westbrook is a goddamn marvel villain.

mvp debate is pretty interesting. honestly lebron is realllly moving up. he's been back to his miami self (w/ more assists, worse shooting) ever since his 2 week break, and his team looks dominant.

the east is pretty clearly only either gonna be won by the hawks or cavs.

OH I WONDER WHY

still waiting for you to make sense of the fact that you would willingly lose steph curry

Never said Lin had a max. Some may find it dumb you make that assertion, unless you can point to me specifically saying that. Otherwise, you look "so dumb it's so amusing". More than likely, you'll just change the subject as you've done a few times before when you're caught out, like the S Curry comment or the one you just made.

I really don't know how to get to the stats you mention. Regardless, I can probably find 8 or 10 guys that fit the D Howard profile. You can too. It's not important, though. Any donkey that would assert a guy deserves a max because of a few good starts is the one that shouldn't be taken seriously.

More than happy to raise my hand and say I was wrong in 2017 when Gobert is crushing Anthony Davis head to head, but until that happens, my wallet stays tight in my pocket, asshole.

It's a pretty open field for MVP right now, in my opinion.

Curry
Lebron
Harden (would hate if he won)
Westbrook

MIP is between Butler and Klay
post #20869 of 27236
Honestly I thought curry should take it and harden is close and more valuable to his team but with the way westbrook and lebron is playing I just don't know anymore


I already got a kind reminder but please next time I reply to idfnl tell me that I'm being a fucking retard

You're a fucking retard (because you argue like a woman).

Westbrook is the real MVP.

honestly chris paul also deserves to be in the conversation. which really means it's unfortunate that he's gonna get 5th. but he's carrying his team and putting up craaaazy numbers.

i'm inclined to give it to harden > curry because curry has a lot of help and a way better coach. harden is doing a ton and winning games during crunch time by himself. i do love curry tho

oh my bad, i was wrong. you didn't say lin had a max, you just straw manned the fuck out of me and indesertum instead. i am perfectly happy to go into the myriad reasons why it would have been absurd to give lin the max after linsanity (and yet if gobert were magically an FA after this season somebody would), but something tells me you aren't ever trying to honestly debate in this thread. but just let me know if you want to know them.

i honestly don't remember what you said about steph curry. what was it?

listen, i'm more than happy to admit when i'm wrong, or when i don't know as much about something. i was wrong about the klay trade, i didn't know if wiggins was going to be this good, i doubted the blazers, etc. i've learned a lot in this thread, about the triangle, and shooting form, and a bunch of other things. i might be wrong, but i literally can't recall you ever admitting you were wrong about a single thing. which is funny cuz you're wrong about a ton.

re: stats, google a player's name. go to their basketball reference page. scroll down to the "advanced" box. look for applicable numbers. also, go to "play index" on the top left and "season finder." play around for a bit. you're not going to find many (if any) bad bigs that have had comparable 2nd seasons to gobert. you're welcome to try.

Straw manned? You don't have the chops to make quality arguments to defend yourself.

Thanks for admitting you were wrong, but it was your doppelganger that made the comment about Lin and a max. You work in tandem, but let him fight his own battles.

You were the one that suggested a max if Gobert was eligible, own it. I don't pretend, if I am wrong, then so be it. Point out my denial and I'll happily address it (hopefully before LawrenceMD posts a sand trap gif).

You've falling into the world of internet forum lord of the flies and lack the chops to wade thru it. I credit you more than the wankers that post gifs and make lame jokes. Wait. You tried the lame joke route. Ok, then I credit you for trying to make sense of yourself. Eventually you'll realize there is a clear correlation between your personal money management skills and your willingness to throw money at tall gangly men. It's easily denied, so I'd go there if I were you.

lol8[1].giflol8[1].gif the enmity is palpable and you're trying so hard, and yet your words make less sense than ever. i'm picturing you sitting there coming up w/ your stupid arguments, muttering "it's so obvious!" to yourself and trying to create these terrible put-downs ("at least you didn't do something lame...OH WAIT YOU ARE LAME" LOL) and wondering why literally everyone w/ some sense in this thread vehemently disagrees w/ you

Again, no substantive means to defend yourself even though I specifically addressed your deficiencies, then sadly followed by begging for thumb-uppers to help.

Oh my god this Blazers clippers game. Chris Paul shoots for a game tying layup, literally goes almost below the rim on the inside but bounces out, buzzer goes off, deandre gets rebound and stops cuz he thinks game is over but it was the shot clock buzzer not that game buzzer. He still had 0.7 seconds to get ball in and his hand and the ball is right next to rim
post #20878 of 27236
mm girl lemme specifically address yo deficiencies...
post #20879 of 27236
