That's silly.  Everyone knows it'll be AD and Giannis.

I mean if Giannis wanted to pull the ultimate bitch move and fake injury and cry his way off of a team, Kawhi Leonard would be a great mentor.

Come to UK, Billy.  

Not sure John C would appreciate that.

Plus, there should be a job opening in Austin by this summer. Hopefully.

This Celtics Raptors game is f'n insane. Big shots one after the other here at the end of the 2nd OT.

These guys should be running up and down the court with wheelbarrows to hold their nuts.

Had to "help" my wife with her fantasy football draft. Sucks that I missed that finish

I hope her player evaluations are better than yours.

Actually I was going to see if you could predict her team goes winless, wouldn't mind her winning the first place money.

Boom... And once again, Los Angeles belongs solely to the #Purple&Gold...

I am intrigued by the chatter of Donovan & CP3 to the Bucks, if Giannis stays...

Only if she drafts Patrick Mahomes and he throws 12 touchdowns all year.

How are the Clippers shooting so poorly and winning? Just tuned in right before half.

Paul George is one of the strangest players in basketball. Looked at the box score to see how the game is going and see a stat line of 2-5 shooting for 4 points,  1 rebound, 2 assists, 1 steal, 3 turnovers, and 3 fouls. Terrible statline. Then you look over and see that he leads the team in +/- at +9. Just a bizarre player.

  You should've just let her pick by the animals she likes. She would've won the league.

She basically picked all Saints (our team) and former Saints players, players she knows of for whatever random ass reason, and inexplicably Stefon Diggs because she remembers him from the Minnesota Miracle. So yeah she'll probably dominate the league almost purely on accident. It does project her as the second best team.

I need to get used to the idea of Kawhi winning his 2nd championship in 2 years on 2 different teams because no one is stopping this motherfucker. He's like a hair under prime MJ level.

There's no way Denver isn't beat up and worn down at this point. They've played every other night for more than three weeks in a row, first in a grueling emotional series with Utah, followed by the Clippers and their active motion offense and pesky defense. This series feels over to me. Murray has lost all of his confidence and they look lost on offense as a team. They're all sort of standing around waiting for someone else to figure out the LAC puzzle. They have defeated and tired body language.

Kawhi looks like he's about over watching his teammates miss wide open shots and is about to go to the rack every possession.

They played one more game in the first round than the Clippers. They just aren't anywhere close to the Clippers level. If Jokic is your best player, this is about as far as you can expect to go in the West.

You two should get a room and fuck it out. But please don’t- it’s my favorite ongoing bit on this thread.

Random thought from last night's game. I decided, somewhat ironically given the happenings in the Mavs/Clips series, that the Mavericks should go after Montrezl Harrell in free agency this year. While I think the whole "Mavs need Charles Oakley to come in and beat up their opponents!!" is a stupid hot take, they do need more nasty (tm Pop). They need more assertiveness and energy and funk. They need a couple of aggressive, rash American dudes that will give the team some swagger. It's a good basketball fit too, he'd be a great bench energy guy, can play small ball C in a pinch next to Porzingis. He works hard and smart off-ball to find creases which would work really with with Luka. He's also becoming a very capable defender. No idea if it works cap wise or whatever. Also, fuck the Mavericks.

I'm a bit late on posting this, but seeing Butler lead Miami to at least the Conference Finals is pretty cool.

The before and after win totals of teams he left shows that every team's win percentage went down without him.

Chicago 41 with 27 without.

Minnesota 47 with 36 without (He was part of the team for 10 games that year)

Philadelphia 51 with (43-30 in a shortened season after.). Philly went 42-25 with him during that 51 win season.

Miami was 39-43 without him last year. This season they were on pace to win at least 50 games, but finished 44-29 in the shortened season.

I am not pointing this out because I am a fan boy or anything like that, it's just to illustrate that the narrative about him not fitting in or being a bad teammate was incorrect. It was a narrative I always found to be exactly that and could never understand why people ran with it when the results of his career show his value to the teams he was on. Everywhere this guy goes the team gets better. It isn't a coincidence that every team he leaves does not improve. He just needed some mentally tough teammates that love the game as much as he does around him. The results speak for themselves.

Its always been kinda funny how much of a blue collar franchise the Heat are in just the opposite of blue collar MIA.   Jimmy found an org that embraces and loves guys that work hard and expect the same from their teammates.   It was a perfect match.

Poor Case McCoy.  You can start 16 games and score 24 touchdowns for a D1 school, but you watch your friend have sex ONCE......
