Lately Westbrook been taking less 3's and been playing great basketball. I say he playing like a top ten player

Agree3 Disagree3

24 Feb 2020 15:14:14
He's a top ten player.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Feb 2020 17:43:49
Giannis, Lebron, AD, Harden, Leonard, Doncic, Lillard, Jokic, Butler, Curry, Durant. I don't think he's top 10.

He's not far behind, but I don't think he's in that first tier group.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2020 19:33:55
It states the way he been playing because curry and Durant hurt so it makes Westbrook look real good. He actually playing smart ball like he should been 8 years ago. Being second to harden he playing better then most teams first option.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2020 19:48:58
Bmiller. Until we see curry or KD next year he is a top 10 today. Lillard is great but top 10 guys get to playoffs.

Agree1 Disagree0

I just don't trust Westbrook (especially in the playoffs) to continue to play smart. He's one of the most talented and lowest IQ players I've ever seen.

Also, his problem has always felt like he is required to be the #1 option, no matter what's going on around him. He can't defer. Maybe he's grown up and learned, but I'll believe it when I see it. I don't think he can make a deep playoff run without being dragged there by superior teammates. He's never been out of the first round without Durant.

Missing the playoffs once in 8 years isn't a fluke? Portland is missing their 3-5 best players. Take Gordon, Covington, and Tucker off Houston and they drop pretty badly. Not many teams can stay afloat missing 3 starters. They had 9 healthy bodies yesterday (40% of the roster was inactive) .

Next season, who's coaching?

Clippers
76ers
Bucks
Rockets
Knicks
Kings
Bulls
Cavs

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2020 16:02:55
Rivers, Walton and whomever is in Milwaukee are going to still be there.

Everybody else is or will be looking for new coaching. Add San Antonio to the mix. Think Pop is done after the Olympics.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2020 20:19:59
I'm not sure Rivers sticks if the Clippers fail in the playoffs. I think he needs to win the second round to keep his job. if he goes I'd look at Tyronn Lue stepping up.
Budenholzer in Milwaukee will have won the #1 seed 3 times now (once with Atlanta, and I'm assuming a 2nd time with Milwaukee this year) but hasn't been able to get to the final. I wonder if the Bucks panic if they get beat out in the conference finals again?
I think D'Antoni needs to get at least to the conference final with Houston as well. he'll be rewarded if they win but he's a lame duck who wants more money than ownership wants to part with, so they'll look elsewhere if he doesn't win
Cleveland may stick with Bickerstaff if all goes okay for the rest of the year, but otherwise I'd think they'll look for a former player. Jason Kidd maybe?
Brett Brown won't last in Phila if they don't get past the second round either. no idea who would fit there. but it might be a different GM doing the hire.
Bulls, Knicks? who wants a temporary job where the only guarantee is you won't make it to your next contract?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2020 01:22:10
The thing with Rivers and Budenhowzer is who are you getting that is better?

Now if you are pulling a Nurse from Toronto, that's one thing. But with the current available coaches, I would run it again.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Feb 2020 17:54:50
I've said the same thing in Portland for 5 years Fredman. Stotts might not be the best coach in the world, but he's a good coach. Finding an upgrade isn't always easy.

Especially with Rivers, I think making a change just to make a change is very short sighted. The only ways I'd move on from him or Budenhowzer is if my star player (s) specifically asked me to.

Phili and Houston making moves makes sense though. They're impatient franchises that are starting to look like they don't have enough to win it all. A coaching move seems like the easiest change.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Feb 2020 22:06:25
Do the Chicago bulls need to start completely over?

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Feb 2020 22:57:12
Yes, absolutely. Keep Markannen, White, and Hutchison, and move everyone else. Even those guys aren’t untouchable, just really solid young guys. But Chicago is two all stars away from contending.

Agree0 Disagree5

23 Feb 2020 16:03:45
Starting over suggests that they started at some time. Not 100% sure that is true.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Feb 2020 03:34:18
True fredman. I’ve never understood their moves. Porter and Lavine were never moves that made any sense.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Feb 2020 18:06:28
Toss in the Parker signing which became Porter.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2020 18:07:02
Trading Butler for Lavine, and Dunn is one thing, but Porter for Jabari Parker was a decent deal. If Porter wasn't injured the Bulls would be better defensively, and also a little better on the perimeter. Don't see that being a bad play short or long term for the Bulls. It's not as if Chicago is a small market paying 2 guys max+ contracts and have only won 20 games? Porter is young enough, and there is time left to flip him for something else. Jabari Parker has next to no value beyond a minimum contract at this point.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 18:39:44
Top 3 options if Giannis leaves the bucks.
Miami Heat just my feeling

Raptors really have good shot cause giannis relationship with siakam plus lots of cap in 2021

Lakers because Davis and Giannis a long term fit together

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Feb 2020 19:27:18
I feel Miami can trade for Embiid and sign Giannis.

