  1. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Even on his own and there has been enough of a sample, he hasn’t gotten close. Whether you think Harden isn’t the scorer Kobe is, the gap isn’t that wide and even with Harden shooting way more 3s because let’s be real ( you aren’t getting close to 90 unless you don’t take a ton of 3s). Don’t give a crap about the mamba mentality

    I’m telling you I agree with Paul Pierece we won’t see somebody score 100 points in our lifetime
  3. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Because nobody in this era has been able to sniff it. KD a better scorer than Kobe hasn’t even sniffed it. Harden hasnt even got 70 Yet let alone 90 with his ridiculous volume.
  4. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Yes. Because after getting 81 once. He never got close to that ever again. Before that he never got close. A whole of circumstances have to occur for that to happen.
  5. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    I mean the comment we are talking about is an example. It’s a total disrespect to the talent in today’s game to say Kobe could score 100. Scottie is the only one on that Jump panel is the only one who doesn’t hate on today’s game I agree he would have so many more explosions but he’s not sniffing 100 or even 90 for that matter
  6. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Nah Tracy hates on today’s game so much. Kobe would have more 60-70 point games but 100 is not gonna happen ever. 80 is a stretch. nobody is ever scoring 100 again or getting close to it.

    Tracy is a typical get off my lawn guy. Ignore him.
  8. 2019 NFL Draft - Quarterbacks

    I’ve watched more of Haskins, His accuracy under pressure is very spotty. He had a lot of clean pockets and he’s great at that but when he gets pressured he tends to miss a bit too frequently for my liking.

    I know a few weeks ago somebody said Siakam doesn’t have huge upside. He’s a playoff series away from being a household name
  10. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    That defense by Okogie on Harden for that stretch was sooo good. The 3 pointer block was freakin’ good
  11. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Bro I’ve long already been there already. I’m at 100% it is him
  12. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    What does the first part even mean? Like seriously? And you would take PG over any of GS players??? goodness me.
  13. The Browns have signed Kareem Hunt

    You guys care way too much about public relations man. He has a right and should be allowed the freedom to sign with whoever wants him.
  14. Hot Take Thread

    Haskins is more of a runner than thrower. how about that?!
  15. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    You know because...they just can’t
  16. Has Julian Edelman punched his ticket?

    Never. No way, not ever.
  17. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Bro, every day he has to hear that he’s a snake. You were up 3–1 and lost then joined the team that beat you. Cupcake. You’re rings don’t count. The Warriors are better without you. They don’t need you. You’ve ruined the league all that stuff. It’s the middle of the year and he’s in the process of trying to win a championship, common sense would suggest that he’s not gonna answer questions about it. Like they know what his answer is gonna be. I bet now they know not to ask him that question. That’s not even true, at least not anymore. LeBron occupies a space now and has so for since at least his second championship where if he wins it’s all him but if it’s not it cos of his teammates. Early on his career and most notably his first two or 3 years in Miami yeah, the pressure was there. No question. KD did get criticism for the Rockets series. He absolutely did. It wasn’t LeBron levels yeah but I’m not even referring to that. I’m referring to the scrutiny he gets for his move daily.

    The grow up part hes is irony but that make his point any less valid. So it’s ok for the media to right stories that you think people want to read regardless of its credibility. Media members have just as ego as athletes do honestly. They badly want to be the one who has the insight and the breaker of news. I’d be annoyed, regardless of my salary, if stuff that I did not say or did not come from my circle was reported to the masses and then I have to answer for it and my teammates too.
  19. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    A pass for what exactly. I’m not saying KD doesn’t have his issues cos he does. Like you said he is sensitive as heck, no question. Do you think doing what Kyrie did would deter these questions? Come on bruh. Look at the entire year he hasn’t caved into their questions so why heck do you need to keep bringing it up as if this one time KD will break and answer the questions? Is hiding from the media the best way to deal with it? No. But at the same time I understand not wanting to ask a question which he doesn’t want to address right now. KD wants to talk about basketball that’s it. He does on podcasts and so forth and you can hear the joy and relief he gets from talking basketball but often that isn’t the focus. KD hasn’t handled it the best but it don’t mean I don’t agree with his overall message. As for he scrutiny yes he hasn’t duration of scrutiny that LeBron has had but these past 3 years have been brutal and I don’t think there has ever been such universal criticism ever for a player of his ilk. Bron had it 1 year in 2011. This has been 3 straight years of him being a villain to many people
  20. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    No it has little do with his media obligation and more with the fact of these stories out there that come across as if they’re attributed to him and are his words. And come on that last question was like “fineee, we’ll ask you about what you wanna talk about”. hes criticising the stories not the fact he has to ask questions after each game. I applaud him because the media deserve it and only there for their own self interests. KD actually has no issue talking about basketball with media because he genuinely loves the game but this other stuff around it that ticks him off
  21. NBA GDT | 18'-19 | No More Garbage Thread Titles

    Durant going off on the media was great.
  22. Anthony Davis Demands Trade

    I think it’s a bit hasty to say Kuzma and Lonzo we’re turning a corner just before they got hurt. They’re inconsistent players that’s what they are. Any small stretch of good play I wouldn’t deem as turning the corner particularly Lonzo. He’s had good stretches before and then he resorts back to being passive or what have you
  23. Was Super Bowl LIII "boring"?

    It was boring, but I was still engaged in the game maybe because of the stakes. If the Jags and Titans played the exact same game it’d be almost a consensus that it was boring. Now I don’t think it was any more or less boring than the Panthers/Broncos SB
  24. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    Patriots certainly had a lot of 3 and outs. And only ever made it to the red zone once throughout the game. Rams never were the defense that’d shut you down. Maybe that was the plan all along.
  25. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    Then I mean it’s not far off to say Wade Phillips schooled Brady and McDaniels right?
