    Zion outplaying AD, that's the good stuff

    Jrue still Dame's daddy

    What's funnier is that it was supposed to be a 3 player draft if you listened to the pundits. Not that RJ is completely written off yet but... I was never really a fan. Zion you'd have to be blind to not get the hype and I was a big Ja fan. Pels and Grizzlies really made out like bandits in that lottery, the 2 smallest markets in the NBA got the 2 newest stars.

    I will. Hope they can actually win and keep a guy around this time. Already off to a waaaaaaay better start to the rebuild than the AD era.

    The Pels own the Blazers as a franchise lately. Also... Zion is a god I get to watch this guy play for us for years to come...

    Lonzo has been so good lately man No Zion, no BI, tough road game in Indiana He and Jrue won us this game in crunch time, JJ was great throughout

    Pretty sure I had Toronto beating GSW if KD didn't return (which he basically didn't). Think I had GSW in 6 if he had returned by game 4, which he also didn't. I definitely didn't have them beating the Bucks though, no argument there. It's not about disrespecting the Raptors, I think you're by far the 2nd best team in the East. It's just how good I think the Bucks are. Last year the series was close and could've been swung by the slimmest of margins, and the Bucks got even better. Raps have about the same record, but I think it's fair to say no Kawhi will hurt more in the playoffs than in the regular season. My Finals prediction right now would be Bucks over Clippers in 7. If it's the Lakers I'd have Bucks in 6. Vs the Raps I have Bucks in 6. I think you'd be putting up as good a fight as anyone not named the Clippers in terms of how many games you'd push the Bucks.

    Bucks are going to steamroll the first 2 rounds and the Raps will take them to 6 at most Finals will be close no matter which of the big boys come out of the West, but I think Milwaukee takes it all regardless

    Damian Lillard is 2015-16 Steph Curry reincarnated

    I won't be shocked if the Lakers win it all (hard to be SHOCKED by a team with LeBron/AD winning) but I'll definitely be a little surprised. Don't think they have the 3 point shooting to stay with the Bucks, which is as far as I can see them making it. Think they'll lose to the Clippers beforehand though.

    Lonzo and Zion's connection is special already

    Clippers vs Bucks in the Finals it is
  13. 2019/2020 trade rumors or suggestion thread.

    This draft class stinks, no top 5 pick is going to be the difference between them being title favorites or not, unless they swing it and the Twolves pick for a big trade. Wiggins sucks. He'll probably be salary filler in a big trade at some point.
  14. 2019/2020 trade rumors or suggestion thread.

    ... why? A rookie in this class isn't going to propel them up much. Maybe if they use that pick + Minnesota's to acquire someone who can be a game changer. Otherwise I think their Steph/Klay/Draymond team is only enough to be one of the several teams in the mix.
  15. NBA GDT | '19-'20 | RIP KOBE "BLACK MAMBA" BRYANT

    Me too. The NBA climate in recent memory has just made me always root for the small and/or undesirable market when possible. Seeing them win gives me hope for the Pels. Zion/BI doesn't hurt either. It was cool to see Toronto win last year (they're a big market but no free agent ever wanted to go there, they were entirely built through trades or home grown talent) and if Milwaukee wins this year that's back to back champs from """undesirable""" markets. I love it. I would also be okay with Denver but I think they're one more year of MPJ development and/or a big trade acquisition away. Bucks are the only real hope vs the LA teams without the Sixers or Rockets getting their ish together, and even then I'd way rather the Bucks.
  16. NBA GDT | '19-'20 | RIP KOBE "BLACK MAMBA" BRYANT

    Agreed, and sure looks like it so far. Giannis and Lopez are hard to score on, who woulda thunk it.
  17. Coaching is important, but you still gotta have the talent. Reid didn't make Smith look anywhere near as good as Mahomes, y'know? So I think he would be great anywhere, but if he was under a bad coaching staff he probably wouldn't be MVP level. Similarly, Watson under his current trash coaching staff looks great cause he still has the natural talent, but if he was coached by Big Red I think he would be in the running for MVP himself.

    Nah He's been playing great for a solid 20 game or so stretch now, this Lonzo is a good player. Shooting 39% from 3 in that time frame, 36% for the season, on high volume. Averaging 14/8/9 in that timeframe. Great defense. Still got room to grow but he hasn't even been close to trash after the first month and a halfish
  19. Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

    Chiefs offense in first 54 minutes: 10 points Chiefs offense in final 6 minutes: 21 points These Chiefs may be the most explosive team I've ever seen. They're not the GOAT offense or anything. They don't always figure you out right away. But whether it takes a quarter, half, or 54 minutes... when they figure it out they score FAST.
  20. Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

    I never doubted you Chiefs even after you turned it over down 20-10, no need to look at my post history, just believe me I did pick them to win before the game though
  21. Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

    This game is over Feel so bad for Andy Reid, the man deserves a ring. Maybe another year. He's called a great game tonight (other than the 1st half TO usage, typical Reid lol) but his team and Mahomes are letting him down.
  22. Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

    Andy Reid is here to win his ring finally
  23. Super Bowl LIV - San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

    That spin move on 4th down was so cute Chiefs just won the 1Q.... gg game over sorry Niners
  24. NBA GDT | '19-'20 | RIP KOBE "BLACK MAMBA" BRYANT

    Zion/Zo/BI are gonna be an insane trio for years
  25. NBA GDT | '19-'20 | RIP KOBE "BLACK MAMBA" BRYANT

    Nuggets might have the best roster in the league top to bottom. Main competition is Milwaukee but I think the bottom of their roster is worse, while their top with Giannis/Middleton/Bledsoe is better. The fact that the Nuggets are staying as afloat as they are without Murray and Millsap (and Harris has been on and off with the games missed recently) is truly impressive. While I'm showing the Nugs some love I think if MPJ stays healthy and lives up to the potential they will win a title with this core. Have the superstar in Jokic. Have the complementary second star in Murray and potentially MPJ. Have insane depth and great role players.
