    I would rather my team with 1 all-star beat the scrubs instead of losing by 30 with having 4 all-stars.

    Boy, u bandwagon GSW fans are so hilarious.

    A single player scoring 60 pts is indicative of a flawed team. Especially if its 60 pts by necessity and not just hot hand.

    I see the rockets ending up like the clippers. Maybe CP3 stays after a 1st or 2nd round exit this year, maybe he bolts for Lebron. Next is Harden. After continuously getting bounced early from the playoffs, and realizing he hasn’t made the finals since the future MVP Russell Westbrook carried him there, he will jet out of there. But if my instincts on Harden are correct, and he doesn’t care about a ring but cares about checks and personal stats, he’ll stay in Houston and get bounced in the 2nd round as long as his heart desires.

    LeBron scored 61 against the Bobcats. It was 2014.

    Remember what happened in the finals that year? Not that the Rockets have any shot at making the finals..

    Funny. This would be an OK point if the Rockets were regular season champs.. They still have made up no ground on the coasting Warriors.

    It took a historic performance to eek out a game in the last 60 seconds against an abominable Magic team.

    Wow. What an accomplishment. So when the Heat beat him next time and he'
    . 500, is he then...bad?

    Just saying, Harden is good, but he doesn'
    Beat up anything over here.

    Relax on the self hate. Heat are just fine. They play hard, and inching back to their elite defense (7th, a stone' throw away from 4th in Def. Eff.) Enjoy that you root for a team that entertains and wins while rebuilding.

    And I've never referred to a 7 point win as a beat down. I understand how comically low your qualifiers are but you are really bumming me out. BTW we are 2 and 1 against the Magic this season. Scoreboard!

    I understand this, I love the organization I root for. But we are not a contender this year. And I still believe our roster is bottom of the barrel but of course Spo is a genius.

    I hated GS until I started reading your embarrassing
    *** guzzling fandom of Houston. I would have rooted for any team besides GS and CLE before this year. Having to look at "Fraud MVP" in every post of yours has led me to root for them.

    I’ll enjoy a 2nd round series this year and a fight for the ECFs. The fact that we’re about to be the 3rd seed without one all star is amazing. Every year Spo is getting better. He’s our most important asset right now.

    So with Kevin Love and John Wall out for around 2 months each, there's no reason Miami shouldn't be able to claim and retain the 3rd seed. A first round match-up against Milwaukee is potentially dangerous based on how dominant Giannis can be, but we've owned them this year. No guarantee Toronto beats us in a 7 game series either. The ECF is a real possibility depending on the final seeding.

    Still remember his rookie version documentary Inside the Heat made for him years ago. This guy had work ethic like a mother****er. He was definitely a Heat guy, didnt take his opportunity for granted. May have not been better than average but when you had to work as hard as he did and come out of it with 14 years in the NBA (average is 4.5), then your career was a success.

    What move do you expect because i dont see spoelstra gutting this team and destroy their chemistry.

    There is only one guy they are entertaining and that is Whiteside, and theyre not going to trade him for garbage.

    Circles back around to the need for shooting. FT shooting and 3-point shooting are very much linked. The best at both tend to be the same players. If LA is serious about it, I'd look at Lou Williams. Instant offense off the bench. I'd try make it a package with Teodosic to finally bring in the backup true PG that sports24/7 wants. He's a really good passer and shoots a reasonable 34% from 3. I'd make the move for Whiteside + Winslow (cheap 2-year deal, can be paired with Beverly for lock-down defense) if they were willing. Unfortunately, the Clippers are probably one of the teams that wouldn't want Whiteside.

    Rumors have it that LeBron would be open to signing with Warriors.
    .....
    ....
    LMAO

    What a clown!!!! LMAO

    The NBA would suck completely and I would be done watching for a good duration of time.....

    Funny how LeBron will be known as the biggest loser of all time doing nothing but hopping on coattails and buying himself players.

    LeBron has one of the most pathetic personality/character.... it’s similar to Ronda Rousey.
     
  35. CaribPhin

    CaribPhin Guest

    One guy from ESPN wrote an article and he doesn't actually say he's open to signing, just that LeBron is willing to listen if they pitch to him. Would you turn down a job pitch from a really good company that wanted you?

    So the guy goes to CLE, runs that team into the ground with his horrible GM skills and leaves the cupboard dry and will sign on with the best team I have ever seen because he can’t beat em and his ego is so huge that he actually thinks this will help his legacy... And we are supposed to say that’s cool? Nah sorry lol NBA will be ruined due to large EGO.

    Forget the GOAT discussions.

    I don’t like Dan Gilbert either but if LeBron does end up signing with GSW, I won’t like the NBA either. (Pretty much all my friends agree)

    In other news, Pels made a move for Mirotic, trading away three players (Omer Asik, Tony Allen, Jameer Nelson), a second round pick, and the right to swap seconds in 2021. Honestly, the big win here is getting rid of Asik's contract. Mirotic would have been a great player to have for spacing when Boogie was still healthy. I watched about 10 minutes of that Pelicans game against LAC, and couldn't believe how bad they can be on offense at times. Jameer Nelson, Rajon Rondo, Tony Allen and Omer Asik on the same team was really ridiculous honestly.
