K-Love has gotta be the most disrespected player in the NBA
IT. I don't see him staying in Cleveland by this trade deadline.
Who's the leaker with Woj on speed dial?
LeBron definitely isn't the leaker if that's what people wanna think. LeBron notoriously dislikes Woj.
Despite the Hullaballoo in the Q, Love is posting his best season since 2014, 24-12/2 in 36 minutes on a career high 61 TS%
I just wanted to dispell the notion that despite love not being used like he was in minnesota, he has still been performing pretty well.
So far he's putting up
23.5/11.9/2.1/0.9/0.6 on 61.2 TS% (45.9/40.1/88.2)
Compared to his 2014 Year
25.9/12.4/4.4/0.8/0.5 on 59.3 TS% (45.7/37.6/82.1)
He's even got the same 2pt FG% as that year and his finishing is a career high 68.2%.
It just kind of bothers me that he's still being accused of wasting away (as a scorer) in cleveland like the first year when he was putting up 17.5 pp36. His skillset is very versatile but with lebron 23-24 pp36 out of a big man isnt some big crime fit wise.
Love is my favourite Cavalier over LeBron James.
Defensively, no, but offensively there's an argument to be made. Love was a huge cog in the cavs win streak, but now that he's relegated to 3rd option he's been ass. Dude is a rhythm player, he needs to get fed in the post to be useful offensively, not just jack up 3s
if you think thats the main stress of the cavaliers id take another look. thats not why they're struggling
I thought this theory was already dispelled in the other thread
Please throw in Mitchell as well.
We want Nance
Make it happen NBA
Terrance Ferguson would be so fun
[Begley] The Houston Rockets are not interested in trading Clint Capella for DeAndre Jordan
Also worth noting when talking about potential trades involving Knicks big men: The trade market for centers might be clogged at the deadline because of the availability of several bigs, including LA Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, and the dearth of teams looking for big men.
Speaking of Jordan, one name that came up in a conversation between members of the Rockets organization and the Clippers in a Jordan deal was Clint Capela, according to sources. Those talks, sources say, went nowhere because of Houston's affinity for Capela.
Makes sense. They have a younger, cheaper DeAndre.
why? all he does is catch lobs from CP and James Harden, his job isn’t that hard /s
Could be easier, Capella could have joined a 73 win team
Good, why trade a young stud for a 30 year old guy who wants a max.
Denial is, after all, the first stage of grief.
But yeah i refuse to believe it too.
i refuse to believe it
Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio from what I'm hearing. One is they've been unable to attract elite free agents to come play with him. ... The Spurs way looks like opportunity dressed in overalls. It looks like work. Players talk about wanting to win & being a champion but ultimately want to do it on their terms. Who's the CEO of the Spurs? Gregg Popovich. It's going to be his way. Also his injury situation. In the lineup, out of the lineup. Was he misdiagnosed? The Celtics fired their entire staff as it related to Isaiah Thomas injury. Maybe the same thing will happen in the future with San Antonio. The next super-team? Probably wherever Kawhi ends up.
I'm hearing the same thing. San Antonio has been spoiled by Tim Duncan, the ultimate soldier. ... Kawhi's uncle is running the show right now. This isn't typical stuff the Spurs have had to deal with. This is not a surprise. This has been mentioned in passing. It's hitting a boiling point now. Tim Duncan? That's family, the San Antonio Spurs. To Kawhi, Uncle Robertson, that's family, not the San Antonio Spurs & that's what the Spurs are NOT accustomed to dealing with & that's a problem for them.
Is Kawhi's uncle is the new Lavar or what lol.
Lmao I can't believe this is real. It's like he read that one article Kobe wrote to himself, tried to do his own, and just completely missed the point.
Lock his ass up, Kyle Anderson.
gonna be funny when lebron doesn't reach it tonight and lue is fired
This is PEAK Lebron, jesus fucking christ.
lmao I love LeBron but this is so corny
he forgot to switch accounts
I hope San Antonio triple team him and he ends up with some bizarre statline that denies him the achievement today
If you love LeBron you should know that all he is is a giant cornball lol he’s the cheesiest guy ever
I just can't get behind Klay over Dame. Dame has such a harder job.

Missed too many games, in his opinion
Nice one OP.

Red bars = Losses

Golden State's graph looks like a mountain range with a few narrow gorges. Cleveland's graph looks like a mountain range between two deep, wide canyons. Sacramento's graph looks like a lengthwise view of the Grand Canyon.
Holy shit, Utah!
John Wall and Bradley Beal have been awful in the 4th quarter this year
87 players have taken at least 100 shots in the 4th quarter this year. Wall and Beal place 85th and 86th in terms of eFG%. League average eFG% is 52.0%. Both Wall and Beal have an eFG% below 40% in the 4th quarter of games this year. Beal has missed more shots in the 4th quarter than anyone else in the league.
The Wizards have the 7th worst point differential in the 4th quarter this year.
if you watch the games the offense comes to a grinding halt, as they both (Brad & John) start to play their hero ball with contested jumpers. they've also both had problems with FT shooting in the 4th. little to no ball movement.
frustrating to watch the best 4th quarter player on the team this year (Otto) getting passed up for poor shots. granted Otto hasn't been great since his injury.. but still as fans it'd be nice to see some trust in a guy that's now being paid max dollars.
This is a result of Brooks' shit 4th quarter coaching as much as anything else.
Who is in 87th?
