Who cares about the rest?
so, durant played like only 1 season in his whole carewer without at least 2 hall of famers as teammates?

Are the Nets sure that Kyrie is even coming back? And when he does come back, are they sure that he's gonna be happy about the team adding the highest USG% player in the league next to him and KD? There was already reported friction between him and the front office
My thundies finna gonna get blown out but at least it's good to know that >we HAVE to draft a big to not get killed by AD like this
>>105291288couldve had ben simmons, thybulle, shake and a boat of picks too
Last year I said the Hawks would have money to add free agents and have a chance to make the playoffsThis year I'm saying the Knicks will have a lot of money and will draw excellent free agents who want to play with RandleThe Knicks will be an excellent team next year.Yes, next year.
>>105291282Idk about that...

>>105291288Pray that they lose because of lack of depth, Brooklyn is going to try and recreate what GS did but nash is too much of a fucking retard to pull it off. He doesn't realize KYrie isn't Curry, and Harden is fat. Oh and KD isn't what he was, we'll see how he holds up when teams turn it on for the post-season. >>105291316philly didn't want anything to do with houston if simmons was involved.
>>105291288that's what's fucked about the NBA. The wrong player can totally fuck a franchise up for years.
>hating a player so much you namefag after themtalk about rent free
I'm not anti mask at all, but coaches and players wearing masks on the sideline is absolutely pointless when they are taking them off all the time to talk

>keeping luka out so he doesnt get the triple double
>>105291381It's literally just stupid fucking optics.
>>105291381of course it's pointless, but they have to wear them to send a message to expectators

>>105291385The Raptors need a C badly. Baynes and Len are trash. Boucher is good but shouldn't be starting yet.
>>105291380what makes it really pathetic is the faggot never watched him play
>>105291439Yeah, rjs dad and Nash were buddies.
>>105291343no, but the result is the same: Kyrie is now the 3rd option on offense and he was mega-butthurt last time something like that happened
>all these blowouts
KCP is fucking fast as shit.
>>105291439canada has like 1m people, they all know each other lmao
LET'S GO RJ
>>105291463Maybe if he fucking played people wouldn't go out of their way to find other options.
>1 pick is the difference between the knicks being elite vs wating 4 years on some bum

>>105291454you're telling me he hates players he's never even seen? why would somebody do that?
>>105291275The New York Knickerbockers
I'm sure no team wants to deal with Kyrie's shit. Maybe he gets Carmelo'd.

They never tell you when they're going to happen and they just kind of take over your computer with little regard to what they may be interrupting at the moment or respect for time.I think it's a mindless big tech thing.

I'll talk more about the Harden trade when I have time ;)
>SECwho cares>ACCwho caresReal basketball is played in the Big 12

>>105291716oh my bad. fuck that dude regardless
>julius randle is STILL the best scorer on this team
>>105291756it's cool. I was following AI since his sophomore year in hs.
Anyways, about the Harden trade. People just add Kyrie/KD/Harden together and assume three 30 point scorers put together means they'll drop 90 a game because they just added the numbers up. Things aren't always that simple in reality. It's about chemistry too. Lots of times, ESPECIALLY on a championship-level team like my Lakies, players have to *condense* their games, so to speak. Especially where they may not get to touch the ball as often on offense as they'd like. They have to find other ways to positively contribute if their goal is to win a title. This is where having a well-rounded skill set helps. You can just pick the right tool out of the toolbox when you need to. And this kind of thing might take time. We'll see how the Nets do. The underrated thing about LeBron/AD's instant success on my Lakies may not have been their scoring, but what they can do on the court OUTSIDE of scoring, which may very well be more even MORE valuable than the points they score. But they can both still score too obviously ;)
How bad is gordos injury hornet bros? >nothing good ever lasts for this team
>>105291800based first time i saw him was at georgetown
>>105291723Like half of the people that played last game are no longer on the nets lmaoKD can't 1v5 his way through the playoffs
>>10529183349 now.>>105291845he was a terror at Georgetown. I remember thinking there's no way he can do that shit in the NBA.
>>105291818AD seems like a bro and is humble with his success. The rest of those guys are head cases that want the world to revolve around them (except maybe KD).
>>105291818You better get your cope in before it's too late
>>105291300wet[spoiler]aoc that is[/spoiler]
>>105291900KD is definitely a head case, just not on the level of Kyrie or Harden
>>105291888same everyone in my house thought he'd be a massive bust because of how small he was
Grade what the Rockets got in return for le beard man.
>>105291377Yeah but they can also save a fuck up of a franchise like Cleveland.
>>105291632Who's bench are they planning to beat? The nets have Chiozza, Shamet, and TLC. They won't do shit, KD is going to have to play high minutes.
>>105291951Depends entirely on what they can make of those picks, which almost certainly means they fucked it up
>>105291923It's funny that he's clowned for not earning his rings and now if the Nets manage to win, he still won't get acknowledged. He's cursed with insecurity.
>>105291795dude, make a trade and make room for Lonzo.
