Triple double. Back in the days, Andre Blatche and Ricky Davis had to kill for that thing.

I remember when Iguodala recorded a triple double his rookie year against the Pistons and it felt like an incredible achievement. Now it happens almost every night of the season.

Yup.

The games feels uncompetitive and fake. Like watching entertainment wrestling

So this Horton Tucker (THT) guy is 6’4 but with a crazy 7’1 wingspan

I was planning to subscribe to cleaning the glass this season. But after all the garbage level competition i’m seeing and how frequent guys are missing games (leads to a lot of noise), i think im going to just sticking to nba.com stats and bkref.

Didn't you spend months complaining about the bubble? This is the tradeoff.

Months? Not months but months ago maybe.

Both this and bubble don’t look good.

I was listening to windhorst and he discussed about possibility of the players reaching herd immunity with his belief that there should be a lot of players having the antibodies already (i.e Durant and Harden), that should be the ideal situation.

Because i dont think we’d enjoy the playoffs if teams compete while missing their key players

Well the reason why it's notable that you were complaining about the bubble is because your complaints were based on the misinformed assumption that the alternative was business as usual and weren't accounting for the measures that the league would have to take to operate a league outside of a bubble. These are those measures.

The ideal situation is covid doesn't exist but it does so they're making the best of it. I have less than zero interest in getting into a discussion with you about the science but should go without saying that telling all players, coaches, staff, all of their families and so on to just press forward and that they'll get herd immunity eventually is not a viable strategy. The options are putting in measures to reduce the spread of the virus (whether that's a bubble, strict exposure rules or whatever) or cancelling basically two entire NBA seasons. It will hopefully change at some point but this is the world we have been and are living in.

If they resign Lonzo, he’s gotta be available right?

Nets now have Allen and Drummond. Those can't play together.
This means Cavs aren't taking Drummond back this summer?

I think so. It's close either way. The thing Dipo has over Caris is defense, but Caris is no defensive slouch. Caris is the better passer and far better creator, at the moment. The biggest drop-off for Dipo, post-injury, is how he looks with the ball in his hands. Just doesn't look like a guy that can get his own buckets consistently. Levert is lethal off the dribble.

Indy is scary right now.

Brogdon is a stealth MVP candidate.

Again, are we sure Bob Myers is good?


Well.. if we drafted based on fit than talent we could have been in a much better place right now. :lol:

Imagine drafting Booker or CJ instead of Okafor.

But seriously, hard to say. Not enough data. Specially given the recency bias of Myers building a championship team, a 73 win team and the most talented team in league history.

And Warriors is in a very weird place. They have to take into consideration fit because of the talent they have right now and the timeframe of Steph Curry at his career right now.
