:D We still claim him as a "former Wizard", there are even a couple of threads for him buried on god-knows which page.
*Side-comment* Google used to make it very easy to find these old threads, not any more.

Minnesota - without Towns - upsets Brooklyn. Dieng seem rejuvenated with Towns on the shelf. And Towns is making sounds that he wants to be traded. Interesting.

People really jumped the gun on assuming Chris Paul was going downhill fast. His numbers are slightly better this season than his career averages - other than assists - which is explainable because OKC starts a natural PG with him - SGA. He's leading OKC to a possible playoff run.

It was cool to see Westbrook’s reception at OKC last night. Great bond between an outstanding fan base and a player who gave it his all night after night.

With the Knicks having 10 PF's and having some idea that Giannis might try to score some, they still couldn't come close to containing him.

Too bad you need bball IQ combined with size, strength and quickness to slow Giannis (there is no stopping him). Having a bunch of PFs means nothing if you have Mitchell Robinson instead of Embiid or Horford or Marc Gasol.

It's just scary how good Luka Doncic is at his age:



He does this stuff every single night.

Watching Sixers Lakers now.

Any debate about Simmons vs Beal is just crazy,

It’s Simmons and it’s not even close.

Gotta trade Wall too because Simmons needs the ball in his hands. But surround Simmons with shooters and wow.

He just makes right decisions.

Yup. Every game he plays without Embiid just boosts his trade value and makes it that much harder to trade for him. We need Embiid back pronto, and we need Beal to play the rest of the season like he has played he last 5 games

Not a major player, but odd that Denzell Valentine seems to have fallen out of favor with the Bulls. Statistically, he was having by far his best season - even getting 2.0 steals and 0.6 blocks per 36 minutes. And you know the guy can shoot and pass. Yeah, he's not much of an athlete, but gotta figure there should be some demand for him from smarter teams.