One more thing I wanted to add is that KD/Kyrie/Harden all can get BUCKETS, which is very valuable in any situation. As in, they can create their own shot and get it off against any defense. They don't always need a dime but it helps. It's easier if they do obviously but during the course of a game, sometimes you'll be able to get a wide-open shot, sometimes you won't. It really depends on the situation and matchup. Anyways, people obviously have their opinions on *superteams*, BUT one thing I've definitely noticed is how much additional interest and attention this trade has produced for the league in general. Even I'm kind of more enthusiastic when I'm usually a bit jaded ;) Even if it means my Lakies will have a more challenging road to a repeat, speaking from a league-wide perspective it does increases the level of competition and quality of play which helps move things forward in general. This can very well be a good thing ;)
the knicks were who we thought they were
>>105291288>kyrie retires to go make his own meme league that never gets off the ground because he vanishes>harden continues to shoot 10% from 3 for the rest of time>kd quits every season because it's too hard like he did last seasonsounds more like 5 years of lottery picks to me
We will save you
Is this the Lakespic group therapy thread?
Lebron decided to become 7ft Klay Thompson tonight I suppose
>>105291948In his mvp season he was worse than Andrew Wiggins so far this season.The only two less efficient than mvp iverson in the 50 highest volume guys so far this year are RJ Barret and Cedi Osman.
>>105292115based on what?
Maybe it’s because I’m a pretty casual NBA fan, but I don’t understand how Harden fits on this team. Isn’t his whole thing iso ball and having the ball in his hands most of the time? Would that not work with the other 2 stars that want the ball?
>>105292089this thread doesn't even compare to normy social media. chicano cope is off the charts right now. shit really went from>3PEAT!! DO IT FOR KOOOOOBEEEEall the way to>L-Lakers in 6...
>>105292133He's a hall of fame player
>>105292133He couldnt even fit with Chris Paul. There is absolutely no way he gels with Kyrie lol
>>105292053Every team in the NBA is different. We try to accept them for who they are But the Laker way is one of a kind ;)
>>105292133It works because Kyrie isn't gonna play and KD can work with kickout 3s
>>105292147So is at least one of the other two.
>>105292133If they put their best perimeter defender on him, kyrie can go score a bunch. They can run a triangle. They can run pick and rolls with huge scoring threats while also there's a 3rd option in the corner.
>>105292133if he's a good player he'll figure out how to make it work. if you watch the nets its pretty clear that kyrie and kd have been very unselfish so far
>>105292174Yet you still don't understand what's being said
Did the "Ben Simmons is good" meme die today?
LeBron's numbers this year are ridiculous
>>105292133nets unironically have enough talent to run a triangle offense in the year 2011+10if you dont know what a triangle offense then google it
>>105292188I legitimately don’t. Is it not basic math that if one guy hogs the ball, then there is only so much the other two can do? I can understand two guys going back and forth, but three?
gotta take a Kyle Lowry lads
>>105292198yes. it became real.
>>105292204The worst thing for anyone happened. Lebron is actually shooting well off the ball
>>105292225>gotta take a phat black asswhat did he mean by this?
>>105292221Stop being a dumbass
>>105292106>The only two less efficient than mvp iverson in the 50 highest volume guys so far this year are RJ Barret and Cedi Osman.AI played in the handcheck era though. Player efficiency has been up across the board since handcheck was removed. Also, one more thing is AI was a primary shot creator for his teams. The offense ran through him(because it had to at times) and a lot of their points came either directly or indirectly(assists or offensive rebounds) and such. It's why I don't think it's a fair comparison since there are two sets of rules here ;)
>>105292198>This tall guy gets rebounds and gives the ball to other people so they can score. Look at all those rebounds and assists, amazing
>>105292253Never. Basketball just doesn’t make sense. Football is way more complex yet it’s much easier to understand.
>>105292276ben simmons will go for 15/10/10 on 60% shooting with 2 blocks and 2 steals and you faggots still wouldnt be impressed
why do people excuse basketball player egos and just the overall me first attitudes.I wish somebody could have busted Lebron's kneecaps prior to his NBA debut. He has been a blight and cancer and destroyed the NBA.SUPER TEAMS ruined this sport and you fucking know it.
>>105291297Kyrie dipped to tank his value and look unstable. It took him off the trade block bc other teams don't want that in the locker room.
>>105292301If Adam Silver could remove every team and just have Knicks/Celtics vs Lakers every day he would.
>>105292282Durant is a hall of fame player. Harden is a hall of fame player. This makes the Nets a good team. Neither player has been selfish on the court
>>105292301successful people largely get to do whatever the fuck they want in all walks of life. Robert Kraft gets to bang prostitutes, chris brown gets to beat up people, conner can throw shit at buses, etc.
>The Rapors trade Kyle Lowry, Norman Powell and two 1st round picks (24) (26) for John Wall and Jarret Allen
>>105292274Alright then, during his mvp season here were guards better than iverson:Vince CarterTracy McGradyRay AllenJason TerryKobe BryantSteve FrancisAllan HoustonThe list continues, but those guys had less shot attempts.
>>105292282>Basketball just doesn’t make sense. Football is way more complex yet it’s much easier to understand.Think so? How come? No shade just curious as to why ;)
>>105292301NBA is a pussy league. Lebron's monkey antics should've been stopped a long time ago. Hard fouls until he learns how to behave.
