2 answers.

1, close to if not max. 2, I don't like him and don't think he plays well with others. If I was an owner sitting in the Mark Cuban seat, I just wouldn't want him in my uniform (if I had options). Same sorta feeling I get for Chris Paul. I'd prefer Lillard over both, who I'd certainly max.

I cannot believe how bad is is balding. At least it seems he is playing without the headband nowadays, which I always thought was a mental crutch. Now that he DGAF perhaps he can be more focus on the game and elevating his team. Coincidence with how CLE is performing now? har har

You have to change up your system based on personnel. Can't just go into a team and tell them it should be a way you prefer it.


I thought the gobert block was borderline goaltending but Jesus Christ. Dude is getting a max for sure and he'll still be undervalued. Draymond should get max but maybe they can convince him for less. They just need to wait out David Lee's contract. I hope they don't trade him because he's done so much for the Warriors. They're making so much money they can afford to pay luxury tax. Apparently wait list for warriors tickets is 7000 long

Kyrie's and Klay's contract is going to look like a bargain in two years and curry is going to get paaaaid in 2017

What is up with Thibs rehabilitating 5' 10"ish point guards? DJ Augstin, Nate Robinson, and now Aaron Brooks.

Loved that reddit thread. I loved the comments about refs talking trash back to the players

This year's Hawks are my favorite team to watch since 2012 Knicks

iono man, if i were a 2nd round pick i'd move to utah if it meant i got more $$.

they should trade david lee...he's avging 18 mpg! 18! dude was dnp-cd'd in like 3 of the warriors last 5 games. i guess don't trade him if it's gonna hurt your team, but it would be a shame if they kept him and got rid of iggy or someone for $ issues.

aaron brooks gets rehabilitated like literally every 2 years lol.

kyle lowry today had 19 pts, 8 rebs, 8 ast, 7 stl, 5 3s.

yeah he's had so many DNPs, but I'm worried breaking the team would ruin chemistry like what happened to pacers and granger. correlation or causation? i think the sensible thing to do is trade him, but i would feel so bad for david lee but yeah if it comes down to trading david lee or not being able to sign somebody else i would trade david lee

is anyone here a college bball fan? i watched the duke-notre dame game last night and the product was honestly just so bad. there are a ton of obvious systemic problems w/ the college game, many of which are coming to the forefront this season, but it's just astounding how inadequate play is a decent chunk of the time. i don't know if it's just cuz duke is great on offense and terrible at defense year after year, but the defense i usually see is atrocious.

i know ppl don't generally watch college ball for the level of play, but that's always been a limiting factor i can't get over.

Can't get into NCAA ball. Would almost rather watch the D League.

I am the opposite. Have never seen a D leave game in my life. The tournaments are cool leading up to March madness.

I can't stand college ball, but my alma mater is playing at a really high level this season, so I have to watch.  The shot clock is way too long and possessions are just so drawn out.  Also the spacing is just so cramped in college ball compared to the NBA.  I don't know whether that's a function of a worse talent pool where there aren't a whole lot of players who can consistently knock down 3's or if it's just the closer 3-pt line.

i only watch ncaa when my alma mater is in it so that generally means i never watch ncaa


curry's field goal percentage




it's the same whether he's guarded or not
post #21059 of 27206
I watch college BB, but only to be happy when Duke loses
post #21060 of 27206

I really haven't either, it was jest.

People get all rah rah about the tournament, I just see a bunch of frenetic basketball pretending to be intensity mixed with crowd noise. There might be 1 NBA caliber player every 3 games or something? Not for me. Since all the best guys are gone in a year, it lacks the quality you had when G-town face N Carolina in the 80s, Phi Slamma Jamma or UNLVs run. It's just jerseys now.
