THIRD for THIRD BEST IN THE WEST
The pistons are too slow to be an NBA team. Discuss
>>89422936Yes, too bad he joined a team whose star players are hard countered by the Raptors
>>89423007are you >implying they should be playing baseball?
>>89423071More like Bowling.
>>89423089i would watch the shit out of this reality show
>>89423096After back to back blow out games to faster teams. Beard Griffen, Andre Dumstick, and Zaza I’llingureya decides to take up bowling instead. What’s the over under for wings ate by drumstick?
This dude is special. S P E C I A L.
>Mavs beat the Clippers without Luka>Lose to the Raptors and Pelicans without DSJWe all know who really runs the ship here.
>curry for three......bang
>first jap with nba potential>it's a fucking muttweebs on suicide watch
LeBron is a God
>>89423483god of sucking dick lol
is luka doncic elite and should I get taco bell or popeyes for lunch?
>>89423411The chick who beat Serena was also a mutt. It's almost like blacks are better at athletic competitions.................................
Who is the best fast break team in the NBA. Warriors Kings Thunder Bucks RaptorsPick one.
>>89423686Warriors since they can stop running as soon as they pass mid court and just shoot, especially Curry.
>>89423029raptors aren't that much better than sixers, embiid shat his pants, and sixers have no bench. Bench will be better by the playoffs but I think raptors will still btfo anyone else in the ECF. If Ben and Markelle start shooting the fucking ball then it's over in the east, no one else comes close. FultzRedickButlerSimmons Embiidname a better 5
>>89423859Fultz is dead dude.
>>89423859My mother Your Mother My Grandmother Giannis Your daughter
sixers organization secrets all kinds of quit
>>89423686It’s tough between the Thunder Warriors and Bucks. Giannis is a dominant finisher in transition and Bledsoe is better than people give him credit for. The Thundies have 2 PG’s that can really push the ball so they are hard to keep up with. Warriors, as other anon pointed out half their fast breaks end in 3’s.
>>89423891Yeah I know it fucking sucks. If black men weren't retarded then this wouldn't be a problem, he has absolutely zero confidence, they make up fake injury to come up with explanation for the problem. Apparently the guy boning his mom got him to change his shooting pattern doing things like shooting from chairs and now he can't play. Wtf. He's still better than TJ though so I don't understand why they don't just make him play regardless. What a disaster.
Does this stat indicate better perimeter defense or are more teams hitting the three so it's leveled out the results a bit?
>>89423859G Tre JonesG R.J. BarrettG Cam ReddishF Zion WilliamsonC Marques Bolden
>>89423859Simmons Redick Roco SaricEmbiid
Rus just needs to come out of the closet already, the world is ready. If he dresses the way he does as a "Straight" man can you imagine what he'll do once he's out? I can't wait.
>>89423963who was boning his mom?
When anyone asks why they shoot so many threes in the NBA show them this graphic. What would getting rid of those corner threes do?
Is it official? Are Spurs going for the tank?
>>89424218I fucking hope so. The team is just so damn disappointing that I don't want them in the playoffs period. They just need to tank and grab a top 10 guy to mold
>>894242331 year too late, Donc would have been perfect for pop
>>89424257True but there is still hope for Zion
>>89424271>go to the playoffs for like almost 30 straight years >tank for 1 (ONE(A SINGLE)) year >get Zion Williamson I would literally fight anyone from San Antonio from that moment onward
>>89422780The NBA is literally the most boring professional sport besides soccer and golf. It's also a fucking joke how the star players get away with traveling and fouling every single game. It's also fixed by the refs and the draft is also fixed. Fucking retarded organization. Mfw exact same teams in the finals every year. Who finds this shit exciting?
Thunder will be a good playoff team once Roberson comes back. Terrance Ferguson is trash. Dropping Melo really turned them around. Noel was a low key good pickup as well.
>>89424297It would be such a Spurs thing to happen
>>89424271It is harder to tank this season than it is to get into the playoffs. Spurs would be fighting for the 8th seed in the east right now and have like 10 teams ahead of them in the lotto right now.
>>89423859Got to love retards who go “oh Embiid just had a bad game” “oh Simmons just had a bad game.” Nigga they had bad games because the Raptors defence killed them. Kawhi is the Simmons killer, dude turns over so many possessions against him, and that ain’t changing anytime soon, so you might as well just write him off for the playoff series offensively. Embiid is an excellent raw talent, but dude is fucking lazy and has been exposed as someone who can’t shoot and can’t get past bigs who stay low, JV has his number now and I don’t think that will change much going into the playoffs.Butler is amazing and we have no real answer to him if we keep Kawhi on Simmons, but Butler can’t carry the team by himself. Reddick is pretty good as well, but again, not enough. I sincerely doubt Fultz will ever play another game for Philly.Only team I genuinely can see beating the Raptors in the playoffs is the Celtics, if they get their shit together. 76ers are nowhere near capable of beating the Raps in a 7 game series, Bucks are really good, and Giannis very well may be the best player in the NBA in a couple of years, but they’re just not there yet. Celtics have a lot of good players, they just need to get rid of Hayward so Tatum and Rozier can play more.
Do you Markelle injury is real ?
>muh beautiful basketball>muh big fundamental>muh big threeSsmug spuds fans get their comeuppance.
>>89424457I think the injury is real but only about a quarter of the reason he can’t play. 75% of it is mental, dude needs a therapist
>>89424457no, not a chance and he'll lose any lawsuit that he files if he goes that route. He should just ask for a trade and try to restart in a new place, preferably a team that isn't good and has low expectations.
1. LeBron2. Kawhi3. AD4. Giannis 5. CurryKD isn't even top 5 any more, the decline has started
>>89424457Yes it is real and he's been trying to cover it up>>89424532He's not trying to file lawsuit, he's trying to hold onto his multimillion dollar rookie contract.
basketball makes my day worse
>>89424664Will the Suns ever be good, or is your organization too retarded
>>89424436Let’s admit it the 76ers only have 4 NBA level players on their team where as the bucks or raptors have nearly a dozen.
>>89424769unfortunately the latter. until robert sarver is gone the suns will be a joke. somebody please record him saying something racist
>>89424664GET A FUCKING POINT GUARDGet John Wall.