>>105292348We don’t have Jarrett Allen
>>105292357Because the lakies
>>105291381Many covid protocols are pointless. They do it for the PR.
Nets trade Kyrie for Westbrook, and some depth, to get that ole OKC team back together for one last run against LeBron James.
>>105292347when you combine blacks + sports egos they really do have a god complex. The NBA is just an EGO factory for young black men to behave in such materialistic and vapid ways. They are the most liberal and gayest of the major sports. You dont hear about black hockey players hooking up with tranny youtubers and shit or getting btfo in boxing matches with zoomer faggot disney channel stars.
>Obi Toppin - 57 seconds
>Lakers lead the league in and-1sdid you expect anything differently
>>105291381I can't stop laughing any time a coach pulls down his mask to yell at a ref. Suddenly masks don't save lives.
>>105292400Lakers have the most post presence in the league so it doesn't surprise me
>>105292412yes. nba fans are very much cringe.
>>105292400no i expected the lakers to be the most refballed team in the nba
>>105292301Super teams have been part of the sport since my Minneapolis Lakies had the two highest paid players in the world and had to play the Globetrotters to get any actual competition.
>>105292419They have the 10th highest close range shot rate.
>>105292400Don't foul us then...
>>105292301Superteams have dominated the league since the beginning. Enough with this retarded ass casual watcher meme.
Damn. All these games on tonight are garbage.
>>105292494Post presence isn't just making shots from close range
>>105292507the only true last super team was the chicago bulls. The problem with the league now is this mercenary faggotry amongst players. Fucking show some loyalty to the teams who invest in you. Dont become a cancer so you can get traded to play with LeApe and get your consolation ring like a faggot.
>>105292347>successful people largely get to do whatever the fuck they want in all walks of life. Robert Kraft gets to bang prostitutes, chris brown gets to beat up people, conner can throw shit at buses, etc.LeBron has never been in trouble off the court though. I don't think Kyrie/Harden have been either. Things like "not wearing a mask" and "getting to beat up women" are completely different things on the moral scale. There are degrees to these kinds of things. They talk about not wearing a mask like it's some kind of crime or some shit nowadays because it violates their norms of groupthink/conformity or whatever. Personally I think it's a bit ridiculous. People operating with ulterior motives like like pettiness or spite should not overrule their moral compass. Just my opinion though ;)
Kyrie ain’t been the same since Kehlani cheated on him....
>>105292513Sure, but you can't get an and one if you don't attempt a shot.
Globetrotters vs WNBA all-Star team, who wins?
>>105291297Is there a reason they can't trade Kyrie? Imagine how good that team would be with Deandre, a pick and pop 4, KD, harden, and a pg who can spot up and defend
>up 18 with 3 mins to go>now you're using all your timeouts to ensure you don't lose your 5 point lead in the last 17 seconds state of it
>>105291439For me it's STPeach
What happened to Zion, he still improving and shit?
Somebody post a a Charlotte hornets themed sad pepe please
>>105291448Their win a few nights ago was impressive. But where do you go when you lose your best player for nothing and traded everyone else away
Who's this euro methhead on okc?
>>105292539>Fucking show some loyalty to the teams who invest in youHow about no, faggot. These shifty organizations don't deserve jack shit and they aren't created equally. I'm glad the players can see that.
>>105292354Sure. I agree about Kobr and maybe TMac/Vince/Ray Allen. But you also have to adjust for the role on their team and situation. Like if you put any of those players on the Sixers would they do a better job? That's the kind of scenario I was picturing. Also I think Iverson had better efficiency(even above league average I think) when he was on the Nuggets with Melo. A lot of this stuff is really situational. My point being that stats are a usually good measurement but they aren't always everything ;)
>>105292636>7' 195lbsGet this man a hamburger

>>105292661hahahaDid she seriously say that?
>>105292664This is coming from the same drooling retard that said players should be loyal to organizations that can trade them for no reason. Stay in school.
>>105292694the team comes first. not the player. Fuck LeBitch and his merc faggotry.
>>105292614He's coofing tonight. He has looked good though. His team lacks spacing but he's putting up good points on good efficiency. Over 60% of his attempts are assisted. His biggest weakness on offense is free throws. It's not Shaq tier, but players can be rougher with him inside. His defense is questionable.
>>105291641>>105292675she has the most annoying voice in sports broadcasting
that 'Trez lean in shot put shot is ugly as shit.
>>105291818Is this pasta?I didn't watch last year but I actually like this Lakers team. Lebron just passes it to wide open guys who hit their shots, and AD gets a few looks and knows how to get in his spot. No one is trying to do alley oops or put up terrible shots.
Wasn't Exum supposed to be legendary. What happened to him?
Okay Poku, I see you
>>105292777He didn't go to the lakers
poku looking like he's going to be a guy, i'm so happy
>>105292777always injured and wasnt that talented to begin with, just very athletic
>>105292664Operation is a child's game. Go tell that to a surgeon who's making millions because he's really good at not touching the edges.
