1. Knicks and Hawks played a game where there were a lot of fouls and I am not sure what else...
2. Anthony Davis is still pretty good.
3. Hassan Whiteside gives you a class 20-20-9 block game.
4. Kawahi Leonard is so smooth and good, he really goes unnoticed.
5. The Kings are another team who starts two shitbirds instead of young promising players.
6. Doncic vs. Ayton is going to be a fun Rookie of the year Race.
7. Bulls got a steal with Wendell Carter. Will be a defensive force for years.
8. Oladipo = stud.
9. Derrick Rose shooting over 46% from three this year. Got killed on a game winning shot, but it was against the Lakers - so obviously a no call. But contract in the league right now.

10. Last but not least. This buy out shit in the NBA NEEDS to stop. Lakers need a defenseive big and basically got one for free in Chandler. I dont get it. These players have way too much control in the NBA - and its hurting the sport.
Agreed on a bunch.

Was watching the lakers highlights and said...when did tyson chandler go to the lakers?? Stupid(until the knicks are good and players are coming to NY, but I'm sure the rules will change by then).

DRose!! Lovin it. Especially lovin it because a few on here said he wasn't even an NBA caliber player. He is proof that you cannot take anything away from a player with their time on the knicks(before this regime). Also, playing next to Melo prob killed him. Really love seeing Rose play like this.

I caught a lot of 76ers Indy. Embiid is such a beast. If he stays healthy, he needs to be in the MVP conversation.

As for AD, another ho hum stat line: 37 points, 15 boards, 7 assists, & 4 blocks. What a beast. He's only 25 too. Good God.

he played like this on the knicks, but when you have two black holes it doesnt work...

What's the latest w/ Jimmy Buckets? Is he getting moved or what? This needs to end.
Caris LeVert  
davek3698 : 11/8/2018 9:25 am : link
is a very good basketball player. Great job by the Nets scouting department.
Don’t count out Trier for ROY  
Carl in CT : 11/8/2018 9:28 am : link
I think his minutes will be increasing as his play continues to get better. That would be a shock. I don’t recall an undrafted ROY. Any of you?

Plays well when he plays. Still unhappy and takes nights off against teams he is disinterested in.
Amazing how poorly this has worked out for Minny  
Oscar : 11/8/2018 9:31 am : link
Looked like the next powerhouse in the West. Now Wiggins looks like he has one of the worst contracts in the league, Butler is on the way out and KAT is the softest “superstar” out there.
I think Doncic will stroll to ROY  
Oscar : 11/8/2018 9:32 am : link
Barring injury.

The funny thing is Lauri Markahnen would be the IDEAL guy next to KAT as well. Dunn would be the ball stopper they dont have (love you DRose, but defense was never your thing). A Dunn-teague backcourt could be at least be passable defensively.

Wiggins contract is just a disaster.
The refs followed the actual rule against Rose and the contact  
BrettNYG10 : 11/8/2018 9:36 am : link
That took place was legal.

Also, Rose is a rapist so he shouldn't have a problem with unwanted contact.
we all know Joe Harris is the real star for the Nets

I think Doncic is going to end up as the best player in this draft. Ayton is a stud too.

What rule are you allowed to hit the shooter in the wrist?
And Chandler's last offensive rebound up 1  
dep026 : 11/8/2018 9:54 am : link
made Cael Sanderson jealous. If he played for Phoenix, he gets called for both fouls. But since he plays for Lebron, I mean the Lakers, they are both non-calls.

There's not, but they clapped hands:

Contact with the shooter’s hand (a “high five”) during the shooter’s follow-thru is legal, provided that the contact is incidental and not, for example,
hostile or overly physical.

Thibs made an interesting comment last night. He said this summer was the first time in 5 years that Rose didn't have to rehab his knee. Finally healthy...

I wasn't a fan of him with the Knicks but he's playing great. I laughed at his 3pt shot comment but credit is due, much improved.

I don't know what happened to KAT. He seems to be getting worse and softer.Wiggins has sort always been this player, just hasn't improved...

ive been saying this about kat since he was drafted, he has the talent to be a superstar but he doesnt have the ego and killer instinct...

he plays like a player who doesnt give a shit
One thing to consider about KAT  
dep026 : 11/8/2018 10:44 am : link
he plays for Thibs.
Apparently KAT cares  
LawrenceTaylor56 : 11/8/2018 10:46 am : link
more about his Fortnite record than his Timberwolves record. lol
Agree about Doncic  
Carl in CT : 11/8/2018 10:53 am : link
Just throwing a shout out to Trier.

How can you blame that on Thibs? Does he not like him or is he too hard on him and that makes him play soft? That's even worse...

Thibs sucks as a coach. How he is still employed and charged of personnel is the biggest mystery in the NBA. He does not get the most out of his players.
Great Ben Simmons stat.....  
dep026 : 11/8/2018 11:05 am : link
he is shooting 8% from the floor on any shot 10 feet or longer.

8%!!!!
I’m sitting

Basically court side for the raptors knicks game on Saturday. Should be fun! I realize Leonard is likely only here for one season but will try to stay in the moment
