Brooklyn is just trolling other teams by forcing Miami and Portland to match their offer sheets on Tyler Johnson and Allan Crabbe, respectively. Nicely done.

NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1791post #26852 of 270507/11/16 at 7:44ampost #26853 of 270507/11/16 at 7:49amThread Starterone of the best, if not the best PF ever...Quote:Tim Duncan retires after 19 seasons, five NBA titles
After five NBA titles, two NBA MVP awards, 15 All-Star appearances and a spot on many lists as the greatest power forward of all time, San Antonio Spurs star Tim Duncan is calling it a career.
Duncan, who turned 40 in April, announced Monday that he is retiring from the NBA after 19 seasons, all with San Antonio.
His final game ended up being a 113-99 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals on May 12. Quiet for much of the series, Duncan showed flashes of his All-Star form in what turned out to be his career finale, with 19 points, five rebounds and a block in 34 minutes.
"Man, he's meant a lot, a great amount," Spurs small forward Kyle Anderson said. "When you have Timmy on the floor and you're out there, it's so easy to give all your effort because you know he's just out there talking, he's out there making sure everybody's playing hard.
"He's like, I don't want to say a father figure out there, but he's like a big brother out there. I love Timmy. He's been a great teammate."
Since drafting Duncan, the Spurs posted a 1,072-438 regular-season record. That is the best 19-year stretch in NBA history and tops in the four major U.S. sports over the past 19 years.
Duncan partnered with Gregg Popovich to post the most wins by a player and coach in NBA history with 1,001.
Popovich will discuss Duncan's decision to retire at a news conference Tuesday.
The retirement brings an end to the Duncan-Tony Parker-Manu Ginobili Big Three that ranked as one of the most prolific trios in NBA history.
No group won more regular-season or playoff games than those three. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, they were the first set of three or more teammates to win four titles together since Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Cooper and Kurt Rambis.
A four-year star at Wake Forest, Duncan was the No. 1 overall pick by the Spurs in the 1997 draft and made an immediate impact, winning the NBA Rookie of the Year award and earning All-NBA First-Team honors, the first of 10 selections in his career. He led the Spurs to a championship in his second season, in 1999, and was named Finals MVP.
He would go on to win four more titles, in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014, and was named Finals MVP twice more, in 2003 and 2005. San Antonio posted a win percentage of at least .600 in 19 straight seasons with Duncan, the longest such run in NBA history.
Duncan finishes his career with averages of 19.0 points, 10.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.2 blocks per game. He ranks 14th all time in points (26,496), sixth in rebounds (15,091) and fifth in blocks (3,020).
Duncan made the NBA All‐Defensive First Team eight times. He is only the third player in NBA history to win 1,000 career regular-season games. Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Parish are the only players with more career victories.post #26854 of 270507/11/16 at 8:50ampost #26855 of 270507/11/16 at 9:00ampost #26856 of 270507/11/16 at 9:10ampost #26857 of 270507/11/16 at 9:14ampost #26858 of 270507/11/16 at 9:35amDid he get someone's balls again?
Draymond Green has been arrested for assault on Sunday in East Lansing, according to MLive.
We're waiting for more details on the situation, but this obviously doesn't sound good. "The police department is not confirming any arrest with that name," said Lt. Scott Wrigglesworth, the East Lansing police department Public Information Officer. "What I can confirm is that we did arrest a current NBA basketball player this weekend and he was arrested for assault. That's all we're confirming right now." We'll pass along any and all updates on Green's status.post #26859 of 270507/11/16 at 10:12ampost #26860 of 270507/11/16 at 10:51ampost #26861 of 270507/11/16 at 1:00pmI would take Duncan over Bill Russell any day. Don't give me that crap about 11 rings. He was a better offensive player and just as good defensively.
On another note, I haven't been following baseball as much these days. But there's no fucking way Big Papi is not juicing. 40 year olds don't compete for the triple crown.post #26862 of 270507/11/16 at 1:13pmQuote:Originally Posted by Akeem

baseball is weird, there is actually a precedence of hitters (especially contact/high average hitters having great seasons towards the end of their careers).
case in point. ted williams during his last season in 1960 at the age of 41 (he also missed 3 years in his prim serving in the war as a fighter pilot)
also tony gwynn:
weirdly papi's player comparison is ted williams (as a hitter anyway) because they're both left handed and played in fenway for majority of their careers. both are contact/high average/high on base percentage guys/ and seem to hit for power incidentally (because of swings that created high arching flight paths).
another thing, fenway is actually a shitty park for power left handed pull hitters (because other than the short pesky pole at 301ft it extends directly right to 380ft and then 420ft for left handed power zones). ted williams and papi aren't actually pull hitters though (power to all areas).
it even happens in nba basketball too, but from that 32-36 year old age range where previously super athletic players come in their own and start to finally be able to merge athletic prowess with matured complete games like Dr J, Michael Jordan.post #26863 of 270507/11/16 at 1:28pmpost #26864 of 270507/11/16 at 1:38pmQuote:Originally Posted by double00
hitting for average late in a career is one thing. triple crown includes HRs, no?
dunno about williams, but gwynn was definitely not a power hitter. i think he topped out at like 12 HRs.
and i think they're juicing the baseballs this year.
(sorry for contributing to egregious derail)
Well, he sort of addressed that:
both are contact/high average/high on base percentage guys/ and seem to hit for power incidentally (because of swings that created high arching flight paths).
And as far as the Triple Crown goes, obviously if you hit for high average with a bunch of homers you're likely to have solid rbi totals as well.
You're right that Gwynn definitely wasn't a power hitter, but I'm not following where you're going with that. If a guy who historically has 20% of his hits go for home runs hits .330 at the age of 40 and a guy who historically has 2% of his hits go for homers also hits .330 at the age of 40, I'm not sure the fact that the first guy hits 40-50 homers makes it any more or less likely he's juicing.
Probably just not understanding your post correctly, though.post #26865 of 270507/11/16 at 1:50pm
