Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Screw y'all... Mike Brown was GOAT

Statement released by Royce White:

Quote:
In hindsight, perhaps it was not a good idea to be open and honest about my anxiety disorder, due to the current situations at hand that involve the nature of actions from the Houston Rockets. As a rookie, I want to settle into a team and make progress; but since preseason the Rockets have been inconsistent with their agreement to proactively create a healthy and successful relationship. At this point the Rockets are aware of my position and the reason for my absence. Any other response is inaccurate. This is important to me. It is a health issue. I must advocate for my rights. It is a player-commodity league. The failure to meet my requests for support will end with me being unhealthy and that is not a consequence that I am willing to accept to play any sport.

Not a direct response but what the Rockets plan to do with Royce:
Quote:
The Houston Rockets are fining Royce White for every day he remains away from the team or does not attend sessions with a therapist arranged by the team, according to a source.

White began expressing displeasure about his lack of playing time a week ago.

White met with Rockets general manager Daryl Morey on Wednesday and then again with Morey assistant coach J.B. Bickerstaff and assistant strength and conditioning coach Dave Macha on Thursday.

White suffers from an anxiety disorder.

White did not attend practices on Sunday or Tuesday and skipped Monday’s game against the Heat. Morey had planned to discuss sending White to the D-League.

Rockets owner Leslie Alexander on Tuesday said that there were “internal repercussions” for White missing practices and games.

The Rockets have no plans to trade or release White.
Should be interesting...

Not saying much considering they still have a losing record ....Value gotta be shown in win column imo...Not saying you gotta have the best record but at least some kind of ground to stand on

LeBron is the MVP right now, right behind him is Carmelo

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Screw y'all... Mike Brown was GOAT

MVP for me right now is Carmelo but it's still way too early to determine it. We're only 3 weeks into the season, majority of teams haven't even played 10 games. But yeah, it's still interesting to speculate so whatever.

But to go along with my statement, if Carmelo continues to play at such a high level and shoot efficiently like he has, play good defense like he has, and the Knicks are a top 3 seed in the East. Why not Carmelo for MVP?

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Screw y'all... Mike Brown was GOAT

Value and wins have little to do with each other. They hardly ever have. MVPs have been for the most part always at least a top 3 seed in their respective conference. That's absolutely ridiculous. Teams that are top 3 are hardly EVER that good due to just one player's ability and value, yes that includes Lebron on the Cavs as that team was structured to support his weaknesses which is why they did so good every year in the regular season. A team that is top 3 is usually top 3 because of many things, such as the bench, role players, playmaking, how good the coach is, etc.

Knicks aren't winning right now because Carmelo is playing great. If it was just him playing great they would probably be 3-2 or 2-3; they're doing great because the team collectively is playing at it's best and each player is fulfilling their roles. Yes Carmelo is the best player on the team and is playing at his best, but they're not perfect right now because of just him.


And this isn't me saying that Carmelo, Lebron, whoever doesn't deserve to be MVP. I'm just making a point that the amount of games won by a team has nothing to do with how valuable one player is.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Screw y'all... Mike Brown was GOAT

I'm well aware that Carmelo's play isn't the main reason the Knicks are undefeated, it's their defense as to why they remain undefeated. But historically that's the way the MVP works, the best player on a team that's a top 3 seed. If Carmelo continues playing at a high level and the Knicks are top 3 seed, it's very possible he could win it. He already has the advantage of having the NY media hype machine behind him.

Literally speaking, that's true, but would you pick as the MVP some guy whose team is ranked No. 21, or a guy whose team is ranked in Top 3-5?

Btw, if you actually completely believe in the second half of your sentence, then you're leaving in a fallacy.

Carmelo doesn't have to be the main reason, but he's got to play a vital part plus they have to be a winning team, plus it has to be visual that the team could not be as good without him..Could the Lakers have started the season 1-4 without Kobe and fired their coach? Yeah, but they did it with him. There's always points in a season little things like that separates players. Melo is gonna have his stretch where his value will be tested as well as if the Knicks can still win imo..But right now? Melo is on a undefeated team where he's the leading scorer so it's hard to provide anything that says he shouldn't be MVP a week or so in...

One thing's for certain, you replace Melo with Amar'e and this team is not undefeated.

Barbosa is balling right now.
