Re: NBA - Regular Season Discussion

To be fair, Bogut was a mid season acquisition and a sudden one at that. And at best, he was going to be a role player on 20 minutes a night.

Hayward was signed in the offseason, giving plenty of time of anticipation and build up to the moment he steps out on the floor with Boston. He was expected to be Boston's second best player. And he was coming off of arguably his best season.

This is simply heartbreaking stuff. I don't think Boston had any legitimate chance of beating Cleveland, but in the end that isn't what's important. This is a injury that could potentially impact Hayward as a player going forward. Hopefully that won't be the case and he can come back strong from this. Bogut is already well past his all-NBA third team days. Gordon's still in his prime.
Yea I thought it was start of season but it was after signing mid season. Shows how little I follow NBA. Just thought the connection of bad injury in debut was weird.

Re: NBA - Regular Season Discussion

I'm not going to take money from you over this. It wouldn't be fair. I'll give you your $300 IF the Celtics can manage to knock off Cleveland. But if Cleveland wins, I don't want your money.
why would u want to take even a tiny risk giving me $300, and not getting anything back in return? we can just call it off. sounds like hayward will be out the remainder of the year, although they may just be saying that so the media doesn't ask about it every game for the rest of the season.

I love how Boston announced that Gordon will be undergoing surgery.

Yeah, no shit.

I know it's only been 26 minutes, but give Toronto the championship now!

Because the fact that you still even think Boston has a chance, let alone had a chance to begin with even with Hayward, makes me feel sorry for you. I get it, you love Boston. You're a homer, and that's by no means a bad thing. But your lack of knowledge regarding Irving's game, who you somehow think is the missing piece Boston needed, as well as basketball in general, has resulted in you being absolutely 100% convinced that Boston was going to come out on top if they were fully healthy, when in reality it was a very unlikely scenario that not many people envisioned, and there's a reason for that.

In other words, I am pitying you. I should have pitied you at the time I took this bet, but instead I was laughing my ass off with four other guys in the chatbox who all thought you were crazy for taking this bet. But if I do in fact somehow and someway still lose in the end, then I am going to punish myself and give you $300 for it.

re: NBA: Injury Ball

that doesn't make sense though. there is no longer a bet, so there is nothing for u to lose. if u want to play russian roulette, i won't stop u, but i don't expect u to actually send me money even if the c's win.

Markkanen with a solid debut tonight.


Portis knocking Mirotic the fuck out was a blessing in disguise, as no doubt Mirotic would've started and messed with Markkanen's minutes.

Your reasoning for how Boston could have beaten Cleveland didn't make any sense. In this case, it's not about making sense. I am pitying you. I am throwing you a bone. Celtics aren't going to win. They weren't going to before, but that's irrelevant.

The imagery of portis koing him is unexplainably funny

re: NBA: Injury Ball

Wade is officially washed btw.

Hopefully Ingram keeps hitting his shots. He's aggressive, he has good bball IQ, he makes the correct plays when passing, and his defense is coming along, but he needs to be a consistent scorer too.

To me he reached washed status last season. With that said, I think he's been pretty decent so far for Cleveland all things considered.

He still shouldn't be starting in my opinion though.

re: NBA: Injury Ball

Well we seem to be doing ok so far despite Chris Paul's knee. I'm just hoping that he gets back soon so they can start working out the kinks when him and Harden are both on the floor. As it is our defensive upgrades seem to be on point and Harden's still the man so we're playing like a better version of last year despite bad 3pt shooting. Feelin pretty happy with my Rockets so far this year.

Sidenote: Curry and KD both got ejected? That's crazy lol.

re: NBA: Injury Ball

Ouch Cavs. Was that blowout lost to the Magic because they got exposed at the PG position (they had to start Jose Calderon). Or because Kevin Love has shown that he should not be a Center and move back to PF? Either way, something must be done for Cleveland.

Two blowout losses for the Suns out of three games. Very embarrassing. Is Earl Watson going to be on the hot seat? He might be unless the Pelicans can't win games with Unibrow and Boogie.
