re: NBA: Injury Ball

I think James Harden shoving Mario Chalmers is going to constitute a 6-8 game suspension.

As well as LaMarcus Aldridge landing a shot on Serge Ibaka.

Too early to tell but Simmons could be something very special. First 4 games in his career, 3 double doubles and a triple double against the Pistons. Can't see anyone other than Lonzo challenging him for Rookie of the Year early on.

SIXERS :mark:.

Word on the street is Bledsoe is targeting the Cavs.

If the trade goes through, the Suns will receive the Nets' early draft pick and Channing Frye.
Not happening.

If they do make a trade, the Suns will get the Cavs' own pick, which would preclude them from trading the Nets pick for the rest of the season. But the Cavs trading the Nets pick for Bledsoe would not only be a gross overpay, it would also be running laps around every other competing offer.

For what it's worth, I think Lonzo/Ingram are the two most mature 19/20 year olds in the league and I really hope they pan out because of it as they would be GREAT for the "culture" we could potentially build here with them as our centerpieces.

So apparently it took LeBron James "officially" starting at PG for people to realize he's the best facilitator in the NBA :lol. Nothing changed except the label. By the time he retires, he will be the ONLY player to be top 5 all time in points, and top 10 all time in assists.

I honestly don't know why Lebron hasn't moved to the 1 full time tbh. Even in the past I always thought he should've done it, he's got all the skills and his size/speed/strength means pretty much every PG in the league is at a huge disadvantage playing opposite him. Magic was a tall dude who played point and he didn't have close to the physical attributes Lebron has, just seems like a no brainer. Especially these days when PG's are so dominant in their roles, why not put the best player in the league against them and shut down the Currys, Hardens and Westbrooks with sheer overwhelming power?

@AryaDark @L-DOPA @Legit BOSS

Beale can go to heeelll for his antics against the magnanimous :dray That fight was on Beale. He was frustrated that :dray had blocked a shot a possession earlier, pushes :dray from behind on the :dray effort to box out, :dray gives him a little elbow, nothing out of the ordinary, fairly mild, actually, and Beale goes to the face, and we have an East Bay melee.

Warriors need to tighten up in all areas, but especially in not turning the damned ball over like it's going out of fashion.

Watching ZAZA attempt to finish is one of the most mind-numbingly awful experiences a basketball fan can have. My goodness.

Having said all of that, it was fantastic to see LOONEY actually finally ball out and contribute mightily in a big win for the DUBS over the Wizards.

WARRIORS are playing way too loose for their own good. As :kerr noted following the game, on at least a dozen different occasions almost no one on the floor knew which play they were running out of a timeout. I get it. This team is so otherworldly-talented that they are bored with the regular season, but, c'mon, fellas. A little more focus would go a long way, and it would help prevent having to go all-out at home to overcome an 18-point deficit in the third quarter against the Wizards.

That said.... DUBS 4 LIFE!!!! :mark: :cheer :woo :dance :dance2 :dancingpenguin :curry2 :klay :dray :kd3 :kerr

Cavs getting blown out left and right to start the season. Maybe having almost no defence on the roster without a second scoring machine to keep pace with the scoring is a bad idea? They need IT back so bad.

They give no effort defensively. JR Smith has been awful. Kevin Love isn't as aggressive offensively as he should be. It also doesn't help that LeBron wasn't able to play much with them in the pre-season or training camp. Either way, this is a surprising start for them.

I think the issue is more on offence than defence. :shrug

At least the Warriors are also stinking it up in terms of results so far as well. Cavs have the excuse of no IT, Warriors seem to not be interested at all giving up huge runs in every game. :lol
