Watched Memphis and NO and TNT guys talking about defensive minded Memphis and Pelicans shoot about 60% on the game 

Zion and Morant at one point were like 12/15 6 and 6 each. Zion looked unstoppable...very in control. Morant highlight reel against a bad defense. Surprised how much Redick plays.


I haven’t watched a ton of NBA this year but seems like guys can’t miss.

Thunder are bad and Presti traded away everyone on that team for 50 draft picks.

Here’s their roster from last night: Moses and Charlie Brown, Darius Bazley, Theo Maledon, Isaiah Roby, Tony Bradley, Gabriel Deck, Josh Hall, Svi Mykhailiuk, Kenrich Williams, Jaylen Hoard. 

If I told you that was G-league roster would you know any better? Maledon, Bazley, and Roby shot combined 7-39.

There’s somehow five other teams in the league worse than them in the standings including our Cleveland Cavaliers who I’m sick of sucking so much.

The lineup last night was post tank mode though, they weren’t that bad all year. 

And the Cavs nucleus (Sexland, Okoro, Allen, this years pick, Nance is they can keep him)  is solid. I’m pretty high on their potential down the line. Just get rid of awkward fit Love and they will automatically be better. I also don’t hate Dean Wade if he continues to shoot like this at 6’11 and a few other rotation guys. They just need the final piece and Garland to get a year older and learn to close games.

You can tank and still not lose to a sub .500 team by 57 points.

Here’s some fun facts for you Ironman:

Westbrook with 14 points, 24 assists, and 21 rebounds tonight. If I read it correctly, a 20 rebound/assist game has only happened two other times in NBA history - once by Wilt and the other by Westbrook. 

He’s three triple doubles short of Oscar Robertson’s all time record. Washington has seven games left and are pretty comfortable in that 10th spot. 

Lastly, Westbrook is guaranteed to average a triple double again this year, the 4th time in his career. Robertson is the only other player in history to do this, and did it once 50 years ago.

Love it. He’s a freak athlete with freak energy level....maybe not the best piece to win it all but KD crapped himself when they should’ve put away Golden State years back. RW is an all-star game type player and one of those guys like Allen Iverson who can step onto a track and run a 4:15 mile lol.

14 pts and 24 assists in a game with zero fucks for defense...cool but also meh...but 21 rebounds. That effer is driven for damn sure. He has a big ass chip on his shoulder for stats. I don’t know where he ranks anymore on the top players list but I still love what he does and what he’s done. Doesn’t take the cool route.

Thank s for posting that...I’m so bleh by the NBA anymore I don’t even check box scores hardly at all.

Not that it matters to anyone here, but I'd like to make a proclamation ... 

For the first time in Lebron's career, I will be actively rooting against him.

Curious as to why?

Gotcha. He did admit he fueled the wrong conversation with that and wish he hadn't said it. Seemed like a heated in the moment mistake, which fairly or unfairly, gets judged a whole lot more from someone that big and famous. 


If I had said that before the video came out, etc...then walked it back, not a sole would care lol.

He’s a douche. All the China stuff and then this. He deserves the criticism he gets.

Lakers vs Warriors play in game should be a lot of fun. Steph is playing unstoppable right now. Lebron left tonight’s game early after rolling his ankle - the same one he’s been having problems with.

Can't believe I'm actually saying this but I'll be rooting for Steph Curry.

I'm rooting for Golden State as well.  Lebron already complained about the play-in format, b/c he knew he'd have to play in it.  I'm so tired of his douchieness, his QQ'ing, and his double standards.  I'll get a good laugh if Golden State knocks them out.

Does this surprise you about his whining? The move to Miami pretty much proved that he's always looking for the easiest way to a ring.

Do you guys even know how the play-in works? Neither is out if they lose. They get to play the winner of San Antonio/Memphis. 

So, both GSW and LAL are gonna be in the “real” playoffs, probably without much effort. And Lakers are gonna destroy Utah or Phoenix. Only team Lakers have to really worry about is maybe Clippers...Warriors on the other hand probably don’t make it past either of those teams.
