Golden State Warriors (20-6) defeat the Charlotte Hornets (9-14): Kevin Durant decides to actually play so the ticket holders who paid serious money to see a craptastic franchise with a crazy owner luck out and draft one of the 10 best guards in the history of the game, who attracted one of the biggest game changing FA signings.



New Orleans (13-12) defeat Denver Nuggets (13-11): Since reuniting Rondo with Boogie Cousins, the Pelicans have been dancing to,
Ease on down the Road. Mudiay is starting to round into his role as a bench guy, despite a -18 (+/- rating).

Follow up question, are we going to hear about him even through retirement?

Asking for a friend... who isn't a big, big Melo fan, but doesn't hate him, and doesn't need to incessantly post about him. Just hates having to see his name at least every 3 posts on every thread.

Iverson retired at 34, i'm guessing 35-37 ish for Melo.

Meanwhile in Minny - apparently Thibs is playing dudes close to 40 mpg again.

NBA coaches are a strange and stubborn breed.

You mean Thibs is still an offensive dullard who runs his players into the ground?

Yeah it's really odd. He had all the tools to be a good defender and was legitimately a good one at Kentucky. Either he just doesn't care on that end or the NBA game just moves too fast for him... It's weird for sure. It's what makes KP better than him currently.

Towns will leave if this continues but ultimately the team will fire Thibs to appease Towns and keep him around long-term.

If Tim Duncan could defend, then KAT can defend. Maybe he just doesn't care.

THE AGE OF JUNIORS UPON US ITS TIME TO CHOOSE EVOLUTION OVER EXTINCTION







I thought he was just a random dunking scrub but last year I was watching lot of the tank rivals end of season games and he looked like nice prospect in transition with his length and quickness, whoever better than Horny to rebeast his outside shooting? If that happens you get yourself a cool prospect for free

Good for Jah. Brooklyn should be able to develop him and give him the tools to be successful. That defense though with him and Russell....
