Saw this happen live, and it looked like a torn ACL. My second thought was that I wonder if they regret not giving up more for Lowry. Oladipo is Brandon Roy 2.0 and they should have known that.

riley's calculation at trade deadline time was that they would get a legit shot at lowry in the offseason if they renounced oladipo. we'll see. they might have to renounce robinson as well to make a play at him.


I believe Riley is targeting Kawhi and Lowry

Drummond show, I hope we take a real look at him in the summer time. His easy cheap baskets around the bucket and vertically is something definitely missing from our team

He looked great vs. Suns the other night, so did George.

They don't talk about Kawhi much because of his low-key manner and avoidance of social media. The opposite of Lebron who wants a headline every day, even when injured he has to tweet in the middle of the night how much he misses playing.

OK, but Masai's not gonna pay Drummond more than JV.

Not going to lie. The Lakers beating the Nets vexed me.

Drummond baited him into taking the most inefficient shot in bball!!!!

Yikes, that Jamal Murray injury looked bad. Hopefully nothing serious.

This makes sense. Stay away from Trent. :nod:


I feel like him and Lonzo as PG's will be in higher demand than Trent. :nod:

It's crazy that FVV was like the top FA last off-season.

Curry is balling, his stats this month are unreal. He’s playing with a bunch of scrubs too, that team is battling for last place without him

According to the program guide, Warriors Celtics is supposed to be playing on Sportsnet yet all I see is curling. Terrible station as usual.

I was posting during the first quarter of the game against the Warriors where there were down big and playing horribly. They eventually got it together and won.

I am so done with New Orleans. I was watching them all year expecting great things (and Zion and Ingram have delivered) but their guard play is such a joke. Eric Bledsoe should have been dumped for a competent PG.

Yesterday they had the Knicks down, up by 3 with about 6 seconds left and they forget to foul (twice). Bledsoe misses the opportunity to foul Rose on the drive and Ball helps off the drive after Bled get beat leaving Bullock open for a corner three to tie the game. Just the dumbest team in the NBA.
