Missing CP3 for two of their losses and Harden tonight would leave me disagreeing. They are 1-1 at full strength and that loss was to NOLA who has looked very good early. If OKC were 0-4 with Russ having only played the Boston game I might agree. That Sacramento game gives OKC the edge.

Knicks did really well in the draft, Knox, Robinson and this Dotson kid is really good.

I love everything about the nets front office and coaching staff. They've acquired more with less than any team over the last couple of years.
“If you're getting stops and you're making threes and the other team's not scoring, that's when you're going to see a huge point difference there,” coach Billy Donovan said.

We need Otto Porter and he needs saved from Washington. How do we make this happen?

It’s just a two year MLE deal with player option. If he gets hurt, maybe it’s a possibility.

I won't lie... I've low key rocked with Klay for a minute.
Steph and Kevin don't get me hyped the way he does when he goes off.

If there had to be any player in the league that had to devastate this team in those 2016 playoffs, I take solace that he was the one to do it.

Klay does seem pretty cool, and I do respect Curry's game too. Dray is a guy who I'd love if he were on a team I liked. Cupcake nah.

Also low key the Kings don't totally suck

Josh Richardson isn’t a role player anymore.

Okogie already better than Wiggins.

I was told he'd be fine when he got away from Westbrook.

They should have kept Ryan Anderson and let Melo go to LAL. Of course, I was making the argument over a year ago that OKC should have facilitated Melo to Houston and taken Ryan Anderson. You can also say that part of Houston's problem is they have only had CP3 and Harden together for two games this year. If I were Houston I'd be trying to get Corey Brewer to sign and cut Melo. Melo might die from a broken ego.
