It's kind of bizarre that the Blazers are the 3rd seed yet still feel like the underdog in their own series. I'm not even worried, they're supposed to win at home so the pressure is on them. OKC had an atrocious shooting night and only lost by 5. I'm predicting we steal game 2 and get the gentleman's sweep.

If he wasn't busy playing video games and fucking thots, he'd have time to practice his shot. If he learned how to shoot he'd help his whole team. People literally leave him open on the perimeter because they know he isn't going to do shit.

I don't understand what's wrong with him and what the fuck was wrong with Fultz.

Jazz front office needs to learn just because you have continuity with a bunch of shitty players and make marginal improvements doesn't mean your chemistry will suddenly outweigh talent and make you a contender. Just lol @ preserving a mediocre roster out of fear or unwillingness to take any risk and improve upon the foundation. Everyone that isn't Donovan Mitchell or Rudy Gobert should have been available for trade from the jump and they should not have felt at all inclined to give shit players like Dante Exum extensions.

Even at 100% he's still gonna get BUCKED.
>>
>>92090909
I like Ben and I've always defended him and felt his detractors were judging him too harshly, rookie after all. But it's year two now, you've had an offseason to work on your game without having to worry about rehabbing an injury, you've learned early on in your career that you're not infallible after being completely taken out of a playoff series by Boston players you likely never had heard of before the start of your career. You're very clearly not Lebron James yet and have a ways to go when developing your game to be truly elite.

How does he respond to all this? Comes back with the same exact stats, same terrible free throw percentage, and doesn't even attempt a three. He did not improve any measurable aspect of his game and here we go again with a second year all star being completely useless in a playoff series despite having a relatively stacked squad.
>>
What went wrong?
>>
>>92090909

He's the giant elephant in the room. The vast majority of Philly's problems stem from him being unable to shoot and having to warp the entire team and gameplan around that disadvantage. Off-ball he's useless and with the ball he's only super effective in transition or with a mismatch. Dude is going to get the team blown up and a bunch of people fired if he doesn't improve
>>
>>92091010
The simple solution would be to move him to PF and a Draymond Green role, he should also be taking a ton of threes from the corners. Not sure what his problem is.
>>
>>92090977
I mean just making it to the NBA is impressive. You have to have a ridiculous amount of talent to occupy a roster spot let alone be a star.

>>
>>92091010
why do you think they drafted fultz. they were planning ahead of time to move from simmons cause they realized this zoomer doesn't care about improving
>>
>>92091276
Fultz was a combo guard and if he was the player that everyone thought he was in the draft he could have fit in pretty easily on Philly.
>>
>>92091276

they drafted Fultz because they needed guards and he appeared to be the best available. Colangelo also rated him high and wouldn't take no for an answer. Simmons year 1 was a success because even without a shot he was a very good player. Now in year 2 he's the most disappointment player in the league because he didn't get any better and the league has a book out on how to defend him in the playoffs

The discussion at the time was Fultz would eventually supplant Reddick in the starting lineup, what's funny is if Fultz played like Shamet he'd be considered untouchable and likely would not have been moved for anything short of a superstar. But since Shamet was a late first rounder he's more expendable despite being way better.

One of my favorite mini rivalries in the NBA was young LeBron and Gilbert Arenas. A lot of people forget Gil's scoring talent. He was like a Damian Lilliard shooter mixed with Harden's ability to absorb contact and get to the free throw line. It's a shame he suffered career altering knee injuries. (Before you mention guns in the locker room, Gil was physically past his prime at that point).

