NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1410

On topic, but mostly "meh"

And just for fun: http://blog.shaq.com/charles-barkley-v-s-shaq-lift-off-with-mark-wahlberg-and-the-rock
Shaq v. Barkley in a lift-off. Guess who wins.
Just for fun, the NBA should do a strongest man competition at the all-star game. The only one I remember seeing had Charles Oakley and Kevin Willis in the finals. Willis one. Not a shock but I wouldn't have picked him in advance.

No more max contract for him

good, shut down durant. that foot problem is likely to linger if not allowed to fully rest and heal. hell, all the rest and healing doesnt guarentee anything either. wish him the best, i think if the thunder make the playoffs (on the back of westy), westy might have a real shot at mvp even with all the missed games earlier in the year

altough harden is making a damn good case

horrible horrible news. hope to god it doesn't affect durant past this year.

i honestly think the warriors have at least like a 75% chance of winning the title. as long as everyone's healthy, i don't see them losing against anyone. the crazy thing is that they're so versatile too. i don't even know if they have a bad matchup against anyone. the closest anyone comes is san antonio (ugh), just cuz of their wing defenders. but golden state should be able to guard the spurs very well too.

^ i think spurs vs warriors in the c.finals is very plausible. watching the dubs play a game 7 in oracle (against any team) would be elecccctric

i know the hawks team is supposed to be the spurs of the east. but how are the fans? are they as shitty as spurs fans? whenever i watch a spurs game, no matter the score or the situation, the energy in the arena is negligible.

The public is stupid, so using that as a justification for it being a great name is moot. This is not about looking back saying things were better back then, it's about the organic nature of nicknames, and how they needed time to mature in the past, which has changed now, and I feel for the worse. If the names were actually good, then no argument, but they're simply not.

Injuries this season have been ridiculous. Is westbrook the only elite guy that's had a complete season?

Westbrook missed a lot of time in the beginning of the season...

Good point, I forgot. Curry and Harden, I can't think of anyone else. C Paul maybe? It's be an awful year for injuries starting with Paul George.

imo fans are up and down. atlanta has had a horrendous sports fan rep for decades now. they've been a lot better this year, and management has also started catering towards a diff crowd (intentionally going after more african americans and millenials). i haven't been to any games this year against crap teams, but i've gone to a few good ones, and the fans have by and large been good-very good. good attendance, surprisingly loud, standing in big moments, etc. i've only been in atlanta for a couple of years tho.

also, surprised to hear that re: the spurs crowd. they're known for having an elite crowd. maybe that's only in the playoffs tho? i know in the last few years their fans have been great in the postseason.

Spurs fans been resting for the playoffs, just like the team.
