i'm gonna take the over on 10 games with russ on the lakers but not there for the season

to be the catalog catalyst i need russ in the starting line up with me

expecting the mavs to overachieve just got that feeling

ciderpress, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 17:19 (one month ago) link

jeff van gundy, appearing on zach lowe’s podcast, came out of absolutely nowhere with a take that the lakers should trade for willy hernangomez. he had an entire argument for it ready to go. and he repeatedly called him “billy.”

inside the nba has adam silver on and shaq is telling everyone how he punched many teammates over the years "as a leader"

Vibe check in Atlanta

Trae Young chose to not play Friday’s game vs. Nuggets due to an exchange with HC Nate McMillan during shootaround, per @shamscharania

McMillan reportedly disagreed with Young's shoulder rehab approach and gave him the options to "play off the bench—or don't show up at all." pic.twitter.com/V4DnyoUqKW

McMillan gonna make it to the new year?

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Monday, 5 December 2022 03:41 (two days ago) link

thats bad

lag∞n, Monday, 5 December 2022 03:50 (two days ago) link

surely trainers are the ones recommending rehab methodology and not the head coach (who is not a doctor)

Clay, Monday, 5 December 2022 03:52 (two days ago) link

the head coach (soon ex head coach)

lag∞n, Monday, 5 December 2022 03:54 (two days ago) link

so in reading the story i think the issue is basically that trey wanted to skip shootaround and just play in the game. i have a hard time believing anything useful happens at shootaround so this does feel like an episode of mcmillan exercising control, but also i don't really excuse trey and just hate the vibes of this team

call all destroyer, Monday, 5 December 2022 04:19 (two days ago) link

hawks should get a more contemporary coach imho, not that they dont have othr problems, but still

lag∞n, Monday, 5 December 2022 04:21 (two days ago) link

it's funny because when mcmillan took over for pierce they credited him with providing structure, now they don't like the structure. i mean i don't either but this team has failed up and down at finding the right coach.

call all destroyer, Monday, 5 December 2022 04:23 (two days ago) link

they had one coach then they got nate idk

lag∞n, Monday, 5 December 2022 04:24 (two days ago) link

should probably demand steve nash as his next coach

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Monday, 5 December 2022 05:27 (two days ago) link

like he was utterly swagless as a player, i think hes taken some time to learn how to dress a little

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Monday, 5 December 2022 05:27 (two days ago) link

damn I didn’t know he still had hair!

k3vin k., Monday, 5 December 2022 11:09 (two days ago) link

Definitely working on some elder statesman record producer vibes, like he used to run a label with Quincy Jones and now he's decided to branch out into talent management

Tracer Hand, Monday, 5 December 2022 11:12 (two days ago) link

I’m pretty sure nothing really changed when they went from pierce to Nate. They were underperforming in the first half of the year they let piece go and they’ve consistently done the same thing under Nate. They really need a good coach

doesnt seem like his hand ever goes under it or redirects it

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 6 December 2022 07:58 (yesterday) link

he has his hand wrapped over the front of the ball and pulls it up and back into a stepback motion. i think its a good call

micah, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 11:48 (yesterday) link

cant really see where his hands at for awhile couldve gotten under there

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 12:20 (yesterday) link

its not so much about the hand placement as the unnatural motion of the ball

micah, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 12:23 (yesterday) link

crazy on the fly rebuild by the pacers were witnessing here

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 13:55 (yesterday) link

haliburton and mathurin are huge "slam dunks" nembhard looking pretty nice too

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 13:56 (yesterday) link

they all have weird names in an oddly similar olde timey way

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 13:57 (yesterday) link

now all they have to do is start losing some games

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 6 December 2022 14:19 (yesterday) link

yeah they might be too good

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 14:31 (yesterday) link

maybe if they trade turner and hield

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 14:32 (yesterday) link

nothing fancy but he got the drive game going early and then started hitting the 3....tough to stop if both of those are working

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:00 (yesterday) link

he kinda looks like small haliburton out there, sliding all around almost no jump on the jumper

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:02 (yesterday) link

yeah hes got a trey young looking shot, one motion

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:26 (yesterday) link

he buckled steph at 3:32 on the stepback

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:29 (yesterday) link

re traveling/carrying, devin is mad about how they are reffing poole/curry so he's been trolling and compiling clips of all the stars doing the same uncalled. this one is really wild, these are worse than poole imo

Morant has to be stopped.

lmao yeah ja is def one of the worst offenders

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:37 (yesterday) link

that one he does first in that video he does like ten times per game and its impossible to guard cos it 100% looks like he's pulling up

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:40 (yesterday) link

yeah they should not let him do that

lag∞n, Tuesday, 6 December 2022 19:43 (yesterday) link

ah i see

Anthony Edwards on PnR chemistry: "I gotta learn big Rudy still a little bit more. When he rolls, how long it takes him to get out of the screen, stuff like that."

Then I asked if he has ever played with a straight rolling big -- even in AAU. Ant: "Nope. Nah. Not at all. Never."

he might need to learn to filter himself

not only should they call palming on ja, but after the hundredth time he does it this season they should make him wear a dunce cap.
