He, like LeBron, also get the **** beat out of them because the refs don't want them to shoot 25 FTs every game.

It's 58%. Yes it's bad.

I think he meant that he wasn't getting a ton of points off FTs.

Bled was definitely missed. Really hurt the bench as DDV had to try and do his Bled impersonation. He's not quite there yet as the top defender at the point of attack and it takes away his ability to create chaos offball and bring energy off the bench.

Marvin was missed for those lineups when the Celtics went small and the Bucks matched. Need Marvin for the 4 there. Otherwise, they lack rim protection since Bud's D is based on multiple times protectors.

Pat was missed because he is better than Sterling. (Remember what he did against the Celtics last postseason)

Giannis didn't even seem to have near his best and put up those stats. If you don't have true rim protectors, Giannis is going to destroy your interior.

Stevens didn't use the 'screen and fullback blocking roll' play more than a couple times. I think he is trying to save it until the playoffs to avoid the refs getting too much footage on it.

Is this a shot at me? This feels like a shot at me. :x

It was for sure a shot at you haha


You know the Knicks covet Lavine. A fine organization like that doesn't just go after scrubs.

There was one that they never looked at. I think it was a Hayward attempt, ball was still dancing on the rim when GIannis secured it. Definitely looked questionable live.

But still, Saltics gonna be salty. Smart was a **** wizard the entire game, got away with murder because he has the refs fooled.


You have a rough timestamp on this? Literally no recollection of it. May have been peeing.

Made this for your viewing pleasure.



Definitely do not think it was a goaltend after looking at it, Massholes will be Massholes. YZo, Tatum went 1-18 so they would roast us in a series, I heard.

Lol Smart is trash.


In the modern NBA he can defend multiple positions, is good on the perimetre and hits 3s. I don't like the dude but he'd be perfect next to Giannis.


Missed these absurd spellings. :wink:

True af. Shaq was the first player I ever saw get hacked every play. LeBron got hacked so much he became a flipper. Giannis is still young but he rarely gets the calls.

Feel bad for Sterling. I dont know what happened from the end of last year until now, but he looks like hes getting worse game by game. Hopefully we get a talented young player to replace him next year.

He's just better in a reduced role, specifically not as a handler unless driving an open lane to the basket.

Agreed though, would be nice to find a young guy with more skills and a brain to replace his minutes.

Sterling looked very good defensively but pretty awful on offense, sad to say. I had high hopes.

Was going to completely lose my **** if Smart got away with the ole Shane Battier charge.

Why no Marvin? Injury? Holding off on the small ball against a likely playoff opponent?

For sure agree with that. Wonder if it's partly on Bud for putting him in lineups hes forced to create.

No way. He's a bitch, plain and simple. I don't want to cheer for anyone like that, no matter how effective.

Anyone who has ever played ball, whether it was high school/college or just on the playground, has played with guys like him and hated them. There's a big difference between getting by on hustle, grit and guile and just being a bitch. While both ways can be successful, only the former is respectable.


Big difference between a try hard (GP3, Sterling) and a cheap shot (Smart, Delly).

I hate the latter.