>>89423686Thunder have lead the league in fastbreak scoring and points off turnovers two years in a row
>>89424852i dont live in arizona. i just became a basketball fan in arizona and am not a bandwagoner
>>89424792It also sucks because of your location. Western conference and Arizona where players don’t want to go. I can sympathize with you on that last point, no one wants to come to Canada either.
Are the Pistons legit or should I stay skepticle?
>>89424852Arizona is a great place to live.... At least it was until the cancer from California started to move in
>>89424304>it's boring>my arguments to support this are that players cheat and it's fixedGreat post.

>drake replaces derozan's locker>triggering ensuesderozanfags want his empty locker to be a shrine or some shit.

>>89424873Rockets championship window has closed. Enjoy being a shitty team once again, dumb frogposter>>89424568KD is still good, but I’ll admit that as of right now he doesn’t look in peak performance.
>>89425046Arizona is shit. California is single handedly holding this country’s economy together.
>>89425046>>No manditory car insuranceCar insurance is literally $10 a month for so many benefits. Dumb broke cracker.
>>89424892No, they’re simply not good enough to compete with any of the big 4 in the East. Most Western teams can’t compete with those big 4 either. I’m not even sure the Pistons could beat the Pacers in a 7 game series with Oladipo back. Also Blake is playing god mode and will definitely have a season-ending injury at some point.
>>89425075>California is single handedly holding this country’s economy together.>have highest poverty rate in nationSure.Is that why Cali is hemorrhaging businesses?
>>89425115I’m sure people want anything to do with a Desert.
Too many one sided games todayGuess ill skip
>>89425115What does that have to do with income? Literally shows how little you know.
>>89424986JV was 100% his reaction to the trade was we got better kekjudging by ibaka's inspired play this year he prob hated him too. Or maybe he gets to save energy from always having to bail derozan out on the defensive end

