Things that people called me crazy on but have been silenced:

- Ball will be a generational talent - now where are they at?
- Kobe won't win us 5 championships - now where are they at?
- I started a thread stating Ball would have a Lebron level impact in his rookie season on a team level - now where are they at?
- Ingram will have PG numbers next season(in partial because of Ball) - now where are they at?

They've all been silenced today, and they know what's coming. Rings. Lots of them. Tatum, Fox, all good players, but not on Ball's level in terms of team impact...not even close.

Ball's performance solidifies Paul George coming here next season. Lakers are going to quickly rise in the west in the next couple of years, and will soon be contenders most likely by year 2 with Ball.

No one has been silenced yet. And you're still spewing out nonsense.


I want to know who the Celtics version RingsDontLie is :lol: Does he believe that Marcus Smart is the best defensive guard of all time, and that Al Horford has Karl Malone-level impact?


Can't really call him the same version of RingsDontLie since he's not in the same mold of him. He's more of a delusional hater. Celtics fans know whom I'm talking about lol.

I believe Lonzo will be really good. He had one horrible game, then a triple-double, then an amazing second half. But we need to remember it's still summer league. I'd just like to see him put up those numbers against actual NBA players before we call him the next LeBron in terms of impact. I don't remember exactly what I said in that thread about predicting his numbers, but I totally see him avg 15,5 and 8 next year.

There can only be one version of RingsDontLie. You can't deny his delusional greatness.

Favorite Rookie has a Bad game: "Hey, it is just summer league. Player X had a bad summer league and went on to be an all-star."

Favorite Rookie has a Good game: "Future All-Star. Better then Hall of Fame player X. Transcendent generational talent."

It has been fun seeing the same posters going from one extreme to the other from game to game. Entertaining.

Lonzo will not average 15 points next year.

People are just hating on Lonzo because of his father and in some cases because he's a Laker. He's no Jason Kidd, but he might be an oversized Ernie DeGregorio, which would be a very entertaining player. Those Buffalo teams with Bob McAdoo, Randy Smith, Jim McMillan and DeGregorio could score like crazy. It was D'Antoni ball before there was D'Antoni.

Ignoring the ridiculously small sample size, those numbers aren't even right. Tatum is averaging 18.3/45%/8.8/1.5/1.3/0.4

inb4 someone says Vegas SL matters but Utah SL doesn't...

People are setting Tatum up for failure IMO

What he's done in SL honestly tells you a lot. Those contested long 2's have him looking real Rudy Gayesqe
