Weeeeak... rule #1: to win an NBA championship, you need a superstar. (Detroit Pistons of 2004 are the exception, not the rule.)

This Knicks squad is like the real life Utah Jazz (tho not as good)... just not a championship team imo.

Should have won that one too. But this was redemption enough.

Your frontcourt was booty and you had zero depth...

I'm shocked my team got passed LeBron, but that should show you enough that this isn't a Utah Jazz level team. The Jazz have (had) nowhere near the depth and experience of this roster, nor a pure go-to scorer like McCollum.

Looking forward to this series with LA.

You're the only one crazy enough to believe that a team with John Wall and Kevin Durant and a stacked roster couldn't beat Giannis from a year ago (not as good as he is now) and Paul friggin Millsap :lol: Stop it.

And yea...

Whiteside - Gobert
Hayward - CJ
Favors - Favors
GHill - Otto
JJohnson - JJohnson
Ingles - Mills

I'd say the Jazz are a pretty good comp in terms of style and composition.

A stacked roster? :lol:

Who? Lance Stephenson and Julius Randle?

That draft was supposed to include the projected progression and career arc of players like Giannis, so yes, that was exactly the type of player I was expecting to build around. And it wasn't just Millsap, I also had DeAndre Jordan and Patrick Beverley (both 1st Team All-NBA defense), Vets like Courtney Lee, JR Smith, a healthy Parsons and Enes Kanter.

I understand your argument about "stars" winning championships, but again, we're projecting this BAT on career trajectory heading into this season. And if McCollum didn't have to share a backcourt with Lillard, and/or played in a large market, he would most definitely qualify as a star with his abilities to create and get buckets as efficiently as he does. The guy is an absolute stud. And with my roster, he's been surrounded by complimentary players that allow him to flourish as that lead guard. While he may not be a "superstar", he certainly has the ability to take over a game or hit the clutch shots late.

Ok... you're gunna counter with JR Smith, Kanter, Courtney Lee? Lol cmon man.



John Wall/ Jamal Crawford/ JJ Barea
Tony Allen/ Iman Shumpert/ Pablo Prigioni
Kevin Durant/ Lance Stephenson/ Jonas Jerebko
Tobias Harris/ Julius Randle/ Josh McRoberts
Steven Adams/ Channing Frye/ Amare Stoudemire


Is much better than


Patrick Beverley
Courtney Lee/ JR Smith
Giannis/ Chandler Parsons
Paul Millsap
DeAndre Jordan/ Enes Kanter


Don't start that bs about projecting Giannis to be what he is now. Your team was iight, but championship? Naaa... you're delusional if you think it'd beat my team last year. You need to let this go dude.. been a year and you still can't get the salt out your mouth. Its pitiful.

As far as your squad now... you may think CJ could be a number 1 option, but you don't know that to be true 100%. We've seen #2's become #1's and fail to live up to the task before. Anyways, I put Kawhi on him... don't think he'd carry your squad past mine under those conditions.

What's done is done... you won't be hearing me cry about it for the next year+ tho.
