Golden State is 19th in 3pt %. If Oubre didn't take any threes they would be 4th
Yeah, hopefully he turns it on when some of the overachievers from deep (Bazemore, Lee, Mulder) see the law of averages hit

I've really enjoyed this years' Warriors. No, they aren't the behemoth of seasons past, but they're fun to watch. Last night Steph had literally the worst shooting night of his career thanks to the Raps blanketing him, and they still pulled it out.

Wiseman is going to be legit. The kid seems to "get it" and I've already noticed a lot of improvement from the first couple games to now

yeah they are long on the defensive side. seems like there is no easy layups, scrapy bunch on defensive side. they are just trying to figure out their roles and rotations. this group hasnt played together at all. i enjoy watching them play. with the nba package, i like watching the hawks, charlotte play as well.

Yeah, a lot of "sky is falling" after the two blowout losses in Brooklyn and Milwaukee to open the year, but no Draymond and really a cast of characters with a minimal camp/pre-season who hadn't figured things out yet. I still don't know if they're a playoff team in a deep West, but they'll be hanging around it all year I think. Depends if they can solve the lockdown-Steph defenses or not

What is going on in Toronto? Hard to believe Ibaka and Gasol are the difference between a 60 win team and a bottom tier team. I don't buy it.

It's the same core.

- Age
- Shooting too many 3s and not making enough
- Getting bodied on the boards
- Too many fouls

While Boucher's improvements are nice, the loss of Ibaka and Gasol without an adequate interior presence is pretty clear.

Yeah, I mean Toronto is a fringe East playoff team (I think 538 had them 5th in the East). Wins against the Clips and Blazers were nice though. Another solid barometer game tomorrow (if it happens), hosting the Pacers.

Raps played hardball trying to save some money for Giannis in UFa and it backfired. They thought they could get both Gasol and Ibaka so they lowballed Serge but the rumor was he hated coming off the bench so that was a failure.

Lowry older. The core isn’t playing well. FVV got paid so he’s no longer underrated. Pascal has been absolutely awful.

Just a lot of shit. But still have a title so can’t take that away

At the same moment the Nets were tipping off last night, Kyrie was spotted on a Zoom call for some meeting to support a District Attorney in Manhatten.

Harden takes no blame for the Rockets sucking and throws his entire team under the bus last night.


Man, I love the NBA.

Looks like Harden will be moved soon. He's staying away from the team it seems until a deal is made.

Bulls and Mavs are at the half. Luka has 30/7/5 but Bulls up 15. Pretty much my dream scenario
