Around The NBA - Week 5 

Post#1 » by Capn'O » Mon Nov 13, 2017 5:08 am

I have Kawhi and Gobert on my fantasy team and I'm mad about it. On the plus side, it's great to look forward to Knick games again!

OK-C BBW (6-7) vs Dallas BBQ (2-12)
In football, this is special. In basketball, it's nothing. No Melo, no problems. Dennis Smith Jr meets a real PG and gets owned.

Deeeeetroit I-94 Pot Holes (10-3) vs Miami cHeat (6-7)
This team is real. The bench is developing rapidly, led by Kennard. If Cavs don't correct their problems, A Pistons/Celtics ECF is a definitive possibility.

Boston C+ (12-2) vs Toronto Purple Barneys (7-5)
Eureka! Boston has found a way to make Horford useful again. 12th straight win.

GSW (Magic gets exposed by 20 or 30)
76ers (Trust the process)
Bucks (Giannis dunks on Gasol, Middleton exposes Chandler Parsons and his overrated ass contract)
Pelicans (Boogie gets another easy 30+10 game against bum big men)
Cavs (dont @ me)
Lakers (suns suck balls and Lonzo gets nice line again against these no defense bums)
Nuggets ( Blazers needs to trade their scrubs and picks for something decent)
Wolves
Wizards

That country really sucks at basketball if scrubs like Jennings and old Scola can put up these type of numbers.

They would be average role players in Euroleague, but i guess China pays more. Weak ass competition.

Weak, yes but every now and then, a Yao Ming comes out who was AWESOME...and I loved his love letter to Steve Francis who showed him so much kindness and acceptance.

Memphis BBQ (7-6) vs Milwaukee IPA (7-6): No answer for Giannis Michaels. Chandler Parsons took only 2 shots in 21 mins and I can see him in a trade with a draft pick for Hernangomez.

LeBron has gone from diva to fkn moronic:

Here's what he said on Bleacher Report on the return of Isaiah Thomas:

It's been a while since I've had that clear-cut guy who can get guys involved but also score at the same time. But it's fine.


Full story here: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2744177-im-still-in-win-mode-why-lebron-is-unstoppable-but-the-cavs-are-in-trouble

He had THAT guy last season, but because he's the coach/GM/President/Mayor/Governor of Ohio, Irving was in his right to demand a trade from that diva punk bitch.

Watching all these exciting rookies and I can think about is how do we possibly trade for a late lottery pick this year. It would have to be to a team who's on the fringe and could really use one of our rotation guys while we take back a bad contract.

Something like Lee for Asik Ajinca top 5 protected pick.
