Doc has a decent chance of making it work, as he was able to get the most out of a knucklehead like Rondo. He also has the fabulously bitchy Chris Paul to also keep him in line

Definitely not low risk with Chris Paul around.

I predict they will not get along, as Paul is a special little flower when it comes to managing the ball. Stephenson will have the same problem he had in Charlotte with Kemba and Evans, and Paul is a nasty political operative, so even if they play different rotations, he can still undermine Stephenson. Paul is a Kobe-lite when it comes to guys wanting to play with him.

this. i've liked barnes when he is on a team i like (lakes, clips). but he certainly never lasts long. i get the very strong feeling he is not a good lockerroom guy.

i'm not sure about the move. but one argument in the clips favor is that he is going to be coming into a veteran team that has played together a long time now and has a strong culture. one of the things i heard in charlotte was that it was a young team and there was nobody to keep him in line/be an example. that won't be a problem with cp, blake and dj. i think they'll let him know how he needs to behave.

So the idiot who can't read is commenting on the idiot who can't spell his own name correctly. Please Cuh-ris Broussard tell me all about the achievements of Duh-wayne Wade at Harvard BSchool. JFC what a joke. I suppose Bron Bron will be off to Yale Law later tonight eh?

^ Can't stand him. Him and Stephen A. are insufferable to listen to

If they give it to LeBron they should fucking drink bleach.
Iggy as a nod to not only a great finals but for taking one for the team by coming off the bench all season for the first time in his career. Would be a great career arc.

LBJ: I'm the best player in the world. It's as simple as that.



24 hours later....



LBJ: I don't really care for individual awards. This is for the team. I'm all about team.

He's right though: http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/heres-another-story-about-how-great-lebron-james-is/

His performance in the Finals has been more dominant than any player, ever.

^ it's up there if he keeps playing like that, certainly most dominant since 2000-2002 finals performances by Shaq.
2003 Duncan was impressive as well, 24-17-5-5 lol

I assume you are just busting LBJ's balls, as each comment was in different context.  Declaring himself as the best in the world, which he currently is, does not mean he focuses his intentions on the individual awards.

Meh. Not sure you can make that claim when your team is losing. The true measure of a dominate performance is one that leads to a win.

Not at all. Not even close. A dominant player keeping a team competitive is worth as much as a winning player tipping the team over the top. It's a team game. 1 guy cannot do it all, regardless of how dominant.

It's not a claim. It's a statistical analyses that shows that by by many statistical metrics - traditional and advanced - LeBron's final performance is the best ever. Trying to claim otherwise is nonsense.

Literally everyone I know or listen to has written off the Cavs. It would be a nice troll if they win tonight
post #22860 of 27359

^^^ the series ain't done yet. 

 

so many shot clock violations in this series. i get that the cavs are trying to limit possessions, but you gotta at least hit iron. otherwise rebounds mean nothing.
