Zach Lowe listed the Nuggets as contenders 👀

They are. Nuggets fans deserve their anticipatory excitement.

Giannis shooting 66% from the field and 10% from the free throw line

frogbs, Saturday, 16 January 2021 02:59 (yesterday) link

yeah it is very cute for basically the best player in basketball to go 1/10 from the line

have you watched closely enough to notice his pre-shot process on free throws this season? i've heard media people allude to his process being really bad and inconsistent.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 16 January 2021 03:33 (yesterday) link

Zach LaVine is averaging 28.3 points on 63.4% TS. 39.6% from 3 on 9.3 attempts per game.

38.6% on 5.8 pull-up 3s per game. 43.8% on catch-and-shoot 3s.

Caris Levert out indefinitely with a small mass on his kidney.

Carisis not Leverted for the Pacers. :( (don’t remember which of you gents had that as your screen name for awhile but it was all time)

not sure exactly what they're referring to here but it's amazing they haven't found a way to fix it given his Kobe-like dedication to the game

frogbs, Sunday, 17 January 2021 00:36 (twenty-one hours ago) link

worried about levert :(

i think they were saying his prep is inconsistent, like sometimes he takes a million dribbles, other times he's rushing. hasn't found a routine that works for him that he can stick to.

call all destroyer, Sunday, 17 January 2021 00:51 (twenty-one hours ago) link

The levert thing is pretty fishy tbh.... how did he pass his physical?

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 17 January 2021 01:06 (twenty hours ago) link

Maybe the pacers knew about it and think it’s fine

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 17 January 2021 01:06 (twenty hours ago) link

yeah presumably they found it in his trade physical

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 01:09 (twenty hours ago) link

that was reported as being what happened

call all destroyer, Sunday, 17 January 2021 01:09 (twenty hours ago) link

would our resident doc do me a solid and let me know why a team would be doing abdominal scans (mri? CT?) on a new arrival? you’d think he’d have to be reporting pain for something like that

Clay, Sunday, 17 January 2021 01:59 (twenty hours ago) link

speaking as a doctor bet they just scan that whole mfr, lot at stake why not

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 02:01 (nineteen hours ago) link

should prob just do a bunch of big surgeries too just in case

Clay, Sunday, 17 January 2021 02:24 (nineteen hours ago) link

pull out the extra organs

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 02:27 (nineteen hours ago) link

if you think about it most of the organs are just weighing you down (bad for dunks)

Clay, Sunday, 17 January 2021 02:28 (nineteen hours ago) link

for your typical citizen it doesnt make sense to prioritize dunking but for a basketball player its a different story

the time-honored tradition of forcing your partner to do laps

Clay, Sunday, 17 January 2021 04:51 (seventeen hours ago) link

oh yeah, i read that whole feature. there's kind of a weird media narrative about how competitive giannis is which i assume comes from the fact that he doesn't give the media much else to talk about.

call all destroyer, Sunday, 17 January 2021 04:56 (seventeen hours ago) link

They def don’t know what to do with him.

In other news ja is back in action. And Kd had 42 alongside a 30 point trip dub by harden in a win. That team is gonna be so weird to watch once Kyrie gets back and they settle in. Can they find a way to be a top ten defense? I don’t see a path to that with their roster.

a nice controlled drift (Spottie), Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:12 (sixteen hours ago) link

theres gonna be a lot of nets games with ridiculous scores

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:17 (sixteen hours ago) link

i mean

kyrie - one of the worst defenders in the league
harden - were all familiar with his work
kd - good to great when locked in, not always locked in, unclear what the situ is re major injury recovery
joe harris - actually have no idea
dre jordan - cooked
landry shamet - doesnt look like a good defender
jeff greem - gotta be cooked right

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:28 (sixteen hours ago) link

tbf the best defense is a good having james harden and kevin durant to score a lot of points

Clay, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:37 (sixteen hours ago) link

they shd try to trade kyrie for defense lol

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:38 (sixteen hours ago) link

Yah exactly xp. Cabarrot might be good but not sure. Interested to see how nash (kd) staggers the minutes of the big 3.

a nice controlled drift (Spottie), Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:38 (sixteen hours ago) link

honestly what do they even need kyrie for

Clay, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:40 (sixteen hours ago) link

That may be why they got harden. Trade Kyrie before he retires or takes off a season to go hike Europe

a nice controlled drift (Spottie), Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:41 (sixteen hours ago) link

the current nets roster is bad and hated

call all destroyer, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:42 (sixteen hours ago) link

i wonder what they cld even get for him rn

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 05:42 (sixteen hours ago) link

yeah if he doesn't want to play for a basically guaranteed finals team who is he gonna show up for

Capela is having a great season. That was such a weird trade. Why did Houston give up on him again?

Heez, Sunday, 17 January 2021 16:02 (five hours ago) link

he was injured and they were making a last ditch effort to win a ring before morey and harden fled

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 16:03 (five hours ago) link

Well glad the Hawks took advantage of that delusion

Heez, Sunday, 17 January 2021 16:06 (five hours ago) link

yeah good deal for them

lag∞n, Sunday, 17 January 2021 16:08 (five hours ago) link

Giannis’ free throw problems remind me of Tim Duncan. There were a couple years where he struggled and it really got in his head.

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 17 January 2021 17:04 (four hours ago) link

when guys come into the league work on their shot for years and... it gets worse, thats nba baby
