Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?

Unfortunately Westbrook is about a million times the defender Kyrie. Like it isn't even a contest on defense. Kyrie is one of the worst defensive guards while Westbrook is one of the best.

I don't know, Westbrook is definitely a better defender than Kyrie, but like Wade of late, Westbrook gambles and plays Matador D.

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?

yeah, I really hope he stops. Happened with Rondo too because he was actually a great defender before and then he just doesn't even seem to try anymore. Kobe is the same but I'll give him a pass as he proved to be one of the best defenders at the guard poistion of ALL TIME before he just became a lazy ass that only tries on offense and sometimes on defense. But when Kobe does try it's still pretty worthy for me.

Kobe can activate that Lockdown Defender signature anytime he wants. I just wish he did it more often to shut up all of the kids crying "KOBE IS DONE!1! HE CAN'T GUARD ANYONE!"

Anywho, the Bulls upcoming schedule looks really bad.

Pacers
Magic
Heat
Cavs
Bucks

The Cavs suck, and I'm not even sure we'll win that game if Noah and Deng play like they did today.

Then again, they have been playing like 50mpg the past couple, so hopefully Thibs lets his starters rest a bit.

Bench Mob has definitely improved from last year, only person we didn't replace is Asik, who is having a monster year.

With Rose back, and when he is confident in his abilities, I think we could make a legit ECF run, and maybe Finals if everyone steps up.


But if we aren't going to be a top 4 seed, just tank and sit Rose out for the entire year.

Only activate him if we have a good chance at making a run.

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?

Did you see the Cavs game against the Lakers? When Kyrie iso'd on him I legit started marking with the crowd(mostly due to the one on one we never got to see in the Summer, but I do remember Kyrie saying "you know you would have to guard me too" which he got to do) and then when he blocked him I jumped out of my seat in excitement. DAT KOBE.



I still think Bulls should have tanked in the worst way to possibly get another superstar in Shabazz. They would have had to trade Deng for picks or younger prospects and amnesty Boozer but I ultimately think it would have been worth it.

Honestly? I haven't been drinking that Shabazz-Aid, and don't plan to. Initially, I believed Boozer would have been good for us when he was first signed, but I guess he left his offense with Sloan and in Utah. Dude just takes fadeaway jumpers now, and can't even bang with scrubs in the low post, fucking useless. We should have went after Mayo in the off-season.

Kobe's defense has always been on point, and I believe that moment wasn't a "turn-back-the-clock" event.

Vince Carter deserves to be in the HoF.

I have always loved the Bulls, but follow the Raptors closely as well, and things are finally starting to look up for that team. BRICKNANI ON THE OUTS!

It is disturbing to know that a lot of players today don't take pride in defense anymore.

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?

well even if it wasn't Shabazz someone like Noels would have been good for them(he can play PF right?), I just don't think they can get it done with one superstar and a bunch of role players. I do think they need another STAR and although Deng and Noah close, I don't believe they are at that level, but Noah certainly could be if he keeps up this level of play.

Oh yeah, I know Kobe still has defensive ability because it wasn't like he was relying on athletic ability to defend people. He just knows how to do it. He just gets lazy, especially now with Dwight on the team. He just doesn't like exerting a lot of effort on that side of the ball anymore.

Meh on Vinsanity, he deserves to get in eventually, I don't think he's a first ballot guy or anything though.

Raptors better tank next year for Wiggins.

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?

Noels is going to be good, but right now, we don't need anymore defense. I would just like someone WHO CAN SCORE, BUT NOT CHUCK AT THE SAME SOMETIME! Deng has been our first option, and it isn't pretty. Noah may not be the best interior defender, as in altering shots as much as a Dwight, Drummond, or a Noels can bring, but his man-to-man is still fantastic.

Give me a A PG/SG that can score on 55+ TS%. I don't even care at this point if they are Derek Fisher on defense. CAN SOMEONE JUST PUT THE FUCKING ORANGE THING THROUGH THE HOOP!?


Raptors' tank jobs never come up with the number one pick, but they have been getting some good pieces in dat JONAS and TROSS!

Cody Zeller, man. He's the best player in the draft, assuming he comes out.

What do you mean "Celtic fans"?

When have I ever said Rondo was a top 3 PG?