>>105292501Based ;) This has been a thing for a while now dating back to Shaw (and the Hack-a-Shaw). Kobr also got hammered a lot but neither of them were floppers. My Lakies have always been known for going hard to the rim. They're also just kind of difficult to ref in general because of their physicality and direct style of play. But that's how championships are won. But it's a meme that they get refball. Especially in recent seasons where they've been getting hammered in the paint with no call but the NBA will call ticky-tack soft calls on the perimeter because they want to see higher-scoring games or something. It is what it is ;)
>>105292777He's from the same country as Ben Simmons
>>105292651He put up a good season or two near the end, 2003 and 2005 were good for him.Carter and Mcgrady probably do about the same on that team, they were close to his level of field goal attempts.
>>105292812Simmons will probably finish in the top ten for MVP.
>>105292204It's nice to be able to say "he's the best player in the league by about 10 miles" and not be angry about it.
>>105291288Based Presti wins again
>>105292221In basketball they run plays off ball to get guys open. Look at the other players on the court next time to see what they're up to
>>105292758Last year's team was more halfcourt. They had veterans like Rondo and Duh-wight who knew how to control the pace and flow of games. This year's team likes to get out in transition more. They'll do highlight-reel stuff from time to time but the their focus is on handling business and winning games. They have different gears. They have games when they're running the other team off the floor. Other games they're locking down on D. They can win games a lot of different ways like a real championship-level team does ;)
That 7ft giga incel is actually pretty okay at basketball
>>105292282Because football actually isn't complex. Not going to derail things but anyone whose played can tell you. The only challenging part is remembering what the plays are
Could the Lakers commentators be anymore smug? They deserve to have AD and LeBron out.
>>105292886that poku guy? he is lol. got a nice dunk.

>>105292950Why is that? ;) Objectively they usually have more experience with different situations. If anything, they can be more unbiased since they've seen a lot of stuff and can draw the right comparisons as well as keep things in proper perspective ;)

If anything celebrities get punished more severely because they have to suffer public humiliation on top of criminal punishment. If Chris Brown was a minimum wagie who beat the shit out of his girlfriend he'd quietly get a year of probation and go back to work the next day. Robert Kraft got hit with the exact same charges as the other 18 guys caught in his prostitution sting, except nobody cares who they are. In an average city there are hundreds, if not thousands of guys fucking hookers ever night and no one cares. If Conor and all of his friends were nobodies who had gotten into a brawl the cops wouldn't have even wasted their time trying to figure out who did what so they could hand out some dumb misdemeanor charges.

>>105293434Unironically yes. What’s the worst that happens? You hate it and know you’re not a fag? Maybe you like it cuz you’re a little gay boy.
>>105292204>his normal averages are better than almost everyones best>Still manages to improve despite being 18 years in.LeGod, I kneel.
>>105291486based tiny HugS
Can you come up with a more hate-able trio of players on one team than Harden, Kyrie, and KD? I can't think of one now and I'm drawing a blank for recent history.>WarriorsNo one hates Klay.>HeatlesI don't know anyone who could hate Chris Bosh.>Celtics Big 3Might be the closest, but the only people that I can think of that truly hate Ray Allen are his former teammates from that team and salty Celtics fans.
>>105293475>>105293483I know Allen leaving at the end of season but still a big lossHard for me to trust a vegan center like Deandre Jordan
explain to me how the timberwolves lose to a grizzlies team without ja and JJJ
>>105293535The wolves are the worst team in the league
>>105293535Literally no defense.
How are Gen X Jordanfags going to cope when LeBron 3peats with the Lakers?
>>105291288Granted sixers would've been fleeced more had they agreed
I thought that #1 draft pick meant to save Wolves
Nickiel Alexander walker can ball. If you're new Orleans, you have to dangle lonzo and Redick out there for a trade. >>105293569Watch those retards win enough games to give the warriors another high lottery pick (currently top 3 protected)
>>105293425everyone. there bench went from starters to 3rdd string g-leaguers
>>105291800>not following him when he was an ELITE quarterback not going to make it bro
>>105293615>he thought another zoomer was going to solve the Timberzoomers problem
>>105292301LeBron has honored every single one of his contracts and won a title as the FMVP for each of his teams. He's done nothing wrong.
>>105293530I hate Klay, Bosh and Allen.
the clippers look... different this year
>>105293530Kyrie is the only hateable player for me, don't care about Durant anymore
>>105293655he's a coach killer
>>105293615Nobody on the Wolves is taking the game seriously. It's why Jimmy Butler got the fuck out of there. Zoomers are not dedicated.Adding draft picks doesn't solve that.
>nets initially offered kyrie and houston didn't want himTHE ABSOLUTE STATE
>>105293530Harden, Kyrie, and KD are /ourguys/ you dumb tourist.
>>105293774Honest to god who would even want him now?
>>105293774Maybe Rockets aren't hopeless....
>>105293703>LeBron>coach killerSpoelstra and Vogel are the only good coaches he's ever had.
>>105293636I still live in the Hampton Roads area. I remember all of that even though it feels like a lifetime ago-pre internet, the sports page of the Daily Press was virtually Allen Iverson year round. He was even a pretty good baseball player. I don't remember Bethel hardly ever doing shit before or after him.
>>105293782harden will never be /ourguy/, bitch nigga
>>105293530lebron bosh and wadekg pierce and allenkd curry and klaythis big 3 is by far my favorite
my lakies are so strong :O
>>105293774No shit. Kyrie is pulling these stunts on a team he chose to be play for. What would he do if he got traded somewhere he doesn't want to be? Hell, he might have just retired if he got traded to Houston.
