  1. 2019 Western Conference First Round Thread

    Ay bro we posted at the same time. I think the Nuggets win tonight, I feel like game 4 was a major moment for this team. Their resiliency all season has been so impressive.

    I just think he deserves a little more credit for his track record. He's been in the West his whole career and getting to the WCF G7 is impressive. But the failures are there so I feel you. I'm not passionate about it, I just think it's a little more nuanced than "James Harden sucks in the playoffs." He definitely needs to have a great postseason at some point to be viewed as an all time great. Super stoked for the Nugs/Spurs game tonight. Big one, fellas.

    Harden is a basketball genius. There is no doubt about it. But yeah, often the viewing experience can be brutal and it's absolutely infuriating for your team to play against him. So I understand why Houston fans are perpetually triggered with how we all treat Harden since he is incredible...but it kind of is what it is. Morey and Harden kinda sold their basketball souls to create this team/play style that has an okay shot at beating the most talented team of all time. I think the Harden playoff narrative is a bit overblown due to a couple bad moments....but that's just how these things go. He needs to have one great playoff performance and all will be forgiven.

    His defense has been very good all series. He obviously sucks in the spread PnR but people don't realize that he is a talented 1v1 defender and is actually pretty good on that end

    I was turnt yesterday. Jokic really attacked the basket yesterday and he needs to keep doing that, let SA off the hook too much in the first three games.

    Your thoughts @showtime

    Jokic showed up.
  8. 2019 Western Conference First Round Thread

    Nope. They have a superstar. Some folks can't widen their understanding of what a superstar can be and it is what it is. Watch the series and you see it is the supporting cast and coaching that is making the difference right now.

    Frauds in what way? Who has called the Nuggets a real contender?
  10. 2019 Western Conference First Round Thread

    Yeah I feel you. I really think the coaching staff + the players need to do a better job of getting creative and getting Jokic the rock. He's been pretty good (I'd say around a B+ performance throughout the series) but he hasn't been able to have the impact on the offensive end that he needs to. A lot of that is Popovich's gameplan, but yeah it just is what it is as a big sometimes. I'm learning some things about the roster and how they should construct it moving forward - I'll get my takes off eventually. It absolutely sucks that Will Barton is essentially unplayable rn. Injury killed his season.

    My team could use Kyrie Irving right now I fear Jamal has been exposed. Very interested to see how he responds Saturday. Nuggets are still in a decent position to win the series if they win Saturday. On one hand...I feel like the Spurs have outplayed the Nugs for 3 games and it would be a sweep if not for a flukey Jamal explosion. On the other hand, the Nuggets are a wide open missed mid range jumper away from being up 2-1 and have been in every game despite two starters essentially no-showing and Pop absolutely killing it coaching wise. This series has me all over the place.
  12. 2019 Western Conference First Round Thread

    I'm more concerned with him trying to stay in front of Derrick White.
  13. 2019 Western Conference First Round Thread

    Guard defense was an issue last night - Jamal Murray is getting killed on both ends - but the Nuggets clamped in the first two games. The offense has been more of the consistent issue tbh.

    because you are my internet friend and I know you

    I feel a big Jokic game coming. He's averaging a triple double and playing great defense so far....just needs to get those buckets to drop. Don't worry about my guy
