he definitely was offered the MLE by the Wiz
We have a structured team dynamic? Cool, I guess
I don't actually think Russ is one of those leaders who gets on everybody's ass for every little thing. He usually tries to lead by example.
Russ will probably be good for him. If Noel slacks off or fucks up Russ sure as hell won’t go easy on him. He needs to be kept on his toes.
People say KD is better already lmao
He aint called Legend for nothing
Because too many nephews on this sub.
The generation today will always say that players today are better. It dorsnt help that there's no social media before. Its a shame that back injuries denied as of a Larry Bird long career. This dude is like shoot at will kind of guy.
KAwhI iS aLREadY BEttER tHAn PIppEN
Who has ever said that lol everyone knows he had pippen
Been a Lakers fan ever since Lebron joined?
Why? MJ's teams were better, nothing wrong with that
Should’ve said “im like lebron, y’all are like the Lakers” smh
On Monday morning at 3am I ran into Josh Hart and Larry Nance Jr at Taco Bell Cantina in Las Vegas. Former teammates, and both have (will have) had a chance to play with LeBron. Also, Josh was playing in summer league... not sure why he was out so late.
Snitchin smh that you Dangelo
Being loyal to me team even tho they aren’t great isn’t something I’m ashamed or should be shamed about. I never said they were good. I’m proud to be a nets fan.
Anyone else feel like Gates doesn’t look that small next to Shaq? He looks small, but it’s not as extreme as I would have thought.
I was thinking the same thing. I think shaq looks way bigger next to people now because he's fat
Lol it's the same guy talking to himself
I went to Shaqs concert last night at echostage
Brian Windhorst: "It probably infuriates people because I didn’t have basic television training, and there’s a lot of really talented television people out there who are probably like, 'What the hell is this fat asshole doing on television?' And I have to say, I’ve often thought the same thing."
Going from beat writer to TV personality, for lack of a better word, how has that changed the way you cover the league?
It’s funny. It probably infuriates people because I didn’t have basic television training, and there’s a lot of really talented television people out there who are probably like, “What the hell is this fat asshole doing on television?” And I have to say, I’ve often thought the same thing. But the NBA has a fanbase that really embraces complexity. NBA fans love the collective bargaining agreement and the salary cap and stuff like that ― and you also have fans out there who don’t understand as much ― so what I try to do is take complex subjects and make them more understandable and also try to offer perspective on things.
Like one of the things that has been happening this week is that people are trying to analyze these Laker moves post-LeBron. We’ll be on a panel or something, and somebody will analyze Rondo’s game and someone will analyze Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s game. “This is how Lance Stephenson will fit.” Because they’re trying to do what their job is, which is to really break down and be an analyst. But then I’m kind of cool with saying: I don’t know what the hell they’re doing.
I like Windy.
I've never understood the hate for him at all. Yeah he's said stuff I don't agree with but so has Zach Lowe who the /sub/nba community reveres as a god. I mean everyone says something you disagree with at some point. And honestly? He's pretty level headed and doesn't have super hot fire takes just for the sake of having super hot fire takes. He's also very knowledgeable and seems well connected.
The way this sub brushed everything that he said off for a solid 8 or 9 months this past season calling him a hack and a liar and a dude just slinging shit and hoping it sticked, and relentlessly attacked his appearance and brushed off literally everything he ever reported saying "lol LeBron-Stan", it's kind of nice to see everyone have to eat it.
Fat + closely associated with LeBron = recipe for trolling and internet hate
Not enough is made of the fact that there is a post on r/nba’s front page that describe’s Kevin Love’s entire Cavalier life as some type of psychological torture of which Lebron is an active participant
There is literally a post on the front page that talks about how Kevin Love is “ beat down and beleaguered” on a daily basis, actually claiming that Love developed anxiety and depression due to what it’s like playing with Lebron. Also points the blame at Lebron for partaking in this.
Absolutely god awful take. As someone who has gone through anxiety and depression, it genuinely makes me upset that people think that “ being put in high pressure” scenarios is the fundamental cause of it. There are much deeper causes of it that are not immediately relevant to some degree of inconvenience you face in your professional life. This is likely the case with Love too. Pointing the blame at Lebron and painting him as some type of locker room bully who continually undermines Love is taking it way too far and kinda gross.
yea it was much more of a veiled lebron-hater post than an actual KLove appreciation post.
This sub highkey looks out for white its own
Thank you for saying this. I've expressed similar sentiments and been downvoted to oblivion. This sub is made of mostly white dudes - which is okay - but it's important to acknowledge the unconscious bias that may exist.
I read the first sentence of that post and immediately backed out of the thread lmao LeBron James gave Kevin Love a Championship ring. Someone who had never even been to the playoffs in his career. LeBron has constantly stood besides Love at every moment through tons of criticism. That thread is an absolute joke and the fact it reached #1 on the page is pretty pathetic
They're either coming to NY or Brooklyn together
I don’t see how Kyrie could leave a perfect situation in Boston.
The knicks and nets will be lotto teams this year
Basketball wise it’s a perfect situation for Kyrie.
Random Crazy Fact: Rasual Butler Once Had A Game Where He Recorded 1 Turnover In 0 Seconds Of Playing Time.
In a 93-92 loss to the Lakers, Butler had been on the bench the entire game but with the game in the balance he was subbed in to take the inbounds pass. In remarkable fashion he committed a five second violation and considering the fact that clock hadn’t started and he was subbed out immediately after this was technically a 0 second game for him. The fact that Toronto lost this matchup just really makes things so much worse.
I can’t decide if this is a shit post or a cool little interesting fact I guess it’s sorta both but I’m gonna go with along with it
RIP RB 😔
RIP in peace
Its a great post GODDAMMIT
What division could make the most dominant starting 5 with EACH TEAM REPRESENTED.
Rules : - 1 player from each team. - Post 2018 Off-season, all RFA'S return to team assuming no major trades happen
Atlantic Raptors Celtics Knicks 76ers Nets
Central Cavaliers Pacers Bucks Pistons Bulls
Southeast Heat Wizards Hornets Magic Hawks
Northwest Blazers Thunder Jazz Timberwolves Nuggets
Pacific Warriors Clippers Lakers Kings Suns
Southwest Rockets Spurs Mavericks Grizzlies Pelicans
Kudos, this is actually a fun idea and a good question.
Gonna have to go with the Northwest Division.
Harden, Leonard, Davis. Plus some combo of Conley/Gasol and Barnes/DJ. You could make a few different rosters that would be really good in different styles. CP3, Jrue, LMA plus the 2 from the Mavs/Grizz that didn’t start as the second unit.
well yeah I did it once with no “1 from each team” and every comment was “LBJ to Golden State” so nothing really got anywhere...
Southwest: Harden, Kawhi, DeAndre, Conley, AD (just beat out Pacific)
