  1. Khalil Mack Holdout (To be fined $814,000 tonight)

    I don't think we should just give him the biggest contract... Reggie is smart he's letting this play out. If we give Mack the biggest contract ever then we won't have money to fill out the rest of our defense later on. I'm not even really worried about this TBH. Him and Carr have been hanging out it's not like he's isolating himself from the team.

    Haven't heard from you in a while since I destroyed ya on Madden a couple months ago

    Ty Lue has to be the worst coach in the NBA lol. How do you not command your team to double KD? What a fun game! Go dubsssssss

    No. It doesn't make sense to abandon what was working against the Warriors. This wasn't the regular season anymore. This isn't playing against the Denver Nuggets. You adjust your gameplan based on who you are playing. Rockets were dominating in the paint and getting tons of offensive rebounds all series long. Should've continued what got them the lead in the first half. Attack the basket then shoot threes when the defense sinks down. Adjust your strategy based on what's currently working. Eric Gordon was 7-10 in the paint and had success being aggressive. Then in the 3rd and 4th he starts taking contested threes instead of doing what was working. It became contagious starting with Harden's bad shots and led to their downfall. At what point do you miss so many threes that you acknowledge that it might be a good idea to not jack them up anymore?
  5. WCF: Warriors vs Rockets Thread- The Real NBA Finals

    It's playoff basketball. You don't get all the whistles you do in the regular season. It is well established that the more physical teams that play in the paint have an advantage in the playoffs. The Warriors are just such a good shooting team that they can overcome any physical/strength disadvantage with their 3 pointers and jump shots. The Rockets have plenty of players capable of hitting open mid-range. They're a very talented team. They chose to stay behind the 3 point line. Harden's game is predicated on 3 pointers and layups. There is no in between. They settled for the threes following their best players lead, and it ended up costing them an NBA finals trip.

    I can agree with most of what you said. However, i'm doubting Harden's ability to win a championship or even get to the finals, because his production seems more dependent on the refs calling fouls than any other superstar in the league. He's a great player and will be a hall of famer no doubt, but I think his style of play ends up hurting his team more in "playoff style" basketball, where the refs tend to swallow their whistle more often than not.

    That's the thing about KD sometimes. He settles for way too many 3's... Warriors should post him up more. As long as he doesn't go cold like in games 5 and 6.

    If your talking about the "swing" rule, that was called correctly, and as biased as the announcers sounded saying that that's a shot, they're wrong. You can't just swing your arms through a defenders arms when they're already there and pretend you wanted to shoot that all along. Durant made that move famous quite a few years ago. It doesn't work anymore. Also, I think most of Harden's three point attempts that he missed he was hoping to draw a foul call. He falls down or flails nearly everytime his three point shot is contested. He is so dependent on the refs blowing the whistle that he ends up forcing bad shots that don't called a foul in the post season. How do Rocket fans feel about this? I mean seriously... how many times did you see Harden this series throw up a ridiculous three point attempt and not even hit rim? Clearly, he was waiting for a whistle... Post season basketball is more physical, which is why Lebron will always have an upper hand (and why the Cavs won't get swept). Harden needs to learn to have better shot selection in the post season and not count on the refs to bail him out if he ever wants to lead his team to the finals.

    Man... can't believe the Warriors only scored 12 in the 4th... that's absurd.
  10. WCF: Warriors vs Rockets Thread- The Real NBA Finals

    Never been D'antoni's stong suit lol. I don't think the Rockets have an answer for the Warriors. Their only chance is to just not guard Iguodala at all and double team Curry and Durant...especially Durant in the post. The Rockets isolation ball is not a recipe for success against the Warriors. They have a good plan to attack Curry, but the Warriors other defenders are helping him out.

    Let's be honest here...Kyrie Irving will never win MVP.
  12. Steelers trade Bryant to Raiders

    Actually Amari Cooper will be playing more in the slot, not Jordy.
  13. Raiders trade for Martavius Bryant

    Carr will have plenty of weapons now. Hopefully our OL is solid with Miller.
  14. Raiders release P Marquette King; Signs with the Donks

    I don't understand how this sends a "message" to anyone. King was an amazing talent and fun to watch. Both pros... he had a few penalties where he let his emotions get the better of him but so what? It's not like it's something you can't discipline a little. Really hate this move but hopefully we can draft a good punter.
  15. Would you give Johnny Manziel another shot?

    I could see him as a backup QB somewhere... but even then how much of a distraction would he be to the team? He would have to change his attitude a lot and put himself in a situation with limited distractions off the field. Sounds like a mountain too high to climb for him.
