That worries me. He’s great in the playoffs - I just worry about jt and brown getting any bad habits.

Habits such as not shrinking in big moments, or playing good defense and offense in crunch time, or winning championships? Which is it?

I'd like to have him back as our analytics guy and assistant GM.
At least we drafted better when he was on board.

I hate Harden's style of play 'cos he promotes more ball-watching than any player other than Kyrie maybe. I'm already pissed at the lack of player movement in our offense. There's a fear in me that Tatum might turn into a catch-and-shoot player and his ceiling becomes Trevor Ariza lol.

More like not appreciating the grind of getting better every game as a 24 year old. The habit of taking the regular season seriously so we can get home court advantage and wouldn’t have to play a game 7 in Toronto. The habit of not picking and choosing your spots. The habit of not just trying to turn it on and off but staying aggressive for an 82 game schedule.

Those habits that brown and Tatum need to continue to work on. Just those little things......ya know nothing big or anything :roll:

Harden is probably the worst "superstar" in the league to try to build around. Or Luka. Both ball-dominant massive usage guards.

Best thing I read today Gary Payton wants to be on a bench coaching, make this happen.

I'd rather have Brett Brown or Chauncey Billups, either of whom has more championship experience than Payton.

I'm not one to read too much into social media posts (I lie but whatever)... I think this means Tatum is accepting the max extension offer from the Celtics. GO GET THAT BAG, JT! And please don't leave us.

Probably.

I'm too high to think about which movie is better. I'd start thinking and forget why I was thinking about them and end up trying to watching them, then I'll fall asleep while deciding which one to watch first because I like one better and I'll have to try to remember which one so I won't be upset I didn't watch the right one first, even though I'm never going to get around to start watching them. Speaking of money and movies, I think I like Mo Money more than both. Remember Money Train? Good times the 90s/early 2k! I'll stop now. :o :crazy:

Should be at least 3rd! We will win either way! I said what I said! No more bubble, lets see these guys (other teams) with real challenges to deal with outside of game time and see if they still hold up in the playoffs! Traveling/flying, partying, women, family, gambling and the ability to spend money are all distractions they didn't have in the bubble! Home court should matter again too! Our guys have made it to the ECF and minutes from the Finals (against LBJ) in and outside the bubble!


Can't wait for next season!!!

With Tatum’s rise I really only see the Lakers as the team we’d probably lose too.
Too much drama going on at the Clippers. Steph & Klay are not only getting older but Klay just came off a pretty significant injury. KD’s coming off a career threatening injury & you’ve got the problems surrounding Kyrie. Unless they makes some changes, the Bucks will just get exposed again.

Lakers are the only team that worries me.