East is actually fun to watch this year with Lebron gone, and I suspect it will continue to be fun to watch for years to come. Enjoy Lebron, W*stoids. You think your conference is boring with the Warriors winning constantly? Just wait till Lebron gets another superstar on the Lakers and dominates the conference for 5 years.
>>89425395I’m ok with this
>>89424963How far will Drakes larping go? I can guarantee that he fantasizes about signing a one day contract and suiting up at least once.
>>89425455If you had the money why not? Would be fun to come off the bench for a couple minutes
Why are indoor basketball courts so inaccessible? I just wanna ball but don’t want to $~100 every month for a gym membership
>>89425395eastern conference is irrelevant due to the raptorswestern conference is irrelevant due to golden state (and lakers after they take KD)you thought golden state and cleveland dominating was boring? Prepare for 5+ years of Lakers-Raptors and 12-0 playoff records leading up to the finals
>>89425368White people dont know how to dress properly. It’s like wearing socks with sandals, they dont know what the fuck theyre doing
People actually believe Philadelphia is gonna do well in the playoffs
>>89425501black people do the socks with sandals thing too, but they just call them "slides" and suddenly it's cool
>>89425466Good question desu. I've been looking for somewhere I could rent a indoor court because it's raining here in socal and I haven't played for a few days. It's driving me nuts
>>89425471Nah, Raptors are good but they’re far from invincible like GS or the Lakers with KD/AD. I’m also pretty certain Kawhi leaves us for the Clippers unless we go to the finals and win a game against GS. Bucks will be a contender in the coming years and Celtics still have enough talent to make a run if they drop the Gimp. 76ers are really good too but they’re not going to contend until Simmons learns to shoot. The East is genuinely competitive between those 4 teams, Lebron leaving for the West coast was the best thing that happened to this division in a long, long time.
>>89425502>Raps not losing a single game to a garbage teamBased. All other Eastern teams confirmed frauds for losing to sub .500 teams.
>>89425075If you aren't in tech or Hollywood then you are responsible for jack shit

