The Warriors look absolutely bored this season. Is there a more meaningless regular season than the NBA? 

 

NBA: our season doesn't matter because only two teams are good

NHL: our season doesn't matter because only two teams are bad

Major League Baseball, NHL, La Liga, Bundesliga, etc. If you don't like it, don't watch, because this kind of comment is analogous to "I don't like what you like," which is the worst possible message boarding.

 

Have you actually watched the Warriors play this season? Granted they always have a few games every year where they're totally disconnected and play sloppy, s**t basketball, but they're good enough to still pull those games out. The issue this year though is that they've played almost ALL of their games with a certain level of disconnection and it really does kinda show that they're bored. A lot of that "wow" factor they've had over the past few years just isn't there yet, which is unfortunate from a fan standpoint, but I mean I get it. If they can half ass it and still win, then why not? It just kills a lot of the intrigue. And it's not like it's a new problem. It's kind of always been the issue with basketball. 

 

 

And in what universe is the MLB regular season less meaningful than the NBA regular season? Half of the teams in the league make the playoffs in the NBA and the top teams usually never care about seeding. Lebron's teams haven't been the #1 seed a good chunk of the time and they're pretty much always slated for the Finals. 

 

Why do you always get so weirdly triggered over some of my posts? Damn Dave, I feel like I just "insulted" Pokémon and hurt your feelings again.

You had two thoughts: 1. the Warriors are disconnected from this season. I agree and have posted as much (until they came back and walloped Philadelphia last week). 2. The NBA regular season is meaningless. I disagreed and said as much. Especially since this season, Houston has been the best team (by a lot) and home court will matter in the playoffs.

 

That's all. No triggering.

Cleveland and Golden State have played over 100 games the last three years. Fatigue is partially to blame for both. Cleveland has the added issue of major roster changes. Houston looks good now but will they be at this or a higher level in June?

CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose has left the team and is seriously re-evaluating his future in the NBA, league sources told ESPN.

 

There is growing uncertainty inside and outside the franchise about whether he will return to the team, league sources said.

 

Rose has missed 11 of the Cavs' 18 games this season, including the last seven straight because of a sprained left ankle. Rose's increasing frustration with injuries is causing him to consider his desire to continue playing in the league, league sources told ESPN.

 

One team source told ESPN of Rose: "He's tired of being hurt and it's taking a toll on him mentally."

See, the joke here is that the Bulls traded away Jordan Bell to the Warriors for $3.5 million in cash considerations, because there was no way they could ever get fleeced by a rundown organization like Golden State.

 

Actually, the joke here is the Chicago Bulls.

Before Lacob/Guber bought the franchise from Chris Cohan, the Warriors were the rundown organization. Lacob/Viber started their ownership by using their amnesty on Charlie Bell as opposed to the Andris Biedrins contract mess.

How do you even lose a game 143 to 94, come on

 

I remember watching a game during the absolute depths that they lost by 50-plus. To the Timberwolves.

 

It's weird to think we're coming up on 20 years since the last time the Bulls truly mattered. Still packing the house with corporate clients from the North Shore every night, though!

Now we know how powerful Marc Gasol is.

 

Tonight is Cavs/Sixers and a really great glimpse into how ready Philadelphia is. I bet Philadelphia wins, and maybe wins big. They're young, talented, hungry and well coached, while Cleveland is always ready to turn on itself.

Gasol is as much a Memphian as he's Spanish. Remember Marc went to HS there.

 

There's just a handful of guys who could lose the respect of the star player and keep his job and nearly all of them have rings.

 

This is basically as old as the NBA.

Magic got Westhead fired, LeBron got both Silas and Blatt fired, Boogie gets them all fired...

 

Plus, how has Chris Wallace stayed GM there since 2007?

Welcome to the Clippers, Coach Fiz!

If Fizdale basically dared them to fire him as some are reporting, he may have to wait a while for a second opportunity. Apparently, he is relieved to be fired today.

And then what happened?
