The clippers are down 62-18 to the mavs right now. This is why I can’t believe in them.

How do you possibly defend a lineup of kyrie/dinwiddie/harris/durant/nondescriptcenter?
Or if they remove the center and add levert?

Unexpected victories by the Hornets and Knicks always great to see, Cavs starting 3-0 and they look pretty decent so far.

Watching the Warriors and Draymond can't get back soon enough. The collective basketball IQ of every non-Steph player is incredibly sub-par, getting a fake first for Oubre doesn't look too bad at this point. Worried if Steph gets so much as a tweaked ankle they'll find a way to hold him out for 4 months.

Feel free to ignore, but I'm not sure I follow your thinking. In what way is curry like what the media pretends russ is?

Can't carry a team, overrated because of the 'unique' stat line he provides, needs better players around him.

Tbf I like curry, he's a great player. So is russ. one shouldn't be the golden boy while the other gets **** on due to team success.

If you have a garbage team and need to win games, Westbrook is definitely a better choice over Curry (even old Westbrook with his bad knees).

Curry is a better fit in a lot of good teams though