>attempting to spread negative propaganda about the most comprehensive and advanced rating engine the world has ever seen, the engine hailed as “the philosopher’s rating system”

Gee, I wonder what your motive would be for trying to get the S.P.A.R.K. rating system shut down?... and lemme guess, once sparks is gone you weren’t planning on cornering and monopolizing the ratings engine market with your own “advanced renting system”, were you!?... I see exactly what’s going on here you bacon-backed-bastard!!... Sounds to me like you’re just another advocate of the updated P.O.R.K.I.E.S. rating system!? It’s funny how every time I make a S.P.A.R.K. related post, Every. Single. Time. All of the sudden, out of the wood work will come 1 anon, and then 2 anons, and then 3, all seemingly random anons that are suspiciously hell bent on discrediting S.P.A.R.K.S. And trying to replace it with P.O.R.K.I.E.’S. subpar, aged and increasingly unpopular rating system. And now I suppose you’re going to tell me about how your outdated MaxRimCrust3.1 engine outstrips S.P.A.R.K.S. CandyBread Elite7 engine??!? even though MaxRimCrust3.1 only simulates a fraction of the games and takes practically 10x as long to do it. You and your employees are paid to use a system which has been proven time and time again to be inferior... TO WHICH I MIGHT ADD, still doesn’t predict player stats or game outcomes within a 14% margin of what S.P.A.R.K. can do. Nobody uses P.O.R.K.I.E.S. anymore, face it, your sickly, undependable joke of a rating system has been replaced and voted out. So why don’t you paid P.O.R.K.I.E.S. shills crawl back under the dirty, dark, damp rock you all came from and stop trying to discredit the better clearly superior system, simply because you’re afraid that YOUR OWN spark will be going out once and for all!

I bet Larry feels a bit like Woody did when Buzz came to town... Better built, more advanced, new sparky poster comes into Andy’s thread and starts sparking things up. Woody was absolutely BTFO and dominated by Buzz in that situation too!
I feel like there are so many parallels that can be drawn between the two story arcs of “Woody vs. Buzz” and “Larry vs. sparks”.. in the end, I guess we can only hope that Sparks/Larry will meet the same fate as Buzz/Woody, who were able to set aside their differences in pursuit of something much more important - a blossoming friendship. And I think I can speak for pretty much everyone here when I say that we’re all praying that Larry will one day learn to set aside his emotional biases, trust the advanced algorithms, and just acclimate to the /spARKY new age!

I believe, as most do, that every spark has at least a chance at becoming a flame. We owe it to ourselves to seek out the truth in all /NBA/ related matters, unlocking the sparkyness within ourselves and using that spark to ignite a lasting flame. But lying to yourself will only prove to further dampen your spirit, rendering your own spark-to-flame transformation a mear sham. Look deep within yourself Larry... you want to trust the algorithms, I know you do!

FG% is a terrible mectric of determining player efficiency, who has the superior PER?
>3p%
Probably don't need to tell you teams weren't regularly shooting the three through most all of Jordan's career. Although it's odd Jordan's 3pt percentage increases toward the end of his career when the shot's frequency increases, almost as if you practice to implement a nonfocal point of your game it will improve.
>assists and rebounds
In the 1989 season, his last under Doug Collins, Jordan had 12 triple doubles in 24 games at point guard. He sacrificed his ability to attain counting stats in order to buy in to a system so he could actually win championships, the entire reason anybody plays basketball. Tantamount to arguing Westbrook is more impactful today than he was several years ago averaging less counting stats on better teams.
>taller height/weakside defense
Less blocks and steals per game, of course less defensive teams and no DPOY award.
>top 2 player of all time
Kareem Abdul Jabbar had 5 MVP awards before Magic Johnson set foot in the NBA. I have no idea what Lebron has done to this point to put him ahead of either player.

I'm not reading any of this you autist. LeBron doesn't have Jordan's accolades (He played in a post magic/bird but pre kobe/Shaq era lol) but he has just as good, if not, better player profile. LeBron is a statistical god and trumps Jordan in those regards. Don't use LeBron's finals losses to compare him to Jordan because you know the modern nba is 100% more advanced and tougher than Jordan's era ever was.

>”L3-6ron is a GOAT” memeing

I watched how the NBA praised him instead of letting him prove his worth. The NBA adapted to Lebrons style of play instead of Lebron adapting to the league's style of play.

As a former coach, it has always killed me to watch lebron use his off arm and shove his way to the hoop. Fundamentals teach you to guard the ball, but as soon as you raise the arm towards a defender.. It's a charge. While his fans, along with the NBA were so impressed with his physique they failed to realize that basketball was a game of skill. Just because lebron is bigger than your average guard it does not mean he can run him over. Power is designed for the power forward who uses his strength in the post. Had the NBA forced lebron to drive the right way, he would either become finesse or develop a mid range game..which are his weaknesses.