Rick Ross, flat earth kyrie, and “the servant”, I don’t understand how this meme is supposed to make it out of the first round
Kyrie to Detroit for Derrick Rose, Josh Jackson, and Mason Plumlee
breakfast defectors unite!!
>>105293843>Hell, he might have just retired if he got traded to Houston.Damn it Houston, we were almost there...
>>105293875Na I need Kyrie to stay to keep talking shit about Lebron
>>105293863Kyrie to NYK for toppin, robinson, and randle.
its gonna be netslol and lakerslol for the next 3 years isn't it?
>>105291300>high school 3yikes
I need me a mixed girl bros...
>>105291236>Who cares about the rest?ANYONE NOT IN HOUSTON OR BROOKLYN
>>105293940>nba long 2based
Mavs bros....I kneel
>>105293821>he hates scoring points and strip clubs
>losing to the kangz
>>105293928Nets won't be good anymore, they traded the reason they were good. I'm going to fucking flip if Kyrie all of a sudden shows up to hoop, I hate him so fucking much. If he doesn't show, they're going on a 6 game losing streak but something tells me basketball is more important than social justice is to him now.
>>105293984oh hi defrozen
>>105293821>scared to type niggerYou'll never be a woman.
>>105294008you just described allen iverson you clown
Clippers are an entire team of 3 and D
firing alvin gentry was a mistake
>>105294027Allen iverson was below average at scoring points, he just got more tries than anyone else
Just checked out the Lakers schedule. Holy shit, the Lakers are absolute frauds.
>>105293530Remember the Chris Bosh dinosaur memes?
>>105294011They traded Durant?
The Knicks are now back to their rightful place in the cosmos after a great start to the season.
>>105294065They beat the 4 worst teams in the league, ON THE ROAD :O
>>105294112SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
Couldnt care less about apehoop but what did that niggy Kyrie Irving do
>Obadiah Toppin>1 minute>0 points>0 rebounds>0 assists
>>105294192He hasn't played a game in like a week citing "personal reasons"
he's gonna make it bros :))
NBA is trash nowYou'll never see anything like a Mike Conley lead Grizzlies team go toe to toe with the Warriors again. You'll never see meaningful rivalries again, or even midget fights like Celtics vs Wizards
>>105294192he's pulling a kanye west thinking he's a very influential socio-political figure in the black community when in reality he's just stealing money from the nets and pissing off his teammates and coaches by not showing up and going to parties and fundraisers
>>105294200Well I mean.. it was just a minute
>>105294227calm downja and jjj will be back
>>105294065I remember this exact same meme from last year>Yeah the Lakers are doing well now but wait until December!
>>105294192Took time off to party no lie. Everything else is media bullshit.
>>105294200my boy obi literally needs more time
>Rockets tried to get Simmons and Maxey
>>105291288I'm so mad.I wanted the philly deal
Kyrie for Westbrook is the final chess piece to move,,,
>>105292301fuck off karceno u dumb bitch
>>105294301Fertitta was just using Morey
>>105294301Based Ben was never on the table. It was just using the media to try to pump up Harden's price.
>>105294318Unironically this IF it hadn't been a disaster in HOU with Harden and Russ already. Literally ruind what could have been OG kino
>>105294343They worked well together until Westbrook got injured and corona.
>>105294277>Took time off to party no lie. Everything else is media bullshit.I still can't believe people bought into the bullshit about him being so upset about the stuff at the Capitol that he refused to play. Maybe I'm just desensitized to all of this crap, but that barely phased me. I feel like anyone who's reaction was anything more than laughing at the spectacle is lying.
>>105292301>SUPER TEAMS ruined this sport>not shitty rules and blatant rigging of games
>>105294350Wasn't it so bad they both wanted the other gone?
>>105294358This, eliminating hand checking made the sport objectively softer
For me, it's>my team is goodThere's nothing wrong with the sport.>my team is badFuck this sport. It's ruined.
>>1052918461v5? he's gonna have james harden you dumb fuck. plus they have 3 roster spots now they're gonna add good vets who get bought out.
>>105294352it was a serious event imo, but wasn't he not playing before it happened? idk, he's role playing as an activist or whatever, but he's not doing it the right way. He's acting like he's better than the league and everyone else. SAS is right, just retire already.
I'm not in to black women usually but sage steele is hot.
>>105294375No, Westbrook wanted out of the Rockets, Harden wanted out of the Rockets.It's because the organization. The owner.
>>105294437>1v5? he's gonna have james harden you dumb fuck.If Harden doesn't have the ball in his hands, it might as well be 1v5.
>>105294431>10 games into the regular season and everyone already knows who is going to be in the finals>GoodPick one.
>>105294477>10 games into the regular seasonEveryone already knew the Lakers were going to repeat before the season even started.
>>105294466Even youtube comments have higher bbiq than you retards
>>105294508Harden can play off ball, but you're delusional if you think he's going to do so willingly.
