you literally think a person saying their NBA team of choice being better than the fucking 76ers is a 'schtick'

a literal thing you think.

I'm not sure they do

I'm becoming more convinced that they need some type of defensive stopper on the bench.

Terry Rozier has really responded to starting for Kyrie the last couple games. Triple double in the first and 31 points in the second on 11/18 and 6/8 from deep.

It's funny how we (I) say we should wait 3 years to judge whether someone is an NBA player but if they're mentioned a lot in year one and two without success they just become another guy. Maybe Rozier is good, I don't know

If you're evaluating based on injury factor then yeah probably. I've been loving stunned by his defense. I know having a rim protector helps, but it's not just passable/solid; it's pretty drat good.

You're watching too many games and confusing basketball iq and improbable skill plays for demonstrable production, it's a fair confusion to have. Embiid do more for team win. Simmons does more strange impossible basketball rather than having perfect touch and agility around the basket like Joel

That really helps me understand teens and tweens love of Kyrie. He's like Iverson for their generation, not actually the best player, but he's small and does crazy stuff that they could do if they worked really hard. He's a relatable figure, Kyrie's also become retarded via instagram posts, which is something teens share.

Insight you'll only get in NBA NV

Think of how many legitimately 'hard' guys are in the NBA. Majority of the players are lower middle class the sons of a school principal and a sheriff's deputy. If not that, then sons of a former pro.

It's Matt Barnes, the Morris twins, most of the Serbs, some of the Bosnians, our Turk and Georgian, James Johnson, I don't know. There just aren't a lot of ABA tough guys in the league, it's not the "inner city" league that racists rail against, because kids get moved to prep schools in calm parts of the country at age 14 or 15.

The few guys who spent large parts of their lives in rough areas show it on the court, Draymond Green in Saginaw, Kyle Kuzma in Flint until age 17/18

matt barnes is the epitome of fake hard. matt barnes grew up in the loving suburbs and spent his nba career playing hold me back and talking poo poo on social media

most of the eastern euro, Australian and African guys are legit tough. and my big Kiwi of course

the Morris twins are hard

James Johnson might be hard but might also be one of those dorks who does a lot of martial arts and won’t shut up about all his belts so hard to say

Matt Barnes moved to the suburbs because his house got raided by corrupt cops because his dad was a local drug dealer, so the dad packed up all their stuff and moved away. His white half meant he was always getting into fights then, his black half meant lots of racial abuse once he went to a white school. http://www.socalhoops.tierranet.com...498/barnes1.htm

Huh, I had no idea Kyle Kuzma is from Flint.

Applying your theory to Miles Bridges, he went to one of those prep schools instead of staying in Flint and now he doesn’t attack the rim nearly as much as he should.