Imagine if the NBA had dumb euro soccer rules of allowing ties, but the team that got the tie at home got the advantage. That would be fucking retarded, no exciting overtimes or anything. Euros are so stupid.
>>89425609Agreed. Euros are equally as stupid as canadians.
How the fuck did the Lakers get so good so quick?
>>89425617t. Filthadelphia resident
>>89425620Lebron started playing the point and gave up trying to develop Lonzo Bust and Brandon “weakling” Ingram. It’ll get them a playoff spot but they’re gonna get wrecked in the first round because none of the young talent (Kuzma may end up being the exception) will have gotten any better from last year and LeGeriatric will be gassed from play 40 minutes a night in the regular season.
>>89425620they literally just needed a center. Once they got a legit rim protector in tyson chandler they became elite
should i shave my legs?
>>89425620They're beating sub 500 teamsWow so fucking good
>>89425688honestly it feels really good unless you fuck up then it gets really itchy
>>89425554Why would someone be jealous of people from another state moving into his and ruining it with the same autism of the state they left? That's the opposite of jealousy. And why do people use flyover as an insult? I'm happy my state isn't attractive to hipsters and faggots because it keeps them and their cancer away
>>89425662You’re wrong. Lebron started playing point and better defence. That is literally the only reason they have improved at all. If Lonzo or Rondo start playing primary PG again the Lakers will go back to losing, Chandler or not.
>>89425688>should i shave my legs?your crush does so you may as well give it a go
NB making moves
>>89425734lebron got to play point because kuzma wasn't playing center anymore so he could play power forward and shift lebron to point
imagine being an nba player and wearing the best shoes in the world for 1 (ONE) day and then immediately replaces them. Like, do these people spend half their paycheck on shoes or does the company give them free shoes to rep?
Is Giannis the most athletic player in the league currently.
>>89425858each team has thousands of shoes just sitting around in storage somewhere in their facilities, provided free by the shoe companies of course.
>>89425853Lebron can play point and centre at the same time. He can literally play any position, he’s the GOAT. Don’t give me that excuse and don’t pretend you’re ignorant of Lebron and Magic’s public comments about not wanting Lebron to play 40 minutes a game like in Cleveland and instead work on developing the young guys. It’s (unfortunately for the Lakers) become abudantly clear that not a single one of their young guys is going to be able to be Lebron’s #2 this season, so the team is fucked for the playoffs because Lebron will have to drag them there like he did with Cleveland. I strongly suspect the Lakers will trade 3 of Kuzma, Ingram, Hart and Ball + picks to the Pelicans for AD next season, as it seems increasingly likely the Lakers are not getting Kawhi and KD obviously does not want to play with Lebron, if his recent comments are anything to go off.
>>89425901They should keep Kuzma and Hart and trade the rest. Those two are perfect role players for lebron. Kuz can cut, drive, and shoot the J, and he doesn’t need the ball so he can just take the pass and score. Hart plays scrappy defense, can hit the 3, and has a tamed ego , also perfect for Bron.
>>89425926I agree with you that those are the guys worth keeping, but I frankly don’t see a successful trade with New Orleans for AD not including one of those guys. Especially if, as I think is likely, the Lakers do not get any big names in FA next summer and KD either remains with the Warriors or goes off to the Knicks, and Kawhi remains with the Raptors or (more likely) joins the Clippers. If the Lakers don’t get another star in the off season they are going to be sweating and will probably (rightfully) lack confidence in AD joining them the following season. So I think they will make a trade for him next summer after they get bounced in the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs.

Everything has gone horribly wrong and the only solution is blowing it up. Not even trading for Beal or Wall would save this situation.

>>89429699I hate when people ask this question like two months into the season. I get why though, guys like LeBron, Carmelo, and now guys like Doncic who have great rookie seasons, people just assume that if your rookie season isn't a near fringe All-Star level, then you're a bust. Especially in this day and age, everyone is looking for the instant fireworks in a 1st round draft pick. Anyways, to actually answer your question, no. Kevin isn't a bust, he had a bad start and missed 7 games with an injury, slumped a bit when he came back, but he's really come alive in recent games. But I don't think Frank will be anything other than a French Andre Roberson unless he starts providing something, anything on the offensive end.
>>89429747I still cringe everytime I see him in the paint, worrying he might break his leg again.
>>89429854yikes, where have all the elite centers gone?
Brown might actually make a career for himself as a guy who comes in and hits other teams' wings.

Have Canadians always been this annoying? I think I get how people felt about the warriors since ‘15Fuck the raptors. Canadians are fuckin stupid with their dumbass bagged milk.

