yeah man east could be fun

Better Pau Gasol (Spottie), Thursday, 14 April 2016 18:22 (two years ago) Permalink

imo east has 6-7 good teams (depending on how you feel about the pacers) and the west has 5-6 good teams (depending on how you feel about the mavs). but the west has 4 of the 5 best teams

k3vin k., Thursday, 14 April 2016 18:28 (two years ago) Permalink

dubs in 5 - I think there will be a slight letdown after the big push to 73 wins
spurs in 4 - they'll be motivated by the extra rest they'd get after a sweep
thunder in 6 - mavs will dig deep for two close wins, but it won't matter
clips in 7 - blazers match up well, but not with chris paul
cavs in 5 - cavs have too many flaws to sweep it
raptors in 5 - raps could sweep, but why bother?
hornets in 6 - they have been rising fast
celtics in 7 - they will unswoon in time to advance

further, I predict that nearly half of these predictions will be inaccurate

you could make a case for all sweeps in the west

celtics could not deal with millsap+horford during the regular season and i'm not sure what they do to fix that in the offs

everyday i'm hoistlin'

ulysses, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 17:16 (two years ago) Permalink

just because i didn't see much conversation about it in the media: though donovan's coaching was generally pretty astute, the decision to let Adams and Ibaka follow Steph and Klay to the perimeter in that last game was a terrible one.
after the spurs/dubs series, I have come around to Adams as an elite player and possibly top five center. curious to see if his body can stand up to the pain he's putting it through and deliver the same results in '17.

ulysses, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 22:39 (two years ago) Permalink

Adams had a good playoffs but idk if he's better than many of the other good centers that people forget about since they're on bad teams like vooch and gobert

ciderpress, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:15 (two years ago) Permalink

id def rather have adams than vuch or golbert his combination of mobility athleticism and finishing is perfect for todays nba, vooc cant defend and gobert is slow as heck

lag∞n, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:23 (two years ago) Permalink

+obvs a total gamer

lag∞n, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:23 (two years ago) Permalink

adams is great feel like he needs to add one more thing to his game to be elite. he prob could have some playmaking ability if he played on another team.

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:27 (two years ago) Permalink

if he cld get his dive game stronger he cld be really good, he doesnt really explode out of the pnr like he cld, hed be unstoppable

lag∞n, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:28 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah that's one he could add too.

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:31 (two years ago) Permalink

hes reasonable in the pnr now but he often doesnt use his athleticism like he cld

lag∞n, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:33 (two years ago) Permalink

feel like he's a younger version of current boguts.

Spottie, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:38 (two years ago) Permalink

I think it's unconscionable that you lot are praising a guy with a hipster mustache.

Jenny Ondioleeene (Leee), Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:47 (two years ago) Permalink

why is adams so bad in the advanced stats

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:52 (two years ago) Permalink

advanced stats suck at evaluating centers also he wasn't that good until late in the season + playoffs

ciderpress, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:54 (two years ago) Permalink

he was really inconsistent all year.

Spottie, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:55 (two years ago) Permalink

i always believed in him the archives will show

lag∞n, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 23:58 (two years ago) Permalink

he rebounded at a much higher rate in the offs is the biggest thing

kinda get you here but he's so much stronger. that under-the-basket reverse one handed dunk he does is a legit fatality

xp nice as those are (and he gets more elevation than adams), they don't quite have the ferocity of some of SA's playoff dunks

Was just thinking this, basically that short jumper ibaka used to use before they shoved him out to the line, could be a good option for Russell drives that get squashed or just a way to add some shell game to the p-n-r with Russ