Agree2 Disagree5

21 Feb 2020 22:14:04
Miami will have Bam, Nunn and D. Robinson as RFAs that off season. Going to let them just walk? Not seeing the Embiid trade at all.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 22:36:12
I don’t see him leaving.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Feb 2020 18:10:17
They can trade those three for Embiid next year sometime And sign Giannis in following offseason.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2020 18:19:03
I was right about the Paul trade but got vetoed, the Howard trade, the Howard signing to Houston, the love trade to Cleveland, James coming back to Cleveland then right about him going to Lakers. Right bout the Davis trade and the Bradley signing. But if Miami don’t get Embiid there going to be lots of speculation they tried really hard. Let’s see. But Was wrong on a lot of things but mostly just funny trades and Leonard. Soon clippers got George I knew the deal though. Plus wrong about George signing in okc and butler going to Miami. 💯.

Agree0 Disagree9

21 Feb 2020 16:03:20
Any bulls fans on here haha

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Feb 2020 15:05:21
LAKERS VS CLIPPERS

Starters:
McGee vs Zubac
Davis vs Morris
James vs Leonard
Green vs George
Bradley vs Beverley

Bench:
Rondo, Caruso, Pope, Kuzma, Howard,
Cook and Cousins(healthy)

vs

Jackson(expected to be sign), Williams, Shamet, Patterson, Harrell, Green and McGruder

Coach:
Vogel vs Rivers

Agree5 Disagree0

23 Feb 2020 11:26:51
Its kinda sad that they are waiving Cousins. I was expecting him playing in the playoffs. I guess next season will be good career for Cousins.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2020 14:46:18
Milwaukee is currently number one in the East and has the most wins also..

Which Eastern team do you think will beat the Bucks in the playoffs?? Celtics, Raptors, Heat, Sixers, Pacers, Nets or Magic??

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2020 15:11:01
None? all? who knows.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2020 16:22:55
Best chance? I guess I'll go with Boston. Not sure why, just a gut instinct.

Who will? No one.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Feb 2020 17:06:05
Toronto.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2020 17:06:27
Lakers will.

Agree0 Disagree4

20 Feb 2020 17:36:11
ll: In the east. Last I checked, the Lakers didn't swap coasts.

Agree4 Disagree1

20 Feb 2020 18:54:29
When I said Lakers win i'm meaning no team will beat them in the East but Lakers will in finals.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Feb 2020 14:18:58
ll- I don’t see lakers in finals. I see clippers or jazz.

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Feb 2020 14:50:23
I'd really like to see Toronto face Milwaukee in the conference final again. If Toronto wins then Nick Nurse deserves a lot more respect as a Coach-of-the-Year contender. If they lose then Kawhi bolsters his claim as #1 in the association.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 15:50:00
If Toronto gets the 2 seed and makes the conference finals, I think Nurse makes a case for being the best coach in the NBA. Even if they got swept by the Bucks I’d think that. That team should not be this good. It’s just not how the NBA works.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 18:44:04
Toronto good cause Kyle Lowry.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2020 23:12:01
Toronto all the way. Even with multiple starters injured they're still a top 4 seed in the east.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Feb 2020 20:09:28
Bucks
Raptors
Celtics
Pacers/ Miami are wild cards. Oladipo/ Miami youth

Clippers
Lakers/ Nuggets (tied)
Houston
Jazz are the Wild card of the west. I don't think DAL with the Powell injury are much of a threat anymore, and OKC doesn't have the talent to get of round 1.

Playoffs will be fun if the rockets continue with this up-tempo, high scoring small ball approach. The NBA loves it. I enjoy the games a lot since they made the small ball change.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2020 20:41:19
ELam Ending? It bad enough the MLB is ruined with its cheating scandals. Please do not ruin the NBA with Elam Ending. It is perfect though for the allstar game.

Agree1 Disagree4

19 Feb 2020 21:25:31
I love the Elam Ending. I'd be happy if they changed every game to it. It's just more entertaining. It removes the intentional fouling/ timeout slowdown of the last minute of the game.

Rumor has it that the in season tournament that they're inevitably adding in the next year or two might be Elam Ending rules, and the rest of the regular season would remain unchanged.

Agree5 Disagree2

20 Feb 2020 14:34:42
season tournament another joke.

Agree2 Disagree3

20 Feb 2020 16:24:44
I like the idea of a mid season tournament. Anything before the all star break is pretty low stakes from a game to game standpoint. If you are fighting for seeding for a tournament in January, it gives the first half of the season more weight.

Agree3 Disagree3

22 Feb 2020 20:32:37
There are rumors of:
Added draft picks
Wins in the tournament count for double from a regular season win (go watch Bill Simmons idea, it’s fantastic)
A huge money payout for the winner

There’s plenty of ways to make it worth the time for the players and franchises.

Agree0 Disagree0
