What's up stupid you want to say something?

Comment was in the context of a messaging app used to communicate with (presumably) friends and family you can trust. Keep your racist comments and dictures to yourself and you can live into gray old age without having to apologize for a "poor personal decision"

and why is your profile private you stupid fuck? who are you hiding from?

That's just it though, the internet is rife with examples of people making what seem like totally Innocent comments or slightly off color jokes only to have them blow up into major, life changing public witch hunts, sometimes months later.
It's not all dictures and racist comments, not even close.

It might be if some of y'all would start pulling your weight.

can we talk about bucks? i think they're going to be awesome this year and dominating in a year or two.

MCW/Middleton/Giannis/Parker/Monroe is already pretty good and potential is just insane. they're all roadrunner giants (except maybe monroe but he's strong as fuck). the shortest dude in that 5 is MCW and he's 6'6

MCW has to make that jason kidd level jump in shooting and they're going to be fire especially if giannis develops his outside shooting too. defense is already amazing, they just got a dominant post player who's great at passing and the team around him is long and fast enough to make his life easier protecting the rim. middleton will be an all star next year and parker will be an all star in two at most three years.

not to mention their bench is damn deep. the best mix of veterans and young'ns. the vets have been around forever. for the young'ns i really like henson and ennis and holy shit some team is going to overpay them someday. I also really like copeland and vasquez and think both were underrated pickups.

also jason kidd turned out to be a much better coach than we initially thought. i think him and brad stevens and quin snyder are the best up and coming coaches.

bucks defense is like the warriors at a higher level of height and speed. so excited for them. would move to Milwaukee just to be a homer.


other team i'm excited about is jazz, but we've yet to see anything really concrete from exum, hood, burke, neto and burkes. two of them have to make that butler/green/green type jump because the only three real players is hayward, favors, and gobert. their situation is good cuz they're in the west and they're probably going to get another lottery pick not to mention the high picks they're getting from the nets from the deron williams trade who're already looking to tank. also they were the best defense in the NBA after the all star break... they're already really good

kind of excited for the heats but less so than the above two. i don't really see a bright future for them. i think they have a high probability of imploding.



honestly don't understand why kings picked willy cauley stein and then got koufos. should've picked one of the SFs like justice winslow or stanley johnson. he's not going to get enough minutes and that's going to hinder his development and lessen his trade value.

Yeah, Bucks are solid, but they still have to contend with the Cavs and Bulls in their division. Because of that, they're going to be a bottom-4 seed in the playoffs for the foreseeable future.
post #23576 of 27250
i think bucks have a higher potential than the bulls. cavs will dominate in the near future, but after 2, 3 years i feel like bucks are going to really give a run for their money

tbh tho their brand of basketball isn't the type that i like to watch. i love that spurs, hawks, warriors type ball the most and bucks won't have that unless they develop their shooting more. it looks like they're going to play a lot of post up at every position for awhile



who's the dude that makes the leap next year like butler and green? my top two is giannis and mirotic. giannis cuz giannis but i think mirotic will get more playing time under hoiberg cuz of the spacing he provides. besides those two i'm really intrigued by clarkson and schroeder

It's gotta be Mirotic. I mean, dude was a legit RotY candidate last year. Nothing against Giannis but that kid's got some maturation issues to deal with. And that pains me to say considering my love for Hellas.

Are we sold on mcw? It's easy to fall in love with the guy but all his efficiency stats are atrocious. Needs the ball in his hands to be effective, not a great defender, can't make anything outside of 5 feet. Reminds me of a young kidd, who is a big mcw fan apparently, but wasn't there some rumblings of them trying to move mcw? Then they brought in greivas.

Can't believe te pistons traded knight and Middleton for Jennings. Bucks/pistons have a nice easy exchange of talent up there. Monroe signs with bucks, ersan goes to pistons, I like both moves

I'm the resident MCW hater on this thread :bow:

Guys poised to take a leap:
Jabari Parker
Dame Lillard (yes, he's already a star but his usage rate will be recockulous now)
Rudy Gobert ( unless you already consider last year his 'leap')
Brandon Knight
Tobias Harris
um...Reggie Jackson?

Among the rooks I think Towns, Russell and Mudiay have the biggest opportunity to throw up gaudy stats

We forgot to mention Kobe Bryant.
