That has nothing to do with how Davis left NO, which was childish at best and pathetic at worst. Speaks volumes to the maturity and spoiled nature of today's generation of players.


He left a crappy franchise who made crappy decisions. Guess what? That’s the price of drafting a top 5 player. You better be good or theyre leaving. Stop blaming players for not wanting to ride out crappy franchises.


Supporting spoiled whiny crybaby herb players who ask to leave as soon as there is any sign of adversity is something that I'll never do. You do you, though.

Any sign? That team has been awful for years sans one good run. He gave them every chance to do well and you’re here complaining that he left after 7 years. Seven years. Obama got elected for his 2nd term the same year he got drafted.

He got a championship. You got your false narrative.

Enjoy.

The Pelicans had talent the entire time he was there. He couldn't lead and now he got his title without having to and just gets to be a statistical menace. I don't hate, I just know. He ain't that dude. He won't leave Lebron and carry a team to a title or even really further than 2nd round IMO.

Jrue Holiday
Tyreke Evans
Cousins
Randle- still talented
Many other talents

I would watch the Pelicans and say why does AD get treated like we should feel sorry for him. Way more talent than KG ever had. But again, I don't hate him for realizing this and hooking up with Lebron and now he's a champion. Sometimes you just gotta be self aware.

I don’t ‘hate’ either. I just call it like I see it.

I can't blame AD for leaving the Pelicans. The last straw was when they brought in Julius Randle and Elfrid Payton. We all saw what that was like.

As far as Davis leaving the Pelicans? My thought at the time was "it's about time". Dell Demps was the one GM that was more often than not worse than the Knicks bevvy of GM's. Brutal and outclassed. Davis gave the Pelicans more than enough time. Folks picking on him now is just butt hurt cause they hate Lebron James.

Well, that finally settles it

The 6ers absolutely made the right move letting Butler walk to sign Horford

I mean, as we all know, losing in the finals is much worse than not even making it in the first place, and now Butler has lost every finals he's been in where Horford has literally never lost in the finals

Shame to see Butler's legacy take such a hit, but it is what it is. He needs to get on Danny Green's level, man has 3 rings to Butler's 0.

Yikes!!!!!!!!!


he's 20....I will give him a pass. He's just a baby.

He had an amazing ECF to help get them here and that is special in its own right. But he has been putrid and overwhelmed in the finals. This does happen to kids looking great some times and horrible other times. I think people were overreacting a bit on his highes but he will carve out a good NBA career, he's too go of a shot maker to not. But he's got to be more effecient.


Lol I’m just Messing around but yeah I totally agree he’s going to be a player.

If I'm James Harden I'm causing a hissy fit and trying to force way out of Houston. Tyronn Lue? Seriously?
A new era or error?
