Talk about timing haha

Didn't expect the "decision" to come out that quick. Now time for Leonard or Cousins to join him.

It is all planned. 3 more rings with the Lakers and then a final career contract and a 7th ring around 40yo with... the Bulls.
MJ and Kobe both destroyed for good in the GOAT discussion that way.
I'm just trolling and making this up of course, but gosh, how glorious would that be!!!

at first glance, Cousins doesn't seem like a good fit for GSW .. but, GSW being in the West, they're already one of the "tough teams", with Draymond etc.. Now with Cousins, more bruising. Seems like an elite West AND elite East team now. kinda nuts.

hoping Cousins is healthy.

just want to see the West go nuclear.. seems like it's a nuclear arms race in the West. this is fun shit. LMAO.

btw.. Lonzo won't last in LA. I expect he'll be gone soon tbh.. His dad is just too much for LEBRON.

They need a nice backup PG now..

rondo can't shoot though. what'll happen when lebron dribbles for 18 seconds, drives, then kicks it to him?

also re: boogie, GSW could be perfect. he can spend the first 40-50 games rehabbing, the last 30-40 games playing his way into shape and cohesion with the team, and then turn them into a shapeshifting monster in the playoffs.

I think the biggest Boogie bonus is that he can shoot threes now. If he's not going to be featured much on offense (which you would presume), they might just have him camped on the 3pt line, and he can rebound everything on defense - basically Javale McThree. Ridiculous that the GSW could somehow add to their talent this summer.....madness.

I also could see the Lakers shipping Lonzo+Ingram/Kuzma for Kawhi Leonard soon. They have been really high on Lonzo (who is quite good despite his bad shooting), but LeBron changes everything.

can't believe raps gave up DeRozan for Kawhi..

such a weird trade. DeRozan seemed like a TOR-lifer, and I mean he definitely seemed worthy of it. He always showed up in the playoffs for raps as well.

Kawhi will be out of there after next year.. wtf?

awful trade.

This is definitely the weirdest move I've seen anyone make. Just did not make sense.

I do think that once he gets over the initial shock, DeRozan should be happy to play under Pop. As someone who regularly struggles on the big stage this could be a good move for him. The downside is that he's now in the West with Lebron haha

right but that's the thing... no more LEBRON in the East.. and they trade him now? what? they have a chance to finally get out of the playoffs in the East (though philly is strong) and onto the NBA finals, and they trade him now? wtf? and the trade doesn't actually make their team better, nor does it set them up for the future (afaics). just an absolute garbage move IMHO.

this is a great reason why I support athletes, not teams and the team owners/management :D

I was listening to a few guys over the weekend and it seems TOR were going to rebuild and this will basically blow the team up. If you keep Kawaii that's a win. If you trade for him next season and get lots of goods in return that's also a win. I don't think Toronto were ever going to beat Boston anyway so maybe not a bad move. Shit way to deal with it but the strategy seems sound.

IMHO, they just needed a few more pieces to the existing squad.. veteran team, knows how to play well together, with a renewed fire now that LEBRON is in the West.. guaranteed better chances to make a run at the finals. Instead, they just set themselves back. I just don't see it. I don't think it'll work out well, at all. Definitely a blow up move.... but one that they won't recover from for quite some time, is my prediction.

I think Lonzo will be toast with this new squad. It's really going to expose him. Don't expect him to be a Laker for too long.

2017 draft class was really decent.. I'd have picked alot of other athletes before picking Lonzo, that's for sure.

demarr is a great goto player, but kawahi is a once in a generation type player.... how many 6'7 guards are there that has bigger hands than MJ and bigger wingspan than scottie pippen? and has skills, can shoot from anywhere on the court....

its a risk that toronto had to take...
Title: Re: NBA 2018 - 2019 Season
Post by: adarqui on July 28, 2018, 03:51:59 pm
I dno.

I like Kawhi, but I wouldn't even put him on DeRozan's level (yet). DeRozan has proven himself to be able to carry a team, consistently, year after year. Kawhi has not. Kawhi had alot of help early on in his career, an incredible team/organization/coach. Even then, his abilities weren't mindblowing. He hasn't been "the leader" for too many years, only like 2?