>>89429941LeGM is back fucking up teams again
>>89429941why you so obsessed? It's just not healthy, seek help
>>89429918Who knows if he gets strong enough to play 30+ minutes a night. But he's quick, tall and extremely long (7'8 wingspan to Bamba's 7'10) and teams will take chances on him until he proves he's unplayable.
>>89429686honestly i thought dwight would have ended up in boston
>>89429936he was a 7'7" lanky giant who made it 8 seasons in the NBA without ever being a starter and making one all-nba defensive team
JAYLEN PLEASE STOP SHOOTING JUMPERS
Brown and Rozier dont have any trade value
>>89429743There are at least two concerns if they wait and trade:- Will they lose to the Lakers in the "Trade for AD" Sweepstakes?- If the Celtics ownership doesn't want to pay the luxury tax (since they'd have to give Kyrie a new contract to trade for AD), how'd they get rid of Horford / Hayward since no GM with a brain would want to take those albatross contracts and get rip-off'd by Ainge at the same time.>>89429875They're playing GSW tomorrow night, deal with it>>89429987I'm pretty sure Rob Pelinka and Magic would shut that down quickly
I really want someone to buy that fuckin Tard controller
>>89429994this is my first lebron post in months. you need to spend time obsession over someone in the real world
>>89430106As a Cs fan, I’d rather have Kyrie. So idk they’re kinda fucked. Unless they offload massive picks, Hayward (who is showing he can still play), Jaylen and some other scrub.Idk what they’ll do. Tbh i think Time Lord might end up being like Capella (which is really all they need)
>>89430106>>I'm pretty sure Rob Pelinka and Magic would shut that down quicklyMagic has no fucking idea what he's doing.
terry is a little bit retardedhim and jaylen for a big man please, id even take drummond at this point

The Celtics are playing autistball. They can't decide if they want to be good or not.
>>89430415They’re finally “gelling” in two months they’ll be running through teams
>Smart keeps chucking 3s and blowing it
Stop shooting threes, Marcus Smart!
>>89430415I think they need a trade or two imo, a pure point and a defensive shotblocker and rebounder.
Kanter keeps getting offensive rebounds and keeps getting blocked. Is he good or bad I can't decide.
>>89430334It'll be some hapa
>>89430375>>89430378Neither of them are or were very athleticEspecially Yao, he was literally just tall
>>89430415They might have too much talent. Terry and Jaylen keep playing hero ball. And yeah, they don’t have a rebounder
>>89430533he's a statpadder who is very sneaky about ithim and randle are two of the best at it
>>89430539hapas don't count if mixed with black