>>105294444how would you do a better job? or you just seething
>>105294538You just KNOW this guy will bitch about the league being unfair come playoff time, or 15 game win streak
>>105294488Yeah that's not good. The league was weak last year and the Lakers have gotten stronger with trades.What's the point of even playing?
>>105294477Everyone here knew it was gonna be Raptor-Clipper last year...
Alexander Walker going dummy
>>105294585They came close, then fell apart after the break.
>>105294553First, I wouldn't fuck over my team. LeBron and Kareem did it the right way, where they won first of all, but they sent the right message with their actions and words. Idk, what Kyrie has said lately but the last thing I heard from him was putting people down. He has to realize that the only reason people give a shit about what he says is because he can hoop. If he doesn't hoop, there is no difference between me and him talking about social justice.
>>105294601NAW has so much potential. Rather keep him over Lonzo
Haliburton is a damn good rookie
>>105294658he's no killa hayes
>>105294658>>105294664they're no maxey
>>105292780Goddamn. I'm probably just horny but goddamn
>>105294630>he can hoop no shit. it gives him more credibility too instead of someone who just cleans up his scraps
>>105294692horny for hornies?
>>105294700She can buzz me with her buzzer if you know what I mean
Blazers can only play defense on the 4th quarter...
>>105294444>mouthbreathing pawn gets quadsyou hate to see it
>"Today before this went down, I had a conversation with four or five people with teams and of course Kyrie was a huge topic of conversation in the league today," said Brian Windhorst. "I asked 'what do you guys think the trade market for Kyrie Irving is right now? Let's say something happened and they had to trade him.'>"And the answers that I got were wild. Wild! I got everything from.. and these were general managers and assistant general managers.>"I got everything from 'I think you can still get two firsts for him' to 'You can attach him in as filler.' I got that level of [differing opinions].">Windhorst indicated he doesn't believe Irving is in danger of being traded by the Nets at this time.">I know that the Rockets wanted nothing to do with Kyrie coming back in this deal," said Tim MacMahon. "Basically, their point was 'Okay, we're going to trade really one unhappy superstar for an even unhappier star who is not as good?' If Kyrie gets traded somewhere he doesn't want to be, I don't know if he's even going to report.'"
AD > Wadeyeah or nah?
>Story filed to ESPN: The NBA sent a memo to teams Wednesday night detailing plans to supplement its current testing regimen (a PCR test and a rapid test) with a 3rd, day-of-game PCR test that will return results for all players & referees by one hour before the start of the game.
that center hayes is a nice player
>>105294745>for an even unhappier star who is not as good? lol btfo, based Houston.
>>105294745Kyrie is a genius.
>>105294758nahyou can knitpick over stats or talent but dwyane wade's leadership and dominance with the heat was something very very few players matched. wade was an ALPHA and a killer on the floor and i'm not sold that AD is on the same level ad d wade in that regard.
>>105294758the Wade after 2011? Absolute, he still ahs cartilage in his knees
Did LeBron just intimidate Kyrie into being on his best behavior for most of the time they were together on the Cavs or did something happen to him in that last season that turned him into who he is now?
It's gonna be funny when Kyrie comes out as a tranny
>>105294771You may not like it, but this is what peak physical conditioning at the professional sports level looks like.
>>105294745>If Kyrie gets traded somewhere he doesn't want to be, I don't know if he's even going to report.'"Never thought of that. And it's 100% something he would do.
kyrie for lowry, og, and powell.
>>105294838no because he left. kelani fucked kyrie up and he was never the same. that being said lebron definitely sets a good culture with his teammates these days
for me it is Nemanja Bjelica the number 88!
Wow alexander-walker is putting shame on Lonzo's name
>>105294895It's kinda hot tho.
>>105294838He left his Christian church cult thing that also had Justin Bieber, then became "woke" from black centric political, religious, and spiritual Instagram accounts.
is bsm out for a week?
>mfw people complain about you joining a superteam so you join another team and make it a superteam
>Pretends to be a toxic so Rockets will accept the trade package without him in itKyrie is genius
When did Kyrie really start to show how crazy he is? Furthest back I can remember was threatening to get surgery unless the Cavs traded him.
>>105295064That was a logical move. He wanted out of being Lebron's sidekick and forced an ultimatum.
>>105295014Nets are going to ship him to Washington DC by the trade deadline.
>>105295182I get why he did it even if Kyrie will never be better than the 2nd best player on a contender, but it was the first example I could think of when he start showing how extreme his personality is.
>>105295064The moment that broke Kyriehttps://youtu.be/Ry9CqOz5aOo
>>105295226Could this truly be it? The moment it happened?
>>105291381wow it's almost like this whole thing is a sham, who'd a thunk it?
BOSTONVILLE CELTICS ARE ON THE MOVE LOL.>New Orleans Pelicans Receive: G Kemba Walker>Boston Celtics Receive: G Eric Bledsoe, G J.J. Redick, LAL 2021 1st Round Pick (via NOP)
Please save basketball and go on a 2011 dirk run.
>>105295191That's good desu. I want to see the OKC big three on the same team again.
>>105294318Then he final piece would be serge ibaka
>>105295299okay brudda, i got you
Seeing that the short handed Nets still beating the Knicks genuinely made me laugh.
