But this is nearly always the case in extreme performances. Over the last three seasons there have been 32 fifty point games, only 7 of them have been against opponents with winning records (and 3 of those games were losses).

edit I think these numbers aren't quite right, but I deleted the spreadsheet and my point stands anyway.

Oh for sure, I was actually making the opposite joke, that Iím definitely NOT embarrassed that my favorite team got pasted and that they are for sure not a melted turd of a team


This thread has pretty good book taste, even some of the joke entries are good!

so is greg monroe a huge rear end in a top hat aka Locker Room Cancer, or?

I've never heard anything negative about him. The Suns traded for him because they thought they could flip him for a first round draft pick but it turns out only letting a guy play a week a month to highlight him or when a washed up Tyson Chandler or a generally mediocre Alex Len can't play for some reason isn't the best way to maintain his value.

If he does end up with the Celtics at their DPE that will deflect much of the Suns cost for him for the year since buyouts are almost always offset by the next contract a player gets in that season (and this is at least how they're always counted for the cap).

hah I was watching the nets game for the most part and this was the only piece of the Knicks game I seen live

i gotta say it feels better being a fan of the team commanded by the lonesome empty-heart thief-in-law with an ego that could devour the world rather than the team inherited by the jelly man who pays musicians to pretend they're his friends. i think we're more likely to succeed and the color scheme is much more NYC*. we gotta figure out a way to play in black jeans and timberlands tho

Pretty sure the only way for the warriors to do that is a sign and trade with Iguodala and Livingston, unless they want to shed Klay or Draymond.

I doubt it's click bait or conjecture. It's not all that shocking.

I have little doubt someone told Haynes LeBron would take a meeting with the Warriors if they could offer him the max.

LeBron would probably take a meeting with any halfway decent team with room for a max.

He needs to at the absolute minimum develop a respectable mid range game. I already worry about how teams will game plan against him right now in a playoff series.

We have plenty of evidence, including from less than a year ago, that narrative is more important than having a better season, though.

For what it's worth it was also reported he's still interested in the Lakers for some reason so clearly this is all just Lebron trying to undermine Gilbert, for some reason.

Lebron will tell the Warriors he's interested just to gently caress with them. Like when he hosed with Gilbert and made them sign Bogut. First billionaire champion of the proletariat. GOAT.

Speaking of Lakers, that Clutchfan guy who is often right about Lakers trades for some reason is claiming that the Lakers are close on a Marc Gasol trade (would probably be a Lopez+Pick for Gasol swap, looking at the rosters). They do need to secure a first round pick to make it happen, but there was also a report yesterday that teams are calling offering picks for Randle and/or Clarkson.

There is shampoo in his hair and soap on Gasol's hands (he's about to be washed) so I don't really like this that much but I guess it's better than betting on two superstars.

Metapod posted:

I genuinely hope people recognize that while he looks like Lebron James Jr when Embiid is around, he looks like Tyreke Evans Jr. when Embiid is gone, which isn't to poo poo on him because he's a rookie and poo poo takes time, but clearly Embiid is the difference maker here.

He's averaging 31/17 over 26 games. He's been the "International Player of the Week" 3 out of 9 weeks so far this season.

In other China watching, Brandon Jennings is averaging 28/7/5 in 13 games and is looking for an NBA team.