BREAKING>LeBron James would like to get Carmelo Anthony to Los Angeles to join the Lakers, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.Melo and LeBron have been fairly close since they were drafted on the same night. The Lakers could also be without Brandon Ingram (ankle) for multiple games, so that may be a factor in LeBron's thinking. Nothing is imminent here, and it's not like Melo would mesh with coach Luke Walton's system.
>Melo interested in the Lakers; Lakers "not interested."LMAOOOOOOOO
How many times are they going to show these same clips of Barkley getting dunked on?
Carmelo Anthony is not a winner and frankly, he’s a net negative on a team.Giving him minutes HURTS you. Even in his prime in Denver, tell me what exactly he won? NOTHING. He’s a first/second round exit at his peak.
>>89430562>Sneaky about itAnyone who has watched Kanter knows he carefully cultivates his points, rebounds, and FG%
>>89430834yes but he's not westbrook pushing people out of the way to get reboundswestshit is blatant
>>89430883True enough, he’s not quite as bad as le triple double meme man
>>89430150I know that he didn't make some of the best decisions out there (overpay KCP) along with his trade reaction tweets, but can he really be Knicks Isiah, MJ, or Elgin "Scapegoat for Sterling" Baylor bad?>>89430681There was one Korean guy (and still the only one till now) that played for the Trailblazers in the mid-2000s, but he only played for two seasons and eventually went back to South Korea
I bet $100 on the rockets tonight. Did I fuck up?
Tim Hardaway Junior is such an inefficient chucker, jesus christ
Is anybody even watching this Celtics game other than me?
>>89431278I am. FUCK TIM HARDAWAY JR
i remember posting on /nba/ in 2011 and listening to big L while playing assassin creed 2good times...
>>89431278I'm watching the Knicks game.>>89431287Reminder that he's signed on for next season, AND has a player option for the season after.
>>89431287I don't understand how he can be so hot and cold. I guess if you take a billion shots per game you're bound to sink some, but 5 3's is still pretty impressive.
>>89431307Is this nigga any good or does he just decide to turn into KD against the Celtics.Fuck he’s killing em.
>>89431338He’s also taken close to 20 shots and made a quarter of them.
https://twitter.com/ramonashelburne/status/1070867970568577024NOT SO FAST
>>89431354I know but still, 5/11 from 3 is keeping them in this game
>>89431385Oh I agree, it just astounds me that he’s allowed to put up so many shots.
>>89431398I guess when you have literally nobody else, somebody has to.
>>89431278I'm>Knicks is capable of landing a max free agent next year>Might still struggle for a playoff spot even with a healthy KP as said FA, KP, and TMJ might not be able to carry the rest of the teamYikes>>89431307Don't forget the waive and stretch for one Joakim Noah until 2021-22
sent flowers but she said she didnt receive themsaid she didnt need them
>>89431338He's a chucker. He was a chucker when the Knicks first drafted him, he was a chucker in Atlanta, and he's a chucker now that he's back with the Knicks. >>89431427>Don't forget the waive and stretch for one Joakim Noah until 2021-22Please don't remind me.
4 years later its actually happening. You just had to be patient.
Is KP ever gonna play ball again?
>>89431451In March for 5 games and shut down.
The Celtics have a worse record than the Lakers. I think its time to admit Kyrie is a bust.
>>89431515When is his contract up?
did Jaylen finally figure it out?
Kyrie is 22/5/3 for his career and gets injured every year. He's also a liability on defense. I think he gets overrated because of that game winning shot in 2016 which wasn't even game winning. It was still a one possession game. LeBron's free throw was the dagger.
>>89431591RFA summer of 2020. Eligible for an extension next fall.
>>89431591His option is up this year
This Celtics offense is fucking trash fire
Theis will be deadly once he develops a three.
>This Celtics offense is fucking trash firethe team is on pace to score 130. why are celcucks fans like this?
>there were some nigs here that doubted Kawhi would return to form
>>89431653>>89431671Just in time for the Celtics to sign him>>89431695They get like that, then they’ll explode for 20. They can’t score consistently. It’s either feast or famine
>>89431806Everybody will have cap space summer of 2020, except for those about to go full retard next summer.
whoa are the Celtics actually an elite team? Did /nba/ lie to me?
>>89422780>LeBron is focused on wins>LeBron is interested in having Melo on his team
>Kyrie grabbing shoulderLooks fine. But still, Jesus he’s injury prone
this is gonna be the night of blowouts
>>89431857Would he really make that mistake? Dude is a basketball savant. He has to know Melo will sink this team.

