  1. Oh for sure...but the whole "giggling press conference" they had and then Booker calling a flop the "luka special" got Luka to go into overdrive.

    Luka Doncic

    You did catch hell for that. You were right about more skilled. When you made the thread you jumped the gun IMO, and yes were attacked for saying "better than dirk alreadly"...but of course, have most likely been proven right by the end of the post season.
  3. No 2 days in between any games. Everyone saw this coming too. I don't what it is. Maybe because Luka is a slow white boy from Europe. But whatever it is...when will these idiots not realize Luka aint the one? Players try this crap all the time...all luka does is use it as motivation. And instead of being classy and keeping it personal like Dirk...Luka will clown you on the way out and make sure you never forgot. Just nuts.

    Luka Doncic

    Here's the thing...of course there's obviously a racial component that a lot of people immediately jump to "He's like Larry Bird". No, playing wise and skillset he's not. He's closer to Lebron in playstyle(without the athleticism) and of course Harden by what he wants to do(Luka is bigger and stronger, and posts up more...plus shows up more in the clutch). I think when people say he's like Larry Bird now, it's more about the mentality. He's a Dawg. He's an Asshole. He takes shit personal and will use it to motivate him to go hard on you...and when he does? He'll let you know. I've even seen it compared to the way MJ motivated himself. He used slights against him to motivate him to be even a better player. No he's NOT Bird, or Lebron, or MJ. He's his own guy...and with this current trajectory, there's no doubt in my mind he could be mentioned amongst them in 15- years.
  5. Bandwagon if. Jesus Christ talk about over exposing yourself. Been a Mavs fan since the triple Js. You ain’t as smart as you think asshole. Keep hyping yourself up as an expert though. It’s cute.
  6. Jesus you come off as a dick in every post. Just responding to a post…as you know, what people do on a fucking message board.
  7. We came out this series with an epic pic/meme(luka looking at Booker cheezing his ass off) and an all time quote after game 5(“always tough when you up”). He destroyed them after that. Add in the “Luka special” abs CP0rings and Booker giggle fest of a post game conference about targeting him in game two and they awoke a beast. When the league gonna stop trying this kid? He lives for this. Feeds a off the hate and disrespect.
  8. Also while GS should be the favorites. I do not think they’re going to to dominate or “run” the Mavs out. This should be a toss or up slight lien to GS. They need to come out and punch them in the mouth or the Mavs will make it tough.
  9. You should never have thought he wasn’t top tier. Maybe in November when he was out of shape and fat…bus since Jan, or at worst the trade deadline he was as good as any of the MVP candidates or even better.
  10. Great ducking win. And now, of course, “GSW are going to feast”. That’s the word in the streets. Can’t wait.
  11. Mavs 0-3 on TNT. 3-0 on ESPN. If you believe in that sort of thing. BTW aren’t we smart enough to realize the whole “Luka shared the ball more and they win” narrative is BS? His usage has been about the same every game. The number of shots taken has been pretty close every game. The only difference is the role players at home got shots and on the road they don’t. You could also say the energy and flow of the off ball Mavs is better too.
  12. Right. The west is full of hood young teams that are gluten to be a problem. Memphis isn’t going anywhere. Dallas isn’t going to be worse. Denver will get their guys back. Pels and Minny took a step. Suns aren’t going anywhere. And the lakers won’t suck more.
  13. He was already mentioned and not disputed. And this was I Responding to the guy who said that Jokic and Giannis, clearly the 2 best players, could take over series or win a game 7 and he excluded Luka.
  14. Jokic is a better defender than Lebron and Luka? I wouldn't think that's close to true. I do agree that Giannis and JOkic are the clearloy best 2 players in the league, but my point was the one guy who could take over a series like them IS Luka.
  15. Great fucking win. Need one more. Gotta have role players show up. Would hate to waste another great Luka performance OR have Luka have to do everything, and get shit on when he struggles.
  16. Not sure why Jerry West is suing...this show and that character is one of the brightest spots on the entire show. It's making me LIKE Jerry even more.
  17. Well he isn't wrong. However, the team will choose to build around the guard thanks to his scoring potential...hope Mitchell commits to defense again.
  18. I think Kolar is a better pass catcher who played with a MUCH better QB. I think Ferguson will be perfectly fine as TE2 with potential to be at least Dalton when all said and done.
  19. Lot's of hyperbole here. If you didn't think it's a good pick, cool...but it's FAR from Terrible. Everything out there is basically comparing him to Shulz, who he's likely to replace as start when Shulz leaves next year(unless you think he'll be paid). This guy is an inline blocker and will be playing with Shulz game one most likely. I think they wanted Kolar, just didn't go up and get him...but acting like this is a "terrible" pick when it's a 4th round TE is a bit of overkill.
  20. I'm guessing Bridges on Brunson to completely shut him down with length and size...just take your chances are sending multiple looks at Luka with Crowder and others. Mikal or jae on Luka, the other on brunson. Here's where I'm at. Putting Bridges on Luka definitely will cause issues. But he won't shut Luka down completely. Just like Luka probably won't have his way with him. It'll be a 50/50 thing. Meanwhile Brunson is free to torch whoever is guarding him. But if I was them, I'd have Bridges just hound Brunson and do whatever you can to slow Luka down otherwise. I do NOT think Luka being the super high usage guy and scoring 40 a game will lead to multiple wins in this series. Need to have another good Brunson series. PHX should know that.
  21. I know right...like Minny would have send shit WITH KAT to get Ayton from PHX. I'm hoping KAT isn't a finished product but damn...that dude was taking and missing jump shots and failed to put Memphis away. "Best shooting Big Man" didn't shoot well when it mattered.
  22. Huh? That was a bad scouting report talking about Tolbert. He's going to be a player. Now the Draft so far? It's not even close to an A...but after day 2 they've hit all their big needs with players with upside and all should contribute this year. I'd give them a low B grade at least. They trade for a QB? Yeah we do this every year. The Cowboys may not win the NFC East for a 2nd year in a row...but it's going to be because they, once again, get in their own fucking way. It won't be because other teams are better than them.
  23. That’s a BAD scouting report. He’s a sleeper and will be at worst Cedric Wilson like player for the Cowboys. Actually a comp for him is Gallup. Somehow the cowboys kind of backed into a solid 3 round draft. Nothing flashy. Lots of complaints. But players that will help. Some might even be starters.
