watched replay of that game, 1st full game I've seen of Nuggets in a couple years or so. Jamal Murray sure is...something eh?

he hit like 4 3s in a row with the net barely moving...and then threw 2 of the most ridiculous (as in awful) passes I've ever seen in an NBA game.

he's still figuring it out and has to play pg until they find one. but its fun surrounding jokic with all that shooting. wilson chandler not looking like a corpse of late is helping too. its a crime that game wasnt televised last night.

yeah they are a super fun team offensively. I didn't even know Chandler was still in the league! He looked really good.

Nikola Jokic last 10 :

Kobe Bryant didn't mince words when he told ESPN's Jalen Rose that only a "special" kind of player can be a Los Angeles Laker.

The future Hall of Famer, who played his entire 20-year career with the Lakers, was asked whether he would help the team recruit free agents this summer, given the amount of salary-cap space and young talent the franchise has as it attempts to climb back to a championship level.

After laughing off the idea of "coddling" players (or "babysitting" them, Rose suggested) and boasting his rings and team banners, Bryant didn't hold back.

"You know, the thing about this franchise is that you shouldn't need recruiting to come in it," Bryant said. "It takes a special person to want to play for this franchise, and take the pressure that comes along with playing for this franchise. The pressure of following Magic [Johnson]'s footsteps, myself and the dynasty that we've had, it takes a special person to do that.

"And if I need to convince you come here, to carry that legacy forward, then you ain't the one to be it."

The Lakers have 16 championships and last won in 2010, when Bryant was named Most Valuable Player of the Finals for the second straight year. Bryant won five championships as a Laker in seven trips to the Finals; Johnson won five championships in nine Finals appearances.

"When you're here, the most important thing is winning championships. I don't care about anything else. It's winning championships," Bryant said. "You don't have to like each other, but you will show up to practice every day and play hard, you will focus and commit to winning, and you know, if that's the case, then you'll be just fine."

"And if not?" Rose asked.

"Then you can go play someplace else," Bryant said. "That's fine, too. I mean, it's a certain personality that comes along with it. It's a brand thing. I mean, the Lakers stand for excellence. They stand for winning. We don't hang division banners. You know what I'm saying? We don't do that. We don't retire everyone's jerseys. We retire Hall of Fame jerseys.

"... The people that are here need to be able to lift that standard and hold themselves to that standard. Which in turn gives you the ability to hold everybody else to that standard. If you can't do that, you can't be here."

The Lakers are 23-34 at the All-Star break. They haven't reached the playoffs since the 2012-13 season.

although I'll qualify that by saying coach of the year is a dumb award and should probably be voted on by other coaches. it's very difficult for people not on the floor to understand what coaches actually do

He’s got a 21 year old point guard an ancient Pau Kyle Anderson pretending to be kawhi and thousand year old Manu off the bench around lamarcus and some how they’re third in the West

You've never seen a framed check at a business? tsk tsk.

But to be honest, division winner banners are already crossing the line.

These all go WAY over the line. Participation trophies would be better.

i guess what it comes down to is what do you value more: chip count (for which phil is untouchable) or sustained excellence. to phil's credit, neither the bulls nor the shaq-kobe lakers teams ever won titles without him, but they also represent some of the most stacked teams of their eras. pop drafted good players and helped make them great and won 5 titles, many of them rather improbably. he's made the playoffs every year and did so without ever leading the league in salary (i'm not sure if they've even ever been top 5).
