So....Houston has 90 Points at halftime.

The Nets are like a Chinese restaurant. But instead of putting free mints on the front desk, we put draft picks in the bowl.

Kudos to the Rockets to being an elite team, but NBA is gonna have to implement hand checking rules as this kind of ridiculous offensive output becomes more common

Also, Harden isn't the worst player for D'Lo detractors to compare him with

The OKC transformation of the OKC Thunder is going to be the greatest basketball documentary of our generation

Harden v Russ v KD

the three pillars of three of the greatest teams in this generation



The game last year that ended with that 35ft Curry pull-up

Definitely two of the greatest regular season ball games of this decade. Speechless.

hm...I dunno. I don't think that Lonzo should have rushed in there looking to throw hands but that looks really bad :lol:

I'll take a guy going "hey guys chill chill" and pulling teammates away versus that. 90s, 00s, 10s i still think you should have your teammates back even if its pulling him away from doing something foolish.

i feel for the kid though. his dad has caused all of this, he can't do anything without catching heat for it or he has guys gunning for him for no good reason.

id normally agree... but with Lonzo its different. guys are just waiting for him to do something so they can start a fight, talk crap, get in his head, etc... you have to believe coaches are telling him to just tune that stuff out and walk away. he has shown unreal composure for such a young kind.

If the asking price for okafor is a second round pick and no one is willing to give that up that's insane how over valued draft picks have become

The gift and the curse of his dad

Hes a superstar because of his dad's mouth and his undeveloped talent

He's going to be a star though he responds well to challenges

It's crazy to think his youngest brother is more talented

The Memphis Grizzlies have fired David Fizdale. Memphis has lost 11 out of their 13 past games.

J.B. Bickerstaff will assume head coaching duties on an interim basis.

Fizdale was in his second season as head coach of the Grizzlies after long being one of the league's most highly regarded assistant coaches.

Fizdale benched Marc Gasol for the entire fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Nets.
it gets greater later

He's the definition of a rental. If he goes somewhere & plays well, that team can't pay him any more than $6.2mil in salary next year, while every team with a full MLE can pay him north of $8mil. Why give up any asset if it would preclude you from signing him long-term in the event he plays well.

Biggest surprises for me so far. Indiana in the East and Utah in the West. I look at those teams on paper and I don't see how they have a winning record. Indiana has Bojan getting major minutes fer chrissake and he's one of the worst defenders in the league!

Indiana isn't much of a surprise imo after we played them you could tell they had some legit pieces on that team. Oladipo finally is in a place where he's allowed to be the man like he was in college and not shockingly he's playing at an all star level on excellent efficiency.

Utah is definitely a surprise but they somehow always have stud players landing in their laps. I think Detroit is a bigger surprise imo

I don’t know if the board knows but he was forced to evacuate his crib in LA due to the fires.

Embiid is a legit troll. I have to hand it to him, he knows the craft and is a showman to boot. he had Melo's blood pressure at the boiling point. :lol:

boy that situation in OKC looks like a disaster.
