Supposedly they said something along the lines of hoping his son dies in a car wreck. And then doing the crying motion on top of it.

If true, **** people like that.

The LOLakers losing in triple overtime to the Kings definitely eases some of the frustration over our bad loss to the Spurs...man, those guys CANNOT defend.

Don’t like Lebron but he has every right to get pissed at comments like this.
It’s a game of basketball for f*** sake, why start getting personal like that ? :nonono:

You guys noticing a pattern?

Russell Westbrook was with Washington last season and the Wiz were a crappy team.

This season Westbrook goes to LA and the Lakers end up becoming a crappy team.

Westbrook is a triple-double machine, right?

So why is it that everywhere he goes the team ends up becoming a crappy team?

That's why I keep saying, stats don't tell the whole story.

There are only 2 players in NBA history to average a triple-double, Russ and the Big O.

That's how hard it is to average a triple-double in the NBA.

But averaging a triple-double doesn't mean it's automatic you win a lot of games.

Watching the Suns vs Nets game and it just **** sucks watching how aggressive Phoenix came out to play the game in the first quarter. They are currently up by 15 at the end of the first but Booker was super aggressive looking to score. He scored 12 of their first 17. The Nets looked a bit uncomfortable so they are setting the tone right now. Things could obviously change because KD and Harden are great but that’s how you are supposed to start a game.

Meanwhile look at this trash Celtics team and how they start games. Lazy, no effort, taking turns shooting. Nobody moving or cutting, bricking shot as if they didn’t even shoot during warm ups. It’s frustrating watching the Celtics not play as hard as other teams like they used to in the past. I believe the Celtics do have talent but they kill them selves especially in the first and 4th quarters

Said it before and I'll say it again, Brad Stevens gets an A++++++++++++ for moving Kemba Walker when he did.

hearing this doesn't make me feel better.. I screamed all last season.. Get Walker out of the lineup.. make him a 6th man (or less) maybe he could get hot off the bench, if Not sit him... I got back so much flack.. Stevens kept starting him and kept letting Kemba finish games..

GM Brad Stevens did what Coach Stevens refused to do..

2020-21 Celtics didn't have even a Burks or Quickley to turn to. Payton Pritchard, a guy who should not start in the G-League, played the 6th most minutes for us (and only 100 mins fewer than Kemba). That's how thinly stretched our roster was last season.

Dude, get over yourself. Pritchard has his limitations, but his shooting alone warrants a role in the NBA. He showed in the summer league what he does against G-League talent.

Yeah any NBA team could use a .233 shooter from the three on low volume. We sure are lucky to have Payton Pritchard making a little under half a three pointer for us every game rather than doing that against us.

Kind of sad news honestly. Feel bad Kemba isn't going out on his own terms and that this is happening in his hometown.

He struggled for most of his time in Boston but is by all accounts an awesome human being and teammate.

Can you imagine OKC getting more assets to take Kemba's contract? :lol: :lol:

Anything is possible in the NBA.

Absolutely, if something can be simultaneously low key and an enormously good move, this was it. Al is a zillion times more productive than Kemba at this point.

The NBA should create an expansion team constituted of players who are out of rotation and away for personal reasons.

Kemba
Kyrie
Dragic
Wall
Griffin
Simmons

Who else?
