he doesn't watch his own team :lol:
what a joke.


James Harden with the excuses already for when he predictably peters out in the playoffs.

If Dallas finish top 5 in the West by seasons end, Luka Doncic will be the MVP. The kid is insanely good. The next Larry Legend.

That's what I said this Summer. I also picked them to make the Playoffs. He's the clear MVP candidate to me.

His play is off the charts for a 20 yr old, unathletic white euro dude. The story alone is something the NBA can promote world wide, "Luka Legend".

Watching Dallas play though, they are in need of a big guy that can box out and do dirty work/finish. They also need a secondary play maker, Barea will help when he returns but they need a long term solution to both of these things.

embiid with ZERO points against the raptors. 0/11 from the field, 0/3 from the FT line, in almost 32 minutes.

Keep it on the downlow, but Mo Wagner, who I wanted to steal from the Lakers last year is killing it this season. Check out his per 36 numbers. And the kid is a fighter, he doesn't back down.

24 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 70%FG, 49% from 3, 80% from the line. Wow!

Find me a way to steal this kid from Washington

trae with his second career 49points game. atlanta still sucks, but he's developing well.
steph and him together on the backcourt would be so fun to watch, hopefully in one of the next all-star break it will happen.

Regardless of if I like David Fizdale or not, talk about a scapegoat for a poorly constructed roster. Hardly his fault.

Luka is something else, gonna be nice fight between him and Giannis for the next decade MVP's. Davis & Embiid in the dog years, health pending.

Still wish the Warriors picked up Tacko Fall.

Luka is going to be a hall of famer. He's a top three favorite here.

Still cracks me up that Ayton and Bagley were picked over him. When are people going to learn that bigs are pointless?

he's been one of the worst head coach of the league hands down. the knicks are a dysfunctional team (and a dysfunctional organisation) but man, the guy was doing just a terrible job.
it may be a coincidence, but since he was fired that same knicks team is 6-6. under mike miller!
knicks fans are still seeing s*** for goodness sake, but they're winning games they had to win more or less.

I remember throwing a bunch of trade ideas to get him on the Warriorswhen he was playing in Philly. He was stuck in the middle of "The process" behing Embiid, Okaflub and Noel, and looked better than those 3 (Embiid was inured) in his limited minutes. Glad he's found his niche in Sac, suits him well. He's really mobile and long and has a natural knack for putting the ball in the basket.
