    Apparently Noah didn't give 2 fucks about Clevelands ring ceremony and kept taking practice shots

    He went 0-1 in a Cleveland blowout

    In a blowout win against the Sixers last night, Thibs played Wiggins and Towns for 38 minutes, and he played Levine for 39 minutes.

    Some guys never change.

    No way Minn takes that deal. In fact they'd be stupid to trade either Towns or Wiggins. More likely they trade Dieng and/or Payne and possibly Rubio

    Lets play a game of NBA players who make over $15 million a year that don't even average double digit points

    Allen Crabbe 4 years $75 million 8.5 PPG (1 start this season)
    Evan Turner 4 years $70 million 8.8 PPG (0 starts this season)
    Chandler Parsons 4 years $95 million 7.7 PPG
    Bismack Biyombo 4 years $72 million 5.1 PPG (1 start)
    Ian Mahinmi 4 years $64 million has only played 1 game this season, never has averaged 10 PPG
    Joakim Noah 4 years $72 million 4.1 PPG
    Luol Deng 4 years $72 million 6.5 PPG
    Timofey Mozgov 4 years $64 million 8.6 PPG

    I was kidding of course, but I just thought it'd be fun to see Thibs do something like that.

    ESPN going all in on NBA teams resting their players for road games during the regular season. Last night and tonight they've been showing tweets from fans who are paying money to see players.

    Here's a solution: shorten the regular season to 66 games, but we know that isn't going to happen.

    What an idiot this guy is. So amazed that the Bulls got legit assets for him- Lopez who is a legit NBA starting center, and Grant who the Bulls don't seem to realize he's probably their best overall point guard. At least they didn't at the start, he got a lot of DNPs so Rondo could play.

    I think they're high on Carter-Williams. He can't shoot, but he's got intriguing size and gives a lot of effort on defense.

    The NBA All-Star Game is a spectacle that is hard to really put into words. Makes you kind of appreciate the MLB All-Star Game even with its flaws.

    What a deal for the Pelicans. The only asset they really gave up was Buddy Hield. But obviously the chance of him developing to a Cousins like player is around 1% and would be years away. The only thing of value they gave away was the draft pick but it's top 3 protected. It's a deep draft and the Pelicans are only 1.5 games out of a playoff spot it could easily be a non lottery pick.

    Just noticed the score for the 1st time

    :andruw:

    Is that a record? I know the scores are always ridiculous, but didn't think they got over the 160s too often.

    I only watched about 20 minutes before shutting it off. Boring as shit. Maybe 2 guys strolled back on defense per play. The only fouls occurred when somebody wanted to get subbed out. 90% of the shots were 3s and poorly executed alley oops.

    Right, I mean absolutely no fucks given at all for even running back and trying to play defense, but its not even like the offensive side was solid. Just kinda guys throwing up threes and behind the back shit without even trying.

    Just kinda had it on in the background last night while watching Youtube shit, but I was trying to figure out who this appeals to. I can't see any hardcore hoops fan wouldn't invest any time in this, but in terms of All Star festivities across all sports, this has to rank at the bottom.

    The headlines on SC were "Durant lobs one to Russ" and "Davis was allowed to score as much as he wanted."

    He's been better than expected and looks good physically. Still batshit mentally tho.

    Rose's value was solely dependent on his ability to get to the basket and finish or as a secondary role, get to the basket, draw defenders and create an open look for a teammate. This is because as it was pointed out, he's never been a good 3 point shooter or a plus defender. Thibs turned him into an average defender that gave effort but now since he's gotten more weird and stubborn as he's aged and without Thibs to influence him, he's a dogshit defender in an era with elite PGs where you need your PG to play defense. To compare, Westbrook's defense plus minus is 4.4.

    He can still get to the basket and score but not at the level he could when he was MVP. That's also decreased his ability to create assists. His usage rate is also way down because for those Bulls he had to do everything and now he's playing with Porzingis and Melo. Basically he's only effective when he has the ball, so his value actually diminishes when he plays with other star players.

    I'm not sure Steve Nash is a HoF'er in my world, but then again I've debated whether or not Shawn Marion is HoF worthy.

    I can't believe Rose never learned how to get to the free throw line. If your game is playing as a slasher, at some point you should have learned how to draw fouls.

    I once saw a video that showed Rose playing and it gave the idea that Rose was awful at drawing fouls because of the way he can contort his body to avoid contact. Additionally, it said because he so often contorts his body while in air, it causes his body to not land in a natural way. Thus, as the author of the video suggests, his ability to avoid contact led to his ultimate demise through knee problems.

    If I cared enough, I'd find it.
