    Fuck Nerlens and fuck Wiggins.

    Sh*t, I was talking crap about the Jrue trade but Sixer guards as smoking right now. Carter-Williams with a great star so he goes down and his back-up, Wroten, broke records in his first start by posting a triple-double (first triple-double in a first start by any player) and destroyed the Rockets despite Linsanities 11 3-pointers.

    Oh and Indianas a beast!

    It's kind of funny that the tanking teams are doing so well and one of the teams currently in the running for the Wiggins/Randle/Parker trio are the loaded Nets

    this season is shaping up to be one of the best in recent memory. so many great teams with a shot at the title and a lot of young exciting teams with a shot at the playoffs. the "loaded" (through off-season acquisitions) teams like pistons and nets may not even make the playoffs. already looking forward to the playoff run

    By the Nets you mean the Celtics because Brooklyn traded their 2014 first round pick to Boston as part of the deal that brought KG, PP, and JET to the Nets. Boston is sitting pretty right now...

    That was a phenomenal game. What a display of shooting by both teams.

    i didn't do my research and picked Westbrook in the first round, not knowing that he had a second surgery. thank goodness he came back early. still have Paul George remorse though. also, took Al Jefferson over Anthony Davis. sigh.

    i cringed reading your post - anthony davis is a beast. we havent seen a fantasy center this good since hakeem. im in 3 leagues and its a different bag of treats in each one.

    league 1: picked up westbrook for $17 when Lebron went for $99
    league 2: picked carmelo over davis with my 10th pick. davis was picked 11th :facepalm: al jefferson picked 23rd
    SF league: bought carmelo, anthony davis, and ibaka for $140ish. I should win fg, ft, and blocks every week

    It was the worst draft I can remember in some time. Just bad decisions and second guessing myself. Also passed on Hibbert, and got embroiled in trash talking my Celtic fan buddy during the draft, and instead of taking one of my planned rookie picks (Carter- Williams or Mclemore, both on the board so I had a 50% chance of catching lightning in a bottle)....I ended up taking Rondo just to fuck with him because I knew he wanted to stash him. Utter stupidity

    Anyway, speaking of Rondo it seems like it's not just the Knicks owner, players and media who are delusional - the management seems to think it will be able to trade Iman shumpert and Amare for Rondo...lol

    Hibbert was shit 2/3 of season last year, I had him. I passed on him too.

    I got lucky with Westbrook, picked him up cheap. I have Harden and Westbrook in the SF league, I've got a decent lineup but am suffering in assists.

    I'm a believer in Hibbert this year - his big issue was conditioning, confidence and foul trouble. Dude dominated in the playoffs and went out and got jacked during the offseason...looking at the pics on the court he makes behemoths like Tim Duncan and Dwight Howard look tiny

    He is a monster. A pretty immobile one, but he only needs to be quick over a yard as a center.

    You made a good pick, no doubt. But I was jaded putting up with all those .200 shooting %, 8 point 5 rebound nights where he played 22 mins because he had 3 fouls 3 mins into the 2nd quarter.

    It seems like JR Smith has no motivation now that he has his contract. I can't even watch this team.

    He gave up on life after Rihanna rejected him.
