Unless he got paid some grands if he didn't.
Not that i think what Love said isn't true.
If you want to try to measure the elements of basketball that are supposedly unmeasurable, spend a game just watching Marc Gasol.

unless he's even smarter than you think and uses the "if I was lying, I would've come up with better story" angle to his advantage.

Because if the team starts slow and misses the playoffs because of that, it'll be his fault. He was crying and moaning about "surrounding greatness with greatness" and now when they actually have some good players, where is he?

You mean like this?

The suggestion was made to Love that if he was seriously trying to cover up some bad or embarrassing behavior he would've created a more believable tale.

"I would have done some crazy story, the way my mind works. But I can't even think of anything better right now," Love said, wearing a white cast on his arm with a freshly shaved head that's part of a breast cancer fundraiser with NFL star Larry Fitzgerald.

Tirion wrote:I watched some of Dallas-NY game to scout them and feel better about my prediction already.

1) Not only they have no Dirk, Marion is out this week too.
2) Because of that their D is suspect. Knicks got a lot of easy point of backdoor cuts (good news for AK) and generally were able to generate good looks without much pressure.
3) To piggyback on previous point, Mayo and Collinson are below average defenders individually and Crowder while being above average is a rookie and prone to mistakes.
4) A lot of turnovers. Collinson and Mayo are new to the team and it shows. Mayo is also just not a smart player in general.
5) Their offense is better than their defense, but not by that much. They have no post presence other than Kaman, Mayo was carrying them by being hot from three, but that is not sustainable.


Boom! Weak-ass Mavs.

If Rubio broke his hand in the same way Love said he did it, no one would be questioning it. Love clearly just rubs some posters here the wrong way.

Impossible.

Obviously sarcasm doesn't come across when quoting, even with the wink.

Stupid injuries.


Seems like the best case scenario is 5-5 right now.

Watched some Denver-Memphis last night and it gave me hope.

Nuggets look like a team ready to quit on their coach.

Revised predictions with Love:

23 @ Portland – This one is for Roy. Also they have no bench. (W)

24 @ Golden State – We owe them one. Clay Thompson is a bust.(W)

27 @ Sacramento – They are a mess. (W)

28 @ L.A. Clippers – Clippers are deep and good. Again too much talent, plus it's a 2nd of a b-2-b and the last game of a long road trip. (L)

30 vs Milwuakee – Should bounce back at home. (W)

They need at least 10 wins in November to be on pace for 50 wins and firmly in the playoffs by the end of the season.

This losing stretch is brutal AND it's going to cost the team in the long run.

Thompson was balling tonight and Sacramento just beat the Lakers. No easy games on this trip

He will be bawling his eyes out on 24th.

And no defense was played in that SAC-LAL game.

I would be happy if we can win 1 game on the road and the Bucks game at TC.
