NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1356

That 3-point play happened more than once but even ignoring that he has dominated many 4th quarters against the Clips and Lakers. You got to remember that the Clips and Grizz have had a few playoffs series battles outside of regular season games. IIRC two years in a row, one 7-game and the other 6-game?


And the Clippers bench was definitely WAY WAY better lats year. You cannot fathom how big of a difference Collison is to Farmar. Hell Collison won that playoff game against the OKC. Darren sparks the bench the same way Bledsoe does, Farmar just chucks up 3s and not much else. Farmar was so bad that he plays 10 minutes less than Collison because he can't defend and he can't score and he can't facilitate. Collison could, on defense alone is far and away better than Farmar, Doc was able to play CP3 and Collison so that CP3 doesn't have to guard the other teams PG. Farmar is so bad he had to be let go int he middle of the season. Last years bench tended to increase the lead, this years blows it. Hawes is the biggest addition this year and they expected similar numbers to his healthy self from the Sixers but that hasn't shown up. After that, all that is left is Crawford.

I mean really int he end you can't even compare Farmar to Collison, it's a landslide win for Collison all the way. Not even close.

Just google "Clippers Bench" and you'd probably see several articles on how bad they are this year and how most thought they were improving the bench and why most analyst got the Clips picked to be moving on from the West.


I would definitely consider Cousins and Westbrook Superstars, Milsap probably tittering the line but he is right there. I don't think my standard is lower, just different.

And finally just looked at CP3s stats and some are down. Points, Assist and Steals are all down. PER is also down from 25.9 last year to 24.6 this year.


I am not expert in stats but if you can check the difference between this years bench versus last years and I am almost certain you'll see a difference there.

And then there's all this talk about a max deal. Interesting dynamics.

Yes you got to be part of the "big 3" to be a max deal player despite the name meaning absolutely nothing other than just a name. baldy[1].gif

Anyways, Kings coach supposedly met with the front office last night and now George Karl is being looked at as the next coach to start as soon as Tuesday.

A "big 3" is usually interpreted as the best 3 players. If DJ is not one of them, then I wonder how people can think he's worthy of a max.

Um no. "Big 3" is a label (just a label) if the team has 3 elite or superstars in the team. If the "big 3" simply meant the 3 best players in every team then that means every team has a "big 3".

Hell why stop at "big 3", why not "big 5" and that would be the teams starting line-up? Why not the "big 6" if you have the 6th man of the year?


I'm not even going to entertain another back & forth with you on Jordans contract.



I swear I don't want to fall for the trap goddamnit!

Does this really need to be spelled out for you?  The NBA isn't some used car market where there's a Kelley Blue Book price on each player.  Supply and demand, bruh.  How many centers lead the league in blocks while also having the highest FG% and average double-figure scoring?

I feel like other people come into this thread expecting us to roast him and we'd be doing everyone an injustice if we just started ignoring him.

I was watching the Hawks Warriors game and did anyone notice how the damn hawks arena organist was going off? Motherfucker was jamming the whole 48min.

edit: ah ok so the Hawks organist name is Sir Foster and he's been jamming hard pre bandwagon (circa 2011). teacha.gif

I understand the obvious. I find it funny that a guy vying for a max deal wouldn't be considered an elite player/part of a 'big 3'. What humors seems important to some of you. And Kelly Blue Book prices are based on supply and demand, bruh.
