when u watch the nba through the they live glasses it says LEBRON IS THE JUICEMAN

lag∞n, Friday, 22 April 2016 02:16 (two years ago) Permalink

pelton said this in his chat, kinda interesting

I think the NBA should rethink its entire philosophy on fouling to penalize the player who is responsible for creating the contact rather than the player with the nebulous right to the space, which is what creates the rip-through foul but also block/charge calls.

lag∞n, Friday, 22 April 2016 21:17 (two years ago) Permalink

I agree with that, block vs charge in particular feels like a coinflip a lot of the time

hes totally living up to the hype afaict

micah, Saturday, 22 October 2016 09:37 (two years ago) Permalink

im probably the only person who cares, but the spurs made their final roster picks. keeping bryn forbes (excited for him, this guy can shoot the 3) and nico laprovittola (yay argentina). they cut the other argentina player garino and one of the 1st rounders they signed from tony parker's french team, livio jean charles. that dudes numbers were super underwhelming at all levels, was rly surprised they had signed him, but i guess it was a cheap enough deal where they could test out his nba readiness without risking him sucking in a real game.

6 god none the richer (m bison), Saturday, 22 October 2016 19:01 (two years ago) Permalink

anyway, the spurs have a billion backcourt players now. i think theyve really improved their outside shooting. laprovittola, forbes, bertans can all come off the bench and spread the floor. but theyve got a lot of combo guards. aside fro the big names, the spurs are really young this year.

lag∞n, Sunday, 23 October 2016 19:52 (two years ago) Permalink

In spite of the fact that the Blazer roster has no major changes and might possibly be marginally improved over last season, I find my best guess about their eventual record, seeding and playoff success to be as uncertain as it was at the start of last season, when almost the whole roster was turned over and they lost 4 of 5 starters.

a little too mature to be cute (Aimless), Monday, 24 October 2016 03:10 (two years ago) Permalink

blazers were one of the healthiest teams last year iirc, my personal guess is they regress by a game or two

call all destroyer, Monday, 24 October 2016 03:16 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah i think they'll flex back a bit. they prob played a little over their heads last season and i don't think adding evan turner is going to push their team anywhere. i think they prob end up more like the 7th seed than the 5ht.

J0rdan S., Monday, 24 October 2016 03:19 (two years ago) Permalink

they'll have a much harder time pulling away from the pack this season if the jazz/grizz/mavs/pels are healthier. they kinda had everything break their way last year. my best guess is they'll be fighting for the bottom seeds

ciderpress, Monday, 24 October 2016 03:22 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah and specifically in their division utah, denver, and minnesota all figure to be better to much better

Spottie, Monday, 24 October 2016 04:47 (two years ago) Permalink

*blazers should be

Spottie, Monday, 24 October 2016 04:47 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah the optimistic side is that you've got a borderline superstar hitting his prime, a genuine scorer and shooter really only playing in his second full year with heavy minutes, and a bunch of ~25 year olds who now have a year of playing together under their belts, which is all pretty good stuff pointing to improvement this year. also stotts is v good too.

Clay, Monday, 24 October 2016 04:50 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah i like the blaze from the pov of youth improving particularly mccollum and crabbe, dame seems a lil closer to peak tho he cld still have another leap in him, i watched a blaze preseason game and cj was balling out just getting whatever he wanted making perfect reads throwing some good passes hitting tough shots hitting easy shots he looked really good and confident in the flow

feel like hes one of thse players where when youre watching him youre like how is he doing this it doesnt make sense like hes not that quick or athletic or big it doesnt look like hes doing insanely skilled wizardry but the ball just keeps going in

lag∞n, Monday, 24 October 2016 05:43 (two years ago) Permalink

I'd really like to see plums make a significant jump this year but he's never gonna really be a scorer so I guess it'd have to be in defense and idk like bruisering / intimidation factor. Dude needs to learn to swat some shots or something.

plums is such a disappointment, all the physical tools in the world and even flashes of having a good feel for the game but just cant put it together

Steve Kerr on the MVP race is pretty hamhanded but I like his conclusion: “I think KD is kind of like Gary Johnson, a third party guy who is going to come in and take a few votes from Steph, takes some from LeBron and then Damian Lillard wins the election. That’s my forecast.”

lag∞n, Monday, 24 October 2016 16:40 (two years ago) Permalink

it's not the claim so much as the way in which it's made, which is as if he's responding to an overrating of stevens that doesn't actually exist among rational fans. like you wouldnt catch me saying stevens was as good as pop or carlisle or peak-wizardry SVG, or some such shit.

although, to be fair, i know that high- and medium-high-profile NBA writers' mentions are a maelstrom of homerism from all quarters, insults, bad takes etc, so if he was getting savaged by dumbasses with "617" or "jae crowder MVP" in their twitter handles/DNs, i can understand the urge to snark back. (this urge informs about 45 percent of matt moore tweets)

i've watched a lot of cats do weird and interesting things (slothroprhymes), Monday, 24 October 2016 16:47 (two years ago) Permalink

rn, as a blazer fan, if I had the chance to trade terry stotts for brad stevens, I'd think about it for a bit, but I'm pretty sure I'd stick to stotts, on the basis of his proven ability with these players. they are both in the upper echelon and nearly neck and neck over the past 3 seasons. also, terry is almost literally my next door neighbor. god knows what kind of stupid neighbor I'd get if he moved out.