Stacking superstars literally never fails. No one cares about MUH CHEMISTRY and MUH BALL DOMINANCE. The more stars you have, the better you do, simple. Proved time and time again.
>>105291282I NEED IT YESTERDAYWHY DON'T THE KEKS AT THE FO REALISE THIS
>>105295245>BledsoeAwful trade, there's a reason Giannis had him dumped.They might as well help out the Rockshits by getting Wall and Oladipo if they really needed guards.
this won the 10k on the 4 point play tonight.I was close and cashed out nicely, but totally whiffed on Val and Lillard, even tho I did hit on McCollum. Never occurred to me to play both.
>>105291282>siakim Can someone redpill me on him? Never heard of him
>>105295450yeah betting on portland is weird because if one guy is cold that night they willingly feed the other to carry the team
>>105295440The Nets are winning the finals, casual scum just can't resist being retarded at every turn
>kyrie is willing the sit out a yearWhat is this dude doing?
On Sportscenter they're showing the Rockets collpases in the playoffs and Harden's stats.They just showed this one that blew my mind.>Most Games Shooting Worse Than 20%(Last 5 Postseasons)Harden 5Jae Crowder 4Paul George 3
Jonas valanciunas objectively the best C in the world
>>105295476Minimum 10 FGA
Current Top 10 Players:1. LeBron James2. Kevin Durant3. Nikola Jokic4. Anthony Davis5. Steph Curry6. James Harden7. Luka Doncic8. Giannis Antetokounmpo9. Joel Embiid10. Kawhi Leonard
>>105295450Perfect lineup wasn't achieved tonight in the 4p. At 3100 Quickley went 9.5x but was 0.8% owned. He was the play tonight to differentiate yourself, assuming you nail the rest. NAW and Brown were free Bingo square values tonight.
>>105295456kawhi babbie that got overpaid
>>105295475Just waive him
>>105291670Galo is trash and washed up now. He can come off the bench maybe. Doncic and Jokic on any team would be BEAST though. Would be sick if he came to the Nuggets
>>105295475this wouldn't happen if david stern was in charge
>>105295476>>105295498>lebron doesnt make the list because he didnt even shoot engouh
>*ends the houston-harden era*
>>105295475Difference between the NFL and NBA is staggering in this regard. You gotta be like a first ballot HOFer type player for teams in the NFL to put up with this bs, even then, maybe not. Talent replaces talent routinely in the NFL. But the disparity in the NBA between the lowest to highest paid dudes is so fucking crazy that teams just deal with basketcases like Kyrie.If I were the Nets I'd jettison his ass to the sun. The worst thing your franchise can be tied to is a dude who doesn't give a shit.
>>105295505i love big men (no homo) but no way AD and Embiid are over steph and kawhi
>>105295533Not seeing a Warriors player in your image. Are they in the reflection of the glasses? Is Klay there?
>>105295533>*takes credit for the warriors dynasty*
>>105295475>willing to sit out a year if need befor what? what is he wanting the nets/nba to do?
Can't the Nets just waive Kyrie at this point
>>105295245that lakers first is actually a dud, shit's literally like 1-8 AND 20-30 protected
>>105295475What the fuck does he want? This dude is so fucking weird. Can the Nets terminate his contract?
>>105295536thisonly players i remember off the top of my head doing this was AB, OBJ and maybe jalen ramsey
doncic should try to break the wilt impregnation record
>>105295475>sat out bubble>willing to sit out this yearImagine wasting 2 years of your prime. If I'm KD I'm pushing to trade this dude for depth ASAP. I'd try to trade him to Orlando in exchange for Vucevic, Anthony, and Gordon. If they don't bite, take out Anthony and try to get a package involving Vucevic. Tell me the Magic won't say yes.
>>105295571>>105295563waiving him would screw their cap for a long time.he'd have to retire for the nets to keep their cap intact to still be flexible in the next couple years.or the nets would have to go through the nba in getting the money owed to kyrie cancelled - sort of like suing kyrie
>>105295604If he breached the contract they don't have to pay him
>>105295601the straw that broke the camel's back. lebron can take responsibility for breaking up the pacers, raptors and wizards... maybe celtics big 3 but they were old and washed. but he doesn't get harden and the rockets scalp, that belongs to steph
>>105295536That's because a star basketball player is worth more value to their teams than any quarterbacks in the NFL besides Mahomes or Brady are to their teams. A football player is only 1 of 22 players on the field and only plays one side of the ball. A basketball player is 1 of only 10 players on the court and has to play both sides of the ball. There's also a lot more money to go around on a team with 15 players on a roster, so max salary guys are huge investments.
>>105295614remind me, they dont have to pay him his salary but do they also get that cap space back?
>>105295601harden got eliminated by GSW 4 times bro
>>105295600if kyrie went awol on his bff durant, on a team that has done everything to cater to him over the last year or so, why would any other team want to touch him? He would just keep sitting out.
>>105295631He could possibly take credit for breaking up the clippers if they meet in the play-offs. would be cool. possibly ending the nets their first year. I love LeBron JAmes.
>>105295533Lebron never played Houston in the playoffs.
wake up to nets having the most stacked team ever. did they fucked themselves till 2030?
