When teams shoot good, they win? When they don't, they lose? And somewhere in the middle are the league averages? :naaa:

:D Of course. The point here is the obscene numbers. The wide open 3% in wins was around 42% last year. The open 3% in wins was around 36%. Wide open in losses was around 35%, and open 3s in losses was around 32%.

Hate the game, not the player. This is what the NBA has transformed into, for better or worse. You can say it's an excuse to blame losses on opposing teams simply shooting lights out, but so often in recent years, that's been the reality. The only thing you can somewhat control is the quality of shots taken, not the actual volume.

Has Harden tanked his value enough where Khris/Donte/1st gets it done? God I wish the Bucks had assets and weren’t seemingly totally uninterested in Harden

I was on the fence about Harden, but yesterday to me really justified the position the Bucks leaked. That was the weakest, most non-competitive **** I have ever seen from a great player. The sad Charlie Brown walk of press availability.

Harden is a pathetic teammate, is pouting after years and years of getting what he wanted personnel wise and is pushing 3 bills. Never ever ever want that queef on my team.

Harden is at a crossing point in his career. He's either going to continue to balloon up and Anthony Mason himself out the league or he'll find a new home, lose the weight and be dominate like he always is. Hope he makes the right choice for his sake.

Conspiracy theory: Harden and Kyrie are conspiring to get James to BKN. Harden goes full malcontent and says Houston sucks; meanwhile, Kyrie vanishes and has no return date, perhaps pressuring BKN's FO to overpay for James as Kyrie's "insurance."

Getting concerned. Can Harden even fit down a chimney anymore?

I really think Zach Collins would be ideal on this team, I know his injury history is pretty scary but it is also what has Portland ready to move on from him. Maybe they would be willing to move him for DJW and Craig.

DJW and Craig for Collins and C.J. Elleby

Then sign someone like Trevor Ariza if he is bought out.

Holiday - Augustine - Merill - Adams (2W)
DDV - Pat - Forbes
Middleton - Trevor Ariza - Nwora - C.J. Elleby
Giannis - Zach Collins - Thanasis - Diakite (2W)
Lopez - Portis

I'm just patiently waiting for the Rockets to blow it up so that we can swoop in with a Wilson for PJ Tucker deal.

No thanks. I get the point, and would've jumped all over that before the season, but Harden just scares the hell out of me now.

Remember when people use to complain that small market Milwaukee will never attract a superstar. Now there is an superstar that wants to play here and the Bucks are like;

I was all aboard the trade whatever it takes to pair Harden and Giannis YOLO train before the season, but after Harden went to a strip club maskless, gained a ton of weight, and Midds started the season where he left off last year (as a legit top 15 player), it’s not worth it.

In the current situation Midds is much more likely to be productive than Harden. I don’t think Jrue and Giannis are going to be fans of Harden being slower on D than Brook because he is so out of shape.
