    Definitely. Most athletic team in the NBA. Beat OKC the other night. Solid team. Way underrated.

    By "Clippers beat the Spurs by a blowout" I meant at least once every season not just this season, even before CP3 came, iirc they pretty much just beat each other by blowouts at least once each season.


    Alos, I beat you by 6-3 points and we ended up tied in our season record. I only got 5th place because I won 6-3 and our first meeting you beat me 5-4. So it was just a very slight advantage, doesn't get any close than that. Lawson is hurt all of a sudden though so I am shit out of luck.

    :lol: Nuggest aren't underrated, everyone ranked them pretty high in the beginning of the season, maybe not as high as OKC and Spurs but they are up there and one of the deepest. Their main concern is that there isn't a one big star that could take that last shot but this team isn't flying low on the radar at all. If anything their start was a disappointment. Understandable though since Chanlder and Gallo were hurt and Iggy was still getting accustomed but they are clicking now.

    "We're not a contending team," said Ujiri. "We also need to be patient as a team, organization, to grow a little bit."

    I think the reason a lot of people had low expectations for the Nuggets and consider them underrated now is because their own GM said they can't contend.

    So they beat OKC and now they're a contender???

    They need to win on the road and at (currently) no. 5 they're not going to get as many home games.

    I didn't say that. I was providing an example. They've won 14 games in a row. Only one other team in the league in better form at the moment. Nobody wants to see Denver in the playoffs.

    Speaking of playoffs, someone's getting smoked 7-2 and taking it out on poor me.

    San Antonio's in a much better position. They won 9 of 12 games without Tony Parker. Are 5 up on Denver and have a road record almost as good as their home record.

    Denver will lose in the 2nd round.

    OKC and SA will play for the mini chip.

    After losing Kyrie Irving and Varejao, I didn't figure to win any playoff games.

    And finished 9 games and 3 places ahead of you.

    And whined A WHOLE LOT LESS.

    i think memphis could turn out to be the stumbling block this year. denver on a good night can beat anybody. memphis is much more solid, though.

    Seems significant that their best 5 (3 +Allen&Battier) are destroying everybody and they are cruising to an 800 record w/o riding those horses into the ground. That lineup will see a lot more minutes in playoffs.

    The Kemp dunks were otherworldly. +1 on the assessment of his skills. But eventually, he ate himself out of the league

    SA has a better record but I'd be hard pressed to pick between them in a game tomorrow.

    And wait, you're whining about my whining?
