NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

Recommended Posts

Cavs need to move TT and the Nets pick for DeAndre Jordan. I've defended Thompson a lot, but he seems to have lost whatever he had in the 2016 Finals.

 

It'll be really interesting to see how their scoring picks up when Thomas starts playing. You don't automatically add 30 points to each game, but IT has been an elite scorer who can create his own shot. Him doing that makes everything easier for James, Wade and Korver. Hopefully they get enough on that end to cover up for defense.

Cavs not being a better team than the Warriors is why they lost that game.

You’re that guy huh. Cute.

I watched about 10 minutes of the game last night. The Cavs left Carter open and he killed them. Willie Cauley-Stein also killed them in the middle. The Cavs need a defensive center real bad; JaVale McGee will do the same thing to them in Finals.

 

The Thunder seem to have finally figured it out, which is exciting for them. I was beginning to feel bad for Paul George finally getting traded, only to seemingly Ewing Theory himself in Indiana.

 

Speaking of, holy :censored: Victor Oladipo. I was among those who thought the Pacers were completely fleeced by Sam Presti (the actually good GM named Sam), but turns out it was far more even. Maybe even better for Indiana, given that Oladipo is a top eight player in the east and Sabonis might be good for a decade.

 

The Sixers are 2-8 in their last ten. I didn't think this was supposed to happen?

As good as the Rockets are with CP3, they look pretty uninspiring without him. And with the way things have been over his recent career, I feel like there's no way they'll make it through the playoff grind with him fully intact. I'm not scared of this Rockets team at all.

Brett Brown is a garbage coach, that's why.

Feels like we’re headed for an inevitable LeBron vs. Spurs/Warriors NBA Finals

 

Can you stay in the NFL threads?

How crazy is it that KCP can only play games in California and we all pretend that's perfectly okay?

The entire thing is really the epitome of how wealth does provide entitlement.

 

1-A Michigan judge ok'ed this.

2-Technically, he is in rehab for 25 days.

3-Is he getting paid for the games he misses or do they consider this an illness?

Either way, it's dumb. Plus, outside of like five good plays, he sucks when he's on the court. He has a green light he's never heard, and he's Paul George-level clutch (in that he isn't at all).

Warriors just got The Dwight Howard Experience™️ in Oracle. I don’t care if the Hornets lose every single game for the rest of their season, tonight was worth it.

In contrast to 15-16, these Warriors are really good at losing games at home. And also going down by 20 on the road but still winning. You get the impression they're bored.

You know, I’m probably never going to get over the Dwightmare, but I still feel good seeing him having a monster game every once in a while.

I don't watch much NBA nowadays but it's nice to see the Bulls climb out of the basement somewhat and potentially take a run at a 7 or 8 seed, should they continue playing .600 ball.
