  1. 2017-2018 NBA GDT: Off the court discussions

    This is assuming Kawhi isn't there next year?
  2. The Travel Help Thread

    Oh, wow. Thank you to you and your gf for the detailed information. Wife and I are still weighing our options, but this should definitely help!
  3. 2017-2018 NBA GDT: Off the court discussions

    I tend to agree with your overall statement that people have a hard time gauging on ball defense, but one that's not necessarily all that goes into all NBA voting, and two Covington wasn't a terrible defender in the playoffs so much as he was a net negative because of his offense. Ben Simmons being absolutely atrocious against Boston and getting lost on switches forced Covington to have to do way too much defensively. I don't think that's a fair barometer for his actual defensive prowess, when he showed for an 82 game season that he is a great defender when his teammates aren't letting him down and bailing out the opposing team.

    Nah, people may be discrediting him for his porous performances in the playoffs, but he was a great defender all regular season. #2 in DWS for players who played at least 50 games, behind only Rudy Gobert. #6 in defensive rating for players who played at least 50 games. And was constantly tasked with guarding the opposing teams best wing on a nightly basis. Dude absolutely deserved first team.
  5. WCF: Warriors vs Rockets Thread- The Real NBA Finals

    Well, it was nice knowing @Darkness while it lasted. Impressive win by the Rockets, @Texansfan713. Would love to see this go the full 7 games, but I think that greatly depends on the health of Iggy. Warriors looked discombobulated on defense without him.

    I'd rather watch Skura get bulldozed into Flacco 100x this season than sign a bum like Incognito off the street.
  7. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I personally hate the concept of participation trophies, but I think that's another matter entirely in comparison to a kid's graduation/end of year celebration. Positive reinforcement is one thing, but dumbing down the playing field to negate achievement and competition in a competitive sport is just asinine.
  8. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Eh, they can call it whatever they want, but it's adults who convey any type of meaning to the event. Kids just want to be kids and show off what they've learned in front of their family; they have no real concept of what a graduation is or what it entails. Only person getting hurt by you (or anyone for that matter) not going to something like this because they deem it trivial/beneath them is the kid.

    Way to ruin a 5 year old girls dreams, bruh. Ice cold.
  10. ECF: Boston vs Cleveland, the actual NBA finals

    LOL! Kyle Korver is in Jaylen's head!!
  11. ECF: Boston vs Cleveland, the actual NBA finals

    I don't think I fully understood the saying "he shoots with no remorse" until I watched JR Smith play. Make or miss, JR gonna chuck. Quite a sight to behold. Also, Cavs are closing out on everything. I know defense is like 75% effort, but the way they're playing defense tonight compared to how they played for 90% of the season is ridiculous.
  12. Deadpool 2

    Good, but not as good as the first. However I think that was to be expected since it was always going to be extremely hard to capture the novelty and unexpectedness of the first. Some of the jokes did fall a little flat, at a seemingly higher rate than the first, but overall it was still a fairly enjoyable film in terms of comedic value. I'm always wary of the introduction of time travel into a film as it can seemingly open up endless possibilities and give way to lazy writing, but I think they did a fairly good job with it here. However, I hope the very end of the film (post credits) was all done in jest and not meant to serve as a manipulation of any real timelines in the context of the Deadpool universe.
  13. WCF: Warriors vs Rockets Thread- The Real NBA Finals

    Lol, yeah I remember I had the exact same thought when he went for that. If I'm the Warriors though, I'm still not that worried. It was a disappointing game for sure, but I don't think a lot of what the Rockets did is sustainable for a full series, especially against a team as talented as the Dubs.
  14. WCF: Warriors vs Rockets Thread- The Real NBA Finals

    To be fair, most of those weren't exactly easy layups that he missed. Granted, by his own lofty standards they probably should be, but for anyone else those were still tough shots at the rim.