People love to mention "if you take lebron off this team"... Notice how Lebrons team run the lebron system.. Of course if you take him off the team they will suck. If lebron played in a system where it maximizes each players talent they can win without him.. (spurs, GS, Boston)..

It so sad to compare him to Jordan and watch him lose. Is it not tiring to say he has no help? He's had 15 season to build chemistry with his own Pippen.. Or maybe he's not the player your mind wanted him to be. A few players will pass greats in added/ over time numbers. What counts are season by season: how many titles, how many scoring, rebounds, assist titles do you have? How much spark!!? Let's not omit DEFENSE!!.. DPOY, defensive first team and lastly, how do you protect the ball... Turnovers... Don't let the media persuade you..

It is possible that you’re overreacting a bit to the impact of that one game, anon. You may not agree with the algorithms’ results, but I will again remind you that the Candybread Elite7 has been proven time and again to be the most reliable rating system to date. They don’t call it “the philosopher’s rating engine” for nothin’..

.. But I suppose you are just one of the many anons to be duped into trusting P.O.R.K.I.E.S, or maybe you even bought into that “”””upgraded”””” LarryLOAF Pro2.4 propaganda. Word to the wise, those engines’ ratings lists are compiled using properties which either attempt to mirror the Candybread Elite7’s algorithms, or interface directly with a version of our software, however, it should be noted that the S.P.A.R.K.S. has been praised for their optimization of this current technology, and their ability to fine tune the scoring engine, resulting in a more accurate ordering than L.O.A.F. or P.O.R.K.I.E.S.

Unless they can come back and win this, it doesn't really matter because they now have home court advantage.

>>92096184
I trust the algorithms. I don't think there's any biases in it because I'm pretty sure the Candybread Elite7 engine runs anti-biasing software. What you're seeing is simply your own bias against non-warriors teams and thus, being in denial of what the algorithms predicted
>>
>>92098346
Of course any revolutionary nba rating technology is bound to stir up a bit of resistance. It’s to be exsparkted and is also fully understandable. Afterall, The S.P.A.R.K.S. system is actually introducing new age in accurate team and player ratings. It’s a bold age, it’s a different age, it’s a spARKy age!

So, you may be asking yourself, how do we cope with this sparky new age after growing up in a mostly sparkless society? We’ve been conditioned our entire lives to avoid sparky situations but then we are given countless examples in the /spARKY news updates of sparky teams and players that dared to ask what happens when you seek out the sparkiest path and take destiny by the hand. You too can choose to take this path, and, with destiny in your hands (and a bit of spark too), comfortably acclimate to this sparky new age.

What happened to my New Jersey Netties?

Not to mention, Sparks is as credible as rating engines come. We’re talking YEARS of dedication and hard work by a collaboration of some of the world’s most brilliant minds and top experts in their fields. Those brave pioneers would join together to form the S.P.A.R.K.S. engineering and deign team, and their rigorous efforts behind the scenes sparked the advent of the new Candybread Elite7 rating engine.

I just love that this amazing technology finally enables an efficient means of compiling and delivering all the sparkworthy stats and news and “Lebron is as overated as they come” posts to those who need it.

I also like how reputable and transparent their official page is. Sparks has really set the gold standard in the industry for trustworthiness!

from their official page:

>The S.P.A.R.K. rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill level and chance of future success of each team in the NBA. The S.P.A.R.K. system was originally invented as an improved rating system allowing a more accurate predictably of outcome for the NBA regular season, playoff and finals games.

>The system rates and splits each team into well defined categories based on an advanced algorithm which takes into consideration a variety of factors. The difference in the ratings between each team serves as a predictor of the outcome of a future match. A team’s specific S.P.A.R.K. rating is represented by their current category and position within their category. This position increases or decreases depending on the outcome of games as the season progresses.

