Do you know the definition of the word complaining? I don't think you do because what I was doing was certainly not complaining. I find the situation pathetic and hilarious at the same type because of my Rose trolling, but I've never really cared(except for fantasy) if he returned or not.

When the Nuggets, Pacers & Warriors start bringing in ratings like the Heat do, then they'll get talked about like Miami does. Throughout this whole season you've been complaining about the attention that Miami gets, hell, you were even complaining because the Heat were getting the most attention while they were on a 27 game win streak. I'm not saying I want to see Heat talk 24/7, but if any team deserves to be the most talked about team in the NBA it's Miami. After all, they are pretty clearly the best team in the NBA.
well I already said why I complainined about it why you decided to repeat yourself as if I don't know why they get the most attention. I find it extremely annoying and would rather hear about more teams than that one team, also this has nothing to do with actual basketball but more to do with analysts/basketball sites that talk about the Heat all the time so this has nothing to do with "worry about your own team" shit that I said. Nice try though.

When did I ever say the Lakers could upset the Heat? I have never said that. Never. Maybe you believe that but you're significantly in the minority about that and for good reason.
I meant Spurs.

Quote:
Look I'll admit that me saying the Lakers have absolutely no chance whatsoever was an over-exaggeration but I don't think they'll beat the Nuggets. If I were betting, I'd bet against them beating the Spurs too.

But anyway, the Nuggets this season have been one of the greatest home teams in NBA history while the Lakers have been a mediocre road team. They're on like a 29 game home winning streak. That right there by itself is a significant advantage for the Nuggets.

And I never said the Nuggets would win a championship. Is a high-tempo team likely to win a title? No, they're not. But can they win a playoff series? Hell yes they can. I don't think the Nuggets playing a high-tempo offensive game will prevent them for being able to beat the Lakers. I don't know why people magically think a team won't be able to play a fast-paced game in the playoffs, if the Nuggets can control the pace of the game, best believe the game will be high-paced. On a side note, I don't know why people make up this myth that a high-tempo team can't win a title. If the SSOL Suns gave any effort on defense they would have for sure won a title. We've just yet to see many high-tempo offensive teams that are also great defensively. The Thunder last year were a top 5 highest paced team and also a great defensive team...they made it all the way to the Finals so no I wouldn't say a high-paced team can't have playoff success. You just have to be able to get it done on both ends, which very few have mastered.

And speaking of defense, what the fuck are you talking about with the Nuggets defense? You do realize they are a top 5 defense aka they are ELITE defensively. Fun fact: The Nuggets and the Thunder are the only teams in the NBA that rank in the top 5 of both offense and defense. It seems like you just assume that high-paced teams are bad defensive teams, I recall you doing the same a couple weeks ago with the Rockets. With the Nuggets this is not the case at all. If you think defense will be an issue for them, you're deluded.

And while I think Karl might be slightly overrated, I don't have any reluctance to believe he can outcoach Pringles. None at all.

I honestly don't know what stat tells you that they're top 5 because their defensive rating is around 10th in the league, 23rd in PPA, and 11th in opponent FG% so I would love to know what stat tells you they're top 5 and how they could be top 5 in anything with those numbers being nowhere close to top 5 defensively. Furthermore they were letting up 101 points against them per game. That is not a very good number whatsoever considering the pace. They were going into shootouts and straight up outdoing them offensively as they were scoring 106 PPG, how are they going to do that in the playoffs when everything slows down, defense becomes more important, and you need your defensive stars to step up. Too bad the Nuggets only have one true defensive star in Iggy and Iggy won't be guarding either Pau or Dwight which is the Lakers new plan of attack.

Yes I'm well aware that Karl could outcoach Pringles, but he's really not that much better of a coach as far as I'm concerned and he doesn't have Dwight Howard guarding the paint. The Nuggets love going inside to attack, Iggy/Lawson are both great at getting to the rim, but will they be able to score if Dwight Howard continues to dominate the paint? I highly doubt it as it will be a repeat of what we did to them last year.


btw, Rockets let up the third most points per game and 17th FG% for opponents. FUCK OUTTA HERE WITH YOUR USELESS RANKINGS.

The "worry about your own team" shit was stupid anyway. If I would've praised the Lakers you wouldn't have said a damn thing, but since I didn't, I need to worry about my own team. This is the NBA thread. I'll talk about whatever team I want to. I don't give a fuck if you like what I have to say or not.

And as far as the Nuggets defense goes, yeah I looked in the wrong column. They're the #11 defense in the NBA. So yeah, they're not elite but they're still a good defense. Unless you're deluded enough to think that being a top 11 defense isn't being a good defense. Either way my point still stands, defense won't be an issue for them in the playoffs. UJust because a team is fast-paced doesn't automatically mean they can't score in a halfcourt offense. And with the joke of a defense that the Lakers have, especially their perimeter defense, I still like the Nuggets chances.

The Rockets are 16th in defense in the NBA, meaning they're an average defensive team while you on the other day tried to make it seem like they're an atrocious defensive team. And offensive/defensive rating is the best way to determine the best offenses and defenses in the league, not PPG or points allowed.

And LOL at George Karl not being that much of a better coach than D'Antoni. Just LOL.

No, points against and FG% is the most telling thing about a defense as far as I'm concerned. Pretty sure defensive rating is pace adjusted and that literally means nothing as it just makes high tempo teams come off good defensively when they're still letting in a massive amount of points like the Nuggets/Rockets are.

lol George Karl is awful.
