RE: The NBA Thread
^^^ I it would interesting to see if the Warriors can still win without Durant. People forget their one championship without him they only won because Kyrie and Love were both out. If it werent for that Cavs would have been back to back champs. The following year they had no business beating OKC, they only made it to the championship by the skin of their teeth to lose it anyway.

RE: The NBA Thread
Cleveland does not win that Finals if Green didn't get himself suspended. Aside from that GSW has always been a heart attack team but evreyone choked up in front of them. During their record season they put too much on chasing the record (oddly it was Green that pushed the team to go all out for it ).

I don't think much changes with Durrant on the team or not. His core value is that he can take over a playoff game or two each round. Overall though, the team and that system can function at a high level without him. He gets projected not be more important than he is.

Here are other heart attack moments..

OKC gagged it up.

Spurs would have rolled them I'd Zaza didn't take out Kawahi

Houston gagged it up.

GSW is setting up to have some turmoil before Boggie comes to save the day, if anyone will be a chest code it will be him.

RE: The NBA Thread
Without Durant probably depends what they get from Cousins at the end of the day. Reality is they're by far the best team with Durant and probably still the best team without him, other teams just have a chance and an injury/suspension becomes a decisive factor rather than a slight obstacle.

Lot of people forgetting that Cousins will join that team and even at 75% of what he was, that's a ridiculous level addition sometime after the all star break.

East playoffs will be good. First time in a long time now the East has a competitive stack of teams.

Toronto
Boston
Milwaukee
--
Philly
Indiana

All the above are studs or near stud teams and will make the East playoffs go with long series.

RE: The NBA Thread
What do you guys think the Rockets can do to become competitive enough to beat Golden State, or did that opportunity wash away last season? They got rid of much of that team and banked on Carmelo and it was a disaster like anyone with half a brain could see. Is the answer to wait for a GSW team member to go into free agency and grab him?

The Rockets are capped out and the Warriors would never trade them any of their important pieces, so I don't see how they can get a key Warriors player.

The Wizards seem open to blowing up their team. Beal or Porter would be good fits on the Rockets. Eric Gordon is a good player, but the Rockets are too small with him on the floor with Paul and Harden at the same time. So they can offer him, and exchange picks and salary filler depending on which one they get.

Paul, Harden, Beal/Porter, Tucker, and Capela would be formidable against the Warriors. But that lineup would still be inferior to the Warriors, so they would need good luck or a Warriors injury to win this year. If the Warriors beat them, they would have to hope that Thompson or Durant leave next summer to give them a good shot in the 2019/20 season.

Denver Nuggets have a lot of depth at all positions and a really good bench -- maybe elite level. Mason Plumlee might be the best back up center in the NBA:

Dwight Howard is getting exposed badly by a tranny just like Tiger Woods got exposed, right now. Shit is getting viral. Well, didn't plenty of us already call him out for this? I bet many pages back is the video of him grabbing a teamates nuts during a game when he used to play for Houston. That shit was suspect as fuck back then.

At least a bus, since getting hit by two cars didn't seem to do anything.

Yikes, I went down a rabbit hole. So Dwight apparently had a trans girlfriend who he cheated on by engaging in tranny orgies organized by a notable black trans prostitute, and now both Howard and Howard's team has been threatening trans girlfriend, who decided to respond by reveling everything via Twitter.

But the plot thickens as this trans girlfriend was the same person who tried to shake down a rapper by the name of Playboy Carti last year by using fake Dms showing they were in a relationship and she was proven to be a liar.

So now the credibility of tranny is in question, but one interesting piece of evidence is that Howard missed games this year because of a "butt" injury and his tranny girl claimed that he's a bottom, so it follows that he got rammed too hard one night and couldn't play basketball the next day.

But just in case you thought this couldn't get more weird, here comes Tariq Nashid with this woke truthbomb:

There is an audio recording of him denying with that tranny, but honestly why is he having a conversation with one in the first place?

Kobe knew all along when he called him soft.

Are the Warriors gonna recover after the KD - Draymond drama? They seem really vulnerable right now. I would say this year's title is wide open. No guarantees anywhere on the horizon.

Unless is one of them gets injured I think they'll be just fine. Their only struggling because Curry is out.

Now after the season is a different story, I think one of them will leave, probably Durant. It would be nice to see him back in OKC again.

Denver is one of 2 teams (the other being SA Spurs) who have a winning record against Golden State during the last 3 years.

If there is no shady officiating by the refs and NBA, Denver could beat Golden State in 5 or 6 games in a playoff series. Nuggets are a matchup nightmare for the Warriors.

As a Raptors fan, I would rather face Denver (I like Jokic and their team as well) in the NBA Finals than Golden State.

PC NBA is treating this drama with Dwight as you would expect. Nobody can question that is strange and gross to engage in any type of relationship with a tranny, you can't question that part but all else is fair game apparently.

Yes and also because Draymond has missed games. That GSW team does not roll and flow unless Curry and/or Green are out there.

Not sure why the front office is bending over to keep KD when it is obvious the team is a dud without Green and/or Curry.

KD off to the Knicks. For ego-obsessed and insecure KD the only thing that will motivate him will be to take the MIA Knicks and turn them into a contender. Truth is also if he did the crazy and delives a Championship to the Knicks (and Bron does not for LA) KD will be etched in stone and bronze and be an NYC legend and god, IMO that is the only shit that would satisfy his soft self.

Denver Nuggets are the best team in the Western Conf. right now. They play Toronto next Monday, Dec. 3rd, that should be a good game.










Top 3 teams in the NBA:

1.Toronto
2.Denver
3.Milwaukee

Nuggets are good for sure. If the warriors are not 100% healthy(one or more of their key pieces are out for the playoffs), they could easily not advance to the finals. Hell, even if they are all healthy for GSW, the Nuggets could get hot and stay hot and fire on all cylinders they could beat the warriors in the playoffs. The Rockets nearly did this last year. That said, it's going to be very difficult for any team to get past the warriors if they are 100% healthy.

I looked up Denver-GSW matchups the last 3 years and over 8 games its even (4 wins, 4 losses).

If they meet in the playoffs, I think its 50/50 on who the winner is.
