Chris Paul has never been great, a PG is supposed to make the team better, if he isn't hitting his shots and doesn't make a few passes, he just hinders his team.

Never liked his personality or the way he plays.

Agreed 100%. It drives me nuts when basketball people whose opinions I trust, like Bill Simmons, rate him amongst the best point guards of all time. Why? What has he done? He's been in a bunch of All-Star games and led the league in steals and assists. Great. He's never even MADE it to the Finals despite having played with talented casts and everyone hates him. To me, he's more like a glorified Mitch Richmond than an all-time great.

Davis has done jack-shit all 7 of his years in the league but you guys call him one of the best big men to ever grace this league, so I don't get the Paul hate purely for the lack of credentials.

Re: RAPTORS ARE NBA CHAMPIONS *aka DRAKE WINS*

I'm an LA Native:

Went on the CP3 bandwagon when he arrived in LA. He was overrated, sad but true. I could see earlier on in his career when he could dunk and actually played D, if he had better than Blake and DJ, he would of had a shot. Blake is overrated and DJ is a 1-D player. Blake early on was not a good 3 point shooter so it didnt mesh well with DJ. Now CP and Blake are on the trading blocks.

I've seen betting odds and comparisons and yes Clippers slightly edge out the Lakers but its still too early too tell. I honestly think the Lakers will make one more trade. We may see a buy out for Kevin Love or a trade and they may have to give up Kuzma to get him but that may be ok if you want to win now and need a better 3 point stretch 4 than Kuz, who is Lebron's boy. I hope rather they dont trade Kuz, but keep Boogie if a trade goes down. Right now I see KCP on the block, with Kuzma being a natural 3 so he will be backing up Lebron and AD in his 6th man roll this year.

Right now rumors have Rockets trading for Love giving up two starter's Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker, and one bench player. It would make so much sense for them and Russel and Love are best friends from their UCLA days. EG is only 6"4 and would not be a good fit at small forward, when you have the taller Gerald Green. A starting lineup with Capela, Love, Green, Harden and Westbrook would definitely move Houston into the #1 slot in betting in my book above the Clippers and Lakers.

An inaccurate gross generalization, of course. Davis isn't an all-time great big man; even after seven seasons, he's still as much potential as actual achievement. He's never led a team anywhere and he's only played 70+ games twice. If the Lakers are going anywhere, it'll be because Davis leads them, and that's why I've already capped this upcoming season for them at a Conference Finals appearance.

If history is any indication, Davis will probably end up closer to Dwight Howard than Kareem: a supremely gifted monster derailed by injuries and a vaguely beta in-game experience.

Yikes, poor guy. The already bad Lakers cast just got even worse.

Re: RAPTORS ARE NBA CHAMPIONS *aka DRAKE WINS*

I feel sad for the guy. After that ruptured Achilles to a torn quad and now a torn ACL....from a career-altering to a career-threatening injury. I'd wonder if he needs to lose weight, even if it is muscle. His lower body doesn't seem able to take the load.

Feel unconditionally terrible for DeMarcus Cousins.

The man has lost more minutes to injury than one would want to see any NBA player lose already, and now a torn ACL in the middle of August.

What makes this news only worse is that he had already slimmed down dramatically this summer and was, when photographed only a few days ago, looking as svelte as he has since his days at Kentucky. He looked like he had taken some sort of hybrid of the Draymond Green/Stephen King's Thinner diet regimen.

The reports were that he had lost approximately 35-40 pounds.

And yet this still happened to him.

Brutal.