>>105295677>Lebron never played Houston in the playoffs.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfgSd6Dw_Hk
>>105295536Too bad Murican Football is the worst "sport" (if fat people running with an egg in their armpit count) there is.
>>105291236Nobody, it's the NBA. Top kek.
I hope the voices in Kyrie's head tell him to neck himself
>>105295655>breaking up the clippersThat's also on Steph and GSW
>>105295639I realize this, and I still don't think Kyrie is worth the hassle for the Nets. I think they should indefinitely suspend him w/cause to stop his paychecks. And I think they should let the internal politics settle the grievances. If I were the Nets he'd never suit up again for my team. He's THAT cancerous.
>>105295691>>105295709The bubble games? Honestly, I can't recall most of the matchups. 2020 was a blur.
Next Friday the Lakers play the Bucks and that’s when we learn whether they have been flattered by their cupcake schedule
>>105295806The Bucks played the Pistons 3 times in one week. You would never hear the end of it if that were the Lakers
>Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal told reporters at his team's media day Monday that he and John Wall are "definitely the best backcourt in the league.">Cavs guard Dion Waiters begs to differ. Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters said he and Kyrie Irving form the NBA's best backcourt. >"That's nonsense," Waiters said after practice Tuesday. "(Beal is) supposed to say that, but I know deep down, he's not messing with me and Ky (Kyrie Irving). I think me and Ky are the best backcourt, young backcourt. That's all."Kyrie has always been retarded. Ever since he thought this with Waiters and when he was challenging Kobe to a 1-1 for money. He's not worth it.
>>1052958248-24 Kobe lives
>>105295824Why do the Cavs have three first overall picks again
It's not a coincidence that Embiid FEASTS when Simmons is out. It's because the Sixers field a team who are worthy of guarding at the 3p line. When Simmons is in there's a free defender, because everyone will give him anything outside of 5 feet. Simmons even suiting up packs the paint against Philly's best player.Maxey is not a polished defender or anything even close, but he frees their offense and will improve on D. Simmons is a literal perennial all-star 10 years ago. In today's 3 point shooting league, he's worse than worthless, he's a problematic mole on your ass. He helps your opponent, and he isn't nearly good enough at the other things to be worth it.Also, same argument for Draymond, but Dray still provides more due to his D and versatility on that end.
>>105295824okay but is kyrie and harden on paper the goat back court?
>>105295824that's 100% waiters
okay unironic top 5 players of all time1. Mike2. Wilt3. Lebron4. Magic5. RusselWho you got?
>>105295862It's the splash brothers, since Kyrie is a snake oil salesman
>>105291981>Who's bench are they planning to beat?Dude you know that you can include starters in rotations and not all stars have to play in the same line-up every minute right?
>>105295696why are finbros like this? i dont go around insulting finnish baseball finbro
>>105295852everyone loves to point at the one (1) thing he can't do at an elite level. and the reality is those two have more good games together than bad ones. i rather have ben on the floor and jojo go 25/15 and blow teams out than jojo put up 50/20 and win by a score in overtime.the starters are undefeated this season when they're all out there. and we all know the fags wouldve been screaming that philly broke up the first good team they've had in years had they traded for harden today.
>>105295727I hope Klay can get healthy soon. I want to see that trio fighting for championship at least one more time.
>>105295881No It's probably Magic and Cooper, or Isiah and Dumars. But I think Magic is just a tier or 2 above Isiah so I think that gives them the edge.
>>105295912That's a horrible sport worth insulting friend, go ahead.
>>105295876jordanshaqlebronduncanduranti dont really rate players whose tape i haven't seen
>>105295914It's over dude, the achilles was the final straw. Klay won't be able to separate and the lift on his jumper won't be the same. He's not going to get 18 months recovery like Kd, and he's not the genetic freak Nique was.
>>105295913You can pick like 4 rando dudes on the Cavs who would average 7 rebs/7 assists if the team allowed it. Simmons is like Westbrook but seemingly way more cancerous without anyone noticing? If the dude initiating your offense CANNOT shoot, guess who gets rotated on hard and heavy? Those rebounds and assists will be spread out throughout the team if Simmons is gone Not like he's unique in that regard. And Embiid could literally become the most dominant big in the league.
>>105295912fin fishing for (You)s
>>105295929That's a nasty top 5 as well, but there's plenty of film from Wilt chamberlain archive and quite a few full game tapes where you can see Russel on display. It was definitely a different game. But take a look at Bills post season resume. Absolutely stepped up every facet of his game and might have one of the highest levels of natural basketball intuition ever.
>>105295913Simmons lack of shooting cripples them offensively. He only needs to shoot well enough to keep defences honest.They need him to get a jumper or trade him. Not overpaying for Harden was the right move but other opportunities will come up
>>105295941I mean, Simmons is much better defensively than Brick.
>>105292378>WestbrookA nice way to destroy a team
>>105295926visually its digusting but retards flopping into the sidelines river is comedy gold.
>>105295533go on, scamper away to the East COCKROACHES!
>>105295824Kyrie unironically better than Kobe
Harden gonna ruin whatever the Nets having going for them lol. What a fucking trainwreck of a person and team mate.
>>105296258>whatever the Nets having going for themRuin a 7-6 record? Not exactly playing like world beaters here lol