Without Lebron in the East, do you go with the question-mark, or do you guy with the sure thing? Do you go with Kawhi who will be a free agent after 1 year (I think?) and will undoubtedly leave, or do you go with the lifer? Do you go with the guy who is coming off a major injury (missed basically all of last season), or do you go with the guy who has proven durable his whole career?

No brainer for me -> DeRozan.

To me, it still makes absolutely no sense.

Also, look at how mad DeRozan has been following the trade. This guy was committed to Toronto. He'd have given everything to get them to the finals, year after year. Kawhi was pretty much good riddance to the Spurs..

DeRozan 100%

Yeah the Aus Olympic team would fair well against most NBA teams. The NBA has a 101.9 million dollar salary cap. The NBL has a 1.1 million salary cap so players are literally getting paid 100x more in the NBA, which is why it's the best comp in the world.

The Sydney Kings were close being down 6 points against the Clippers in the 4th quarter. In the end Clippers pulled away and won 110-91. Aside from the salaries the biggest difference is the size of the players. The commentator in the Clippers V Kings game repeatedly said that "if only Jerome Randle was a few inches taller he'd definitely be in the NBA" (Randle is 5'9 and scored 25 points). In comparison the PG for the Clippers was 6'5 with a 7'0 wingspan. The forwards are just soo much more athletic and dominant at the NBA level as well. Sydney did okay in the forwards but having Bogut playing for them really helped.

NBA Pre-Season Game.

Phoenix Suns v New Zealand Breakers (NBL) team.

The margin of the game was always around 10-15 points (it blew out to 19 at one stage) but it become closer in the 4th quarter quarter with the Suns winning by 5 points.
Final score Suns 91 Defeated Breakers 86.

One of my favourite moments was when Jarrad Weeks (6'1 back up PG for the breakers) made a 2 handed slam dunk at the end of the 3rd. Prior to the dunk he missed a couple of free throws so the commentators were saying "if he keeps that up he'll be agent O" then when he made the dunk they were like " I gues he is Agent 97" hahaha.

I wish I could go to the games but all of the pre-season games were held in the USA! There were 7 NBA v NBL games in total but they've all finished now. If NBA teams ever come to my city I'll definitely go the games.

I'll be going to a few 36ers game this season though. That was the first time I got to see my team play since last season.   The team looks strong this year despite losing our best player Mitch Creek to the Brooklyn Nets.

"“I’ve gone from being the last player picked on an NBL roster to MVP of the Adelaide 36ers. Now, I’m close to being on an NBA roster,” Creek wrote.

“The NBA is more than just basketball. That’s why so many people are spat out the other end. Only the best make it. I’m doing everything I can to be among them".

Ingram is such a moron. also, he kinda sucks.

Look at how much respect people have for Lebron tho, he just comes in there bearhugs people and they chill.

I like Harden's response.. I mean doesn't look like he wants to fight at all. Nice.

There's a comment on the vid: "Lol Look at mayweather at 1:14".. lmfao, good eye. mayweather enjoying it thoroughly.

ya this was just a small scrap, pacers/pistons was tragic, it was like a "sports disaster/attack", ie you can't really forget where you were when you saw it or heard about it etc.

i was working at a gas station in college, night shift. had the radio on, espn radio or something.. then they went on about it. couldn't believe it. the reporting on it was "so dark and grim". got home, watched the recap on tv, couldn't believe it.

rondo 100000000% purposely spit on him. 10000000000000%. but the lakers even try to dispute it lol, why bother


this def could have turned into basketbrawl if the palace inicdent didnt precede it. rondo should have gotten 10 game suspension, ingram 5, cp3 , 2

rondo is a goon, if this happened elswhere someone could end up dead

im starting to lose respect for lebron, not because he's getting older or not good still, but at the sheer amount of legit 3 step layups and drives he's attempting, clear travels.... the fact that he is ATEMPTING THEM.... come on lebron, true ballers don't make that footwork when going to the hoop....

