    I know you didn't, but you might as well have typed all that up. That's kind of what we expect of you now.

    more potential trouble in okc:
    Looks clear that there is some frustration and friction between Jackson and his teammates right now. They're almost freezing him out.

    I think the Spurs were smart to wait him out. If he plays well, give him the $. If not...

    I'm setting the over/under on the number of games played by Brook Lopez this season at 55. Optimistic, I know.

    It's an art form, flopping to both gain a game advantage and troll your enraged detractor base at the same time :laugh:

    Sort of agree... OKC doesn't have the personel to play like Heat or Spurs for example. It's sort of 2001 76ers scenario but with 2Iversons and crappier role players. They obviously failed Harden trade though. They are still pretty good and made it to the finals so it's not like they aren't successful.

    Don't say that. I have him in fantasy.

    Honestly, if I had to bet right now, I'd take the 55 as long as they were fantasy playoff weeks.

    the best players will play awesome no matter the system and might even be better without a system especially one that doesn't play to their strengths. system is more for the role players and those who can't create their own shots. scott brooks is running more sets although it's pretty simple stuff like flex for their reserve players now that durant, westbrook. lamb, mcgary and jackson are all out

    i feel like the way the warriors are running the triangle is a better way than what the knicks are doing. they're not doing full on triangle for every possession and they don't do the weak side two man game like in traditional triangle. they put shooters there to stretch the floor for a rolling lane. also the triangle is really designed for a big man with a dominant post up game so they get good positioning on the low block with secondary shot attempts coming from efficient mid range scorers on the weaakside. neither golden state or knicks have a dominant center with a post up game. i mean dalembert and cole aldrich are getting the ball on the low block a lot and they can't do shit with it so they just pass it out which is just a waste of shot clock time.
