Who're the very good wings (plural?) they have? Ariza? Experienced guards that are too old for anything? You think prigioni and terry are good? Prigioni can't drive or defend to save his life and terry while better than he has been is still pretty much trash. Prigioni has good court vision and his shooting is good enough to play off ball but he's still barely a backup point guard

They're an ok passing team and the reason they're ok is Harden. Without harden they'd be way below average

Who do they really have? Josh smith? The dude who Detroit is paying millions and millions not to play on their team? Jones? Beverly? Montejunas has been the only surprise. Without harden I highly doubt they make playoffs in the east this year

Yes, I know it's you're satisfied.gif

Wait you're ragging on somebody for correcting trivial grammatical errors?

Really?

This thread has become the idfnl thread. All we ever talk about is idfnl

For context, Lawyerdad finds value in following me everywhere correcting grammatical errors in threads I frequent. It's weird, but perhaps you/Steve should ask him whether it's useful to the thread?

Yeah superhero, my evil plot would have worked if it wasn't for you meddling kids. Just talk basketball which is what I'd do if you and your sidekicks would accept opposing viewpoints. A root cause of your complaint is Neo's rancor, but that's inconvenient.

Of all the talk of the dominance of the west, it's a 2 horse race between the Spurs and Warriors. Injuries this season have been acute. I'd welcome a Hawks - Warriors finals.

Here, let me hold your hand. Do you have a comment about this substantive post about the NBA? No? Then don't reply. You do? Great. Say something useful that doesn't waste space calling me and others stupid. Do I really bother you? Then ignore me, otherwise find a new tool to augment your social standing.

the only context we need is you "correcting" right grammar several times in this thread because of some slight you perceived

and yeah i'm pretty sure neo is not the problem here

Bulshit, your shit isn't topical, its pure trolling and you just bring up the same shit no one agrees with to goad people into arguing with you over and over again. For example you bitch and whine about overpaying then when Carter Williams got traded you say you don't agree with the Bucks despite the explanation that he is a rookie on a rookie contract (very damn cheap) and Bucks lets go a guy who will ask for max. You contradict your dumbass just so you can troll.

You whine and bitch more than most here. You continually "oh queue this reply from ____" as fucking defense mechanism to make yourself look like a goddamn victim.

Weren't you telling me to leave this thread and start a Lakers thread? So now that I am telling you to leave a thread I started you are going to call me out on it you fucking douche?

You know absolutely nothing about basketball, I have no idea why you waste your time. I try to ignore you but everyone is entertaining your dumb and idiotic shit because it is so out of bounds moronic that no could believe anyone is that fucking dumb.


And yes it has become my problem, you actually became the threads problem, you're the cancer that we just can't get rid off.

It's really fucking sad and even sadder is dude is relinquishing in it. We fed the troll and now it's too fat to get him out of the door.

And in a season where so much shit is going on too, great MVP race, amazing post season match ups, playoff atmosphere for the last month, amazing records being made, etc.... yet we indulge the troll. baldy[1].gif

Topical. Look at my last 30, 50, 100 posts. Topical. You whine RFX, ball don't lie:

I have no idea why you don't put me on ignore. Yet, you "try". Talk basketball. If you don't like what I say, pass it over, like I pass over your 5,000 word posts.

To be honest, at this point I am still surprised at how well they are playing. When you hear of a team that's philosophy is to drive or shoot 3s and you'd think it's a crazy idea that shouldn't work and cannot be contenders bt I guess they got the right players for it starting with Harden. I think this is why Harden will get a nod for the MVP over Curry.


I am still not sure how they will do moving forward without Beverly, he annoys and takes the other teams very good PG (which are every teams) and I don't think Prigioni can do half of what he could do.

Ignore doesn't work if people quote you dumbfuck. I mean it's difficult to enjoy the thread or ignore you when you take up 1/3 or half of the posts in a page.

Your last 30, 100, 1000 post aren't topical. Posting Kobe stats just because you want to bitch about your fantasy league isn't topical, it's trolling. You constantly bringing up the salary cap and max players isn't topical, it's trolling.

Again you want to bitch and whine and continue your dumb ramblings, you want to talk shit about Kobes stats and how the Lakers sucks, start your own fucking thread. Hell talk about me or Neo's gifs or lawyerdad correcting your spelling or whatever, just do it somewhere else where it is much easier to ignore you. I won't enter that thread, I promise. Just fucking go.

I haven't mentioned kobe in months. My posts are topical (even kobs) and anyone that looks will see that. Ball don't lie, superhero. Whiners gon whine.

I've no interest in a thread that talks about you, Neo or Lawyerdad. I'd be pleased to see all 3 of you ignore me in "your thread". I told moderation 2 years ago to put quoted posts and watchlist post in ignore. Maybe whine to them? I can't help you there. Your problem. Deal with it, Russy.

I feel like the only team that has a chance against Warriors is Grizzlies and maybe the Spurs cuz everybody else is really injured. Warriors are really lucky to have almost no injuries this year to major players. Also they were really really lucky that specifically David Lee and Bogut were injured cuz it let Dray and Mo and Justin really step it up

It's odd tho. You think of Grizzlies as a grit and grind type team with the best defense and just enough offense to survive but Warriors actually have better defense and much better offense

Memphis has had a pretty poor run of it post all star break. They can't score enough to cope with GSW.

GSW has the ability to match other team's styles and that is true for Memphis. Early season I would have agreed, but they don't have a realistic chance. I agree, their front court has been forced to develop, and they have.

Or you can just stop trollin? Again you posting Kobe stats isn't topical because you only bitch when he does bad and relates to your fantasy league which has a separate thread.

I mean up to this day you don't get the russy joke so you are obviously an idiot.

I am not going to go back and forth with your dumbass though. It just fuels you and it's exactly what you want.

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 them in the playoffs. they have the potential, though.

i think it's pretty clearly gsw or sas in the west. the other other teams w/ a chance: lac, mem, or hou (provided everyone gets healthy). but i don't think the clippers match up well with that many teams, namely cuz they can't guard anyone on the wings.

it's atl or cleveland in the east obviously. i can't say i believe in chicago at all, but i guess they have the best shot of any of the other godforsaken teams. milwaukee has lost 15 of their last 20 games.