100% at Rondo deserving an enormous suspension.

spitting on someone is on another level imho, that's vile shit. I'd put it on the level (or probably worse) of a sucker punch/sucker elbow etc.

a square up fight doesn't bug me much, people are going to get heated and eventually throw hands, that usually gets broken up quickly. it deserves a suspension obviously, but at least it isn't VILE AS FU*K.

being a "rough team" is fine.. but spitting, squaring up on refs/just being violent.. i seriously doubt lebron wants to be apart of that.. he needs to get his squad in check.



and to add to that, recent:

tbh, stuff like this helped me leave basketball alot easier (long ago). so much dirty shit out there in street games, leagues etc. it's a shame.

what rondo did was even dirtier than the grayson allen tripping temper tantrum. rondo was just str8 wicked insane..... he was so furious at cp3 that he just didnt bother talkin shit (which he does a lot) but he didnt want to throw a punch 1st either cause he knew that would cause him instant suspension, so he did a disguised spit. then he knew cp was going to react so he let cp do something so he can retaliate, when cp's poke hurt his eye he lashed out asap, but during the poke he purposely let it happen so everyone can see oh cp started it, rondo is insane in the head period..... hes done a bunch of other weird shit in the past

anyone defending rondo is either semi retarded or dislikes cp3 or friends with rondo.

some respect? he straight-up admitted to having sex with an incapacitated woman without her consent or even any reason to think she might consent under other circumstances. the fact that he doesn't seem to understand what he did doesn't absolve him or make it any better, it just means he's a fucking idiot in addition to being a rapist.

yea that transcript is damning as fuck.

he admits to being a rapist. it's a "different kind of rape", i mean she wasn't fighting back - she was incapable. maybe that's why it doesn't get as much attention, even though it should, because that situation happens very often.

There's 3 sides to every story. His side, her side and the truth.

https://mic.com/articles/156587/everything-we-know-about-the-derrick-rose-rape-trial-so-far#.gD2gYROAN

From his side she's a gold digger and from her side he's a rapist. She previously dated Rose and they were exchanging texts until 2:09am of the night in question until he turned up. Hours before that she was literally at his house sucking his dick. She says they broke in but she says she can't remember sending text messages. For all we know she let them in...

her motivation and their history together are irrelevant. he admitted to having sex with her without her consent. that is rape.

IF SOMEONE DOES NOT WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU, AND YOU DO IT ANYWAY, YOU HAVE RAPED THAT PERSON. SEX WITHOUT CONSENT IS THE DEFINITION OF RAPE.

saying she's a gold-digger is just defensive character assassination, like cops talking about a black kid's history of petty crimes after they've murdered them. it's beside the point.

she could be an angel, she could be a piece of shit. either way, derrick rose and his buddies fucked her without her consent. they should go to prison.

Technically it is rape, LBSS is right. they committed a serious crime. the thing is though i bet that scenario has come up several times where the woman was ok with it afterwards so they're so skewed they dont even know what is rape and what is consent anymore.

Please let's not derail this thread further, NBA is serious business this year, its popularity gaining for some reason.....

How about Giannis this year, the dudes been deadlifting 400 lb in the summer and its showing. He can almost dunk whenever he wants now especially with the rules favoring offensive players.

He literally doesn't need to shoot layups, he either assists to player or dunks it...so insane

Everyone besides kyrie over performed last year so everyone wants to get 1 on 1 opportunities this year so they just play pick up game offense.... brad stevens is a great defensive coach, but not so much offense.

they just need to hustle like hell and give clearouts to kyrie the way they did for IT and some need to expect not getting any shots, its just the way it is, then they will be really good

I think Gordon Hayward was one of the most overrated players in nba BEFORE he got injured. He was not a great shooter or defender, he was just a good iso scorer. His physique wasn't exactly GREAT. Many guards 5-8 inches shorter than him with same or LONGER wingspans....

He just ended up on a very offensively challenged UTAH team which was why he did well and was recognized, avg as much as 22ppg.

I never thought Gordon fit well with boston to begin with.... he was never a catch and shoot player, he needed to get 1 on 1 iso's to get going....
