Few players in NBA history have logged more career minutes on the court when considering regular season and playoffs

I think if they struggle he’ll come back. But if they are maintaining enough, he’ll just play to stay in game form/shape.

Laley your picture didn’t show up for me. Could be a problem on my end but regardless I’ll assume you give it 0%. Which I do as well but it’d be fun to watch. 

I edited, but here it is again...

That doesn’t “feel” like LeBron....that’s likely what he feels, likely what he knows is probably best....but I don’t think he’ll be able to sit back much. Too many things he’s shooting for in his career.

I think he plays decently more than expected....but if he doesn’t he’s sure as hell earned it


He kinda did that with the Cavs in his final season.  He gave 0 fucks about the seed.   If the NBA has the same bubble format, there is really no reason to fight for the #1 seed other than matching up against a shitty first round opponent.  Even if they don't have a bubble format, there most likely won't be full arenas creating that much of a home court advantage.

Chris Paul traded to Phoenix.

James Harden to Brooklyn picking up steam...

Look on the bright side. With Durant and Irving he likely won’t average 27 free throws a game.

Houston should tell Harden to fuck off though. He’s got two more years plus third year player option on deal. They’d be miserable without him.

No way I trade Harden if I’m Houston. Unless you get a shot ton of Draft capitol down the road.

After seeing what Milwaukee gave up for Holiday, the market for Harden had to be insane.

And in absolutely horrible news, Klay Thompson tore his Achilles today in practice/work outs.

Granted, most of you won’t care. But this sucks as a fan of the NBA.

That’s the injury (that’s not completely life altering) that bothers me the most for athletes

That sucks. That’s Demarcus Cousins level bad luck. 

Also prayers out to Obi Toppin going to the Knicks.

With the 5th pick in the 2020 NBA draft, The Cleveland Cavaliers select Isaac Okoro from Auburn University.

Wish Cabs had swing for the fences with Avdeji or Hayes. Oh well. Okoro will work out, just don’t see a future star.

Canceling the tournaments didn’t help.

No it didn’t. College basketball has fallen for me more than any other sport I follow.
