the reason why memphis has plummeted: curse of jeff green man. dude is the underpublicized josh smith. seriously tho, from reading their beat reporters and such, it seems like their starting lineup w/ jeff green has been outright bad. its green's fault, conley has been ridic inconsistent for like 3 months now, and gasol has regressed from his early-season aggressiveness. randolph stopped pulling off 20-10 games, so now they're here. i unfortunately don't see much hope for...
this playoff dance is enthralling. golden state is locked into #1, port in 4, dallas 7, okc 8 (probably). memphis is #2 (51-24), houston 0.5 gb (50-24), clippers 1.5 gb (49-25), spurs 3 gb (47-26). memphis should give anything not to face san antonio...clippers would probably prefer not to face memphis. spurs are sitting pretty, hard-charging, and everyone is terrified of them. who really knows about houston; i still have no idea how they're winning games.
oh fuck. craig sager's leukemia has returned. aml is exceedingly difficult to cure in the older population, and much much more so when it returns post-bone marrow transplant. 5-yr survival rates are as low as 5%. i wish the best for him and his family. truly awful news.
haha this is so wrong it's so funny to me. bruh you're up 9 points, who cares if they get a dunk. then you're only up 7 w/ 40 secs left w/ the ball.only way you can lose up 9 w/ 40 secs left is if you fuck a ton of shit up and your opponent has a lot of high-variance shit go his way. so the underdog needs to enact as many david strategies as possible. so if cleveland has the choice btwn a guaranteed 2 pts or a 3 pta by a 33% shooter they would be idiotic not to take the 3...
yes, when you are up 9 pts w/ 40 secs left in the game you should definitely give up a corner 3 instead of a 2 pt dunk.what didnt neo spell this the exact same way you did? am i missing something?? is this performance art???
biedrins? is he still in the league? two cool items: 1) ind mentioned it before, but zach lowe's podcast w/ jj redick is really really great. redick is thoughtful and super honest about everything, like how every ref hates his team, they complain all the time, MVP talk, etc. he also apparently read business insider nonstop on team flights. made me proud to go to school w/ him, although he was a raging db while he was there 2) jeremy lin! god he can't get out of his own...
i could be wrong but i'm pretty sure portland is guaranteed to get the 4-spot, but they don't actually get home court against #5. and to answer your question, i think the clips can only pass the blazers by leapfrogging them to #3. so houston would have to drop down
This is a good point. My whole thing was hat I didn't realize just how little a dent a mini max contract given this summer will make for a teams cap sheet in the future until I actually sat down and looked at the #s.Like, 3 mths ago I knew draymond was super valuable, but a $15m/yr contract seemed like a stretch to me. But when you look at it, it's really not a big deal at all; it can't hamstring your cap in the slightest.
That's true I don't think it's necessarily an advantage as much as it is a strategy I think most teams should follow. Not a secret to teams by any means. But imo it's a mistake for most teams to hold onto the cap room for the fools gold promise of signing 2 superstars in the next summer. Try to sign who you want, and don't worry about going 20% over. Idfnl, I'd love to hear what's fuzzy about my math. Unless this is one of your posts where you say someone is wrong and...
i would love to hear any legit counter-arguments to just not worrying about overpaying your targets by $3-5M/yr or so, if there are any. in other news, kd is getting surgery on that foot AGAIN. it's bone graft surgery, apparently. as trey kerby pointed out, now the thunder have claimed that two players (russ and kd) were healing/healed perfectly before they had season-ending surgery. it's gotten to the point where i'm really scared about the rest of durant's career. it...
