chance you get). But the supposed gap between them is not nearly as big as you suggest.

If Durant leaves Oklahoma City, add the Thunder to the list, with a potential reunion with Parsons' coach at Florida, Billy Donovan.

Teams gonna line up to kick out 100milly to Parsons? ..... Idk man.
he is not worth 100 mil

Agreed. Blake has improved so much.

Dray gets bailed out by his two shooting buddies.

I think if you ask Draymond to be a #1 option on offense night in and night out, your team is gonna have some struggles on that end. That's not what he's suited for.

No Lawson to Knicks.

When you have a bum coach tell you not to go for a PG and your current PGs are Calderon and Vucacic, that's rock bottom.

"The New York Knicks held internal discussions about signing Ty Lawson but have decided not to pursue him. Lawson previously had a poor relationship with Brian Shaw, who remains a confidant of Phil Jackson."

And what's with Phil surrounding himself with bum coaches??

He gets an A (so far) for draft. a B+ for trading/ singing players but an F for coaching staff.

I don't want Decline LeBron in my life. Seriously, am I the only one who thinks he could hang them up within three years if he fails to win a title while continuously coming so close, putting multiple 8+ month seasons on his body like in Miami but with no meaningful payoff?

I could envision the scenario where like two or three straight Finals appearances 2015-2016-2017 with little Eastern Conference resistance but b2b2b losses to West teams may be too much for him personally, and might end his run earlier than we all may think, as it becomes apparent his game is sliding and there's not enough left around him - at least the way the team's built currently - to ever get over the only hump that matters. Not that LeBron doesn't have the overall skillset that caters to team involvement and he's a terrific passer, but we all saw what happened with Kobe and FA the last two years when all of his peers had already cast aside the notion of teaming up with him because it wouldn't lead to winning.

You know, the hump that matters, as in the awkward thing LeBron throws out in commercials that'll always be there if he's not able to actually do it, 'YOU KNOW IT'S ALL ABOUT GETTIN ONE FOR THE LAND.'

Imagine how much worse lj is going to be next year. I always told dudes he wouldnt last as a great player past his mid 30s.

You guys confuse basketball opinion as hatred or not liking someone. I don't dislike blake. at all. i dont love draymond either, i just think he is better. but i dont have any dislike for either player.


there's really only like 1 player that I dislike in the league and that that chocha in ohio. everybody else that i may clown here n there, it's playful.


oh, i dont like da white either. f that dude. that's about it though.

This was the year for a quality team to get by LeBron in the East. Toronto still may do it. Others lurking. If Chicago had Thibs right now would they be in the conversation?

You're right.

 

Clips have actually scored more with Blake out than when Blake was there. 

 

But what I'm saying is Blake went out at game 30. Tonight will be game 60. A lot changes in 30 games. A team isn't a finished product at game 30, especially with 10 new parts. The scoring uptick was going to come with Blake. It just so happens that it's now coming without blake. Blake played in almost 70 games last year and the Clips had the best offense in the league. It's not like they're offensively inept with him in the lineup.

Hawks shot 13-17 (77%) with Green on the bench tonight

They shot 38% with Green on the court

Also, CP has really elevated his game to an MVP level since Blake has been out and JJ is having a career shooting year, after a fairly slow start. When those two aren't in the game the team doesn't score very well at all.

Having Blake back will improve the number of ways they can score and will take some of the pressure off CP to always be making plays.

It is very curious to me how over the past couple of seasons, it appears that BOTH Paul and Blake play better without the other.
