  1. Glass (2019)

    So conflicted!! I've been wanting to see this for so long, but the reviews are absolutely dreadful. Granted, it seems like a lot of them were expecting a more "pure" super hero film than they received, so that leaves me cautiously optimistic, but I just don't know...

    Rockets had that game in hand last night until Russell got benched. Granted, I think he largely got benched b/c he got frustrated and drew a technical. So, was that more of a smart coaching move to bench the frustrated youngster and sub in Dinwiddie, or does that crazy comeback speak more to the fact that Russell is just not all that good and will never be a true star in this league?

    Sooo, Kenny Atkinson that good a coach or D Russ that horrible of a player?

    Boy if you didn't call this one lmao

    Those people are idiots, and we don't take the opinions of idiots seriously
  6. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I feel this way about so many posters on here lol. It's like their brains get turned to incoherent mush when it comes to their favorite football teams.

    Yeah, I mean it's not like anyone is saying he isn't a top 5 player. It's perfectly okay to hate a top 5 player for their antics or the way that they play the game, e.g. see LeBron circa 2010-2014.
  8. Trade rumor/suggestion thread 2018/19

    Can someone who watches the Mavs explain to me why the hell they are trying to trade DSJ? I get that statistically him and Luka have a negative net rating when on the court together and Rick Carlisle has had some issues with him, but from the old eyeball test, him and Luka have looked great together. And the team as a whole looked fantastic, at least prior to the corpse of Dirk returning to the lineup. Not sure I see the value in making this trade, as it appears unlikely they get fair value in return.
  9. Is NE/KC a rivalry now?

    Yes, this is not a rivalry.
  10. Spiderman: Far from home

    Yup, my thoughts exactly. Could be Hydroman, a very underrated villain, imo. Or since we are dealing with Mysterio here, could very well just be an illusion.

    I just don't agree with your assessment of the players. I get you have a soft spot for Gallo, but honestly what were these guys doing before they came to LA? They're not as good as you are painting them out to be. They are all basically having career years, in large part, due to playing under Doc. Could they be considered underrated? Sure, but being underrated and having a great year due to coaching aren't mutually exclusive. As for that last statement:
  12. NBA GDT | 18'-19 |

    Isn't that kind of the point of CoTY though? To get a group of players perceived to be under performers/lesser talents and get them playing like one of the better teams in the NBA? And omitting Gobert was a total oversight. That aside, in terms of talent and career production, personally I'm still not taking Harris/Gallo over any of those guys. But we can agree to disagree here. At the end of the day, it'll be fun to see if the Nuggets can remain atop the conference or if the Clippers can remain in the top 5. Given the buzz saw nature of the West, it wouldn't surprise me to see he Nuggets drop to like the 7th seed and/or the Clippers to drop completely out of the playoffs by seasons end. So this entire discussion could be for naught.
  13. NBA GDT | 18'-19 |

    Yeah I think the term super star is subjective and can be argued with some of those guys, but who of that group would you actually pass up in favor of Gallo/Harris? And I agree, it can't entirely be coaching; the roster has to be at least somewhat capable for them to actually perform on the court. But my overarching point isn't that they are not talented, rather they are individually less talented than a lot of other teams in the West, but they are right up there are a collective, and that is what you can usually attribute to coaching.
  14. NBA GDT | 18'-19 |

    No doubt what they've managed to do with all the injuries has been impressive, but again it's easier to do/manage when you have a true super star on the roster, e.g. Jokic's 40-10-8 performance vs Portland last night. Now, that's not to under-credit the coaching performance, but to help elucidate the point that the Clippers work as a sum of the whole, which is usually attributed to coaching vs a team like the Nuggets which are lead by a clear cut super star. And given the nature of the league and how super stars essentially drive playoff success, it wasn't so much that I thought the Clippers would be a 30 win team, it was more so I did not think there was any way they could compete with teams featuring the likes of: Curry/Durant/Klay/Cousins Westbrook/George Harden/Paul Jokic Mitchell Davis/Holiday Lillard/McCollum DeRozan/Aldridge LeBron
  15. Kemba Walker

    Exactly. It's not like Kemba is eyeing his way out of CHA. He actually wants to be there long-term. This isn't a situation like TOR where you would be upgrading your roster by giving up your best player, any move they make would ultimately result in a downgrade. You're simply not going to get super stars to come to CHA, so when you have one who actually wants to remain there, you lock him up long term. If anything, they should rebuild, find a way to ship out all of those bad contracts. Maybe that doesn't necessarily correlate to tanking, but they need to do something to improve the overall roster around their sole super star. I like some of the young pieces like Bridges, Monk and Willy, but they are still a ways away from competing with any of the elite teams in the East.