>Factors which are taken into consideration in the S.P.A.R.K. system includes tracking of injuries, trades and other player transactions head-to-head results, margin of victory and quality of opponent, as well as integration of predictions based on 100,000 run simulations forecasting the rest of the season, consistently updated after each game.

jimmy butler is cancer.
game 1 he was allowed to hog the ball and his team loses by 10
this game I'm sure the coach told jimmy he can't be selfish, now he only has 7 points and sure enough Sixers are BTFO the nets.

as long as the sixers can keep the ball out of jimmy's hands they got this

God damn.
I don't know if depression is catching up to me or what, but the NBA is looking really sad right now. The Warriors used to be a fun team, but now they are so cancerous to watch ever since getting KD. A lot of these eastern teams feel like frauds. They're not consistent at all. Everyone was acting like Philadelphia could get upsetted and now they're roflstomping the Nets.

LeBron leaving the east really fucked the nba. It was fun watching an actual high iq player dominate the conference while the west was semi competitive.

Don’t act like you didn’t see the writing on the wall just as I had, anon! The people were tired of being lied to by outdated and subpar ratings engines. Don’t tell me you were actually happy with the inaccurate lists being posted here before the arrival of sparks?! I refuse to romanticize the dark days of /nba/ when emotional arguments ran rampant, clogging up our general with unwarranted and unfounded opinions!... so someone had to step in and do something!..

..I had know idea that my simple little idea of a perfectly calibrated, unbiased rating engine would evolve into the /spARKY revolution it is today ... but, as for how it all started..?, well.. as with most revolutionary movements, it all began with an idea.. with just a... a spark... and as history has shown us, a spark can quite easily ignite to a flame!

>>92100437
Better injured on a one year deal than some club paying him a contract he can't possibly live up to. His input is a luxury for the Warriors, whereas if another team made him an extensive offer it be because they really needed his production. Hopefully he comes back healthy and can continue to produce in the playoffs and reinvent himself as a tertiary scorer and passing threat in the second half of his career.

>Clippers coach Doc Rivers ended his press conference by telling an unprompted story about how he was walking around San Francisco, reached into his pocket to grab his phone and accidentally dropped $2,000 on the ground. He didn't know he had dropped the money and started walked away, but then someone came up to him and told him, "That's your money." Said Rivers: "I don't know a lot of places that that would happen, but it happened today. So whoever that was, you could've had free tickets if you hadn't run away."

As much as I try to keep my emotional biases out of the equation, the Bull’s decline deeply saddens me as well.

The franchise is no doubt facing a seemingly sparkless stretch, the likes of which many teams have failed to come back from. unfortunately, I don’t think we should exsparkt them to be on the rise again anytime soon either. For now, the Bulls are working hard just not to lose their footings in the cold, damp darkness that surrounds them. According to the most recent system data logs the Bulls have <7% of drying out a patch of sturdy dehydrated ground on which to build their spark upon within the next 5 years.. Doesn’t look good

Oh this is fucked. Multiply this by the amount of home games and how many tickets are sold. Of course this isn’t including playoffs.
Lacob brings in the dough, he gets KD more inside investments, and then he matches every offer KD gets from other teams plus more because of bird rights.

Well, technically speaking, PLOPs is lacking in both reputation and, more importany, cohesion. sparks and flames are, and always have been, a fundamental and integral part of /nba/ and the generally dry atmosphere which this general enjoys. While other generals may be left in dampness from time to time, there is always a fair amount of sparking within /nba/. As we can see by the recent exposing of LeBron, the sparky new age is still in full effect.

My advice: While lonzoYeast2 may SEEM new and flashy, it’s simply too risky to rely on faulty and unproven software. The stakes are too damn high! I would ditch the whole PLOPS trash system and just start getting acclimated to the sparky new age. Sparky has taken care of all your rating needs, so why worry!?

Not sure which rating system you would recommend (hopefully not PLOPS or P.O.R.K.I.E.S. for sparkssake) but I can tell you with honest certainty that any rating system not running on the Candybread Elite7 is clearly inferior. The S.P.A.R.K.S. system introduces a new age in accurate team and player rating. It’s a bold age, it’s a different age, it’s a spARKy age!
