    brandon roy is getting paid $18 million. wow....


    :fu: okc is only paying $70 million in salaries. guys come on. you coulda stepped your game up a bit and had a lasting dynasty. harden even said he would've been ok with a non max salary. goddamn. harden as starting pg and westbrook on bench would've been fucking awesome. or you could've done the rick carlisle thing and just had a rotation of players with a nominal starting lineup that played a lot less than other teams

    Those uniforms look awful. Both teams wearing all one solid color, plus the sleeves. Bleh.

    My stance on him softened after I heard he decked Bieber. Turns out that wasn't true so yeah. I don't know. Does he still stare down guys after he dunks on them? That used to be one of his irritating qualities aside from his shitty commercials

    Say what you will about him (he deserves all the negativity coming his way), but Agent Zero was a legit franchise player back in the mid-to-late 2000's. I think it was the '06-'07 season when I seem to remember him hitting game-winner after game-winner. Kobe Bryant went on record saying he was one of the toughest players to guard one-on-one.

    And I really liked that Wizards roster with Arenas, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, Andray Blatche, Deshawn Stevenson, and JaVale McGee. They had a pretty good rivalry going with LeBron's Cavs.

    I think Blake brings a lot of this abuse down upon himself, but it's unbelievable how much of a leap forward he's taken. Dude is an all around beast and my pick as MVP if KD and Lebron got kidnapped to go play for the Monstars

    he has really turned around this season. did a great job on durant.
    but he always reminds of a certain kind of rambunctious two-year-old. he seems to be a bump-magnet. and of course he gets totally clobbered almost every game.

    so now that the regular season is over, we should revisit the predictions we made at the start of the season.

    in the preseason i predicted that this would be one of the worst rookie classes ever.......













    .....and i was SO SO right. omg. rookie of the year is MCW and the whole class is pointless after that. actually, strike that, MCW is rendered pointless as well because of this embarrassment of a Sixers season and it would serve this franchise right if all this tanking tainted their impressionable young rookie irrevocably. let's just move on.


    MVP: Kevin Durant
    Most Improved: Goran Dragic, but you could talk me into Blake Griffin
    Coach of the Year: Jeff Hornacek, but Pop will probably get it

    I'd take dipo or Drummond over mcw. Everything else I agree with.

    Lol I forgot he's a sophomore. Didn't see him at all last year. Dipo then

    Wow this class is shittier than I thought

    If adelman played Gorgui at the start of the year would've chose him

    I thought the plumlees were twins for some reason.

    That Gorgui Dieng kid in Minn was very impressive late season after Pek got hurt. There is lots of potential there. Had he started all season, we might be calling him ROY.

    I expected Kelly Olynyk to be a massive fail, but he did ok.
