Oladipo to the Rockets is interesting.

Somehow I think the Nets are the only team who didn’t come out ahead.

  • Cavs getting Allen is awesome
  • Rockets Oladipo and everything else for the wantaway Harden
  • Pacers with Lavert for Oladipo who wasn’t really part of their rotation anymore or moving forward. Can focus on building around Sabonis with really good and young pieces surrounding him
  • Nets...raised their ceiling slightly, but lowered the floor a ton.

I can't stand Kyrie or Harden, and highly dislike Durant.  Want a perfect match.

Didn’t take long for Kyrie to be a dickhead. 

I'm waiting for the day when Kyrie's insanity has gotten to the point that everyone forgets how talented he is, so LeBron winning a championship on a team with Kyrie winds up being considered this unbelievable feat.

"He won it all, while being saddled with that nutcase! Nothing like that has ever been done or will be done again!!!!!"

Harden is a good locker room guy. I’m sure he will bring the nets together.

Karl Anthony-Towns, who has lost seven family members to Covid already, has tested positive.

Hope Kyrie’s return will disrupt the Nets more than Harden’s first appearance did tonight. Durant and Harden played well together - 42 points and triple double between them.

Cavs getting royally screwed by this officiating crew against the Nets. Just pathetic.

Yeah, it’s hard to watch. I’m glad I don’t have a team I root for too intently anymore. It’d be awful going up against Brooklyn in a series.

Lol BKN defense is so, so bad.

Sexton with a LeBron like overtime. Damn that was awesome to watch.

I think Cavs ran a variation of the exact same play about 35 straight possessions. Scored on about 60% and great looks on other 40%. Nets aren’t even making it out of the East, let alone challenging the Lakers.

They traded their best defender to get Harden. They have Jordan, but you can’t have him on the floor in crunch time due to him shooting 55% from the line.  

They’re going to have to make another move or figure something else out in order to beat the Bucks/Lakers/Clippers.

Draymond’s comments about teams and holding players out while looking to trade them left me with mixed feelings. 

I’ve enjoyed watching Drummond this season and I’m disappointed the Cavs are basically saying “we suck too much to need you so go play somewhere else.” The Cavs have been trash since Lebron left with no end in sight. 

But I can’t feel too bad for Drummond. He’s making fucking $29 million - a contract he opted into this past offseason - and will likely be playing in a much better situation in a few weeks if not sooner. 

Most importantly, Draymond and everyone else on that team can still shut the fuck up about anything and everything.

Also, I thought for sure AD ruptured his achilles the other night. I’m glad he didn’t but I think that’s going to be lingering with him the rest of the season, which obviously puts a big dent in the Lakers armor.

Oh god, Drummond sucks. So glad he he getting traded or released. Not sure anyone good actually picks him up, though.

Also, Draymond is spot on. I’m guilty of it, for sure. But he is right and it’s really hypo
