KD is going to the Warriors, aren't you excited?
post #26537 of 27250
why the fuck would KD leave okc? they'll probably win 60+ games next season and have epic battle with Lebron in finals.

Adams made things simple with that anchor at 5 on defense and offense. okc is complete now and makes sense.

the weird part is that if KD leaves I still think okc wins 50+ games and is a legit title contender anyway especially if they scramble and get a al hortford type FA like gasol, hortford, or even loul deng. wb can go kobe/Allen iverson 2.0 and just be the alpha.

I feel sorry for Durant poor guy is never going to win a thing in okc doesn't matter they keep making the playoffs or not.

BTW...

It is not NBA, but I've read an excerpt of Paul Zimmermanns upcoming Autobiography at MMQB (si.com).

 

Excellent, excellent read!

And reading the SIs Vault section made you admire the Long form of sportwritings past. Quality man, Quality!

Memphis is going after Chandler Parsons and are confident they can retain Mike Conley. Either way, they still won't be contenders in the West.

Don't get why Parsons is so coveted tbh.

I wonder why, too. He has size, puts up good stats and an efficient level, but seems to attract a ton of noise. I wonder if it's a marketability thing.

Looking like Noah might be joining Rose in NY, it is supposedly his one and only choice so he could g back "home".

Apparently all press members get a packet of stats before every NBA game

the amount of arbitrary stats is mind boggling. like pelicans are 4-1 on sundays, 6-8 in november

there's so many detailed notes they've practically written the article for the writers

i doubt it'll happen. dubs FO have to renounce either bogut or iggy, not sign barnes and ezeli, and fill the roster out with min vets or rookies. they've gotten i think three picks in this draft (2 second rounders, 1 first rounder) so i guess it could happen?

i realized NBA player gossip is my celebrity/cosmo/kardashian gossip.

I pity the intern who slaves away on these packets only to have the reader skim 1 page worth of text.

it's probably all automated at this point right? all of those stats probably update real time as the official gamekeepers put in the scores.
