Hopefully, he learned from his mistakes. laugh.gif Plus, weren't there some issues going on in Indy's locker room around that time?

82 games in a season and there's so much to the asisst stat that is unaccounted for. you have to actually get reps doing something usually.

RWB has gotten praise since day 1 with a super green light and isn't nearly as natural a scorer. and averaged 5-6 assists early in his career with a green light to run the team as a PG.


Just don't be so nearsighted with stats, I guess in summary.

I.e. U don't know what you're talking about. Kyrie has NEVER been the distributor that Russ is and he's been a point his entire life. Russ had to learn the position coming in to the league. Bron would be a valid excuse if he'd been anywhere near a decent distributor prior. Stop it

Kyrie is just a really undersized shooting guard

lowkey contradicting yourself here, and with the Bron statement, Kyrie improved in assists every year he's played basketball since college. His growth in that area literally declined when Bron showed up.

Pistons blow. Team is buns and not even fun to watch. Reggie overpaid. #TeamWallStar...lol.


Warriors lowkey getting boring for yall to watch too? Like, I like that they're winning, but the story always seems the exact same.

Struggle struggle, or early spaz, 3 pointer 3 pointer 3 pointer, 10 point game...20 point game...30 point game...50 footer...halftime...BS the 3rd quarter...then goat defense/offense in the 4th...win.

Repeat.



Not their fault, just way it goes. Squad is a Juggarnaut. And errbody else is just errbody else. I legit do not see a serious threat to them in the entire league. Only thing that can stop them now is injury. Team can literally coast and beat you by 30 smh lol.

Lakers tho...

I still think there isnt five players in the league with more talent than kyrie

-I hate how lance was potrayed here in LA. He played very well for us, was a great teammate,the total opposite of a malcontent. He was basically exactly what he is with memphis now. Iike erupt said watching lance and beas do well right now does my heart good. I remember like in 2012 or so, watching beas run sprints at SMC's football field at like 6am for 7 weeks straight. Just crazy how a narrative can build on a player and stay with him for an entire career.

This.

thing is and this is real life, if they match up to a somewhat healthy clippers team, they can lose again. Playoffs are less about who is best and more about matchups. Blake would still be unstoppable against them.

no team is beating gsw before the wcf, but spurs can take a quick L if they just face a squad with young energetic guys.

I dunno about the Clippers being able to beat the Spurs this year if they were to meet up. Spurs have an improved bench this year. Last year it took the Clips 7 games and a game winner from CP to win.
But who knows. Anything is unpredictable.

Like I've said on here repeatedly, Lance literally did nothing wrong during his time in LA . . . except not having emerged from Doc's wife's womb.

I don't necessarily want to blame Austin for Lance getting traded, but they do fill very similar roles and Lance is pretty much better than Austin in every way. Yet Austin is the one who is still, so . . .

talent as far as what? handles and scoring? sure. he's ultra elite. but theres more to basketball than that. his dribbling and scoring talent doesnt have him in the top ten. much less top 5. but talent wise, sure, he's talented.

If we're gonna continue to label Kyrie a scorer then Wall is a scorer. John averages more points then Kyrie.

Blake isn't coming back until April. Even if he's 100% healthy, it leaves very little time for him to get reintegrated with the team, get in game shape, get his timing back, etc. before the playoffs start. For that reason, I don't see us having a realistic shot of challenging either GSW or SAS in the playoffs.

john wall does other things tho, if kyrie has an off shooting night he's relatively worthless.

Indeed sir. We won the season series 3-1. I had hoped for a playoff matchup. Now I hope we get the 7 seed so we play Toronto. I don't believe in them. Party outside the arena, GM runs his yap, 4-0 sweep. Rinse repeat.

Only way for Clippers to have a realistic shot of making the finals is if Curry/Klay and Kawhi gets injured.
And that's if the Clippers don't suffer any major setbacks.

Reggie Jackson not a #1 guy that you can build a team around and take you to the promised land....wowsers. I personally am flabbergasted by this. >D

Man I got drilled for saying this last year. People thought he was a stud because of that one game against memphis. Props to him for improving his 3 point range tho, gotta say I never expected that to happen.
