- Thomas Bryant has been a nice little find for the Wiz.
- Jaren Jackson is going to be in the DPOY race soon.
- Poor Anthony Davis....

I think Kawhi could get there but they've been fine in the games he's missed, and it's a lot of games.

Harden has a lot of haters but the man is balling right now. Best player in the league the last month, scoring like a madman and carrying the Rockets on his back. Playoffs are where legacies are made and he's come up short too often there, but the man could possibly have 3 MVPs at this point and is in contention for another one. Just a special player.

He has to chuck though. Gobert is not a guy you run the offense through. Rubio has always sucked on offense. Ingles is more a catch and shoot person. Favors is inconsistent.

He really doesnt have much help on offense.

Luka looks like a beast  
Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 1/3/2019 10:57 am : link
Ayton looks like he'll be a good player in this league, but I think he'll be on that Aldridge level. Luka looks like he's going to be a perennial MVP candidate, he's a bad mofo. I hope Trae Young is good enough so Atlanta won't feel too bad about messing that one up. Young's shooting has been poor, considering how many Steph comps he got, but he's a pretty damn impressive passer.
Just waiting...

Traded Luka for Young.

Oofa.
more often than not, the Luka discussions I've heard  
santacruzom : 1/3/2019 1:17 pm : link
tend to invoke some kind of "soft European" stereotype, which has been prevalent in NBA talk for ages. They talk about a tough eastern European player in the same way some would say a black guy is articulate... like it's a contradiction.

A guy like Doncic is probably not many family members removed from someone who was killed in a war, killed people in a war, or imprisoned by secret police. It always makes me laugh a bit when the soft European thing comes up.
I love Luka.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/3/2019 1:19 pm : link
Future MVP candidate for sure. Still don't get why the Hawks made that trade.
Besides scoring...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/3/2019 1:22 pm : link
what does Donovan Mitchell bring? He doesn't rebound. He doesn't pass. His defense is meh, being kind. And he's shooting something like 42 % from the floor.

The only shot to trade Lee was last year when he was actually playing well. Kanter should be bought out when Mitch is healthy. Keep Lance for the tank and good guy.

I don't see any scenario the Knicks can move Hardaway without attaching a pick or player. That contract is not worth what he brings. It was a terribe signing but it is what it is. If they need the cap, the will find a way to move it.
I doubt this lasts....

The Hornets are exploring trade packages involving Nic Batum, and would be willing to add Frank Kaminsky to any potential deals, reports @sn_nba.

He’s just taking a line from the shitty Bondy piece from the other day and running with it. Phil Jackson got fired for even entertaining the idea of fielding offers for Porzingis, no chance Dolan allows the front office to do anything but give Porzingis whatever he wants.

Is this a joke?

Are they adding multiple 1st round picks? Both those guys are terrible and Batum has over 50 million coming to him after this season...

No, it's not. Pretty big red flag IMO. He'll still be picked high but maybe not top 5 any more.

Great game.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 1/4/2019 1:36 am : link
I'm assuming the refs thought the initial contact by Tucker was a foul, but no one called it and that's why Durant was allowed to be out of bounds for 5 steps and throw the ball back in with no call. That was truly horrible.

Beard was great. Durant and Steph hit crazy shots. Even shitty Austin Rivers was working Steph over late.

dep026 : 1/4/2019 7:54 am : link
Or how he will be used... but the Warriors actually need Cousins. Their bench outside Iggy and spots from Livingston is really bad. And I know benches play less in the playoffs.... but it seems they literally sometimes get nothing from their bench.

For as average as Clark, West, McGraw (whatever happened to him???), Nick Young, and some of their other characters were.... they contributed for them.

One of the biggest playoff chokers ever but it doesnt stop him... He is worse than Lebron when it comes to humility...

Quote:
"I've got the total package," Harden said. "I get to the basket aggressive, and I shoot my shot. Don't foul me on my jump shot and then we won't have nothing to talk about. It's simple as that.

"[People] talk too much about my fouls and not actually the greatness of what I'm doing out there on the court. That's what we need to focus on."



No, how about releasing the hands from your neck come playoff time before you talk....
