    Heh.

    Will say though that Ntilikina is gonna be great. Wanted him bad for the Heat. Frank and KP are an awesome core to build around, two-way studs.

    If he stays healthy, Ben Simmons has ROY locked up and it’s really not even close...

    If they gave a defensive rookie of the year like the NFL, Fin-O's new boy Frank Ntilikina would run away with it. Legit flashes of Kawhi on defense, man, woooo he's good.

    Meanwhile the HEAT playing well against MIN. Why the hell aren't the TWolves, like, good? Feel like Spo with their roster... :chuckle:

    If Willy HermanwillheeverbgoodEZ would come around this would be a decent young roster.

    If Hornaturd would play him instead of that sloth Kanter, then he could show how good he is...again. He’s already better then Kanter.

    Don’t say it too loud, Knicks will trade them for some overpriced vet. It’s just a Knicks thing to do :(

    I'm gonna go ahead and revise my ROY vote to upgrade Simmons from dark horse to winner. Also, Nurkic has regressed, so I'm just going to cheat and change my vote for MIP to Oladipo.

    Clint Capela FT% improvement the last 4 years:
    17%
    38%
    53%
    78% this year.
    Whenever CP3 gets back, I need for Capela to get more shot attempts. He's also leading the league in FG% with over 70%. John Lucas has him ready.

    Ben Simmons is on a whole different level then these other rookies... with all due respect, he is just much better and looks like a vet out there

    Not sure it's sustainable, but this Knicks offense has looked nice.

    Bron gonna Bron.

    Like this OKC team a lot.

    First 10 games are done. Finished 7-3.
    CP3 missing 9.5 games
    NeNe missing 3 games
    Ariza missing 2 games
    Gordon missing 1 game

    Not too shabby considering 4 of our top 8 players have missed games. Makes me appreciate Harden for never missing games. It's going to be fun when this team is whole.

    Nurkic just had a really good game and looked more like his performances last year when he was traded. I wouldn't count him out for MIP quite yet. Well I assume from the context you predicted he would win MIP

    Kuzma is so good. I really like Swanigan but I wish we would have drafted Kuzma over Swanigan

    I did. He looked really good after that trade.

    Kuzma is the best rookie on that team. They need to find a way for him to start. I'm hoping Magic makes his bed with Lonzo and becomes willing to part ways with him. He was crazy enough to get rid of Russell.

    Jack has done really well as a pass first PG. I like the defensive mentality he’s brought. He’s better then Sessions by a healthy margin. And Ntilikina is going to be a stud.

    I was listening to Jazz coach, Quin Snyder, before their game against the Rockets. He said the game plan is to keep Harden contained and run him off the 3 point line.

    Harden has proceeded to drop 53 points (7-7 from three) and 13 assists against the #3 defense in the NBA. IT IS ONLY THE 3rd QUARTER...LMAO.

    Rockets up by 31 points.
    8-3. Best in the Wild West.

    Time to watch the Phins

    Beastzingis with a career high 40 8 rebound and 6 blocks went ham scoring 15 points in a row at one point. And Ntilikina with 10 and 7 dimes in his best game as a knick. NYK were down 19 with under 2 minutes to go in the 3rd...raise your hand if you thought they’d win the game. Good win.

    Poor Melo. He should have stayed in NY.

    He gets ejected. The super team loses again. They're under .500.

    Why can't the fraud mvp get this team winning? Kyrie and Lillard exposed him in back-to-back games. I mean, they went offfff. I thought people told me he was this great defender.

    I want to give you **** for being such a rockets homer, but you’re a dolphins and Michigan fan so the rockets are all you have to be excited about sports wise. I’d be stoked, too.

    Ya gotta find joy somewhere. They're the only competent team I've had for the last 15-20 years. Hell, it's hard for me to even watch a Dolphins' game.

    Dude, dolphins football is so boring to watch right now, especially since I wisely didn’t draft any dolphins players. I’m having more fun flipping thru games following my fantasy players.

    My longhorns are, well, longhorns right now. Canes are fun as **** to watch though.
