you hear many people may say winning a championship is good, but being the point differential champions of February has to be right up there.

also, watching post game interviews where the entire team fucks with Demar and then seeing Casey being cheesed about a 13 point win is cool stuff.

Did the Raps actually get the point differential record?

Also lol I want to yell at Demar while he tries to give interviews too

Maybe it's a side effect of the Warriors becoming comic book villains but I think my appreciation of James Harden goes up every year

James Harden owns unless you are rooting for a team he is playing against. Then his flopping becomes just obnoxious.

I am a big believer in Jakob Poeltl. I think he could be a 20 and 10 guy, maybe a couple blocks a game too. He also is a good passing big man.

I like Poeltl, but that is pretty bullish. To get to 10 rebounds a game he'd need to play almost twice as many minutes AND rebound like 33% more often per possession to get to 10. But 20ppg would be even harder. Poeltl is a pretty delibrate player, he isn't aggressively looking to score. His usage would need to be about 50% higher, and I don't think that fits his game very well. I think Poeltl is a low-end-starter/good backup type guy with some upside into good starter, but 20/10 and shooting those averages puts him into KAT (20/12) and Embiid (23/11) territory. I really don't think he's on that trajectory.

If you're Wes Johnson you either need to get up and immediately fight harden or just retire and move to tibet or something. You can't just keep playing basketball like nothing happened

My Friend Jake is my favourite but he should never have the ball for more than 2 seconds. And since he's not a spot up shooter I dont see him ever even scoring 15 a game. That's fine though. He can become a very strong defensive player and his mobility and soft hands means he wont be a liability on offense.
Even the most advanced analytics cant capture the power of My Friend Jake.

At least gotta try and play it off by arguing with the ref about a push off and get a tech or something. You can't just sit there and let that slide.

I wonder if the Harden clip wouldn't look nearly as bad if just one of Johnson's lazy rear end teammates had rotated over at some point.

Look, you see some dude get put on his rear end like that and I completely understand pausing while your brain works through the beauty that just unfolded in front of you.

That they didn't only makes it even more like an And1 Mixtape highlight clip, which is cool by me