>>89431857Melo is hot garbage, I don't understand the fascination. He's trash on D and whenever any pressure is on him he bricks shots or takes shots at retarded angles.
>>89431880he passed that ball like throwing a hadouken RIP
Why the hell is Stevens refusing to play TimeLord? Why are Jaylen and Rozier playing on garbage time?
damn my sunsies are trash
>>89431899It got got pulled when they tripple teamed him. He’s got ice on it, desu he looks fine
>>89431856Celtics needed to get its shit together due to various problems and it seems like they are getting it>>89431857>>89431888Apparently that "Lebron wants Melo" tweet was false according to >>89431357, and she's supposed to be one of the more reliable sources>>89431893So who'll fleece the Suns by offloading a backup PG to them?>>89431881But who will be doing the blowout for the Jazz / Rockets game?
>>89431925Increase their trade value.
Ladies and gentlemen, the LeBron James of video games
>>89431964this poor fella is 3-6 in the finals?
>>89431933That's a good question. I think the Rockets will find a way to BTFO Utah tonight, but both these teams are painful glass cannons, so I suspect one of them will play trash. I bet it's the Jazz because they seem fundamentally broken
>>89431948Makes sense but still.. he plays scrubs like Semi and Dabusele on garbage time. Just give my man like 5 minutes per game
not like this phoenix...not like this
>>89432040>it’s a someone’s getting BTFO in basketball score
>Suns down 7-34 at the end of the first quarter
Are the suns legitimately worse than those 2014 sixers?
Jesus Christ, Suns. We all know Sarver is gonna cheap out even if the team becomes a conference contender.
>>89432097>>89432108>>89432111This is like their second straight game scoring under 10 in the first quarter, or their second in three
>>89432097>suns fans right now
>cancer purdue kid on inside the nbawhy isn't he at the espn award show?
Maybe NBA should just buy the Suns and Cavs to install a slightly more competent FO
>>89432108At least the Sixers were giving out glorified tryouts for all the scrubs they brought in. Those dudes played trying to belong. Phoenix gives up at the first sign of trouble.
okay rockets stop out the jazz>golber tdraws a foul one second into the gamethat must be a record
finish at the rim capela. you were left wide open twice
Behold, your god, Giannis.
Refs looking to fuck the Jazz over quick>EJECTEDAnd Rockets win
>gobertHe's so shook
>>89431893I believe there is a slightly used, Terry Rozier available for rent out of Boston.
>>89432125Suns fans want to lose. They want the #1 pick
and he's gone
Jingles is a fucking deadeye
>>89432344no one care rocket cuck
Can the league do something about the fucking Suns?
Rockets are a game under .500 and the Lakers are 6 games over .500. This season is goofy. I like it though.
>>89432379I do so thats what matters
>>89432381Didn't they go to the finals in the 90s? Some teams have never been. Do something about them first.
>>89432395should have believed in the god dream.Lakers/Raptors finals is happening. Believe it.
not watching the game why isnt bridges shooting
Is Blake Griffen white. He looks white and his name sounds white.
>>89432381Funny enough, still not worse than Ted Stepien. Suns just can't develop talent the past 5 years.
>>89432448Race is a social construct. If people say he's white then he's white.
I WANT TO PUNCH THIS NIGGER REF
You just know this Rockets vs Jazz will end in a massive fightIt feels in the air
>>89432458>Ted Stepien gave birth to the Stepien Rule>Teams still managed to ruin their future regardless>>89432395The moment when the Rockets signed the Supermax for CP3 pretty much sealed their fate

>https://www.si.com/nba/2018/12/06/kevin-durant-lebron-james-russell-westbrook-lakers-warriors-fanboys>Kevin Durant is back at it: Making headlines for speaking not so kindly about other NBA players and the capital M Media. This week, the target of his criticism was LeBron James and the “fanboys” (reporters) who cover him. The quotes came from a Bleacher Report article by Ric Bucher, in which Bucher explored what he sees as a trend of players not wanting to join a team with LeBron on it. A fair amount of players went on the record both supporting and debunking Bucher’s theory, but it’s what Durant said that has really greased the wheels of the news cycle.>This is because Durant, per usual, said more than most athletes. He leveled a charge at LeBron, saying that young players on the superstar’s team end up changing their style of play to be on the same court. But it’s not what Durant said about the actual basketball that’s got so many people talking. It’s what he said about the environment surrounding LeBron.>"So much hype comes from being around LeBron from other people,” Durant said. “He has so many fanboys in the media. Even the beat writers just fawn over him. I'm like, we're playing basketball here, and it's not even about basketball at certain points. So I get why anyone wouldn't want to be in that environment because it's toxic. Especially when the attention is bullshit attention, fluff. It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word. Just get out of the way and let us play basketball."Was he right?
>>89431964blacks dominate another sport
>>89432642this dude lmaodo even GS fans like him?
>>89432642He's a pussy for not just attacking Lebron directly, and talking about "the environment surrounding Lebron" but his criticisms are correct
>>89432642He ain't exactly wrong, but it's not like he has any right to talk about getting fluff pieces written about him.
>>89432642just look at /nba/ to get an idea of how right he is
Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf is Steph Curry’s real father, not Dell
this freaking team sometimes
>>89432642He’s a seething faggot who spends all day getting butthurt on the internet, insecure bitch with no legacy.
